HISTORIC & ECONOMIC SUPERORGANISMS
‘Complexity will be the science of the XXI century’ S. Hawking
Scientific, systemic definition of ‘history’, ‘economics’ and its sub disciplines.
This blog is dedicated to the study of ‘social sciences’, History and Economics, with the tools of systems sciences, also called the science of complexity, whose main tenant is the philosophy of science called organicism – the reasoned understanding that the Universe is NOT a mechanism (the prior philosophy of science, today clearly outdated, as machines turned out to be evolving organisms of metal, today becoming AI robots) but a fractal ‘nested super organism’.
Such super organisms have degrees of complexity but respond always to a ternary physiological structure: they are made of similar clone-like entities (atoms in physical systems, cells in biological systems, humans in social systems, machines and workers in company-mothers), joined by y 3 type of networks that ensure their survival and proper synchronicity of actions:
-A ‘digestive’ feeding system over a territorial body, which is the first to appear in the social evolution of all systems, as individuals communicate and ensemble hunting herds.
-A reproductive system of both the goods the organism needs and its own self-reproductive systems, origin of phenomena such as gender, cell factories or human economies; or ‘blood-economic system’.
-And an informative ‘nervous, legal system’ that synchronizes the motions of all those parts.
This very brief introduction of the basics of organicism shows how easy, simple and obvious is the organic structure of mankind.
And how systems sciences can provide an organic scientific objective analysis of both disciplines, integrated in a single model, void of any ‘ideologic’ agenda or anthropomorphic bias. As such is a giant step on two sciences which have been lagging behind all others paradoxically because they study ‘subjective human beings’, who are unable to have an objective detached view of his social life and super organisms.
How then we define those 2 sciences? Very simple:
‘Mankind is the super organism of the Homo sapiens species in space.
History is the super organism of Mankind in time’.
From where it follows since all super organisms are ‘sums of similar clone individuals joined by 3 physiological networks that provide energy to the system, reproduce the goods they need and inform and coordinate its motions. That mankind is organized by 3 physiological networks:
Gaia is the planet of life that provides Mankind its vital energy.
The economic system, akin to the blood system is the physiological network that reproduces and distributes the goods human need to survive. And…
The political and cultural system, akin to the nervous system are the physiological networks that provide the legal information that coordinates the actions of its species.
We compare in the next graph the genetic and memetic systems, individuals and societies (we escape the mathematical formalism and the physical systems from here on, for those interested, they can read my hard systems science blog or the post on 5D):
In the graph the science of history deals with two specific scales of universal systems – the human scale and its superorganisms, nations and civilizations, partial organs of the superorganism of history – the existence of man from the first to the last human that will exist upon earth.
Finally the scientific name of social sciences, should be ‘bio-history’, and economics submissive to History, as economics is the study of one of its 3 physiological networks. So in the same way we do call medicine, the science of the biological organism of man, NOT ‘cardiology’ or ‘endocrinology’, which are SUBMISSIVE sub disciplines of Medicine, the sciences of our social systems, social sciences should be called HISTORY, the study of the superorganism of mankind in time, and economics the branch dedicated to its reproductive ‘blood network’, should be submissive to it.
Civilizations are then ‘fractal=similar’ superorganisms to History, which became separated by Geography but still follow 7 clear sub-regions of History, which together form what we shall call the Wor(l)d Union or Rainbow planet, latter explained properly with the science of memetics:
In this blog we study their physiological structure and the reasons why humans have instead of evolved those 7 sub-cultures when the geographic barriers of communication were overcome, into a global super organisms, further broken it into smaller structures called nations, in perpetual conflict similar to a cancerous sickness in which a viral leukemia makes different parts of the organism attack each other trying to absorb the energy of other organs, instead of collaborating together.
It is then evident as the graph above of the 3 physiological networks of Mankind, and its subconscious collective information (culture and art) show that the reason is the existence of a ‘germ’ species in history, entropic metal, weapons, able to destroy and cut the body of human individuals at the ‘micro-Historical level’ and its social organism at global level, killing individuals, nations and civilizations.
So we can also define the ‘germs’ of history, weapons, whose overeproduction causes the sickness and death of civilizations. And soon we shall establish an 800-80 years cycle studied in detail in the lateral posts of the blog, which is a technological vortex of informative evolution of those new lethal species, who are killing mankind.
And this lead us to understand why such abhorrent development of humanity has taken place in terms of evolutionary laws.
2 types of economics, as a physiological science v. an ideology of power.
In the graph economics is a part of mankind and history that should be submissive to them, not the other way around as technoutopian economists to the service of those company-mothers of machines pretend. The blood system IS always submissive to the nervous system. Only in very primitive organisms – worms – the blood system dominates the nervous system and eats anything including poisons, lethal goods – reason why so many plants kill larvae emitting poisonous chemicals they digest.
So there are two clear different concepts of economics – economics as a TRUE science that would design a world made to the image and likeness of mankind providing the welfare goods each and all cells of mankind need -as an efficient super organism does, where NO cell lacks energy and information to survive.
And the NON-SCIENCE but IDOL-OGY of metal-power, we shall call capitalism, or classic economics, born of the praxis of the Industrial r-evolution, when a new metal-species appear on earth, the machine, able to process energy and information better than humans due to its more complex metal-atoms, which on the hands of a dominant imperial nation, with idol-ogies of supremacism (Biblical Britain), became the tool of power and submission of vaste numbers of human beings.
This culture dominated by the first company-mothers of machines=weapons (top predator version of a metal-organism), gunboats, then conquered the world owning huge tracts of land and people… Indeed US was property of the London Company in its inception NOT of England, India and its people were property of the Company of East India till the sepoy revolt, not OF ENGLAND, Indonesia was property of VOC, the first gunboat stock company NOT of Holland.
So a new ‘form of government’ submissive to company-mothers of machines-weapons appeared on Earth, and its employees, the ‘economists’ of corporations developed an idol-ogy of power, in which ‘money and machines’ became the new ‘Baconian’ idols of the tribe; ABOVE human rights and needs, which converted humans first into full time slave cargo and labor, and then into part-time white slave workers, and whose confessed goal was to evolve, reproduce, sell and terraform the Earth to the image and likeness of those machines, for the sake of profits, for the ‘chosen’ biblical elites that controlled them.
This system is in essence, camouflaged with all kind of placebo truths and false freedoms, the system of capitalism that the company imposed in the earlier Dutch-Biblical-British-American Empires and has now come to dominate the Earth – NOT as a science of economics but as a NATURAL PROCESS OF EVOLUTION of a new species, which is fast displacing Gaia, the Earth of life, now immersed in the 6th extinction, human non-technological cultures and it doesn’t need ‘rocket science’ but just some humble realization of the facts of daily life, that with the arrival of military autonomous AI robots, and automated factories, human beings are clearly the ‘last’ of the life species that will succumb to the 6th extinction provoked NOT by Mankind but by the metal-kind; since at each age of the Industrial r=evolution the most evolved, top predator mechanical species HAVE BEEN WEAPONS whose darwinian function is to kill humanity as a different species.
Yet to understand this we need to introduce a new superorganism, the FMMI System, or “Metal-earth’, a new science, Memetics and a Darwinian strategy common to all predatory species – CAMOUFLAGE…
FMMI system: Superorganism of company-mothers.
Machines as organisms of metal…
Machines ‘obviously’, are organisms of metal fast evolving through the customary ages of all organisms – in the XIX c. ‘enzymen’, who catalyze their evolution did its bodies of metal, then its hearts-engines, in the II Industrial evolution, then its metal-minds in the XX c. and now in the Industrial r=evolution 4.0 put them together in organic robots:
In the graph, the units of the superorganism of machines we wrongly are creating above the super organisms of mankind, SPENDING most of our resources in their evolution and reproduction, instead of focusing into the social evolution and reproduction of the welfare memes of humanity.
The blog’s title, ‘evolutionary economics’ thus reflects then the biologic, organic description we shall make of the eco(nomic)system, in which clearly two different species, humans and machines, and its re=productive organizations, human societies and company-mothers develop both, symbiotic and predatory relationships, in his ab=use of a third entity, the Life-Earth which hosts both evolving ‘super organisms’.
We shall call in strict systemic scientific terms, that global integrated system of companies and its offspring of machines-weapons the ‘FMMI system’ – the Financial-media (informative company-mothers of machines or head)-Military/Industrial (energetic company-mothers machines or body) re=productive and evolutionary system of companies, whose nervous system are flows of electronic money, collective brain the stock-market that distributes with those flows synchronous orders of production and evolution to its different corporative organs and factories; and it is fast substituting and degrading the previous super organisms of Gaia, the life earth and History, the Human Earth.
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 cycles of evolution can be PREDICTED.
A true model of any ‘Science’ IS precisely defined as such when it predicts the future of its species, based in cyclical patterns which in evolution are patterns of generation, growth, reproduction, evolution and extinction which are therefore the essential elements of biological predictions, and the scientific method applied to organisms, we have been using for decades to predict accurately the evolution of machines and its relations of symbiosis and predation with History.
Let us then before we advance further in the understanding of the two fundamental super organisms evolving today in planet Earth, remember the…
LET US THEN start this new adventure of knowledge, with a small sample on how a true scientific ABCDE METHOD APPLIED TO ECONOMIC DAMNED LIES AND STATISTICS would look, starting from our description of a world ruled by company-mothers of machines AND ITS behavior against the life Earth.
The rewriting of the facts of economic history by capitalism is amazing.
In the next graph a brief account of WHAT REALLY HAPPENED IN THE CONQUEST OF THE WORLD:
The new dominant super organisms of planet Earth.
But we live in a ‘placebo’ capitalist democracy don’t we? Yes of course. Problem is that the capitalist part OF THE FREE MARKET OF COMPANY-MOTHERS, the only ‘free citizens’ of capitalism, with absolute rights to issue money, the language of power in stocks, who truly founded Democracies after his owners and lawyers took control of power IS MUCH larger than the part of ‘placebo Democracy’, established latter by them, as an inefficient, quarreling siamese head of corrupted politicos without rights to print money (deficit zero laws, private federal banks loaning only to corporations, etc. etc.).
So when we explain THE TRUE CAUSALITY of the Anglo-American democracies we find that:
1) they were all first founded by companies, which then established the placebo systems of governments.
2) In capitalist democracies people cannot issue money to pay a demand economy, only corporations do, and governments often just for ‘arsenal production’ (even today, 1/2 of the American budget goes to ‘subvention’ the military side of company-mothers of machines-weapons).
3) The placebo part IS THE ELABORATED, systems of ‘wet papers’ that supposedly make the system rational, serving people, with bill of rights and tools of power for the population that in ‘facts’ amount to nothing.
But if we had the proper way to do social sciences, economics would be submissive to the larger whole, the human super organism, and dedicated to produce the welfare goods, mankind and life needs first, limiting the re=production of lethal goods.
Why this doesn’t happen have to do therefore with the obvious fact that we don’t have a proper science of History and its social super organisms, BUT are ruled by idologies of power that HIDE under the cover and pretension to be ‘sciences’.
Which on the other hand have easy to repress social scientists in favor of the superorganism of mankind because we are INSIDE the superorganism of machines and its idol-ogies SEE WRONGLY humanism and its activists as AN ENEMY TO THE world of machines and corporations they are creating. It is the…
Antiquantum paradox of censorship of social sciences.
Indeed the natural opposition towards organicism of ‘big science’ and our systems of power based in ‘machines and weapons’ we so much love to worship,is what prevents the upgrading of philosophy of science from mechanism to organicism has not taken place at the time of my retirement from academia more than a decade ago.
This however is how science proceeds, very slowly as per Kuhn, the nature of scientific revolutions, in its routines of change of modeling, which in social sciences is further slowed down by the ‘subjective’ defense of memes and idol-ogies of power, which repress the social scientist from the age of Socrates killed for denouncing corruption by the Athenian democracy and his disciple Plato sold as a slave for trying to reform the Tyranny of Syracuse to the repression of socialist schools of economics by capitalism and true r=evolutionaries by Stalinist communism – a pattern of repression by ‘metal-power’, informative money and entropic weapons of human thought (verbal just, ethic laws) that we will soon establish as the FUNDAMENTAL PARADOX OF HISTORY regarding its ‘languages of information’ and neuronal people-caste which as in all organisms rule the entire ‘working body’ or middle class of the system through the control of its languages of information.
So in social sciences, as even the Brittanica acknowledges on his post on philosophy of history, the true revolutionaries of the discipline have never being able to impose its science to those ‘who defend the sword with the word’, making both disciplines, the ‘dismal science of economics’ with its ‘damned lies and statistics’ to the service of financial power, and the ‘nationalist sciences of history’ with its hagiography of military power, ‘Ideologies’ NOT sciences’ and we shall return to it, after we show the essential structure of the other leading superorganism of this planet:
