After the war, Hubbard’s marriage dissolved, and he moved to Pasadena, where he became the housemate of Jack Parsons, a rocket scientist who belonged to an occult society called the Ordo Templi Orientis. An atmosphere of hedonism pervaded the house; Parsons hosted gatherings involving “sex magick” rituals. ["Sex magick": orgies which form the outermost layers of Satanism, designed to facilitate wild abandonment to one's lowest, animal impulses, leading to an initial, "Nietzschean superman" form of possession. This phrase also supports my contention that Satanism poses as black magic.][...]Much of the alleged abuse took place at the Gold Base, a Scientology outpost in the desert near Hemet, a town eighty miles southeast of Los Angeles. [Image from Google Earth with Becker-Hagens Grid overlay - performing SRA on the Grid is more effective for its intended effect, i.e. demonic possession.] Miscavige has an office there, and the site features, among other things, movie studios and production facilities for the church’s many publications. For decades, the base’s location was unknown even to many church insiders. Haggis visited the Gold Base only once, in the early eighties, when he was about to direct his Scientology commercial. The landscape, he said, suggested a spa, “beautiful and restful,” but he found the atmosphere sterile and scary. Surrounded by a security fence, the base houses about eight hundred Sea Org [>65>11, the number of black magic] members, in quarters that the church likens to those “in a convent or seminary, albeit much more comfortable.
