Physically or philosophically, it is impractical to develop without a foundation or fundamentals. Like the laws of physics, human values come sort of connected and intertwined. Understand one and the rest start to figure in together. With the fundamentals in place, personal development can happen on its own.
Theory of Relativity speaking , the marriage of space and time makes it seem silly for cosmology to consider that there is an "outside" to our space/time "bubble". Quantum physics is a trail that leads inside. Quantum irony allows us to take that both physically and philosophically.
