Pre-Scientology

Thok was an artist and worked in films. In the Danish Film Himlen er Blå (1956 The Sky is Blue) he played an artist with a lot of the Danish top actors. He did early children's TV (Danish) cartoons. In the beginning of the 60s Thok worked with Professor Kapok og Mekaniker Nik which was a puppet show, where the two figures fly around in a balloon. It was a weekly series which ran for a few years and Thok wrote the story.

Scientology

When in England for his work, someone at the place he was staying mentioned Scientology. He had psychological problems. An early book was A History of Man and this was just the ticket, for he was mentally seeing things which made him wonder if he was mad, and HoM explained them.

Outside organisational Scientology

He was well known in the Splinter movement (Free Zone) in Denmark. He was interested in Origami http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Origami and was invited a number of times to the Japanese Origami association at their expense. When he did not die at the age of 80 as he expected, he did not know what to do, and so set up a commemorative Internet site (for himself) filled with his cartoon figures, which unfortunately was not maintained after his death.

Two examples of his many small drawings:
