June 5, 2014: This chart was first used in a blog, 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.
Though this is the first time this ethical bias has been placed on a chart, it had became so obvious, so entirely self-evident, it had become a truism for me.
This circular color chart opens the door on the story. The chart seems to capture all the energies — both negative and positive — within our finite universe, including our finite world, and our finite life. Though using a Cartesian coordinate system as its container, here the x-axis (horizontal axis) is the totality of 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.
Of course, this is a first pass at a complex subject addressed by a relatively simple person trying to make sense of it all. There will be many more updates to come.
You might find an earlier article about the constants and universals to be helpful. In many ways, it anticipates this chart but was prior to the chart’s development. Title: 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?
