I am sitting watching two kids playing an imaginary game with spaceships, laser shields, missiles and intricate plots, rules and challenges.
Their mocked-up worlds are real – very real — to them (and to anyone that wants to play the game). They come up with problems, which they then solve. They create imaginary opponents, who they try to strike down and conquer. And even when they have been struck down, they then create some new lives, new energy or new force that somehow makes the game continue.
We tend to regard child play as so different from every-day life. But is it?
I don’t think so.
We create our own games every day.
We set ourselves goals or things to achieve, and then we work to achieve these through created obstacles, problems and challenges.
If we accomplish what we desired, we feel happy.
And if we don’t then we feel pain, loss and upset, which then becomes another challenge to try again, or to create a new game.
Those Scientology Axioms…

“AXIOM 2. THE STATIC IS CAPABLE OF CONSIDERATIONS, POSTULATES, AND OPINIONS.
“AXIOM 3. SPACE, ENERGY, OBJECTS, FORM AND TIME ARE THE RESULT OF CONSIDERATIONS MADE AND/OR AGREED UPON OR NOT BY THE STATIC, AND ARE PERCEIVED SOLELY BECAUSE THE STATIC CONSIDERS THAT IT CAN PERCEIVE THEM.
“AXIOM 4. SPACE IS A VIEWPOINT OF DIMENSION.
“AXIOM 5. ENERGY CONSISTS OF POSTULATED PARTICLES IN SPACE.
“AXIOM 6. OBJECTS CONSIST OF GROUPED PARTICLES AND SOLIDS.
“AXIOM 7. TIME IS BASICALLY A POSTULATE THAT SPACE AND PARTICLES WILL PERSIST.
“AXIOM 8. THE APPARENCY OF TIME IS THE CHANGE OF POSITION OF PARTICLES IN SPACE.
“AXIOM 9. CHANGE IS THE PRIMARY MANIFESTATION OF TIME.
“AXIOM 10. THE HIGHEST PURPOSE IN THIS UNIVERSE IS THE CREATION OF AN EFFECT.” LRH
