- 2.0 on Hubbard’s emotional tone scale is the designation for antagonism. Antagonism, according to Hubbard is the point on the scale that divides the positve emotions from the negative emotions. It is also the doorway to the reactive mind, in that below 2.0 the person is said to be dramatizing emotions that come from past trauma. ↩
