“Life is basically a Static.
“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.” LRH
This very simple and powerful statement is the basic premise that all of Scientology builds upon.
For people who have no reality on anything spiritual — and consider they are the body, they are mud, they are brain, and they live only once — this basic axiom is a significant jump in reality.
For those who have any experience with being separate from the body and/or the ability to postulate and perceive – it is a major shift from the average Joe, who worries about dying and death (and is positive that there is nothing he can do to improve his lot in life, in a dangerous and menacing world).
In a radio interview last week I heard a University Professor of Philosophy preach about how you are your brain and your body — and nothing more. And, in his view, this is why physical fitness is so important — as by honing your body performance, you can enjoy a better quality of “life”.
Hmmm — maybe he has a basic misunderstood on philosophy.
When people ask me if Scientology really is a religion, I answer yes — and I explain Axiom 1. It is not just lip service or an excuse to get tax exemption in the US — it is actually what makes LRH’s Scientology technology so powerful.
There is more to life than the body we inhabit. There is a technology to improve your potential and abilities. The games that exist in the modern world (relationships, gadgets, money, toys) can certainly be played — but there is a much bigger picture of what is actually happening.
And from the moment when you pop out of your head in an auditing session – or stretch your anchor points out to the horizon and touch the mountains – or make a decision and have it instantly occur – Scientology is seen to be in a different category to other fields of thought or science.
As a result, you are impelled to learn more Scientology, to discover more, to adventure more.
At least that is what I have experienced. All starting with Axiom 1.
