Hubbard teaches pan-determinism in Dianetics 55!, using the second dynamic as an example.
Pan-determinism would be the willingness to determine or control self and dynamics other than self. [...]
Let us take for our example of pan-determinism the second dynamic. Here we find such a thorough effort to have other-determinism that Freud picked this out as the only aberrative factor. It is not the only aberrative factor, but in view of the fact that it is a desired inflow it can be considered with many other things to have some aberrative value. Let us look at it in terms of self-determinism and pan-determinism. Here we have an individual believing himself to be a man, who believes that his only sexual pleasure can be derived from remaining very solidly a man and having sexual relationships with a woman, and being very sure that he is not the woman. On the other hand, we find a woman determined to be herself and experience as herself, and to experience a sexual inflow from a man. In the case of the man, as in the case of the woman, we have an unwillingness to be the other sex. This is considered natural but do you know that when this is entirely true, when we have complete determinism to be self and not to be to any slightest degree the other person, there is no sexual pleasure interchange of any kind whatsoever? We get the condition known as satyrism and nymphomania. We get a tremendous anxiety to have a sexual flow.
