What is the basis for man being a trinity of beings? A "Trinity" is one entity of three ideas or things that are in balancing change. Starting with the premise that man is a trinity of spirit-mind-body, it follows that what describes the parts of the balancing trinity of man will be a balancing trinity of spiritual-rational-sensual values. As such, only one part of man's dynamic trinity may be dominant at a time. So man is a balancing trinity of spiritual-rational-sensual beings. In balancing change, if one being is dominant, the other two beings are subordinate. If each being can function in relative independence, then each being must have a mind. So man is a balancing trinity of spiritual-rational-sensual beings, minds, and values that parallel his balancing spirit-mind-body.
What are the basic categories of values? The values of any balancing trinity may be classified under the basic categories of negative-neutral-positive natural values, and spiritual-rational-sensual human values.
What are emotive feelings? Human values have a fourth category, emotive feelings. Emotive refers to feelings of emotion, instinct, impulse, and compulsion. Free willed self-control is between a balancing trinity of spiritual-rational-sensual minds and values. Beyond rational free willed values are emotive feelings. To be emotive is to lose rational, free-willed self-control. It is to rely on the whim and will of God, Fate, or chance. Emotive feelings are found in the mystic-psychic-occultic individuals who rely on God, Fate, or chance to make choices.
How is all this structured? All that has been said about the nature of man may be explained, illustrated, related, developed, and unified by the No-value Trinity Structure, shown below: Below it is a listing of spiritual-rational-sensual values and emotive feelings. These indicate how human value are relative to which mind they relate, and to how they change with man's manifest being:
_____________________________________________________________ - ± + 0 SPIRITUAL > RATIONAL > SENSUAL > EMOTIVE _____________________________________________________________ Conscience Judgment Experience Instinct Creator Organizer Constructor Non-organized Synthesizer Relater Observer Non-relater Believer Thinker Doer Non-thinker Introvert Ambivert Extrovert Extremist Reactionary Moderate Radical Immoderate Character Personality Popularity No identity Ascetic Moderate Hedonistic Dissipate Intuitive Logical Empirical Emotional Deductive Inductive- Inductive Non-conceptual Deductive Abstruse Abstract Concrete Non-abstract
How is man born to have conflict? Man's spiritual-rational-sensual beings and values are also negative-neutral-positive, or thesis-synthesis-antithesis values. This infers that man is born to have conflict between his minds and values. All mental conflict are blocking of the spirit-mind-body. This conflict is indicated by the spiritual mind and values that say "No" to the sensual mind and values, that says "Yes" to its own fulfillment. The rational mind, with reason, says "Maybe" while making a rational judgement and choice, and to enable moderation, harmony, and stability in the trinity. This inherent conflict applies to the trinity of spiritual-rational-sensual beings of the individual; as well as outside, within the trinity of spiritual-rational-sensual beings of society. In society this conflict is evident between reactionary-moderate-radical groups.
Does man have free will? Man's non-free spiritual being and will says "No" to the non-free sensual being and will that says "Yes" in fulfilling its potential to the maximum. The rational being, with its free will, says "Maybe" before judging to join one or the other beings. How reason decides is how the being goes in life. This is the basis for man having a rational free-willed-self-control of the balancing changes between his minds and beings; between his spirit-mind-body. By controlling these he controls his purpose in life, and the goals and values to it. It makes him to be what he is, what he could be, and what he should be. It makes man, as a trinity of three beings in one, to be as theology says, "in the image of God" (The Trinity).
How else is man determined? Man is predetermined by how he is born -- by his genes. He is determined by nature and society -- by his laws and the environment. He is self-determined by his rational, free-willed self-control. Man's free-willed self-control is within the trinitized limitations of his predetermination-self determination-determination.
What is man's "Manifest Being? Man must self-determine himself, if he is to adjust to the predeterminations of his birth and the determinations of his society and nature. This infers that besides having a dominant being, which is his basic nature, man also has a manifest being, or the role that he manifests in his adjustments to the dominant values of his society and the laws of nature. Thus the dominantly spiritual person should adjust to the values of a dominantly sensual society, vice versa for the dominantly sensual individual. The dominantly rational individual tends to automatically adjust with his moderation and harmony that go with his rationality.
How does the manifest being change in history? The manifest-being of the individual changes as the Spiritual-Rational-Sensual. Emotive values change with the "Seasons" on the "Calendar of Human Change". The manifest being also changes with the "Months" on the Human Calendar. These months, based on the changing manifest nature of man and his values, are: Survival -- Hardship-Self-discipline -- Effort -- Security -- Leisure -- Pleasure -- Dissipation -- Degradation -- Ruin -- and return to Survival. How the values of the dominantly spiritual, rational, sensual, and emotive individuals differ is illustrated by the changing values in Western, Christian, Caucasian Civilization.
How do the same principles apply on all social ranges? The Progressive Ranges of Society include the Individual, Family, Group, City, Nation, Civilization, and Humanity. As a civilization, or any other social range, is the collective extension of the individual, then what applies, in principle, to the nature of the individual, will also apply, in principle, to the nature of all of the progressive ranges of society. So the listing of values in Western Civilization; under the ages of Medieval-Renaissance-Modern, and No-value; may be paraphrased relative to all the progressive ranges of society. Thus, listing of values maybe paraphrased relative to the individual for a psychological view of the values. Or t may be paraphrased relative to the family and group for a sociological view; or to the city and nation for a political perception, or to a civilization and humanity for a philosophical perspective.
What is a social trinity? Humanity, or any other range of society, is a trinity of spiritual-rational-sensual beings. Individual man is the same, but he is dominant in one of these beings. In effect, Humanity conforms to a balanced distribution of beings, so that basically, 1/3 of humanity is dominantly spiritual, 1/3 dominantly rational, and 1/3 dominantly sensual; with degrees of difference between each category. This makes the basic dominant being of each individual to be unique in the mixture of his dominant being and subordinate beings. As the individual may freely changes his manifest being, so the Distribution Balance Scale of humanity may be skewed.
How is this Balanced Distribution verified? The balanced distribution of beings, on the family range, is verified by Mendel's law that says, if 2 parents have 4 children, one will be most like the father, one like the mother, one like the father/mother, and one like the mother/father. This makes a balanced distribution of beings in a family , which collectively, make a balanced distribution of their values in society. This extends to all of the Progressive Ranges to make the balanced distribution of humanity's spiritual-rational-sensual individuals and values.
What is man's primary purpose on earth? Man is born to achieve a purpose in life that is consistent with his dominant being, and with the self and social perfection that is "in the image of" the Ultimate Trinity. That purpose is to fulfill one's spiritual-rational-sensual potential to the maximum, while maintaining a rational, rhythmic, harmonious unity between his trinity of potentials and beings. This purpose is moderated by the Primary Duty to harmonize with the Primary Purposes in Life of God-man-nature.
CHANGES IN MAN'S NATURE RELATIVE TO HISTORY
Changes in man's dominant and manifest beings, between in his basic nature and his role-playing nature, are reflected in his changing values, that parallel the changing "Seasonal" values on the Calendar of Human Change, as structure below:
___________________________________________________________________________ - ± + 0
MEDIEVAL AGE > RENAISSANCE AGE > MODERN AGE > NO VALUE AGE
