PEOPLE: Cosmology of Species
Why do people say one thing and do another, even without meaning to? Learn the purpose of our basic instincts for survival and social order, and how to unravel the knot between instinct and reason. Learn how instincts affect our decisions and others and how good instincts can be developed through personal habits.
CREATION, NATURAL INSTINCT, AND SOCIAL ORDER
Nature is a free flow symphonic jam session, with no known starting point and no written conclusion, at least that we can predict. Each element plays a part. In this jam session, the rules change. The entire harmonic key structure may be altered and augmented according to the flow of the music being created. Harmonic systems within the process change in order to reinforce the ever evolving theme.
Our species has a clearly defined purpose in nature. It is embodied in our primal instincts. It is the basis of all our perception, and reason. It is observable in all actions and decisions possible within our species.
THE PROCESS OF SPECIES INTERACTION IN CREATION
The more you observe the process the more you will feel at home in the process.
Instinct, Perception, Reason
Our first perception of life, or Creation is of the unknown. It is the last thing we face. All of our actions in life from our first breath to our last is to unravel the unknown. No one can say what decision they made to get here or what, if any, decisions they will make after passing, other than by faith.
The action of unraveling the unknown is guided by two primal instincts, which is to self determine, and establish value. You are doing it now by reading this. Determining what your life will be and what will give it the most value. It is all our species does in nature whether awake or in our dreams. We reason the unknown, through our instinct to perceive what has the most value upon which to act.
Organic Species Perception of Cosmos
The natural world which is the environment of our species, is a process of opposites. We are sperm and egg.
Self Determining, Establishing Value, Active and Passive
In this world, all opposites are the basic identifiable polarities of one process. For instance action has no meaning unless there is also inaction. It cannot exist. In and out, up and down etc. No sperm, or egg, no species. All are opposite ends of a single process.
As we perceive the process of intersecting opposites, we reason their use according to our basic instinct; Determined action, then passive assessment of value, leading again to new action. Our primary instincts and our perception of what is, directs us to evaluate and act on our perception. We determine actions based on what has the most perceived value in each moment and over time. Action = self determination, then rest = establish the value of the action relative to the object of the action. After we establish that value, we determine another action and so on. Our primal instinct like everything in nature is a process of opposites with polar extremes.
Social Order; Anthropological Cosmology of Instinct
The first value that a person establishes in life, is the increase in the ability to live better, when helped by others. We need other people to stay alive at birth and throughout our life, to enhance our life. Therefore our social order is the result of the primal instincts of our species, individual self determination (survival), and establishment of value (living well).
Since life is improved for everyone the more one is able to self determine and establish their value a social order that allows each one in it, to do this, is our first evolutionary threshold for sustainability as a species.
The Golden Rule and our instinct for order
Jesus may be the most revolutionary figure of our times. He defined the Peoples relationship to their perception of a Creator in Creation, by their relationship to one another. By demonstrating the process of Peoples natural place in Creation, he challenged the entire premise of authoritarianism. He identified the laws of species interaction within Creation, as an extension of our interaction with each other. He defined this process as, beneficial, containing infinite possibility, as strict as any authority, but forgiving.
In his teaching of living in an immutable process, or order, was a simple mechanism that a simple person could understand and create as a habit. By practicing this fundamental habit, anyone would immediately be a part of the process and a power, greater than that of any person, or system of authority. The Golden Rule, rules.
Intrinsic Value Is Established individually, by our Perception of the Integrity of the Creative Process, or (what has integrity in creation, ie meaning of life)
Intrinsic value in identifies in the Unique Creations of nature ie gold, and people, ie. the pyramid
What has intrinsic value in life is: That which is most essential to the process of Creation, and, that which most exemplifies the process of Creation. For instance, gold exemplifies the process of creation.
These different intrinsic values are both essential to the process of life and to our species. These two values are an inescapable part of our natural social process. Our primal social conflict stems from these two values. What is real value? Is it the gold, or the thankless day to day over the eons effort of the process of nature needed to produce it? A society that recognizes the purpose of both the root and the flower, and rewards the enhancement of all intrinsic value, sustains that societies intrinsic integrity within the natural process? How do you create a social order where each one can self determine intrinsic value for themselves and prove it’s worth, while protecting that right for each other. This in the face of conflicting values.
SOCIAL ORDER IS THE PROCESS OF SPECIES ORGANISM
When we organize our personal and social habits with respect to our primary instincts, to determine life and establish value, and, understand it as everyone’s prime directive, we eliminate the barriers between individuals through a condition of empathy. This habit is enforced as long as the Golden Rule is in Mind. At that level, we find the common ground to establish each decision and action. Their end of the bargain is as important to the process as yours or you would not both be in the process. Peoples affairs and the affairs of nature are an evolving process of intercommunication and exchange, transacting values at all levels.
Within this sometimes dissonant, sometimes soaring symphonic social process of instinct and reason, rules and systems come and go. Any tonal or harmonic system imposed by a musician or musicians in life’s orchestra, attempting to take over the composition, either loses their place in the music for a time, or is kicked out of natures band. Social order is the process of species organism.
The Golden Rule, is the process of social evolution
Forming a social order that protects each ones ability to self determine and establish value is an essential evolutionary threshold for our species. In order for our species to sustain and optimize in Creation we must be an intrinsic part of that creative process. The Golden Rule is the habit we form as individuals for evolutionary social action, based on establishment of value. Through this habit, you are simultaneously self determining and establishing value with others, based on your own sense of value and direction.
This simultaneous internal and external habit of thought and action, engages your basic instincts fully in each moment you hold that consciousness. Directing one’s life to prove the worth of perceived value, is the primal dynamic of all evolutionary social order. Learning to observe what has value for yourself and others through actions will allow for better decisions and decision predictability in ourselves and often will allow you to know what womeone else will do before they do, according to their perception of the process.
INSTINCT, SOCIAL ORDER, NATURAL LAW
This is the process of natural social order. It begins with defining primal species purpose.
OUR PURPOSE IS TO INDIVIDUALLY, AND SOCIALLY, SELF DETERMINE AND ESTABLISH VALUE IN NATURE
What does that mean in terms of our purpose as a species and for our sustainability?
George Carlin once said, we are all a part of a giant mutation process in nature. For all we know, the problems we produce, are a part of a plan we know nothing of. Primal species have come and gone here on earth, and all have become extinct, which has led to a new rebirth of life and new primal species. We are the latest. So what are we doing here, and are we already living in harmony with nature?
We seem to be unnatural to many. Carlin takes his mutation analogy further, on the subject of plastic. What if, he wonders, all our species exists to do is produce a lot of plastic, that the earth will later turn into something we cannot now imagine, long after we are extinct. We don’t know. We don’t even know how we got here.
We exist to apply all Creation within our perception, and to direct our lives, according to the value we perceive within nature.
From our first breath, till our last, we are determining what is valuable and using it to direct our lives. We are born and we are hungry. We determine to cry for food. We get food. We like one food more than another. Some foods are better for different things and so on. The more we are able to do this the better our quality of life.
But no individual can sustain alone and unaided for long. So creating social order that allows us to do what we are born to do is also a natural instinct. For our species to advance in a natural social order, each one must have the right to do what they were born to do and be obligated to protect that right for the other.
Social order then must begin by protecting our primal need as a species under law, and identifying them as rights.
THE RULES OF NATURAL SOCIAL ORDER
1. SOCIAL ORDER IS OUR NATURAL INSTINCT TO SELF DETERMINE AND ESTABLISH VALUE INDIVIDUALLY IN CREATION
Our species functions as a creative force within creation. Since our personal instinct is to self determine and establish value in life, and since no one individual can do this alone as successfully as in a group, society is created. In an enduring social order, each person has the ability to establish their value and determine their life in that order. The Golden Rule is the framework for each one to do this and protect that right for the other.
2. SOCIAL ORDER BEGINS AT HOME — Home is a Habit
Creating successful habits is a natural instinct. Successful habits carried generation to generation create quality DNA. Our personal habits of order are established where we shelter our physical essentials and aspirations. Home is the foundation of all social order. At home, personal habits can mean the difference between paying the bills or doing without. Or it can mean, getting something that has function and style, or something that doesn’t look as good, but it works.
A natural evolutionary social order then is achievable when successful habits are applied to the general social order. But what works for one home, may not work as well in another. Therefore all successful habits from homes need to be able to tested against others, in an economic, political and quality of life marketplace. No system of laws can regulate or direct our natural instinct to create and develop successful habits, through a system of laws. Laws then that protect the Peoples ability to develop better habits and showcase them in the public square, produce evolutionary social order.
3. THOSE WHO TRY TO CONTROL SOCIAL ORDER, BECOME DISCONNECTED FROM IT
We cannot control creation. We can however protect each one’s participation in it, within a reasonable doubt. Our instinct is to apply and develop results of our successful habits, to the natural social order. As we see the results of the habits for ourselves relative to others over time, the generations will build on what works best and continue to unfold the unknown.
All systems begin and end. But the natural order has been in play since before us. In our realm of perception, we see no beginning. Even the Big Bang is the product of something before it.
Therefore, we are a product of a process without a known beginning or end. A system in this process will remain functional for our species during a moment of usefulness. The sustainability of our species is tied to our ability to create systems within Creation. The process of Creation cannot be controlled by a system within it. Doing so would force conformity in a process of changing mutations. Conformity is death, in a natural order.
No system can control the creative process. Those who persist in systematizing social order in a universe where systems are born to become extinct, increasingly disconnect from the natural social order. Systematizing people’s conduct and legally enforcing values of conformity on society begins corrupting it and eventually collapsing the order.
The natural process and our instinct, is to create infinite variety. This process naturally causes individuals to resist conformity. The need to enforce conformity in order to control social order becomes greater and greater. At some point the People revolt and true to our nature, we begin the natural process of composting and creating from the resulting social dissolution.
4. THOSE WHO EMBRACE SOCIAL ORDER AND OUR INSTINCT, TO CREATE VARIETY WITHIN CREATION EMBRACE THEIR TRUE NATURE
The natural process is a constant upon which an infinite variety of uses are possible. Societies have recorded various amounts of drift in and out of the natural order. The Golden Rule is our habitual access to this process. It is based on our primal need, to determine our life based on the use of the value perceived in our life.Protected natural rights is the basis of evolutionary social order in nature.
5. THE CONSTITUTION DEFINES SELF DETERMINATION AND ESTABLISHMENT OF VALUE AS CIVIL RIGHTS
The U.S Constitution, based on the Declaration of Independence, is a governing principle identifying natural instincts as rights within a natural process under which various systems of changing laws can evolve to protect individual, natural civil rights, beyond a reasonable doubt. It is the most useful document of natural social order, with the ability to protect it’s interests, currently available on the planet.
THE GOLDEN RULE GOVERNS THE CONSTITUTION, SELF DETERMINATION AND ESTABLISHMENT OF VALUE
The Constitution says each individual is meant to establish values to determine their chosen quality of life as long as they do not deny that right to another without compensation. New ideas have been allowed to fruition under these protections. We now can produce enough around the world for everyone. With scarcity gone, selfishness is a choice with a downside. But old ways die hard. Old ways begin and end. The Presence of Creation is eternal.
