Unformatted text preview: The Universal Principles The Universal Principles The first 11principles outline the concept of a self­conscious universe, define and characterize its ability to self­organize, and establish the relationship between its organizing consciousness and the matter of which the universe is composed. These are called the universal Universal Principles Universal Principles Self­organizational Consciousness 1. The universe exists as a single, dynamic interconnected structure of matter and energy, which has an inherent ability to self­organize. … Universal Principles Universal Principles Self­organizational Consciousness 1. …This implies that the universe possesses a non­physical “consciousness” of itself as a self­ organizing system, … Universal Principles Universal Principles Self­organizational Consciousness 1. (cont.) …as well as the means necessary to express this consciousness through the continuous creation and recreation of its own organization. Universal Principles Universal Principles Self­organizational Consciousness Traditionally, this self­ organizational consciousness has been called the universe’s universal intelligence. (Principle 1) 1. Principle 1 – There is a universal intelligence in all matter, continuously giving to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence and giving this intelligence its expression. Universal Principles Universal Principles Uniformity of Consciousness This self­organizational consciousness is continuously active throughout the whole universe, and equally active in any and all parts of the universe. (Principle 5) 2. Principle 5 – Force is manifested as organization in matter; all matter has organization, therefore there is universal intelligence expressed in all Universal Principles Universal Principles Sufficiency of Consciousness This self­organizational consciousness is always sufficient to create whatever organization is expressed. (Principle 7) 3. Principle 7 – The amount of intelligence for any given amount of matter is 100%, and is always proportional to its requirements. Universal Principles Universal Principles Cause and Effect, and Time This self­organizational consciousness is expressed as physical organization in substance (matter/energy) through cause and effect relationships (Principle 2) that 4. unfold over time. (Principle 3) Principle 2 – Every effect has a cause and every cause has effects. Universal Principles Universal Principles Energetic Interactionalism 5. These cause and effect relationships are created in substance by way of energy­ mediated interactions between material structures. (Principle 4) Principle 4 – Matter can have no organization without the application of force by intelligence. Universal Principles Universal Principles Information and Form 6. All energy­mediated interactions between material structures transmit information* and create relationships in matter. (Principle 10) *Information: the potential to form a specific relationship between interactive parts; potential form Principle 10 – The function of force is to unite intelligence and matter. Universal Principles Universal Principles Information and Form 6. …These relationships among material parts constitute the form* of the matter at any moment in time. (Principle 11) *Form: the specific nature of the organization of any material structure; information actualized Principle 11 – The function of matter is to express force . Universal Principles Universal Principles Form and Consciousness The universe’s self­organizational consciousness is the source of the information in any and all energy­ mediated interactions. (Principle 8) 7. Principle 8 – The function of intelligence is to create force. Universal Principles Universal Principles The Problem of Interference 8. During the transmission of information inherent in any energy­ mediated interaction, interference* can and may occur. (Principle 14) *Interference: alteration to the information being transmitted by the energy involved in an energy­ mediated interaction Universal Principles Universal Principles Universal Laws 9. At the inorganic level of organization, energy­mediated interactions are deterministic and unindividualized. Such interactions are commonly characterized as universal laws. (Principle 12) Principle 12 – The forces of universal intelligence are manifested as physical laws; they are unswerving and unadapted, and have no solicitude for the structures in which they work. Universal Principles Universal Principles Unital Consciousness 10. The self­organizational consciousness inherent to and active in the whole universe is necessarily also inherent to and active in any specific, self­organizing entity (unit) of the universe (unital consciousness) (Principle 13) Universal Principles Universal Principles The Perfect Expression of Form 11. For any specific structure to express its unital consciousness to its fullest, all the matter necessary to create it must be present, … Universal Principles Universal Principles The Perfect Expression of Form 11. … and all the energy­mediated interactions necessary to give it its specific form must occur without interference. (Principles 6, 11) Principle 6 – Any organized structure is a triunity having three necessary factors, namely intelligence, matter and the force which united them. Principle 11 – The amount of force created by intelligence is always 100%. The Biological Principles The Biological Principles The next 7 principles explore the topic of “life,” identifying the self­organizing potential of a living thing as its innate intelligence and describing the unique, constructive forces created within living things to maintain their organization. These are the biological Biological Principles Biological Principles Innate Intelligence 12. Each and every living organism has the self­organizational consciousness of the universe inherent to and active within it, which is its unital consciousness. (Principle 15.) Biological Principles Biological Principles Innate Intelligence 12. …Traditionally, this has been referred to as the organism’s innate intelligence. (Principles 16, 22) Principle 16 – A living thing has the intelligence of the universe inborn within its body, referred to as its innate intelligence. Principle 22 – There is 100% of innate intelligence in every living thing, the requisite amount, proportional to its requirements. Biological Principles Biological Principles Innate Intelligence Expressed 13. Life exists through the expression of this innate intelligence, (Principle 18) and each and every individual life derives its meaningfulness from the expression of this innate intelligence. (Principle 17) Principle 18 – Life is necessarily the union of this intelligence and the matter of a living thing, brought about by the creation of specific internal (innate) forces.. Biological Principles Biological Principles The Signs of Life 14. A living organism’s innate intelligence is expressed by the higher order interactive processes that characterize life itself, … Biological Principles Biological Principles The Signs of Life 14. …including self­assembly, self­ maintenance, self­transformation, self­perpetuation and self­directed matter/energy exchanges with the environment. Biological Principles Biological Principles The Signs of Life 14. …Traditionally, these have been referred to as the signs of life. (Principle 19) Principle 19 – The signs of life (assimilation, elimination, growth, reproduction, adaptability) are evidence of the innate intelligence of life. Biological Principles Biological Principles The Limits of Expression 15. A living organism’s innate intelligence is expressed through the medium of, and therefore within the limitations of, the atomic and molecular organization of the matter of which it is composed. (Principle 25) Principle 25 – The body’s innate intelligence adapts forces and matter for the body’s use as long as it can do so without breaking a universal law, in other words, its expression is limited by the limitations of matter. Biological Principles Biological Principles Normal Structure and Function 16. A living organism’s innate intelligence is the source of the information in any and all of the energy­mediated interactions that create intra­ and inter­cellular organization within that organism,… (Principle 20) Principle 20 – The mission of the body’s innate intelligence is to maintain Biological Principles Biological Principles Normal Structure and Function 16. …thus defining what is normal structure and function for that organism. (Principles 26, 27) Principle 26 – The body’s innate intelligence is always normal and its function is always normal. Principle 27 – The forces the body’s innate intelligence creates are never intended to injure or destroy the living thing in which they work. Biological Principles Biological Principles Normal Adaptation 17. A living organism’s innate intelligence is the source of the information necessary to reorganize the matter and energy it assimilates from its environment into patterns of structural relationships (forms) and energetic interactions (biological Biological Principles Biological Principles Normal Adaptation 17. …that maintain the identity of the organism (Principle 23) and thus are constructive to the organism. (Principle 28) Principle 23 – The function of the body’s innate intelligence is to adapt universal forces and matter for use in the body, so that all parts of the body will have coordinate action for mutual benefit. Principle 28 – In order to carry on the universal cycle of life, universal forces are destructive, unless they can be adapted, and innate forces constructive, unless they suffer interference, to a specific living thing. Biological Principles Biological Principles Health 18. When the information an organism’s innate intelligence creates is expressed without interference, it produces the organized relationships between the constituent parts of the organism (coordination),… (Principle 24) Biological Principles Biological Principles Health 18. …and an organized relationship between the organism and its environment (adaptation). (Principle 32) These normal relationships constitute the life and health of the organism. Principle 32 – The Law of Demand and Supply is existent in the body in its ideal state; wherein the nerves transmit messages from the body, concerning its needs, to the brain, which acts as the central processing unit for the body’s innate intelligence, and from the brain to the body to The Chiropractic Principles The Chiropractic Principles The last four principles relate the preceding metaphysical biological model to its primary expression in humans (and other vertebrates). They posit the significance of the nerve system in self­awareness and self­regulation, and the significance of potential malfunction in the intimate anatomical/ physiological/bio­mechanical The Chiropractic Principles The Chiropractic Principles They are referred to as the “chiropractic principles” because they are the only part of this syllogism that specifically underlies chiropractic practice. The universal and biological principles, on the other hand, are applicable to developing an appropriate, vitalistic perspective on human existence in any and all areas of human functioning and interpersonal relationships. Chiropractic Principles Chiropractic Principles The Role of the Nerve System 19. The innate intelligence of a living organism with a nerve system utilizes the energetic interactions mediated over the nerve system (afferent and efferent nerve impulses) to create organism­wide self­ awareness of its own internal and external environments (self­ Chiropractic Principles Chiropractic Principles The Role of the Nerve System 19. …and to create organism­wide self­awareness of its own internal and external environments (self­ perception), and to create organism­ wide coordination internally and adaptation externally (self­ regulation). (Principle 31) Principle 31 – Some of the forces the body’s innate intelligence creates Chiropractic Principles Chiropractic Principles Neurological Interference 20. During the transmission of afferent and/or efferent nerve impulses, neurological interference* can and may occur. (Principle 29) *Neurological interference: distortion of the information being transmitted by afferent and/or efferent nerve impulses Principle 29 – There can be interference with the transmission of innate Chiropractic Principles Chiropractic Principles Diminished Expression 21. Neurological interference will tend to distort an organism’s self­ perception (afferently) and/or an organism’s self­regulation (efferently), diminishing the expression of its own innate intelligence. (Principle 30) Chiropractic Principles Chiropractic Principles Vertebral Subluxation 22. Vertebral subluxations, to the extent that they interfere with neurologically transmitted information, will cause afferent incoordination (misperceptions of the organism’s external environment, and/or its own internal Chiropractic Principles Chiropractic Principles Vertebral Subluxation …and/or efferent incoordination (malfunction internally and/or mal­ adaptation externally). (Principle 33) Traditionally, efferent incoordination has been referred to as dis­ease. (Principle 30) Principle 33 – Interference with transmission in the body is often directly or indirectly due to subluxations in the spinal column. Principle 30 – Interference with the transmission of innate forces causes ...
