Most of you might remember your early days in Scientology with the discovery of the magic ARC triangle and its applications practiced with the so-called TRs, training routines. You experienced how through improved communication the other two components of Affinity and Reality likewise increased.
Our greatest tool to avoid and to heal conflicts is communication. Communication is the universal solvent and that is why LRH placed it on top of the ARC triangle. Communication allows for sharing realities and communication allows for creating affinities. ARC is life and the triangle forms the field of understanding. It is at this remarkable point where the Church of Scientology cuts in with its policy of disconnection, it is at this point where families and friends are being torn apart and where enemies are being created. When Hubbard calls Scientology a game where everybody wins, this becomes a game where people are loosing.
How odd! How can an organization that preaches theta, theta as being composed of ARC, practice the creation of entheta by eliminating C and thus reducing A and R?
This is a simple demonstration of how the application of basic knowledge can be inverted to cause negativity when its correct use allows for positive effects.
We have learnt that anything in life can be considered as ranking on scales and one of the most remarkable scale is the tone scale. The lowest point communication could reach would be zero with no communication at all flowing. This would be the state of deadness, a state almost unimaginable and beyond the state of the physical universe. It is a point where we easily recognize that absolutes are unobtainable. Above zero we will find a band of solid communications that reach from an absolute randomness to more and more targeted hostile and antagonistic levels. This is where conflicts and war harbor. Further up, communication becomes fuller of life and more and more survival. At its highest levels it reaches into spirituality and esthetics. Here we find the arts, peace, freedom and pleasure. While we detect lies and false data at the lower areas, the higher ones reflect benevolence and truths. Aren’t these the plateaus that we have been searching to achieve by becoming Scientologists?
It is one thing that an organization demands any misuse of its own tenets, it is another that a great majority of members follows such decree. It makes me wonder how much a Scientologist has actually learnt if they agree to applying basic Scientology tools incorrectly, if they cut communication to their loved ones and best friends. Do they really believe that such misuse of basic knowledge supports better survival? I wonder how it actually can.
Imagine what would happen if every Scientologist would simply apply what they learnt in one of their very first encounters with Scientology! Imagine what would happen if the doctrine of the ARC triangle would be applied! Imagine what would happen if we experienced how this triangle represents life, how its three corners expand when one of them is being improved and how communication can be used to handle any and every conflict!
The present leader of the church of Scientology would be ousted and Scientology as a religion would experience the long hoped for renaissance! Imagine how much hostility will be buried and how much energy would be funneled towards our common goal of improving conditions on our planet!
