"[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
"The Universe Principles are simply the universe's most reoccurring deep evolutionary patterns that successfully create, sustain and thrive life --- both for the individual part and collectively for the group." Lawrence Wollersheim
When applied as a whole and integrated system, the Universe Evolutionary Principles (both in it's action and attitudinal forms,) are the core structural principles proven by 13.7 billion years of successful progressive universe evolution on how to build and maintain sustainable and thriving individuals, families, groups, businesses, communities, nations, planets and a universe. They are the biological secrets of life. The are the rules of evolution's most basic "operating system" used by Evolutioneers to improve any condition. These principles when ignored or not significantly followed are the deep causes of failure of any individual or group or their activities --- causing both individuals, groups and their activities to be eventually broken down and be recycled.
If you consistently apply the Universe Evolutionary Principles both you and the groups to which you belong will have the highest possible probability of achieving a meaningful and sustainable prosperity, which also creates a just civilization --- even in the sea of current and future uncertainties in which we all exist.
Living the Universe Evolutionary Principles IS the optimal way to "master the real success percentages” of life 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. It is through the wise and balanced application of all of the Universe Principles in an integrated and systemic way that a true and sustainable prosperity and success can be achieved. These Universe Principles are also a universally applicable evolutionary ethics.
Failure to align oneself and one's organizations with the core patterns of universe progressive evolution as found within the Universe Evolutionary Principles of Sustainability results in the other great meta-pattern (and process) of progressive evolution taking over; that pattern is essentially the breakdown and recycling of any and all non-learning, non-adaptive and non-cooperating individual 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 mentioned in detail in the rest of this article.
The Universe Principles and the Open Source Software Movement
In open source software terms the Universe Principles are the Open Source Kernel of all Kernals! They are the most basic rules of evolution's core "operating system." They are the "core software program and core evolutionary algorithm: 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 re-structuring and "re-coding" all of our economic, social and political systems to better align "kernel" of the universe's successful evolutionary processes so that those secondary applications run more effectively and successfully. Universe Principles are the Kernel of successful life itself.
The Universe Principles of right action (below,) are based upon acting in alignment with the most repeated core action success patterns of the last 13.7 billion years of evolution. They align an optimal balance of individual freedom interests (agency,) group (communion.) responsibility interests and the master universe's evolutionary interests. (The companion Universe Principles of right attitude are linked to near the bottom of the page.)
A simple way to think about these most repeated universe core success patterns is that they are as the key value interests of the universe in its evolutionary process. In the Universe Evolutionary Principles you will often see the phrase “in alignment with the universe’s value interests,” therefore it is important to know just what those universe value interests actually are before reading the Universe Evolutionary Principles and why the universe’s value interests are in reality so much more dominant and powerful than your or your group’s localized interests. Why they are so important is simple.
- The universe and its evolutionary processes is the largest know master system that unconditionally is the both last and first force that ultimately and unstoppably conditions, qualifies and controls all of its sub systems --- sub systems like you, your business, your government and even the planet as a whole system. If anyone or anything continually or repeatedly remains out of alignment with these universe core value interests, they or it will eventually be slowed, pushed back, broken down and then recycled.
- Whether you are consciously aware of it or not, you (as a universe sub-system,) exist and are completely embedded within the unstoppable flow of the master Universe's progressive evolutionary procession towards the universe's ultimate destinations. If your individual or group values and actions are out of alignment with the master Universe's unstoppable progressive evolutionary progression your actions and goals will not be sustainably fruitful. They will eventually be be broken down and recycled because of the master universe's dominant over-control of all its embedded sub-systems.
- Ultimately, in evolutionary terms in spite of how it culturally appears, “You do not belong to you..." [alone or even mostly]. "You belong to the universe." Buckminster Fuller.
Important Note: Always apply the Universe Principles of Right Action using the balancing "attitude" perspectives derived from the Universe Principles of Right Mind and Right Attitude! (Farther below, you will find a link to the 9 Universe Attitudes near the bottom of this page. Living by these new principles also provides a wholly rational and ultimately worthy primary goal in life to serve that is both greater than themselves and that enhances not only personal life success, but also creates a deep life satisfaction and meaning.)
The Universe’s Core "Value Interests" Found Within its Progressive Evolution
The universe’s core "value interests" appear to be to release ALL inherent potentials for experience and relationship and to exhaust all possibilities for increasing, improving or developing:
- Continuous creative release of its potentials and potentiality (for a created or evolved thing to become what it can.) This continuous release or realization of potential births continuous evolutionary change, which births increasing
- Complexity, which creates
- Increasing novelty/variety/diversity, which with increasing complexity eventually creates increasing
- Uncertainty and, which also eventually creates increasing:
- Creative expansion/growth/development/production and in some cases reproduction, which then births increasing, (Within growth and reproduction, which includes increased energy use, expansion and growth,) the concept of productivity for the part or whole is found. This also points to productivity of itself being an intrinsic universe value interest.)
- Awareness/consciousness, (which starts with sensing awareness of the most local physical environment, then expanding to self-awareness (consciousness of self,) then expands to awareness of others things or selves, which then also possibly expands to awareness of more and more of the physical planet and Universe as systems, which eventually expands toward awareness of the great mystery of the universe's origin --- Ultimate Reality [what some of a a spiritual nature might even call God awareness,]) which then creates increasing,
- Learning and intelligence, which then creates increasing,
- Self-organization, autopoiesis, (for more on self organization principles, click here. (Self-organization includes self-discipline and self-responsibility.)
- Creative adaptability/evolability and of which all of the above is always based upon the evolutionary center hub of increasing
- ENERGY EXCHANGE that comes from productivity and that is appropriate (fair) for the establishment of sustainable and dynamic energy balances, reserves and unions. (evolution appears to love to establish zones of relative dynamic stability using balanced (fair,) energy exchange (as a type of spinning gyroscope,) to support members of the paring, relationship or union.) which then births a increased,
- Full-consequence capture, full accountability,(which requires expanding levels of full transparency for all parts of a whole and the wholes themselves. In one way or another, evolution eventually and invariably always enforces increasing levels of consequence capture upon any parts or wholes that do not learn, adapt "cooperate," fairly exchange energy and progressively evolve. High and expanding levels of transparency and accountability are critical to enacting full consequence capture because the powerful evolutionary self-interests of either the individual parts or the self-interests of wholes [groupings/unions,] when hidden or not accounted for will always take over and lessen the essential optimal balance and tension between the self-interests of the individual and the self-interests of the whole group or union. Which in some parts and unions within the universe eventually then emerges,
- Cooperative union building, also continually building toward new, larger and more sustainable dynamic fair energy exchanging unions of increasing environmental control and evolvability (where the tensional self-interests of the parts have been effectively managed and balanced with the tensional self interests of the whole. This is done by the evolved management capabilities within the cooperative whole to align and to balance the overall health, well being and self-interests of the full union with the value interests of the Universe itself) and --- where these unions also create and maintain adequate reserves for their own dynamic survival, which when approaching ideal facilitates and enhances,
- Optimal Creative freedom/choice, self-responsibility and self-discipline for parts in unions, and the
- Optimal transparency, integration, harmonization and ordering of parts within unions and within unions themselves --- and in the process of the preceding is created increasing,
- Robustness, redundancies and reserves of both the parts and the various unions unions to insure against rare, very large-impact negative consequences from future uncertainties and "black swans." (Black swans are unpredictable events with huge or exponential negative or positive consequences and impacts.)
- Expanding control over the environment for individuals and cooperative unions (parts and wholes that also are in harmony with the principles of universe evolution,) then a long long time into the evolutionary future,
- A new evolution-created "self/union-aware" super-union of all Universe parts, wholes and sub-unions comes into being and, this
- Potential predicted super-union evolves toward a creative transcendence of the universe itself as both parts and the whole itself. A time in evolution when all of the above universe "value-interest" possibilities for releasing, increasing, improving, developing or transcending experience and relationship (sharing,) have been fully exhausted. The Universe at that moment could be said to then have completed a cycle of the Universe’s own realization of potential having achieved full creative manifestation/distribution, development, realization of all possible inherent "value interest" potentials up to and including transcendence.
- If transcendence in either a part, a whole or the whole of the universe occurs, then the cycle of developmental steps or levels above may restart in whole or part with the new emergence or creativity. If transcendence did not occur for any reason, (which also includes, failed experiments, retrogressions, collapses and extinctions,) then waste nothing of that which has reached the limits of its existence, growth or potential release cycle --- recycle back all resources and parts back to evolution to be used in new creativity. (Collapse is sometimes necessary and good for parts or a whole that steadfastly fail to learn and adapt to the limits of their ecosystem. Collapse often creates a new space needed and the eventual regeneration of a resource depleted space for new evolutionary experiments or species.)
The above Universe core "value-interests" ARE also known as evolution’s progressive directionality as well as the universe's “goods" (in classical philosophic terms,) or as a statement of how the universe optimizes its own wellbeing. They can and should be viewed collectively as a full evolutionary cycle where the last step restarts up again in a new way at the first step on the next cycle or they can be viewed collectively as an expanding spiral where the last step eventually returns to the area of the first step but in a new and more expansive way. But, no matter how you view them they (and the Universe Principles below derived from them,) consist of a full and whole system for the successful ongoing creative evolution of sustainable and thriving parts and wholes in the universe. Some individuals consider that the universe's progressive evolutionary directionality to be a highly functional, detailed and objective description of the most probable meaning of life.
They are also the universe's most probable directional mega-trends for the future. This is because they have proven themselves to be the core, most often repeated mega trends of evolution’s past 13.7 billion years in spite of all manner of the universe's inherent developmental uncertainties, spontaneities, retrogressions and extinctions. The universe’s main reoccurring value interests (above,) as found within its deepest key repeating patterns are sometimes called the core progressive directionality of the universe or the evolutionary impulse. Sometimes these universe value interests are even called the goals of physical universe's evolution.
"When you understand the meta-principles of progressive evolution you will also understand the universe's "best practices" and its core "operating system." Lawrence Wollersheim
The Universe Principles of Right Action for Creating a Just Civilization and a Meaningful and Sustainable Prosperity for All
“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
An additional and important way to think about and see the following universe action principles is to see them as the boundaries and formulas of individual and collective justice in an evolutionary system, particularly as it relates to energy justice. If you also see these principles collectively as the minimal operational rules and evolutionary "operating system" for creating, maintaining and sharing energy fairly and reciprocally that then can be used to establish dynamic equilibriums (stable unions good for both individuals and groups,) you would also have a practical perspective on how to use them to establish either the foundational or essential ongoing energy justice systems always needed so any human system can become more sustainable and thrive for more of its members.
"The modern scientific principles of evolution can be used in practical ways to dramatically improve the success of our daily lives and much more. These essential principles of universe scale evolution are also able to better guide and improve today's economics, political landscape and even improve today's religions and deteriorating climate conditions." Lawrence Wollersheim
You will see the full cycle of energy in the universe as it manifests in successful, sustainable and thriving systems. Every aspect of the full cycle of energy from creation though transformation and transmutation is covered, even how to increase energy efficiency, energy sharing or energy reserves. To help you more easily see the energy management relationships of each principle you will find a short [bracketed statement] describing how this principle works within the full cycle of the motions of energy after each principle.
The Universe Principles of Right Action are to Exhaust all Potentials and Possibilities to:
- Increase Creative Experimentation: Aligned with the universe's core value interests (see above list,) create lots of small, low-risk experiments to discover new beneficial adaptations or to create positive "accidents." Tinker these experiments into higher levels of learning or success. (Humans are far better at tinkering than knowing.) Be particularly watchful for positive "accidents” and serendipity when they do occur. Aggressively pursue and utilize these positive accidents and serendipities as well as real opportunities!.These three things are truly rare in experimenters and potentially far more beneficial than generally understood in producing positive results and positive "black swans.” (Black swans are unpredictable events with consequences of huge or exponential impacts.) [This principle improves energy creation for later sharing by finding new sources for energy exchange.]
- Increase Both Present and Past Awareness and Consciousness of Feedback: Gather current knowledge and life-adjustment essential feedback through present awareness and consciousness of self, others and the physical Universe. Also, gather and be aware of past historic knowledge on self, others and particularly the Universe to learn life’s guiding principles and to develop exchangeable life skills and knowledge. (Studying the history of things is past awareness (past consciousness,) and it is an essential and highly useful compliment to present awareness in most, but not all situations of life. Various meditation practices are tangible ways to increase your ability to be aware and conscious of present moment feedback. Developing listening skills is another great way to increase your awareness of the feedback from others. ) [This principle refines the energy creation and maintenance for later sharing.]
- Increase Learning from Current and Past Feedback to Optimize Your Creative Adaptability and the "Tinkering" of One's Experiments into Greater Success: Rapidly learn from all accurate correctional feedback that you receive from your life experiments then use that new information to adapt. If you cannot adapt to it, change the environment wherever possible and appropriate. In order to optimally advance individual and group learning and adaptability to one's improve experimentation success it is also essential to teach future prediction and future modeling skills using everything from one's own intelligence to super-computers. (Doing experimentation with future modeling computer simulations allows one to experiment and tinker at a fraction of the normal cost and without the dangerous or costly mistakes of real experiments. Experiment, learn adapt is a core cycle of evolution. [This principle further refines energy creation efficiency for later sharing.]
- Increase the Quanity and Quality of Fair Exchange transactions based Upon Abundant, Sustainable Personal and Group Productivity: Abundantly increase the fair exchange of sustainable, quality and meritorious individual and group productivity (of real product or service value,) with other individuals and groups and then enjoy the earned pleasures and rewards of those productivity real value exchanges. (Every physically and mentally sound adult needs to be in an abundantly productive (producing more energy then they use) and in sustainable fair exchange with others, groups and/or the environment. Establish fair exchange sustainability through the justice of eliminating all forms of individual or group freeloading, “gaming the system" and non fair-exchange resource and energy theft.) Productivity inherently implies energy use and output (effort.) Abundant and sustainable productivity is one of the Universe meta-principles because of the reality of the Second Law of Thermodynamics known as entropy. Because all natural systems require additional energy (human effort is energy too,) to sustain or reproduce themselves and/or create new order (in the forms of products or services, life or creating a dynamic equilibrium,) to counter the effects of entropy --- abundant and sustainable productivity using continuous and in many cases increasing energy and effort is a fundamental inescapable reality of life. (Please note that both exchange and productivity can be of both an economic or non-economic nature. There are many noneconomic products and services that contribute to the wellbeing and sustainability of the grouping, community or nation.) Fair exchange also is one of the most essential ingredients in group cooperation building. Group cooperation building depends heavily on trust which comes and is expanded by reciprocal fair exchange! [This core Universe Principle is all about energy exchange reciprocation (fairness,) and increasing energy creation sources within a whole or group to counter and overcome the continual effect of energy entropy. This principle means that everyone who is not a child, sick, elderly, disabled mentally or physically or injured should be productive and produce more energy than they use because of entropy and the need for individual and group reserves (discussed in another Universe Principle farther down this list.)]
- Increase Individual Creative Freedom within Wise Boundaries: Improve self-organization, self discipline and self responsibility to increase freedom and wise choice in self and in one's groups in a way that self-interests, group interests and Universe value-interests are aligned and balanced! An additional aspect of this principle and of the principle of building more cooperative groups and communities (a bit farther down this page,) is to always create and promote as much personal freedom for the group's or communities' individual members as is possible up to the point where the exercise of the individual freedom of that group or community member seriously debilitates or destroys the overall wellbeing and sustainability of the union threatening the existence and essential functions of the group itself. [This principle demonstrates the practical energy creation or maintenance truth that individuals parts within a system and whole are ultimately better at energy creation and energy management when given the highest possible amounts of local freedom and autonomy.]
- Increase Full Consequence Capture: Insure timely full consequence capture for ALL individuals or groups that caused a particular consequence. Do it through appropriate transparency, truth sharing, co-responsible accountability and where applicable triple bottom line full-cycle accounting. The full consequence capture principle is critically important in order to insure community fair exchange, the fairness of justice and to capture ALL individual and group learning potentials, effective correction-motivating stress feedback or, success-enhancing positive reinforcement feedback in the fastest and most efficient way. (Insuring full consequence capture along with its essential justice partner of fair exchange are two of the most basic, powerful and evolution-proven ways to create the minimal justice necessary to maintain the essential cooperation building trust and wellbeing in any individual or group. Full consequence capture is also another effective way to prevent freeloading, “gaming the system" and non fair-exchange, nonreciprocal energy and resource theft, which inevitably first weakens then destroys group trust and reciprocality, which then destroys the sustainability and thrivability groups and unions.) A critical element of both fair exchange and the full consequence capture reciprocality principles is that of scaling the positive (reward) and negative (punishment) consequences. In a healthy sustainable system an individual or group should always receive the appropriate and proportionally increasing rewards of their productivity that demonstrates higher levels of intelligent effort, merit and quality of results. The same is true of scaling appropriate and proportional penalties. High and expanding levels of transparency and accountability are critical to enacting full consequence capture because the powerful evolutionary self-interests of either the individual parts or the self-interests of wholes [groupings/unions,] when hidden or not accounted for will always take over and lessen the essential optimal balance and tension between the self-interests of the individual and the self-interests of the whole group or union. (In the new Universe Manifesto ebook soon to be released more will be said about what determines appropriate levels of positive and negative consequence capture in sustainable natural systems.) [This principle is also about energy exchange reciprocation (fairness,) multiplying energy creation sources within a whole or group through energy rewards and lessening energy depletion sources within a group though energy losses. This critical principle helps to maintain energy productivity and fairness within the whole system or group.]
- Increase Wise Cooperation: In spite of what we have heard about survival of the most fit evolution actually favors the survival of the most wisely cooperative. Wise cooperation occurs in conditions of general fairness, trust and reciprocality. Therefore insure group fairness, trust and reciprocality and then wisely COOPERATE. Wise cooperation also implies using all of the Universe Principles as a whole system of principled guidance to know when and how to cooperate or how to know when not to cooperate until the necessary trust, fair exchange, reciprocality and other conditions for wise cooperation have been established. [The principle of wise cooperation is partially about preserving energy reciprocation and energy conservation (so you do not violate the second law of thermodynamics,) while working more importantly towards managing balancing and aligning the tensional self-interests of the parts of the whole to the overall health and well being of the whole union as well as to the value interests of the Universe. This then creates greater and wiser energy sharing in scale, frequency or quality. A way to think about unwise cooperation is that it is when --- you or your group does worse, gets less resources to reproduce or sustain itself while another individual or group does better or gets more resources to reproduce or sustain itself. Wise cooperation is always solidly grounded in fair exchange and aligned and managed self-interests.
- Expand Group/Union Building: Build and/or replicate both more and larger unions and mini-cultures where self interests, group/union interests and Universe value-interests are mutually aligned in a win/win/win scenario. When enough groups create enough unions and mini-cultures that follow these universe principles of sustainability these principles will eventually move into a larger union and permeate and be taken on by the macro-culture. Imitate a whole systems understanding of universe evolution at every opportunity, which appears to be moving toward creating a super-union of all universe parts, wholes and sub-unions by creating more wise unions. [The principle of creating more or larger unions (through wise cooperation,) is about working towards creating greater energy sharing in scale, frequency or quality. Better energy sharing creates stronger more sustainable groups and unions.]
- Increase Group/Community/Union Transparency, Integration Harmony and Order: Improve the transparency, integration, harmony and dynamic flexible order in one’s groups and communities that is also universe value-interest aligned and balanced. [This principle improves the efficiency of energy creation and sharing for and among the parts of a group/union. Better energy sharing creates stronger more sustainable groups and unions.]
- Increase the Realization of All Individual, Group and Union Creative Developmental Potentials: Aligned with universe's value interests (above), work actively both as individuals and as groups or communities toward realizing ALL individual unrealized potentials and the unrealized potentials of your groups or communities to learn, adapt and develop and, where possible, to transcend the current conditions and challenges! Development of individual and group unrealized potential here means the full spectrum of possible development as expressed in achieving fulfillment potentials such as expressed basically in Maslow’s Needs Hierarchy or more complexly in Kegan's model of psychological development or Kohlberg's stages of moral development. [This principle helps to realize the full energy creation efficiency of the individuals parts or members of a group or union.]
- Increase Appropriate Individual and Group Abundance, Reserves and Resilience: Build robustness, redundancies and adequate reserves into both individual parts and all groups and unions to build adequate resilience and the necessary reserve abundance to insure against rare, very large-impact negative consequences and unpredictable emergencies caused by inherent system uncertainties and “negative black swans.” This reserve abundance building also provides the resources for wise and appropriate energy investment or charity and group support for illness or physical or mental incapacitation or other situations where a member of the group is unable to produce more energy than they use, such as in the case of growing children, the retired or diminished capacity elderly or those injured in work or defending the nation. (Please note another level of resilient robustness can also be achieved by creating distributed and decentralized resources, authority and adaptability at local node levels of all kinds of networks. Appropriate resilient abundance is not a state where some parts and unions have obtained (or take,) such excessive amounts of energy and resources or, accumulate such excessive reserves by either productive or non fair exchange means, that other productive and/or inter-dependent essential parts of the groupings or unions in the universe's life systems are unable to obtain adequate, fair and appropriate energy and resource exchange for their productivity, reproductivity and sustainability.) [This principle is about energy storage and energy abundance availability --- namely to ALWAYS have enough energy reserves available to maintain individual or group resilience and energy use requirements when either an unexpected energy loss occurs (a crisis, emergency, etc.,) or when temporarily or permanently nonproductive members of the group require additional energy support. In addition to the Second Law of Thermodynamics known as entropy it also is necessary to have these reserves because of the additional lessening effects the law of diminishing returns, which will eventually always bring about collapse in systems without new energy sources or emergency back up reserves.]
- Increase Individual and Group Evolvability to Expand and Replicate Sustainable Control of the Environment and to Co-Evolve a Better Shared Future: Improve one's self and one's group's evolvability by teaching, knowing and using the Universe's value-interest aligned principles. Use these evolution principles of sustainability to intentionally create the education, governance and management systems to teach others, to replicate and create new and larger more successful universe principle based mini-cultures and groups/unions and to replicate and expand the mini-cultures of this Universe Evolutionary Worldview and sustainable prosperity movement into becoming the macro-culture. Also use them in all areas of life to directly expand your and your group's sustainable environmental control. (Improving individual and group evolvability and environmental control particularly includes creating future awareness and adaptable intelligence by using rational/analytical thinking, systems thinking and new dialectical thinking future modeling and risk analysis technologies for wise evolution aligned future planning and model testing.) [This is another principle that is about improving the efficiency of individual and group energy creation and energy management by understanding the universe's best practices for energy creation and management within parts and wholes (individuals and groupings.)]
- Increase Individual and Group Avoidance of Unnecessary Out-of-Evolutionary Alignment Breakdowns: Keep vividly in mind that failure to align oneself, one's groups, businesses and nations with the core universe patterns, value interests, principles and directionality of progressive evolution (as found above and within the Universe Principles of Sustainability when applied in an integrated whole systems manner,) results in the other great meta-pattern and meta-process of progressive evolution to take over. This hub process, hub pattern and universe meta-principle of sustainability is: the universe in an act of destructive creation breaking down and recycling any and all continually non-learning, non-adaptive and/or non "cooperating" parts or wholes to be recycled and reused later in other evolutionary experiments or situations. Evolution wastes nothing and unfailingly does this breakdown and recycling of nonaligned and non-adaptive parts or wholes in an act of creative destruction to once again attempt to forward the progressive directionality and value interests of evolution by reusing and recycling the resources of failed, no longer needed or relevant evolutionary experiments. From its original creativity to its ending destructive creativity qualities in the breakdown and recycling of non-learning, non-adaptive and/or non-cooperating parts and wholes the Universe Principles of Sustainability create a full creative cycle and creative spiral containing everything essential to keep the directional; processes of evolution progressing. [This principle is all about avoiding unnecessary energy loss and the understanding that any energy losses ultimately will be reused and recycled.]
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 actions that help us do it! When we simply live sustainable lifestyles and livelihoods applying the Universe Evolutionary Principles and we enact laws that reflect the application of the Universe Evolutionary Principles when applied to groups, corporations and nations we will attain a just civilization and a meaningful and sustainable prosperity for all.
If any individual, group, nation, business or whole union of any kind fails to apply, align with and forward the Universe Principles of Sustainability as a whole and integrated system in a balanced way, they (and their forms of captured energy,) will eventually be broken down and recycled (distributed elsewhere for new evolutionary experiments.)
(Please note: In addition to their secular applications the right actions are also the basis of the ethical code and the basic commandments of Religion 2.0 and Evolution Spirituality.)
The Other Universe Principles of Sustainability, Success and Right Mind and Right Attitude for Creating a Just Civilization and a Meaningful and Sustainable Prosperity for All
One uses the Universe Principles of Right Action in wise and balance application with the Universe Principles of Right Mind and Right Attitude. To see the companion Universe Principles of Right Mind and Right Attitude, click here!
How to Use the Universe Evolutionary Principles of Sustainability:
"The application of the evolutionary science derived Universe Evolutionary Principles will create a just civilization, a sustainable prosperity and a meaning and purpose filled life for all. When applied wisely, they create the optimization and simultaneous maximization of both individual and collective well being. They are the most basic rules of evolution's core "operating system."" Lawrence Wollersheim
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, biased or 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.
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 our 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 action principles in a balanced way. Right application attitude and conditions equals right results. This is very important to remember as you can do the correct thing with the wrong or unbalanced attitude and the correct thing will produce wrong results. Always apply the universe actions from and using the perspective of the universe attitudes!
What the New Universe Evolutionary Principles of Sustainability will do for Your Life!
When you wisely apply a balance of all of the universe’s 13.7 billion year-old science and time-proven universe-scale principles for sustainably evolving and thriving life in the universe as found within the action and attitude guiding Universe Evolutionary Principles these principles:
will convey to your life and groups the ultimate, "big story,” universe-scale perspective along with the colossal problem-solving and quality-of-life improving advantages that comes from holding the all-of-life core conditioning wisdom from the biggest possible of all perspectives,
will show you how to align with and "surf" the unstoppable and ever flowing "empowered directional wave" of evolutionary life itself --- the manifesting directionality of the physical universe’s natural progressive evolution principles and indirectly if you are spiritually inclined, with the creative impulse of Ultimate Reality itself.
will provide a new, evolutionary time-proven, practical and step-by-step principle-aligned map and tool for managing your daily life challenges,
will help you realize your big, long-term personal goals in dramatically more effective, sustainable and meaningful ways.
will provide a new, evolutionary time-proven, practical and step-by-step principle-aligned map and tool for collectively managing our many potentially life-ending planetary challenges. On a planetary level the evolutionary Universe Principles of Sustainability are the most practical global steps to realizing the benefits implied by the following:
“The planetary consciousness which has created our current planetary problems is not the consciousness that will solve them. To effectively resolve our most serious planetary challenges such as human caused catastrophic climate destabilization it will require a new and larger universe consciousness and its emerging new Universe Evolutionary Worldview.” by Lawrence Wollersheim (An essential new universe evolutionary consciousness and new universe evolutionary worldview is embodied and present in the daily practice of the Universe Principles of Sustainability.)
The Universe Principles and Our Key Human Virtues
In one way or another the Universe Principles of Sustainability above (an essential part of the Universe Evolutionary worldview) and the value interests of progressive evolution (both derived exclusively from science,) also embrace most all of the core and key human virtues in one way or another. Once you are familiar with these science grounded principles value interests of the evolutionary universe you can go to our human virtues master list and also try to connect up each human virtue listed with one of more of the 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 that just our spiritual traditions.
1.) Looking at the Universe Evolutionary Principles of Sustainability as a whole and particularly through their key words 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 super natural sources. Click here to see how we have woven the Universe Evolutionary Principles of Sustainability into our code of conduct and ethics for living.
* 2.) 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.
3.) Learning and living the Universe Principles of Sustainability in both action and attitudinal forms is also the Level 3 practices of Evolution Spirituality.
4.) Each of the Universe Evolutionary Principles taken collectively also suggests all of the important educational core curriculum that Universe Evolutionaries and universe citizens should pursue and that integral, evolutionary, environmental and sustainability organizations should be teaching to create effective and complete curriculums.
5.) The Universe has demonstrated adaptive patterns that can use and incorporate unforeseen spontaneities to eventually also forward its core value-interests.
6.) 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 ultimate universe scale?
7.) 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.
We strongly suggest that you print them out 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 live has improved hugely since I have begun practicing them and, it has been far more than worth all of that conscious effort.
These principles apply equally to individuals or groups of any size and they also embody the practical core of a natural and evolutionary spirituality of life and what we call Evolution Spirituality. I am proposing that this statement of the universal principles of life are the universe science-based most common core values and fundamental ethical behavioral guidelines that should be commonly adopted by all conscious evolutionaries, sustainability advocates, environmentalists, cultural creatives, integral post moderns and universe-conscious universe citizens as both ideals and standards for our behavior and interactions as well as for defining a basic and common evolutionary Universe education and skill set. Practicing ALL of these principles in balance and not just practicing one or two of them is what I firmly believe that it means to actually be or become a complete integral, universe evolutionary and life sustainability and thrivability advocate. If you have suggestions or criticisms, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Principles” in the subject line. Sincerely,
10/9/12 This is 105 th version, but first public version of the Universe Principles of Sustainability since work began on them in 2007.
