Who Is The Pilot?

From "Super SCIO: The Book of The Pilot"
Autobiography by Pilot.


I have been involved in Scientology since 1965. I came in with great hopes and high goals, and since they were not entirely betrayed, I kept my mouth shut and hung on despite all of the obvious failings.

By late 1968, I had passed beyond the fanatic stage and could see that the organization and the tech had serious flaws. But I would not abandon the truths I had learned just because of Ron's imperfections or the Sea Org's insanities. Instead, I followed Ron's own advice, which was to ignore all authorities, including Ron, and evaluate each datum on its own merits and discover what was true for myself rather than simply believing in the subject.

When I finally finished my staff contract in the early 1970s, I was too disillusioned to continue working for the organization. But I still believed and continue to believe deeply in the expressed goals and purposes of the subject. I had made tremendous gains in auditing and helped others by auditing them (often for free on my own time). Any deficiencies I perceived in the tech and the organization were attributed to the incomplete research and the failings of the all too human members of the group. So I continued to study and do upper levels, and especially, I began to track down and study the thousands of hours of taped lectures from the 1950s, searching first for the origins of the almost magical materials we were using and eventually discovering that three quarters of the subject had been lost and that the bulk of later policy and flag orders were almost 180 degrees in conflict with the basics that were outlined in the early days.

And I decided to follow Ron's original ideas and inspirations in preference to the later dramatizations. And the further I went with this, the more I found myself at odds with the organization and its current policies and practices. I now firmly believe that the subject is still on a research line and that we do not have all the answers. I believe that Ron was right originally when he said (upon discovering implants and other advanced materials in 1952) that it would be deadly to make any of the tech confidential. And I think that he was spot on when he said that someday we will have to cry "Auditors of the world arise, you have nothing to lose but your certs" (auditors certificates).

For the last decade, I have been researching on my own, trying to carry the subject on to its next stage. No subject has ever been researched completely by a single individual, nor has two ever been enough. Its an ongoing process and the number of great names connected with even a single practical area such as electricity is enormous.

For all this time, I have kept quiet and supported the existing organization because I could offer nothing better. Now, however, its time to blow the lid off and give you everything I've got.

The first document in this series will shoot heavily at the existing organization. This is unfortunately necessary because there is so much wrong and the lies and overts block the road to truth. Certainly the anti-cultists will have a field day. But my goal is to bring about a reform rather than the destruction of the subject.

I am remaining anonymous at this time because I expect a severe knee jerk reaction from the organization. It's bitter medicine for them to swallow and they may lash out. But I expect that time will temper this, so my only purpose in remaining anonymous is to stay out of sight until things cool down a little. This will interfere with people sending me mail on the internet, but I will try to watch for general postings on the net which mention the "Pilot" in their message headers and will try to answer any reasonable questions that are posted. This is not an attempt to duck any responsibility. I will let you know who I am eventually, just give it some time.

I am making these materials freely available on the internet despite the tremendous amount of work that has gone into researching them and writing them up because the existing examples of what can happen to a spiritual subject when it is used to generate income is enough to make my flesh crawl. I ask only that you try to make the entire set of documents available rather than simply copying around document #1 which is a bit of an expose. I think it would be unfair to put out that much criticism without offering the positive materials that are in the remaining documents.

Also, the full set of documents, or at least #2 through #4, are necessary to convince the tech trained loyalists that reform is indeed possible and necessary. The auditors and case supervisors are the high priests of the subject and if they can be turned around, then the rest of the membership will follow. International management will have no choice but to go along.

For those who wish to destroy the subject, I would point out that it never works to persecute a religion. The faith and fanaticism always grow stronger. The only workable course is to change it into something better. In this I ask your help in keeping these materials available and helping to spread them to the loyalists. Let Scientology become what it pretends to be, a learning center for spiritual growth instead of a cult of greed and power.

I am not trying to promote a new subject or start a freezone organization. I have no personal vested interest in this. I'm just giving this stuff away.

If I receive any exchange for doing this, it will be in inspiring others to do research which will aid me in my own efforts. I don't think that I (or anyone else, including LRH) can go the entire route alone.

I don't think that there is any serious leagal liability in posting this or putting it up on the web. I need to remain hidden because it is a suppressive act (per policy) to attempt to reform the subject. Its hard to reform from within if you're officially kicked out. Also there is a slight chance that I might be placed in physical danger if my identity were exposed before any storm that I might be raising has a chance to settle out. Those outside of the subject might not think so, but some in management might consider this to be the most dangerous threat that they have ever faced because their own supporters might turn on them.

For any of my friends who might be in the middle of some Scientology level when they get ahold of these documents, I wish to warn them that they might want to finish what they are doing first before they plow into these materials. First of all, I believe that some of the things that I have found are considerably more advanced that anything being used currently in Scientology. And secondly, I believe that it is necessary to be totally unconstrained in discussing material that has been labeled confidential. Also, for anyone reading the internet it is a bit silly to worry about the confidentiality because almost all of the OT platens, clearing course materials, and full Nots auditors packs have been flying around on-line for quite some time now and a free and sensible discussion is liable to cool things down rather than stir them up.

I think that one of the major factors that dragged Ron down in the end was that he cut his own communication lines when he made the materials confidential. Until then, he was continually talking to his students (on the Briefing Course in the 1960s and in the Advanced Clinical Courses (ACCs) in the 1950s) and this probably acted to some degree like an auditing session, allowing the mental charge of what he was researching to flow away from him. When he cut that line, it backed up on him. This was a sad fate for someone who truly loved to talk and lecture.




I met Ken a few times.
I met some of his friends too.
Ken was a big man, very masculine looking, but more feminine than I, and that is a tall order.
Not just feminine, but he had complete mastery of being a feminine celebrity, maybe what you would expect in character if you met Liz Taylor.
He held court every tuesday at a Greek restaurant in L.A. and anyone and everyone could come and it was as if Marie Antionette was holding court! He was flamboyant and one of the wittiest people if not the wittiest, I have ever known. He had a very sharp mind and I can assure you, it was impossible not to be driven to tears with laughter by his wit.
His companion when I knew him, was a fellow named Timmy, and the two of them together in the same place carried one into a dimension of sheer glee and unimportance about anything. They were both very good company and very magical.
Ken was, is, and perhaps always will be the Royal Shakespeare Theatre of Scientology. He wanted to have fun, caused others to have fun, and was generous with his beautiful mind. He took us on a funny side of Scientology and cast our burdens about it to the wind. It went into a catagory of comedy relief. He taught me there was laughter involved with it to be had.
He loved to entertain, whip at your reality, be worshipped by his followers, and found great joy in the pretense of life. 
Ken was very generous to people though and visitors, and was surrounded by theatre and film people in his later chapter.
And certainly I think Ken would not have wanted an ordinary death.
One filled with total theatre would be his trademark.
The main point is, people like Ken never see a final curtain.
So, until the next act, we thank him for the last performance.
And a marvelous one it was!

I met Ken Ogger only once, in early 2000. My new husband Paul, whom I had married in 1998, and I talked about his situation and decided together that I had to fly from my home country Austria to LA on the other side of the globe and at least try to help Ken out of the black hole into which he had fallen. I couldn’t stay longer than a weekend, but I was deeply touched by what I saw. 


I think the whole freezone was concerned about Ken’s then recent postings, in which he disclosed alarming details about his case and his health - about his overwhelming sexual cravings, how his teeth were falling out, and how he was thinking about suicide. Originally when “The Pilot” (his pen name) sent out his posts, we were used to see a brilliant analysis of LRH technology and how the church failed to apply it. Or something like the “Selfclearing” manual that would allow people to work around the copyright problems with LRH materials. Or a clever debate – all posts emanating mental strength and emotional stability.


Ken Ogger

Ken Ogger Pilot pictureKen Ogger, a long time scientologist was found dead in his swimming pool on May the 29th 2007.

According to Ogger's girlfriend, "He was found dead today, on May 29, in the pool of his house. When the police took his body out, his hands were tied with a wire, and something heavy and concrete attached to his feet.

'We were supposed to have a date on Monday night. Monday was a Memorial Day in America. He didn't come. He had never broke dates, and in case of any changes he always warned me. I couldn't reach him on the phone, and eventually drove to his place. His mother opened the door. It turned out she had no idea where he was.' said his girlfriend. 'His car was there, so we assumed that somebody picked him up. But what worried us most ... no calls from him. The phone in his house was broken, but he never called me either. It was last night, on May 28, Monday, the Memorial Day. Today when I came to Ken's mother, she said at the door: 'He is dead in the pool."

Ogger had been what is known as an old time scientologist from the early days and was well versed in the philosophy. He wrote a number of works about the philosophy and its application and had been an outspoken critic of the new Church of Scientology regime since the demise of the Founder of the church and had been, according to posts he posted on the internet, subject to continual harassment by the Churches infamous Dept of Special Affairs (OSA).

The Church of Scientology is perhaps one of the most litigious in the world not hesitating to sue at the drop of a hat. OSA, their secret security 'arm' continues to harass ex-scientologists (known as Scientology Freezoners) around the world in an attempt to prevent them from practicing their religion despite, at the same time, crying wolf and protesting freedom of religion around the world.

Recently, during a documentary on scientology by the BBC, a continual provoking of a BBC Panorama TV Crew resulted in a screaming match observed around the world. Tributes continue to flowing in around the world for Ken Ogger from scientologists in the Scientology Freezone.

Ken Ogger, known as "The Pilot", a pioneer of the

Free Zone, was found drowned in the pool of his house in LA on the 29th of May 2007.

His hands were tied with wire and a heavy concrete weight held his legs down.

The police is investigating.


Ken Ogger was known as the author of analyses about the Church of Scientology's mismanagement and author of auditing manuals. After his own wife betrayed his identity to the church, he suffered a breakdown and soon afterwards went through a severe health crisis.

On 20th of May 2007 he reported back to his newsgroups in his old dynamic way. He published a series of texts in which he told about his physical recovery, about his plans to become active as "Pilot" again, but also about the Church of Scientology's attacks on his private life.

Nine days later he was dead.
