This paper presents Factor # 12 from the book SCIENTOLOGY 8-8008 by L. RON HUBBARD. The contents are from the original publication of this book by The Church of Scientology (1952).

The paragraphs of the original material (in black) are accompanied by brief comments (in color) based on the present understanding.  Feedback on these comments is appreciated.


FACTOR # 12. The dimension point can be moved by the viewpoint, for the viewpoint, in addition to creative ability and consideration, possesses volition and potential independence of action; and the viewpoint, viewing dimension points, can change in relation to its own or other dimension points or viewpoints. Thus comes about all the fundamentals there are to motion.

As the viewpoint moves dimension points around, it basically rearranges its opinion. As it changes its perspective of dimension points, there appears to be motion, but the dimension points do not really change.

The real motion comes about when dimension points evolve and with it the viewpoint also evolves objectively. Such evolution maintains continuity, harmony and consistency of viewpoint in equilibrium with its dimension points.

Different viewpoints can be in equilibrium with their own sets of dimension points. But they can still be subjective if they are not in equilibrium with each other. And this requires further expansion of the viewpoints toward the universal viewpoint.

KHTK FACTOR # 12: The viewpoints can rearrange their opinions, or change their whole perspective of looking at dimension points. This brings about motion. But the real motion comes about as the viewpoint evolves objectively toward the universal viewpoint.



An individual may resolve all doubts, perplexities and confusions within himself and thus feel enlightened. This may be accomplished by all individuals. But if there still are discontinuities, disharmonies and inconsistencies among individuals, then the ultimate enlightenment is yet to be attained.

That was Buddha’s effort after attaining his personal enlightenment. It is a tall order. Was Buddha successful in this effort? Is that effort going on still?
