What are morals? When we act on our realities to do so unthinkingly would result in harm to others. Our actions have consequences, they change actuality. Morals guide our actions so we do not hurt others. They do not guide the way we perceive things, the process of realization - they govern only how we choose to do things. They become part of our reality, the way we conduct ourselves. They limit what we can do – we no longer do that which hurts others – but they also increase what we can do – they foster trust since blind action leading to destruction is frowned on and leads to antagonism. Morals can probably be arrived at several ways. Perhaps we are born with innate morals. These sorts of morals, if they exist, are part of our genetic code, part of actuality, and they cannot be changed. Some morals are learnt from various realities and as we age and learn we become exposed to them. The Ten Commandments, for instance, teach what actions are not acceptable – millions of people subscribe to these morals and attempt to live their lives accordingly. Lastly, we learn morals on our own by acting and observing how we have affected actuality. Actions that hurt are remembered and later avoided, becoming part of our personal moral code. This harks back to the distinction between individual and populist conceptions of the world.
