The absence of rules equates to only 'one' and assures the most ‘level’
of all ‘playing fields’. The ‘cream of the crop’ always ‘rises to the top’.
The ‘cream’ is the ‘extreme and the ‘extreme’ is ‘mere survival’ or total
dominance; either of which is achieved at total disregard to the expense
of any other.
In the context of social evolution, arenas overlap and ultimately reveal connection to the whole.
A ‘player in the moment’ may fail to consider/appreciate the breadth of consequence in the
present, or the depth of influence over spans of time. Passion inspires the player while Justice
defines the spirit of any ‘game’.
The much-loathed ‘double-standard’...
The notion of differing rules applied to individuals seeking similar outcome within the same arena
runs contrary to conventional definitions of justice and equality... 'it just ain't fair'!
But, not all is as it seems…
Sometimes the absence of a double-standard is the true double-standard.
ONE STANDARD, ONE ARENA
In the absence of a self-sustained isolation (eg. Being dead), the individual claims space in the
greatest of all arenas by simply choosing to live. Regardless to scale, It is in the assimilation with
those in similar circumstance where-in the individual thrives or fails among those seeking same.
Absent virtue taught, or justice known, there are no rules...Absent outside perspective, all within
seek only to survive.
In the absence of multiple standards there exists only one, equating to a ‘free-
for-all’ environment. The inevitable consequence is one…left alone. No one
left with whom to ‘lord-over’ or share the spoils of conquest. Regardless to size
and scope, meaningless domination immediately precedes extinction within any
Mere survival holds merit only as an indispensable prerequisite to the development of virtue and
meaning. When survival becomes the sole standard to which the individual is held to serve,
Justice becomes an illusion founded in shifting alliances of no enduring merit.
Nothing will ever be ‘just’ if ‘something’ is never ‘not’...
As it pertains to humans, the eternal merit of universal principles trace
lineage to life on earth…arenas within arenas, within the arena of our
sphere- nested within a dynamic and endless Universe.
