According to our definition of science, the sciences of history and economics studied in this web and resumed in this central post should deal on one side with:
– The objective facts of the eco(nomic)system; that is, with the ‘800-80-8 year Cycles of evolution of Memes of metal’ and the causal, Scientific Biological Models that explain them.
– And then consider how the human historic experience have dealt with them:
– Either by accepting those cycles and the destruction of life and civilizations they cause, using wrong, tribal, ego-trips and ideologies that justify them or
– By understanding those cycles in all its complexity, trying to guide the evolution of memes of metal, for the profit of mankind.
So we study all those aspects in 5 parts in this post that expands in depth the analysis of the central model:

THE FINANCIAL-MEDIA/MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL SYSTEM
PART II: The American 80-8 years electronic cycle and its Financial-Media/Military-Industrial System
INTRODUCTION. THE SYSTEMIC, COMPLEX VIEW
Time is cyclical frequency, not lineal duration.
In the graph, time has always been cyclical, as each vortex of space-time; each mass or each charge is a time clock, determining a frequency or pattern of repetition origin for each time cycle of the patterns of information of the Universe. And hence space is fractal discontinuous, since a time cycle is a closed curve that breaks space into an inner and outer surface (first law of topology); being the space-time continuum a simplification or sum of all the quantum cycles of space (inner energetic region) – time (external cycle that carries the information of the system – holographic principle).
Humans reduce all cyclic, repetitive cycles of time with a single mechanical clock that equalizes them. But this ‘human time’ useful for measure is not the meaning of time. Further on, because we use a Cartesian lineal coordinates to measure time, (born of the use of time to study lineal speed and space, t=s/v), the fundamental property of time, to be cyclical, caused by the repetition of certain ‘actions’ and events by an entity of ‘existence’, is lost.
One of the fundamental reasons why our society cannot understand the cycles of history and economics and regulate it to its advantage is the Jewish->Christian->Modern cultural view of time as lineal, which ill-understood means that time cycles do not repeat themselves, hence it is not normal to see the repetition of similar events in history.
The opposite is truth.
Lineal Time or duration is merely the inverse concept of time frequency, the true meaning of time: ƒ (t) = 1/T .
As such lineal time duration is a simplification of a length of time caused by the sum of multiple time frequencies measured by a cyclical time.
Even our mechanical times measurements are done with cyclical mechanical clocks that turn around a cycle in fixed periods of time, usually an hour and 24 hours, forming a day, itself a measure of a cycle: the rotation of the Earth around its axis.
In that regard time cycles occur in all systems of the Universe, including the eco(nomic)system and history because it is the natural manner in which time flows, as a succession of similar events produced by similar causes, with a frequency related to the repetition of those causes.
Duration, the sum of the cycles, that is the product of the frequency of a cycle and its duration or ‘length of space’ crossed during each cycle (wavelength) is useful for the study of changes in the motion, speed and position of objects proper of physics. And for that reason it was adopted earlier in science by physicists studying the trajectory of objects, mostly projectiles (physics thus was born as ballistics with Galilean studies of the motions of cannon balls).
The spread of mechanism and physics in other areas of science as machines overpower human senses and physicists philosophers in the study of time, implied that what was initially a mere mathematical formula for the calculus of motions and distances, v=s/t, where time was defined as duration (though measured with frequency cycles of pendulum clocks) became a dogma.
Time became lineal in science, instead of cyclical. And in this manner it backed the pretension of the Jewish-Christian religions that there was a ‘chosen people’ with a historic, millenarianist destiny traced by an external God, in which this tribe progressed towards the conquest of the world, the manifest lineal destiny traced only one by the power of God and the Messiah.
This lineal, historic destiny as a chosen race or culture by the power of money or weapons will then create all the ‘cyclical conflicts’ of wars as nationalism, religious or racial, became the standard ideology of a divided mankind.
Such ‘lineal mess’ of manifest destinies, one for each tribe, was just a mystic transliteration of the quest for imperial power as a destiny provided by the Gods of earlier bronze cultures, the time when metal was discovered and gold and the fire of the smith became the ‘vehicle’ with the Gods, the ‘will of the Gods’ manifested in its ‘idol-metal that gave them power. Progress by the power of metal that gave the ‘chosen race or culture’, ‘by the grace of god’, the ‘path to its manifest destiny’, became then in each particular ‘animetal culture’, the lineal path of time.
Lineal time and destiny became one united in the will of God, the subconscious collective, or national spirit that saw as its finality the material and less often spiritual conquest of the world with weapons (Indo-european nations) or money (Semitic religions and civilizations).
However in the Universe at large, time is the sum of infinite time clocks cycles and waves that move and change constantly by repeating their cycles in a discontinuous and repetitive way.’
On that view it is only normal that the events of any science happen in a repetitive manner. This is in fact the true definition of science: a science is only considered as such when it studies the cycles and frequencies of the events of the species it studies and then finds its causes and in this manner it can ‘forecast’ the future.
Of course, this form of doing science is very old as it was predated in time by cyclical religions which studied the cyclical happenings and causes of reality to deduce future events.
But till the arrival of Greeks there was not a full understanding of causality. So many civilizations ascribed very often wrong causalities to myths, Gods, anthropomorphic entities and other deities that ’caused’ the Maize to grow, the storm to clash or war and pestilences to appear.
It is only the combination of a serious theory of time cycles, frequency and causality applied especifically to the causes of each type of cycle in Nature, including those of history what permits to create a scientific point of view in any subject. So for example we know that if we heat water with fire there will be boiling vapor. The causality here found is scientific, coherent, and proved by the experimental method and so the theory of heat and entropy appears as a consequence of it. In History those causalities are of biological and predator nature, due to the evolution of memes of metal and as such they define the cycles of history.
So what are the causes of those cycles? In all systems the causes are multiple.
Events happen in fact by the inter-action of different causes that flux creating into an event – a predator and a prey, a field and a particle, an informative head that moves an energetic body and so on.
In the case of evolutionary economics, the competence between life beings and memes of metal that evolve, weapons, money and machines, cause those cycles, but it is the human ‘enzymen’, or ‘animetal’, the man that catalyzes the evolution of machines of energy and information the ultimate cause – and so the periodicity of the cycle is that of the life of the ‘enzyman’ that creates new types of energy *steam, chemical, electr(on)ic, atomic energy and new machines with it.
Why this is happening all over again is obvious: Humans are ‘hypnotized’ by the ego-trips of power given to them by the stronger atoms of metal of those memes to the point of despising all what is ‘flesh’, human, Nature.
But in a systemic analysis, beyond the individual, even beyond the ‘culture of bankers and capitalism’, the true reason we are terraforming the Earth from a planet of life in which man is top predator, to a planet of machines in which man is submissive to them, and merely acts as a worker=reproducer and consumer=catalyzer of its evolution, is the creation of a global super-organism of ‘company-mothers’ of machines, whose only goal is to reproduce, evolve, sell for a profit and adapt the world to the image and likeness of those machines.
THIS IS THE ULTIMATE FACT of our world: politicos, military, cultures, individuals matter nothing, as we have created and given total control of the production of money and with it the corruption of the law, to a non-human entity of reproduction that from a biological perspective acts as if nothing matters – certainly humans dont – except the product, the machine it builds and cares for, the corporation. And following the laws of evolution of systems, this corporations have become now integrated into a global superorganism with a nervous system, of electronic money, and a brain, world-stock, awash with money to shape the world to the image and likeness of those machines. So all what humans do is to ‘follow’ the orders of the Financial-Media (informative machines and corporations)/Military-Industrial (energetic machines and corporations), which automatically evolves those machines and MANUFACTURES the human collective brain with its audiovisual systems (media) to love them.
Industrial Companies are social organisms that re=produce machines, creating the economic ecosystem, a global organism made with networks of informative and energetic machines.
And of course, it uses all planetary resources to that aim, provoking a systemic scarcity of the welfare and life goods we need to survive.
The stock-market, the brain of the economy.
We live in a World ruled by digital languages, and their species, mechanical herds. That is our present reality. A world ruled by scientific machines, stockrats, who worship technology andcompany-mothers that terraform the Earth into a new organic ecosystem, the Metal-earth.
How that construction takes place?
It is directed by an organism of reproduction, the company-mother, which has diversified into multiple species, each one in charge of reproducing an organic machine. To do so, however as any reproductive process, a language of reproduction, ‘a genetic language’ able to give orders to the elements fo the reproductive process is needed.
In the Metal-earth, that language is digital money , a language of information processed by ‘metal-brains’ [computers] about to give values, and organize with monetary orders the reprodction of machines, as your brain organizes your body system with nervous orders, or the DNA organizes the cell with genetic orders..
We humans talk with 2 languages, verbal words and digital numbers. And when we use those 2 languages to create, organize and evolve social organisms, we call them ‘laws’ and ‘money’. But while most people understand the “law” and the way it organizes social systems, none has properly studied money as a language of digital information and how it evolves and organizes economic systems. And this is one of the main reasons our economic systems and societies are so badly designed.
