The Total Causation Philosophy of Scientology


Scientology views the human being as a powerful Thetan trapped in a meat body and impeded by his reactive mind. They believe that as such they are capable of formidable feats when they can set the reactive mind aside. This transpires through an impressive number of Scientology concepts and goes a long way to explain abuses in the Sea Org:

  1. Necessity level - that will call on the power of the Thetan when people are desperate. This is the kind of power you see in Hollywood films when the hero really-really-really must-must-must succeed. Scientologists often use the example of the mother who was able to lift up a car to save her baby.
     

  2. Tone 40 - is the total intention with which you can displace mountains. This is the full power of the Thetan, the ultra top on the tone scale. It is infinite and can achieve anything.
     

  3. Reactive Mind - The reactive mind (together with cosmic implants) is the cumulated case of the Thetan that trims down its power. While the reactive mind is what is being addressed by auditing, the person must be able to put it aside while at work (or as an auditor) for the glorious cause of clearing the planet. This is where the necessity level kicks in.
     

  4. Total Responsibility - The Thetan is all powerful. Everything that happens to him is of his own making. Bad things happen to him because he is basically good. When he does something bad, he withdraws from the area he has damaged, and thus withdraws from its own powers and therefore declines. He also creates a "motivator", i.e. something bad happening to him, to justify his bad action. Therefore, he is totally responsible for what he does and for what happens to him. Because of this, Scientology considers that there is no reason for a person not being able to do his job in clearing the planet if he really wants to.
     

  5. Confront - is the very first thing you learn in Scientology training. The person must face others, and must face his problems in order to resolve them. When auditing others, the auditor must confront, be in PT (Present Time), so he can set aside his own reactive mind. The same must a loyal staff member in shiny armor do.
     

  6. The Only Way Out is Through - When you are in the middle of an incident during auditing, there is no other way than continue until you are through with it. Doing otherwise will have for effect of being stuck n the incident and would be much worst than not going into the incident in the first place. Therefore, no matter how hard it is, you must persist through the incident until it is "flattened". This concept is carried forward to real life, where you must persist through hardship conditions until you successfully go through and out..
     

  7. Being Cause - The Thetan is either Cause or Effect. Obviously, Scientology expect staff members to be "At Cause". The thetan also has the power to make things happen by postulates only, and he can create his own reality and anything he really wants..
     

  8. Make it Go Right - is the phrase that sums up all the above. In the high necessity of saving the planet, the person must set his reactive mind aside and confront difficulties until he is through with them. Through Tone 40 intention he must be at Cause. There are no excuses, and the person is ultimately responsible for everything he does and everything that happens to him.
     

  9. Counter intentions - if the person isn't able to call on the power of the Thetan in forwarding the glorious aims of Scientology it means he has "counter intentions" to that aim. This could be because he has doubts, misunderstood words, and of course because maybe he is an SPs;
     

  10. Screaming - is a way to use Tone 40 powers to "remove counter-intentions", get people to set their reactive mind aside, and call on them to use their Thetan powers to make it go right. Because of these concepts, it is perfectly OK in Scientology to scream at people from the top of your head, and in fact is a common practice.
     

  11. Get your Stats Up - Everything in a Scientology organization is considered a service that helps others, and is being represented by an objective product. That product in turn is quantified by a statistic. The more your stats go up, the more you produce, and the more you help others. Scientology does not accept stats going down. They have to constantly go up, the steeper the better. There is no excuse. Remember, the Thetan is all powerful. This also defines how good the person is and explains why "upstat" people can get away with crimes, because in getting their stats up they help a lot of people so the minor things they do are not that important.
     

  12. Others - You will find many other concepts in Scientology to go along that central belief line.

Now... go back to the horror stories you read on the Internet, in particular those involving the Sea Org, and see how the vast majority of reported abuses find their root in this basic Scientology concept : ""THE SUPREME TEST OF A THETAN IS THE ABILITY TO MAKE THINGS GO RIGHT".

However, this is not all. See Sea Org abuses on my valid/invalid Scientology criticism page for a more complete explanation.
