Knowing How to Know

The Unknowables

Unknowable

For the first time in the history of this blog I am going to introduce the Unknowables:

  1. The Unknowables are Unknowables because they are unknowable.

  2. The Unknowables are so obvious that nobody notices them.

  3. The Unknowables have nothing to hide that may attract attention.

  4. The Unknowables have no hidden mysteries.

  5. The Unknowables never clamor to be recognized as Unknowables.

  6. The Unknowables have no permanent self that can be captured and bottled up.

  7. An Unknowable may use a temporary facade for the time being.

  8. Without Unknowables we are left with a Tautological Universe.

  9. One may become suspicious of an Unknowable when one finds “it”  adhering to:

KHTK Axiom #3 and Scientology

Motion

In Scientology we have,

FACTOR 3: The first action of beingness is to assume a viewpoint.

FACTOR 4: The second action of beingness is to extend from the viewpoint, points to view, which are dimension points.

FACTOR 5: Thus there is space created, for the definition of space is: viewpoint of dimension. And the purpose of a dimension point is space and a point of view.

Thus, in Scientology we have the idea of a Cause deciding to be, and then assuming a viewpoint to generate space. A lot of mechanics is assumed here before space comes about.

However, any mechanics involves motion, and if motion is there then space and time are already there. Thus, there seems to be an inherent contradiction in the above hypothesis presented in Scientology.

.

Mindfulness and Science lead us to the following axiom.

KHTK Axiom #3: Awareness of motion is composed of space and time.

Awareness arises and disappears with relative motion. This motion manifests as space and time in our awareness.

Thus, space and time are aspects of motion. It is incorrect to think that motion derives from space and time.

The Factors of Scientology state that a Cause creates space through some mechanics and then, through more mechanics, it brings about motion.

Such hypothesis of Scientology is unnecessarily complicated and questionable.

KHTK Axiom #2 and Scientology

awareness-continuum

Here is another look at Scientology Factor #1.

SCIENTOLOGY FACTOR # 1: Before the beginning was a Cause and the entire purpose of the Cause was the creation of effect.

This Factor assumes that awareness is there before anything else. It is the essential characteristic or Cause that brings about effect, or motion.

This Factor takes awareness for granted as ‘potential’.

.

But we don’t find that to be the case in actual experience. Awareness is related to relative motion as noted in the Theory of Relativity and KHTK Axiom 2.

KHTK Axiom #2: Awareness arises with relative motion, and disappears when there is no relative motion.

Thus, awareness does not precede motion. It is incorrect to take awareness for granted as ‘potential’.

In fact, cause and effect are abstractions gleaned from associations observed among events. The ‘effect’ event is understood as a consequence of the ‘cause’ event.  More correctly, cause is the beginning, and effect is the end, of the same event.

Thus, awareness, and the power to create, is not a requisite for Cause because cause-effect is just an association. There is no such requirement that Cause must exist in isolation before the beginning.

Thus, the assertion that before the beginning was a Cause is questionable.

KHTK Axiom #1 and Scientology


Mover

Here is another look at Scientology Axiom #1:

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.

This axiom is simply another version of ‘unmoved mover’. Is there such a thing as ‘unmoved mover’?

.

Static and kinetic are conditions that are relative to each other as covered by the Theory of Relativity and KHTK Axiom #1:

KHTK Axiom #1: Neither the state of rest, nor the state of motion can be determined to exist in an absolute sense. 

DEFINITION: Absolute means, “Viewed independently; not comparative or relative; ultimate; intrinsic.”

The ‘unmoved mover’ could itself be in motion with respect to something else per the principle of relativity. So, it isn’t really ‘unmoved’.

Thus, it is incorrect to say that a life static has no motion. If it has motion then it also has a wavelength. It will have location in space to the extent it has mass and inertia. It will have location in time to the extent it exists.

About the ‘life static’ having “the ability to postulate and to perceive,” it is a conjecture derived from the existence of motion relative to it.

Thus, the assertion that life is basically static, or a static, is questionable.

EXERCISE: Technique of Mindfulness

Reference Study:

The Context of KHTK

Mindfulness

The 12 Aspects of Mindfulness

.

Mindfulness is attentiveness. The function of mindfulness is to bring clarity to what is being perceived. The 12 aspects of mindfulness are:

  • Observe without expecting anything, or attempting to get an answer.
  • Observe things as they are, without assuming anything.
  • If something is missing do not imagine something else in its place. 
  • If something does not make sense then do not explain it away.
  • Use physical senses as well as mental sense to observe.
  • Let the mind un-stack itself. 
  • Experience fully what is there.  
  • Do not suppress anything.
  • Associate data freely.
  • Do not get hung up on name and form.
  • Contemplate thoughtfully.
  • Let it all be effortless.

EXERCISE

Purpose:

To understand the technique of mindfulness

Training Guideline:

This exercise is best done as a cooperative effort between two people. They alternate in the roles of a student and a guide. The guide assists the student in understanding the materials.

  1. The guide makes the person feel comfortable.

  2. The guide introduces the student to mindfulness using the introduction above.

  3. The guide provides the student with a copy of the document The 12 Aspects of Mindfulness, or helps him access it on a computer.

  4. The guide goes over each aspect of mindfulness with the student one by one.

  5. The student reads the text under each aspect.

  6. The student then does the recommended exercise briefly to gain some familiarity with that aspect.

  7. The guide skillfully handles any questions the student might have.

  8. When the student has understood all the 12 aspects of mindfulness, this exercise is completed.
