Some have registered protests in the comments section to my sometimes being cryptic. In particular, recently some folks thought this origination by me was too mystical to grok:
The solidity of the universe is created by energy of opposite opposing forces. We don’t have to be governed by them. Let’s not. The dichotomies are a bitch – and as long as we fixate on identification (particlarly our own) it becomes a progressively worse bitch.
I was invited to elaborate, or explain myself.
I’ll give it my best shot.
If you listen to Hubbard’s lectures and read the books on the Academy Levels auditor training there is no need for further explanation.
If you read the Scientology OT II materials there is no need for further explanation, except perhaps to help clarify technical mechanics from mythology.
If you read the Tao of Physics there is no need for further explanation.
If you read, and contemplate the Tao Te Ching, there is no need for further explanation.
To those who are not inclined to take me up on the reading recommendations I periodically offer on this blog, here is
The reactivity of humans is largely brought about by their mistaking the physical universe for themselves. The more one clings to, relies upon, and validates the laws of the physical universe as controlling spirit, the greater the confusion.
The physical universe is made up of ever-changing, exchanging and converting energies. Those energies consist of attracting and repelling (or positive and negative) forces; sometimes referred to in Scientology as ‘dichotomies’. Those forces can be affected by spirit. They can also affect spirit, but only if spirit considers they can.
Perhaps the greatest factor in convincing spirit that it is effect of the physical is its proclivity toward assuming an identity, a physical being. The more one mocks up the reality of the identity, the deeper he becomes enmeshed into and acts at the effect of the physical universe.
If one really wants to lose sight of his or her own spiritual nature and become thoroughly entrenched into the physical, the most sure-fire method is to act as if one is part of the physical universe. In other words, start playing the positive/negative charge game for keeps. The way to make it more and more solid and irreversible is to get real enamored with one’s identity and start to oppose other identities one considers a threat to that identity. Mocking up of energy flows between such terminals creates more and more solidity and fixidity. Before long opposing forces close in on one another so firmly that they become a bigger one, i.e. that which you resist, you become. More solidity, more fixidity, more mass, more confusion, more force, more violence. And, though one would not think, less identity, less individuality, less free thought, and more ‘gee, we’re all one homogenous flock of sheep after all.’
If one reads Memoirs of a Scientology Warrior, one might see how these factors even prevailed upon a subject that was originally intended to free folk from them.
