The Dianetic Axioms


Axiom 167

As the needs of any organism are met it rises higher and higher in its efforts along the dynamics.

An organism which achieves ARC with itself can better achieve ARC with sex in the future; having achieved this it can achieve ARC with groups; having achieved this, it can achieve ARC with mankind, etc.

Axiom 168

Affinity, reality and communication coexist in an inextricable relationship.

The coexistent relationship between affinity, reality and communication is such that none can be increased without increasing the other two and none can be decreased without decreasing the other two.

Axiom 169

Any aesthetic product is a symbolic facsimile or combination of facsimiles of theta or physical universes in varied randomities and volumes of randomities with the interplay of tones.

Axiom 170

An aesthetic product is an interpretation of the universes by an individual or group mind.

Axiom 171

Delusion is the postulation by the imagination of occurrences in areas of plus or minus randomity.
