The OT Levels were developed by L.Ron Hubbard after 1966, the year he first delivered the Clearing Course.
OT I through VII were released one by one between 1966 and 1971.
On June 30, 1973 L. Ron Hubbard wrote SCIENTOLOGY, CURRENT STATE OF THE SUBJECT AND MATERIALS, a bulletin where he states: “OT levels as they exist in Advanced Orgs were completed by 68.There are perhaps 15 levels above OT VII fully developed but existing only in unissued note form…”
Many people appear to have never duplicated the meaning of the phrase “UNISSUED NOTE FORM” and expect to find full Bulletins and completed write-up and compilations.
In 1969, L.Ron Hubbard issued a confidential bulletin, which is the only bulletin bearing OT VIII in the title or the distribution.
In late 1978 NOTs was released amid much fanfare and promoted by L.Ron Hubbard as the missing piece of tech necessary to prepare a case for OT VIII.
In 1981 an official Church Directive announced the naming of the OT Drug Rundown as NEW OT IV, Audited NOTs as NEW OT V, Solo NOTs course as NEW OT VI and SOLO NOTs auditing as NEW OT VII. Contrarily to FREEZONE conspiracy theories and disinformation spread by ignorant people that had no information, the Original OT LEVELS WERE NOT CANCELLED at that time. Quite on the contrary the same Executive Directive and a subsequent clarification explicitly stated that the original Levels were to be called “ORIGINAL OT…” rather than “OLD OT …” to avoid technical degrades and that they were not cancelled, but rather to be done after NOTs was completed. In 1984 at Flag, foreign students that could not enroll on the SOLO NOTS because it was not translated in their language were still doing the original OT Levels OT IV-VII. I was even called once to do a review on original OT V and VI. The year was late 1983.
Another false datum dreamed about SOLO NOTS is that “Suppressives have split NOTS and SOLO NOTs into two separate levels. The idea that SOLO NOTS is an entirely different level and to be delivered at FLAG ONLY (as the only place with the resources to deliver it standardly) comes from L. Ron Hubbard himself. Those who complain that their case is suffering from being unable to do SOLO NOTS are simply in need to have their case repaired on the level(s) they were run on, not get into a new level while still being some restimulation.
Confidential issues released in 1982 for SOLO C/Ses and AO Review auditors only clarified, based on LRH recommendation and technology that the ORIGINAL OT IV – VI, levels which primarily deal with clean exteriorization and ability to operate outside a body, were best done after NOTs, because the phenomena that NOTs address can often act as an impediment to getting the full gains possible on those original OT Levels. There is even a confidential Solo C/S ONLY bulletin about the original OT VI that list phenomena subsequently fully described in the NOTs materials, as the major obstacle to getting the OT abilities and stability promised on that level.
It is astonishing to see the number of false data being spread by people who never trained in AO Reviews (NOTs is NOT the same level as AO Reviews and there are over 100 pages of original OT III-VII materials that are not in the courses given to the students nor on the NOTS course, but only in the SOLO C/S and AO Review auditor courses. Most people spreading false data are merely spreading their own speculations based on ignorance.
Contrarily to Freezone hype and propaganda the ORIGINAL OT VII has been continuously delivered at Flag and the AOs by graduates of the AO Review auditor courses to pre-OTs on OT III and who had just completed the level whenever it was adjudicated necessary by the Solo C/S. As an example, between 1982 and 1992 (the year I left Flag) ,I delivered over 25 ORIGINAL OT VII AUDITED RUNDOWNS.(Original OT VII consist of an audited Rundown audited by an AO Review Auditor followed by a Solo step).
Just over a year ago, when I sought to correct the hype being spread by a “popular auditor” and “Freezone Authority” who was boasting about being the first to have audited that rundown since 1982, by politely pointing that I had audited over 30 of those Rundowns between 1982 and 2010, I was instantly attacked by his fanatical followers who still view as a fiend anyone hinting that their idol may be mistaken in any of his utterances.
I have even found out that the same auditor is using a bootleg version of the original OT VII. The version that auditor use is one created by the Church of Eductivism, a Scientology splinter group from the 1970s led by Jack Horner who has been branded multiple times by L.Ron Hubbard as a fiend and master of deception. On that version of OT VII, most processes were not written by L. Ron Hubbard and the approach taken to the level is radically different than the one written by L. Ron Hubbard.
It does not prevent his fanatical followers to proclaim on every roof that they view him as the pillar of standard tech in the Independent field (beside the fact that I have written 3 retrains on him for serous tech alteration and I am still awaiting compliance). Another “FREEZONE AUTHORITY” doing the same thing has built their practice on the hype of having once been trained by L. Ron Hubbard, even though they currently prefer to sell other practices ranging from UFO and Alien Channelling to Shamanism, while still pretending it is Scientology. Sadly they do it because they need the income from the clients they lure in and because those practices require little to no skill to deliver compared to expert C/Sing. The sad truth is that the auditor in question has become incredible rusty on the subject of standard tech is deeply afraid to be found out and therefore pretends to still be a master at it.
FOR THE RECORD: THE VERY FIRST ACTION OF THE ORIGINAL OT VII IS AN ASSESSMENT.
If the Original OT VII you received is not like that, then you most probably received EDUCTIVISM, not Scientology, whatever you auditor thought or may have told you.
THE OT LEVELS BEYOND OT VIII
Contrarily to the multiple statements that were made by the propaganda machine of Marty Rathbun and by his worshippers: The Original OT LEVELS above OT VIII were both created and audited by L. Ron Hubbard and do exist but, as AS STATED MULTIPLE TIMES: “only in unissued note form” These notes typically range from simple LRH session worksheets to hastily handwritten notes similar to “old cuffs” published in the 1950s.
The truth is that Marty Rathbun was not on tech lines or overseeing them until the late 1990s. If he had been trained on the Ls rundowns, he would know that within exist three mentions by L.Ron Hubbard in the L-10 materials (two in his handwriting, one in a typed bulletin) that L-10 is based on his research and discoveries made on OT VIII to XV. L. Ron Hubbard has never been known to make deliberately false statements in tech materials. Further, I have conversed with several of the people that were responsible for the safekeeping, testing and compilation of the technology during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Each of those individuals independently stated the same thing: they had seen the folder containing the research notes on OT VIII-XV and beyond or some of its content and they confirmed the existence of those Levels. Marty Rathbun has never had conversation with those individuals and in fact they would not even give him the time of day, based on Marty’s track of supporting OSA attacks on tech defectors for well over a decade and his confessed history of physical abuse of people under his command, not to speak that he was for a number of years the right arm of a degenerate and tech basher/squirrel named David Miscavige.
I have spent hundreds of hours reconstructing those levels and have offered them to ethical individual who were technically ready for it. The results were everything that was hoped for.
Sadly a number of fanatic bashers have decided that Marty Rathbun is as infallible on technical matters just like the Pope is on matters of Catholic faith. My technical assessment of Marty Rathbun falls very short of the hypnotic faith some of his followers have in him.
One of my most virulent attackers was someone who never bothered to communicate or email me before he launched an attack by putting words in my mouth and accusing me of making statements I never had made.
The same individual professes to have abandoned belief in Scientology in favor of Buddhism, while having no problem charging large C/Sing fees for OT III, a level he apparently no longer believe in. Further, he uses the excuse of being a “Swinger” to justify his repeated attempts at getting his female public and trainees in bed with him.
Here is someone who is nowhere near ready for the next OT Levels, therefore should not have to concern himself about the availability of such.

We in Milestone Two believe that happiness and freedom depend upon restoration of understanding and trust between man and his fellows.
How do you establish trust with another? How can understanding be reached by two individuals with different views?
The only way is to build on Affinity, Reality and Understanding, through Communication.
It seems too simple an answer — but a failure to communicate, an inhibition to communicate, or a non-confront to talk will never resolve the barriers, the charge and any upset that keeps people not understanding each other.
Let’s take an all too classic example of a teenager that engages in an activity that is seen to be wrong, out-ethics or against the law. Maybe getting caught under-age drinking, or found to be smoking pot regularly, or experimenting with hard drugs, or getting caught shop-lifting — and efforts to discipline or punish seem to…

Karen Black in 1975’s ‘Day of the Locust’ (Photo: Everett Collection)
Karen Black, the Oscar-nominated star of groundbreaking films of the ’60s and ’70s like “Easy Rider,” “Five Easy Pieces” and “Nashville,” died on Thursday at the age of 74. Her husband, Stephen Eckleberry, confirmed on Facebook that she succumbed to cancer after a two-year battle.
Black trained at the Actor’s Studio in New York under the legendary acting teacher Lee Strassberg before making her film debut in 1966 with Francis Ford Coppola’s early film “You’re a Big Boy Now.” She shot to stardom three years later in the counterculture classic “Easy Rider” alongside Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper as one of the women who join the bikers on a drug trip in a New Orleans cemetery (“Mickey” singer Toni Basil was the other).
Black earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in “Five Easy Pieces” as the country-singing waitress in an unhealthy relationship with Jack Nicholson’s disaffected classical pianist. This led to roles in many high-profile films of the 1970s, including “The Great Gatsby” with Robert Redford, Robert Altman’s “Nashville,” and “Family Plot,” Alfred Hitchcock’s final film. She also hosted “Saturday Night Live” in its second season (she returned to the show again in 1981). Her most indelible work of the decade, though, might well be the TV movie “Trilogy of Terror,” where she played the main character in three short horror films — including the famous solo battle with the Zuni fetish doll.
Karen Black in 2012 (Photo by JB Lacroix/WireImage)Karen Black continued to work throughout the ’80s, ’90s and 2000s, though mostly in low-budget independent and horror films, including Rob Zombie’s directorial debut “House of 1000 Corpses.” She had two projects she worked on before becoming gravely ill: the romantic indie “She Loves Me Not,” which premiered just this past Tuesday at the Midwest Independent Film Festival, and the online project “The Being Experience.”
Black grabbed headlines this past March when she went public with her cancer battle and started a crowdsourcing effort to raise funds for her treatment. Her GoFundMe page nearly doubled its fundraising goal, bringing in nearly $62,000 in donations from fans.
On her official blog, Black’s husband posted an update on Wednesday detailing her struggle with her disease and deteriorating condition. Eckleberry wrote, “One doctor told me that he thought that Karen had only 24 hours to live when she arrive at St. Johns June 3rd, and yet here she is alive two months later.” He went on to say that interactions with fans sustained both of them: “Karen and I have received hundreds of messages from you. Your prayers and well wishes help sustain us. We remain eternally grateful for all the love you continue to share.”
Black is survived by her son, Hunter Carson (they appeared together in the 1986 film “Invaders From Mars”) and adopted daughter Celine Eckleberry
Te estoy enviando un correo electrónico como una amiga y compañera Scientologist. Al entrar en un nuevo año, se espera que el 2012 pueda ser un año de gran diseminacion y un año de progreso real sobre El Puente para todos los Scientologist.
Aunque no estoy en la Sea Org en este momento, servì en la Organización del Mar en Flag durante 29 años. 17 de esos años fueron como Capitán de la Flag Service Organization. Soy un auditor entrenado y C / S, así como un OEC, FEBC y DSEC.
Estoy completamente dedicada a la tecnología de Dianética y Cienciología y las obras de L. Ronald Hubbard. He visto algunos de los resultados más sorprendentes y milagrosos en la aplicación de la tecnología de L. Ronald Hubbard y la absoluta certeza de que vale la pena luchar para mantenerla pura y sin adulterar.

August 7th update from Stephen, Karen‘s husband
A lot of people have been asking me what’s the latest with Karen, so here it is:
Last post I did was mid-June, we were in St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica. A week later, everything the hospital could do for Karen had been done; bacterial infections & anemia handled, heart & lungs working – everything but the cancer itself. By the way, props to St John’s, a top notch hospital with a great staff of doctor’s and nurses.
Karen’s health continued to deteriorate at an alarming pace. She became bed-bound: the spreading cancer having eaten away part of a vertebra and nerves in her lower back. Her left leg stopped functioning. We could not go to Europe as we had hoped. It would have been almost impossible to travel to the airport. So we brought alternative treatments to her bedside. Hardly as effective as doing a full treatment in a clinic, but I firmly believe that these treatments have been keeping her alive. I can’t tell you how many times doctors and nurses have pulled me aside and told me that I better start hospice, as she was about to die. One doctor told me that he thought that Karen had only 24 hours to live when she arrive at St. Johns June 3rd, and yet here she is alive two months later.
I have given up predicting what is going to happen to Karen. In June family members flew in fearing the worse, but Karen is still here. You look at the scans, they tell you one thing, then you meet Karen, and what you are left with is how amazingly alive she is. Maybe it’s her belief system, maybe it’s because she was never one to tune out with drugs in her life, but mostly it’s her innate character. She can’t help but take life head-on and be completely engaged in the moment, always interested, always curious, always present.
My daughter and I have both stopped working so that we can be by her side and we have hired someone to help as well. Thanks to your generous support through this process we can be there for her all the time. We are supplementing traditional medicine with all the alternative care we can afford. This would not have been possible without your generosity.
As a filmmaker I never remain idle, and have been filming this whole process from the beginning almost three years ago – it has been therapy for both Karen and myself, because after all, if cameras are rolling, it can’t be really serious, it’s just a movie, right? I hadn’t planned on doing anything with the footage, until a few weeks ago, Karen reached out to her old friend, Elliot Mintz. Elliot is considered a media guru who has offered advice to dozens of famous clients over the years including Karen. They spoke by phone about ways Karen could share her experience with others, in her own words, in her own way. I spoke with him about the many hours of film I had shot and within days, Elliot presented some ideas for us to consider.
On June 21st, Karen put on her make-up and her hair (chemo is not kind on hair) and had a heart to hear – a bedside talk with Elliot. They spoke for almost two hours. With my daughter shooting second camera in the tiny room, I filmed the deeply moving and candid conversation. Karen of course is very enthusiastic about finding the right platform for some kind of presentation. ‘You can take the girl outta showbiz…..’ so, we will see. It’s still a little raw for me, I’m not sure. It would be an interesting and moving journey to share with a truly unique and original spirit. We are both grateful to Elliot for his support and guidance (He is representing us pro bono).
So, that’s where things are as we begin August. I wish I had better news to report. But cancer seldom allows for that. Karen and I have received hundreds of messages from you. Your prayers and well wishes help sustain us. We remain eternally grateful for all the love you continue to share.

In the last week two OT VIII’s who have been active with the Church in Florida were declared suppressive. The story just grates hard on the nerves and good nature of Scientologists and Scientology. This couple have a son, who had been declared SP as he had been in touch with, or failed to disconnect with someone, who had been in touch with Mike Rinder. They were then given the order to disconnect from their son. They refused. Long story short, this last week they were declared Suppressive Persons and their daughter (and granddaughter) subsequently disconnected from her parents.
Now if this is hard to make sense of, that is not surprising. It is nuts. Complete reverse Scientology and illogical.
But here is what I find even more fascinating…
The couple in question posted on Facebook what had occurred, giving a factual account of the sequence of…

Delivery, outside of the Church of Scientology continues to build in Australia.
There are currently 3 people getting auditing daily and a growing waiting list of persons scheduled for service in future weeks and months.
Today we are thrilled to announce we had a NED for OTs completion, and here is his success story:
“The biggest win I have to date is the realization of who is in charge of ‘me’ and its not the ‘being’ or “whatever” that I have been led to believe these past eons of time.
“The certainty I have uncovered is that I am ‘me’ and I don’t need any permission from any other source to be ‘me’.
“Further — an earlier win was the unrestricted space I now command, which before was a nice possibility to have, and now is a fact.
“Thanks Ron and auditor Lana (and back up crew).”
