"I've even encountered a cluster that made a profession out of
killing patients in hospitals - the doctors would wonder why a patient
was fine and then all of a sudden take a turn for the worse and
die." (NOTs 36)
What would you do as an auditor if you came across a murderous
cluster? Would you call the police?
police - "911, what is your emergency?"
PC - [whispering] "There's a murderous cluster in my right elbow! Come
police - "Has someone been killed?"
PC - "Yes! They said they've killed dozens of people!"
police - "Where are you now, sir?"
PC - "210 S. Ft. Harrison! Come quickly! I'll keep them
distracted.... hey guys! Watch this spinning chair..."
What did LRH do when he encountered this murderous cluster? Did he
send them happily on their way, with no repercussions for the
murders? Is there a BT prison? Judicial system?
How do you pay a murderous cluster? How do you hire a Cluster hit
team? Who hires them?
Hubbard was known for implanting cruel and dangerous suggestions into unsuspecting hypnotic subjects at Hollywood parties. Hubbard himself stated that until 1945 there was only "Black Dianetics." Thereafter he researched "white Dianetics" which requires a semblance of helpful, friendly authority.
Despite his weird science indoctrination story and research, Hubbard's "clusters" are not what his "research" indicated: degraded beings glued together and stuck to the body and the person like cling-ons. In Freudian and Jungian terms, these psychological elements are known as complexes.
One may best understand the function of Magical Evocation within Rosicrucian Magic from a psychological perspective. Modern psychology offers the Magician important insight into processes known to Theurgists for thousands of years. The notion of the Unconscious, an aspect of the psyche lying beneath the threshold of conscious awareness, provides new insight into the nature of the Entities previously understood as Demons. Israel Regardie suggested that: "The term 'complex' has achieved a fairly wide notoriety during the last quarter century since the circulation of the ideas of Freud and Jung. It means an aggregation or group of ideas in the mind with a strong emotional charge, capable of affecting conscious thought and behavior." Living in the dark realm beyond the light of consciousness, the complexes enjoy a sort of semi-autonomy within the psyche.
