The Axioms 11 – 20

Reference: KHTK Version of Scientology

In the Scientology Axioms, written by L. Ron Hubbard in 1954, we have a condensation and a recapitulation of all the earlier Axioms and Logics, boiled down to a more practical, more fundamental and more forthright list. They compare best, perhaps, to the axioms of geometry; they are certainly as self–evident as that. But the axioms of geometry are really much cruder than the Scientology Axioms, since geometry proves itself by itself and the Axioms of Scientology prove themselves by all of life.

This paper presents Scientology Axioms 11 – 20 and the corresponding KHTK versions.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 11: The considerations resulting in conditions of existence are fourfold.

(a) AS-IS-NESS is the condition of immediate creation without persistence, and is the condition of existence which exists at the moment of creation and the moment of destruction, and is different from other considerations in that it does not contain survival.


(b) ALTER-IS-NESS is the consideration which introduces change and therefore time and persistence, into an AS-IS-NESS to obtain persistency.


(c) IS-NESS is an apparency of existence brought about by the continuous alteration of an AS-IS-NESS. This is called, when agreed upon, Reality.


(d) NOT-IS-NESS is the effort to handle IS-NESS by reducing its condition through the use of force. It is an apparency and cannot entirely vanquish an IS-NESS.

Here the four conditions are the same but KHTK defines them differently.

KHTK AXIOM 11: The considerations resulting in conditions of existence are fourfold.

(a) AS-IS-NESS is seeing things as they are. It helps one resolve anomalies in IS-NESS by eliminating arbitrary considerations. It moves the viewpoint toward greater objectivity.

(b) ALTER-IS-NESS is looking through arbitrary considerations and getting an altered viewpoint of IS-NESS. As more arbitrary considerations are added, it moves the viewpoint toward greater subjectivity.

(c) IS-NESS is the view of existence as seen through one’s considerations.

(d) NOT-IS-NESS is the denial of the anomalies in IS-NESS and insisting on one’s arbitrary considerations and even enforcing them.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 12: The primary condition of any universe is that two spaces, energies, or objects must not occupy the same space. when this condition is violated (perfect duplicate) the apparency of any universe or any part there-of is nulled.

Two things cannot occupy the same space because of the force of repulsion between them. This is the case with two atoms and two conflicting ideas. “Occupying the same space” means that the repulsive forces must be sorted out.

Space arises from energy, and energy cannot vanish per the Law of Conservation, but the repulsive forces can vanish with better alignment of the energies and ideas, so they are continuous, harmonious and consistent.

A thetan and body are not two different objects. They are part of the same Theta-MEST system. But that system could be misaligned within itself, which is a condition to be sorted out. A “perfect duplicate” means bringing perfect alignment that makes all repulsive forces vanish.

KHTK AXIOM 12: A “perfect duplicate” means bringing perfect alignment among the components of a Theta-MEST system such that all repulsive forces vanish.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 13: The cycle of action of the physical universe is: create, survive (persist), destroy.

There is no such thing as the physical universe. There is only the Theta-MEST universe. Creation is the change from static to kinetic. Survival is the expansion and contraction as kinetic. Destruction is change from kinetic back to static. The overall energy is conserved. Only the form of the universe goes through the cycle of create, survive, destroy. Of course, time underlies this sequence of changes.

KHTK AXIOM 13: The cycle of action of the form of the universe is: create, survive (persist), destroy.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 14: Survival is accomplished by ALTER-IS-NESS and NOT-IS-NESS, by which is gained the persistency known as time.

Survival is already there in the kinetic phase of IS-NESS. It is persisting, so time is there. Survival improves as we practice AS-IS-NESS. It deteriorates as we practice ALTER-ISNESS and NOT-IS-NESS.

KHTK AXIOM 14: Survival is persistence of IS-NESS. It improves as we practice AS-IS-NESS. It deteriorates as we practice ALTER-ISNESS and NOT-IS-NESS.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 15: Creation is accomplished by the postulation of an AS-IS-NESS.

When you are faced with difficulties in survival you look at the situation closely. This is like viewing IS-NESS and recognizing the anomalies in it. The moment you recognize the anomaly as a discontinuity, disharmony of inconsistency, it disappears with dawning understanding. You then naturally come up with creative solutions to handle the situation. This is AS-IS-NESS. It improves one’s survival.

KHTK AXIOM 15: Survival is improved by the AS-IS-NESS of difficulties with creative solutions.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 16: Complete destruction is accomplished by the postulation of the AS-IS-NESS of any existence and the parts thereof.

Energy and its forms cannot be completely destroyed; only the misalignment of its forms may be destroyed completely through understanding, which is AS-IS-NESS. When there is complete understanding, creative solutions automatically follow, and the difficulty vanishes completely. For example, messy wars are avoided when the situation is handled through understanding and creative compromise toward the optimum survival of all parties.

KHTK AXIOM 16: Complete destruction of difficulties is accomplished by the postulation of creative solutions through AS-IS-NESS of the situation.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 17: The static, having postulated AS-IS-NESS, then practices ALTER-IS-NESS, and so achieves the apparency of IS-NESS and so obtains reality.

An IS-NESS is there always, whether good or bad. The practice of AS-IS-NESS simply resolves anomalies and improves the IS-NESS. The practice of ALTER-IS-NESS simply creates anomalies and leads to a worsening IS-NESS. This is reality.

KHTK AXIOM 17: IS-NESS appears when static changes to kinetic at the beginning of a cycle. AS-IS-NESS then improves, and ALTER-IS-NESS then worsens that IS-NESS. This is reality.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 18: The static, in practicing NOT-IS-NESS, brings about the persistence of unwanted existences, and so brings about unreality, which includes forgetfulness, unconsciousness and other undesirable states.

This axiom is accurate as long as we replace “static” by “person”. Static is a condition in which energy exists in potential state only; it does not act.

KHTK AXIOM 18: The person, in practicing NOT-IS-NESS, brings about the persistence of unwanted existences, and so brings about unreality, which includes forgetfulness, unconsciousness, and other undesirable states.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 19: Bringing the static to view as–is any condition devaluates that condition.

This was not covered by earlier Scientology axioms, but prior KHTK axioms have covered this adequately. Only change is to replace “static” by “person”.

KHTK AXIOM 19: Bringing the person to view AS-IS any condition devaluates that condition.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 20: Bringing the static to create a perfect duplicate causes the vanishment of any existence or part thereof.

Definition: A perfect duplicate is an additional creation of the object, its energy and space, in its own space, in its own time using its own energy. this violates the condition that two objects must not occupy the same space, and causes the vanishment of the object.

Making a perfect duplicate seems to be a mental exercise that is left to the person to figure out. There is no clear explanation given here on how to make a perfect duplicate. When duplicating a vase, you can make a mental picture of it, but how do you create its energy and space again? How do you create them in its own space and time? How do you use its own energy?

To do that you will have to repeat the exact sequence of actions that it took to make that vase, at the location where that vase was made using the same raw materials employed to make it. If you are just doing it mentally then you must at least know the techniques used in making that vase, the raw materials used, how those raw materials were obtained, etc. It comes down to fully understanding what one is looking at. With deeper understanding one’s viewpoint changes.

Hubbard is talking about a theoretical principle, the ultimate of which is having a viewpoint that can see in depth what is there. There is complete understanding. No anomalies exist in the reality of things. Any anomalies that come up are resolved quickly. There is knowingness as the viewpoint can grasp the oneness of continuity, harmony and consistency in everything.

KHTK AXIOM 20: Bringing a person to create a perfect duplicate causes the vanishment of any and all anomalies from his understanding.

Definition: Anomalies are discontinuities, disharmonies and inconsistencies.
