1. Lawrence Wright tells Terry Gross about Scientology’s Operating Thetan Level No. 3:


When you get to Operating Thetan Level No. 3, there’s a big discovery that you have in Scientology. It was the most closely held secret in the church until it was put out and dumped into a courtroom in the ’80s and all the copyrighted secrets of the church became public knowledge. At that level, Hubbard reveals that we are all infested with space aliens that are called ‘Body Thetans,’ and they’re really the sources of all of the problems and fears and things that we have in our lives, and if you can audit yourself and discover these Thetans and expel them, it’s akin to casting out demons that you can free yourself to ever higher levels of spiritual accomplishment.”
