Oh No! Scientology is putting subauditory messages in the records of its musician members! Play Van Morrison's records backwards and you'll see what we mean! Actually, they're probably in there forwards, since most of Dianetics and Scientology is tripe enough to melt right into the background noise. The CD probably has some form of background static which is in fact LRH explaining at length how he isolated a thetan in Phoenix, AZ, in July 1952.

P.S. I've finished reading "Scientology", and will now continue to try to understand "Dianetics: A Modern Science of Mental Health". I don't have the perfect recall that is suppsed to be one of the CLEAR's superhuman powers, or I'd be able to tell you which page of Dianetics or Scientology has the reference for the "thetan isolation" jab above...
