The Laws of Metaphysics

Previous: Objective View of God
Next: Mindfulness Approach

Here are the laws of metaphysics that I have been fortunate enough to pry them apart from knowledge already available.

Law # 1 – The fundamental principle of this universe is a natural precipitation of order out of chaos. This order manifests as the universe.

NOTE: The Law # 1 is looked upon as “God” in most religions. With the knowledge of physics that we now have, we may state:

Corollary # 1a – The nature of chaos is space. The property of space is awareness.

Corollary # 1b – The order precipitates as electromagnetic patterns. The property of patterns is consciousness.

Corollary # 1c – This precipitaion of order is irreversible.

Law # 2 – The order precipitates as a basic pattern, which then forms increasingly complex patterns.

Note: The Law # 2 is how evolution starts. We may further state:

Corollary # 2a – The electromagnetic patterns are  described by a spectrum of frequencies. At the lower end of this spectrum are radio waves, and at the higher end are gamma rays.

Corollary # 2b – Below radio waves is space, and above gamma rays is matter. In between there are increasing frequencies that have properties of feelings, perceptions, emotions and sensations.

Corollary # 2c – The electromagnetic patterns condense as matter at high frequencies.

Law # 3 – A pattern is made up of movement. Underlying the movement there is nothing motionless. Anything motionless is relative only. 

NOTE: Everything in this universe is changing whether rapidly or very slowly. There is nothing that is absolutely permanent.

Corollary # 3a – The chaos, of course, is unsettled and every bit impermanent. Any settling starts in the form of precipitating patterns.

Corollary # 3b – Original patterns are very light and ephemeral. Only as they evolve toward greater complexity that they tend to become more permanent.

Corollary # 3c – Thus the universe does not start out with anything eternal.

Law # 4 – Patterns mix, interfere, resonate, condense and generate new patterns. Thus there is evolution.

Corollary # 4a – Frequencies in gamma region generate electrons. Still higher frequencies collapse into nucleons that have property of mass. Nucleons in a nucleus surrounded by electrons form a pattern called atoms.

Corollary # 4b –  The atoms represents basic identities that are arranged in a periodic table of lighter to heavier atoms.

Corollary # 4c – Atoms combine to form molecules from simple to very complex. Each of these molecules has an identity with unique properties.

Law # 5 – Basic patterns are continuous but have discrete frequencies. These patterns evolve into discrete solid forms. But underlying all discrete forms there is a basic continuity.

Corollary # 5a – The discrete property of forms evolves from frequencies in the form of resonances, particles, groups of particles and discrete contexts of different types.

Corollary # 5b – All discrete parts of the universe are connected at some basic level.

Law # 6 – Patterns evolve gradually. They are stable and orderly only when they maintain continuity, harmony and consistency at all levels.

Corollary # 6a – Complex molecules like RNA and DNA have enough electrons around the many nuclei to form circuits for molecular computers.

Corollary # 6b – The naturally programmed sequence of motions in these molecules maintain continuity, harmony and consistency. Thus comes about life.

Corollary # 6c – The programmed motions are triggered by appropriate conditions in the environment. Thus there is perception.

Corollary # 6d – All motions are connected through the conditions in the environment. Thus, there is universal continuity, harmony and consistency.

Corollary # 6e – Motion together with perception appears as waves of feelings, sensations and emotions.

Corollary # 6f – Thinking evolves from reactions among chemicals to plant life, animal life and finally to responses determined by associations perceived by human life. Thus there is logical thinking.

Law # 7 – When the continuity, harmony and consistency of natural evolution is resisted there comes about tension and inflexibility.

Corollary # 7a – Human actions are determined by logical thinking. When human thinking is restricted to narrow contexts the resulting actions interfere with universal continuity, harmony and consistency. Such actions are called ‘karma’.

Corollary # 7b – Such actions generate tensions and they lead to inflexibility in thinking.  This outcome is called ‘dukkha’. Much of human reality consists of ‘dukkha’.

Corollary # 7c – The efforts to deal with ‘dukkha’  generate further tensions and inflexibilities. There is anxiety and craving underlying such efforts. This is called ‘thirst’.

Corollary # 7d – This ‘thirst’ comes about as a reaction to the presence of ‘dukkha’. It dominates human thinking and generates further ‘karma’.

Corollary # 7e – The way out is human thinking in universal context, away from thinking in narrow context of “self”.

Law # 8 – Restoration of the flexibility of natural evolution is achieved by letting the tension unwind freely in a universal context.

Corollary # 8a – Freedom comes from restraining ‘thirst’ and letting ‘dukkha’ unwind freely in a universal context until all ‘karma’ is released. This is ‘nirvana’.

Corollary # 8b – One then returns to the continuity, harmony, consistency and flexibility of the natural evolution.

Law # 9 – Natural evolution started by trial and error. This process gradually became sophisticated and evolved to scientific method among humans.

Corollary # 9a – The scientific method takes into account the universal context. This universal context is the basis of objectivity. Any lesser context leads to subjectivity and error.

Corollary # 9b – Human inventiveness becomes part of the natural evolution when it is applied in a universal context.

Law # 10 – The scientific view is universal and, therefore, objective. A human-centric view is less than  universal and, therefore, subjective and prone to error.

Corollary # 10a – A human-centric views, such as, “earth is at the center of the universe,” is subjective and erroneous.

Corollary # 10b – Most religious knowledge has been put forth from a human-centric view, and therefore it is subjective and has led to erroneous behavior.

Corollary # 10c – The scientific method currently limits itself to physics only. It may be extended to metaphysics in the form of mindfulness.

Corollary # 10d – Religious knowledge expressed from an objective viewpoint of mindfulness may lead to far more useful behavior.

Corollary # 10e – The religious concept of “higher power of God” may be expressed through mindfulness in terms of fundamental principles yet to be discovered. The Law # 1 above is an attempt in that direction.

Law # 11 – The next stage of evolution from present human condition seems to depend upon the attainment of the universal objectivity of mindfulness.

Corollary # 11a – According to Buddhism, the root of all evil is ignorance and false views. The ultimate true view is the objective view. The endeavor in Buddhism is the attainment of universal objectivity through the practice of mindfulness.

Corollary # 11b – All religions should be respected and understood from an objective viewpoint. This helps acquire an independent understanding of truth.

Corollary # 11c – Objective viewpoint is developed by viewing everything in a universal context and removing all discontinuities, disharmonies and inconsistencies in one’s life through observations and thought experiments.

Corollary # 11d – True knowledge is not the inflexibilities one carries around in one’s head as memory. True knowledge is continuous observation from an objective viewpoint.

    The following idea seems to fit in a way if the life force is looked upon as the evolutionary force.

    Life in itself is enough – it needs no goals.
    That’s why there is this urge, this desire,
    this tremendous lust to live and to live forever.

    It has nothing to do with you;
    it is your very life.
    This is not being taught to you;
    you are born with this desire.
    This desire is your gift from Existence Itself.

    If you listen to this desire and if you stop listening to all kinds of religious nonsense,
    you will be a New Man, really alive.

    Yes, Life has a tremendous power, and it wants to expand.
    It wants to live as intensely and totally as possible.
    And this is not going to happen some other day.
    If it is going to happen, it can happen only Now:
    It is Now! or never.

    -Rajneesh

    Law # 1 of Metaphysics – The fundamental principle of this universe is a natural precipitation of order out of chaos. This order manifests as the universe.

    The above law is looked upon as “God” in most religions.

    The Law #1 actually supports the principle of entropy, which is all about settling down to the most balanced state.

    This law sets the tone for the whole universe. It forms the basis of mindfulness. And it explains the Law of Karma.

    Law # 2 of Metaphysics – The order precipitates as a basic pattern, which then forms increasingly complex patterns.

    This is how evolution starts. God evolves!

    Law # 3 of Metaphysics – A pattern is made up of movement. Underlying the movement there is nothing motionless. Anything motionless is relative only.

    There is nothing that is absolutely permanent. Everything in this universe is changing whether rapidly or very slowly.

    The “TV snow” of Chris Thompson is the chaos from which patterns emerge per Law # 1.
