Scientology DVDs give rare views of founder

There's a good article in the Toledo Blade on a set of DVDs of lectures by L. Ron Hubbard that were released by Mr. David Miscavige at the event that commemorated L. Ron Hubbard's birthday this year.

The lectures are called the Clearing Congress, and in them Ron gives news about breakthroughs in achieving the State of Clear (defined in the Scientology glossary as: "A Clear is a being who no longer has his own reactive mind. A Clear is an unaberrated person and is rational in that he forms the best possible solutions he can on the data he has and from his viewpoint. The Clear has no engrams which can be restimulated to throw out the correctness of computation by entering hidden and false data.")

At the event Mr. Miscavige showed the painstaking work that was done to restore the film - frame by frame - and examples of what it looked like before and after. If I hadn't seen the earlier version I wouldn't believe that these could possibly have been the same film.
