Strange Rooms And Devices Inside Scientology’s Super Power Building

Via the Village Voice, unbelievable renderings of the chambers to be used for testing, training, and sensory enhancement of Scientology adherents:

The Voice has obtained hundreds of new renderings of Scientology’s Super Power Building in Clearwater, Florida. L. Ron Hubbard devised the “Super Power Rundown” in 1978. He envisioned it as a series of counseling routines with the use of elaborate and futuristic platforms and machines. In 1998, Hubbard’s successor broke ground on a massive new building project, “Flag Mecca,” known commonly as the Super Power Building, where the new rundown would be housed. Thirteen years and $145 million in fundraising later, the building is thought to be largely completed, but it is still not open for business.

  1. I love how a relatively minor science fiction writer can create a religion, and bullshit people into playing along with the con.

    Right before your eyes, ladies and gentlemen. Look—there’s nothing up my sleeve, yet I shall make your incredulity disappear completely! You are getting sleepy…your eyes are getting heavy, and your wallet is getting lighter…an overwhelming naivete is sweeping over you…soon you will be completely stupid, and enjoy being in this state…

      There is a long standing rumor that Scientology actually came about of a bar bet between Hubbard and Robert Heinlein. 

      • My theory is that Scientology emerged, almost by accident, as one half of a “divine syzygy” borne of the BABALON working with Jack Parsons.  The other half, the KAOS current, seems to be settling into a more or less coherent form, behind a Guy Fawkes mask.
