The Universal Code of Life

My two latest blogs, Our Cosmos Grand Design and Our Cosmos Grand Design and Humanity’s Future, presented recent scientific information from Cosmological observations  that our Universe is far from random, as had been assumed for over the past hundred years, but rather clearly has an inherent ‘Grand Design’ to enable the emergence of advanced conscious life. Thus science has now confirmed what humanity once knew and felt deeply going back thousands of years, that our Cosmos is imbued with meaning and purpose. And of course, a Grand Design must assume the existence of a ‘Grand Designer’ in one form or another but all implying highly advanced consciousness.

I also began to explore the broader implications of this scientific confirmation for Humanity today and our future. To summarize and paraphrase where we left off last week:  “How do we step back from the brink of self destruction today? I propose that it begins with the return of higher meaning and purpose to our Cosmos. For Humanity to survive and thrive into the longer-term future now we absolutely need the return of a higher Moral Code of right and wrong for ourselves individually and collectively as societies. What is absolutely defined and understood as good and what as evil? Without that we are truly lost. We need a higher moral compass for all of us collectively. One that is alignment and resonance with those of the Grand Designer who imbued the Cosmos with consciousness and meaning and built-in a ‘Code of Life’ for all Life.”

In 2003 I wrote the initial version of such a  Code of Life and for the purpose I set out in last week’s blog, which is now some 10 years later. I believed then as I do now that perhaps the most important factor for Humanity’s future today is a Universal Moral Code that all Humanity can collectively agree upon. One that is based on what undoubtedly must now be known to be the essential meaning and purpose of Life as writ large in our Cosmos.

For this third and final blog in the ‘Grand Design’ series I present the “Universal Code of Life” below, which can become this universally accepted Moral Code if adopted widely by the people of the world. The rationale for this Code of Life, and why it has this potential, is because it is in in full alignment with the deeper meaning and purpose of our Cosmos as has now been confirmed once and for all by Science.

The Universal Code of Life

The Universal Code of Life assumes that the Universe is purposeful and meaningful rather than random and meaningless. It is presented as the Universal Moral Code applicable to all Life in the Universe. Recent scientific research and theory confirms the purposeful nature of the Universe. (See my recent blogs for that information: Our Cosmos Grand Design and Our Cosmos Grand Design and Humanity’s Future)

PRINCIPLE I

The Purpose of all Life in the Universe is:

TO ENHANCE AND EXPAND LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE

The goal of enhancing and expanding Life in the Universe is the fundamental Universal Life Imperative. Thus it can be truly said that the “Purpose of Life is Life itself”.

PRINCIPLE II

As Human Life is part of Universal Life, the Purpose of Human Life is also:

TO ENHANCE AND EXPAND LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE

PRINCIPLE III

ACTIONS WHICH ENHANCE LIFE ON EARTH AND EXPAND LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE ARE MORAL AS THEY ARE IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE CODE OF LIFE.

PRINCIPLE IV

ACTIONS WHICH DIMINISH LIFE ON EARTH AND REDUCE LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE ARE IMMORAL AS THEY ARE IN CONTRADICTION TO THE CODE OF LIFE.

WHERE:

i) Enhancing Life improves the quality of Life on Earth and develops Life to its fullest potential.

ii) Expanding Life increases the diversity of Life on Earth and expands its presence in the Universe.

iii) Diminishing Life diminishes the quality of Life on Earth and inhibits the development of Life’s fullest potential.

iv) Reducing Life decreases the diversity of Life on Earth and reduces its presence in the Universe.

Universal values and ethics flow accordingly from the Universal Code of Life. Individual, family, organizational, community, national and global decisions/actions can be harmonized with the Universal Code of Life for the benefit of all Life, in accordance with natural law inherent in the structure of our Cosmos by chance or design.

One Comment

  1. Excellent Article, and I fully agree. As Consciousness rises, so too does the need to change the past methods of dealing with life. In embracing a Progressive Reality, enhancing quality with respect for all life on Earth and elsewhere in the Universe is a natural function of expanding Awareness in Divine and Natural Law, which at one time long ago were One. In Conscious expansion, understanding the Universal Code is ones natural State of Being, while one remembers the Past, fully Lives in the Present while embracing the Future inclusive for all.
