Hi Terrence,

Welcome to a very quiet list. I too played around with various 
approaches until finding TROM. I remain interested in various 
spiritualologies :) and would like to know more about floatation 
tanks.  What I surmise is that external noise is reduced and that one 
thereby feels separated from the world.  I can only assume that "mind 
chatter" continues in the tank. :)

Many on first reading TROM - read it through other filters and get 
confused. This is usually due to added complexities which they 
assimilated from other approaches.

At some point I hope to properly summarize the differences between 
Scientology and TROM.

Dennis developed TROM using Scientology basics. B U T - there are 
major differences:

In TROM one avoids "The long night of the soul" and one eventually 
gets to see it as just another trap.

TROM creates NO "hidden influences" which most other "isms" and/or 
"ologies set up to address.

TROM doesn't use "recall" processes and does not expand "Time track" 
concepts in the mind.  Therefore Ogger's, Hubbards or even Buddha's 
"time track" although entertaining doesn't particularly interest or 
appeal to TROMMER's.

Oh yes! and you will also discover that you don't have to free 
everyone's minds to resolve your own. :)

I hope this partially answers your question of whether you should 
study TROM carefully.  If you do - you may find it the best "false 
data stripping"  you have ever done.
