THE SUBJECT OF THIS REPORT
At a large event in 2007 called The Golden Age of Knowledge for Eternity: The Basics, David Miscavige discredited original Scientology publications as being full of errors and released a new set of supposedly “corrected” editions called “The Basics.”
Original publications were collected and a detailed comparison between the originals and “The Basics” was performed. Statements by David Miscavige during the event were also carefully analyzed to verify their validity.
The analysis revealed that the 2007 event is full of LIES and DISINFORMATION and that the many changes introduced into the new editions are not corrections but random and malicious alterations of L. Ron Hubbard’s original content.
What this means is that David Miscavige and the entire institution of the Church of Scientology under his leadership has engaged upon a campaign of MASS DECEPTION of Scientologists and the public. David Miscavige and Church of Scientology organizations may also be liable under law for engaging in false advertising and consumer fraud with respect to selling false materials under the name of L. Ron Hubbard. In addition to having the name “L. Ron Hubbard” in large letters on the cover and title page of each book, every book in the set also includes a NOTE TO THE READER with the following statements:
This report does NOT address the lectures that were released with the books, except for debunking David Miscavige’s claim that they “have never been available.”
APPLIED ANALYTICAL FRAMEWORK
A more complete and technical explanation for this analytical framework can be found on page: BASIC FRAMEWORK.
REALITY: An actual existence or occurrence (whether in the present, in the past, or potentially in the future).
PERCEPTION: A view (vision, conception) of given reality formed by the mind. Perception depends on the development and application of intelligence in relation to gathering and processing of information.
“The ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills.” [Oxford Dictionary]
“The ability to acquire, understand, and use knowledge.” [The American Heritage Dict.]
“Capacity of mind, especially to understand principles, truths, facts or meanings, acquire knowledge, and apply it to practice; the ability to comprehend and learn.” [Wiktionary]
BASIS OF PERCEPTION: Contact with the actual reality of something vs. contact with direct or indirect representations.
REPRESENTATION: Information about the reality of something that is not a direct view of the reality in question. Representative information can be separated into direct representations (such as photographs, videos or other forms of recordings of the reality in question) and indirect representations (such as statements, descriptions, models or animations).
POINT OF DIFFERENTIATION: The actual reality of something vs. someone’s representations about that reality which may be false or misleading.
POINT OF CONCERN: The degree of alignment or disconnect between someone’s formed perception and the actual reality that is the object (or target) of perception.
Key Word Definitions:
Conformity with fact or reality. [Webster’s College Dictionary]
The truth about something is all the facts about it, rather than things that are imagined or invented. [Collins Dictionary]
True facts, genuine depiction or statements of reality. [Wiktionary]
true: Consistent with fact or reality; not false or erroneous. [American Heritage Dictionary]
true: Conforming to the actual state of reality or fact; factually correct. [Wiktionary]
An intentionally false statement. [Oxford Dictionary]
A false statement deliberately presented as being true; a falsehood. [American Heritage Dictionary]
To make an untrue statement with intent to deceive. [Merriam-Webster Dictionary]
To present false information with the intention of deceiving. [American Heritage Dictionary]
To say or write something that is not true in order to deceive someone: [Cambridge Dictionary]
The act of causing someone to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid. [Merriam-Webster Dictionary]
The act of deliberately making someone believe something that is not true. [Longman]
An instance of actions and/or schemes fabricated to mislead someone into believing a lie or inaccuracy. [Wiktionary]
deceive: to persuade someone that something false is the truth, or to keep the truth hidden from someone for your own advantage. [Cambridge Dictionary]
|Notice that DE-CEPTION and PER-CEPTION share a common root word CEPT meaning “to grasp.” PER-CEPTION means to fully grasp something; DE-CEPTION means to fall away from grasping something, to move in an opposite direction from per-ception, to become disconnected from the view of some given reality.
Intentionally false information disseminated to deliberately confuse or mislead. [Wiktionary]
Disinformation is intentionally false or inaccurate information that is spread deliberately. It is an act of deception and false statements to convince someone of untruth. Disinformation should not be confused with misinformation, information that is unintentionally false.
Unlike traditional propaganda techniques designed to engage emotional support, disinformation is designed to manipulate the audience at the rational level by either discrediting conflicting information or supporting false conclusions. A common disinformation tactic is to mix some truth and observation with false conclusions and lies, or to reveal part of the truth while presenting it as the whole (a limited hangout).
The term AUDIT in the name of this report comes from the field of Accounting:
[Wikipedia] Auditors perceive and recognize the propositions before them for examination, obtain evidence, evaluate the same and formulate an opinion on the basis of their judgement which is communicated through their auditing report.
[Investopedia] The term audit usually refers to a financial statement audit. A financial audit is an objective examination and evaluation of the financial statements of an organization to make sure that the financial records are a fair and accurate representation of the transactions they claim to represent. …
An unqualified, or clean, audit opinion means that the auditor has not identified any material misstatement as a result of his or her review of the financial statements.
[Businessdictionary.com] Systematic examination and verification of a firm’s books of account, transaction records, other relevant documents, and physical inspection of inventory by qualified accountants (called auditors).
In performing an audit, an accounting auditor examines “source documentation” as well as physical reality (such as looking at inventory on hand) related to business assets and activities to verify that the resulting accounting entries and financial statements of a given institution accurately REFLECT THE REALITY to which they apply.
A source document is an original record which contains the detail that supports or substantiates a transaction that will be (or has been) entered in an accounting system. In the past, source documents were printed on paper. Today, the source documents may be an electronic record. [AccountingCoach.com]
Some common examples of source documents include sales receipts, checks, purchase orders, invoices, bank statements, and payroll reports. These are all original documents that were created from a transaction… Source documents are used to record transactions because they are original and show an objective report of the economic activities of each transaction. [myaccountingcourse.com]
In this report, “source documents” are the actual books and other publications produced by L. Ron Hubbard during his life and legally copyrighted under his name. These source documents – the actual books – are inspected to make an evaluation as to the truthfulness or falsehood of representative statements by David Miscavige about the books. A “source document” is similar in concept to the term “evidence.”
The general concept of accounting audit was applied in this case to quite literary audit Scientology books and representative statements by David Miscavige during the 2007 event.
Of course, all of this “theoretical complexity” can be reduced to simpler, common concepts of fact checking or performing a reality check.
