*** For those non Scientologists reading this poem, The Basics refers to a set of basic books written by, or from the works of, L. Ron Hubbard about the philosophy of Scientology and their application. The Lectures are a series of recorded talks given by Ron Hubbard which elaborate and amplify the basic books. The R&D stands for Research & Discovery which are a series of books that are are a running record of just that. And Ron, of course, is the name of the founder. ***

From beneath the bottom of the bottomless abyss,

below even that, to the firm cliff's edge above,  

where light shines without shadow.  So the Basic Books

soar above the darkness, the lostness and the nightmares of yore.

.

From beneath the bottom of the bottomless abyss,

below even that, to the firm cliff's edge above,

where light shines without shadow.  Further, to the waving flags

at the peaks of the highest mountain tops

and the voices of those who have climbed, cheering and calling

from above.  So rise the Lectures with their Basic Books.

.

From beneath the bottom of the bottomless abyss,

below even that, to the firm cliff's edge above,  

where light shines without shadow.  Further, to the waving flags

at the peaks of Highest Mountain

and the voices of those who have climbed, cheering and calling

from above.  Still further, and unbelievably beyond,

where infinity begins to stretch into constellations

of your own creation.  Where hyperbole will remain forever

an understatement.  So advance the R&D, the Basic Books,

and the voice and the visions of Ron.

.

See you there.
