Ron Hubbard

Theta clearing is about as practical and simple as repairing a shoe lace. It is nothing to do with hypnotism, voodooism, charalatanism, monkeyism or theosophy. Done, the thetan can do anything a stage magician can do in the way of moving objects around.

So for the reason I brought up, rule out, auditor, any mumbo jumbo or mysticism, spiritualism, or religion. — L. Ron Hubbard
