Brief Autobiography

Born: 31st December 1929 (and thus survived about two hours of the roaring twenties), in Cowes, Isle of Wight, England.

Nationality: British (since 1969 resident in Denmark where dual nationality only became possible in 2014).

No spouse, no children. (three 2Ds, the first homosexual, the other two bisexual)

Sixty years active in (meta)Scientology.

Went to English private schools until 17 years old (changed school a bit because of war).

Trained evening courses as an optician.

Two years, 60 days national Service as a conscientious objector in the Friends Ambulance Unit International Service.

Three or four years in late teens, early twenties was a Christian, where I had aspirations to be a minister and began part time training as a Local (lay) Preacher in the Methodist Church.

After that I tried (again) to set up a private practice with two of the weekend course HPAAbbreviation for Hubbard Professional Auditor.

Moved to Swiss Cottage (still trying to build a practice) where I auditedThe application of Scientology processes and procedures to someone by a trained auditor.

Printing Officer, Pubs DK 1969

On January 1st 1968 I (and some twenty or thirty others) were suddenly moved to a completely new organisation Publications (again see my home page). This moved me to Edinburgh, Scotland and then Copenhagen, Denmark.

I had two 2½ year contacts, when the last one was up the organisation had changed a lot, and I was not willing to continue (either in Pubs or the Sea OrgAbbreviation for Sea Organization. (Modern Management Technology Defined (C) 1976)., which Pubs at that time had begun to copy). I got a job with a Danish insurance company on 1st March 1971, and did my little best to be a good Scientologist.

I left that job on 31st of October 1979 to do a ridiculous job for Pubs Org in England, which needed some one at least on OTIII to do. When I came back I did two levels of the Briefing Course full time (getting NOTSNew Era Dianetics for OT's. Done in two main sections after OT III. Audited NOTS (OT V) and Solo NOTS (OT VI & VII with OT VI being the course that trains the pre-OT how to solo audit NOTS) Note: OT IV is the OT Drug Rundown done after OT III. auditingThe application of Scientology processes and procedures to someone by a trained auditor. (Dianetics & Scientology Technical Dictionary (C) 1975) at the same time, being called for when my auditor1. one who listens and computes; a Scn practitioner. 2. one who has been trained in the technology of Scn. An auditor applies standard technology to preclears. 3. a person who through church training becomes skilled in the successful application of Dn and Scn to his family, friends and the public to achieve the ability gained as stated on the Gradation Chart for his class of training...more was ready for me), and then the Happiness Rundown Course and Internship (that really was marvelous). I had inherited some money when my mother died, but this ran out. I was working at a poorly paid night job (the phone man in a very tiny Taxi firm). In a most peculiar way (from my standard Scientology viewpoint) I got verbally declared Suppressive (at least I never saw a Suppressive Person2. a person who rewards only down statistics and never rewards an up statistic. He goofs up or vilifies any effort to help anybody and particularly knifes with violence anything calculated to make human beings more powerful or intelligent. A suppressive automatically and immediately will curve any betterment activity into something evil or bad...More Order). I have not got round to writing that up for my home page, but it and later events will be written up (if my body lasts that long).

Briefly in the years after I was thrown out I had various jobs (including in the computer area), had communication1. the consideration and action of impelling an impulse or particle from source point across a distance to receipt point with the intention of bringing into being at the receipt point a duplication and understanding of that which emanated from the source point. (HCOB 5 Apr 73)...more with many Danes who were out of the Church of Scientology, and amongst other things we came to issue a Danish magazine Uafhænge Synspunkter (Independent Viewpoints). I started fairly junior, but as other people dropped out I tended to take on their hats1. The term and idea of a hat comes from conductors or locomotive engineers, etc., each of whom wears a distinctive and different type of headgear. A hat therefore designates particular status and duties in an organization. (HCO PL 22 Sept 70) 2. The duties of a post. (HCO PL 13 Sept 70) :-) . I had a job with the company that introduced the first Desktop Publishing programme to Denmark, and when the person who was able to get us photo typesetting done (from simple text files) left the area, I asked my boss if I could use their equipment for an Independent Scientology magazine and he said yes – so I got that "job" too – on Sundays when there was no one around to help me :-)

There was a demand for an English speaking Independent Scientology Magazine (all of those that existed, except Free Spirit, had apparently died), so I started International Viewpoints (commonly called IVy, see http://articles.ivymag.org/). As time went on more and more technologies came to help, the most significant being Internet) and that helped me get lots of helpers around the world (many of whom, for various reasons, don't want their names published). In connection with that I set up an Internet list for IVy subscribers, and I also set up a few other internet lists.

IVy is now closed, and I am really working on ending this life cycles as tidily as possible (there seem to be all too many :-) ).

I have always had an interest in music, and that is taking increasing attention, with a marvelous concert hall within an hours train ride, and very good public radio channel (24 hours a day with mostly classical music and talk on and about music and musicians). Since coming to Denmark I have taken an interest in cycling (it is a marvelous country to cycle in. Early a (now dead) Scientologist who stayed in the "Church" introduced me to running (later sometimes called "jogging") which I still do a bit in a very slow and amateurish manner. I have friends, both in Denmark and abroad who I keep somewhat in touch with.

A couple of years ago, three interviews were made of me, which are on YouTube. They are in Danish, and thus rather irritating for those who do not understand Danish, and they are (from my side) a bit amateurish. Two years later, I have managed to get English interviews (see below) which I am happy about.

In some ways I feel I am unique, having been an observer of Scientology and its changes over many years, having had experience in Tech, Admin and Pubs Org, all my friends and acquaintances have had positive experiences with (Meta)Scientology, – and being rather odd anyway :-).
