Individuals & 3rd Dynamics
As hunting packs changed their ways and became agricultural groups,
they changed very slowly. The origin of the change was - lack of food
- as the number of human beings on the planet increased. It has been
calculated that our planet can only support between 50 and 200 million
people living as hunting packs and fisherman, as long as agriculture
was not used to improve conditions. A rough estimate of how many human
beings could survive by employing simple agricultural technology tells
us that the not so primitive agriculture of the old Egyptian empire
alone in the valleys around the Nile could support up to 200 million
people. This old highly civilised society used irigation to multiply
their harvests and they had solved the basic problem of the early
agricultural men by using the vast amounts of mud from the Nile to
each year give the soil back the nutrition it lost the year before.
When the first hunting packs started to use agricultural methods to
enhance their survival they soon learned that the soil became less
fertile each year they planted crops to harvest. And so they continued
to move on from one area to another. It was only when they learned to
use ferti lisers (like dung from domestic animals or even more
successfully irrigation from rivers whose waters brought lots of mud
and fertilisers of all kinds, like the Nile, Indus, Yangtze - Kiang,
Huang - Hoe, Eufrat/Tigres etc.) that these early farmers could stay
in the same area year after year and create real civilisations.
As human beings on the planet solved the problem of - lack of food -
for hunting packs, by successfully changing into agricultural groups,
that developed agriculture into more and more advanced technology,
they laid the foundation for the first empire.
In the hunting pack (which usually only had between a few dozen and up
to one or two hundred members at the most) each member of the pack
knew every other member of the group. They also had some knowledge of
who the members of neighbouring hunting packs were. Thus there was
little room for dictatorships to arise. The individual members of the
hunting pack depended very much on each other. Even the chief of the
hunting pack was forced to treat the individual members of the pack
with some respect and friendliness, if the hunting pack group did not
live in harmony with one another the group succumbed.
As more advanced forms of agriculture increased the number of
individuals that could stay together in one large group, civilisation
developed. Especially in the fertile areas around the big rivers,
where millions of human beings all were organized into one
civilisation, we got very different conditions for life among human
beings, compared to the hunting packs and early agricultural groups,
that had to move on to new areas as the land became less fertile when
no fertilisers were used.
For the first time in the history of mankind we encountered the
problem of growing bureaucracies. One of the main principle of
bureaucracy is that "you scratch my back if I scratch yours". Another
principle of a bureaucracy is that the individual who is the most
ruthless gets ahead of the more decent ones, because he does not
hesitate to use all available means to get ahead of others. The
ruthless individuals tend to rise to the top of a bureaucratic
organisation as long as there is a lack of free communication
preventing him from being revealed for what he is.
If these were the only factors determing the fate of civilisation we
would long since have all succumbed in the attempt. However there are
other factors at work in the process of first empire civilisations.
There is the principles behind - Control and Lying - (See - IVy -
article in IVy no 4).
Once a dictator has risen to the top of a 1st empire society he
depends for his success on having able people around him and under
him. Thus he has to enhance their knowledge and give them some kind of
responsibility (KRC) if his society shall have any chance of survival.
Also dictators do not survive forever. Once they die they have to have
successors and very often the successor is not able to control the
society with the same ruthlessness as the original dictator.
Just as hunting packs in conflicts with neighbouring hunting packs
could be wiped out, if they were not able to fight back, so the
agricultural societies could be taken over by neighbouring
agricultural societies (or large hunting packs of several hunting
packs banded together in a large organisation), if they were well
enough organised to defend themselves. Early on agricultural societies
very often were robbed by forces of several hunting packs that had
teamed up to solve their own "lack of food" problems by robbing food
from farmers of agricultural societies.
However as time went by and the number of people in the farming
societies multiplied and as farming societies developed an abundance
of food, that made it possible for such societies to keep armies of
soldiers around, that could fight back when hunting packs tried to rob
them, we had the agricultural societies slowly take over the control
of most of the land on our planet.
Djenghis Khan probably was the last successful organiser of hunting
packs that really threatened the 1st Empires of our world. The only
reason he could do that was because his tribes had managed to develop
a new weapon that the 1st Empire civilizations of those days could not
defend themselves against - the horse back soldier. (see article by
LRH in the book - All About Radiation - , 2nd. lecture, particularly
"Unlimited Weapons" and "The Assassins".)
The cavalry of Djenghis Khan had taken advantage of a great invention
- the saddle - and that invention created an army that was invincible
when confronted with the methods of war fare of those days. And so
Djenghis Khan erected the greatest empire the world had seen so far.
However the 1st Empire civilization did not die when Djenghis Khan
conquered the populations of the then civilized world in Asia and
parts of Europe. In the final analysis the 1st Empire civilization
conquered the Khan dynasty into it's own realms and already Kublai
Khan was a new leader of a 1st Empire civilization in Asia.
Change of mentality
When the 3rd Dynamic of man changed from hunting pack groups of no
more than a few hundred people into agricultural societies of several
million human beings the human mind changed with these changing
In the hunting pack it was quite easy to get every individual to
follow the laws and moral codes of the group. It was not possible to
keep any secrets from the rest of the group. There existed no
individualism as we know it. Each member of the group served the group
and received back from the group the means to survive.
As agriculture developed into farming (where the farmer remained in
the same area and did not have to move around as fertilizers were
being properly used) populations in the 3rd dynamics increased and
individual groups started to develop inside the societies. These
individual groups inside the society had their own morals and law
systems. Such groups had their own "tribe - morals" independant of the
society around them. It could be said such groups are the remains of
the hunting pack tribes that were never properly converted into 1st
Empire citizens. Such groups with their own codes of conduct and their
own moral codes and law systems are real threats to civilization.
At the same time these groups within the 4th dynamic created the two -
valued logic in the human mind that was the purpose of the 1st Empire
civilization. The members of these 1st Empire civilizations had to
learn to tell right from wrong. There was the "black and white"
thinking of the civilization and of the smaller groups. Those who
belonged to more than one group with moral codes had to learn to think
in terms of right/wrong both for the smaller group and for the greater
society. Thus two - valued logic became necessary for the human beings
in the 1st Empire civilizations. To only believe in the one and only
God was no longer enough. Now each member of this greater society had
to obey both the god that created his civilization and the various
smaller Gods that were behind different smaller groups he might belong
Too steep a gradient
Each time a civilization allows groups of individuals from hunting
pack tribes or other nomad groups (or one - way logic 3rd Dynamics
with "tribe morals") to enter civilization without having to go
through the civilizing influence of a 1st Empire civilization, you get
"criminal groups" inside the civilization. (A "criminal group is here
defined as a 3rd Dynamic that is "out-exchange" i.e. takes more from
the 4th Dynamic than it flows towards building it up).
Such criminal groups regard themselves to still be in a "Garden of
Eden", that their God has given them to walk around in and eat all the
fruits they find around. Their God has given them the right to take
everything they encounter in this garden, as long as they do not break
the laws of their God (their tribe morals).
The tribe - man with his tribe moral has one - way logic govering his
mind. For him it is allowed to do all the things he is not killed for.
His God punishes him only if he breaks the laws of God. And the way
his God speaks to him is through the language of actions. If he is
hurt his Gods have punished him. If he cannot move outside of a prison
his God has punished him. If he dies that is the punishment from his
No long explanations from somebody outside of his own tribe (the
people belonging to his God) means anything to this type of mind. It
cannot be reached by logics of live communication, because it is not
above 2 on the tone - scale (on the 3D).
In the 1st Empire civilization the mind of man is changed from a mind
that is only working within a small 3rd Dynamic into a mind that
responds to some degree to a greater 3rd Dynamic. The 1st Empire
civilization introduces the idea of a 4th Dynamic into the mind of
man. But a 1st Empire civilization human mind is still only a black
and white logic mind. There is only one side that is good and that is
the side his own 1st Empire civilization belongs to (or the smaller
sub - group).
The way the human mind is developed through a 1st Empire civilization
into a mind that operates on a greater 3rd Dynamic is through work or
hard labour (the CCH triangle). When tribe - moral people are being
controlled to perform certain activities that make them create a
greater civilization, their anchor points are moved out into lower 3rd
Dynamics. Thus they grow as beings. they start to put a value on being
members of a greater civilization. Their logic develops into not only
obeying their 3D God, but also assisting their civilization (other
human beings they do not personally know) and various groups within
their great 1st Empire civilization.
For most of the degraded thetans on this planet it will take several
life - times of hard labour (maybe slavery) to go through this change
of mind. For others it may take less than one life time. In any case
it is a necessary step to go through for the thetans that are trapped
on this planet to advance into beings beyond "Genetic Entity beings".
Two - value logic is not enough to understand life. But it is a
starting point. From there a being can develop into more advanced
logics. He can through study be trained to think logically in more and
more areas. But first he has to learn to communicate (ARC - triangle)
and that is what the 2nd Empire is all about.
The CCH triangle (communication, control, havingness) handles the
reactive mind. (There is an enourmous wealth of data with regard to
CCH and ARC, the CCH processes, and CCH and livingness in the 17th ACC
lectures series, and this has relevance to the 1st.Empire idea. Ed.)
The end phenomenon of the CCH triangle is 2.0. When a being has
reached 2.0 through CCH triangle handling you are supposed to deliver
the ARC (affinity, reality, communication) triangle as a reward.That
is where live communication is supposed to enter.
