WHAT IS SCIENTOLOGY?
The Dianetic Axioms
THE AXIOMS OF DIANETICS AND SCIENTOLOGY
Axiom 35Effort of an organism to survive or succumb is physical motion of a life organism at a given moment in time through space.
DEFINITION: Motion is any change in orientation in space.
DEFINITION: Force is random effort.
DEFINITION: Effort is directed force.
Axiom 36An organisms effort can be to remain at rest or persist in a given motion.
Static state has position in time, but an organism which is remaining positionally in a static state, if alive, is still continuing a highly complex pattern of motion, such as the heartbeat, digestion, etc.
The efforts of organisms to survive or succumb are assisted, compelled or opposed by the efforts of other organisms, matter, energy, space and time.
DEFINITION: Attention is a motion which must remain at an optimum effort.
Attention is aberrated by becoming unfixed and sweeping at random or becoming too fixed without sweeping.
Unknown threats to survival when sensed cause attention to sweep without fixing.
Known threats to survival when sensed cause attention to fix.
Axiom 37The ultimate goal of LAMBDA is infinite survival.
Axiom 38Death is abandonment by THETA of a life organism or race or species where these can no longer serve THETA in its goals of infinite survival.
