Note toward the next balance of human nature, freedom and morality
Ethics: “norms of conduct for the particular group.“ (Stawrowski)
Group/Individual: In human nature the push and pull between the individual and the group, with the higher ethical, moral and biological priority going to the group, for survival and reproductive success.
Morality: Ideals and norms of conduct for the evolution of life on the planet and in the cosmos.
Resolution: The ethical values of the group are subject to the higher moral values of the evolution of the group toward Godhood, with distinctive groups protected by a federalism of separated powers, states and ethnic cultures, defined by ethnopluralism.
International sociobiological research centers (see Cattell) developed to aid all groups in the evolution of life toward Godhood, conservatively keeping the best of the past. Example: the traditional Inward Path religions of the symbolic God Within are retained but transformed in the Outward Path of material evolution to real supermaterial Godhood, that is, toward higher and higher consciousness, intelligence, beauty and goodness, as examined in theological materialism.
