WHY, 1. the why will be how come the situation is such a departure from the ideal scene and will open the door to handling. (HCO PL 12 Aug 74) 2. any undesirable or desirable situation must have a real why. The why must permit a closer approach to the ideal scene. The why must always improve the existing scene toward a more ideal scene. (CBO 147) 3. it’s always some huge enormous piece of stupidity, an out-point-any one of the various out-points. And it explains all other out-points as a common denominator. Once you find that one all the other ones are dependent on it.
It’s like finding basic on the chain. The chain goes. (ESTO 12, 7203CO6 SO II) 4. the basic why is always the major out-point which has all other out-points as a common denominator and that’s the real why, that explains everything. What is this everything? All the other out-points! What is
this major out-point that explains all other out-points that I have found in this area? That could be the definition of a why. (ESTO 12, 7203CO6 SO II) 5. the real reason found by the investigation. (HCO PL 29 Feb 72 II) 6. we find what caused the situation which we call a why. (FEBC 2, 7101C18 SO I) 7. that basic outness found which will lead to a recovery of stats. (HCO PL 13 Oct 70 II)
WHY IS GOD, THE, when beings operate mainly on illogics, they are unable to conceive of valid reasons for things or to see that effects are directly caused by things they themselves can control. The inability to observe and find an actual usable why is the downfall of beings and activities. This is factually the why of people not finding whys and using them. The prevalence of historical man’s use of “fate,” “kismet (fatalism),” superstition,
fortune telling, astrology and mysticism confirms this. Having forgotten to keep seed grain for the spring, the farmer starves the following year and when asked why he is starving says it is the gods, that he has sinned or that he failed to make sacrifice. In short, unable to think he says “the why is God.” (HCO PL 31 Jan 72)
