Social theory

The fundamental basis for culture and society is universal law

triangular

The fundamental basis for the proper functioning of any community or society is universal law and the provision of sufficient opportunity for human creativity and social interaction. Human beings are social animals who require constant opportunities to develop their consciousness and creativity and to socially interact with one another because this is based on universal law. This is based on the following principle:

Human creativity and social interaction is the fundamental basis for cultural development. Cultural development is the motivating factor for social progress and the driving force of both human evolution and economic prosperity.

The Triangular Relationship

This theory is based on the life experience which is common to every human being which is alive today, has ever been born, and ever will be born at any point in the future. This life experience is largely determined by three major factors; our individual relationship with the universe and metaphysical, which also includes our individual relationship with humans as a species in the animal kingdom, our individual relationship with our environment, and our unique and individual relationship with ourselves.

Everything in this triangular relationship functions according to the common principles of universal law (explained in the Energy Spectrum) because everything is part of the collective of energy known as the universe.

Universe and the metaphysical.

We are all part of the universe and subject to the common principles, as is everything else in existence, of universal law. These principles, explained in the Energy Spectrum, are absolute, immutable and applicable equally to everything in existence.

Environmental factors

Another point in the relationship is our environment and all the environmental factors which influence our life and existence. This includes habitat, community, our family, friends, neighbours, the people we work with and everyone else we have contact with. This relates to our cultural awareness, our background, our childhood, our upbringing, and the amount of social conditioning and education we have experienced. Our environmental factors also heavily influence the nature and quality of our lives.

Individuality

Individuality also very heavily influences the nature and quality of our life experience because it is what gives us autonomy. Autonomy is what sustains life. A large part of our brain activity and thinking - over 90% - is unconscious thinking and devoted to autonomic life processes. These processes include such activities as breathing, digestion, our circulation system, things we don't normally think about.

But autonomic thinking is also closely related to self-awareness and learning so things such as walking, motor coordination, balancing, choices and even personal beliefs form part of our autonomic life processes and unconscious thinking. This includes our Life Path, the trajectory of emotional and cognitive development previous life experiences and ideas which are recorded permanently in memory, both implicit and recall.

Belief systems and attachments

Many people think of free will and freedom as being pretty much the same or similar and much of this is down to the beliefs imposed on them through social conditioning which they have acquired and through various belief systems which are generally religious or political in nature. These belief systems are all belief systems which are concerned with addressing social issues and the structuring or ordering of society or groups of humans whether it be in a family, community or society.

As a species human beings have evolved into the last surviving species of hominid ape, characterized by the use of tools, enlarged forebrain areas and desire for creative self-expression. Being the most socially variant species in the animal kingdom, belief systems and attachment to those belief systems is a feature of our evolution and for as long as we exist we will always be concerned with order and structure of our societies and communities because it is part of our relationship with our environment·

Being a social species a feeling of involvement and inclusion is one of the most powerful and persistent of human emotional needs.

Autonomy and free will

Many people confuse freedom and free will and think they are the same thing, and this is largely down to social conditioning and belief systems. The truth is that people generally have far less freedom and free will than they think they do.

This is directly as a result of the Triangular Relationship. The fundamental basis of any social structure is universal law because life is about the development of consciousness through evolution and our position relative to humankind and the species of humans and this is determined not by any social structure or government but by natural law. This is nothing new, it is centuries old, in fact you can replace the term 'universal law' with God to arrive at a different interpretation of this theory and the triangular relationship based on a religious belief.

What people have isn't so much free will but autonomy. Autonomy is fundamental to the ability to sustain life, it is self awareness. So much lies beyond our perception, more than 90% of our thinking is autonomous and unconscious, and everything we do think with that little bit of free will that we have, in our conscious thinking, has a permanent effect which directly impacts on our Life Path and autonomic life processes.

Consciousness in energy

Consciousness isn't something that exists within us, it exists in energy and is something we need to perceive through our senses and through our brains. Both morality and truth are tied to our ability to be able to perceive consciousness in energy and to be able to mirror with that energy to increase our level of consciousness so that we can function and live.

A definition of truth

Truth is our ability to accurately perceive energy which manifests itself as information. All information is energy expressed in a way which can be perceived by our senses and our brains, the brain is a quantum, electromagnetic organ which exists to be able to perceive, manipulate and transform energy so that we can function. Truth differs from belief in that it requires a shift in consciousness and an altered state of awareness and understanding to be able to perceive it. This differs from a belief which does not require any shift in consciousness. The shift in consciousness is of course a shift in our perception of consciousness.

Truth is perceived through integrity which requires constant mental exercise through examining, modifying, changing and when necessary discarding our beliefs.

Irrespective of whether we are thinking in physical or metaphysical terms universal law and its principle applies. When we eat too much of the same food and fail to take regular exercise we become obese and lose physical fitness and agility. Likewise if we become too attached to our personal beliefs and relying on them for our worldview and perception without examining or changing them we become ignorant and lose our powers of perception and cognitive functioning ability - critical for conscious thinking - so that we either cannot recognize truth or separate truth from falsehood.

Morality

Morality is the ability to determine right from wrong and to function in accordance with universal law. Universal law is all about action, reaction and interaction - which is how everything in the universe and in existence functions - and morality is the ability to choose right through one's choices and decisions and act upon them to be able to produce dramatic consequences.

From morality and the development of a moral compass and moral principles we develop empathy and the ability to relate to others and other living beings. Likewise the development of morality and empathy is essential for social interaction, our powers of perception and cognitive functioning ability.

People lacking in empathy become ignorant, unable to properly socially interact with others and also unable to form personal values. They also lose the sense of what being human and what life is all about.

Morality can be defined as being one of three states. Moral is the ability to choose right over wrong and bring about dramatic consequences rather than traumatic consequences. Amoral is the inability to choose right over wrong consistently through ignorance or not knowing and not understanding universal law. Immoral is the conscious choice of wrong over right which results in traumatic consequences.

Dramatic and traumatic consequences.

This is simple cause and effect. Each time energy or information is processed both creativity and interaction takes place. This means that every choice, every decision and every action, every thought, carries a consequence which can be either dramatic or traumatic. These consequences are absolute, immutable and consistent.

Dramatic consequences come from choosing right and result in a reduction of energy frequency and increased energy wavelength. This results in order, structure, balance, harmony, equality, reciprocity, freedom and increased consciousness.

Traumatic consequences come from not choosing right successfully or choosing wrong over right and result in an increase of energy frequency and shorter wavelengths. This results in chaos, disorder, obscurity, inequality, division, enslavement and less consciousness.

These are the principles of universal law and they govern the development of a culture and society as much as they govern everything else.

Understanding culture.

Culture is fundamentally conscious thinking ability which is shared between two or more people. It is shared awareness, understanding and the ability to interpret and infer accurately from any word, phrase, gesture, symbol, sign, or any other form of expression to arrive at a meaning, idea, belief or anything else which can be expressed.

Culture is what gives any aspect of language such as a word, phrase or gesture its meaning or significance and is an essential component of language which forms the basis for beliefs, ideas and which can elicit feelings and emotions. For example a poppy is a red flower which grows in a field, but it is also a part of British culture significant to soldiers killed in WWI in Flanders Field, and is thus an important symbol use to recognize the sacrifice servicemen play fighting in wars.

Culture exists on many different levels and it is developed through individual human creativity, conscious thinking, social interaction and communal activities. This activity increases perception, develops cognitive functioning ability, moral principles, integrity and results in inspiration. 

Developing creativity is the best possible form of mental exercise there is particularly when it is done with social interaction and so develops conscious thinking ability and the ability to perceive consciousness.

Consciousness is expansive, so the more you are able to perceive it, the more creative you become and you increase your conscious thinking and powers of perception.

Culture and cultural development is fundamental to the functioning of society because it creates opportunity and increases our ability to think consciously, interact with others, develop integrity, moral values, empathy and this promotes social progress, social cohesion, creates order and structure in society and can also advance economic prosperity.

Culture therefore promotes liberty, freedom and respect for human rights because people make use of culture to develop their triangular relationship and in so doing, are functioning according to the principles of universal law.

Human rights

Human rights are based on morality and a human right is the ability to consistently choose right over wrong and function in a manner which is consistent with universal law and Nature, causing no harm to any living being and no destruction to that which is naturally created.

Many people confuse human rights with privilege and entitlement, but the above definition of a human right is consistent. Human rights are based on morality and are exercised by choices, actions and consequences. Therefore a human right is an action which is exercised and requires both action on the part of the individual with full knowledge and understanding of the consequences of their choices and actions, and respect for the human rights of others.

Cultural development - the basis for a community or society

For any community or society to function properly there has to be a continuous effort made to develop culture through the provision of opportunities to people to develop creatively and interact socially with one another. There needs to be free access made available to everyone in a community to community spaces where people can freely explore and learn guided by their individual Life Path so they can develop on a personal level, share their ideas, experiences and feelings with others, as well as personal beliefs with other people in a community.

Access to these community spaces needs to be made accessible to people in a community at all age levels from children through to teenagers, young adults, adults and older adults.

This means that there needs to be extra-curricular activities at every level of education, the provision of adequate safe spaces for children to play and socially interact with other children. There needs to be access to libraries, youth centres and community centres to which everyone has free access and which offer opportunities for the development of individual, personal creativity and social interaction and provision for such opportunities needs to be made at local community level and accessible in every community.

Why cultural development is so important for a community or society.

Cultural development is essential for the proper functioning of a community and society because it provides the space and opportunity to share ideas and for social interaction. This is what gives a community and society a basis in universal law and provides the freedom for creativity and interaction.

This is the basis for existence and living, and therefore for functioning. Everything starts out with a single idea or belief which is shared with another person and other people, which becomes part of culture and further develops.

Everything in existence follows this principle - every organization, every company, every religion, every institution, every political party, and everything else you can think of. It all started out with someone having an idea and having the opportunity to share that idea with someone else.

Opportunities for creativity and social interaction need to be made freely accessible to everyone and to be made accessible in community spaces in every single local community in the country. These spaces need to be devoid of all belief systems but have the distinct objective of giving people throughout society the opportunity to explore, experiment, learn and discover, create ideas, share experiences, and to be able to share them through social interaction. There needs to be complete and total freedom in these community spaces with a basic requirement that any activity, interest or idea must be totally accessible to people in a community.

But culture is also about energy and emotion, because creativity is also about energy and emotion. As previously stated energy is conscious and can be measured in terms of wavelength, frequency and level of consciousness. We think of such things as energy and emotion as things which manifest themselves inside our minds, inside our heads. But this isn’t true. They exist all around us, creating an energetic signature which we pick up from others from being in their presence, or from projection towards someone or between people.

Culture is never static, because people are being creative and interacting with others all the time.  When not enough effort is made to develop culture and promote human creativity culture goes into decline and social thinking becomes affected. This is because our energy and emotion which is taking place outside us, all around us, becomes affected by the energy of other people and their emotions, and also the collective of energy which exists in a community or society.

Cultural development creates opportunities and communities.

There are numerous benefits to a community and society from cultural development. Free community spaces which offer the possibility of development of personal creativity and social interaction create opportunities, promote social cohesion and create order and a structure in a community. Each individual in the community has the opportunity to become involved in their local community and to share their interests, ideas and experiences with other people in that community.

These community spaces create cultural events where people share their creative output and ideas publicly in the community and people get to know one another in the community. These community spaces in putting on different events attract people to a community and provide a sense of cultural identity and also a sense of social cohesion. They also provide opportunities for people to get to know the community and also to get to know people in the community.

Free community space as a basis for community infrastructure

The key to such community space is that such community space should be freely accessible to everyone in a local community. There cannot be any charges to use the space as we currently have in the UK which is a major impediment to the development of local culture.

Creativity can only take place in free space and if a charge is made for such space this is where you start to exclude members of a community and you start to create divisions in the community, which is counterproductive to what you are trying to achieve. Some people may struggle with this concept because space or property is used to generate income and we have become socially conditioned to associate space with money and accept that all free space, property and buildings should generate some kind of revenue or income or that there must be some kind of predefined purpose. But access to free space in a community is critical for cultural development and to promote social cohesion.

The only criteria for access to such space is that whatever activity is developed in this free space needs to be publicly accessible to other members in the community. This means that the purpose of the community space is to generate interest in creativity and social interaction. This interest in creativity and interaction is what creates a community centre, i.e. the centre of a community - community centres are essentially the glue which holds communities together.

People + space = opportunities.

This brings us to the central and most fundamental principle of this theory in that where you bring people together in space to interact freely and share ideas, experiences and beliefs, you start to generate opportunities.

Humans form social bonds much quicker than any other attachment simply because we are naturally predisposed as animals to form social bonds and attachments.

The need to belong is the most powerful and most persistent human emotional need. When this need is denied it leads to the profound and devastating effects of social exclusion.

These community centres or free spaces are therefore fundamental to the functioning of a society because they allow anyone in a community free access to opportunities to explore and develop their inner creativity and socially interact with people.

This is not only natural but is also in complete alignment with universal law.

The benefits of cultural development in the community.

Cultural development is fundamental for humans to be able to function naturally in society or a community and in accordance with universal law.

Such cultural development in free community space allows people opportunities for personal development, development of moral principles,  and on a personal and social level develop the ability to control, transform and manipulate energy to produce dramatic consequences to their decisions, choices and actions.

This promotes social cohesion, and generates opportunities for business and the creation of work and jobs. Wherever you have people coming together in space you create opportunities for business, for occupation and for work and this generates economic development and subsequently, economic prosperity, It also generates social mobility because in a free community space everybody is equal and free to express themselves and share their ideas and socially interact with others.

This also creates epiculture - the predominant culture of a community and society - and this influences public perception, public mood and feeling, creating a sense of harmony, good feeling and hope among people. People become much more cooperative, much more socially responsible, and social issues start to diminish.

This epiculture influences culture generally and all other cultural influences, such as religion, politics, the media, broadcasting, business, advertising, and everything else.

Cultural decline

Cultural decline takes place when not enough effort and investment is made in cultural development. Cultural decline is caused by political incompetence or ineffectiveness because it is the role of the government and politicians to manage infrastructure and the economy for the benefit of everyone. 

This is because the fundamental basis for the proper functioning of any community or society is universal law and the provision of sufficient opportunity for human creativity and social interaction.

Cultural decline occurs because in the collective or aggregate there is a failure to choose right over wrong and this results in traumatic consequences and culture goes into decline. When culture goes into decline everything else goes into decline as well because of the traumatic consequences of choices, decisions and actions taken in the collective, or aggregate of people which is either led or facilitated by the government and political incompetence or ineffectiveness.

The traumatic consequences of universal law occur as a result of amorality or immorality, the failure to choose right over wrong. These consequences result in chaos, disorder, division, disharmony, enslavement, and this leads to moral, social and economic decline. This is where social issues start to develop, poverty, inequality, social division, social fragmentation and social exclusion. 


The peace and harmony in a community or society changes to disharmony, anger, apathy, despondency,people become less and less open-minded and more and more attached to beliefs and belief systems.

The consequences of universal law are fixed and immutable so when traumatic consequences happen, as they do in cultural decline, the outcomes are only traumatic - increased social division and attachment to beliefs, increased violence and civil unrest, increased protests and demonstrations, social and economic decline, increased poverty, inequality, crime, social exclusion, fascism, authoritarianism and totalitarianism.

The social process and political systems

Cultural development is also essential because the functioning of any community or society is based on universal law and is a process. There is a widespread belief that a community or an entire society is able to function on the basis of a single or solitary belief system, whether it be a religious or political belief system. This widespread belief is false. Societies function on the basis of universal law and truth, not on the basis of any belief system.

Any belief is a single idea or concept. It is abstract, therefore it is physical, something which has been conceived from a single idea and shared between people. It might be true, it might have been true once, but the truth of any belief is entirely coincidental with universal law and not actually part of universal law. It's just an idea or belief, nothing more.

This means that all political systems whether it be capitalism, communism, socialism, are belief systems and they are all strategies for managing and organizing a society. They are just theories which may work in ;practice, but they also all fail when used as the fundamental basis for managing an economy or society and considered to be a replacement for universal law. The same truth applies to all religions. They are beliefs, and beliefs even if they are true often cease to remain true.

The universe is neither capitalist nor socialist, it functions according to the fixed, immutable principles of universal law and on the basis of creativity, interaction, culture, morality and the consequences of choosing right and wrong.

This is no different to any belief we hold in life. It might be true because it is actually true, but it also might be true because we want it to be true or accept that it is true. For example in the 19th century people believed that those with large foreheads were either psychopaths or criminals, which today seems ridiculous.

But when we become attached to a belief and regard it as true what generally happens is that at some point, sooner or later we come across someone who disagrees with our belief, and we also come across evidence that our belief isn't actually true. We then face a moral choice whether to remain attached to the belief and discount the reality or truth which undermines that belief, and thus become disconnected from truth and reality ourselves, or change or replace that belief with one which is actually true.

Constantly changing or modifying our beliefs so that we remain aware and conscious of truth and reality is a process and when it's done in life it is a social process, because it requires constant creativity on our part, and constant interaction. This process is known as cultural development, because in order to be able to identify the truth we need to be constantly aware of our environment and everything in it and therefore cultural awareness is nothing more than the awareness of what is going on in our environment and with others around us. This is innate, natural, this is something which every living being does and it forms the basis of living and existence in a physical world.

Therefore if cultural development is a social process, then so too is cultural decline. You can only resolve the social process of cultural decline by reversing it, i.e. through cultural development. There are no acceptable alternatives to this process, because we are all subject to universal law, and the alternatives are further social division, civil unrest, and social collapse on the one hand, or fascism, authoritarianism and totalitarianism on the other.

Political incompetence or ineffectiveness has different causes which are all related directly to not applying the principles of universal law and choosing right over wrong. This means that being too attached to a belief system, disregarding human rights in favour of corporate profit and monetarism, and authoritarianism are all contrary to universal law and will result in cultural decline, social division and social fragmentation.

When people talk about the failure of capitalism, or communism, or socialism, or some other belief system, they are actually referring to cultural decline and political failure or ineffectiveness. The belief system itself isn't important, what is important is the disregard for universal law and human rights. 

Universal law is the fundamental basis for the functioning of any community or society. There has to be social responsibility, Freedom can only work when it comes with social responsibility and respect for human rights. Democracy can only work when there is a willingness to examine and change personal beliefs. There has to be a total commitment to the sharing of truth and the development of moral principles. 

We are just as subject to universal law as everything else in the universe whether it be the solar system, the planet, or nature. Being human does not make us an exception to universal law and money does not give us any additional power. 

 We need to disabuse ourselves of the concept that only wealthy people create things such as jobs which is not true. People with ideas create opportunities and it is the sharing of those ideas with others which creates the business, the trade and the economic activity which everyone relies on. Anyone is capable of having an idea and sharing it with someone else if they are given the opportunity. 

 People are generally more cooperative and sociable when they get their needs met.  We have more than enough resources and technology, not to mention space and property to properly house, educate, and provide occupation for everyone on the planet. There is more than enough resources for people to have sufficient incomes and occupation without the excessive use of natural resources, the pollution or destruction of natural habitat that we appear to have become so accustomed to. 

It does not matter what you believe, because the reality is that what you believe is personal to you and it does not change the fact that universal law exists and everything in existence functions according to universal law. The universe and the planet are both much bigger and far more powerful than Mankind could ever be, even collectively, which means that choices, decisions and actions will always have the same dramatic or traumatic consequences. 

The closer we can shape our societies to universal law, and the more cultural development we can achieve, the better it will be for not just humanity, but for everything else on the planet.
