When in Doubt,
Communicate ...

Compiled by Ruth Minshull and Edward M. Lefson

INTRODUCTION

Any one of us can examine a current problem pulling at our attention and usually discover that communication in some form will handle the difficul¬ty—a confrontation, a phone call, a letter, a direct statement of one's views, or getting an answer to a question.
"When in doubt, communicate ..." This compact one-liner nearly always rescues a person who is willing to solve his quandry intelligently, for the basic nature of most problems is an incomplete communication. Once verified, the maxim seems obvious. Many of us feel that we always knew it.
This is characteristic of the observations on hu¬manity by noted contemporary philosopher L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology* and one of the most influential men of the century.
You may rediscover many familiar concepts in this book; some may be intriguingly new; possibly others will provoke your disagreement.
In any case, we know you'll find the exploration refreshing.
Ruth Minshull


"SCIENTOLOGY means "the study of knowledge in its fullest sense." (Also see Glossary.)
IMPORTANT NOTE


In reading this book be very certain you never go past a word you do not fully understand.
The only reason a person gives up a study or becomes confused or unable to learn is that he or she has gone past a word or phrase that was not understood.
If the material becomes confusing or you can't seem to grasp it, there will be a word just earlier that you have not understood. Don't go any further, but go back to BEFORE you got into trouble, find the misunderstood word and get it defined, using any good dictionary or the Glossary at the back of this book.





They [people] learn to keep their mouths shut, and it's the wrong les¬son. When in doubt, talk. When in doubt, communicate….you'll be very successful all the way along the line if you just remember that.

... your potentialities are a great deal better than anyone ever permitted you to believe.
—SELF ANALYSIS



Man succeeds because he adjusts his environment to him, not by adjusting himself to the environment.
—SELF ANALYSIS



GOODNESS AND BADNESS, BEAU¬TIFULNESS AND UGLINESS, ARE ALIKE CONSIDERATIONS AND HAVE NO OTHER BASIS THAN OPINION.
Axiom 31, AXIOMS AND LOGICS



No man is happy without a goal, and no man can be happy without faith in his own ability to reach that goal.
—SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL


The basic individual is not a buried unknown or a different person, but an intensity of all that is best and most able in the person. The basic individ¬ual equals the same person minus his pain and dramatizations.
—DIANETICS: THE ORIGINAL THESIS



The only richness there is is under-standing.
-SCIENTOLOGY 8-8008



Ideas, and not battles mark the forward progress of mankind. Individ¬uals, and not masses, form the culture of the race.
-SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL


Just to have Something To Do and a Reason to Do It exerts a control over life itself. If you have no purpose, you have no purchase on the small first particle necessary to make the whole understandable. Thus life can become a terrible burden.
-THE PROBLEMS OF WORK


Man is not a reactive* animal. He is capable of self-determinism. He has will power. He ordinarily has high analytical ability. He is rational and he is happy and integrated only when he is his own basic personality.
—DIANETICS: THE ORIGINAL THESIS


I discovered that the common denom¬inator of existence was Survive. What-ever else man was trying to do, wheth¬er he was cultured or primitive, he was attempting to survive.
—'A Filmed Interview with L. Ron Hubbard," THE AUDITOR 23

*Reactive: Irrational, reacting instead of acting .. .
—SCIENTOLOGY ABRIDGED DICTIONARY


The goal of Scientology is the making of the individual capable of living a better life in his own estimation and with his fellows and the playing of a better game.
-THE FUNDAMENTALS OF THOUGHT


... all the happiness you ever find lies in you.
-SCIENTOLOGY: A NEW SLANT ON LIFE


The first step of handling anything is gaining an ability to face it.
-SCIENTOLOGY: A NEW SLANT ON LIFE


Man thrives oddly enough only in the presence of a challenging environ¬ment.
—SCIENTOLOGY BASIC STAFF HAT BOOK

A primary trap is to succumb to invitations to hate.
—"What is Greatness?" WHAT ARE PEOPLE FOR?


There could be no purpose worth contemplating which does not include happiness and experience. When a man is no longer able to envision happiness as a part of his future, that man is dead.
—DIANETICS '55


Life in its highest state is understand¬ing.
—DIANETICS '55



Happiness is the overcoming of not unknown obstacles toward a known goal and, transiently, the contempla¬tion of or indulgence in pleasure.
—DIANETICS: THE MODERN SCIENCE OF MENTAL HEALTH


UNDERSTANDING IS COMPOSED OF AFFINITY, REALITY AND COMMUNICATION.
—Axiom 21, AXIOMS AND LOGICS


Affinity, that is some emotional or felt consideration of proximity, is basically a consideration of distance, but it is that consideration which says that one likes or doesn't like it. In other words, without some liking or disliking, having some things to avoid or to go close to, there would be no game at all.
-CONTROL AND THE MECHANICS OF S.C.S.




Communication, is an interchange of ideas between two beings who are aware that the other person is present.
CONTROL AND THE MECHANICS OF S.C.S.


Reality is fundamentally agreement. What we agree to be real is real.
THE FUNDAMENTALS OF THOUGHT


It is very difficult to suppress the affinity of an individual, his capacity, that is, to receive or give love, without also suppressing his communication and reality factors.
-SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL


If you raise somebody's affinity you will raise his reality and communica¬tion. If you raise somebody's reality, you'll raise his affinity and communi¬cation. And the keynote of this trian¬gle happens to be communication. Communication is more important than either affinity or reality.
-THE PHOENIX LECTURES




If man cannot face what he is, then man cannot be free.
–DIANETICS '55

Be true to your own goals.
- The Code of Honor, THE CREATION OF HUMAN ABILITY


Never disparage yourself or minimize your strength or power.
–The Code of Honor,
THE CREATION OF HUMAN ABILITY


There is GOOD control and BAD control. The difference between them is Certainty and Uncertainty. Good control is certain, positive, predict-able. Bad control is uncertain, variable and unpredictable.
–THE PROBLEMS OF WORK


"Freedom from" is all right, only so long as there is a place to be free to. An endless desire for freedom from is a perfect trap, a fear of all things.
-SCIENTOLOGY: A NEW SLANT ON LIFE


The avoidance of reality is merely an avoidance of present time.
-SCIENTOLOGY: A NEW SLANT ON LIFE


When we say that somebody should be in present time we mean he should be in communication with his environ¬ment. We mean, further, that he should be in communication with his environment as it exists, not as it existed.
-DIANETICS '55


TWO RULES FOR HAPPY LIVING
1. Be able to experience anything.
2. Cause only those things which others can experience easily.
-SCIENTOLOGY: A NEW SLANT ON LIFE




There is no need to lead a violent life just to prove one can experience. The idea is not to prove one can experi¬ence, but to regain the ability to experience.
-SCIENTOLOGY: A NEW SLANT ON LIFE

Life is a game. A game consists of freedom, barriers and purposes.
—SCIENTOLOGY: A NEW SLANT ON LIFE


True greatness merely refuses to change in the face of bad actions against one—and a truly great person loves his fellows because he under-stands them.
"What is Greatness?" WHAT ARE PEOPLE FOR?



Freedom for man does not mean freedom to injure man. Freedom of speech does not mean freedom to harm by lies.
—SCIENTOLOGY: A NEW SLANT ON LIFE




Some people have to talk. With this compulsion they are out of communi-cation. Communication is a two-way affair.
—NOTES ON THE LECTURES OF L. RON HUBBARD

We have found that the more we increase the ability of a person the better the by-products around him become.
—DIANETICS '55

There is no solution at any time superior to the ability of the person asking for it to understand.
—"Gradients & Understanding," THE AUDITOR 24


Man, in affinity with Man, survives, and that survival is pleasure.
—DIANETICS: THE MODERN SCIENCE OF MENTAL HEALTH


To be happy, one must be able to confront, which is to say, experience, those things that are.
—SCIENTOLOGY: A NEW SLANT ON LIFE



Probably the most neglected friend you have is you.
—SELF ANALYSIS


...the reason for existence is the same reason as one has to play a game—interest, contest, activity and possession.
—THE FUNDAMENTALS OF THOUGHT

Do not give or receive communication unless you yourself desire it.
—The Code of Honor, THE CREATION OF HUMAN ABILITY

That Man is selfish is a valid statement when one means an aberrated Man. That Man is anti-social is an equally valid statement if one adds the modi¬fier, aberration.

Any information is valuable to the degree that you can use it.
—THE FUNDAMENTALS OF THOUGHT

A body of knowledge cannot have an opinion on something.

Judge men from what they think of help . . . The good can help. The bad will not. Or if they do, they "help" only to betray.

The individual is not his analytical mind,* he is not his reactive mind,** he is not his body any more than he is his house or his car.
DIANETICS '55


*ANALYTICAL MIND: That part of a person's thinking machinery and memories over which he has relatively full control.

**REACTIVE MIND: That portion of a person's mind which is not under his volitional command or recall, and which exerts the power of command over his thinking and actions.

—THE PROBLEMS OF WORK

A sane man has difficulty in insane surroundings.
—THE PROBLEMS OF WORK


*THETAN: From Theta, the Static. Word Taken from Greek letter O, theta, traditional symbol for thought or spirit. The thetan is the individual himself—not body, mind or anything else; that which is aware of being aware; the identity that IS the individual.
—THE PHOENIX LECTURES


The road to sanity is demonstrably the road to increasing certainty.
-THE CREATION OF HUMAN ABILITY

When an individual is acting contrary to survival of himself, his group, prog-eny, race, mankind, or life he can be considered to be unintelligent, unin¬formed or aberrated.
-DIANETICS: THE ORIGINAL THESIS

To obtain a certainty, one must be able to observe.
-SCIENTOLOGY: A NEW SLANT ON LIFE

The highest activity is playing a game. When one is high-toned, he knows that it is a game. As he falls away down the tone scale,* he becomes less and less aware of the game.
—SCIENTOLOGY: A NEW SLANT ON LIFE


... the secret of doing a good job is the secret of control itself. One not only continues to create a job, day by day, week by week, month by month, he also continues the job by permit¬ting it to progress and he is also capable of stopping or ending any cycle of work and letting it remain finished.
—THE PROBLEMS OF WORK


*TONE SCALE: A scale measuring and relating the various factors of behavior, emotion and thought to levels on the scale.

Knowledge is certainty; knowledge is not data.

The anatomy of control is start, change and stop.

The person who studiously avoids work usually works far longer and far harder than the man who pleasantly confronts it and does it. Men who cannot work are not happy men.

People at low levels of awareness do not observe, but substitute for obser-vation preconceptions, evaluation and suppositions, and even physical pain by which to attain their certainties.

One of the great truths of Scientology is that increased awareness is the only factor which offers any road out. That is an awfully simple truth, but you'll find out that people don't know that. They think that less awareness is the road out—and that is the road down into the basement.

So eager is a thetan to have a game that he will adopt to himself all manner of liabilities in order to have a parity with his opponents. One cannot have a game with people who are too inferior in strength or cleverness. Thus one reduces his own strength and cleverness in order to have a game.

If we take a man and keep giving him advice and giving him help and push¬ing him along, we don't necessarily wind up with a resolution of his problems. But if, on the other hand, we put him into a condition where he can confront life better, where his reaction time is better, where he can identify the factors in his life more easily, then he's in a position where he can solve his own problems. And so he looks around, starts solving his own problems and so betters his own life.

The optimum solution for any prob¬lem would be a solution which achieved the maximum benefit in all the dynamics.*
—DIANETICS: THE MODERN SCIENCE OF MENTAL HEALTH

*DYNAMIC: The impulse to survive is found to contain eight sub-impulses. These are, first, the urge to survive as self; second, the urge to survive through sex in the procreation of children; third, the impulse to survive as a group; fourth, the impulse to survive as mankind itself; fifth, the urge to survive as animal life; sixth, the impulse to survive as the material universe of matter, energy, space and time; seventh, the impulse to survive as a spirit; and eighth, the impulse to survive as what may be called the Supreme Being.
The above sub-impulses are called dynamics; com¬bined, they form the overall urge towards survival, but each one of itself plays its important role, both in the individual and in the wider sphere named as a part of each impulse. Thus we see the inter-dependency of the individual with the family, with the group, with the species, with life forms, with the material universe itself, with spirits, and with God; and we see the dependency of each one of these entities upon the individual as a part of it.

If you reward non-production you get it.
It is not humanitarian to let a whole population go to pieces just because a few refuse to work. And some people just won't. And when work no longer has reward, none will.

So specialize in production and every-body wins. Reward it.

The principle of the contagion of aberration is broad in scope. One can observe in any group of men that one or two may be much more aberrated than the others.

Most people confuse a "taut ship" with a harshly led ship. Actually harshness has nothing to do with it. The right word is positiveness.

If every time he [a person] selects out an enemy and then communicates to the enemy and simply becomes the enemy at that point, he couldn't have an enemy very long, could he?
-THE PHOENIX LECTURES


... if you get somebody to simply look around the environment, he will cease to be a problem and will become the solver of problems. That's all. Just looking.
-THE PHOENIX LECTURES


A thetan is interested, and an object is interesting. A thetan is not interesting. He is interested. And when a person becomes terribly interesting he has lots of problems, believe me. That is the chasm which is crossed by all of your celebrities, anybody who is fool¬ish enough to become famous. He crosses over from being interested in life to being interesting, and people who are interesting are really no long¬er interested in life. It's very baffling to some young fellow why he can't make some beautiful girl interested in him. Well, she is not interested, she is interesting.
-THE PHOENIX LECTURES


The game of life demands that one assume a beingness in order to ac¬complish a doingness in the direction of havingness.

You face force with reason and con¬tinue to apply reason. A human being goes into apathy when stopped from doing this.
-NOTES FROM THE LECTURES OF L. RON HUBBARD


The number one trick of control used in this universe on a thetan is to make the thetan postulate* that he himself can be damaged.

The basic purpose of reason is the calculation or estimation of effort.

—SCIENTOLOGY ABRIDGED DICTIONARY

The passage from interested to in¬teresting has many phases. When one is no longer interested, but is only interesting, he has lost his principle quality as a thetan—freedom, and the ability to change at will.

It could be said that all the entrap¬ment there is is the waiting one does for an answer.
-DIANETICS '55


When we grow timid in the face of circumstances it is because our Pur¬pose, our Stable Data, have been invalidated.
-THE PROBLEMS OF WORK



If you observe that somebody has failed often, then what do you mean by failed? He has decided to move something in space and then hasn't. In this universe, that's the total anatomy of failure.
-THE PHOENIX LECTURES


There is something else about Free¬dom which is intensely interesting—it cannot be erased.
You may be able to concentrate some-body's attention on something that is not free and thus bring him into a state of belief that Freedom does not exist, but this does not mean that you have erased the individual's freedom. You have not. All the freedom he ever had is still there.

People are the victims of their own flinch. They are the victims of their own postulates,* the victims of their own belief that they are inadequate.
—SCIENTOLOGY: A NEW SLANT ON LIFE


Rightness is conceived to be survival. Any action which assists survival along the maximal number of dynamics is considered to be a right action. Any action which is destructive along the maximal number of dynamics is con¬sidered to be wrong. Theoretically, how right can one be? Immortal! How wrong can one be? Dead!
—SCIENTOLOGY 8-8008

... when you begin to handle man on the basis that he is a spirit, that he has unlimited ability, that he is not neces¬sarily pinned down into such things as, "Everybody has just so much I.Q. and they never increase their I.Q.," we win.

—Axiom 40, AXIOMS AND LOGICS


Man is basically good, yes. His experi¬ence has led him into evil and he very often solves his problems from his own point of view only. And when he solves his problems from his own point of view, of course, he gets other points of view into trouble: what is good for a duck hunter is not good for the duck.

We have long said that that which is not admired tends to persist. If no one admires a person for being right, then that person's "brand of being right" ( will persist, no matter how mad it sounds.

In the opinion of the viewpoint, any beingness, any thing, is better than no thing, any effect is better than no effect, any universe better than no universe, any particle better than no particle, but the particle of admiration is best of all.

. -
The ability to assume or to grant beingness is probably the highest of human virtues.
—SCIENTOLOGY: A NEW SLANT ON LIFE


It is even more important to be able to permit (allow) other people to have beingness than to be able, oneself, to assume it.
—SCIENTOLOGY: A NEW SLANT ON LIFE


The scraggly militia usually go down before the regulars in any campaign. The regular is not even better, man for man, than the militia. The regulars know how to operate as a team. They have confidence in one another. And even when numerically inferior they bring off victory over a rabble by co-operation and discipline amongst themselves.

A GROUP IS A PROPER SIZE WHEN THE INDIVIDUALS IN IT CAN EASILY APPROACH THE MANAGER OF THAT GROUP ON A FAMILIAR FRIENDLY BASIS AND BE SURE HE KNOWS WHAT THEY'RE DOING AND WHY AND IF THEY'RE DOING IT.
The individual in that group is not oppressed. His charm counts. He feels op to arguing with that manager. The executive (with a deputy on his side) feels up to confronting the rest of the group. His own personality counts.

-DIANETICS: THE EVOLUTION OF A SCIENCE


Because the analytical mind and the reactive mind in men can become confused, one with the other, one is most prone to assume the actual perception point of that person who has most evaluated for him. Father and Mother, for instance have evalu¬ated about art, habits, goodness, be¬havior, badness, how one should dress, what manners are, to such a degree that the child has no choice, it seems to him, but to assume their "points to look from," and so we will find the child observing things as his father or mother would observe them and even wearing his father's glasses or his mother's glasses as he grows older. He has confused evaluation with actual perception.

GLOSSARY


AFFINITY: Degree of liking or affection or lack of it. (This is often expressed as an emotion—enthusiasm towards a person betokens more affinity than apa-thy.)
—SCIENTOLOGY ABRIDGED DICTIONARY

ANALYTICAL MIND: That part of a person's think¬ing machinery and memories over which he has relatively full control.
—THE CREATION OF HUMAN ABILITY

DIANETICS: That branch of Scientology that covers Mental Anatomy.
—SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL

DYNAMIC: That urge, thrust and purpose of life—SURVIVE!—in its eight manifestations.
THE FIRST DYNAMIC is the urge toward survival of self.
THE SECOND DYNAMIC is the urge toward survival through sex, or children. This dynamic actually has two divisions. Second Dynamic (a) is the sexual act itself and Second Dynamic (b) is the family unit, including the rearing of children.
THE THIRD DYNAMIC is the urge toward surviv¬al through a group of individuals or as a group. Any group or part of an entire class could be considered to be a part of the Third Dynamic. The school, the club, the team, the town, the nation are examples of groups.
THE FOURTH DYNAMIC is the urge toward survival through all mankind and as all mankind.
THE FIFTH DYNAMIC is the urge toward survival through life forms such as animals, birds, insects, fish and vegetation, and is the urge to survive as these.
THE SIXTH DYNAMIC is the urge toward survival as the physical universe and has as its components Matter, Energy, Space and Time, from which we derive the word MEST.
THE SEVENTH DYNAMIC is the urge toward survival through spirits or as a spirit. Anything spiritual, with or without identity, would come under the Seventh Dynamic. A sub-heading of this Dynamic is ideas and concepts such as beauty, and the desire to survive through these.
THE EIGHTH DYNAMIC is the urge toward survival through a Supreme Being, or more exactly, Infinity .. .
—SCIENTOLOGY ABRIDGED DICTIONARY

OVERT ACT (Overt): Harmful or contra-survival act. Precisely, it is an act of commission or omission that harms the greater number of dynamics. There-fore, a failure to eradicate something or stop someone that would harm broadly would be an overt act. Equally, assistance to something that would harm a greater number of dynamics would also be an overt act.
—SCIENTOLOGY ABRIDGED DICTIONARY


POSTULATE: (noun) A conclusion, decision or res¬olution made by the individual himself on his own self-determinism on data of the past, known or unknown. The postulate is always known. It is made upon the evaluation of data by the individual or on impulse without data. It resolves a problem of the past, decides on problems or observations in the present or sets a pattern for the future.

POSTULATE: (verb) To conclude, decide or resolve a problem or to set a pattern for the future or to nullify a pattern of the past.

There are two branches of the subject of Scientology—a religious philosophy (contained in books) and the applied philosophy, which includes methods which enable the individual to attain a higher state of existence through personal processing. Scientology is now the largest self-betterment orga¬nization in the world with membership in the millions and organizations and centers on every continent.
