Principles of Scientology
The basic principles of scientology are those principles of life which Lafayette Ron Hubbard researched and found to be applicable throughout all of life.
Such principles as 'The Stable Datum", The ARC Triangle" The "KRC Triangle", The "Overt Motivator Sequence", to name just a few, are all principles that anyone, scientologist or not, once understood, can observes easily for oneself.
It does not take a university degree to understand life, just the ability to observe and look, which is what Hubbard did. He looked and looked and looked and sifted and researched and tested and developed and located and isolated those factors that go to make up life.
This enabled him to develop methods of assisting people to enhance their life with exercises and specific activities which the individual is then able to apply to themselves and others.
This research also enabled him to codify life into a set of axioms. These axioms describe life and form the backbone of the philosophy and its application.
They assist a person in becoming enlightened and assist to increase their awareness.
In the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, the late Doug Adams portrayed the answer to life, the universe and everything in it as being the number 42.
From the basic principles of scientology, the answer to life, the universe and everything in it may not be quite as simplistic but is certainly obtainable from the axioms and in various books, tapes and technical bulletins by Lafayette Ron Hubbard.
