The Scientology Axioms


Axiom 39

Life poses problems for its own solution.

Axiom 40

Any problem, to be a problem, must contain a lie. If it were truth, it would unmock.

An “unsolvable problem” would have the greatest persistence. It would also contain the greatest number of altered facts. To make a problem, one must introduce alter-isness.

Axiom 41

That into which alter-isness is introduced becomes a problem.

Axiom 42

Matter, energy, space and time persists because it is a problem.

It is a problem because it contains alter-isness.

Axiom 43

Time is the primary source of untruth.

Time states the untruth of consecutive considerations.

Axiom 44

Theta, the static, has no location in matter, energy, space or time, but is capable of consideration.

Axiom 45

Theta can consider itself to be placed, at which moment it becomes placed, and to that degree a problem.

Axiom 46

Theta can become a problem by its considerations, but then becomes MEST.

MEST is that form of theta which is a problem.
