A DESCRIPTION OF SCIENTOLOGY
From knowledge of a mans level on the scale, much can be determined about his attitudes, behavior and survival potential.
When a man is nearly dead, he can be said to be in chronic apathy. And he behaves in certain specific ways. This is 0.05 on the Tone Scale chart.
When a man is chronically sad about his losses, he is in grief. And, once again, behaves in a predictable manner. This is 0.5 on the chart.
When a person is not yet so low as grief but realizes losses are impending, or is fixed chronically at this level by past losses, he is in fear, around 1.0 on the chart.
Just above fear, past or impending losses generate hatred in the person. However, he dare not express this as such, so the hatred comes forth covertly. This is 1.1, covert hostility.
An individual fighting against threatened losses is in anger and manifests predictable aspects of behavior. This is 1.5.
The person who is merely suspicious that loss may take place, or who has become fixed at this level, is resentful. He is in antagonism, which is 2.0 on the chart.
Above antagonism, the situation of a person is not good enough for him to be enthusiastic, not bad enough for him to be resentful. He has lost some goals and cannot immediately locate others. He is said to be in boredom, or at 2.5 on the Tone Scale chart.
At 3.0 on the chart, a person has a conservative, cautious aspect toward life, but is reaching his goals.
At 4.0 the individual is enthusiastic, happy and vital.
Very few people are naturally at 4.0 on the Tone Scale. A charitable average is probably around 2.8.
