Drawing from his background as a science fiction writer, L. Ron Hubbard crafted a race of malevolent extraterrestrial beings called the Marcabians to add an enticing element to his storytelling.

The Marcabians think of Earth, or Teegeeack if you're a Marcabian, as a place where they can dump prisoners and individuals deemed socially undesirable. By erasing their memories and dispatching their thetans near nearby volcanoes, the Marcabians utilize our planet for this purpose. Furthermore, these creatures claim responsibility for the creation of the human species, which fuels their belief that they have a legitimate claim over both our bodies and the Earth itself.

There is also speculation that their ultimate objective is to subject everyone on our planet to brainwashing, aiming to establish complete dominion. Thankfully this has yet to come to pass.

Humans Evolved From Basically Everything

In L. Ron Hubbard’s book, Scientology: The History of Man, the author drills down on descriptions of things that happened to us in previous lives. According to the beliefs of Scientology, thetans, which are considered everlasting beings, have lived through numerous past lives that have been marked by various traumas spanning across time. Consequently, individuals in the present possess subconscious recollections of these past lives, embodying diverse forms such as clams, atoms, cells undergoing mitosis, early photosynthetic organisms, sloths, and many others.

Hubbard states that the clam is a great example of our past lives, he argues specifically that over millennia the hinges of the clam eventually transformed into the hinges of the human jaw and that by getting in touch with your inner clam, you can change the way you act as a human. Hubbard writes:

Should you desire to confirm this, describe to some uninitiated person the death of a clam without saying what you are describing. ‘Can you imagine a clam sitting on the beach, opening and closing its shell very rapidly?’ (Make a motion with your thumb and forefinger of a rapid opening and closing).
The victim may grip his jaws with his hand and feel quite upset. He may even have to have a few teeth pulled: At the very least he will argue as to whether or not the shell stays open at the end or closed. And he will, with no hint of the death aspect of it, talk about the ‘poor clam’ and he will feel quite sad emotionally.

Hubbard continues:

Discussion of these incidents with the uninitiated in Scientology can cause havoc. Should you describe the ‘clam’ to someone, you may restimulate it in him to the extent of causing severe jaw pain. One such victim, after hearing about a clam death, could not use his jaws for three days.
