Dianetics Axioms 106 – 120

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 106: The introduction of an arbitrary factor or force without recourse to natural laws of the body or the area into which the arbitrary is introduced brings about plus or minus randomity.

An arbitrary factor or force is one that completely disregards natural laws. Underlying all alignments are the natural laws. Anything that conflicts with these natural laws will bring about misalignment and unpredictability. 


DN AXIOM 107: Data of plus or minus randomity depends for its confusion on former plus or minus randomity or absent data.

If a randomity or misalignment cannot be resolved, then the source of that difficulty is some earlier randomity or missing element.


DN AXIOM 108: Efforts which are inhibited or compelled by exterior efforts effect a plus or minus randomity of efforts.

If an organism’s efforts are inhibited or compelled by external efforts, then that will cause more randomity or misalignment.


DN AXIOM 109: Behavior is modified by counter-efforts which have impinged on the organism.

Counter-efforts from the environment are perceived and assimilated in the mental matrix of the organism. This modifies the matrix as well as the organism’s behavior.


DN AXIOM 110: The component parts of THETA are affinity, reality and communication.

THETA is the inherent impulse of energy that is devoted to bringing about continuity, consistency and harmony of oneness. Affinity goes together with seeking of continuity; reality goes together with seeking of consistency; and harmony goes together with establishing of communication.


DN AXIOM 111: Self-determinism consists of maximal affinity, reality and communication.

Self-determinism exists when evolution occurs naturally. There is maximal affinity, reality and communication in this case.


DN AXIOM 112: Affinity is the cohesion of THETA.

Affinity manifests itself as the recognition of similarity of efforts and goals amongst organisms by those organisms.

THETA is the electromagnetic field of thought in and around the life organisms. 

DN AXIOM 112 (Proposed): Affinity is the continuity of Theta among organisms.


DN AXIOM 113: Reality is the agreement upon perceptions and data in the physical universe.

All that we can be sure is real is that on which we have agreed is real.

Agreement is the essence of reality.

It is not agreement but consistency throughout that makes it real. 

DN AXIOM 113 (Proposed): Reality is the consistency of perceptions among organisms.


DN AXIOM 114: Communication is the interchange of perception through the material universe between organisms or the perception of the material universe by sense channels.

DN AXIOM 114 (Proposed): Communication is the harmony of interactions among organisms.


DN AXIOM 115: Self-determinism is the THETA control of the organism.

DN AXIOM 115 (Proposed): Self-determinism is the organism operating per the natural laws.


DN AXIOM 116: A self-determined effort is that counter-effort which has been received into the organism in the past and integrated into the organism for its conscious use.

DN AXIOM 116 (Proposed): A self-determined effort depends upon the complete assimilation of all perceptions.


DN AXIOM 117: The components of self-determinism are affinity, communication and reality.

Self-determinism is manifested along each dynamic.

DN AXIOM 117 (Proposed): The components of self-determinism are continuity, consistency and harmony.


DN AXIOM 118: An organism cannot become aberrated unless it has agreed upon that aberration, has been in communication with a source of aberration and has had affinity for the aberrator.

The organism does not have arbitrary will. It is discontinuity, inconsistency and disharmony of misalignment that generates aberration within it.

DN AXIOM 118 (Proposed): An organism cannot become aberrated unless discontinuity, inconsistency and disharmony is generated within it.


DN AXIOM 119: Agreement with any source, contra- or prosurvival, postulates a new reality for the organism.

Agreement really means becoming aligned with something. That something may not be consistent with the natural laws.

DN AXIOM 119 (Proposed): Alignment with any non-optimum source makes the organism inconsistent.


DN AXIOM 120: Nonsurvival courses, thoughts and actions require nonoptimum effort.

This axiom is referring to the tendencies to generate misalignment. 

DN AXIOM 120 (Proposed): Misalignments proceeds from a non-optimum source.
