.

SYMBOLS:

THETA: The symbol for the LIFE STATIC

DELTA: The symbol for DISTURBANCE

MEST: (matter, energy, space and time)

ICAD: (identity, consciousness, awareness and desire)

LAMBDA: The symbol for living organisms

.

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 (revised): Life organisms evolve from light and chemicals.

Organisms form a food chain to sustain higher level organisms.

.

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 (revised): Living 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.

MEST provides the outer formation, and ICAD provides the inner essentials of LAMBDA. Both MEST and ICAD configurations are unique for organisms even within the same species.

DN AXIOM 18 (revised): Each life organism, even within a species, has its own unique capacity to change the environment.

.

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 and not survival. Evolution comes about as greater alignment takes place in terms of continuity, harmony and consistency.

DN AXIOM 19 (revised): The effort of LAMBDA is toward evolution. The goal of LAMBDA is evolution. The penalty of failure to evolve is extinction.

DEFINITION: Persistence is the ability to exert continuance of effort toward evolutionary goals.

.

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.

Hubbard is focused on the evolution of MEST, but there is also the evolution of ICAD.

DN AXIOM 20 (revised): LAMBDA evolves through the alignment of ICAD; and it aligns MEST in its 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.

Per axiom 14, a harmonious rate of progression is necessary for the evolution. LAMBA is dependent upon an optimum rate of change or motion.

DN AXIOM 21 (revised): LAMBDA is dependent upon an optimum rate of change. Rate that is too swift and rate that is too slow are equally destructive.

.

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

DN AXIOM 22 (revised): Thought brings about the change needed for evolution.

.

DN AXIOM 23: All thought is concerned with motion.

DN AXIOM 23 (revised): All thought is concerned with change.

.

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.

ICAD consists of the metaphysical elements that determine physical motion. Thought is the vector of ICAD, which directs this motion that is intended to bring alignment. This direction is the reason.

DN AXIOM 24 (revised): The establishment of an optimum rate of change is a basic goal of reason.

DEFINITION: LAMBDA is a MEST engine motivated by DELTA and directed by thought.

.

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

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

.

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

Reasoning is there to align the perception of the physical universe with experiential matrix of the mind. Alignment starts with free association. As gaps exist in alignment, thought makes postulates to fill them. Such aligned data in the experiential matix is referred to as “THETA FACSIMILES” by Hubbard.

DN AXIOM 26 (revised): Thought is accomplished by postulation and free association of various scenarios, entities or actions.

.

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.

The fundamental principle that needs to be satisfied is continuity, harmony and consistency of everything in this universe. This is the principle used for the alignment of reality.

DN AXIOM 27 (revised): Evolutionary progress occurs only when there is harmonious action or optimum rate of change.

.

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.

DN AXIOM 28 (revised): The mind is concerned wholly with the estimation of effort required to evolve.

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

.

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

The failure to differentiate comes from looking through a filter. The filter is created by a postulate that is fixed and not being associated freely with what is being perceived. The reason underlying the fixation is that the person is limited in his context he is using. This is narrow-mindedness.

DN AXIOM 29 (revised): The basic error of reason is to look through the filter of narrow-mindedness.

.

DN AXIOM 30: Rightness is proper calculation of effort.

DN AXIOM 30 (revised): Rightness is calculation of effort in appropriate context.

    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.
