Guiding Factors and Principles.
Nature placed animals and human beings on this earth,
and as a consequence they now exist.
Survival aids existence.
In fact, survival is absolutely necessary for continued existence on this earth or any other planet. This is the difference between life and inanimate objects.
So, as a first principle, say, a principle of life,
we have survival, and from this principle other principles follow.
This may seem a little over elemental at this point, but the further we go the
more obvious the principle of principles becomes.
The reason for this is that principles exist, in a sense,
parallel to a law of cause and effect.
In fact, principles exist as a result of cause and effect.
If life exists, survival is necessary.
Survival is necessitated as an effect of life existing.
In this principle, the existence of life is the cause, and the necessity of survival is the effect.

Cause and Effect
Cause and effect is the fundamental principle necessary for understanding anything to which we may apply intelligence. It is a fundamental requirement as a basis for any honest and true understanding of anything. Furthermore, it is the essential building block of any logical thought process. Any other basis gives effect only to fake reality and untruth.
Logical thought, faithfully based upon cause and effect, builds reason.
No dishonest thought process can be based upon honest logical thought using cause and effect as it's component parts. Nor can faithful and correct conclusions arise from thought processes that are not based on honest logic.
Components of the above may seem obvious. However the importance of keeping everything founded upon logic based upon cause and effect can never be over stated, nor overstressed, and so they must be instilled into the very thought processed of people before the thoughts of the people can follow truth and reality accurately.
