Time Track and Un-stacking of Mind

Reference: KHTK Mindfulness

The visible time-track of a human life starts from birth and moves forward through childhood, adolescence, youth, adulthood, old age and death.

When one is searching for the cause of some unwanted condition, one starts to look earlier and earlier on the time-track. Freud looked for reasons in early childhood. Hubbard looked for reasons in birth and also in the earlier pre-natal period in Dianetics. Today, scientists are looking for reasons in the Genetic Code.

Hubbard also went looking for reasons farther back in past lives in Scientology. He projected the time track backwards to trillions of years. Was he really discovering incidents in the life of a single individual that far back?

Bible does not believe in past lives. It believes in a sort of storage system identified as purgatory, heaven or hell for the spiritual elements of a person (soul). Hubbard changed the definition of soul from “spiritual elements of a person” to the “person” himself. He insisted that the soul is a single permanent unit which is the person (thetan), and this thetan moves from body to body.

The original eastern idea of reincarnation is very different. Just like there is the disintegration of body into molecules and reintegration of molecules into a new body. Similarly, there is disintegration of self into “spiritual elements” and reintegration of “spiritual elements” into a new self. Buddha never looked at self as a single permanent unit. Buddha talked about non-human reincarnations as well.

But Hubbard assumed that if a memory came from an earlier life, then it meant that the whole person (thetan) came from an earlier life. This supported Hubbard’s idea of a linear time track. But this idea has never worked in Dianetics, where the “basic-basic” was never found. This idea of a linear time track has only served to produce delusional states in Scientology.

The truth is that mind is a matrix of definitions and logics. The logics connect the definitions in multiple dimensions. Such connections are far from being linear.

An incident has many parts, and these parts have many definitions. These definitions are indexed with definitions in parts of other incidents. This situation is far from linear. Therefore, it is an error to treat an incident from one’s experience as an independent unit as assumed in the “earlier similar” methodology of Dianetics and Scientology.

The linear methodology of Dianetics and Scientology is therefore very limited. To address the multi-dimensional matrix structure of the mind one needs to apply the un-stacking methodology of mindfulness.
