The Postulates 16 – 20

Reference: KHTK Postulates

These postulates are being developed from the subject clearing of Buddhism, Scientology and philosophy in general. This is a work in progress. Constructive criticism is welcome.

POSTULATE # 16: The purpose of the universe is to evolve.

COROLLARY: The universe is evolving through all the inanimate and animate entities.

The highest purpose is to evolve. It goes beyond individual survival. This purpose manifests through an inner impulse (thought) and outer appearance (energy). The universe is made up of this impulse and energy. This is also the most fundamental part of our makeup.

POSTULATE # 17: Energy of the universe has been evolving from radiation to matter, to minerals, to animated life, to reacting organisms, to thinking mammals, and to self-aware humans.

COROLLARY: Each element in the chain of evolution is surviving on an immediate basis, while it is evolving in the long range.

In Hinduism, it is believed that energy goes through 8.4 million different forms before it attains the human form. In other words, energy arrives at self-awareness after a very long and winding journey of evolution. Therefore, human form is very special, and it is the beginning of accelerated evolution.

POSTULATE # 18: Entities evolve toward greater complexity, so do their control systems.

DEFINITION: The central control system of an organism is called its mind.

Inanimate entities are controlled by their properties. So, their properties define their primitive “minds”. Such “minds” are straight patterns without power of choice. Here we have the structure of the atoms with electrons surrounding the nucleus. Different atomic structures have different properties, which gives us the periodic table.

But a more complex organic molecule has patterns of electrons that act like a molecular computer and provides the molecule options in its interactions. This is how animated matter comes about. Beyond that the complexity of this “mind” increases with the complexity of the organism. This mind learns to recognize the problems faced by the organism, and to solve them.

POSTULATE # 19: The mind of a human organism is a well-assimilated matrix of data elements that have large numbers of associations among themselves.

DEFINITION: A data element is an “atom” of thought, just like pixel is an “atom” of a picture. A concatenation of data elements produces a thought.

DEFINITION: A well-assimilated matrix means that none of the associations among data elements are missing.

In the matrix of the human mind, a concatenation of data elements is possible in infinity of different ways. A thought may occur like a lightning bolt bursting through the matrix. The basic individual is defined by a flawless mental matrix, which helps him perceive things as they are.

.

POSTULATE # 20: All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts; it is made up of our thoughts.

COROLLARY: If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him, as the wheel follows the foot of the ox that draws the carriage.

COROLLARY: If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.

This postulate comes directly from Buddha. All unwanted conditions that a person is suffering from, arise from his thoughts. To recover from these thoughts, he must be able to look at them just as they are, without any changes made to them. This is difficult to do because thoughts are altered the moment one interferes with them. Therefore, a person must look at his thoughts from a totally detached viewpoint.
