Chapter 2

It is the the body-mind system that identifies a human being. Therefore, the human-mind system serves as the identity of an individual. It is natural to have and identity. Having an identity is not a flaw.

Jivātman is the awareness associated with an individual identity.

Ātman is the general awareness associated with the universe.

Paramātman is the supreme state of ātman.

Man spearheads the evolution in this universe. Man sees God (paramātma) as the state he wants to evolve to. But, among man, there is delusion. Those who are deluded imagine God to be some identity in the sky that commands them. But that is an imaginary identity within them.


DIANETICS: Some Types of Engrams

These are some comments on the chapter “Some Types of Engrams” from DIANETICS: THE MODERN SCIENCE OF MENTAL HEALTH.


Comments on
Some Types of Engrams

Engrams are unassimilated impressions, which appear as facsimiles of some incident that happened to the person. There are four types of facsimiles: (a) Contra-survival, (b) Pro-survival, (c) Sympathy, and (d) Painful emotion. 

The contra-survival facsimile lies across the dynamics; it has no alignment with purpose, and it is antagonistic in nature. The command of the facsimile is more important than the action people take in it. These commands are hypnotic. In therapy this facsimile is somewhat drained of power just by being touched with the returned awareness.

The pro-survival facsimile pretends to assist survival of the person by its content. It is more difficult to access. It contains allies who defended the person’s existence in moments when the person conceived that his existence was under attack. 

The sympathy facsimile contains the effort of the parent or guardian to be kind to a child who is severely hurt. The aberrative aspect of this facsimile is a “conviction” that if the ally were not around and if one were not on good terms with her, one would starve, die or suffer generally. This facsimile comes forward and stays chronic as a psychosomatic illness.

The painful emotion facsimile is caused by the shock of sudden loss such as the death of a loved one. It contains the death, departure or denial by an ally. It contains an emotional charge which, if it will not display itself, is elsewhere suppressed. A condition of such painful emotion is that it has early physically painful engrams upon which to append.

For examples of these facsimiles please read the chapter.


Substance, Inertia and Consistency

Combined into One Body, Mass, or Substance by Linnie Brown - mixed media  artwork | UGallery
Reference: A Logical Approach to Theoretical Physics

The following definition is missing in physics.

Matter is a substance so condensed that it has a center of mass. Less condensed substances, like electricity and light, have no center of mass, but they have consistency.

Consistency is a dimension of a substance that is actually the subject of Quantum mechanics. The size of the quantum is determined by the consistency of the substance. Quantum is the energy involved in subatomic interactions.

The nucleus of an atom has mass, but the substance around the nucleus has consistency but no mass. Consistency also has inertia just like mass. Therefore, the electromagnetic substance, such as light, has momentum even when it is not made up of atoms.

The “mass” of an electron is actually a measure of inertia in response to enforced motion. It is the result of electron having the highest consistency among electromagnetic substances.

NOTE (Sep 15, 2021):
I have revised the above to make the definitions of “substance,” “mass,” and “consistency” more clear. It also clarifies the definition of “quantum” as “the energy involved in subatomic interactions.” It also puts the definition of “inertia” in proper perspective.


Atman to Paramatman

The Nature of Reality: Ishwara-Brahman-Atman-Paramatman

Reference: Course on The Bhagavad Gita

The evolution of Atman to Paramatman seem to occur as follows:

  1. Before one can understand “self-awareness” and “self-regulation” the understanding of “self” is necessary.
  2. That “self” is made up of ATMAN and JIVATMAN.
  3. Jivatman requires Atman to exist.
  4. Atman does not require Jivatman to exist.
  5. Atman is neither born nor it dies.
  6. Jivatman suffers birth and death.
  7. Jivatman is subject to a life cycle, Atman is not.
  8. Atman energizes Jivatman and the life cycle.
  9. Jivatman is part of the life cycle.
  10. Atman is a constant from one life cycle to the next.
  11. The variables of a life cycle are: (a) Time, (b) Space, (c) Form, (d) Body, (e) Mental machinery, (f) The blue print of body-mind system, (g) the ‘I’
  12. The blue prints of body-mind system mix through genes and vary from one life cycle to the next.
  13. The ‘I’ evolves through the blue-prints of the body-mind system.
  14. The body-mind system has flaws in terms of fixations. These flaws appear as different I’s.
  15. As the fixations are removed, the I’s converge toward a STATIC VIEWPOINT.
  16. The current task of evolution is the resolution of fixations and the development of the static viewpoint.
  17. That static viewpoint has been visualized as the ‘I’ of the Bhagavad Gita.
  18. The ‘I’ of the Bhagavad Gita has become an expression of Atman as PARAMATMAN.
  19. This Paramatman is postulated across all life cycles, just like the speed of light is postulated across all inertial frames.
  20. This Parmatman is infinite. It is always out there yet to be achieved but never fully achieved.



Atman (Sanskrit) is translated as SELF.

Paramatman (Sanskrit) is translated as SUPREME SELF.

Jivatman (Sanskrit) may be translated as THE INDIVIDUAL SOUL.


The “Particle” Physics

Elementary particle - Wikipedia

The most confusing concept pertaining to particle physics is the concept of “particle” itself. We are familiar with mass particles. Such particles have a center of mass, and momentum. A mass particle reduces to an atom. The nucleus of an atom acts as the center of mass. The rest of the atom is configured around this nucleus.

When we get beyond the atom and look at electromagnetic radiation, we are dealing with a very different kind of substance. It has momentum but no center of mass. It has fluid-like properties. This “fluid,” when it flows, have wave-like characteristics. It is not a disturbance in some other medium, which we associate with waves in the material domain.

EM substance is very different from the material substance, which is made up of atoms.

The electromagnetic substance has consistency (a degree of density, firmness, viscosity, etc.) and also a fluid-like continuity. The quantum aspect of this EM substance comes from its interaction with material substance. Such interaction involves a precise energy based on the consistency of the EM substance.

The consistency of EM substance gives it momentum and the interaction with matter gives its the quantum property. But this substance does not have the center of mass around which to generate spatial particles. The EM substance is, therefore, continuous in space.

The most confusion, therefore, comes from the use of the word “particle” in Particle Physics. These are particles based on discrete energy interactions that vary according to the consistency of the EM substance. They are not particles based on discreteness in space, which is a characteristic of material substance only.

NOTE: Electrons have the highest consistency in the EM spectrum. There is a threshold of consistency above which we have material substance. Nucleon’s consistency is about 1836 times the consistency of electrons. It qualifies as material substance. Mass is associated with material substance. It has the property of “having a center” that identifies it as a “point particle”. Electrons are not material (or point) particles. The apparent “mass” of the electrons is essentially the manifestation of its inertia. Inertia is a property of consistency and not just that of mass.
