super power building






The Super Power Building is the Church of Scientology's largest property in Clearwater, Florida. It is also the city's largest commercial building. From 1998 to 2011 its construction has cost some 50 million dollars after repeated redesigns of the interior. "According to the building plans, the Super Power Building will feature a grand lobby lined with sculptures depicting aspects of Scientology; theaters for training and introductory films; a museum honoring the Sea Org; and a separate museum honoring Scientology's founder, L. Ron Hubbard. The sixth floor will house an indoor running track for Scientologists undergoing the controversial Purification Rundown detoxification program. The purpose of the Super Power Building has been stated as providing a dedicated center for delivering the Super Power Rundown, a high-level Scientology training course that has not yet been released. The Super Power Rundown was described by Scientology's founder, and science fiction writer, L. Ron Hubbard, as:

"A super fantastic, but confidential series of rundowns that can be done on anybody whether Dn [Dianetics] Clear or not that puts the person into fantastic shape unleashing Super Power of a thetan. This means that puts Scientologists into a new realm of ability enabling them to create a new world. It puts world Clearing within reach of the future. This is a parallel rundown to Power in Saint Hill which is taken by the Dn Clear. It consists of 12 separate high power rundowns which are brand new and enter realms of the tech never before approached. Power is still very much in use on the Grade Chart but is for those who didn't go Clear on Dn."

"After numerous setbacks and extensive fundraising, the complex, which the church calls the “Flag Mecca,” is set to finally open within the year, with the expressed purpose of instilling and fostering superhuman abilities in members using sleek retro-futuristic machines encoded with NASA technology, including a time machine, an anti-gravity simulator and an “endocrine states” capsule"
