I have for 20 years typed more nonsense than most people have typed truths, and having done this for 20 years, I have become the smartest person on earth… I make arguments, refute them ALL and start again… I have spent more time on earth as a complete moron than perhaps anyone… BUT I have learned from all of this tremendously!
I solved ethics, well… actually not every ethical solution, just the meta solution. There are ethicists all over the world who will exclaim that ethics cannot be “solved”, in fact, people think the idea is so preposterous that they don’t even offer a prize for it… however, it is the most important discovery for any sentient species anywhere in the cosmos, one of the implications of some guy in 2014 solving this is that we haven’t been a divinely inspired species, and for the record, I don’t claim to be divinely inspired!
The solution! Without further ado!
The solution is simple… when people commit suicide they are placing a negative value for being here - for them, life is unethical in that circumstance. In order to make life ethical, you need to have a suicide rate of zero - EVERYTIME the suicide rate drops, you have not only made life more ethical here, but in the entire cosmos, for all species.
There is something called suicidal tension, a term I coined when I was 17 years old, what suicidal tension is, is it is the ease with which someone can commit suicide within the environment using metrics from: not wanting to leave a mess, to: how fast it is, to: no pain etc… One way you can imagine this is to place 1000 people in rooms with only a butter knife and another 1000 people in rooms with a serrated knife… now people probably won’t kill themselves in these rooms… BUT, if you were add torture to the mix, people would start killing themselves, and what you would find EVERY time, is that the people who had the serrated knives, would kill themselves much more that the people with butter knives… add a shotgun for example and the rate would be even higher… by making it easier to commit suicide, you decrease the suicidal tension of the environment., by making it harder to commit suicide, you increase the suicidal tension of the environment. This idea is so obvious that I don’t think such experiments are necessary to show the outcome… in fact torturing people in experiments is extremely unethical of course.
Why am I explaining this? Because the easier you make suicide, the more selective pressure you place upon society to make life for meaningful for all sentient beings in order to keep them here… and the better you make life for these people, the better you make life for everyone. (for example, someone commits suicide because of a terminal illness so painful that not even morphine works… the solution is to cure the disease! or perhaps a better narcotic for these scenarios.)
Not only do you place more selective pressure to make life more meaningful for all beings born here, but you also allow for the fact that not all beings want to stay here, and you give them the compassion to leave on their own terms without any coercion that comes from high suicidal tension, you acknowledge that in every generation, there are people born here who wish they hadn’t been born, and you humbly allow them the means to leave this place, by acknowledging that you haven’t been able to make the world a place where everyone wants to be yet, while striving to do so.
That is the solution to meta-ethics. There is no other possible solution to meta-ethics… the conclusion follows from the premises and there is no other possible solution. For example, if you inverted the solution, you have a society that becomes more ethical when more people killed themselves, which ends up solving as species extinction… and when there are no people, there are no ethics, so the inversion contradicts itself. You cannot have a more ethical system when people kill themselves, because of the solution to the inversion, and life becomes better when less people kill themselves by definition… and even better when you make it easier and easier and they still don’t kill themselves in any hypothetical circumstance that one can muster.
The law of low suicidal tension with no suicides, is so fundamental to sentient life that it doesn’t even require a creator to make… the logic is too fundamental and cannot be contradicted in any possible realm or universe. The solution to meta-ethics is the best discovery any species can make, and holds for all realms of existence.
I have made many discoveries, and perhaps I will make many more, but I can guarantee you, that this will always be the first most essential of all discoveries I have made, it is, for the entire cosmos, discovery prime… there is no higher discovery… all other discoveries flow from this one, the solution to meta-ethics, and as dazzling as other discoveries may seem, are always secondary to this discovery in any possible realm of existence forever in all the cosmos.
It took me a while to realize how great of a discovery it was, and now I know, I have other things I can dazzle you with… BUT anyone who can appreciate the depth and profundity of the solution to ethics will realize that no matter how fantastic those discoveries seem, this is the best thing that any species can discover. How to falsify what good and bad is!
