HISTORIC & ECONOMIC SUPERORGANISMS
‘Complexity will be the science of the XXI century’ S. Hawking
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– the reasoned understanding that the Universe is NOT a mechanism (the prior philosophy of science, today clearly outdated, as machines turned out to be evolving organisms of metal, today becoming AI robots) but a fractal ‘nested super organism’.
The main advantage of those models of social sciences is the fact that actually an organic model is predictable, unlike the abstract subjective models that pass today as social sciences. The proof of such predictability can be found in the work of this writer which for 30 years have been forecasting the evolution of machines, its company-mothers and history with extreme accuracy both in dates and tendencies. Why then biohistory and bio economics are not standard science has to do not so much with the human capacity to understand those models but with the human ego, the repetitive memes of mankind and the censorship natural to all organisms in which the internal ‘cells’ cannot easily escape the control of the ‘Informative neurons’, in a social organism, the people-castes that control the nervous=legal and blood=financia systems of society. In other words, humanity has not evolved ‘nicely’ a proper superorganism of history, which requires an urgen reform – a cure, to serve mankind and its needs. But those in control of the legal and financial languages and the systems they established won’t give up power and commit to a reform that could improve the future of our species.
So bear with me this brief introduction to the 3 ages of Earth and the cycles of the Industrial revolution of human national generations and the physiological networks of mankind. We shall start by the easiest to grasp cycles of national evolution:
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:
In the graphs a very fast synopsis of the creation of the FMMI superorganism of company-mothers; that is the head of Financial-Media informative company-mothers & its offspring of machines & the body of Military-Industrial energetic machines & entropic weapons. And the capitalist placebo democracies and its peace and war cycles that develop them.
This superorganism is NOT mankind. Mankind plays there a role as an ‘enzyman’, which terraforms the Earth, and so we needed to bring before introducing both the superorganism of the metal-earth and the superorganisms of mankind a graphic analysis of that process of terraforming from the perspective of the 3 ages of Planet Earth as an evolving superorganism.
As we said the enormous advantage of the biologic models of this blog is that unlike the wishful thinking, fancy self-serving anthropomorphic thin air talk of our economists and politicians we are based in ‘actual laws’ of reality – the laws of evolution, biology, systems sciences and theory of organisms. All of them are real ‘sciences’ – that is, rational models, who can predict the future of economic and social systems, unlike the abstract ‘subjective, anthropomorphic’ analysis that today pass as social sciences but only accomplish the first ‘element of science’ – gathering of accurate data – and not always because of selfish agendas that distort the data.
Any science in epistemology is considered as such only if it predicts the future of the species it studies. To that aim it needs a scientific model that is realist and appropriate for the type of species we study. There are only broadly speaking two of such models – those of physical sciences which measure ‘lineal time locomotions’ – external translations in space; and biological sciences that measure ‘time evolutions’, changes which are internal to the being, organic, morphologic. Social sciences do not follow in its present format either of those 2 models – the measure of our locomotions as a species would be irrelevant; and the measure of our evolution has not bee practiced with rigor till this model, though it has egregious predecessors we shall explain.
The outcome is an evolutionary model of economics and history whose predictability has been proved for 30 years of accurate forecasts on the future evolution of machines and human beings, as the graph of one of the earlier books of the discipline a few paragraphs below can testify, with accurate predictions in the cover on the change of evolutionary phase from the age of ‘metal-minds’ to the age of robotics after a crash of the market (2008), followed by an age of neo-fascism and neocolonialism similar to the previous 30s fascist age and 2860s colonial age after the crash of the train and the car…. followed by an age of war…
The question then is why humans not only cannot develop a serious predictive science of history and economics but once it is found, they censor it emotionally: the single word that limits them is: EGO.
Man, as a predictable species, following laws of evolution and biology is NOT special, does not have an exceptional destiny, and it is inscribed in systemic, organic laws of evolution which are difficult to manage, the more so if as it happens humans do not tolerate laws of science that do not cater to their subjective, megalomaniac view of themselves as the center of the Universe. And yet because man is a biological species, which construct machines imitating its biological organ and functions, and it is part of a biological planet, whose ‘membrain’ – external crust which in organic systems is the sensorial most evolved part of the organism in terms of information – in which it is playing an obvious evolutionary role that can be predicted.
There is though also a question of methodology. The Universe is scalar, made of nested superorganisms inscribed in larger superorganisms, which have slower time cycles. What this means is the larger system programs the smaller faster system, with cycles of time of their own – in the case of Mankind and the planet mostly weather cycles. But the smaller system only attends to simpler direct causality. This brings the other HUGE limit of HUMAN intelligence understanding time: its short span of attention and belief in simple cause-event at the fastest, direct level of causality. The cycles we just have described are organic evolutionary patterns proper of long term cycles. And the cycles we shall bring to this blog are often long term cycles caused by the changes of the overall energy and information of the planet. The ‘humind’ scientist however can only predict the very short range of ‘derivatives’ in mathematical calculus, and direct causality, which does NOT go beyond the immediate cause consequence.
What then to do of the larger organic patterns of the Universe? Nothing when on top of that short-sightedness the human denies organic nature to everything that doesn’t have its CNO simpler atoms.
So to explain mankind reality as it is and the future as it will be while simple in terms of rationality will always collide with the EGO and Short-sightedness of human models.
Man of course if it were intelligent and ethic and humble enough to acknowledge all this and take control on its future by managing that evolution to his favor could have a better world, which is the last element of a proper scientific analysis of social sciences, once instead of wishful thinking and subjective idol-ogies of manifest destinies, it does understand what he is, where he is playing his existence and what are the restrictions, symbiotic and competitive relationships he established with machines, the Earth and its life beings.
AS SUCH there are 3±¡ ‘hierarchical levels’ in the understanding of History as a science, ‘above and below’:
- The study of the fractal organic Universe in which mankind is a nested superorganism made to its image and likeness. And Economics, its physiological re=productive network, akin to the blood system of reproduction of healthy welfare goods proper of any well designed superorganism of Nature.
- But this is NOT all the tale of the Planet Earth, which hosts a different evolving superorganism – the Metal-earth, the world of machines and weapons, which kicked its evolution in the XIX century and it is DIFFERENT from mankind, which makes things a big more complicated.
If the Industrial r=evolution of ‘metal’ did not happen, it would be very easy to define the superorganism of Mankind as the collective subconscious mind of Gaia, the life Earth, its body, whose veins of water, give us the welfare food we need to survive, in an agricultural civilization.
The world would be a sort of hippie paradise of ecological sustainability where those physiological networks would feed humanity, ruled by its legal nervous informative systems. But there is something else going on very fast on Earth – the birth of a third superorganism, so we have to define from the largest perspective of the planet a systemic equation of evolution with 3 elements:
Gaia (Life, relative past) < God=Mankind (History, relative present) > Metal-earth (FMMI companies of machines, relative future).
And so the fourth element of a serious science of history and economics is the analysis of the two possible outcomes the future has for mankind. One in which business as usual leaves the future to the evolutionary laws of Nature, which express in the form of capitalism, when considering the eco(nomic)system in which humans and machines interact and compete in labor and war fields, and clearly favors a future of machines, and a different outcome if humans truly were able to evolve together and control scientifically the planet, in which man could achieve a perfect superorganism of history maintained in a perpetual immortal present.
The equation of the 3 superorganisms of the Earth which form a worldcycle of evolution of information can be studied from many different perspectives and jargons. We can highlight that of:
- Classic economics, which as today sides clearly with the future of the Metalearth. Since it is the specific branch of economics, also called the ‘Idol-ogy’ of capitalism, developed by employees of company-mothers of machines, weapons and money that came to dominate the discipline, and hence the future of the economy, against humanist economics that catered to the needs of history, mankind in time.
- Human social sciences, which sides with History, but became repressed by company-mothers of machines and its placebo social institutions, bipartisan conflicting democracies and today is basically a useless set of secondary memes of political and economical correctness that do not even attempt to build real models of sciences.
- Politics, which pretends to serve mankind, but has become a placebo system that has given up the control of the social language of power, money to capitalism=classic economics=company mothers of memes of metal.
- Eusocial religions of love, which also sided with History and any of its smaller superorganisms, they call God, which are mostly in process of decomposition and hence in a defensive, inquisitorial mood.
- Ecological and biologic sciences, which sided with Gaia and observe its 6th and likely final extinction but have little power to shape the future.
- General Systems Sciences – this blog – which studies the relationships of symbiosis and predation between the 3 of them, analyzes all other jargons and sides with History; but that is a choice of the writer – a human being – since Systems sciences is objective and in fact is mostly used today by company-mothers to evolve as organic, efficient systems of re=production of machines, money and weapons.
The most advanced of those jargons is that of General Systems sciences, as it can make sense of all others. It is however in its most evolved form, developed by this writer at the turn of the century with his metric formalism of the scalar 5th Dimension of the organic Universe, ignored. We shall consider the 3 main reasons of its ignorance latter in this introduction.
The study of the 3 Superorganisms of Mother Earth thus is not as simple as it would seem, or rather it is difficult to transmit to human beings, which are basically ‘Imprinted’ by the biased worldview of companies of informative machines, which imprint overwhelmingly the money and audiovisual information, humans believe on; and hence humans are ‘a priori’ vaccinated to dismiss any non-placebo grown-up view of social sciences, and the future of this planet as it is. Or else they might feel unhappy given the fact that the biologic mandate of Company-mothers of machines and weapons is to reproduce and evolve a different species of mankind, which is merely used as an ‘enzyman’, a catalyzer of that process, as a worker=reproducer of machines and consumer=vitalizer and tester of its quality and evolution. So of course, humans are perfectly indoctrinated, like little children in a kindergarten with Orwellian newspeak about how wonderful is the ‘animal farm’, and how beautiful will be a future in which AI robots with solar skins will serve us the superior species, chosen of go(l)d through fictions that make so difficult to confront reality in an objective way. Ultimately at this stage of History, humanity has reached such a degree of infantilism that I am afraid to do serious social sciences is more or less like trying to teach Einstein’s relativity to toddlers playing with castles in the sand. And yet we shall try.
Still teaching social systems would also be easy if the 3 ‘cellular species’ of those 3 superorganisms, life animals and plants, human beings and machines were independent of each other, self-reproducing themselves. But to make things a bit more complicated machines are NOT yet – but close to – reproducing in automated company-mothers, but require the collaboration of ‘enzymen’, human workers=reproducers of machines that catalyze its evolution. SO mankind IS SPLIT between cultures that lean to the reproduction of life goods and cultures that lean to the reproduction of machines. Both do reproduce human beings, but because of their different orientation towards life and mechanisms, they are split in ‘Ideas’ and ‘worldview’ ever since the tree of metal appear in the Fertile Crescent, when the majority of ‘thinkers’ sided with Gaia, the tree of life (parable of Genesis).
So we need first to make a fast track analysis with the tools of cyclical time, of those 3 organisms. And to simplify our analysis we shall leave aside Gaia, the clear looser, now in its 6th and final age of extinction.
And now we can finally bring the real thing, the superorganisms of mankind, of History, the one and only God=subconscious collective of this planet worth to preserve which however as most humans now have become ‘enzymen’ and dedicate all its efforts to evolve the metal-earth, it has been thoroughly forgotten.
Scientific, systemic definition of ‘history’, ‘economics’ and its sub disciplines.
In graph the science of history deals with 2 specific scales of universal systems – the human scale and its superorganisms, nations and civilizations, partial organs of history – the existence of man from the first to the last human that will exist upon earth. We compare both human organisms and the genetic and memetic systems of individuals and societies: Both supœrganisms, the individual and collective society are parallel in its ages and collective minds (in History artistic forms of the ‘neuronal human beings’, those who think and see ‘better’, artists, writers and ethic prophets), and forms of death by germs in individuals and by the germs of history, weapons in social super organisms. Then we can define those 2 sciences:
‘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.
The science of economics AS A TRUE SOCIAL SCIENCE, is the science of the ‘re=productive, blood-like system’ of the organism of mankind in time, History, whose natural purpose would be to provide all human beings, citizens-cells of our superorganism, with the goods they need to survive and repress as blood-systems do the lethal goods that harm our body (weapons) and minds (hate memes, racist cultural memeplexes, fiction thought that isolate us and create virtual ‘mad-minds’) etc.
So history is mankind in time and its supœrganisms in space, are nations and civilisations. As 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.
So 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. So:
- War is the death of a supœrganism of history and weapons its ‘germs’, literally. They kill historic supœrganism and should be repressed. It follows that legal diplomatic dialog and ideally a process of evolution of nations into a global civilisation managed by supranational organisms, modelled in the way EU, the most advanced civilisation of history, and UNO had tried to achieve is the only way history can survive the relentless evolution of weapons of mass-destruction by avoiding absurd wars between nations. So weapons are the germs of civilizations, not incidentally carried mostly by germ(manic) tribes in Europe that have killed our civilization so many times in history. It is obvious that LETHAL GOODS MUST BE FORBIDDEN AS ORGANISMS DO WITH THEIR GERMS.
- Economics is the science of the blood-reproductive network of a super organism of history and as such IT MUST BE MODELED WITH THE LAWS OF PHYSIOLOGY REASON WHY IT IS EASY TO DEDUCE THAT AS ALL CELLS GET A MINIMAL UNIVERSAL SALARY IN OXYGEN, TO kick its reproduction of organic goods, HUMANS SHOULD ALL RECEIVE A UNIVERSAL SALARY TO DEMAND AND KICK THE PRODUCTION OF WELFARE GOODS. Capitalism then becomes an obvious cancerous system in which a small group of selfish cells, the bankers, issue all the money of society, or even worse, lethal germs are reproduced by company-mothers of machines=weapons.
- Informative legal systems are the nervous systems and as in Nature, they must rule over blood systems=financial systems. Capitalism is an aberrant system because ONLY PRIMITIVE WORMS allow the blood system to dominate the nervous system and produce=eat lethal poisons, the main cause of death of worms and capitalist societies (death by overproduction of weapons).
- Art and verbal thought, whose highest form is the law, is the mind of civilisations, which allows as the subconscious collective of a supœrganism to ‘monitor’ the state of the nation as it goes through three ages – an insight of the organic school of history that dates to Spengler and Toynbee. Hence the important of a humanist education of human beings. Artists and prophets of love, which use the visual and verbal=temporal languages of men are more important for history that technological scientists, as they are the neurons of History that explain us how to evolve socially healthy super organisms of history through communal sharing of energy and information – love religions. And this is proved since they live 3 ages/styles of art as individual minds do, the young age of dramatic simple art, the mature age of classic beauty and pleasure art and the angst, third age of excess of information.
So yes the organic view of history is not only a fancy model but a serious model that defines SCIENTIFICALLY THE PROPER WAY TO CONSTRUCT A PERFECT SUPERORGANISM OF HISTORY, BY CREATING PROPER ECONOMIC AND LEGAL SYSTEMS AND THE GOODS HUMANS NEED TO SURVIVE.
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.
And indeed, the main problem of mankind is a physiological sickness: the reproduction and evolution of the germs of history, lethal weapons that kill civilizations in rhythmic accelerated processes of overproduction and war; which if history were a science and politicians biohistorians would be repressed as all evolved organisms do, inhibiting the reproduction of lethal germs in its superorganisms, and promoting instead the overproduction of healthy welfare goods humans need to survive. Thus biohistory, besides describing the world as it is, a primitive system ill-evolved and dominated by the wrong memes, it also can easily design a better world just by imitating the way Nature has evolved its most perfect superorganisms…
