Here are the condensed results of Hubbard's epoch-making research on computers:
Not entirely successful now, was it?
Fortunately for us computing turned out to be a whole hell of a lot more chaotic than many people expected.
All hail the iconoclast geeks who have made and are making this medium of expression as infinite as humanly possible!
However, I am reminded of the stories of programs like 'echelon/carnivore'. I could see 'L Ron, The Toady' trying to 1) make money 2) rule the world by selling some variation of this thing to the government in the day (via a front group) or implementing it via implanted 'Snow White'-type infiltrators.
Thankfully, we seem to have dodged that bullet.
Sounds to me like Hubbard didn't know shit about computers, much less where they would end up taking us.
Hilarious! Thanks, OP!
Unfortunately, INCOMM's "whole track computers" were not as efficiently as Hubbard had promised in 1985. I remember well the day in early 1992 when the CO IMCOMM in Clearwater tried to add a few mailing lists from outer orgs to the FSO's address data base: the whole system crashed and stayed crashed for a week. Not really the technology to "successfully administer whole planets."
What OS were they using?
Thanks Martin,I spent ages looking for this HCO.
I only found half of it,a while back.
Unix spelled backwards.
From page #3 -
- appears to be the psychotic moonbat OS.
A hypothetical planet run by Hubbard's tech and policy programmed into computers would be something like The Penultimate Truth meets Vulcan's Hammer.
Too bad that his paragraph about the Internet was accidentally left out.
His OT prediction powers failed him miserably.
He really meant to spell it INCOME.
The hubris just drips throughout that whole document... fat fucking arrogant bastard.
Yeah, that would be the clincher that really made it work.
I'm guessing that if every INCOMM printer started spitting out copies of Miscavige's SP Declare, they probably wouldn't buy it?
I know of a guy who was asked by the cult in L A to work for them running their computers. He saw the cult members in uniforms and observed their behavior and said no way!
Awww, that's kind of a shame, because his stories about his experiences would have been hilarious!
OMG I want a whole track computer for christmas!
Making babies laugh since 2008.
In the 80's to early 90's the computers where WICAT (world institute of computer assisted training). In the 90's we started implementing Unix systems on MIPS computers. Then some systems like FAST (stored all text for searching e.g. telexes and internal mail) and the data files (all the reports etc scanned in from the Orgs) where on Intel servers running SCO Unix. That was up to the mid 90's. After that I don't know, but I heard all the WICATs where eventually replaced with Intel servers.

As far as I know the actual advices from Hubbard have not been leaked.
Thanks for answering my question
Yes, we can only wish that those advices would be leaked by some kind soul...
Imagine CoS vs The Bastard Operator from Hell.
or a well-placed Anon Plant
Not precisely. In Dianetics Hubbard compared human mind to a computer. That resemblance has been valid. Dunno who else compared human mind to a computer at that time (1950). Also, Hubbard had high hopes for computer technologies, the ones that we now consider as habitual as a cooker or a car.
No, Hubbard's comparison of the mind to computers was bullshit. He obviously had no real understanding of how computers worked, especially the ones in the 40s/50s.
Sounds funny! And Coool!
Every Scientology Organization *must* have one. Or two. - And have them leak their going-on to WWP. LOL!
This is your problem: you think your mind is like a computer.
You and Hubbard: both wrong.
Well, to a layman like me he described them pretty well.
Also, I don't think (now) that Hubbard was a superhuman of some sort who was able to know everything about everything better than everyone else and before everybody else. He was just a poor human being, like you and me. In some things he was weaker than you and in some stronger than you. It's normal.
Share your theory, please. I'd like to hear all about it.
I STILL WANT A WHOLE TRACK COMPUTER FOR XMAS
Anyone know where I can find one?
Someplace in the Internet, may be?
According to hubbard, his INCOMM group was making that amazing computer back in 1985. Surely by now it should be ubiquitous and I should have no problem getting my hands on one because of course everyone will want one ...
Oh, he didn't see computers being used in that way, did he? Couldn't fathom the idea of a portable pocket computer/phone/camera/videogame system etc. for anyone who had the money to buy one.
I remember as a cultie, reading the "Computer Series" and the "Art Series" and thinking, "LRH doesn't know fuck-all about either of these topics."
I should've been sec-checked a little more
hubbard wasn't ever bigger that life being.
He impressed people, yes.
He made them think and feel he knows much more shit than he really knew, yes.
He made people believe in his theories, yes.
Hubbard was never a person people tended to believe he was. - He was just a poor Sci-Fi writer who wanted luxury. He wanted "American Dream came true" type of shit. - Well, he got that, didn't he?
If only my Anonymous Dream would come true... *sigh*
As I remember, hubbard compared the mind to a calculator with a held down 5.
Real scientific, that
