The Axioms 21 – 30

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 21 – 30 and the corresponding KHTK versions.

AXIOM 21: Understanding is composed of affinity, reality and communication.

To understand is to get the AS-IS-NESS of something. Of course, there are degrees of understanding (AS-IS-NESS). Ultimate understanding is the Universal Viewpoint . The universal viewpoint is pure theta and not Static (potential) as Hubbard calls it.

In the universal viewpoint, all data is assimilated to become one. In other words, it becomes continuous, harmonious and consistent. It turns into knowingness.

Understanding has the aspects of affinity, reality and communication. They always go together in all circumstances. Communication, however, is the entrance point to understanding.

KHTK AXIOM 21: Understanding (AS-IS-NESS) has the aspects of affinity, reality and communication.

.

AXIOM 22: The practice of not-isness reduces understanding.

NOT-IS-NESS means denying what is there and assuming things that are not there. There is no communication with the reality and no affinity for it either. Therefore, the reality is very low. The understanding is, therefore, very much reduced.

KHTK AXIOM 22: The practice of not-is-ness reduces understanding.

.

AXIOM 23: The static has the capability of total knowingness. Total knowingness would consist of total ARC.

The state of AS-IS-NESS is a viewpoint that can see things as they are. In other words, it is totally objective. We call this the universal viewpoint. From this viewpoint, one is able to grasp the whole universe completely without any filter. One has total knowingness.

Total knowingness means knowing the oneness of continuity, harmony and consistency in everything. This doesn’t mean everything is reduced to zero. It is just that everything is perfectly aligned and there is no resistance to finding anything. It is not a static condition of mere potential.

KHTK AXIOM 23: A person has the capability of total knowingness of the universal viewpoint. Total knowingness would consist of total ARC.

Definition: The universal viewpoint views things as they are without filter. In other words, it is totally objective.

.

AXIOM 24: Total ARC would bring about the vanishment of all mechanical conditions of existence.

ARC shall bring about total understanding, and, therefore, the universal viewpoint of total objectivity. All fixation will be gone, and the mechanics will simplify greatly.

KHTK AXIOM 24: Total ARC would bring about the total objectivity of the universal viewpoint.

.

AXIOM 25: Affinity is a scale of attitudes which falls away from the coexistence of static, through the interpositions of distance and energy, to create identity, down to close proximity but mystery.

By the practice of Is-ness (Beingness) and Not-is-ness (refusal to Be) individuation progresses from the Knowingness of complete identification down through the introduction of more and more distance and less and less duplication, through Lookingness, Emotingness, Effortingness, Thinkingness, Symbolizingness, Eatingness, Sexingness, and so through to not-Knowingness (Mystery). Until the point of Mystery is reached, some communication is possible, but even at Mystery an attempt to communicate continues. Here we have, in the case of an individual, a gradual falling away from the belief that one can assume a complete Affinity down to the conviction that all is a complete Mystery. Any individual is somewhere on this Know-to-Mystery scale. The original Chart of Human Evaluation was the Emotion section of this scale.

Affinity is a matter of distance or similarity. Greater affinity means lesser distance and greater similarity. The Know-to-Mystery scale is an Affinity scale. It is a genius idea arrived at by Hubbard to describe what happens to the viewpoint of a person as he increasingly succumbs to ALTER-IS-NESS.

At top is Knowingness, which is the intuitive grasp of everything. There is oneness of knowledge. At the next level of Looking one has to look to find out. At the next level of Emotion, one knows things by his emotional reaction to them. At the Effort level a person depends on mental image pictures to think with. He must touch and feel things to know them. Thinkingness comes below the effort band as figure-figure. When a person drops down the scale below figure-figure, he is into a point where he figures with symbols. A symbol is a packaged thought. This is increasing condensation as one goes down the scale. Symbols condense into Eatingness, which is a dog eat dog kind of behavior indicative of fixations. Eatingness condenses into Sexingness where attention is fixated on future survival. Below that is the level of always Mystery where one is pretending there’s something to know earlier than the Mystery.

KHTK AXIOM 25: Affinity is a scale of attitudes which falls away from the objectivity of the universal viewpoint, through the interpositions of distance and subjectivity, to create identity, down to close proximity but mystery.

By the practice of ALTER-IS-NESS individuation progresses from the Knowingness of complete objectivity down through the introduction of more and more distance and less and less duplication, through Lookingness, Emotingness, Effortingness, Thinkingness, Symbolizingness, Eatingness, Sexingness, and so through to not-Knowingness (Mystery). Until the point of Mystery is reached, some communication is possible, but even at Mystery an attempt to communicate continues. Here we have, in the case of an individual, a gradual falling away from the belief that one can assume a complete Affinity down to the conviction that all is a complete Mystery. Any individual is somewhere on this Know-to-Mystery scale.

AXIOM 26: Reality is the agreed-upon apparency of existence.

People have their own viewpoint about things. That is their personal reality. It becomes a common reality only when there is a broad agreement on it.

You become real to another person when you mimic that person. In other words, you have entered that person’s reality by agreeing with him. With the establishment of this common reality you can get into better communication with him.

But this common reality may not be the same as the actual reality, which one perceives from the top of the Know-to Mystery scale (see Axiom 25). One moves away from the actual reality as a one comes down the Know-to Mystery scale.

However, as everyone rises up to the top of the Know-to Mystery scale there comes about a natural agreement.

KHTK AXIOM 26: Reality among people is based on what they agree upon. The actual reality, however, is perceived from the viewpoint of Knowingness.

.

AXIOM 27: An actuality can exist for one individually, but when it is agreed with by others it can be said to be a reality.

The anatomy of Reality is contained in Is-ness, which is composed of As-is-ness and Alter-is-ness. Is-ness is an apparency, it is not an Actuality. The Actuality is As-is-ness altered so as to obtain a persistency. Unreality is the consequence and apparency of the practice of Not-is-ness.

A person’s IS-NESS is what he sees through the filters of his considerations. AS-IS-NESS decreases those filters. ALTER-IS-NESS increases those filters. NOT-IS-NESS is the denial of IS-NESS, which produces unreality. Things become more solid as one descends the Know-to-Mystery scale. Agreement from others simply keep one’s reality in place because it has approval from others.

KHTK AXIOM 27: One can have his own personal reality, but when it is agreed with by others it becomes a common reality.

.

AXIOM 28: Communication is the consideration and action of impelling an impulse or particle from source-point across a distance to receipt-point, with the intention of bringing into being at the receipt-point a duplication and understanding of that which emanated from the source-point.

The formula of Communication is: Cause, Distance, Effect, with Intention, Attention and Duplication WITH UNDERSTANDING. The component parts of Communication are Consideration, Intention, Attention, Cause, Source-point, Distance, Effect, Receipt-point, Duplication, Understanding, the Velocity of the impulse or particle, Nothingness or Somethingness. A non-communication consists of Barriers. Barriers consist of Space, Interpositions (such as walls and screens of fast-moving particles), and Time. A communication, by definition, does not need to be two-way. When a communication is returned, the formula is repeated, with the receipt-point now becoming a source point and the former source-point now becoming a receipt-point.

In an ideal communication the source and receipt-points mesh together like two gears. The impulse driving them is natural when it is aligned with everything around. Communication falls off when the source and receipt-points are not on the same wavelength (lack of duplication).

Distance between source and receipt-points comes about because of falling affinity. The intentions at the two ends are not similar and the attention is not fully there, Therefore, duplication and understanding suffer. The considerations at the two ends are not in harmony.

KHTK AXIOM 28: Communication is a co-action between source and receipt-points like two smoothly meshing gears, where the impulse passing back and forth is in complete harmony with the considerations and intentions involved.  

.

AXIOM 29: In order to cause an as-is-ness to persist, one must assign other authorship to the creation than his own. otherwise, his view of it would cause its vanishment.

Any space, energy, form, object, individual, or physical universe condition can exist only when an alteration has occurred of the original As-is-ness so as to prevent a casual view from vanishing it. In other words, anything which is persisting must contain a “lie” so that the original consideration is not completely duplicated.

IS-NESS is persisting by its very nature. Its view gets corrupted when ALTER-IS-NESS is practiced. This corruption goes away when AS-IS-NESS is practiced. When other authorship is attributed to some change made then that lie persists. One may start to believe in that lie and lose one’s ability to change it back.

KHTK AXIOM 29: IS-NESS persists by its very nature, and so does any change to it. When other authorship is assigned to a change, one loses the ability to change it back.

.

AXIOM 30: The general rule of auditing is that anything which is unwanted and yet persists must be thoroughly viewed, at which time it will vanish.

If only partially viewed, its intensity, at least, will decrease.

This is very true. A through view will always make an aberration vanish whether it is done through auditing or through subject clearing.

KHTK AXIOM 30: The general rule of auditing is that anything which is unwanted and yet persists must be thoroughly viewed, at which time it will vanish.

If only partially viewed, its intensity, at least, will decrease.
