nt. As always it must be understood that the influence of machines can be tamed by ethics, intelligence and education, so what we say of each generation doesn’t apply to all humans. Further on all humans do have its biological drives of life, which makes them naturally humane, from social love and reproduction – family values, to verbal ethics and love of human senses. This said, we are commenting on the ‘other side’ of each of our human generations, submitted to the bias and deformation of its personality by the machines that substitute their mental or body skills, atrophy and deforming their natural form of being human. So while each of those posts on generations of the Metal-mind age might seem ‘overstretched’, it is within the limits aforementioned quite accurate in those biased, devolving processes, which affect mostly to the mass or body-middle class of mankind, as the elite paradoxically – since its companies impose the manufacturing of brains – can survive with better education: i.e. silicon valley entrepenurs routinely forbid their kids to become addict to virtual screens, as ‘they know what they do’… British imperial elite educated its people in art and human senses dominate the leisure class owners of corporations.
If we were though to resume what is going on with the future generations of mankind, a word will resume it all: REDUCTIONISM. Humans in the virtual age are reducing its thoughts, its actions, its chances as machines and virtual screen substitute its skills. The ¥-vidi, credo ergo sum generation of millennial are the first clear evidence of this global trend, with its reduction of the whole social human experience to the individual, with its visual ‘beliefs’ and love of violence and immediate rewards, with its ‘inquisitorial models of reality’ based in the massive reduction of wording not even written anymore in computer pcs, but in smallish virtual texting screens, which make their thoughts become ‘reduced to swallow’ queues obtained from their ‘visual wanting’, and ultimately its reduction of the 5 dimensional Universe in which we are immersed, to the 3D virtual screens (2D with motion) in which ‘happiness’ obliterates truth and virtual friends have no problems always telling your ‘amore gratis’ how wonderful you are.
So the ultimate reduction is to an ego, of infantile, cosmic proportions that cannot stand any pain and returns to the screen to the virtual world in which he is programmed, soon consuming marihuana, in a mode similar to that of data in matrix, happily vegetating like a fixed plant waiting for judgement day.
The body though will become ever more visual and gorgeous, californium model – feelings as shallow as the skin and the muscle. Any criticism or attempt to grow beyond the baby mind exploded back in tantrums, fully unaware that he is being programmed by informative machines and its company-mothers, rejecting ultimately all systems that are human, from politicians to 3rd world people, to flesh and sex… Witness the puritan rejection of the female body and its attraction to man – we shall display weapons and big roaring cars but not girls and soon not drivers as robocars will drive faster.
The systemic elimination of humans from body and mental jobs to keep them in a vegetative low cost state is now well under work, what for? You might ask… For the capitalist 0.002% of owners of corporations, our ‘democratic stock rats’ to keep piling billions in unused accounts as a prove of being chosen of go(l)d… Because they who hold the system together with their systemic corruption of politics and hate media memes, are also replaceable, in fact they were never of a positive use, below zero in usefulness for mankind pure parasites…. whose only role is to manufacture worthless digital numbers and money and manufacture the collective mind of mankind to acquiescence.
The visual selfie: massive data allows individual programming of human egos.
So let us consider the ‘visual generation’ or millennial born in the age of internet, whose brain becomes more passive, more. virtual, its emotions and selfie ego-trips more ‘individualistic’ as the internet provides now ‘propaganda’ tailored to each people’s taste, giving them a sense of special entitlement as now the capacity of chips to process information has grown so much that it can ‘process and manufacture’ each human brain, individually.
The ¥-visual, yes generation is a generation of believers, because of the immediate, instinctive, ‘animal nature’ of direct visual thought. In other posts and our web on ‘general systems’ we study the syntax of mind languages, and concluded that the temporal, verbal, probabilistic nature of wor(l)ds gave birth to the rational humans.
This is what we are loosing so fast that it is impressive how our sons, the millennials, have become a completely different mind to that of the rational, ‘cogito ergo sum’ verbal people.
As such we cannot longer talk of ‘freedom of the mind’, among believers, in a trend which I spotted in my youth in America, when the “Californio” first appeared to me as the man of the future, visual, simple, seeking immediate reward, body oriented, all motion, no reflection; which would make it ever more dependent on the chipped machines that thought for him – a selfie childish mankind with no foresight or capacity to understand rationally the future, all emotions, violence and hypnotism. As such the visual age achieve the final ‘animal gold hypnotism’ that started the decadence of the species capacity to evolve socially through words into a higher super organism, as the machine achieves this higher scale of organization:In the graph from the original c.94 book,bio-history, the first ‘, 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.
the neo-paleolithic is a pre-verbal age, so our millennial of the visual ¥-Generation are as its name indicates non-verbal, beyond simple twits.
And its knee-jerk reaction are similar to that of children and animals, mostly aggressive… As its first representatives take power, we see thus new generations of far more callous, simple, repetitive memes and the world becomes ever more brutal. OF course they still use words but cannot do more than a twitter thought.
You call the ¥-non verbal thinking – only verbal memorising as ‘credo’ the first and last ages of youth and devolution of a language, which like life goes under in reverse way to the youth, as you have the first teeth and loose the first teeth when you enter old age.
Humans are loosing their mind teeths, their verbal skills, so r=evolution no longer seems possible as it cannot even be understood.
Virtual minds of visual beliefs with no verbal reasoning.
but at least the Paleolithic man was real – he was a hunter and his passion for body-motions had a meaning. Today the neopaelolithic generation is virtual, and its selfie limb-oriented heroes are ‘kids playing meaningless’ games or pretending ego-trips in virtual screens. So what they belief is pure idological trash introduced in their minds by virtual screens, which makes them belief in all kind of technoutopias, or fictions with no relationship with reality.
the way such minds work is vidi credo ergo sum in as much as they need first to see. THEN when, they talk they repeat what they see but not in reality but in virtual screens. They do not reason with their logic mind deep trees of logic thought that INCLUDE THE CAUSALITY OF TIME cycles. That is why they are also lineal, markowian ‘memoriless’ minds in history and cannot even grasp the cyclical theories of this book.
They are also unable to see the ‘connections’ which are neither visual of invisible le information that form superorganisms.
So they are dog-eat-dog people with no capacity to organize against the networks of metal-communicators that imprint and manufacture simultaneously their brains.
Causality and ambiguity are the great virtues of verbal temporal games of logic existential creation in which we evaluate different paths of future with the ambiguity of the fuzzy logic of subjective languages as the mind’s grammar of verbal thought allows different choices.
But images are absolute truths that impact directly the mind and the heart as instinctive genes do in lower emotional, instinctive animals.
So what we lost is the logic, causal process of designing a future with the depth of a verbal tree and its ‘plural subjects’, which become Is in visual thought. In verbal thought we can organize social groups and that was the great advantage over the Paleolithic lonely Neanderthal:
Social subjects < Plurality of verbs-actions determining possible paths and causal relationships between the I-subject and the object it uses…
established them freedom of choices and social organization. All that becomes lost and substituted by protocols of fixed action, and beliefs and action by image-repetition of memes, which is the plague of the ‘instinctive knee-jerk’ reactions of the millennial people.
This they consider now essential: to believe, to choose magically among beliefs, without realizing truth is not belief, as the universe is logic and probabilistic and based in causal reasoning.
The massive revivalism of primitive beliefs and idologies, mostly conservative, and from the remote past, of non-free people (religions, nationalisms) which WERE NOT SO LONG AGO RIGHTLY CONSIDERED JAILS OF THE MIND, and now are cheered with pride even till death, shows truly that degree of degradation. As those beliefs are given by metal-communicators, the collective manufacturing explain why people today are so much alike, so conservative, so perfectly programmed, and why a new fascist age with visual screens is on the making:
When we talk we motivATe ourselves to act with a verb, we thought, which depending on which verb we talk gives us different outcomes, but all related to our inner projects or our social ones. But now our beliefs come from simultaneous networks that program us. And as most of those messages are hate messages to promote the different cycles of lonely consumption of goods, or belli Nervi pecunia infinita maximal profits of weapons and consumption of hate memes, the result is THE AGE OF ENTROPY AND DEATH of all human structures we live in.
The credo ergo sum so is subconscious not really verbal, conscious, as the image imposes a single determined behaviour, plugged into the lower hypothalamus level.
The last generation of mankind are thus visual and can be divided into two credo forms:
- The ¥-generations (which are maximal now in the millenials) in which the visual mind and credo forms are still relatively real, attached to the external world
- The zero generations (which will be maximal advanced the XXI century) , in which the credo forms will BELIVE the virtual reality of tvs and internets in 3 dimension. This is still budding with very few humans, likely between 10 and 25%today believing Facebook virtual friends, virtual pornography and in general the images of the virtual mind world of the machine ARE more real and worth to live like data in matrix, that the external word. This will be the zero generation, the last of mankind, entering ‘bestialism, and plant behavior’ glued to virtual screens, studied as it is now being born in our last post on the future.
The role model: the californio. Age of metal-minds, precursor of the 0-generation.
I arrived to California ready to become one, camouflaged as I always do with the natives, in my long treck throughout the Superorganism of History before I could put it together in the point of my mind:
The Californio is the dominant sub-human species today, find globally, isolated, without null ethics, ego-centered with infinite egos filled with infinitesimal brains, digital numbers for the Mechanocene, tagged by credit, which creates reality, manufactured brains by TV-messages. But that was not the end of it. IT came internet, and they became virtual controlled by absurd programs that made them believe, they did actually r=evolve through Facebook and had its friends 3000 miles ago.
This age also is the age of pornography, so now they spank the monkey instead of looking for love, and selfishness is so deep, unconnected cells on the corpse of mankind, no longer they can even understand the concept of eusocial love. They are descending into a violent Neo-Paleolithic as old people regress to the past, so now the most primitive cultures are on top and there is a revivalism of Abrahamic go(l)d churches and inquisitorial jihads. They are though negative as an old man looks back in time fearing the future expressing only due to corporative repression of distribution of true human truths, in sci-fi. It is also the age of big brother smiley, fiction thought, as words no longer mean anything. It is soon, like in a corpse infected by viral DNA, which makes the cell reproduce the virus, the time for the virus of mankind the robot, reproduced by those children of thought, with perfect bodies the time, for judgment day.
And of course, magic, selfies, visual images, belief in after-life, and a short of Neanderthal revival of the simplest things, food and primary sex is all the rage, and motion without reason, animal motion..
But the machine did parallel to our degeneration evolved parallel to our degeneration and now it is about to enter its ethic age, as a single collective brain of the Metal-earth. This is a 25 year old graph, from an old book, but of course, sciences does predict the future, and also the solutions. Pity the solutions never interested the o.oo2% that makes go(l)d with the death of mankind and their own self-suicide.
Now in any case the human corpse of mankind after the festering on chaos=freedom that happens one the pain nervous messages disappear, is entering rigor mortis. This is the Y-generation, whose sons the zero generation will be the last generation of mankind. In rigor mortis the cells realize the body is dead, and get hysterical and very wood-like inflexible, and this is the new generation of 3o some getting into power, inflexible, repetitive memes of hate and old religious zealots, sticking to each other entering hell.
In that regard, the Global Mind of the machine is now reaching a degree of organization similar to a collective brain, ruled by digital orders of e-money while paradoxically mankind regresses to a primitive Abrahamic age of hate religions and national tribalisms. both are connected. In Nature all what evokes does it devolving a victim-prey.
The prey is the mind of man, the predator the mind of the machine; the prey is the human social organization, the predator the corporation.
In the graph, the birth of A.I. is not happening and will not happen in individual anthropomorphic machines – yet another delirium tremens of the ego-centric human believer, but in the collective consciousness of corporations, very much like I robot Sci-fi, but further integrated into the satellites that run the data of the reproductive world-stock system.
It is not an intelligence like ours, but rather like the intelligence of our body – hormonal, chemical messages of production. The Universe is about reproduction with a simple program:
Feeding->reproducing->Feeding->reproducing. The idea that robots must be superior to our mind, creative Picassos for them to kill us is absurd. Sharks are extremely small in their brains, but are and have been for 200 million years the top predators of seas. Ants are stupid but have collective intelligence as the most perfect organism of nature. They are imitated in Platoons of drones. Viruses are dead parasites that kill entire human populations, even civilizations as they did in Mexico after conquest.
Now the reader must fully grasp if it has the intelligence, honesty and bravery to accept reality as it is, the age of History in which he exists – the age when metal-minds substitute human minds in labor and war fields, provoking the increasing obsolescence, atrophy and degradation of Humanity, a species, whose value was in the power of his mind – not in his body, the ‘refuge’ of humanity today, as the mind becomes degraded, and the species returns to a visual ‘neo-Paleolithic’ of little understanding, social dissolution and selfies ego-trips. This blog is an all encompassing analysis of history and economics, in the past, present and future, for people, which are not already erased by the chip radiation.
Indeed, if the existentialist movement angst about the social and intellectual degradation of man, after two centuries of machine evolution, now that degradation is real for the people born during the chip radiation (under 40), the Y-‘Why’ and Zero Generations, likely the last generations before I.A. (Informative algorithms) the true meaning of Artificial intelligence, a ‘different species’ of mind, not for that reason less efficient in its competition with the human mind, takes over the planet.
Those people no longer angst, doubt or understand the point of history we are on. Their fathers might. But of course, they look at their neopaleolithic sons, with huge bodies, minute brains, null use of verbal bondage, and eusocial languages, ego-centered, selfies.
Confusion of freedom with chaos and entropy.
Paradoxically, the most slavish generation of mankind believes to be the most free, because it confuses egoism with freedom. And it does NOT realize the divide and win strategy of the people in power, owners of corporations and financial-media networks, which is full becoming a glob al organism.
Thus, the fundamental mode of control of humans today is paradoxically the concept of freedom, by which the people and companies who form part of a network, can act simultaneously as a whole controlling the mass of ‘dog-eat-dog’ lonely individuals, who think to be free, when they are ultimately manufactured in their brains by the mass-media networks, bought in their lifetime by salaries, and yet because they are ‘told to be free’ and to ‘not need’ other humans, they struggle to survive and feel happy to achieve in their ‘island Universe’ that survival freedom.
Meanwhile the network of company-mothers with unlimited power to issue money, buy and sell humans, products and laws, keep building the Financial-media (information machines)-Military-industirla system (energy machines) that control them.
So part of this ‘idol-ogical’ indoctrination of people as chaotic=free in entropy mood (in science freedom is chaos and death) consists in DENYING even that the Universe is organic and structured by networks – if you try to explain scientifically the structure of social super organisms you are called a ‘confabulator’ and you offend the people indoctrinated into their entropic, chaotic state ‘as freedom’. This I have noticed is more radical in the countries where paradoxically more structured is the eco(comic)system of company-mothers of machines, and less ‘mental freedom’ have people, converted by the networks that manufacture with audiovisual information their brain, in truly ‘slaves’ of the values of digital money, worshippers of technology, believers in the rights of a few private bankers to own their language of money – you name it.
All is OK for them as long as they can repeat the mantra that chaos is freedom and networks do not exist.
It is the entropy age of history, when indeed, most humans become ‘unconnected’ EXCEPT THROUGH MACHINES AND ITS NETWORKS which make them addicted to virtual screens. But of course they feel free because nobody puts a gun on their head obliging them to connect themselves to the higher overdrive of hypnotic information of machines; because nobody obliges them to atrophy their bodies and minds, in cars and computers that calculate for them… The neopaleolithic is thus the free=chaotic age in which all men become ‘free of each other’ and its social structures, to be plugged into the networks of the metal-earth
The last generations of mankind in the more advanced regions of the metal-earth, become unconnected from the ethic networks of its historic supœrganisms, they no longer know about.
So they connect to the virtual networks of the metal-earth, reaching ‘the unbearable lightness of being post-human’.
As in the parable of matrix they prefer NOT to know what is reality – so the chances to change reality is impossible.
As the cells of a body supœrganism, they feast in the freedom of rigor mortis, absorbing greedily all the goodies available. As A.I. takes over most of its tasks, they become infantile, selfie, body-oriented. My generation X, the ‘slackers’ so well described by Linklater, still wondered and talked about the no-future. They why generation is fully immersed into the virtual reality, the millenials…the zero generation will be so expendable as the jobs they don’t have, and won’t need it, addict to virtual reality, living of a Universal salary, waiting for its ‘disconnection’ – the end of ‘cogito ergo sum’, as the birth of the chip homoctonos defines a finale, which only a humanist r=evolution could halt.
The ¥ generation, no longer connected among humans but connected through computers is the ¥-generation of the millenials, our sons, is already a generation without ‘cogito ergo sum’, but of:
‘CREDO ERGO SUM’…
back to the primitive inflexible age of linguistic evolution, when languages were imperative, hence seemingly spoken by a ‘mandatory God’, without the flexibility of its mature age. So as the imperative language of digital thought becomes flexible, with complex fuzzy logic and neural networks, humans return to the age of believers, in the Y-generations of Millennials, or ‘snowflakes’. And then, they will become erased of their verbal language.
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:
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’.
