The Kinetic Condition

Reference: A Critique of Scientology Philosophy

From Scientology 8-8008, section THETA-MEST THEORY:

In Scientology, the static is represented by the mathematical symbol theta; the kinetic is called MEST… It is now considered that the origin of MEST lies with theta itself, and that MEST, as we know the physical universe, is a product of theta… Here we have the static of space acting against the kinetic of possession to produce action in the field of thought, emotion or effort, the various categories of doingness.

The truth is that static transforms into kinetic the moment it is disturbed. Scientology tries to explain the source of this disturbance by assigning unlimited spiritual capabilities to the static. By associating static with “spiritual” and kinetic with “physical”, Scientology introduces considerable confusion.

Scientology Filter #4: It is an arbitrary assumption in Scientology that static is entirely spiritual and kinetic is entirely physical.

The static is space in the physical dimension, but awareness in the spiritual dimension. But the static condition is never absolute. It contains the seed of disturbance.

In the physical dimension the disturbance in space grows and diminishes producing motion. This disturbance in space implies the presence of time. Without time there can be no disturbance in space.

POSTULATE 7: Time lies within space as the seed of disturbance.

In the spiritual dimension the disturbance in awareness grows and diminishes producing emotion.  This disturbance in awareness implies the presence of desire. Without desire there can be no disturbance in awareness.

POSTULATE 8: Desire lies within awareness as the seed of disturbance.

This leads immediately to the following corollary.

COROLLARY 8: The physical concept of time extends into metaphysics as the concept of desire.

Space and time together appear as motion. Similarly, awareness and desire together appear as emotion. We may therefore say,

COROLLARY 9: The physical concept of motion extends into metaphysics as the concept of emotion.

.

In physical dimension the spectrum of motion shows that space, when disturbed, transforms into energy; and when disturbed further, condenses into matter. This whole spectrum of space-energy-matter can be seen in the structure of an atom. The nucleus of an atom is enveloped in energy, which is surrounded by space.

POSTULATE 9: Space, when disturbed, transforms into energy.

POSTULATE 10: Energy, when disturbed further, condenses into matter.

Similarly, in spiritual dimension a spectrum of emotion shows that awareness, when disturbed, transforms into consciousness; and when disturbed further, condenses into identity. This whole spectrum of awareness-consciousness-identity may be seen in the structure of human form.

POSTULATE 11: Awareness, when disturbed, transforms into consciousness.

POSTULATE 12: Consciousness, when disturbed further, condenses into identity.

This leads immediately to the following conclusions.

COROLLARY 10: The physical concept of energy extends into metaphysics as the concept of consciousness.

COROLLARY 11: The physical concept of matter extends into metaphysics as the concept of identity.

.

Motion and emotion go hand in hand. There cannot be any emotion without motion. This leads to the following corollary.

COROLLARY 12: There can be no awareness without space, no desire without time, no consciousness without energy, and no identity without matter.

The physical form is made up of space, energy and matter. Space includes energy, which includes matter.

COROLLARY 13: The physical form may be visualized as a core of matter, enveloped in energy and surrounded by space.

Similarly, the spiritual form is made up of awareness, consciousness and identity. Awareness includes consciousness, which includes identity.

COROLLARY 14: The spiritual form may be visualized as a core of identity, enveloped in consciousness and surrounded by awareness.

An inanimate object, such as diamond, obviously has a physical form. But it may be considered to have a fixed spiritual form too. The spiritual form of diamond consists of the core identity of diamond, which is enveloped in “consciousness” of properties, and surrounded by “awareness” of value.

The postulates above may be summarized as follows.

Corollary 15: The kinetic condition in the physical dimension is displayed as MEST (Matter, energy, space and time) .

Corollary 16: The kinetic condition in the spiritual dimension is displayed as ICAD (Identity, consciousness, awareness and desire) .

The concept of Theta in Scientology should be expanded to ICAD. The Theta-MEST theory of Scientology should be presented as “ICAD-MEST Theory”.
