Reducing Suffering to Increase Happiness Through Recursion Using a Systemic Philosophy in Normative Ethics by Redefining “The Golden Rule”; A Universal Code of Ethics and Only Known Treatment for Antisocial Personality Disorder, developed by Ryan Anthony Gargano.

Definition of Knowing:
-accepting a truth proven only from personal experiences

Definition of Believing:
-accepting a truth learned only from another’s actions or claims

Definition of Theorizing:
-accepting a possible truth based off of personal experiences and another’s actions or claims

Believed definition of “The Golden Rule”:
-Treat others as you would like to be treated. (this statement has been argued and proven flawed)

New definition of “The Golden Rule”:
-Reduce another’s suffering to increase their happiness and in return it shall reduce your suffering and increase your happiness.

 

Beliefs and theories may be true, but by definition of what they are, they have yet to be proven true. Many scientists will acknowledge that science is only best guess. While science can make great advancements in technology and medicine, it does not appear to send a “positive” message to increase one’s happiness. While religion may help many people by using a “positive” message, it may not be completely true and can lead people astray. I have traded in “the pursuit of happiness” through a means of science and/or religion for a “pursuit of reducing suffering” using philosophy. It appears religion is actually a systemic philosophy that jumps to a belief system without following a proof system. A systemic philosophy using the new definition of “The Golden Rule” based off of a proof system may be able to attain one of the same end goals of a religion (creating harmony amongst individuals through unification of a common good) while maintaing an agnostic view of god(s) if one does not already believe in god(s). I have developed a systemic philosophy that proves a new definition of “The Golden Rule” using a proof based system instead of a belief based system and carries positive implications in religious, social, and political structures.

 

The Golden Rule proof and systemic philosophy: A Truth of Compassion

  • I know I would rather be happy than suffer.
  • I know reducing my suffering increases my happiness.
  • I know reducing my suffering gives purpose to continuing my existence.
  • I know I want to reduce my suffering
  • I know the suffering of another inflicts suffering upon myself.
  • I know reducing the suffering of another will reduce my own suffering.
  • I know I can reduce the suffering of another.
  • I know I want to reduce the suffering of another and increase their happiness, for in return I will reduce my suffering and increase my happiness.

Conclusion:

  • Reducing another’s suffering to increase their happiness will in turn reduce my suffering and increase my happiness.
  • I must teach this philosophy to others to further reduce my suffering.
  • Others will teach this philosophy to reduce their own suffering.
  • This philosophy is systemic.
  • This systemic philosophy can be implemented in religious, social, and political structures.

End Note:
This philosophy appears to carry MUCH importance for it redefines “The Golden Rule” by giving proof, where religion and science have failed to do so, and should easily spread due to it’s systemic nature.

Draft Notes (using the epistemological view in normative ethics that knowledge is gained through experience)

 

“The Golden Rule” Proof & Systemic Philosophy

(START)

-I understand I would rather be happy than suffer. (proven true through personal experience)

-I understand reducing my suffering increases my happiness. (proven true through personal experience)

-I understand reducing my suffering gives purpose to continuing my existence. (proven true through experience)

(STOP)

Conclusion: The only thing that is relevant to continuing my existence is experiencing more happiness and less suffering. This counters Absurdism and Nihilism, that stem from Existentialism, which were created by a lack of understanding existence or a meaning of continuing existence.

(CONTINUE)

-I want to reduce my suffering. (proven true through personal experience)

-I understand the suffering of another inflicts suffering upon myself. (proven true through personal experience)

-I can reduce the suffering of another to reduce my own suffering. (proven true through personal experience)

-I want to reduce the suffering of another to reduce my own suffering.

(STOP)

 

Conclusion: I must teach this philosophy to others to reduce my own suffering.

Conclusion: Others will teach this philosophy to reduce their suffering.

Conclusion: This philosophy is systemic.

-This philosophy redefines “The Golden Rule”

(END)

Final Conclusion: This systemic philosophy can be implemented in religious, social, and political structures.

A Step Along the Way: how and why I developed this philosophy…

I started with a feeling of something to be true, but I seem to have roots grounded in reasoning and logic which forced me to consolidate my feeling into a form of reason and logic to help myself understand why I have this feeling of truth. In doing so, the feeling became presentable in a reasonable fashion to myself as well as others. I could then use the field of normative ethics in philosophy to explain this truth to others with the hope that they would know it to be true as I do.

 

*End Note: This philosophical build seems to not have yet been discovered in the field of philosophy or I probably would have heard of it due to it’s systemic nature. This philosophy seems to carry MUCH importance for it redefines “The Golden Rule” and gives proof, where religion and science have failed to do so.

  1. I have found in recent personal experiences that if I am not taking steps to increase my happiness through eliminating bad habits, I tend to shy away from being social. Taking steps to treat myself better has increased my confidence and desire for social interaction alike.
