One of the most fascinating things about the myriad cultures and religions across the world ate the similarities in their gods, devils, and saviors. Joseph Campbell states that these similarities abound because people from across the world try to make sense of their existence through these myths. They're drawn to the idea of a hero, which is why you see similar tales about figures like Jesus, Muhammad, and the Buddha.

Scientology offers a different view on this subjectThey believe that an alien overlord by the name of Xenu dropped a bunch of alien bodies into a series of active volcanoes, the souls from those bodies floated up into the sky. These souls were then caught by electronic beams and zapped into special theaters.

In those theaters, the spirits were bombarded with 3D images that brainwashed them with false information, like the concepts of God, the Devil, and Christ. After all that programming, the souls floated to Earth and embedded themselves in our bodies where they filled our heads with thoughts of western religion.

The Tone Scale

According to the established teachings of Scientology, a crucial aspect of achieving success lies in the ability to effectively understand and respond to others. While this notion may not be entirely surprising, Scientology goes further by asserting that the majority of individuals struggle to accurately discern the underlying emotions behind outward expressions.

To demystify human behavior, Scientology has developed a tool called the tone scale. This scale serves as a guide for practitioners, enabling them to interpret people's emotional states and appropriately respond to them. The aim is to enhance their capacity to read individuals and provide suitable emotional reactions in various situations.

The tone scale runs from -40 to 40, and the higher the score the better. A score of 40 is described as “Serenity of Beingness.” A 1.1 is considered secret antagonism and describes someone who can’t be trusted. Essentially, anyone who's against Scientology is a 1.1. But it's not just Scientology's enemies that score a 1.1, members of the LGBTQ+ community are automatically considered a 1.1 on the tone scale and they can only crawl their way out of that score by gaining spiritual elevation through heterosexuality.
