Rules of Fulmina Foundation
The founders constitute an institute for the administration of research and teaching of the Fulmina Foundation (FHR).
The Council of the Institute of Fulmina Foundation is responsible for bringing together the international human resources made available to humanity for research and teaching, development, humanitarian work and the various emergency situations requiring its knowledge for its intervention in the following sectors: poverty, famine, natural or man-made disasters, etc.
Fulmina Foundation offers the means to bring together human resources and to organize, for joint action, the multiple actors and factors of global evolution which make the wisdom of nations and the knowledge of humanity. These actors constitute the wisdom of nations and the knowledge of humanity, underlining the importance attached to life, the right to life, human dignity and respect for others, considering that justice lies in the goodness of being, and that everything which is an expression of goodness is a manifestation of what is true, just and beautiful, with the intention not to violate the noble values of planetary humanism.
Fulmina Foundation aims to bring together human resources, whether they are writers, poets, workers in any discipline, artisans, scientists, engineers, painters, sculptors, architects, farmers, researchers, or musicians; it intends to promote all initiatives relevant to development and the improvement of general and professional culture; it intends to develop information and notices, of interest to general education and to promoting global civic values through all modern media of dissemination and communication.
Fulmina Foundation intends to express its humanitarian vocation at world level with an intention that is unified, ecumenical and inter-confessional, supranational and apolitical. It promotes the Arts, Sciences, Letters and Crafts for the purpose of technical and moral improvement, renewing general human culture, raising the level of individual consciences, encouraging the specific progress of peoples, societies and nations, to grow in them all the concepts of the Beautiful, the Good, the True, the Just, the Useful and the Pleasant, while pursuing a quest for wisdom in relation to the imperishable, eternal and universal values, fostering healthy emulation in artistic creation, scientific research, teaching, philosophical speculation, metaphysical reflection, and meditation on the imperishable values of existence.
Fulmina Foundation aims to promote cultural, literary, artistic, scientific, philosophical and religious exchanges, in the noble intention to promote the brotherhood of nations and peoples.
Fulmina Foundation intends to fight against all forms of global injustice because injustice is the mother of all violence; it intends to support all projects along the lines of previous formulations, that is to say, affecting various areas of Science, Medicine, Culture, Education, Environment, Agriculture , Industry, Society, Life, and everything that contributes to creative development and the protection of nature.
The Rules of Fulmina Foundation (FHR) is based on the following declarations and conventions:
The declaration of the United Nations of 1 January, 1942;
The charter of the United Nations signed in San Francisco on 26 June 1945. At the conclusion of the conference of the United Nations for the international organisation that came into force on 24 October 1945;
The statute of the International Court of Justice of The Hague that is an integral part of the Charter of the United Nations;
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 10 December 1948, signed in Paris, France;
The convention of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedom signed in Rome, Italy, Nov. 4, 1950;
The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 18 December 1979;
The Convention on the Rights of the Child approved by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 20 November 1989;
The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union signed in Nice on 7 December, 2000.
In order to respond to the most important needs of Humanity, Fulmina Foundation (FHR) includes all specialities within its working forces, ready to provide resources for humanitarian crises.
Fulmina Foundation seeks to recruit international human resources, recruiting through common action the multiple actors and factors in global evolution made up by the wisdom of nations and the knowledge of humanity, with a stress on the importance that should be given to life, to the right to exist, to human dignity and to respect for others, considering that justice results from human goodness and that everything that expresses that goodness is a manifestation of what is true, just and beautiful, with the firm intention of never restricting the noble values of global humanism.
The qualifications of these human resources are:
Respect, intelligence and unselfishness;
Wisdom towards all kinds of existing life;
Practical intelligence to find viable long-term objectives, whether economic, humanitarian or social: aiming to heighten the common level of the moral and ethical consciousness of peoples and nations.
In the planning and execution of their objectives, Fulmina Foundation will thus take into consideration this primary factor determining human life, its rights, its obligations, and its respect. It seeks in particular never to impede what is judged to be good, true and just, in accordance with the deepest respect of humanity.
Fulmina Foundation is adopting an original line of conduct through just thought and action whose chief characteristics rest on the adaptability and permanent evolution of humanity in the fields of Science, Medicine, Culture, Environment, Agriculture, Industry, Social, Life as a whole. Fulmina Foundation understand that life on earth is in constant evolution and mutation, which is the basic principle of improvement of beings and objects. It considers the aim of life to be the permanent evolution of humanity.
Human beings possess mental, intellectual and spiritual faculties, in constant expansion in all fields, as well as a long history that puts them in the first place among all living beings.
Human intelligence is an intentional mental activity, both objective and subjective, which through reflection opposes itself to instinct, or at least provides an additional focus. So equipped, human beings are capable of knowing, understanding, thinking, reacting, judging, discriminating, making abstractions, analyses and intuitions, which are the basis of the human genius, expressed by articulated language and capacities for invention and construction that are practically unlimited. Facing various dangers, the human being can react to the obstacles opposed to his evolution towards perfection and the quest for greater happiness.
Human history is the knowledge and account of past events which are judged important enough to be passed on to the following generations. It reveals the chronological stages of material, mental, psychological and spiritual progress, and therefore represents the scientific study of human evolution.
Using his higher faculties, the human being is in a position to develop and better his own nature and reach his aspirations; therefore, he increases his material, moral, intellectual and spiritual wealth. The real human being must therefore be the one who is developed, advanced, naturally aspiring to overcome his animal instincts. Goodness is the criterion for the evolved human being, the cement uniting people and individuals.
Fulmina Foundation gathers within its ranks human resources capable to better human condition in general and intervene more particularly in certain emergency situations and so doing, bring real solutions to critical problems encountered on the planet and participating in the positive, satisfactory, useful, just and moral evolution of human race.
Fulmina Foundation desires to respond to certain basic needs of humanity, needs related to natural necessities and social life. Gathering all the living, progressive and active strengths of the thinking faculty works for the improvement of the general state of the planet and helps in the development of the highest qualities of the human spirit. The humanist culture is thus what humanity most needs in the critical periods of its history. It seeks to fight against all forms of barbarism.
Fulmina Foundation seeks to dispose of means making possible multiple concrete realisations, including studies, research into economic, humanitarian and social solutions, the results of which are amelioration, development, restoration and integration of qualities that are at the origin the emergence of a planetary race unified by strong bonds of human brotherhood, the sharing of intellectual and moral values, and the just sharing of the planet’s riches.
The fraternisation of nations allows the establishment of lasting world peace and perpetuates a new era of constructive pacification.
The development of the qualities of the mind is the basis of all the capabilities of reflection, meditation, contemplation, action, business and innovation, where all kinds of competences, technologies, techniques and know-how, in order to face the challenges of the new age.
The benefits for the human being are new, broader and more inclusive resources, enabling him to achieve his most legitimate intentions and noblest aspirations which produce the best consequences for the global environment.
Fulmina Foundation, an organisation with an international vocation, is at the service of all nations and all peoples of the world without exception.
Fulmina Foundation believes that each nation and each people are “indivigroups”, meaning, sets of people who all have a common denominator, characterized by the awareness of their specific unity. All “indivigroups”, regardless of their importance, are communities established on territories, defined and personified by a sovereign authority. This grouping of individuals is cemented by the desire to live together, to form a harmonized entity.
A nation is thus an indivisible entity whose members must be aware of their common membership, and it is their responsibility to understand that the interests of some are the interests of all and that what affects one individual has an impact on all other individuals of the group.
We intend to work so that all people acquire this global awareness of belonging to the same community that is the great human family stemming biologically from Mother Earth.
True globalisation is the establishment of the brotherhood of peoples and nations in a spirit of synthesis and total pacification.
Nobody should forget that all nations of the planet share the same life and the same existence, that their interests are in common and that the same blood flow in the veins of every person, regardless of the colour of their skin or their culture, education and social position.
The resources of Fulmina Foundation are international and are based on the faculties of man, his internal and external capacities; capacities which are at his disposal to overcome the difficult situations he is facing. These capacities are designed to meet his needs in the strict respect of natural balances.
The ultimate goal of Fulmina Foundation is to bring together scientists and thinkers in the different fields of human resources. The Charter of this organisation is not static and can naturally evolve over time.
Fulmina Foundation aims to be a centre of strength, love, light, consciousness, thought and knowledge, a library of global expertise, with a humanitarian vocation directed to the moral improvement of mankind.
Each department and sector of knowledge and expertise are distinguished from one another but with interactivity among all possible fields of application that are human resources.
Fulmina Foundation is committed to acting and working in all fields of knowledge and information. It aims to contribute to the smooth running of planetary evolution, while retaining the protection of the values of holistic (universal) knowledge and their applications in the everyday life of the world.
Fulmina Foundation aims to preserve, protect, guarantee, promote and encourage what is positive in many departments of human life activity. It considers as positive all that is consistent with the highest values of the Beautiful, the Good, the True and the Just.
Fulmina Foundation considers as positive the lessons drawn from human experience. Everything that has a sense of practicality and which can relieve the pain from the physical efforts of man is also considered positive.
Man is a being in constant evolution. This evolution involves passing through a series of transformations and is related to ideas of development and the mental and social progress of man. Evolution is a gradual transformation that takes place slowly over time, a gradual change of consciousness; the process involves a series of changes: physical, vital, mental, intellectual, and spiritual.
Evolution involves the universal law of causality by which the creation of new causes generates new effects. Man thus has the power to change what is old, obsolete and outdated, acting in present time by creating causes that he actualises. Within the concept of evolution is the hope for a better life. Thus, it becomes clear that the same old negative causes always produce the same negative consequences. He who does not move forward, regresses and moves backwards, leading to a situation in which man seems to return to a primitive or even bestial and barbarous state.
Evolution is a process that is consistent with both the natural order subjecting everything to the law of transmutation, and a controlled series of changes in the human mind and the external shape of man, which gives profound value to the sacred essence of human nature. No progress without change. No evolution without change of thinking patterns. No mental transformation without access to the superior culture of the mind and the education of the conscience.
The Blossoming of the human intellect implies the mobilisation of human intelligences and their resources to engender a wider expansion of humanity’s global consciousness.
Fulmina Foundation takes into account the whole of planetary evolution. It is particularly interested in the enlightenment of the human intellect, in the mobilisation of all human intelligences and into the enhanced development of the intellect in its relation to the higher principle of the life of consciousness, which we call intuition .
The rules of Fulmina Foundation takes as its specific focus the following areas:
Respect for life, intellect and higher consciousness.
Humanity must value the content of these evolving disciplines. These fields of action must be made fully authentic. The loss of these values would be a real tragedy for humanity.
Fulmina Foundation does not limit itself only to constituting simple programmes of multidisciplinary research. It strives to gather the quintessence of learning, knowledge and skills to establish among these various departments the synergy of collegial teams (synarchy) capable of providing global solutions to human problems. The term “synarchy” means a synthesis striving to achieve a college of good men, each of them being competent in his chosen field, absolutely different from the other ones.
Fulmina Foundation does not pretend to solve all the material problems of humanity. The mission it gives itself, and to which it is dedicated, is to help humanity to rise in consciousness on the evolutionary path, respecting the particularisms, the specificities, the genius inherent in each people.
Therefore its first aim is to mobilise all minds, all specilised knowledge, all people of good will (whether they are farmers, scientists, artisans, artists, skilled workers, or creative or self-taught people), all cultivating the desire to serve the community, the priceless and great human family. This is to help man to follow the perfective path of evolution.
Nothing is more important than to unite all intelligences and wisdoms with the unique and sincere intention to serve the human race, so that the knowledge and wisdom drive away and dissipate the shadows of ignorance, hatred and terror.
The solution to humanity’s problems cannot come from an isolated man, a lone researcher. The isolated individual can only come out with a partial answer to a problem. Currently, in the domain of research, division into sectors, fragmentation of knowledge and lack of synthesis reign. The tendency to hyper-specialisation and the absence of synthesised activities deplete fields of research in all departments of knowledge. Thus, humanity limits its autonomy by accepting or ignoring the tendency to intellectual impoverishment.
Fulmina Foundation seeks to unite the largest possible number of solid skills, put them to the service of projects raising the general consciousness of humanity, to awaken the highest human qualities and to connect human intellect to the circuits of institutional conscience.
For all these reasons, Fulmina Foundation has defined as clearly and briefly as possible the 9 knowledge departments in the service of which it intends to dedicate itself.
Definition of the 9 sections of knowledge of Fulmina Foundation
Science: its universal character ;
Medicine: art of preserving and restoring human health;
Culture: evolutionary cause and consequence of progress;
Education: system of continuation, development and enrichment of culture;
Environment: its multifaceted aspects;
Agriculture: food, basis of physical civilisation and progress;
Industry: technology and creativity for human beings;
Social condition: harmonious organisation of society;
Protection of life: existence as a criterion of action.
Science: its Universal Character
Article 1. Real science implies knowledge
Real science implies knowledge, understanding and wisdom. It implies a total expression of “spiritual” consciousness of the cosmos and the world. Science without conscience is but the ruin of the soul, said Rabelais. It involves two concepts: that of knowing and of experience. Its vocation is to examine, to analyse, to study and to compare the phenomena of life in order to deduce its physical laws.
Article 2. Knowledge is information
Knowledge is information that synthesizes and stores the objects of the mind of man. Knowledge is a globalized synthesis of all knowledge that human conscience stores in memory as the basis for the evolution of humanity.
Article 3. Knowledge can be a helpful tool
Knowledge may or may not be a helpful tool in improving human everyday life. Knowledge is the ongoing capacity to keep in mind the concepts, notions, ideas and archetypes of human thinking. Ideas are pictorial representations of things and beings. They are developed by the thinker and activated by the human will expressed through the development of variable forms of thought. Reflection on ideas allows the thinker (which is the thinking principle of human nature) to discover the laws that characterize the functioning of the Economy of Matter and Nature.
Article 4. Science can be defined as the collection of all phenomenological knowledge
Science can be defined as the collection of all knowledge and learning arising from work whose scope is the stamp of universality. Its objective is the study of facts and relationships experimentally verifiable in specific contexts, using methods determined by the sense of observation, experiment, and the capacity of deduction, analysis and synthesis, which make it possible to develop hypotheses which it confirms and validates, or otherwise, it invalidates and annuls. Mental reflection is the basis of the analysis that allows thought thoroughly to examine a problem or situation.
Article 5. Scientific thought makes it possible to understand the ideas behind the appearance of things and beings
Scientific thought allows a certain level of understanding of certain concepts; that is to say, the abstract representations of an object or set of objects with common characteristics. Concepts can also be defined as an expression of general ideas applicable to specific and clearly determined situations or contexts.
Article 6. The image that mind conceives of a thing or a being
The image that the mind conceives of a thing or a being by the power of imagination is the mental representation of this thing or that being. An archetype is the primitive model of a thing or a being. An image can be analogical when the analytical and concrete mind establishes through the imagination a similarity between two objects that are apparently different.
Article 7. Thinking is twofold
Thinking is twofold: concrete or objective and causal or subjective. Objective thought runs through critical and analytical thinking, examines the formal appearance of material of things, beings and events. Causal thinking refers to a power that transcends the analytical and critical faculties: something that we can call “intuition”, which could be defined as the ability of subjective conscious awareness to understand the causal nature of things, people and situations; using a higher, pure reasoning, inherent to the existence of a subjective mind or causal intellect.
Article 8. Objective or analytical thinking
Objective or analytical thinking handles the concept of form or the concept of living matter, which means taking into consideration the exoteric knowledge of the appearance of life in general.
Article 9. Subjective or synthetic thinking
Subjective or synthetic thinking handles the aspect of consciousness, which means taking into account “esoteric” knowledge of what lies behind appearances: seeking to understand spontaneously by the faculty of intuition what is the essence of things and beings.
Article 10. Furthermore, we can say that objective thinking deals with the formal aspect of life
Furthermore, we can say that objective thinking is concerned with the phenomenal nature of appearance and the formal aspect of matter; and the causal subjective thinking focuses on the “noumenal” (the thing in itself, according to Kant) nature of consciousness and the essence of what constitutes the leading causal functions of life.
Article 11. Also, the Science of the Future must imply knowledge of matter and the spirit of life
Also, the Science of the Future can no longer be defined as mere “exoteric” knowledge of material phenomena, but should be considered – to be complete – both as the noumenal and “esoteric” knowledge of living consciousness and an intuitive understanding of the fundamental essence of substance.
Article 12. Objective thinking cannot function without the subjective mental faculty
Objective thinking cannot function without resorting to subjective thinking, and the latter, in turn, cannot function without referring to the perception or reflection of what is the essence of life which is in constant evolution.
Article 13. Science begins with questions
Science begins with questions to be raised, problems to be solved and riddles to be clarified: subjects that require all the lights of reason. Deepening its own knowledge of the phenomena, science discovers the existence of “noumena”, which obliges it to take on new challenges, forcing it to discover what lies behind the veil of appearances and understand the essence of life in ever-changing evolution. By a coherent and logical process, it must seek to reduce the finitude and limitations of the human intellect.
Article 14. It is obvious that thinking, both objective and subjective, is the primary instrument of knowledge
It is obvious that objective and subjective thinking is the main working tool of the human personality. It is able to undertake all kinds of work of universal scope. Without elaborate mental equipment, science does not exist. Hence, it follows that it is universal in its own nature. It is a major aspect of knowledge, intended to lead the Human Being towards the attainment of wisdom. Without wisdom, the perfection of humanity becomes impossible; so that there is no progress or lasting peace between men and their societies to. Our scientific motto is as follows:
INFORMATION – KNOWLEDGE – WISDOM
The contributions of Science must relate to all men and not be subject to any financial speculation in favour of a minority. It is therefore necessary to clarify the following points:
Article 15. Science must have a beneficial utility
Science must be practical and generate work. Work is a set of organized and coordinated human activities, producing what is useful to the everyday life of men, beneficial for his health and necessary for his survival.This must have a beneficial character.
Article 16. Work in science-
Work in science is a suite of fundamental research on a purely intellectual level, but whose impact may have practical applications in the everyday life of humanity.
Article 17. Scientific research aims to find, to discover
Scientific research aims to find and to discover by an effort of human mind, everything that helps to make progress on the path of knowledge for oneself and the world. The word “research” also involves and implies a harmonious whole of work whose aim is the discovery, re-discovery or revelation of new knowledge. Research is likely to teach what is unknown or forgotten, due to a lack of education and experience or by the disappearance of the ancient archives of humanity.
Article 18. By study applied to specific fields
Via applied study to specific fields of interest, Science can acquire the knowledge inherent to these fields and understand the meaning of things. By applying an orderly method of work, it verifies the facts related to the study of various phenomena. It confronts its discoveries with natural reality, in order to recognize its internal consistency or its likelihood. Science necessarily relies on a methodology, that is to say, a rational series of approaches using methods called “Cartesian”, a protocol of procedures for the sole purpose of discovering, verifying, validating and demonstrating the inherent truth of material “facts”, or relating to the existence of particular facts up to that point unknown to man. Therefore, to achieve its goals, Science always undertakes rational approaches, which must also be reasonable.
Article 19. Science is based primarily on reason and intuition
Science is based primarily on the use of reason and common sense. Reason is a faculty proper to the exercise of conscious awareness. It enables man to judge, compare, understand and judge everything according to specific principles.
Article 20. The scientific method consists of several phases
The scientific method consists of several phases in relation to the practical intellect and the use of the objective mental equipment: observation, hypothesis, experiment and deduction.
Article 21. Observation
Observation: initial phase. This is the mental action which consists of carefully and continuously examining the objects of knowledge: Nature, Man, Society, all forms of life, animate and apparently inanimate. Then, it reports the observed phenomena by describing and measuring them, while subjecting them to the mathematical laws of statistics and the teachings of nature.
Article 22. The hypothesis
Hypothesis: the second phase. This is the intellective act, thought through, which is a proposal that we accept as a plausible, true or probable solution of a given problem. The hypothesis is related to the explanation of natural phenomena, but must be verifiable by experience and deduction. The deduction can and usually does precede the development of the hypothesis, because scientific observation can deduce propositions from the hypothesis.
Article 23. Experiment
Experiment: the third phase. This is the act of control aimed to implement the propositions of the hypothesis. Science attempts to reproduce phenomena in the laboratory to verify the accuracy and validity of the proposed hypothesis. If the experiment confirms the hypothesis, science can validate the knowledge of the law discovered by deduction.
Article 24. Deduction
Deduction: the fourth phase. Deduction, therefore, forms a conclusion by reasoning as to the validity of the experiment. It is a judgment of value, taking a position on an issue that has been solved. It highlights the law that governs the reproduction of phenomena under the specific conditions of experimentation, in a determined frame and according to a precise system of reference. We have seen that deduction is also necessary to develop the hypothesis, and thus precedes and also follows both the hypothesis and the experiment.
Article 25. Science also allows experimental procedures
In fact Science also allows, by its experimental approach and its operating protocol resulting from the application of a method, the rigorous analysis of Man and his Environment, with the intention to know them better or make them known.
Medicine: Art of preserving and restoring human health
Article 1. Medicine is commonly accepted as
Medicine is commonly accepted as the art of healing and alleviating human or animal suffering. It is an art whose practice evolves according to the progress of science. It is therefore based on Science. Arguably it is to the preservation or maintenance of the human or animal form and the restoration of health. It strives to prevent and treat the ailments and diseases that affect mankind. It develops methods and techniques for treating diseases.
Article 2. Medicine aims to preserve
Medicine aims to preserve the balance of human or animal health, to maintain, to keep it intact and to fight against all the factors and agents that may affect the integrity of physical, psychological, psychological and mental good health. Its objective is the fight against tampering and destruction of the human being’s way of life. It seeks to provide the necessary remedies to restore a broken balance, to restore what has been disrupted for many extremely varied reasons and causes. Its goal: to restore harmony, install recovery, and ensure delivery from both physical and mental ills. The return to health is the primary concern of Medicine.
Article 3. Health is the natural condition
Health is the natural condition of any harmonised body. The loss of harmony of form is called disease. Thus, health is what is sound, physiologically, psychologically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Indeed, as a physical standpoint, good health is the physiological state of what is sound. A healthy body has a regular and harmonious functioning for a significant period of time. From a psychological and mental point of view, health is also a mental and psychic state of equilibrium. When the stable condition of the human personality is broken, disease – acute or chronic – ensues.
Article 4. Being the art of healing
Being the art of healing, nursing and relieving pain and suffering, medicine is a corpus combining multiple knowledge, profound insight, skills, abilities, rules of action and means that could possibly obtain these results we have named: healing, relief, care, maintenance, preservation of form. Art therefore appeals to science, know-how, traditional techniques and even morality, ethics, metaphysics and spirituality.
Article 5. Ideally, the goal of medicine
Ideally, the goal of medicine is to prevent diseases, to anticipate them, to prevent their advent by taking certain prophylactic precautions, and put in place hygienic provisions in order to avoid illness. Illness is what is contrary to the psychic balance and physical or mental harmony. Illness is naturally contrary or opposite to general health, which is in line with the general welfare of people or animals.
Article 6. Medicine does not fulfill its fundamental role if
Medicine does not fulfill its fundamental role if it does not provide the ability to heal sicknesses, restore failing health and maintain the balance of human good health. The patient is the one who is suffering from this or that illness, the one whose body is disturbed and unbalanced. Illness is what causes pain, suffering, grief and misfortune: physically as well as morally.
Article 7. To summarise
To summarise: Medicine is the set of all resources, techniques and methods to restore the broken balance of human nature. Maintaining and restoring the person within his intrinsic harmony are the two main objectives of any medicine worthy of the name. It can use in this regard a particular remedy and / or adequate treatment, the goal always being the physical and moral well-being of man. However, it is clear that the well-being of man has something to do with his individual and collective lifestyle; then, what emerges from culture and education in general, as well as the state of environmental conditions and the quality of alimentation, is social life and a degree of development of consciousness and human well-being.
Culture: the evolutionary causes and consequences of progress
Article 1. Culture has a double meaning
Culture has a double meaning: real and figurative. In its primitive, real sense, it is the work done to fertilise the earth and improve its productivity. In its figurative and secondary sense, it refers to all intellectual efforts and activities of the human being to cultivate his natural capacities, his creative potential and his moral and ethical qualities, in order to rise above his primitive and instinctive nature. Culture raises humanity, individually and collectively, to a higher state of consciousness and spiritual development.
Article 2. Individually, culture is
Individually, culture is the sum of knowledge and wisdom acquired over the ages, enriching the human spirit and advancing towards greater self-perfection. Culture has a general meaning when it refers to areas of application concerning the human race as a whole, apart from all trades and technical or professional specialisations.
Article 3. Culture is the concern of every civilisation
Culture is the concern of every civilisation. It includes collective and intellectual aspects inherent to the religious, moral, aesthetic, scientific and technical life of peoples in evolution.
Article 4. Meaning of Civilisation includes all
What we call civilisation includes all intellectual and spiritual characteristics common to the most advanced human societies in terms of religion, morality, aesthetics, science and technology.
Article 5. Religion is
Religion (from Latin religare = to link) is this feeling or awareness, by which or from which man feels connected to something larger than himself in the great universe, which allows him to recognize necessarily the existence of a Higher Principle, a Supreme Intelligence, an Absolute Presence, a Sublime Wisdom, who is both a transcendence and an immanence, from the nature and power of whom depends all destinies. This recognition of an absolute and supreme Initial Cause is what gives meaning and purpose to evolution. Otherwise, there is no real human morality or true collective ethic.
Article 6. Religion is generally
Religion is generally reduced to an intellectual attitude by which man adheres to certain ideas of morality and human behavior, from which results a system of specific beliefs and rituals for different social groups. All social life is necessarily given a rhythm by the principle of order. Order is a question of mastering oneself which is the basis of all real education, and not a moral or religious constraint. Any constraint leads to the many forms of dictatorship and despotism. The principle of love for others allows mankind to maintain peaceful relations with others. Practical goodness is the criterion for this philanthropic love.
Article 7. Religion is therefore based
Religion is therefore based on mystical faith, ideological belief, moral expectation and self-conviction in something higher, with a contribution of the depth of the intellect and feeling, what man calls spirit and heart, intelligence and love, reason and wisdom.
Article 8. Morality
Morality concerns specific manners of men, according to certain rules accepted by all members of a society, put into practice in certain habits whose good or bad nature is defined by uncertain criteria of which the standards vary from one period to another. We can say that morality is a philosophical trend which theorizes human action, subjecting it to the necessities of duty, of responsibility, or of goals that a society sets out to achieve. Duty and a sense of responsibility may in itself be a general moral obligation.
Article 9. Ethics
Ethics is nothing else than morality extended to the entire community and therefore can have a social and political character.
Article 10. To avoid any kind of erratic behavior
To avoid any kind of erratic behavior and promote a certain unified life in society and community, every nation, people, and group must define a line of moral conduct, based on knowledge and wisdom, and no longer on the admission of certain ancestral or traditional customs, or certain traditional usages. The construction or development of a moral or ethical system depends on the degree that men have achieved in the development of the higher consciousness of the world and the environment. The moral and ethical system is then codified and ratified by democratic laws and accepted by the citizens.
Article 11. To be valid
To be valid, any system of morality and ethics must take as a benchmark the unique reference that is the notion of public and individual wellbeing: of beauty, truth and justice. The Good, the Well, the Beautiful, the True and the Just are the general foundations of morality and ethics. We call evil everything that is contrary to morality and an ethics of the Good, the Well, the Beautiful, the Truthful and the Just: there, in those areas of permanent reference, must lie the moral obligations of individuals and the ethical obligations of societies.
Education: system of continuation, development and enrichment of culture
Article 1. Education is the gradual process
Education is the gradual process by which the human mind is formed and developed, as an individual or as a member of the community. Its objective is to educate man, to teach him a number of key concepts of common life, to teach the necessary principles for its control, in order to enable him to respond to individual and social existence with a fully developed personality.
Article 2. It is made possible
It is made possible through teaching, training, education, knowledge and the practice of the evolving usage of society, with politeness and a knowledge of how to live.
Article 3. The formation of a human being
The formation of a human being is the result of the acquisition of a set of theoretical and practical knowledge. It begins in early childhood. It is first provided by the family and then the school. The school is the institution (public or private) within which general teaching is given. It provides the teaching or training that the family is not able to instill in its children.
Article 4. Education is the
Education is the science of parenting and the specific method of teaching. Education is the means to educate by the transmission of knowledge, using specific signs in spoken and written languages. The act of teaching is the activity that seeks to transmit to future generations the corpus of theoretical and practical knowledge, that is, the values considered part of the common culture. The transmission of knowlegdge and know-how is carried out by books and all other supports of communication (newspapers, journals, magazines, and audiovisual, broadcasting and cinematic methods).
Article 5. School provides the student
Universal schooling provides the student with knowledge and skills so that he understands and assimilates and integrates in his intellectual memory the acquired elements, accumulating what will constitute a culture that is common to all members of his group. We call technical all practices used to produce a specific work, or performed to obtain a particular goal, desired or desirable. Formal education includes in its intrinsic system a set of rules of conduct to determine the civic behavior of the future adult, his way of acting in society or in private, and a way to behave and observe some discipline.
Article 6. Of course, human beings
Of course, human beings can learn and master the techniques outside of the school framework, and by himself, by his reading, satisfy his curiosity and quench his personal thirst for knowledge. Learning comprises the will and desires to continue one’s own work to enrich and train one’s own intellect. Learning contains a more general principle than pedagogy. As for education, this word is used in a broader sense to refer to the training of individuals of any age or a collectivity (the education of the people and not their indoctrination).
Article 7. The purpose of education is not
The purpose of education is not only to “create geniuses” but to make “well educated people”; furthermore, education teaches human beings how to behave, in order to be consistent with all practices socially recognised as being the best behaviors and manners. Education means ‘learning to learn’ or to think for yourself so as to make free individuals within independent societies.
Article 8. A way of being or acting
A way of being or acting is a behavior which has an impact on others, which is to say on other people. This is the case for politeness or the civic sense that can be defined as the set of basic rules for living together, in society, determined by a specific behavior and language.
Article 9. We remember that education
We remember that education of an individual depends a lot on his family and social environment. Education promotes the transmission of cultural heritage.
The Environment: Its Multifaceted Aspects
Article 1. For the human being, the environment is
For the human being, the environment is everything located or arranged, more or less, in his vicinity. On the scale of our planet, the environment is constituted by the set of all spatial bodies closest to its centre. For our sun, the environment is not only made up of all the planets and bodies that orbit around it, but also by all the other suns forming the constellation to which our own solar system belongs.
Article 2. We include in the term environment
We include in the term environment all the elements that are near or around something, more or less around a given centre. The environment of an individual is represented by the usual and natural surroundings of this individual.
Article 3. Globally and in synthesis,
Globally and in synthesis, the environment is the set of natural and cultural conditions that are likely to affect human activities and all living organisms. The intimate social environment of an individual is constituted by the group to which he belongs, that is to say by people living in its extended family environment: his spouse, his family, his friends, his enemies, his clan, his tribe, his own world. The individugroup defines the position of free individuals within an independent group with juridical capacities, marked by rights and obligations.
Article 4. The family is all persons related
The family is all persons related by marriage, filiation (relationship linking the child to its father and mother), and exceptionally, adoption. The tribe is a group of families living in the same region, whose unity is based on a common social structure and common myths. The clan is a group of persons forming a separate category, assembled by common interests or opinions.
Article 5. Friends are all persons
Friends are all persons with whom an individual is bond by mutual feelings of affection or sympathy, based on psychological links that are neither of blood nor of sexual attractiveness. Usually called a “milieu”, this is everything that surrounds a person, where he can find a person or a thing. It is also all the material and physical circumstances that surround and frame and define the scope and impact of a living being. As for space, it’s the natural environment that locates a man’s perceptions; in a word, it is the geographical environment in which people live.
Article 6. The natural environment
The natural environment consists of physical components: climate, topography, vegetation, soils and sub-soils. The man is linked to this environment, that he must respect and protect, from which he gets the necessary energy required for his survival: fuel, food, and materials for building and the manufacture of useful objects.
Article 7. Overall, Nature
Overall, Nature is the natural surroundings of every man from which no one can escape, being an integral part of it. Nature is also all dynamic forces or invisible principles that animate and organize the framework of the existence of living organisms and the habitat of men. On its own, Nature is an order that structures the existence of life. Therefore, man must respect it. For humanity, nature is, above all, the world we live in and the air we breathe. It is the space where our earth and all the other planets of our solar system develop.
Article 8. A milieu developed by man
A milieu developed by man becomes an artificial environment and ceases to be natural, because Nature is all that exists on our planet and humanity must be part of it, working as part of the natural forces. The earth is the place where humanity lives, that is to say the set of all places of the surface of the planet on which man can build his habitat and general site of evolution.
Article 9. Ecology
Ecology is a relatively new term to define the science that seeks to investigate the environments inhabited by living beings; it seeks to identify and know the precise relationship between living beings and their natural environment.
Agriculture: Food, the Physical Basis of Civilization and Progress
Article 1. Agriculture
Agriculture is the economic activity with the purpose of growing vegetables useful to man, and in particular those intended for eating. In this regard, it seeks to cultivate land and work it profitably, quantitatively and qualitatively, without toxicity and danger to our survival. The vegetable kingdom is fragile and humanity must at all costs avoid all forms of poisoning the earth which is the source of life and nourishment.
Article 2. It is the set of technical and social practices
It is the set of technical and social practices by which people transform the natural environment to produce plants and raise animals that are useful to them, in the form of family farming or intensive agriculture and respectful breeding of the animal kingdom.
Article 3. By his observation, man
By his observation, man seeks to replicate what Nature does. Man domesticates a certain number of plants and animal species. He selects breeds of animal and varieties of plants, in order to obtain the desired products. He strives to protect crops and livestock against possible competition and creates favourable conditions for their growth.
Article 4. Culture in agriculture
Culture in agriculture is the art of working the land, to make it produce abundant plants useful to vital human needs. Agriculture means putting the necessary natural seeds in the ground (non-genetically modified) to germinate by drawing from the soil and the air (carbon dioxide) the nutrients they need to grow. Sunshine and fresh air are also key factors in the growth of plants.
Article 5. The word “earth”
The word “earth” refers to the solid element on which living beings evolve or the top layer of soil in which the plants are rooted. The soil is the upper surface of earth’s crust developed by human beings. The earth is naturally a mixture of mineral particles mixed with micro-organisms and organic substances, some of which serve to support plants and animals. So, we need to keep it healthy and free of all toxic substances. Fire contributes to purifying the earth, and vegetable ash makes the best, most ecologically healthy fertiliser.
Article 6. Essentially, man practises
Essentially, man practises agricultural activities with the specific purpose of nourishing himself; that is to say: to eat, to maintain, restore or ensure the growth of his physical form. The alimentation of the human or animal body means providing all essential and natural food (non-organically modified) for his operation and conservation. Food is what maintains, restores and renews the maintenance of the principle of life in any function of the body by providing the necessary substances for its needs.
Article 7. Agriculture is the basis of all civilisation
Agriculture is the basis of all physical civilisation and all human society. Human societies are built around rituals of eating and drinking, providing the foundation of the community by sharing the food necessary for the survival of human condition.
Industry: Technique and Creativity Dedicated to Human Service
Article 1. Industry is the set
Industry is the set of all activities designed to manufacture products from raw materials, and to exploit mines and the various sources of energy. The term itself has its origin in artisanal craftsmanship: manual creativity and dexterity, skill, special talent or human ingenuity, all of which are often the result of the transmission of an ancestral culture or the product of the legacy of civilisation.
Article 2. A person may be industrious
A person may be industrious or ingenious or both at the same time, with the art of handling materials and raw materials. The industrious person has acquired some know-how and rules of action in a particular area. The ingenious person, endowed with the faculty of imagination, has the ability to invent factories and machinery needed to produce on a large-scale, at an industrial level, what the artisan produced in limited quantities. The artisan and the engineer are complementary: one creates a small amount of products, which are often exceptional; the other is able to discover ways to produce them industrially. Thus, creativity and technique are put at the service of all human societies and communities who wish to make use of manufactured products, but that might also lead to the destruction of consumables (like food in cans or jars where the packaging has to be destroyed afterwards). Recycling of used products naturally arises as part of the process of industrialisation.
Article 3. The term “industry”
The term “industry” has an artistic connotation, in the sense of craftsmanship. We say that someone “lives from his industry.” The artisan practices an art handed down through the ages, an art involving some manual and intellectual ingenuity. Tradition contributes essentially to the transmission of these crafts through customs, practices, expertise, opinions, as well as the use of speech (word-of-mouth transmission), and by example, from contact with master workers.
Article 4. Industry is variable
Industry is variable: automobiles, oil, food, textiles, metallurgy, tourism, cinema, art, etc… It is said to consist of crafts plus mechanical arts and manufactures in general, as opposed to agriculture. Its purpose is the exploitation of mineral wealth and all sources of energy, and the transformation of raw materials into finished and built goods, with the help of hired labour.
Article 5. By intelligently coordinated acts
By intelligently coordinated acts (Taylorism or work on an assembly line), through his work, man makes use of underground resources (minerals, fossil fuels) and other raw materials (substances in their original state) through the use of processing techniques. The techniques are mechanical operations that human intelligence controls and leads to the manufacturing of finished products, used as such by consumers and users.
Article 6. Management of energy
Management of energy is what allows human being to run factories or industrial systems to produce mechanical work under the direction of men. Energy is absolutely essential in the technical implementation of the transformation process. It can be produced mechanically, electrically, thermally, and even otherwise by new knowledge and technologies.
Article 7. Originally, the economy
Originally, the economy may also refer to the proper administration of a family home, and the management of the labour force of man, animals, and Nature in all its biodiversity.
Article 8. In a human group
In a human group, the economy refers to the technological science that aims to produce, manage, distribute and consume products and material goods produced by human ingenuity.
Article 9. Industrial production
Industrial production means producing material goods in a more or less important quantity, to assume its inherent activities, and employ the necessary means for such a concrete realisation. Distribution shall aim to distribute the goods produced, and to serve the greatest number of people. Consumption is the activity of using the products of the industry, the act of transforming and assimilating consumables, destroying them or making them disappear.
The Social: Harmonious Organisation of Society
Article 1. By the term “social”
By the term “social” we must understand everything about a human community as a whole whose various parts are not distinguished. It refers specifically to the society, that is to say, an association of persons subject to common regulations and gathered for a common activity or for the defense of their interests. That includes literary societies, sporting groups, mutual insurance groups, scholarly societies, corporations, etc…
Article 2. Society is therefore a group of people
Society is therefore a group of people who put resources in common to share the benefits that may result from their development. Among these people, there exist structured relationships of an administrative nature. It also includes any group of persons interested in a common and fair trade venture. Most commonly, it refers to an association of individuals with whom we live. The marital and associative relationship is the foundation of all human society. Indeed, the man and the woman – with their social alliance named marriage or union – create families and families generate community. We include religious families whose associative union creates a religious community. By extension to the animal kingdom, we speak of animal societies (societies of bees or ants) which are the natural reunion of certain animals or insects living in organized groups. What characterises all human or even animal societies is the existence of a unifying intelligence.
Article 3. Intelligence is a factor that promotes
Intelligence is a factor that promotes social life, and therefore pacifism. When it is lacking, instincts are prioritised, or when it is deliberately orientated towards the interests of a group of selfish people, conflict and war are inevitable. Intelligence, spread by idealism (and not by ideology) is the highest faculty of any coordinated, adjusted and harmonised personality. It governs all human relationships and makes possible all agreements, alliances and associations, as well as all unions based on sensitivities, feelings and emotions. It is said, for example, about such and such people, that they live in perfect harmony, that is to say, in perfect agreement. Intelligence favours correspondence and communication between people who are trying get along.
Article 4. In principle all humans are declared equal
In principle all humans are declared equal. In practice and in fact, social conditions create a great disparity between individuals. The people are very socially unequal and are each relegated to a particular social class. A social class is a group of people who share a common feature, a kind of life, an ideology, and especially a similar economic situation. Political ideology often creates social classes: such as the class of the rich and that of the poor, or the parties of the right and those of the left.
Article 5. Sometimes, the different social classes
Sometimes, the different social classes have conflicting interests, which is the source of deep inequalities generating opposition, both moral and economic. Because of his birth, his race or his socio-cultural position, each individual has a rank or a position within the social hierarchy. Hierarchy, in human society, involves relations of subordination or submission to an authority that extends to modern forms of slavery. Slavery is the status of any person who does not enjoy civil liberty, who is totally dependent on a master or a state. Every man, according to the principle of human rights, is civically free. But this freedom has only a relative character when man does not have total freedom of expression, entrepreneurship, or association. But isn’t true liberty the liberation of the self, meaning liberation from one’s own primitive instincts?
Article 6. Slavery
Slavery exists, more or less subtly, wherever there is a relationship of subordination which lowers and humiliates the person, maintains him in a condition or a lower rank, prevents him from progressing and evolving, reduces him to the status of object or to a reference number, confines him to the exercise of the most degrading tasks, oppresses him morally and economically and takes away his dignity. It is a fact that so far, in the history of civilisation, every society – whatever its nature – includes classes based on discrimination, whether or not there is a declared opposition between them. Ignorance is the mother of slavery. Knowledge sets you free.
Article 7. Social life is also closely connected
Social life is also closely connected to working conditions and involves the idea of improvement. Work is what gives every person his human dignity, his economic freedom, his social worth and recognition by the entire group. Therefore, work is necessary for any individual, as an essential factor of development, progress and development. By a specific occupation, every man adds his stone to the construction of the social construction. Work offers to anyone the necessary means for individual existence and autonomy. Therefore, social life must allow people to obtain decent working conditions, respecting the human being, and making possible the harmonious organisation of human societies. This involves the development of life in its most psychological and spiritual aspects, as well as the development of the human intellect. There cannot be any human progress or development of any kind without a general mobilisation of all intelligences and without further development of the intellect in relation to the higher principle of intuition.
The Development of Life: Existence as a Criterion of Action
Article 1. Life is a concept
Life is a concept that encompasses various levels of reality, namely: the set of phenomena that affects changes in the shape of organisms (functions of nutrition, reproduction, regeneration, etc…), the intelligent vital power standing behind the appearances of all material forms (the conscious aspect that animates form), the existence of a supreme will, from which everything emanates and to which everything returns.
Article 2. Biology
Biology is the science of living organisms (vegetable, animal and human kingdoms), primarily concerned with the form, aspect or appearance that life takes to express itself in a dense physical universe. It concerns the physical body of living beings. A living being is a physical form composed of various substances, capable of renewing itself.
Article 3. Life seems to be in spontaneous activity
Life seems to be in spontaneous activity proper to organised beings, but it is in fact everywhere, in organic bodies as in inorganic bodies, in animate as well as apparently inanimate things.
Article 4. For man, “living” means “being alive”
For man, “living” means “being alive” in its chemical meaning. The physical body of man is the vehicle of manifestation in the world of animal forms as well as vegetable and mineral. What differentiates the human kingdom from other kingdoms (animal, vegetable, minerals), is the state of consciousness of life that is manifesting itself. Life permits the existence of all forms and achieves its potential by life experience. Existence is the fact of living, of possessing a present reality within a given shape or appearance. Life grows by acting through the multitude of animate and inanimate forms. The presence of the principle of life in material forms is the criterion of its living activity.
Article 5. Life is cyclical
Life is cyclical in its physical manifestations: the cycle of life is the length of time or space that intervenes between the birth of a being and its death (destruction). It represents the sum of the activities and events that characterise the history of life.
Article 6. The life of man is unique
The life of man is unique; he is endowed with reason and a free will. It is structured by major events: conception, birth, development, experience, growth and death. Conception is the process by which the principle of life is embodied in the womb, as a result of the union of a spermatozoon and an ovule. Birth is the beginning of the existence of life outside the mother’s body.
Article 7. The development of formal living
The development of formal living includes childhood, youth and adulthood, during which growth takes place in the physical and mental form and psychological aspects that are inherent to life. We know as growth the fact of increasing in size, increasing gradually until the mature stage of the physical form. Experience is the fact of existing in an adult form, making possible the expression of life in various ways to ensure the fulfillment of the living being. After which, the cycle of the existence of life in the physical form ends with death; that is to say, the destruction of physical form, which results in the liberation of the conscience and the spirit to travel on to another plane of existence. It seems logical to think that when death occurs, life is returning to where it was before it existed in the dense form. The universe is full of life. What is invisible is only so from a physical and human point of view. Within this universe there are seveal octaves of vibration of primordial light determining multiple states of being, substance and essence for things and beings.
Article 8. Maturity is the age
Maturity is the age when man is able to generate his own offspring. Old age is the age of decline, preparation for death, the time for life is to leave the terrestrial habitat. Physical death occurs with the breaking of the cord of life that links the thinking principle to dense matter: it is the cessation of life in physical form, the stopping of dynamic features that ensured the existence and movement of being in a physical shape. In fact, it is more accurate to say that death is the withdrawal of the living being from its temporary carnal vehicle.
Article 9. Life is a complex concept
Life is a complex concept that affects the aspects of matter, consciousness and spirit of things and beings; it undoubtedly has a temporal and timeless dimension. In its temporal aspect, it seems to be limited by the cycle of passing time. Time is the sequence of events in history, of stages of continuous experience, indefinite continuity of changes, constant movement and change of life expressed through a multitude of physical forms (evolution). Life also concerns the emotional, intellectual and spiritual sensitivity of man. In fact, it encompasses all the dynamics of existence in many fields of activity, ranging from the atom to the blade of grass, to the star and to the galaxies. Thus, we can speak of the life of societies, countries, stars, galaxies and up to creation in its infinite forms.
Article 10. When we talk about life
When we talk about life within the infinite creation, we reach an area that goes beyond the simple limited framework of understanding human mentality: it is the initial center-source of all existence, whose nature is the primary cause of all the phenomena of the created world in its finitude.
