Titanians FAQ

DEFINITIONS:

B.O.R.G.:  is an acronym for the 3 institutions to which humanity turns to solve its problems. The BORG stands for Banks, Organized Religion and Government.

Banks: are Banking Systems, like the Federal Reserve System and International Monetary Fund (IMF) and other similar central banks worldwide.

Bureaucracy:  is the systematic elimination, destruction, or avoidance of corrective feedback.

Cartel: A shared monopoly that exists only to maximize its members’ profits and maintain their monopoly status in the marketplace.

Comforting Liesare the most basic propaganda created by the BORG used to control human interaction by  auto-domesticating the slaves to thinking a certain way.  The BORG uses force and violence to convince the masses these the lies are true and a mass delusion occurs. Those who believe these lies, are considered to be Jacked-in to the Matrix. The Comforting Lies, also known as the “pernicious fallacies”, comprise the real Matrix that dominates humanity at the end of the 21st century.

Creativity: is the discovery of new true information.  Creativity is the product of Ethical awareness and Intelligence. Mathematically C = E * I.

Ethic:  has 2 parts; the first is a value, which is simply a description of what one wants more of in one’s life.  The second is a belief, or system of beliefs, that defines how one must act or behave in order to attain more of the resource defined as the value to be maximized.

Ethical Act: An ethical act is one that increases the creativity, or one or more of its logical equivalents, for at least one person, including the person acting, without limiting or diminishing the creativity of anyone.

Garcia, John David: Businessman, Scientist and Author who’s experiments into Creativity and Ethics, unlocked the secrets of non-bureaucratic organizational model known as the Octet – and since evolved into the Octologue.

Government: See – Power Brokerage Cartel

Intelligence: the ability to predict or control events in the real world.

In-Valid Ethic: One that leaves unchanged or diminishes the associated value when one acts in accordance with the associated Belief System.

Logical Equivalents of Creativity: this refers to values that always increase when creativity is increased; and are always limited or diminished when creativity is limited or diminished. Among these are Love, Awareness, Objective Truth and Personal Evolution.

Mala in se are acts generally recognized to be evil in and of themselves.

Mala prohibita are acts which are not evil in and of themselves; but which have been forbidden because someone wants to impose their will upon someone else.

Morality: The commitment to acting Ethically.

Octologue: A group of individuals, who agree to maximize their creativity, by agreeing to an ethical purpose and all group decisions are to be unanimous.  More than 20 years of scientific experimentation has shown the most creative groups are optimized with 8 individuals: 4 men and 4 women.

Organized Religion: refers to religious organizations big enough to influence legislation.

Power Brokerage: The “industry” wherein those wielding power over others share or delegate portions of that power with/to others in exchange for favors. Since the exercise of power over others is only ethical in self defense, it follows that power brokerage is inherently unethical. Governments are, by their nature, power brokerage cartels –  and hence fundamentally unethical.

Titania: is an Ethical Creative Society – based upon the Titanian Code of Honor.

Titanian Ethic: An act is good if it benefits at least one person, including the person acting, and harms no one.

Utilitarian Ethic: An act is good if it benefits more people than it harms.

Valid Ethic: One that actually increases the ethic’s value when one acts in accordance with the ethic’s Belief System.

Ethics: Titanian

 

Titanian Ethic

Ethic 2: An act is good if it benefits at least one person, including the person acting, and absolutely harms no one.

We seem to have forgotten to name the specific value to be maximized and to define the belief system that must be associated with it for the ethic to be valid under all circum-stances.  So let’s tighten up our definition.  The word “benefit” is simply too general a value, because some perceived benefits lead to unwanted social consequences; thus contradicting the intent of the ethic.  Values such as wealth, profit, political power, and even happiness suffer from this weakness.

On the other hand, consider the values of creativity, love, awareness, and personal evolution.  These values are particularly interesting because an act that increases any one of them also increases the others; while an act that limits or diminishes any one of them also limits or diminishes all of the others.  Thus these values, and perhaps many others, may be said to be logically equivalent to one another.  So let’s redefine The Titanian Ethic as follows:

An act is ethical if it increases creativity, or any of its logical equivalents, for at least one person, including the person acting, without limiting or diminishing creativity for anyone.

This ethic, it turns out, is valid, in that its adoption by an individual or a group invariably results in an increase in creativity and its logical equivalents.  For convenience, let’s refer to this ethic from now on as E+or as the E+ Ethic.  It is worth noting at this point that all prosperity and happiness can be causally traced back to someone’s creativity or one or more of its logical equivalents.

It should be noted that there is a second set of resources (values) that are necessary, but not sufficient, for the maximization of creativity.  These include such things as freedom, honesty, empathy, conscience, and the teaching of true information to people who habitually act ethically.  These are all ethical resources or creativity enhancers, but they are not logical equivalents of creativity, so they are not mentioned explicitly in the definition of E+. Surprisingly, if one of these values is made the value to be maximized in the definition of an ethic, the ethic that results is not valid.

Now that we have identified a set of values that can be the basis of a valid ethic, let’s explore the requisite belief system that goes with it.  By logic alone we can infer from the definition of E+ the following ethical principles.

1. To act ethically, each person must strive to maximize creativity and its logical equivalents.

2. Ethical actions always increase someone’s creativity without destroying, limiting, or diminishing anyone’s creativity.

3. Unethical means can never achieve ethical ends and always have unethical consequences.

4. Means which are not ethical ends in themselves are never ethical.

5. It is unethical to tolerate unethical, predatory, or parasitic behavior and therefore inaction in the presence of these behaviors is unethical.

6. It is ethical to learn and unethical to be certain; and therefore it is ethical to doubt.

7. The exercise of power over others is never ethical except in the case of self defense against the imminent aggression of others.

8. The taking of another’s property by theft, fraud, deceit, or coercion of any kind is never ethical.

9. No individual can legitimately delegate to another, nor to a group of any kind, authority that the individual does not himself/herself possess.

10. All laws, rules, and regulations are ethical and legitimate only insofar as they forbid and/or intervene in the commission of acts that are unethical, predatory, or parasitic.  Government edicts that violate this principle are not truly laws at all.

When you choose to accept the validity of the E+ Ethic, the logical consequence is to agree with these ten principles, because are the definition of the ethic.  Conversely, when you disagree with any of these principles you either choose not to accept the ethic or you just don’t understand it, more likely the latter.
