The Factors 26 – 30

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 # 26. The manifestations of pleasure and pain, of thought, emotion and effort, of thinking, of sensation, of affinity, reality, communication, of behavior and being are thus derived and the riddles of our universe are apparently contained and answered herein.

There is no thinking when one is objectively observing things as they are. It is the view that is thinking. Similarly, it is the view that contains the emotions, sensations and feelings. In reaction to this view come about behaviors, such as, communication and effort.

Therefore, additional thoughts, emotions, sensations and feelings are generated as reactions only. If there are no reactions, nothing beyond the view is generated, and view starts resolving itself. As the view is simplified, so are the thoughts, emotions and effort in them.

There is no thinking really. All there is, is the view. Affinity, reality and sensations are part of what is viewed. Any communication simply flows naturally. The key to life is fully understanding what is there. Therein lies ultimate truth, awareness and bliss.

KHTK FACTOR # 26: All human travails and the riddles of the universe derive from the narrow and individualistic viewpoints. They resolve as we broaden our viewpoint to the universal viewpoint.


FACTOR # 27. There is beingness, but Man believes there is only becomingness.

We find Man in a state in which he is identifying himself with his subjective viewpoint. In other words, he entertains fixed ideas, prejudices and beliefs, and he is fixated on his view of things. Salvation lies in letting go of such fixations and arriving at the objectivity of the universal viewpoint.

But it is very hard to let go of such fixations in the absence of better clarity of view. This is possible, however with subject clearing of the scriptures of one’s own religion as well as those of other religions. Overall, it requires a wide study of life and the resolution of the contradictions, doubts and perplexities thus found.

KHTK FACTOR # 27: There is beingness of universal viewpoint, but Man believes only in the becomingness of individual viewpoints.


FACTOR # 28. The resolution of any problem posed hereby is the establishment of viewpoints and dimension points, the betterment of condition and concourse amongst dimension points, and, thereby, viewpoints, and the remedy of abundance or scarcity in all things, pleasant or ugly, by the rehabilitation of the ability of the viewpoint to assume points of view, and create and uncreate, neglect, start, change and stop dimension points of any kind at the determinism of the viewpoint. Certainty in all three universes must be regained, for certainty, not data, is knowledge.

The resolution of any human condition requires the broadening of the viewpoint toward the objectivity of universal viewpoint. This means noticing the anomalies (inconsistencies, disharmonies and discontinuities) because of one’s individual viewpoint. This doesn’t mean giving up one’s individuality and becoming one with universe. This means giving up self-generated considerations that are preventing one from seeing things as they are.

There may appear abundance or scarcity in all things, pleasant or ugly, but what really needs to be remedied is the ability of the viewpoint to examine the fixations and letting them unwind naturally. The individual viewpoint must be expanded toward becoming a universal viewpoint.

KHTK FACTOR # 28: The resolution of any human condition requires the broadening of the individual viewpoint toward the universal viewpoint. This means giving up self-generated considerations that are preventing one from seeing things as they are.


FACTOR # 29. In the opinion of the viewpoint, any beingness, any thing, is better than no thing, any effect is better than no effect, any universe better than no universe, any particle better than no particle, but the particle of admiration is best of all.

The universal viewpoint represents the beingness of the universe as “observer”. The universal dimension points represent the beingness of the universe as “observed”. At the level of the universe there is no distinction between the “observer” and “observed”.  As viewpoint narrows the objective view of dimension points is increasingly replaced by the subjective view of opinions. The “observer” then appears to be separate from the “observed”.

As long as there is viewpoint, there is also beingness and there is also universe and particles. Admiration is the appreciation of dimension points for what they are. It brings the observer and the observed together as one. It is, therefore, the most valuable particle.

KHTK FACTOR # 29: The narrow individuality of the viewpoint puts separation between observer and the observed; whereas, admiration brings the observer and the observed closer together. The particle of admiration, therefore, is best of all.


FACTOR # 30. And above these things there might be speculation only. And below these things there is the playing of the game. But these things which are written here Man can experience and know. And some may care to teach these things and some may care to use them to assist those in distress and some may desire to employ them to make individuals and organizations more able and so give to Earth a culture of which we can be proud.

In these Factors, Hubbard seem to be addressing the human condition just as Buddha did. But he favors the “individuality” of narrow viewpoints and ends up disparaging the attainment of universal viewpoint, which was embodied in the goal of Nirvana of Buddha.

Hubbard focuses on those things that, according to him, can be experienced and known. This may be true as he shares the subjective individuality of the western culture. But this subjectivity flies in the face of the objectivity of Vedas and Buddhism that is the characteristic of the eastern civilization.

Hubbard, however, has used modern scientific approach in his subject of Scientology that is valuable. These Factors simply need to be aligned with the fundamental objectivity of Vedas and Buddhism. I have attempted to do this in my proposed revision of the Factors.

KHTK FACTOR # 30: This revision of Hubbard’s pioneering work is an attempt to make it consistent with the objectivity of Vedas and Buddhism. Let’s hope that it inspires new powerful techniques for the resolution of the human condition.
