“True Sciences predict the future of its species, according to Past Cycles, controlling them, to improve human life.’
In the graph, the Industrial Evolution follows a 72 ±7 years generational cycle of evolution and overproduction of energies and machines, the famous ‘Kondratieff’ cycle1,2 in which a nation discovers a new form of energy (white) applied then to the creation of new forms of money, the informative software of the economy, and new machines/weapons (red), its hardware, used by the dominant nation of each cycle to conquer the world.
The Origin of the cycle is biological (the life-span of a human being divided in 3 ‘generations’ of grand-parents, sons and grand-sons that carry the discovery and evolution of each duplet of new energies and machines to its completion). But the purpose of the cycle is ‘memetic’ – the evolution of selfish memes of metal’, weapons, money and machines, which is the purpose of our ‘technological’ civilization.
This crisis is the transitional crisis between the final age of chips, when its overproduction causes and excess of e-money (financial crisis) and chip workers (white collar pcs and blue collar robots) that throw workers out of jobs, and the beginning of the age of robotics, now in its military phase, cause of the parallel multiplication of military conflicts fought with drones.
This Blog based in my pioneer books on eco(nomic)systems that forecasted the crisis 20 years in advance, in the milieu of systems sciences and theory of information, will study the entire process of evolution of ‘memes of metal’, connecting the Kondratieff cycles of evolution of machines with the long cycles of classic history and biological evolution that preceded them, on the planet Earth, fusioning for the first time in social sciences all the different elements and disciplines of the human experience, from biology to art, from history to economics.

In the graph, we have plotted all those cycles, departing from its initial point, the discovery of a new form of mechanical energy, steam machines:
—Thus, we had a peaceful, ‘consumer’ age of steam machines, the age of England, between 1780s and 1857, followed by a crisis of overproduction of steam machines and stock-money that brought the 1857±7 years crashes of the train-based economy, due to the saturation of consumption markets that reduced profits, and a massive wave of unemployment, as the biggest job markets of the time – transportation and textiles – were sharply reduced by the competition of steam factories and trains, which absorbed all the credit of the economy, reducing investment in agriculture and welfare goods (Irish Famine, Indian ruin by British Cloths etc).
Then the crisis was solved with the Colonial age of yellow press, racist wars and the British and French Empires that ‘exported’ the surplus of human labor to the 3rd World.
—From 1857 to 1929, we lived the peaceful, ‘consumer’ age of electro-chemical energies, machines and chemistry, discovered by Germany, followed by the 1929 crash of overproduction of cars and radios, exactly 72 years after the 1857 crash, due to the saturation of markets that reduced profits and a wave of unemployment caused by mobile assembly lines that reduced to 1/2 the work force of factories and their consuming power.
And again the crisis was solved first in Germany and Japan, then in the rest of the world, with hate-radio speeches and switching overproduction to armored cars and planes= tanks and bombers, that brought II W.W. in which a surplus of 66 million workers were consumed with enormous profits for the corporations.
—It came then from 1929-2001, the US age, the cycle of peaceful, ‘consumer’ electronic machines, e-money and audiovisual media, ended 72+7 years after 1929 with the overproduction crashes of chips and e-money in 2001-08 (dotcoms, cdos), which saturated consumption markets, reducing profits and displacing hundreds of millions of workers worldwide, substituted by white collar pcs and blue collar robots.
And again the crisis is being solved NOT for the benefit of the 99% of mankind, as a serious science of economics would do, but under ideologies of financial power (classic economics) for the 1% of corporative owners, with an age of hate TV (Islamophobia, immigrant bashing), Digital weapons (military robots & internet big brother) and e-money derivatives that have increased enormously the profits of electronic, financial and industrial corporations 100 folding the invention of e-money – a digital language of information easily reproduced in electronic screens.
The bottom line: company-mothers of machines and the values of money.
At the bottom of the cycles of evolution and reproduction of machines that completely dominate our zeitgeist in the modern world, since the beginning of the industrial r=evolution, there is a change of paradigm in what humans do, based in the change of social language of power from the natural human language of verbal ethic thought, whose syntax, Man (subject) < verb (action) < object (energy of man), always puts man at the center of the Universe, and has a democratic social nature as all humans can talk… to the digital language of money, which is NOT democratic as it is external to man, issued mostly by company-mothers of machines and valuing more metal than life.
Thus once we changed language of power from a humanist to a capitalist society, we stopped the goals of mankind – to create a just, democratic world made to the image and likeness of man – and started to build a world to the image and likeness of machines, ruled NOT by human social organisations but by company-mothers there is a change of paradigm in the social language of power of mankind, from verbal ethic thought to digital money, whose values are opposed – as money, traditionally a soft informative metal atom has always valued more other forms of metal, notably weapons, than life with no value. While the values of words, a mental, human ‘flesh’ language give absolute value to human life.
Thus once this change of paradigm in our social language took place. And company-mothers of machines were given higher rights to print paper-money than states had (stock-paper, today e-money issue without limit in stocks vs. deficit zero laws), company-mothers acquired rights to buy humans full time as slaves or part-time with salaries as worker. And so regardless of what ‘type of government’ a modern society has (mostly capitalist democracies or military dictatorships) the fact remains that humans will dedicate most of their lifetime to work for company-mothers of machines for money. The ‘remaining’ time then will be mostly spent in the basic biological ‘animal drives of life’ (feeding, reproducing sheltering, curing); NOT in the task of evolving a world to the image and likeness of man.
So as we are our ‘lifetime’, and our lifetime is bought by company-mothers of machines, which are NOT human organisms, do NOT reproduce or evolve human beings, but are ‘mixed organisms’ of humans and machines with a mechanical goal, to evolve, reproduce, sell for a profit and adapt≈terraform the planet to the image and likeness of those machines, providing for them enough energy and information to make their ‘life sustainable’, humans became enzymen men-enzymes that catalyse the creation with credit, the cred(dit)ation of a new ecosystem ruled by company mothers of machines, serving the biological goals of those machines.
And indeed, today there is no machine without energy, not computer without electricity, not car without a network of roads to cross, or a place to be repaired, while 1 billion humans suffer hunger, most are uneducated, still believing in primitive myths of abrahamic religions, and the majority of mankind lacks basic healthcare ‘repairs’ even in the dominant most wealthy nations of the world (US).
The economic roles of humans in a society in which money buys our lifetime.
So in a world in which humans are part-time slaves of company-mothers of machines it has become obvious, that humans are spending its life to foster the two biological goals of corporations: to work= re-produce machines and to vitalise them as consumers. And this is indeed all what ‘information machines’ tell us to do 24/7, work and consume. o even when we are ‘released’ from our part-time slavery we are subject to systemic indoctrination to use machines NOT to relate to humans and certainly NOT to organise socially in a meaningful manner to help and evolve mankind.
It is then obvious that we live in a society whose natural goal is to create a world of machines, evolved and overproduced in a very biological sense, since machines not humans are massively adapting the world to its image and likeness, and this oblige us to consider the higher ‘perspective’ of the planet, and its biological evolution.
This is the essential fact of capitalism: a world ruled by digital money, issued by company-mothers of machines, with the goal of evolving and overproducing machines and its evil twins, weapons, which uses humans as reproducers=workers and consumers=vitalizers of those machines.
CREATIONIST ECONOMICS RULE THE WESTERN WORLD
We have just described the basic bottom line of capitalism as a ‘praxis of power of corporations’.
Then there is the ‘idol-ogy’ of capitalism, camouflaged as the ‘science of classic economics’ , which is basically the modern digital version of an old fetish gold religion (biblical beliefs that ‘gold is the invisible hand of god) since all the founding fathers of capitalism (Say, Bentham, Smith, Ricardo, Mill, Malthus), were biblical believers on the myth that certain people ‘chosen of go(l)d’ had to accumulate money, and issue it privately as $elected, in order to reach salvation.
And so as religions are about myths and beliefs, which cannot be denied, and about censorship and twisting reality to cater to those myths, capitalism merely translated in a series of equations the belief that the purpose of mankind was to increase the amount of money owned by the $elected through its ‘organisation of power’, the corporation.
And since people do NOT understand equations, obviously the goals became disguised. Let us then consider the meaning o the fundamental equations of capitalism, and its corporations, the equation of profits and productivity, which merely express the aforementioned values of money and its goals: to reproduce, evolve and terraform the earth to the image of machines, which in biological terms will displace humans from labor and war fields as Darwin clearly expressed. Since biology is all about species that reproduce and evolve faster and displace species who do not evolve and reproduce so fast from the ecosystem, in this case machines overproducing and displacing humans from the economic ecosystem in labor and war fields:
In the graph, in the final phase of capitalism its three fundamental equations of profits, self-reproductivity and zero value to human life in ‘metal-price’, drive the world towards extinction of labor, an age of perpetual war for profits and massive manufacturing of brains with hate memes, as the oldest go(l)d culture of capitalism takes power in the western world, and by imitation globalises its go(l)d memes to all other cultures, forbidding any criticism as ‘creationist economics’ becomes ‘the only authorised science or rather culture of the world.
It is then obvious that we are ruled by the duality of the praxis of money and the biblical western, jewish-protestant culture that invented corporations, and carried the process of terraforming of the earth through its nations and generations, protagonists of the modern world.
Let us consider them from the human biological perspective of those nations and generations.
The biological, human-caused periodicity of the cycles.
All those phases of the Industrial Evolution of machines have had in fact 3 ‘organic ages’: the young age of ‘discovery of a new energy, soon applied to simple ‘bombs’ and the powering of the machines of the eco(nomic)system, ushering societies into a happy age of consumption machines.
Yet according to biological laws the cycles end when the evolution and reproduction of mechanisms reaches its zenith, in a massive global crisis of overproduction of those machines, converted into the most perfect mechanical species, the weapon, which in a global war phase murders millions of life beings.
And this 3 ‘mechanical ages’ proper of the morphological evolution of those machines by imitating the human functions=organs and improving upon them, are paralleled in the human sphere by 3 ‘generational ages’ of societies adapted in memes and actions to those machines-weapons.
In the graph, the British steam age of huge ‘bodies of metal, steamers and iron horses’, German age of electro-mechanical engines discovered by Otto and Siemens, applied to cars, tanks and bombers and the electronic American cycle now in its 3rd military phase:
In the graph, we combine both symbiotic cycles, the human and metal-ones.
The periodicity of those cycles can be easily tabulated with quantitative methods; as it corresponds to the 72-80 years ‘standard’ biological, generational cycle of life and death of human beings, the discoverers or inventors of those machines.
Kondratieff, the Russian Scholar (in the background of the graph), killed by Stalin, who found those cycles however studied a shorter 50 period, as Russia was an undeveloped country where the train came latter in the cycle. So the cycle was shorter and Schumpeter, the Austrian economists that explain them, did not correct it.
In our section of general systems sciences we consider the biological basis of those phases of life. And study how the ‘new product cycles’ of electronic machines influence our present generations (We Generation, X-generation, Y-why? and Zero generations of mankind) as they atrophy and substitute human minds, creating the present world of children of thought, living a childish neoteny state, hypnotized by audiovisual machines that form the ‘matrix’ of delusional, virtual thought they care for (internet generation).
The Graph shows those 4 national Generations who build metal-bodies, engines & metal minds assembled in robots:
– British generations, who used physical, steam energy to power metal bodies, trains & steamers & print stock-money, ended after the 1857-73 crashes in an age of racist yellow press & colonial wars.
– German generations of electro-chemical engines, hearts of metal that printed electric money, the software (ticker speculation) and powered cars and planes, the hardware, ended in Nazism
– American age in which electronic systems printed e-money, the software and evolved ‘Minds of metal’; mobile-ears, cameras-eyes and chips brains now in its decadent ‘Weimar Republic’, when bankers keep printing money for themselves, militarism is on the rage and all ethic and social standards have plummeted as ‘monetary and military values’, the values of greed and violence provoked in man by the hypnotism of money and the use of weapons, reach its ‘overproduction zenith’.
– This zenith is the inaugural time for an new brave world, an age of robots & singularity weapons when all those parts are put together into organic machines, completing the industrial evolution of metal. It’s the last cycle that must be aborted for life to survive, designing instead an eco(nomic)system that switches production to welfare goods.
So as the new white collar Pcs and blue collar robots expel human workers and soldiers from labor and war fields increasing the ‘productivity’ of machines and the profits of corporations, we enter in a new ’30s’, neofascist age with the difference that unlike the previous ages, when the socialist school (Marx, Kondratieff) clarified perfectly the nature of overproduction crises, and the 30s when the Keynesian school explained it and gave solutions, as today the ’3rd age of scientific economics’, systems sciences that describe the eco(nomic)system and forecasted this crisis and its solutions long ago, is totally ignored.
Instead economists multiply their ‘thin air speeches’, damned lies and statistics hiding the true causes of the crisis of unemployment (blue collar robots and white collar pcs) and the existential crisis this process will bring to mankind.
A fundamental theme of this blog (left column) will be the study of those cycles, its overproduction crises, and the causal comparison of its main nodes, as we have done in the milieu of systems sciences, forecasting the present crisis of overproduction of chips, 20 years in advance3 with an accuracy and detail still unknown to my knowledge in books written today that go no further than the anecdote of the mortgage crisis. Forecasting is indeed the key element of a scientific true model, as all sciences predict the future observing the patterns of past cycles.So the solution to the crisis is obvious but IT MUST COME from a cultural UNDERSTANDING of what is best for man – to overproduce life goods and control the evolution of metal-goods:
