KHTK Key Words: Dynamic 7

Reference: Course on Subject Clearing

The Seventh Dynamic Key words are:

Absolute, Seventh Dynamic, Oneness, Beingness, Viewpoint, Thought, Religion, God, Dimension, Duality, Cause-Effect, Static-Kinetic, Truth, Aesthetics

.

ABSOLUTE
Origin: “free, unrestricted, unconditioned.” Absolute means free from imperfection, restriction or limitation. The presence of unknowable means that  nothing is absolute in this universe. Everything is relative, conditioned and impermanent. There is no unchanging, everlasting, absolute substance like Self, Soul, or Ātman within or without. To think that you will live forever as a being is an anomaly.

SEVENTH DYNAMIC
The Seventh dynamic is the key characteristic of ONENESS of the system of postulates generated to understand the Eighth Dynamic. This characteristic of ONENESS underlies the knowable universe.

ONENESS
Oneness means that the universe is continuous, consistent and harmonious.

BEINGNESS
The components of beingness are awareness, attention and viewpoint. The broadest beingness is the Eighth Dynamic, which is everything unknowable and knowable. A narrower beingness is the Seventh Dynamic, which is ONENESS as the characteristic of the system of postulates underlying the knowable universe. As we go down the dynamics, the beingness becomes still narrower, but increasingly complex and discrete. 

VIEWPOINT
The viewpoint is the “center” of a system of postulates. It is generally referred to as the frame of reference of the self (beingness). On Seventh Dynamic, the viewpoint is universal oneness. It may be compared to the omniscient God of religion. As we go down the dynamics, the viewpoint narrows until it becomes individualistic on the First Dynamic.

THOUGHT
Origin: “to know.” In the dimension of thought we have postulates, considerations, axioms, principles, theories, hypotheses, data, concepts, ideas, experiences, perceptions and sensations. All these “objects” in the dimension of thought have substance. This substance itself may be referred to as thought

RELIGION
Religion is the Seventh dynamic of a culture. It consists of a set of beliefs to which the followers of the religion are strongly devoted. The key belief is usually expressed in the form of a superhuman agency (God), which is assumed to be the cause of this universe. The beliefs are generated to understand the nature of God. Religion prescribes practices, rituals, and codes of conduct that would, hopefully, bring one closer to this understanding. 

GOD
Origin: “To call, invoke.” The Semitic religions believe in one God, which implies ONENESS of creation (the universe). God personifies the cause of the universe. It is assigned infinity of attributes. God exists throughout the universe.

DIMENSION
dimension represents a continuously varying characteristic, such as, distance and temperature. The universe is made of an infinity of dimensions. A dimension can be plotted mathematically on a scale. A dimensional scale extends in two opposite directions, such as, East-West, hot-cold, etc. 

DUALITY
Duality means a dual state or quality, such as, hot-cold and good-evil. A duality is formed from the two opposite ends of a dimension. To see duality simply as two opposite items omits seeing the continuity of the dimension between them. That is an anomaly. See DIMENSION.

CAUSE-EFFECT
Cause-effect is a duality. They may be looked upon as the two ends of the dimension of states of existence. On this dimension, there is a previous state followed by the next state. The previous state may be perceived as the cause, and the next state may be perceived as its effect. Thus, in a sense cause transforms into effect. Scientology, however, looks at cause-effect in terms of cause point-effect point, where the two points (or terminals) remain static and some action flows from the cause point to the effect point.

STATIC-KINETIC
Static-kinetic is a duality. The kinetic is pegged around static. For example, a confusion is “kinetic” that is pegged around the “static” of a stable datum. To bring the confusion under control one simply needs to establish a stable datum. The ultimate stable datum on the Dynamics is ONENESS, which is applied to the system of postulates. In Scientology, the ultimate stable datum is STATIC, which is defined as “an actuality of no mass, no wave-length, no position in space or relation in time, but with the quality of creating or destroying mass or energy, locating itself or creating space, and of re-relating time.” 

TRUTH
Origin: “fidelity.” Truth is seeing things as they are. Truth has to do with “consistency”. Truth is seeing the dimension between two seemingly opposite items. The clearer is the perception the higher is the level of truth.

AESTHETICS
Aesthetics arises with harmony among dimensions. It translates into the arts.

KHTK Key Words: Dynamic 8

Reference: Course on Subject Clearing

The Eighth Dynamic Key words are:

Unknowable, Postulate, Knowable, Eighth Dynamic, Universe, Reality, Anomaly

.

UNKNOWABLE
Neither the cause nor the beginning of this universe is knowable. There is Inscrutable Power that keeps this universe running eternally; but, neither religion nor science has any clue to it. Unknowable excites the curiosity to know the true nature of things. Unknowable simply means that no matter how much you know, there is always something more to know. And that is wonderful because it makes one strive to achieve a deeper understanding. 

POSTULATE
A postulate is a self-created truth based on which further reasoning is done. The purpose of postulate is to fill the gaps in the knowable. The postulate may develop into a system of postulates and theories. Everything that we know is based on this system of postulates. To be valid, a postulate must be consistent with all other postulates. 

KNOWABLE
A postulate becomes knowable when it is manifested. Therefore, knowable is something manifested that can be further defined. 

EIGHTH DYNAMIC
The Eighth dynamic is the continuous transition from unknowable to knowable through the solving of anomalies. This brings about a continual sense of ecstasy.

UNIVERSE
Origin: “entire, all, literally, turned into one.” The universe refers to all that is manifested and knowable. It includes all matter, all energy, all space, all time, and all thought. In other words, the universe includes everything physical, metaphysical, real, imaginary, postulated or speculated. Nothing manifested is excluded from the universe. It is the whole existence treated as ONE.

REALITY
Origin: “actual, having physical existence.” Reality is the system of postulates that we have inherited and continue to build upon. Our reality defines the universe for us. 

ANOMALY
Origin: “irregular.” An anomaly is any violation of the integrity of reality, such as, discontinuity (missing data), inconsistency (contradictory data), or disharmony (arbitrary data).

The Eighth Dynamic: Knowable and Unknowable

Reference: Course on Subject Clearing

The Eighth Dynamic basically pertains to both knowable and unknowable aspects of existence. The universe is manifested, which makes it knowable; but neither its cause nor its beginning is knowable. There is Inscrutable Power that keeps this universe running eternally; but, neither religion nor science has any clue to it.

The unknowable aspect of the eighth dynamic is personified as God, or Big Bang. It excites the curiosity to know its true nature. Out of this curiosity come postulates and theories, and through them come the awareness and knowledge of the universe. 

Unknowable simply means that no matter how much you know, there is always something more to know. And that is wonderful because it makes one strive more to achieve a deeper understanding. 

The knowable universe is manifested, which means it has substance and motion. We postulate a oneness for it, meaning it is continuous, consistent and harmonious. We postulate infinity of dimensions for it, which gives it the appearance of duality, because each dimension has two opposite ends.

Postulates are followed by more postulates and the awareness and knowledge of the universe grows. Connections are made and the universe appears to evolve. Thus, the unknowable seems to transition into knowable, but it is never exhausted.

We find everything in this universe to be cyclic and changing continually. None of it remains the same forever. Yet the universe remains continuous, consistent and harmonious. These are the only “static” aspects to it, if any.

In this knowable universe, the continuity provides the sense of duality, consistency provides the sense of truth, and harmony provides the sense of aesthetics.

The Eighth dynamic is the continuous transition from unknowable to knowable. It is the solving of anomalies. And this brings about a sense of ecstasy. This is summarized here:

What is Unknowable?

Auditing and Meditation

Reference: Course on Subject Clearing

The first exercise in Scientology is TR0. This exercise underlies all of Scientology Tech. Auditing works only when the preclear keeps his TR0 in.

And what is TR0? It is the meditative approach to contemplating. It is confronting what is there. It is seeing things as they are. When the preclear is asked an auditing question, that is what the preclear does.

At least that is how I approached auditing and I got fast results in the beginning. It became “grinding” later because I didn’t need that process any more.

So, what is Scientology’s contribution to meditation? It is basically telling a person what to meditate on. The other part of Scientology’s contribution is to keep the person’s attention on the subject he is meditating on.

When you are prescribing to a person the subject to meditate on, the difficulty comes about in the following areas:

  1. Knowing the right subject for the person to meditate on.
  2. Keeping the person’s attention on that subject until results are obtained.
  3. Once the results are gotten, going back to step (1) again.

I was lucky to get started on Dianetic auditing. I got wonderful results in my first 40 hours of auditing, but then I was kept on Dianetic auditing for hundreds of more hours with no results. Finally I was declared Dianetics Clear. and put on Scientology Grades. I had great results right away followed by many more hours with no results. Luckily, I did not go for OT levels, which are famous for auditing that one grinds through..

If one can master the discipline of SUBJECT CLEARING, one may go through the whole Scientology bridge pretty fast with great results, on his own. I am sure of it.

Mind: The Tool for Resolving Anomalies

Reference: Course on Subject Clearing

.

The Matrix Model

Subject Clearing proposes a MATRIX MODEL for the mind that replaces the earlier models, such as, the “subconscious mind” of Freud, and the “reactive mind” of Hubbard. This model proposes, for the first time, a structure that parallels the primary function of the mind: the resolution of anomalies. 

.

Basic Functions of the Mind

Normally, the mind perceives the environment, assesses the conditions, and directs the body to perform activity to resolve situations and improve conditions. The mind also monitors the various flows within the body to maintain it in good condition. The mind continually operates to remove any doubts, perplexities and confusions within itself, so it can operate with clarity.

.

Context of the Mind

The body-mind-spirit is actually a single system of life whose purpose is to evolve. The body is the solid appendage that interacts directly with the environment. The mind receives the input from the environment, and processes it into various instructions for the body. The body follows those instructions to resolve anomalies in the environment. The spirit is the “center of awareness’ of the whole system that is intent on evolving.

.

Operational Structure of the Mind

The mind receives the input from the environment through the senses of touch, sight, hearing, taste and smell. The generated SENSATIONS are then broken down into PERCEPTUAL ELEMENTS so they can be assimilated in the “mental matrix.”

The MENTAL MATRIX is the core of the mind. It is a network of associations of perceptual elements ever received by the mind. Each perceptual elements forms a NODE in this matrix. The newly received perceptual elements are added to this network. 

The ASSIMILATION takes place in the manner of associations being formed among the existing and newly received elements, such that there is continuity, consistency and harmony among all associations within the matrix.. It is only after this assimilation that the organism is able to perceive the input.

The mind receives the input on a continuous basis. The perceptual elements are identified by their characteristics and a TIME STAMP of when they were received. Upon assimilation any duplicate perceptual elements are merged together.

MEMORIES are reconstructed as and when needed during mental computations, by associating the perceptual elements in the matrix by their time stamps. Memories are not stored as “recordings” because that will amount to a lot of storage.

The whole mental matrix forms the EXPERIENCE of the organism. IMAGINATION is generated from the creative associations among the perceptual elements in the matrix.

There may be gaps among the associations, but they are bridged over by rational projections. Over time, these rational projections are replaced by actual experience. 

The multi-dimensional associations of the mental matrix then come to reflect the “universe” with increasing precision. The UNIVERSE refers to all matter, all energy, all space, all time, and all thought. In other words, the universe includes everything physical, metaphysical, real, imaginary, postulated or speculated. Nothing is excluded from the universe. It is the whole existence treated as ONE. 

The finer are the perceptual elements, the better is this precision in perceiving this universe. This is what we conceive as the CONSCIOUSNESS of the mind.

.

Limitations of the Mind

Traumatic sensations do not break down easily into perceptual elements after entering into the mind. They embed themselves into the mental matrix as UNASSIMILATED IMPRESSIONS. The content of such impressions cannot be properly perceived because they are not assimilated with the rest of perceptual elements in the matrix. 

The unassimilated impressions are “perceived” as raw sensations of PAIN and ANXIETY. Their effect is to distort the mental matrix. Such distortions show up as anomalies in the otherwise smooth operation of the mind.

In terms of earlier models of Freud and Hubbard, the assimilated mental matrix, which provides rational thinking, may be called the CONSCIOUS or the ANALYTICAL mind; and the unassimilated impressions, collectively, which distort the operation of the mind, may be referred to as the SUBCONSCIOUS or the REACTIVE mind.

.

Summary

The mind is the tool that resolves anomalies. Traumatic experience, however, generates anomalies in the operation of the mind itself. Subject Clearing has assisted in developing this MATRIX MODEL OF THE MIND, so that the source of such anomalies could easily be identified and resolved.

The resolution of such anomalies, then, improves one’s ability to think clearly and perceive things in the universe just as they are without distortions.

Having this ability, one can resolve deeper and larger problems of the universe easily.

This then helps Man accomplish rapidly the prime purpose of the universe: TO EVOLVE.
