The beginning:
My Philosophy on Metaphysics
I believe the world is essentially as Abram sees it: our understanding of the world is a product of our experiences with it, and our hope lies in trying to come to a consensus. Despite our different perceptions, we can still agree on mathematical laws, or share a great many common experiences and views; otherwise, this course would not be possible, education would not be possible, and government would not be possible. Our common experiences point to certain truths, and many of those are moral truths: certain actions have certain consequences, and some actions are better than others to promote that which is good for all. There is also some connection among all life that we can feel; God? In this way, we are...
The end:
..... point where we cannot keep fighting each other and making the world more corrupt. The life that is best for all—the life of virtue—of character, and respect for all—is the only life we can aspire to.
Abram’s recognition of others’ beliefs is really the way we must decide to live now in a global society. Yet that does not mean there is no truth, or there is no God: all human beings feel certain moral truths, whether they admit this or not. It is wrong to destroy our planet, for example. Consensus about what is wrong and how to act in every area of our world, as in the Earth Charter, might bring us closer to Mill’s idea of a world that works for the good of all, or Descartes’ idea of reason linked to something higher that we are all part of.
