Of the many levels of sociality, the top position stands at the cosmic level. However, this level is reserved for species who have demonstrated all lower levels with consistency.
For an individual to care for their person is one level: this is level-one, a required disposition of any species in having a sense of self-preservation.
Level-2 includes an individual’s family: care for siblings and offspring. Evidence of this in nature is abundant, as any species defending a nest or a burrow would easily confirm.
Level-three aims at one’s community: a sense of empathy for those who are part of a local group or tribe. This level is where interesting things are found: teamwork, social order, and where community values are built.
As with any species of advanced sociality, self preservation is a required trait for any species’ continued survival. This basic trait responsible for the continued existence of a species takes many shapes — relative to the needs of said species.
This author previously alluded to an upcoming article concerning self preservation — not healthcare. However, many key points overlap between these two — more critical in concept for the latter. That said, more on self preservation will be covered after this article. Continue reading
The challenge with empowering people with a scientific approach in determining evidenced based fact from subjective bias is that it requires the investment of reasoning at the very base of all supporting information. This journey is one shared by scientists of every discipline true to the field of their study. For without a full understanding of all contributing evidence, no credible theory could be offered.

The entropic style of adaptation for any species of sociality is intrinsic to said species as continually adapting to the environment supporting its very existence. Without this fundamental connection, no organism could survive in its own environment without an ability to adapt to even the slightest change in the environment.
It is the environment that shapes the abilities and functions of all species dwelling within. Likewise, the composition of any environment is defined by all things contributing to said environment. No separation could be implied, for the existence of a plant is as critical a component of an environment as any animal species within the same environment — all are players. Continue reading
Upcoming articles will come under two titles: Universal Rights and Sustainable Governance, and Universal Rights and Self Preservation. Continue reading
Should we be looking for intentional EM signals?
The SETI program represents an unquenchable desire we humans have in learning more about who we are within the grand scheme of things. However, the fundamental arguments supporting the search for stray signals as an indicator of cosmic life are counterintuitive. To go one step further and redefine this need as a search for intentional EM signals is a galactic blunder. Continue reading
Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with those in unique positions within our global society. Of said context, I would offer this: If you have an intelligent question worthy of asking such people, then do so without reservation — with clarity. However, only do so if the answer is not already available elsewhere — else that one question might be the last opportunity you have in receiving an answer worthy of their time.
Our world is filled with complex issues and challenges out of reach by many, and it’s our questions that drives the ideas in solving these issues. To that, what would be some of the more provocative questions worthy of consideration by minds far more experienced than ours? Continue reading
