My Testing!

Now this was an interesting day, I was walking down Totenham Cour Road looking for a camera tripod and access point. That road is filled with electronic and computer stores selling most of everything you would look for in London. As I walked out of the last Nikon/Canon store admiring some expensive lens, I walk out to see the Dianetics and Scientology center right next door. I instinctively took a picture of the sign and stand out front, then just looked through my lens to see somebody looking directly at me, but I snapped any way. She walked up to me and asked me if I’m interested in Dianectics, walking me inside to a wall filled with L Ron Hubbard books and DVDs. She asked where I was from, told her from Kuwait, she grabbed a book in Arabic and gave it to me as well as DVD, assuming I would be willing to pay for it. I told her I read a little bit about it a while ago but didn’t really read up, she was being very forceful to take the book or at least the DVD.

She asked where I was from, I told from Kuwait and she said then I must be Muslim, I told her that is the case. She asked if I had 30 minutes to spare, I said I’m a bit tight on time, she wanted me to watch to 5 minute videos and do some testing, I opted out of the videos but was curious about the testing. She took me to the lower floors to sit in an area where they do some testing, I was ask a lot of questions about what I do, and what I do on a daily basis, how I feel and some many things. Then the infamous E-Meter was brought out, it looks like some contraption out of the 1950s, radiation testing of some sorts. Then that machine was going off for a bit, then after all that the testing was done. The results is that I have a lot of pent up negative energy and I need it solved and that requires further treatment. I thanked them and walked out, it took all the will power I had not to laugh at certain points in the testing, I can understand how they can turn a few people into Scientologists,and some of these people are extremely strong willed with an answer for every statement, the cult feeling of it is there but they are much better organized. That was an interesting experience but I continued looking for my access point in the shops down the road.

    Beware Marzouq! they did the exact same thing to me when I went to San Fransisco 4 years ago .. and back then I didn’t have a clue about Scientology .. they approach you with the theme of energy and bull shit but afterward you realize they are trying to convert you into Scientology

    LOL, but don’t we all radiate negative energy :P it’s the way people are these days ;)

  4. I think measuring someone’s negative or positive energy is harmless. There are centers, even in K-Town, that can detect your chakras and tell you where’s the negative concentration in your body and whether your chakras and energy points are closed or opened.

    The philosophy behind what they believe in is a totally different matter though especially when the cult is established by a pulp fiction writer. What a joke.

  5. I love how they use the Harry Potter theme (font and style). Make it more appealing to kids?

    I did this test while I was in the UK 4 years ago! I took a short intensive course for three days..the test was about how to delete your negative thoughts or lets say things that you want to completely forget. at the day of the test they asked me to sit with someone else and apply what we have learnt on each other!!! I closed my eyes, started talking, and so on! until i reached to the end of my painful story, and the guy asked me to do the delete part “as if it’ll be totally deleted”! then i opened my eyes and did the same to him!
    later on I find out that it was a church! a modern church actually!
    and from that day until recently my phone never stopper ringing! “it was like forcing me to take other courses with them”! until I told them enough!!
