The Dianetic Axioms


Axiom 188

Absolute good and absolute evil do not exist in the MEST universe.

Axiom 189

That which is good for an organism may be defined as that which promotes the survival of that organism.

COROLLARY: Evil may be defined as that which inhibits or brings plus or minus randomity into the organism, which is contrary to the survival motives of the organism.

Axiom 190

Happiness consists in the act of bringing alignment into hitherto resisting plus or minus randomity. Neither the act or action of attaining survival, nor the accomplishment of this act itself, brings about happiness.

Axiom 191

Construction is an alignment of data.

COROLLARY: Destruction is a plus or minus randomity of data. The effort of constructing is the alignment toward the survival of the aligning organism. Destruction is the effort of bringing randomity into an area.

Axiom 192

Optimum survival behavior consists of effort in the maximum survival interest in everything concerned in the dynamics.

Axiom 193

The optimum survival solution of any problem would consist of the highest attainable survival for every dynamic concerned.

Axiom 194

The worth of any organism consists of its value to the survival of its own THETA along any dynamic.
