The Factors 21 – 25

Project: A Course on Hubbard’s Factors

The original Scientology Factors are a summation of the considerations and examinations of the human spirit and the material universe, which was completed between A.D. 1923 and 1953 by L. Ron Hubbard.

The KHTK Factors are a result of the subject clearing of Buddhism, Scientology and philosophy in general. 


FACTOR # 21. From this comes a consistency of viewpoint of the interaction of dimension points and this, regulated, is TIME.

Time is the duration of existence. Each dimension point (and its form) has its own duration (time), which is measured against the infinite duration of existence. When self-generated considerations get agreed upon by the viewpoints, they gain fixed duration. Such agreements allow the viewpoints to view and interact with the dimension points in a consistent manner, if not accurately.

The time duration of agreements has a fixed characteristic. Time has a dynamic characteristic to the degree considerations of dimension points are evolving.

KHTK FACTOR # 21: TIME is duration of things measured against the infinite duration of existence. Universal viewpoint, and the agreements among subjective viewpoints, provide a consistent view of time.


FACTOR # 22. And there are universes.

For a viewpoint, the universe is entirety of its awareness. The universal viewpoint has the awareness of entire existence that is continuous, harmonious and consistent throughout. This shall be the objective view of the universe.

As a viewpoint narrows it loses the context of the entire existence. It views things from a limited context, which limits its awareness. The awareness is no longer continuous, harmonious and consistent throughout, but has holes in it. These holes are filled by self-generated considerations; therefore, the viewpoint becomes subjective to that degree. A subjective viewpoint’s awareness constitutes a subjective universe.

KHTK FACTOR # 22: There is only one objective universe; but there are as many “subjective universes” as there are subjective viewpoints.


FACTOR # 23. The universes, then, are three in number: the universe created by one viewpoint, the universe created by every other viewpoint, the universe created by the mutual action of viewpoints which is agreed to be upheld—the physical universe.

A person’s viewpoint has its total awareness, which is his universe. He looks at others having total awareness from their viewpoint. That is the other person’s universe. Then there is the awareness that everyone agrees upon. Hubbard calls this the physical universe. These are the three universes as classified by Hubbard.

The physical universe is the universe perceived by the physical senses of the body. The non-physical universe is perceived by the mental sense of the person, which is supposedly individualistic. But when the physical and mental senses are integrated in that all anomalies (discontinuity, disharmony and inconsistency) in perception are resolved, a person achieves an objective viewpoint from which he sees things as they are. This is the “objective universe”.

Thus all “non-physical” universes, and the physical universe, converge to this objective universe as viewpoints integrate their mental and physical perceptions. This integration is achieved by resolving all anomalies in perception. No arbitrary agreement is then needed.

KHTK FACTOR # 23: The universes “created” by all viewpoints and the agreed-upon “physical universe” converge to an objective universe, when all anomalies (discontinuity, disharmony and inconsistency) in perception are resolved.


FACTOR # 24. And the viewpoints are never seen. And the viewpoints consider more and more that the dimension points are valuable. And the viewpoints try to become the anchor points and forget that they can create more points and space and forms. Thus comes about scarcity. And the dimension points can perish and so the viewpoints assume that they, too, can perish.

The universal viewpoint lies in the clarity of perception of the universe. As the viewpoint narrows, the perception becomes unclear, and self-generated considerations (speculations, assumptions, beliefs and agreements) enter the picture. These considerations introduce subjectivity and the viewpoints start to become occluded.

The longing for clarity is always there. The speculations that seem to promise clarity, become valuable as beliefs and one starts to depend on them. One forgets that the actual clarity lies beyond speculations, assumption and beliefs. Thus, comes about fixations and one starts to think that letting go of such beliefs will also be the end of oneself.

KHTK FACTOR # 24: The viewpoint is defined by its ability to perceive the dimension points. Absence of clarity leads to dependence on self-generated considerations. Letting go of such considerations may feel like the end of the viewpoint.


FACTOR # 25. Thus comes about death.

The viewpoint can never perish as long as there are dimension points to view. The dimension points may change their “form”, but they can never perish because the universe is always there (the law of conservation of energy).

The viewpoint, however, can get totally fixated on its self-generated considerations, such that it becomes completely unaware of the objective universe. All that it views is its own pre-determined considerations. The viewpoint may think that it is alive, but it has become completely subjective. It has forgotten how to evolve. It doesn’t even care for any clarity. This may be like death.

KHTK FACTOR # 25: Complete introversion on “self-generated considerations” is equivalent to the death of viewpoint.
