Civilization decision

Back to the simple life or on to a hightech civilization? An ethics evaluation gives a clear answer to the course that should be taken.



Regardless of what is considered to be short term and medium term here, without technology it is not possible to avoid a catastrophe like the one 65 million years ago. So all long term evaluations without technology are negative.

  Ethics


Ethics is the science of survival. Surprising analyses of what is ethical and unethical. Ethics that correspond to survival or downfall in the real world.

Ethics as the logics of survival
Survival as the target, ethics as the science of implementing this target. Of course, we must then define who, how and over what time period survival refers to in this context.


Cosmic threat for mankind: meteorites
According to game theory, the task of intelligent life is to protect the home planet from catastrophes. Let's look at the ethics related to this.


Knowledge brings change
Central concept 1: Knowledge is a prerequisite for ethics. Knowledge is thus able to change the bases of decisions laid by ethics.


Verifying knowledge
Central concept 2 - knowledge changes what ethical decisions are - necessarily leads to central concept 3: Ethics force us to verify knowledge


If everybody would do this
Consequences for the areas of survival family, group and mankind. An estimation of consequences always starts with the question ''If everybody did this...''.


Division of labour in society
Can each individual engage in ethics to such an extent that they can work out a complete answer to each basic situation in their life by themselves?


Organisation of society
A society should be organized in such a way that the science of survival, called ethics, is in harmony with the generally accepted views of society.


Ethics for groups
The guidelines for a group should be configured in such a way that the decisions of individuals are influenced in a direction that is of benefit for the group.
