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 effect 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 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.
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 effect 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 dominate 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 effect the processes and results of "things" acting within the space field of the master universe. Those result 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, 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 nuetral seeking only to enact its inherent meta-principles or laws of 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 (autopoeisis,) is just one example of this native inherent creativity.
- inherent universe dynamism, continuous change, evolvability, process: (This equals 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 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 are 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 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 a 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 which dynamically adjusts where necessary the differentials, differences and conflicts between parts and wholes so that various essential evolutionary 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.) Which 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.
Click here to go to the success attitudes, Part 2 of the new Universe Principles of Sustainability, which embody an attitudinal form of the practical application of the life conditioning universe attributes listed above.
