Questions about Thetans

Hi!

I was wondering if anyone knows what Thetans are supposed to look like, or what Xenu himself looked like! In David Fishman's story, he mentioned purple with golden discs for eyes...

Anyone have answers?

A thetan is just the "awareness of the awareness unit" or something like that. It has no form, no mass, no wavelength, etc.

A thetan is supposed to be you, the person, seperate from the physical universe, your point of awareness. You dont' HAVE a thetan, you ARE a thetan.

Man, that just blew my mind.



But in all seriousness, Body Thetan is actually used differently then just Thetan? BT's being the bad, confused thetans of the past and your current thetan needing to ditch their piggybaking butts to get "clear"? Or is it more Thetan is all encompassing for anything termed "spirit" and even if you are a thetan, it doesn't stop you from having other clustered, sleeping or drugged up thetans dragging you down.

I've read a ton of the material, heck I read OT3 in L.Ron's own handwriting, but a lot of that stuff really wasn't clear (pun fully intended) what he actually wanted to say. Lafayette may have been a genius at random jargon, but making things understandable straight from source definitely wasn't his forte.

Yeah, I was going to make a post about that.

Thetan = You. The spirit. The soul. The "true you". The individual.

No one ever says "my thetan", because you are the thetan. They believe that the mind is not attached to the brain, it's a series of pictures that the thetan (you) carry around. So that's why you're supposed to be able to recall past lives, because the thetan takes his mind, a collection of all the lives he has lived, with him when he dies.

Body Thetans = Dead souls from other people that are traumatized from the Xenu thingie and stuck to your body.

So you're right both ways. Body thetan is used very differently than just Thetan.

But it's also true, according to Elron, that you as a thetan have these traumatized body thetans dragging you down.

I also remember reading somewhere that Hubbard wrote if you get rid of your body thetans, your body would be translucent. Or maybe I just made that up.

Science of Survival actually explains the concept of theta and thetans pretty well. It's a book you read on the PTS/SP course.

It's been some years since I've read it, but from my understanding and from my interpretation, there is theta which is basically the creator of the physical universe. Theta has no form, no wavelength, no mass, no frequency... it's just static. Theta's basic purpose is to "conquer" the physical universe.

A thetan is basically a "unit" of theta. The way I always understood it, you, the thetan, a unit of theta, are part of a bigger whole. I don't know about other Scientologists, but I always figured that God or the Supreme Being referred to in the 8th Dynamic to be all theta in its infinite entirety.

Anyway, so there's theta, and there's entheta, which is theta which has been enturbulated by "colliding too hard with the physical universe and experiencing pain." And every thetan is packing around some entheta to a greater or lesser degree. The more "entheta" a thetan is, the more "aberrated" it is.

LRH wrote about something called the "contagion of aberration." Basically, if there's a little bit of theta surrounded by a bunch of entheta, that theta will turn to entheta. But if there's a little bit of entheta surrounded by a bunch of theta, then that entheta will turn to theta. The more entheta a thetan is, the lower on the Tone Scale it will be. The more free theta a thetan has, the higher it will be on the Tone Scale.
