WHAT IS SCIENTOLOGY?
The Dianetic Axioms
THE AXIOMS OF DIANETICS AND SCIENTOLOGY
Axiom 161The control center attempts the halting or lengthening of time, the expansion or contraction of space and the decrease or increase of energy and matter.
This is a primary source of invalidation, and it is also a primary source of aberration.
Axiom 162Pain is the balk of effort by counter-effort in great intensity, whether that effort is to remain at rest or in motion.
Axiom 163Perception, including pain, can be exhausted from an area of plus or minus randomity, still leaving the effort and counter-effort of that plus or minus randomity.
Axiom 164The rationality of the mind depends upon an optimum reaction toward time.
DEFINITION: Sanity, the computation of futures.
DEFINITION: Neurotic, the computation of present time only.
DEFINITION: Psychotic, computation only of past situations.
Axiom 165Survival pertains only to the future.
COROLLARY: Succumb pertains only to the present and past.
Axiom 166An individual is as happy as he can perceive survival potentials in the future.
