Theta, MEST and Death

Static implies that Theta and MEST are substances in two different dimensions. Theta is the potential that becomes actual only when manifested in MEST. This manifestation results in motion which is life. In Hubbard’s Theta-MEST theory, theta may separate from MEST and survive as pure potential.

Hubbard postulated the Theta-MEST theory to explain the phenomena of Death. Most of the conscious life leaves the body at the moment of death. So, Hubbard postulated a unit of theta (thetan) leaving the body at death. But life in the organs of the body takes another 14 days to leave completely. So Hubbard postulated a Genetic Entity to explain that. But even when the body disintegrates completely, some motion still remains at the atomic level. This presents an anomaly because if theta leaves the MEST, then no motion should be left at all in MEST.

We find that motion is inherent to MEST at the atomic level and it can never be separated. Motion becomes more sophisticated as MEST becomes more complex at the molecular level. As molecules increase in complexity they act like computers. A DNA molecule is so complex that it can store the whole blue print of the body within itself. The sophisticated motion at the level of the body expresses itself as thought. Throughout this increasing complexity of MEST, the increasingly sophisticated motion cannot be separated from MEST.

So, at the moment of death, most of the sophisticated motion of life ceases, because the overall system of the body breaks down. The remaining motion of the body ceases over the next 14 days as body’s sub-systems break down one by one. Subsequently, any sophisticated motion goes dormant in the DNA molecules. So, we can explain death in terms of an integrated Theta-MEST system gradually breaking down and becoming dormant, instead of “theta leaving MEST.” This is more consistent.

Lets’ look at the phenomenon of exteriorization where, in Hubbard’s model, the thetan leaves the body, and the genetic entity is left in the body to maintain its functions. We may explain the phenomenon of exteriorization in terms of shift in consideration. When the person is interiorized, his attention is, actually, fixated on the body. When this attention suddenly frees itself up, we have exteriorization. The body, actually, extends as an aura around the solid part. The attention units, when freed up, can be focused in the aura away from the solid part. This makes one feel that one is outside the body, when in fact the Theta-MEST remains integrated. This is more consistent than the hypothesis of “theta leaving MEST.”

    Any “reincarnation” is only in terms of DNA programming being passed on to subsequent generations.

    The DNA blueprint not only reproduces similarity of the body, but also the similarity of the mind.

    In the mind, the major unresolved impressions get passed on as recordings. When one contacts such an impression, a “recording” of some incident beyond the current life may come up. This is not a usual memory from the experiences in current life. Rather it is an ancient recording.

    The idea that man has an eternal soul that leaves the body upon death, equates man with his “memories”, or equates him with his relatively indestructible recordings (the unresolved impressions on the mind).

    Even though the above analysis uses Scientology terminology, it is more consistent with Buddhist philosophy than with the Scientology philosophy.
