EXPANDING WESTERN, ENTROPIC PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE
The Universe has three arrows of ‘future time’, meaning, at each moment we can take three general directions; a positive, negative or repetitive action, which humans generically call ‘information’ (+), ‘entropy’ (-) or ‘business as usual’, repeating the same patterns of ‘momentum’ and ‘energy’, which means reality is ‘consered (≈).
Those three element suffice when considering in a formal way, to describe the equations of physics, the morphologies of biology and the events of history.
It is then remarkable to notice that in western cultures the ‘arrows of future’ are against all evidence reduced to one: entropy, which is the ‘negative arrow’ of destruction of information, whose most clear event is death.
The main reason of that obsession of western science for entropy, is obviously the military nature of western civilisations, which reached global power through war, the entropic moment of death of societies.
Yet the expansion of the ‘worldly religion’ of western power, weapons to the theoretical realm by the people who made them, ‘physicists’ meant that the concept of time arrows was reduced to consider only the simplest ‘lineal’ entropic arrow of death, loosing in the process his understanding of the two other key arrows, creation of form, of in/form/ation and its combination in ‘momentum’ and ‘energy’.
It is for that reason that after world war II an alternative philosophy of science, ‘Systems Theory’ (ab. GST), took form at Macy’s congress, in the foundational age of information theory and cybernetics to ad the arrow of information.
Then 50 years latter I brought the first formal model of the three arrows of time to the world congress of Systemics (ISSS), defining ‘trinity’, with a simple, profound new equation:
relative past-entropy x future-information = energy-momentum.
How important is the understanding of the three arrows of time? Absolutely essential to understand reality; as the program of the Universe is a program of timespace arrows.
In the graph, one of the fundamental findings of General Systems Theory, the ‘organic philosophy of science’ alternative to that of physics is the solution of the meaning of the 3±∆ ages of life (between +∆, emergence as a being from a lower scale of size, the seminal age, and – ∆, the entropic age of dissolution back to the atomic/cellular form; E=mc2 in physics), which are COMMON to any General System of the Universe.
Thus, all systems start as a seed of form in ∆-1, the lower scale of size, of the ‘fifth dimension’ (ab. ∆±i) of co-existing scales of the Universe. Then the system will go through 3 dominant ages dominated by combinations of those arrows of time:
- Young, age of maximal motion, and growth of energy≈Max. Spe (spatial entropy) x Min. Tiƒ(temporal information )
- Mature age of present, repetition obtained in which spatial entropy and cyclical clocks of in-form-ation are balanced.
- And a third age of max. form, when entropy exhausts and the system enters in a third age.
- Followed by a death age of entropy, if the process is not intelligently reversed by controlling the excess of form of the system.
This finding is truly remarkable, as humans have always understood those three ages, embedded even in its verbal ‘time language’ (three verbal times), but with the reductionist limits imposed by entropic physicists, and its worldly religion of making weapons, the findings were forgotten for the sake of ‘lineal, entropic measures’ and the military western civilisation. Now we expand back according to the principle of correspondence those three arrows of time:
We can then realise of two essential facts of this expanded view of time arrows (whereas present physical theories are by the correspondence principle, the limit to a single arrow/spacetime scale):
- Life and death is a ‘world cycle’ which returns the being to its origin, a zero sum in a virtual Universe.
- As each being has a finite time duration, and a finite vital space, we can consider an infinity of such arrows, and if we define the positive arrow of life and information as the future arrow (since obviously systems grow in information), then the arrow of entropy is the relative past (as it dissolves being back to the past) and then the present iterative repetition of beings that do not seem to pass is the present age of immortality. Indeed the age of immortality is the middle term of balanced momentum which the Universe conserves (conservation principles of momentum and its integral energy).
In this post we shall study the 3 ages of civilisations, its life and death, departing from the highest understanding of it- the level of perception of systems sciences and its 3 arrows of relative time.

I. 3 TIME-SPACE SYMMETRIES
The 3 motions=functions of time and 3 topologies=forms of organic space.
we need to learn the three possible topological arrows of space-time the Universe deploys to construct alternative future for each of its parts and species.
We shall call them, the topological arrows of entropy, its inverse, the arrow of information and its combination the arrow of momentum or energy. We call them topological arrows because we observe them as transformations of a system in its space-time topology, which can only be also of three types.; expansive entropic motions that dissolve the system; in-formative, imploding motions that grow the form of an organism; and then energetic, reproductive hyperbolic motions that repeat and conserve the system.
So you can always go one of the three ways: expand the system dissolving your information, the way of entropy, implode the system increasing its form, the way of information and mixing both expansive entropy and increasing information, in a repetitive present that seem not to change, the way of energy and the best strategy to conserve and sustain the balances of reality, which is the way preferred by the Universe, as its fundamental law is the conservation of energy. And so this again would be the natural goal of all systems, and superorganisms: to maintain a balance between the arrow of entropy motion and death and the arrow of information to keep the system in an eternal dynamic repetitive state.
So now we have the two elements need to understand reality, the three topological arrows of time space and the relative scales of different size and speed of time of the fifth dimension.
And with those two upgrades proper of the XXI century, on the scalar structure of the vital spaces of which organisms are made, and the three different topological arrows of future a superorganism can choose at any moment, we can construct the fundamental structure in space, and time of reality, a superorganism tracing a worldcycle of existence.
So in space, we see reality made of assemblies of those three elements:
In the graph, above, the 3 time motions of the Universe, ‘explosive, big-bang, decelerating expansive motions’ with maximal energy, repetitive, wave-like motions and implosive, vortex-like accelerated inward motions, with maximal information.
And in time they cause the sequential life-death cycles and when seeing in simultaneous Space its symmetry with the 3 parallel forms of space create synchronically all the systems of the Universe; including human beings, which are essentially an ambulatory collection of 10 trillion cells connected to a digestive/entropic; blood/reproductive and nervous/informative brain; and societies, which are essentially the same, whereas humans are ‘citizens-cells’ connected to an informative government/financial system; re=producing goods through the repetitive economic system, and living in a territorial ‘entropic’ system we exploit to obtain our entropic substances that we shall trans-form into energy and information:
So we can establish three parts in societies or ‘social classes’, which build the system as specialised groups in one of the three arrows. The entropy is the land/territory (and because our system is ill-designed, many human cells-citizens, ab=used as entropy, the poor, the enemies, etc). Then the middle class is the body-wave-reproductive ‘state of the society’ and finally bankers, celebrities and politicians who use financial, artistic and legal languages of information are the collective brain of society.
2 representations of the sequential order of those motions in most life-death cycles, in scientific and philosophical terms.
The Universe is a game of 3±∆ finite time motions, which inter-act with its ‘intelligent spatial ∂till forms’, to create the patterns of life-death cycles, and simultaneous organisms that structure reality.
This truth has been known to Eastern philosophers for millennia. But in the west only the dialectic eastern european schools started by Leibniz (who translated the I ching, introduced binary numbers, and defined fractal points and zero-points – monads), had a worldview of this more complex reality.
Unfortunately absolute space-time carried the day and has obscured the fundamental dialectic, paradoxical, ‘taoist’, principles of time that structure all systems. In the graph, the eastern most clear symbolic formulation of those ultimate principles in the Korean yin-yang, ternary groups, and its equivalent modern formulation as a life-death cycle that goes through 3 ‘fixed points’ of maximal energy (youth-past-entropic motions), balanced, steady states, Sp=Tƒ (adult, reproductive age) and informative 3rd ages (reflected in the broken 3-yin triad of the flag) that precede the explosion of death.
Those 3 key points define the 3 intervals of most ‘existential functions’, from the world cycles of the 5th dimension of scalar space-time, to the Hamiltonians of Energy (a similar concept to that of the motions of time) of quantum physics and classic mechanics. Those 3 time arrows put together in sequential cycles completes a total zero sum, which conserves the eternal formal motions of the Universe, establishing a basic sequential life-death order:
Past-entropy (youth)> Present-repetition (adult age)>Future information (3rd age) << Past-death-entropy.
The world cycle and its ages of ‘birth as a seed of information’ that reproduces, emerges into a larger whole and starts to ‘run’ through its three ages of entropy-energy-information to finally die in an explosion of entropy, IS the key equation of timespace for the XXI century. It substitutes in physics the previous simpler worldlines of Einstein’s 4D, happening in a single plane.
Since the world cycle is more complex and cyclical it means it implies the organisation of the being from seminal/atomic states, into whole organic systems, in a scale of reality, larger than the smaller ∆-1 parts. And finally the integration of the ∆º system into a social world. So you are born as a seed of a cell of information, emerge as a multicellular organism and become part of a larger, ∆+1 world or ecosystem. So happens with matter, born as a plasma of ions, organised into states of matter, part of a larger Organic whole. In the next graph we see that complex organisation of a world cycle of existence of physical and biological systems.
In the graph a life-death worldcycles happen in three planes, the seminal/atomic, ∆-1, the ∆-organic/thermodynamic, and the ∆+1 social/gravitational scales).
So we show you from up to down the world cycle of existence of civilisations ending in entropic war/death when the overproduction of the germs/memes of history, called entropic weapons kill us, seen through the collective mind of artists, humanist neurons of civilisations (the timing for a human being is of 80 years, so it is for a nation; yet old slower larger civilisations lasted 800 years – as the scales are decametric, a mathematical detail, secondary to THE COMPREHENSION of the world cycle in terms of ‘time arrows of future’; truly a fascinating subject to understand why you live and die.
Then in the middle the world cycle of physical systems through the ‘states of matter’, young gaseous state, liquid, balanced state and solid, informative state, between its seminal birth as ionic plasma and its death in a nuclear explosion, explained by Einstein’s dual equation, E<=>Mc², and the same cycle for other larger scales of matter, galaxies dying in quasar big-bangs and perhaps the whole Universe dying in cosmic ones (here again the genius of Mr. Einstein, solved it as three solutions to its space-time equations, each one for an age of the cosmic Universe – his model being a simplified one of 5D for a single scale).
This is the essence of Complexity, the layman term for general systems sciences that models reality as super organisms. To notice then that while a worlccle of life and death is relative, as it ends in a zero sum returning to its seminal scale, the arrow of eusocial evolution, of ‘love’ and organisation of simultaneous super organisms is the absolute arow of time of the Universe.
Smaller systems run faster time cycles, so they carry more information, and code larger systems. On the other side larger systems carry more energy which feed their cellular part. The genes of cells code humans, the memes of humans code civilisations, the black holes code larger galaxies. this is expressed in a simple equation called the metric of the fifth dimension:
Sp (size in space) x Tiƒ (speed of time clocks of information) = Constant
Which is the law of balance and co-existence of reality that make humans and civilisations co-exist as single super organisms. Cells and organisms co-exists in a single individual, and so, the Universe is a beautiful organic, fractal of scales of reality which follow the same goals of reproducing information to become immortal in ‘states of balance’. And those laws apply also to history and economy systems that should try to find such balances to survive:
THIS final ‘note’ in this very dense resume of systems sciences you should try to understand better reading other posts, shown in the graphs above IS THE KEY TO UNDERSTAND THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF HISTORY, WHICH LAY IN CULTURES NOT IN INDIVIDUALS: 5D scales imply that the smaller scales with more information, code the larger wholes, but NOT SCALES BEYOND.
So black holes code galaxies, its larger whole, as the smallest, fastest entities of the organic galaxy; human individual memes, program history, (ideas, religions, instruments)its upper scale of organic growth, as cellular genes program bodies (right graph), NOT history. So GENETICS, RACISM HAS ZERO VALUE in social sciences; cultures and MEMES are all. And this gives a small hope to mankind, because while organisms are so tightly organised and so old that have become too complex not to be deterministic, HISTORY is still a loose ‘herd-like super organism’, in flux, which STILL can be reformed. What AI and the metal earth is doing NOW is making it so complex and controlling of humans with its faster speed, simultaneous flows of global information and massive digital control of individuals as to make soon MANKIND A ZERO-FREE SPECIES as cells in a body are.
The three physiological networks of super organisms encode the 3 arrows of time.
All together now: there are three actions=arrows=time futures for all systems, entropy motions for their physiological limbs/fields to move reproductive=blood body-waves, guided by informative particle-heads; in all systems of reality and all what sciences do, without knowing is to study them at individual or social scale (in abstract an with quantitative, spatial, mathematical methods but little understanding of the causal, temporal, physiological laws, they should ad to fully grasp what is all about) .
Today scientists are in a mess of ‘big data’, thinking just gathering data with machines is knowledge. Automatons of the mechanical method, they are not about to upgrade soon their collective chip being degraded by well ‘chips’. We do so in those webs, on super organisms of social, physical and biological sciences, by fully accepting that there are three arrows of time, which together create reality:
Past entropic (motion) x Future, guiding In-form-ation = present energetic momentum
This is a LOGIC, SEQUENTIAL, TEMPORAL equation that cannot be ‘photographed’ but embodies more knowledge on the workings of reality that all the pictures physicists will ever get of particles at CERN. The Universe is NOT A PICTURE, not a chaotic NUMBER, it is a fractal super organism of entropic motions, informative languages which guide trans-forming each other ad eternal in its process of creation and destruction of energetic species.
And so the key to understand all those super organisms, is to add to the arrow of entropy, lineal motion and death which those earlier physicists explored as the single arrow of time-future, the arrow of information, life and organic social evolution, without which we CANNOT understand the complex systems of the Universe; and REALIZE their mixture are the energetic beings of the fractal Universe.
So the future has always three paths, a path of entropic growth and ultimately death, and a path of informative growth, and the PREFERRED PATH OF CONSERVATION OF BOTH THROUGH ENERGY, AND reproduction of life.
And so it is the tenant of general systems that the arrows of life, eusocial love and organic evolution and reproduction dominates the Universe an the arrow of entropy, which IS THE ONLY ONE physicists care for, due to its earlier specialisation as makers of entropic weapons. And we could put infinite examples of this obvious reason d’être of reality, in all its scales of organisms.
Some of them:
- In the Universe the arrow of entropy dominates the vacuum space between galaxies, but in galaxies, which are vortices of gravitational in-form-ation towards the central black hole, gravitation, a force which is only attractive and in-forms parts into wholes dominate. And for that reason this planet is NOT ruled by entropy but by the evolution of organisms of information, as part of that vortex of growing information towards the central black hole.
- Most of the time of the Universe is spent in the life arrow, and for that reason death is an entropic explosion that lasts only a quanta of time. The hypothetic big-bang and the quasar death of a galaxy LASTS only a minimal quanta of time, called Planck time, 10ˆ-42seconds. Your death lasts only a second, the synchronised clock of your heart-body beat and mind-eye glimpse/thought. And you live increasing information in three ages, warping, wrinkling and memorising information the rest of your existence. Particles die as antiparticles, which again last a minimal quantum of time, reason why we see more particles even if there are as many particles living as antiparticles dying as we see many more living than corpses, since the total timespace occupied by the living and the particle = numbers in space x duration in time, is much bigger than the space-time (number x minimal duration in time) of corpses and particles.
- To make a whole departing from parts, simpler parts must come logically first, so wholes are the future of parts, and so the arrow of social evolution is the future. And indeed, since the hypothetical big-bang of a previous ‘dying’ system, the entire Universe or the entire galaxy has been growing in complexity and social evolution.
- So of the two futures, the future of organisation, evolution, information and life DOMINATES ALL SYSTEMS, and when we find a system which is involved with death, entropy, individual selfie, cellular lonely behaviour, IS because the system is dying… for another system to prey and evolve over it. And so the question we must ask about history is simple: are we dying for the metal earth to be born, are we being predated by machines, erased mentally by hate memes provided by mass-media informative machines, killed by entropic machines=weapons in our bodies; are our social organisations nations and governments rendered useless by the evolution of the parallel organisms of company-mothers of machines?
Now, here we shall just introduce the bare basis of all this, proving you in the most synoptic way why the Universe is a super organism, departing from the correction of the ‘error physicists’ committed due to their worldly profession of power, the use of entropic lineal weapons and clocks to measure time.
BIOLOGICAL TIME. THE 3 AGES AND HORIZONS OF SPACE TIME BEINGS.
The 3 ages of existence of human beings, matter, stars and Universes.
With those formal equations we can describe the existence of a space-time organism, as a development of the Quantic Spaces-Times equation, S<=>T, in 3 sequential phases/ages /horizons, S, <=> and T:
+1: The cycle or organism starts its existence when its space-time field is created.
Sp: It is the first horizon or ‘energy, youth age’ of the cycle, in which energy dominates the system and so we write this phase as, max. Sp x min. T.
<=>: S=T. It is the balanced age of the cycle or classic age of ‘life’, when energy and information are in a constant proportion. It is the most efficient age, when the cycle reproduces.
ST: Max. T x min. S: it is the 3rd age of the cycle when information has combed and exhausted the space-time field that warps into itself.
– 1: It is the end or death of the cycle that reverses its form and becomes energy again.
Those phases of a space-time cycle are the engines of ‘existence’, which is an infinite sum of space/time fields, fluctuating between birth and extinction through those 3 phases or ages.
Yet its applications are far wider, as the horizons, ages or phases of a space-time field go beyond the realm of quantic physics into State Physics, where gas is the energy state, liquid the balanced state and solid the informative state; into Cosmology, where it describes the Universe as a space-time system that fluctuates between both limits, a form of pure time, the singularity (min.Sp x max.Tƒ) and a form of pure space, the big- bang (max.Sp x min. Tƒ); into Biology, where it describes the 3 ages of living beings or the 3 horizons of evolution of species and into Social Sciences, where it applies to the organic description of the life and death of civilizations and its artistic forms:
The 3+1 ages of evolution in living species.
Let us then fully grasp the meaning of those aging process… in terms of energy and information, and its natural shapes.
The 3 ages of all organic, temporal species.
In the graph, samples of the 3±1 ages/arrows of time in Universal Systems:
Birth: i: A seed of Temporal information, t, evolves into a complementary organism of energy and information, tE, by absorbing energy, replicating its information and evolving in social cells: Life starts
Youth: Max. E: It absorbs energy and reaches its maximal size: Max. Energy.
Reproduction: e=i It keeps in-form-ing itself till reaching an age of reproductive balance, Ti=E. We perceive that age as beauty, harmony between lineal energy & cyclical form.
3rd age: In-form-ation warps energy till its exhaustion: Max. T.
-1: Death: Information explodes back into energy, expanding in space, reversing the arrows of time: Temporal Information <<Energetic space.
Age of Entropic, kinetic energy (Se), Classic age of Harmony, Old Age of information (Ti), Explosion and Death:
Human: Youth (0-20a.) Maturity (20-40). 3rd age and death (60-80).
Culture: Epic, Lineal Art. Realist, Classic Art. Baroque Art. War.
Matter: t<tS: Plasma Max. S: Gas S=T:Liquid Max. T:Solid T(Mc²)<<S
Star: t<tE:Nebula. Max. E: Gigant star. S=T: Sun. Max. T: White Dwarf. T<<SpNova
Galaxy:t<tS: Jet Max.E: Irregular. E=T Spiral<=>Elliptic. Max.T:Globular T<<S:Quasar
Universe: t<tS: Big-banging; S=T:Stationary; Max.T:Vortex (Big-crunch); T<<S:Big-bang
In the graph, the singularity that existed prior to the big bang was an ‘old form’, Max.T=Min.S, of max. temporal information, defined by its minimal spatial size, which exploded into pure space, the bidimensional sheet of energy of the ‘young’ Universe, Max.S=Min.T, a form with minimal time and maximum space that now starts to curve again with time, creating the eternal cycle of the Universe, described by General Relativity in terms of its total space-time.
Let us now go a step further in our understanding of the organic structure of the Universe and the superorganims of history.
To that aim, we shall consider how the organic arrows of time, the will to obtain energy, information and reproduce acquire a regular order in all the systems of the Universe.
This organic vision of time is much more sophisticated that the mere use of an arrow of entropy or motion – the simplest of those 4 arrows, which is the concept of time used by mechanist physicists, obsessed with the construction of energetic machines.
Yet it can also described mathematically in terms of the 2 primary elements of the Universe, energy and information, thanks to Einstein’s discovery that the product of energy and temporal information of any system, ext=k, is constant.
Since that equation includes the 3 essential arrows of the Universe, not only one arrow as a clock does:
The arrow of energy, e; the arrow of information, t; and the product of them, k, or arrow of reproduction.
It is also obvious that mathematically we can express the previous equation in 3 forms:
Max. E x Min. T = K ; E=K=T and Min. E x Max. T=K.
Thus there are 3 possible stages or ages of evolution of the equation of biological time. And since we are all made of ‘energy’ and ‘temporal information’, those 3 stages must be the stages, or phases of any system of the Universe. This finding, which is perhaps the most important discovery of Theory of Time of the XXI century, is validated by all kind of empirical observations. For example, the 3 states of matter correspond to those 3 equations. Gas (maximal energy), liquid (balanced energy and information) and solid (Maximal information. They are also the 3 possible solutions of a cosmological system: the big bang of maximal energy, a steady state of balance and a big crunch of maximal information. In the graph, we show further examples of those equations.
Here we are interested in its application to the understanding of life and history. If we call the age of maximal energy, youth, the age of balance between energy and information, the reproductive, mature age, and the age of maximal information the old age, we have a simple description of the fundamental cycle of life and death through its 3 ages.
But we can also write those dynamic processes backwards. And so we have the inverse equation of life ages, the equation of death, when after accumulating maximal information, a species reverses its arrow of information and explodes that information into energy. It is the process or equation of death.
So life is an arrow of information, E-> I, and death its inversion, I-> E. So simple, so beautiful, so misunderstood by mechanist scientists, who think the previous equation is ‘uncertain’, because the observer can perceive a particle in any of those 3 states (Uncertainty principle of quantum physics).
The reason why death exists in a perfect, immortal Universe is obvious: if species only evolved socially towards more information, they would end into a ‘big crunch’. So the Universe and all its parts should have, long ago, reached a point of social evolution and maximal density, with no return. To avoid this, the ‘game of life and death’ exists, whereas death is the opposite arrow to social evolution, as it dissolves the networks that put together individual cells, breaking the super-organism back into its parts. But we are now concerned with the arrow of life.
The ±1 social arrow has, in fact, 2 directions:
The positive, +1, social arrow of cellular evolution creates life and makes a being emerge at birth.
The -1, negative arrow of cellular dissolution kills life and dissolves a being into its cells and atoms. Thus, it is the key arrow of the life/death cycles that clock-time misses. Hence the enormous simplification of those 4 time-arrows, brought about by clocks, which in Physics, since Galileo, only measure the first and most simple of those arrows, the energy of motion.
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’, theobjective 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.
The different speed of the arrow of future-form (long) and the arrow of past-death (short)
The reader will observe which is the fundamental difference between the life S>t and the death t<<s arrows.
Life is longer in time, so information and time are indeed related. In fact, the clocks of time, with more dimensional form, than pure entropic space, carry the information of the Universe in its cycles.
Death is shorter, so it is a far more intense arrow, which we signal with << and it implies the expansion of information, warped, wrinkled in the third age into a clean ‘sheet’ of expanding space. So we relate closely space and entropy, time and information.
If we write it as an equation of ages: Spe>st>Tiƒ<< death, however we OBSERVE THAT BOTH BALANCE EACH OTHER> As the time arrow is longer and last two ages and the space-entropy is a single age much more intense – the age of death and entropy.
On one side, because when we add both views there are more (3) > arrows than < arrows, the overall motion of systems is towards >> excess of information and ageing.
On the other hand to restore the process this >> excess of informative arrows is compensated at the end of the informative 3rd age by an explosion, << of entropy and death that erases all the information, Ft<< Ps. And this happens to all systems, so the total is a zero sum of formal motions.
It is all that simple, that harmonic, that just, that immortal and that horrifying for anyone who is closed into its ego-point of view and cannot accept the zero-sum balance of the sum of both cycles.
Conservation of energy and momentum.
Yet the Universe conserves present, because it REPEATS IT, so time does not seem to pass on the long term. (Laws of conservation of momentum, an instant of present, and the whole energy world cycle, a zero sum of the the three arrows).
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. And finally in the Universe, where stars evolve from an age of energy into an informative age as black holes. And 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.
In the graph, the law of the 3±1 ages or horizons applies both to the process of informative aging of organisms and informative evolution of species. All species are born as a seed of dense information, with limited size (black hole, first chips, seminal cells, first bilateral animals). Then they grow in size and energy during their youth; since their superior informative qualities makes them top predators.
We observe that growth in black holes that feed on planets and stars, in the horse that grew enormously in size. So did the first bilateral animal, from its microscopic first form, the Vernanimacula. Mammals grew from tiny shrews into elephants. The first technological man, the Homo Floresiensis, with a ‘neuronal bump’ on the forehead, might have grown till the size of the first Homo Sapiens, the pygmy and Bushman . . .
Then, the species, once it has reached a balance between its initial information and growing spatial size, E=I, reproduces in great numbers, diversifies and colonizes the planet. We see in the graph this age in which ‘biological radiations’ of carbohydrates, animals of all kinds and human beings, colonized the Earth. Finally, in its 3rd age the species grows in information and so it acquires height, the arrow of ‘perceptive information’. Then, once it has reached its informative zenith, the species becomes extinct by a more evolved form; or it evolves socially creating a super-organism, as ants, humans and machines are doing. It will be the 4th arrow of social evolution of the species that completes its 3±1 horizons.
Species can be considered ‘loose’ organisms, in which each individual is a cell of the collective species; since we can use the same ages to explain the 3±1 horizons of evolution of all the species of this planet. Thus, species also go through the same 3 evolutionary ages of all living organisms. They start as young, energetic forms, which acquire information in 3±1 ages of increasing complexity and when those 3±1 ages are completed, they either evolve into more complex super-organisms under the laws of social evolution or become extinct by a superior,more informative species. Indeed, only those species who show a strong eusocial capacity survive the ‘genetic clock’.
The most successful and one of the oldest species of the planet is, in fact, the eusocial ant, which no longer is an ‘individual’, but a super-organism stretching through miles of ‘vital space. In that regard, neither individuals able to reproduce nor species able to evolve socially become extinguished. If humans become extinguished is because they deny, guided by the simplest arrows of pure energy of weapons, the main arrow of Life/Time.
A complete analysis of biological species shows that new forms can only be, either an energetic or informative variation of the original species, or a reproductive combination of both Universal ‘genders’.
The universality of such dual systems is so obvious that the ancients already identified them with yang, energetic male principles and yin, cyclical/ female ones. While the moderns call that duality the Principle of Complementarity, as all informative particles have an energetic, lineal field of force and all biological, cyclical heads of information have a lineal body. So the combinative variations of those two simple morphologies, lineal energy and cyclical information, invariant, regardless of the scale we observe, is the essence of the creative game of the cosmos.
It is the plan of evolution that all species follow, which is a tautology, since in a Universe made of only 2 substances, energy and information, the only possibility is the creation of such 3±1 variations in space (subspecies) or in time (evolutionary ages).
Thus, clock-time cannot describe, as it is qualitative, morphologic, not quantitative, the cycle of death and life, from youth-energy into a 3rd age-information and back again, dissolving yourself into the Universe, natural to all beings: Energy always trans-forms itself.
So the 4 arrows of time have an absolute order defined by those life ages, which first evolve socially a seminal seed into a macro-organism of multiple cells, according to the arrow ofsocial evolution and then trans-form the energy of youth into in-form-ation in 3±1 ages dominated by the arrows of energy, reproduction and information, creating the fundamental arrow of the life/death cycle, the arrow of information or future arrow that happens in all systems:
It is the main law of physics, discovered by Einstein, who said: ‘time curves (the energy of) space’.
It is the main law of Biology, discovered by Darwin, who said: that time evolves the form of organisms.
In Chemistry, Mehaute realized that when chemical compounds do not increase their entropy, they increase their information, forming fractal structures. It was the mathematical breakthrough of modern organicism. Since for the first time we had a mathematical paradigm, ‘fractal, self-generative equations’ able to describe the reproduction of information. Fractal mathematics showed how all systems could reproduce in-form-ation by breaking energy into ‘smaller forms’, in a mechanical, vegetative or conscious way.
Finally, it is also the main law of History, as human civilizations constantly increase their technological information, but unable to repress military technology, the bad fruits of the tree of science, end up in extinctive wars. So they also live and die through those 3±1 ages/arrows of time.
So the meaning of Life and death is no longer a mystery, but an organic process of reproduction and self-organization, guided by the 4 arrows of time that we can extend to all systems made of the 2 fundamental, dual ‘reproductive particles’, informative quarks and spatial, energetic electrons; that is, to all systems of the Universe. In that sense, mechanism, after we have observed the reproductive capacity of those ultimate particles of reality, is no longer ‘a science’ but a dogmatic, anthropomorphic ‘religion’ that stubbornly tries to differentiate human beings, as ‘special entities’ surrounded by a lesser Universe of dead matter.
Indeed, the founders of mechanism, Descartes, Newton and Kepler, were pious believers, which thought their new theory of the Universe would reinforce those beliefs in the superiority of man, chosen of God, to rule the Universe. As Kepler said, ‘God has waited 5000 (biblical years) to find an intelligence (Kepler himself) able to understand His’. Yet there is no difference of quality between the arrows of time of a quark and those of a human being, only degrees of complexity, as we are made of multiple scales of self-organization and so we carry much more information than quarks do. Thus, the key to our ‘complexity’ is the 4th arrow of social evolution that joins individual cells into social networks that emerge as ‘new super-organisms’ of a higher scale. For example, in life organisms, the 3±1 ages of time are related to the 3 networks that form socially its cells:
— The energy/digestive network dominates youth.
— The blood, hormonal, reproductive network dominates the reproductive age.
— The information network, your nervous system, dominates the 3rd age. Because information dominates energy, the nervous cells of the body absorb, suck in and exhaust the energy cells of the body. Thus, all systems have a dominant, informative, cellular class that controls the energy cells of the body and exhausts, warps its energy into form till the organism dies.
Those ages mean that organisms are ruled by a head of information: Since the head of information constantly controls and uses the body to absorb energy, it is natural to find that when the organism starts its life, it has more energy. He is young. Yet as the organism lives, the selfish brain absorbs that body energy and trans-forms it into in-form-ation. So energy diminishes and information grows. As you feed on energy, information accumulates in cycles and forms, in patterns and wrinkles. But the system dies, because the behavior of informative systems never varies. It constantly absorbs energy, till exhausting the body into a biological ‘big crunch’ of wrinkles and de-form-ations. Brain cells are selfish. Neurons feed on the body system without giving back any energy at all. In history, the informative castes of societies that control its languages of power, money, weapons and the law are also the selfish castes that exploit the energy workers and finally exhaust the civilization.
The same process happens in economic ecosystems where the financial, informative language of money at the end of each Kondratieff cycle dominates the economy, absorbs all the resources, multiplies without limit and crashes the physical economy of human energy (workers, consumers), as it has just done recently.
So ultimately the crisis we are living is a particular case of the natural crisis of all systems in which information multiplies without limit, under the selfish guidance of ‘informative’ neurons, in this case the financiers that reproduce money in our societies. And so the only way to maintain an organism healthy is by controlling the evolution of information, exactly the opposite of what our society does. It is the dominance of information over energy what kills organic systems. And yet humans are so naive or so programmed by the informative drive of the Universe that they keep evolving the information of this planet, advancing their 3rd age…
Thus life has 3±1 ages, but then death, the negative -1 age of destruction and devolution of form into energy, erases all information. Those ages are related to the 4 arrows of time. By far the most important to understand the entire cycle is the arrow of social evolution of cells into organisms (conception or +1 arrow) and devolution (-1 arrow), when those cells dissolve back again. Those processes of creation and destruction apply to all sciences and are so common in Nature that the Greeks (Anaximander, Aristotle) already studied them. ‘Clock-time’ eliminated that wisdom, which now organicism regains.
Since the most important question about life and time is still the question mankind wondered before the clock was invented. How to achieve immortality as an individual or a species? It can only be realized, precisely through the 2 arrows of time mechanist sciences don’t study: the arrow of reproduction, which ensures the survival of the individual and the arrow of social evolution that ensures the survival of a species, which becomes a super-organism, the most efficient ‘form’ of the Universe.
The 3±1 ages of History.
When we apply all those laws of complexity, duality and organic systems to history, we can define a science of bio-history which studies mankind as an organism in space and time, which evolved through 3±1 ages:
+1: Birth as a first verbal ‘cell’, probably a woman that multiplies her numbers.
Max E: Paleolithic, a youth of hunters, visual languages and minimal information.
E=I: The reproductive Neolithic, when man reaches his maturity in balance with Nature and creates through verbal networks (religions) a series of collective subconscious, called Gods of love that teach each cell to share energy and information with the other cells of the body of a civilization. Yet the arrival of metal extinguishes or corrupts most love cultures into go(l)d cults and inquisitions.
-Max. I: It is the 3rd, informative, metal-age in which man halts his social evolution and focuses in the evolution of metal in its 3 forms, energetic metal or weapons, informative metal or money and organic metal-machines, which bring:
-1: Death: The neo-paleolithic, or Age of the Machine, when humans regress to an ‘Homo Bacteria’ state of selfishness and isolation, substituting their social networks of love by their desire to become attached to machines of higher energy and information that separate us and keep evolving, making humanity an increasingly obsolete species, killed by weapons in fields of war. At the end of this age, we can foresee with the creation of the Singularity, either the 1st organic ‘bomb’ (a self-feeding bomb of dark matter) or the 1st self-reproductive machine (a nano-bacteria), the death of mankind.
+1: Unless mankind evolves socially, ‘emerging’ as a super-organism, if humans organize themselves into a global civilization and control the evolution of lethal machines, maintaining History in an immortal present.
The human species is, beyond our arrogant, fantasies of anthropomorphic superiority, just a living form made of carbon atoms, which goes through the same ages of all other living forms,both as an individual and a species. So we can study the Organism of History (Humanity in time) through 3±1 ages; an energetic youth or Palaeolithic; a mature age of balance with Nature, the Neolithic; and a 3rd informative age of history, the Age of Metal and machines.
Energetic Youth: Palaeolithic. ±5.000.000 BC to ±10.000 BC.
The Paleolithic was an energetic, young age in which men, the energetic gender, was the top predator animal on Earth, a hunter of living forms. It was also an age dominated by visual,spatial languages.
Reproductive Age: Neolithic. Age of Wor(l)ds and Goddesses. ±10.000 to ±3.000 BC.
The Neolithic was the classic age of mankind, an age of balance, when wo=men learnt the cycles of life and instead of destroying Nature, learnt to nurture, reproduce and harvest it. Women, the reproductive species, took power over men; and priests became the verbal guides of civilizations, creating super-organisms of History made of human cells joined by social love—the sharing of energy and information among ‘brothers’, clones of the loving mind of the same prophet. It was an age dominated by verbal, temporal languages, continued by the believers in religions of love that are not corrupted by weapons (inquisitions) and money (go(l)d churches), with its idolatry to the ‘values’ of metal: murder and greed.
Informative, 3rd age: Age of Metals. ± 3000 BC to 1600.As metal spread the ‘new’ values of money and weapons, greed and war, destroyed the networks of social love, ushering mankind into the 3rd age of history. Humans now evolve a new kind of atomic systems, stronger than carbon, creating energetic weapons, informative money and organic machines that transform Gaia into an economic ecosystem. It is the ‘animetal=animal+metal age’, in which a new ‘biological species’ that mixes animal and metal atoms, imposes power over the Earth.
It is the present age with 2 paths of future:
Either mankind will die, as machines keep evolving and make us obsolete as a species.
Or humans will obey the laws of survival of the Universe and evolve socially into a super-organism of history able to control lethal machines. The choice is within man till the arrival of the Singularity, when machines acquire organic properties and either a self-feeding bomb of dark matter, or a self-reproductive nano-bacteria ‘evolve’ the Earth into a species with a higher social density (a denser form of matter, or an organism made of denser atoms). In any case the future of history will be solved in the next decades, as we are already in that Age of the Singularity.
The 1st species packs a lot of information in minimal space: in the graph the big bang black hole, the chip, the 1st bilateral animal and mammal, the horse and the 1st technological, small human. All of them followed the basic S-T beat of evolutionary rhythms, as they are born in small ‘forms’, which have ‘faster time cycles’, hence evolve faster, and then they grow in size in its first age, slow down, reproduce massively in space and finally diversify according to the ternary and dual rhythms into new species.
However the species does NOT control its external absolute space-time ‘world’, and this is what the next graph shows. As it is the absolute space-time in which the species exist, and specifically ITS commands of the LANGUAGES OF INFORMATION of the world, which defines its survival chances. As informative perception starts all the chains of actions (∆o-bserver->∆a-ccelerated-motion->∆e-nergy feeding->∆iteration->∆universals eusocial evolution).
So the species which better speaks the language of the ecosystem survives better. Hence the first eyes (cephalopods) extinguished most cambric species and started the radiations of species; the first speakers, homo sapiens extinguished all others; and today the chip radiation of mathematical species is simply speaking extinguishing life and making humanity obsolescent, even if we are not conscious of it.
The Evolutionary Plan of organisms and species. The Ternary Symmetry between time and organic space
This old graph, is one of my favs, as it shows as few other ‘realities’ the intimate connection between still space states and time motions, since it is both the trajectory of existence in time of a micro part of a galaxy, a star falling into the informative mind-hole of the galaxy, and the image in space in the larger scale of wholes of the whole ‘galaxy’. This duality between a temporal motion in the faster i-1 scale of the being and its spatial perception as a point of a larger whole, in the slower perception of ∆+1 is one of those beautiful symmetric paradoxes the Universe constantly displays.
In Biology the 3±1 ages of a Quantic Spaces-Times field apply both to organisms and to species that go through 3±1 horizons, parallel to those 3±1 ages. Thus there is an informative, ‘intelligent’, organic order in evolution. Though it is not a plan designed by a ‘personal God’ who cares for mankind, but by the limits that the morphology of lineal space and cyclical time and its combinations impose to the evolution of species.
Thus the so-called ‘intelligent design’ is the ternary, existential cycle that applies to every form of the Universe as it evolves in 3 possible species: an energetic, lineal species, an informative, cyclical one or a combination of both forms that shapes a balanced ExT, spiralled form. Those 3 forms become the 3 horizons between birth and extinction of any species.
Though the arrogance of mankind conditions us to believe either in ‘total chaos’, to make man the only intelligent species (the scientific, Darwinian approach to evolution) or in ‘personal, planning Gods’ (the religious one) that care for us in order to maximize our ‘existential will’, unfortunately empirical facts, of which this book offers many cases, prove that the ‘Game of Existence’ is as intelligent as we are and it has an order indifferent to man, resumed in those 3 ‘differentiations of forms’ repeated ad infinitum in all structures, species, events, cycles and ages shaped by: A form of max. energy; a balanced form, s=t, that reproduces faster and a form of max. information: e, ei, i.
The 3 evolutionary horizons of species.
The creation of a new species takes place according to the same 3 ages of any space-time field that become the 3 horizons of any species: after conception that creates ‘a seed’ of pure information and minimal spatial energy, species go through a young age of energy growth that creates ‘big species’; a mature, reproductive age of forms in balance between its energy and information when the species maximizes its reproduction, radiating in huge numbers; and a third horizon of informative evolution when it diversifies into multiple sub-species, becoming finally extinguished, (the equivalent to the death of any organism), or creating a new top predator form, a ‘son species’ that will restart a new cycle of life.
+1: Birth: max. T. The black hole paradox (conception).
The ‘black hole’ age of any species is parallel to the informative, genetic conception of any organism born out of a ‘seed’ that packs the maximum genetic information in the minimal space. It is caused by the slight dominance of temporal information (quantic time) over spatial energy (quantic space). So a new top predator species is born with a lot of new, genetic information packed in a reduced size (Max. T=Min. E). This happens because information is processed faster in smaller spaces.
For example, a ‘logic instruction’ is resolved faster in smaller chips. It follows that tiny species with huge numbers of ‘neurons’ create quantic actions faster than slow, bigger species. And since they are highly informative, they can coordinate those quantic actions in herds that act simultaneously as a single organism. So their S-T force that defines a top predator is higher in each quantic action of space-time that the ‘slow actions’ of a big body. Thus small English boats shooting faster against big galleons defeated the Spanish Armada; a pack of wolfs kill slow reins and herds of orcas kill bigger whales. Small, intelligent top predator brains rule bigger, less informative bodies, because time dominates space, information dominates and shapes energy.
Thus men, the most informative animals, are the Earth’s top predators; black holes, which have maximum gravitational information, are the top predators of the Universe and chips rule machines.
I Horizon: Energy Age: max. E: Top Predators and Extinctions
In their youth, carbohydrates (fats), worms (planarians), echinoderms, cephalopods, fishes, amphibians, mammals and chipped machines grew into energetic, lineal or planar, big top predators
A newborn, small foetus grows very fast in size as it multiplies its cells. By homology a new species is born as a small, informative, complex being that latter grows in spatial size during its energetic youth becoming a, lineal, energetic, big top predator species, that feeds on less evolved forms.
Thus after conception, young fishes grew into big sharks of linear forms; after the polemic Homo Floresiensis invented technology the next Homo Sapiens with an extensive fossil record were big, energetic Neanderthals;the 1st big molecules of life were fat carbohydrate chains of linear form; the 1st insects acquired soon gigantic bodies in the Carboniferous; after chips were born as small machines placed in PCs and toys, the first robots they control are big tool-machines and huge weapons of mass destruction, lineal missiles and planes, that kill human beings.
II Horizon: Evolution or Age of balance and reproduction: max. Sp x Tƒ. Radiations of species.
Then, the species finds a balance between form and energy and it reproduces in massive radiations: carbohydrates gave birth to amino acids with a nitrogen, informative atom on its ‘relative Head’; sharks gave way to balanced tubular fishes; brachycephalic Neanderthals gave way to dolichocephalic Cro-Magnons that multiplied and colonized all continents; while young giant stars acquire the balanced size of yellow suns, the commonest of all stars.
III Horizon: Evolution or Age of information: Max. Tƒ: max. Evolutionary differentiation.
Species grow in height or acquire cyclical forms, as they evolve through their 2nd and 3rd horizons, improving their sensorial, informative skills: Nucleotides become the top predator life molecules, echinoderms change to cyclical forms, fishes organize their networks in the dimension of height, amphibians become round, improving its smell, saurian and mammals become biped.
The main difference between organisms and species happens in their 3rd age, due to the discontinuous nature of the individual ‘cells’ of species, which do not become extinguished unlike the tightly controlled cells of organic systems, dominated by nervous, informative systems that exhaust and warp totally their energy, till the organism collapses.
Instead species continue evolving, creating new, complex species with more information, growing in the dimension of height. So the Homo Sapiens evolves ever more complex technological tools; the nucleotide appears when it adds informative depth to the amino acid (with an informative, nitrogen ring and an energetic sugar ring); the yellow sun becomes a neutron star of higher gravitational, informative density; while insects develop a growing brain capacity and bees and ants appear.
– (±∆): Extinction Vs Evolution into super-organisms. The scales of the Universe.
Thus, organisms dominated by their informative networks, which consumes the energy of the system very fast, die sooner than species, according to a clock set by the rate at which energy is metabolised, ‘in-formed’, by their nervous system. While species, which are dominated by the individuals and the herds survive for eons with 3 basic strategies according to the ‘ternary plan’:
– Max. Sp: Creating balanced, trophic pyramids that maintain always a supply of new victims.
– S=T: Dversifying their individual forms into new species, instead of ‘degenerating’ into a warped space-time field. It is a parallel strategy to the reproduction of an organism, which in this manner survives his own death. Thus we talk of ‘son species’ that create evolutionary, genealogical trees similar to those of any organism.
However son species tend to kill-extinct the mother species, feeding on their energy. We call that fact, the Oedipus paradox. So mammals killed reptiles, men killed mammals and robots might kill human beings. While the different generations of an organism work together, creating informative networks between them that shape herds and families.
– Max. Tƒ: Species also evolve socially their individual forms into super-organisms, thanks to the creation of informative networks and languages that integrate them into a whole, bigger form, which is more powerful than the individuals of a herd.
Organisms are dominated by informative, nervous or hormonal networks that pack closely individual cells of max. information in min. space; while species extend over wider space ecosystems in which they share a min. quantity of information, as individuals of species hardly relate to each other beyond the reproductive couple or the hunting herd. And yet, both go through the same 3 ages of space-time defined by the inverse properties of the energetic youth (max.S=min.T) that defines the herd and the informative old age (Max. T=Min. Sp) which defines the organism.
Hence we consider that the creation of super-organisms is the final evolutionary stage of a herd of individuals from the same species: each individual of the herd becomes then a ‘relative cell of the body’ of the macro-organism. While the specific language of communication and information of the species becomes the relative nervous/informative network of the super-organism, as pheromones do in anthills or nervous impulses did with cells in the Pre-Cambrian ageor financial and verbal languages are doing among humans in History.
The process of creation of super-organisms, departing from individuals is the key to understand the social, hierarchical structure of the Universe. Once and again, even outside the realm of biological life, quantic species of unconnected individuals have evolved socially, first in herds that share a common energy and then in super-organisms joined by energetic and informative networks that pack together and coordinate into a ‘single present’ the quantic actions of the individual forms, shaping a new top predator being with a space-time force, sum of the force of the individual, smaller cells, with less ‘i’-nformation. In formal terms we say that organic quanta gather around energy and information networks creating a bigger individual, whose actions are the sum of the actions of all its cells: ST=∑st-1.
Thus photonic h-quanta evolved into particles; particles evolved into atoms, which evolved into molecules thanks to electromagnetic networks. Molecules evolved into cells thanks to genetic networks of information.
Cells evolved into organisms thanks to nervous and hormonal networks of information. And human organisms have evolved into civilizations thanks to verbal, informative networks. While the Universe has grown in scale thanks to gravitational information from atoms, to molecules, to planets and stars, to galaxies, to the very same Universe.
In the next line we study the inner structure of all those Quantic Spaces-Times fields organized around 3 types of ‘cellular species’ that evolution has differentiated in time, according to the previous 3±1 horizons; and then symbiosis structures in space in 3 specialized ‘organic classes and networks’ as energetic bodies, informative Heads and reproductive organs.
Spaces-Times fields of biological, physical and sociological sciences follow the ternary plan of creation. Since those 3±1 horizons of existence happen between the birth and death of any species, mapping out both for physical species, born out of the big-bang explosion of a black hole; and for biological species, since the first carbohydrate, the evolution of life from the atom to the human being.
– Extinction: Yet if species fail to achieve informative, social evolution, growing into macro-organisms, they become victims of other species that have continued their evolution. So today 90% of insects are social insects; Neanderthals became extinguished by verbal Homos and protista with limited genetic content (mitochondria) became organelles of social, eucaryotic super-cells.
All what you see is a complementary system with a body/field of energy and a smaller head/particle of information. And its morphology responds to the Universal forms of energy/lineal motion, as all bodies of biology, fields of physics and planes of mathematics do, and the universal form of information/perception/cyclical motion, as all heads, particles and cycles of geometry do.
How your head/circle that processes information and guides your planar body, which processes energy is not anything different from what any of the multiple types of superoroganisms of those topologies do in other scales. Particles of physics also move along a wave of energy of planar nature and robots have a camera-brain over a transport plane.
Moreover if in space, all General Systems are organized in the same manner, in time, as they appear and dissapear from reality they are also organized sequentially in the same manner: all systems start small, grow in size, first in:
– Youth: energy elements, mainly the body, and we call this mathematically Max. E(for the energy element) x Min I (for the informative element).
Then they acquire information till both balance, e=i, and in that balance ‘mens sana in corpore sanum’, exi=k, in quantum mechanics, we find the mature age in which species often reproduce, decoupling a new being of existence
Then we reach maturity and the being no longer increases its energy, but only its information, in its 3rd age, when it wrinkles and acquires the ‘convex topologies’ of the 3rd age, warping, imploding into itself.
And finally it dies, exploding into a relative big-bang, back into its simpler parts.
Now each superorganism that lives and dies through this cycle of life and death existence might seem from our human perspective different. Yet all of them are parallel in their morphological, ‘topological’ changes. So a species is treated in General systems sciences as a ‘loose organism’ in which each indivdual is a cell. And so as species evolve from earlier top predators (the first successful fishes being planar sharks – pure energy processors, the first robots ‘chip homoctonos’ – terminator machines, the first mammals, carnivores, and so on), then finally reach a 3rd age of maximal information (humans being the last informative mammal), they also go through 3 ages.
And in this manner general system description of those 3 ages, becomes the ‘3rd leg’ with genetics and classic Darwinian evolution to understand the meaning of life.
So we establish a basic equation that defines all systems as complementary systems of energy and information that fluctuate in space as organisms and time as cyclical beings with 3 ages:
E xI. And we can talk of a simple series of basic equations and developments that describe synoptically what those systems do.
All what exists; all entities of the Fractal Universe including human beings are systems made of two COMPLEMENTARY geometries: languages and heads of information that perceive and guide blind bodies of moving energy.
And we can recognize those complementary puzzles of nature, called in the jargon of Systems Theory, Fractal Points, by their opposite, geometrical shape and properties. Since the cycle is the form that stores more information in lesser space and the line is the fastest distance between two points.
For example, all physical species are made of lineal fields of moving energy, shaped by cyclical particles of information.
All living organisms are made of planar bodies of moving energy guided by spherical heads of information.
All Human societies are made of human citizens, ruled by politicians and priests, who command nations and civilizations with legal and ethic words.
In essence, in Systems sciences we work with two arrow/motions/informations/ forms in action, energy systems and information ssytems.
What this systems do are actions – defined in quantum physics as E x i= K, combinations of energy and information. In youth though they do more energetic actions as the body dominates. Those are actions related to one of the two arrows of ‘future time’, of change and motion in the Universe, e and i. E is fastest motion, defined in geometry by the line. So bodies and fields energy or entropy,are lineal, move fast, expand space .
Then there are particles and heads that process ‘cycles of time that carry a frequency of information and have more form.
This is what particles do in physics: gauge information. This is what your head does: accumulates information about cycles of form in motion around you and then process it into ‘mental images’ that vary those cycles and extract a final cycle-conclusion you perform. You are an absorber of cyclical information that determines your actions. And those actions tend to make you survival and are basically 4 – internal actions transformed into the external universe: you feed energy to your body, you gauge information to your mind, you reproduce both, exi, and then you organize socially at certain stages of your existence, as seminal cell, as member of a society, with other human-like you forming bigger social organisms.
So this defines the equation generator of cycles of space-time, ∑exi=st:
Where ∑ (eusocial behavior); E (energetic behavior); x (reproduction); I (informative behavior), are repeated in cycles masterminded by an informative knot-body system, which is the ‘relative constant space-time field’, st, sum of all those cycles.
And we call:
∑exi = st, the function of existence of any being.
The function defines many things in the universe:
It defines your actions of love, ∑, of feeding, e, of gauging information, i and reproducing exi, and as a result it defines externally certain space-time cycles, s, which you do and others can observe. THUS IT IS ALSO YOURSELF. Your body-head: E<=>I, in perpetual exchange of energy and information.
It is your existence indeed, and that of any other entity. And so in each time of life, you will ‘commit’ actions that will vary along the path of youth, maturity and old age.
The economic system that reproduces memes of metal, machines and lineal weapons, was first ruled by cyclical coins of gold, today converted in electronic cycles of digital information in the minds of computers…
In this manner, languages of Information create the future of all the energetic systems of reality.
All complementary systems have a limited quantity of energy and information, which they have to renew in order to survive, what determines their 4 repetitive, survival strategies of behavior or arrows of future time.
They will try to obtain more energy for their body and more information for their mind.
They will try to reproduce the form of the system in other region of space time to survive after death.
And they will associate with similar entities, forming bigger, cellular superorganisms that live longer in time and occupy wider vital spaces.
For example all physical particles can be defined by 4 quantum numbers that describe those actions among physical entities that absorb electric energy, are guided by magnetic information, decouple into self-similar particles and associate with other particles in more complex atomic and molecular societies.
All biological entities are defined as such when they show those 4 drives of existence, feeding on energy, perceiving information, reproducing into similar species and associating with other individuals of the same species in herds and superorganisms.
All what we human beings do is to feed on energy, perceive different languages of information, reproduce our children, forming families and evolve socially under the mandate of eusocial love expressed by ethic religions and constitutions with other human beings into cultures, nations, religions and civilizations.
Finally, company-mothers, the ‘free citizens’ of markets, reproduce machines that imitate and substitute humans organs of energy and information, and have become social cells of a super-organism of machines, the global stock-market.
Now, the result of the existence of two basic forms, energy and information and 4 drives of existence, Feeding, Max. E, Informin, Max. I, reproducing, E=I and evolving socially Sum (exi), creates an order in time, as species are born, go through an age of maximal feeding and growth, or youth, then find a balance between youth and form, E=I, and reproduce in its mature age, finally warping and transforming most of its energy into information in a 3rd age, after which they die.
And birth and death are the limits of those ages, in which a species ‘evolves socially’ from its first seminal cell into a superorganism and dies back.
The Paleolithic and the neo-paleolithic: 3±1 Homo ages/subspecies.
Humans evolve, as all systems of Energy and Information do, in subspecies specialized in those 2 elements.
In the graph, 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.
In human evolution a 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. 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 theform which 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.
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:
— ‘Visual, energetic, lineal, spatial cultures’, proper of the white man, with his concepts of lineal time and his passion for technological, energetic weapons.
— ‘Cyclical, informative, mongoloid cultures’, natural to Asian civilizations, with cyclical concepts of time.
— And ‘sensory, reproductive, colored cultures’, which in Africa and India developed human senses to their limits. 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, brachicephalic, 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 Dolicocephalic brain, which started as a small ‘San pygmy’, evolved into the self-similar mongoloid race. Finally, the black race, 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.
— Finally, the economic ecosystem based in metal and machines, appeared.
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.
To fully grasp why civilizations and cultures, and probably History=Mankind dies under the ‘Program of complexity’ of the Universe, we must understand the 3 ages of ‘existence’, caused by the fractal, informative arrow of future time that ‘warps energy into time’ (Einstein), evolves the morphology, the information of beings (Darwin).
Simplistic science only studies the arrow of energy and death which explodes in big-bangs the information of beings. Yet time has 2 arrows of future: increase of information, which is the arrow of super-organisms, and release of information into energy, which is the big-bang arrow of death. Because history and civilizations are super-organisms, they are guided by the arrow of information. We, living beings, wish to acquire more energy to transform it into information, and this simple program, Maximize your energy and information, ‘Grow and multiply’ in the Myths ofGenesis, is he ultimate mandate of existence of any organism of reality.
And its most important consequence is the existence of 3 ‘ages’ in life, an energetic youth (Max. E) that starts to transform that energy into information, through a classic age of reproduction and balance (E=I) between the 2 primary elements of the Universe, till we warp our energy into information, and when it is exhausted we die. Our civilizations also live those 3 ages, and as our technological systems overproduce monetary and military information and technology, nations and civilizations enter an age of economical chaos and war, that kills the culture. We are no in that age which I called in my first exhibits about the future of America, 20 years ago, the American baroque.
In the graph we see those ages for a series of super-organisms, including physical forms.
This simple law of complExity and information is therefore extremely rich in meanings, as it is sufffered by any system with networks of energy and inforamtion, not only life beings, but also systems of matter whiche volve from an energetic gas to a complex solid, with higher information, and galaxies which evolve from nebulae of stars into lack holes.
It is a law of biology that most organisms die because the nervous/informative system absorb the energy of the body-cells without returning enough of it, and its orders wrinkle and destroy the organism.
This theory was applied to Historic decay by many authors, remarkably, Vico, the founder of Sociology in his book ‘A new Science’ and Spengler, who anticipated the decay of the German culture and the American culture, around 2000… in the early 20s.
To fully grasp those decays, we shall here consider them with at a deeper, scholar level, using the science of complexity and super-organisms, studied in detail in another post of this web.
This further on, he affirmed, was the way any organism died. and so cultures and humanity would die, as the upper castes of capitalism=mechanism, evolved money and machines, overproduced it and destroyed the sheeple with it. Marx was of a similar opinion: history was doomed unless a miracle (the r=evolution of the sheeple) took over money and controlled the production of weapons. Otherwise the cycles of overproduction of weapons and money (the Kondratieff cycles described in this web) would finally reduce unemployment (the Western world), as more machines worked, and created a mass of poor proletarians (the Chinese factory workers). And this is indeed the present world.
So at the end of times, Marx predicted, the entire organism of History would be corrupted, all workers would be unemployed, machines would be the only labor, and the Am Segullah would have all the money thanks to their speculative taxes. And this is the case. Then Marx affirmed people would rebel. But this is NOT the case. The historic case is that the system merely kills in World Wars the surplus of workers (end of 29 crisis in II world war). That is, more like Spengler’s thought: once the organism of history is totally corrupted by the upper ‘neuronal astes’ that absorb all its resources, it merely dies, as it happens in Nature.
And indeed, what seems more likely is NOT the revolution of humanity against bankers and governments, the modern, complex version of tax collectors and warrior kings, but the death of mankind by weapons (black hole factories, self-reproductive bacteria, terminators) and a world of machines and black holes were life is extinguished, during the singularity Age.
Let us then consider in depth, why this happens not only in the human organism but in nature at large. It is called in complexity the theory of the 3 ages of life which in simple terms states that the Universe has 2 arrows of future: increase of energy (as in war, accidents, deaths, big-bangs and motion) and increase of information (as in fractal creation, formal creation, reproduction of form). And that life is merely the arrow of increasing information which cannot be stop because the informative cellular network constantly absorbs energy and transforms it into information in any system of the Universe. And so it seems it is doing today in history where the speculators absorb all the wealth of nations, ruin the energy lass, reduce their salaries to the iron salary of Ricardo and end up life, killing it.
– Space as systems of energy and information, organized by a ‘neuronal’ head of information and a reproductive, cellular body, which together ‘prey’ on an ecosystem from where they extract their energy.
– And in time as living organisms, which start with a huge amount of energy, consumed and transformed into information through 3 ages till the organism collapses.
This duality is the key to understand both history and economics, its temporal patterns and cycles, its inner structure and development of the facts of history. Since we can observe in historic organisms (nations and civilizations) both as:
– An spatial, organic, class structure, between the ‘informative’ castes, which invent and control the social languages of power (money, weapons and laws), and a reproductive, working class, which obeys those languages. They form the social structure that controls together a geographical environment.
– And we can dynamically study the life and death of civilizations as a result of the struggle between those 2 ’cellular groups’ and the way in which they absorb, transform and deplete the energy and resources of their geographical environment, provoking the collapse of a society, due to their exhaustion of natural energy (enviromental catastrophe), or an excessive development of the wrong, lethal information of the tree of science (crisis of overprroduction of weapons which end invariably in war and the destruction of civilizations).
Those are the two main spatial and temporal patterns that affect the life and structure of civilizations (old history) and industrial nations (modern history) studied in detail in this web.
We could say that history is organized in civilizations and nations which are social organisms, in as much as they have an organic, ternary structure (the neuronal, informative power-castes that control societies with their language of information, money, laws and weapons; the reproductive, working castes that obey, controlled by laws, money and weapons; and the energy of the system). This organic structure derives into a physiological ternary system with 3 networks:
– The environment or territory, the ‘disgested’ energy of the system; the re =productive/economic system, equivalent to the reproductive, blood system of biological organism; and the informative/nervous/cultural and legal system, the brain of the social organisms.
– As a consequence of this physiological structure, which determines the death of organisms when the selfish ‘neuronal castes’ deplete of energy the body, which collapses, we obsere also 3 ages in any historic organism; since societies accumulate information and then collapse when advances in military information bring ages of war.
This is in simple terms the dual, space-time description of the main social organizations of history and economics described in this web (civilizations, nations and company-mothers), which has important precedents in historic sciences (Aristotle, Ibn Khaldun, Vico, Spengler, Marx, Kondratieff among others), but has never been developped with a clean, scientific, biological approach, till the evolution of Complex sciences make us understand the way social organisms ’emerge’ from individual cells, through the creation of collective energetic/informative networks; how those physiological networks organize them, and the reasons of their evolution and collapse=decay=death.
In that sense if we were to reformulate in organic terms the question, today we would ask ourselves: It is the organism of history subject, as all other organic systems of the Universe, life beings and in the fractal, complex paradigm also physical systems, to the arrows of time that ‘warp energy into information’ till the organism dies?
To fully grasp this argument, which was clearly expressed by Vico and Spengler and Marx among others, in his masterpieces, ‘A Nuova Scienza’ ’The decadence of the West’ and ‘Das Kapital’, we have of course to ignore all the childish, mythic, pseudo-religious theories of economics and History derived from animetal cultures and their tribal, power trips – those manifest destinies of the human kind or the nation kind, so much promoted by the Am Segullah and the Gothic warriors, today in America. I consider if the reader has gone to this final post that I am talking to an evolved mind and so the question, objective and detached from human presumptions would be also relevant to him.
Let us then first consider the ‘theory of the 3 ages’ of all systems of energy that ‘fractalize, warp and accumulate information till they die’ and then argue in more detail the case of the Historic Super-Organism.
Indeed, the existence of a possible organic program in history derives from the strong proofs of the existence of such program for all living beings and most physical, complex, organic systems (galaxies, stars and other structures of Nature that rely in the existence of networks of energetic ‘cells’ or particles, which wrinkle war acquiring information in a 3rd age, till they have so much information and so little energy that they die).
This can be explained mathematically with fractal equations, which seem to give a deterministic outlook at the process of aging. In History it would mean that civilizations, as Vico and Spengler affirmed are obliged to decay.
Yet a deeper analysis of why those systems decay show that they decay due to the selfish absorption of energy of the informative/nervous system, which means that if Mankind could create a system in which its upper castes of informative elites that control the organism with laws and money, were not corrupted, the organism of History would not ab=use its energy and perhaps become immortal.
A FASΤ REVIEW OF ΤHE LIFE AND DEAΤH OF HUMAN CIVILIZAΤIONS AND ECONOMIC ECOSYSΤEMS.
LET US THEN SEE THE MAIN CIVILIZATIONS OF HISTORY KILLED BY ENTROPIC WARS WITH SOME MAPPINGS OF ITS FORMS AND ORGANISMS, AS THEY LIVE AND DIE THROUGH THE 800-80 YEARS CYCLES OF NATIONS AND CIVILIZATIONS:
And that is that, as all other negative elements of human societies will be deduced, induced, reproduced and evolved departing from those 3 selfish memes of metal and the idol-ogies they induced first in those cultures and now globally by the values of go(l)d, they always carried. So the answer on how the metal earth has been constructed is rather simple, embedded in the previous graphs of linguistic values.
Metal loves metal, and gives maximal price to weapons, the most perfect metal. So humans did not need much thinking to construct the aberrant world of perpetual warfare, death of life, and mechanisms in which we live. It was only needed ‘to believe in gold’, to make of gold an ex-vote or vehicle to communicate with God. And it was an immediate action, as gold is the most perfect hypnotic metal substance, which soon all humans called in different languages ‘the sweat of god’, the sun, the master of the eye. So the eye was hypnotised by gold, among the white men, with higher crossing of the visual, dolicocephalic neanderthal man. And just by pursuing gold, and subconsciously paying with it weapons, we started in a very automatic way to construct the metal-earth. It is this scary almost programmed chemical fact: Hypnotism to gold->maximal value to weapons->greed and violence infecting our mind->beginning of eviL=anti-live memes, the series of actions, we observe happening in the mountainous and coastal region of the Fertile crescent:
Against this automaton process, mankind had always the weakness of the wor(l)d, the subtle power of water, and it failled. By the time of the Roman Empire, mercenary armies of gold and iron had conquered all the human cultures of the word, both in the east and the west.
Why they existed? Of course, that I always wondered, why people like me existed, if we were not going to have a future, and the deeper answer is that there is always a probability for mankind to survive the animetal wave. It is a game of 2 futures, or else we would not exist. And of course, there is the fact that unless you get to the angst point of the prophet, who foresees the future, if you keep it small, the natural memes of the wor(l)d, of eusocial love, pleasure, life, help most humans to ‘stand’ the top of that pyramid of animetal power. When one gets to know in all depth the systems of the universe, it finds a finality but also a penchant for the minimal pain possible at each phase – so death is fast, life is long, but both are a zero sum. So the Universe let us put it this way is perfect within its restrictions. On that view the astounding imperfection of animetals responds to a process of death and corruption of life, which we must see on terms of a 3 billion years wave, in which man kills life in a mere 5000 years since the arrival of bronze, 400 since the arrival of companies of gunboats – a very fast, painless death if you are to living precisely at that point when the 3 billion long life of carbon-organisms comes to an end.
In the next graph of this full analysis of both the economic ecosystem and its opposed wave of historic civilisations, which introduces also the 3 ages of life and death of those civilisations and its collective artistic mind, we can see a resume of both waves as the top wave of machines substitutes and extinguishes the lower wave, during the modern age of history, once professional companies accelerated the vortex of evolution of machines to 80 years:
That mankind would dedicate all his life to the reproduction of machines as a mean to accumulate wealth had never occurred to mankind. After all metal was the antitruth of mankind, and humans were not that stupid, not to recognize the extinctive side effects of ‘vile metal’. But when the scientific method, and Go[l]d religions started to use abstract numbers of humans as entities without parts, without verbal content, the erasing of verbal truths, facilitated by the metal-press, that natural knowledge was erased among the most primitive cultures of the age [North-Western cultures, barely civilized a few centuries before]. And so soon by erasing of verbal minds, antitruths of Go[l]d behavior, and sheer weapons force Holland was driven by a company which reproduced gunboats to make money. And so it was latter England, a nation which increased his empire, because his companies were reproducing gunboats, that exported colonists, weapons and other ‘products’, in order to accumulate wealth.
Again that concept was translated to America, where companies of cotton, slaves, gunboats and tea trade, became the real organism of power, when the nation became independent. Lobbyism was the tool of that power, expressed in contract laws written by lawyers [verbal rhetoricians of the natural law].The independence war was paid and organized by company lawyers, who made the goal of America the goal of his companies, beyond the defeated dreams of farmers and utopians.
The politics of America are ever since the business of American companies and his lawyers.
Now in those graphs, taken from my exhibit on the river of the 7 cultures of mankind which i studied through both its human, artistic and ethic memes and its animetal memes, in a huge exhibit, which unfortunately did not have much following among curators (-; we can see many elements of the Anglo-American culture, as it crosses the 800-80 years discontinuums of life and death of civilisations, since in true form, the anglo-american cultures are the daughter cultures of the cananean go(l)d culture of judaism, expanded to the Northern-European germanic and British cultures after reformation. So there is nothing new in the modern capitalist culture of America.
What was new or rather a renewal in America as in Europe was the French and American enlightened r=evolution of the humanist greek-latin-european culture that made of man the measure of all things, to which this writer belongs. It is the welfare humanist non-racist, artistic, scientific ethic social culture, which should have ruled the world if we wanted to survive, but unfortunately was defeated from outside and inside by the go(l)d cultures and its BUG memes, with the greedy-you meme on top, a mass of ‘lonely people’, the selfish, brutish, easy-manipulated middle class, further divided by the ‘germ-violent’ free-weapons meme, which put together create the aberration that has become America, and under its globalised process mankind a large.
In that regard, there is very little left of the final part of the previous graph, the birth of America, as the DREAM OF A PERFECΤ WORLD BASED IN ΤHE IDEALS OF HUMANISM SINCE ALL the european and American r=evolutions that have tried to control greed, violence and selfish animetal memes have failed.
What is of an enormous beauty on those series, extended to all other cultures in the different sections of this blog, is the organic nature of all those cultures, which always go through 3 ages of ‘collective subconscious life’ between the birth and the extinction by war of each of those life-cycles of civilisations, as it is indeed the most clear proof of the organic nature of societies. All the artists of each of the 3 ages of the life of those cultures do indeed follow the 3 ages of life from an epic, dramatic, young, optimistic first age (paralleled in the attitude of the animetals towards their new discovered machines), to a maximal age of mature enjoyment of life, classic art, relaxed humanism and abundance, when the wave of epic war recedes – the last one the 70s in America; finally decaying in a 3rd age of excessive technological information that degrades society and finally becomes top predator weapons, which kill in wars the whole society.
American in that sense as its brother culture Europe has always been a fight between the biblical culture and the enlightened rational culture. And it is a bad sign of the zeitgeist of this age, that we, the people of the european enlightened culture and its equivalent Americans live now isolated, censored and called ‘piigs’. Yes, Pacific, Intelligent Generous Memes, the pig culture, which the BUG culture so much abhor to the point that a germ banister, called us with this insult – we might say germs only eat pork, dead pigs after killing us, enlightened europe and yous, do not eat at all, segregate pigs and their tasty food.
But I don’t want to ab=use my verbal mastery as a man of the wor(l)d, and insult too much those who kill us and commit suicide with their technological weapons at the end of those cycles. What can I say, maybe if they would taste the wonderful creamy flavours of Spanish ‘Jamon’, they would enjoy life more, maybe if they learned to make love besides doing so much wars and sports, as the Aristophanes said, they wouldn’t kill the wor(l)d.
Obviously in America, the predation of mankind by metal is never explained. It is taboo. Again only artists, word people and philosophers see the entire situation. Politicians, warriors and traders who live on companies salaries and bribes, have a messianic, dramatic, simple optimist pov on the nature of companies, that exclude all criticism. A pov spread through the control of means of communication to most of humanity: To reproduce and evolve machines is good, because it makes Go[l]d. Or in economical terms: ∆MV=∆Tp. Modern men go no further, learn no Bio-Economics: they accept the Metal-Postulate of Human extinction as a truth. He works for it like Boxer the Animal of the Orwellian farm worked for the pigs that sold his meat when he was obsolete. As machines substitute human workers and throw them out in the cold, the Boxers of the scientific method, fall, without verbal information on the nature of his tragedy.
So we have to conclude that the true organ of power, the cre[dit]ator of America and the world civilization [creation=creditation], is the company, reproducer of machines. This gives origin to the present American paradox – the extinction of the human Protestant American culture and all world cultures, despite the visible power of Americans. Why their institutions and old traditions are being extinct, if they control the world? The answer is obvious: Americans do not control the world, they belong to the system of metal-evolution that controls them. They are programmed by scientific thought which evolves to the rhythm of technology, not of human wishes, goods and needs. The Human American culture and all other human world cultures are today only a mask for the real aim of modern stockracies which is to evolve the product. So as companies become overpowerful, the cultural mask falls, and man becomes merely a tester=consumer and reproducer of machines. And all his other human rituals and values are considered obsolete and extinct.
In the graph, we see the beginning of the Industria r=evolution, when the mechanocene started its global expansion, the 3 ages of its machines, the parallel evolution of the mind of mankind expressed in its art, and its final phase, in the military age of European colonial empires and civil wars, fought with trains. As we treat extensively all those themes in different parts of the blog we shall focus on the last age that followed the previous one, the American age.
In the next graph we observe the American age of the go(l)d culture on top of the Earth, building systematically the world of machines and its likely future outcome:
The American civilization, daughter culture of the Anglo-Saxon civilization that created it is the most clear example of that extinctive process of human cultural elements. Why we concentrate in the American civilization? The answer is that the American civilization is now the world civilization, expanded globally by its means of communication, that have finally achieved the social evolutive aim of all cultures: its expansion at global level. And yet the paradox is that such union has been done through informative metal [money] not through informative human words. And so it is in favor of metal-species not of human wor[l]ds and human species. All knowledge has a frame of reference. Money’s reference is metal-evolution.
In a selfish Universe, ruled by Darwinian behavior, and social behavior, each relative ‘Copernican center’ wants to expand to all others, and colonize and reproduce in all other regions of vital space. So happens to men which expand their ideas and instruments which expand its metal-forms. And that fight between human ideas and metalforms structures the events of History. Finally a metal culture seems to have won.
At the end of the II millennium, a culture has triumphed over the others, becoming the world culture. That culture is the American culture, daughter of the English culture, daughter of the Protestant-Calvinist culture born in Holland in the XVI C. Yet – and that is the paradox of America -once the American culture has achieved global power, it turns out that it is not the human component but the metallic component, the weapons, money and instrumental systems of that culture, what really has become global; while even the American, Protestant culture that carried those instruments is being dissolved, and disappears…
America appears on such view, integrated within the evolution of Human History and cultures, as the final dissolving pot of mankind, where all human cultures merge, creating a Global culture more concerned with the evolution of machines than the evolution of mankind.
In America all cultures come together, and mutate to adapt themselves to the civilization of companies and machines. To the new non-human culture of machines, that extincts ‘America’ proper, still a human name.
In that regard, America is and has been an experiment of destroying all the life memes of the 7 cultures of the world, grind into a melting pot, where the only language and values are go(l)d, hence with the oldest go(l)d culture on top, with the maximal power of the ‘you’ meme in control of Wall Street and Evilwood, that is of all the information machines of the nation.
Below it a mass of equalised humans of all cultures, erased in their minds by the selfish, greedy, violent memes of the BUG culture – hence without any capacity to form a social mass able to r=evolve against the dictatorship of corporations, or propose solutions and alternatives to the matrix of fictions of evilwood and debt slavery to wall street, which is their existential role on the metal-earth, as long as a machine does not replace them at work, and hence become obsolete as reproducers and consumers=vitalizers of its machines. At that point when an american is of no use to the metal-earth as reproducer and vitalizer=consumer of machines, he will be tagged by wall street as expendable, with no credit, thrown to the chaos=freedom of a world where it is no longer $elected, and made guilty as a looser, alien, enemy, inferior human being.
So if he is lucky he will be kept alive with trash food and the mind programmed to hate those who are even in a worst situation, through the propaganda machines of evilwood.
But of course, the doctors of history, politicians and economists could stop this biological radiation that is poised to extinguish mankind.
Since a social super organism is a system half way between a biological organism and an evolutionary species – meaning it is not so deterministic as a biological organism. And humans can as long as the robotic and chip radiation and its automated company-mothers do not acquire self-reproductivity (freedom and consciousness is quite irrelevant in evolution), redesign scientifically the world and manage the chip ‘radiation’.
(1) We can in that regard consider 2 generator equations for the synchronic and diachronic views of the three timespace arrows:
Time view: Ps>ST>Ft (PaSt> preSenT>FuTure).
SP:Spatial-Entropic limbs/fields, as S is the mathematical symbol for both >TS: iterative body-wave > Temporal inFormative heads. For simplicity we shall use Spe-entropy/past/space, Tiƒ (future information) and ST
