Morality:  Objective, Subjective, or somewhere in between?

I think morals are the symptom of a reaction towards social cohesion. A moral becomes object when many people align with the sensibilities it incite, but it always arise out of subjective interpretation.
Also, I think, that our inbound wisdom, sprung from the natural state - beyond subject/object mentality, which is undifferentiated from other creatures, is bound to a high level of sympathy. There is a bond of love, permeating the universe, that affects the course of action towards higher and higher states of unity. The beginning and end of a process stands in a fixed relationship, through Newtons Laws of Motion. But the concept of motion and the concept of space that motion permeates in are inseparable from each other. In so far as we see them as separate, you get the force of love which attracts by the release of energy through unitive motion, and the force of fear, which repels for the fear of loosing innate energy. The split which we call time, is an act of fear, which is the initiation of every cycle, but ultimately nothing other than love warped in upon itself to play a drama - just for kicks.

The physical laws of attraction and repulsion are Natural laws, without any moral implication. However when we apply those laws to humans, we may say that attraction = love and repulsion = fear/hate, which of necessity demand the development of a moral code.

Human conditioning arise from natural law, so in a way the universe is moral, or telic. I do not separate my being from the universe, neither do I project my inner faculties on top of outer objects. But the power of love can be seen in fusion power, lighting up the universe. It is from that power we rise, out of the darkness that unites us.

Depends on what pisses me off at the time.

These days I’m very pissed off at a lot of things, politically speaking.

Funny how if we call it politics it’s okay, but if you and I do some of the stuff the government or corporations do, it might be considered immoral…. like killing people.
