The Postulates

Reference: Disturbance Theory


The Disturbance Theory aims at clarifying the fundamentals of Physics. This theory consists of a sequence of “papers” that attempt to clarify the basic concepts.

The Disturbance theory is based on the following postulates.

Postulate #1:

The reference point that allows ultimate objectivity in viewing the universe is EMPTINESS.

The ultimate reference point of EMPTINESS is inherently understood because it is empty of all preconceived notions and phenomena. It does not require another reference point for its definition. It is what it is.

Emptiness is not a phenomenon, just like zero is not a value. From this reference point it is possible to acquire an objective view of any phenomena.

Postulate #2:

The UNIVERSE is intrinsically consistent, harmonious and continuous.

This universe is a continuum of infinity of dimensions of all things physical and metaphysical. All these dimensions are consistent, harmonious and continuous with each other.

The criteria of consistency, harmony and continuity forms the basis of all logic. Any inconsistency, disharmony and discontinuity poses an anomaly underlying which lies a more basic truth.


Here are some definitions that this book uses.

Science = a branch of knowledge or study dealing with a body of facts or truths systematically arranged and showing the operation of general laws

Physics = the science that deals with matter, energy, motion, and force.

Mechanics = the branch of physics that deals with the action of forces on bodies and with motion, comprised of kinetics, statics, and kinematics.

Kinetics = the branch of mechanics that deals with the actions of forces in producing or changing the motion of masses.

Statics = the branch of mechanics that deals with bodies at rest or forces in equilibrium.

Kinematics = the branch of mechanics that deals with pure motion, without reference to the masses or forces involved in it.

Body = an identifiable collection of matter.

Matter = a substance.

Substance = that of which a thing consists.

Thing = object of awareness.


The Laws of Metaphysics


Previous: Objective View of God
Next: Mindfulness Approach

Here are the laws of metaphysics that I have been fortunate enough to pry them apart from knowledge already available.

Law # 1 – The fundamental principle of this universe is a natural precipitation of order out of chaos. This order manifests as the universe.

NOTE: The Law # 1 is looked upon as “God” in most religions. With the knowledge of physics that we now have, we may state:

Corollary # 1a – The nature of chaos is space. The property of space is awareness.

Corollary # 1b – The order precipitates as electromagnetic patterns. The property of patterns is consciousness.

Corollary # 1c – This precipitaion of order is irreversible.

Law # 2 – The order precipitates as a basic pattern, which then forms increasingly complex patterns.

Note: The Law # 2 is how evolution starts. We may further state:

Corollary # 2a – The electromagnetic patterns are  described by a spectrum of frequencies. At the lower end of this spectrum are radio waves, and at the higher end are gamma rays.

Corollary # 2b – Below radio waves is space, and above gamma rays is matter. In between there are increasing frequencies that have properties of feelings, perceptions, emotions and sensations.

Corollary # 2c – The electromagnetic patterns condense as matter at high frequencies.

Law # 3 – A pattern is made up of movement. Underlying the movement there is nothing motionless. Anything motionless is relative only. 

NOTE: Everything in this universe is changing whether rapidly or very slowly. There is nothing that is absolutely permanent.

Corollary # 3a – The chaos, of course, is unsettled and every bit impermanent. Any settling starts in the form of precipitating patterns.

Corollary # 3b – Original patterns are very light and ephemeral. Only as they evolve toward greater complexity that they tend to become more permanent.

Corollary # 3c – Thus the universe does not start out with anything eternal.

Law # 4 – Patterns mix, interfere, resonate, condense and generate new patterns. Thus there is evolution.

Corollary # 4a – Frequencies in gamma region generate electrons. Still higher frequencies collapse into nucleons that have property of mass. Nucleons in a nucleus surrounded by electrons form a pattern called atoms.

Corollary # 4b –  The atoms represents basic identities that are arranged in a periodic table of lighter to heavier atoms.

Corollary # 4c – Atoms combine to form molecules from simple to very complex. Each of these molecules has an identity with unique properties.

Law # 5 – Basic patterns are continuous but have discrete frequencies. These patterns evolve into discrete solid forms. But underlying all discrete forms there is a basic continuity.

Corollary # 5a – The discrete property of forms evolves from frequencies in the form of resonances, particles, groups of particles and discrete contexts of different types.

Corollary # 5b – All discrete parts of the universe are connected at some basic level.

Law # 6 – Patterns evolve gradually. They are stable and orderly only when they maintain continuity, harmony and consistency at all levels.

Corollary # 6a – Complex molecules like RNA and DNA have enough electrons around the many nuclei to form circuits for molecular computers.

Corollary # 6b – The naturally programmed sequence of motions in these molecules maintain continuity, harmony and consistency. Thus comes about life.

Corollary # 6c – The programmed motions are triggered by appropriate conditions in the environment. Thus there is perception.

Corollary # 6d – All motions are connected through the conditions in the environment. Thus, there is universal continuity, harmony and consistency.

Corollary # 6e – Motion together with perception appears as waves of feelings, sensations and emotions.

Corollary # 6f – Thinking evolves from reactions among chemicals to plant life, animal life and finally to responses determined by associations perceived by human life. Thus there is logical thinking.

Law # 7 – When the continuity, harmony and consistency of natural evolution is resisted there comes about tension and inflexibility.

Corollary # 7a – Human actions are determined by logical thinking. When human thinking is restricted to narrow contexts the resulting actions interfere with universal continuity, harmony and consistency. Such actions are called ‘karma’.

Corollary # 7b – Such actions generate tensions and they lead to inflexibility in thinking.  This outcome is called ‘dukkha’. Much of human reality consists of ‘dukkha’.

Corollary # 7c – The efforts to deal with ‘dukkha’  generate further tensions and inflexibilities. There is anxiety and craving underlying such efforts. This is called ‘thirst’.

Corollary # 7d – This ‘thirst’ comes about as a reaction to the presence of ‘dukkha’. It dominates human thinking and generates further ‘karma’.

Corollary # 7e – The way out is human thinking in universal context, away from thinking in narrow context of “self”.

Law # 8 – Restoration of the flexibility of natural evolution is achieved by letting the tension unwind freely in a universal context.

Corollary # 8a – Freedom comes from restraining ‘thirst’ and letting ‘dukkha’ unwind freely in a universal context until all ‘karma’ is released. This is ‘nirvana’.

Corollary # 8b – One then returns to the continuity, harmony, consistency and flexibility of the natural evolution.

Law # 9 – Natural evolution started by trial and error. This process gradually became sophisticated and evolved to scientific method among humans.

Corollary # 9a – The scientific method takes into account the universal context. This universal context is the basis of objectivity. Any lesser context leads to subjectivity and error.

Corollary # 9b – Human inventiveness becomes part of the natural evolution when it is applied in a universal context.

Law # 10 – The scientific view is universal and, therefore, objective. A human-centric view is less than  universal and, therefore, subjective and prone to error.

Corollary # 10a – A human-centric views, such as, “earth is at the center of the universe,” is subjective and erroneous.

Corollary # 10b – Most religious knowledge has been put forth from a human-centric view, and therefore it is subjective and has led to erroneous behavior.

Corollary # 10c – The scientific method currently limits itself to physics only. It may be extended to metaphysics in the form of mindfulness.

Corollary # 10d – Religious knowledge expressed from an objective viewpoint of mindfulness may lead to far more useful behavior.

Corollary # 10e – The religious concept of “higher power of God” may be expressed through mindfulness in terms of fundamental principles yet to be discovered. The Law # 1 above is an attempt in that direction.

Law # 11 – The next stage of evolution from present human condition seems to depend upon the attainment of the universal objectivity of mindfulness.

Corollary # 11a – According to Buddhism, the root of all evil is ignorance and false views. The ultimate true view is the objective view. The endeavor in Buddhism is the attainment of universal objectivity through the practice of mindfulness.

Corollary # 11b – All religions should be respected and understood from an objective viewpoint. This helps acquire an independent understanding of truth.

Corollary # 11c – Objective viewpoint is developed by viewing everything in a universal context and removing all discontinuities, disharmonies and inconsistencies in one’s life through observations and thought experiments.

Corollary # 11d – True knowledge is not the inflexibilities one carries around in one’s head as memory. True knowledge is continuous observation from an objective viewpoint.


The KHTK Factors (old)

Please see A Course on Hubbard’s Factors


Scn Factor 1: Before the beginning was a Cause and the entire purpose of the Cause was the creation of effect.

KHTK Factor 1: At the bottom of all existence is a disturbance oscillating between awareness and non-awareness.

NOTE: Cause and effect form a dichotomy that is a part of awareness. Awareness itself is a part of a deeper dichotomy of awareness and non-awareness.


Scn Factor 2: In the beginning and forever is the decision and the decision is TO BE.

KHTK Factor 2: The interchanges between non-awareness and awareness give rise to dynamic beingness comprising existence.

NOTE: A transition from non-awareness to awareness appears as creation. Similarly, a transition from awareness to non-awareness appears as destruction. Such transitions give the appearance of awareness changing from one form to another. This is also called survival. Here beingness has the sense of “existingness.”


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

KHTK Factor 3: The dynamic beingness intrinsically consists of motion and awareness.

NOTE: All motion and awareness are part of the universal beingness. Motion and awareness are two sides of the same coin. When there is motion there is also awareness, and when there is awareness there is also motion. A viewpoint is the narrowing down of awareness, and may be looked upon as a unit of awareness of motion.


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

KHTK Factor 4: The beingness perceives its form as energy and matter.

NOTE: The beingness has a form made up of energy and matter, where matter is condensation of energy. The beingness is aware of its form.


Scn 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: Perception separates beingness observed from beingness as observer. This brings about the phenomenon of SPACE.

NOTE: The perception, and the space across which perception takes place, is contained withing the beingness. Using Hubbard’s terminology, the dimension point, viewpoint and space shall all be part of beingness.


Scn Factor 6: The action of a dimension point is reaching and withdrawing.

KHTK Factor 6: The beingness changes by the time it perceives itself. This brings about the phenomenon of TIME.

NOTE: Beingness is dynamic so it changes while it perceives itself. Considering the beingness to be a wave of awareness, its wavelength may be looked upon as space and its period as time.


Scn 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: Space and Time are not absolute but transformable into each other. Thus the motion of the dynamic beingness is denoted by its frequency.


Scn Factor 8: And thus there is light.

KHTK Factor 8: The perception across space is denoted by light.

NOTE: The phenomena of perception and space appear to be closely related.


Scn Factor 9: And thus there is energy.

KHTK Factor 9: The frequency of beingness expresses energy.

NOTE: Here beingness means “existingness” that is composed of inherent recurring awareness.


Scn Factor 10: And thus there is life.

KHTK Factor 10: And thus there is life.


Scn Factor 11: But there are other viewpoints and these viewpoints outthrust 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: Motion and awareness condense to gain individualized forms and qualities, which then combine to generate objects and identities. Motion condenses into atoms that combine to generate objects. Awareness condenses into viewpoints that combine to generate identities.


Scn 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: Objects and identities develop capabilities to interact in complex ways. Objects, such as, cells, are capable of complex interactions. Identities, such as, self of organisms, are capable of complex computations.


Scn 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: Solidity of objects and identities, and of the complex interactions among them, comes from increasingly condensing patterns of motion and awareness.


Scn 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: Patterns of motion combine to form the gaseous, fluid and solid states of matter. Patterns of awareness combine to form the various characteristics and abilities. The most important factor is consistency, for the absence of consistency alone brings about unwanted conditions.


Scn 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: It is the differences and similarities among the characteristics of matter, and the abilities of organisms, that bring about the classes of beingness.


Scn 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 patterns of motion and awareness become increasingly complex through interactions; and so we have atoms, cell structures, higher organisms, their characteristics and capabilities. 

Note: The viewpoints are a reflection of what is being viewed.


Scn 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: All considerations, such as, stillness and motion, beauty and ugliness, are patterns of awareness built into the patterns of motions, and their interactions. They develop into a sense of “I” and opinions. 


Scn Factor 18: It is the opinions of the viewpoints that some of these forms should endure. Thus there is survival.

KHTK Factor 18: There is a continual change of beingness in its patterns of motion and awareness; but as some of these patterns endure in their forms and opinions there is survival.


Scn Factor 19: And the viewpoint can never perish; but the form can perish.

KHTK Factor 19: But even the patterns that endure in their forms and opinions, are bound to change eventually, as there is no underlying permanence.

NOTE: The form and viewpoint are reflection of each other. There is no absolute form or viewpoint independent of each other that can endure forever.


Scn 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: All motion and awareness is interconnected. There is no absolute separation. Any sense of “I” and “ownership” is part of the manifestation of the complex patterns of motion and awareness. 

NOTE: Viewpoints are not “senior” or “junior” to the forms being viewed. Such opinions are simply a part of what is.


Scn Factor 21: From this comes a consistency of viewpoint of the interaction of dimension points and this, regulated, is TIME.

KHTK Factor 21: There is an inherent consistency in all motion and awareness.

NOTE: Any inconsistency in motion and awareness simply stands out. It fixes or disperses the attention.


Scn Factor 22: And there are universes.

KHTK Factor 22: The whole system of motion and awareness is the UNIVERSE. 

NOTE: In a literal sense, the word UNIVERSE means, “turned into one”. Thus multiple universes are simply subsets of an overall UNIVERSE.


Scn 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: Separate universes may congeal within the UNIVERSE as the sense of “I” and ownership emerges; but they are still interconnected and never separate.


Scn 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 sense of “I” and ownership brings about attachments, which create a sense of scarcity and potential loss.


Scn Factor 25: Thus comes about death.

KHTK Factor 25: Thus comes about death.


Scn 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.

KHTK Factor 26: Pleasure and pain, thought, emotion, effort, thinking, sensation, affinity, reality, communication, behavior and being are all manifestations of these factors.


Scn Factor 27: There is beingness, but man believes there is only becomingness.

KHTK Factor 27: Fundamentally, all these manifestations are a continual interplay of awareness and non-awareness; but the attachments to them brings about a desire for permanency where there can be no permanency.


Scn 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 problem posed hereby lies in seeing things as they are, spotting of the inconsistencies as they present themselves, and resolving them through the practice of mindfulness.


Scn 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: There is inherently a relative consistency in all manifestations arising from the continual interplay of awareness and non-awareness; and nothing is ever absolute.


Scn 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: Thus we have an eternal stage that stages its own plays eternally.


KHTK Postulates for Metaphysics – Part 4 (old)

Reference: KHTK Postulates for Metaphysics – Part 3


KHTK Postulate M-16: Cause is the first part, and effect is the last part of association (in time) among forms.

We cut a tree; it falls. We strike a match; it lights up. Thus, we have a phenomenon that seems to be a direct consequence of another phenomenon. This makes us believe that all phenomena are caused. We, thus, assume that a form must be a consequence of another form. This belief leads to an infinite series of causes, where each cause has a form. To resolve the inconsistency of an infinite series of causes, we assume a First Cause that is not itself caused.


KHTK Postulate M-17: Forms precede cause and effect. There is no “First Cause.”

“First Cause” is a part of a series of assumptions as described above. The idea of cause has to do with the association and the type of relationship among forms. Cause is not some form itself. A cause is created only when an “association in time” is set up among existing forms. The forms themselves may simply appear or disappear depending on perception.


KHTK Postulate M-18: That which underlies forms cannot be a form. If God underlies forms then God cannot be a form.

God is associated with properties such as holiness, justice, sovereignty, omnipotence, omniscience, benevolence, omnipresence, and immortality. If these properties can be visualized then they are forms even when they are abstractions. None of these forms can be God. In fact any description of God would be a form. So, no description of God can be God.


KHTK Postulate M-19: What underlies forms is ultimately unknowable.

The processes of perceiving and knowing underlie the forms. Beyond these processes we may postulate primordial inertia-less field and activity-less energy. One may postulate something different. But it always ends up with postulates to make all forms consistent.


KHTK Postulate M-20: God is ultimately unknowable, though it may be speculated upon.

If God is viewed as the ultimate reality underlying all forms, then God is beyond all desires, activities and expectations because these are forms. Like the asymptote that never reaches its limiting value God cannot be known with absolute certainty, though we may speculate upon God.


KHTK Postulates for Metaphysics – Part 3 (old)

Reference: KHTK Postulates for Metaphysics – Part 2


KHTK Postulate M-11: Knowledge is always relative and never absolute.

It seems that the speed of light is absolute as declared by the Theory of Relativity and verified by many experiments. But this has been verified only for the visible frequency and in a matter-centric frame of reference. This speed could be relative to the frequencies in the spectrum and to the frame of references provided by the disturbance levels.

Knowledge is an aspect of awareness. Since awareness is relative, knowledge is relative too. It is not possible to have an absolute reference point of knowledge. Any assumption of such reference point shall be arbitrary.


KHTK Postulate M-12: Reality is what is perceived and exists to be perceived.

KHTK Postulate M-13: Truth is the degree of consistency and coherency in the reality perceived.


KHTK Postulate M-14: A belief system is knowledge that interprets reality in some useful way.


KHTK Postulate M-15: Self is a belief system capable of dynamic projection.
