Here is a detailed review of Factors # 25 to 30 from the book Scientology 8-8008.
Factor # 25: Thus comes about death.
If a viewpoint is unable to shift its frame of reference from a form then it also dies when the frame of reference perishes. The eternal frame of reference is the objectivity of the universal viewpoint. That viewpoint is eternal and it continues even when the personal viewpoint perishes with the body.
Factor # 25 (revised): Thus death of viewpoint comes about when the form perishes, but the objective viewpoint having universe as its frame of reference never dies.
Factor # 26: The manifestations of pleasure and pain, of thought, emotion and effort, of thinking, of sensation, of affinity, reality, communication, of behaviour and being are thus derived and the riddles of our universe are apparently contained and answered herein.
The problem of human condition derives from the fixations of viewpoints on perishable forms as their frame of reference. When such fixations are resolved the viewpoints broaden to become the universal objective viewpoint. The objective viewpoint is as eternal as the universe.
Factor # 26 (revised): The riddle of human condition of beingness resolves as the fixations on perishable forms are resolved, and the viewpoint broadens to become universal.
Factor # 27: There is beingness, but Man believes there is only becomingness.
The ultimate beingness is the objectivity of the universal viewpoint. But Man hankers after the personal viewpoint provided by the identity centered on the body.
Factor # 27 (revised): The ultimate beingness is attained by moving beyond the subjective viewpoint tied to the human body to arrive at the objectivity of the universal viewpoint.
Factor # 28: The resolution of any problem posed hereby is the establishment of viewpoints and dimension points, the betterment of condition and concourse amongst dimension points, and, thereby, viewpoints, and the remedy of abundance or scarcity in all things, pleasant or ugly, by the rehabilitation of the ability of the viewpoint to assume points of view, and create and uncreate, neglect, start, change and stop dimension points of any kind at the determinism of the viewpoint. Certainty in all three universes must be regained, for certainty, not data, is knowledge.
The resolution of human condition comes from letting the viewpoint unwind through all its fixations and widen its context. This is accomplished by practicing free association under the discipline of mindfulness (seeing things as they are).
Relative certainty comes from the objectivity reached through the resolution of all fixations, doubts and perplexities. Any certainty can always be improved as there is no absolute certainty.
Factor # 28 (revised): The resolution of any condition comes from viewing it in the universal context and resolving all fixations, doubts and perplexities. This is done through free association to align data, and visualization to fill the gaps under the discipline of mindfulness. Objectivity is attained through universal continuity, harmony and consistency.
Factor # 29: In the opinion of the viewpoint, any beingness, any thing, is better than no thing, any effect is better than no effect, any universe better than no universe, any particle better than no particle, but the particle of admiration is best of all.
There is no absolute nothingness. Universal beingness is always there without beginning or end. Associated with that beingness is the objective viewpoint. It is the fixation of the desire to become something that causes narrowness of the viewpoint and subjectivity. Admiration helps one fully appreciate the reality of what is there and keeps one’s viewpoint objective.
Factor # 29 (revised): Beingness is always there. Admiration helps one attain and maintain any beingness with complete objectivity.
Factor # 30: And above these things there might be speculation only. And below these things there is the playing of the game. But these things which are written here Man can experience and know. And some may care to teach these things and some may care to use them to assist those in distress and some may desire to employ them to make individuals and organizations more able and so give to Earth a culture of which we can be proud.
I have analyzed the Factors proposed by Hubbard with as much objectivity as I could muster. Hubbard’s pioneering work brought great improvement to prior understanding. This revision is an attempt to bring consistency to Hubbard’s materials with Vedas and Buddha’s work. The goal, of course, is to bring about greater understanding and better workability to the resolution of human condition.
Factor # 30 (revised): This revision of Hubbard’s pioneering work is an attempt to make it consistent with Vedas and Buddha’s work. It is hoped that this effort shall bring about better understanding and more workable techniques to bring resolution to the human condition.
Here is a detailed review of Factors # 22 to 24 from the book Scientology 8-8008.
Factor # 22: And there are universes.
There may be myriads of subjective universes per the viewpoints of the various structures; but there is only one objective universe represented by the overall beingness.
The viewpoint of the overall beingness is displayed in science, logic, mathematics, philosophy, etc. It has the viewpoint of seeing things as they are. All other viewpoints are limited by their individual structures and limited contexts. Thus the idea of multiverses is subjective.
Factor # 22 (revised): There may be many subjective universes; but there is only one objective universe.
Factor # 23: The universes, then, are three in number: the universe created by one viewpoint, the universe created by every other viewpoint, the universe created by the mutual action of viewpoints which is agreed to be upheld—the physical universe.
There are no physical and metaphysical universes that exist independently. The physical and metaphysical are two aspects of the same objective universe. Different “universes” are subjective because of the limited context of the viewpoints.
A common universe created out of agreement among viewpoints is still “subjective” in nature because of limited context. As the context broadens, all viewpoints converge to the same objective viewpoint because they see reality for what it is. No agreement is required.
Factor # 23 (revised): The viewpoints evolve from the universal field of beingness. They all converge toward the same objective viewpoint as their context broadens to become universal.
Factor # 24: And the viewpoints are never seen. And the viewpoints consider more and more that the dimension points are valuable. And the viewpoints try to become the anchor points and forget that they can create more points and space and forms. Thus comes about scarcity. And the dimension points can perish and so the viewpoints assume that they, too, can perish.
A viewpoint can be seen and understood in terms of the frame of reference it is using. An anchor point refers to a fixed frame of reference.
The viewpoint can change. For example, a person generally uses his body as his frame of reference from which to view. When studying astronomy he may change that frame of reference to the whole earth.
A person should be flexible in terms of his frame of reference. When the frame of reference, such as a body, perishes then the associated viewpoint also perishes.
Factor # 24 (revised): The viewpoints use dimension points as their frame of reference. A viewpoint fixated on its frame of reference perishes when the frame of reference perishes.
Here is a detailed review of Factors # 19 to 21 from the book Scientology 8-8008.
Factor # 19: And the viewpoint can never perish; but the form can perish.
Each form has its own viewpoint expressed as its essence of properties and capabilities. All forms are connected with each other within the system of the universe. Individual form and viewpoint are a small part of a system and they survive and perish together. But the overall system of the universe, its form and its viewpoint endure as long as time itself endures.
Factor # 19 (revised): Individual forms and viewpoints may perish, but the form and viewpoint of the overall universe can never perish.
Factor # 20: And the many viewpoints, interacting, become dependent upon one another’s forms and do not choose to distinguish completely the ownership of dimension points and so comes about a dependency upon the dimension points and upon the other viewpoints.
The individual forms and their respective viewpoints come about as the field of beingness condenses into structures. The overall beingness is now expressed as an interconnected matrix of individual forms and their viewpoints.
A viewpoint does not own some dimension point. The dimension point describes the outer form of beingness, whereas, the viewpoint describes its inner essence. The interconnection among the forms and viewpoints is natural, but confusion may come about, which could be difficult to sort out.
Factor # 20 (revised): There are relationships among all the individual forms and their viewpoints in the universe. However, confusion may come about among these relationships.
Factor # 21: From this comes a consistency of viewpoint of the interaction of dimension points and this, regulated, is TIME.
The overall beingness is eternal without beginning or end. Time accounts for the changes within the beingness. Such changes occur at variable frequencies while the beingness is evolving as a field. This gives time a variable aspect.
As the frequency of change becomes larger, the changes in frequency become less noticeable and beingness starts to condense to form discrete structures. As beingness becomes structured time acquires a fixed characteristic.
Factor # 21 (revised): As beingness becomes structured and acquires individual forms and viewpoints, TIME also acquires a fixed characteristic.
Here is a detailed review of Factors # 16 to 18 from the book Scientology 8-8008.
Factor # 16: The viewpoint can combine dimension points into forms and the forms can be simple or complex and can be at different distances from the viewpoints and so there can be combinations of form. And the forms are capable of motion and the viewpoints are capable of motion and so there can be motion of forms.
The elements combine by the free association of their natural properties to form complex compounds. In other words simple dimension points combine to form more complex dimension points. This happens by free association. No other agent, other than the natural properties, is involved.
The viewpoints are represented by the simple and complex identities of these elements and compounds. These identities are made up of the characteristic properties of elements and compounds.
The molecules of complex organic compounds, such as, the DNA molecule, act as molecular computers because they have enough electrons enveloping their nuclei to produce sequenced motion. This introduces self-animation to the identity of DNA molecules. Here we have the beginning of life as we see it.
Factor # 16 (revised): As dimension point evolves into complex forms, the viewpoint evolves into complex properties that bring about self-animation.
Factor # 17: And the opinion of the viewpoint regulates the consideration of the forms, their stillness or their motion, and these considerations consist of assignment of beauty or ugliness to the forms and these considerations alone are art.
Thus, evolution takes place from inanimate minerals to active plant life to animated animal life. The physical form and metaphysical essence develops accordingly and it reaches its pinnacle in the human identity. Art lies in the stillness or motion of these forms in infinite ways. It is the continuity and harmony of the motion involved that determines the beauty of forms.
Factor # 17 (revised): And evolution takes place from inanimate minerals to active plant life to animated animal life. Art studies their stillness or motion. Beauty lies in the continuity and harmony of their movement.
Factor # 18: It is the opinion of the viewpoints that some of these forms should endure. Thus there is survival.
The “opinion of the viewpoints” is actually the alignment of the form, according to their properties within the system of forms. It is the configuration of the forms, despite all complexity, and the continuity and harmony of their properties, which determines their endurance. The whole system of forms survives as one universe.
Factor # 18 (revised): It is the alignment and adjustment of the forms to the continuity and harmony of the whole system that determines their survival.
Here is a detailed review of Factors # 13 to 15 from the book Scientology 8-8008.
Factor # 13: The dimension points are each and every one, whether large or small, solid. And they are solid solely because the viewpoints say they are solid.
As dimension point condenses from energy field, its basic form reduces to an atom. The atom has a nucleus that is solid mass. The atom of elements has an enduring structure that can be arranged in still enduring structures as molecules of compounds.
Parallel to the above, the viewpoint also condenses from a field of emotions into structured entities. An entity has a nucleus that is a solid desire. The entities are the property of atoms that combine to form more complex identities of molecules.
Factor # 13 (revised): Beingness condenses into enduring structures, which we see as dimension points of atoms and molecules, and viewpoints of their corresponding identities.
Factor #14: Many dimension points combine into larger gases, fluids or solids. Thus there is matter. But the most valued point is admiration, and admiration is so strong its absence alone permits persistence.
The atoms combine into molecules. These molecules exist in gaseous, liquid or solid state at normal temperatures. The molecules combine further into various forms of matter. On the other hand, entities are the structured properties of atoms. These properties evolve into more complex properties of molecules. Thus we have varied identities of matter.
The complex structure of this universe, thus, has varied physical forms and properties that impart metaphysical identities to them. Admiration is viewing this complex universe objectively for what it is. It is a feeling that champions all other feelings.
Factor #14 (revised): The dimension point evolves into complex forms of matter having gaseous, liquid and solid states. The viewpoint evolves as their identities. Admiration is viewing this wonderfully complex universe objectively for what it is.
Factor #15: The dimension point can be different from other dimension points and thus can possess an individual quality. And many dimension points can possess a similar quality, and others can possess a similar quality unto themselves. Thus comes about the quality of classes of matter.
The elements have similarities and differences according to which they appear in different columns of the Periodic Table. These elements combine and evolve into a variety of matter that can be classified according to the similarities and differences among them.
Factor #15 (revised): The structural diversity of this universe may be arranged into classes.
