Dianetics Axioms 91 – 105

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 my comments and my proposed revisions of these axioms from the viewpoint of mindfulness. From this viewpoint the dynamic principle of this universe is “change”. Nothing survives eternally.

SYMBOLS

THETA: The symbol for the LIFE STATIC
MEST: (matter, energy, space and time)
LAMBDA: The symbol for living organisms
[Corresponding to THETA is DELTA: The symbol for DISTURBANCE]
[Corresponding to MEST is ICAD: (identity, consciousness, awareness and desire)]

DIANETICS AXIOMS

DN AXIOM 91: Past randomity can impose itself upon the present organism as THETA FACSIMILES.

DN AXIOM 91 (revised): Past randomity can impose itself upon the present organism as misalignments embedded in the experiential data matrix.

.

DN AXIOM 92: The engram is a severe area of plus or minus randomity of sufficient volume to cause unconsciousness.

DN AXIOM 92 (revised): The engram is an area of misalignment of sufficient volume in the experiential data matrix to cause unconsciousness.

.

DN AXIOM 93: Unconsciousness is an excess of randomity imposed by a counter-effort of sufficient force to cloud the awareness and direct function of the organism through the mind’s control center.

The experiential data matrix may be looked upon as a universal field. The “matrices” of organisms are a part of it. Each organism has its local control center directing its function. All such control centers are connected through the overall “experiential field”.

DN AXIOM 93 (revised): Too much randomity not only causes unconsciousness but also disrupts organism’s control center.

Definition: The control center of an organism directs the functions of the organism. Such control centers are part of a universal “experiential field”.

.

DN AXIOM 94: Any counter-effort which misaligns the organism’s command of itself or its environment establishes plus or minus randomity or, if of sufficient magnitude, is an engram.

The organism’s command of itself is the operation of the local control center. This control center may be overridden by an engram in the “experiential field”. An engram is a fixed pattern embedded in the experiential field and not aligned with it.

DN AXIOM 94 (revised): An engram is a misalignment of sufficient magnitude in the experiential field that influences the organism’s control center.

.

DN AXIOM 95: Past engrams are restimulated by the control center’s perception of circumstances similar to that engram in the present environment.

The control center is part of the surrounding experiential field where free association is going on continually with the perceptions from the environment. As soon as the association is made activation occurs. Association is made when there is similarity.

DN AXIOM 95 (revised): Areas of misalignments in the experiential field become active as soon as they are associated with something similar in the environment.

.

DN AXIOM 96: An engram is a THETA FACSIMILE of atoms and molecules in misalignment.

DN AXIOM 96 (revised): An engram is a THETA FACSIMILE that exists as an unassimilated insert due to misalignment.

Definition: A “Theta facsimile” is an element of the experiential field, which expresses itself as effort exerted by the local organism.

.

DN AXIOM 97: Engrams fix emotional response as that emotional response of the organism during the receipt of the counter-effort.

DN AXIOM 97 (revised): Engrams are still the original effort with the original response because they are yet to be assimilated into the experiential field.

.

DN AXIOM 98: Free emotional response depends on optimum randomity. It depends upon absence of or non-restimulation of engrams.

DN AXIOM 98 (revised): Free emotional response comes from theta facsimiles that are well-integrated into the experiential field.

.

DN AXIOM 99: THETA FACSIMILES can recombine into new symbols.

DN AXIOM 99 (revised): Theta facsimiles may be approximated by symbols.

.

DN AXIOM 100: Language is the symbolization of effort.

DN AXIOM 100 (revised): Language is the expression of effort in symbolic form.

.

DN AXIOM 101: Language depends for its force upon the force which accompanied its definition. (Note: Counter-effort, not language, is aberrative.)

DN AXIOM 101 (revised): Language depends for its force upon theta facsimiles that are being approximated by symbols.

.

DN AXIOM 102: The environment can occlude the central control of any organism and assume control of the motor controls of that organism. (Engram, restimulation, locks, hypnotism.)

The environment only needs to re-stimulate an engram, or activate a confusion, to make the organism go unconscious. The organism can then be controlled by commands given from the environment. This is what happens on a small but dramatic scale with a hypnotized person.

This axiom is not revised.

.

DN AXIOM 103: Intelligence depends on the ability to select aligned or misaligned data from an area of randomity and so discover a solution to reduce all randomity in that area.

Something that appears to be aligned within a local context could be part of misalignment within a larger context.

This axiom is not revised.

.

DN AXIOM 104: Persistence obtains in the ability of the mind to put solutions into physical action toward the realization of goals.

The goal, of course, is evolution towards greater potential. This becomes possible when a person is increasingly able to resolve discontinuities, disharmonies and inconsistencies in still larger contexts.

This axiom is not revised.

.

DN AXIOM 105: An unknown datum can produce data of plus or minus randomity.

Omitted datum is the hardest one to spot in a situation because most people fill any gaps with arbitrary assumptions without being aware of such an action. This may bring about some alignment in a narrow context, but still be a misalignment in a larger context.

This axiom is not revised.

Hubbard also called MEST by the letter Phi, so in his system lambda could be seen as a level between theta and phi, or as phi impinged upon by theta..

THETA and MEST (PHI) are not opposites. Here is my analysis that I shall be publishing on this blog later.

The following are the anchors of Hubbard’s THETA – MEST Theory.
.
SURVIVAL: The dynamic principle of existence
.
STATIC: Zero physically but infinite metaphysically
.
THETA: The symbol for the LIFE STATIC
.
MEST: Matter, Energy, Space and Time
.
LAMBDA: The symbol for living organisms

.

Mindfulness updates these anchors as follows.
.
EVOLUTION: The dynamic principle of existence
>>> The dynamic principle of existence is evolution, not survival.
.
STATIC: Absolute zero
>>> Static is zero both physically and metaphysically.
.
DELTA: The symbol for DISTURBANCE
>>> DELTA is a measure away from static (Change).
.
ICAD: Identity, Consciousness, Awareness and Desire
>>> ICAD is metaphysical equivalent of MEST, where
>>> Identity is metaphysical equivalent of Matter
>>> Consciousness is metaphysical equivalent of Energy
>>> Awareness is metaphysical equivalent of Space
>>> Desire is metaphysical equivalent of Time

.

Vocabulary equivalence:
.
THETA = Static + DELTA + ICAD
>>> DELTA is elemental which settles down as ICAD
>>> ICAD has the outer form of MEST (PHI)
