  • RE: Quantum Morality as conservans

    Till today there is no one coherent moral theory which fully explains this phenomenon. This new approach tends to show morality as complex interplay among biological substrates and environmental influences on our morality: Quantum morality. This holistic approach stands on quantum coherence concept (QCC) and on Triune ethics concept (TEC). QCC discuss our morality as resultant of our inner energetic imbalances (Hameroff, 1994) and imbalances caused by outside (living context). Modalities of our morality (biological determined) by TEC are: Secure, Engagement and Imagination (Narvaez, 2016).
    According to Navaraez (2015) Triune Ethics (TET) is an interdisciplinary theory whose goals are to link moral psychology to affective neuroscience, help explain individual differences in moral functioning, and suggests some initial conditions for moral development. Three types of ethics can drive human morality, as she outlines. These are based on different affectively-based moral stances that persons can take: one oriented to security (the Ethic of Security) and focused on self-preservation through safety, and personal and ingroup dominance. Another is oriented to emotional engagement with others (the Ethic of Engagement), particularly through caring relationships and social bonds. The third is the Ethic of Imagination, which is focused on creative ways to think and act socially.
    Neuroscience, quantum biology, and quantum physics are all now beginning to converge to reveal...
