The Dianetic Axioms


Axiom 118

An organism cannot become aberrated unless it has agreed upon that aberration, has been in communication with a source of aberration and has had affinity for the aberrator.

Axiom 119

Agreement with any source, contra- or prosurvival, postulates a new reality for the organism.

Axiom 120

Nonsurvival courses, thoughts and actions require non-optimum effort.

Axiom 121

Every thought has been preceded by physical action.

Axiom 122

The mind does with thought as it has done with entities in the physical universe.

Axiom 123

All effort concerned with pain is concerned with loss.

Organisms hold pain and engrams to them as a latent effort to prevent loss of some portion of the organism. All loss is a loss of motion.

Axiom 124

The amount of counter-effort the organism can overcome is proportional to the THETA endowment of the organism, modified by the physique of that organism.
