DUAL PATTERNS OF HUMAN EVOLUTION: FROM ENERGETIC APE TO INFORMATIVE HUMAN
In the graph, the Universe is made of complementary systems of 2 lineal, moving, energy and cyclical, dimensional in/form/ation, from the duality of energetic forces and informative particles, to the biological duality of informative heads. Once the properties of those 2 forms are understood we can apply them to resolve the conundrum of evolution and species differentiation, since the existence of only 2 elements in the Universe, reduces enormously the number of possible new forms and puts limits to the game of evolution.
In the human species those dualities are obvious in the duality male/female, in which men have energetic bodies and females have informative, reproductive ones. Since information is ‘fractal’, formal and inflationary (it constantly reproduces as fractal forms do, self-generating replicant forms in lesser size). So female reproduce the information of our species, and male bodies are energetic, fast-moving, stronger ones. Yet it seems that such duality is reversed in the brain, to maintain a balance between both species. Women have been proved to have 10 times more white matter, the lineal, network patterns fixed at earlier age in the brain, whose intelligence is ‘stronger’, more difficult to change, less creative and hence the equivalent to an energetic brain, based in ‘beliefs’ and wired deeply with the emotional hyppothalamus, limbic brain. Men on the other hand have 6 times more grey matter, which is creative/destructive, whose patterns are more variable and connected to the external sensorial images. So we could consider an essential ‘duality’ of complex, fractal systems taken place in the definition of humans: women have energetic, stronger brains and reproductive, informative, weaker bodies. And men have informative, weaker, reproductive brains and energetic, stronger bodies. And both are complementary.
Further on, other patterns of informative evolution took place, as we humans increased the ‘informative dimension of height’ respect to other animals, finally completing the main arrow of complex evolution from energetic shapes (planarian worm) in the dimension of length (energetic dimension) to informative humans (with maximal height dimension).
When we consider the duality of energy and information in races and evolution, the same process determines a clear pattern: species differenciate in one energetic and one informative, and then combine giving birth to mixed species, again differenciated in higher energy/spatial/visual brains and more informative/verbal/temporal ones.
The pattern starts with the differentiation of apes and the first homos, followed in the graph, but truly matters to the creation of the ‘human being’ as it is known today with the apparition of the first verbal/technological species, which seems to be the Homo Floresiensis (technological remains of about 700.000 years found on the same sites, brain morphology similar to that of the homo sapiens, development of the 10th brodman region, etc.
This again follows the patterns we have found in ‘dual evolution’: during the evolutionary phase of a species, the species develops further information, whose properties are inverse to those of energy, so the species becomes smaller, quiet, isolated in a region of lesser survival struggles, evolving its forms as an insect would do in its chrysallid phase, or men did in the isolated region of Flores islands. There he learned to speak, which again is proved by the fact that almost 1/2 of the languages of the Earth are spoken in those islands (maximal differentiation, memetic or genetic, happens in the original regions in which a universal form appears). Thus the Homo Antecessor should be the Floresiensis, whose discovery validated our 94 Thesis of dual evolution. Then once he came out of Flores advanced north and south, mixing heavily with the Homo Erectus in the Northern region, growing in body mass and giving birth to the speaking Homo Heidelbergensis, antecessor of the visual Neanderthal brain
While in the southern run towards Africa he further evolved informatively, with minimal mixing with the Erectus, giving birth to the capoid verbal men.
Then those 2 sub-species, the informative, verbal capoid and the visual-energetic neanderthal interbreed again around 80.000 years ago in Palestine, giving birth to the Homo Sapiens, whose different races show different quantity of ‘neanderthal vs. capoid mixing’.
Evolutionary patterns in complexity sciences. The game of Duality and Creation: energy x information species.
One the main discoveries I did in the field of complexity applied to anthropology, dating back from my first books on the subject (Bio-history, Bio-economics, a theory of Unification, Bookmasters, Ohio, c.94), was the application of the Duality of Energy/information and its self-generative process of creation of new species that combine both essential elements of the Universe, to the evolution of the Human Kind. The plan of evolution of the fractal, organic, Complex Universe is in that sense simple. All species become differentiated in an energetic, ‘lineal’, spatial species and an informative, ‘cyclical’, temporal one. Then both mix to create a more complex, reproductive species.
And so 3 is the number of Horizons and subspecies we find in all evolutionary systems. This plan of evolution which has enormous repercussions in the understanding on how species evolve and complements Darwin and Mendel, however is disputed outside the science of complexity and the congresses in which I have developed my work. And so it is not widely known. And yet it recently achieved new proofs in anthropology with the discovery that the Neanderthal, white, visual, spatial, energetic brain species mixed with the Homo Sapiens, the Capoid, verbal, temporal one.
So we can explain both genre (being women the informative species that reproduces the fractal information of the human being and man the lineal energetic species), and racial differentiation and establish 3 types of mind: the white, visual, dolicocephalic brain, more developed in the visual axis from the forehead to the occipucius, which should be found to have a higher mix of Neanderthal. He is divided in two types, which again experimental proofs have validated: the Semite, in which Neanderthal males mixed with verbal women, as the dominant, stronger species, in the first crossing of the Homo Sapiens, in 80.000 BC. This advanced theory of 94 has now proofs that came in Nature: only homo sapiens women mixed with Neanderthal males in Palestine. The result is the semite with a clear dominant male, bigger than the female, talking species. The reason is that at such time the Homo Sapiens had not developed the arch and so it was dominated by the Neanderthal, stronger warrior. Then in Altai mountains, homo sapiens evolved into the mongoloid cro-magnon which had arcs and hence could kill at distance the neanderthal. This man went down to Europe and the mixing reversed. Now the Homo Sapiens Paletiniensis mixed with the Neaderthal stronger women (the Nordic Women and red hair, dolicocephalic scots). The result was the Aryan in which women are far stronger. This is the last detail of our Complex theory of human evolution to be proved in the next years…
In the text, we have a further explanation of the other races, which are clearly 3: the mongoloid, verbal race with a higher distance in the verbal axis (brachicephalic) and the black, reproductive, emotional brain, which is self-similar to that of women, with a high brain more evolved in the top axis.
complexity defines a simple game of evolution by combining informative and energetic species in balanced, new organisms: e xi=st.
We say that the Universe has 3 arrows of creation, energy, information and its balanced combinations. This is also a sexual principle: Women are information-dominant; male are energy dominant.
In human evolution the same pattern emerges: each successful, dominant Homo differentiates into an energetic and informative species, which recombine, creating more complex= informative and stronger=energetic homos that displace their parental forms, thanks to their higher Energy x Information. Yet the dominant, overall arrow favors informative species. Since when Homos were born, the energy top predators were felines, far stronger than the strongest possible homo mutation. So the evolutionary direction in which the big apes could find an ecological niche within the mammal kingdom was the informative arrow. They were already fit to that purpose, since they spent long times living in stillness in the summit of trees, where they had to learn to control complex movement in the informative dimension of height, adding a 3rd dimension to their brain. So they became informative masters among mammal species . . .
Thus, the duality between energy and information is also responsible for the creation of humanity. In the graph we study that process: life first diversified into complementary genders: energetic, lineal, spatial men and cyclical, reproductive women, which hold more biological information. While a 3rd, gay sex mixes both. Further on, as humans evolved, they followed the same pattern of 3 ages proper of all species. Thus, Homos diversified into energetic, informative and reproductive forms that show a higher balance between energy and information. Yet only the informative species, the dominant ‘arrow’ of future survives in each of the 3±1 horizons of increasing informative evolution, from Australopithecus with 500 c.c., into Homo Erectus with 1000 c.c. into Homo Sapiens with 1500 c.c.
And in all those phases, humans split into an energetic species and an informative one that recombined to create a 3rd species. Those species will further evolve technology also in 3 horizons called the upper, middle and lower Paleolithic. Finally, humans diversified in 3 races, specialized in Energy (white race) and information (Mongoloid) with a reproductive, black race, the last to be born, which mixes the pre-mongoloid (bushman) and white races. The constrain established by the fact there are only two elements, energy and information, to create reality, whose lineal and cyclical forms are invariant at scale, in all systems of the cosmos means the Universe imposes the same program of creation to all its species.From an initial ape species we find a ternary differentiation ±5 million years ago, into 3 sub-species of great apes that live in Africa:
— Max. E: Gorilla, a big, energetic species that reaches 200 kilos, with a square, huge jaw.
— E=i: The chimpanzee, with a smaller body and a bigger brain. According to the Black Hole law, the smallest organism evolves informatively. Thus, the ‘dwarf chimpanzee’, the PanPaniscus, which today shows the highest learning skills among apes, was the species that seems to have evolved into a 3rd informative horizon of big apes. It is:
— Max. i: Australopithecus, which splits in 3 evolutionary ages of growing brain volume:
I Horizon: 500 cc.: From Australopithecus to Homo Erectus.
We have dated the oldest mandibles of Australopithecus Anamensis, the top predator of the 3 big ape species, in 4 million years. The Australopithecus, after reproducing massively in the savannah ecosystem that favours his bipedalism, suffers a new ternary mutation. The 3 descendants of that Australopithecus Afarensis that inhabited the Ethiopian plains around 3 million years ago, are:
— Max. E: The Paranthropus, an energetic species with huge mandibles and a lineal, planar brain. He looks like a heavy-set, humanoid gorilla. He was probably vegetarian. The first subspecies found is the Paranthropus Aethiopicus, which will further evolve into the stronger Paranthropus Robustus.
— E=i. The Australopithecus Africanus, which maintains the form of the original Australopithecus Afarensis, perhaps with inner improvements in his soft tissue. He lives in South Africa and is contemporary of the Paranthropus. And the . . .
— Max. i: Australopithecus Garthi. He is the informative species, with a bigger brain, which starts to acquire the shape of all informative species: a rounded forehead, as the sphere is the formwhich holds more information in lesser space.
Those 3 species live very close. Around the Turkana Lake we have found remains of the 3 Homos. Yet the arrow of future favors informative species. So the top predator Homo will be the Australopithecus Garthi that goes through a mature age of massive reproduction, probably extinguishing the other 2 subspecies and expanding worldwide into new ecological niches that favoured their genetic and memetic adaptation through a new, ternary split:
— Max. E: A regressing, energetic A. Garthi, similar but taller than its parental Australopithecus.
— E=i: Homos Habilis and Rudolfensis, with similar brain capacity to the original Garthi.
— Max. i. Homo Ergaster, an informative ape with a 1000 cc. brain, which doubles the brain capacity of Australopithecus.
II Horizon: 1000 cc. From Homo Erectus to Homo Sapiens..
That Homo Ergaster, after a massive age of reproduction and expansion throughout the planet, subdivides again in 3 sub-races of Homo Erectus.
— Max.E: Pithecanthropus, the oldest species similar to Homo Ergaster, found in Java.
— E=i: Homo Erectus proper, found in China, who grows in the informative dimension of height that favors perception from an advantage point of view, to 1.7 m. He has simple technology, a skull without forehead and thick bones that handicap further cranial evolution.
— Max. Ti: Homo Floresiensis, the smallish species, which according to the Black hole paradox should be the form who gave origin to Sapiens, as the smallish ‘pan paniscus’ evolved the chimp into the Homos. Recently discovered, he is a formal mutation with a smaller body, whose morphology resembles for the first time that of a human being. He has thinner bones that allow further growth and a higher forehead, the location of the creative part of the brain.
Palaeontologists also found the first advanced technological tools in his sites in Flores Island, which is an isolated place, the ideal region to foster further evolution, due to the lack of top predators (alopatric evolution). Thus, he ads now technological energy weapons that substitute body strength and define a single arrow of future for human evolution: information. His improvement in neurological form, probably caused first his rapid expansion thanks to his new technological tools and then a rapid growth in size through the cross-breeding with the taller Homo Erectus species, giving finally birth around 300.000 B.C., to a new energy/ information duality: The energetic, big Neanderthal and the informative Bushman, which will combine again to give birth to the different races. Those predictions based in the 3 arrows of future time and the black hole paradox (information is small and evolves in dwarf species) have been confirmed by genetic maps and Paleontology and await final confirmation, when new skulls of Floresiensis are found.
The 3rd, informative Horizon: Homo Sapiens, 1500 cc.
— The lineal, energetic, visual Homo Sapiens Neanderthal, with ±1500 cc.
— And a second informative pygmy strain, the 1st verbal woman, the mitochondrial eve, probably a bushman, also with ±1500 cc.
± 50.000 years ago she crossed into the Middle East, probably mating with earlier Neanderthals, giving origin to the visual, energetic white male (Homo Palestiniensis, whose skulls show mixed traits from both species).
± 35.000 y. ago, in the high Tibetan plains, she became the informative Mongoloid that colonized Asia, America and descended upon Europe and Africa, where she cross-bred with the capoid (bushman) and became the black man, the balanced E=i, reproductive race, completing the final, ternary differentiation of the main races of mankind.
The ternary principle that defines in complexity the most common patterns of evolution apply also to the 3 types of human minds, or memetic cultures which define the origins of history.
Further on, as racial tribes evolved socially and emerged into cultural societies, which are super-organisms of history, the ternary, racial division of mankind between energetic white men, informative Mongoloid and vitalist blacks, will become the cultural differentiation of human beings in 3 type of brain orientations, and hence cultures orf the mind according to the 3 elements of all systems, energy, information and its reproductive combination; reflected in 3 types of brain morphology:
— ‘Visual, energetic, lineal, spatial cultures’, proper of the white man, with his concepts of lineal time and his passion for technological, energetic weapons. It is the dolicocephalic brain dominated by the visual, eye to occipucius axis, also dominant in neanderthals
— ‘Cyclical, informative, mongoloid cultures’, natural to Asian civilizations, with cyclical concepts of time. It is the brachicephalic, wide, verbal brain; dominant in the ear axis; hence giving birth to female, eusocial cultures like the Chinese.
— And ‘sensory, reproductive, colored cultures’, which in Africa and India developed human senses to their limits. It is dominannt in the height/medular axis with a ‘tall head’, peaking in the top/motor and sensorial area.
Which culture is better for the survival of mankind? Since survival is the goal of all species, reached in the age of balance, E=i, we should promote, paradoxically, the culture that our technological civilization discriminates: the black, reproductive, sensory culture . . .
Thus, the Laws of Evolution and its 3±1 ages and subspecies, map out the main species of Homo, till arriving to 2 Homo Sapiens, the spatial, visual=longer, dolicocephalic, energetic brain of the Neanderthal, which seems to have lived in Europe and left some of his traits in the Homo Palestiniensis, on the slow-crossing border of Canaan. Further cross-breeding of the Palestiniensis with the Sapiens is the likely origin of the white man (white skin, red hair, Rh-?, consonantal languages, wide hips, prominent nose)
While the informative Homo Sapiens Sapiens, the verbal=wider brachicephalic brain, which started as a small ‘San pygmy’, evolved into the self-similar mongoloid race. Finally, the black race, with tall brains are the sensorial culture, the reproductive species, the last one to appear, shows the maximal genetic mixture.
In the same manner, we talk also of gender duality in terms of an energetic species, the lineal male of big muscles, spatial size and visual brain; and the woman, the informative, reproductive species, who would understand the cycles of birth of plants and evolve mankind from the energetic, hunting Paleolithic into the Neolithic, the mature age of History, with its understanding of the arrow of reproduction of the Universe (cult to the goddesses) and its harmonic cults to Nature. It is on my view, the ideal age of mankind, which bio-historians could re-create on Earth by pruning the tree of Technology of all its bad fruits and enhance the fruits of the Tree of Life with environmental policies, under a global, single Social Organism of History, the World Union (ch.13). Since once a species has reached its informative zenith or 3rd age, the only way it can further evolve is by becoming a macro-organism, joined by a common network of information. So men did evolve further beyond the Homo Sapiens, through the 4th arrow of time, the arrow of love and social evolution that mechanist science denies and verbal, social religions of love impose on their believers.
On the Earth, there are today 3 types of social organisms:
— The first to appear, Nature, Gaia, was based in carbon-life.
— Then History appeared, based in human life.
Since those 3 organic systems and species have been dominant in 3 different ages of the Earth, we talk of the evolution or terraforming of the Life-Earth or Nature into the Human-Earth or History that now becomes the Metal-earth, the economic ecosystem. The youth of History was still ‘Nature’. Life dominated the Paleolithic. Then men reached their zenith of social evolution in the Neolithic. Now men devolve back into single, selfish individual, Homo Bacteria, due to the use of machines and weapons that isolate them, in a process equivalent to the process of death that dissolves the networks of a being back into its simplest cellular components:
