Knowing How to Know

The Postulates 11 – 15

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 # 11: From the universal viewpoint all dimensions of the universe naturally appear continuous, harmonious and consistent.

COROLLARY: The continuity, harmony and consistency of observations constitute the background of truth.

The universal viewpoint uses the universal context. There are no hidden pre-conceived notions because everything is out there in the open as part of the universal context. In this context all dimensions of the universe appear just as they are. These dimensions are naturally continuous, harmonious and consistent. Therefore, the continuity, harmony and consistency of observations constitute the background of truth, and any observed discontinuity, disharmony or inconsistency points to missing truth.

.

POSTULATE # 12: We may not know the absolute truth, but truth appears as continuity, harmony and consistency among observations.

COROLLARY: Truth is improved by the practice of AS-IS-NESS.

COROLLARY: Truth is worsened by the practice of ALTER-IS-NESS.

COROLLARY: Truth is denied by the practice of NOT-IS-NESS.

Truth is perceived as continuity, harmony and consistency among observations in an area. Determining the absolute truth may not be possible, but we can definitely restore truth in an area by resolving all discontinuities, disharmonies and inconsistencies present.

AS-IS-NESS is seeing things as they are. It helps us recognize considerations that we have been adding to what is there. As we get rid of such considerations, we improve the level of truth.

ALTER-IS-NESS is using self-generated considerations to explain away anything that does not make sense. As we add such considerations, we worsen the level of truth.

NOT-IS-NESS is simply denying any confusions. It suppresses the discovery of truth.

.

POSTULATE # 13: As a viewpoint individuates from the universal viewpoint, it becomes narrower. This results in gaps in awareness, which the viewpoint fills with self-generated considerations.

COROLLARY: Gaps in awareness point to missing truth.

COROLLARY: Self-generated considerations start to act as filters to hide the gaps.

A viewpoint that has individuated from the universal viewpoint, is no longer looking in the universal context. Thus, many relationships are hidden from it in the narrower context it is using. This results in gaps in awareness, which generate confusions. To handle the confusions the viewpoint generates its own considerations to align data. Such considerations become embedded and start to filter all incoming perceptions. This creates continual ALTER-IS-NESS.

.

POSTULATE # 14: As the viewpoint practices ALTER-IS-NESS, it falls away from the Knowingness of the universal viewpoint through Lookingness, Emotingness, Effortingness, Thinkingness, Symbolizingness, Eatingness, and Sexingness, down to Mystery.

COROLLARY: An individual is below Knowingness somewhere on the Know-to-Mystery scale.

The Know-to-Mystery scale describes the increasing individuation of the viewpoint. As the viewpoint narrows it no longer sees things as they are, and simply holds opinions about them. Thus, many viewpoints come about that hold different opinions about the same thing. They diverge and become more individual as they descend the Know-to-Mystery scale. Any agreement among them is in terms of opinions only.

The viewpoints, however, may rise back toward Knowingness as it practices AS-IS-NESS. The Know to Mystery Process may assist in this recovery. As the viewpoints move up the Know-to-Mystery scale, they start to converge, and agreements are no longer necessary.

.

POSTULATE # 15: The person, in practicing NOT-IS-NESS, brings about the persistence of unwanted existences, and so brings about unreality, which includes forgetfulness, unconsciousness, and other undesirable states.

NOT-IS-NESS is denying reality or the plain truth that is in front of your eyes. This happens when the reality is overwhelming. But one must go back in one’s mind and examine what happened, otherwise one is stuck with unwanted conditions.

A sincere consideration of your experiences may help you realize the extent of the unwanted condition. The process Unwanted Conditions may assist you in your efforts.

.

The Postulates 6 – 10

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 # 6: The universe has inherent awareness, which provides a universal viewpoint.

DEFINITION: A universal viewpoint sees things as they are (AS-IS-NESS). This is the definition of objectivity.

There is nothing else but the universe, therefore, the universe has to be aware of itself. This provides the universe with a viewpoint. This is a special viewpoint that admits every bit of universe to be aware of itself. In other words, everything seen from this viewpoint is just as it is without any alteration due to perception. It is instinctive knowing.

These current postulates are being written from a viewpoint as close to the universal viewpoint as possible.

.

POSTULATE # 7: Dualities—such as, physical-spiritual, static-dynamic, cause-effect—all describe different dimensions of the universe. A dimension describes dimension points, which are points to view.

DEFINITION: Each dimension may be presented as a continuous scale that extends to infinity in either direction.

DEFINITION: Each dimension point may be presented as a value on a dimension scale.

Duality appears throughout the universe; but when a duality is observed closely it reduces to a continuously varying characteristic that can be represented by a scale. For example, the duality hot-cold reduces to the varying characteristic of temperature that is commonly represented by a scale. But dualities, such as, good-evil, right-wrong, and truth-falsehood may also be represented by a continuous scale.

Each duality, therefore, provides a dimension of the universe. These dimensions may be used to grade what we see. These things then become dimension points. All dimension points are relative. There are no absolute dimension points.

.

POSTULATE # 8: The spiritual-physical duality forms the two ends of the dimension of energy frequency.

DEFINITION: Spiritual is the energy of low frequency that expresses the essential characteristics of something.

DEFINITION: Physical is the energy of high frequency that expresses the outer form of something.

COROLLARY: The spiritual and physical aspects are integrated in all things, and not separate.

The spiritual and physical elements are not separate, for example, as God and the physical universe, as believed by many followers of the Abrahamic religions. These two elements are actually well integrated, and they exist in everything. This is in line with the teachings of the Vedas and Buddhism. In Scientology, this duality is presented as Theta-MEST theory, where they form the two ends of the spectrum of motion. However, Scientology considers MEST to be the product of Theta, which is not implied here. One end of a scale cannot be the product of the other end.

The Sanskrit word “dharma” expresses the spiritual element as the central characteristic of something; for example, the dharma of the sun is to shine and give warmth. The physical element, in contrast, is the “outer form”. The outer form of the sun is described in the subject of astronomy. In a human being, the spiritual element is the ability to observe and think (the mind); and the physical element is the body including the brain.

.

POSTULATE # 9: The static-dynamic duality forms the two ends of the dimension of energy expression.

DEFINITION: Static is the state of no motion, where energy is potential and not expressed.

DEFINITION: Dynamic is the state of varying motion, where energy is kinetic and being expressed.

COROLLARY: The universe continually oscillates from the static to dynamic and back.

Energy is conserved in this universe. It cannot just disappear. It is either out there in a kinetic form expressing itself or being held back without motion in a potential form. This can be observed in the swing of a pendulum. Maximum potential energy appears in a static form at either end of the swing of the pendulum. Maximum kinetic energy exists at the middle of the swing of the pendulum in either direction.

As the static condition is reached at the end of a cycle, it is disturbed immediately with the start of the next cycle. So, the state of static may exist only momentarily for the Universe. At that point the Universe shall consist of the maximum potential that is about to express itself in infinity of ways. Scientology considers “Static” to be the ultimate spiritual entity possessing infinite ability. Same idea exists in Abrahamic religions in the form of God. Science looks at it as the point just before Big Bang. None of this, however, is implied here. Static is not some one-time generator of the universe. The cycle of one static state to the next may be compared to the “Cycle of Brahma” of the Vedas.

.

POSTULATE # 10: The Cause-effect duality forms the two ends of the dimension of energy flow.

DEFINITION: Cause is the FROM point of energy flow.

DEFINITION: Effect is the TO point of energy flow.

COROLLARY: The innate impulse of energy flows in the direction from cause to effect.

Cause is the beginning, and effect is the end of associations of events in time. This is the direction in which the impulse of energy flows. This flow could be very simple in a straight line, or very complex by branching out in myriads of ways. This may be visualized in any machine, more comically, in Rube Goldberg machines.

When we look at Cause-effect as a dimension that extends to infinity in either direction, we realize that neither an absolute cause nor an absolute effect can be determined. God in Abrahamic religions, and “Static” in Scientology, are believed to be absolute causes. But that is not implied here.

What is considered as the ‘Law of Karma’ of the Vedas, is part of this dimension. Karma is essentially a very complex cycle of action that is moving forward towards its completion in slow motion. There is a sense of inevitability associated with it. If that cycle is hindered, then all kind of repercussions result from it. Again, those repercussions force the movement of that cycle toward its completion. This has been expressed similarely in other religions, such as, ‘As you sow so shall you reap’.

Summary of Axioms

Reference: The Axioms

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.

.

The Axioms

The KHTK version of axioms is meant to bring alignment between Scientology and Buddhism.

.

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.

KHTK AXIOM 1: Life is a Theta-MEST system of energy animated by innate impulse.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 2: The static is capable of considerations, postulates, and opinions.

KHTK AXIOM 2: The innate impulse of life evolves into considerations, postulates and opinions.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 3: Space, energy, objects, form and time are the result of considerations made and/or agreed upon or not by the static and are perceived solely because the static considers that it can perceive them.

KHTK AXIOM 3: Space, energy, objects, form and time are postulates that help us assimilate, understand and explain the reality reaching us through our senses.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 4: Space is a viewpoint of dimension.

KHTK AXIOM 4: Space describes the dimensions of energy.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 5: Energy consists of postulated particles in space.

KHTK AXIOM 5: Energy describes the innate substance of the universe.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 6: Objects consist of grouped particles and solids.

KHTK AXIOM 6: Objects consist of grouped particles of condensed energy.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 7: Time is basically a postulate that space and particles will persist.

KHTK AXIOM 7: Time describes the duration of energy.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 8: The apparency of time is the change of position of particles in space.

KHTK AXIOM 8: Time is sensed by the motion of particles in space. The faster is the motion, the faster is time passing.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 9: Change is the primary manifestation of time.

KHTK AXIOM 9: Change is the primary manifestation of time.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 10: The highest purpose in this universe is the creation of an effect.

KHTK AXIOM 10: The highest purpose in the universe is to evolve by taking full responsibility.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 11: The considerations resulting in conditions of existence are fourfold.

(a) AS-IS-NESS is the condition of immediate creation without persistence, and is the condition of existence which exists at the moment of creation and the moment of destruction, and is different from other considerations in that it does not contain survival.


(b) ALTER-IS-NESS is the consideration which introduces change and therefore time and persistence, into an AS-IS-NESS to obtain persistency.


(c) IS-NESS is an apparency of existence brought about by the continuous alteration of an AS-IS-NESS. This is called, when agreed upon, Reality.


(d) NOT-IS-NESS is the effort to handle IS-NESS by reducing its condition through the use of force. It is an apparency and cannot entirely vanquish an IS-NESS.

KHTK AXIOM 11: The considerations resulting in conditions of existence are fourfold.

(a) AS-IS-NESS is seeing things as they are. It helps one resolve anomalies in IS-NESS by eliminating arbitrary considerations. It moves the viewpoint toward greater objectivity.

(b) ALTER-IS-NESS is looking through arbitrary considerations and getting an altered viewpoint of IS-NESS. As more arbitrary considerations are added, it moves the viewpoint toward greater subjectivity.

(c) IS-NESS is the view of existence as seen through one’s considerations.

(d) NOT-IS-NESS is the denial of the anomalies in IS-NESS and insisting on one’s arbitrary considerations and even enforcing them.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 12: The primary condition of any universe is that two spaces, energies, or objects must not occupy the same space. when this condition is violated (perfect duplicate) the apparency of any universe or any part there-of is nulled.

KHTK AXIOM 12: A “perfect duplicate” means bringing perfect alignment among the components of a Theta-MEST system such that all repulsive forces vanish.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 13: The cycle of action of the physical universe is: create, survive (persist), destroy.

KHTK AXIOM 13: The cycle of action of the form of the universe is: create, survive (persist), destroy.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 14: Survival is accomplished by ALTER-IS-NESS and NOT-IS-NESS, by which is gained the persistency known as time.

KHTK AXIOM 14: Survival is persistence of IS-NESS. It improves as we practice AS-IS-NESS. It deteriorates as we practice ALTER-ISNESS and NOT-IS-NESS.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 15: Creation is accomplished by the postulation of an AS-IS-NESS.

KHTK AXIOM 15: Survival is improved by the AS-IS-NESS of difficulties with creative solutions.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 16: Complete destruction is accomplished by the postulation of the AS-IS-NESS of any existence and the parts thereof.

KHTK AXIOM 16: Complete destruction of difficulties is accomplished by the postulation of creative solutions through AS-IS-NESS of the situation.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 17: The static, having postulated AS-IS-NESS, then practices ALTER-IS-NESS, and so achieves the apparency of IS-NESS and so obtains reality.

KHTK AXIOM 17: IS-NESS appears when static changes to kinetic at the beginning of a cycle. AS-IS-NESS then improves, and ALTER-IS-NESS then worsens that IS-NESS. This is reality.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 18: The static, in practicing NOT-IS-NESS, brings about the persistence of unwanted existences, and so brings about unreality, which includes forgetfulness, unconsciousness and other undesirable states.

KHTK AXIOM 18: The person, in practicing NOT-IS-NESS, brings about the persistence of unwanted existences, and so brings about unreality, which includes forgetfulness, unconsciousness, and other undesirable states.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 19: Bringing the static to view as–is any condition devaluates that condition.

KHTK AXIOM 19: Bringing the person to view AS-IS any condition devaluates that condition.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 20: Bringing the static to create a perfect duplicate causes the vanishment of any existence or part thereof.

Definition: A perfect duplicate is an additional creation of the object, its energy and space, in its own space, in its own time using its own energy. this violates the condition that two objects must not occupy the same space, and causes the vanishment of the object.

KHTK AXIOM 20: Bringing a person to create a perfect duplicate causes the vanishment of any and all anomalies from his understanding.

Definition: Anomalies are discontinuities, disharmonies and inconsistencies.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 21: Understanding is composed of affinity, reality and communication.

KHTK AXIOM 21: Understanding (AS-IS-NESS) has the aspects of affinity, reality and communication.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 22: The practice of not-isness reduces understanding.

KHTK AXIOM 22: The practice of not-is-ness reduces understanding.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 23: The static has the capability of total knowingness. Total knowingness would consist of total ARC.

KHTK AXIOM 23: A person has the capability of total knowingness of the universal viewpoint. Total knowingness would consist of total ARC.

Definition: The universal viewpoint views things as they are without filter. In other words, it is totally objective.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 24: Total ARC would bring about the vanishment of all mechanical conditions of existence.

KHTK AXIOM 24: Total ARC would bring about the total objectivity of the universal viewpoint.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 25: Affinity is a scale of attitudes which falls away from the coexistence of static, through the interpositions of distance and energy, to create identity, down to close proximity but mystery.

By the practice of Is-ness (Beingness) and Not-is-ness (refusal to Be) individuation progresses from the Knowingness of complete identification down through the introduction of more and more distance and less and less duplication, through Lookingness, Emotingness, Effortingness, Thinkingness, Symbolizingness, Eatingness, Sexingness, and so through to not-Knowingness (Mystery). Until the point of Mystery is reached, some communication is possible, but even at Mystery an attempt to communicate continues. Here we have, in the case of an individual, a gradual falling away from the belief that one can assume a complete Affinity down to the conviction that all is a complete Mystery. Any individual is somewhere on this Know-to-Mystery scale. The original Chart of Human Evaluation was the Emotion section of this scale.

KHTK AXIOM 25: Affinity is a scale of attitudes which falls away from the objectivity of the universal viewpoint, through the interpositions of distance and subjectivity, to create identity, down to close proximity but mystery.

By the practice of ALTER-IS-NESS individuation progresses from complete objectivity of Knowingness down, with the introduction of more and more distance and less and less duplication, through Lookingness, Emotingness, Effortingness, Thinkingness, Symbolizingness, Eatingness, Sexingness, and so through to not-Knowingness (Mystery). Until the point of Mystery is reached, some communication is possible, but even at Mystery an attempt to communicate continues. Here we have, in the case of an individual, a gradual falling away from the belief that one can assume a complete Affinity down to the conviction that all is a complete Mystery. Any individual is somewhere on this Know-to-Mystery scale.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 26: Reality is the agreed-upon apparency of existence.

KHTK AXIOM 26: Reality among people is based on what they agree upon. The actual reality, however, is perceived from the viewpoint of Knowingness.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 27: An actuality can exist for one individually, but when it is agreed with by others it can be said to be a reality.

The anatomy of Reality is contained in Is-ness, which is composed of As-is-ness and Alter-is-ness. Is-ness is an apparency, it is not an Actuality. The Actuality is As-is-ness altered so as to obtain a persistency. Unreality is the consequence and apparency of the practice of Not-is-ness.

KHTK AXIOM 27: One can have his own personal reality, but when it is agreed with by others it becomes a common reality.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 28: Communication is the consideration and action of impelling an impulse or particle from source-point across a distance to receipt-point, with the intention of bringing into being at the receipt-point a duplication and understanding of that which emanated from the source-point.

The formula of Communication is: Cause, Distance, Effect, with Intention, Attention and Duplication WITH UNDERSTANDING. The component parts of Communication are Consideration, Intention, Attention, Cause, Source-point, Distance, Effect, Receipt-point, Duplication, Understanding, the Velocity of the impulse or particle, Nothingness or Somethingness. A non-communication consists of Barriers. Barriers consist of Space, Interpositions (such as walls and screens of fast-moving particles), and Time. A communication, by definition, does not need to be two-way. When a communication is returned, the formula is repeated, with the receipt-point now becoming a source point and the former source-point now becoming a receipt-point.

KHTK AXIOM 28: Communication is a co-action between source and receipt-points like two smoothly meshing gears, where the impulse passing back and forth is in complete harmony with the considerations and intentions involved.  

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 29: In order to cause an as-is-ness to persist, one must assign other authorship to the creation than his own. otherwise, his view of it would cause its vanishment.

Any space, energy, form, object, individual, or physical universe condition can exist only when an alteration has occurred of the original As-is-ness so as to prevent a casual view from vanishing it. In other words, anything which is persisting must contain a “lie” so that the original consideration is not completely duplicated.

KHTK AXIOM 29: IS-NESS persists by its very nature, and so does any change to it. When other authorship is assigned to a change, one loses the ability to change it back.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 30: The general rule of auditing is that anything which is unwanted and yet persists must be thoroughly viewed, at which time it will vanish.

If only partially viewed, its intensity, at least, will decrease.

KHTK AXIOM 30: The general rule of auditing is that anything which is unwanted and yet persists must be thoroughly viewed, at which time it will vanish.

If only partially viewed, its intensity, at least, will decrease.

.

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

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

.

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

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

.

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

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

.

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

KHTK AXIOM 34: (Same as Axiom 33).

.

SCIENTOLOGY 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”.

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

.

SCIENTOLOGY 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.

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

.

SCIENTOLOGY 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.

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

.

SCIENTOLOGY 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.

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.

.

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

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

.

SCIENTOLOGY 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.

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

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 41: That into which alter–isness is introduced becomes a problem.

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

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 42: MEST (matter, energy, space and time) persists because it is a problem.

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

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.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 43: Time is the primary source of untruth.

Time states the untruth of consecutive considerations.

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

Fixation condenses consecutive considerations stating them as untruth.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 44: Theta, the static, has no location in matter, energy, space or time, but is capable of consideration.

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

.

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

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

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 46: Theta can become a problem by its considerations, but then becomes MEST.

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

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

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 47: Theta can resolve problems.

KHTK AXIOM 47: Theta can resolve problems.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 48: Life is a game wherein theta as the static solves the problems of theta as mest.

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

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 49: To solve any problem it is only necessary to become theta, the solver, rather than theta, the problem.

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

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 50: Theta as MEST must contain considerations which are lies.

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

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 51: 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.

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.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 52: MEST persists and solidifies to the degree that it is not granted life.

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

.

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

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

.

SCIENTOLOGY 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. This defines sanity.

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. 

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 55: 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.

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

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 56: Theta brings order to chaos.

COROLLARY: Chaos brings disorder to theta.

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

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 57: 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.

KHTK AXIOM 57: Order manifests when communication, control and havingness are available to theta.

.

SCIENTOLOGY AXIOM 58: 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.

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

The Factors

(Summation of the considerations and examinations of the human spirit and the material universe completed between A.D. 1923 and 1953.)

These comments are meant to bring alignment between Scientology and Buddhism.

.

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

KHTK FACTOR # 1: Existence is simply there. Cause-effect is a dimension of existence.

.

FACTOR # 2. In the beginning and forever is the decision and the decision is TO BE.

KHTK FACTOR # 2: Existence is simply being. It has neither a beginning nor end.

.

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

KHTK FACTOR # 3: Viewpoint is a natural aspect of existence.

.

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

KHTK FACTOR # 4: Existence provides infinite dimension points to view.

.

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.

KHTK FACTOR # 5: Space is the extent of existence.

.

FACTOR # 6. The action of a dimension point is reaching and withdrawing.

KHTK FACTOR # 6: Dimension points move in and out of awareness of the viewpoint.

.

FACTOR # 7. And from the viewpoint to the dimension points there are connection and interchange. Thus new dimension points are made. Thus there is communication.

KHTK FACTOR # 7: From viewpoint, the dimension points are viewed; and the follow up generates new dimension points. Thus, there is communication.

.

FACTOR # 8. And thus there is light.

KHTK FACTOR # 8: And thus, there is perception.

.

FACTOR # 9. And thus there is energy.

KHTK FACTOR # 9: And thus, there is activity.

.

FACTOR # 10. And thus there is life.

KHTK FACTOR # 10: And thus, life evolves.

.

FACTOR # 11. But there are other viewpoints and these viewpoints out-thrust points to view. And there comes about an interchange amongst viewpoints; but the interchange is never otherwise than in terms of exchanging dimension points.

KHTK FACTOR # 11: Multiplicity of viewpoints come about from a narrowing of the universal viewpoint when dimension points are not viewed as they are. Thus, there are opinions of dimension points, and they are interchanged among viewpoints.

.

FACTOR # 12. The dimension point can be moved by the viewpoint, for the viewpoint, in addition to creative ability and consideration, possesses volition and potential independence of action; and the viewpoint, viewing dimension points, can change in relation to its own or other dimension points or viewpoints. Thus comes about all the fundamentals there are to motion.

KHTK FACTOR # 12: The fundamentals of motion come from the innate impulse of energy and the continuity, harmony and consistency of existence. These fundamentals generate relationships among the creativity, volition and independence of viewpoints with the complex motion of dimension points.

.

FACTOR # 13. The dimension points are each and every one, whether large or small, solid. And they are solid solely because the viewpoints say they are solid.

KHTK FACTOR # 13: The dimension points, each and every one, are real, continuous, harmonious and consistent. But they may be viewed as the viewpoints consider them to be.

.

FACTOR # 14. Many dimension points combine into larger gases, fluids or solids. Thus there is matter. But the most valued point is admiration, and admiration is so strong its absence alone permits persistence.

KHTK FACTOR # 14: The dimension points combine to generate more complex forms. Admiration is appreciating these forms for what they are. In absence of admiration the altered perception persists.

.

FACTOR # 15. The dimension point can be different from other dimension points and thus can possess an individual quality. And many dimension points can possess a similar quality, and others can possess a similar quality unto themselves. Thus comes about the quality of classes of matter.

KHTK FACTOR # 15: The dimension points have similar and different qualities. Thus, we have classes of energy and matter with their own quality.

.

FACTOR # 16. The viewpoint can combine dimension points into forms and the forms can be simple or complex and can be at different distances from the viewpoints and so there can be combinations of form. And the forms are capable of motion and the viewpoints are capable of motion and so there can be motion of forms.

KHTK FACTOR # 16: The dimension points through their innate impulses are capable of self-animation. They combine into simple and complex forms, and these forms combine further while retaining their self-animation. The viewpoints belong to the forms, but subjectivity makes them appear to be separate.

.

FACTOR # 17. And the opinion of the viewpoint regulates the consideration of the forms, their stillness or their motion, and these considerations consist of assignment of beauty or ugliness to the forms and these considerations alone are art.

KHTK FACTOR # 17: The forms have evolved from minerals to plants to animals to humans and their activities. Therein lies the art. But human viewpoints add their colorful considerations of beauty and ugliness to it.

.

FACTOR # 18. It is the opinion of the viewpoints that some of these forms should endure. Thus there is survival.

KHTK FACTOR # 18: The human viewpoint sees survival and suffering among these forms, and it endeavors to settle it through prayer, meditation, art, and science. Thus, there is evolution.

.

FACTOR # 19. And the viewpoint can never perish; but the form can perish.

KHTK FACTOR # 19: Neither the viewpoint, nor the dimension points and their forms, can completely perish. But they can change over a wide range.

.

FACTOR # 20. And the many viewpoints, interacting, become dependent upon one another’s forms and do not choose to distinguish completely the ownership of dimension points and so comes about a dependency upon the dimension points and upon the other viewpoints.

KHTK FACTOR # 20: And many viewpoints, interacting, come to agree on their self-generated considerations (fixed ideas, beliefs and prejudices). And so, they become dependent on such agreements with other viewpoints.

.

FACTOR # 21. From this comes a consistency of viewpoint of the interaction of dimension points and this, regulated, is TIME.

KHTK FACTOR # 21: TIME is duration of things measured against the infinite duration of existence. Universal viewpoint, and the agreements among subjective viewpoints, provide a consistent view of time.

.

FACTOR # 22. And there are universes.

KHTK FACTOR # 22: There is only one objective universe; but there are as many “subjective universes” as there are subjective viewpoints.

.

FACTOR # 23. The universes, then, are three in number: the universe created by one viewpoint, the universe created by every other viewpoint, the universe created by the mutual action of viewpoints which is agreed to be upheld—the physical universe.

KHTK FACTOR # 23: The universes “created” by all viewpoints and the agreed-upon “physical universe” converge to an objective universe, when all anomalies (discontinuity, disharmony and inconsistency) in perception are resolved.

.

FACTOR # 24. And the viewpoints are never seen. And the viewpoints consider more and more that the dimension points are valuable. And the viewpoints try to become the anchor points and forget that they can create more points and space and forms. Thus comes about scarcity. And the dimension points can perish and so the viewpoints assume that they, too, can perish.

KHTK FACTOR # 24: The viewpoint is defined by its ability to perceive the dimension points. Absence of clarity leads to dependence on self-generated considerations. Letting go of such considerations may feel like the end of the viewpoint.

.

FACTOR # 25. Thus comes about death.

KHTK FACTOR # 25: Complete introversion on “self-generated considerations” is equivalent to the death of viewpoint.

.

FACTOR # 26. The manifestations of pleasure and pain, of thought, emotion and effort, of thinking, of sensation, of affinity, reality, communication, of behaviour and being are thus derived and the riddles of our universe are apparently contained and answered herein.

KHTK FACTOR # 26: All human travails and the riddles of the universe derive from the narrow and individualistic viewpoints. They resolve as we broaden our viewpoint to the universal viewpoint.

.

FACTOR # 27. There is beingness, but Man believes there is only becomingness.

KHTK FACTOR # 27: There is beingness of universal viewpoint, but Man believes only in the becomingness of individual viewpoints.

.

FACTOR # 28. The resolution of any problem posed hereby is the establishment of viewpoints and dimension points, the betterment of condition and concourse amongst dimension points, and, thereby, viewpoints, and the remedy of abundance or scarcity in all things, pleasant or ugly, by the rehabilitation of the ability of the viewpoint to assume points of view, and create and uncreate, neglect, start, change and stop dimension points of any kind at the determinism of the viewpoint. Certainty in all three universes must be regained, for certainty, not data, is knowledge.

KHTK FACTOR # 28: The resolution of any human condition requires the broadening of the individual viewpoint toward the universal viewpoint. This means giving up self-generated considerations that are preventing one from seeing things as they are.

.

FACTOR # 29. In the opinion of the viewpoint, any beingness, any thing, is better than no thing, any effect is better than no effect, any universe better than no universe, any particle better than no particle, but the particle of admiration is best of all.

KHTK FACTOR # 29: The narrow individuality of the viewpoint puts separation between observer and the observed; whereas, admiration brings the observer and the observed closer together. The particle of admiration, therefore, is best of all.

.

FACTOR # 30. And above these things there might be speculation only. And below these things there is the playing of the game. But these things which are written here Man can experience and know. And some may care to teach these things and some may care to use them to assist those in distress and some may desire to employ them to make individuals and organizations more able and so give to Earth a culture of which we can be proud.

KHTK FACTOR # 30: This revision of Hubbard’s pioneering work is an attempt to make it consistent with the objectivity of Vedas and Buddhism. Let’s hope that it inspires new powerful techniques for the resolution of the human condition.

FINAL COMMENTS

Hubbard’s philosophy is based on the concept of CAUSE, which is same as the Western concept of God. Buddhism is based on the concept of EMPTINESS, which is same as the Vedic concept of Brahma (Neti neti). This brings up a contradiction that needs to be resolved.

The goal of Scientology is to gain super abilities for the self in this world. The goal of Buddhism, however, is Nirvana, which is to move beyond one’s worldly self to become one with the universal self. Basically, this is attaining the universal viewpoint of objectivity.

Hubbard misunderstood Nirvana to mean “merging with the MEST universe”, which, in other words, means “to become part of a vast machinery”. But this is not what Nirvana is.

Nirvana is the attaining of objectivity of the universal viewpoint so that one may contribute to the natural evolution in a continuous, harmonious and consistent manner.

The Factors 26 – 30

Project: A Course on Hubbard’s Factors

The original Scientology Factors are a summation of the considerations and examinations of the human spirit and the material universe, which was completed between A.D. 1923 and 1953 by L. Ron Hubbard.

The KHTK Factors are a result of the subject clearing of Buddhism, Scientology and philosophy in general. 

.

FACTOR # 26. The manifestations of pleasure and pain, of thought, emotion and effort, of thinking, of sensation, of affinity, reality, communication, of behavior and being are thus derived and the riddles of our universe are apparently contained and answered herein.

There is no thinking when one is objectively observing things as they are. It is the view that is thinking. Similarly, it is the view that contains the emotions, sensations and feelings. In reaction to this view come about behaviors, such as, communication and effort.

Therefore, additional thoughts, emotions, sensations and feelings are generated as reactions only. If there are no reactions, nothing beyond the view is generated, and view starts resolving itself. As the view is simplified, so are the thoughts, emotions and effort in them.

There is no thinking really. All there is, is the view. Affinity, reality and sensations are part of what is viewed. Any communication simply flows naturally. The key to life is fully understanding what is there. Therein lies ultimate truth, awareness and bliss.

KHTK FACTOR # 26: All human travails and the riddles of the universe derive from the narrow and individualistic viewpoints. They resolve as we broaden our viewpoint to the universal viewpoint.

.

FACTOR # 27. There is beingness, but Man believes there is only becomingness.

We find Man in a state in which he is identifying himself with his subjective viewpoint. In other words, he entertains fixed ideas, prejudices and beliefs, and he is fixated on his view of things. Salvation lies in letting go of such fixations and arriving at the objectivity of the universal viewpoint.

But it is very hard to let go of such fixations in the absence of better clarity of view. This is possible, however with subject clearing of the scriptures of one’s own religion as well as those of other religions. Overall, it requires a wide study of life and the resolution of the contradictions, doubts and perplexities thus found.

KHTK FACTOR # 27: There is beingness of universal viewpoint, but Man believes only in the becomingness of individual viewpoints.

.

FACTOR # 28. The resolution of any problem posed hereby is the establishment of viewpoints and dimension points, the betterment of condition and concourse amongst dimension points, and, thereby, viewpoints, and the remedy of abundance or scarcity in all things, pleasant or ugly, by the rehabilitation of the ability of the viewpoint to assume points of view, and create and uncreate, neglect, start, change and stop dimension points of any kind at the determinism of the viewpoint. Certainty in all three universes must be regained, for certainty, not data, is knowledge.

The resolution of any human condition requires the broadening of the viewpoint toward the objectivity of universal viewpoint. This means noticing the anomalies (inconsistencies, disharmonies and discontinuities) because of one’s individual viewpoint. This doesn’t mean giving up one’s individuality and becoming one with universe. This means giving up self-generated considerations that are preventing one from seeing things as they are.

There may appear abundance or scarcity in all things, pleasant or ugly, but what really needs to be remedied is the ability of the viewpoint to examine the fixations and letting them unwind naturally. The individual viewpoint must be expanded toward becoming a universal viewpoint.

KHTK FACTOR # 28: The resolution of any human condition requires the broadening of the individual viewpoint toward the universal viewpoint. This means giving up self-generated considerations that are preventing one from seeing things as they are.

.

FACTOR # 29. In the opinion of the viewpoint, any beingness, any thing, is better than no thing, any effect is better than no effect, any universe better than no universe, any particle better than no particle, but the particle of admiration is best of all.

The universal viewpoint represents the beingness of the universe as “observer”. The universal dimension points represent the beingness of the universe as “observed”. At the level of the universe there is no distinction between the “observer” and “observed”.  As viewpoint narrows the objective view of dimension points is increasingly replaced by the subjective view of opinions. The “observer” then appears to be separate from the “observed”.

As long as there is viewpoint, there is also beingness and there is also universe and particles. Admiration is the appreciation of dimension points for what they are. It brings the observer and the observed together as one. It is, therefore, the most valuable particle.

KHTK FACTOR # 29: The narrow individuality of the viewpoint puts separation between observer and the observed; whereas, admiration brings the observer and the observed closer together. The particle of admiration, therefore, is best of all.

.

FACTOR # 30. And above these things there might be speculation only. And below these things there is the playing of the game. But these things which are written here Man can experience and know. And some may care to teach these things and some may care to use them to assist those in distress and some may desire to employ them to make individuals and organizations more able and so give to Earth a culture of which we can be proud.

In these Factors, Hubbard seem to be addressing the human condition just as Buddha did. But he favors the “individuality” of narrow viewpoints and ends up disparaging the attainment of universal viewpoint, which was embodied in the goal of Nirvana of Buddha.

Hubbard focuses on those things that, according to him, can be experienced and known. This may be true as he shares the subjective individuality of the western culture. But this subjectivity flies in the face of the objectivity of Vedas and Buddhism that is the characteristic of the eastern civilization.

Hubbard, however, has used modern scientific approach in his subject of Scientology that is valuable. These Factors simply need to be aligned with the fundamental objectivity of Vedas and Buddhism. I have attempted to do this in my proposed revision of the Factors.

KHTK FACTOR # 30: This revision of Hubbard’s pioneering work is an attempt to make it consistent with the objectivity of Vedas and Buddhism. Let’s hope that it inspires new powerful techniques for the resolution of the human condition.
