The administrative – as opposed to the legal – establishment of the First Independent Church of Scientology (FICS) is underway.
Naturally, that involves having the correct technology.
“The only thing you can be upbraided for by students or pcs is ‘no results.’ Trouble spots occur only where there are ‘no results.’ Attacks from governments or monopolies occur only where there are ‘no results’ or ‘bad results.’
“Therefore the road before Scientology is clear and its ultimate success is assured if the technology is applied.”
The first step in applying the correct technology is: Having the Correct Technology.
Tech is Out in the Church of Scientology
There is plenty of upbraiding going on against the church for its ‘no results’ or ‘bad results.’ And trouble spots galore exist, as any casual surf through the waves of cyber space reveals.
The first clue is generalization or wrong targeting, e.g., Scientology is the problem. Intelligent, fair-minded (i.e., not prejudiced) people can see the difference between a philosophy and those who act in the name of the philosophy, and they don’t make judgments based solely on data from bitter former… anything (church members, employees, spouses, etc.).
To understand many specific changes in the technology inside the church, visit Friends of LRH.
Getting the Technology In
A prominent Class VIII auditor once told us that he/she would rejoin the Sea Org if given the opportunity to put the tech in. We found that admirable, but not entirely unexpected. After all, in the Class VIII course, LRH gave students the task of ensuring the technology remains standard.
We hope that person and many other Class VIIIs will step up and help get the tech in FICS, which is tantamount to getting the tech in the church, because one day, perhaps a distant day, those few souls left within the ever-crumbling church will want the correct technology.
And FICS will give it to them – in furtherance of Keeping Scientology Working Steps six through ten: (6) Seeing that the technology is correctly applied; (7) Hammering out of existence incorrect technology; (8) Knocking out incorrect applications; (9) Closing the door on any possibility of incorrect technology; and (10) Closing the door on incorrect application.
Technical Standards Committee
The plan to have the correct technology begins with the establishment of a Technical Standards Committee comprised of Class VIII auditors who have proven results applying the technology. This process has begun, and several qualified people have already volunteered.
Lana Mitchell has generously donated her time and skills to help establish this project. Anyone desiring to contribute may contact her through firstname.lastname@example.org. Please let us know if you are qualified and willing to join the committee, or can recommend someone who is.
The committee, among other things, will nominate to the FICS board of directors a candidate(s) to hold the position of Senior Case Supervisor. Please provide input, including your choice for the best qualified candidates. All information received will be forwarded to the Technical Standards Committee.
The ultimate product FICS is looking for is the correct technology: a classification and gradation chart that can be placed in every mission, church, or advanced organization; course packs and checksheets that FICS can package and make available to all its licensees.
Once the correct technology has been settled on we will isolate and deal with the trademark and copyright issues presented and then formulate a more precise legal strategy.
How You Can Help
We touched on some ways you can assist this effort, above. There are other ways, some that we might not even envision. So please weigh in.
Do you support this approach? If not, why not? If so, why?
We know that a number of people in the field have created their own charts, course packs and checksheets, and therefore, that a lot of ground work has already been done by competent tech terminals. We request your assistance and support and ask you to provide copies of your work product to the Technical Standards Committee for its review.
If you have something to say regarding the makeup of the Technical Standards Committee or who should or should not be the Senior Case Supervisor, now is the best time to say it.
As we mentioned in a previous article, FICS is your church. It will succeed to the degree that able people step up and contribute to it.
We all bear some responsibility for losing the correct technology. This is our chance to remedy the situation. Please lend a hand.
