3. The ImplantIn HCOB 11 April 1982, Sec Checking Implants, LRH describes the different forms of implants. Of one type he states:
"BRAINWASHING: This is the wrong-use term to describe implanting by deprivation and physical and mental duress. It is said to be based on the Pavlov dog experiments (but it was not developed by Pavlov). The theory is that when a victim is subjected to enough punishment, he will forget his former allegiances and can be 're-educated' politically."
In the same reference LRH also talks of another effective method called imposing silence, the “you mustn’t tell” implant and remarks on how damaging it is.
And in Scientology 8-80, when talking of implants, LRH states: "The object was slavery, a compulsion to be good and obedient…"
Now there is no doubt that behavior modification comprised the most major use of implanting by Miscavige but it was not his only use of implants.
How about sudden physical attacks on people, in which he used the element of surprise and followed up with physical blows while screaming commands?
Why do most of the experiences we read on the Internet talk of Miscavige pouncing suddenly, without warning, leaping on someone from across the conference table or flying at them, fists flailing, or hitting them, open palmed across the ear? Why do most observers or recipients of the abuse report the fact that they did not see it coming? The answer: He used the element of surprise to amplify the shock factor and reinforce the intensity of the incident upon his victim.
Why is one of his favorite phrases: “You know what you did wrong. You know what you did.” Or some similar statement said over and over again to the victim who usually has no idea what he’s talking about? Well, my friends, if you want to stick someone in an incident, throw in a big fat mystery, that will stick them in it but good.
And you can’t explain it all away by saying: “Miscavige just got mad.” These were timed and contrived incidents, sometimes elaborately set up, not momentary, spontaneous anger. Miscavige intentionally went at people when they were unawares. And it wasn’t about putting anyone in the hospital, it was all about the control, all about the implant.
And it wasn’t just physical attacks. He used the factors of surprise and mystery to heavy effect when put together with verbal/emotional attacks, intentionally restimulating (means “creating profound mental, spiritual and emotional agitation to”) his victim and using that restim in place of a physical beating. Below is a recent report from a Sea Org executive about an incident that took place in the mid 80s.
"I was alone in my office. It was so quiet I could hear the muffled sounds of traffic and people going about their business beyond the walls and windows as I worked on my reports, alternatively reading and then typing.
"I was deep in thought when the telephone to the outside line rang. I put the receiver to my ear but immediately had to move it away as a screaming, growling, snarling, voice on the other end of the line immediately launched into a string of obscenities so full of hate and loathing for me that even to this day I cannot bring myself to tell anyone the words that were actually used. But what was clear that I can relay, the words were directed at me with total venom and the caller left me in no doubt that he thought me total SP.
"The frothing, fanatical, obscene tirade continued non-stop for something like twenty minutes and included every possible cuss word and profanity, yet suddenly it was over as quickly as it had begun. Without any signal the line clicked dead and I was once again alone in the stillness of my office.
"The caller did not say what prompted the call, what I had done to bring it on or what caused it. But the caller repeatedly asserted that I knew the cause. I did not, and I have spent the last twenty plus years trying to figure it out. Sometimes I wished I could just say “it didn’t happen” or “it was just a bad dream.” But then I remember the unmistakable voice of David Miscavige at the other end of the line, an incredibly senior executive within Scientology and then I tell myself that, sadly, it did happen.
"Apart from writing this report I have only managed to bring myself to tell one person of it, my wife, and that quite some years after the fact and even then I included no details. I felt on a withhold. How was I supposed to explain to anyone that David Miscavige, a leader in Scientology had launched into a twenty minute insane rant against me? They might think me a liar or worse. Besides, maybe it was me, maybe there was something wrong with me that had brought this attack about. And even though I had done nothing wrong I felt I had to withhold it at least until I could figure out why it had occurred – but I never could so I held onto it and said nothing as if, in some weird way, I had committed an offense. I carried it like a burden.
"I thought it was only I who had experienced this type of incident with David Miscavige, until I read reports of similar incidents on the Internet which were in many cases far worse than the one I’d experienced. Only then did I gain some relief in the knowledge that whatever it was that was wrong with David Miscavige, it was not my doing."
Even by telephone Miscavige was able to deliver a devastating effect.
And again this report shows that he has been using these techniques from the start and to punch home my point I refer you to the incident similar to the one above that took place in the van right after Miscavige smashed the public telephone with a tire iron as reported by Gang of 5. That was thirty years ago.
I believe I am justified in thinking that a far greater number of both physical and emotional attacks (attempts to implant) have taken place at the hands of Miscavige than generally thought. Not simply because he has been doing it for thirty years, but because just as with the ex Sea Org executive above, I don’t think everyone has come forward and I believe many incidents took place with few or no witnesses.
And it wasn’t just with Sea Org members and it wasn’t just on men. I personally know of an attack Miscavige made on a female executive of a Class V org, pinning her against a wall while he yelled at her. And I witnessed another incident where Miscavige was rude, aggressive and threatening to a pregnant women which included the mystery sandwich of the unanswerable question just to stick her in the incident. Further, I know of another incident where Miscavige poked a woman so hard with his bony finger in the Int Landlord Office of the Int Base that she fell down. He had to return later and do a contact assist to reduce the pain and injury he caused by physically assaulting this WOMAN.
So the mathematician in me tells me that if I take the number of incidents I know of, and extrapolated that across thirty years, and thousands of Sea Org members, thousands of staff in other orgs and hundreds upon hundreds of visits, tours and inspections carried out by Miscavige, it all adds up to thousands of these incidents. In other words not just ten or a dozen or fifty spectacularly vicious attacks at Int but a widespread effect upon the sanity of our staff and all the collateral damage that that implies.
