Jeffrey Augustine’s Illustrated Guide to the Church of Scientology


1. CSI = Church of Scientology International.

2.  This chart is a follow on to my previous post: The Church of Scientology International Has No Members.

3. As CSI has no employees and no members, it can only be managed and operated by Sea Org members. Therefore, Captain Miscavige demonstrably controls CSI via the Sea Org.

4. Said another way, the only legally authorized agency through which CSI can operate as a religion is the Sea Org — and the Sea Org is an unincorporated religious order whose personnel are not CSI members. Therefore, the Sea Org is the operating arm of the Church of Scientology. However, as the Sea Org does not legally exist, Scientology is engaging a deliberately evasive style of operation. This is done on purpose and makes it virtually impossible for Scientology to be sued or held legally accountable for its actions. Of course, this is fraud on its face and yet another reason the IRS needs to revoke Scientology’s ill-gotten 1993 tax exemption.

5. Thus, the situation in CSI is this: Members of a legally non-existent religious order deliver Scientology religious services to IAS members in CSI facilities. No one in this equation – Sea Org, Staff, or IAS members — are members of CSI.

7. Conclusion: CSI exists for three reasons only:

* To own and hold property inside of which Scientology religious services take place between non-CSI parties, i.e. IAS public members and Sea Org members.

* To collect the monies paid by IAS public members for these services.

* To electronically record the religious services, especially the confessionals, that occur in its buildings. CSI maintains custody and ownership of these permanent recordings along with the actual paper pc folders. However, as Sea Org administers CSI, numerous Sea Org members have open access to these records. OSA Sea Org members may cull both the video files and written pc folders at any time for the purposes of obtaining damaging or incriminating information on IAS public members or on other Sea Org members.

Bottom Line: Per the Founder’s design, CSI is extraordinarily stingy and cruel. Nevertheless, CSI is forced to begrudgingly provide Sea Org members a subsistence-level existence only because it needs people in its money-making business. The Sea Org will be eliminated when RTC is able to purchase cheap ecclesiastical robots to replace humans. Robots don’t blow — and that is one of the key product features RTC finds most desirable about robots.

  1. Should be renamed Scientology, David Miscavige’s personal piggy bank. I would like to also rename OSA, cOSA ScioNOSTA.
    That is a great chart Jeffery. I have already pasted it on 🙂

  2. I don’t know about Sea Org members eventually being replaced by robots since it seems all Co$ entities are technophobic and David Miscavige gets off on forcing PEOPLE to serve him and admire him and loves to punish those who don’t (slapping, RPF, etc.). Robots would not acquire meager pay for thier work and donate to buy DM birthday gifts and whatnot.

    Great chart Jeff! Thank you for making it.

  3. While you make excellent points aegerprimo, the scientists in RTC will program the ecclesiastical robots to be fawning sycophants.

    Made from a rugged duraluminum alloy, the robots will be able to withstand ecclesiastical beatings. However, as COB continues to age at a rapid pace, his beatings will become those of an old man thrashing with the intensity of a soft pillow.

    As for DM’s birthday gift, it is an easy accounting move to pay the robots that week. AFAIK, it is not illegal to pay robots.

  4. Thank you for this great illustration showing how the money and the tech flow through the various corporate and non-profit entities. It is elegant in its simplicity and that is the highest compliment I give. It takes a lot of creativity and intelligence to take something (deliberately) complex and reduce it to it’s essence so the “bones” of it come into view.

    This is not only helpful to newcomers trying to learn about the CoS, but also to long time watchers and activists. I am sure former or current members will also find this flow chart useful and will feel relieved to finally see how all the different pieces of the corporate/religious puzzle fit together. Even if they dared to question while active in the church and received no repercussion just for asking, I’m sure they’ve deliberately been misled and, until now, have never been given a true overview of how all the different entities and divisions were structured – that is, to fill their “ecclesiastical leader’s” coffers instead of “clearing the planet.”

    My hope for you is that you will see this illustration on some courtroom projection screen – as soon.

    Thank you for all your work in exposing the fraud, criminal activity, and human rights abuses in this “church.”

    NOTE: For newcomers to this blog or to J. Swift’s other online endeavors to expose the CoS (Church of Scientology), may I recommend his radio blog where he interviews high ranking former members. Utterly fascinating, as well.
