'Morality' Chapter

Morality

Your memories of your life are filled with memetic content. All these little bits of information, story, and experience work together to shape your thoughts and feelings on everything. Most conventional models of morality are a special and exceptionally intense set of memetic reinforcements. Our culture develops a set of beliefs that speak to what it supposedly means to have a heart or soul, and more often than not, when someone reflects on whether they are making the right decision or not, they reference this body of beliefs. People rarely invent new beliefs about right and wrong.

“Morality is the herd-instinct in the individual.” Friedrich Nietzsche (German classical Scholar, Philosopher and Critic of culture, 1844-1900.)

“What is morality in any given time or place? It is what the majority then and there happen to like, and immorality is what they dislike” Alfred North Whitehead (British Mathematician and Philosopher, 1861-1947)

Moral Behaviour

Previously we discussed morality in the memetic context, more or less with the notion that morality is memetic. Though that is not the total truth, it’s more specifically a human truth. Which doesn’t mean morality is exclusively human. So I… Seek More

Déjà vu Sense

In a sense, deja vu is literally true, because you did see whatever it was before your thinking mind caught up with it, and sometimes that lag is noticeable. But this is where we get into today’s topic proper on… Seek More
