A MAJOR SCIENTIFIC BREAKTHROUGH INTEGRATING PSYCHOLOGY AND RELIGIONS INTO THE MORAL SCIENCE
The analysis of the creative process reflects the unconscious need for conflict resolution or moral order as a scientific phenomenon abiding by two formulas of science. The FORMAL THEORY explains why all stories end with a moral conclusion, the feeling of happily ever after, using the art exhibits of the museum illustrating the creative process as a scientific and moral order phenomenon.
Moral order has been traditionally identified with religion-bound moral imperatives. We are departing from this tradition. We identify morality as a science originating in the psychic need to resolve conflicts as a physiological automatic unconscious phenomenon. Science makes us conscious of the moral unconscious, as the mechanism of Conflict Resolution, the unconscious psychological need to accomplish social adjustment by correcting deviations from the norm by seeking normative conciliation. Science regards morality as a natural science, the unconscious calculus of power management resolving conflicts. The Conflict Resolution Process is the most abstract way of conceptualizing morality as the innate need to resolve conflict understood as transforming passivity into activity, antagonism to cooperation and alienation to mutual respect. This process is a formula of choices and consequences present in all samples of creativity and unfolding as a six-role state emotional sequence.
Religions are viewed as normative institutions, discoveries of alternative conflict resolutions sanctifying particular ways of resolving conflicts. As such they are measurable natural science phenomena, partial and complementary discoveries of the power management calculus of the Moral Science. Religions have evolved improving family relations and the definition of the divine. The history of religions attests to the continuous improvement of resolving conflict in domestic and societal relationships. This normative improvement is accompanied by the increasingly abstract conceptualizations of the divine. The divine figures have been redefined to moral abstraction being ascribed the attributes of the unconscious process.
Science improves the conceptualization of psychology, while it demystifies religion by comprehending the process. Both the individual and society have evolved along alternative conflict resolutions, always improving the sense of rest, peace, resolution by restructuring social norms, creating a more functional society. Individual and societal growth have progressed along personal insights, sociological enlightenment and spiritual wisdom.
The relevance of the formal analysis of the creative process is in allowing us to examine the dimensions of cultural stories as particular ways of resolving conflicts corresponding to the range of the relational modalities. The religions then may be diagnosed along the relational modalities and examined in their interrelation as the evolution of the family institution. They have evolved as discoveries of science, sequentially identifying how to improve family relations. Moral Monopoly is a game of cards that retraces the evolution of religions as discoveries of the relational modalities as a progression that uses cultural stories to be evaluated by the players along the premises of the formal distinctions: do the stories resolve conflicts in six steps? Do they resolve them along the progression of modalities? Does the Formal Theory provide insights for the Abrahamic religions to be reconciled by espousing the principle of mutual respect?
