The Simple Explanation's Golden Rule: Reaching Out With Love

This could be considered the central takeaway message/motto/meme of  the Simple Explanation:

Your job is to reach out to others with love, aid, and information for the betterment of all.
This goes for all Units of Consciousness, from sub-atomic quanta up through cells and organs to organisms and beyond. Every physical manifestation links up with others of its kind (atoms link together to make molecules; molecules make cells; cells make organs; organs link together to make organisms; organisms link together to create societies, and so on) to become the building blocks of the next level of hierarchical aggregation.

Does this apply to human UCs? Of course it does!

Your job is to reach out to others with love, aid, and information for the betterment of all.

When should you do this?

To whom should you reach out?
Well, who's there next to you? Who needs your help right now where you are? Is someone asking for aid or information?

What if I don't feel like helping others?
It appears to be a human truth that one can only find happiness through serving others. A me-centered life ultimately disappoints, as in, "I can't get no satisfaction."

Or, to put it in more general terms:

 It's the job of all UCs to join with others to collectively form the next hierarchical level up.


  1. This "reaching out to others with love, aid, and information" works in all hierarchical directions--we reach out laterally to others of our level of organization (other people, animals, plants); we reach out upline to assist the earth or our ecosystem; we reach out downline as good stewards of "Whoville," the personal mountain of aggregated UCs that make up each of us.

  2. I love your post on "Reaching Out With Love"!! Love oneself and also reach out and love those around you too.

  3. I'm sorry it's taken so long to publish your comment; I need to check the in-basket more often!
    "Love oneself" is an interesting phrase. Loving yourself can refer to being a good steward of Whoville (referring to "Whoville" articles)--imagine what loving care a conscious governor of Whoville would give to all those UCs making up its body. Every UC working together in harmony from the top (you) down and the bottom (mud) up.
    Loving yourself also refers to the "upline" direction, that is, the ego's and Whoville's love for You (the conscious "Self", your singular UC). The phrase literally says "loving your self," a singular self, which sounds like this upline direction.
