The Failures of Morality
Written by Jeremy Hammond on Wednesday, 10/2/2002
Many people have ideas about how the world works, or how it was created, or where it's going, or why things happen. We all have the right to form our own ideas about the nature of the world, but we can't let this thoughts obscure what is actually happening.
The universe is composed of objects and events(space and time). At any given second, objects in the universe are positioned in certain places. The movement of objects during a period of time represents events. At the very rawest, lowest level, things happen in this universe. The universe has no consideration of right and wrong about these things, they just happen. What comes from that is merely our own individual interpretations of these events.
This is the physical layer of the universe. It can be measured, it can be analyzed, and scientific conclusions can be drawn from it. However, nothing from the physical layer gives any sort of WHY things happen. Why things turn out certain ways, why certain things happen. Coincidences, deja-vu, randomness, patterns.
Enter the quantum layer. The quantum layer addresses WHY things happen, and this can hardly be 'proven' as evidence can only derive from the physical layer. The physical layer only describes WHAT happened, not what outside elements contributed to the complex series of events that led to what happened. And this layer is subjective to each individual person: there is no objective reality in the quantum sense. We all interpret things that happened in different ways. We all create our own universe.
Everyone has ideas about how the quantum layer works. However, too many people get so deeply involved that they lose sight of what is actually happening. When someone starts to wholeheartedly believe that their reality is the 'true' one, that's when the restriction, the oppression, the murder, begins. Too much blood has been shed quarreling over belief.
You, YOU YOURSELF, create the world you want to live in. You can manipulate the way you interpret things. You can think of things in certain ways, but just remember that the physical reality it is only the shifting and manipulation of objects over time. So form whatever ideas you want to form. Just remember that those thoughts are local to you, but physical things affect other people.
