EQUATION OF HISTORY & ECONOMICS:
FOREWORD: CYCLICAL TIME.
“As many more individuals of each species are born than can possibly survive; consequently, there is a frequently recurring struggle for existence, and those who propagate will have a better chance of surviving, and thus be naturally selected.”
—On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, Darwin, 1859.

‘Complexity will be the science of the XXI century’ Hawking
In the graph, the Industrial R=evolution is the Evolution of ‘Memes of metal’, Machines & weapons, systems made of hard metal (iron) and Money, a digital language made of informative metal (gold, also used in the chip connections of computer cycles, now converted into e-money). So we can divide its evolution in the same phases that evolve any organism, and consider in history the nation that evolves them to be in each phase of the Industrial revolution the top nation of the world as it will use its ‘eviL=anti-live’ twins, weapons, to conquer the world.
Thus, those generations also bring the nation that finds the new energy to the top predator status of history. Because energy is also the substance of which weapons are made.
—Thus, we had an age of steam machines, the age of England, between 1780s and 1857, followed by a crisis of overproduction of steam machines and stock-money that brought the 1857 ±8/9 years product cycle crashes of the train-based economy (nt.1).
—From 1857 to 1929, we lived in the age of electro-chemical energies, machines and chemical explosives, dominated by Germany, followed by a crisis of overproduction of cars and radios, which caused the 1929 crash, 72 years after the train crash.
– It came then the III cycle of electronic machines, electronic money and Nuclear Bombs that took place from 1929-2001, the age of America; which again ended in the dotcom and mortgage crashes, 72+8/9 years after 1929:
Followed by the Age of the Singularity, the IV Cycle of Evolution of machines dominated by robots, solar Industries and China. Scientists call the arrival of Artificial Intelligence, the Singularity moment, when robots, which can use solar energy to become autonomous will complete the evolution of machines as organic forms, automating factories & expelling most human workers and soldiers from labor and war fields, as previous revolutions did with obsolete III World non-technological humans, unless we forbid legally their evolution.
Money, likely a cryptocurrency independent of man, will become then the digital informative, ‘memetic code’ that organizes their reproduction in those automated company-mothers.
As such corporations, the ‘company-mothers’ of those machines whose biological function is to evolve and re=produce them, made first the bodies of machines (XIX c.), then the minds of machines (cameras-eyes, mobile-ears and chips-brains. Finally, in the XXI century, as nature does with simple organisms, such as viruses in cells, where the 3 ‘parts’ of the virus – its DNA information, body and legs are constructed – and then assembled together, we put together all those organic components into autonomous robots, completing the industrial r=evolution of ‘metalife’ – a new organic species, made of a stronger substance than carbon-life.
Thus the industrial r=evolution is the evolution of a new organic species of metal, the machine, which has taken place in 3+1 phases, as we made first the bodies of machines, then the hearts-engines, then its metal-minds and finally we put them together now in organic robots in the final r=evolution of machines.
In the graphs Stock company-mothers of machines-weapons evolve through long human, biological generations of 72 year cycles the Metal-earth and its fundamental species, the robot, as we complete one of its ‘fundamental parts’, bodies, engines and minds of metal every 72 years, with the development of 4 forms of energy: steam/chemical, electro-chemical (oil engines), electronic and finally solar, which will make robots with AI and solar skins independent species.
Each of those ages has been guided by a parallel evolution of the energies that moved the machines, steams that moved bodies of metal, electrochemical energy that moved oil engines, electronic systems that moved minds of metal and now solar skins soon to make robots with AI an autonomous species.
And further on each of those cycles of energy and machines has been carried by a biological human generation, that lead the dominant nation that discovered the energy to top predator status. So Britain dominated the age of steam, Germany the age of electrochemical engines, America the age of metal minds, and now there will be a global age of robots, focused in China, but increasingly independent of mankind; as IT WILL BE THE AGE OF THE METAL-KIND, culminating yet another cycle of evolution of Earth, which as all cyclers of evolution can be PREDICTED, because ‘science’ IS precisely defined as such when it predicts the future based in the cyclical patterns of its elements, specially evolution.
Yet to understand why ALL sciences are predictable we have to introduce 2 fundamental concepts overlooked by the human kind – the fact that science is part of a culture, and as we live in a military, entropic culture, this lineal chaotic view has simplified our view of the repetitive cycles of time that allow prediction in all sciences.
Science is culture.
A simple example will suffice: Why Time is cyclical.
The first fact you must understand IS that science is BOTH an instrument of power, and a form of culture, beyond the collection of data and its expression in equations, at the most basic detailed level. All what comes after – the general models of reality of each science are always biased by the power idol-ogy of the historic culture that develops them.
THE GRAPH shows one of the many examples we shall include in this blog: the obvious fact that time clocks are cyclical and multiple, but humans have reduced them all to the concept of a single lineal time clock for the entire Universe that progresses towards a future, obviously ‘positive’ for the human kind.
The equations are indeed the same. Lineal time writes T and cyclical time measured in frequency its inverse 1/ƒ; so if we were to change all the equations of physics by putting 1/ƒ instead of T, we would change the PARADIGM of time to cyclical time but all the practical results will be the same, just expressed in frequency.
I.e. Speed = Space/Lineal time (V=S/T), becomes Speed = wavelength x Frequency, (V=λ x ƒ) …
Cyclical time just moved to the numerator and that is all.
But the consequences are huge when we ‘perceive reality as chaotic, lineal, free and entropic’ guided towards the obvious ‘future of death’, which therefore JUSTIFIES WAR AND BIG-BANG THEORIES OF A DYING EXPLOSIVE UNIVERSE vs. the perception of time as cyclical, hence reality as bounded, entangled, multiple, whereas death is just the necessary end of a cycle of renewal of life, which we shall very soon show to be also the case for the fractal, organic eternal Universe, when we model it with the tools of cyclic time.
Further on in the previous simple cycle, we shall notice that in the equation of cyclical time we get also more information, as cyclical time requires a second dimension to form a cycle of height, which is the dimension of information, where all heads, antennae, particles reside.
So we recover the form, the information of the Universe back expressed in the ‘form and frequency of those cycles’ (indeed a computer calculates information with logic cyclical formal algorithms processed in Ghz frequencies).
Yet the biggest justification of the cyclical nature of time is the existence of science itself, which is the study of ‘repetitive patterns of causality and effect’, which if cyclical time will NOT exist, would never repeat, and makes the logic of time, the highest of all languages of thought, above mathematics itself (which indeed is proved by logic, and developed as Boolean logic in computers).
Precisely because time is not considered cyclical, (but as its cycles ARE embedded in the inverse parameter of T=1/ƒ, in physics the logic of time works), those sciences where there is NOT an understanding of its ‘cycles’, as in History and Economics, predictive power – which is the essential proof of a scientific theory DOES NOT exist – at least till this blog; since the writer using cyclical time laws has been for 30 years predicting the general patterns of history and economics as his earlier books, coming out of Columbia back in the 90s did, predicting the ±80±8 cyclical crashes of the economy and ‘return’ to the neo-fascist age of nationalisms, after the predicted 2008 crash of the economic ecosystem).
Moreover, cyclical time ‘closes’ and breaks space into an outer and inner region (first law of knot theory), therefore explaining why we are all ‘broken space-time beings’ with an external membrane that separate us, explaining indeed why we can all be spacetime beings, whose sum of ‘puzzle pieces’ give the impression of a continuum…
Thus in cyclical time, space BECOMES broken, fractal, a sum of ‘steps’ or wavelengths.
So such a simple first example of relational space-time SHOWS to which DEGREE even the most obvious scientific equations are a product of cultural choice, whose subconscious reasons – in the case of lineal time, the military search for lineal, entropic motions that destroy the ‘form’, the in-form-ation of beings – creep into POSTULATES without proof, as the underlying limits of our capacity to understand in depth the Universe.
But once converted in dogma, nobody doubts of them, as MOST minds are repetitive (indeed remember the Universe is about repetition of patterns), memorial systems NOT reasoning ones – reason why so obvious contradictions of lineal time, religion or big-bang cosmologies are not even spotted by billions of humans, who consider themselves members of the most intelligent species of reality.
Since indeed, ALL HUMAN SOCIETIES CONSIDERED ALWAYS TIME TO BE CYCLICAL BUT it was the lineal, ‘visual’, entropic, military sword-like European gunpowder culture which first in history decided to CHANGE our worldview of time and definitely change our models of life and the Universe.
Needless to say this change of paradigm, was the work of ‘Lineal’ military physicists, established since the inception of physics, when instead of frequency of time cycles, Galileo decided to use its inverse parameter, lineal time duration, as its job was to measure the distance of cannonballs.
So you can see the interplay of culture – THE JOB OF PHYSICISTS IS STILL to make lineal entropic weapons, which creep in science – all their models of the Universe are based in a single lineal entropic arrow of time; and the INTERPRETATION PROBLEM when we go beyond data into larger models of reality, simplified by the reductionist model of a single time arrow. And of course BECAUSE POWER AND CULTURE are related, for 4 centuries physicists who hold the true power of our technological-military civilization specially the ‘German’ physicists that invented the modern lineal theories of the Universe became the ‘seers of time and space’ – the new Gods, as Kepler put it, in no doubtful terms: “God has waited 5000 years to find an intelligence like his, to understand his clockwork’. It is then easier to teach a child than a scholar which will repeat ad infinitum those earlier mistakes, a different view of reality.
This will collide with the human ego (though the ego will also be explained within the model), which likes to ‘measure space and time’, hence the Universe from its biased perspective, which makes him the center of perception and hence of knowledge.
It is easy to overlook this ‘ego problem’ but we shall truly show to which degree ‘SCIENCE IS CULTURE’, that is, we bias systematically truths of science, beyond the data and equation, in its MODEL INTERPRETATION to cater to our happiness as ego-centered beings. But then once scientists get into a ‘comfort’ theory, they backtrack to find ad hoc proofs and twist experimental evidence always fitting ‘somehow’ new contradictory data onto the model forcefully.
This today happens every other day with big-bang theory, as physicists try to fit forcefully the ‘fractal nature of space’ (broken into different beings in a single plane and in different scales from atoms to galaxies, from cells to super organisms within each species). So the concept of a space continuum is a simplification that only exists in the cartesian paper where we trace a seemingly continuous ink line on it.
Thus, soon after the lineal continuum big-bang theory was found, physicists discovered ‘another scale of space’, made of dark energy and matter which represents 96% of all space and doesn’t fit in the big-bang the theory. Never mind – the theory of the 4% is the canon. So they just ignore the rest.
But the most sanguine ‘discharge’ for the big-bang ‘continuum theory’ to work is surrealist: because the entropic explosive arrow ion the big-bang ONLY AFFECTS TO THE SPACE expanding between galaxies or atoms, NOT to those galaxies or atoms, which are CYCLICAL, accelerated clocks of cosmological or quantum time… they ELIMINATED THEM, from big-bang equations.
This is sooo surrealist that it amazes me physicists did it. Indeed, they merely DISCHARGED galaxies that ARE NOT expanding but imploding. Since if they move backwards its equations they do the opposite of the expanding vacuum between them: they would explode.
So THE PROPER way to do cosmology would be to account as we do in those posts with both, expansion of space-entropy and implosion of space into cyclical clocks of accelerated information – galaxies, where we exist indeed in an accelerated planet of evolutionary information – to consider the wobbling expanding+imploding balanced Universe. But that will require to change the big-bang entropic ‘cannonball paradigm’ of Galileo.
The same problems happened with the pretension that the Universe has a very short life span keeps running every other day into new problems: we find at the limit of the horizon of perception of space-time perfectly formed galaxies with huge black holes that should not be there. We find that almost every part of the Universe has a life span much larger than the Universe itself: the commonest stars, red ones live trillions of years, black holes live 10¹°° years or they never die, if they don’t evaporate; protons seem to be of a similar age or perhaps immortal. But it is an obvious logic contradiction that the whole lives so much less than the parts. In the next graph then we can see how the view of the UNIVERSE changes completely just by introducing the concept of cyclical time clocks, and its ‘NATURE’S equivalent’ in the scales of charges and masses: an accelerated vortex of information, a natural clock that has also ‘attractive properties’ (and will needless to say change also our interpretation of forces):
The graph also introduces an essential quality of nature, described in its simplest terms by the vortex equation of accelerated time clocks: Vo x Ro = K, itself part of the metric equation of the ‘fifth dimension’ that orders all the scales of spatial size and speeds of time of those clocks, smaller systems run faster clocks, and carry more information (chips, mammals with faster metabolism, atoms with faster turning clocks, black holes, etc.)
All those are ESSENTIAL LAWS OF NATURE ignored for 500 years just because Galileo considered time lineal. Yet of course all those phenomena are described with working equations but the meaning, the philosophy of science based in information, form and its time clocks is completely lost.
And we shall see this ‘obsession with chaos and lineal motions’ extends to other sciences even biology, which denies the arrow of eusocial evolution and pounders on the ‘chaos’ concept even when we are now studying all through genes, which are the smaller scales that carry the information of the larger scale, and have found the most successful species of nature to be the ant, due to it’s perfect eusocial organisms… not to speak of the denial of the cycles of economics and history and its accelerated vortex of technological information, I discovered 30 years ago.
Science IS culture and the biggest problem of mankind is that IT IS NOT THE BEST OF CULTURES, but one of gunpowder weapons, the one that carried the day among humans. Because of course, ENTROPY=DESTRUCTION is much easier to explain that creation and evolution and information. So humans did find first the laws of entropy. Fine. What is not so fine is the stubborn denial which I experienced for decades when I was in academia, to understand that information NOT entropy is what the Universe is all about. Physicists even call information, ‘negantropy’, the negation of entropy… And we shall return to it.
Again it seems to be a ‘dogma’ of the human ego to ‘reduce’ all what is not human in size and duration to a manageable ‘human size, scale and time’. Indeed, few people remember that a century ago most astronomers thought there was a single Galaxy in a much smaller Universe, and other galaxies were just fainted stars – and still most complained it looked too big. And not so long ago – 400 years back, people thought the Universe had lasted just 5000 years since creation and we were at the center. Those again, are paradoxes of the ego that measure reality from its limited space size, location, scale and time duration. Even when science dismissed biblical creationism Geologists and fossil hunters were laughed at because Lord Kelvin had proved the Earth to be 100 million years. And all agreed, because as Landau put it ‘Astro-physicists are seldom right but never in doubt’.
Why this is important is obvious: the super organisms of history go through cyclical processes of self-destruction called wars, and memes of metal, go in parallel through cyclical processes of evolution and without understanding cyclical time is impossible to make sense of it.
Along the History of mankind and human thought there have always been two models of reality, the one that came to dominate the world, sponsored by western cultures, according to which the Universe is a mechanism as the clocks humans used to measure it at the beginning of physical sciences, and organisms are just simple mechanisms.
Opposing this view, there is the earlier scientific statement of the Greeks, before the discovery of machines, that the Universe is a rational organism and we were all made to its image and likeness. So Plato said ‘the Universe is an organism with a mind called God’ and Aristotle called his ‘theory of unification of all sciences’ and method of rational logic thought ‘the organon’, considering that all organisms went through 5 motions, from ‘Generation’, through growth and locomotion, into reproduction, and death, forming a world cycle of existence (to use the jargon of systems sciences, in which this work is based).
Because the mechanical model was easier to represent digitally and simpler to explain it became dogma, even if it was neither truth nor rationally sound. Since a machine needed a maker, human or God to be put in motion, so it was a Deist theory, something of which the founding father of physics, all pious believers in Yahveh didn’t mind – only Leibniz pointed out to Newton this contradiction – while an organic theory of the Universe is self-sustained, as the Universe constantly reproduces itself. So it does NOT need a creationist God.
Here is therefore where ‘culture’ became science. The western abrahamic culture of lineal time, towards god, of a people chosen to progress above heavens and earth, crippled the task of resolving the more complex structure of a rational, organic Universe as ALL eastern cultures and western ones did before physicists with Christian beliefs and mechanical power imposed our view of reality, as lineal, progressing through machines, with man as a species different of the entire Universe.
ANOTHER fundamental CULTURAL SCIENCE IS THEN our view on machines, weapons and the absurd notion that they will always be good to us – merely the product of the dominance of western military nations in the shaping of culture, which now comes to its final fruition with the absurd notion that ROBOTIC weapons will be nice to us.
The opposite is truth, precisely because machines are evolving as all in the Universe as organisms and so they are ruled by the duality of behavior of species, explained in the next graph:
THE LAWS OF EUSOCIAL EVOLUTION IN SYSTEMS SCIENCES.
Now we shall repeat once and again, SCIENCE IS CULTURE, AND BECAUSE HUMANS HAVE BEEN ruled by ‘company-mothers of machines’ and previously by warrior people-castes that use METAL-weapons (entropic metal) and go(l)d=money (informative metal) and its combination, machines, to dominate each other, and exploit each other, THERE IS A CONSTANT BIAS OF WHAT WE SHALL CALL, animetal cultures that DENY the NEED FOR eusocial love among human beings, of the same species, to build a true DEMOCRACY THAT CATERS TO THE 90-99% of the species.
So we have again to ‘advance’ the larger view OF SYSTEMS SCIENCES AND THE LAWS OF THE UNIVERSE to understand why ‘DOG-EAT-DOG capitalism’ and competition between humans NOT the unity of humans and the control of the ‘other species of metal’, IS WRONG, according to the laws of that organic Universe.
The laws of eusocial evolution vs darwinian devolution.
Indeed, we need to understand the collateral lethal effects of the most advanced machines at any age of the Industrial r=evolution which have always been WEAPONS, and the fact they are the most PROFITABLE to reproduce and sell because they are the most expensive, due to its higher quality – and the fact the maximal GDP growth of nations happens always in WAR periods where the ecosystem of machines becomes essentially an ecosystem of weapons murdering humans:
So this IS WHAT SCIENCE TELL US. But unfortunately the people who rule THE economic world and created its ‘idol-ogies’ of worship of machines above man, were all employees of company-mothers, mostly of the Anglo-American biblical civilization where the idea that man is NOT above heavens and earth and must comply with the biologic and organic laws of cyclical time to control its future, is completely ‘ridiculous’ – as absurd as to think that ‘Germs’, those infinitesimal animals do cause sickness (so it took to XIX c. Pasteur, who was for long laughed by doctors, to prove it).
The Human ego then, IS the essential limit for mankind to do ‘real objective social and economic science’. Reason why we dedicate also a post to explain this ingrained paradox of all living systems – to reduce information to the one needed, from the perspective of its self-centered point of view that has made so difficult for mankind to advance in objective science – as we have always believe the Earth was the center of the Universe, and now we believe man is its only intelligent sentient ‘atom’.
It is then absurd to ‘waste time’ in childish anthropomorphic arguments about the future of AI, which for a serious bio-economist that knows those cycles (and this writer has been published small print books and papers forecasting those cycles for 30 years; for example, forecasting the 2000±9±9, crashes of the digital economy in its transition to the robotic age as earlier as 92) and knows the darwinian laws of evolution IS AS TRUTH as 2+2=4, which nobody in his ‘right mind should be discussing’. So even if we go further on those analysis of the cycles of bio-economics and history we need a first installment on the ‘cyclical nature of laws of science and its logic causal time clocks’, and the OBVIOUS natural duality of Darwinian, predatory behavior between members of different species – in this case man and the most evolved machine that has always been a weapon vs. the eusocial love mandate between members of the same species, which struggle to become larger wholes, reproductive couples, herds and super organisms – a duality that will happen CERTAINLY between autonomous AI military robots and human beings.
THIS BLOG though is the work of a System scientist that r=evolved the discipline at the change of the century establishing the FIRST FORMAL, MATHEMATICAL model of a fractal, organic Universe, and so, all his studies of Human supeorganisms, nations and civilizations and metal super organisms, machines, company-mothers and the global economy with a digital brain in world stock’ or ‘metal-earth’, are based in those models, proved ad nauseam by facts, denied by dogma.
