A unified call for respect and support


Published on

At the foundation of all great achievement is great, exact understanding of what needs to be achieved. In marketing, one must have a firm idea of strategy, selling points, and target market. It is only in the greatest definition, the greatest seeing of where one is, what one needs, and where one needs to go that greatest achievement is found.

The achiever must first become aware of existing conditions and needs, then get a clear, specific picture of how he / she fits into the overall scheme of things, and finally find definitions and using them work to specific ends.

This is how individuals function best. This is how groups function best, small groups, no larger than 150 (Dunbar's number). And from here these groups can reach out to other groups via existing intersections or new connections to betterment, to a foundation that enables optimum results.

The concept that I propose can be used in schools (subsets of 150), places of business, clubs, any and all organizations large and small. So infrequently do we even understand what is best for us individually, never mind passing on the need and its comprehension to larger groups.

You can teach all the skills, knowledge, and attitudes you like, but unless people at the core, at their very foundation discover what's best for one and one for all, there is little chance of greatest achievement, greatest life-satisfaction for one and for all, individuals to groups large and small.

A unified call for respect and support

  1. 1. A Unified Call for Respect and Support Jeff Brown
  2. 2. Treat Others as You Desire to Be Treated The major world religions, and even many minor religions, have a similar message, yet it is pride and separatism that causes a disconnect. In this lecture, basic logic and critical thinking will help us to see where we all stand spiritually: on common ground.
  3. 3. World Religions
  4. 4. The Here and Now, and the Hereafter
  5. 5. Religions Aside, Most People Desire the Same Thing The strength of families and friends To choose freely To be treated fairly with honor and respect To be safe and secure Opportunity to provide for self, not be burden on society Right to property and the protection thereof Opportunities to grow and maximize one’s interests Right to intellectual growth and physical health and safety To serve or give of self to family, friends, and the needy
  6. 6. From an Ethical Perspective: Basic Principles of Applied Ethics Personal benefit: acknowledge the extent to which an action produces beneficial consequences for the individual in question. Social benefit: acknowledge the extent to which an action produces beneficial consequences for society. Principle of benevolence: help those in need. Principle of paternalism: assist others in pursuing their best interests when they cannot do so themselves. Principle of harm: do not harm others. Principle of honesty: do not deceive others. Principle of lawfulness: do not violate the law. Principle of autonomy: acknowledge a person's freedom over his/her actions or physical body. Principle of justice: acknowledge a person's right to due process, fair compensation for harm done, and fair distribution of benefits. Rights: acknowledge a person's rights to life, information, privacy, free expression, and safety. (Source: The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy – Ethics)
  7. 7. What You Really Need
  8. 8. But Even More Simply, What Do We Need? To be heard and accepted To be respected To be allowed to err without persecution To be listened to with an open, accepting mind To speak and hear the truth To be given basic rights to life, liberty, pursuit of happiness To be accountable, honorable, and honest To have the right to fail but to be given another chance To be treated fair by laws political and principles social To be loved and to love
  9. 9. Some Say Answers Lie in Science
  10. 10. The Rational Mind In science, Stephen Hawking states that if a valid solution to the String Theory is found, then it will tie together the Theory of Relativity and the Theory of Quantum Physics; thus at this point, Hawking states, we will know the mind of God that we will know where we come from, why we are here, and where we are going. Its Limitations—in the Extreme Can an ant keep up with a Jaguar? Knowing the mind of God Hawking – abstract physics, worm holes, black holes, space / time is fantasy. Quantum, Relativity, and String—its seven dimensions needed to understand our four dimensional universe? Hawking – no theory is absolute: need to know all existing knowledge, knowledge to the end of time, apply it objectively, knowing all possible outcomes to the end of time.
  11. 11. Can the Infinite Lie in the Infinitely Finite? What we don’t know is startling: For example, the maths we have represent an infinitesimal portion of all possible maths. But should we rely on exceptional minds, the intelligentsia to determine meaning for all human kind? Why not a more democratic method to solution? Should we not all come to solution for ourselves without outside, control, manipulation, bias? Should we use the limited-in-the-extreme rational mind of man to discover greater meaning? Or should we look elsewhere to a simpler organ, one which can not only be used easily by all but one that all can connect with or understand regardless of one's intelligence or insight?
  12. 12. Ya Gotta Have Heart
  13. 13. What Are We Really Looking For? Most desire not to err; difficult if not impossible to do so with the limited rational mind. However, humans innately admire achievers, those closest to perfection, yet that which is forever out of our reach. Or is it? "And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.“ -Antoine de Saint-Exupry If one reaches out to another, the only desire being to come to the aid of another, how can one be wrong? Ever? Is this not perfection? And in using this most perfect of organs, the heart, maybe, just maybe, as we perfect our love for the other insight and understanding will be given us by the most powerful and perfect of minds or knowledge that we may never come to us if we circumvent the heart too often with that of the imperfect head or rational mind.
  14. 14. Moving Closer to Love: Where to Find the Meaning of Life "Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone--we find it with another."-- Thomas Merton When asked, what is the meaning of life? Mother Teresa said, "To love and be loved.” “Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.” C.S. Lewis Ye have heard that Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Mathew 5; verses 43-48
