Take a tour of a dead Scilon office!

    A little background, I was researching a potential Scilon presence in Jax, FL and came across some threads on here regarding the Life Improvement Center of Jacksonville. I did some research and found that the office they owned has been vacated and up for sale in the last 9 days. The best part is that the realtor took photos of the suite before they moved out. Below is the last piece I posted and gives some background:

    The Atlantic Beach address is there home at The Bluffs Townhomes--I guess if you're ready to drop thousands to the cult they'll invite you to their homes. The Baymeadows addy is an office complex. The other Jax thread is kinda dead too, I don't think anyone's been out to validate that they are still in operation. The owners seem to be Carol and Darrell Craig, OT8 and OT7 respectively. Here's what I got: WARNING SOME LINKS MAY BE SCILON!

    Corporation WIKI:

    Google Maps view:

    Corporate Info:

    Carol's Sciesite:
    Carol's Sci Completions:

    The corporate info seems pretty recent, so they could still be in biz. If anyone lives out near Baymeadows wants to take a look, just be careful. I think I might see if the office complex has a manager/agent and see if they are still there....

    ....AND we have a winner! I just checked realty records and as of 9 days ago, Unit 1701 is available for purchase and is currently vacant. You can take a tour through their offices and visit their library or enjoy a nice drug rundown in the sauna! The auditing tables are free to use!

    Wow, overcramped space was overcramped. Hey scilons, if putting a bookcase and a desk in the same corner makes it impossible to get out of the deskchair, you fail at interior design.

    I just noticed the e-meter on the desk in picture 13 and is that L Ron on the wall? Do they give diplomas to Sea Org?

    i think 'diplomas' are milled out for any sea org person who needs them for a office wall

    Yeah, looks like a photo of L Ron at his desk.

    Truth About Scientology is not a Scientology site.

    I'm really curious as to when these pictures were taken -- i.e., before or after the Scientology tenant vacated.

    If after..... wow. Just wow. There are tens of thousands of dollars of e-meters, books, CDs and other materials in these pictures:

    I can't believed the materials were just abandoned.

    If before, and given the fact the pictures are clearly taken during daytime, then the tenant gave notice and let the landlord in before the termination of the tenancy to take these pictures.

    I might be misunderstanding the situation. I notice the property is for sale, and not lease. Is it possible the Scientologist actually owns the building, and is now selling? Or someone else owns the building, decided to sell, and gave notice to the Scientologist that the lease (perhaps month to month) was being terminated?

    Just very weird seeing that amount of Scientology material purportedly left behind in an abandoned or vacated office.

    there's no way on earth all that stuff was/is inside a building formerly used by the Clam Corporation. it would be very much OutSecurity, AND OutPR, it's usual for them to remove any visible trace of their previous use of a building

    I can find any date data in the photos. Not really possible to identify this photographer:

    Photographer looks realtor, not clam.

    Also: Awesome job OP, this is great. INB4 SHOOPS!

    Even just the backgrounds are exploitable for shoopers.

    Thanks. The posting is only 9 days old, I'll ask a friend who lives over there to drive by and take a look. I doubt they would leave all that shit there...but, DIBS ON THE SAUNA and that cool-ass e-meter/bong.

    It would be easy to fill that box with water, even have a little fish swimming inside the meter glass, you only need a little water for a bong. Rubber tubes to the cans, one for inhale, one for burn. Simple.

    First Anon to make a fucking BONG out of an e-meter owns a very large piece of the internets.

    I zoomed on the OT cert: I believe it reads Darrell Craig, New OT 5. The other one says "Executive Organization."

    Actually, no. Life Improvement Centers aren't even at the level of Missions, they're glorified bookstores. They only offer the very introductory classes. Think of it as an entry-level recruitment stand.

    What the fuck did they do to the Bridge poster? My copy doesn't have the yellow.

    photo's may have been before they vacated. Landlord may have wanted pics that weren't empty rooms. Kinda like when Realtors will put fake furniture and crap in a show house.

    Really REALLY doubt the clams would have abandoned all that expensive crap.

  28. I've seen a red one online. It's a scilon link from bonafidescientologyDOTorg so I'm not clicking on it. If you want to see it, here's the google image search url for "bridge to total freedom chart scientology" (refined to similar images). Or type it in yourself and it'll be about 16 rows down.;fp=91d1a8072a15ed70&biw=910&bih=428

    I'm trying to find where I saw "mission." IIRC in another thread, someone emailed them and they replied and may have mentioned they were a mission. I'm probably wrong.

    I asked a friend to drive by the office tomorrow to see if the shit's still in there.

    They were just field auditors. From their website: "
    The Life Improvement Center of Jacksonville is licensed by "I HELP" (International Hubbard Ecclesiastical League of Pastors)."

    I'm not sure where they stand in the organization. They deal with the raw meat?
  31. Anonymous Member

    They are field auditors and, yes, they deal with "raw meet." As someone else said, a Life Improvement Center is below the level of a mission and is even more limited in what it can offer. Interesting thing is that, even though it is called a Life Improvement Center, and probably largely advertised as a secular activity, if necessary they are, as indicated by the I HELP licensing, going to assert it falls under the religious cloaking device, and such assertion would probably be successful.

    Oh I see, it's a drawing of a bridge. How quaint.

    Yeah. You're basically looking at personality tests and the entry level communications courses. Strictly there just to get people in the door and on to the rest of Scientology.
  33. Yeah the red one looks like a bridge to me too.

    So this is just the toll booth?

    Office clearing maybe.

    If Scientology is an office building, LICs aren't even the receptionist. They're the door guard.

    IIRC the cult history, the field auditors used to be the ones really driving recruitment. When Hubbard (or was it Miscavige?) gutted it (for money), the inflow of raw meat dropped considerably. The fact that a group of field auditors seem to go out of business may tell us a bit about the state of affairs for the cult.

    The major field auditor "gung-ho" group web sites didn't start to disappear until about 8 years ago, as the mouth at the center of Scientology continued to eat its own tentacles.
