1.) The principle of Progressive Evolution is derived in substantive part from evolutionary science.
2.) 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.
3.) 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.
4.) 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 and universal evolutionary 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
5.) Looking at the Universe 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 Principles of Sustainability into our code of conduct and ethics for living.
6.) 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.
7.) The Universe has demonstrated adaptive patterns that can use and incorporate unforeseen spontaneities to eventually also forward its core value-interests.
8.) 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?
9.) 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.
10.) 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.
11.) 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, Religion 2.0.
12.) Each of the Universe Principles taken collectively also suggests all of the important educational core curriculum 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.
13.) 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.
14.) 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 live 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.)
15.) If you have suggestions or criticisms, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Principles” in the subject line. Sincerely,
16.) This is 107 th version version of the Universe Principles of Sustainability since work began on them in 2007. This version was updated on 3.30.21.
