One of the primary Aeternal beliefs is thus the lack of an absolute truth, in contrast with that of Christianity. Truth and falsehood is all relative to the person who observes something that happens, not only from location in space and time, but also in perspective of personality and personal history, and as a result, all truth is inevitably tainted with a small bit of falsehood.

In a similar vein, Aeternals also often maintain that there is no absolute sense of right and wrong. While this may make it seem impossible to maintain justice in Aeternal affairs, justice is no longer an absolute, but rather it is defined by a group of people who share similar senses of right and wrong (whether it be an Aeternal faction, a culture, or something else). This can be carried to conflict, such as in the following common example:

Inevitably, any world that an Aeternal seriously tries to rescend will begin to resist efforts to be rescended for numerous reasons. For the most part, it is believed that the originae is forcing an undesireable goal on the people of the world being rescended, and thus conservative elements band together to fight against the impending onslaught. These conservative forces thus have a similar sense of justice that defines what an Aeternal is doing is "wrong" and that life in the First Realm is "right." In contrast, the originae likely believes that it is right and just to bring First Realms into the fold of "truth" in the Third Realm. As a result of this, there grows a conflict between two senses of justice, boiling into a war between both sides that believe (and ARE right). A similar ideological conflict exists on Earth in the "war" between America and Islamic extremists. Aeternal philosophy maintains that all conflict can find its root in such inconsistencies between groups' ideals of justice.
