“Tom Cruise made me talk to bottles & books”
That’s one of the craziest things I’ve EVER heard about Scientology and one of the most famous of its followers, Tom Cruise.
Former Scientologist Marc Headley who worked for the organization for 15 years has penned an explosive tell-all book about his experience in the cult. The self-published book, Blown for Good, details the ways he was overworked and manipulated by organization.
Though his book might be just one of the few to talk about Scientology and how it manipulates with human lives, Headley stands all chances to get hellova lot of attention due to juicy details about Tom Cruise and his work with young Scientologists.
In early 1990s Headley was “lucky” enough to be “audited” by Cruise himself for three weeks. During those so called “Upper Indoctrination Training Routines” Tom made him talk to bottles, books and doorknobs.
Check out the must-read quotes from his book:
“[Cruise] was going to do his auditor training and he needed someone to audit and this person had to be low on the bridge. That was me.”
[During the Upper Indoctrination Training Routines] you do a lot of things with a book and a bottle. It’s known as the book-and-bottle routine.” Cruise, he says, would instruct Headley to speak to a book, telling it to stand up, or to sit down, or otherwise to move somewhere.
“You do the same with the bottle. You talk to it. You do it with an ashtray too. You tell the ashtray, ‘Sit in that chair.’ Then you actually go over and put the ashtray on the chair. Then you tell the ashtray, ‘Thank you.’ Then you do the same thing with the bottle, and the book. And you do this for hours and hours.”
[The aim] was to get your intention over to the bottle. It was supposed to rehabilitate your ability to control things. And to be controlled.
The Doorknob thing
“Tom would ask me to find a place in the room that I could easily communicate to. I was supposed to look around the room, and then tell him the place I had picked out. I might say, ‘the doorknob.’ And he’d tell me to over there and touch it. And then he’d say, ‘OK. Now do it again with another place.’”
