The concept of a ‘nation’ has nothing to do with a ‘culture’.
A nation is merely a section of the Global Financial-Military-Industrial Complex, and as such based in some ‘tribal decoupling’ of the unifying ideologies of nationalism (the tribe not the species as the ‘unit of solidarity’), capitalism (money, not the human language of the word as the language of values that emits the orders of society) and mechanism (the universe as a machine not an organic, complex system).
A culture is based in the natural, biological drives of life-human existence, and as such it is composed of ‘mores’ and ‘memes’ related to life and the human mind (art, literature, religion, sexual, food, social customs, language, etc.)
Today because we humans as a species are becoming extinct, first in our minds, soon in our bodies, as the final Kondratieff wave of robotics substitute us, cultures are becoming predated by nations, and within nations, the cultural, human component becomes repressed and extinct.
What this means is that the foundational ‘nations’ of the ideologies of the memes of metal, have become global and spread their memes to the rest of the world. The foundational nation of war memes (the Indo-European-> Germanic nation) and of capitalist memes (the Cananean->Jewish nation), are thus today global. The systems invented by the Assyrians, Indo-Europeans, Romans and Germans, who culminated in the propaganda of war and the rhetorics of repetition of ‘lies’, the visual advertising of weapons, the flags and eagles and symbols and uniforms of the nazis, has influenced all other armies.
The capitalist, usury, parasitic systems of property of human capital and exploitation and monopoly of creation of money, for which the jewish nation fought for millennia is now ‘dogma’ for each elite of each nation. And the world of machines, which combine the energetic and informative properties of gold and iron, and are making us obsolete as a species, invented by Britain is now global.
So it is the language and specific modes of ‘pan et circensis’ of the British nation (soccer and other sports). And yet, even though the British nation seems to be the founder of our present world, it is merely a daughter nation of the previous metal-master nations of Germany and Israel; based as those two other cultures were, in the repression of the memes of life, encoded in the Bible and the ‘epic’ of war and murder of the Germanic tribes.
In the graph we can see that genetic origin of the present world, which explains the hierarchical form of the global nation, as ‘first come first served’, meaning that in all systems the cells that first appear and use the genetic/memetic language that develop the organism, become the dominant cells of the system (in the body, they become the neuronal cells, in the cell, the central DNA genes, in history the 1%).
In this post we shall study in time the cycles of those leading nations, each one analyzed in more detail in other posts.
The cycles of Industrial nations.
Industrial Nations are not civilizations based in eusocial and life memes (religions of love, organic, Gaia-based societies) but artifacts created to foster war. The ‘fractal division’ of civilizations in nations, thus requires a horde of military murderers – a tribe of animetal warriors – to become the ‘1%’ of an aristocratic society, later converted in nations. The concept of nation was in fact born out of the Germ(anic) tribes of iron warriors that destroyed the Christian/Roman civilizations, dividing it into ‘tribal feuds’, the one of the tribe of the Franks – France; the one of the tribe of the Anglo-Saxons, England and so on. All those artificial nations had however a use: to evolve weapons, required to impose power over the 99% of ‘human beings’ and quarrel with other nations. For that reason, unlike civilizations based in eusocial and life memes, who survive each of the long cycles of history (800 year waves of evolution of weapon), nations die away at the end of each cycle in the ages of global wars, or suffer mutations in size and purpose.
Such nations can be unified according to the laws of superorganisms by an ‘informative language’, as they are based in ‘energetic=weapon memes’. And all systems unify ‘energetic herds’ from the perspective of an informative head/particle/system which delivers orders with a language of information on top of the energetic organs of the system. Thus military hordes of energetic warriors and its nations were historically unified into a Pax by the creation of a bigger military empire, or by a prophet of love that limited wafare between nations, as it happened in Europe with the Christian conversion of Germ(anic) tribes or in India with the conversion to Buddhism during the Asoka period.
When the modern age of the Industrial R=evolution kicked in, those military nations, would be unified by the new language of power, money, which substituted the law. And so a new type of global empire or civilization, neither based in a top predator military tribe (roman empire) or a verbal prophet of love (civilization) was born: the capitalist civilization, in which money and bankers rule over a series of ‘nations’, whose elite of politicos and military are in fact qislings of the multinational corporations, financial markets and dynasties of bankers that are on top financing their wars and national systems.
And so to talk of ‘nations’ in the age of globalization of capitalism, is a fantasy that merely hides the fact that all the nations of the west are part of a superorganism, the capitalist civilization, whose origin must be traced to the process of globalization of the jewish-protestant Go(l)d religion with the Jewish ‘nation’ and the Anglo-saxon ‘nation’ (wasp) on top. This is the structure that we shall describe in this section of the slave ideologies that make us evolve memes of metal instead of the human kind – a superorganism ruled by money and multinational corporations, which dominate a series of politicos, slaves of money, without rights to print it (deficit zero laws), which has:
– A head that controls all the languages of information of the civilizations, which today are no longer verbal but digital (digital money, digital science and digital information). This supranational entity is roughly formed by the Jewish nation who discovered go(l)d and its informative power to buy and sell human beings and the co-opted elites of aristocrats, stockrats and politicos of each western nation (USA, EU, old British Empire).
– A blind body of middle class, human ‘cells’, who understand nothing of the system, are fed the ‘freedom, national, flag, army and sports’ system of fictions to make you feel your tribe is more important than that of other humans and that you are free and your nation works for you.
– An enemy/energy class of beings exploited by capitalism, corporations and military armies… Today the less technological civilization of Islam; all forms of nature, and the immense majority of people belonging to the ‘obsolete’ African culture and 3rd world nations inside and outside our borders…
In this post we thus study beyond the mirage of ‘nationalism’, the superstructure of the economic ecosystem:
– IN Time through the evolution of the Kondratieff cycle that alternates nations on top of the economical wave, separated by periods of war between them,
– In Space, as a superorganism with a head, the nation that controls the informative language of the economic ecosystem, money, a body of workers/reproducers of machines and an energetic system – nations used for weapons consumption and Gaia, the life Earth, with no price; since ultimately the destiny of the whole organism is caused by the values of its language of information, metal and only secondarily by the wantings of its head, which controls and gives financial orders to its body organs and ‘feeds’ on its energy people.
As harsh as it sounds that is the meaning of globalization. Your cultures long ago died. Your economical nations have no real borders except for the needs of war.
Economic Nations are different from Human cultures. Human Cultures are based in memes of life and ‘human goods’ – art and ethics, verbal languages and social customs, food and housing styles, and many other different ‘expressions’ of the Biological Will of Man.
Economic Nations on the other hand are a shorter, more recent ‘invention’ that appeared with the arrival of metal-castes, warriors and go(l)d traders, who established first in the Middle East, then in Europe and finally in the world at large, the eco(nomic)system that today rules supreme.
As such they are based in ‘metal-memes’ and often ‘divide and win’ over cultures imposing a 1% elite of ‘metal-masters’ (animetals in the biological jargon) which dominate the culture, becoming an elite with extraordinary privileges. So the Christian culture was divided by an elite of ‘Goths’, dogs of Death, with iron memes, into the ‘French’ (those who had the tribe of the Franks on top), Germans, (those who had the German tribe on top), English (those who have the anglo-saxon warriors on top) and so on.
Nations and nationalism are therefore ‘faked cultures’ and ‘faked species’. We are not Homo Britannicus and Homo Hispanus and Homo Americanus, but Homo Sapiens, and even if we can be divided in the ‘canonical’ 6+1 cultures of our works on social, love religions and superorganisms of history, all those cultures are based in similar mandates of eusocial love and are not incompatible.
This also means that all economic nations have cultural human beings within it, and so in a complex analysis of bio-history we might consider the relationships between the ‘different cultures’ that co-exist in a nation. Such is the case of the USA, studied in more detail in other posts of this web, where all cultures of the world co-exist under the same ‘ideological nation’, which classifies them according to their use for the economy not to the value of their life memes (concepts those which as we have seen in many pages of this web are opposed).
Cultures normally don’t fight among them, even if it is a modern custom among nations to accuse cultures of fundamentalism. For example, Islam is not a culture that fights Christianity or even Judaism, but the ‘Arab nation’ fights the ‘jewish nation’ for land in Palestine/Israel.
Cultures however are easily corrupted into ‘inquisitions’ that accept weapons to defend its memes and go(l)d churches that use gold to expand their memes. Such corrupted religious cultures are mixed concepts between cultures and nations.
Nations however compete with their memes of metal with other nations to achieve global power. Hence the myth of the ‘conquerors of the world’, nations that expect to control the world with those memes – the Germans, Aryans and Goths, trying to conquer the world with weapons; the British with machines, the Jewish nation with go(l)d.
During the industrial r=evolution this competition between metal-nations of the same culture (the Jewish-Protestant, ‘Biblical civlization), is parallel to the 72 years cycle of evolution of energies and machines, which we shall study now in more detail.
If in the main reference article of the parallelism of the I, II and III Industrial R=evolutions, we made a detailed analysis of the economical evolution of machines and money, its 72 generational cycle and its fundamental energies, machines and crisis, in the previous graph, we show the ‘human, generational’ cycles of the nations that invented those machines and dominated the world during those 3 cycles, the Age of England, the Age of Germany and the Age of America:
In the graph, the I industrial R=evolution of Metal is dominated by Steam Engines that move the first huge bodies of machines, trains and steamers that require simple, big energies.
But the arrival of a more subtle, quantized form of energy, electricity, which can create broken bits of in-form-ation, allows the discovery of better engines. Steam leaves way to a combined form of chemical and electrical energy (oil inflamed by sparks in gas engines, electrical light bulbs, etc.); while engineers develop the 1st mental machines (phones, radios). It is the Electro-chemical Cycle of machines dominated by Germany which invented those engines.
Then, the vacuum tube and the chip—a diminutive brain of metal—start the III Evolution of Energy, the electronic age, which dominates the end of the XX century. It is the age of America.
And so in each of those ages those nations have been on top, as machines have their eviL twins, weapons, and so those nations used weapons trying to conquer the world.
But to complete this scheme of power, all those nations had always on top of their military borders, territories and armies that shaped their military-industrial complex – the backbone of their national pride – another nation, the top predator financial nation of the West, the Jewish nation, or more precisely the 1% elite of banker-priests of that nation, the Am Segullah, which merely moved from nation to nation with their capital, as the Kondratieff waves evolved. So we find on top of the City, the Am Segullah with their ‘president’ Rothschild, MP, to whom the king of england had to ask permission to visit, as the city was a nation within the british nation. And then we had in Berlin, Hamburg and Frankfurt, the Am Segullah bankers that controlled the German industrialization. And when Germany lost the war, they moved to New York, where they controlled the American nation.
Thus the complete name of the economic ecosystem and its nations is the Financial-Military-Industrial System, where the Financial system is controlled by the Jewish nation (all central bankers in the west, 80% of stock-firms and Hollywood producers, majority of CFOs in the 1000 fortune and CEOs of banks, when they represent hardly 0.3% of the people, 0,003% if we consider only its ‘am segullah’ elite.)
Which of all those 4 top predator nations of the ‘Biblical culture’ and its capitalist/mechanist/nationalist memes have survived better? Obviously the most powerful of those nations, the Jewish nation, which commands them all and has imposed through its control of information (mass-media, financial information) the present ‘dictatorship’ of bankers, the present ‘war on terror’ against the enemies of its own territorial backyard (Israel) and the myths and memes that feed our fictional brains.
But even their power is about to fade, as a new non-human nation, that of machines, the Metal-Earth and its future robotic citizens start to take shape.
Indeed, the XXI C. will be the IV Age of Solar Energy that will give autonomy to organic machines, robots and smart weapons that complete the Industrial R=evolution. And that nation will have on top again, a warrior caste, the Terminator machines and self-reproductive company-mother that produce them in the future ‘automated’ Yakutian or Himalayan wars between US and China or India and China that will close in this century the Human Experience.
Thus another biological division is needed to understand how those cycles of economics affect so deeply in a biological manner the cycles of history and the life of human beings—the distinction between ‘peaceful machines’ that human consume and ‘predator machines’ – weapons that consume men.
The 3 ages of each Kondratieff cycle.
Machines have 2 forms. Some are tools, symbiotic to humans. Some compete with men at work and kill us in war fields as weapons. Their biological nature shows in their dual forms and functions, which correspond to the destructive, Darwinian and creative, symbiotic arrows of living beings. Unfortunately, when machines mutate into weapons, History enters in a cycle of global wars. It has happened 3 times at the end of each Kondratieff cycles of machines’ evolution. Trains consumed in the 1830s became imperial armies to conquer the west and Africa in the 1860s. Cars consumed in the 1920s became tanks in the 1940s and computers consumed in the 1990s became surveillance systems and are now used to build terminators in the 20101 The process has immediate repercusions in all the ambits of history, whose ‘human characters’ become cynical neo-fascist politicians, who order war for profits with the connivence of the same factories that produced consumption goods and now switch to weapons. While artists, the human masters of the wor(l)d, suffer an age of angst and prophetic thought, as they see the cycles of history repeating themselves. So Picasso painted blue corpses that anticipated the Holocaust and Hollywood artists make movies about the extinction of man by terminators.
Machines are, as the parable of the Tree of Science explains, dual fruits, good tools and eviL=anti-Live weapons that can extinguish us. Hence the need to control and prune the tree of technology and allow only the re=production of machines harmless to man. On the other hand, weapons are the key to understand both, the cycles of history and economics, as they are willingly re=produced by the same company-mothers that make ‘peaceful machines’, given the fact that they have the highest prices.
Thus, company-mothers alternate the creation of good and bad fruits, according to the evolving, cyclical ages of those machines and energies. Unfortunately, since all forms of energy can be used as bombs and the most evolved machines are weapons, weapons are produced both, at the beginning and at the end of a Kondratieff cycle of energies. Thus, both, the end and the beginning of those cycles overlap in an age in which new energies are used to make bombs and old machines reach its evolutionary zenith as weapons, causing together the ‘war ages’ of those cycles.
In that regard, a scientific analysis of the evolution of each energetic generation of machines distinguishes, as in any biological species, 3±1 ages, parallel to the 3 organic ages of life, (energetic youth, reproductive maturity and 3rd, dying age):
— As all young, life forms, full of energy, machines are born as engines used in pure energy processes: pumps, heating systems or bomb devices.
— But youth is an age that evolves quickly into plenitude. So in their mature age, those engines are applied to transport machines. Then, the machine starts an age of massive re=production, diversification and peaceful consumption, the happy 20s or the happy 90s, similar to the mature, reproductive age of a living being.
— Finally, in its third age, the machine mutates, becoming a weapon that kills, consumes human beings and often becomes destroyed in the process. So happens to life in his third age, closer to death.
Thus, machines have 2 evolutionary forms, which mimic those of any species: the first, simplest machines are peaceful, consumption tools, whose energy and information enhance our own informative and energetic capacities. So we can talk farther with a mobile metal-ear and move faster with a car. Its reproduction and sale therefore brings times of peace and happiness to the countries that make them, as people experience the exhilarating feeling of being stronger and more intelligent thanks to them. They are the good fruits of the Tree of science.
But as machines evolve, their informative and energetic capacities grow so much that they harm the human body, becoming weapons; or they are used to ‘manufacture’ human opinion with their audiovisual information that ‘hypnotizes’ the collective subconscious. So, finally the industrial and military power uses the new weapons to kill and the new informative machines to program people into loving war (Hitler’s Radio-hate, hate-TV in this cycle.)
The 36 years peace/war cycle.
Let us consider the consequences of those cycles in history:
— Countries that discover and evolve each of those energies become the top predator nations of the world during each Kondratieff cycle: Britain mastered steam energy and dominated the Steam Age. Germany mastered electro-chemical energy and dominated the II Kondratieff cycle. America mastered electronics and dominated the age of mental machines (chips & TVs). Finally, the Robotic age that now starts will be dominated by Asian nations, till the arrival of The Singularity.
— Since machines dominate culture in the industrial age, societies go through 3 parallel cultural ages that mimic the dominant machine of each cycle:
— An age of infantile enthusiasm, when the new machine/energy is discovered.
— A mature age of global power, based on the development and massive reproduction of a peaceful transport machine.
— And a cultural baroque, when lobbyism and political corruption accepts the ‘needed consumption’ of weapons in wars to foster profits, with all kind of ‘cultural excuses’:
It is the British & French, colonial age of steamers that ‘civilized’ Africa & Asia in the I cycle. It is the Nazi age, dominated by tanks that ‘cleansed’ Europe of ‘inferior races’.
And it is the Age of Bush, with his war against Iraq, which substituted the legitimate fight against Al-Qaeda into a war for profits that is used to develop robotic weapons.
Indeed, if we consider America at the head of the electronic cycle, it has passed through an infantile age of enthusiasm for its electronic machines, during the first days of television, into a mature age of world-wide re=production of TVs and portable PCs, which expanded American culture worldwide, to the present age of smart weapons, TV violence, global Big Brother surveillance and lobbyist politicians, indifferent to human lives, who spread global war in search of ever higher corporation profits.
Yet at the same time the electronic cycle ends, we can observe again an infantile, techno-utopia enthusiasm for the Robotic R=evolution that will bring mankind into obsolescence and a messianic zeal among physicists that are building the Final Weapon—a Cosmic Bomb that will bring the frontier of energies to its absolute zenith; that of black holes and ‘strong quarks’, responsible for the explosion of planets and stars all over the Cosmos.
It is the Energetic, Bomb age of the IV Cycle, the first factory of dark matter on planet Earth.
§ Robotists call the first machine with Artificial Intelligence the Singularity. While the Final Weapon is a self sustained ‘mass-bomb’, able to burn the entire mass of this planet, converting the Earth into a pulsar or black hole, also called a Singularity. Thus, the name seems appropriate to define the IV cycle of evolution of machines, as it applies to both limits of human survival: a super-energetic machine able to destroy the Earth and a super-informative machine (an intelligent robot) that will make human workers obsolete. It is the cycle that completes the Industrial Revolution and can extinguish history, unless a radical change in the management of the Economic Ecosystem takes place.
The Kondratieff cycle is therefore the fundamental cycle of economics and the main cause of the peace and war ages that alternate in modern history. And its periodicity coincides with the generational cycle of 72 years of human life and national power, given the fact that those machines are discovered, evolved and used by human beings, organized in nations. Its key dates are:
I STEAM CYCLE: British Age:
1784…..Steam Peace…1857 Crash…Steam Wars…
II CHEMICAL CYCLE: German age:
1860s…..Chemical Peace…..1929 Crash…Oil Wars…
III ELECTRONIC CYCLE: USA Age:
1940s….Electronic Peace…2001 Crash…Robot Wars…
IV SINGULARITY CYCLE: Chinese Age:
2010s: Singularity=Extinction? Vs Human R=evolution?
The key date of each cycle is the moment in which the overproduction of peaceful machines provokes a global economical crisis and a Stock-market crash. Then the same companies that made peaceful machines switch to the production of weapons. Every 72 years that mutation happened after one of the 3 biggest stock market crashes of history, the railroad crash of 1857, the 1929 crash of radios and car industries and the 2001 NASDAQ crash of the computer industry.
After each of those crashes the Industrial World began to re=produce those machines as military weapons that, instead of being consumed by human beings, consumed us in wars. Today the electronic gadget mutates into a smart weapon, as the first Terminator Robots, self mannered tanks and plane drones, are mass produced for the American army. It is the age of Smart Weapons.
Unfortunately in those war ages industrial information, carried by ‘metal-heads’, stresses the human causes of those war cycles, convincing people that wars are not made for industrial profits. So European empires didn’t go to war to get raw materials and sell weapons but made war for altruistic causes—‘to civilize primitive cultures’. Germans didn’t go to war and made weapons to get out of the 29 crisis but to obtain a much needed ‘vital, historic space’, unjustly stolen by surrounding nations.
Today the world is at war in Iraq to ‘bring Democracy’ in what seems a repetition of our colonial profiteering and despise for ‘primitive cultures’.
This hypocritical reasoning is needed, given the fact that we live in Democracies and people are ethic and need good reasons to kill the poor people of the planet, instead of raising them from their misery with money for peaceful education and trade. This solution however cannot be implemented, since stock-markets deviate constantly most investments to the technological companies of each cycle, provoking a chronic scarcity of human goods that prevents the evolution of those cultures, without credit to come out of their cycles of poverty, violence and terrorism. As ‘Business this week’ put it bluntly: ‘who needs Mexican bonds if we have Sun Microsystems’.
The non-future of life in a free economic ecosystem, according to the laws of evolution: the singularity age.
We live an age of accelerated evolution of information. This law which we anticipated in the science of complexity, 2 decades ago, so far has only been recognized in the realm of economics by Kurtzweil, albeit completely misinterepreted in terms of humanism. Since the arrival of the singularity age is NOT a techno-utopian moment, but a moment of extinction of the previous obsolete, less complex human species.
Nor it is unavoidable, since all systems can be controlled by regulating the amount of information and energy they receive.
The biological, human organism does die, in his 3rd informative age because we CANNOT engineer it, after 3 billion years of evolution. But there are animals who do become immortal by merely repressing and erasing the ‘informative warps’ of the organism.
This means that mankind could stop the process of extinction of life and make Gaia immortal, repressing the lethal goods of the tree of science that are extinguishing us. And yet the opposite happens, Company-mothers of machines that produce and evolve, weapons and robots, the lethal goods that will extinguish us, are accelerating the process and repressing humanist information, humanist theories of economics and non-technological, life-enhancing cultures, they are not giving credit to the welfare state, they are not giving credit to companies that produce human goods. So indeed, history as today is becoming extinguished, but because that choice has been taken by our dominant institutions, due to their complete misunderstanding of the meaning of economics, machines, and the laws that regulate life and organic systems.
The censorship of a biological, eusocial science of economics and history by ideologies of power.
It has to be noticed that in each cycle the evolution of machines increases its speed; since in complexity a fundamental law is the differential law of evolution between energetic systems that evolve geometrically (in machines cars) and informative systems that evolve geometrically (in machines today’s computers). Because the information of those system increases in an accelerated pattern, the age which now starts, the age of the singularity will see the arrival of Artificial Intelligence and self-replicant nano-bacteria able to reproduce their information till converting the Earth potentially into a greey-goo. And that is why history is accelerating its rhythm of creation of information and the wave of past history is longer than the wave of present economics, and now in the ‘last decades’ of this process of accelerating information machines evolve faster.
But of course, the capitalist ‘belief’ in the God–like nature of money and ‘progress’ achieved with technology censors any doubts about such scary future.
It is interesting in that sense to notice that Mr. Kurzweil, a ‘religious techno-utopian’ from our dominant animetal culture, who works for the extinction of mankind, is widely popular, but our 20 year old models of biological economics or any humanist analysis of the destruction of gaia and its life-cultures is censored and buried, since the times of the pioneers of humanist schools of economics, Butler, Sombart and Marx til today…
Of course, censorship of humanism and the defense of life by capitalism and the animetal cultures that are extinguishing us will NOT change the facts of history – reason why the model of bio-economics and bio-history is the only one that has predicted this crisis 20 years in advance, as Marx was the only economist that predicted the 1st crisis of 1860, decades in advance and Keynes was the only economist that predicted the II Kondratieff crash decades in advance in his book on consumption. So you have a triad of serious scientific models, closely related; each one censored by capitalism and its infantile myths and cultures that have understood scientifically the future of mankind.
Unfortunately power ignored them till the cycle and the wars they predicted happened. And even after those tragedies have completely misused their work for selfish agendas. Indeed, Russian Stalinism had nothing to do with the work of Marx; the post-war Keynesian politicians, who invited Milton to Breton Woods completely denied Mr. Keynes fundamental advice – the creation of a worldwide currency with deficit rights so sorely needed in this crisis. Now our scholars are proposing all the same brutal, capitalist measures that Coolidge introduced in the 20s and will destroy gaia.
Of course the GNP of companies will grow. But it is increasingly a GNP consumed by machines. Even basic food price is rising as fields are used to cultivate staples that can be converted in fuel for cars. 1 billion humans are now undernourished. 2 billion have now TB. Incresing numbers of Humans are becoming obsolete. We are becoming a surplus not needed by the economic ecosystem. Robots will consume machines, tv-eyes, chip-brains and further extinguish the need for human consumers. But economists will say this is ‘GNP’; will say we are getting richer. So we are living the beginning of a decoupling between mankind, increasingly poor and companies increasingly rich, shown in the difference between the GNP of nations and the capacity of consumption of humans. Thus, if in the I Industrial Revolution, machine-bodies decoupled the human economy from life-beings; in the III industrial R=evolution robots and chips are making humans obsolete. And yet economists will sing the increase of GNP and productivity that reduces human labor as a ‘success’.
Imagine the final result of this way of measuring the economy as the singularity age advances: a world full of ‘economical wealth’, measured by the number of robots, machines and computers and weapons reproduced by the economy; with a massive underclass of human beings, working in mcdonalds, UPS, cleaning homes of the wealthy or living in Ghettos, connected to 3-Dimensional TVs, with free, cheap taxed dope and garbage food. And our economists at Davos greeting each other for the success of coming out of the Singularity crisis. This is the future of the world ruled by our present economical ideology. And we are seeing the beginning of this end, explained 20 years ago in our pioneer books on biological economics.
Son indeed, History is once more rhyming and our ‘experts’ in damned lies and statistics are self-repeating the errors of the 1860s and 1930s.
Plainly speaking the world is in the hands of a group of people, financial economists, who in the XXI century are applying dogmas and ideologies of power, born in the XVIII century, out of the hat of a fellow, Mr. Adam Smith, pious calvinist who thought that money was the ‘hand of God’. How do you expect to survive with that type of science. The degree of complexity of the mathematical and computer models of modern economists dont hide the fact that this fellow and his correligionaries have never properly studied and defined in scientific terms the meaning of machines, money, economic evolution, economic ecoystems, and all the other parameters of macro-economics. So economics is still an ideology whose myths, created to maintain the power of the financial elite that controls the world with the language of money, pass as scientific laws, because now they are written with complex mathematical models that ‘look’ very serious.
In epistemology a science is defined by its predictable power. Thus a model which cannot predict the future is not a science. Astronomy was born when we predicted the sun’s position, after Kepler’s cyclical laws. Before it was called astrology. Macro-Economics is NOT a predictable science. So it must be considered an ideology of power. Micro-economics is a science, because its models of production do work. There are several sub-disciplines of economics which are scientific, but the most important of them all, the one dealt with in this web and attached book, ‘economic history’ or macro-economics, which tries to understand the long term, global scale, consequences of the Industrial R=evolution has never gone beyond the recollection of facts (first stage of evolution of a science) or what is worse, the use of money and machines to impose power.
For all those reasons, when you apply the true cyclical laws of economics the predictability of the future is clear: they will commit the same errors they committed in the 1860s and 1930s.
This explains why 3 years into the crisis, the only model that goes beyond the anecdote of the mortgage meltdown is widely ignored and probably it will be so, as humans keep their deja vu pattern of errors, in the present 2010s=30s decade. The astounding parallelism of those crisis explained in this web and with far more rigor in the book recently published in english is conclusive. And yet to explain mankind that we are in a Great Depression is Taboo, because neither economists making fortunes speculating in the financial market, not politicians that live the day and must sell happiness can explain it.
