23 January 1986
Sherman Lenske draws up a new will--on the day before L. Ron Hubbard
purportedly dies--that includes reference to an "Author's Family Trust
B," which is created on the same day. Norman F. Starkey is named as
Trustee of Author's Family Trust B, and named as Executor of the Will.
The will very thoroughly covers the disposition of Hubbard's
intellectual property (which is to ALL go to Author's Family Trust B,
and then to CST) in language that bespeaks a very THOROUGH understanding
by Sherman Lenske (and/or whoever helped him write this section) of ALL
RAMIFICATIONS of the prevailing statuatory and common law regarding
intellectual property:

    "I give, devise and bequeath all of the rest, residue and
    remainder of my estate...including, but not limited to the
    following:
    "(a) My entire right, title, and interest in and to my
    name, voice, signature, photograph, and likeness,
    together with any trademark and service marks composed
    of and/or utilizing same and all registrations and
    applications for registration of such trademarks and
    service marks.
    ("b) My entire right, title, and interest in the nineteen
    (19) year period of extended copyright protection and in
    all copyright rights provided thereby in all
    copyrightable works written or created by me and/or
    assigned to me prior to January 1, 1978, which nineteen
    (19) year period of extended copyright protection is
    created by Section 304 of Title 17, United States Code.
    "(c) My entire right, title, and interest in the right or
    ability to renew, or to file renewal claims for, all
    copyrights on or in all copyrightable works written or
    created by me and/or assigned to me prior to January 1,
    1978.
    "(d) My entire right, title, and interest in all
    copyrights on or in all copyrightable works written or
    created by me and/or assigned to me on or after January
    1, 1978.
    "(e) My entire right, title, and interest in all
    statutory and common law copyrights on or in all other
    copyrightable works written or created by me and/or
    assigned to me, regardless of when the works were
    written or created, including but not limited to
    copyrights on or in works covered by Section 303 of
    Title 17, United States Code.
    "(f) All property over which I may have power of
    appointment by Will.
    "to the then-acting Trustee, or Trustees, under the
    AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-B, earlier established today by
    written agreement bearing the date of this WILL."

What is absent from the will itself--but is included in the "trust
instrument" creating Author's Family Trust B (which is incorporated
completely into the will, but only by reference)--is that all the
described intellectual property will ultimately pass into the possession
and control of the corporation known as "Church of Spiritual Technology"
(CST). There is a prerequisite, though, as found in an "AGREEMENT" dated
1 June 1987 [see] between Norman F. Starkey and Mary Sue Hubbard:

    "[T]he balance of his [L. Ron Hubbard's] estate,
    including copyrights, patents and trademarks, would go
    to the Church of Spiritual Technology PROVIDED IT
    OBTAINED TAX EXEMPT STATUS [emphasis added]; and if not,
    to such tax exempt organization or organizations...as NFS
    [Norman F. Starkey] may in his sole discretion determine."

[EDITOR'S NOTE: Every twist and turn of the above paragraph brings new
surprises--or land mines. Stripping away the stilted language of the
author--attorney Sherman Lenske--there is ONLY ONE "OPTION": the
intellectual property HAS to go to a "tax exempt organization." Period.
But at this point in time, the Church of Scientology of California has
been denied tax exemption, and neither CST nor ANY of the senior
Scientology corporatations set up by Sherman Lenske and friends have
received "tax exempt status." The implications are enormous. Either it
has been privately and secretly predetermined between Lenske and IRS
that CST will be granted tax exemption at some time in the future,
and/or there is an existing or pre-planned organization that already HAS
or is GUARANTEED "tax exempt status," and which is a PREDETERMINED
possible alternate recipient for the intellectual property. There are no
other possibilities. Entertaining, however reluctantly, such a seemingly
outré hypothesis, we surprisingly find that it then provides the first
logical explanation ever posited for Meade Emory's secretive involvement
in the set-up of CST. And then we find incredulity continuing to erode
as ensuing otherwise-inexplicable events support the postulate
uniformly, and without exception. --Ed.]

A report on file states that CIA-contracted psychiatrist Louis Jolyon
"Jolly" West has been at Fort Meade involved in the "remote viewing"
program. According to the source West has made a "connection between the
psychic powers and brain waves," theorizing that "brain waves are like
radio waves," and that "they both travel in a way not limited to each
individual mind, but on 'signal lines' that allow people to tune in to
them." The source goes on to say that "with the help of his team," West
develops a "brief" for the CIA called "Remote Viewing." [NOTE: There is
further corroborating evidence in reports on file and cited herein that
West has been assigned by CIA to "rewrite" the texts on remote viewing
and to couch them in Jungian and Freudian terminology. The date is
uncertain, but this is included for further verification because it is
consistent with other reports on West's involvement in the Remote
Viewing program, and is placed around the beginning of 1986 because of
the date of a purported "manual" called "Controlled Remote Viewing" (see
entries for 1 May 1986 and 5 July 1998). The content of the so-called
"manual" is entirely consistent with these reports on West's
involvement, and the manual is also falsely attributed to Ingo Swann.]
SOURCE: Report, "Remote Viewing: View to Reality," Chris Finnegan; also

Institute or Illicit CIA Mind Control Experimentation?"

1 May 1986
A "manual" for "Coordinate Remote Viewing" [made public on 5 July 1998,
see] is purportedly printed on this date by the DIA. Yet it has no
official DIA document number, and is not classified in any way. The
opening page, which claims, "The following document has been prepared to
serve as a comprehensive explanation of the theory and mechanics of
coordinate remote viewing (CRV) as developed by SRI-International, Menlo
Park, California," and then carries this statement: "NOTE: INFORMATION
CONTAINED IN THIS DOCUMENT IS GOVERNED BY CORPORATE LAWS OF PROPRIETY.
INGO SWANN, AN SRI-INTERNATIONAL SUBCONTRACTOR, RETAINS EXCLUSIVE
OWNERSHIP OF THIS INFORMATION. BEING PROPRIETARY, INFORMATION CONTAINED
HEREIN MAY NOT BE REPRODUCED OR DISSEMINATED WITHOUT THE EXPRESS WRITTEN
PERMISSION OF INGO SWANN." But Ingo Swann says he wrote no part of it.
[See EDITOR'S NOTE at 5 July 1998 entry.] The manual is filled with
psychiatric language and references, e.g.: "RV theory relies on a rather
Freudian model of human consciousness levels." The "manual" covers
so-called "signal lines" later attributed to CIA-psychiatrist Louis
Jolyon "Jolly" West. What it does not cover or even touch upon, in any
form or fashion, is anything having even "remotely" [pun intended] to do
with Scientology, when the three most senior and important personnel
ever associated with the CIA-sponsored remote viewing program at SRI
International were all Scientology OTs.

"Larry" Wollersheim v. Church of Scientology of California (CSC).

Documents ostensibly prepared by Executor of the Estate of L. Ron
Hubbard Norman F. Starkey [see NOTE below] and filed with the San Luis
Obispo county clerk's office by attorney Charles Ogle of Morro Bay, show
that L. Ron Hubbard has left $26,305,706.00 in assets, EXCLUDING TRUST
FUNDS (emphasis added). They include "$25 million even" in copyright and
trademark materials and $1,305,706 in oil, gas and business investments.
The listed assets do not include money Hubbard put into trust funds for
his wife, four of his five children and THE CHURCH OF SPIRITUAL
TECHNOLOGY [emphasis added]. Attorney Ogle says that "the amount in the
trust funds is private." A statement issued by Starkey's office
[falsely] states: "As per Mr. Hubbard's instructions, ownership of all
his copyrighted works will pass to the Church of Scientology." [NOTE:
Ownership of all Hubbard's copyrighted works ulitimately passes to the
corporation known as Church of Spiritual Technology on 29 November 1993.
Also note that the source credits Norman F. Starkey with the preparation
of the documents, when it is virtually certain that the documents were
actually prepared by Starkey's attorney, Sherman Lenske, who had set up
every detail of the Will, the Estate, and the various associated Trusts.
Consistent with Lenske's M.O., his name is never associated with his
behind-the-scenes machinations unless absolutely necessary or forced
into the open.]

Okey-dokey, Robbie. *That's* what I meant *earlier* when I said the
intellectual property was about 95% of the Estate--excluding the secret
slush funds-- um, I mean, Trust Funds, that Lenske set up. Now, we're
just going to have to stop right here for juuuuuust a minute and let me
get you a stubby little ARSCC Chimerical Library pencil--uh huh, there
you go--and this little library pad... Here you go. Now you must write
this down, because it is going to be *very* interesting later on: that
the "copyright and trademark materials"--you know, the ones that CST
wound up owning ALL controlling interest in--are officially valued at
*exactly* $25 million. Write write write! Don't ask "why," just write it
down, silly! Good! Okey-dokey. We we can move along now...

1 June 1987
An agreement [certainly written by Norman Starkey's attorney Sherman
Lenske] is signed between Mary Sue Hubbard and "Norman F. Starkey,
Trustee of Author's Family Trust under the Amended Trust Agreement dated
23 January, 1987." [EDITOR'S NOTE: The referenced document says
specifically "Author's Family Trust"--NOT "Author's Family Trust-B."
There has been a good deal of confusion about these two apparently
different trusts. The confusion is made possible and aggravated by the
inherent legal barricades against access to the documentation that would
make full understanding possible. A clear distinction between these
trusts--IF there is one--cannot possibly be made without access to the
actual trust instruments, which will likely never be accessible short of
criminal prosecution. However, since this 1 June 1987 AGREEMENT between
Norman F. Starkey and Mary Sue Hubbard refers to "Author's Family Trust
under the Amended Trust Agreement dated 23 January, 1987," and since
that is the KNOWN date of the creation of what is referred to as
"Author's Family Trust-B," it is possible that "Author's Family Trust-B"
is merely a name ascribed in the "Amended Trust Agreement" to the
amendment of the original "Author's Family Trust"--which had been
created at the time of an earlier Will. If you didn't follow all that,
you will never, ever learn the Tango. --Ed.] Here is the Agreement
reproduced in full, as it was posted to the internet by Keith Henson,
including Henson's comments at the bottom regarding signatures, witness,
and notary:

AGREEMENT
    THIS AGREEMENT made as of this 1st day of June, 1987, by and
between MARY SUE HUBBARD ("MSH") and NORMAN F. STARKEY as Trustee of
Author's Family Trust under the Amended Trust Agreement dated 23
January, 1987 (NFS) with reference to the following:
    [A.?] Ron Hubbard, the founder of the religion of Scientology
established Author's Family Trust to ensure MSH his beloved wife,
would be supported for the remainder of her life and that the balance
of his estate, including copyrights, patents and trademarks, would go
to the Church of Spiritual Technology provided it obtained tax exempt
status; and if not, to such tax exempt organization or organizations
embracing the religion of Scientology as NFS may in his sole
discretion determine.
    B. Paragraph E of Article Six, titled "Support Trust," of the
Amended Trust Agreement provides that NFS shall in his sole discretion
determine an amount to set aside for MSH's support, which amount shall
be based upon her life expectancy, the anticipated inflation,
investment yields over that expectancy and anticipated federal and
state income tax rates.
    C. NFS recognizes and acknowledges with deep gratitude MSH's
past contributions to the religion of Scientology and her desire to
benefit the religion in the future.
For and in consideration of a sum certain receipt and
sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties do hereby
contract, agree and stipulate as follows:
    1. MSH forever relinquishes, renounces, waives and releases
all rights to support or payment of any kind under Paragraph E of
Article Six of the Amended Trust Agreement dated the 23rd day of
January, 1986.
    2. In addition, MSH forever relinquishes, renounces, waives
and releases all right, or claim to or against any assets, property,
income, monies, funds, securities bank or savings accounts,
copyrights, trademarks, partnership interests, real property or any
other thing of value owned by or belonging to or purchased, recorded,
maintained or standing in the name of L. Ron Hubbard, NFS, Norman F.
Starkey, as personal representative of. the Estate of L. Ron Hubbard
or Author Services, Inc. as nominee for any of the foregoing.
    3. This Agreement shall apply to and be binding upon and
inure to the benefit of the respective heirs, administrators,
executors, legal representatives, assigns, successors and agents of
the parties hereto.
    4. Each and every provision of this Agreement is severable
from any and all other provisions of this Agreement. Should any
provision of this Agreement be for any reason unenforceable, the
balance shall nonetheless be of full force and effect.
    5. This Agreement is made and entered into freely and
voluntarily by each of the parties. Each party has read this
Agreement and fully understands the terms, provisions and legal
consequences of the Agreement.
    IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have executed this
Agreement before witnesses and a Notary as of the date _ first above
written.

down. So Shermy Wormy has his little Norm and and his little Vorm,
Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-Dummer, and some cute little P.O. Boxes they can
all hide in. Sheeeeesh. Shermy sure likes to keep it in the family, huh?

According to Steven Fishman's claims, he purchases "the Advanced
Technology, or upper-level materials, from a Scientologist in 1987, for

Lawyer" article, Fishman claims that he purchased the materials from an
unnamed Scientology "staffer" who needed money.)

17 September 1987
Norman F. Starkey, as Executor of the Estate of L. Ron Hubbard (which
will ultimately be transferred to CST), signs a licensing agreement with
RTC, purportedly granting them an exclusive license to the use of the
copyrighted materials related to specific Advanced Technology (OT
Levels, NOTs, etc.), with the obligation to ENFORCE THE COPYRIGHTS AND
TRADE SECRETS [emphasis added] in those works. This agreement is
specifically NOT a transfer of ownership in the copyrights, but merely
an exclusive LICENSE for the use of them, requiring the enforcement of
them by RTC. [NOTE: There is little question that the "Licensing
Agreement" between the Estate and RTC was certainly written by Norman F.
Starkey's attorney at the time, Sherman Lenske. No copy of this
licensing agreement has been found publically available.]

Lenske.]

The corporation known as "Church of Spiritual Technology" has spent
$9,553,582.00 during 1989 building underground vaults with titanium
doors in in several locations in the United States, in which they are to
store intellectual property of L. Ron Hubbard. One of these vaults is in
New Mexico, and is described by CST in a tax-exempt application as
follows:

    "[A] 700 foot tunnel vault in New Mexico. The vault was
    designed and built to last a minimum of 1,000 years. It
    is a rock tunnel, constructed by drilling and blasting,
    which has high strength concrete floors and walls made
    of high durability and water resistant materials. The
    tunnel finish is gunnite followed by troweled lime for
    long term durability, followed by a spray applied layer
    of acrylic marble dust mixture for extreme hardness and
    water resistance, followed by three coats of
    polyurethane paint. Several complete sets of the
    archival scriptrues will be stored in this vault."

[EDITOR'S NOTE: On 24 August 1992 (see)--just a little over one year
before they receive ownership and control of all the copyrights and
trademarks as a result of the secret Closing Agreement with IRS--CST
will transfer land it owns in New Mexico into the possession of the
federal government of the United States in exchange for a different
parcel of government-owned land in New Mexico. There is every likelihood
that the land turned over to the federal government is the same land
containing this 700 foot tunnel vault. And its contents? Who can
possibly know? --Ed.]

literary works, other than the Advanced Technology materials, and to
"make and publish compilations AND DERIVATIVE WORKS [emphasis added] of
and from the published literary works, and to ENFORCE ALL RIGHTS
[emphasis added] in those works." [NOTE: There is little question that
the "Licensing Agreement" between the Estate and BPI was certainly
written by Norman F. Starkey's attorney at the time, Sherman Lenske.
There is NO trasfer of ownership of copyrights in this agreement; it is
a LICENSE only that grants exlusive use, but also requires ENFORCEMENT
of the rights by BPI. Also, no copy of this agreement can be found
publically available.]

that Graham Berry is part of.

9 or 14 April 1993 [See "NOTE:" below]
As part of what will come to be known as "The Fishman Affidavit," 69
pages of various "Advanced Technology" works--OT Levels I through
VIII--are filed into Steven Fishman's unsealed court file, making those
documents part of the public record. [NOTE: There are conflicting
accounts and allegations of who, exactly, placed the documents there,
where they came from, and even when they were filed. Attorney Graham
Berry later states to a court that he did not file them, as had been
alleged. Larry Wollersheim later proves to be in possession of a copy of
the "Fishman Affidavit" and attachments that has a court-filing date
stamp of 9 April 1993, which he will claim that he obtained "when it was
filed with the Central District of California." One problem with that
claim by Wollersheim, though, is that he has not yet, as of this date,
been retained by Graham Berry's law firm, Louis, D'Amato, as an expert
consultant or expert witness in the case: according to one of
Wollersheim's own Declaration's, both he and his 501(c)(3) corporation
(which will be known ultimately as "F.A.C.T.Net, Inc.") are retained by
Louis, D'Amato in "the summer of 1993," and Wollersheim doesn't even
create the corporation until 21 June 1993 (see). Furthermore, a
Memorandum Order by Judge Brinkema of 28 November 1995 in RTC v. Lerma
et al., states: "On April 14, 1993, Fishman filed in the open court file
what has come to be known as the Fishman Affidavit, to which were
attached 69 pages of...Advanced Technology works, specifically levels
OT-I through OT-VII documents." How, then, does Wollersheim--not yet
with even a legal foundation or justification for any involvement at
all--come into possession of a "copy" of this "Fishman Affidavit" that
is dated a full week prior to the date that a United States District
Court judge says it was "filed in open court"? Whatever the answer to
these thorny questions, the filing of the "Fishman Affidavit" leads
ultimately--directly or indirectly--to Advanced Technology materials
being published on the internet, and to the subsequent highly-publicised
intellectual property litigation, including allegations of works having
passed into the public domain. It should be noted, as well, that CSI
finally drops all claims against Fishman and Geertz with prejudice (see
entry for 22 February 1994). Ultimately, then, the only outcome of the
lawsuit (other than obscene attorney fees) was the fact of these works
passing into many hands, leading to precedent-setting litigation in
regard to many aspects of the trade secret and coypright status of L.
Ron Hubbard's intellectual property, and to claims of fraud surrounding
the copyrights attached thereto--with all the possible consequences.]

1 October 1993
The Commissioner of Internal Revenue Service enters into a secret
agreement with agents of Church of Spiritual Technology (CST) and other
Scientology-related entities and individuals. As part of the secret
agreement, the single corporation known as "Church of Scientology
International," per se, pays Internal Revenue Service $12,500,000.00 US.
In the secret agreement, CST is granted tax exemption, and Norman F.
Starkey, an individual, as Trustee of Author's Family Trust B, is
effectively ordered by Commissioner of Internal Revenue Service to
transfer "substantially all of the corpus and income in Author's Family
Trust B, including all the shares of Author Services, Inc. ('ASI')...to
the Church of Spiritual Technology ('CST') without consideration." The
Commissioner also creates a secret "Church Tax Compliance Committee,"
and David Miscavige is appointed to be its Chairman.
SOURCE: Copy of the formerly-secret Closing Agreement published by the
Wall Street Journal.

Oh! Oh! Oh! See, Robbie! Get your little library pad and stubby pencil,
and let's do some *math*! Remember that Norman F. Starkey, with his
attorney, Sherman Lenske, had valued the "copyright and trademark
materials"--which we know *now* are all owned by CST--at *exactly*
$25,000,000.00. Right. Now divide that by "2" and tell me what you get.
Right! It's $12,500,000.00! Isn't that a *fun* coincidence?! And see on
your little pad where you wrote down the $12,318,602.00 that Norman F.
Starkey--with his attorney, Sherman Lenske--"donated" from "the Estate"
to CSI back in 1988? Geez, do you think interest on it would have pushed
it up to $12,500,000.00 by 1 October 1993? Isn't it an *interesting*
coincidence that IRS decided arbitrarily to settle ALLLLLLL tax issues
by having CSI--the recipient of the $12,318,602.00 from Starkey and
Lenske--pay *exactly* $12,500,000.00? I mean, it's *almost* like the
Estate splitting the assessed value of the copyrights and trademarks
with IRS--and CSI sort of just standing there passing the money along,
going, "Uh, unh-hunh. Unh-hunh" as just a dumb, ignorant money-donkey.
Wow! <Tch!> Of course, *I* realize that it's not the way it looks; that
it's just, like, one of those *amazing* little coincidences that turn up
in life! Gosh, I just *love* little coincidences like this. Isn't this
*fun*! Let's see what *other* coincidences we can find!

1 c. October 1993
Internal Revenue Service begins sending out a booklet using and
referencing intellectual property that has now been irrevocably
committed to CST. The booklet is called "A Description of the
Scientology Religion." In it, "the Scientology religion" is defined as
being "based...upon L. Ron Hubbard's research, writings and recorded
lectures." [NOTE: This clever and covert re-definition of terms creates
a legal entity entirely seperate from "Scientology," per se.
Scientology, per se, IS "L. Ron Hubbard's research, writing and recorded
lectures"--not merely "based upon" those works. However, this new
IRS/CST-defined class of materials--"the Scientology religion"--as
defined, can include all manner of derivative works, alterations, and
compilations. Attorneys for various Scientology-related entities are
very careful to refer to "the Scientology religion" where appropriate,
and to ensure that court-filed papers use that term where appropriate.]

Robert Vaughn Young has been retained as a paid "consulting expert" for
Graham Berry in the Fishman-Geertz case. He writes a declaration that
states that he is "an expert of Scientology policies." Young goes on to
cite numerous policies, mostly on the subject of "Fair Game"--but never
mentions anything at all about "many of Hubbard's works" having "gone
public domain," even though he has ostensibly known about such a
circumstance, and an alleged resultant "massive fraud," since 1983.

In response to a discovery demand in the CSI v. Fishman-Geertz case, the
Church of Scientology International turns over to the law firm Lewis,
D'Amato approximately 2,094 pages of records reflecting Church of
Scientology International's Application for Recognition of Tax Exemption
under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) and associated records.
[NOTE: Later, in sworn court testimony, Larry Wollersheim will admit
that he and F.A.C.T.Net are in possession of "a copy of a 14,000 page
Scientology application to the IRS" that Wollersheim claims was received
from Louis, D'Amato--nearly 12,000 more pages of "IRS application" than
Berry says were received by Louis, D'Amato. Wollersheim will say that
the 14,000 page application to the IRS was scanned and put onto
approximately 10 CDs that he has made and distributed to individuals,
but will not reveal the location of the CDs or the identities of the
individuals who have them.]

Norman F. Starkey transfers all right and title in all Hubbard
copyrights (and recently-created derivative "Scientology religion" works
as well, over 7,000 in all) to CST--where Sherman Lenske is a Special
Director--as ordered by Commissioner of IRS in the secret IRS Closing
Agreement of 1 October 1993. On the same date, Starkey signs an
"Assignment and Assumption" agreement with CST that has been constructed
by Sherman Lenske. In it, CST assumes ownership of all the "corpus and
income of Author's Family Trust B," and affirms the 17 September 1987
LICENSE to RTC for the use of the Advanced Technology (OT Levels, etc.)
with the obligation for RTC to "enforce all the copyrights in these
works." In an agreement of the same date, CST also assumes and affirms
the 1 October 1991 "Literary Agreement" with BPI, which carries a
similar obligation for BPI to "enforce the copyrights." [NOTE: There is
little doubt that both the RTC License and the "Literary Agreement" with
BPI were crafted by Sherman Lenske, while acting as attorney for Starkey
in his dual roles as Executor and Trustee.] Finally, on this same date,
Norman F. Starkey also transfers to CST the "Entire Interest and the
Goodwill" in the following five trademarks:

Serial No.  Reg. No.  Mark
----------  -------   ---------------------------------------
73-588214   1442039   .......... [an image of a hand holding Earth]

Of particular interest is the "Correspondence Address" listed for this
transfer of intellectual property between Starkey and CST. It is: Thomas
Small of Small, Larkin & Kidde, 10940 Wilshire Boulevard, 18th Floor,
Los Angeles, California 90024. [NOTE: Within little over a year from
Small's proven connection to this transfer of intellectual property from
Norman F. Starkey to CST, Thomas Small--purportedly just representing
RTC--will be the point man for the instigation of the sensationalistic
raid on Dennis Erlich and the ensuing intellectual property litigation.
His firm of Small, Larkin & Kidde also houses Helena Kobrin, who will
bring enormous infamous publicity to bear on the coming intellectual
property wars that they instigate--supposedly on behalf of RTC.]

1 c. December c. 1993
Someone at Lewis, D'Amato (where IRS operative Scott Mayer is a
paralegal in the Fishman-Geertz litigation) provides Larry Wollersheim
with, "among other things," two [or three, according to a later Graham
Berry declaration] "media CD's" containing over 8,000 copies of news
articles and "other documents" that allegedly have been "scanned onto
those disks from documents produced in discovery and obtained from the
extensive Scientology library belonging to...Steven Fishman." The
contents of the "media CD's" are loaded onto the F.A.C.T.Net hard drives
immediately upon receipt "in late 1993 or early 1994." Wollersheim also
receives some 40,000 to 60,000 pages of documents. [NOTE: The
Organization Executive Course Volumes ("green voumes") and the "HCO B"
Volumes ("red volumes"), consiting of all of the bulletins and policies
written by and for Hubbard, are believed to have been included in this
collection of electronic and hardcopy documents--if not the infamous
"Fishman Affidavit" itself. But so much self-contradictory, vague,
non-specific, and obfuscatory testimony and inuendo about the contents
of the "media CDs" and documents are entered into later legal
proceedings--mostly by Wollersheim and Graham Berry--that no certain
resolution is ever attained. What IS certain is that
Wollersheim/F.A.C.T.Net's undisputed possession of both the "Fishman
Affidavit" (with OT Levels attachments)--in various forms--AND
undisputed possession of the "red and green volumes"--HOWEVER AND
WHENEVER THEY OBTAINED THEM--is what leads ultimately to the raid on
Arnie Lerma, Larry Wollersheim, Bob Penny, and F.A.C.T.Net, and to the
subsequent litigation with those parties over the copyrights--which,
itself, leads to all the subsequent court-filed allegations by these
parties and their hired experts regarding certain materials having "gone
into the public domain."]

An Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation is filed for F.A.C.T.Net,

of assets upon dissolution: "Upon dissolution of the corporation, assets
shall be distributed equally to Cult Awareness Network (2421 W. Pratt
St., Suite 1173, Chicago, Illinois 60021) and to American Family
Foundation (P. 0. Box 336, Weston, Massachusetts) for one or more exempt
purposes within the meaning of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue
Code (or the corresponding section of any future federal tax code),
provided each of such organizations qualifies for tax-exempt status
under such section at the time of dissolution of the corporation. In the
event only one of the Cult Awareness Network or the American Family
Foundation qualifies as an organization described in section 501(c)(3)
of the Internal Revenue Code (or the corresponding section of any future
federal tax code) at the time of the dissolution of the corporation, the
assets shall be distributed to the one such organization that continues
to qualify under such section. In the event neither of the Cult
Awareness Network nor the American Family Foundation qualifies as an
organization described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code
(or the corresponding section of any future federal tax code) at the
time of dissolution of the corporation, the assets shall be distributed
to one or more organizations organized and operated exclusively for one
or more exempt purposes, within the meaning of section 501(c)(3) of the
Internal Revenue Code (or corresponding section of any future federal
tax code), that are similar to such exempt purposes of the Cult
Awareness Network and the American Family Foundation. Any such assets
not so disposed of shall be disposed of by a Court of Competent
Jurisdiction of the county in which the principal office of the
corporation is then located, exclusively for such purposes or to such
organization or organizations, as said Court shall determine, which are
organized and operated exclusively for such purposes." An added Tenth

Holy *Moley*, Robbie! Wow! That Larry Wollersheim sure seems to have
been *up* on the Internal Revenue Code, huh? I never knew the boy was
that *smart*. Did *you*? 'Cause, he didn't have tax attorneys helping
him... Did he? Rrrrrrrobbie, you little sweetie; are you being sullen
with me? Wanna' Hershey's Kisses? They go *great* with Peppermint
Schnapps! Why don't you let me just slip one of these little pointy
mounds into that sulky widdle mouth of yours... MmmmmMMMmmm!

Ohhhhhhh, Rrrrrrobbie, we have to *stop* for a minute. I feel like I've
been *spinning* around in my office chair again! Help me out, darling
Rob! Okay, we've only gotten up to early 1994, and here we have Larry
Wollersheim and F.A.C.T.Net connected to attorney Graham Berry connected
to Steven Fishman connected to F.A.C.T.Net President Gerry Armstrong
connected to Robert Vaughn Young (who succeeded Gerry Armstrong in
charge of the Hubbard archives and so used to meet with Sherman Lenske,
and supposedly knows allll about a big copyright fraud going on in the
church, but, like, *he* ain't telling!) connected to Stacy Young--who
was the *Org Officer* over *all* of Scientology when former Assistant to
Commissioner of IRS Meade Emory set up CST (with Sherman Lenske and
Thomas Small)--and they are *all* connected to former Commissioner of
IRS Senior Counsel consultant Scott Mayer, and *all* of them are
connected to Priscilla Coates and attorney Daniel Leipold of CAN, who
are close, close friends with Dennis Erlich. And Larry Wollersheim and
Gerry Armstrong have set up this corporation to "collect and
electronically publish documents" right at the time when *somebody* put
the OT levels into a public record, and then Larry and Gerry have
dedicated *all* the assets of the corporation to CAN and AFF--which is,
like, *run* by psychiatrists, including CIA psychiatrist Jolly West (who
was involved with Hal Puthoff and Ingo Swann in the CIA-sponsored remote
viewing program using copyrighted Scientology texts)? SheeEEEEEEEEEeesh!
Oh, and let's *please* not forget Shermy-Wormy Lenske's little
sock-puppets--Norman Starkey and Mr. Doofus Vorm--all busy doing
*something* in the back of the shed with their "Media Storage." And,
*heck*! The *real* show hasn't even *started*! This is just all
backstage. The *curtain* hasn't even come up yet on the *big* show!

Do I have this right so far? Am I leaving anybody out? Ohhh, never mind.
It's making my *head* hurt! And I have *got* to get out of these hose.
I'm going to slip behind that bookcase and slip out of them, okay? Don't
read ahead, 'kay? Wait for me to get back, 'kay? Promise? MmWah! You're
such a doll.

    Oh! And don't bogart the schnapps, sweetie.

    And *don't* backwash!

    And *don't* *look*!
