Seeking the Ultimate Axiom

“A moral system valid for all is basically immoral.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

Morals can be defined as the principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behaviour. They have evolved over thousands of years, and are deeply rooted in the fabric of human existence. They were designed in order to make community living easier for man, as community living is the most convenient form of living. People would much rather buy tomatoes than cultivate them. I think that’s something most of us might believe.

But, when something designed to make life more convenient, makes it less convenient and more binding, is it serving its purpose anymore?

The answer to that is, obviously not.

And that’s because there was something already messed up in the wiring.

The idea of establishing such strict boundaries is flawed in the first place because the basis for their existence has evolved from essentially no rationale. There is NO universal idea of what is right and what is wrong; simply because the only universal truth that exists is you are alive right this second (at least that’s what your mind lets you believe). Everything else is an interpretation of an idea.

Mind you, an idea someone else derived from their understanding of the workings of the world.

In this equation of life, we have not been able to find x. And until we find that x, the idea of having an unspoken code of conduct everyone is expected to follow is illogical, and irrational, thereby negating the very foundation of practical human existence: rationality.
