Scales are a very important part of Scientology.
Pretty much everything is arranged in some sort of scale or heirarchy. Human emotion, human conditions, processing (auditing), training, organizational structure ... everything.
Probably the most important in Scientology is the Scale of Awareness.
Pretty much everything is put somewhere on this. Tone (emotional level), organizational structure (different departments are supposed to reflect different awareness characteristics), the training and auditing bridge.
This is the chart which ties it all together.
There is a post somewhere on this board which lists them and I can find it right now. Can someone post a link to the list on this board?
So, everything in Scientology can (theoretically) be understood better if one understands what scientology means by these different levels. Some are self explanatory. Many could use definition as to what scn defines them as.
Would someone else like to explain the different awareness characteristics or do people want me to do it?
Every scale is basically Be, Do and Have. The cycle of action broken down into tiny steps and viewed from different viewpoints. Be, Do and Have is basic to the universe - that is to say it is the ability to postulate and perceive with Time and Space added to it.
Grasp that fully and all else will fall into place.
