Holy Scriptures vs Scientology - A parallel
     With added the ‘Fathers of the Church’ and ‘Taoism’
(to other Scientology pages)

>> Do you want to help with preserving the original technology? <<  Consult my want list here!

        Please note that at the end of this page you'll find a list of Scientology definitions of various words used. They have not been marked in the text though.

        
“Scientology is a religion in the oldest sense of the word, a study of wisdom. Scientology is a study of man as a spirit, in his relationship to life and the physical universe.
        
 
It is non-denominational. By that is meant that Scientology is open to people of all religious beliefs and in no way tries to persuade a person from his religion, but assists him to better understand that he is a spiritual being ...”
 
  Mary Sue Hubbard            
  (from Supplement to “Communication”, September 1964)  

Based on the 1967 publication of ‘Scientology and the Bible - A Manifest Parallelling the Discoveries of Scientology by L. Ron Hubbard with the Holy Scriptures’. This was originally compiled by Catherine Briggs, Colin Chalmers, Margaret Chalmers, Doreen Elton, Gladys Goodyer, Catherine Steele, Dorothy Penberthy, and Katie Steele (In Memoriam), who concluded and piloted the completion of the original little book.

All that was in the original little book is here. Only a few adjustments have been made, a few reorganizations and various additions. The integrity of the original release has not been violated in any way. Various detailed notes have been added to supply the source of the Scientology quotations.

The Parallels between Taoism and Scientology are additions which are not found in this little book.

Do you know some nice parallels that I can add to this page?
If any would know about some additional parallel (and I am sure there must be many more). Then please share it with me, and I will look at them and implement them to this page. Suggestions and/or ideas are also welcome.

(Summation of the considerations and examinations of the human spirit and the material universe completed between A.D. 1923 and 1953)
Humbly tendered as a gift to man by L. Ron Hubbard, April 23, 1953.

       Proverbs, 22.
      30    There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the Lord.
St. John, 1.
    18    No man hath seen God at any time.
         
St. John, 1.
    1.    Before the beginning was a Cause and the entire purpose of the Cause was the creation of effect.     In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    2    The same was in the beginning with God.
 
    2.    In the beginning and forever is the decision and the decision is TO BE.
      
    3    All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
    4    In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
 
    3.    The first action of beingness is to assume a viewpoint.
      
    5    And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
         
Proverbs, 8.
    4.    The second action of beingness is to extend from the viewpoint, points to view, which are dimension points.     22    The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
    23    I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
 
    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.
      
    24    When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.
    25    Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:
 
    6.    The action of a dimension point is reaching and withdrawing.
      
    26    While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
 
    7.    And from the viewpoint to the dimension points there are connection and interchange. Thus new dimension points are made. Thus there is communication.
      
    27    When he prepared the heavens, I was there; when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
    28    When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:
 
    8.    And thus there is light.
      
    29    When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
 
    9.    And thus there is energy.
      
    30    Then was I by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;
 
    10.    And thus there is life.
      
    31    Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.
    32    Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.
    33    Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
    34    Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
    35    For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.
    36    But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
St. John, 8.
    58    Before Abraham was, I am.
St. John, 5.
    26    For as the Father has life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
          St. John, 8.
    18.    It is the opinions of the viewpoints that some of these forms should endure. Thus there is survival.     54    Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father, that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
 
    19.    And the viewpoint can never perish; but the form can perish.
      
    55    Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you! but I know him, and keep his saying.
    56    Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
    57    Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?    
    58    Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          St. John, 4.
    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.     14    But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
St. John, 8.
    38    Out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
          Proverbs, 21.
    25.    Thus comes about death.     16    The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.
Psalm 69.
    1    Save me, O God, for the waters are come into my soul.
    14    Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.
    15    Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up.

          1 Corinthians, 12.
     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 therein. (i.e. Factors 24 and 25.)     4    Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
    7    But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
    8    For to one is given . . . the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge.
    9    To another faith . . . to another the gifts of healing.
    10    To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy;

[published in “Advanced Procedure and Axioms” (1951), the Prelogics are dating from 1952]

          Galatians, 6.
    PRELOGIC 1.    SELF-DETERMINISM IS THE COMMON DENOMINATOR OF ALL LIFE IMPULSES.     4    But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
    5    For every man shall bear his own burden.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          Proverbs, 1.
    LOGIC 1.    KNOWLEDGE IS A WHOLE GROUP OR SUB-DIVISION OF A GROUP OF DATA OR SPECULATIONS OR CONCLUSIONS ON DATA OR METHODS OF GAINING DATA.     2    To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          Proverbs, 1.
    LOGIC 2.    A BODY OF KNOWLEDGE IS A BODY OF DATA, ALIGNED OR UNALIGNED, OR METHODS OF GAINING DATA.     3    To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;
    
     Proverbs, 1.
    LOGIC 3.    ANY KNOWLEDGE WHICH CAN BE SENSED, MEASURED OR EXPERIENCED BY ANY ENTITY IS CAPABLE OF INFLUENCING THAT ENTITY.
    COROLLARY-THAT KNOWLEDGE WHICH CANNOT BE SENSED, MEASURED OR EXPERIENCED BY ANY ENTITY OR TYPE OF ENTITY CANNOT INFLUENCE THAT ENTITY OR TYPE OF ENTITY.
    4    To give subtlety to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          St. Mark, 12.
    LOGIC 5.    A DEFINITION OF TERMS IS NECESSARY TO THE ALIGNMENT, STATEMENT AND RESOLUTION OF SUPPOSITIONS, OBSERVATIONS, PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS AND THEIR COMMUNICATION.
    DEFINITION-DESCRIPTIVE DEFINITION: ONE WHICH CLASSIFIES BY CHARACTERISTICS, BY DESCRIBING EXISTING STATES OF BEING.
    DEFINITION-DIFFERENTIATIVE DEFINITION: ONE WHICH COMPARES UNLIKENESS TO EXISTING STATES OF BEING OR NOT BEING.
    DEFINITION-ASSOCIATIVE DEFINITION: ONE WHICH DECLARES LIKENESS TO EXISTING STATES OF BEING OR NOT BEING.
    DEFINITION-ACTION DEFINITION: ONE WHICH DELINEATES CAUSE AND POTENTIAL CHANGE OF STATE OF BEING BY CAUSE OF EXISTENCE, INEXISTENCE, ACTION, INACTION, PURPOSE OR LACK OF PURPOSE.
    13    And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          Proverbs, 20.
    LOGIC 6.    ABSOLUTES ARE UNOBTAINABLE.     9    Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?
          Proverbs, 20.
    LOGIC 7.    GRADIENT SCALES ARE NECESSARY TO THE EVALUATION OF PROBLEMS AND THEIR DATA.
    This is the tool of infinity valued logic: Absolutes are unobtainable. Terms such as good and bad, alive and dead, right and wrong are used only in conjunction with gradient scales. On the scale of right and wrong, everything above zero or centre would be more and more right, approaching an infinite rightness, and everything below centre would be more and more wrong approaching infinite wrongness. All things assisting the survival of the survivor are considered to be right for the survivor. All things inhibiting survival from the viewpoint of the survivor can be considered wrong for the survivor. The more a thing assists survival, the more it can be considered right for the survivor, the more a thing or action inhibits survival, the more it is wrong from the viewpoint of the intended survivor.
    COROLLARY-ANY DATUM HAS ONLY RELATIVE TRUTH.
    COROLLARY-TRUTH IS RELATIVE TO ENVIRONMENTS, EXPERIENCE AND TRUTH.
    6    Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?
Proverbs, 21.
    2    Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord pondereth the hearts.
Proverbs, 15.
    24    The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          Proverbs, 15.
    LOGIC 9.    A DATUM IS AS VALUABLE AS IT HAS BEEN EVALUATED.     28    The heart of the righteous studieth to answer.
St. John, 10.
    25    The works that I do . . . they bear witness of me.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          Proverbs, 15.
    LOGIC 10.    THE VALUE OF A DATUM IS ESTABLISHED BY THE AMOUNT OF ALIGNMENT (RELATIONSHIP) IT IMPARTS TO OTHER DATA.
    LOGIC 11.    THE VALUE OF A DATUM OR FIELD OF DATA CAN BE ESTABLISHED BY ITS DEGREE OF ASSISTANCE IN SURVIVAL OR ITS INHIBITION TO SURVIVAL.
    31    The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          Proverbs, 21.
    LOGIC 12.    THE VALUE OF A DATUM OR A FIELD OF DATA IS MODIFIED BY THE VIEWPOINT OF THE OBSERVER.     2    Every way of a man is right in his own eyes; but the Lord pondereth the hearts.
Proverbs, 26.
    5    Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          St. Luke, 20.
    LOGIC 14.    FACTORS INTRODUCED INTO A PROBLEM OR SOLUTION WHICH DO NOT DERIVE FROM NATURAL LAW BUT ONLY AUTHORITARIAN COMMAND, ABERRATE THAT PROBLEM OR SOLUTION.     2    Tell us, by what authority doest thou these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority?
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          St. John, 5.
    LOGIC 18.    A POSTULATE IS AS VALUABLE AS IT IS WORKABLE.     17    But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          St. John, 14.
    LOGIC 23.    
    COROLLARY-THE HUMAN MIND IS CAPABLE OF RESOLVING THE PROBLEM OF THE HUMAN MIND.
    17    Even the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeith him not, neither knoweth him, but ye know him, for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          Proverbs, 20.
    12.    Always reduce every communication lag encountered by continued use of the same question or process.     15    There is gold, and a multitude of rubies; but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          Proverbs, 16.
    13.    Always continue a process as long as it produces change and no longer.     3    Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          St. Matthew, 7.
    14.    Be willing to grant beingness to the preclear.     1    Judge not, that ye be not judged.
    2    For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Proverbs, 19.
    11    The discretion of a man deferreth his anger, and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          St. John, 5.
    15.    Never mix the processes of Scientology with those of various other practices.     30    I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear I judge; and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father.
(Oxford: Father = one who originates, calls into being.)
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          Proverbs, 14.
    16.    Maintain two-way communication with the preclear.     13    Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth is heaviness.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          Proverbs, 20.
    18.    Estimate the current case of your preclear with reality and do not process another imagined case.     5    Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out.

[published in “The Creation of Human Ability - A handbook for Scientologists” (1954)]

Proverbs, 18.
    24    There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

    9    Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself: and discover not a secret to another.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          St. Matthew, 10.

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          Ecclesiastes, 7.
    10.    Your integrity to yourself is more important than your body.      1    A good name is better than precious ointment;
Proverbs, 22.
    1    A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.
St. Matthew, 16.

    1.    To hear or speak no word of disparagement to the press, public or preclears concerning any of my fellow Scientologists, our professional organization or those whose names are closely connected to this science, nor to place in danger any such persons.      23    Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.

          Proverbs, 22.
    4.    To deter to the fullest extent of my power anyone misusing or degrading Scientology to harmful ends.      24    Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man shalt thou not go:    
    25    Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.

    9.    To refuse to impart the personal secrets of my preclears.      13    A tale bearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          Proverbs, 12.

Go back to Index THE AXIOMS OF SCIENTOLOGY:
[published in “The Creation of Human Ability - A handbook for Scientologists” (1954)]

          St. John, 10.
    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. 
    28    And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
St. John, 3.
    8    The wind bloweth where it listeth and thou hearest the sound thereof, and canst not tell where it cometh, and whither it goeth. So is everyone that is born of the Spirit.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          Ecclesiastes, 3.
    AXIOM 9.    CHANGE IS THE PRIMARY MANIFESTATION OF TIME.     1    To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
    2    A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
    3    A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
    AXIOM 11.    THE CONSIDERATIONS RESULTING IN CONDITIONS OF EXISTENCE ARE FOUR-FOLD:
    (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-ISNESS. 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.
                  
 
St. Matthew, 26.
    51    And behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his ear.
    52    Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.

Genesis, 17.
    1    And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and he thou perfect.
    2    And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
    3    And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,
    4    As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.
    5    Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.
Genesis, 25.    
    7    And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, a hundred threescore and fifteen years.
    8    Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.
    9    And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre;

    33    And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice,
    34    Saying, Let us alone; what have we to da with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? Art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God.
    35    And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not.
    36    And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.
    37    And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about.

          Psalm 32.
    AXIOM 20.    BRINGING THE STATIC TO CREATE A PERFECT DUPLICATE CAUSES THE VANISHMENT OF ANY EXISTENCE OR PART THEREOF.
    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 vanishment of the object. 
    1    Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
    2    Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.
    3    When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.
    4    For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.
    5    I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
    6    For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.
    10    Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about.

    AXIOM 23.    THE STATIC HAS THE CAPABILITY OF TOTAL KNOWINGNESS. TOTAL KNOWINGNESS WOULD CONSIST OF TOTAL ARC.     14    Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.
    15    And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?
    16    Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
    17    If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
    18    He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

              (Example of no affinity)
Proverbs, 29.
    AXIOM 25.    AFFINITY IS A SCALE OF ATTITUDES WHICH FALLS AWAY FROM THE CO-EXISTENCE 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.

          Psalm 40.
    AXIOM 27.    AN ACTUALITY CAN EXIST FOR ONE INDIVIDUALLY, BUT WHEN IT IS AGREED WITH BY OTHERS IT CAN THEN 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-isness.

          St. John, 4.
    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 OF THAT WHICH EMANATED FROM THE SOURCE-POINT.
    The formula of Communication is: Cause, Distance, Effect, with Attention and Duplication.
    The component parts of Communication are Consideration, Intention, Attention, Cause, Source-point, Distance, Effect, Receipt-point, Duplication, 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.

    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.

    4    Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him,
    5    Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
    6    This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bore what was put therein.
    7    Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.

          Proverbs, 30.
    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. 
    5    Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
    6    Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
          Proverbs, 17.
    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.

    1: TRUTH IS THE EXACT CONSIDERATION.
    2: TRUTH IS THE EXACT TIME, PLACE, FORM AND EVENT. 
    14    That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive:
    15    But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
    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 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.

    AXIOM 38.      Titus, 1.
    . . . failure to discover Truth brings about stupidity.     15    Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure, but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

Go back to Index From “Science of Survival” (1951)

God, Supreme Being.      The Song of Moses
“Science of Survival” A.D. 1951  Deuteronomy, 32.
    One might postulate two more realities. The first is that of the Supreme Being. No culture in the history of the world, save the thoroughly depraved and expiring ones, has failed to affirm the existence of a Supreme Being. It is an empirical observation that men without a strong and lasting faith in a Supreme Being are less capable, less ethical, and less valuable to themselves and society. A government wishing to deprave its people to the point where they will accept the most perfidious and rotten acts abolishes first the concept of God; and in the wake of that destroys the family, with free love; the intellectual, with police-enforced idiocies; and so reduces a whole population to an estate somewhat below that of dogs. A man without an abiding faith is, by observation alone, more of a thing than a man. Modern science, producing weapons for the annihilation of men, women, and children in wholesale lots, has solidly run itself aground on the reef of Godlessness. Modern science has gone so far as to advocate the rise of man from mud and clay alone; has denied to him even a semblance of a soul; and so has not only solved none of the problems of the humanities, but has aided and abetted Godless totalitarian governments which seek nothing less than the engulfment and enslavement of all men and the extinguishment of every spark of decency in the breast of every human being. These two tracks which have led away from the affirmation of the existence of a Supreme Being—modern science and totalitarianism—are bringing man into a machine-like state of being where the ideal has become a lump of muscle, greasy with sweat, or a grimy mechanic serving a howling monster of steel. The arts, the humanities, and the decencies are fallen away from, until they are like tiny stars shining across a great, black void. The abandonment of the admission of a Supreme Being as a reality, intimate to the life of man, makes prostitution the ideal conduct of a woman; perfidy and betrayal the highest ethic level attainable by a man; and obliteration by treachery, bomb, and gun the highest goal attainable by a culture. Thus, there is no great argument about the reality of a Supreme Being, since one sees, in the failure to countenance that reality, a slimy and loathsome trail, downward into the most vicious depths
    The theta universe is a postulated reality for which there exists much evidence. If one were going to draw a diagram of this, it would be a triangle with the Supreme Being at one corner, the MEST universe at another, and the theta universe at the third. Too much evidence is forthcoming in research to permit us to overlook this reality. Indeed, the assumption of this reality is solving some of the major problems of the humanities and fills in many gaps which existed formerly in the theory of the engram, (pp. 98-99)

Go back to Index Truth.
     St. John, 8.
    The highest level of the scale contains the faculty of communicating completely and withholding nothing; also the ability to communicate with complete rational selectivity; also the ability to be conversationally creative and constructive.
    At this high level of the scale, the individual is able to listen to everything which is said and evaluate it rationally. He can listen to entheta* communications without becoming severely enturbulated. He can receive ideas without making critical or derogatory comments. And, while receiving another person's ideas, he can greatly aid that person's thinking and talking. (p. 87)

    Truth is actually a relative quantity; it could be said to be the most reasonable existing data about any body of facts.
    Truth, as a manifestation of human conduct, would be the holding or voicing of facts as one knows them and refusal to utter or hold statements contrary to what one knows. (p. 133) *Entheta: enturbulated Theta.
    Theta is the Scientology word for thought or life, taken from the Greek. Enturbulate means to cause to be turbulent or agitated and disturbed.

St. John, 14.
    16    And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
    17    Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
    18    I will not leave you comfortless.
    26    But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
St. John, 16.
    7    Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
    8    And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
    9    Of sin, because they believe not on me;
    10    Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
    11    Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
    12    I yet have many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
    13    Howbeit when he, the Spirit of Truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

“The Creation of Human Ability” 1954.      Proverbs, 18.
    The curse of this world is not actually its atom bomb, though that is bad enough. The curse of this world is the irresponsibility of those who, seeking to study but one universe, the physical universe, try to depress all beings down to the low order or mechanically motivated, undreaming, unaesthetic things. Science as a word has been disgraced, for the word science means truth and truth means light. A continual fixation and dependence upon only one universe while ignoring the other two universes leads to darkness, to despair, to nothingness. There is nothing wrong with the physical universe; one should not cease to observe the physical universe, but one certainly should not concentrate upon it so that he can agree with it and its laws only. He has laws of his own. It is better, far better, for the individual to concentrate upon his own universe than to concentrate upon the MEST universe, but this in itself is not the final answer. A balance is achieved in the three universes and certainty upon those universes.
    All control is effected by introducing uncertainties and hidden influences. “Look how bad it is over there, so you'll have to look back at me.” This slavery is effected solely by getting people to fix on one thing. That one thing in this case is the physical universe. Science, so-called, today produces machines to blow your nose, produces machines to think for you, produces every possible argument as to why you should consider your body frail and unexpendable. Science, under the domination of capital, creates scarcity. It creates a scarcity of universes in fixing one upon one universe only. Those things which are scarce are those things which the individual has lost his faith in creating, in having. An individual who cannot create has to hold onto what he has. This leads him into holding onto what he had. Where he has had a certainty in the past that something existed, he begins to grip it closer and closer to him; his space lessens, his beingness lessens, he becomes less active. The reactive mind that cannot create children, has lost its hope of creation. It then can influence the analytical mind into believing that it can no longer create. The analytical mind creating artistically in the MEST universe and not in its own universe at all, and not in other people's universes that it can recognize, goes down scale until it meets on its own level the reactive mind. And here at this level we find the enslaver, the person who makes things scarce, the fellow who uses his ethics, so-called, to enforce his crude judgments and to make things out of beings that could be men.
    Here, where the reactive mind and the analytical mind have come into a parity, we have the only effect that can be produced—the effect of pain. Where we have an active desire for pain masking in a thousand guises, where every good impulse high on the scale is turned into a mockery, here we have crime, here we have war. These things are not awareness. These things merely act on a stimulus-response mechanism. Up scale is the high, bright, breadth of being, breadth of understanding, breadth of awareness. To get there all one must do is to become aware of the existence of the three universes by direct observation. (pp. 224-226) 
    20    A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.

Go back to Index Certainty and Sanity. Beingness.
     Proverbs, 18.
    Scientology is the science of knowledge, it contains many parts. Its most fundamental division is Scientology itself and Para-Scientology. Under Scientology we group those things of which we can be certain and only those things of which we can be certain. Knowledge itself is certainty; knowledge is not data. Knowingness itself is certainty. Sanity is certainty, providing only that that certainty does not fall beyond the conviction of another when he views it. To obtain a certainty one must be able to observe. But what is the level of certainty we require? And what is the level of observation we require for a certainty or a knowledge to exist? If a man can stand before a tree and by sight, touch, or other perception know that he is confronting a tree and be able to perceive its form and be quite sure he is confronting a tree, we have the level of certainty we require.
    We have here, then a parallel between certainty and sanity.
    The less certain the individual on any subject, the less sane he could be said to be upon that subject; the less certain he is of what he views in the material universe, what he views in his own or the other fellow's universe, the less sane he could be said to be.
    The road to sanity is demonstrably the road to increasing certainty. Starting at any level, it is only necessary to obtain a fair degree of certainty on the MEST universe to improve considerably one's beingness. Above that, one obtains some certainty of his own universe and some certainty of the other fellow's universe.
    Certainty, then, is clarity of observation. Of course above this, vitally so, is certainty in creation. Here is the artist, here is the master, here is the very great spirit.
    As one advances he discovers that what he first perceived as a certainty can be considerably improved. Thus we have certainty as a gradient scale. It is not an absolute, but it is defined as the certainty that one perceives or the certainty that one creates what one perceives or the certainty that there is perception. Sanity and perception, certainty and perception, knowledge and observation, are then all of a kind, and amongst them we have sanity. (pp. 187-191)

     Proverbs, 19.
    Simplicity, it would be suspected, would be the keynote of any process, any communications system, which would deliver into a person's hands the command of his own beingness. The simplicity consists of the observation of three universes. The first step is the observation of one's own universe and what has taken place in that universe in the past. The second step would be observation of the material universe and direct consultation with it to discover its forms, depths, emptinesses and solidities. The third step would be the observation of other people's universes or their observation of the MEST universe, for there are a multitude of viewpoints of these three universes. (pp. 191-192)      23    The fear of the Lord tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.

  Job, 17. [circ. 1520 B.C.)
    It is very puzzling to people at higher levels of awareness why people behave toward them as they do; such higher level people have not realized that they are not seen, much less understood. People at low levels of awareness do not observe, but substitute for observation preconceptions, evaluation and suppositions, and even physical pain by which to attain their certainties. (p. 193)      2    Are there not mockers with me? and doth not mine eye continue in their provocation?
    4    For thou hast hid their heart from understanding.

Go back to Index Uncertainty-What it is.
     Romans, 14.
    An uncertainty is the product of two certainties.
    One can be sure that something is and one can be sure that something is not. Where these two certainties of something and nothing are concerned with and can vitally influence one's continuance in a state of beingness or where one merely supposes they can influence such a state of beingness, a condition of anxiety arises. Thus anxiety, indecision, uncertainty, a state of “maybe”, can exist only in the presence of poor observation or the inability to observe. (pp. 194-195)

Go back to Index Analytical Mind. Awareness of Awareness Unit. Spirit.
      
St. Luke, 17.
    We face, then, two general types of mind. One is an analytical thing which depends for its conclusions upon perception or even creation of things to perceive and bases its judgment on observation in terms of three universes. This we call the “analytical mind”. We could also call it the spirit. We could also call it the “awareness of awareness unit”. We could call it the conscious individual himself in the best of his beingness. We could call it the mathematical term thetan. Whatever its name we could have precisely the same thing, a viewpoint capable of creation and observation of things created which concludes and directs action in terms of the existing state of three universes, as they are observed directly. (pp. 195)     21    The Kingdom of God is within you.
1 Corinthians, 2.
    11    For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him?

Go back to Index Reactive Mind.
     St. John, 8.
    The other type of mind resembles nothing if not an electronic brain. It receives its data in terms of conviction, delivered by force. It is directed by and reacts to hidden influences rather than observed influences and is, to a large extent, the reverse image and has reverse intentions to the analytical mind. This we call the reactive mind. It is an actual entity and it operates in terms of experience and theory. It sets up thinking machinery around uncertainties and the course of its thinking is downward. It seeks to direct and dictate out of pain and the effort to avoid pain.
    The primary difference between these two “minds” is that one, the analytical mind, is without finite duration, and the other, the reactive mind, is susceptible to death. (pp. 195-196) 
    15    Ye judge after the flesh;

Go back to Index Survival is the Common Goal.
     Proverbs, 10.
    The goals of the two minds are not separate goals. The reactive mind is a makeshift effort on the part of the viewpoint to perceive things which it believes to be unperceivable except by comparison of uncertainties. Both minds are seeking to persist and endure through time, which is to say, survive. The analytical mind can, unless it becomes too uncertain and by that uncertainty has set up too many reactive mechanisms, persist indefinitely. The reactive mind pursues the cycle of life span.
    The analytical mind seeks by creation to cause an effect; the reactive mind seeks by duplication, borrowing, and experience to cause an effect. Both minds, then, are seeking to cause an effect, and this is their entire motivation for action.
    Each of the three universes seeks to persist indefinitely. Each is continuously caused, and each is continually receiving an effect. Each has its own adjudication of what it should receive as an effect and what it should cause.
    Time itself consists of a continuous interaction of the universes. Each may have its own space; each has its own particular energy. (p. 197)

Go back to Index The Eight Dynamics.
   
    The urge of any of these three universes towards survival is sub-divisible for each of the three universes into eight dynamics. There are, then, four groups of eight dynamics each: the eight dynamics of one's own universe, the eight dynamics of the physical universe, the eight dynamics of the other's universe, as well as the eight dynamics of the triangle itself.
    These dynamics could be subdivided as follows:
(pp. 197-198)
 
       1 Samuel, 16.
the first dynamic would be that one most intimate to the universe which could be said to be the dynamic urging the survival of self.     7    But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.
  Proverbs, 20.
The second dynamic would be that one of the persistence of admiration in many forms in one's own and the other's universe. This admiration could take the form of sex, eating, or purely the sensation of creation such as sex and children. In the physical universe it would be that light emanation similar to sunlight.     7    The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.
  Proverbs, 15.
The third dynamic could be said to be that dynamic embracing persistence of groups of objects or entities.     22    Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.
  The Acts, 17.
The fourth dynamic would concern itself with an entire species.     24    God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
    25    Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
    26    And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
  Proverbs, 12.
The fifth dynamic would concern itself with other living species and would embrace all other living species.     10    A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast:
    11    He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread:
  Proverbs, 28.
The sixth dynamic would embrace, in terms of survival, the space, energy, matter and forms of the universe as themselves.     10    The upright shall have good things in possession.
  St. John, 1.
The seventh dynamic would be the urge to survive of the spirits or spiritual aspects of each universe.     13    Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
  1 Corinthians, 2.
The eighth dynamic would be the overall Creativeness or destructiveness as a continuing impulse.     11    even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the spirit of God.
  St. John, 1.
      18    No man hath seen God at any time;

Go back to Index The Tone Scale.
     Proverbs, 17.
    Each impulse is concerned wholly with systems of communication. Communication requires a viewpoint and a destination in its most elementary form, and as this grows more complex and as it grows more important, communication grows more rigid and fixed as to its codes and lines. The reason for communication is to effect effects and observe effects.
    Each of the three universes has its own triangle of affinity, reality and communication. Each of these three things is interdependent of the other two. Affinity is the characteristic of the energy as to its vibration, condensation, rarefaction, and, in the physical universe, its degree of cohesion or dispersion. Reality depends upon coincidence or non-coincidence of flow and is marked mainly by the direction of flow. It is essentially agreement. Communication is the volume of flow or lack of flow. Of these three, communication is by far the most important. Affinity and reality exist to further communication. Under affinity we have, for instance, all the varied emotions which go from apathy at 0.1 through grief, fear, anger, antagonism, boredom, enthusiasm, exhilaration and serenity in that order. It is affinity and this rising scale of the characteristics of emotion which give us the tone scale. The tone scale can be a certainty to anyone who has seen other beings react emotionally, who has himself felt emotion, and who has seen the varied moods of the physical universe itself. The periodic chart of chemistry is itself a sort of tone scale.
    There is a downward spiral on the tone scale and an upward spiral. These spirals are marked by decreasing or increasing awareness. To go up scale one must increase his power to observe with certainty; to go down scale one must decrease his power to observe. There are two certainties here. One is a complete certainty of total awareness which would be at 40.0 on the tone scale, and the other is a certainty of total unawareness which would be 0.0 on the tone scale or nearly so. Neither end, however, is itself an absolute for the analytical mind, and the analytical mind can go below 0 of the reactive mind. However, these two classes of certainty are very wide in their satisfaction of the qualifications of a certainty. Because the two extremes of the scale are both zeros in terms of space, it is possible to confuse one for the other and so make it appear that total awareness would be total unawareness. Experience and observation can disabuse one of this idea. The scale is not circular. (pp. 198-200) 
    27    He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.
Proverbs, 24.
    5    A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.
Proverbs, 28.
    5    Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the Lord understand all things.
Proverbs, 16.
    32    He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.  
Proverbs, 25.
    28    He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.
Proverbs, 28.
    1    The wicked flee when no man pursueth; but the righteous are bold as a lion.
Proverbs, 18.
    9    He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.  
Proverbs, 1.
    29    they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:
    30    They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
    31    Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
Proverbs, 10.
    23    It is as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom.

Go back to Index Certainty.
     Proverbs, 10.
    Certainty is a wonderful thing. The road towards realizing what certainty is has led these investigations through many uncertainties. One had to find out what was before one could find out what could be. That work is done. It is possible to take large groups and to bring them, each and every one, into higher levels of certainty. And bringing them into higher levels of certainty brings them into higher levels of communication, communication not only with their own bodies but with others and with the material universe. And as one raises that level of awareness, one raises also the ability to be, to do, to live. (pp. 222-223)     9    He that walketh uprightly walketh surely.

  
Go back to Index The Workability of Scientology.

“The Auditor” Vol. 1. May 1964.      Proverbs, 18.
    It's the little things that make Scientology work, not the big crashing reasons why the preclear's mind isn't perfect.
    It isn't finding what's wrong with the preclear that actually counts, it's the auditor's craftsmanlike attention to the little points of auditing that makes for big gains.
    Just one effective, received acknowledgement that makes the preclear know he has been acknowledged may be worth a dozen processes!
    An auditor becomes an auditor when he or she finds out that it's the basics that count.
    And this can be very hard to teach. The auditor who is so sure that all the errors are explained by the condition of the preclear seldom gets results. And its results that count. You can get results with Scientology and get them rather easily, too, so long as you know that the way the auditing is administered to the preclear is more important than the process run.
    An auditor who consistently fails to get results is always the auditor who is most sure that all the errors for failure lay with the preclear or Scientology, and never with the auditor's own basics.
    How difficult it is to see one's self! How easy it is to blame the other fellow.
    When I first started to teach by self-appreciation of one's own auditing here on the Saint Hill Course, even the most veteran auditors were completely baulked. They have surmounted this now, but it was a mighty high hurdle for a while. The saga of it is quite funny. I had the auditor give a session which was recorded on a tape. Then I had the auditor listen to his own session to find out his or her errors in basics.
    I found that the auditor made the session always and the preclear never. The preclear got better because the auditor audited with smooth basics, or got roughed up because the basics skidded a bit . . .
    You'd think this would be easy to learn; but no.
    An auditing session gets wins only when the auditor is right there running it and running it smoothly.
    The whole essence of auditing is not finding what is wrong with the preclear and hammering at it. That's a medical-surgical approach, not a way to betterment. The essence of auditing is A.R.C. handled and controlled by the auditor.
    The auditor gives the preclear something to answer. The preclear answers it and when the preclear has answered it to his or her satisfaction, the auditor acknowledges it. That's auditing. That's why auditing works. That's why the tone arm moves. That's why the preclear gets better . . .
    Scientology has been getting fine results for a dozen years. In the hands of a good auditor, there are no big case failures. So it isn't the techniques.
    It's this: what is a good auditor?
    A good auditor is one who knows Scientology and its techniques and who audits with all basics in. That's a primary thing we stress in training here at Saint Hill.
    15    The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.

    33    Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
    34    Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
    35    For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.
    36    But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul; and they that hate me love death.
St. John, 3.
    5    Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit*, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
    6    That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit**
    7    Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Go back to Index Overts, What lies behind them?

“Professional Auditor's Bulletins” No. 223, Sept. 1965.      Proverbs, 28.
    I recently made a very basic discovery on the subject of overts and would like to rapidly make a note of it for the record.
    You can call this the “Cycle of an Overt”.
    4.  A being appears to have a motivator.
    3.  This is because of an overt the being has done.
    2.  The being committed an overt because he didn't understand something.
    1.  The being didn't understand something because a word or symbol was not understood.
    Thus all caved-in conditions, illness, etc., can be traced back to a misunderstood symbol, strange as that may seem.
     It goes like this:
    1.  A being doesn't get the meaning of a word or symbol.
    2.  This causes the being to misunderstand the area of the symbol or word (who used it, whatever it applied to).
    3.  This causes the being to feel different from, or antagonistic toward, the user or whatever of the symbol, and so makes it all right to commit an overt.
    4.  Having committed the overt, the being now feels he has to have a motivator, and so feels caved in.
    This is the stuff of which Hades is made. This is the trap. This is why people get sick. This is stupidity and lack of ability.
    The trick is locating the area where the preclear has one of these.
This is discussed further in Saint Hill lecture of 3 September, 1964, but is too important a discovery to leave only in tape form.
    The cycle is Misunderstood word or symbol—separation from ARC with the things associated with the word or symbol—overt committed—motivator felt necessary to justify the overt—decline of freedom, activeness, intelligence, well being and health. 
    Knowing this and the technology of auditing, one can then handle and clean these symbols and words and produce the gains, for the things causing the decline have been located and blown.
    13    He that covereth* his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
*(cover = conceal)
Proverbs, 11.
    17    The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.
Proverbs, 11.
    27    He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.
Proverbs, 28.
    10    Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit:
St. Luke, 18.
    14    For every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
St. John, 3.
    20    For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Proverbs, 26.
    27    Whoso diggeth a pit shall fail therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.
Proverbs, 26.
    28    A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.
St. John, 5.
    14    Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole, sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon thee.

    Overt-Motivator Sequence mechanism

“Dianetics and Scientology: Technical Dictionary” A.D. 1975      John, 8.
    OVERT-MOTIVATOR SEQUENCE,
    1.  if a fellow does an overt, he will then believe he's got to have a motivator or that he has had a motivator. (“Anatomy of the human Mind Congress” Lecture 2, 31 Dec 60)
    2.  the sequence wherein someone who has committed an overt has to claim the existence of motivators. The motivators are then likely to be used to justify committing further overt acts. (“The Phoenix Lectures Glossary” 1968)
    32    And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
    33    They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
    34    Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
    35    And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
    36    If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

    LOGIC 22.    THE HUMAN MIND IS AN OBSERVER, POSTULATOR, CREATOR AND STORAGE PLACE OF KNOWLEDGE.      “And how know they, who from myself they hear of myself, whether I say true; seeing ‘no man knows what is in man, but the spirit of man which is in him’ (1 Cor. 2:11). But if they hear from thee of themselves they cannot say ‘the Lord lieth’ for what is it they hear from thee of themselves but to know themselves?”

    “As far as psychosomatic illnesses are concerned-derangements of the body, malformations, malfunctions-the thetan can care for these with great ease once he has been brought up the Tone Scale. He will then care for them automatically and put the body into excellent condition.” page 56.     “Entrust Truth, whatsoever thou hast from the Truth and thou shalt lose nothing and thy decay shall bloom again, and all thy diseases be healed and thy mortal parts be reformed and renewed.”

    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.

    AXIOM 44.    THETA (THE STATIC) HAS NO LOCATION IN MATTER, ENERGY, SPACE OR TIME. IT IS CAPABLE OF CONSIDERATION.

    AXIOM 35.    THE ULTIMATE TRUTH IS A STATIC.
A Static has no mass, meaning, mobility, no wave-length, no time, no location in space, no space. This has the technical name of ‘Basic Truth’.
     Revealed it is not dazzling,
Hidden, it is not dark,
Infinite, it cannot be defined,
It stretches far back
to that nameless state
which existed before the creation.
It is called the form of the formless,
and the image of non-existence,
It is called the mystery.
Meet it, you cannot see its face;
Follow it, you cannot see its back.
By adhering to the Tao of the past
You will master the existence of the present
And be able to know the origin of the past.
This is called the clue of the Tao.
(from Chapter 14)
There is a thing inherent and natural,
Which existed before heaven and earth.
Motionless and fathomless,
It stands alone and never changes;
It pervades everywhere and never becomes exhausted.
It may be regarded as the Creator of the Universe.
I do not know its name.
If I am forced to give it a name,
I call it Tao, and I name it as supreme.
(from Chapter 25)
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
    AXIOM 31.    GOODNESS AND BADNESS, BEAUTIFULNESS AND UGLINESS, ARE ALIKE CONSIDERATIONS AND HAVE NO OTHER BASIS THAN OPINION.

    LOGIC 8.    A DATUM CAN BE EVALUATED ONLY BY A DATUM OF COMPARABLE MAGNITUDE.
     Since the world points up beauty as such,
There is ugliness too.
If goodness is taken as goodness,
Wickedness enters as well.
For is and is not come together;
Hard and easy are complementary;
Long and short are relative;
High and low are comparative;
Pitch and sound make harmony;
Before and after are a sequence.
(from Chapter 2)

The first Four Dynamics:
     Cultivate the Tao yourself,
    and your Virtue will be genuine.
Cultivate it in the home,
    and its Virtue will be abundant.
Cultivate it in the village,
    and the village will endure.
Cultivate it in the realm,
    and the realm will flourish.
Cultivate it in the world,
    and Virtue will be universal.
(from Chapter 54)
    DYNAMIC ONE is the urge toward survival of self.
    DYNAMIC TWO is the urge toward survival through sex or children, and embraces both the sexual act and the care and raising of children.
    DYNAMIC THREE is the urge toward survival through the group or as the group.
    DYNAMIC FOUR is the urge toward survival through all mankind and as all mankind.

GRADIENT: A gradual approach to something, taken step by step, level by level, each step or level being, of itself, easily surmountable—so that, finally, quite complicated and difficult activities or high states of being can be achieved with relative ease. This prin-ciple is applied to both Scientology processing and training.
(from Scientology Abridged Dictionary)
     Regard the small as great; regard the few as many.
Manage the difficult while they are easy;
Manage the great while they are small.
All difficult things in the world start from the easy;
All great things in the world start from the small.
The tree that fills a man's arms arises from a tender shoot;
The nine-storeyed tower is raised from a heap of earth;
A thousand miles’ journey begins from the spot under one's feet.
Therefore the Sage never attempts great things,
    and thus he can achieve what is great.
(from Chapter 63)
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
PAN-DETERMINISM means determining the action of self and others. It means wider determinism than self . . . One is self-determined, then, in any situation in which he is fighting. He is pan-determined in any situation which he is controlling. To become pan-determined rather than only self-determined it is necessary to view both sides.
(from The Fundamentals of Thought)
     Therefore the sage, in order to be above the people,
    must in words keep below them.
In order to be ahead of the people, he must in person
    keep behind them.
Thus when he is above, the people do not feel his burden.
When he is ahead, the people do not feel his hindrance.
Therefore all the world is pleased to hold him in high esteem
    and never get tired of him.
Because he does not compete; therefore no one competes
    with him.
(from Chapter 66)

EFFECT SCALE
Can cause or receive any effect. 40.0 The handling of a problem seems to be simply the increase of ability to confront the problem, and when the problem can be totally confronted, it no longer exists.
(from Scientology: A New Slant on Life)
     Choosing hardship, then, the Wise
Man Never meets with hardship all his life . . . . . .

He who sustains all the reproaches of the country
    can be the master of the land;
He who sustains all the calamities of the country
    can be the king of the world.
(from Chapter 78)
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
    AXIOM 11.(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.
     He who assists a ruler of men with Tao does not force the world
    with arms.
He aims only at carrying out relief, and does not venture to force
    his power upon others . . .
So it comes that relief is done without resorting to force.
(from Chapter 30)
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
    Q2.    THETA CREATES SPACE, ENERGY AND OBJECTS BY POSTULATES.      The non-existent can enter into the impenetrable.
By this I know that non-action is useful.
Teaching without words, utility without action—
Few in the world have come to this.
(from Chapter 43)

By non-action everything can be done.
(from Chapter 47)
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
. . . The reason why one can't learn is one thinks there is nothing there that he doesn't know and he feels he knows it all, so he doesn't learn it . . . He doesn't even know what he doesn't know . . . Study has to do basically and most formally with just really one thing: willingness to know.
(from Introduction to Study)
     Not knowing that one knows is best;
Thinking that one knows when one does not know is sickness.
Only when one becomes sick of this sickness can one be free
    from sickness.
The Sage is never sick; because he is sick of this sickness,
    therefore he is not sick.
(Chapter 71)

 
Glossary of Scientology terms:

     Aberrate:
To bring about a deviation or departure from rationality.
     Affinity:
Degree of liking or affection or lack of it. (This is often expressed as an emotion - enthusiasm towards a person betokens more affinity than apathy.)
     Analytical mind:

This mind consists of visual pictures, either of the past or the physical universe, monitored and presided over by the knowingness of a thetan. The keynote of the analytical mind is awareness; one knows what one is concluding and doing. It combines perceptions of the immediate environment, of the past (via pictures) and estimations of the future into conclusions which are based upon the realities of situations.
     Anchor points:
Specialized kind of dimension point. Those dimension points which demark the outermost boundaries of the space or its corners are called in Scientology anchor-points.
     ARC:
A word made from the initial letters of Affinity, Reality and Communication which together equate to understanding. (These are the three things necessary to the understanding of something - one has to have some affinity for it, it has to be real to him to some degree and he needs some communication with it before he can understand it.)
     Beingness:
The assumption or choosing of a category of identity. Beingness is assumed by oneself or given to oneself, or is attained. Examples of beingness would be one's own name, one's profession, one's physical characteristics, one's role in a game - each and all of these things could be called one's beingness. TO GRANT BEINGNESS means to grant life to something; to permit or allow other people to have beingness.
     Clear:
A Thetan who has no Reactive Mind and who can be at cause knowingly and at will over mental matter, energy, space and time as regards the first dynamic (survival for self). A Clear is a being who has attained this state by completing the Saint Hill Clearing Course and being declared Clear by the Saint Hill Qualifications Division.
     Communication lag:
The time which elapses between the asking of a question or giving of a command and the exact reply to that question or exact compliance with that command.
     Dianetics:
Through thought or mind. Man's most advanced school of the mind founded and developed by L. Ron Hubbard. Dianetics was the route from aberrated or aberrated and ill human to capable human. Scientology is the route from human being to total freedom and total beingness.
     Dimension point:
Any point in a space or at the boundaries of space.
     Dynamic:
The urge, thrust and purpose of life - Survive! - in its eight manifestations.
(1) the urge toward survival of self.; (2) the urge toward survival through sex or children. This dynamic actually has two divisions. Second Dynamic (a) is the sexual act itself and Second Dynamic (b) is the family unit, including the rearing of children.; (3) the urge toward survival through a group of individuals or as a group. Any group or part of an entire class could be considered to be part of the Third Dynamic. The school, the club, the team, the town, the nation are examples of groups.; (4) the urge toward survival through all mankind and as all mankind.; (5) the urge toward survival through life forms such as animals, birds, insects, fish and vegetation, and is the urge to survive as these.; (6) the urge toward survival as the physical universe and has as its components Matter, Energy, Space and Time, from which we derive the word MEST.; (7) the urge toward survival through spirits or as a spirit. Anything spiritual, with or without identity, would come under the Seventh Dynamic. A sub-heading of this Dynamic is ideas and concepts such as beauty, and the desire to survive through these.; (8) the urge toward survival through a Supreme Being, or more exactly, Infinity. This is called the Eighth Dynamic because the symbol of Infinity stood upright makes the numeral “8”.
     MEST:
A word coined from the initials of the components of the Physical Universe: Matter, Energy, Space and Time.
     Motivator:
The consideration that one has been wronged by the action of an individual or group which is dramatized by constant complaint with no real action undertaken to resolve the situation. The consideration is held in order to justify one's own overt acts against that particular individual or group.
     Overt, Overt act:
A harmful or contra-survival act. Precisely, it is an act of commission or omission that harms the greater number of dynamics. A failure to eradicate something or stop someone that would harm broadly would be an overt act. Equally, assistance to something that would harm a greater number of dynamics would also be an overt act.
     Postulate:  (noun)
A conclusion, decision or resolution made by the individual himself on his own self-determinism on data of the past, known or unknown. The postulate is always known. It is made upon the evaluation of data by the individual or on impulse without data. It resolves a problem of the past, decides on problems or observations in the present or sets a pattern for the future.
     Postulate:  (verb)
To conclude, decide or resolve a problem or to set a pattern for the future or to nullify a pattern of the past.
     Preclear:
A person who, through Scientology processes, is finding out more about himself and life.
     Process:
A patterned action, of unvarying steps, done by an auditor and preclear, under the auditor's direction, to release or free the preclear from his aberrations.
     Reactive mind:
That portion of a person's mind which works on a stimulus-response basis (given a certain stimulus, it gives a certain response) which is not under his volitional control and which exerts force and the power of command over his awareness, purposes, thoughts, body and actions.
     Release:
A person who is freed from and not influenced by his Reactive Mind. There are several grades of Release. Each is a distinct and separate step toward total freedom and higher levels of awareness and ability.
     Scientology:
A religious philosophy dealing with the study of knowledge in its fullest sense which, through the application of its technology, can bring about desirable changes in any condition. Scientology is the road to spiritual freedom. (L, scio - knowing; Gr., logos - to study.)
     Terminal:
Anything or anyone that receives, relays or sends a communication (most common usage); also, anything with mass and meaning.
     Thetan:
The person himself - not his body or name, the physical universe, his mind or anything else; that which is aware of being aware; the identity that IS the individual. (From Theta, θ , the Greek symbol for ‘thought’ or perhaps ‘spirit’.)
     Tone Scale:
A scale measuring and relating the various factors of behaviour, emotion, thought, to levels on the scale. (A full description of the Tone Scale and its application in life is contained in the book, “Science of Survival” by L. Ron Hubbard.)
     Two-way Comm:
Two-way Communication’. The action between two people in which each one takes turns expressing fully his ideas on a subject while the other listens attentively. This is, therefore, communication in two directions. (Two-way communication is the basis of any successful and enjoyable personal relationship.)
