Study Tape 6

Alterations in The Study Tapes
Tape 6: Study and Education

13 Feb 01

This is a comparison of two different versions of The Study Tapes, 1982 and
1987 versions, done by listening to an '87 tape, while reading from an '82
transcript, in order to find out what has been cut out of the '87 tapes by

At the beginning of the tape, there is a small deletion of a few words. The
deleted words are [enclosed in brackets] below:

"So education - education I would define as something that is for blood, and
I would say that many things pass under the heading of education which
aren't. [I'm not talking if -] this is a good English dictionary
definition, you see?"

There is one more deletion like the above near the end of side 1:

"So [here's this very interesting -] here's this very interesting technical
line. That's a technical line, man..."

These were the only deletions from the '82 version to the '87 version for
tape 6, which I found curious, considering the rather extensive changes on
some of the other tapes. For whatever reason, RTC has left this tape fairly

Now, while I was listening, I found some rather interesting things which I
would like to pass along. Towards the end of side 1, Ron is discussing the
survival of a body of knowledge, a subject, and says the following:

"But where you get a subject coming on down the line across the millenia,
and so forth, it is only because it's purpose is carried with it. It's
purpose has gone along with it, and it's purpose is understood.

Now, one could destroy that subject by destroying it's purpose - no longer
needed, you see - or by destroying the relay of it's technology in some
fashion or another, or in being too insistent or too forceful in in relaying
it's technology..."

So I looked at this in-terms of what RTC and the current Int Mgmt have been
doing with the subject, along with other forces on the outside of the

RTC (from the inside) has been systematically destroying the technology, and
being extremely forceful in it's squirreled application thereof, while other
forces (on the outside) have been systematically promoting a false purpose
for the technology.

In other words, insisting that the real purpose was X when it was originally
intended to be Y. Now people on the outside, seeing only the squirreled
texts and forceful application, of course, see X. So how could they believe
otherwise than the purpose really was X. So the REAL purpose is no longer
understood by the culture as a whole, and only a destructive purpose is seen
in it's place.

The only ones that would really understand that the original purpose was Y,
were those that had studied the original materials before they were altered,
and who had been around the subject before it was so severely altered and
degraded by RTC.

So, by a combination of these two factors, the relay of the technology has
been disrupted from the inside, and the original purpose is no longer
understood on the outside. In terms of a military maneuver, this would be
akin to a pincers movement whereby the enemy is attacked from opposite
flanks, caught between the pincers as it were, and squeezed until dead.

A little farther along in the tape, Ron is discussing the process of
educating someone in a particular subject, and the length of time it takes
someone to get up to a proficient or professional level in some area, and
how this can have a detrimental effect:

"...the longer it takes to approach the education, the more opportunity
there is for tacks on the runway. We could probably state that in a much
more easily expressed way, but that's but the way it is. If this character
is taking off, taking off, taking off, taking off, he's running on the
runway, he's trying to get up speed, everybody is saying: "Well, you mustn't
pull back on the stick yet. You must stay there on the runway, and keep
running on the runway, ready to take off, ready to take off, ready to take
off, ready to take off"; well, by the time he's done this about 45 years and
finds out he isn't off the ground, he doesn't take off.

The reason for that is... the number of opportunities to fail are directly
proportional to the length of the approach. That's a law."

Again, I looked at this particular statement in-terms of current members in
the church. I personally encountered this very phenomenon when I was trying
to go up the Bridge IN THE CHURCH (I no longer have this problem now that I
am out). The goal was continually out of my reach. It kept being moved
back, moved back, moved back. Each time I moved forward a step or
surmounted a barrier, another artificial barrier was errected in it's place.
And I was continually given the wrong indication that the WHY was me.

From talking to others, and reading many other personal stories on the web,
I see that many, many others have experienced exactly the same phenomenon as
I. Mine was not an isolated experience, but rather, apparently, the norm.
