*Project: A Course on Hubbard’s Factors*

*This paper presents **Factor # 15** 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 # **15. The dimension point can be different from other dimension points and thus can possess an individual quality. And many dimension points can possess a similar quality, and others can possess a similar quality unto themselves. Thus comes about the quality of classes of matter.*

This factor may be stated more simply as follows. The dimension points may be arranged in broad classes such as physical and metaphysical. They may be arranged further into sub-classes such as continuum and discrete, and still further into more sub-classes. If fact, every dichotomy provides two opposite classes, and a gradient of classes between them, and these dichotomies are also connected on a gradient.

In fact, there is an underlying continuity, harmony and consistency among all dimension points, and the dimension points may be indexed with each other forming an infinite matrix .

*REVISED FACTOR # 15: All dimension points are unique in themselves, but there are similarities enough**to arrange them into classes. At a finer level there is underlying continuity, harmony and consistency enough to arrange them into a finely connected matrix.*

## FINAL COMMENTS

*The universe may be seen as a fine matrix of infinite dimensions. Similarly, the mind may also be seen as such a matrix. In fact, a mind may be seen as a matrix embedded into the universal matrix.*
