Simplified Theory of Moral Sentiments

SORAnomics  (our proposed alternative to Economics) is based on David Hume'sScience of Man, which we compile intoThe Metaphysics of Things as a complement to the current sciences.

If Science were the wings of an aircraft, then the Metaphysics of Things would be its engine, just as the Supreme Entity is the driving force of everything. An aircraft with only wings without an engine can glide only a short distance. But an aircraft without wings but with only a very powerful engine, as a rocket, can reach the stars. For this reason, we use the enlightened metaphysics (not the vulgar one) to overhaul the current sciences and systems in place, in the same way that a World War I biplane is overhauled into a modern stealth fighter to increase its utility:

  • We overhaulEconomics of Samuelson intoSORAnomics of Adam Smith, by using Smith's effort theory of value, undoing the errors of Mercantilism, to prevent economic crises, poverty, and inequality
  • We overhaulPhysics intoSuperphysics, by regarding electrons as positively charged and protons as negatively charged, undoing theerror of Benjamin Franklin in order to lay the foundation for anti-gravity as done by levitating yogis, and faster-than-light-travel as done by UFOs
  • We overhaulReligious morality into adharmic morality, by using Smith'simpartial spectator implemented through animpartial artificial intelligence

Smith's moral system implements the design of the invisble hand of Jupiter, and is the foundation of his proposed economic system which spreads prosperity and happiness for all entities, even plants and animals. For this reason, hisTheory of Moral Sentiments has been simplified to be easier to understand.

This outline aims to guide decision-makers faced with moral dilemmas so that their decisions will more likely benefit society instead of causing harm. The main difference between our moral system from those of Kantianism, Objectivism, Utilitarianism, Christianity, Islam, etc. is that ours is based onfeelings as stated by David Hume. Our focus is to establish the correct understanding of our own feelings, through an impartial spectator as stated by Adam Smith and Eastern philosophy, so that the reasoning or logic that springs from it will be moral, or have a good effect on everyone and everything.
