Musing on a hot summer day
I imagine that when the human brain evolved into a mind that could understand "love," "graciousness," and "justices" (and project those attributes onto a Creator that they could now think the originator of these positive attributes), this "new creature" observed and reasoned and also came to understand "jealousy," "anger," "hate," and "violence" and further understood that some attributes are positive to peace and tranquility, while others are negative. From all that came a new concept called values -- agreed upon positive behavior that could provide the most peace and tranquility to the most folks. A new tool -- common values -- allowed humans to move from the natural to the artificial with a degree of peace and tranquility, even when living in the most unnatural of settings, towns and cities.
