I don't believe there is any objective moral truth. Infact, I struggle with the concept of objective knoweldge entirely. The problem that science faces when it attempts to explore the true nature of the universe, or to know anything for that matter, is that it is only using physical manifestations and observation. Subject-object divide.
"It's like trying to look at your own head with your eyes. The best you can do is to observe the reflection in a mirror, and draw conclusions from a two dimensional representation of your three dimensional head. You will never be able to see your own head with your own eyes."
The one thing that seems to really resonate within me is the zero-point field, a theory in quantum physics that attempts to prove that there exists an energy field that shows all things are connected.
So If I subscribe to the idea that everything is connected (and I do) then when I really look at the bigger-big picture, everything is one. And if everything is one.. then any attempt to distinguish this from that is an illusion. An illusion I believe is created by the human brain processor, in an attempt to understand self, when self is actually a consciousness not created by the brain. And there is quite a bit of evidence to support this- when you start looking at mind over matter, brain activity in placebo affects and hypnosis, and even people that are flatlining in highly monitored states, only to go on and recall experiences outside the body that do not align with DMT release and firing neurons.
"To set up what you like against what you dislike - this is the disease of the mind"
Dam skippy. It's an illusion, too.
So what your doing when ever you create a preference for basically anything.. (be that good/bad, sweet/sour, individualism, id-ego-egosim constructs) is attempting to disconnect from all-connected. And I just don't buy it. I can't proove it, obviously.. but clearly I am skeptical of ALL proofs.
Yet I am still forced to experience with my mind, in a body, on a material plane. If we are all connected, the collective unconscious, then what is the point? What purpose could this serve? Many modern spiritualists will say, we are here to experience what we are NOT, to understand what we are. And that doesn't really make sense if we are everything.
Meh. I'm not sure if I conveyed this as well as I could *shrugs* but sticking to the original points... I believe I do fall under the oh-so-limiting vocab of "moral nihilism." And I just want to add, that I do NOT believe moral nihilism is simply a copout to justify crude or apathetic behaviors. I think there is a much bigger picture being over-looked by a few here. I am very interested in thoughts that others might have in HOW you can morally align yourself if you believe in a collective unconscious.
Edit: Is morality not really just a complex code that aids in survival?
