This will be very brief.
Sometimes, naive minds will find themselves saying "only Humans create good and evil", or something to that effect. Now, a little bit of thought
will very easily undo this hyper-unreal point of view, as there is nothing that lives which doesn't form a like/dislike binary, a "good for it",
"bad for it" split - that is, there is no creature which doesn't have a basically teleodynamism - a direction to which it's coordinated dynamics
move, and the very opposite - anything which obstructs or upsets that essential life-affirming agenda.
Somehow, Human beings have managed to trick themselves into believing that they can "transcend good and evil" - ala Nietzsche wrote a book with just
that name. How!!? Is this not the most anthropomorphic hullabaloo nonsense? Yet see how naturally it rolls off tongues into real conversation: the
thinkers and speakers really think that they are the source of their motivations, feelings and needs. It is sad and demented - as an expert in
this matter - to think of how much in our world goes awry because those who get power are not able to see, appreciate and duly restrain themselves -
because a culture exists among the elite which is a paragon case of Human affective dynamics gone haywire.
Watch a Shrew, a duck, a beaver, a mouse, a penguin, a protist, or a bacteria, and the same phenomenon appears again and again - and it isn't
surprising, because it is an essential element of the complementary nature - and coordinative dynamics - that underlies the behavior of all living
things. Things are coordinated: and guess what? You aren't conscious of the majority of what coordinates your being with Others, yet the meanings -
or representations - shared between the "reactive faces" of the macroscopic object called the Human being - is a whole lot of fancy - but ultimately
incredibly self-destructive - B.S.
There is now way out of this besides evolution. Evolution created this situation - and now we, as dispersed and situated in different places and
contexts as we are - must recognize that this is a truly insane situation to be in. Good and Evil are functions of dynamics. Dynamics are REAL - the
follow RULES - and if the mind does not represent those rules with others mind through communication and speech - the rules will keep functioning
side-by-side with the lunatic, grandiose, utterly-naive mind which has far too prematurely pronounced the "unknowability" of being and reality.
To think Isaac Newton once said "organisms will never be understood". He spoke too surely. He did not anticipate thermdoynamics, or Darwins theory
of evolution, or quantum mechanics, or the astounding insights into the nature of reality provided by dynamical systems theory, etc.
Life IS understandable, and could be contained by a fifth force of the universe, or what could be called the "coordinating dynamics between elements
which form a symmetrical system". This is a sort of centripetality which orders energy through the material structures which contain the flow of
energy, and yet this structure is so large - so complex - and so, unbelievably coherent, integrated, and resilient against dissolution.
Good and Bad are its inevitable and eternal coordinates. I can either affirm what is the nature of my being (good), or I can deny it.
Denial means denying reality. It means denying this planet, other people, other creatures - essentiall all otherness, since the entirety of what we
are, is, as everything else is, a function of normal self-organization processes which have no essential ontological nature that is separate from
other structures/processes. Everything fits into everything else. Lunatic philosophies will either, a) remain unknown, and so continue damaging
this planet and its many inhabitants b) become known, and become naturally de-selected by sane Humans who understand that a philosophy which denies
the other - other Humans, Nature, or other animals, - is structurally and functionally incompatible with the rules which operate and streamline Human
“Natural science will in time incorporate into itself the science of man, just as the science of man will incorporate into itself natural
science: there will be one science.” – Karl Marx, Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844,
There is no religion vs. science, or God vs. Man. All of that is delusional - a function of a person ignoring the feelings which first establish the
contrariness and oppositionality of their relation - and then simply positing like a mindless automaton as if the feeling state didn't itself
constitute a form-of-knowledge i.e. propositionality.
It's trauma. Only trauma splits the world and keeps the world split. The animal in you - the reptile brain - orchestrates a conservative calculus
which naive elites imagine that they are the manipulators of - as opposed to being equally manipulated by a fantasy that gives them the false idea of
being "neutral" to the situations they act upon, effect, change, and order.
Knowledge is not neutral, or separated from matter, but deeply related to the way matter organizes itself through Human beings. Some claims are in
fact wrong - de-correlated with the dynamics and the laws which organize the structure/being. Because all laws are in fact consttituted by
"coordinating dynamics", the core complementarity of "top-down" i.e. whole vs. part, which is present in any analysis of any living phenomena,
operates as the fractal template in the construction of Human symbolic systems - systems which are born from contraries - complementarities in living
- which achieve "symbolization" in the language system.
Everything, indeed, is about the RELATIONSHIP between opposites - the most basic of which, at least for us Humans, is Self vs. Other.
