Take The Initiative. Go To Work, And Above All Co-Operate And Don’t Hold Back On One Another Or Try To Gain At The Expense Of Another. Any Success In Such Lopsidedness Will Be Increasingly Short-Lived. These Are The Synergetic Rules That Evolution Is Employing And Trying To Make Clear To Us. They Are Not Man-Made Laws. They Are The Infinitely Accommodative Laws Of The Intellectual Integrity Governing Universe.
