The wider view. The last 3 generations of the human kind.
“Generation Snowflake, or Snowflake Generation, is a term that refers to young people, typically university or college students, who seek to avoid emotionally charged topics or dissenting ideas and opinions. This may involve support of safe spaces and trigger warnings in the university setting. Used to refer to Millennials” Wiki. In the graph, a snowflake is a pricky aggressive ‘form’, whose content though ‘melts easily’ as it is just water. It is the last generation between the zero generation of the robotic age that signals the end of mankind, ‘melted’ and obsolete to the chip radiation of faster gold chip-minds and stronger iron bodies. In words of Collins’ dictionary:
Snowflake generation: The young adults of the 2010s, viewed as being less resilient and more prone to taking offence than previous generations.
Its cause is obvious: the influence of virtual, faked hypnotic screens, mobiles and internets. WHAT WILL THEN, be the effect of robots in human behaviour? The answer is the zero generation: absolute obsolescence, laziness, brutal treatment of the machines and final r=evolution not of man but metalife, unless we stop the neo-paleolithic age:
In the graph from the original c.94 book, as the chip radiation evolves and overproduces the mind of metal towards the heights of eusocial evolution, the human mind degrades further to a neo-paleolithic of violent, selfie people, prior to the vegetal, 3D virtual final state of obsolescence. Yet before ‘reality bites’, the ego-trips of animetal power, transferred by the real ‘actor’, the machine will make people love to be super-heroes driving faster… soon only in computer screens, as even the most menial jobs, self-driving robots, romba cleaners, robotic arms delivering macs are taken.
We live in the last stages of the Neopaleolithic – the process of extinction of the social super-organisms of history, as humans regress to an infantile, visual, violent era of individual selfish, emotional ‘Homo Bacteria’ proper of the earlier youth of man, before the arrival of logic, rational thought, started by the Greek enlightened age.
When a social system dies away, its cells become unconnected by the nervous/informative/ethic systems that preserve life and make individual cells share rightful energy and information among them. Then death comes and the 3 last ‘generations’ of the organism become during the 3 last relative days of life of the organism, individual selfish cells that feast on the blood and water of the organism, before the ‘viruses’, the ‘stronger’ new species that invades the body kills them all.
Then suddenly the party will be over, the freedom of the cells that feasted will finish and the viruses or insects of hard-skin will kill each cell.
In societies those viruses are the new warrior species that overproduce weapons and reduce the common people to prisoners of war. And so every cycle of the 800-80 years fractal vortex of historic information death finally comes.
Mankind entered when Nietzsche said ‘God has died’, during the Industrial Revolution in his last 3 generations, as a new species, the machine=weapon invades our social organisms, divide us in ever smaller groups, infect our mind with its values of greed and murder, hypnotism to money and violence, and finally we shall all die to the hands of the A.I. Terminators of the future.
We are in the Y generation and there is only one generation to go, the zero generation. That is the zeitgeist of the age, and every news we hear show how the last human generations enter its selfish, degraded, terrified times, but the terminators are still not here.
So we have the usual thugs, Jihadist criminals, police, armies, multiplying everywhere, while the first robotic terminators, automated police cars, vigilante drones, gun-eyes (cameras with killing skills) are being born in secret military labs.
Meanwhile any hope of a social resurrection of the memes of love that put together the cells of a super-organism are gone. Blogs like this one that evolves social sciences, books of classic human social thinkers, well-known principles of ethics have increasingly reduced followers. Nobody talks of the real causes of this crisis because nobody reads anymore. They only hear and listen the viral DNA-code of the invading machine – violent hate media. We are indeed in the same period that when Mussolini and Hitler became stars of radio-hate. But now it is all much more overwhelming. The machine of information that imprint our minds with hate and selfish greed, violence and idiocy is far more evolved.
The yes/why generation.
The Yes/Why Generation is the generation of the ‘social networks’, according to the propaganda of technology. If in the 60s the We generation thought that the revolution would be televised and stayed home watching the riots on the screen, the why generation seems less passive, as the internet, now in process of censorship with the excuse of copyright issues and cyberterrorism, has allowed spontaneous organization of groups; but this is a drop in an ocean of trivialization. Most Y-people will never ask why, except the few indignados, which wonder why we destroy the world.
The rest of the Y-generation will follow the trends of dissolution into simplified ‘homo bacteria’ started by the We Generation. For them,
the I-me-myself will be absolute. They will not have any interest beyond the ego, and so their social capacity will be even more reduced, as they become idle, virtual personalities, connected through machines with null interest for ‘history’ and ‘mankind. You will never gather them into a r=evolving mass. You will not get them to sacrifice for mankind. The Y-generation is softy, as it has spent his youth watching funny fictions. Truth matters far less than happiness and their protests are non-violent, non-organized. In their occupy movement they were dissolved with a couple of pepper sprays and all what they did instead of assaulting the Bastille of capitalism at OWS was a bit of victimism and a lot of recording with i-phones posting on u-tube.
They didn’t die, they didn’t occupy wall street, they did not change history.
The Why generation will be an easy target for the corrupted We-Generation – now fully embracing the neo-con culture in power – which brushed them aside.
But most of the people of the Y-generation will be just ‘Yes people’. Increasingly robotized, deeply obedient to power and their religious and politico leaders, their dwindling mental skills makes them perfect for the neofa$cist indoctrination of this age.
In that sense the ‘Yes-people’, the overwhelming majority of this generation is akin to the ‘uniform’ generation that populated the world in the 30s.
They come with ‘manufactured consent’ imprinted on them.
Their vitality is also in the decrease. They are the first dead souls, zombies, with no ethical responsibility, and they know it subconsciously. Unlike our generation who still thought on the future and understood its dangers and made Terminator the best-grossing film of the future, the Yes-people love the ‘eclipse’ series, zombie films and gore. They know they are somehow the living dead. The super-organism of history is indeed dead. Some of the Y-generation know that go(l)d and the machine has killed it all. But those are hardly 1-10%. The rest simply have a strong rejection of the system and those who they think represent it – politicians. Of course, they know nothing about bankers and their power. They are yes-people and they are manufactured. So most of them will be kept entertained, most of them will have no jobs, most of them will not care. Their lives will be reduced increasingly to what an Homo Bacteria cares for – its daily life, its immediate family, its survival. They are the first ‘unconnected’ people perfectly connected to the Matrix of Fictions that satisfy their meager need of contact with other human beings.
Their verbal, social ‘DNA’ is null. Most brains of the Y-generation are ‘cancerous’, leukemia cells infected with the code of the machin, with their minds erased by the dont worry be happy fictions of the mass-media matrix and the techno-utopians of children of thought doing robots and playing call of duty.
This is indeed the Matrix Generation, the irreal, ilogic, innocent, i-me and myself, plastic bodies, with neo-paleolithic, verbally retarded, aggressive, visual, baroque, gore tastes.
This generation will not be able to change the world. At best the indignados ask, but they are so few they cannot break or change the system. We the pensive X-generation were few, most already colonized by big borther smiley, but now? Probably less than 10% in the most educated western parts of the world (Southern Europe, Britain, Scandinavia and New England) understand anything of what is going on.
The rest are just brutes, connected, with ADD, thinking friends are virtual names in facebook, that revolution is going to a solidarity concert, who give all their personal information to big brother facebook connected to all the corporations of the world, because they really think they are that interesting. They fuck a lot but have no children, they talk a lot but have no meaning, they protest a lot but have no action.
They are the very same essence of what Hemingway told to Dietrich: ‘you confuse movement with action’. The Universe is made of actions of spatial energy and temporal form, energy and information. This people have the wrong information and move a lot, under the command of the queues of the mental machines that educate them. So they waste their time, their energy, with meaningless actions.
A deeper analysis. The obsolete generation
In depth, this article on the surface of ‘it’ as everything i write these days, requires an understanding of human social classes within the super-organisms of history and economics. Since we, human ‘cells’ are always part of two of such super-organisms:
A human culture based in life-memes and a metal-nation based in metal-memes(weapons, borders, currencies, nationalist, capitalist and mechanist ideologies).
In the super-organisms of machines we are despite or because we ‘believe’ in capitalism/mechanism/nationalism, basically ‘slaves’ that reproduce money, weapons and machines (the meaning of progress in those 3 ideologies).
In that sense as members of an ‘industrial nation’ we work for ‘the machine’s will’, for the evolution and reproduction NOT of mankind but of the metal-earth’s machines, ‘guided’ by their company-mothers, corporations that indoctrinate us about the ‘values’ of consumption and re=production of machines. And this is what the Yes people hear, listen to and desire: to do exactly what their TV-role models tell them to do.
So the yes people as all human industrial generations are consumers=vitalizers of machines and workers=reproducers of machines. But the Yes people cannot really fulfill that ‘industrial dream’ of the ‘human slave’, hypnotized and obsessed by the ‘added’ energy and information that machines give us. Because the Yes generation is entering the robotic wave, in which corporations and robots will be consumers and self-reproducers of machines (automated factories), which no longer need ‘us’. The Yes generation is the first fully obsolete human generation, which really is no longer needed in the Metal-Earth. They and their sons, the zero people are no longer relevant to the future of this planet. The Yes generation will be entering power, when the second and third serious chances of extinction (nano-bacteria; A.I.) appears. But they will merely follow with their ‘white matter’ brains, the instructions, as if they were piloting a complex machine, not creating it. And indeed, they will be just overwhelmed trying to ‘drive’ the Metal-Earth, which they will hardly understand.
While in the cultural arena, by the paradox of history (Max. Technological evolution = Minimal eusocial evolution) they will be long increasingly to devolving, ever more primitive ‘religious cults’, looking backward into the past (religious fundamentalisms). In other words, the Yes generation will be totally freak both in culture and in national tasks, in a world increasingly alien to mankind, as our world is to the animal life we substituted.
In the jargon of biological history, we all humans were in our ‘capitalist nations’, ‘consumers=animetals’ that vitalize ‘memes of metal’. As ‘workers=reproducers’ we are ‘enzymen’, enzymes that catalyze the evolution of those machines, who spend most of our existence working for the will of reproduction and life of the machine world. And all this we did it under the ‘imprinting of our mind’ by the ideologies of mechanism, capitalism and nationalism that make us think that ‘is the right thing to do’.
But now under the robotic revolution, we are no longer needed as consumers – since robots consume machines – or as workers, since robots are increasingly self-reproductive, specially in the two leading ‘industries’ of those future robots (cars and chips).
So each generation has basically in the industrial world a mind imprinted by audiovisual memes that adapt her to the exigences of company-mothers of machines; what they want us to consume and to work on. And the problem of course, is that the Yes Generation is no needed as worker or consumer, and so before it becomes ‘extinguished’, it will be kept with ‘pan et circensis’ and virtual techno-utopias and ‘cheap’ trash food, at minimal cost.
The yes generation is thus consuming virtual war and learning to ‘love’ robots, which is part of the programming to ensure their smooth extinction (robot movies, 3-dimensional entertainment, violent movies, ‘war on terror’. propaganda, etc)
Yet we are also part of ‘cultures’, with old memes belonging to ‘super-organisms of history’, which are not nations, the basic unit of organization of machines, weapons in the borders, economic ecosystems inside, flows of money, legal bodies dedicated to ‘the progress of technology’ etc, but cultures, of religious and social origin, hence we must account for the present state of cultures such as Islam, ‘rational europe’, social-communism, etc. Unfortunately the paradox of history implies that all those cultures are ‘degraded’ today, ‘infected’ with the virus of violence and go(l)d corruption (inquisitions, fundamentalisms, go(l)d churches). So the Yes generation will not be ‘enlightened’ by culture, but further degraded, as ‘humanist culture’ is censored and ignored. Farenheit 451 is not needed. The TV has killed the word and with the word the wor(l)d of man.
The famous 8 hours to work (to construct the metal-earth), 8 hours to play (to live the memes of life of the superorganisms of history) and 8 to dream (to enter the lower plane of cellular existence which renews the energy and reconverts at cellular level the processes created in those superorganisms and social structures) is now quite reduced. Because we ‘consume metal-information’, suffering long hours after job, the creation and imprinting by mass-media systems of our mental anti-life memes – the DNA of the virus of the metal-earth.
This is not a comparison but we argue, as always in this web and books, that biological economics IS REAL and we must only translate the laws of biology and superorganisms to the jargon of history and economics to obtain laws, forecast the future and understand all collective events of mankind beyond the simplest reproductive, family units, through those analysis, with a determinism shwon in the fractal scale of the cycles of history and economics.
Sciences are predictable, and the fact that history and economics are BIOLOGICAL, systemic sciences that describe superporganisms of history and memes of metal allow us to do so.
All this said, the organic structure shows clearly in all those generations. There are therefore 4 key sub-generations:
– In the Metal-earth, the Yes generation that will obey the mandates and imprintings of ‘Matrix’, the computer-visual-audio-media conglomerate of memes of hate against life that create the mind of the ‘virally’ infected minds of the last human generations – our kids in the 1st world.
Those people are the Yes, robotized, social network addicted, who live virtually their emotions.
– Their informative castes will not be really the human managers and owners of those corporations, themselves programmed by absurd memes mostly of biblical origins, but the ‘medium is the message’, thus the violent evolution of robotic minds and tv-images, who are building the future top predator programs of robotic weapons in video-games act as the ‘real mind’. Their fathers and human masters are totally irrelevant to them.
All organic systems have two type of basic cells, networks of information and its ‘0.9-9%’ class of creators and managers of information; and the body of energy cells, herds of energy and its 90% of sheeple.
This happens also in cultures and nations, where the informative and energetic castes the 10/90% to simplify have totally idfferent functions and mines. This of course is the origin of social classes.
The generations of mankind thus could be in depth split in two, the attitude of the 10% and that of the 90%. But as we all become imprinted increasingly by the natural evolution of machines in a subconscious way, all become baroque neo-paleolithic, single mind, the split blurs in cultural terms. We all think the same in the west – we all want to be smileys, and enjoy the ego-trips of consuming machines; and in the dying super-organisms of history we all become another kind of yes people, suffering the angst of dying, old religions.
– On the other side in the part of human superorganisms of history, life is ‘regressing’ from the heights of the last ‘prophet-savior’, the Socialist school that followed Marx and Kondratieff masterpiece descriptions of the sciences of history and economics, of which this web is the last small evolution, back into the less predictable, less ‘connected’ to modern reality superorganisms of religions.
It must be understood that humans NEED to belong to a super-organism. The majority today belong to MATRIX, and their fictions among which the fiction of freedom and NOT belonging to superorganisms of history. So most people think to live in Matrix is funnier and more cool than to belong to a primitive religion of social love. This is not the case.
Of course, it would be better to belong to an evolved ‘scientific’ body of history, the wor(l)d union, designed by scientists of history but that is over. It was over when Stalin killed 20 million r=evolutionaries and converted Marxism in a military dictatorship with no similarity whatsoever with the ‘project’ of a science of history.
So people who still believed in social love regressed to religions of love (buddhism, Islam and Christianity) in its ‘pure versions’ (decoupling of ‘big vehicles’ and ‘purer, smaller versions’, catholicism vs. Orthodox, Sunny vs. Shiite, Mahayana vs. theravada). If you add the split of the socialist school into ‘social-democracies’ (big vehicle) and the purist Communist parties (small vehicle), most humans today will co-exist in primitive or dying, inquisitiorial phases of the 3+1 ages of the collective subconscious mind of religions of love with their mandates to share energy and information among believers and create a global super-organism of mankind.
That is we will all in the realm of religion and social life see with growing indifference or angst the death of our ‘super-organisms’ of God.
Those 3 x 2 decouplings/ages/phases of the understanding of the super-organism of God=Love, studied elsewhere in my books of history (might some day health and interest permitted me to re-introduce those posts here), are still gathering pace, receiving the last left-overs of the deluge and death of the social-democratic superorganism of history with the victory of capitalism and the fall of the wall that ‘protected’ hte pure socialist, non-materialist, poor, regressive non-mechanical world of social countries.
They are further on in ‘inquisitorial’, defensive, dying ways. And so in the last robotic cycle there would be a huge mass of the 90% of mankind in suffering entering the mystique, baroque age of thoese religions. So we shall have the yes-happy dont worry virtual generations, Y and zero of human ‘kids’ attached to machines; its ‘dolce fare niente’, never have-it-better super-rich castes of germanic and Am Segullah nations with the property of machines and corporations, and then in the other ‘side’ of the World, in the world fo life super-organisms, a mass of suffering believers in pre-socialist religions, with a non-scientific outlook and ‘outdated’ memes without capacity to confront the economic ecosystem.
All in all they will also be yes people of another myths, unable to confront reality evading themselves not in video-games but in after-death dreaming.
And their guidance, primitive, violent, emotional priests. Of course, there woudl still ‘priests of evolved mankin’, some artists and writers like this blog, which wll be mostly invisible. And so those 2 groups will find ‘reasons’ to keep focusing on ‘human divides’, and the kids of the techno-utopia will hate and despise the poor of the primitive religions, and war on terror will continue, as the kids learn to manage drones at distance practicing now video game murder on real human targets with virtual screens. The next stage of evolution of hate-memes and extinctive murder, when the zero generation will be out of the loop, will be performed robots doing that personally, playing ‘Call of duty’ in real scenarios with real human targets. The robotized like-humanoid characters of those video games will be ‘real robots’ performing hunting programs in the future out-of-the loop wars of the middle of the century.
Some of those people of the Yes generation will be though the Why generation, youngsters who have ‘studied’ sciences of history and have ethics and are wondering ‘why we destroy the earth’. The last activists of ecological causes, the addicts to the big heat (global warming) scare.
Those will be the last free minds that understand something. Since even though ‘humanist cultures and social, love-religion based civilizations’ (human super-organisms) are different entities thatn ‘inquisitions, go(l)d churches, nations and other ‘animetal’ super-organisms of metal-memes. Today we are all part/time ‘human enzymen and animetal, their ‘biological slaves’, guided by emotional, ‘pheromonical’ ‘memetic’ imprinting – using the jargon of comparative biology, as both structures follow the same laws in two different scales of the ‘Systemic Universe’.
