Once upon a time there was a thetan, and he was a happy little thetan and the world was a simple thing. It was all very, very simple.
And then one day somebody told him he was simple.
And ever since that time he has been trying to prove that he is not.
And that is the history of the Universe, the Human Race, the Fifth Invaders, the Fourth Invaders, the 31/2 Invaders, the people on Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, Arcturus, the Markab Galaxy, the Markab System, the Psi Galaxy, Galaxy 82 — I don’t care where you look — that’s the story.
Only it’s too simple a story, much too simple a story, because a thetan would have to admit he was simple if he understood it.
