We have this simile of the bridge and the bridge goes from this state of existence to that state of existence. And the bridge is all complete now and it can be walked. But there’s one point: you have to walk on the bridge. —L. Ron Hubbard
Man, in his religious heritage, has long imagined two plateaus of existence separated by a chasm—the lower plateau representing life in the here and now, and the higher plateau representing a far better state of existence. But without a means to cross the chasm, that higher plateau remained inaccessible. Needed was a bridge to traverse the spanning.
L. Ron Hubbard built that bridge with Dianetics and Scientology and on September 9, 1965, in a historic filmed lecture, he introduced it to the world: The Classification, Gradation and Awareness Chart of Levels and Certificates. It marked the culmination of more than thirty years of research and provided the delineation of the precise step-by-step route by which one ascends to increasingly greater awareness, ability and spiritual freedom.
Through the ensuing years, Mr. Hubbard streamlined the route with new rundowns and higher levels. But the purpose, theory and pattern remained the same and will never change.
This landmark lecture is now fully restored to perfectly replicate the moment L. Ron Hubbard originally delivered it.
Here, then, is both the foundation of The Bridge to Total Freedom and the story of exploration that made its construction possible.
