The word "axiom" has several definitions. The most common is a proposition that is self-evident and therefore assumed to be true. However that is not the one used here. The definition of "axiom" in "Scientology Axioms" is "an established rule, principle, or law" or "a statement of natural law on the order of those of the physical sciences."
The Scientology Axioms are the basic truths of life and form the foundation upon which Dianetics and Scientology were built. In the next few weeks I will be examining these axioms in an attempt to communicate the fundamentals of Scientology.
