Knowing How to Know

Know to Mystery Process

Reference: KHTK Version of Scientology

“Know to Mystery” is a scale that parallels the viewpoint scale of “Objectivity to Subjectivity”. One is objective when one knows. One is subjective when one succumbs to speculation upon being confronted with a mystery.

When running this process, you start from the lowest level of “unconsciousness” and work your way up through the levels of waiting, mystery, sex, etc., until you reach the highest level of “knowing”.

At each level you are resolving some sort of fixation. If you meditate at a level for few minutes and find no fixations, simply move to the next level. You go through this whole sequence of processes several times, until all of them are flat.

The first process is,

“Think of some unconsciousness you wouldn’t mind experiencing.”

Unconsciousness is a condition wherein the organism is uncoordinated to greater or lesser degree in its analytical process and motor controls. You meditate on unconsciousness to see if any instances of such condition come up. If so then re-experience those moments, or periods in time. Run the process until it is flat.

The next process is,

“Think of some waiting you wouldn’t mind experiencing.”

Waiting is inactivity or being in a state of repose, until something expected happens. You meditate on waiting to see if any instances of such condition come up. If so then re-experience those moments, or periods in time. Run the process until it is flat.

The next process is,

“Think of some mystery you wouldn’t mind inspecting.”

A mystery is anything that remains unexplained or unknown. The anatomy of Mystery is an inability to predict, followed by terrific confusion and then total blackout. The person just shut it all off and said, “I won’t look at it anymore”. Mystery is the level of always pretending there’s something to know earlier than the Mystery. There really is nothing to know back of a Mystery, except the Mystery itself. In this process you meditate on mystery and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Think of some sex you wouldn’t mind looking at.”

When a person thinks he is not going to survive, he will go into the “sexing-ness band”. If you starve cattle for a while they’ll start to breed, and if you feed them too well, they’ll stop breeding. This shows that the fixation on sex is closely associated with the sense of survival. In this process you meditate on any fixation related to sex for survival and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Think of some eating you wouldn’t mind inspecting.”

Animals eat animals to stay alive. This is their level of knowledge. Here we have fixation on eating and the knowledge associated with it is very condensed. This is what we understand as the dog eat dog world. One has no appreciation of other people and things other than as means for their own survival. In this process you meditate on any fixation related to eating to survive and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Think of some symbols you wouldn’t mind seeing.”

A symbol contains mass, meaning and mobility and it is in motion relative to some orientation point. At this level a person figures with symbols. His sense of knowledge is very literal, and it doesn’t go any deeper than the surface. In this process you meditate on any fixation on symbols and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Think of some thinking you wouldn’t mind observing.”

At this level a person is fixated on thinking.  He is, forever, trying to figure things out. There is no progress because he cannot work or act. This is the “figure-figure” case. In this process you meditate on any fixation on thinking and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Think of some effort you wouldn’t mind observing.”

At this level a person got to touch everything and feel everything before he can know anything. He’ll get a mental image picture of a past incident in order to get an idea of what is happening to him in the present. He cannot observe for himself. In this process you meditate on any fixation on effort and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Think of an emotion you wouldn’t mind observing.”

At this level we have to have knowledge by emotion. A person has all kinds of emotions about things. He knows things by his emotional reaction to them. In this process you meditate on any fixation on emotion and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Think of something you wouldn’t mind looking at.”

At this level we have to look to find out as opposed to simply knowing. In this process you meditate on any fixation on looking and not simply knowing and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Think of something you wouldn’t mind knowing about.”

At this level a person has indirect knowledge of something as opposed to knowing it intimately. In this process you meditate on any fixation on things you only know about indirectly and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Think of something you wouldn’t mind not-knowing.”

There are things that we don’t know anything about and use speculation in their place. Then we start to believe that speculation to be the reality. In this process you meditate on any fixation on knowledge that is speculation only and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Think of something you wouldn’t mind knowing.”

There are things that you are so intimately familiar with that they have become part of your nature. You don’t even notice them. In this process you meditate on things that have become second nature to you and flatten the process.

The Axioms 51 – 58

Reference: KHTK Version of Scientology

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.

This paper presents Scientology Axioms 51 – 58 and the corresponding KHTK versions.

.

AXIOM FIFTY-ONE: 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.

Postulates and live communications are at the Theta end of the spectrum. Condensed energy is at the MEST end of the spectrum. It is silly to say that Theta is senior to MEST because both are part of a natural spectrum of energy. The problem occurs when theta condenses as a fixation.

Theta brings animation to MEST. It can do so only as long as Theta itself does not become fixated.

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.

.

AXIOM FIFTY-TWO: MEST persists and solidifies to the degree that it is not granted life.

MEST is persisting naturally. It stops being animated in the normal manner when Theta becomes fixated. We may call this as MEST becoming “solidified”.

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

.

AXIOM FIFTY-THREE: A stable datum is necessary to the alignment of data.

A stable datum is something already determined, and which is staying stable while other changes are happening around it. The background context acts as the stable data that helps align these changes.

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

.

AXIOM FIFTY-FOUR: 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.

The eight dynamics themselves act as stable datum that helps align data. A stable datum reduces confusion by aligning data. When people agree on the same stable datum then the confusion among them reduces and the interaction improves toward being more sane. One’s culture, religion, beliefs and fixed ideas act as stable data,

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. 

.

AXIOM FIFTY-FIVE: 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.

The cycle of action in this universe is create, survive destroy. It is a very fundamental law of this universe.

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

.

AXIOM FIFTY-SIX: Theta brings order to chaos.

COROLLARY: Chaos brings disorder to theta.

The innate impulse underlying this universe have evolved this universe from raw energy to what we see today. This evolution is definitely in the direction of greater order.

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

.

AXIOM FIFTY-SEVEN: 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.

Order manifests itself as the elements of this universe are increasingly aligned to achieve greater continuity, harmony and consistency. All elements are activated by their innate impulse and have the ability to align.

Alignment is accomplished through communication, control and havingness, where
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.

.

AXIOM FIFTY-EIGHT: 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.

Ability to evaluate relative importances require the ability to recognize differences, similarities and identities and then aligning the data to ensure continuity, harmony and consistency. This is intelligence and judgment respectively.

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

.

The above is a summary of states of being which can be used to create, cause to persist, or destroy.

Having agreed to the mechanics and retaining the agreements, the thetan can yet make innumerable postulates which by their contradiction and complexity, create, cause to persist, and destroy human behavior.

.

AXIOM FORTY-ONE: That into which alter–isness is introduced becomes a problem.

Any time you ALTER-IS something you add another wrinkle to IS-NESS. This may generate or worsen a problem. The universe is not a problem, but its altered view is. We postulate that it was created. We don’t know if that postulate is correct.

When we say that the universe is persisting, it is actually our view of the universe that is persisting. It comes down to examining our considerations about the universe for ALTER-IS. It is the ALTER-IS we are not aware of, which causes a problem.

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

.

AXIOM FORTY-TWO: MEST (matter, energy, space and time) persists because it is a problem.

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

MEST is a problem because it is an altered view of the universe. Scientology postulates that MEST (physical) universe produced by the Theta universe. This could be an ALTER-IS. KHTK, therefore, postulates that Theta-MEST is a single universe.

The physicist has been focusing only the physical aspect of the universe. He has been ignoring the innate impulse that underlies energy. The atom bomb simply releases this impulse in an uncontrolled, destructive manner. The same impulse is better controlled in the computer technology.

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.

.

AXIOM FORTY-THREE: Time is the primary source of untruth.

Time states the untruth of consecutive considerations.

Time denotes duration of energy. This duration increases as the energy condenses from thought to matter. As a result, less condensed energy appears to be in motion compared to more condensed energy. We tend to focus on the duration associated with matter (condensed energy) as the characteristic of time.

It seems that as energy gets more condensed it becomes “interesting”. A less condensed energy is “interested”. When a person becomes more “interesting” he has become more condensed in his considerations. This leads to fixations. The person then becomes a problem.

Consecutive moments appear because of the play of energy of different condensations. A shock in time is a sudden shift in the gradient of energy. With fame, a person may shift suddenly from being interested to becoming interesting. This could act as a shock.

KHTK AXIOM 43: Condensation into fixation is the primary source of untruth.

Fixation condenses consecutive considerations stating them as untruth.

.

AXIOM FORTY-FOUR: Theta, the static, has no location in matter, energy, space or time, but is capable of consideration.

Static is the potential state of the Theta-MEST spectrum. Theta is thought energy part of the spectrum. It has vibration. It is not the same thing as Static. This conflation between Theta and Static is the key error in the hypothesis of Hubbard.

Time is the duration of energy. It is extremely small for thought energy. Considerations do not persist unless they are anomalous with the universe and are waiting to be resolved. A Thetan is the sum total of persisting considerations.

This persistence (fixation) becomes a problem when it is not resolved. A persisting condition of the thetan is fixation on the body. The only way not to be “inside the body” is simply not to have any attention on the body.

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

.

AXIOM FORTY-FIVE: Theta can consider itself to be placed, at which moment it becomes placed, and to that degree a problem.

When Theta is not Static, it is manifesting itself. In other words, its innate impulses are firing away. A thetan can have a problem only when it gets fixated and cannot resolve that fixation. He is then being more interesting than interested.

But if he can be fixated and un-fixated at will then there is no problem. He may be somewhat of a problem only during the period he is fixated.

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

.

AXIOM FORTY-SIX: Theta can become a problem by its considerations, but then becomes MEST.

A problem is to some degree MEST. MEST is a problem.

When Theta is kinetic then, of course, it is energy of very low frequency, and there is corresponding space and time. But there is no matter.

As energy condenses, it starts to acquire properties that make it observable in terms of interactions. That makes it “interesting”. And that which is observing is the un-condensed energy. So, that thought energy is being “interested”.

Un-condensed energy can flow around very rapidly but condensed energy cannot flow or move that fast. That means problem is characterized by lack of motion and flexibility.

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

.

AXIOM FORTY-SEVEN: Theta can resolve problems.

Resolution of problem means reversing the process of condensation. It is lessening the rate of vibration. It is calming down. It is becoming less fixated and more flexible. That process is occurring in the field of computers and robotics; but it is very much in its infancy.

KHTK AXIOM 47: Theta can resolve problems.

.

AXIOM FORTY-EIGHT: Life is a game wherein theta as the static solves the problems of theta as mest.

“Theta as static” is the un-condensed energy. “Theta as MEST” is condensed energy. All energy is connected. The un-condensed energy can de-condense the condensed energy. This is what happens when we help each other.

Energy get more condensed by being interesting and focused on itself. This is called interiorization. It de-condenses by being interested in its environment and focused on others. This is called exteriorization.

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

.

AXIOM FORTY-NINE: To solve any problem it is only necessary to become theta, the solver, rather than theta, the problem.

The SOP 8C works by getting a person to looking at the environment and getting interested in others rather than have attention on oneself and be interesting.

The key point is extroversion. One may even look at oneself from an extroverted viewpoint. He can do that by viewing oneself as a problem in the context of the present time environment and by not getting sucked into the mind in its past.

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

.

AXIOM FIFTY: Theta as MEST must contain considerations which are lies.

MEST is the energy that is persisting because it is condensed and focused on itself. This is the situation with the body. Theta is activating the body through considerations, but these considerations come and go quickly. None of them persist.

But fixations persist. A person who is interiorized has his attention fixed on his body and on the facsimiles in his mind. SOP 8C is simply pulling the person’s attention away from himself and putting it on the environment. As you pull the attention away, these facsimiles show up.

What is actually being objected to are these fixations that are persisting. You may call them lies because they vanish once recognized. The anomaly is persisting in the present. Whatever lie that brought that anomaly is also persisting in the present. That lie brought about a change from the opposite condition.

By repeatedly postulating the original condition we can run out the lie, and the anomaly that has been persisting.

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

The Axioms 31 – 40

Reference: KHTK Version of Scientology

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.

This paper presents Scientology Axioms 31 – 40 and the corresponding KHTK versions.

.

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

Goodness and Badness, beautifulness and ugliness are dichotomies. Per KHTK Logic 7, a dichotomy may be represented on a scale that extends to infinity at either end. Any point on this scale shall have a relative value that may be assessed for consistency. Such a value is, of course, a consideration when assessed by a viewpoint.

An opinion is a view that may be consistent with other data but hasn’t been verified to be totally consistent.

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

.

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

Things in your environment that you haven’t paid close attention to get stacked up in your mind as facsimiles. But if you have observed them closely then they simply get assimilated in your mental matrix and become natural part of your thinking.

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

.

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

AS-IS-NESS improves the IS-NESS. IS-NESS is persisting anyway; but when it is altered by force, then it becomes NOT-IS-NESS. NOT-IS-NESS persists more solidly, and it is difficult to undo. People who have obviously irrational fixed idea, are installed there by force (NOT-IS-NESS), Those irrational ideas are heavily justified and, therefore, cannot be undone with rational arguments.

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

.

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

This is essentially a repeat of Axiom 33.

KHTK AXIOM 34: (Same as Axiom 33).

.

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”.

As AS-IS-NESS is practiced, one climbs the Know-to-Mystery scale towards KNOWINGNESS. Total knowingness is the attribute of the universal viewpoint in which all data is totally assimilated. From this universal viewpoint one sees things as they are. This is the ultimate truth.

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

.

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.

Hubbard defines postulate as “a consideration generated by oneself as a self-created truth”. But such a consideration is true only to the degree it is not only consistent with existence but also explains it. The primary postulate simply brings an understanding of existence, whereas, the second postulate is simply a NOT-IS-NESS that resists the understanding of existence,

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

.

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.

The IS-NESS is persisting according to its nature. Basic truth is the objectivity of seeing things as they are. When all data is known it gets assimilated into a field of continuity, harmony and consistency. The ultimate truth is arrived at this point of knowingness. This point lies at the top of the Know-to-Mystery scale. It is called the Universal Viewpoint. One arrives at a solution only when one sees things as they are.

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

.

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.

For Hubbard, Static is a thing of faith like the “unmoved mover”. The problem with Hubbard’s logic is that the abilities of the Static are persisting. He is not accounting for that. He has not resolved the problem of the Static. What happens when there is no Static?

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.

.

AXIOM 39: Life poses problems for its own solution.

There are problems in life. Some problems get solved. Others persist. The problems that persist are difficult to AS-IS. In other words, in these cases, it is difficult to see what is really there. Something is preventing AS-IS-NESS. That something is a lie and underlying that is a fixation.

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

.

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.

We come across problems that appear unsolvable. We have to start with some postulate to solve such a problem. If a postulate is letting us nowhere close to a solution, then that postulate is not the truth. We need to come up with a different postulate. Such trial and error may finally lead to overcoming some fixation and finding the lie. The truth would be the solution.

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