The Factor # 12 (old)

Universal Objectivity
Reference: The Factors

Here is a detailed review of Factors # 12 from the book Scientology 8-8008.

FACTOR # 12: The dimension point can be moved by the viewpoint, for the viewpoint, in addition to creative ability and consideration, possesses volition and potential independence of action; and the viewpoint, viewing dimension points, can change in relation to its own or other dimension points or viewpoints. Thus comes about all the fundamentals there are to motion.

The creative ability, consideration, volition and potential independence of action are expressions of cause and effect inherent present in the overall consciousness and also in the narrower viewpoints. Just like cause and effect, the viewpoints and dimension points also come about in pairs. Neither exists without the other.

Viewpoints and dimension point occur in pairs with one-on-one correspondence.

The viewpoints are narrow because they are limiting their frame of reference to their respective dimension points. Individual dimension points are a small part of the universal context. This is the case by default. It does not have to be this way. A viewpoint may become enlarged as it starts to include other dimension points in its context.

Here we have the real meaning of exteriorization as it involves broadening of the viewpoint. This is done as follows.

  • Broaden the context by including other dimension points.
  • Broaden the viewpoint by resolving resulting inconsistencies.

Scientology talks about agreement among viewpoints. Such agreement does not broaden the viewpoints because making agreement is more like compromising. True broadening comes from completely resolving what viewpoints see as inconsistent. As viewpoints broaden they come closer to each other.

Viewpoints broaden as the inconsistencies of larger context are resolved.

Inconsistencies come about because viewpoints have fixed attention on their respective dimension points even when those dimension points are now part of a larger context. One looks at the areas of fixed attention more closely. One then resolves inconsistencies in those areas by free association and creative visualization to fill gaps.

Inconsistencies are resolved by resolving fixed attention.

Viewpoints become more objective with the broadening of context.  As the context broadens to the size of the whole universe, the viewpoint broadens to become whole consciousness. This is ultimate objectivity.

Ultimate objectivity is viewing in universal context with no unresolved inconsistencies.

Therefore, we may revise Factor 12 as follows.

FACTOR # 12: The objective viewpoint of consciousness may be restored by letting narrow subjective viewpoints consider all forms in a universal context and resolve any resulting inconsistencies.
