right and wrong

(ethics)


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


if 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 those things to exist which don't allow 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 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
