The Dianetic Axioms


Axiom 111

Self-determinism consists of maximal affinity, reality and communication.

Axiom 112

Affinity is the cohesion of THETA.

Affinity manifests itself as the recognition of similarity of efforts and goals amongst organisms by those organisms.

Axiom 113

Reality is the agreement upon perceptions and data in the physical universe.

All that we can be sure is real is that on which we have agreed is real. Agreement is the essence of reality.

Axiom 114

Communication is the interchange of perception through the material universe between organisms or the perception of the material universe by sense channels.

Axiom 115

Self-determinism is the THETA control of the organism.

Axiom 116

A self-determined effort is that counter-effort which has been received into the organism in the past and integrated into the organism for its conscious use.

Axiom 117

The components of self-determinism are affinity, communication and reality.

Self-determinism is manifested along each dynamic.
