Scientologists, Lies, and the ARC Triangle

A bedrock of L. Ron Hubbard philosophy is the ARC Triangle. "A" = Affinity. "R" = Reality. "C" = Communication. He wrote that together these three equal "U", Understanding. Anything that effects one point of this triangle, effects the others. For instance, the more one communicates with a person or subject, the greater his Affinity, Reality, and Understanding with them. Raising one corner of the triangle to a higher state, raises the other two—and vice versa. That which lowers one corner of the triangle, lowers the other two.
