ARC is sacred

Thanks to Old Auditor I now have a brand new set of the Management Series volumes.  Look what jumped off the pages of the first PL in the first volume!


LRH from An Essay On Management (9 January 1951):

He who holds the power of an organization is that person who holds its communication lines and who is a crossroad of communications. Therefore, in a true group, communications and communications lines should be and are sacred. Communication lines are sacred. They have been considered so instinctively since the oldest ages of man. Messengers, heralds and riders have been the object of the greatest care even between combatants on enMEST missions. Priesthoods hold their power through posting or being communication relay points between gods and men. And even most governments consider cults sacred. Communication lines are sacred and who would interrupt or pervert a communication line within a group is entitled to group death – exile. And that usually happens as a natural course of events. Communication lines are sacred. They must not be used as channels of viciousness and entheta. They must not be twisted or perverted. They must not be glutted with many words and little meaning. They must not be severed. They must be established wherever a communication line seems to want to exist or is needed.

Any management of anything can raise tone and efficiency by establishing and maintaining zealously, as a sacred trust, communication lines through all the group and from outside the group into the group and from in the group outside the group.

The most vital lines of a group are not operational lines, although this may appear so to management. They are the theta lines between any theta and the group and the goal maker and the group. Management that tampers with these lines in any way will destroy itself. These actually have tension and explosion in them. It is as inevitable as nightfall that these lines will explode, when tampered with, at the exact point of the tampering. This is a natural law of communication lines.

A line is as dangerous to tamper with as it has truth in its channel. It is safe and even preserving of a line to cut it when it contains entheta. For example when a true line is cut, it charges a little power into the cutter and he has authority for a moment thereby. But it is only the authority of the cut line. If the line is thus made to perish, the cutter loses his authority. If there is much truth in that line, it does not give authority to the cutter, it explodes him.

A group has the right to exile anyone it discovers to be guilty of tampering with any communication line.

A management which will pervert an affinity or sever one may gain a momentary power but the laws here are the same as those relating to communication and an affinity tampered with will lower the tone of a group.

A management which will pervert or suppress a reality, no matter how “reasonable” the act seems, is acting in the direction of the destruction of a group. It is not what management thinks the group or the goal maker should know, it is what is true. A primary function is the discovery and publication, in the briefest form which will admit the whole force of the data, the reality of all existing circumstances, situations and personnel. A management which will hide data, even in the hope of sparing someone’s feelings, is operating toward a decline of the group.

A true group must have a management which deals in affinity, reality and communication and any group is totally within its rights, when a full and reasonable examination discloses management in fault of perverting or cutting ARC, of slaughtering, exiling or suspending that management. ARC is sacred.

  1. One shall not bare false wittness. (one of the 10 commandments in christanity) DM has done alot of that.

    The seven sins are:(false)Pride, Greed,Vanity, Rage, Envy, Sloth(apathy /laziness) and Gluteny(hence obesity).

    The first 5 aply , you can tick them of one after the other. The last two: DM is much to vain to get fat an much to paranoid to be apathic.

  2. My favorite PL, used to cram ED’s of CL V Org’s on this all the time. Love it.

  3. And Marty is holding some lines.

    This jumped out at Me..

    “A line is as dangerous to tamper with as it has truth in its channel. It is safe and even preserving of a line to cut it when it contains entheta. For example when a true line is cut, it charges a little power into the cutter and he has authority for a moment thereby. But it is only the authority of the cut line. If the line is thus made to perish, the cutter loses his authority. If there is much truth in that line, it does not give authority to the cutter, it explodes him.”

    Which make me think, the solution is more communication. After that, more communication. After that…

    Exploding cutters! What a concept!

  4. To quote the local vernacular: “Amen”.

  5. Marty, It amazes me how much basic policy has been thrown out by the current management.
    You can almost open ANY of the Management Series to a random page and find a policy being violated.

    How long can David Miscavige keep this up?

    Based on the communication lines he cut, he’s suppressive in the truest sense of the definition.

    The careful reinstating of disconnection policy has severed vital communication lines inside and out of the church.

    The severing of basic communication into and out of the Sea Org has already destroyed Scientology Management.

    “A group has the right to exile anyone it discovers to be guilty of tampering with any communication line.”

    True indeed.

    I and many others have already done this.
    If DM were to show up at my house, I’d have him arrested for trespassing.

    More and more people have stopped listening to what he has to say.

    He cannot entertain the idea that he may have have done something suppressive. -he won’t even confront his own case in session anymore.

    We all know what this means.

  6. Be-you-tee-full!!

    This made my day. Thank you!

  7. Thought provoking

    Hi Mosey and all,

    This is truly a prophetic reference. Not only does LRH tell the mechanics of Scientology’s potential demise, it tells what he expects the group to do to prevent this from happening. It’s as if he wrote his own “coup” clause, to ensure HIS technology survived.

    “A true group must have a management which deals in affinity, reality and communication and any group is totally within its rights, when a full and reasonable examination discloses management in fault of perverting or cutting ARC, of slaughtering, exiling or suspending that management. ARC is sacred.”

    LRH says it all in this policy.

    If one were to compare Scientology in the 70’s to where it is now, it is not hard to spot that the ARC between Scientologists and management has markedly declined. Within the same time frame, recognition of LRH tech has markedly risen, despite errors in application and delivery.

    The Idependent Scientologist around the world have confronted the truth and exposed the source of this cut communiation line, DM.

    I know of no LRH reference that states one can only “examine a group” by collecting information from only that group and no other source. For all of those Scientologists who have been in doubt about whether or not it was okay to look at articles on the internet, newpaper, etc., read the LRH, again.

    “…when a full and reasonable examination discloses management in fault of perverting or cutting ARC…”

    Never before have we had a chance to take an UNBIASED examination of management, a chance to be exterior to the situation, review all the information, stats, etc. without being harrassed or coerced or manipulated into deciding the greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics (meaning what is the greatest good for the church’s dynamics)…a chance to make up our OWN mind.

    LRH has made it clear that the group has the right to defend itself from destructive management. DM has cut the most valuable comm line I’ve ever had (Scientology and Scientolgists) for far too long. Thanks to Marty’s blog, that comm line is being rehabilitated and it gets stronger everyday. For this, I am deeply grateful. If you observe things are wrong and you feel that you can’t communicate about it, then it isn’t Scientology.

    “A man is as dead as he can’t communicate. He is as alive as he can communicate.” – L. Ron Hubbard, from the book Dianetics 55!

  8. Good lord almigty. Could anything be more apropos? Marc Yager told me once that LRH has covered everything that could happen in an organization in HCO PLs. This pretty much proves what a savant the man was/is.

    So this is our guiding light, right here in this HCO PL.

  9. I am so happy you did post this reference. That’s for me the most single policy on the situation where we are struggling now in and a kind of prophetic statement on it. Every scientologist, independent or not, should know it cold. I agree with Barney Rubble: as a qual sec and ED I used it a lot.

  10. I forgot: read ALL of it. Thats’s a rather long article but probably one if the best philosophical essay ever written over the liabilities of the 3 & 4 D’s.
    Anyway, ARC in the group is sacred. Thanks Marty.

  11. This is the exact essay that Ron recommended I read when I wrote to him about my trepidation regarding the new Exec Strata and RTC.

    I recommend every one read the whole essay since it is quite revelatory and gives the broad theoretical background of what is actually happening to the organization.

    Again I wish the both of you a happy holiday season.

  12. Kathy Braceland

    I know the policy well and love it. Thanks for putting it up here for all of us to see. LRH tells volumes with it doesn’t he?

    These are the real basics…A R and C.

    ARC is sacred!

  13. I could live on that dose of truth for …ever!

    Amen …So be it, So it is!

    Thank you for this great post. Celebrating you, love of Truth, love of Ron, love of friends. What a Sunday.

  14. Interesting isn’t it, that any of us who have dared to be messengers into the church as it stands currently, daring to tell anyone who will listen, that management has rotted and the tech has been preverted, have had comm lines with the church cut cut cut.

    The messengers are “killed”, the unwanted message ignored. None within dare read the message nor will they inspect the data behind what prompted the message.

  15. Hi Mosey!!

    DM should M-9 this, while wearing a dirty rag tied onto his arm.

  16. Under the Radar

    This is a great reference! Marc Yager actually had all of Int Management M9, wordclear and do several clay demos on this reference in the mid 80’s. I found Yager to run the org (CMO Int) in a very on source manner before DM started to unmock him and the entire Int Management Exec Structure that carefully had been put there. Keep up your great work Marty. You are producing a lot of tone arm motion….

    • “I found Yager to run the org (CMO Int) in a very on source manner before DM started to unmock him and the entire Int Management Exec Structure that carefully had been put there.”

      From the limited info I hear on Yager, I’d like to see him take over, but not in a squirrel monopolistic way. I know there are others on the inside and out that agree with this, and I hope we can achieve it.

      I read one account where Yager was put on the decks because he had the balls to disagree with DM, which is another good sign.

      “A true group must have a management which deals in affinity, reality and communication and any group is totally within its rights, when a full and reasonable examination discloses management in fault of perverting or cutting ARC, of slaughtering, exiling or suspending that management. ARC is sacred.”

      Haven’t read that in a while. It allows for the independent movement. God allows for the movement but it’s nice to see LRH come out and say it. Use it in your dissempersuasion!

        I second that, I know the guys heart, I hope it is not lost in the enforced valance he carries of late

  17. hello all. Its sun. Night. I just got a phone call from the co$. Some random guy who said he’s in new york training 2 b a supervisor && they just wanted to “confirm my information”.I told him I am not a scientologist & haven’t been for years but that I had tried many times to no avail to be removed from the mailing lists….so..he starts going over my name, address, etc….then he asks for my occupation, email address, ethnicity, etc. I told him that I don’t see why they should be asking for this kind of info. If in face they will be removing me from the list… Not that I would ever believe that I’d be lucky enough to be removed from the mailing list anyway….he seemed perturbed that I didn’t want 2 give out that info. It was very odd to say the least. He said “I don’t see why you wouldn’t want to tell me this info, its just for our records”….I did NOT end up telling him some of the stuff he asked as its totally irrelevant not to mention “nunya” aka nunya business….so then he asks what bridge I last did. (eye roll,here we go)….he asks me if I saw the event from 2 yrs. Ago where they re-released the basics. I said no. He says he is going to send me the dvd!!! Wait, did you not tell me ur calling to help get rid of duplicate ppl & take me off the mailing address!!?? LOL……..he then tells me to hold on, someone else is going to get on the line to go over “the last part” of the call….this other guy gets on & tells me they are gonna send me the dvd on the basics. I told dude 2 no thx…take me off ur mailing lists and don’t send me anything. He said ok but Iv heard that before……then here’s the weird part. He asks me if I have heard or read anything “bad” about Scientology. I was trippin’ bigtime at this point. I said well that is a pretty broad question. I told him that I am definitely aware of mny of the things that have occurred as of late. He proceeded to tell me that they aren’t tru. I said that I know of many top level execs. & former staff who have all said similar things. This part is a trip….he told me that he is aware of the same thing & wanted to make sure I knew that many of those former top level execs. Had also committed serious criminal acts. I said “ok, really. Well ok then”…..we ended off by him basically telling me not to believe what I hear. I just find it so odd & spooky to say the least. Such desperation! Its almost like they’ll say anything!!! The call was a guise. It wasn’t about setting records straight. They are desperate in so many ways…….I still can’t even believe this just happened……

    • arc,
      I got the same call a month ago. When put on with the second person and asked whether I’d seen the DVD and what I thought of it I responded that I’d written a KR on it. She hung up.

      • Martin Gibson

        LOL, oh Jim you made me laugh.
        I bet that wasn’t an expected response for your caller.

      • haha @ Jim. Good stuff…..it’s almost like they’re programmed like robots to say certain things. The second dude was saying he knows all about the articles and all kinds of shit that’s been going on but I know that they’re not allowed to read or hear anything negatively reflecting the co$…they just lie and say whatever they think you want to hear or whatever will get their stats up. I get like a call a month of this nature. Next I will ask to be removed from their call list too! Maybe when they start to lose tons of money on mailers they’ll finally stop sending it. My father hasn’t been in scn. for over 30 years still gets mail. He also gets calls at least once a week.

  18. —> “A management which will pervert an affinity or sever one may gain a momentary power but the laws here are the same as those relating to communication and an affinity tampered with will lower the tone of a group.” – LRH

    That is the realm of current hijacked so-called Scientology organizations! Coerced, unfair and unwarranted disconnection policy is attempted perversion of Affinity. With these perversions they gained *momentary power*

    —>”A management which will pervert or suppress a reality, no matter how “reasonable” the act seems, is acting in the direction of the destruction of a group.” – LRH

    The ™version of (so called) Scientology coming down from the Orgs is perverted Reality –count the ways.

    As Thought Provoking says –> LRH has made it clear that the group has the right to defend itself from destructive management.

    The only thing that seems daunting to me is that the Organized ™ Miscavology has unethically amassed billion$ and Money is what talks in a Corporate Money-motivated world. With whom and what is the perverted agenda in collusion?

    I know (I’m sorry to say but it’s what I see!) the Freeing of Theta and ARC is not the real objective, goal nor modus operandi of the current “Church” Management. It’s evident, look at watered-down wins and low wattage org “products”.

    This is spot on what’s happening. ARC is sacred and those here have their Code of Honor in enough to see and act on it. But I feel a little lonely and disconnected out here wishing for an environment of a REAL org, a really theta place that is safe.

    Qouted for emphasis (QFE):

    “For example when a true line is cut, it charges a little power into the cutter and he has authority for a moment thereby. But it is only the authority of the cut line. If the line is thus made to perish, the cutter loses his authority. If there is much truth in that line, it does not give authority to the cutter, it explodes him.”

    I have read this reference tens and tens of times. It has never had so much impact as it does at this time, owing to the fact that it so clearly contextualized.

    Beautiful reference.

    Thanks so much for posting this. I lost my Management Series and OEC Vols (and Tech Vols, too) — long story, that — so thanks very much.

    The most vital lines of a group are not operational lines, although this may appear so to management. They are the theta lines between any theta and the group and the goal maker and the group. Management that tampers with these lines in any way will destroy itself. These actually have tension and explosion in them. It is as inevitable as nightfall that these lines will explode, when tampered with, at the exact point of the tampering. This is a natural law of communication lines.
    A line is as dangerous to tamper with as it has truth in its channel. It is safe and even preserving of a line to cut it when it contains entheta.

If the line is thus made to perish, the cutter loses his authority. If there is much truth in that line, it does not give authority to the cutter, it explodes him

    When I first became aware of this group and managed to calm down from the original confusion I was suddenly thrown in. I thought about what HAT could and should I wear,
    I realized that Marty is right, it is not our mission to remove David Miscavige, it is not our mission to reform management, it is not our mission to try and court every Scientologist away from the Church. It is our mission to use Scientology freely as LRH intended and to build an effective infrastructure where people who find the truth and loose many stable data, have another stable datum at the ready.- Real Scientology practiced as LRH intended it.

    The reason we are not fighting or attacking the Church, merely exercising our right to communicate our observations and as is and heal some of the harm. Of the Above quote.
    The only real power Miscavige has, is the power derived from LRH his tech and policy and the theta inherent to those. With his obsessive alteration of these, he is diluting them so much, that their strength and influence wanes with each passing day. He will, no doubt, blame this on management, staff, the Orgs and most of us the independent field.
    But the truth he can not confront is that he and only he is the author of such decline. He will explode himself by the simple physics of the thousands of Mega Watts he continues to Short. And when at last all the theta of the honest and caring staff and public is not sufficient to ground him, sustain him, you will see a charred, destroyed Stalin, I mean Miscavige. That day will come as surely as the sun rises, with or without us. It is his own making, and pity him, he can’t even understand this truth. We are merely holding the ground firm so those blown out by the explosion will have a safe place to land and heal.
    That is how I see it.

    Thank you Marty, always a delight

    • Wow CC, this is so well expressed! Thank you, that is how I see it too! And our individual power, I believe, lies in the ability to apply these natural laws regarding communication lines and ARC.

  21. Hi all!
    So one night after being called to supposedly “update my info” in order to help me be removd from the mailimg list I came home to a newspaper called “The Auditor”. On pg. 5 there’s a huge ad for “The Next Giant Milestone Adance”. Dec. 27th @ the Shrine Auditorium…..I wonder what’s being re-released now……$$$$$ too bad….

  22. also in the new edition of “The Auditor”

    “You are very fortunate people. You are very, very lucky. Come all the way down the track, lived all of those years, did all these stupid things, and you wind up here with a chance out”.
    -L. Ron Hubbard.

    also

    “if it isn’t in the Auditor, it didn’t happen”.

    Good stuff!! 🙂

  23. High Five to you CC. When I read your post last night your take on this mess really indicated. After some sleep and more confronting and a few re-reads of your post, I am very much on board.

    100% agreement with you.

    Thanks for being in this universe and taking responsibility.

  24. Thoughtful, Scientology-cult is down.

  25. If we start with this from LRH:
    A management which will pervert or suppress a reality, no matter how “reasonable” the act seems, is acting in the direction of the destruction of a group.

    And, we start looking at the deification of LRH over time, we see many “reasonable” alterations of fact that result in a public image that no longer represents the truth of the man himself or how the tech was assembled/compiled/refined etc.

    When the individuals in a group are led to have ARC with a carefully assembled picture of a leader, rather than the leader as he is, this is folly in the extreme as increasing amounts of energy and force are required to keep people from looking behind the curtain.

    Group attention can be drawn away from the incredible workability of the technology and diverted to the alterations of truth that are being covered up.

    There are wider implications of this suppressing of reality as it spread to cover the actions of all church management, more than can be encompassed in a post let alone a comment.

    It is sufficient to suggest that this is one of the factors underlying the inability of highly trained Data Series Evaluators to find the WHY for the current church debacle.

    For those of you with the Management Series at hand, I’d like to suggest that David Miscavige is a WHO, not the WHY.

    I will be discussing this further on my blog as it is crucial that we use our current visibility to investigate outpoints we were never allowed to discuss in the CofS.

    • Old Auditor,
      I am trained in the Data Series, thoroughly. DM is a Who, not a Why. However, within the rational effects of this Who, lies the Why.

      With reference to your allusion regarding the deification aspect of LRH, the Data Series applies to this as well. In other words, any ‘outpoints’ one would find with LRH as a ‘Who’, would have to rationally affect the subject or practice of Scn. If LRH drank rum one night and hit on some blonde, and the next day withheld this from someone and further had the withhold missed and then wrote an HCOB that said LRH can never have a MWH, then I can see that as an outpoint. If he merely dramatized the MWH, without further affecting the materials, then it’s an ‘error’, or even an ‘outpoint’ on his part as a being.

      Issac Newton’s peccadilloes have nothing to do with apples falling either.

      There is a very important distinction between a mere error and a real irrational outpoint.

      In any case, DM as a Who, is part of an eval that isolates a Why first, that DM as a Who is effecting.

      • Personally I think any discussion of the Ol’man is irrelevant except maybe in a historical context in relation to the organization itself.

        Those of us who knew Ron, know that David Miscavige and his post of “COB” would have been a footnote in history if he was doing what he is now doing with the organization overtly.

        We know he wouldn’t have tolerated the injustices and abuses of the tech that were covertly occurring, under the rubric of “Mission All Clear” if he was receiving a true picture of what was occurring within the organization. Instead of false reports and assurances that every thing was being taken care of by new management.

        Note that he waited till Ron was fully off the lines before he assumed control of the organization in 1987 and even then moved gradually towards his objective of seizing control of the whole Scientology network.

        He knew that aside from Ron, Mary Sue was a key obstacle and so he forced her resignation as Controller and eliminated the GO and the organization’s CI and Counter-Espionage capabilities. In other words while claiming to have achieved internal org security by throwing out those who he claimed to be plants. He left the organization open to further infiltration by placing these activities under his direct control.

        As far as I’m concerned no one has noted the method to his madness and how he methodically achieved what various US Government Agencies have been trying to achieve for over 30 years at that point which has been to discredit the subject and effectively nullify its influence while co-opting the organization.

        As far as I’m concerned you have to look just prior to Miscavige to find the actual why and what the situation was before he seized total control.

        Yes of course it is obvious that by his continued death grip of the organization itself he is also creating other situations which each have their own whys, but at this point it’s almost like shooting fish in a barrel to uncover these.

        In fact why and who have almost become synonymous. However, I suggest confronting the prior confusion before the post of “COB” became a fixed idea.

      • RJ,
        Good point on the ‘prior confusion’. A quick look would say the invalidation of the Loyal Officers FO, in other words, LRH’s intention and planning.

  26. OldAuditor, I ask you, Why?

    So Ron could be curmudgeonly and vain and even sometimes mean but how does any of that diminish what he bequeathed? If he poached ideas from others, so be it. I am only concerned with what he left us. I’ve never looked at him as a deity; just a being with some seriously OT intention.

    CC, Great post. I’ve never believed that attacking the CoS would do any good. I’ve just decided to remove the authority I’d once given management to be responsible for Scientology on my behalf. I’m now I/C.

    DM’s been RPF’ed by me. I was going to have him running laps around a pole in the hot desert sun but I’ve been extricating myself from abysses where emotions like punishment and revenge rule. Moving on up a little higher …

    • Huckleberry and others,

      You might want to read my post again. There is no attack on LRH, only the indication that deification has occurred and what that means in terms of exposing the technology to attack.

      We are responsible for scientology from this time forward, so we had best understand that we no longer live in a world where there is a top down control of what we can observe and say about scientology, the church, Ron, or the results obtained from applying scientology.

      You and I now have full responsibility for determining what is true for us about all of these areas.

      I have just written a post about this called Finding your way as an Independent Scientologist. I invite you to read it and comment:
      http://possiblyhelpfuladvice.com/?p=149

  27. Concerned Citizen

    Dear Old Auditor,

    I’m pretty sure those of us who do have data series training are and have been well aware of the fact that DM is a who, not a why.

    However, the why is in fact his careful alteration of LRH’s legacy, both in it’s application and now it’s publication.

    I’m not sure who is deifying LRH. He left very clear admonishments not to do so and as far as I know, being a currently active member within the church, he is not deified, not even close.

    DM, however, is another matter, he is now, infallible in the eyes of church staff ( required view point) and many public. His actions, his alterations and general suppression are the subject of many discussions here in. This is where the deification is in fact occurring.

    He has virtually become senior to LRH policy and his new era of management directives, some containing LRH but mostly not, have become the substitute for OEC/FEBC management.

    LRH and his image is alive, only to the degree he needs it to derive it’s theta power by associating himself to him as the most trusted of his aides and the custodian of his legacy.

    He credits himself with salvaging Scientology a few times over. has made no effort to defend LRHs image to amount to anything (and while LRH was a man and made mistakes, there are some pretty far fetched stories to soil his name that he did not deserve)

    So I believe this is very clear.

    • CC,
      Excellent rendition of fact. Much thanks.

      • I suggest some HDSEC grad (of which the compilation of the checksheet was done by Mary Sue, which is probably why it is no longer used in Missed Cavige’s Air Strip One ) who has done evals do full out point, plus point (if there are any) count and uncover the situation.

        They couldn’t do any worse than that hokey and fraudulent “eval” the Clown on Board did to herald in the Golden Age of Crap.

        What a joke!

  28. Albert Schweitzer:
    Civilization can only revive when there shall come into being in a number of individuals a new tone of mind, independent of the prevalent one among the crowds, and in opposition to it — a tone of mind which will gradually win influence over the collective one, and in the end determine its character. Only an ethical movement can rescue us from barbarism, and the ethical comes into existence only in individuals.

  29. I love that essay and another, I believe it was called “An Essay on Management”, in HCOB vol 1 circa 1950 or 51, I think – it was a black on white, it made me cry, because that is how I think. What KINDNESS AND UNDERSTANDING Ron had for people and acknowledging them.
