I am quoting a what Jesus was purported to have said. And although I say Jesus, there could be other names.
Love your enemy - humans hate their enemy.
Turn the other cheek - humans get back at them
Help others - some humans do, but not enough
Do not commit adultery - (!)
Don't covet, don't envy, don't be jealous - WHAT?
Praise the Creator - some do.
Don't lie - WHAT?
If someone takes your coat, give him your cloak - ENOUGH!
So obviously these laws have originated from somewhere out of this world - some entity originated them, otherwise they would not even be in this world because humans have no natural concept of most of these laws.
The entity which originated these laws wishes good for mankind - I call this entity Jesus, but this entity may have many other names - we do not know.
Also, I think that we have to thank whoever created these instructions - otherwise we would be even more horrible than we are.
All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye so to them; for this is the law and the prophets. Matthew 7:1
Do not do to others what you would not like yourself. Then there will be no resentment against you, either in the family or in the state. Analects 12:2
Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful. Udana-Varga 5,1
This is the sum of duty; do naught onto others what you would not have them do unto you. Mahabharata 5,1517
No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself. Sunnah
What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellowman. This is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary. Talmud, Shabbat 3id
Regard your neighbor’s gain as your gain, and your neighbor’s loss as your own loss. Tai Shang Kan Yin P’ien
That nature alone is good which refrains from doing another whatsoever is not good for itself. Dadisten-I-dinik, 94,5
