L Ron Hubbard wrote the following in 1954:
Axiom One: 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 to perceive.)
Definition: In Scientology, the word ‘postulate’ means to cause a thinkingness or consideration. It is a specially applied word and is defined as causative thinkingness.
Axiom Two: The static is capable of considerations, postulates and opinions.
Axiom Three: Space, energy, objects, form and time are the results 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 Four: Space is a viewpoint of dimension. (Space is caused by looking out from a point. The only actuality of space is the agreed-upon consideration that one perceives through something and this we call space.)
Axiom Five: Energy consists of postulated particles in space. (One considers that energy exists and that he can perceive energy. One also considers that energy behaves according to certain agreed-upon laws. These assumptions and considerations are the totality of energy.)
Axiom Six: Objects consist of grouped particles and solids.
Axiom Seven: Time is basically a postulate that space and particles will persist. (The rate of their persistence is what we measure with clocks and the motion of heavenly bodies.)
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 the universe is the creation of an effect.

Both of these articles were published in Psychology Today.
Is it not a travesty that corporate Scientologists would be burned at the stake (figuratively) if they were to dare to even take a peek at such a magazine? Is it not a travesty that Scientology Inc is busy using the billions you have donated to them to stage public demonstrations of their flat earth mentality while science catches up with L Ron Hubbard?
Thank God for independence in religion, science and other vehicles of truth-seeking.
Transcend or descend.
