Dianetics Axioms 61 – 75

 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 mindfulness. From this viewpoint the dynamic principle of this universe is to evolve. Nothing survives eternally.



DN AXIOM 61: An organism is rejected by THETA to the degree that it fails in its goals.

DN AXIOM 61 (proposed): An organism becomes extinct to the degree it fails to evolve or support evolution.


DN AXIOM 62: Higher organisms can exist only in the degree that they are supported by the lower organisms.


DN AXIOM 63: The usefulness of an organism is determined by the alignment of its efforts toward survival.

DN AXIOM 63 (proposed): The usefulness of an organism is determined by the alignment of its efforts toward evolution.


DN AXIOM 64: The mind perceives and stores all data of the environment and aligns or fails to align these according to the time they were perceived.

DEFINITION: A conclusion is the THETA FACSIMILES of a group of combined data.

DEFINITION: A datum is a THETA FACSIMILE of physical action.

All perceptions received in the mind are assimilated in a mental matrix. Any perception that cannot be assimilated stays as a recording waiting to be assimilated. Conclusions are the signals emanating from the mental matrix.

DN AXIOM 64 (proposed): The perceptions arriving at the mind are either assimilated in the mental matrix, or they remain as a recordings yet to be assimilated. The signals emanating from the mental matrix act as conclusions.


DN AXIOM 65: The process of thought is the perception of the present and the comparison of it to the perceptions and conclusions of the past in order to direct action in the immediate or distant future.

COROLLARY: The attempt of thought is to perceive realities of the past and present in order to predict or postulate realities of the future.

The present is whenever a perception is assimilated in the mental matrix and a signal is emanated as the conclusion. The mental matrix consists of all perceptions assimilated up to that point. They have certain time indexes, but all assimilated perceptions are in the present. We are simply looking at input and output. The process of thought is mainly the assimilation of perceptions. There are many perceptions waiting to be assimilated. These are anomalies waiting to be resolved.

DN AXIOM 65 (proposed): The process of thought is the resolution of anomalies and assimilation of perceptions. The assimilated mental matrix processes the thought instantly.


DN AXIOM 66: The process by which life effects its conquest of the material universe consists in the conversion of the potential effort of matter and energy in space and through time to effect with it the conversion of further matter and energy in space and through time.

DN AXIOM 66 (proposed): The process by which universe evolves consists in the conversion of the potential effort of matter and energy to effect further conversion of matter and energy. Life is a part of this process.


DN AXIOM 67: THETA contains its own THETA UNIVERSE effort which translates into MEST effort.

DN AXIOM 67 (proposed): The signals from the mental matrix translates into physical efforts of the body.


DN AXIOM 68: The single arbitrary in any organism is time.

DN AXIOM 68 (proposed): The arbitrariness consists of the postulates made to align data.


DN AXIOM 69: Physical universe perceptions and efforts are received by an organism as force waves, convert by facsimile into THETA and are thus stored.

DEFINITION: Randomity is the misalignment through the internal or external efforts by other forms of life or the material universe of the efforts of an organism, and is imposed on the physical organism by counter-efforts in the environment.

The physical universe is perceived through the sense organs. These perceptions break down and get assimilated in the mental matrix and are thus stored. The misalignment existing in these perceptions requires resolution before they can be assimilated. Pain and efforts provide measures of misalignment. The source of this misalignment is the existing state of the physical universe and the life in it. 

DN AXIOM 69 (proposed): The perceptions break down and get assimilated in the mental matrix and are thus stored. Pain and efforts provide the measure of misalignment to be resolved. 


DN AXIOM 70: Any cycle of any life organism is from static to motion to static.

DN AXIOM 70 (proposed): The life organism takes birth, lives and ultimately dies. Its goal is to attain the static viewpoint and evolve.


DN AXIOM 71: The cycle of randomity is from static, through optimum, through randomity sufficiently repetitious or similar to constitute another static.

A static has either no form or it has a balanced form that is continuous, consistent and harmonious.

DN AXIOM 71 (proposed): Randomity starts from the disturbance of a formless static, and ends with a static of balanced form.


DN AXIOM 72: There are two subdivisions to randomity: data randomity and force randomity.

DN AXIOM 72 (proposed): Randomity exists in the misalignment of the data matrix and the effort extended.


DN AXIOM 73: The three degrees of randomity consist of minus randomity, optimum randomity and plus randomity.

DEFINITION: Randomity is a component factor and necessary part of motion, if motion is to continue.

DN AXIOM 73 (proposed): Randomity is the misalignment that induces motion toward alignment. It can be too little, just right or too much.


DN AXIOM 74: Optimum randomity is necessary to learning.

DN AXIOM 74 (proposed): Randomity has to be just right for learning to take place.


DN AXIOM 75: The important factors in any area of randomity are effort and counter-effort. (Note: As distinguished from near perceptions of effort.)

DN AXIOM 75 (proposed): The important factor in any area of randomity is the assimilation of effort and counter-effort.
