2.) Every individual should be reared in all philosophical thought, encouraged to apply them to their lives as they see fit, and
3.) Ultimately pick and choose the precepts that work best towards their own happiness.

Here's my idea...it comes from violating one of the laws of thermodynamics. So entropy increases as the universe ages but my idea is that the universe ends when all the secrets and knowledge is discovered or one can essentially become god with technology. Say the human race is inventing and inventing with so many ideas and creativity but what happens when eventually if someone or some species could live long enough, if they or them run out of creativity or things to invent because with technology you have mastered EVERY aspect of the universe and entropy means nothing? you know all, have done all and can do all at will? you could put the universe back to what it was at any point. I think it may be possible at some point if you had like an incredibly detailed scan of every point of matter and energy you could track them all back with computer models to where they began in space and time since you discovered everything even the secrets of the quantum. so what happens when we run out of creativity? lol its kind of like the topic of the thread.
The All is also an allusion to the observer created universe. We create our own reality; hence we are the architect, The All. Another way would to be to say that the mind is the builder. Freemasonry often includes concepts of God as an external entity, however, esoteric masonic teachings clearly identify God as the individual himself: the perceiver. We are all God and as such we create our own reality. Although others believe God to be abstract. Meaning he is not seen in reality, but understood through deep contemplation. He is all around us everyday, just hiding in the miracles and beauty of our Earth.
My hand also has laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand has spread out the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.
When something major or significant is about to happen to a person in the near future, the energy created by the event travels toward the person, as the persons energy travels toward the event, much like plugging an appliance into the wall which is turned on, sometimes a spark will come out of the socket to meet the plug. When this connection of the energies occurs, the person experiences a premonition of the event. Varying energies of different people would account for why some have further reaching premonitions than others.
The world is held together by way of two parts. Mollecule and wave. It is the pitch of the all encompasing "god frequency" that tells the molecules what shape and order they should take.
How about this: The laws of mathematics change slowly over time. Example: Right now 1+1=2, but this is not an eternal truth; at some point in the future, 1+1 will no longer equal 2; it will equal something else. When that happens, the physical world will change accordingly - when you put one stone in a bag and then put another stone in, there will be either more or less than 2 stones in the bag. These changes may happen so slowly we would not notice, but the point is that math itself changes just like everything else in the universe.
For the idea I was talking about, alot of the math is the same, but there are separate quantities for the space and time region. Most of the Newtonian physics hold for the region of space in which we live, but for instance, in the dimensions of time, instead of v = x/t, or displacement (space or distance) over time, it is v = (1/t) / t , which is (1/t^2)... a = v/t becomes a = (1/t^2) / t which comes out to a = 1/t^3...Force translates into E for the time region as well. Reciprocity basically means that s, or d, or x = 1/t...and that time equals 1/s...That is how all these equations are derived.
There are many more that can be derived as well, and the implications, once you understand how the 3 dimensions of time actually cooperate with space, it is pretty awesome.
I'll Post mine about the "reason" for Evolution.
I like to think humans are like plants in our backyard, especially those produce like tomato.
I think our goal is to mix genes around, generation after generation to yield the best fruit that is withstand to environmental changes and give best nutrients.
I would like to think, that we in this planet are just like plants in our backyard, we try to perfect our genes and bring forth the ultimate offspring...thru countless struggles and obstacles our parents and grand parents been thru to give us the current perfected feature.
What the offering would do or what is the plan for it is unknown.
Social Darwinism is generally understood to use the concepts of struggle for existence and survival of the fittest to justify social policies which make no distinction between those able to support themselves and those unable to support themselves. Many such views stress competition between individuals in laissez-faire capitalism; but the ideology has also motivated ideas of eugenics,
An interpretation of the phrase "survival of the fittest" to mean "only the fittest organisms will prevail" (a view sometimes derided as "Social Darwinism") is not consistent with the actual theory of evolution. Any individual organism which succeeds in reproducing itself is "fit" and will contribute to survival of its species, not just the "physically fittest" ones, though some of the population will be better adapted to the circumstances than others. A more accurate characterization of evolution would be "survival of the fit enough".
