Please note: The first use of this chart was on June 5, 2014 in a blog on LinkedIn, Is There Order In The Universe?
All three of these major domains of human activity — Science, Business & Religion — are fraught with travail and have been blemished with the worst of human behavior. Notwithstanding, there is a deep ethical bias within science which is also an essential infrastructure of business, and it is the heart of good religion.
This ethical bias is so obvious, entirely self-evident, it has become a truism for many.
The chart begins to tell that story. This circular color chart is our finite universe, including our finite world, and our finite life. Though using the Cartesian coordinate system as its analogue, here the x-axis (horizontal axis) is also time. The vertical y-axis becomes the totality of space. The thrusts — energy and purpose — are the most basic forms/functions of life. Above the x-axis are all the constants and universals that define who we are, our life, the arts, sciences, business and religion. Below that x-axis — domains that involve so much of human activity — is the antithesis of Order/Continuity, Relations/Symmetry, and Dynamics/Harmony.
The antithesis of these form/functions create a de facto ethical platform by which we can begin to judge ourselves, our businesses, our religion (including atheism), and our political and social organizations.
There is an earlier discussion about these constants and universals that anticipates this chart but was prior to its development. It is simply titled, Belief systems https://bigboardlittleuniverse.wordpress.com/2013/03/21/belief/
Again, the first use of the chart was within the article, Is There Order In The Universe?
