1. It seeks understanding of nature and human nature and does not attempt to set these apart.
2. It is unprejudiced and hence in a sense un-objective, based on considering all available evidence from all available perspectives.
3. It recognizes the restrictive nature of any fixed, uniquely situated perspective in which an observer is distanced from the observed.
4. It does not isolate reason from emotion or give precedence to one over the other.
5. It corresponds with and is therefore not set in opposition to natural dynamic processes and geometry, thereby obviating conflict and paradox.
6. It does not, except as an analytical tool, impose an artificial rectilinear frame upon nature or regard linearity as precursive to non-linearity.
7. It does not, except as an analytical tool, deliberately exclude or ignore some vital aspect of nature for the sake of convenience.
8. It recognises that all form is a dynamic inclusion of space - not an occupier of space - and so is not definable in absolute (axiomatic) terms.
9. It recognizes that all is included in and influenced by all - content is inseparable from context at any scale.
10. It includes love.
