Very shortly, I will give a brief description of each of the 37 natural laws, that Atheists in the Topix Forum may be better prepared for me.
It is a do-or-die affair. This is what I have been living for. It is not a case of revelation, It is a case of noetic experience, illumination interlude and personal conviction.

NightSerf,
I am neither a prophet nor do I operate on belief.
I don't see any darkness in the world. The world and everything therein keep evolving higher and higher with such a periodicity, that at each point of periodic transition, the uninformed Atheists may adduce a randomness of existence.
But note that the kind of dry logic that does no one any good, is not powerful enough to embrace the totality of the infinite, but a mixture of sane logic, nuomenal experience, phenomenal observation and intuitive conviction of the earthly man.
May it be known that the universality of the feeder concepts back of this inchoate philosophy of life, accurately earns it the name 'Universal Religion'.
Be conscious of the fact that dogmatic inflexibility is the trademark of belief, while reason naturally changes side when confronted by a more reasonable reason. And so, rather than presumptuously going ahead to smother a loftier thought, we should all, without reservation, carry shoulder-high the light-shedding wisdom.
Scaritual hit the nail on the head. I've avoided joining in on the "word salad" criticism, not because it was invalid, but because it was a distraction from the main issues. But this kind of scattergun approach to writing that injects inflated vocabulary only works when the recipients' can be inundated with words they don't understand.

That's not the case here. One of the principles of good writing is to avoid wordiness--unnecessary verbiage. A good writer uses the simplest language that the ideas being expressed necessitate. He does not show off or try to bamboozle his audience with excessive complexity. You do, and now that I am discontinuing my conversations with you, I feel compelled to call you on it. Your style looks like an attempt to dominate the reader. The excess verbiage is a part of the lack of organization that it is, ironically, attempting to mask.

In good writing flows smoothly from sentence to sentence and from paragraph to paragraph. Yours does not, which is why I described it a scattergun approach. If you don't see that when you read your text over before posting (you do, don't you?), then you need to think more about what constitutes good writing. I highly recommend On Writing Well by William Zinsser or Elements of Style by Strunk and White. Or both.

Good writing is not about grammar and spelling, important as they are. It's about clarity. A piece that, for all of its minor errors, is easily understood by its readers is far superior to one with impeccable grammar and spelling that presents a much greater challenge to readers than the idea in it necessitate. In some cases, text that would have been subjected to the red ink of your high school English teacher is more expressive that the "corrected" version would be. When that happens, it is still good writing.

With that bit of gratuitous advice, I conclude my conversation with you, wishing you the best of luck in all of your endeavors.

THIS is what you've been living for?

How tragic.

By the way...you can describe these "natural laws" all you want...at the end of the day, they are just your opinion and nothing more.

But, hey, enjoy the mental masturbation.

It wasn't meant to be climatical. It was query and my own observations of a topix poster. Does it in some fashion pertain to you? Might you covertly be that detestable idiot who was mentioned?

NightSerf,
If I could tolerate you so far, considering your sensibly meaningful posts, I think courtesy demands that you also bear with any of the human failings on my side.
As I am not a person of fighting disposition, let me offer my olive branch at this point in time.
You may review all your previous posts and you will understand what I am trying to chip across to you.
Thank you.

1. intro: natural laws are those natural principles that operate on all things independent of man. they are inviolable, permanently constant and have no exceptions.
2. law of change: that everything keeps changing and moving from one state,space, form or time to another.
3. of opposites: that everything is dual in nature, i.e. everything stands in opposition to another.
4. karma: which prevents one from reaping what one has not sown; that equal action attracts equal reaction.
5. economy of life (death): that death eventuates to prevent the life of man from wasting away when the purpose for living has beem exhausted.
(to be contd)

6. Reincarnation: prevents the loss of the soul essence, to further reinforce the Law of Immortality.
7. Parsimony: that every excess is closely counterbalanced by a proportional lack; that nothing can be wasted in life.
8. Similarity: that similar relations are similarly affected.
9. Sympathy: that harmonizes all of existence together through adhesion and cohesion, i.e. blending by attraction of related properties.
10. Continuity: that in the infinite chain of existence, there is never a broken link.
11. Balance or Averages: which stabilizes everything as it should be; that there is no gain or loss, increase or decrease of anything in nature.
12. Universal Interdependency: that all things are mutually dependent on one another.
13. Purposive (Teleological) Occurrence: that there is no accidental or chance occurrence in nature; that all coincidences are purposive co-occurrences.
14. Life: that all things are alive, even death; that life is eternal; life is existence, i.e. all that exist are imbued with life.

15. Love: manifests through attraction of unlikes to hold all things together as one.
16. Light: is the mandate of life, while darkness has no real existence of its own, but a mere shadow cast from light; So, light, i.e. good, exists, but darkness, i.e. evil, is unreal.
17. Identical Unsameness: that no two things, events, situations, times, places etc. are identical in nature, no matter their degree of similarities.
18. Prosperity: that money flees from those running after it, but is attracted to those confidently walking towarrds it; When money is caged, once it escapes therefrom, it never returns thereto; but where it is set free from time to time, willingly does it return thereto, accompanied by any of the neighboring escaping caged money.
19. Beauty: that everything in life is essentially beautiful; When all the so-called ugly and dirty stuffs are reduced to their basic elemental components, their underlying beauty will show through and come out.

20. Coincidence: that incidental co-occurrence of some other thing with everything in the nick of time, is always naturally so timely that one might be tempted to adduce sheer luck or chance.
21. Creation: is not something coming out of nothing; for nothing can never give rise to something. All the so-called created entities merely appear so, but in reality, it is only the actuality of existence that is merely brought into the conscious awareness of man.
22. Cycle or Periodicity: to everything, every growth, every development, there are graded, gradated periods. The apparent retrogression in nature is merely the respective corresponding negative sides of the various cycles.
23. Ultimate Good (Means & End): that every end is a means to some other end; that the ultimate good is the totality of all conceivable good.
24. Impossibility: that all possibilities are possible, and all impossibilities are impossible; that all the impossible possibilities are possible, and all possible impossibilities, possible.
