Non-interference

People have the right to believe whatever they want, no matter how ludicrous it seems to us. The thing they don't have the right to do is interfere with the free will of another. That means not forcing anything on anyone who doesn't want it.


"The law of non-interference" is a simple law that is said to govern life in the higher spheres. No other law is needed. It covers all the sins we can commit against one another.

The moral person never interferes with the decision making process of another, forcing their hand. This is called "being respectful".

The denial of sentience and animal experimentation

There was incentive for humans to deny sentience to other creatures. "No sentience" meant we didn't have to care for them. Their well-being wasn't important, as there was "no-one home" to register suffering and so they could be treated like machines.

This gave birth to animal experimentation. A dark chapter in human history. Animals treated like machines to discover knowledge soaked in blood. Think Mengel, the Dr Death of the Nazi death camps. Same mindset. The denial of the reality of others, leading to atrocity and needless suffering.

Although we no longer deny sentience to our animal friends, we still often treat them with less than the consideration they deserve, as dependent on our actions as they are.

Nothing is proof of anything except the thing, itself.

That is, "what is" is proof of what is, not what was or what will be.

These are interpolations that can't be proven.

Only those with a history of assault or stealing should be in prison.

For everybody else a more tailored approach is in order.

For prison is cruel and unusual punishment, for animal or man, and few deserve it who receive it.

It should be saved for the cruelest of the human tribe.

Those who cannot be trusted to live peacefully in our world.

Socialised medicine and nature healers

Critics of drug-based medicine who tend to favour more natural approaches can have mixed feelings about socialised medicine. 

After all, their favourite medicines and healers don't tend to be covered by a drug-based care system.

So they are essentially contributing to a system they have little belief in.

Few doubt the value of modern emergency medicine but many have doubts about chronic care.

These things aren't reflected in current government health policy, which favours high-tech, big business driven medicine, with little support for more natural, low-tech approaches.

No room for MIND in materialism

There's no room for MIND in materialism. 

Everything is cause and effect, starting with the big bang. 

[Except for quantum physics]

Our brains are subject to the same laws, chemical and physical, as everything else in the universe that we perceive, and the MIND is just an apparent expression of this mechanistic process, with no meaning of it's own beyond the physical processes that birthed it.
It's like the music coming from a gramaphone- totally subject in its expression to the physical device that creates it.


MATERIALISM is the dominant philosophy of academia. The commonly perceived elite of human minds, relied upon to give an accurate picture of reality.
