Definition: A Life Static has no mass, no motion, no wavelength, no location in space or in time. It has the ability to postulate and perceive. A s-i sness is the condition of immediate creation without persistence, and is the condition of existence which exists at the moment of creation and the moment of destruction, and is different from other considerations in that it does not contain survival. Alte r-i sness is the consideration which introduces change, and therefore time and persistence, into an A s-i sness to obtain persistency. Isness is an apparency of existence brought about by the continuous alteration of an A s-i sness. This is called, when agreed upon, Reality.

Chris Shelton had fun with L. This is inconvenient since I have made it a part of my life to criticize his writings and therefore, from time to time, I do have to actually go back and read the stuff. Going back into this stuff feels like the proverbial frog in the slowly boiling pot.
The mind reels from the senseless generalities and bizarre conclusions Hubbard draws from the everyday vicissitudes of our flawed human lives. Maybe the first time he ever studied architecture or the first time he ever built a church or anything like that, why, it was a whole bunch of Gothic arches, you see?
See, if he knew it, he would just keep on knowing it. Somehow this blather is supposed to actually make sense and at one time, I actually thought it did. The only claim made for these axioms is that by their use certain definite and predictable results can be obtained.
Following this, we have a few more modifications and new axioms and definitions presented in Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health. These are mostly definitions and statements of opinion rather than axioms with scientific merit. To cite just one exception, and one that has entangled evolutionary biologists for years, what about when an animal purposefully sacrifices itself for the sake of altruism or honor or duty or so that others might live? Gauging the validity of non-existent data is not something I think many of us need concern ourselves with.
If Hubbard had something new to bring to the table, it perhaps would have made this Logic necessary or useful. Creating an integrated, internally consistent and logical system of thought is not an easy task and very few people in history have even attempted it, so I really do want to give Hubbard the benefit of the doubt here that he could be on to something. But these are just too pedestrian, too simplistic, to be taken seriously.
If only more people could have seen that back in , the world would be a slightly better place now. But I digress. By the mere awareness of a thing, we are influenced by it. This is hardly a revelatory or necessary thing to say. So, can I do that? You bet. How about a 2-month old baby who is ready for his or her first immunizations? This baby has no idea what is about to happen to him and no amount of coddling or talking or pictures are going to give him that idea because a 2-month old is wholly incapable of that level of understanding.
There are whole volumes of knowledge about vaccines and immunization and disease which this baby has no clue of but all of which can very much influence his young life. Hubbard seems to think that if black is true, white must be true too.
This is what I mean by his sloppy thinking. Stored in three dimensions and with all the perceptics available to the person at the time sight, smell, taste, weight, etc , Hubbard claimed without any testing or proof that we make 72 of these facsimiles every second.
So, all data that exists anywhere, according to this Logic, is only stored in our minds. This would be a highly debatable point in any Rhetoric or Philosophy class, similar to such questions as whether Objective Truth is a thing or if our morality is determined by our religion or our religion is determined by our morality. Data could be considered to only be data because of our perception and evaluation of it, but I reject this idea personally.
I think that data, as defined earlier, exists regardless of whether we perceive or are aware of it or not. And as I pointed out above, things can have an effect on us regardless of whether we are aware of or perceive those things. And it was interesting how much Hubbard patted himself on the back about this when lecturing for the first time about these in No other philosophers or scientists in history I could find anywhere had made such distinctions about definitions and it appears to me to not only be unnecessary but actually a bit ridiculous.
Hubbard dreamed of a life free of consequences and exerted his will over others to create that life. For a short while, he even succeeded with his absolute command over the international Scientology network in the early s, students flooding to England despite having to run an immigration gauntlet, a fledgling spy network so he could flex his muscles at any critics and basically so much money being thrown at him that he would never want for anything again.
Love is the law, love under will. I think to a sloppy thinker like Hubbard, his reading of Crowley was that through practicing Magick, he could overcome his doubts, fears and uncertainties, live in tune with his own Guardian Spirit and finally be able to deal with his perceived enemies exactly as he had always dreamed of doing.
He believed he would finally be able to live the kind of life he always wanted, one in which people would love, respect, admire and fear him and his Great Works. To his way of thinking, his way was the best way and anyone who got in his road was a simple obstacle to be removed with whatever degree of force was necessary. After a whirlwind two years of success and fame followed by bankruptcy and divorce, Hubbard found himself in Wichita, patting himself on the back over his personal genius while writing these ridiculous Axioms and Logics.
Don Purcell rued the day he ever staked Hubbard to set up shop in Wichita and was relieved to finally be rid of him. Hubbard relocated once again, this time to Phoenix to start the official Church of Scientology.
He spoke only a handful of times about the Axioms and Logics after that. Like so many other things that he invented, after they had outlived their gimmick factor, they were cast on the rubbish heap. Oh well. This is fun, a script for canvassers trying to get Scientologists to come to the Birthday Event in Clearwater on March 16…. We were hoping to hold that barbecue at a former Scientology mission building in Riverside, but the sheer distance between Los Angeles and Riverside and the lack of public transportation in Southern California made our original plans problematic.
