The Universe Principles of Right Action and Right Attitude are based upon acting in alignment with the most repeated core success action patterns of the last 13.7 billion years of evolution. The Universe Principles of Right Action and Right Attitude should be viewed as a new and comprehensive set of essential actions and attitudes that balance individual and collective rights and responsibilities in sustainable, effective, and universalized ways.
Why The Universe Principles are Important:
Directly or indirectly, the evolutionary processes of the universe condition and control all actions within the universe. Therefore, understanding the evolutionary processes controlling and conditioning the universe will help you make the right decisions and take the right actions at the right time and in the right way.
The Universe Principles of Right Action
One uses the Universe Principles of Right Action in wise and balanced application with the Universe Principles of Right Attitude. Think about the Universe Principles of Right Attitude as creating the right mindset so that one is able to persist and stay motivated in a positive way to execute the Universe Principles of Right Action.
“The most practical belief system for a large-scale society, in the long run, is one that is firmly anchored in factual reality.”-- DAVID SLOAN WILSON
"Evolutionary science is a branch of science that is one of the branches of science that is most firmly anchored in reality. The Universe Principles (Right Attitudes (below) and Right Actions,) represent evolution's most proven, basic and controlling rules as well as evolution's core operating system." Lawrence Wollersheim
The Universe Principles of Right Attitude Are
1.) From What We Know Now, Only One Universe Exists, Everything is Included and Nothing is Excluded from this Great Union:
The universe is the only "text" with no "context." It is the context that holds everything in one total union!
You are completely embedded within this single inter-connected universe union of inextricable inter-dependent energy sharing and relationship with all other life and things in the universe. This is not a philosophic opinion or spiritual theory. Evolution science has clearly demonstrated that we are all embedded within this oneness of the universe's universal union!
This means that nothing that is embedded in this one universe and universal union is ever truly separate or excluded. When we understand and then act from this inherent universe truth of universal oneness and its inherent inclusion of all things the separation and tensions of "us vs them" in our interactions with other people and things begin to dissolve to both our own and the world's great benefit. Whole new possibilities of creative (and loving,) action are possible when one realizes and embraces this "nothing is ultimately and completely separate from you as scientific truth.
Each day this means fully embracing being in a co-evolutionary, co-creative, and co-responsible universe union composed of self, other beings, the evolving Universe, and (if you are spiritually inclined,) the Ultimate Reality that was the origin of the Universe! (You can choose your own either secular or spiritual definition of Ultimate Reality by clicking the preceding Ultimate Reality link.
2.) Embrace the Fundamental Is-ness and Neutral Quality of all Universe Reality:
Realize that at the most fundamental, simple, and scientifically provable level what can be said with the highest certainty and widespread agreement is--- that "the Universe just IS" and, this is-ness and "neutral" quality of the universe and its parts also implies an empowering and wonderful converse, which is that life, the universe and the universe’s parts (like you) are not inherently deficient, naturally flawed or intrinsically bad in any way --- at least when seen as being parts of the universe's wondrous evolutionary process viewed from the whole system at universe scale.
3.) Embrace Continuous Learning and the Development of ALL Possible Inherent Potentials of Any Thing (Individually or Collectively,) as THE Primary "What's Happening" of Universe Evolution:
Fully acknowledge the evolving Universe is primarily a "university" for having diverse and novel experiences and learning how to release all inherent potentials for the development of any thing. Once a thing releases its inherent potentials to some degree it then learns, adapts, and develops better. This occurs most optimally through conscious relationships of inter-connected and inter-dependent sharing, toward greater unions(s).
Imitate the universe and embrace the attitude of a life-long release of your full developmental potentials and continuous learning and adaption as a primary life necessity. When any problem or conflict arises it would be wise to see them initially as a possible developmental, learning, or adaptation issues before going on to other remedial approaches.
This releasing your full developmental potentials and continuous learning is an "essential beginning" universe attitude. It is so important that after establishing any needed justice safety and security foundation (so that sustainable action may take place,) there needs to be a primary, continual and major focus of any successful system upon the development, learning/training, and education of its members.
This strongly indicates that to be optimally successful, individuals, families, businesses, and communities must adopt policies and practices that always and continuously first provide an abundance of fundamental support to the potential development, learning/training/education process within themselves and their groups.
4.) Everything that is now Occurring as an Integral and Essential part of the Universe’s Continuous Evolutionary Process of Ever-Ongoing Change:
This "everything is ALWAYS in a continuous evolutionary process" principle of continuous change also indirectly and subtly implies that --- every universe part or whole emerges, develops, or HAS in its own inherent “perfect” timing and it develops through its own unique and ever-changing evolutionary processes! When seen from the biggest evolutionary universe scale perspective, one could even say that --- "things do not happen to you they happen with you and for you, because you are also a vital and integral part of the Universe's amazing evolutionary process!
This ever-changing process also implies there will be differentials between things in different states of evolution and that accepting that inherent differential (differences,) in the evolutionary process at different levels of development will naturally create dynamic tensions (conflicts,) and stress. The good news is that this is part of the natural process and it is also ok! This is ok because these elements of difference, tensional conflict, and stress will also always be used in one way or another to advance the developmental dynamics and progress of the evolutionary processes of the universe as a whole.
5.) Realize that Everything always Works out for the Good of the Evolution of the Universe as a Whole:
Observe that over the last 13.7 billion years everything, including conflicts, seeming retrogressions, "failed experiments" and even extinctions in parts or subsystems are eventually directly or indirectly utilized and recycled by the master universe’s evolutionary processes to forward the value-interests (the goods and wellbeing) of the Universe as a whole system.
If you are aligned with universe evolution by living the Universe Principles of Sustainability, a far greater portion of the time --- things will be good for your well-being as well!
6.) Enjoy this Current Moment in Universe Evolution Because it "Really is the Most Evolved and Best that it has Ever Been:"
Embrace all this fact implies because --- progressive universe evolution actually is now at its highest known level of evolutionary development when seen as a whole system! While there will be conflicts, seeming retrogressions, "failed experiments" and even extinctions in parts or subsystems of the master universe system, but as a whole universe system, it is the most evolved and best it has ever been!
One could even extend this "most evolved and best ever" attitude to the current state of the Earth when the planet is seen as a whole system over the whole 4.2 billion years of its developmental process.
7.) Embrace Life's truly Unpredictable Uncertainties:
They are intrinsic to the evolutionary process and hold elements essential to future evolution and the continual preservation of hope possibilities. (An ever-present element of uncertainty is also natural due to the ever-increasing complexity and process spontaneities inherent in the evolutionary process.)
8.) Let Go and Move On to What’s Next --- When Any Thing IS Done or Needs to be Over:
All of the resources of what is over will then be more effectively recycled back into the universe’s evolutionary processes and be “reborn” into new experiments, forms, parts, possibilities, unions, and directions and, one may also be considerably less burdened in achieving their next step in evolutionary development having let go and moved on. Enjoy Surfing the Waves of Continuous Evolutionary Change!
Evolution unfailingly does this letting go and moving on every time it breaks down and recycles nonaligned and non-adaptive (failed,) parts or wholes in acts of destructive creation. Evolution does this to once again forward the progressive directionality and vital value interests of evolution by and through reusing and recycling the resources of failed, no longer needed, adaptive, or relevant evolutionary experiments.
9.) Delight in the Universe being Engaged in a Grand and Creative and Adventure and its Progressive Evolutionary Processes Actually Taking it Somewhere:
Because universe evolution is going somewhere we can align with its processes and directionality to enhance our own success as well as to do our parts to sustainably forward the progressive evolutionary progress of humanity and life in the universe.
10.) Celebrate the Abundance of the Universe's Near Unlimited Creativity and Energy:
Celebrate your existence within a Universe of near limitless creative potential, energy abundance, beauty, continuously evolving process, and opportunity and creative spontaneities and uncertainties. Create reserves from this abundance.
Be grateful each day and celebrate the adventure, surprises, and opportunities brought to you by a progressively evolving Universe that is increasing in novelty, complexity, learning, adaptability, and intelligence.
"Over the past 13.7 billion years of progressive evolutionary creativity the universe appears to have a broad creative directionality to it and it appears to have continually repeated certain patterns and actions that cause certain parts and wholes within it to be sustained and thrive. When we understand and align with this evolutionary directionality as stated in the science-illuminated meta-principles of the Universe Principles of Sustainability our lives, communities and nations will thrive and be sustainable, our lives will be as meaningful as they can possibly be and, we will also not surprisingly --- be living in an ethical congruity with the life-affirming aspects of the moral codes of the Religion 1.0 and Religion 1.5 religions." Lawrence Wollersheim
We have finally reached the amazing phase of evolution where we can now become evolution’s partner consciously co-evolving universe evolution. The above are the attitudes that help us do it! When we simply live sustainable lifestyles and livelihoods applying the Universe Principles and we enact laws that reflect the application of the Universe Principles when applied to groups, corporations, and nations we will attain a just civilization and a meaningful and sustainable prosperity for all.
The Benefits of Using the Universe Principles of Right Attitude and Right Action
If you consistently apply the Universe Principles to your life and within the groups to which you belong, you and your groups will have the highest possible probability of achieving a sustainable prosperity rich in meaning and, which also creates a just civilization even in the sea of future uncertainties that we all exist within. Living the Universe Principles IS the optimal way to master and "play the success percentages” by having the odds heavily weighted to your or your group’s advantage as compared to individuals or groups who do not know, understand or practice them.
On the other hand and unfortunately, failure to align oneself and one's organizations with the meta-patterns of universe progressive evolution as found within the Universe Principles results in the other great meta-pattern (and process,) of progressive evolution to take over --- destructive creation. This pattern of destructive creation is essentially the breakdown and recycling of any and all failed, non-adaptive, or otherwise out-of-universe alignment parts or wholes to be recycled and reused later in some other evolutionary experiment or situation to once again attempt to further forward the unstoppable directionality of progressive evolution.
The Universe Principles are the essential and irreplaceable tools needed by everyone to successfully forward the evolution of ALL life into an amazing and beautiful future! Living by these new meta-principles provides the global society a wholly rational and ultimately worthy primary goal structure in a life of service that is both greater than themselves and that enhances not only their own personal life success but also creates deep life satisfaction and meaning.
Why the Right Attitudes Work So Well
Why the Universe Principles of Right Attitude are important is simple. Attitude can be likened in many ways to the invisible field of conditioning space in which some action takes place. If the attitude is affirming and supportive, actions generally go better and its opposite is equally true. Thinking of attitude as a kind of conditioning field of space consider the following:
a.) The space-time qualities of the universe appear to pre-condition, pre-qualify and pre-control ALL universe actions --- even the Universe Principles of Right Action.
b.) If any action remains out of alignment with the subtle preconditioning or pre-controlling space/time field qualities of the universe, it also will eventually be slowed, pushed back, broken down, and/or then recycled.
How to use the Universe Principles of Right Attitude
"[Evolution] appears to be not only a series of accidents the course of which is determined only by the change of environments during Earth history and the resultant struggle for existence,… but is governed by definite laws… The discovery of these laws constitutes one of the most important tasks of the future. Ludwig von Bertalanffy, biologist"
- Read, meditate upon and practice them every day and discover for yourself just how dramatically your life will improve. It takes many readings and at least 90 days of practice for their wisdom and power to slowly evolve away any of your present deeply embedded and habituated thinking and reactions. You will never know how well they work until you actually practice and apply them even if you do not fully understand them! Just start reading and practicing --- explore and experiment. (Click here to go to the short forms of the Universe Principles of both Right Action and Right Attitude. They are easier to read and practice on a regular basis in this form.)
- Regularly think about how you are or how are not currently using applying them in your life or in the groups to which you belong. If you are applying them, figure out how you can apply them more. If you are not applying them, figure out how you can then watch the proactive evolution unfold! It will take real-life self-discipline to start and then continue to read and apply these life success and sustainability critical principles.
- Remember in your practice that the universe attitudes are the discriminating and wise spirit from which you apply all of the Universe Principles of Right Action in a balanced way. The right application and right attitude equal right results! This is very important to remember. You can do the correct thing with the wrong attitude and the correct thing will produce wrong results. Always apply the universe action principles from the perspective of the universe attitudes!

How the Universe Principles of Right Attitude Relate to Justice and Energy Management
The Universe Principles of Right Attitude relate to justice and energy in more indirect ways than the Universe Principles of Right Action. When seen as a collection, particularly when you look at the Universe Principles of Right Attitude you will see the themes of non-resistance to what is and acceptance of what is and seeing that "isness" in the light of the whole system's evolutionary process over the whole of evolution. Those attitudes promote non-resistance to what is and acceptance of what is helping to create flow. In energy terms, resistance reduces energy flow and efficiency and vice versa.
In terms of justice, the Universe Principles of Right Attitude seeing the oneness and union of the whole universe system reduces the feelings of complete separation from the "other" (us versus them,) that most often makes creating or maintaining justice more difficult. Justice, which is the essential foundation to all sustainable and prosperous social interaction will improve dramatically as more individuals realize they are already physically embedded in one universal union. Once realized from that new attitude of ultimate union and oneness all kinds of new wise cooperation and positive interactions are now not only possible but are also seen as wise.
The Universe Principles' Right Attitudes and the Human Virtues
In one way or another, the Universe Principles of Sustainability and the value interests of progressive evolution also embrace most all of the key human virtues in one way or another. Now that you are familiar with these science-grounded meta-principles and value interests of the evolutionary universe you can also go to our human virtues master list and also try to connect up each human virtue listed with one or more of the meta-principles and value interests of progressive evolution and the above Universe Principles.
You may have to be a little creative, but it will not be hard to see that our key human virtues have roots far deeper and are more complex than just our spiritual traditions. It appears that our ancestors also saw although incompletely what successfully adaptive individual and group behavior to numerous kinds of environments looked like and they tried to teach these adaptive behaviors to their children as human virtues.
For an even deeper understanding of the power behind the Right Attitudes
The following are complex materials designed for advanced students who have read evolution science books particularly biology, cosmology, and physics on and off the advanced student reading list. You do not need to understand these materials to use and practice the Right Attitudes of the Universe Principles. These materials are here for those rare individuals who need to understand why something is true or valid at the deepest of levels.
Within the inherent spatial and quantum qualities of the physical universe are found result-conditioning attributes that affect and condition most all actions and results of progressive evolution that take place within the physical universe --- and, that makes them critically important! These inherent result-conditioning spatial or quantum attributes and values can also easily be converted into and called universe "attitudes" or "values," which also can be used for empowering your success in all areas of life.
The following information lays out these result-conditioning universe qualities, attributes, and values. They have been extrapolated from the most current cosmological and progressive evolutionary science.
Knowing and utilizing these time-tested 13.7 billion-year-old reality-conditioning attributes can dramatically improve the immediate quality of your life not to mention your future success. These universe attributes and values also can become an empowering lifestyle practice and part of a new universal ethical code for Evolutioneers. As you review these physical universe attributes and values you may also discover that they both transcend and yet still creatively include many of the most life-affirming virtues and perspectives from humanity’s greatest philosophic and spiritual wisdom traditions.
The physics of attitude
An important principle discovered in physics is that the inherent qualities or potentialities of the space field in which an action takes place can powerfully affect and condition both the action itself and, the results of any action that takes place within that particular kind of space field. This powerful principle is often called the "the field of space conditions any action within that space field" principle.
This principle also implies that the inherent qualities and potentialities (attributes/values,) of a space field have a partial, but primal importance in relation to any actions taking place within that space field. In relation to this principle, it is important to recognize that the universe IS the master quantum and macro space field which conditions all actions and all results within ALL sub-fields taking place within it. The best way to think about the mass of actions and results taking place within the universe is from a systems perspective and the dominant system for viewing the universe is progressive evolution.
"The universe is the arc to which all lines must conform." the French evolutionary scientist Teilhard De Chardin
Our current sciences have now described many of the macro and more subtle quantum and result-conditioning qualities, attributes, and values of the universe's master space field including in some cases how those qualities affect the processes and results of "things" acting within the space field of the master universe. Those results conditioning space qualities, attributes, and field values are manifest in both agency promoting (for the part,) and communion promoting (for the whole/union,) modes.
The Universe’s Master Field Qualities are the Action and Result Conditioning Universe Attributes and Value-Interests that Control and Condition the Actions of Progressive Evolution in the Universe and Create what we call the Universe “Attitudes."
The following are the key inherent universe space and quantum action conditioning and controlling master field qualities and value probabilities (interests,) derived from current cosmological and progressive evolutionary science that describe the multi-faceted nature of the universe’s master time, space energy field(s). This master universe field ultimately conditions and/or controls all of the actions and results going on within it.
These attributes may often seem in paradoxical relationships to one another just as quantum physics from which many of them are derived is also loaded with paradox.
The universe’s master field comes into being because of the first massive “energy” throughput from the initiating big bang event to the universe (and possibly continuous energy throughput according to some theories), which produced the energy, matter, time, and space of the universe, as we know it. (We still do not know what occurred before the Big Bang and exactly what kind of “energy” created the energy that appeared after the Big Bang.)
Because the universe’s field directly or indirectly conditions and controls all actions and results going on within it, it is important to know what the many qualities of the Universe’s space field are so that one may use that valuable information in one’s life.
The interconnected and result conditioning master space field attributes, value-interests, and “attitudes” of the post-Big Bang Universe are:
- Inherent “is-ness:” (At its most basic minimum level, the existence of the universe or any thing within it --- just is as it is. This is universe is-ness --- pure and simple. This also implies that the physical universe or any thing within it is not inherently or intrinsically good bad or deficient in any way --- no matter what our current usual partial view perspectives, religious beliefs, or personal attitudes about either the nature of the universe or the things within it might be. The inherent simple "issness" of the universe also infers that the universe is a mostly neutral space in its posture toward the parts and wholes within it. While the universe's evolutionary directionality does seem to favor the creation of cooperative groupings as well as parts of itself that better align with its evolutionary meta-principles in general and as a whole system it can be thought of as mostly neutral seeking only to enact its inherent meta-principles or laws of the evolutionary process.)
- native original inclusiveness, oneness or union and unity: This is the always-current cohesion, union, and unity of all things within the limits of time and space of the known universe. (In qualified ways all things are sharing the time and space within the universe's totality of existence. The original and ongoing inclusiveness and union of all things within the universe implies that at its deepest levels the universe is essentially an interdependent sharing experience.
- native and abundant potentiality: (At the level of the part of the universe, potentiality is manifest as the drive to release and realize the inherent full nature and evolutionary possibilities of a thing. On the level of the universe as a whole, potentiality appears to be manifesting as the drive to exhaust all possibilities for creativity and novelty and all of the universe’s other main value interests at every level of existence with that creativity and novelty eventually adding to the amazingly abundant richness and quality of the progressive directionality of evolution in the universe. This universe’s space field potentiality manifests and fulfills itself in many concrete ways such as parts or whole unions within the universe learning, adapting, showing emergent self-organization, etc.)
- native transparency: (The universe hides nothing from anyone at any time looking in the right way with the right instruments. It is always fully transparent,)
- native creativity: Within the universe's native potentialities lies its realizable and inherent native creativity. This creativity continuously bursts forth both from the inherent creativity within all parts of the universe from what could be an inherent conditioning creativity within the time-space itself. The potential for self-organization (autopoiesis,) is just one example of this native inherent creativity.
- inherent universe dynamism, continuous change, evolvability, process: (This equals an abundant and continuous change in part because of the process of continuous energy flow or flow-through continuously creating the universe and the consequent ongoing energy exchanges seeking to establish (or needed to establish,) new dynamic energy balances as new or expanding parts and wholes [unions.] The Universe’s continuous dynamism/process of change, and its dynamic balance conditioning qualities show up as the following sub-levels of the evolutionary process:)
- incompleteness: the manifestation of the inherent inclination or impulse toward becoming more, evolving, changing, growth, (growth and transformation is abundantly and continually emerging toward resolving this "incompleteness" and these emergences of new growth are aligned by evolution in the direction of the universe's progressive evolution or they are recycled. Growth can also mean a growth that evolves to new levels when older levels of growth run their course such as when one grows physically to adulthood. After a human being has physically grown to full capacity there are still many levels of maturity, skill, intellectual or other forms of growth still available.) Incompleteness is a paradoxical term as it is used in association with universe qualities. It does not imply any deficiency or imperfection. It just means a pre next evolutionary step state possibility. This inherent "incompleteness" toward growth manifests as and through:
- emergence and its consequent differentiation of what has been emerged: (The universe abundantly emerges new things and those emergences create differentials, differences or separation for those new things. The existence of differentials [differences and separation between things,] that can also create the appearances of dissonance [conflict perspectives,] is because of the natural separation created by the mere differentials themselves. Differentiation between things and their resultant dissonance is utilized by evolution as one of its most effective tools to energize, motivate and stimulate optimal adaptation and growth. On a purely physical level the universe sometimes uses differentials and polarities to generate and create energy,)
- complexity: (More emergence and differentiation creates an abundance of more complex things. Which then creates increasing: inherent spontaneity, (caused by the inherent creativity, novelty, diverse innovation of the universe --- this new complexity, which creates at various levels a new scale of new uncertainty, [unpredictability,] linked with new probabilities created through better future modeling and prediction technologies,])
- inherent and increasing uncertainty: (In the physical universe, absolute certainties and truths are in essence relativistic probabilities or in some severe cases, self-created illusions or delusions. This is due in part to abundantly increasing complexity, (diversity) spontaneity, and often-nonlinear creativity of the universe. These levels of increasing uncertainty created by increasing creative emergence, complexity, (diversity), and unpredictable nonlinear spontaneities create the various levels of natural unpredictability, uncertainty, and the adventure of our lives. The increasing uncertainties and their consequent increasing unpredictabilities far outstrip our far lower increasing abilities to model and predict probable future outcomes. Thus far our future modeling and future prediction technologies are not even close to keeping up with the increasing levels of uncertainty occurring because of the accelerating levels of increasing complexity, diversity, and cause and effect non-linearity in so many areas of life. For example, when the gasses hydrogen and oxygen became spontaneously mixed in the right proportions who could have predicted the more complex and diverse nonlinear cause and effect outcome of a new solid coming into being called water.
- expansion potentiality: (Growth implies expansion. The galaxies are expanding away from each other faster and faster because of the dark energy effect of space. On a cultural level --- complexity, knowledge, uncertainty, non-linear cause, and effect, interdependence, interconnectedness, and change (to name, but a few cultural qualities,) also all appear to be in states of accelerating expansion.)
- native/inherent directionality: (All things are seeking to grow and fulfill their inherent and natural potentialities. The fruit manifests the potentials contained within its seed. Here we are mainly talking about the universe as a whole unto itself. As a whole system, there is also a progressive directionality inherent in the universe's evolution seeking to manifest its inherent and natural potentials. There is also inherent directionality within universe parts as well.) All of the above continuous process steps of abundant universe dynamism moving things toward growth (or change,) are facilitated by the dynamically balancing qualities and interactions of:
- centralization, compression: (There exist numerous known and unknown attractive forces within the space field of the universe that draw things together in acts of centralization. These are forces such as gravity, electromagnetism, the strong and weak atomic forces, and theoretically, dark matter. There also appear to be other biological and non-biological attractive forces, which in living organisms and cultures naturally cause new centralizing unions and communing wholes to be formed and maintained.
- native inter-connectedness and sharing: (Inter-dependence and inter-connectedness are intrinsically linked and paradoxical in some ways. For example, new physics research shows that there is nothing within the universe that is not interconnected at some level to all other things included within the universe. Because of that, all things no matter how seemingly independent are also inter-dependent to varying degrees upon all other things within the universe. To varying degrees, the universe is a system where anything in the system is in effect to some degree dependent on all other things within the system. This is because dependent or independent parts and/or wholes [unions,] of the universe's inclusiveness naturally always share some form of energy, spacial relationship at some scale, energy exchanges or relationship or reciprocating cohesion or forms, which are essential to exist or grow. This native inter-connectiveness of all things in the one universe union implies where space energy and matter is shared and transformed implies that sharing is also a fundamental attribute and meta-principle that allows the universe to exist and function. If this is true then sharing as a principle appears to have a much larger role to fulfill in our social, economic, political, and religious systems.)
All of the preceding sub-processes of universe dynamism when directionalized as growth (not merely change,) then lead to or involve:
- dynamic balance: An ever-changing state of new and evolving "imperfect" changing energy/matter balance within the universe itself as a whole and also found within sub-states of dynamic balance within some parts and wholes [unions,] of the universe. (Dynamic balance is not a static perfect balance, but a paradoxical "balanced" state of continuous energy/matter change within certain necessary tolerance levels creating new levels of simultaneously closed and yet open dynamic balance. This dynamic balance is vitally needed between the differentials (differences, what we often see as conflicts,) found within various parts and wholes of the universe to maintain their stable yet evolving, closed yet open relationships and existence of relationship. Matter and energy in the universe are constant, but they take on a myriad of constantly evolving forms. For this possibility to occur there is a paradoxical and simultaneous closedness and openness that must also occur throughout the physical universe's evolution to also create necessary ever-changing states of dynamic balance. It is the various states of necessary dynamic balance that dynamically adjusts where necessary the differentials, differences, and conflicts between parts and wholes so that various essential dynamic balances (unions) may take place or be maintained so that not only existence, but also the various steps of progressive evolution can continue to unfold.)
- the evolutionary impulse toward unification: (More universe parts are growing and evolving into more new and larger wholes/unions of greater cooperation and scale towards a theoretical whole super-union and super-organism that includes all parts of the universe in cooperative alignment with the universe's progressive directionality,) Which then takes the dynamism and dynamic balance processes listed just above paradoxically "back to" a new, evolved and enhanced form of its original…
- union, unity, inclusiveness: (On the level of the whole, the universe may not be just the ultimate union, unity, and inclusiveness. It might also be the only true indivisible unity and inclusiveness in scientifically known existence when seen as the currently largest known totality. The universe may be “the only text without any larger context” as Thomas Berry said. On the level of the part, there is also an inherent union and unity within each thing helping to hold it together and make it continue to be what its nature is.) This then takes the dynamism and dynamic balance processes listed just above paradoxically the seeming completing evolutionary impulse manifesting itself toward or as:
- transcendence : (The universe and the parts of the universe [some parts through increasing autonomy and consciousness] appear to be moving or growing toward first realizing then transcending the limits of themselves as individual parts and, in the participation of these parts in the creation of new dynamic wholes/unions, which are also seeking to transcend themselves. Every part of the universe and the universe itself appears to be trying to transcend itself over time.)
How to Creatively Apply the Universe's Life conditioning Attitudes and Values to Practical Daily Living Success?
"[Evolution] appears to be not only a series of accidents the course of which is determined only by the change of environments during Earth history and the resultant struggle for existence,… but is governed by definite laws… The discovery of these laws constitutes one of the most important tasks of the future. Ludvig von Bertalanffy, biologist"
“The most practical belief system for a large-scale society, in the long run, is one that is firmly anchored in factual reality.”-- DAVID SLOAN WILSON
The above macro and subtle quantum result-conditioning qualities and potentialities of the master universe space field can be creatively expressed as in the success attitudes, which include most of the space conditioning qualities of the universe.) These attitudes directly or indirectly condition all of the actions and results of the actions taking place within the universe.
As such when embraced, they will help to successfully optimize the daily and long-term actions and results of your life or organization. When applying the companion to the universe’s success-action principles (listed in Part 1 of the new Universe Principles of Sustainability,) you will get far better results in whatever you are doing if you first get "into the zone and flow" by holding and embodying in both a balanced and integral way the optimal result-conditioning attitudinal "space" conditions as described above and also found in creative expression in Part 2 of the new Universe Principles of Sustainability.
Footnotes, Qualifications and Additional Resources and Information Regarding the Right Attitudes of the Universe Principles
1.) If you are a philosopher, you may want to see how the meta-principles of universe evolution defeat the arguments of the Naturalistic Fallacy. Click here to find out why and how the meta-principles of universe evolution legitimately create values and "oughts" and "shoulds" to improve our personal lives and world.
2.) When both the action and attitudinal parts of the Universe Principles of Sustainability are taken and used as a balanced whole they are in effect a new universal evolutionary ethics, meta-ethics, and meta-morality. This is important because:
“The greatest fight in the history of the world and the world of ideas is the fight to establish a universal morality.” Stefan Molyneux philosopher
3.) The Universe Principles and the Open Source Software Movement: In open-source software terms the Universe Principles are the Kernel of all Kernels! They are the "core software program and core evolutionary algorithms: of the successful universe evolution of life itself and everything that creates, sustains, and thrives it.
The kernel conditions and controls all sub-systems and secondary processes just like the macro processes of Universe evolution condition and control the sub-systems and secondary processes of evolution. Once you know the evolutionary universe's kernel of core processes you can then better execute the restructuring and "re-coding" all of our economic, social, and political systems to better them.
4.) Looking at the Universe Principles of Sustainability as a whole and particularly through their keywords like fair exchange and sustainability one can begin to see in new and expanded wording the core essence, key parts, or more enlightened aspects of almost every ethical, moral and legal code humanity has ever developed. This is only natural because humanity has always basically used what happens in real human life in nature (the universe,) for creating its codes even when it attributes the origin of these codes to other more supernatural sources. Click here to see how we have woven the Universe Principles of Sustainability into our code of conduct and ethics for living.
5.) The Universe Principles of Sustainability come in two parts, the Universe Principles of Right Action and the Universe Principles of Right Mind and Right Attitude. We recommend reading the action principles first. The Universe Principles are derived from the soon-to-be-released new book the Universe Manifesto. Additional explanatory commentary and exercises for each principle will be published soon. There has been 3 years of new cosmological and evolutionary science research and thinking put in just to get them this far.
6.) The Universe has demonstrated adaptive patterns that can use and incorporate unforeseen spontaneities to eventually also forward its core value-interests.
7.) The universe as a whole system unto itself appears to behave much like smaller living evolutionary systems or, is it really that smaller living evolutionary systems are behaving like the universe when it is viewed as a whole system. Is the universe itself --- a living thing or organism at the ultimate universe scale?
8.) If you are of a spiritual nature in the traditional sense of Religion 1.0 or Religion 1.5 and, you would like to see how the above meta-principles of progressive evolution could relate to better understanding the nature and purposes of God or, God's will or, even God's universal commandments, click here.
9.) The word Universe can also include whatever you call or believe the Universe’s origin to be, the great mystery of the universe's origin, total reality, God Buddha, Ultimate Reality etc.
10.) Learning and living the Universe Principles of Sustainability in both action and attitudinal forms is also the Level 3 practices of Evolution 2.0 and if you are of a spiritual nature, Evolution Spirituality aka Religion 2.0.
11.) Each of the Universe Principles taken collectively also suggests all of the important educational core curricula that Universe Evolutioneers and universe citizens should pursue and that integral, evolutionary, environmental and sustainability organizations should be teaching to create effective and complete curriculums.
12.) If you have not yet read the full description of progressive evolution, --- the core facts upon which the Universe Principles are based, we recommend you do this advanced study soon.
13.) We strongly suggest that you print out the Universe Principles and then read and practice them every day and discover for yourself just how dramatically your life, groups, and the world can improve. It takes many daily readings of them and at least 90 days of conscious practice of them for their power to slowly evolve away any contrary deeply embedded or habituated thinking and reactions. My clarity and life has improved hugely since I have begun practicing them and, it has been far more than worth all of that conscious effort. Practicing ALL of these principles in balance and not just practicing one or two of them is what it means to actually be or become a complete Evolutioneer and life sustainability and thrivability advocate. (Click here to go to the short forms of the Universe Principles of both Right Action and Right Attitude. They are easier to read and practice on a regular basis in this form.)
14.) The process of universe dynamism described in the Attitudes space field section is not always directionalized adaptation and growth. It can also become just change or grow experiments that dead-end, go off in novel tangents and stall or stall after various levels of growth. When growth and adaptation stop the universe breaks down the growth experiment and recycles its parts.
15.) Whenever physicists look into the quantum levels of the universe and the space field of the universe they encounter paradoxes. Some of the above action conditioning "attitudes" of the universe also paradoxically cross over and can appear to be both an inherent conditioning quality of the universe itself as well as a universe action meta-patterns. Some universe action patterns above also needed to be included to help show the relationship or sequence of the conditioning "attitudes" of the universe to the action meta-patterns of the universe to better understand the conditioning "attitudes" of the universe and their relationships to each other as a whole progressive evolutionary system.
16.) Although this attitudes booklet has been based in part on parts of the works of the following individuals the inclusion of their names does not imply any specific endorsement of the Universe Principles, Evolution 2.0, or its new Universe Evolutionary Worldview as expressed herein, this booklet or the information expressed within it. These individuals have been mentioned in part to gratefully recognize their contributions to expanding the areas of cosmology, big history, progressive evolutionary science and/or conscious evolution that are emerging within Evolution 2.0 and its Universe Evolutionary Worldview. This article is based in part upon the universe and progressive evolutionary science and theories expressed by Teilhard De Chardin, Erich Jantsch, John Stewart, Michael Dowd, Connie Barlow, Nancy Ellen Abrams, Brian Swimme, Thomas Berry, Joel Primack, David Christian, David Ray Griffin, Sri Aurobindo, Barbara Marx Hubbard, and Ken Wilber as well as numerous other evolution theorists, scientists, authors, and speakers.
17.) To dive deeper into more about the science of the Universe Principles and universe evolution click here. This is mostly for advanced students and it covers much of what was not covered in the medium-length descriptions of the Universe Principles found in this online booklet.
18.) We hope that you have also discovered in reading the above universe attitudes that they both transcend and yet still creatively include the most life-affirming perspectives and classic virtues of humanity’s greatest philosophic and spiritual wisdom traditions. The above new universe principles of progressive evolution can act as a de facto lifestyle practices guide and new ethical code for Evolutioneers or, a statement of the attributes of the Universe Evolutionary Worldview (among many other things.)
19.) This booklet has been provided to Universe Spirit by Lawrence Wollersheim.
20.) If you are of a spiritual nature in the traditional sense of Religion 1.0 or Religion 1.5 and, you would like to see how the above meta-principles of progressive evolution could relate to better understanding the nature and purposes of God or, God's will or, even God's universal commandments, click here.
