Our society stresses that thinking is a good thing and that thoughtfulness and consideration are more survival that impulsive decisions.
Western society invalidates a person who simply does something based on his inherent knowingness, as this is considered naive and to that degree, impromptu, unplanned, unsophisticated and unintelligent.
It is stressed that we need to think carefully, and not make decisions lightly
As I have progressed up The Bridge, my experience is different. When auditing strips away facsimiles and past aberrations, my own space gets quieter and quieter. There is less thinking and more knowing. There is less mental ‘noise’ and certainly less mental procrastination.
Recently restudying LRH’s book 8-80, I understood better why that is.
Life is a mirror, and our mind is our suitcase that carries all of these reflections. Our mental baggage, over lifetimes, gets pretty cumbersome, and soon it is all about the baggage and we have forgotten who we actually are, and where we were going in the first place.
Auditing is better than a baggage carrier. It is actually like a Spring clean where one realises that we don’t need these zillion bags, boxes, suitcases and files. Toss them out, and OMG, travel (and life) has suddenly become a hell of a lot lighter.
And so has your thinkingness, and your knowingness.
This baggage was not you in the first place — just the same as the old favourite sweater that you have been been refusing to throw out for sentimental reasons, is also not you.
Life is a static — and whilst we can become fixated on the mirrored reflections that can be generated easily — they get you nowhere, and they are truly, just reflections.
“Life is a static, according to the Axioms. A static has no motion. It has no wave length. The proofs and details of this are elsewhere in Scientology.
“This static has the peculiarity of acting as a “mirror”. It records and holds the images of motion. It even can create motion and record and hold the image of that. It records also space and time in order to record motion which is, after all, only “change in space through time”. Played against motion as a kinetic, the static can produce live energy.
“In a mind, any mind, the basic beingness is found to be a static on which motion can be recorded, and which, acting against motion, produces energy.
“A memory is a recording of the physical universe. It contains—any memory—a time index (when it happened) and a pattern of motion. As a lake reflects the trees and moving clouds, so does a memory reflect the physical universe. Sight, sound, pain, emotion, effort, conclusions, and many other things are recorded in this static for any given instant of observation.
“Such a memory we call a “facsimile”. The mind, examining a facsimile it has made, can see it, feel it, hear it, re-experience the pain in it, the effort, the emotion.
“There are billions of facsimiles available to any mind. Billions of billions. These facsimiles can be brought into present time by the environment, and “unseen” or “unknown” by the awareness of awareness of the mind, can reimpress their pains, efforts, and aberrations upon the being, thus making one less liable to survive. All unknowingnesses, confusion’s, aberrations, psychosomatic ills are traceable to facsimiles.
“One believes he can use any facsimile he has ever received. He has been hurt. He uses the facsimile of being hurt to hurt another.
“But since one survives as well as everything else survives, to hurt another is wrong. One regrets the injury, seeking to turn back time. Thus the facsimile he used becomes interlocked with his facsimile of trying to use it and both facsimiles “hang up” and travel with present time. One even gets the pain he seeks to inflict on another, this being the action against him of the facsimile he sought to give, by action, to another. It startles the preclear, when run through a boyhood fight, wherein he hit another boy in the eye, to feel the pain in his own eye at the instant of the blow. And so it is with all inflicted injuries.
“This is a simple matter of the interaction of the pictures of energy.
“This is a “maybe”, indecision, inaction. This is aberration—trying to do unto others what was done to you—good or bad.
“An interplay of static against motion or between two classes of motion, one relatively static to the other, can and does produce active electrical energy in beings of different characteristics and potentials. This makes a living being an electrical field more capable of high potential and varieties of waves than are known to nuclear physics, of which Scientology is a basic.
“This created energy played lightly over a “facsimile” reactivates it and causes it to bear upon a being once more. This is an activity of thinking.
“A “facsimile” brought into play by a moment of intense activity may afterwards, when the being is again producing only normal energy output, “refuse” to be handled by the lower energy. This facsimile then can trap the energy of a being and turn upon him the pain, emotion, and other things recorded in the facsimile. The facsimile thus can absorb energy and give pain, especially when the being holding it has forgotten it or does not perceive it. This is restimulation.
“By concentrating a live energy flow upon a facsimile directly, the being can erase,
disintegrate, or “explode” or “implode” it.
“As heavy facsimiles are the hidden source of human aberration and psychosomatic illness, their erasure or better handling by the being is intensely desirable.
“The remedy of human aberration and illness is a minor goal of Scientology. Its discoveries make this possible.” LRH, Book: Scientology 8-80
