All is one. Everything in the universe is connected to everything else, at the quantum level. Every atom has been quantumly entangled since the beginning of the universe. According to what we known from science as the creation of the universe, the Big Bang (created by a Catholic Priest, so it isn't anti-religion) the universe started off as one being and still is. Think of your organs, they part of your body, yet still independent. This is true for humanity and all biological life as well (and possibly even objects such as computers).
You are made of atoms. Atoms in your body make up cells. Cells are part of organs. Organs are part of your body. Your body is part of the Earth. The Earth is part of Solar System. The Solar System is part of the Milk Way. The Milky Way is part of the Universe. It is worth noting that Uni means one.
Individuals exist, but everyone is connected. If someone is harmed, then I am harmed. If I am harmed, so is everyone else. There is no such thing as sacrificing an individuals rights or needs for the common good because they are only hurting the community. What is good for individuals is good for the group, and what is good for the group is good for its individuals, but it must be good for both simultaneously.
If you do something that causes someone else to suffer, you suffer. If you help someone, you prosper. I am you and you are me, at the fundamental level.
This concept can be found in Buddhism (Dukha and Karma), Christianity (1 Corinthians 12:12-27 and Galatians 6:8), and in other religions as well.
This does not mean that you should let yourself and others be accosted with violence or coerced either. You should use enough force to stop the violence so that way you can end the suffering. Of course it is preferable to tell the attacker to stop since it could be a mistake, but it isn't required. And sometimes, it is required if the attacker persists after warning.
Animals are also included as well, as long as people use violence against animals, the individuals who use violence will suffer and so will all of humanity. Humans have the right to eat meat, to fish, to hunt, and other activities that harm animals, but it is not in our interest. For example, I am saying that nobody can point a gun at you and say stop fishing or I will hurt you. We should not make laws against these practices, but come to a level of education and awareness that we do not do these activities. Human rights are more important than animals, because we are at a higher level of consciousness. Animals will never be respected until human rights are respected.
As long as Man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings, he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love"
All non-animal biological life should be respected as well, however, they are not capable of emotions. Plants and fungi can be harvested and eaten with no moral consequences. However, actions such as fracking, extracting oil, and deforestation are harmful to Earth, animals habitats, and ultimately humanity. Humans have the right to do these things, but it is not in our interest. For example, I am saying that nobody can point a gun at you and say, stop drilling oil or I will hurt you (if you didn't harm someone or there property by drilling the oil). We should not make laws against these practices, but come to a level of education and awareness that we do not do these activities. Human rights are more important than the environment and the environment will never be green unless human rights are respected by everyone.
Some proof of humanity thoughts and actions affecting earth include the effect of 9/11 on the Earth's electromagnetic field and computers https://voices.nationalgeographic.org/
…/9-11-and-global-co…/ and the Global Consciousness Project. It is worth noting that the evidence is not overwhelming, but there is some.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.
Therefore everyone should try to be the most moral they can be. Also, they should encourage others to be as moral as they can be. Everyone should voluntary help others, since, even if you are selfish, it would be helping yourself. BUT IF NOTHING ELSE, DO NOT VIOLATE OTHER HUMAN BEINGS RIGHTS.
