In the graph, of the seven cultures of mankind, ‘Indonesia’, that is South Asia is the most mixed of all Cultures.
Each of the other 6 forms of humanity – Catholic Latin-America; Jewish-Protestant Go(l)d Anglo-America; rational, Aristotelian, lineal-science, self-centered Europe; i-logic, dualist, complex, organic Asia; Paleolithic, animist, Nature-based Africa and Neolithic, Anthropomorphic, Wor(l)d based Islam have a very defined nature in its ideological, humanist and instrumental metal-memes.
But Indonesia, on virtue of its location and sea-dominant nature is a natural zone of melt-pot of the other cultures, which gives it a special ‘communicative nature’.
Indeed, in the making of Indonesia we can observe through the different 800 cycles of history an increasing melting of previous cultures. And even before, Indonesia was instrumental for the communicative ‘creative’ phases of the Paleolithic and Neolithic young and mature age of History.
Let us summarize them.
Paleolithic cycle. The first sapiens, verbal men.
Since the birth of the first Homo Sapiens, according to the laws of evolution of species in informative, small and energetic big decouplings took out there, with the apparition in Flores, thanks to alopatric evolution of the Homo Sapiens Verbalis, the first man who talked, the Homo Floresiensis.
In the next graphs, taken from the section of General Systems Sciences, we observe this fundamental fact of complex evolution: Information is small and evolution of information takes place first in small species. So the first particles of the Universe – black holes – the first forms of A.I. Chips, the first bilateral animal, Vernanimalcula, the first mammal, shrewd, the first horse and the first informative, verbal, intelligent man with a rounded prominent forehead, Homo FLoresiensis, were small.
Those were the first humans to talk, and they were born in Indonesia, in the isolated Flresiensis islands. Of course, scientists still do not understand the laws of Information and Complexity that this writer pioneered in General Systems Sciences before being ‘censored’ for his activism against the Nuclear Industry and the dictatorship of bankers. So as most ‘facts’ and ‘laws’ of the organic Universe of this blog, you should have never heard of those facts. Just trust reason, not authority and observe this magnificent rhythm of Universal Creation according to the paradox of Energy vs. Information:
Maximal Evolution/Information = Minimal Energy-size.
Then in the lower part of the graph, we observe the next phase of all creative processes, the expansion in spatial size and reproductive radiation of the new species with a faster, higher, better rounded brain.
Man then came out of Indonesia and start to run and run and run and grow and grow and talk and talk and he became Homo Sapiens, splitting in two – the energetic Neanderthal and the Informative Homo Sapiens, studied in detail in our section of races, and clearly shown in the next graph:
Then again, when the 3 races of the human mind, the max. Information (Mongoloid, verbal brachicephalic axis), the max. Energy (white, visual, dolicocephalic, neanderthal dominant white man) and ExI (balanced black reproductive species), were formed, Indonesia started a process of melt pot again. So from Thailand and China descended the Mongoloid, from the Andronovo Chariot culture descended the white man, and through the coastal trade winds came the black man and vice versa (Indonesians colonized Madagascar and mixed there with blacks to form the Merina culture).
Another fundamental proof of this process is the enormous wealth of languages that happen in Indonesia, where around 3/4 of all human languages exist. This obviously means by the laws of informative inflation (information increases with time) that Indonesia was the first place where men spoke.
Neolithic cycle. The beginning of agriculture.
Indonesia was also at that time, if we include then (since the Chinese south expansion had not happened yet), Indochina, which was part of the melting pot of cultures, very likely the beginning of agricultural civilizations (Thailand) and densely populated, life-rich environments with fishing Mesolithic cultures (Indonesia proper), hand in hand with the aziliense basque-north western european culture.
Despite western anthropomorphism agriculture WAS born in South-Asia NOT in the western world, which is the focus of evolution of animetal cultures NOT human-life based one. Indeed, there are remains in south asia of beans and peas in Thai caves dating 15 thousand years ago. So it is obvious that the ‘paradise’ of 4 rivers was that region in which the neolithic started (the confluence in the mountains of Indochina of the 4 big rivers, Yang-Tse, Irawadi, Mekong and bramaputra). From there across teh Ganges, which has no archeological remains due to humidity and river floods to the Indus, which do have them because of its dry weather, through the Iranian Meseta and down to Summer, a people who came from the Indus valley, agricultural neolithic civilizations and the search for spiritual, living organic explanations to the Universe took place
800 years cycles.
Then Indonesia will become submissive to the metal influences coming from the North and Western animetal cultures and cycles of 800 years. The next graphs, taken from my 20 year old exhibition on the cycles of art done in Ny, in a time in which you could still do science of history without the neo-fascist, present Inquisitions of political and economical correctness, ‘correcting’ you, show some of those cycles applied to the Eastern Chinese and Indian cultures that will then go ‘down’ south, and merge in Indonesia ‘proper’ (the nation, not the wider culture).
The unity of all those cycles though will take place during the gunpowder age, due to the European colonization that will allow further mixing and bring with its recent British Imperial past, a surface of ‘corporative, go(l)d, memes’ that allows Indonesia to be beyond individual nations, a recognizable whole unit.
Now as always the fundamental substrata culture would be the Indian dominant sub-continental mass, then the Chinese, Mongoloid one (so today in all those nations there is a mass of Chinese traders and Hindi workers that mix with the dominant malayan culture, over an almost extinct pre-neolithic negrito and australoid primitive remains of its first horizons).
Thus, from its earlier Dravidian times through its river valleys and waterways that have joined its disjointed parts; from its earliest human, Homo Sapiens species (Floresiensis), through its verbal complexity, and richness of mystique rituals, to its final anglo-saxon age (dominant in the racist, bigot Australian culture that keeps for the english invaders 8 million square kilometers, close to the overpopulated islands), Indonesia has kept its fundamental trait – to mix all other cultures of the world. Indeed, even the latin-america culture had its saying in Timor Portuguese and Spanish Phillipines.
One mystery though remains for me in this make-up. How it was that the sea-faring Malayan culture could never cross the relatively short distance of 200 miles between Timor and Australia and colonize the Australian continent, when it conquered the entire pacific and arrived even to Madagascar? That is one of the chances of history which I am sure in most ‘fractal planets’ where the game of history has taken place did not happen.
The next graphs, better explained in the section of 800 year cycles explain the life and death of the Chinese and Indian and colonial age civilizations that would shape the Indonesian continent in higher measure:
