Values form the foundation of the Lionsberg System and the New Vision and Plan, guiding the actions and decisions of Citizens as they work together to confront and overcome the Meta Crisis, halt , and co-create the New World. These universal values are essential for fostering a unified, collaborative, and transformative movement that embraces the diverse skills, knowledge, and passion of all citizens in pursuit of a more just, regenerative, and thriving future for All.
These are reflected in The Lionsberg System of Values.
These values serve as a compass for Citizens as they navigate the complex landscape of the Meta Crisis, guiding their actions, decisions, and interactions within the Lionsberg Platform and The Great Game of Lionsberg. By embodying these values and integrating them into their daily lives, Citizens play a vital role in the co-creation of the New World, working together to confront and overcome the Meta Crisis and bring about a brighter, more flourishing future for All.
The foundational values upon which the System rises must beand .
They also must be integrated by a Total Nested Hierarchy of Values, which must be unified and integrated by a single highest overarching and uniting Meta Value. In the Lionsberg System, this is the One that transcends and generates All.
By maintaining the Meta Value at the level of the Absolute, we can articulate what we perceive to be the Core Values that emanate from It in our own time and language, while affording freedom for community members around the world to explore, ponder, apply, and articulate their own local language and understanding.
There are certain sets of behaviors that bring forth That Which The Community Values.
These sets of behaviors can forge more of less complete Pattern Languages that any member of the Community can instantiate / embody in their own time and space.
The total set of All members of the Community acting out the Code / Pattern simultaneously is what creates a cohesive, integrated, and well-ordered society.
Generally Values are defined on two poles: Values, and.
The Patterns associated with bringing forthcan be thought of as / ...
It is only by entirely reintegrating our Total Nested Hierarchy of Values, and fundamentally and foundationally realigning our notion of Value with it, that we can bring forth the New Economy and the New Society of the New World.
Across multiple traditions, the "Spirit" of the Meta Value has been most commonly articulated with what in English we might call Unconditional Love, which is associated with the Spirit or Nature of That Which Creates and Sustains Life and Consciousness. In other languages, such as Greek that undergirds many systems of philosophy and religion, a more accurate and nuanced word might be . Agape is used in texts such as the Bible for the reciprocal, unconditional, and ultimate Love of One for All, and All for One. Or said differently of a Creator for Its Creation, and of Creation for Its Creator.
From this single lens of Unconditional, Ultimate, and All-Encompassing Love, every other Universal Value and Good can be articulated, and apparently contradictory or competing Values balanced and held in Harmony.
It is the Powerful Motive Force and Intention of Unconditional Love, as a Living Spirit in Action, that is what reconciles, coheres, and orders within Itself what otherwise may be Perceived as contradictory Values.
One level up the hierarchy of abstraction, one understands that One is Love, and therefore the Meta Value is One, inclusive of the Spirit of the One that creates and sustains All. This understanding fundamentally unifies the Deepest Level of Abstraction in One Thing that coheres within Itself All other Things.
The Spirit / Logos / Logic of the One is the Spirit / Logos / Logic of the System, to extent that our Current Best Understanding is capable of reflecting that Ultimate Value and Good.
The only thing that Humans Act As If they Value more than Life and Consciousness is the Source / Mystery that is creating and sustaining Life and Consciousness.
What is more Valuable, the Creation / Manifestation, or the Creator / Manifestor?
What is more Valuable, the Golden Egg, or the Goose that Eternally Lays the Golden Eggs?
One does not need to Understand the Mystery from which Life and Consciousness flows to humbly and reverentially relate to It as the Most Valuable Thing. This is as much of a Logical / Rational / Philosophical conception as it is an idea articulated through religion.
Secular and religious philosophers alike understand the need for any System to be ordered and cohered by One Thing outside of it.
The Absolute does not need to be articulated or concretized, and in fact should not be articulated or concretized, in order to be related to as the One Thing that orders and coheres All things within Itself.
The Question that leads to the articulation of the Total Nested Hierarchy of Values is perhaps something like: What is the Spirit or Essence of that which creates and sustains Life and Consciousness? What does it Value and consider Good? What does it consider Anti-Good?
This question can be held alike by religious and non-religious thinkers. The Logic is the same.
If we desired to create, cultivate and sustain Life and Consciousness, what would we do?
We can guess at what the Source and Sustainer of Life and Consciousness would do by putting ourselves in Its shoes, or by localizing the question and looking at what we do when we Love something and deeply desire for it to develop into the fullness of its unique potential and flourish.
From this standard, Good can be defined as (something like):
that which causes Life and Consciousness to develop into the fullness of their Potential and flourish in harmony.
that which helps, and does not harm.
Help what? Harm what?
In a complex adaptive System of Systems, this question must be answered in terms of Relationship.
Something is Good which Helps, and Does Not Harm, every higher order System that it is a part of, and every lower order System that is a part of it.
At a minimum, this creates an affirmative duty of every Individual to Love, Help, and Not Harm every element of ones Self, as well as all Relations, Society, the Living System, and the One from which All these elements flow.
Across time and space, what appears to be a core set of Universal Values has emerged.
We know they are universal because individually we each can find them written on our hearts, and whispered to us by our conscious. We also know they are universal because we can find them written in the sacred scriptures and traditions around the world.
Together these whispers and writings forge alaid around the world and throughout history, that when followed always lead back to Life and its Source.
They can be called Values, they can be called Principles, they can be called Wisdom.
Together, they provide a complete philosophy and ethic for life, that if enacted simultaneously around the world would cause the universal Symphony to be experienced.
The timeless Wisdom, Principles, and Values that cause people and societies to flourish are not religious or philosophical abstractions. They are keys to life and death, heaven and hell, right here on earth.
They exist to help individuals and societies understand how integrate and order themselves, and how to live their lives.
They tell us how to move away from our present suffering and dysfunction towards something better.
They tell us how to avoid being swept off the path on our individual and collective Quest to climb the sacred mountain towards our Destiny.
They are the safeguards, the guardrails, and the boundaries. They are the Universal Law that enables us to know what we can expect from one another as we labor together towards the Goal.
And they are inviolable if we want to dwell in peace and harmony, for neither our internal conscience nor our external wars will allow us to rest until we harmonize ourselves with One Another.
And if 8 or 10 billion of us want to harmonize ourselves with One Another, the only possible and logical Way is to All harmonize our Selves to the One Thing that unites us All.
What we all have in common is Life and Consciousness.
And the only greater commonality and Value than Life and Consciousness is the Mystery of the Source from which All generations of Life and Consciousness flow.
The only possible logic that can solve the equation and lead to our children and grandchildren flourishing in harmony is if we All harmonize our Selves to One Logic of Love.
We recognize your unique identity and inherent value as a human being. We Love You. We Love Your Children and Grandchildren. We Love Life. We Love Consciousness. We Love the Source and Sustainer of Life and Consciousness. We desire for you, for your family, for your tribe, for your people to develop into the fullness of your unique potential and flourish in service of All things striving towards the fullness of their unique potentials.
We recognize that we cannot develop into the fullness of our unique potential, unless and until you develop into the fullness of your unique potential.
We recognize that you cannot develop into the fullness of your unique potential, unless and until we develop into the fullness of our unique potential.
We recognize that neither of us can develop into the fullness of our potential, unless we Help One Another.
We would like to help you. We would like to serve you. We would like to be in Right Relationship with you.
To harmonize ourselves with One Another, the Living System, and the One Thing that unites All things, we pledge to do our best to uphold our shared universal values.
At various levels of detail and abstraction, these can be described with words like:
Various lists of universal values also often contain references to leadership, power, and resources.
In the Lionsberg System, these are not viewed as values or goals in and of themselves, but rather as neutral tools / Potential that can be developed wisely and as necessary to produce Throughput of The Goal.
