The social level is creation directed in both dominate and dominated patterns, indicated by the (+ +) symbols. The intellect level is discreation directed. These two levels make up the subjective struction. Using a vertical and horizontal grid, as suggested by Roger Parker via the Lila Squad, I have attempted to place moral values in a sequence for better understanding. This is from a static quality point of view.
MORALITY'S FORCE OF VALUE

Value forces in the Metaphysics of Quality do not change the static patterns of value in a instantaneous or certain way, but rather it is responsible for guiding them, directing them so to speak. Force of Value could be thought of as the breath of reality. Planck's constant and the Lamb shift come into play here.
Recognizing force of value within the Metaphysics of Quality allows an expanded awareness to develop of the interactions and moral implications. Like the Buddhist Wheel of Life, our reality is continually con-structing and de-structing itself through these forces of value.
In the table above, I have attempted to identify some of the contributing Forces of Value in a context of everyday reality. Some may disagree with my placements of certain things like love/war, but overall I think it is a Good way to see how Forces of Value direct our lives in every conceivable way. Rather than looking at the four static quality levels as permanent, they must be seen as in a continual state of creation and discreation, not necessarily in that order.
In the upper right-hand corner of the chart is Brujo/Saint. Because this realm is completely de-latched, viewing it from the social level as we do it is difficult to understand the higher moral value contained in the intellect level patterns of value.
It could be said that the Brujo/Saint have transcended the self and in doing so have left the "real" world behind in a very real way. Static quality patterns of value arise through our consciousness by means of static latching at the social level.
We can see how these patterns arise in the way we perceive reality.
Look at the two faces below. Which face is happier?
These faces are mirror images of each other. Look at the noses of each. Which face is the happy face? Julian Jaynes writes:
We definitely know that there are specific areas of the brain that are inhibitory to others, that the brain in a very general way is always in a kind of complicated tension (or balance) between excitation and inhibition, and also that inhibition can occur in a number of different ways. The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind Page 428
This tension seems to be between the left hemisphere, associated with social level patterns of value, with the right hemisphere, associated with intellect patterns of value. The left hemisphere is directed by the static latching creative Force of Value, while the right hemisphere is directed by discreative de-latching Force of Value.
For those interested in further reading, here are some excerpts from recent Lila Squad e-mail concerning the subject.
This is an ongoing paper and I will add to it as time permits. Thank you for reading, and any comments are appreciated.
