One day the thetan is hanging out in Native State, just fine
thank you, and suddenly he says "Whoa, what's that green pyramid doing

      You see that's a postulate: "There is a green pyramid".

      Now if that's all he did was say "There's a green pyramid", it
probably wouldn't last too long because that's an as-isness.  Pretty
soon his attention wanders over to that purple sphere over there, and
the green pyramid is *GONE*, nothing left of it at all, not even a

      Everything is new and all that is, in native state.

      In order to keep the pyramid around, the being has to commit to
the postulate.  He first says "There is a green pyramid", and then he
says "Now what do I DO about it?"

      Doing is added creation, the idea that one has to do something
about it in the first place is added significance, and so the
postulate has become a problem: he has to do something about it.

      So he sets off to build a temple around the pyramid.  Well the
temple is just more postulates, but it sure is a COMMITMENT to the
original postulate that the pyramid is there, so you see how that is
going to make the green pyramid really solid and hard to as-is?

      Of course the temple, being just more postulate, will soon as-is
itself, unless he continues with "Well now I have a temple, what am I
going to DO about that!"

      And so he builds a city around the temple, which is a huge
commitment to the temple, which itself was a commitment to the

      You see the thetan has a problem here, if he just sits back and
says "Well now I have a city and that's that!" the city will soon
dissolve on him, as-is, leaving the temple all alone again.

      If he says "Well that's ok!" the temple will also dissolve
leaving him with the green pyramid all alone again.

      And if he says "That's OK!" too, the pyramid will be gone shortly
leaving the thetan back at the big OK in the sky called native state.

      So in order to keep anything around, the being has to commit 
something to it, "That's NOT OK!", and then he has to DO something about 

      And in order to keep THAT around, he has to commit more to that
too, ad infinitum.  This produces time and the quest for survival by

      The first thing a being does to commit to any postulate is consider 
"That's NOT OK!" and ASK A QUESTION ABOUT IT, perhaps like "What should I 
DO about it?"

      Or he asks "What is that?  Where did it come from?  Who made it?
What should I do about it?  :)"

      Each one of these questions is begging for an answer, and any
effort, emotion, thought, matter, energy space or time that the being
commits to asking or answering these questions is just so much temple
and city built around the original postulate.

      Now Hubbard taught us to assign proper responsibility for any
creation in order to vanish it.

      So the being asks "Who created that!" and answers it with "I did!"
or "Joe did!"

      But you see these are ANSWERS.  They don't get rid of the question,
they fix the question in space and time along with the answer.  That's
not an as-isness, that's a persistence.

      It's right there on the wall of the temple, "Who created this
pyramid?" - "Joe did!"

      So now you have both pyramid, temple AND question and answer


      It's sort of like this,

      Pyramid -> Temple -> City Postulate -> Question -> Answer

      The answer keeps it all going!

      Then you can have wrong answers, so people can THEN DO something
about the wrong answers like get into wars and such, that will really
keep things going.

      But as long as you have ANY answer, right or wrong, and anyone
cares about it, and nurtures it, and teaches it, and keeps it going etc,
then the whole chain will remain in existence.

      So if the being wants to as-is the pyramid, what does he have to

      First he has to start spotting the answers and questions and stop
answering them, until the QUESTIONS VANISH.  An answered question is not
a vanished question, but a quiescent persisting question answer pair.

      You know, edercation.

      The being has to cease committing to answering the question before
the question will as-is.  It has to be OK to not know.

      Once he can get back to no questions about the pyramid, not even a 
memory of them (the questions or answers), just completely all gone as if 
they were never there, then once he has as-ised all his later commitments 
to the pyramid, and the pyramid will start to vanish on its own too.

      Questions are formed during moments of impingement.  Heavy
impingement or impact is an engram.

      Impingement means, there is nothing there -> there is something

      Questions about something being there, continue the postulate
that something is there.  We call that precommitting to the postulate.
"Why is it there" precommits to "It is there."  See?

      An as-isness of something there starts with the total cessation of 
questions and answers about the something being there and all the other 
significance and sought significance added onto it later to deal with it 
being there.
