This is the place for all kinds of brainstorming. Anything goes. From time to time, the Sea of Chaos might also give birth to new forum categories.

It is only a BRIEF introduction
to the theory. Please allow me to point out that if the points described in
points 1 through 45 are not accepted then all the following points become
invalid. This is just a guide. One thing that I would like to stress is, I
do not believe that everything I have written is to be taken as ( to coin a
phrase ) the Gospel truth. It is a SOLUTION to the present global situation
and not a new religion. It solves a hell of a lot of global problems in one
go and nothing else.

I am fully aware of the dangers involved in this project, but I truly
believe that the gains the world can derive from it, far outweigh the losses
caused by its release.

A Second Chance : The Solution

Problem


a. To find the lowest common denominator in all conflicts around the world.

b. Remove the singularity.

c. Find the faults within this parameter.

d. Give reason for the rise of said parameter.

e. Change the found parameter.

f. Replace the singularity with changes intact without removing the
principles of the

original.



For any theory to succeed it must meet the following three criteria:



1. There must be a need for it.

2. It must be technologically possible to implement.

3. There must be a political will for the theory to be executed.



This theory fulfils the first two criteria; the third is up to the
politicians around the world to decide.



The following points are a list of headings pertaining to the theory. Each
point can be proven to be either a true statement or an acceptable
alternative to the present global situation. The proof of each point can be
found in the history of mankind since the last ice-age. Mankind itself
proves this theory to be correct.


Theory


1. The lowest common denominator must be what an individual is
subjected to in the first years of life.

2. The social structure you are born into, contributes to defining you
as a specific type of person.

3. The myriad of parameters that can affect the way an individual
develops their own set of moral rules, is itself very controlled.

4. Parental influence must be said to be the largest governing factor
within the very first years of existence.

5. The parental influence is governed by the immediate available
environment. Be this a religious and or a political belief. Both kinds of
belief give rise to icons.

6. Thus the lowest common denominator giving rise to conflicts must be
said to be an iconic based belief.

7. Having now found the singularity, the easiest way, would be to
remove it completely. This would bring about a chaotic global system
incapable of bearing any kind of functioning social structure.

8. Due to the total devotion of individuals around the globe to their
respective faiths and beliefs, removing the foundation for their very
existence, would be catastrophic.

9. Fundamentalists do not necessarily have to be terrorists. Every
leader of an individual faith must also be said to be fundamental in their
belief. Devotion to a deity is a social accepted norm.

10. Scholars of faith would have to continue to believe that their lives
haven't been spent in vain. The principles of the belief must be allowed to
continue in the way they have always done.

11. Allowing the continuation of the principles behind the belief, allows
the continuation of said belief to define a group of individuals or nation
as unique.

12. Finding a fault or faults within the belief structures both past and
present isn't an easy task, as the diversity of the beliefs gives too wide a
spectrum.

13. Individual faults within the singular belief cannot be bought to
light as they are only faults if you do not believe in the specific faith.

14. Common faults within every specific belief must be found.

15. Faults akin to every faith or belief are as follows: - They all crave
worship, they all state their own specific belief is the correct one, thus
every other belief must be wrong.

16. Worship is a human anomaly, practiced only by humans.

17. Finding the reason behind the diversity of the beliefs must be a
primary goal.

18. World beliefs though diverse are normally associated to a specific
region, not so much today as in the past, due to the advent of
transportation, but there has to be an accept for the birthplace of said
faiths were specific to a geographical area alone.

19. Understanding why these faiths and beliefs were born craves a change
in the accepted human history that is taught today.

20. The exodus of humans from the African continent to the rest of the
world is a scientifically accepted fact.

21. The creation of the universe has also a scientific theory. The big
bang theory though not actually physically proven, gives a mathematical and
logical acceptable foundation.

22. The new environments humans found themselves in, craved a different
set of rules than those followed before. Temperature change, elevation,
signature and natural resources all played a part in defining these humans
within their own unique geographical area.

23. Religion came about as the cornerstone for these new societies to
survive. It was necessity for the success of said societies.

24. Religion has to contain the following aspects to survive within a
social structure :- The ultimate goal, i.e. eternal life, the ultimate
deterrent i.e. eternal damnation, a set of values to maintain the very
fabric of a social structure: The ten commandments of the Christian faith,
the Amesha Spentas of the Zoroastrian faith, the Three Jewels of Taoism, Li,
Hsiao, Yi, Xin, Jen and Chung of the Confucianism, Maimonides thirteen
statements of faith in the creed of traditional Judaism, the Zakat of the
Muslim faith, the Eight Fold Path of Buddhism, the book of laws contained
within the Hindu Smriti, and the Ten precepts of Shintoism. A place of
worship, where strict rules apply to the behaviour of individuals in situ. A
hierarchical structure within the belief to keep alive the human need for
power and achievement. A place of spiritual solace and sanctuary. A final
resting place for the deceased.

25. This removes the stigma of religious texts, being the word of a
deity, and applies that all religious texts are the word of men.

26. The belief that good and evil are premeditated acts or actions of
deities can be dismissed as superstitious nonsense.

27. Good and Evil are the opposites required for a spiritual plane to
exist. The humanistic hierarchical structure within the plane gives rise to
the existence of supernatural beings such as angels, archangels, demigods,
demons etc.

28. The only educated members of these societies were either leaders of
the land or members of a religious structure, thus the laws of the land were
governed and chosen by these select few.

29. Human pride, ignorance and a lust for power depicted the basis for
the laws, to ensure the continuation of the society but just as importantly
the wealth of the individuals involved.

30. The advent of weapons throughout history to attain wealth and power,
allowed the religious beliefs to spread beyond the local environment for the
first time.

31. In the last ten thousand years after the last ice-age, humans have
not only defined themselves as unique by their beliefs, but now have covered
the world with set borders.

32. Since the globe has a finite amount of land available, it must be
logical to deduce that when all the given areas were populated and accepted
beliefs were allowed to flourish, then conflict with neighbouring nations and
beliefs would eventually arise.

33. Warring between the various beliefs then became the standard method
humans used to survive and spread the word of their own individual belief.

34. Since the earliest recorded civilizations left clues to their
existence, present day humans have tried to fathom their structure,
traditions, cultures and ethics.

35. Human history is rife with faults, i.e. the world is flat, the Earth
is the centre of the universe etc. All proven within the latter part of our
history to be folly.

36. Many innocent humans died because they would not accept this as
truth. All of these follies were born from the governing bodies at the time.

37. What your environment had depicted to be true, no matter how wrong it
seems today, was not wrong at the time.

38. The governing bodies felt it a threat to the existence of the social
structure they were part of. To protect and survive their lifestyles and
values it was necessary for the demise of such thoughts and their sources.

39. Due to the potential demise of an accepted belief, defensive measures
became paramount. The advent of more and more destructive capable weapons
arose, to the stage where we can now not only secure the demise of a fellow
human belief but we can secure the demise of every single living organism on
the planet. All born from a human need to survive and a lust for power.

40. Due to the fact there is more than one belief, and every belief
contains the ultimate deterrent, it must be surmised that we are all going
to spend eternity in damnation of another belief.

41. If we continue in the fashion in which humankind has proven
throughout history to be true, i.e. war, to prove a point or change a
specific regional belief, it can only end in the total eradication of humans
from the face of the Earth.

42. Changing the foundational ethical values of every belief without
changing the actual diverse cultural beliefs must be the answer.

43. The changes involved are as follows :- (a) All deities represent the
alpha and omega within the spiritual plane they inhabit. I.e. God represents
human perfection and the devil human imperfection, i.e. in a Christian
belief. They are ideals and not physical entities. (b) A deity or deities
did not create the universe. (c) Immortality is a human desire based upon
folly, as the universe shows us the cycle of life and death on every level,
from simple molecules to stellar giants. (d) It is not wrong for another
geographically depicted faith to believe in a different set of ethic values.
(e) Humans always have needed weapons and still need them in the future.

44. Reinsertion of the belief with these added changes brings about a
unique opportunity for every single country's leader or leaders.

45. The basis for every single society's laws that exists today is based
upon the religious beliefs being taken as the word of a deity. Proving that
they are the word of man, in a struggle to survive in ancient times, we must
conclude that they are out dated and in desperate need of revision!

46. The population of every country in conjunction with their leaders can
now for the first time define themselves without the need for useless
worship of a deity. Still using the basis of all religions as they are, a
Christian would still be a Christian and a Muslim would still be a Muslim
but the need to war with each other due to faith is removed.

47. This for the first time can lead to a global co-operation without the
need for singular global faith.

48. Each individual country around the world will then have the
opportunity to prove to the rest of the world that their unique values and
culture are something to be proud of, without having the constant threat of
an opposing view leading to an armed confrontation.

49. All religious icons become what they really are: Icons! Not to be
worshipped or fought over, but seen as a necessity for the unique religious
beliefs to exist. (Present Arabic situations show a need for this.)

50. Man made objects, be they buildings, statues or even jewelled
treasures, will no longer depict the behavioural habits of religious
followers. The worship of these religious icons is not only folly, but can
also be considered as futile. Kissing of the Papal ring, bowing to a statue,
kneeling five times a day in prayer etc. Belong in the past where it was
deemed necessary, for a society to exist.

51. For the first time the leader or leaders of a specific country can
concentrate wholly upon domestic problems.

52. Even with the removal of conflicts earlier foundation, crime and the
constant development of human creativity to achieve goals outside of the
governing rules will continue to thrive.

53. Without the constant threat of armed conflicts, cooperation across
borders can then arise. Pooling resources from all over the world in
specific disciplines would be advantageous to the areas that are more prone
to be subjected to the wrath of natural disasters.

54. An international rescue foundation, containing experts in every form
of relief work can then be brought into existence. Each nation would
contribute what they deemed fit. Surplus military equipment and personnel
would be the major contributor to this force. It would be permanently manned
and ready to react to the disasters in question within a twenty-four hour
period.

55. The various armed services would not concentrate upon borderline
disputes but will be integrated into the already existing health and rescue
services unique to each country.

56. The medical staff within the armed forces can aid the already
undermanned health services, and in the case of a surplus amount of
resources available, they would be directed to the countries that through no
fault of their own do not possess the medical resources needed to bring
their country up to an acceptable standard.

57. Airborne forces can compliment the dwindling coastal and mountain
rescue resources world wide.

58. Naval forces can be used to protect natural resources i.e. reefs
under threat from human intervention. Excess vessels from naval usage can be
sunk in specific locations to promote the development of coral reefs.
Coastal patrolling to avoid unnecessary contamination of global waters. They
can also be used in global oceanographic research, giving the world for the
first time a better understanding of the two thirds of the global surface we
have not yet been able to research and develop to its fullest extent.

59. An overwhelming amount of excess ground forces from the armies of the
world will then be able to be pooled into the development of each country.
Using military engineers, transportation, technological know-how, and sheer
human derived determination, instead of just pouring huge amounts of money
into developing countries which always ends up being diluted in
administration costs, and or filtered away to enrich the lives of a few
chosen people.

60. Huge feats of engineering will no longer have to be the unique
property of developed countries. They can still define a nation as being
able to fulfil a human based need, but developing countries will also be
able to draw upon this resource.

61. Aviation both civil and military have shown the need for continual
development, as humans have a very limited capability within the "third or
Z" axis. This along with nuclear weapon development will be the foundation
of all future space development.

62. Asylum becomes a thing of the past, along with a reduction of racial
based conflicts. Every refugee should be able to return to their own
"homeland" without the fear of persecution.

63. Post generation refugees will be able put in a unique position where
they will be able to either return to their racial birthplace, proving once
and for all that they are proud of their inheritance. Or they can accept the
values and culture of their host nation and become totally integrated within
the social system their biological predecessors chose.

64. Members of a racially different background i.e. African Americans,
Latino Americans and Asian Americans etc. Can prove to the world that they
are proud of their inheritance, by actually giving up their existence in
their technologically advanced and pleasant surroundings, and move their
families to the countries they always boasted about. Helping their fellow
countrymen by physically being a contributor to the development of the
country.

65. The remaining members of the population (using the US as an example
only) will be all called Americans, without any prefix. These peoples can
then redefine to the rest of the world, what it means to be an American with
American values.

66. National pride between the countries around the globe can be
expressed in a myriad of ways without the need for war. Competition through
sport will have the same meaning as the Greeks originally depicted a return
to a value every nation can understand. Extreme forms of sport for
professionals can develop into new arenas. Competition through the internet
with the rise of multi-player games. Competition through international
accepted cultural differences, i.e. survival in hostile environments etc.

67. National traditions can then be expressed with a new understanding
without prejudice.

68. New exploration of sparsely populated areas without the constrictions
of politically based fear.

69. Present religious based constraints towards women must be redefined.
For the first time in human history women must be given the same rights as
men, equal in every aspect of existence. No longer will women have to take a
subservient role within a social structure.

70. Present religious based constraints towards homosexuality must also
be redefined. Homophobia will become a thing of the past, as humans accept
it as a human anomaly, born from a cessation of our species using sexuality
purely a form of survival.

71. Education will become global and eventually ignorance will disappear
as the single largest factor to the demise of cultures.

72. Reduced defence budgets will be able to fund global medical research.
AIDS, cancer and other fatal diseases will become a thing of the past.

73. Research into warning systems protecting huge numbers of humans
inhabiting areas subject to earthquakes, fires, flooding, volcanic
eruptions, landslides etc. Can be also funded by a reduction in a national
defence budgets.

74. International travel will no longer have to be based upon a VISA
system, promoting global understanding.

75. Students will be able to get first hand knowledge of cultures and
traditions that are not their own, in safety.

76. Though a necessary part of human development, wars have shown the
human race two vital aspects. In war there are no winners, only survivors,
and humans need weapons for defence.

77. Today's medical procedures and knowledge came not only from research
in the latter part of human existence, but from the miracles performed on
the various battlefields throughout history.

78. Educating the world's population to reduce the risk of over
population will for the first time be a reality. Birth control will be
unique to each nation or religious denomination.

79. The world's religious structure will be able to survive as humans
will always need spiritual guidance and solace.

80. Religious practitioners will still be needed as humans are unique in
one aspect : burial of our dead. This will enable the survival of every
unique tradition relating to this anomaly.

81. Human icons of faith i.e. the Pope, Iman leaders, Rabbi's, Swami's
etc. Will become the keepers of the said faiths. Leading by example and not
per versifying laws under a blanket of religion.

82. Country leaders will lead by example as ambassadors of their
respective countries, and not misuse their positions for personal
satisfaction.

83. Diplomatic immunity will become irrelevant and ambassadors of
different cultures will have to live under the rules of their host nations
or they will not exist. No longer will crimes committed under the protection
of diplomatic immunity, go unpunished.

84. Without the need for external armed forces to keep balance in an area
of disrepute, said resources can be redirected. Foreign soldiers will only
be in a theatre if there is a humanitarian reason i.e. food distribution,
medical supply distribution etc.

85. Countries with an abundance of natural resources can decide to either
re-distribute or trade the available excess without removing the basis for
their monetary stability.

86. A global social acceptance of human mortality, will give the worlds
population an understanding that life is not only the most precious thing
humans have on this earth, but it is a finite anomaly and should be
respected as such.

87. Due to the unknown parameter of a human lifespan, humans will be
given the chance to develop into a race that makes the most of life while
they still are able to. Not warring to ensure their unique convictions.

88. Euthanasia will no longer be the source of contention it has always
been. Keeping people alive because it is technologically possible should not
be the only premise for life. People suffering from a terminal illness will
no longer have to prolong their suffering because it suits a moral code. For
the first time humans will be able to make the decision if they wish to
carry on living or end their lives whilst they are still capable of rational
thought. The judicial premises will be unique to a cultural belief or
nation, but they will have to respect the wishes of the individual.

89. With the chance this theory allows, lessened political pressure will
allow exploration of coastal areas that are now a threat to historical
political stability i.e. the exploration of sunken citadels found off of the
coasts of India and Japan, which if proven to be correct will mean a total
change in human history. Proving yet again, the faults of mankind throughout
history are not to be buried or excused in political or religious quagmires,
but seen as faults of non perfect beings i.e. Human.

90. Collaboration of the major powers governing the planet i.e. G7
countries, without the added problem of religious and or political
confrontation, global problems that until now have been unattainable i.e.
foreign help in China, the former Soviet republics and politically sensitive
areas such as Cuba, etc. can now be a reality.

91. Circumcision of women especially throughout the African continent
will have to be revised as it is yet another male orientated religious
folly.
