The Dianetic Axioms


Axiom 39

The reward of an organism engaging upon survival activity is pleasure.

Axiom 40

The penalty of an organism failing to engage upon survival activity, or engaging in nonsurvival activity, is pain.

Axiom 41

The cell and virus are the primary building blocks of life organisms.

Axiom 42

The virus and cell are matter and energy animated and motivated in space and time by THETA.

Axiom 43

THETA mobilizes the virus and cell in colonial aggregations to increase potential motion and accomplish effort.

Axiom 44

The goal of viruses and cells is survival in space through time.

Axiom 45

The total mission of higher organisms, viruses and cells is the same as that of the virus and cell.

Axiom 46

Colonial aggregations of viruses and cells can be imbued with more THETA than they inherently contained.

Life energy joins any group, whether a group of organisms or group of cells composing an organism. Here we have personal entity, individuation, etc.
