The Seventh Dynamic: The Oneness of Knowable Universe

Reference: Course on Subject Clearing

To summarize, the Eighth dynamic is the continuous transition from unknowable to knowable through the solving of anomalies. This brings about a continual sense of ecstasy. Here we have the impulse TO KNOW. In terms of knowledge, there is NOTHING ABSOLUTE in the knowable universe because the unknowable is always there.

This brings us to the Seventh Dynamic.

The Seventh Dynamic is the key characteristic of ONENESS of the system of postulates generated to know per the Eighth Dynamic. This characteristic of ONENESS underlies the knowable universe.


Postulate and Reality

postulate is a self-created truth based on which further reasoning is done. To be valid, a postulate must be consistent with all other postulates. 

So, the very first postulate is the ONENESS of the system of postulates. The knowable universe is constructed based on this system of postulates. This renders the universe to be continuous, consistent and harmonious. The continuity provides the sense of dimensions, the consistency provides the sense of truth, and the harmony of dimensions provides the sense of aesthetics. Together they provide the sense of reality of this universe.

Any violation of the integrity of this reality appears as an anomaly, such as, discontinuity (missing data), inconsistency (contradictory data), or disharmony (arbitrary data). All anomalies are resolved by referring to the oneness of postulates.



The beingness of the universe is defined by this system of postulates. The components of beingness are awareness, attention and viewpoint. Awareness comes from the universe being knowable. Attention can focus on any one part of the universe. Viewpoint is the frame of reference of this universe, which springs from the “core” of the system of postulates. This viewpoint may be identified with God. It could be expressed as follows:

The Static Viewpoint


Postulates in Scientology

In Scientology, Hubbard recognizes the depth to which postulates influence a person, but he omits the consideration of oneness. He implies that one’s postulates can be arbitrary. This is not so. All postulates must be consistent with all other postulates to operate naturally.

Hubbard defines postulate as, “It’s just the fellow’s self-determined intention that something happens and it happens.” He further says, “Courage could be summed up in (1) being willing to cause something, and (2) going ahead to achieve the effect one has postulated against any and all odds. There doesn’t happen to be any such thing as failure.”

Hubbard did not see that there is a condition that applies to postulates, that they must be consistent. This consistency determine the universal reality. Hubbard devised the following process for handling a case:

SCN 8-8008: Postulate Processing 

But Hubbard did not fully succeed in handling his own case because the postulate of ONENESS was missing.



The postulate that a person makes on the above Scientology process must be consistent with his other postulates and the natural laws. Only then no effort is required. The natural laws work naturally and so does the postulate that is consistent with them. Going against natural laws is like going against one’s own prior postulates. It is, therefore, very important to know the postulates on which one is operating knowingly or unknowingly. 

Hubbard had a good run as long as his actions were consistent with the natural laws. But then he thought he could simply change the natural laws by his will. That is where he went downhill.

The Seventh dynamic is the key characteristic of ONENESS of the system of postulates generated to understand the Eighth Dynamic. This characteristic of ONENESS underlies the knowable universe.

    The thought and physical substance belongs on the Sixth Dynamic. A thetan is made up of Theta or thought substance. Therefore, a thetan belongs on the Sixth Dynamic. This goes against Hubbard’s postulates, which lack consistency at the top.

    Hubbard made the “physical universe” the enemy of the “theta universe”. His error was not recognizing that THETA and PHYSICAL are aspects of the same universe that is becoming known with the system of postulates one is developing.

    Hubbard developed his own system of postulates deriving a lot of them from the Buddhist system of postulates. But he retained the western idea of God being separate from the world that God creates. This idea contradicts with Buddhist system of postulates. This is where Hubbard became critical of Buddhism and parted ways from it.

    But this also made Hubbard’s system of postulate inconsistent.
