ETHICS is the highest science (knowing, knowledge) because it is concerned with survival. Those whose ethics are not perfect cannot escape a level of being which has death as one of its concomitants. Those whose ethics are perfect do not die. They finish their last birth on earth by leaving the physical body behind to be recycled. They move on to eternal life. Why is this? Because everything is One and all things are part of that One. Everything we do to another, is actually done to us. If it is a negative action, it pulls us down to what appears as a separate material existence. In this, we die with the body. Over and over again. If our actions towards others are positive, we experience the positive result of being drawn closer and closer to the Centre of the One. This is a state of bodiless eternal life.
The fundamental, easily understood ethic is, therefore, Don’t do to others what you would not like done to yourself.
