Hubbard is considered the revealer of a cosmic history many billions of years old. In the words of Philip Jenkins, "Scientology offers an unabashedly Gnostic mythology of sleep, forgetting, and reawakening. Believers are taught to return to the vastly spiritual state they once enjoyed, but lost when that original being [thetan] was trapped in the deceptions of MEST (Matter, Energy, Space, Time)."
