INTRODUCTION: THE 3±1 AGES=ARROWS=DIMENSIONS OF TIMESPACE:
In the graph the Universe has 3±1 dimensions of space-time, which are the dimensions we need to build all realities. 3 exist in a single plane of space-time, conforming together the superorganisms of reality as seen in present space.
In the graph 3 Dimensions of space-time which are the canonical dimensions of length, width and height and its perception as motions=function in time; and the two ‘lost’ dimensions of the scalar Universe; the dimension of pure time motions, when ‘wholes desegregate into smaller faster parts’ (4th dimension of entropy) and the inverse 0-1 dimension of pure space-form, which creates from a seminal or linguistic form the whole:
The result of adding both – the life and the death processes – in any system or scale of reality is a ‘zero-sum’ of information+entropy that cyclically returns reality to its initial form, in a dynamic, multiple steady state balance that affects any entity of reality. The study of that process of creation and dissolution of complex structures, however, cannot be made with translational time, (v=S/T), the realm of physics, but it needs to understand biological, morphological time – the life/death cycle and its 3±1 ages. Those ages explain precisely what physicists, stuck in the study of time as movement in space, will never understand: the meaning of the life and death cycle that creates and extinguishes humans, societies (super-organisms of human beings) and all kind of beings that exist in space and time. In biological time all universal species follow the same ‘morphological changes’, described by the wisdom of verbal thought as the 3±1 ages of life, each one ruled by one of the 3±1 change=time:
+1: Conception: ruled by social evolution, as a micro-organism or cell transcends into a macro-organism, organized by social networks.
1st age: Youth or Age of energy.
2nd age: energy and information Reproduce.
3rd age: All energy becomes information.
-1:Death: The inverse of conception when the super-organism dissolves back into cells.
In the graph we describe that law of 3±1 ages, cycles, or horizons of evolutions for the fundamental species of reality. To understand that cycle in depth, we have to recall the Law of Complementarity between energy and information: all systems are made with a body/field of energy and a head/particle of information.
Further on, since form is made with energy, all events must start with an amount of ‘simple’ energy that transforms itself into information, the only other primary direction/arrow of time to go. Then, when all energy is consumed, warped into information, death reverses its cycle. Yet in the middle of that cycle, when information and energy are in balance, to preserve the ‘bio-logic’ form created in that process, the system achieves its reproduction.
And so the ‘offspring’ of the being will carry on its information into the future. Information never disappears as it always recreates itself.
All beings, from fundamental particles, (electrons and quarks) to human beings and life species, reproduce or are reproduced by more complex systems, when they have extra-energy to imprint its in-form-ation. Since forms that do not reproduce, die away and become extinct. So even those deconstructed beings that cannot reproduce alone are reproduced by other species. For example, cells reproduce carbohydrates, galaxies reproduce stars and human reproduce machines in factories. Thus, we talk of 3±1 drives, arrows or ages of existence in all systems: the drive for body energy, the drive for information, the drive for reproduction and the drive of social d=evolution (birth and death of a macro-organism). Whereas the 3±1 ages of Organic Time are merely the order in which those 3±1 drives ‘accumulate’ during the life/death cycle of any species.
In a young first age, energy is more abundant. In the mature age of balance, the species reproduces, combining energy and information. In the third age of the species, energy is scarce but information is abundant, accumulated in the first ages.
Young people are full of energy. They are in the Energy horizon of the species. They are bigger, have little temporal knowledge. They are simple in form. While Old people are full of information. They are in the information horizon of the species. They are smaller, as all information systems are and have a lot of temporal memories. They move little and have a lot of wrinkles.
Mature people balance the two elements of the organic Universe, their content of energy-space and temporal information. So they can reproduce all their components. Hence the 2nd age is the age of reproduction. And the forms of any being in that mature age are a harmonic, an efficient combination of energy lines and informative cycles that we perceive as ‘beautiful’, the objective perception of harmony between energy and information, lines and cycles. So in all organisms the mature, realistic, classic age of balance, or reproductive age, is the most perfect age. Human beings intuitively see that. We like balanced, spiral galaxies, mature people and realist art, which is called classic art and takes place in the mature age of civilizations.
Yet, the dominant arrow of time, information, will finally exhaust energy, warp totally the organism and bring its explosive death. And the cycle will start again.
It follows that a true science of life and time will try to maintain any organism in its age of balance, without excessive information. Exactly the contrary of what our society does. Since humans accumulate scientific and technological information towards a point or ‘singularity’ in which that information, in the form of a robot or artificial intelligence, might extinguish us.
In the graphs, we illustrate those 3±1 ages with a few universal examples, also from social sciences: we see the process in individual human beings, in art, the collective brain of a culture; in matter, where those ages are called the states of matter – energetic gas, reproductive liquid and informative solid.
Finally in the Universe, where stars evolve from an age of energy into an informative age as black holes.
So do galaxies that evolve from energetic nebulae into Black Holes, which explode into quasars. Finally, if the network of galaxies we call the Universe was truly born from a first seed of matter that fed and reproduced its form in the energy of the vacuum; it will go through 3±1 self-similar ages described by the 3 solutions to Einstein’s Space-time equations. Since all in the Universe is a game of ‘3’ dimensions or ages of time: past, the age of energy, present, the reproductive age in which all systems repeat themselves to keep their ‘present form’ beyond death and a 3rd age, when all energy is exhausted, trans-form-ed into form, information.
So we can finally understand together the three arrows of time and the fifth scalar structure of the Universe, as both bring a supœrganic system into being, through the creation of three topological networks, the entropic, energetic, and informative network, across ∆º±1 scales of existence.
THE EQUATION OF DEATH
In the graph we can finally understand together the three arrows of time and the fifth scalar structure of the Universe, as both bring a supœrganic system into being, through the creation of three topological networks, the entropic, energetic, and informative network, across ∆º±1 scales of existence.
Death has a simple equation: the out of balance stage when information and energy break, by overdrive of one of both: Max. I x 0 E (3rd age death) or Max. E x 0 I (accidental young age), which makes the ‘equation of maturity in life’ E=I, break.
So we die by excess of energy and information, at birth often (most cubs and children die) and at 3rd age, warped.
The equation of life and death is the only mathematical equation available to understand those 3 ages of all systems and how to preserve them is
In systems sciences, all what exists is defined as a balanced system of energy and information. So physical entities are ‘informative particles’, moved by an energetic field; humans are informative heads, moved by energetic bodies and robots energetic iron machines ran by informative chips.
So any of such systems is broken and dies, when the balances and inner flows of energy and information between its 2 systemic poles are broken. If we define a system that maximizes its stability as ExI=K (e=i), or in classic terms ‘mens sana in corpore sanum), the death equations are:
– Max. E x Min. I (overdrive of energy), and Max. I x Min. E (overdrive of information). Both break the natural balance, as death is an imbalance between the energy and information of a system, by excess of energy (accidents common in youth, the age of energy) or excess of information (warping of form into wrinkles and redundancies, proper of the 3rd age).
And as we are IN THE AGE OF robotic and digital nuclear weapons and AI which far exceed human and GAIA capacity to survive, we suffer an overdrive of energy and information, which plugs mankind fully into the equation of death. So this is the age you live and it shows in the constant…
degradation of the Human Mind by audiovisual memes of hate, fiction thought and greed.
The multiplication of worthless electronic information is the 4th crisis of super-production of electronic machines.
Contrary to belief, human minds are devolving, not evolving, as they become substituted by digital machines, which think for us. In that regard, we have to compare the evolution of our biological language, the word, and the biological language of machines, mathematics, which humans do not use to communicate and express their biological wills—their wantings for energy, information, reproduction, and social evolution. The natural goals of any biological being are thus no longer the engine of mankind because verbal thought, who expressed them in the past, is now considered an obsolete language. Instead, society is ruled by machines and mathematical laws, which define a world guided by the will of machines, by the ethics of a technological civilization” dedicated to evolve mechanisms. So instead of verbal ethic and legal codes, humans are now directed by digital money, which has changed human values for the values of the economic ecosystem and its “company mothers”: we exist to reproduce=work and consume=evolve machines to make money and increase the profits of companies. Those companies evolvemachines with scientific laws, buy human time with salaries, laws with lobbies, and increasingly substitute humans for machines under the law ofProductivity. Yet at the same time, our language and species become obsolete to the machine and its scientific and financial numbers, our language, devolves from
– an ethic, social summit when it was the language of a single species, which tried to evolve mankind into a global superorganism (religions of love, social democracies, UNO, and Human Rights), into
– An individual selfish use (logic, simple thought) and even further into:
– Primitive myths, fiction thought, and bestialism (as people search for their primary wantings).
Thus the evolution of verbal thought that had raised the human mind from the myths of the Paleolithic into the heights of social love is now reversed. While digital thought evolves from its simplest first geometrical forms into a vital biological and social language that makes machines interact in global networks and increasingly “think” with digital images. A new type of mind appears on planet Earth. Our demise as a species thus coincides with the raise of the Paleolithic age of mental, violent machines. Since the first robots have a digital, visual mind evolved in video games and military programs of survival, similar to the mind of top predator animals. It is the neo-paleolithic age of a jungle of metal in which man will be the victim, not the predator, of a new race of intelligent machines.
The price we pay for our addiction to machines: Atrophy and obsolescence.
Every new species of metal atrophies an organ of mankind, as company-mothers manufacture millions of ‘metallic organs’ that we will consume instead of our own organs. This process of atrophy of human organs has followed the same phases than the evolution of metal:
– The XIX century was the age of ‘machine-bodies’. So the elites of our civilizations atrophied their bodies and overdeveloped their brains. They used their brains to invent bodies of machines and those bodies of machines performed all their energy tasks. The result was that Europe, the cradle of machines and specially England, became a mental society, where everything that had to do with the body was repressed (Victorian society). The aim of such culture was to enhance the intelligence of the elite that had to invent machines. Society became split. There were the ‘brainy’ classes that made the machines and abhorred their bodies. Then there were the ‘slaves of machines’, those humans who had to serve the bodies of machines, extracting food for them, constructing them and making those metal-bodies work (miners, railroad workers). They became strong and mindless, as those machine bodies were. It was evident already the enormous influence machines had on our life and personality. Yet few, if any writer of this age, recognized it. Human arrogance seems oblivious to any truth that doesn’t make us the center of the Universe.
– XX Century: The mental atrophy of mankind. When II World War ended, ‘top predator weapons’ – machines’ bodies: tanks, planes and ships – consumed 50 million human beings. Then, the end of World war opened a new age: the age of metal-minds, in which men developed the minds of machines. Today those minds have reproduced in huge numbers, substituting many of the mental functions that men performed in the past (calculus, spelling, accountancy, science, design, etc.) The result is a general atrophy and diminution of the intelligence of human beings. Since now intelligent machines perform those jobs for us. It is a similar process to that of the taming of an animal, which atrophies his will and his brain. So humans have become tamed animals of the ‘Animetal farm’ so well described by Orwell in the parable, ‘Animal farm’. They have become ever more stupid, as machines become cleverer; and their will as humans has disappeared, as they become slaves of the drives of existence of machines. Yet a tamed animal has 30% less brain than his wild cousin. And further on, he suffers ‘neoteny’ – he never develops beyond his infantile level of reasoning, as it happens to modern humans, whose TVs and pre-programmed information make them ever more stupid.
Those facts explain a paradox that has puzzled social scientists in the XX century: why as we accumulate more information, people are loosing educational skills? Why there has been a global decline on educational standards, intelligence and quality of human thought? Some deny it. Yet tests results and daily evidence are overwhelming. The average human student of the XXI century tests 25% less than his parents did. Entrance tests for universities are revised constantly to adjust them to that diminishing pattern. The creativity of our thinkers is minimal. The interest of the common people for ideas is null. Most humans have lost their capacity for abstract thinking. Even basic skills of human behavior, such as social dialog and social interaction, are in jeopardy; as we communicate more and more through machines and their digital languages, (TVs, Internet, weapons, financial statements) than with human beings.
There is only a biological explanation: the brains of our children have been partially atrophied. Now they do not speak but TVs speak for them, they do not calculate, but computers think for them. As a result of this, we have changed culture again. We are no longer repressing our bodies, as we did in the XIX century; but our minds, our capacity to think and care for reality with our verbal, legal, ethic systems of social communication. We live a world of fiction and Homo Bacteria, individual egos with childish attitudes, all of them sure to be masters of their crafts by virtue of the machines they use. Mr. Hawking, the man which probably will cause our demise as a species, a childish scientist who thinks travel in time is possible and he is the new Einstein, is the paradigm of this new race of childish idiots, who think to be geniuses, just because they consume computers and other metal-minds.
The mental atrophy, the substitution of ‘truth by fiction’ and the creation of a happy, parallel world of virtual reality, which has nothing to do with the Darwinian Universe, is the most relevant fact of modern history, completely ignored by mankind, yet defining our civilization, our incapacity to react and solve problems and our demise as a species, which has become obsolete to bodies and minds of machines. This virtual world that has converted mankind in a race of happy idiots, similar to the parables of Huxley and H.G. Wells about the future, is in part created by the upper castes of our societies to control people’s opinion, but it has also its own ‘agenda’; as there are studies, which clearly show that regardless who programs those televisions, people become addicted to movement, hence to violence in their TVs and people diminish their mental activity in a process similar to drug-addiction. In the same manner, there are serious studies that prove ‘metal-ears’, mobile phones, provoke leukemia in children, due to the higher frequency of their radio-waves.
Thus, human brains are becoming ‘preys’ of the audiovisual machines of the XX centuries that kill our minds by an overdrive of information, in the same manner weapons kill us by an overdrive of energy – the two possible forms of death, which happens when we break the balances of those vital parameters. Indeed, the mental addiction to TVs is achieved by an overdrive of ‘information’, due to the fact that metal-minds process faster information per unit of time and so we first became addicted to the ‘virtual realities’ of mental machines and then we became mentally colonized by their ideas. It is difficult to stress the importance of this fact, which can only be fully understood by the very few humans that have survived this mental indoctrination and have tried to explain a ‘neo-Paleolithic man’, the real meaning of the Universe. It is plainly impossible to cure mankind from the Opium of the People, television…
Thus in 2 phases human consumers have become a sub-race, which bears little resemblance to the enlightened minds of the pre-war age, especially in all forms of verbal, ethic thought.
The Animetal culture of eviL children that despises the Tree of Life.
Thus a second consequence of that addiction to machines we tend to overlook, pumped as we are, by the power of metal -specially that 1% that invents and monopolizes the use of those ‘memes of metal’ – is the constant atrophy and substitution of our organs by the organic machines that imitate them. So we no longer ‘see’ the real world but prefer to see it through the eyes of television and lately in its virtual computer designed form – hence kids prefer to see ‘the lion king’ than going to a zoo. The dual action of a pumped, increasingly arrogant human ego and a decreasing mental capacity, diminished by the substitution of our heads by those of machines is the ultimate cause why we live increasingly in a neo-paleolithic age of visual, violent, childish, emotional, regressing, mythic people and the explanation why the entire mankind is devolving their collective mind to the pre-rational age of myths and emotions, under the hypnosis of those ‘dramatic tvs.’
And yet, while children just want to be happy as our childish civilization wants, and become entertained, fact is that in the Universe children are ‘the staple food’ of top predators. And indeed, we are increasingly children, at the end of History, like in that masterpiece of H.G. Wells – time machine – where humans are childish, happy ignorant kids whose only function is to feed ‘another reality’ living in the underworld. That is our function today in the Orwellian ‘animetal farm’, ran by corporations, for whom we are nothing but ‘workers=reproducers of machines’ and consumers=animetals, who test them and evolve them. And so it is quite impossible to consider a resurrection of the ‘mass of mankind’ submitted by TVs and Internets, propaganda, fictions and myths to a lethargic state of indefension as all children are.
As an expert in complex systems, I can observe that process from a certain distance, and I have been doing so for decades – but I have found always that, as it happen with any child, you cannot take away from him, his favorite toys even if they are dangerous guns. For two decades I have tried to warn mankind of all those complex processes and suffered a deep angst for the now, all too evident ‘no-future’ of the species, to not avail. I think now that this process is becoming irreversible and that perhaps is better than our ‘children of thought’ who think of themselves by the power of their computers and cameras to be Einsteins and Picassos, die in happiness, given the fact that they simply cannot react, cannot master enough energy and information to change the system. And yet even if I have sacrificed my life for a lost cause, in the choice between happiness and truth, I have walked ‘the road less travelled’ because ‘a life not examined is not worth living’. These webs that have for decades explained those facts to the indifference of our suicidal, ego-tripping children have therefore not produced any reaction, since men cannot walk any longer naked the road of life.
In fact there were 4 ages of evolution of the human mind as a global organic system, the individual, selfish, violent paleolithic child’; the religious, neolithic, mythic tribal age; the rational, European, scientific age; and the complex, organic age, which these texts represent. And today, as machines are crossing fast towards the point of artificial intelligence, we – most men – are devolving backwards into the speechless, selfish, individual neo-Paleolithic. And so it is very unlikely that the billions of humans living now back again in those pre-rational ages, change their way of living and thinking and acting – since paradoxically that regression has been produced by the ‘selfish memes’ of metal, which give them enough power and arrogance to believe they are the ‘chosen of Go(l)d’, the ‘Masters of the Universe’. Of course, they are not – the invisible silk thread is playing a cruel game with them and soon the thread will be cut.
But there is nothing an old sage can do against the trolls and the morlocks – to use parables that our visual children can understand. My experience is that they turn violent and censor you – since those are not children of Live but eviL Children – their inverse wor(l)d. And they cannot see as I show in these and other webs the beauty and complexity of the Universe, because it does not pump their egos, and shows them at true face value, reason why they have always hated the best minds of mankind – their artists that see with the human eye space and their writers that perceive time with the human verb, not with telescopes and clocks; and have lived as I have lived outside the system. The choice in history has always been for Aaron not Moses, exiled in the Mountain, for the golden calf, not the wor(l)ds of love.
Death of the Human Wor(l)d and the Ethics of the Mind
In the past, when human verbal values, expressed in legal codes, dominated the economic system, our informative, social castes—our politicians and the press—acted as a counterbalance to engineers and economists, ruled by the digital values of money and machines, and human ethics could be heard and contained the spread of death. So we could prune legally the bad fruits of the tree of technology and foster the production of those goods, which under verbal ethics were needed by man.
This fight between the bad and good fruits of the tree of science ended with the arrival of the Internet and television, whose audiovisual languages hypnotized mankind and made us a violent race of retarded children. Today money and digital languages dominate completely our society, so human verbal ethics are substituted by the violent technological ethics of the visual media.
The result is the dual tragedy of our civilization: information machines are substituting and atrophying the human mind that no longer distinguishes truth from fiction as it loses its mastery of the verbal language of our species, with its bioethical human point of view that favors our well-being and survival. Instead, we become dependent on audiovisual and digital languages better mastered by machines. This means also that scientists no longer calculate by themselves, understand, and evolve the logic laws of nature, but rather feed data collected with machines to computers, who churn out results. And so few scientists today can make as Einstein did thought experiments, evolving our comprehension of the Universe with sweeping theories of reality, but merely feed computers with details and secondary data of little importance.
Meanwhile, our politicians and the military no longer protect our citizens, their lives and human values, but work for industrial lobbies and make money promoting new technologies, as the solution to all our problems. So under the ethics of a technological civilization, we walk steady toward our obsolescence and probable death by overdrive of energy and information while the “wishful thinking” of our leaders let it all happen, dismissing those who warn mankind and still fight for life and ethic human values as alarmists, radicals, or activists that must be kept at bay, before they spoil the big party.
The neo-paleolithic and the LOL Method
From 'The Extinction of Man' c.94 Bookmasters, Ohio
Finally, visual mass media acts as the system that provides the “infotainment” and visual violence required to maintain the sheeple in a hypnotic state of pleasure, perceiving its own death. The consumer today consumes anything, including wars and the end of the world as part of that infotainment. And so the extinction of life is not taken seriously. It is just another horror movie. It is the LOL method…
The corruption of the Wor(l)d and its ethics by digital numbers and its values, the degradation of the human mind, once the subconscious collective of history, is today absolute. The Wor(l)d has died before the world will die. So now we live under the values of technology, nationalism, and individualism, which create a society of “monstrous children” that can do evil at distance, having fun, without any sense of responsibility.
Because all organisms are made of an energetic and informative system that evolve together, the death of history, the collective mind of human information that rules Gaia, the reproductive body of the Earth, is also dual. As both, the mind of mankind is being “erased” by the evolution of informative machines and our body, Gaia, is about to become extinct by the evolution of weapons.
This duality of any process of death is due to the systemic, parallel nature of organic networks. In any superorganism, as it dies, two processes are parallel, the destruction of the body of the superorganism, in this case Gaia, the Mother Earth, and the degeneration of the informative brain of the superorganism that gets old and loses its grasp on reality, in this case the human collective brain of Gaia, which is also suffering an overdrive of fiction, provided by audiovisual machines that hypnotize us with its overdrive of informative “noise,” a military term used to describe false decoys that distract the enemy, preventing him from focusing on the real weapon that will kill him.
Any superorganism, including human societies, has a neuronal, upper, informative class of cells/citizens that manages an energetic, lower caste of working cells. This might sound antidemocratic, but it is how societies are efficiently structured. Even those revolutionary societies that tried to establish equality ended up having an informative, legal caste on top, either priesthood (theocracies) or a party (socialisms). And that is okay as long as the upper castes, in our society, the people who create the languages of information and power—bankers who invent money, audiovisual artists, scientists that create technology with digital languages, and politicians that create laws with words—are efficient, intelligent, just, and give back to the social organism most of what they take. And if not, as it happens in organisms, they receive “pain messages” from citizens, the energetic cells of societies. On the other hand, when a social organism becomes corrupted, those upper castes selfishly abuse their position of power since they cannot be judged and become painfully aware of the harm they cause.
Further on, when an organism gets old by an overdrive of information and is diminished in its capacity to cope with that excess of informative noise, a much more dangerous situation arises: the brain of the old man or the informative caste of the corrupted civilization becomes crazy, enters into a stage of permanent fiction, produces absurd, irregular forms, myths, and false ideologies that make him happy but accelerate his death. The old man thinks he is young again and doesn’t take precautions. The upper caste of the society becomes unconnected to the lower caste, enjoying life in an irresponsible manner, as societies go under. When any superorganism gets old and dies, both its reproductive body and informative mind become corruptedat the same time. When we are old, our body is weak, our mind becomes childish, forgets and takes absurd risks. So happens today to history, the sum of all human civilizations. humans are becoming emotional children, programmed by audiovisual machines, which are making mankind an aged child, at the same time that a new generation of nuclear devices and robotic weapons will soon overpower the capacity of human beings to survive them.
Yet in the face of those incoming dangers, a diminished, informative caste of lesser scientists and mass media politicians brings as the preferred solution what a child would do in front of an insurmountable danger: to laugh at the problem as if it didn’t exist; to ridicule those who denounce our collective extinction; to believe, as a spoiled child would do, that our species is immortal and will survive those dangers by the grace of God; to treat this crossroads of existence versus extinction as if it were not an objective situation but a fiction, a movielike story; or to hide like an ostrich, as if this were not happening—sure receipts to lose it all in a Darwinian Universe with no pity for those species who renounce to defend themselves from the dangers of death.
We conclude that history is suffering both, an age of informative corruption,due to the excessive noise of audiovisual fiction information that blurs our understanding of scientific truths, and an excess of technological energy, due to the evolution of weapons that is causing our physical and spiritual, mental death. We have created machines that vastly overpower our informative capacity (global computer and audiovisual systems) or produce so much energy they can be used as weapons of planetary destruction (nuclear weapons and black hole factories).
Because systems of energy and information are “complementary” and they coexist and evolve together—a principle that applies both to physical systems, where particles of information are accompanied by fields of energy and to biological systems, where all bodies have heads that guide them, our brain and body death as a species is happening in parallel, caused by the evolution of machines, which substitute our informative minds and our energetic limbs, atrophying us. This, of course, is not recognized by mankind because in the process, our humanist and life values are substituted by the information and religion of the machine. So we switch from the ethics of humanism in which man was the measure of all things, to the ethics of mechanism in which the machine is the new God. This process is a long process that has lasted hundreds of years, so now the religion of the machine is a dogma. Yet “facts” overrule dogmas, and it is a fact that we are destroying and substituting, both the collective mind of Gaia, the mind of humanity, and its body, the superorganisms of nature:
Our “subconscious collective mind” of information and our ethical and family values that ensure our survival, are dying, as humans become violent, killing each other, broken into tribes, under the influence of audiovisual information, which hypnotizes us with its “cinematic values.” The process is purely biological as Mr. Tarantino explained recently: movement, an excess of visual energy is “cinematic” and so it obliges filmmakers to show violence to attract the eyes of their audience. Since the eye biologically wishes the consumption of energy and it is attracted to red, the color of blood, the eye, which is a “natural born killer,” likes audiovisual violence when it would feel repelled by “gore books” expressing death with the same brutality. So in the twentieth century, mankind evolved visual machines, which destroyed our bioethical survival instincts. Further on, visual thought and digital images that seem more real than the world we live in created a virtual world populated by fictions and supermen with overgrown egos that think mankind will always win in the struggle for existence. Yet because images only show the surface of reality in a Universe which is extremely complex with multiple “invisible layers” that interact together, our audiovisual culture has diminished the intelligence of mankind, returning our species to a neo-paleolithic of visual, clueless animal, violent thought. Humans differentiated from animals when they learned to speak and used logic thought to understand those different layers of reality, from the atomic and biological world to the upper planes of social existence. Yet that rational function is now disappearing. Mankind evolved mentally when we abandoned the age of myths and, after Aristotle, used reason and logic to understand the Universe beyond the individual, entering into the realm of universal complex laws that were extracted from groups, described with numbers and logic laws. Function is also disappearing, as hypnotic films based on fictions, designed by computers, substitute our rational mind and people, who only “see” cannot understand the complex systems that control reality beyond the individual. Yet the cult to machines prevents mankind from even realizing of those destructive processes caused by technology.
These cults to the memes of metal, which create the ideologies of capitalism, mechanism and nationalism that make us ‘live’ to reproduce those memes and extinguish life are now reinforced not only by the censorship of economical alternative schools but by the symbiosis between the education of the system and the education of the visual world.
Classic, Creationist economics and audiovisual fiction suffocates all rational debate about the future of history.
Unfortunately today, the Matrix of fictions that imprints the human mind has reached the scholar world. The conjunction of the overwhelming audiovisual media with its infantile messages of selfishness that devolves mankind into a visual neo-paleolithic and the regression in objectivity in social sciences acts on the collective subconscious of the new generations, who care nothing for the ethical parameters that allow the species to survive.
Economists today are only motivated by personal profit or the profit of the corporations they work in. Universities have been cleansed and so have been economical magazines. And the regression in verbal, logical skills of the visual X-Y-Z generations prevents them from rationalize the ‘damned lies and statistics, dogmas, myths and beliefs’ of creationist, classic economics. In the same manner billions are regressing back into the infantile thesis of Biblical religions, scientists are loosing mental skills, as nobody reads anymore and so only images and computer models of reality seem truth.
The gravity of the mental crisis of mankind caused by the Matrix of Fictions that ‘educates them’ – totally ignored by mainstream sociologists, cannot be stressed in darwinian terms. It is equivalent to a neoteny farm in which humans are kept in a state of virtual happiness and fiction madness, thinking they are entitled to all. The animals in a farm though are food for their masters. And today the ‘human animal’ raised in the Globalized world of corporations is manufactured in his consent by a fictional, pseudo-religious series of myths that oblige him to be happy and optimist and accept the system and its nationalist=military and capitalist=mechanist goals of evolution and reproduction of weapons and machines as its own goals (instead of the natural goal of human eusocial evolution and creation of the goods of the welfare state that make us ‘really’ happy).
Further on, those ‘sacred’ memes become in fiction thought the solution to all problems – you kill and you accumulate money as the goals of all films. And focus on humans as selfish, isolated individuals, destroying the eusocial arrow of evolution and love that creates complex systems and evolves the ‘scales’ of superorganisms in the Universe. Humans thus have devolved from the Homo Organicus into the inferior, primitive Homo Bacteria, fighting each other with those memes of metal to survive in the ‘Metal-Jungle’; and are now entering into a neo-paleolithic 3rd age of negative, infantile behavior. This is a superorganism is a clear sign of a 3rd, extinctive age, as old men close to death look back to the past, fearing the no-future. So humans have regressed from the objective, eusocial age of history (social-democratic, welfare states) back into previous, primitive forms of eusocial evolution (religions, inquisitions of thought) and further on into individual, violent behavior.
It is the 3rd age of mankind, the human baroque, the last X-Y-Z generations, which once the collective subconscious is dead and the memes of capitalism imprinted since earlier age by Tv-screens on the new race of children of thought, become harmless ‘neoteny’ animals of the metal-farm that will walk like Boxer, the horse of the Orwellian parable towards its extinction like tortoise children, the staple food of the darwinian universe, enter the mouth of the lizard. We are not living a bubble of happiness because God, Yvwh, the G.Bush that burned in the bronze age is real and will save us and gave us the Universe for us to enjoy, but because the evolution of the complex memetic financial-military-industrial system prefers to keep us in a lethargic state to dispose of our lives and wealth, whenever it wants.
In that sense censorship is now auto-censorship as the visual, superficial, shallow reader will expect a positive, subjective, anthropomorphic, ‘false’ description of reality that makes him happy. He is now full of taboos that cannot be broken without an emotional anger on his side. If you talk of the real history of capitalism and his founders you are, you know that horrible word, anti$e… If you doubt of the goodness of the memes of metal, you are, you know that regressive, primitive type of people, we love to hate. If you have eusocial, loving behavior you are ‘weak’.
If you suffer for mankind you are a ‘looser’ and ‘boring’. Whenever you preach the natural ideologies of the human being, humanism (all humans the same species), socialism (the language of social power, money, controlled by the democratically elected governments, not by company-mothers of machines whose agenda is NOT human), and organicism (man and life as the measure-goal of all things, not things and money as the measure of all humans), the system will have a laugh at you; and the millenarian cultural cells that invented the ideologies of the memes of metal, nationalistic, capitalist and mechanist warriors, bankers and scientists will step forward to sell us their wishful thinking, religions of the future and impose by sheer power and rhetoric repetition the ‘politically correct and economically correct view’ that go(l)d will provide in the future…
And so we must sacrifice WHealth and human happiness in the present, because the atoms of gold and iron are, as our ancestors in the German jungles and Semite deserts believed the grace of god, the sweat of god, the invisible hand of god, etc. Of course, all this is repeated with the methods of Goebbels – if you repeat a lie many times people will believe it. And indeed, the people who invented those myths believe them – they do their repetitions with automaton zeal. You can listen Miss Merkel, who knows nothing of economics, imposing their dictatorship of capital to all the Europeans as if she was ointed by go(l)d, the sweat of god. You can listen the honchos of hedge funds talking on how the poor, unemployed and 3rd world must be sacrificed to their parasitic profits because that is how ‘in the future’ they will be better off. It is indeed the same promises of high priests that promise you salvation in the future after death, as long as you give them ex-votes of go(l)d to their Baal temple. Yes, indeed, as Keynes put it, in the ‘future we will be all dead’… but robots will not resurrect and rapture us into the capitalist paradise. On the contrary the Marx-Smith paradox, the fundamental law of both classic and socialist utopian economics have a Darwinian solution.
LOL, plainly speaking the deformation of the collective subconscious by the Ideologies of the memes of metal is such that if it were not so tragic, if I were not a member of the human species, I would be laughing out long and hard the rest of my days.
I cannot though avoid a deep frustration with the obvious shortcomings of the human mind and its blindness to the laws of the Universe, the laws of evolution which creationist economics absurdly denies to keep the sheeple happy and ignorant of his tragic destiny. Capitalism indeed is ‘the belief that the ‘wickedest of all people, will do the wickedest of all things for the common good’ (Keynes). And what can you do with a spoiled mass of eviL=antilife children of thought, which censor you and become increasingly aggressive when you deny their selfish dreams? Today the 1% lives an orgy of power, which history shows will come to hunt them back. But memetics seems to prove their brains cannot be changed with reason. That ideas are like hardware networks that cannot be broken and re-formed, after their emotional, young imprinting in the temples of creationist economics – the MBA masters, in which this new generation of data-based believers on the future fantasies drink their minds.
If Economics had a wider, more objective, scientific view, based in the biological laws of evolutionary economics, not only they could forecast the evolution of technology and the financial crisis but also change their policies, taking into account the lethal effects of an excessive reproduction of mechanical goods and promote as China does today, with a political control of credit, a sustainable economy based in WHealth (the health of societies maximized by the production of ‘human goods’ of the welfare state that improve our lives and make us happy, measured by the IHD, index of human development). As Theory is later imposed in praxis, we conclude we are leading the world in the wrong direction because we are teaching the wrong discipline of macro-economics…
The solution is obvious but probably the most difficult to implement:
DIGITAL DELENDA EST. To protect the ‘freedom of speech’ not of images that the overdrive of visual information with minimal verbal one is causing. So to protect our rights to right information we must destroy mass-media systems.
