Reference: The Dianetic Axioms

.

L. Ron Hubbard found that man is obeying very definite laws and rules which could be set forward in axioms. The very first and most fundamental of these is: The dynamic principle of existence is survive. That is the basic axiom of Dianetics.

The original Dianetic axioms are referenced below in black.

In color are comments and proposed revisions of these axioms from the viewpoint of Buddha’s mindfulness. From this viewpoint the dynamic principle of this universe is to evolve. Nothing survives eternally.

DIANETICS AXIOMS

DN AXIOM 16: The basic food of any organism consists of light and chemicals.
Organisms can exist only as higher levels of complexities because lower levels of converters exist.
THETA evolves organisms from lower to higher forms and supports them by the existence of lower converter forms.

DN AXIOM 16 (proposed): Life organisms form a food chain to sustain higher level organisms. The lowest level organism evolves from light.

.

DN AXIOM 17: THETA, via LAMBDA, effects an evolution of MEST.
In this we have the waste products of organisms on the one hand as those very complex chemicals which bacteria make and, on the other hand, we have the physical face of the Earth being changed by animals and men, such changes as grass holding mountains from eroding or roots causing boulders to break, buildings being built and rivers being dammed. There is obviously an evolution in MEST in progress under the incursion of THETA.

DN AXIOM 17 (proposed): Life organisms bring about an evolution of the physical environment on a large scale.

.

DN AXIOM 18: LAMBDA, even within a species, varies in its endowment of THETA.

THETA is simply the static viewpoint. The variable is an organism’s capacity to evolve.

DN AXIOM 18 (proposed): Life organisms, even within a species, vary in their capacity to evolve.

.

DN AXIOM 19: The effort of LAMBDA is toward survival. The goal of LAMBDA is survival. The penalty of failure to advance toward that goal is to succumb.
DEFINITION: Persistence is the ability to exert continuance of effort toward survival goals.

This is a universe of change. A form appears, survives for some time, and then disappears. No form survives forever. Therefore, the natural goal in this universe is evolution. As forms evolve they survive better.

DN AXIOM 19 (proposed): Continued survival of life organisms depends upon their ability to evolve; the penalty of failure is extinction.

.

DN AXIOM 20: LAMBDA creates, conserves, maintains, requires, destroys, changes, occupies, groups and disperses MEST.
LAMBDA survives by animating and mobilizing or destroying matter and energy in space and time.

DN AXIOM 20 (proposed): Life organisms evolve by themselves also as they evolve their environment.

.

DN AXIOM 21: LAMBDA is dependent upon optimum motion. Motion which is too swift and motion which is too slow are equally contra survival.

Life organism must maintain a harmonious rate of progression in following the laws of nature. Sudden shift in motion, such as, the experience of shocks, can hurt the progression of life organisms.

DN AXIOM 21 (proposed): Sudden shift in motion, as in shocks, generates disharmony, and is destructive to life organisms.

.

DN AXIOM 22: THETA and thought are similar orders of static.

THETA is the static viewpoint. As THETA views chaos thought is generated. By resolving itself, thought converts chaos into order. Energy thus evolves. 

DN AXIOM 22 (proposed): Thought originates and dissolves to bring about the change needed for evolution.

.

DN AXIOM 23: All thought is concerned with motion.

Thought results from chaotic motion. The chaotic motion presents an anomaly (disharmony, discontinuity or inconsistency). It is in the nature of thought to dissolve itself by resolving that anomaly.

DN AXIOM 23 (proposed): All thought is concerned with dissolving itself by resolving anomalies.

.

DN AXIOM 24: The establishment of an optimum motion is a basic goal of reason.

DEFINITION: LAMBDA is a chemical heat engine existing in space and time motivated by the life static and directed by thought.

The native impulse of the life organism is to evolve by bringing lasting order in its environment. Thus the thought generated in the organism establishes harmony, continuity and consistency in the environment to resolve that disorder. This is reason in action.

DN AXIOM 24 (proposed): The basic goal of reason is to establish harmony, continuity and consistency.

.

DN AXIOM 25: The basic purpose of reason is the calculation or estimation of effort.

The thought must estimate the effort necessary to establish harmony, continuity and consistency. This is what the thought engages in all the time.

DN AXIOM 25 (proposed): The basic purpose of reason is the calculation or estimation of the effort.

.

DN AXIOM 26: Thought is accomplished by THETA FACSIMILES of physical universe, entities or actions.

Life organisms maintain a mental matrix in which all perceptions from the environment (THETA FACSIMILES) are assimilated. The matrix consists of multi-dimensional associations. Thoughts are generated when perceptions cannot be assimilated due to anomalies (disharmonies, discontinuities and inconsistencies). The goal of these thoughts is accomplished when the anomalies are resolved.

DN AXIOM 26 (proposed): Thought is accomplished with the resolution of anomalies in the perceptions from the environment.

.

DN AXIOM 27: THETA is satisfied only with harmonious action or optimum motion and rejects or destroys action or motion above or below its tolerance band.

Evolution in this universe requires eliminating all sudden shifts in motion (shocks) and establishing harmonious action or optimum motion. 

DN AXIOM 27 (proposed): Evolutionary progress requires the elimination of shocks and the establishment of optimum motion.

.

DN AXIOM 28: The mind is concerned wholly with the estimation of effort.

DEFINITION: Mind is the THETA command post of any organism or organisms.

The reason is applied through the mind of the life organism. Therefore, mind may be regarded as the command post of the life organism which is concerned wholly with the estimation of effort.

DN AXIOM 28 (proposed): The mind is the command post of the organism, which is concerned wholly with the estimation of effort.

.

DN AXIOM 29: The basic errors of reason are failure to differentiate amongst matter, energy, space and time.

The reason estimates the effort required to resolve anomalies. The basic errors of reason would be a failure to recognize disharmonies, discontinuities and inconsistencies that generate anomalies in perceptions.

DN AXIOM 29 (proposed): The basic errors of reason are failure to recognize discontinuities, disharmonies and inconsistencies in perceptions.

.

DN AXIOM 30: Rightness is proper calculation of effort.

That which resolves anomalies by correctly recognizing the discontinuities, disharmonies and inconsistencies, is the right effort. Estimation of such an effort constitutes rightness.

DN AXIOM 30 (proposed): Rightness is the calculation of effort required to resolve an anomaly.

.

The KHTK View

This is a universe of change. A form appears, survives for some time, and then disappears. No form survives for ever. Therefore, the natural goal in this universe is evolution and not survival.

The effort of life organisms is toward evolution. The goal of life organisms is evolution. The penalty of failure to evolve is extinction.

If mankind fails to evolve it will become extinct.
