    It doesn't exist in the nature of the universe, but it exists as social conventions/norms. I guess somebody would say that social norms don't exist, but the fact I'd be frowned/legally penalised upon for driving on the wrong side of the M6 says otherwise, right?

    I don't anybody really believes that morality exists in the nature of the universe, right?
