Philosophy of Life [Credit: Wallace, p171]
All people must live by some philosophy, either consciously or subconsciously. To most people, this means a subconscious mixture of contradictory ideas. Most productive people scorn explicit philosophical thoughts or ideas because they have been exposed all their lives only to dominant, irrational anti-life philosophies.
All popular or dominant philosophies are altruistic in nature and work against the best interests of honest, self-sufficient producers. Thus out of self--defense, most productive ignore or reject all explicit philosophies never knowing that a rational, pro-human philosophy does exist. This philosophy is expressed or implied throughout this book. A pro-human, pro-life, self-consistent and rational philosophy for achieving health, wealth, love, pleasure and long-range happiness here on Planet Earth, in This Life.
Philosophy of Science [Credit: Hawkins, p174]
Up to now, most scientists have been too occupied with the development of new theories that describe What the universe is to ask the question Why. On the other hand, the people whose business is to ask Why, the philosophers, have not been able to keep up with the advance of scientific theories. In the 18th Century, philosophers considered the whole of human knowledge, including science, to be their field, and discussed such questions as: Did the universe have a beginning? However, in the 19th and 20th Centuries, science became too technical and mathematical for the philosophers, or anyone else except a few specialists.
Philosophers focused the scope of their inquiries so much that Wittgenstein, the most famous philosopher of the 20th Century, said, "The sole remaining task of for philosophy is the analysis of language." What a comedown from the tradition of philosophy from Aristotle to Kant!
However, if we do discover a complete theory that unifies the Gravitational, the Electromagnetic, and the Strong and Weak Nuclear Forces, it should in no time be understandable in broad principle by everyone, not just the scientists. Then we shall all, philosophers, scientists, and just ordinary people, be able to take part in the discussion of the question of Why it is that we and the universe exist. If we can find an answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason, for then we would know the Mind of God!
Philosophy of Human Life and Romantic Love [Credit: Wallace, p304]
Without a conscious philosophical position, no firm base of or principles is available to guide the direction and growth of one's work, life or love relationship. The concepts of this book are grounded in the explicit philosophical position that is consistently based on the physical, psychological, and the intellectual nature of man.
Consciously or subconsciously, all people make philosophical choices that determine the course and nature of their lives. Only two fundamentally different philosophical positions exist for human beings: (1) A reality oriented, pro-life choice (Arstotelian), or (2) A mystically oriented, anti-life choice (Platonic). The destiny of all individuals and societies is determined by these two basic philosophical choices.
The following table divides all philosophically related "isms" into two camps: Altruism (Platonic based), and Individualism (Aristotelian based).
|Platonic Based: collectivist, "higher" cause oriented.||Aristotelian Based: individualistic, reality oriented.|
|Other causes are "higher" than the man, the individual.||Man, the individual, is the highest cause in the universe.|
|Forced sacrifice of man's life and property to "higher" causes is sanctioned.||Initiatory force of any kind against any individual or his property for any reason is categorically immoral.|
|Service to others or to "higher" causes is the moral purpose of man's life.||Achievement or personal long-range well-being and happiness is the moral purpose of man's life.|
Plato vs Aristotle
Platonistic philosophy is the basis of every irrational and destructive philosophy and political system promoted in the past 2300 years and is the basis of mysticism, altruism, sacrifice, egalitarianism, existentialism, religion, dictatorships, socialism, democracy (see Dictionary), communism, fascism, and every other rule of force and fraud. Platonistic philosophy provides the rationalizing mechanism for fabricating an "intellectual basis for any false or specious philosophy and to "justify" any irrational means or ends. Platonism provides the tools for rationalizing and integrating man's two primary character faults, Laziness and Envy.
Aristotelian philosophy, on the other hand, provides the tools for discovering objective truth. The tools that the producer of values needs in order to discover the knowledge necessary for guiding his or her life to psychuous pleasures and long-range happiness. Aristotelian philosophy provides the intellectual tools for identifying and meeting the objective needs of the human organism for optimum survival.
