F’in’g explains discontinuity of ethics. Ethics is a function of frequency (ν) and spacetime (st). What is ethical on a level of gene is not ethical on the level of cell or human being. What is ethical for humanity (ν= 7billion) in next 10 years is not ethical for humanity on a scale of 100.000years. Ethics resides in realm of quantum (physical) world.
Morality (in contrast to ethics) resides in the domain of newtonian physics. Morality is like an electron that is being measured. We do not know what ethics is, because it is discontinual until we measure it – but in that moment it becomes morality. We can not establish both functions of ethics in the same moment: better that we establish (ν) less we know about (st); and vice versa. Ethics is in a domain of Heisenberg uncertainty principle that is valid for extremely small or extremely large entities. Morality is measured set of values that safely resides in the realm of medium (ν) and medium (st).
Buddhism is ethics and not morality. It is not explained in newtonian (continual) terms. Buddhism resides in the realm of phase transition between universes. It can be »explained« as a story from the standpoint of an entanglement in physics. Entanglement in spacetime is in fact scientifically explained reincarnation.
