Implicit in everything we do is a set of assumptions. To better understand why we make decisions, we need to state the assumptions in effect at the time the decision is made. Therefore, we need to keep track of the currently active assumptions.

Active assumptions:

  1. The Universe is real.
  2. The system is Rational.
  3. The system includes the known universe.
  4. People we work with are truthful
  5. Each individual and group has one or more active goals at any point in time
  6. If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem
  7. There is a higher intelligence than the human mind
  8. There is a purpose to human life and the universe which we observe
  9. There may be an opportunity for each individual to resume consciousness in an after life
  10. That there exists free will for each individual
  11. That each individual is responsible for the decisions they make
  12. That each individual is equal (in potential) in the eyes of the creator of existence
  13. That the good of human kind is more important than any given individual
  14. That the rights of any given individual end when that right begins to cause harm to any other given individual
  15. That hard work should be rewarded
  16. That good moral character should be rewarded
  17. That the only thing owed to anyone is the opportunity to succeed
  18. That society should not reward laziness or criminal behavior
  19. That there exist a life after death where we are held accountable for our actions in life
