I did a search and research myself and arrived at the Answer.
Yes. This is Mentioned in the Vedas.
Rtam cha satyam chAbhidhdAt (1), tapaso adhyajAyata (2)
Truth was born and the Law of Truth (1), From the kindled fire of Energy of Consciousness.
Rig Veda 10.190.1
satyam brihat rtam ugram, dikshA tapo brahma yajnah, prithivi dhArayanti ||
The Truth (satyam), the Vast (brihat) and the Truth-in-movement (rtam), strength (ugram), initiation, askesis, mantra (brahma) and Yajna- These uphold the Earth.
Atharva Veda 12.1.1
See a nice explanation here
What is the concept of ritam as per the vedas?
Any Basis for Karma Result Assignment MUST be based on the Aforesaid Axioms from Vedas.
That is Truth Satyam and Rtam
When you introduce something as Law, You automatically divide Sentience into the followers of a Law and non-followers of a Law. The Result of their following or non-following of a Law Must be based on how the Law of Truth (Rtam) is affected at the highest level i.e at the kindled fire of Energy of Consciousness based on their actions.
Now, you have to Pardon some detour in Philosophy to understand the Laws of Truth.
Let's take the Sat and Chid part. 'Sat' is the Truth. 'Chid' is Existence. Why do they say they are the Same? Let's see. If something does not exist, then it is falsehood.There cannot be something called falsehood at all. It's just that the symbols we use to define the concept of falsehood as negation of Truth. If you say Falsehood exists independently, then you unwittingly, for explanation purposes, you give Truth to some 'concept' called 'Falsehood' using the English letters in this case for understanding purposes. In that action itself, you HAVE to use some TRUTH. In this case we need symbols, i.e the truth in the meaning expressed by those symbols. Symbols need a background like Space ' '. Or Sound need a background like Silence. Your Actions using your organs( if they exist) either can be correct or incorrect but they are all Carved out of the Higher level 'Basis' - like symbols in the above e.g, like Silence, Inaction, Space etc. Now, Without the Existence of such a background can anything exist? That statement MUST be true - i.e That the Background MUST Exist with out that symbols or actions can't be carved out as well. Now you can create form from the formless, sound from silence etc. That action - i.e. the act of creating a form or sound carries with it a meaning. So using symbols or actions or sounds we also give 'meaning' to express something. What is the First Ever 'symbol' and 'sound' or 'Gamma Ray' or 'different thingy' that came out of the Background or the 'Basis' (and we haven't asked that yet, but what the heck is the Background :-))? And why did that became different? And finally What did that Mean, I mean what was the Meaning of that first separation? And what are all the Meaning structures of subsequent separation?
With this understanding, Let's annotate Bible,
John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word(Separated Entity - SE), and the Word was with God (SE + Basis), and the Word was God (Meaning)"
Let's annotate Chandogya 1.1.1, 1.1.2 and 2.23
"Om is Brahman(Carved Sound = Om, meaning = Basis) and "Om is all this [observed world](Carved out part of Sound)"
"The earth is the essence of all things, living or non-living; water is the essence of the earth; plants are the essence of water; human beings are the essence of plants; speech is the essence of human beings; the Ṛg Veda is the essence of speech; the Sāma Veda is the essence of the Ṛg Veda; and the udhītha is the essence of the Sāma Veda"
(Meaning structure leading upto Sama Veda upto OM)
" OM or Udgitha is Sung ( Carving out from Silence)"
So Let's answer.
And why did that became different?
ASAT or Background wanted to know what is itself!
What did that Mean, I mean what was the Meaning of that first separation?
And what are all the Meaning structures of subsequent separation?
The Universe, ... , world and other thingies and non-thingies like Gamma ray etc. you and me our actions.
Why is this Maya?
Let's see...Since you are carved out of the Background, you must be background too...Background itself split into two(A-dvaita), But how did that split? split using what - I mean the shapes or sounds or thingies form only if there is distinction from the background( May be kid of Dvaita...) - oops - But, wait a minute, distinction to whom - I mean which Sentience? The one that can see using light? the one who hears or feel? Or All of those like in an animal or Human...Those Sentience form a tree leading up to the root sentient entity the Supreme consciousness. OK. That required a distinction when you carve out....All Carvings for the Supreme Consciousness(Brahman) to realize 'it's own' Basis - The Nirguna Parabrahman(NPB) :-). Again the same thing said for meaning and understanding etc.
i.e understanding for Whom, Makes sense for whom etc.? So Finally, this should all mean well and make sense to the first carved out Sentient entity!
OK. We detoured a bit too far but we arrived at Energy(1) of Consciousness(Root), which again came from NPB. Good that was the point.
Now, What must the result assignment of Karma of Carved out of actions of Sentient Mayic entities be based out of?
Remember, we are talking Karma of All Sentience up-to the root!
Ok. Pause and think about it....
Alright. Let's define the Basis of Result assignment of Karma.
I strongly think and propose that this Must be based out of the Law of the following Truths!
1) Increasing the understanding of Root consciousness about the Basis(NPB) ( Awareness).
2) Or Increasing the Meaning formation for Root consciousness about the Basis(NPB) ( Symbol and Thingie Carving - Creation) leading up-to (1).
3) Removing of unwanted Carved out thingies / sentience as and when meaning becomes well understood by the Root consciousness ( Destruction )
4) Root consciousness and it's sentience tree down may choose to keep/delete any section of it's sentience tree for (1,2 or 3) again.
5) NPB intervention for re-definition of anything else....
Of course, lower level sentience do not know the Root, so they follow their superior node up the tree! Now, we see room for errors if the basis of result assignment is undefined or poorly defined for Karma.
So, We have to ponder our purpose and contribute in someway towards the ulterior motives above - i.e Within our Carved out Context( Earth etc.). There are entities at work so Good Karma phalam gives 'Eternity with Sun' again possibly to fulfill (1) above in Sun's own way and is up-to Sun to define that. As and when Bad Karma accumulates, understand that (3) is at work...and (4) of course is obvious...
Now, (5) Only Root can realize That it is NPB intervention no sentient below realizes usually...
Rest of the Karma phalam determination is based on New Carve-outs and their associated meaning...
Let’s deal with One example- The most important - in my perspective.
Why should you be or attempt to be Truthful in your action and words?
Because you must Exist for You to do or say anything.
And that must be A True statement.
Without your existence being True or Truthful, you can neither speak a lie or truth or be Truthful in your actions or not!
But for you to exist Now, a whole lot of True things such as existence of earth within Galaxy etc. existence of countries, existence of place you live in, existence of home in your place etc. etc. , existence of your parents etc. All of them Must be Truthful in that chain. Any break in the chain and that would affect adversely all the true things that relied on that! So by being truthful you are indirectly aligning with the higher level Truths and at least remembering and acknowledging the vast stretches of Truth above.
Now, let’s say for argument sake that Root consciousness picks one Soul from Earth and decides for fun sake that, if he is Truthful, then the extent of his Truthfulness will be applied to the Truth in the existence of wealth for his inheriting Son. If you are 90% truthful your Son gets 90% of wealth accumulated by you. Hey, he is root he can make sure that happens. Note, he is also learning different ways of doing things at a higher level and indirectly this about NPB. Also being a devil that he is :-) he could also apply your Truth behavior in your life - the percentage of truthfulness- to the Existence of Earth’s life itself, After you are gone, the percentage of lies you have spoken and untruthful actions in your life will decide what survives and what doesn’t survive, on earth. You never know!
And Thus, Earth could be upheld by Truth spoken by you!
Now to be fair, if instead of just choosing you he could look at the overall population of earth and decide, ok, if 90% of population speaks and does things truthfully then 90% Earth will survive after they are gone etc. Who knows? But Vedas tells us that Earth is upheld by Truth!
So Be truthful!
Root consciousness could also have decided that I give 10 generations for a species to realize the Truth- that the statement Earth must exist is True for them to be alive and kicking. Say, Not, all of them need to realize. Say, just one being. If not. Then they don’t deserve to exist any longer. And we can see things to that effect. Where are the Dinosaurs today :-)?
So you can see what the ‘Butterfly effect’ of your Karma Results in the Karma Phalam of other entities!
I could say the same thing for Dharmam Charah.
Remember, falsehood cannot have existence of its own. And, hence truth is greater!
