Reading the Scientology Basics?

After the release of the Scientology Basics a few weeks ago, I've all of the sudden found myself with my nose in a book once again.  I've been a Scientologist for, well, I guess around 20 years -- but the core of the religion and the essence of what it is, is contained in these books.  And these are books that I have, in some cases, never read before at all.  It's a bit like being Islamic and having only read parts of the Q'uran.

These books were all recently released anew by Mr. David Miscavige at an event where he briefed all Scientologists about the massive project that had resulted in a complete verification and restoration of these Basic Scientology materials so that they were 100% true to what L. Ron Hubbard had originally written, and so that they are in that regard 100% easy for any new person or old hand to pick up and get all of the basics of Scientology and Dianetics.

So, I've started from the beginning (according to the Scientology Materials Guide Chart), and am now in the middle of reading Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.   I'll write more when I'm through it, but for sure -- I'm now more positive than ever that the easiest, best way of understanding what Scientology and Dianetics are is to just grab one of these books and read it.

Video Sharing Sites

Sorry about the prior post - I was testing out some various video sharing sites and looking at how their controls worked, their automatic one-click publishing features, etc, and one of the sites I went to happened  to have old Gramma wielding an MP40.  I yielded to the same pressure that many bloggers do, and posted it.  Just shows you the pervasive power of a preposterous video. 

Definitely am intrigued though with the potential of Internet video.  I've been used to being a back-end sysadmin for some time, and just now am looking at the relative persuasive value of being able to circulate little videos that can be continuously re-watched.  Gets me thinking.
