Description: Hubbard describes a process that "cleans up the eighth dynamic." Discusses Christianity as a way to control people.
The origin of time is very easy to trace. The individual had an enormous amount of space around him, then he decided that was in yesterday or it was someplace else or it was in some non-existent spot, any place but here. He was tired of the junk. So he threw it away. And he had a new space then. So he took this new space and he filled it up full of junk and he decided he was tired of that and he threw it away. Now he met a friend who was doing the same thing and they decided they would throw their spaces away in unison, you know, and that would keep them in parity so they could go on playing checkers. One wouldn’t be throwing the checker board into yesterday when the other one was still trying to make a move.
There is a point of the track where this happened quite often. You know, the fellow would come along and he’d insult you so you would say, “Die yesterday,” and he wouldn’t have insulted you. I mean, it’s a very simple mechanism, but it’s very confusing to people and they couldn’t keep track of it. So they decided, “Let’s all get together now and have our spaces thrown away in unison.” And then they set this up as a big co-automaticity. Everybody set up the same automaticity and you had time. Simple. Which is the casting away of spaces and the creation of new spaces to muddy up.
So an individual of course, as he begins to count on the past, why he isn’t making any new spaces for the future and he runs out of space. And you run into him, and you’ll find he’s out of space. It’s fantastic. These are very funny manifestations. They’re not funny to him. He tries to throw a mock-up away from him and it’ll go one inch or something. He hasn’t any space to throw it into. Now you’ll say, “Well let’s make some space,” well it just keeps collapsing on him, that’s all. He can’t have space, he knows that. His acceptance level will not permit him to have space. Everybody’s chased him out of too many spaces, and so forth.
But the point is, he isn’t making new space, so he doesn’t of course have a tomorrow. And he gets anxious then the future. Well he doesn’t have a new space. This is not complicated. You can make it awfully complicated. People have been making it terribly complicated for a long time. And he sort of has an agreement that he has as much beingness as he can create space. So people get the eighth dynamic and space all tied up, and god’s in all the spaces. Curious manifestation that a fellow would make space and then say somebody else owned it. That’s really very curious. It’s much more curious than you have permitted yourself to observe.
I’ll give you an example of that. Just get the idea that; carefully make space all around your body right now, just put out some dimension points, and make space around your body. Make some space anywhere you can make some. Alright, now say somebody else owns this now. Now make some more space, right around you. Now say somebody else inhabits this now. You see, that’s real screwball stuff, isn’t it? See how; did I knock somebody out here? I see a number of yawns. Don’t tell me this is a process that cleans up the eighth dynamic. Oh, we don’t want processes to clean things up like that, we need that eighth dynamic there. We got to keep them cannibals down on the Ivory Coast under control. Yes sir, we need Christianity. We got to control people. So let’s not dis-abuse anybody of this. But you see that it’s kind of silly? Just a little bit silly? Of course there’s — when this becomes obsessive, a person starts to spin in on the eighth dynamic. The only people that could make any space that you’d perceive are you.
