Session 1- Nature's General Law
There is one general law that exists in all of Nature. We are all included in it, and it operates on all of us and all of life. From the way we advance through life, we come to a realization and understanding that there must be some regulation to things, some natural law to all that occurs. Over time and for many thousands of years, the still, vegetative, animate, and human levels of life have been created and are continually evolving. This developmental evolution is gradual, and we evolve from generation to generation, from year to year, and even from day to day. To understand the direction of our evolution, we must examine this general law that operates on us and on all of life.
There seems to be a kind of superior mechanism above us—a system which develops the whole of Nature toward becoming more complex, more refined, and more harmoniously balanced and established—surrounding all of its parts so that they are more integrally connected to each other. Whether we like it or not, we are all subject to this general law that operates on us and that requires us to develop. There is actually only one general law governing all of life, and we can see that all parts of reality, everything that exists on Earth, follows its same direction.

There is one general law that exists in all of nature, and it evolves us toward the best stages of development.
- The developmental evolution in nature is gradual.
- From our natural life development, it is possible to learn that there is a general system, a general law that manages development.
- The direction of development is always toward a better state, meaning to be more and more connected to each other in all parts of life.
- We are obligated by and we must be committed to the general law of nature.
"The preceding chapter is, indeed, the historical justification of the economic truths established in the first section of this book in the terms of the facts of the present-day world, which show that the predominating factor in survival is shifting from the physical to the intellectual plane. This evolutionary process has nowreached a point in international affairs which involves the complete economic futility of military force. In the last chapter but one i dealt with the psychological consequence of this profound change in the nature of man's normal activities, showing that his nature is coming more and more to adapt itself to what he normally and for the greater part of his life--in most cases all his life--is engaged in, and is losing the impulses concerned with an abnormal and unusual occupation."Book: The Great Illusion
"There are undiscovered laws of nature which are responsible for "Self- Organization" of organisms and the Biosphere."Paper - Life on Earth - Flow of Energy and Entropy
"Most organisms are not only embedded in ecosystems but are complex ecosystems themselves, containing a host of smaller organisms that have considerable autonomy and yet integrate themselves harmoniously into the functioning of the whole. The smallest of these living components show an astonishing uniformity, resembling one another quite closely throughout the living world, as vividly described by Lewis Thomas."Book: The Systems View of Life
