“The primary operation that can be worked upon a thetan is to believe something dreadful will happen if he communicates! Do you understand that? … And the answer to his interference is, of course, don’t communicate at all. …
“These interpositions between the being and, you might say, his own creations are the only things which deters him from making sensible decisions, from being able to enjoy life, to have a game, play a game or do anything. The interposition: there’s something between him and life. He has to be careful, he has to be restrained. At no time must he fully live.
“Thetans teach each other the philosophy of restraint. They say some writer didn’t write well because he wrote with insufficient restraint. They say some dancer was too abandoned—insufficient restraint. They say that man cannot live without artificial threats and restraints. In other words, we get the whole priesthood of restraint, when the fact of the matter is there’s only one thing that permits you to fail. There’s only one way you can fail—just one route to failure, actually—and that is ‘not to communicate enough.’”
“If the world is cold, make it your business to build fires.”

“If we had an individual in fine shape and an individual who really could drive a jet plane, his communication lag would be zero, he could make his decision immediately and instantly and his affinity for the world and things around him would be instantaneous. …
“Now, why is it that a combat pilot has more accidents than a transport pilot? Is there any relationship between these two things? You bet there is. A combat pilot is taught to hate. He’s taught to stay out of communication. He’s taught to destroy and he’s taught to kill. And what do you think that does with his A? And that’s why he has wrecks. And that’s why military equipment is so hard to maintain. Decision cannot exist in the absence of affinity—good decision.
“So we can’t have the standard villain of fiction. He doesn’t exist, this standard villain of fiction. He is something that has been put off upon the world and the public by writers, such as a couple in the audience and myself. [laughter]
“This cold, calculating, inevitably and always right villain does not exist. If he is cold and calculating, his A is missing. And if that affinity is missing, R, the ability to make a decision, is also missing. So the decisions he makes will most often be wrong decisions.”
“Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.”
