It has been observed that an inadequate understanding of the fundamental difference between aesthetics and ethics brings about an inevitable collapse of cultures. This ignorance, in part, has been forced upon the general Western populace through an illogical mixture of religious and politically organized core curriculum studies that dominate the philosophies of Western scientific culture. Spin doctoring to present illogical aesthetics as passionately held ethical beliefs, brings about an unsustainable concept of the living process, leading to social disintegration.
Because of this problem, the fate of global civilization now hangs in the balance. Although the difference between aesthetics and ethics is now measurable, the present panic obsession with failing global economic rationalism prevents genuine investigation on this issue. However, the newly emerging chemistry of quantum biology as a medical science, is revealing the nature of the technologies needed for the healthy or ethical betterment of the global human condition.
Quantum mechanics includes the property called 'Observer Participancy'. It is necessary for someone looking through a powerful microscope at a very small part of the fabric of the material universe to use light in order to see it. Because the light can alter the structure of the small fabric being looked at, the observer is considered to be participating in the structure of the universe. Quantum biology is about how the energies of the material universe entangle with the optics of Plato's spiritual, or holographic reality in order for creative consciousness to evolve.
It is quite acceptable to associate ethics with this process of evolving consciousness. That idea was basic to the ancient Greek life-science called the 'Science for Ethical Ends', which was also associated with the 3rd Century BCE Greek 'Science of universal Love'. Recently, a new chemistry of life was discovered, which its three Nobel laureates in Chemistry discoverers refer to as Fullerene Chemistry. Pagan Platonic ethical science is now fundamental to the discovery of their new medical science, because Buckminster Fuller derived his life-science engineering principles from it.
Harvard University's Novatis Professor, Amy Edmonson, in her online book titled 'A Fuller Explanation-The Synergetic Geometry of R. Buckminster Fuller', published in 1987, explains that Fullerene chemistry is directly associated with Platonic ethics. On page 36 of her book, Professor Edmonson writes that Fuller derived his human survival mathematics from ancient Greece. On the following page is a subtitle, 'Plato's Discovery' in which the ancient mathematics used by Fuller are presented in detail.
The foundation of Western culture's ethical disposition was constructed upon the aesthetics postulated by Immanuel Kant. This can no longer be considered to be a logical concept. Several independent corrections to Kant's logic have taken place, in which the upgrading of his 'Aesthetics' resulted in quantum mechanics being advanced into the quantum biology. One of the scientists who pioneered this process was the 19th Century mathematician Bernard Bolzano, considered to be one of the world's greatest logicians.
Edmund Husserl, in his 'Prolegomena to a pure logic' in 1900, was familiar with Bolzano's 'Theory of science', which was a correction to Kant's 'Aesthetics'. Bolzano's logic led to the discovery of fractal logic ethics. The people who helped to frame 20th Century science such as Benoit Mandelbrot, Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein were quite unable to grasp Bolzano's genius understanding about fractal ethics. Now that Bolzano's logic is an integral part of the now accepted universal Platonic-Fullerene holographic reality, the nature of incredible new human survival technologies have become obvious.
In 1972 Dr Candace Pert discovered the Molecule of Emotion, from which the nature of the entanglement of the material universe with the spiritual holographic reality can be readily deduced. The original Western life-science was correct, ethics belongs as a force to generate healthy biological growth and development through space-time. Proof of this fact was discovered during the 1980s by the science-Art Center in Australia. Its discovery of a life-force governing optimum biological growth and development through space-time was reprinted in 1990 from the 20th Century World literature by the world's largest technological research institute, IEEE Milestone Series in Washington. Immanuel Kant's 'Aesthetics' can only generate ethical intuitions that provide inspiration to make practical use of ethical information, generated through evolving space-time, for the betterment of the human condition.
It is now possible to realize how aesthetics can be used to create cultural chaos. For example, the aesthetics of Thanksgiving Day when families come together to celebrate family life, is an accepted inspirational concept. However, thanking a God for receiving food, when millions of inarticulate children throughout the world are starving, implies a rather unethical understanding of the Classical Greek science of universal love.
Religious politicians use aesthetic spin doctoring in order to claim that their aesthetic reasoning is the basis of fundamental ethical knowledge. An example of this is Cambridge University's continual reprinting since 1932 of the philosopher, FM Cornford's, essay, titled 'Before and after Socrates', in which Plato is considered to be one of the greatest fathers of the church. That concept remained in use as prescribed core curriculum student studies throughout the world up until the present time. It is unethical nonsense, because Platonic mathematics was outlawed by the Church, as the work of the Devil, under the governorship of Pope Cyril of Alexandria in 415, and that has never been repealed.
