    Could someone, (probably Ming since he is the one who is doing research) give a brief idea as to the message Scientology brings?

    I think that it has to do with space ships and Xenu... but I could be wrong!

    I know it does have space ships. I am talking about the message it brings.

    Christianity - Accept that Jesus died for your sins, Repent and redeem yourself...
    Islam - Kiss my ass or go to hell....

    like wise...

    From what I understand, this movie is supposed to share the basic belief of Scientology. What the #$*! Do We (K)now!? (2004)

    It's something like "The way you think and look at things does affect the outcome in the physical world" as their belief.

As long as your values remain the same, you can use NLP to your advantage.
    By re-focusing, re-invigorating, re-directing... re-programming? Questioning why one would do this or that is jim dandy, but by what decision does one choose the new way? It's still you doing the choosing? How do you know your choice is not corrupted by the old you? Doesn't NLP go on about emulating the successful, effective people?

    And then there's the re-programming of others. That's part of it, isn't it. Being more effective at directing other people.

    The comparison makes no sense. Psychiatry is a science, proven to help people, while Scientology is a major scam.

    I'm not sure why there is an argument here or what the argument is about NLP. In my ten-minute search on NLP, all I see is that it's basically about challenging a person's misconceptions that have potentially been exposed to the therapist by what they've said (or not said) and getting them to reframe/recalibrate their thinking.

    What's the problem with that, and why is it being labeled as TJ?
    Some of us do this stuff naturally without having to be TJ at all.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Fuck them both.

    They both want your money and could care less about your peace of mind.
