Golden Rules and Silver Rules of Humanity: Universal Wisdom of Civilization
The Golden/Silver Rule precepts and associated maxims are the pillars upon which most major religious and philosophical traditions, moral and legal codes, are founded, that also relate to science. Dating back almost to the beginnings of civilized culture in ancient Africa over 5,000 years ago, and elsewhere, the rules are among the earliest oral civil precepts/codes to be committed to print regarding appropriate social conduct across most situations. This wisdom inquiry offers, some background, an integrative theory for most of the versions of the precepts found amongst the worlds cultures, in addition to, some newly created reciprocity labels, and maxims, based on mutuality, generosity, altruism and ethical levels. A draft integration of some new mutuality rules, and interaction relations, for science, religion, and philosophy, are offered, along with some sample optimums for various life style types on an altruism-egoism ethics scale.
