The Relationship Between Natural Law And Human Nature


Natural Law And Human Nature

The relationship between Natural law and Human Nature is the same as between Natural Law and any other element in the Universe.

Natural Law is the Phenomenon that permeates and Governs the Universe and everything the Universe contains, including the Human Brain.

We readily accept the laws of nature in the context of physics but not so human behavior

According to theoretical physicist Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity, E=Mc2.

This means that Energy and Matter are interchangeable. Or in other words, one and the same.

Energy and Matter respond to Natural Law regardless of the guise they may present. This includes thought, the software that prescribes Human action.

Thought is Energy.

While we ungrudgingly accept the Laws of Nature in the context of Physics, it seems to be more difficult to grasp that Natural Law applies as equally to Human behavior as it does to the physical Universe.

Tackled by myriad thinking minds since the advent of civilization, this sorry perennial problem is still very much with us today.


Off-Putting

When we talk about civil law it tends to be a bit off-putting, even in a Democracy. Bringing back memories of aggressive highway patrol men, or laws that are oppressive. There's a law against this or that, we complain.

Nobody likes to be told what to do.

However, in reality, apart from attempts to keep riff-raff in line, all well designed laws help us.

We can generally rely on Good Civil Laws to guide us in most of our dealings.


Rule of Law

All Human Society is based on the Rule of Law. For Society to function, even adequately, let alone optimally, laws are a prerequisite.

Getting Human made Law just right is not a job for the weak minded

The more equitable a Nation's Rule of Law, the smoother both commercial and social intercourse amongst it's populace, and beyond, will be.

When a populace understand, accept, mutually respect, and implement equitable Law there will be Harmony and Confidence throughout the land.

In it's wake will flow prosperity and peace.

This takes an intimate understanding of the underlying Natural Law and Human nature pertaining to Human made legislation.

Getting Human Made Legislation just right is not a job for the weak of mind or faint of heart.

Neither is Law making a vocation for the merely ambitious with a hunger to dominate their fellows. History informs us these muddled thinking types will for sure create conditions ripe for rebellion.

The deeper and the broader, the understanding of Natural Law, and Human nature, held by society's Legislators and Citizenry, the more intelligent the legislation that can be enacted. Leading to a more advanced Society and expanded individual freedom.

This is every person's prerogative and it is a product obtained by exercising Personal responsibility. 


Mirror Reflection

The Society we live in and the Legislation we are compelled to respect is an indication of our general comprehension and acceptance of both Natural and Human made Law.

It is a joyless reflection of our - currently poor - quality of understanding of Natural Law and Human nature that much of our legislation is targeted at curtailing, with the hope of preventing, corrupt, greedy, and disingenuous activity from permeating Society.

Even in so called first world Nations.

A lack of understanding does not mean that one is corrupt, but conversely, every corrupt person is demonstrating their ignorance of Natural Law and the vast potential of Human nature. It is our folly that we accept such ignorant activity in our midst.


Just Society

In a Just Society Human made law is dependent on the spirit of that law being upheld for it to be effective.

The willingness to uphold the spirit of law comes from within the individual

The willingness to uphold this spirit comes from within an individual and is derived from that individual's recognition of the soundness of the law. Based on one's understanding of the associated Natural Law.

If that understanding is limited, or does not exist, an offense prone individual will repeatedly transgress Human made law. Despite inflicting increasingly draconian punitive measures.

Or an offender will merely blindly obey bad laws to avoid further punitive measures, from both ignorance and fear of repercussions.

Neither scenario is acceptable within a Society that is seeking to enlighten and advance itself. Where, with an adequate working knowledge of Natural Law and Human nature, one can obtain the object of ones desire without disadvantaging another.

On the contrary, by obtaining our objectives we benefit all.


 Heart And Soul

The Laws of Nature are the heart and soul of this philosophy of Personal Development.

Gaining, over time, an intimate, profound understanding and appreciation of Nature and Her immutable, inexorable system of Law supercharges your mind.

Natural Laws are identified and accepted by the observable fact that when some phenomenon occurs repeatedly, ad infinitum, and cannot be falsified, we can pin it down and identify it with a label.

We all - well most all - accept that if one steps off a cliff we continue falling until we crash into an object that prevents further movement. Usually the ground.

This doesn't happen at random or sporadically, it happens every single time someone steps over the edge.

Isaac Newton labeled this the First Law of Motion, also known as the law of Inertia, caused by the attractive power of the Fundamental Force of Gravity.


Reliably Repeatable

Natural laws are phenomena that are reliably repeatable.  Natural Law and Human nature are as inextricably entwined as Natural Law and the Forces of the Universe, but not always as immediate as stepping off a cliff.

We come to understand ourselves

Our seeming inability to appreciate this lack of immediacy is, too, our folly.

By focusing our attention on this relationship between Natural Law and Human nature, we can reach an understanding of ourselves, and by extension, others.

This places each of us in a splendid position to participate in the flow of Prosperity and Peace mentioned above.

Peace and Prosperity achieved by willingly contributing to the construction of a rock solid backbone of equitable Human made Law. Solidly anchored in a sound understanding of Natural Law and Human nature.
