*Reference: The Axioms*

*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.*

.

**The Axioms**

*The KHTK version of axioms is meant to bring alignment between Scientology and Buddhism.*

.

**SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 1: Life is basically a static.**

*Definition: a Life Static has no mass, no motion, no wavelength, no location in space or in time. It has the ability to postulate and to perceive.*

**KHTK AXIOM 1: Life is a Theta-MEST system of energy animated by innate impulse.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 2: The static is capable of considerations, postulates, and opinions.**

**KHTK AXIOM 2: The innate impulse of life evolves into considerations, postulates and opinions.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 3: Space, energy, objects, form and time are the result of considerations made and/or agreed upon or not by the static and are perceived solely because the static considers that it can perceive them.**

**KHTK AXIOM 3: Space, energy, objects, form and time are postulates that help us assimilate, understand and explain the reality reaching us through our senses.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 4: Space is a viewpoint of dimension.**

**KHTK AXIOM 4: Space describes the dimensions of energy.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 5: Energy consists of postulated particles in space.**

**KHTK AXIOM 5: Energy describes the innate substance of the universe.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 6: Objects consist of grouped particles and solids.**

**KHTK AXIOM 6: Objects consist of grouped particles of condensed energy.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 7: Time is basically a postulate that space and particles will persist.**

**KHTK AXIOM 7: Time describes the duration of energy.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 8: The apparency of time is the change of position of particles in space.**

**KHTK AXIOM 8: Time is sensed by the motion of particles in space. The faster is the motion, the faster is time passing.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 9: Change is the primary manifestation of time.**

**KHTK AXIOM 9: Change is the primary manifestation of time.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 10: The highest purpose in this universe is the creation of an effect.**

**KHTK AXIOM 10: The highest purpose in the universe is to evolve by taking full responsibility.**

.

**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.*

*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.**

**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.**

**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.**

**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.**

**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.**

**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.**

**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.**

**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.**

**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.**

**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*.

.

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

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

.

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

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

.

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

**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.**

.

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

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

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **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.**

**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 complete objectivity of Knowingness down, with 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.**

.

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

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

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **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.**

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

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **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.**

**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. **

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **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.**

**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.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **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.**

*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.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 31: Goodness and badness, beautifulness and ugliness are alike considerations and have no other basis than opinion.**

**KHTK AXIOM 31: Goodness and badness, beautifulness and ugliness, are alike considerations that may be consistent with other data but not fully verified.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 32: Anything which is not directly observed tends to persist.**

**KHTK AXIOM 32: Things that are directly observed get well assimilated and do not have to be recalled.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 33: Any AS-IS-NESS which is altered by NOT-IS-NESS (by force) tends to persist.**

**KHTK AXIOM 33: When IS-NESS is altered by force, it becomes very persistent NOT-IS-NESS that cannot be undone easily.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 34: Any IS-NESS, when altered by force, tends to persist.**

**KHTK AXIOM 34: (Same as Axiom 33).**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 35: The ultimate truth is a static.****A Static has no mass, meaning, mobility, no wavelength, no time, no location in space, no space. This has the technical name of “Basic Truth”.**

**KHTK AXIOM 35: The ultimate truth is the knowingness of the universal viewpoint.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 36: A lie is a second postulate, statement or condition designed to mask a primary postulate which is permitted to remain.****EXAMPLES:**

Neither truth nor a lie is a motion or alteration of a particle from one position to another.

A lie is a statement that a particle having moved did not move, or a statement that a particle, not having moved, did move.

The basic lie is that a consideration which was made was not made or that it was different.

**KHTK AXIOM 36: A lie is a second postulate that is designed to resist the understanding of what is there.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 37: When a primary consideration is altered but still exists, persistence is achieved for the altering consideration.****All persistence depends on the Basic Truth, but the persistence is of the altering consideration, for the Basic Truth has neither persistence nor impersistence.**

**KHTK AXIOM 37: The basic truth is the objectivity of seeing things as they are.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 38: ****1. Stupidity is the unknownness of consideration.****2. Mechanical definition: Stupidity is the unknownness of time, place, form and event.****1. Truth is the exact consideration.****2. Truth is the exact time, place, form and event.****Thus, we see that failure to discover Truth brings about stupidity.**

Thus, we see that the discovery of Truth would bring about an As-is-ness by actual experiment.

Thus, we see that an ultimate truth would have no time, place, form or event.

Thus, then, we perceive that we can achieve a persistence only when we mask a truth.

Lying is an alteration of time, place, event, or form.

Lying becomes Alter-is-ness, becomes Stupidity. (The blackness of cases is an accumulation of the case’s own or another’s lies.)

Anything which persists must avoid As-is-ness. Thus, anything, to persist, must contain a lie.

**KHTK AXIOM 38:****1: Stupidity is the unknowness of consideration. Truth is the exact consideration.****2: Mechanical definition: Stupidity is the unknowness of time, place, form, and event. Truth is the exact time, place form, and event.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 39: Life poses problems for its own solution.**

**KHTK AXIOM 39: Life poses problems for its own solution.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY ****AXIOM 40: Any problem, to be a problem, must contain a lie. If it were truth, it would unmock.**

**An “unsolvable problem” would have the greatest persistence. It would also contain the greatest number of altered facts. To make a problem, one must introduce Alter-is-ness.**

**KHTK AXIOM 40: Any problem, to be a problem, must contain a lie. If it were truth, it would unmock.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 41: That into which alter–isness is introduced becomes a problem.**

**KHTK AXIOM 41: That into which alter-is-ness is introduced becomes a problem.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 42: MEST (matter, energy, space and time) persists because it is a problem.**

**It is a problem because it contains Alter-is-ness.**

**KHTK AXIOM 42: MEST (matter, energy, space, time) persists because its Theta aspect is being ignored.****We see some Theta aspect of MEST in computer technology.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 43: Time is the primary source of untruth.****Time states the untruth of consecutive considerations.**

**KHTK AXIOM 43: Condensation into fixation is the primary source of untruth.****Fixation condenses consecutive considerations stating them as untruth.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 44: Theta, the static, has no location in matter, energy, space or time, but is capable of consideration.**

**KHTK AXIOM 44: Theta is the thought energy aspect of the Theta-MEST spectrum that constitutes considerations.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 45: Theta can consider itself to be placed, at which moment it becomes placed, and to that degree a problem.**

**KHTK AXIOM 45: Theta can consider itself to be fixated, at which moment it becomes fixated, and to that degree a problem.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 46: Theta can become a problem by its considerations, but then becomes MEST.****A problem is to some degree MEST. MEST is a problem.**

**KHTK AXIOM 46: Theta becomes a problem by losing its motion and flexibility due to condensation.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 47: Theta can resolve problems.**

**KHTK AXIOM 47: Theta can resolve problems.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 48: Life is a game wherein theta as the static solves the problems of theta as mest.**

**KHTK AXIOM 48: Life is a game wherein Theta as un-condensed energy solves the problems of Theta as condensed energy.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 49: To solve any problem it is only necessary to become theta, the solver, rather than theta, the problem.**

**KHTK AXIOM 49: To solve any problem it is only necessary to become extroverted in one’s attention rather than introverted.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 50: Theta as MEST must contain considerations which are lies.**

**KHTK AXIOM 50: Theta as MEST must contain fixations which are lies.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 51: Postulates and live communication not being MEST and being senior to MEST can accomplish change in MEST without bringing about a persistence of MEST. Thus auditing can occur.**

**KHTK AXIOM 51: Postulates and live communication can bring animation to MEST as long as they themselves do not become fixated. Thus, auditing can occur.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 52: MEST persists and solidifies to the degree that it is not granted life.**

**KHTK AXIOM 52: MEST solidifies to the degree that it is not granted life.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 53: A stable datum is necessary to the alignment of data.**

**KHTK AXIOM 53: A stable datum is necessary to the alignment of data.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 54: A tolerance of confusion and an agreed–upon stable datum on which to align the data in a confusion are at once necessary for a sane reaction on the eight dynamics.** **This defines sanity.**

**KHTK AXIOM 54: A tolerance of confusion and an agreed–upon stable datum on which to align the data in a confusion are at once necessary for a sane reaction on the eight dynamics. **

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 55: The cycle of action is a consideration. Create, survive, destroy, the cycle of action accepted by the genetic entity, is only a consideration which can be changed by the thetan making a new consideration or different action cycles.**

**KHTK AXIOM 55: The cycle of action of create, survive, destroy is fundamental to this universe.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 56: Theta brings order to chaos.****COROLLARY: Chaos brings disorder to theta.**

**KHTK AXIOM 56: The innate impulse underlying this universe is evolving the universe toward greater order.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 57: Order manifests when communication, control and havingness are available to theta.****DEFINITIONS:**

Communication: the interchange of ideas across space.

Control: positive postulating, which is intention, and the execution thereof.

Havingness: that which permits the experience of mass and pressure.

**KHTK AXIOM 57: Order manifests when communication, control and havingness are available to theta.**

.

**SCIENTOLOGY** **AXIOM 58: Intelligence and judgment are measured by the ability to evaluate relative importances.****COROLLARY: The ability to evaluate importances and unimportances is the highest faculty of logic.**

COROLLARY: Identification is a monotone assignment of importance.

COROLLARY: Identification is the inability to evaluate differences in time, location, form, composition or importance.

**KHTK AXIOM 58: Intelligence and judgment are measured by the ability to evaluate relative importances.**
