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.
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
A social entity is an organization as functioning in response to the pressures from a social construct. These include organizations who manufacture products or offer services — public or private — their existence or function can be non-essential to a species of sociality.
If a social entity fails to function sustainably, it is without the universal right to continue said unsustainable function. For an unsustainable social entity to receive continued support from a social construct — defines said social construct as unsustainable — inherently detrimental to the capabilities of a species of sociality.

Any species exhibiting sociality is the result of a species adapting to an environment laden with challenges — naturally solved by evolved sociality. Sociality does not develop in response to nothing, magically beneficial to a species’ function in a given environment. Sociality is proof of sustainable function, for without it, no species could survive an environment fraught with challenges — specifically solved by sociality. No less is this function needed to survive, than for a herd of elephants forming a protective circle around their young at the sight of predators. Continue reading
