right and wrong

 

that which is thought to be right or wrong in terms of behaviour

 

if there wasn't any life or thought or consciousness or any type of experience at all then the notion of right and wrong wouldn't exist in the first place

 

therefore, excluding those who chose not to exist

(the Mistake), we can all agree that being alive comes before anything else if we want to think about whether what we are doing is right or wrong

 

it the above reasoning makes sense to you then the whole world of reasoning and arranging our lives is as easy as eating pie

 

right is that which allows us to continue doing that which we think is right

 

wrong is that which does not allow us to do what we think is right

 

and...

 

right is not allowing things to exist which do not let us continue to do things we think are right

 

which means wrong is allowing things to exist which do not let us continue to do those things we think are right

 

therefore, the first, the very first behavioural trait we need to learn, is not to bring into existence anything that can bring to an end our ability to continue to do things we think are right

 

a baby is born

 

the first thing a baby has to do to continue being is to breathe*

 

the second thing a baby has to do to continue being is to eat and drink**

 

the third thing a baby has to do to continue being is to excrete superfluous food and water***

 

the fourth thing a baby has to do to continue being is to sleep/dream

 

the fifth thing a baby has to do is to continue being is to... open/close its eyes?move its head/limbs? cry?...

 

****the sixth thing a baby has to do to continue becoming is crawl?

 

*****a baby becomes a toddler when she/he can walk

 

* the quality of the air of the baby's first breath will be a priority when planning The New Habitation

 

**sleeping/dreaming comes second, third or fourth

 

if there is a difference between babies as to what comes second, third or fourth there is a reason why there is a difference

 

***as we become more knowledgeable we will refine our diet to the point where excreting becomes unnecessary (our anuses seal up within a million years or so)

 

*

 

****there are only a few things in a typical home that can stop a crawling baby from continuing to be... stairs, electrical outputs, the fire

 

again the planning of the new habitation will foresee all possible dangers

 

***** this where the planning of the new habitation will best be served by receiving input from the entire world population
