      ** The video store down the block didn't carry any Fu Manchu
      movies. I had to buy them elsewhere. They should arrive in a week
      or two. Until then....

      ** In essence the cultist lives in a fantasy world, or rather a
      shared fantasy in which more than one person is collectively
      involved. In the case of RSE, you have thousands: a whole community
      believing that they're master is an ascended god, and that the
      information that they receive from the Ranch is Top Secret.
      Collective illusion-making is a fascinating dynamic of a cult, RSE
      included; the delusions aren't lived by a single individual. The
      illusions are reinforced by the community. When you have thousands
      of people all forced into thinking the same thought and feeling the
      same emotions that creates a very powerful dynamic, a group soul.
      Although powerful, it hinders individuation of the ego, stunts
      personal growth, and makes having an ego wholly un-necessary.
      Thinking, willing and feeling is taken over by a collective
      organization of souls bound together by a thread of like-mindedness.
      The ego is absolved of the responsibility of having to think for
      itself; in effect, submerges into un-conscious state highly
      susceptible to brainwashing techniques. The "cultist" becomes, in
      Tomberg terms, a herd animal, "negating all that is individual and
      aristocratic in favor of devoting oneself all-the-more-strongly to a
      pride that is sub-individual and collectivized."

      ** Again, the objective of Ramtha's School of Enlightenment is to
      ensnare people in fantasy; or to be more exact, ensnare them in a
      philosophy in which fantasy supplants objective truth as the basis
      of reality. In JZs philosophy, there is no truth, nor objective
      reality. There are only individual realities based on a person's
      subjective understanding. Therefore fantasy is reality; a sort of
      Eighth Sphere in which the soul is unable to differentiate between
      what belongs to reality and what is merely thought.

      The word Eight Sphere is an old occult term from the nineteenth
      century. Today we might use the term "virtual reality" to describe
      the type of realm that the RSE student aims for in his/her spiritual
      practices. Their aim is not to live according to divine principles,
      after all. It is to give substantiality and dimension to fantasies;
      it is to exist on a plane of being where their own personal desires
      manifest themselves without limit; it is to replace a world based on
      divine principles with a world in which their subjective thoughts
      may achieve instantaneous gratification; where they live as if in a
      dream, without pain or suffering and without karmic atonement; where
      they may live eternally in the illusion of their own making.
      Ultimately, the purpose of the Eighth Sphere is to exist in a
      reality based on egotistical desires, where egotism reaches its
      fullest possible manifestation. Here man is subjected to the hell
      of his own egotism.
