Have you ever met someone who seemed to be always angry about something? You greet him with a friendly, Good morning. His response is an angry, Whats good about it?
Or someone whose outlook and response to life is a chronic apathy, no matter what is happening around him? The person seems to be in good health, has a loving family and an enviable job, but nothing makes any difference. The person just isnt interested.
Until the discoveries of Scientology philosophy, human emotions were things we all suffered and enjoyed, but never really understood.
One of the great contributions of Scientology was the discovery that emotions can be plotted on a scale in an exact ascending, or descending, sequence. This sequence was discovered through observations of many, many people in Scientology counselling. Numerical values indicate the relative positions of emotions on the Tone Scale.
