"[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 of Sustainability (the UP's) are none other than the time-proven core meta-principles of the universe's 13.7 billion years of progressive evolution. (If you have not read about progressive evolution, and if you are the kind of person who absolutely needs to know "how" and "why" some thing has come about or why it's science is valid, please read this progressive evolution document before reading the rest of this Right Actions online booklet.)
When applied as a whole and integrated system, the Universe Principles of Sustainability ([the UP's] in both of it's Right Actions and Right Attitude 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. (The Universe Principles Right Attitudes section and list will be linked to later in this online booklet.)
They are the energy, chemistry and biological secrets of life that are directly applicable to individuals, groups and cultures.
The are the rules of evolution's most basic "operating system" used by individuals 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 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 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 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 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
Why The Universe Principles are Important:
"Right understanding of the reality of evolution in the universe IS what ultimately matters in making right decisions and taking right actions." Lawrence Wollersheim
The Universe Principles of right action listed in the following pages of this online booklet 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 processes. In the Universe 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 Principles and why the universe’s value interests are in reality so much more dominant and powerful than your self-interests 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 is unstoppable and ultimately 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, as a universe sub-system, you 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
Living by the 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.
(Important Note: Always apply the Universe Principles of Right Action using the balancing "attitude" perspectives of the Universe Principles of Right Attitude! (At the end of this online booklet you will find a link to these "sister" Right Attitudes.)
