Introduction

THIS IS A DRAFT. IT IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. IT IS NOT FINISHED
Killing - an instance of conduct flowing from a Source to a Recipient through circumstances - has drawn the attention of Lawmakers since the dawn of lawmaking. One of the law’s original top ten was, 'Thou shall not kill' , ( which, by the way, is a command requiring negative conduct) . Even though 'Thou shall not kill' appears unequivocal, there are those who advocate for deadly loopholes in the biblical command against killing. In certain circumstances — as barbaric as it sounds — they advocate for 'Thou may kill or not kill' ( which is a permission allowing both polarities of conduct ) and for 'Thou shall kill' ( which is a command requiring affirmative conduct) . The proponents of killing are so fervent in their advocacy that one wonders whether they were given special access to the back of the tablets God gave to Moses on which the exceptions to 'Thou shall not kill' might have been written.
A subset of the battle between good and evil is the battle between life and death. It is not inaccurate to say that those who support the permission, 'Thou may kill or not kill' and the command, 'Thou shall kill' have taken the side of death and those who support the command, 'Thou shall not kill' have taken the side of life. Good versus Evil; Life versus death! What other controversy is more fundamental and profound for us mortals?
To truly appreciate the profundity of the battle between Good versus Evil and Life versus Death, ponder the effects of adding the following amendment to the United States Constitution: "Thou shall not kill. No exceptions." Who would support such an amendment? Who would oppose? Would a supporter be labeled an extremist? Would an opponent be considered reasonable? Ponder the effects and you will be astonished and horrified to discover that death has its own constituency!
Let us look at the battle between life and death in its various contexts. Let us start with the facts.

The facts

Let us begin by filling the general factual variables with particular values. A Unified Theory of a Law suggests that, although the number of facts is infinite, the best way to arrange them is as conduct flowing from a Source to a Recipient through circumstances. Therefore, obviously, the conduct is killing. The Source doing the killing is a killer. The consequence of killing is death. And the Recipient receiving killing is a victim. Hence, the facts consist of a flow of killing from a Killer to a Victim through circumstances. These facts occupy the base of The Triangle of Law .
Moreover, A Unified Theory of a Law teaches us that killing is mono-directional. It always flows from a Killer to a Victim never from a Victim to a Killer. In addition, killing has the property of polarity. The flow of killing is either on or off. When on, killing is affirmative conduct; when off, killing is negative conduct. There is no difference whatsoever between negative and affirmative killing other than its polarity.
What distinguishes killing are the circumstances that surround it and through which it flows.
