    Miscavige did went to Taiwan. No pic but multiple confirmations. I doubt if he gave a speech. No mention of any VIP's. The only C-list TV star had nothing to do with them since she must had been scammed by fellow scilons, trying to be a sale agent of some weight loss detox gadget. GAT II had at most 1000 people attending. Can't be a lot more in the opening. They were calling on family members of new scilons to attend, who didn't have a glue about what they are talking about, scilon speak. Scientologists / staff are so fed up that now we have eyes on the ground. This is one pic that no scilons can claim copyright.

  2. Thank you for this photo. I notice there is no awning over the speaker platform like there has been whenever little David speaks. I'm guessing it makes the teleprompters he uses more visible.

    Tom Cruise invited to open Taiwan's Scientology headquarters

    A visit from Tom Cruise is being sought by a global real estate services firm for the official opening of the Church of Scientology's new Taiwan headquarters later this year, reports our Chinese-language sister paper the Commercial Times.

    The US-based CBRE Group, the world's largest commercial real estate services firm, is the project manager for the Church of Scientology's new branch building in Kaohsiung in southern Taiwan. According to Joseph Lin, the managing director of CBRE Taiwan, one of the company's biggest goals of 2013 is to complete the new building and to bring Cruise, the church's poster child and its most famous member, to Taiwan for its official opening.

    The Church of Scientology is extremely wealthy and has been purchasing properties in Taiwan outright, Lin said. Five years ago, the church paid around NT$500 million (US$17.2 million) in cash to purchase an abandoned hotel in Kaohsiung and spent another NT$500 million (US$17.2 million) to transform it into a new base for its followers and potential followers in Taiwan.

    He Chien-hua, the director of CBRE Taiwan's project management division, says the building was completed last October and is presently being fine tuned ahead of its official opening scheduled for the first half of 2013. The church is in negotiations to bring Cruise to Taiwan to either host or attend the opening ceremony, He added.

    Though Cruise's popularity has waned in recent years, partly due to his affiliation with a church that has been described both as a cult and a commercial enterprise, a visit to Kaohsiung would nonetheless be front page news in Taiwan. His latest film, Jack Reacher, has sat atop Taiwan's box office for the past two weeks and has already taken NT$100 million (US$3.4 million).

    On Saturday, December 7, amidst a burst of confetti and beneath a cloud of balloons, a ribbon was cut on the new Church of Scientology Ideal Organization of Kaohsiung, Taiwan. More than 4,000 Scientologists and guests from across Asia and Oceania were joined by national and city dignitaries for the dedication ceremony.

    Situated just one block from the Love River, site of all traditional Taiwanese celebrations and festivals, the Church's new home stands on Seven Sages Road in the heart of Kaohsiung. The 13-story structure measures 108,000 square feet, making it the largest Scientology Ideal Organization (Ideal Org) in the world and the first of its kind in Asia.

    Crowning the grand opening was the first visit to Taiwan by Mr. David Miscavige, Chairman of the Board Religious Technology Center and ecclesiastical leader of the Scientology religion. Mr. Miscavige led the dedication ceremony and addressed the gathering of Scientologists: "It is truly my honor to join you on a day when so many dreams come to fruition: your enduring dream for what now looms before us; the abiding dream of all Scientologists to bring the legacy of LRH to the Chinese-speaking world; and fulfilling L. Ron Hubbard's dream of returning to Asia in spirit and giving back the wisdom he glimpsed through a long tunnel of time. All these dreams will now come to pass, for this is that day when-as in a Chinese epigram-a ribbon falls like windblown silk as we present Scientology to Asia with a first Ideal Org of Taiwan."

    Founding Taiwanese Scientologist and Master of Ceremonies Dr. Oliver Hseuh welcomed the crowd with this: "On behalf of all Scientologist of Taiwan, we give our sincerest thanks to our community friends and partners who have worked with us for so many years-in particular, to the Civil Affairs Bureau of Kaohsiung City, for their gracious support and sponsorship of our event today. With this opening, we not only extend our thanks, we extend our enduring help to all corners of Kaohsiung. Be it through human rights, drug education, morals education, criminal reform, whatever the need may be-our doors are open and our help is yours."

    National and city dignitaries were on hand to welcome the new Church, including National Policy Advisor to the President of Taiwan, Liang-Chi Tan; Representative of the Ministry of Interior, Dr. Cheng-Hsiung Huang; Founder and President of the Jinghua Society Cultural Foundation, Master Ching-Yao; Director General of Kaohsiung's Civil Affairs Bureau, Tzu-Wen Tseng; Kaohsiung City Councilor Po-Lin Huang; and Chairman of the International Foundation for the Peaceful Elimination of Opium Crops, Lung-Hui Chung.

    In acknowledgement of the Church's years of voluntary service, National Policy Advisor to the President of Taiwan, Liang-Chi Tan, said: "Your Church has carried a legacy of help in our land for more than two decades. As anyone would recall, when the mega 921 earthquake hit Taiwan, it was a disaster of immense magnitude. The Church of Scientology immediately dispatched volunteers to help handle the disaster. So it came as no surprise to me that you were presented by the President of Taiwan with the 'Good citizens, Good deeds' award for your work on that earthquake."

    Further recognizing the significant contribution of Scientology volunteers at all levels of Taiwanese society was Representative of the Ministry of Interior, Dr. Cheng-Hsiung Huang, who said: "For years you have dedicated your time and lives to anti-drug work and human rights dissemination. And so I speak to you today on behalf of the Ministry to proclaim that the Church of Scientology has now won the national 'Excellent Religious Group Award' for 10 consecutive years."

    Founder and President of the Jinghua Society Cultural Foundation, Master Ching-Yao, honored the work of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard when he said: "Mr. Hubbard cared deeply about Man's destiny. We share the same goal-a better world. It must be said that this Church is built to practice all that he envisioned for Man. So you have my most heartfelt blessings that through your kindest efforts, you will make a more beautiful world and bring happiness to humankind."

    In her salutatory address, Director General of Kaohsiung's Civil Affairs Bureau, Tzu-Wen Tseng, said: "On behalf of the City Mayor and the Kaohsiung City Government, I would like to express our appreciation and warm welcome to every Scientologist from Taiwan and overseas. It is our wish that the Church of Scientology's expansion empowers the City of Kaohsiung to flourish and prosper. Let us work together to create a better world."

    Kaohsiung City Councilor Po-Lin Huang highlighted the Church's human rights initiative: "I am particularly proud that I have partnered with your human rights program now for over five years. I have been honored to support many of your city events all of which resulted in thousands of our citizens becoming informed of their rights. You are making a huge impact because your program is not just citywide, it is countrywide, and that means a better and brighter Taiwan for us all."

    Lung-Hui Chung, Chairman of the International Foundation for the Peaceful Elimination of Opium Crops, spoke of his successful partnership with the Scientology-sponsored anti-drug program: "As a veteran of drug prevention activities in Asia, your Truth About Drugs materials have given me power and confidence. And most importantly, you have given me hope that even one person can take a giant's step with the tools provided by your Church."
    he new Kaohsiung Church provides all visitors an introduction to Dianetics and Scientology, beginning with the Public Information Center. Video displays, featuring more than 500 films, present the beliefs and practices of the religion, as well as the life and legacy of Founder L. Ron Hubbard. The Information Center also offers a detailed overview of the many Church-sponsored humanitarian programs-including a worldwide human rights education initiative; an equally far-reaching drug education, prevention and rehabilitation program; a global network of literacy and learning centers; and the Scientology Volunteer Minister program, now comprising the world's largest independent relief force. The Center is open morning to night for visitors to tour at their leisure and to return as often as they wish.

    The Church's Chapel provides for Scientology congregational gatherings, including Sunday Services, weddings and naming ceremonies-as well as a host of community-wide events open to members of all denominations. The new Church also houses multiple seminar rooms and classrooms, in addition to dozens of auditing rooms for Scientology auditing (spiritual counseling).

    The Church further includes facilities to translate and produce informational materials on Dianetics and Scientology as well as Church-sponsored humanitarian initiatives.

    Ideal Orgs reflect the fulfillment of Founder L. Ron Hubbard's vision for the religion. They not only provide the ideal facilities to service Scientologists on their ascent to greater states of spiritual awareness and freedom, they are also designed to serve as a home for the entire community and a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift citizens of all denominations.

    The Church of Scientology of Kaohsiung follows the opening of Ideal Orgs in Portland, Oregon; Pretoria, South Africa; Cambridge in Ontario, Canada; Padova, Italy; Tel Aviv-Jaffa, Israel; Los Gatos, California; Buffalo, New York; Phoenix, Arizona; Denver, Colorado; Stevens Creek in San Jose, California; Orange County, California; Greater Cincinnati, Ohio; Sacramento, California; and Hamburg, Germany.

    Other Ideal Orgs opened in recent years include London, Moscow, Brussels, Berlin, Madrid and Rome in Europe; Melbourne, Australia; Johannesburg, South Africa; New York, New York; Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles, Inglewood, Pasadena and San Francisco, California; Tampa, Florida; Nashville, Tennessee; Seattle, Washington; Dallas, Texas; Quebec City, Canada; and Mexico City, Mexico.

    The Scientology religion was founded by author and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard. The first Church of Scientology was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 and the religion has expanded to more than 11,000 Churches, Missions and affiliated groups, with millions of members in 184 countries.

    Is there a useful street address for the Idle Org? "Seven Sages Road in the heart of Kaohsiung" isn't helpful at all, since "Kaohsiung City" appears a large county/province that Google centers on a mountain temple (a real one).

    The approval rating of the Taiwan president is about 9%. So even the scilon press release don't mention his name. He even sent a message to Narconon anniversary. The central govt and ministries are hopeless, and they have a law to promote all cults religions. In contrast, the local govt sent a low ranking unelected official to attend to be polite. She is responsible for neighbourhood watches, funeral parlours and temple registrations.

    The monk is responsible for importing Narconon to Taiwan. His charity has nothing to do with Narconon now. The webmaster basically opened their board for comments to prevent scilons from sneaking in any more Narconon success stories. Cos must have something on the monk. He is a gangster turned Buddhist and was once accused for corruption in a news article.

    The city councillor is well known as the spam king. His email spam for votes reached irrelevant districts far from the county. Cos must have something on him too. He is the only councillor in Taiwan who is associated with Cos. So he has a Wikipedia page about his whole family business and his official councillor feedback page is flooded with full Lisa McPherson stories and such on occasions.

    The official wide angle pictures are taken on the platform shown on the 1st pic. Cos claimed 4000 attended, which shows how sad the superpower opening was. There can't be that much people. The few most popular missions in the north and central sent only one coach worth of disciples each. It's the same when events are up north. So the number of scilons can be count in coach loads.

    But if you manage to close both sides of the road for an hour, the number of locals who are forced to walk across the bridge to total freedom the other side will be in the thousands.

    運作中的希坦一至八級(Operating Thetan I - VIII)的完全經文,可以在維基泄密(找到,但網址暫時在改建中。在此之前 ,詳細的摘要在菲什曼的誓章中(The Fishman Affidavit),也是法庭紀錄,是山達基首席律師確認是真正的。

    菲什曼的誓章後來被法庭封鎖了,但荷蘭作家 Karin Spaink 貼在她的網址,經過多年官司,荷蘭法庭判她勝訴。美國法庭判定這些經文不算是商業秘密,但受到版權保護,所 以公平引用的摘要是絕對合法的。

    山達基教會警告,若不跟從正當步驟讀經文,會染肺炎而死。但這樣死的從沒有聽聞,本人可以作活 生生的例證。

    但山達基人偷看經文是重罪,你們是過不了測謊機的(E-meter),看過了必然斷送了你們的自由之路。事實上,偷看過了而不爆的(blow=離教),教會不會放 過你這個金蛋。

    這個摘要,是根據菲什曼誓章,Stacy Brooks 的透視,和 Maria Pia Gardini 誓章,加上「Mrs Smith」的翻譯,但非山達基人看到了全文也完全不知道是什麼回事,沒頭沒腦的,其他人的解說也不完整, 因為有些概念很難簡短形容,山達基詞彙不可以用普通詞彙解釋,而且有些人完成了某OT級後,也不知道它是什 麼,教會說通過了便通過了。

    這些經文可能有多個版本,教會也有新舊之分。經文是教會最高機密,是不能離開課室的,個人的回憶不盡相同。 可以帶走的資料也不能給任何人看到。所以外人不可以確認那是正確版本。菲什曼的版本是最早公開的,與後期的 不甚相同,他也不是深資山達基人,只是從別人手中得到經文,但只有他的版本被山達基律師確認。


    教會說第一步是要以新鮮的觀點看這個物質宇宙和其它眾生。菲什曼說有三個版本,最新的只有一個「看人」的指 令,執行直到有認知(cognition)。瑪麗亞說是那真是胡扯蛋,就是你自己一個人走來走去,去「看到 」一些東西。她走到咖啡店磨時光,回去說有覺新(wins)便完成了。


    教會說這級解鎖整個時間軌跡(億兆年的宇宙歷史)中偏差錯亂的因素,這些因素使希坦(精神個體)失去天生的 自由。

    偏差錯亂是因為你的希坦在億兆年的宇宙歷史中曾經被「強制性植入」(implants)。你會拿到一張列出 長長的植入表單,包括電擊植入、言語植入等等。你必須深入時間軌跡,一個個把這些植入處理掉。這是在獨自聽 析中完成,聽析中你必須大聲的跟自己講話。 開始聽析時,你必須在時間軌跡上想到光點的出現,然後從那光點去找植入事件,儀表(E-meter)上的讀數確認事件的發生,然後解讀儀表上的指針動作, 來來回回的以「兩分法」(或分裂 dichotomies)處理植入事件, 磨掉(run)它們。

    OTIII 火之牆

    教會說這一級獨自聽析藏著宇宙的秘密,你面對並剷除一直困擾著這個宇宙千萬年的人類心理障礙,一旦完成,被 「時間軌跡壓倒」纏住了的你,可以解放出來。開始這級之前,要簽棄權書,大意是可能發生到你的身體或精神上 的任何事件,山達基組織、其分支機構和成員,一切不負責。

    瑪麗亞是科幻小說迷,早已唸過了,內容跟一本羅恩賀伯特的科幻小說很相似,差點兒拍成好萊塢電影。「銀河系 大魔頭」基努(Xenu),在七億五千萬年前為了解決人口過剩問題,把大量外星人捕捉,掉入地球的火山中, 用原子彈炸得魂魄四散,然後把我們看到的所為現實,花幾星期時間植入這些東西的腦子,之後這些支離破碎的破 希坦(Body Thetan,簡稱 BT)便吸附在人類的肉身上面。誰人若是覺察到「現實」只是灌輸,是會觸發自動毀滅程式,只有羅恩賀伯特發 明的技術,可以打破了這個程式。

    聽析時,你必須跟你身上的破希坦講話,你想著不同的地方,儀表的指針讀數會告訴你破希坦是否在那兒,然後要 它們離開你的身體,再找不到破希坦便通過這級。



    這級要處理「破希坦團塊」( Body Thetan Clusters)。你現在要處理整個時間軌跡裡的藥物,還有你身上破希坦所服的藥物,這些破希坦在你做完 OTIII之後還沒走光,因為他們有嗑過藥。



    原來一切也是破希坦,你的思維、愛、腳趾、鞋、月亮。這些破希坦跟團塊是沉睡型的,你必須把它們喚醒,然後 賦予它們身分地位,這樣它們就會走開了。

    OTV 是這樣做的,聽析員的指令:「觀看你的身體(不是用肉眼),找出破團塊。」當聽析員在電儀表上讀到指數時他 又問:「在哪裡?」你回答:「在膝蓋上。」然後,你必須用心電感應式的交流與那隻破希坦溝通,無聲問它說: 「你是什麼東西?」破希坦可能回答你說:「香蕉。」於是你告訴聽析員「香蕉」。

    有時候答案可能是「一張紙」之類的其他答案,反正你想到什麼就說什麼。聽析員得到答案後又說:「好,告訴它 『你就是香蕉。』」也就是說,香蕉就是它的身分。於是你告訴破希坦它是一根香蕉,在這時它應該就會走開了, 或是它想繼續留在那裡。 如果它在你問「你是什麼東西?」時沒有離開的話,你就問「你是誰?」然後你向破希坦收集了一大串名字:那破 倫,凱薩大帝,約翰屈伏塔……你一一告訴聽析員,他告訴你哪個名字有讀數,那就是破希坦的身分,得到示意後 的破希坦就會離開,打走所有破希坦便完成OTV。



    這一級又是破希坦跟破團塊!而且跟OTV的指令一樣,就是那兩項「你是什麼」還有「你是誰」,但是自己親自 來做聽析的。



    這個等級的正果(the end phenomenon) 是: 各式各樣的破希坦都不存在,沒有昏睡型的、沒有嗑藥的……什麼都沒有,其中一項是壓抑類型的破希坦(sup pressive BTs) 。

    打走破希坦的方法跟OTV和VI是一樣的,不相同的只是一手握雙鑵,破希坦走了儀表指針會浮的。你身體上的 破希坦若是全走了,你的身體在你看來是半透明的。

    有時候,你會遇到破希坦從你身上飄到大門旁邊,你必須想像出一把剪刀,剪掉他與你身體之間的連線。有時候, 你會有層層重疊的破希坦,所以呢,你必須想像出一雙手來把他們揮掉。

    這時你知道,整個宇宙也是破希坦,山達基目的是使整個宇宙消失,一個人怎樣努力也打不走所有破希坦,所以要 地球所有人幫忙。因此阻礙山達基 的人必然要用任何手段消除,因為整個宇宙受到威脅,全地球,所有人億萬年的命運,決定於你現時在這兒做什麼 。因此為甚麼羅恩賀伯特建立了監護人辦事處,把所有政府及敵對的社會轉為完全遵守山達基的規則 。

    很多人獨自在房間內打破希坦,每日數小時,有十五年之久。這些人被剝奪了所有自己的感覺, 他們已經失去了責任感—事實上,失去所有與自己情緒的接觸,自己的想法,連自己的希望和願望。它們已成為沉 溺於不負責任,生活於幻想世界的人。他們真正相 信一個怪誕的未來,其最終目標是山達基世界,這個世界上,每個不同意山達基的人將會靜靜地、沒有悲傷地被除 去。

    OTVIII 真相大白


    OTVIII有數個版本,菲什曼的被稱為「耶穌愛好男孩和男生」版,山達基律師初時指出這文件是侵權,即是 真正的,但後來改口說這是假的。

    其它的版本與瑪麗亞口述的類似,裡面指出:「你編做了(mocked up)你自己的反應式心靈,你編做了你自己的破希坦,你編做了你自己的前生。」裡面包括羅恩賀伯特的斷言( affirmation):「現在知道過去的我不是我,有興趣找尋真的我是誰。」

    基本上,OTVIII 是要你照著 「人類歷史 」(History of Man)這本書裡的題目做聽析,一直從進化軌跡回到蛤蜊(clams)時代,因為人類是由蛤蜊進化成的。你 必須要在時間軌跡裡一路做,回到蛤蜊時代為止,斷定過失行為(overt),然後找出破希坦。

    你要用心電感應方式與破希坦溝通,找出它的過失、寫下來、然後用電儀表問破希坦:「這是你做的嗎?」「這是 我做的嗎?」如果有讀到指數,你就示意那是誰的過失,使指針浮動,就這樣繼續做……結果你會幫時間軌跡裡的 所有破希坦們清掉所有的過失。這就是所謂的真相大白。

    Found it, the ideal org building at 2009. There is the longitude and latitude in it somewhere.七...2D2ePPnfcIPEntdLeLFymw&cbp=12,109.87,,0,-2.84

    This is the address they list on the official facebook ideal org page: 七賢二路329號, Kaohsiung, Taiwan 800 understands this. Because they have that uses chinese. Both maps give the same location, but in this case, google can't find the street address. Google map coverage starts in the north not too long ago, and some areas still have no coverage.
    They don't normally list the English address. (There should be an official one that the post office understands.) Actually you can compare the English and Chinese versions and translate it:
    329, Qīxián 2nd Rd, Xinxing District, Kaohsiung City, Taiwan 800 ‎
    Other centres/missions are not even on the ground floor of a big building. There's no much to see.

    Heh. Looking at the streetview, I was thinking "This is Taiwan, where the heck are all the scooters?!", then I looked across the street and a little further down the street. That gives me a happy in my Kymco!

    Link converted to English:

    Now to compare their distorted wide-angle shots with the real street to figure out how large that crowd really was, and if there was Portland-style photo-editing going on.
