Harmonizing the structures of moral laws with those of nature.

The word symmetry comes from the Greek and means “with measure”.

In the physical sense, it is a property of an object or a system according to which there is no privileged direction through space and time during a transformation. A. Einstein used the word “invariance” instead of “symmetry”.

symmetries are a geometrical description of the universal interactions responsible for the physical phenomena observed in the Universe for the last 13.8 billion years.

These interactions or forces, are symmetrical in nature; they are : the strong nuclear force, the electromagnetic force, the weak nuclear force and gravity.

The symmetries (invariance) of the physical world are some of the aspects of the harmony of the universe. They also offer one of the keys to the intelligibility of matter.

Harmony comes from the Greek and means to join, to adapt, to make coincide.

This essay is therefore an attempt to make the structures of moral laws coincide with the physical ones of nature insofar as they areĀ  analogous, wimilar or symmetrical.
