Description: Hubbard says that the primary purpose of life is to overcome the environment. Little theta (microcosm) v. Big theta (God or macrocosm.)
The primary purpose of life is to overcome an environment. It is the attack of little theta on big theta, the attack of thought merging with matter and becoming life, attacking the environment. And when life has had set up to it an enormous obstacle, life will attack; and if that obstacle is extremely big and it carries physical pain with it, the attacks will become more and more savage and irrational.1
