Summary

"A family is simply a group for the purpose of sexual pleasure and the rearing of children and mutual economic advantages amongst ourselves. You know, it’s a small group. Therefore, we have this actual group. The race wouldn’t beanywhere without the family." - L. Ron Hubbard

In his search to understand Man, Ron discovered that there is a single common denominator to existence: Survive! No matter the varied experiences or activities of individuals, everyone is seeking to survive and that is the only common denominator to all life.

Then, examining life still more closely, he further discovered that survival subdivided into eight separate urges or drives, known as the Eight Dynamics. In brief, one seeks to survive for oneself (1), the family and the future generation (2), one’s group (3), Mankind(4), all life organisms (5), the physical universe (6), as or for spirits (7) and the Supreme Being, or infinity (8).

The Second Dynamic has long been a source of mystery and confusion, in no small part because previous studies of Man erroneously targeted sex as the sole reason for existence and, simultaneously, the primary cause of irrationality. Not knowing about the Eight Dynamics, these practitioners led many people to fail - not only in regard to the Second Dynamic, but in life itself. That their theories were not workable is evidenced by today’s incidence of failed personal relationships, broken homes, and troubled youth.

Notwithstanding that it is one dynamic among eight, the Second Dynamic is, of course, important to everyone. It is no minor breakthrough, then, to at last answer the question of how to achieve abundant survival in this crucial part of life. With this knowledge, anyone can discover what the Second Dynamic really is and understand its exact relationship to the rest of their life. And thus, whether as individuals, couples or families, they can finally realize its full potential for happiness.

Very very enlightening...gives you a new view.

Quite fascinating. Never looked art it like that. If the whole society used that the world would be a much saner place.

This lecture on the second dynamic is priceless.

L. Ron Hubbard has boosted me up so much in my life so I did not hesitate to buy this lecture. As I expected he did not disapoint. He has inspired me so much in this lecture. It is exactly what I needed to listen to. I would recommend everyone to listen to this tape. It is definetly worth the money and much more.
