#Universal #Ethics: 2017-12-17

• The empirical basis for ethics is the principle of life.
• Starting with “life” as the first principle of ethics or absolute ideals, one can develop an ethical system that works for all human cultures.
• For example, what serves life is seen as the ethical and what is anti-life is seen as the unethical.
• The life principle has two supporting principles: the principles of light and love.

• For some, there will remain the philosophical dispute or problem as to the nature of the principle of life—is it life in this world or eternal life with God; but ethics finally has a foundation from which to develop.
