Tom Cruise 'has telepathic powers'

2012-07-11 15:28
Los Angeles - The Church Of Scientology believes it's most famous devotee Tom Cruise has telekinetic and telepathic powers, according to reports.

According to a 2006 investigation by Rolling Stone magazine, 50-year-old Tom had reached an advanced level of Scientology and was known as an "Operating Thetan" or an "OT".

Janet Reitman, the author of the report, explained that OTs "have total control over themselves and their environment".

Tom's involvement in the exclusive religion has been at the core of his recent split from Katie Holmes, 33, who filed for divorce from the Mission: Impossible star on 29 June.

The couple have reportedly been split over how to raise their six-year-old daughter Suri, with Tom reportedly keen to enrol her in an elite Scientology school.

Some bizarre details of the Scientology church's beliefs have emerged since news of the split broke, though much about the church and its practices are closely guarded.

Tom, who is believed to be at the advanced stage of OT VII, has practised the religion for 30 years, reports the Daily Mail, and has therefore reached an esoteric state of enlightenment after travelling what is known as the Bridge to Total Freedom.

"OTs can allegedly move inanimate objects with their minds, leave their bodies at will and telepathically communicate with, and control the behaviour of, both animals and human beings," writes Reitman.

"At the highest levels, they are allegedly liberated from the physical universe, to the point where they can psychically control what Scientologists call MEST: Matter, Energy, Space and Time."

Nancy Meny, who worked with celebrities at Scientology's Sea Organization, revealed to Radar Online that Tom was manipulated into joining the religion.

"I knew some of the people who kid-gloved him into becoming a member," she said. "Everything was orchestrated and orientated. Tom has a problem reading so they don’t have him doing the course on his own and paired him up one-on-one.

"The level of manipulation is unbelievable, it is like [Jim Carrey movie] The Truman Show."

Expensive gifts

Tom is also best friends with Scientology leader David Miscavige. A 2005 leaked memo from Marty Rathbun, a former high-ranking Scientologist who left the church in 2004,
revealed that the church showered Tom with expensive gifts.

One such gift was a luxury coach called Silver Screen. Tom allegedly demanded that it was fitted with a drawer to keep slippers in so people don't walk on the carpet with dirty shoes.

The memo states: "He (Cruise) requested that a space be figured out for placement of slippers in the front of Silver Screen as he doesn't want shoes on the carpet."

Tom also insisted that no-one other than his personal assistants enter the bus, and that Miscavige, referred to in the memo as Chairman of the Board (COB), should be the first person to enter the vehicle.

As well as the Silver Screen bus, Tom is also believed to have received a selection of personalised motorbikes, and an aircraft hanger complete with a luxurious office, from the church.

Tom and Katie finalised their divorce agreement on Monday in a confidential deal that prevented any personal or embarrassing details about the actor's life from being revealed. The couple also agreed to honour each other's beliefs over their daughter, who will remain in the primary care of her mother.

Katie has since rejoined the Catholic Church.

      Telepathic? More like telepathetic.

      roboman1 - 2012-07-12 14:10

      Stuart.Steedman, you of course know the Divine truth hey? You alone know what is true or not? Respect others, and allow them the freedom of their beliefs and ideologies. Live and let live

      tracey.baard - 2012-07-12 15:39

      it's not called telepathetic powers. it's called "surrounding yourself with brown-nosers."

      rbphiri - 2012-07-12 17:05

      The Church Of Scientology believes it's most famous devotee Tom Cruise has telekinetic and telepathic powers??? Hmmm didn't he see the divorce coming or was it Vision Impossible.

      Last time I went for a walk across Midmar I almost got hit by a speedboat!

    Telepathetic is more like it!

      LOL, I was going to type the exact same. :-)

      OT weet jy die man...

      sheda.habib - 2012-07-13 10:26

      My cousin claims the same telekinetic and telepathic powers,(he is also a scientologist). He refuses to let us test his powers until we join Scientology and reach the level of Thetan. What a joke ...does he think we are as OT brainwashed as he is.

  • mark.a.fysh - 2012-07-11 15:52

    Only when his brain missfired

    Hail Xenu NOT Funny story this I will be laughing for weeks, thanks News24.

  • marnus.lamprecht - 2012-07-11 16:00

    He got a bus and motorbikes as presents...means of transport...so why transport if you have telepathic abilities?

      lynn.alcock.9 - 2012-07-12 07:35

      Same question can be asked of how he didn't telepathically read Katie's mind re the divorce - sad man ...

      duane.loubser - 2012-07-13 12:49

      Because he doesn't have the "gift" of teleportation Marnus. To teleport is to move from 1 point to another. Being telepathic means to be able to communicate using your mind

      They must be quiet resourceful, until all the negative publicity stunts, jumping on Oprah's sofa's on international television comes to mind. A sad state of affairs when PR fails.

  • Neil - 2012-07-12 10:11

    This is too funny! How can grow-ups be so serious about a "religion" made up by a science fiction writer? It makes as much sense as me declaring Jar-Jar Binks as God, Princess Lea as the Virgin Mary and calling George Lucas Jesus. How can a god or gods (who are by definition, supreme, perfect, immortal, etc.) be invented by a mortal, dope-smoking, acid-popping hippy like L. Ron? PS. Scientology also makes about as much sense as the Greeks inventing their gods on Olympus, the Egyptians inventing their gods out of crocodiles, cats, and so on, the Jews wandering around the desert 5000 ago inventing their god, later Jews inventing Jesus and the Muslims inventing Mohamed 400 years after that based on the invention of Jesus. And so on and so on. Grow-up people. Man cannot create Gods. Man can only create ideas, sometimes pretty wild ones... and only fools believe.

  • hamish.drake1 - 2012-07-12 10:54

    If he has "total control over themselves and their environment", how come Katie got away? Was he in another universe at the time ?

  • alon.fisher.752 - 2012-07-12 11:15

    What's next people gonna worship Kermit the frog along with the rest of the muppet's? I usually respect all religions but this Scientology is effing ridiculous.

    Pretty soon he will make his own movie: The Cruisenator, and walk around in a pair of tights! We all need another superhero!

    Glad Katie got out of this one....BUT...she did know from the start what she was getting into. Surely she knew that if they are going to have children that Tom would want to raise their children the Scientology way? Love is blind I guess :)

  • fraser.gilchrist - 2012-07-12 14:18

    So if he can control people's minds, why can't he stop Katie from divorcing him and send the kid to scientology school?

  • pisciotta - 2012-07-12 14:50

    He is an embarrisment for those who put Hollywood actors on a pedestal without considering their true value to humanity. His fans cooperated in creating this anomaly.

  • dick.etheridge - 2012-07-12 15:18

    "...Tom had reached an advanced level of Scientology and was known as an "Operating Thetan" or an "OT"." Is the "OT" by any chance preceded by "IDI"

    Why is believing in MEST any more incredible/unbelievable/insane than believing in a man rising from the dead? And please don't use the old "coz the bible says so" argument! The bible was written by people same as this scientology' crap.

  • trevor.leon.5 - 2012-07-12 16:49

    did anyone catch southpark episode when they explain scientology? they seriously think they are descended from aliens! hello! people! the first clue should be that this is a so called religion started by a SCIENCE FICTION WRITER! wake up you poor feeble minded fools!WAKE UP!

    With all these powers why does he need a court order to see his daughter. Tom you should have been a comedian.

    Total control? Well, he missed the "control Katie and Suri part" and now his Master has caused another child to grow up fatherless. My goodness, this is just more proof that money doesn't buy IQ, or love. Like they say, you can buy ground, but not background. As for the rest, well Tommy my son, no big deal there, we have people in the occult that can do the same. Your practice is the same but called by another name.

  • andrejcarstens - 2012-07-13 09:16

    Does he know the terms of his divorce? "Tom has a problem reading so they don’t have him doing the course on his own and paired him up one-on-one." He move things with his mind but not read what is on his divorce settlement. How does he know they are telling him what is really on the papers lol!
