Morality is a term describing principles of right and wrong, which society today has largely assumed are subjective—what one person believes is right may not be what another thinks. Objective Morality is a term referring to principles of right and wrong that are independent of personal views and whims—based on the objective world or the truth. In this latter sense, a right is an action or choice one person can make that does not harm another—simple enough for a child to understand.

The laws of objective morality are principles of truth that must be lived out or acknowledged in order to affect reality. That is to say, gravity does not require a person to implement an attractive force on an object. But morality requires a person to act in consent with a moral principle in order to be realized, which requires a mind capable of recognizing the metaphysical realities of consciousness. Only mind can see that committing harm is immoral. And only an active mind is capable of recognizing why behaving morally is beneficial for the self and others. Thus, when one follows an immoral order or a social trend, and mindlessly acts to harm another, they fail to realize their potentials of objective morality. In doing so, they reduce the freedom and abilities of all other people—not to mention the damage done to themselves and others.
The experiment detailed below highlights this principle of morality—laws of the universe that operate in the metaphysical realms of consciousness. As beings evolve and become more aware and conscious, they eventually develop the potential to act morally—which incorporates survival instincts of the past with the socializing features of conscious beings. Morality, in this sense, is those laws of consciousness that—when followed—enhance the coherence or harmony of a social group. The more moral a group of people is the greater their capacity to work together to achieve their individual and mutual desires.

The animal realms of mind are, for the most part, incapable of making a moral choice—dominated by individual survival instincts that make socialization difficult. And while human beings have the potential to act morally, realizing this potential requires an activated consciousness, else a person succumbs to their animalistic nature. Only a conscious person capable of thinking independently of the crowd can muster the courage to go against the social order and make a moral choice.
Sadly, due to mass-mind control and social programming, in addition to a population enamored by distractions of all sorts, the people have become mostly unconscious and immoral. People, at present, tend to follow the orders of so-called authorities or the social trend, committing harmful actions towards their fellows without a second thought, and usually without understanding why. In short, when people fail to develop their mind and empathetic capacities, they effectively act like animals and are incapable of realizing their desires in harmony with all other beings. They become shallow, egocentric, narcissistic, sociopathic and selfish, often ignoring the hardship of others to suit their own ends. Such individuals prove themselves to be untrustworthy and incapable of working with their fellows honorably because social contracts or agreements require trust. And when large populations of society act with selfish immorality, the potential of the whole species and community is greatly hindered. Enormous amounts of energy are needed just to maintain a semblance of order—all because the individual has failed to master their consciousness and the potentials inherent in the human order of life.

The less moral a people becomes, the less freedom is enjoyed by all in society. Thus, the more one becomes conscious, the more likely they are to become moral and the more freedom is gained by all as a result.
To the unconscious person, the idea that becoming more moral imparts more freedom seems absurd. But as morality increases, social coherence improves, and the restrictions of the whole social order are lessened. Eventually, if morality approaches levels of ultimacy, the individual becomes more skilled at realizing their desires without causing harm to others, enhancing social trust so that cooperation in all respects improves. The peak of such a society is a utopia where external restrictions on the individual—we know of as legal policies—disappear because each person exercises self-control. In the current social climate, such a utopia seems inconceivable, but anyone who takes the time to contemplate the principles of morality and the mechanics of social systems can easily see the merit in the premise of morality and social coherence.
The solution to the world's current plague of immorality, and the resulting need to oppress people with draconian legal policies is to raise the consciousness of all people so that they begin to act in concert with objective morality. The more fully and completely all people are elevated and supported so as to become wise and responsible, the more empowered, free, and uplifted the whole of society will be.

The Five Monkeys Experiment
An experimenter puts 5 monkeys in a large cage. High up at the top of the cage, well beyond the reach of the monkeys, is a bunch of bananas. Underneath the bananas is a ladder.
A modern version of the experiment
Monkeys at work
By the end of the experiment, none of the original monkeys were left and yet, despite none of them ever experiencing the cold, wet, spray, they had all learned never to try and go for the bananas.
Now what? A modern lesson
As Eddie Obeng finished the story, we all nodded knowingly. And yet two questions sprang to mind:
Did it ever happen?
If so, what can we do about it?
