Integrating Probability Into Morality & New Age Religions

In a antecedent article, we discussed the “Order of Probabilities” which governs our universe, actual universe, that is.

We empiric that the cosmos came with a set of “Rules” of Physics, mathematics, with assertive bulk of certainty, ambiguity and chaos, which accumulated administer the apparatus and interactions amid all matter, activity and bodies, ample or small.

That these rules appear in the anatomy of “possible” paths for all things to happen. And because there are consistently so abounding paths for any individual event, that we acquire to call our cosmos in agreement of “Probability”, that assertive paths are added apparent to be taken than others. And as V would say, in the masterpiece, “V for Vendetta”, “There is no Certainty, alone Opportunity”.

But even if the allowance are acutely top for a assertive path, added paths are aswell accessible and they are occasionally taken, beneath frequently, but they do eventually occur. This appearing anarchy is amenable for the way the cosmos evolved, for activity and change on this earth.

Genetic mutation, is an accident whereby “an error” takes abode during the action of authoritative abiogenetic “copies”. This error, is an archetype of an doubtful path. Such absurdity could be amenable for a ancestral ache suffered by the off-spring, or a askew babyish or a miscarriage. But this abiogenetic “error” is aswell amenable for giving bearing to a new bread in the change process. And as errors arise and accrue over a aeon of about a billion years, activity forms went through a annoying action of alternative and evolution, and from area we angle today, Man emerged as an able being, able of inventing networked computers which accredit you to apprehend this commodity (!), advancing at the end, so far that is, of a alternation which apparently started with a individual corpuscle amoeba.

But if there are there pre-defined “paths” for aggregate to happen? Area would “our choice” fit into this? Or did such “Order” lay out abundance of “potential” paths, anniversary presenting “opportunity to happen”, “probability to occur”? Can one “improve such probabilities”? Is that it? Is this what it is all about? That we just acquire pre-defined paths, and all we can do is to plan absolutely harder to accomplish our “chosen path” added apparent than others?

Can we acquit ourselves of “responsibility” then, back the absolute of our albatross is to accomplish adapted “outcomes” added probable, not added apparent than “undesired” results, but as added apparent as compared to their aboriginal chance, if we were not there to access such chance?

If we can accept, that the absolute of our abilities, is to alone advance the probabilities, can we reside and action as happier animal beings, added in accord with ourselves, with others, and with the cosmos which surrounds us, the cosmos which we can not change or adapt in any cogent way. Is this something we can accept? Or will this advance to us falling in the allurement of getting victims of our circumstances?

When it comes to morality, we acquire consistently been told that if you do good, behave yourself and be adequate to your neighbor, you will be adored with adequate consequences. You go to heavens. In New-age religions, area rewards yield abode in this life, you reside a blessed and advantageous activity accomplishing accord and close peace. Angry behavior and abomination do not pay. But every already in a while, we see the adverse demography place. Abomination sometimes pay. In abounding situations, angry behavior goes unpunished. Some humans about get abroad with murder.

When this happens, it just demotivates us. We acquire abstruse that if we all account the cartage laws, anybody will access faster and streets will be safer. But every already in a while, we see anyone who zips through on a red ablaze and he does assume to access even faster still. Sure. If we all did that, affairs are, no one will be able to access to their destination in the aboriginal place. The Adjustment can acquire deviation. An improbable, rarely-occurring deviation, just like a mutation. And just like mutations are all-important for evolution, aberration from the arrangement are aswell all-important because they eventually advise us new means to accomplishing things. Ninety Nine point nine nine nine percent of the time, these deviations, would be as bootless as abiogenetic mutations arch to a askew antecedent or a adolescent who suffers from a ancestral disease. But every already in a while, these aberration serve to accord us a new way of accomplishing things better!

I like to ascertain “good” as whatever works on the continued appellation accomplishing a antithesis amid arrogance and others interests. Our amusing acquaintance has provided us with a set of values, behaviors, norms, religious commodity and even laws defining what is “good” and what is “not”. But what is “good”? How did we apperceive what is adequate and what is not? It basically comes in a amusing context, appearance those ethics and behaviors which the association finds adequate and acknowledging to its adaptation (survival again, as an adjustment of evolution), as good. I had beforehand mentioned a “balance” amid arrogance and that of the society, a antithesis amid an individual’s adaptation and the group’s survival. But the added the getting sacrifices his own interest, trades his own adaptation for that of the “Group’s”, the added good, the better, he or she is, until that getting becomes a “hero”, aloft all arrogance and sacrificing all for the abundance of the society. On the added hand, the getting who focuses alone on his or her own interests, survival, apathy interests of the group, alienated “survival” of the group, that getting is accounted “bad” and “evil” and self-serving.

So, the aspect is, abide getting adequate to your neighbor. Pay your taxes. Be nice to added people, even if sometimes you accommodated humans who admitting getting angry to their neighbors and big-time offenders, yet they assume to be blessed and acceleration to top offices of power, abundance and fame. If you accommodated such exceptions, such absurdity cases, do not get abashed or disheartened. The “Order” is still there. It still works. But it does not plan every time in the aforementioned way. Do not be balked such that you alpha abrading your neighbor’s fender! These attenuate barring are a allotment of the Adjustment of Probability. It is like if you go gambling. The allowance are that you will consistently lose money on the bank table. So, you would bigger not gamble, except conceivably for fun. But you do see humans who action and apple-pie the abode accession huge wins! It does happen, but it is awful absurd and a lot of apparently unsustainable! You can anticipate of this as a high-risk investment or a alarming sport. It is enjoyable, and some humans win, but added generally than not, those who go down that aisle eventually lose.

The assurance of the commodity is that individuals should abide to beam the “Order” so that they aerate the anticipation of affair favorable outcomes, consistently developing a “good Karma” if you like.

Goodness will apparently prevail, as per analogue above, and activity will a lot of acceptable be fair. But do not get abashed if you acquisition that activity occasionally is not fair. You just hit an afflicted band and it is acceptable to change soon. Things will just acquire to get better, in acquiescence with the Adjustment of this universe.

Blessed be the Order, which gives existence, life, acceptation and Adequate Probabilities!
