THE FACTUAL ASPECT OF A LAW
Although the number of facts is infinite, A Unified Theory of a Law teaches that the best way to arrange them is as follows:
The subject of a law is conduct. Conduct flows. It flows from a source to a recipient. Conduct that reaches a recipient is called consequences. Furthermore, a flow of conduct from source to recipient is done in circumstances. Circumstances are the context in which conduct flows. Hence, a flow of conduct from source to recipient in circumstances is the factual aspect of a law.
In short, the factual mantra of A Unified Theory of a Law is a flow of conduct from Source to Recipient in circumstances. Repeat it over and over again.
- It is mono-directional. It always flows from a Source to a Recipient. The Source is upstream; the Recipient is downstream. Conduct never flows the other way.
- Furthermore, it has polarity. It is either on or off. When on, a flow of conduct is described as being “affirmative”. When off, as “negative”. There is absolutely no difference between affirmative conduct and negative conduct other than its polarity. Because the flow of conduct is binary, the word, 'not' reverses the polarity of conduct turning affirmative conduct into negative conduct.
What proof do we have that the subject of a law is conduct? Have you ever wondered why, in general, there are only two types of litigant in a court of law? Why only a plaintiff and a defendant? Why not more? Why not less? There are two types of litigant in a court of law because the focus of a court a law is conduct and conduct has only two ends. On one of its ends is the Source of conduct - who, in a court, is called a defendant; on the other end is the Recipient of conduct - who, in a court, is called a plaintiff. If conduct had one end or three ends instead of two, the number of litigants would be a number other than two.
A Unified Theory of a Law has developed a graphic to help you organize the legal ideology being taught. The graphic is called the Triangle of a Law. As we progress, mention will be made of it. There are three relationships in A Unified Theory of a Law one of which is factual and two of which are legal. Hence, the geometric shape of a triangle whose three sides represent the three relationships found in A Unified Theory of a Law . The factual relationship is depicted at the base of the Triangle of a Law. In making a law, a lawmaker perched at the acme of the Triangle of a Law despises the flow of conduct from Source to Recipient in circumstances below in deciding which of the three permutations of a law to apply to it.
