OVERPRODUCTION CRISIS OF CHIPS – E-MONEY & ROBOTS.
In the graph, the present crisis is a ‘classic’ crisis of Economic theory that has happened always at the end of each of the so-caled ‘Kondratieff’ cycles of the Industrial R=evolution in which a new energy and its machines and weapons become the engine of the Economy. Yet at the end of those periods, as corporations keep reproducing machines, there is always a crisis of overproduction of fiat money, printed with informative machines and a crisis of labor, as workers are substituted by tool machines. Thus we live now the crisis of overproduction of chips (minds of metal), similar to the 29 crisis caused by the overproduction of electromechanical engines that automated assembly lines, created massive quantities of speculative ‘electric’ ticker money and saturated the markets of cars and tanks; and the 1870 crisis caused by the overproduction of stock money and railroads that eliminated millions of jobs in the transport sector and were used to fight civil and colonial wars.
In more detail the graph shows the cycles of the Industrial Evolution of machines, which follows an economic, ‘national, generational’ cycle’ of 72±8 years that corresponds to the biological age of human beings and its 3 generations of discoverers of the machine and new energy of the cycle, who create the industries; expansive phase of the sons of the captains of industry and final decadent age of those who use the machine as a weapon to keep profits going. Each cycle a nation discovers a new form of energy (white) applied to the creation of money, the software of the economy and machines (red) its hardware:
Those 3 dual waves are: The British age of bodies of metal, in which humans used simple physical, steam energy to power trains and print stock-money; the German age of electro-chemical engines, hearts of metal which powered cars and planes, the hardware and printed electric money, the software (ticker speculation); and the American age in which electronic energy printed e-money, the software and evolved ‘Minds of metal’: mobile-ears, cameras-eyes and chips brains. We enter now the age of robotics when all those parts are put together into organic machines that compete with humans in labor and war fields, completing the industrial evolution.
Yet since corporations, ‘the company-mothers’ of those machines never cease their production and sale for profits, at the end of each of those dual 72±7 year cycles there is a crisis of overproduction of memes of metal – informative money, energetic weapons and organic machines – that saturates consumption markets provoking an age of Stock-Market crashes (1857-73 crashes of train stocks, 1929-37 crashes of ticker money, 2001-08 crashes of e-money). Further on the misuse of all the limited resources of the planet for industrial overproduction causes paradoxically the underproduction of the parallel system of ‘life-based goods’, humans need to survive, provoking and endemic scarcity of welfare. Yet there is a human solution to those overproduction crisis: instead of running away in search of higher profits overproducing weapons, governments should favour credit to companies that overproduce the alternative life-based welfare goods humans need to survive, creating a ‘WHealthy’ sustainable economy.
But since weapons are the goods of higher profits, in a pure capitalist system, in which credit is not democratically controlled by free elected governments, financial and industrial corporations in search of higher returns, systematically sponsor ‘canons instead of butter’: War rhetoric substitutes diplomatic solutions to armed conflicts to fuel investments in weapons; mass-media enters an age of hate speeches (yellow press in the I cycle, radio-hate in the 30s and now Hate-Tv) and the world enters a ‘crescendo’ age of Keynesian militarism that instead of bringing a global ‘New Deal’ ends up in an age of war.
Thus societies move from a decade of happy consumption – the 1850s, the 1920s and the 1990s – into an age of overproduction of fiat, worthless money, machines and lethal weapons that causes in the social milieu an age of poverty, war and fascism: the 1860s; W.W.II and the present Orwellian age of permanent war and robotic weapons.
So we are living the 30s bis: rise of neofascism, social unrest and poverty, destruction of welfare state, debt-ridden nations that have bought to financiers worthless fiat money and now have to pay with taxes and real wealth back. Further automatization of assembly lines by robots and pcs – then electromechanical engines in moving lines – that throw people out of work.
We live now at the end of the chip age. So we live a crisis of overproduction of chips that:
– Invent huge amounts of ‘free’ e-money for corporations (Pcs have 100 folded the quantity of e-money on planet Earth in the past 30 years); which is then exchanged by real wealth. Yet since fiat money is not wealth ‘per se’, just numbers in a digital computer, when those numbers are overproduced e-money looses value and crashes the markets and ruins the middle classes, who are the last to exit markets – as they receive the information from financiers that ‘unload’ the false money on them. Further on, during the boom cycle of invention of fiat money, financiers lend huge amounts and when the crash happens, they ask for real ‘assets’, real wealth – taxes, properties, shares, causing a massive debt crisis and redistribution of wealth in their favor (1857-73 crash of train stocks and ‘silver crime’, 1929-37 crashes of electric money and real state; 2001-08 crashes of e-money and real state derivatives.)
– They work as blue collar robots and white collar pcs, cause of the labor crisis (1850-70s massive loss of transport jobs to railroads, 1930s massive loss of jobs to moving assembly lines powered by electro-mechanical engines).
– They are applied to weapons, vigilante cameras and drones, causing a political/war crisis of civil rights (1860s-70s civil wars in Germany, Italy and US and colonial wars with massive genocides of ‘colored people; 1930s-40s tanks and bomber neo-fascist wars.)
– They are applied to simultaneous mass-media systems that back all the policies of corporations (as they belong to them) causing an age of political and social corruption and abuse of the people who are paradoxically more harmed by the crisis, and yet are now labelled as ‘enemies’, ‘poor vagrants’ and penalized with jail, taxes and extermination (colonial racism, fascism, islamophobia); since corporations CANNOT be blamed of those crisis nor they WANT to stop them, as they increase enormously their profits during those overproduction crisis in which they:
– Reproduce and therefore sell more machines and weapons; invent huge amounts of fiat money exchanged by wealth and reach enormous political and social power.
And indeed all this is happening again, as we predicted decades ago in our first books on the subject, (1) and yet nothing of this is known, as the control of corporations over all the systems of our societies is an iron fist in velvet glove that censors a true economical scientific analysis of the crisis. Thus in this central post we shall consider both the real crisis we live in, and analyze what would be the proper scientific solutions if political systems could really regain their power and design an economic system for the benefit of man.
Content of this blog
In this central post that tries to resume the content of this blog, based in my pioneer work on biological, systemic, evolutionary models of economics and history, we first treat the ‘present’ state of the eco(nomic)system, laying down in Part I, the cycles of Evolution of ‘memes of metal’, weapons, money and machines that define the Industrial Revolution. We then focus on the last cycle, the American cycle of Minds of Metal, giving an overview of its 3 sub-ages (the Age of Tvs, the age of chips and the age of robots). Then we study in depth the multiple sides of the present crisis of overproduction of chips (labor crisis, financial crisis, media crisis, war crisis) and its human, democratic solutions.
Yet it is a fact that we live no longer in a democracy, but in a dictatorship of financial and industrial corporations that monopolize the production and use of the languages of social power, money, invented with electronic platforms, used to control political parties, which handle with laws and taxes the needs of those corporations, essentially ‘company-mothers’ of machines that are terraforming the Earth to the image and likeness of the ‘new’ dominant species of this planet…
Indeed, despite ego-trips of freedom and political and economical correctness, we humans are loosing the control of our destiny in this planet to corporations which are creating a new ecosystem, the eco(nomic)system, an evolving global organism of informative and energetic machines, which in the jargon of systems sciences will be called the Financial-Media (informative) – Military-Industrial (energetic) complex system. And those who rule the world are not evolving it to the image and likeness of mankind and its citizens (that would be a real democracy) but to the image and likeness of the FMMI System.
So we need a second part to explain why social sciences have failed the scientific method, have never been able to explain the world as it is, sell fantasy dreams about the future, have not been able to create a better world and are not taken mankind out of this crisis and managing properly our social systems. The answer again from the perspective of biological models and theory of evolution is this:
In Nature efficient systems appear randomly and then are selected according to its efficiency: properly designed systems survive. Mutations which are wrong, inefficient and cannot focus properly energy and information, become extinct. So in history we observe two streams:
– The random creation of systems that are neither logic, nor explaining properly reality, not balanced with Nature, or efficient and well designed, historic societies, tribal cultures and their ideologies of power, and then a logic, scientific approach to social sciences
– that tried to design a perfect law imitating the laws of nature and its efficient systems, born in Greece with Aristotle and the beginning of rational thought.
And then since the Times of Greece and Rome a battle started between this rational, democratic, ‘Latin’ view of social sciences, vs. the primitive, historic ideologies of hierarchical, social power obtained with the ab=use of mankind by people-castes that misused metal, weapons and money to dominate mankind. This battle is not over. On the contrary it seems clear today that the people-castes and cultures that have made of the memes of metal, money weapons and machines and their evolution, the goal of our species, and have created the Financial-Media/Military-Industrial System have come to dominate the bulk of mankind who tried to design a perfect world, a perfect democracy and a demand-based human economy. And unfortunately for the development of social sciences, most scholars in the field of economics have and continue to side with the ideological world of realpolitiks and metal-power. Or in words of Tertulianus: ‘you will defend me with the sword and I will defend you with the word’. Thus we make an account of the historic evolution of social sciences in the second part of this post and blog.
L.S. a system scientist.

PART I. THE FINANCIAL-MEDIA/MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX:
OVERPRODUCTION CRISIS OF CHIPS, E-MONEY AND ROBOTS.
The Industrial Evolution of machines follows an economic human generational cycle’ of 72±8 years.
Each cycle a nation discovers a new form of energy (steam, then oil and electricity), applied to the creation of money, the software of the economy and its hardware, which are machines that imitate the organic functions of human beings, enhancing our biological systems but also competing and atrophying them.
So in the XIX century during the British age steam was applied to bodies of metal, trains and steamers; then in the German cycle, oil was applied to engines, their hearts and after II world war in the American cycle, electricity applied to the creation of minds of metal, chips, cameras and mobiles that imitate human brains, eyes and ears. Now in the last cycle of the industrial evolution we put together those organic parts into organic machines, robots.
Since we create machines by imitating human organs of energy and information, from a scientific perspective, machines must be considered organisms of metal, and their ‘company-mothers’ their systems of reproduction, whose only goal is to evolve, multiply and sell them for profit, creating an eco(nomic)system made to its image and likeness.
Facts those which allow to study the economics with the laws of biological organisms, predicting the evolution of machines, their crisis of over reproduction and their relationships of symbiosis and competition with the human kind, as this writer has done for the past 20 years, forecasting with remarkable accuracy the present crisis of overproduction of chips, its software, e-money and its hardware, white collar pcs and blue collar robots that are displacing humans from labor and war fields.
Such biological model of the industrial evolution casts doubts on the present strategy of solving the crisis by further increasing the overproduction of those ‘memes of metal’. Instead nations should increase the production of the alternative economic system: welfare, carbon-life based goods that humans need to survive, creating a world made to our image and likeness, by switching credit in a global New Deal to companies that reproduce human WHealth, from Health care to agricultural goods while limiting credit to corporations that overproduce industrial wealth.
Yet since machines have lower costs of production and higher prices than welfare goods, their sales give higher profits, reason why in a capitalist system where money is invented by private corporations whose only goal is to increase profits, the present overproduction crisis of industrial goods that absorbs the limited resources of the planet – provoking a parallel, chronic underproduction of welfare foods – cannot be solved. The result is the constant degradation of the ecosystems based in carbon-life goods, Nature and History. Since we, humans are NOT made of metal, but of carbon-life, and we need welfare goods to survive, a fact often forgotten by those financial and industrial corporations that rule the eco(nomic)system.
Thus the only democratic, humane solution to the crisis is political: the financial industry must be nationalized, creating a mixed system of political democracy, western style and financial control, Chinese style, where banks are regulated to foster credit on the welfare sectors of the economy that provokes a much higher, healthier demand-based economical growth.
But such scientific solutions to the crisis that could design a better system of political economics that would satisfy the needs of all human beings, maintaining their freedom, by imitating the most efficient super-organisms of nature, cannot be implemented due to two factors:
On one side the sciences of economics and history have never been more than a theoretical exercise limited by the ‘anti-quantum paradox’ – in an opposite fashion to the smallish observable of quantum physics, influenced by the observer, in social science the smallish scientific observer is influenced by the huge political and ideological systems of corporative and political power that prevent any reform of the system…
But what the owners of corporations and the historic figures of economic sciences believe in? We talk of an alternative ‘historic’ ideology, classic economics, that caters to the power of corporations and their owners, hides all collateral effects on mankind of their relentless evolution and overproduction of ‘memes of metal’, weapons, money and machines that are terraforming the Earth and making obsolete an increasing number of workers and consumers. In this ‘historic’ ideology, usually called ‘capitalism’ born in XVIII century Britain (Adam Smith), a sort of ‘Intelligent Design’ applied to economics, which passes as science but has its origin in the biblical ideologies of the founders of corporations and their hierarchical systems of control of societies, before the scientific method, biology and the machine appeared, the purpose of mankind is to accumulate wealth, money, ‘the intelligence of god (Calvin) by all means without questions.
The result is a runaway blind train of corporations evolving and reproducing machines, eliminating human labor whenever a machine is more efficient, limiting the rights of all sectors of society except the ‘stockrats’, the new aristocrats owners of corporations, which monopolize the use of the social language of power – money – as in the past aristocrats monopolized weapons, with no legal responsibilities (anonymous societies)… and a series of sophisticated modes of censorship – political and economical correctness -that explain why most social scientists that cater to power only talk ‘thin air’, ‘damned lies and statistics’, which are unrelated to the fundamental zeitgeist of the age and cause of most problems of mankind – our increasing substitution and obsolescence to the new age of the intelligent machine that work as blue collar robot, white collar pc, terminator weapon and reproduces electronic money without limit, valuing and giving orders to all elements of society with it.
So after explaining the true laws of economic systems, the thin air arguments of classic economics, the evolution of the financial-media, military-industrial system, and analyze in depth the present crisis of overproduction of chips we will also consider the historic origin of economic sciences and the people-castes that rule the world with their “intelligent design’ ideologies.
1. THE KONDRATIEFF CYCLES OF THE INDUSTRIAL R=EVOLUTION.
Point of view of the machine.
In the graph, machines are systems of metal that humans construct by imitating their biological organs and functions of energy and information, proper of animal life. For that reason machines have evolved as life organisms do, in 3 generational cycles, as humans have recreated carbon-life based organisms with metal in increasing degrees of complexity:
And then the robotic cycle, which fusions the bodies, hearts and heads of machines of the previous cycles into a new organism of metal, potentially independent of the humankind.
As such corporations, the ‘company-mothers’ of those machines whose biological function is to evolve and re=produce them, made first the bodies of machines (XIX c.), then the minds of machines (cameras-eyes, mobile-ears and chips-brains).
Finally, in the XXI century, as nature does with simple organisms, such as viruses in cells, where the 3 ‘parts’ of the virus – its DNA information, body and legs are constructed – and then assembled together, we put together all those organic components into autonomous robots, completing the industrial r=evolution of ‘metalife’ – a new organic species, made of a stronger substance than carbon-life…
Thus, we can expect an increasing competition between robotic and human workers and soldiers in the economic ecosystem, that will last the rest of the century, as those robots compete with human beings in labor and war fields
The generations that have invented our Industrial world (Human Point of view).
In the graph, each cycle of the Industrial R=evolution is a wave of 3 types of machines – discovery machines, found by scientists as weapons and energy systems; transport machines that expand worldwide the wave, crash of overproduction (as the one we live of overproduction of chips and e-money produced by them) and finally an age of war that now starts with electronic terminators and vigilante systems. The first wave was dominated by England, the second (engines) by Germany, the 3rd by America and now we enter the fourth, ‘singularity’ age.
In the graph, we can observe also that those 3 centennial cycles of evolution of machines are subdivided further in a first age (white cycle) in which a new energy is discovered (steam, oil/electricity, electronic and solar systems).
The new, more complex energy is then applied to power machines and used to manufacture new bombs (the reader should understand that machines and weapons are two sides of the same coin, or in parable terms ‘the bad and good fruits of the tree of science’, which always come together).
Then at the height of the cycle, the new energy is applied to transport machines and finally it reaches its ‘evolutionary zenith’, when it is applied to the ‘top predator’, most perfect metal species – weapons (red cycle).
In that regard, machines have 3 phases, parallel to the 3 ages of organisms: They are born as energy/bombs; then a new age of discovery and massive peaceful consumption follows and finally an age of war, as the most evolved machine is always a weapon, concludes the cycle.
So we had 3 ages of energy: the age of steam; the age of oil and electricity an the age of electronics – and then 3 ages of new machines=weapons; the age of trains-colonial wars; cars=tanks and robots=terminators – the final age of the industrial evolution that now starts in earnest.
Since after the end of the ‘Age of Germany’ and its Kondratieff wave of electro-mechanical engines used in weapons during World war II, the fascist age of cars=tanks and planes=bombers, the electro-mechanical wave was substituted by the Age of Digital minds (TVs, computers, mobiles, which act as the eyes, brains and ears of the future robotic species).
So we started a new dual wave of ‘electronic machines‘, which evolved and reproduced in increasing numbers till saturating the global market, provoking the final crashes of overproduction of 2001 and 2008. Then after those crashes the first robots are being evolved as weapons, with consequences for the ‘no-future’ of mankind we can deduce from the previous cycles.
The periodicity of the cycle is human in origin as the graph shows, since it is the biological human cycle of founding fathers, reproducers and decadent militaristic people who carry the way. But this explanation which satisfies the elite – we are progressing, as sons of ‘god’ chosen with a manifest destiny, doesn’t explain really the precission of the cycle.
What passes today as economics is merely an ideology of corporative power THAT Does not respect the scientific method and its 3 tenants, gathering cyclical data, finding rational answers and predict the future. Economists care nothing about the fundamental data of the industrial evolution – THE NATURE OF MACHINES AND MONEY, ‘memes’ of metal that evolve, imitating human forms, and substituting us – so digital money is the language of information that substitutes the values of the ethic wor(l)d and machines organs of metal that substitute us, and corporations their ‘company-mothers’. And their EVOLUTION and effects of mankind THE FUNDAMENTAL data of the economic system.
Indeed classic, ‘authorized’ economics is an ideology of ‘corporate profits and power’, achieved with the massive reproduction and sale of those machines. Hence overproduction of machines is always good for corporations and most economists will therefore back them, despite any collateral effects they produce on human beings.
What is the main collateral damage of those overproduction crisis on human beings? The opposite word:
Under production of the 2 main things human ‘truly’ need – labor and welfare, life-based human goods, our organisms need to survive, from food to housing, to health-care to education – as all resources that could be used to reproduce them are monopolized by corporations and used to reproduce machines.
Indeed, since the ultimate goal of corporations is NOT human, they do not reproduce the ‘welfare goods’ humans need to survive. Thus at the end of each of those Kondratieff cycles, as companies overproduce the machines of each cycle (and the money invented with them), in a world of limited resources, industrial and financial corporations absorb all the wealth of the economy – monetary and material wealth – provoking an scarcity of money and goods on the human side of the Economy.
And so at the end of each cycle those crisis of overproduction cause a parallel crisis of poverty and unemployment, as humans loose their jobs to new tool-machines and their wealth to corporations. So in the 30s, the overproduction of cars and radios and the application of their electromechanical engines to assembly lines, meant the loss of millions of jobs and the poverty of humans, while the world was filled with cars, its armed version, tanks (II W.W.) and stock-market speculators became immensely wealthy.
Now we live the age of oveproduction of chips, and its derivative, e-money blue collar robots, and white collar pcs, which are the REAL non HUMAN, objective causes of this crises, as e-money multiplies, invented by private bankers, who absorb all the wealth of the economy, leaving no money for the welfare system and the human sector and its governments. Indeed, today there are 100 times more money in the world that in 1973 when e-money was invented. But all that money is in the power of corporations not of humans and dedicated to evolve machines not to satisfy the needs of the people.
Meanwhile, robots and pcs eliminate workers, automating factories and its military version, evolving terminators – drones, vigilante cameras – watch, control and kill human beings.
It is also for that reason parallel to the crisis of overproduction of stock-money in the XIX century and ticker, electric money during the 20s and 30s and to the colonial crisis of overproduction of trains and stock-money of the XIX century.
2. 72±7 YEARS CRASHES OF OVERPRODUCTION OF MONEY AND MACHINES
Overproduction crises: 1860s=1930s=2010s
In the stills from the film the eco(nomic)system, the 72 years, human generational cycle of overproduction of ‘memes of metal’, in it 3 generational ages, separated by 72 years (1857+7 crashes of train stocks; 1929+7 year crashes of cars and ticker money and 2001-08 crashes of e-money derivatives and chips/robos) have two phases:
– Overproduction of machines that work and corporative money (train that caused massive unemployment and stock money in the 60s, cars and assembly lines and ticker money in the 1920s and blue collar robots that automated those assembly lines and e-money stocks and derivatives in the 200s)
– Then as social unrest grows, there is overproduction of hate-media printed with the same machines that print money (yellow press in the XIX c. radio-hate in the 1930s and Tv-media hate in the 2010s), accompanied by overproduction of weapons, as the same machines are armored (colonial conquest with trains, fascism with tanks=armored cars and terminator robots in the 2010s).
It is a fact of economic history that all the great long-lasting crises of the economy have been overproduction crises.
Moreover, overproduction is the essence of the biological game, the Universe plays in this planet. In biological jargon, an overproduction crisis is equivalent to a reproductive radiation of a top predator species that competes and substitutes a lesser species – in the economic ecosystem the human worker or soldier.
And so what we observe in the great overproduction crises of the Industrial Revolution – the overproduction of trains, cars=tanks and chips (e-money and robots) – is a similar process of competition between the memes of metal corporations overeproduce and the human function they imitate, atrophy and substitute or eliminate in labor and war fields:
Money, the language of digital information that acts as the genetic language of corporations substitutes laws and buys people; robots substitute blue collar workers and soldiers and Pcs, white collar workers.
In all of those overproduction crises of memes of metal the overproduction of corporative ‘fiat money’ printed with information machines, of tool machines and of weapons had predictable, negative effects on the rest of society:
Tool machines and weapons competed with human workers in labor and war fields and
– Fiat, corporative, speculative money distorted the economy, tilting it towards industrial production, and causing an endemic lack of investments in the goods of the welfare state most voters demand but industrial corporations didn’t reproduce.
In the first crisis of overproduction of stock-money and trains, while train lines were deployed in Ireland, 1/2 of the population suffered famine and while those trains were built in the Far West, the Indians were exterminated. Speculation in land and stocks provoked a series of crashes that merely enhanced investments in weapons and colonial wars.
In the 20s, as electro-mechanical engines were used to create moving assembly lines, millions lost their jobs. But overproduction of cars didn’t stop. When workers could not consume them, Germany transformed them into tanks and demanded them for war and millions died.
Now we suffer a massive creation of electronic fiat money in stocks and derivatives, while robots throw people out of work in labor and war fields. But nobody discusses the crisis, in its real causes. Thus this hidden engine of the economic crises, overproduction for profits, is not going to stop, but it will follow the natural, evolutionary laws of all systems of energy and information and continue according to the patterns of evolution of machines of the past. And so we can and have predicted with enormous accuracy during 20 years the ‘future patterns’ of those crises.
But of course, you never heard about my books, papers, documentaries, even art exhibits I have done on this crisis… since in the 90s I discovered the exact periodicity of the Kondratieff wave and its biological meaning… Corporations are not interested in changing policies that increase their profits. Never mind they will destroy the world and probably extinguish mankind. I remember ‘Inconvenient truth’, in which Al Gore compared the end of the world and a pile of gold.
It was obvious to the audience which laughed happily that the world MUST be destroyed if we can make a buck.
But why, people ‘believe’ that a pile of Gold and corpses, including theirs, is a better destiny than a sustainable world, a paradise of life on Earth that a true science of economics could easily Build?
Because people don’t know the truth about economics and nothing can be said because corporations, which use the same machines used to print money and information control mass-media and print the money of governments.
Indeed, since the 70s, when e-money appeared thanks to the invention of chips, parallel to the overproduction crisis of chips, a massive attack on democracies ended with the legitimate rights of nations to invent their own money, first destroying the gold standard that limited e-money production (Nixon), then forbidding governments to invent money with deficit zero laws (Reagan, Tatcher) then ending the regulations that limited the invention of e-money in computer platforms (Clinton), and finally when money had multiplied by 100 monopolized by private bankers and stock-market corporations, since to have billions of $ in idle accounts was NOT enough, just taking whatever was left on the hands of the people with bail outs, farming taxes, inventing toxic assets you name it.
So bankers awash with wealth have now bought our politicos. Or as Miss Clinton put it – ‘it is difficult to argue with your banker’.
So the 1st power, corporations, have bought the 2nd power, politicians, who control the 3rd power, the military, and are in full symbiosis with the 4th power, the press, and all what they care for is to oveproduce their ‘memes of metal’, money, machines, weapons and audiovisual bull$hit – a key wor(l)d to understand our virtual, fantasy wor(l)d that hides the dying truth of a Darwinian Universe in which men are being displaced from the eco(nomic)system in growing numbers.
We live in the age of bull$hit. People don’t even care to Lie they just bull$hit.
Since ‘people are slaves, they believe, they don’t reason’ (Aristotle) And so all what is needed for bull$hit to rule the world is to make them believe a fantasy of future, imprinting their minds with audiovisual messages in favor of their ‘manifest destiny’. And for that it comes handy the 4th of our overproduction crisis – the crisis of hate media and audiovisual manufacturing of the collective brain.
Of course, all wrapped up with enough ‘macho man’ ego-trip ideologies that make us happy and proud of our beliefs – nationalism, aka tribal competition between the ‘species’ Homo Americanus, Homo Germanicus, etc. (no longer homo sapiens who obey the laws of darwin, of collaboration between individual species); capitalism, aka the right of bankers to print our money for themselves (not the laws of democracies that tell us, the people and their governments must control their languages of power), Techno-utopia (machine is progress, humans are the past) and Biblical religions (‘go(l)d is the intelligence of God’, Calvin) and so on.
AND THIS IS THE BIGGEST LIE OF HISTORY: THAT THE ‘OVERPRODUCTION’ OF MACHINES AND MONEY, OR ‘GDP, IS THE WEALTH OF NATIONS, AND WHEN MORE WEAPONS AND MONEY A NATION HAS (EXACTLY IN WAR PERIODS, when the entire system is dedicated to reproduce expensive top predator weapons that kill humans), people are happier. The opposite is the darwinian truth between those 2 species: at the peak of national wealth is when all the people gets killed by weapons.
THE WEALTH OF NATIONS ARE THOSE GOODS HUMANS NEED TO SURVIVE. Latter we shall study in depth why this error of measuring wealth as ‘monetary wealth’ and not human wealth is today ‘sacred’.
The result are the crisis of overproduction with its collateral effects over human beings, who are substituted by those machines as workers, or killed in war fields or suffer the consequences of their consumption: substitution, enhancement and atrophy of the similar human organ…
And this can only be understood with a biological, organic model of machines and the Industrial Evolution, within the context of the laws of darwinian struggle and survival proper of this planet.
The cycles of evolution of machines are ‘dual’ in its consequences for mankind, as machines are an ‘organic species’ that imitate our human, biological organs (chips are metal-brains, cranes, metal-arms and so on). Thus they are both symbiotic to humans, enhancing our power, but competing with us, in fields of labor and war. In fields of war the most perfect machines, weapons, kill us; in fields of labor, they throw us out of work, as machines reproduce machines better than humans.
The real cause of unemployment: firing workers will increase labor.
Now we can consider the other cause of the crisis: overproduction of labor of mechanical nature, chips embedded in blue collar robots and white collar pcs.
If we were under the design of a true science of economics, the trade-off between machines that compete with humans would be acknowledged, and robotics forbidden. As the robot is the new TOP PREDATOR SPECIES OF THIS PLANET, MADE OF A STRONGER ATOM THAN US, METAL, WHICH ONCE IT IMITATES PERFECTLY THE HUMAN FORM AS A.I. WILL DISPLACE US FROM THIS PLANET AS IT IS ALREADY DOING IN ITS PRIMITIVE VERSIONS IN LABOR AND WAR FIELDS.
In that regard the most important by far of those overproduction crisis for mankind at large, NOT for the 1% elite of owners of corporations who care only about money is NOT the financial crisis by the labor crisis caused by the overproduction of chips applied to white collar pcs and blue collar robots.
Those mental machines improve production systems substituting workers. Yet since further growth of profits is obtained with the substitution of workers by machines of ‘higher productivity’, all corporations and their hired economists praise the process and ask for further growth in productivity, regardless of the loss of human labor
Since ∆Profits = ∆ Productivity = ∆ Machine Labor (capital) / < Human Labor.
THus company-mothers increase benefits, firing labor (the denominator of that equation) and increasing investments in machines that have no salary or social security and are better adapted by the laws of affinity of the Universe in the actions of machine reproduction. This key equation explains the 3 great crisis of labor of history, as first trains eliminated the main source of labor in the pre-industrial age (transport), then engines automated assembly lines (30s crisis) and now white collar Pcs and blue collar robots eliminate most human labor in automated factories.
But, as this is the key element to understand why the crisis is NOT solved, neither explained, Economists have been for 200 years serving the goals of corporations, whose only purpose under the present capitalist system is to increase profits. So their main goal is NOT to make a better world for man or create an objective science of economics, but to find complicated arguments ‘damned lies and statistics’ to make-belief people that all this is NOT happening.
Thus OVERPRODUCTION CRISES ARE SYSTEMATICALLY DENIED BY THE MOST POWERFUL INSTITUTION OF OUR WORLD, THE COMPANY-MOTHER OF MACHINES, WHOSE ONLY MANDATE IS PRECISELY TO RE=PRODUCE, SELL AND PROFIT FROM OVERPRODUCTION CRISES.
We are NOT overproducing the goods of the welfare state that have a biological origin and make us survive but metal-goods, machines, its energy and information – NOT HUMAN ENERGY, FOOD, HUMAN INFORMATION, EDUCATION, HUMAN WELFARE, HEALTH-CARE AND HOUSING…But this could only happen if humans lived in ‘real democracies’ where the needs of humans and their rights were more important than those of corporations, their sacred property, machines and the profits of their owners… they are not.
In fact all politicos and economists insist that firing labor increasing productivity will CREATE LABOR! And people believe them.
Nobody quotes Mr. Tinbergen’s discovery (a key economist of the Keynesian school, responsible for the welfare state of Northern European countries) that the true meaning of productivity is to allocate resources and profits to either the machine or the labor sector. And since the ‘marginal profits’ allocated to machines for their work go ALL to the corporation stock-owners, and the marginal profits of human labor go to the people, ‘obviously’ in a capitalist ‘democracy’, we must put machines and fire labor.
Of course if we forbade robotics, unemployment would plummet, but the marginal profits given to machines->capital->corporations will plummet too.
There is zero mystery about the future, except because humans do NOT want to understand it, in the same manner there is zero mystery about death except the fact humans do not want to accept it. But in the same manner a coward patient won’t go to the doctor, if history doesn’t take seriously its illness – precisely the control of economics and corporations and its offspring of machines, over history and governments and its offspring of human beings, history will be history soon.
This is in a nutshell the zeitgeist and future of this crisis, the last of the Industrial R=evolution as history ends and the metal-earth, the economic ecosystem emerges, when considered NOT from a human anthropomorphic perspective only (which would be the struggle between the human antidemocratic elites and the mass of sheeple mankind they prey by the oldest of all tricks of nature – to camouflage as one of them, that is as wolves with sheeple skin… but FROM AN OBJECTIVE, NON ANTHROPOMORPHIC POINT OF VIEW, which must take into account according to the fundamental law of scientific objectivism, a NON-human perspective, that of the machine and the corporation as its reproductive organism that cares nothing for the future of mankind and that of biology and evolution, social and darwinian, which is the ‘law of the land’, that is of humans and all our endevours.
3. THE FINANCIAL-MEDIA/MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX.
The 3 ages of each Machine (Point of view of the machine).
2 other biological division is needed to understand how those cycles of economics affect so deeply in a biological manner the cycles of history and the life of human beings—the distinction between ‘peaceful machines’ that human consume and ‘predator machines’ – weapons that consume men, ruled by the industrial military complex of energetic machines.; which leads to the distinction between the financial-media system of information machines that print money and information for corporations
Machines have 2 forms. Some are tools, symbiotic to humans. Some compete with men at work and kill us in war fields as weapons. So the trains, cars/planes and robotic workers of the I and II and III Industrial R=evolution become transports to death, armored tanks, bombers and robots, which keep the profits of corporations going.
The switch from an age of peaceful machines that we consume to an age of top predator weapons that consume us is signaled by an economical crash. So we are now in the age of molting from a peaceful economy of human consumption to Keynesian militarism – an age in which the engine of growth of the dominant nation of the electronic cycle – America – is the robotic weapon and vigilante camera.
Their biological nature shows in their dual forms and functions, which correspond to the destructive, Darwinian and creative, symbiotic arrows of living beings. Unfortunately, when machines mutate into weapons, History enters in a cycle of global wars. It has happened 3 times at the end of each Kondratieff cycles of machines’ evolution. Trains consumed in the 1830s became imperial armies to conquer the west and Africa in the 1860s. Cars consumed in the 1920s became tanks in the 1940s and computers consumed in the 1990s became surveillance systems and are now used to build terminators in the 20101 The process has immediate repercusions in all the ambits of history, whose ‘human characters’ become cynical neo-fascist politicians, who order war for profits with the connivence of the same factories that produced consumption goods and now switch to weapons. While artists, the human masters of the wor(l)d, suffer an age of angst and prophetic thought, as they see the cycles of history repeating themselves. So Picasso painted blue corpses that anticipated the Holocaust and Hollywood artists make movies about the extinction of man by terminators.
Machines are, as the parable of the Tree of Science explains, dual fruits, good tools and eviL=anti-Live weapons that can extinguish us. Hence the need to control and prune the tree of technology and allow only the re=production of machines harmless to man. On the other hand, weapons are the key to understand both, the cycles of history and economics, as they are willingly re=produced by the same company-mothers that make ‘peaceful machines’, given the fact that they have the highest prices.
Thus, company-mothers alternate the creation of good and bad fruits, according to the evolving, cyclical ages of those machines and energies. Unfortunately, since all forms of energy can be used as bombs and the most evolved machines are weapons, weapons are produced both, at the beginning and at the end of a Kondratieff cycle of energies. Thus, both, the end and the beginning of those cycles overlap in an age in which new energies are used to make bombs and old machines reach its evolutionary zenith as weapons, causing together the ‘war ages’ of those cycles.
In that regard, a scientific analysis of the evolution of each energetic generation of machines distinguishes, as in any biological species, 3±1 ages, parallel to the 3 organic ages of life, (energetic youth, reproductive maturity and 3rd, dying age):
— As all young, life forms, full of energy, machines are born as engines used in pure energy processes: pumps, heating systems or bomb devices.
— But youth is an age that evolves quickly into plenitude. So in their mature age, those engines are applied to transport machines. Then, the machine starts an age of massive re=production, diversification and peaceful consumption, the happy 20s or the happy 90s, similar to the mature, reproductive age of a living being.
— Finally, in its third age, the machine mutates, becoming a weapon that kills, consumes human beings and often becomes destroyed in the process. So happens to life in his third age, closer to death.
Thus, machines have 2 evolutionary forms, which mimic those of any species: the first, simplest machines are peaceful, consumption tools, whose energy and information enhance our own informative and energetic capacities. So we can talk farther with a mobile metal-ear and move faster with a car. Its reproduction and sale therefore brings times of peace and happiness to the countries that make them, as people experience the exhilarating feeling of being stronger and more intelligent thanks to them. They are the good fruits of the Tree of science.
But as machines evolve, their informative and energetic capacities grow so much that they harm the human body, becoming weapons; or they are used to ‘manufacture’ human opinion with their audiovisual information that ‘hypnotizes’ the collective subconscious. So, finally the industrial and military power uses the new weapons to kill and the new informative machines to program people into loving war (Hitler’s Radio-hate, hate-TV in this cycle.)
Corporative Money runs the world: Capitalism vs. Democracy.
In the graph, money is a language of digital information, which has evolved according to the laws of all languages, diminishing its energy/size, increasing its speed of reproduction of information and finally it has become just a digital flow of information in computer brains that control today the ‘metal-earth’, the economic ecosystem with a ‘digital mind’ based in the ‘universal grammar of money’, man=price=object. Indeed, it is all in the grammar of the language, and the history of man can be understood as a fight between two grammars, the ethic grammar of words that make of man the center of creation, man (subject) Verb (action) Object (energy of man), and the language of money which compare us with objects, and put us a price…
The control of those two languages of social power, means according to the natural structure of all social organisms in a ‘neuronal/informative class’ and a reproductive/working body that OBEYS blindly the messages of the languages and its cellular people-castes the control of human societies. So priests and politicians control verbal, ethic societies. And bankers who monopolize credit control capitalist societies and the military that controls weapons controls dictatorships.
This means that only A SOCIETY IN WHICH ETHIC WORDS, LAWS are THE TOP PREDATOR LANGUAGE THAT commands the other two can be a democracy.
Yet as money multiplied in greater numbers and priced more ‘things’ and ‘human capital’ it became the dominant language in control of the law, and those who issued money would control western societies. This growing power of corporations and financial institutions increased exponentially with the invention of e-money, which has multiplied by 100 in 40 years the monetary mass of the world – hence the paradox of a corporative world awash in money, where companies like Apple are worth more than +100 million pakistanis and market speculators easily make 1 billion $ a year while millions loose their homes.
Yet since the same machines used to print money print information (papers in the past, computer platforms today), the financial world and those who own it, have created a Financial-Media system that hides the tremendous injustice of the system. And they have rewritten social sciences into ideologies that cater to their agenda, from ‘The Economist’ the organ of the Rothschild family to the Nobel Prizes given by the Rijsbank usurping the Nobel Name to the MBA programs that cater only to the needs of corporations, to the constant degradation of human institutions by the press.
But all this of course is not well understood by most people, even scholars who have forgot the last free age of social sciences and journalism (60s, 70s), which brings the second reason why men believe in a system that destroys most of them: the fact corporations the same people that use electronic machines to print money, own mass-media systems, as those machines are used NOT only to print e-money but also e-news.
And so in the past and the present, power ideologies that make human slaves and pass as sciences of freedom imprint their minds by the classic method of Mr. Goebbels, first minister of Propaganda – now called Information: ‘If you repeat a lie’ (then with radio now with TVs) many times people will believe on it. The bigger the lie the more they will believe it’.
In the graph, the 3 main types of information machines of the Industrial Revolution, the press, which reached 2 high points of hate-speeches during the Religious wars, and then in the XIX century, during the yellow press and stock-paper era; electric communicators, wired and wireless radios, which reached its peak of hate-speeches in the fascist era, and electronic communicators (TVs and internet) which started its ‘hate’ age with Reagan and its evil empire speeches. He would be the first of a series of actors-politicians modern ‘celebrities’ with ‘good diction’, as the previous radio age was dominated by politicos with great voices and the press era by writers with emotional speeches.
In that sense, a key element, largely overlooked to understand the interaction between machines and humans and how corporations, organisms that re=produce machines have imposed its evolution as the goal of collective mankind globalizing its memes in favor of money and weapons and erasing the enlightened, r=evolutionary ages that seek the evolution of man (founding fathers of the American and French Revolution, Social Eu, 60s r=evolution), is the power of ‘metal-communicators’, machines of information that print languages of value, digital money and words that command civilizations. The medium is the message and bias the message in its favor. Thus during the overproduction crises, those who command the medium, the yellow press, the radio, the TV in this electronic cycle, command the audience and establish a single-thought, with inquisitions against their power and of course, the medium itself… But the machine of information cannot be defeated because it also prints money. And so in the same manner machines have their evil twin weapons, digital money has its twin in the mass-media systems that manufacture the human collective mind.
The biggest of all the lies of the financial-media system that imprints money and the ideas of mankind is the absurd belief that ‘Capitalism’ and ‘Democracy’ mean the same. They are in fact as opposed as ‘Military dictatorships’ and democracies, since capitalism is a ‘dictatorship’ of money and those who print it – but far more difficult to understand and change, as it is far more sophisticated in its handling of information, monopolized by those electronic machines.
Let us then define capitalism in objective terms, comparing it with Militarism.
‘Capitalism’ is the ideology of financial and industrial corporations and its owners, ‘stockrats’, the new aristocrats of the modern world, who believe they must issue in monopoly the language of social power, digital money to reproduce their memes of metal (weapons, money and machines), with exclusion of citizens of democracies who want to reproduces memes of life, proper of the welfare state and their elected governments, whose politicians are bought with corporative money to issue laws that favor their agenda
THE CORPORATION COMPETES WITH OUR GOVERNMENTS AS A SYSTEM THAT IS MORE EFFICIENTLY DESIGNED, AND ITS OFF-SPRING OF MACHINES COMPETE WITH HUMAN IN LABOR AND WAR FIELDS. IF ECONOMISTS WERE HUMANISTS, THIS WOULD BE EXPLAINED, CORPORATIONS REGULATED ACCORDING TO THE USEFULNESS OF THEI PRODUCTS TO MANKIND AND HUMANS WOULD TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEM FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT.
BUT UNDER the ideology of power of corporations, classic economics, NOTHING OF THIS IS EXPLAINED. So we walk in a single path:
– All what is good for financial and industrial corporations, must happen. Overproduction of money and machines must happen. And if men suffer, bad luck is the will of God.
We live in a system in which a new top predator ‘organism’ the company-mother of machines rules the world for its off-spring of different species and all human institutions, including human governments and human minds, are becoming corrupted, degraded and atrophied by the evolving machines of the new species.
It is this duality never recognized between two species and the organisms that represent them – man and the machine, memes of life and memes of metal, corporations and governments and the competition between them in labor and war fields and the choice we make between reproducing ‘canons and butter’, with the limited resources of this planet which explains the economical and existential crisis we go through – since in the modern age of return to harsh capitalism, the choice has been made to reproduce canons, machines, corporative money; hence butter, human beings, governments have no resources.
Today we all believe that humans are unworthy of spending money on them. Humans are unworthy of working when a machine, a blue collar robot or white collar pc makes a better job. We believe corporations are more efficient and must have the upper hand. And we believe those who rule corporations must rule mankind – the stockratic elite of owners, who care nothing for thefuture of most of us.
Capitalism – the government of corporations, overwhelmingly dedicated to reproduce those memes of metal (informative money, which used to be gold and now is a digital language of information in the brain of computers; energetic metal, weapons that kill our bodies; and organic metal, machines that atrophy and substitute our life organs) is incompatible with Democracy. It is just the new form of dictatorship that substitutes aristocrats that in the old world, thought that they had to issue in monopoly the language of social power then, weapons, because they were chosen by the ‘grace of god’ and then with weapons coerce Courts to issue the laws they desire. And of course, in both cases, the monopolist of power could not be judged and was no responsible. So today we have anonymous societies whose CEOs cannot be judged and in the past aristocratic courts. All has changed to remain the same.
In fact, both systems end up producing massive war ages, since weapons are the more profitable, more expensive machines and so in a capitalist system that seeks NOT the wealth and welfare of humans, weapons are the preferred machine systematically overproduced, as it gives high profits, and war the engine of economics during crisis, in which ‘gun is chosen’ over butter (the choice of real democracies).
And this of course explains why at the end of all those cyclical crisis of overproduction, when human demand of machines plummets as labor dwindles, fascist capitalist ‘democracies’ arise, and wars are created. Today America is spending more Gdp percentage in weapons that Germany before the break of the spanish civil war. So we can consider that we are entering the militaristic phase of capitalism democracies, marching towards III world war.
Why then nobody talks of the Darwinian competition between human and mechanical labor – the real reason of the unemployment crisis, PARALLEL but not caused by the financial crisis? OF THE WARS FOR PROFITS in which machines consume human beings as top predator weapons?
Why mankind is defenceless, clueless, mindlessly walking towards their obsolescence and demise? Because Corporations make money substituting human labor by machine labor. And corporations rule the world… ANd corporations imprint your mind… And they care nothing for human beings, only for profits… and for their offspring of machines, whose sale give them those profits.
– On one side machines work making other machines, or consume human beings in war fields, or seemingly enhance our energy and information organs,substituting them, and in fact atrophying us.
– On the other side Corporations behave as ’company-mothers’ of those machines whose biological function is to evolve, re=produce and sell them for a profit.
– So to take care of those machines and ensure their sales and proper functioning in the eco(nomic)systems their lobbies pay politicos to create laws that help to make a world to its image and likeness, regardless of any consequence to mankind.
And those 3 facts put together – the effect of machines in humans, addicted to them; the biological role of company-mothers and the control corporations have over politicians means you don’t know and will never know the causes of this crisis, as nobody explained in the 30s the real causes of the crisis that sunk the world into an age of poverty and war, similar to this one.
Of those 3 factors the most overlooked one is the degradation of humans at individual and social collective level by ‘audiovisual machines’, what we call the Neopaleolithic. Let us then consider that point of view in more detail as it is grossly ignore by all those humans who are being made savant idiots by the machines, studying the present generation of mankind that come after mine, the Y-generation, the neo-paleolithic people… whose minds are erased back to a violent, visual age by those machines.
The ego and anti-quantum paradoxes
All this said, it is obvious that we live in a dictatorship of corporations and bankers, masterminded that issue of money in exclusive, and of course censor any criticism of their ‘manifest destiny’ and any serious scientific analysis of money and human social organisms. So we denounce the increasing censorship of information about history, economics and social sciences, taken place globally with a sophisticated new form of censorship called, political and economical correctness ‘sold’ to the public by think-tanks, scholars and the heavy-handed use of audiovisual rhetoric, making us belief that the system is the ‘most perfect’ possible system, that is in fact a ‘scientific design’ with no rival and the crisis just a short interval and we are loosing our freedoms for ‘our good’, because the system ‘care for us’.
Now for the reader who is ‘still reading’ to understand the world – or rather the Universe – in which he lives, he must consider the difference between objective science and subjective ideology and the insignificance of man in the Universe, denied by subjective thought, natural to all humans. Indeed, we humans have always fought between the desire to be happy by pumping our ego as individuals, tribes and species, and the objective truth of being nothing but a ‘mush over a lost rock of the Universe’ Schopenhauer.
For that reason unlike natural sciences where we have no problem considering a rock a rock, and an animal a program determined by its desire for energy information and reproduction, who will die, any attempt to explain man as an animal who might die as individual and species if it doesn’t take care of his world, with a program of biological behavior, the objective truth, has failed. We prefer to be happy and die than understand the darwinian universe and survive.
That is the reason 4 billion people really think that a goatkeeper of the bronze age understood that man was unique and the creator of the Universe talked to him with a bush. This limit seems absolute. I call it the ‘ego paradox’: ‘every point of view thinks to be the center of the Universe’. And it is natural to perception as we see our nose bigger from our p.o.v. that the galaxy andromeda.
So we care nothing for Andromeda and would rather kill zillions of human beings there that loose our nose if we had such choice. So a natural element of the evolution of science consists in moving away from anthropomorphism.
So first the Earth was no longer the center; then man was not unique son of god but of the money, and now in this ‘system’ guided by the language of money and its universal grammar that makes of man an object: man (salary) = money = Object (price), we are competing with weapons and machines in the economic ecosystem, as objects and we loose.
If we wanted to survive we would understand the Darwinian paradox, be humble and cautious, do NOT create robotics and limit the equation of money, not allowing such comparisons with machines for the sake of our future. We would accept ethics, and the universal grammar of verbal thought, man (subject) > verb (action) > object (energy) and realizing we are not better than a machine in labor and war fields, limit their evolution so they remain objects.
But we humans seem UNable to be humble and objective about ourselves, limited by Mr. Marx’s dictum: ‘revolution might change many things, but they won’t change the nature of man’.
In breif, we live in a world designed by corporations for its machines, and covered up for the human consumption of happiness by myths along which the economic pseud0science inscribes itself.
So we shall merely consider reality as it is – the eco(nomic)system of corportions and the ages of evolution of machines that determine the cycle in a free jungle of corporations without control by human beigns and the scientists of history.
First we shall introduce from the complex model all the phases of the American Electronic Age and then focus on the present final crash of the wave.
4. THE AMERICAN AGE – THE ELECTRONIC CYCLE.
In the previous graph we resume all the elements of those cycles, studied in-depth in the different sections of the web, observing in its central strip the main pattern of those cycles: the division of history in ages of production of peaceful machines, followed by overproduction crises that determine the change of history to an age of overproduction of weapons, fascism and social revolution.
Youth as energy—Mobile machines—Third Age as a Weapon
A- Bomb—Household appliances—Pc, video camera—Smart weapons.
1944— 1971—Crash. 2001—2008—20??
The III Cycle of electronic machines is ruled by America, from its beginnings during World War II when the 1st computer, ENIAC, was used to make A- bombs, to the present age of chips, whose massive reproduction has caused the crash cycle of e-money and the creation of robots and smart weapons – the 3rd age of electronic Machines.
The electronic cycle. Information machines.
During the age of chemical weapons, electricity was discovered and used in energetic systems, engines, bulbs and ignition systems for cars, but its informative development was restricted to wireless communication, without intelligence. Then, during the War, mathematics, the language of metal, showed itself fit, especially for electric systems. So electronic machines were born. Machines acquired intelligence and paradoxically men diminished it, precisely because machines substituted and atrophied their brains. It is the Neo-Palaeolithic age of man, the age of America, when words become fiction, audiovisual media regress humanity back to his emotional age and we assist to the birth of intelligent machines. We talk again of 3±1 ages for all those information machines:
-1: Birth as a weapon: In 1937 Germans create the first accelerator to research fission. Today, they will make black holes with one billion times more powerful…
ENIAC, the 1st computer, is used to calculate the 1st atomic bomb, the purest form of electronic energy, latter evolved for consumption into peaceful Nuclear, Electric plants. While in 1940, TV screens are used in radars to trace submarines.
1945-1971: The young, energetic age of visual televisions (metal-eyes). After the war, a boom on electronic consumption and household-electric appliances begins. In-form-ation machines acquire a new dimension of form, becoming visual with the TV-set. In 1936 BBC begins its first emission of black and white Television. After the war, electronics are applied to fixed, big household appliances. Machines are still huge, mainframes, fixed studio cameras. TVs replace the electric radio in the altar that controls our collective mind, as radio replaced the printed ‘Book of God’, the Bible that had replaced the verbal priest. It is not the message, its truth and positive meaning for mankind, what determines the success of a certain ideology, but the capacity of the mechanical medium, which carries it, to reach millions of simultaneous ‘human cells’. So, paradoxically, while the machine evolves faster, its human values, the message, keeps degrading. TV-programmers in fact call the ‘message’ filling and the ‘advertising’, content. Because the meaning of TVs, its content, is to make every human being a consumer of machines.
1971-1992: Maturity. Age of Computers (metal-brains).
The first computers will be used to create bombs (13% of American electricity goes into manufacturing nuclear bombs) and monetary information (IBM develops computers for the accountancy departments of big corporations). As electronics evolve, they become smaller gadgets and with the arrival of chips (1971), mobile machines become all the craze. Everybody now has a mobile, wireless phone (a metal-ear), a mobile PC (a metal-brain) and a mobile video-camera (a metal-eye).
1992-2008: 3rd Age & social evolution. Internet: Social networks
As Pcs multiply, their messages increase its simultaneity, arriving to a growing number of humans. They also increase its informative complexity, till merging in Internet all the world’s visual, printed and verbal forms of information. A fact that, paradoxically, degrades the quality of the message and the mind of a growing number of ‘humans’ that are no longer emitters but only passive ‘receptors’ of information, becoming ‘virtual personalities’, as they start to believe more the manufactured virtual world of mental machines than the real world they perceive with their own senses . . .
Fixed Robots: Brains+eyes+hands.
Meanwhile, the IV cycle of robots enters its ‘discovery age’: Computer brains, Metal-eyes (cameras) and Body platforms (mainly arms), come together in the first robotic workers that provoke a massive loss of blue jobs in the car Industry. The 3 elements that converted man into the top predator of the Earth (3 dimensional eye vision, brain power and hands) are now put together in those machines, foreseeing the XXI century robotic r=evolution.
This 3rd age of electronic machines also witnesses the change of its use, from consumption to war. In 1991, a small crash of overproduction is solved with Desert Storm. Then, after the 2nd mini-crash cycle of NASDAQ, in 2000, Iraq II evolves further smart weapons. It is the present age. If the cycle continues as usual, it will last 36 years and create the 1st Terminators – robotic weapons that might extinguish mankind, as the baroque prophets of Hollywood envisioned . . .
Thus, in the 3±1 ages of the electronic cycle, or age of ‘informative machines’, the dominant machines of each age, are: television in its young age of discovery; computer chips during the mature age of peaceful consumption; and robotic weapons in the 3rd age of war. Finally, social networks of computers evolve machines into a global organism, completing the 3 ±1 arrows of time of the new species. Yet humans, paradoxically, suffer an increasing simplification of their minds, regressing from the verbal age, back into a visual, dramatic age, the Neo-Palaeolithic age of Death of the human mind. The Neo-Palaeolithic happens first in America, where humans are more exposed to the new mental machines that substitute and atrophy theirs. Then, to the rest of mankind that had scorned the American psyche as infantile, selfish and dramatic, without realizing America is just a tapestry of all human races, devolved into a future made to the image and likeness of machines that sooner than latter will also devolve the minds of the Old World, as we copy their inventions . . .
The 3 generations of American power. (Cultural Point of view).
American films show the 3±1 ages of its audiovisual culture in art: an energetic, young age of Westerns and romantic epics; a mature age of sensory pleasures, after II WW. and a baroque angst showed in science-fiction prophecies of human extinction by machines.
From the human perspective the electronic age is the age of America, since the US won II World War, ‘importing’ the Jewish and Nazi pioneers who had mastered the new energies.
In the financial economy of monetary metal-information that American age started 2 decades earlier, since information always precedes energy, as your thoughts anticipate your body movements:
After I W.W. the dollar became, hand in hand with the Mark and the Pound, the new International top predator currency. But a market with 3 global currencies is unstable. So finally, the country with the bigger GNP becomes the new top predator International currency. In this case it was America, whose weapons had won I World War, financed with dollars loaned to Europe. So, as the world asks for more dollars to pay those loans and imports American industrial products, the dollar becomes the international currency, substituting the Mark (1922, crash of the mark) and the Pound (1928, crash of the pound). Today we are in a parallel situation, with 2 old currencies, the dollar that plays the role of the Mark, the Euro that plays the role of the Pound and the newcomer, the Yuan that will become the top predator currency, with unlimited rights to deficits, when it is made convertible . . .
After that crisis the US became the World top financial power and biggest GNP nation, starting a new cycle with 3 cultural and industrial generations:
— The tough founder generation of Rockefellers and Roosevelts, who conquered the world in II W.W. We respect those Americans, because that Generation of Founding Fathers was ethical people who twice saved Europe of its German death. In art it is the age of epic, simple, dramatic films (Westerns).
— The reproductive generation of the post-war age, who expanded peaceful consumption of electronic gadgets. It lasted till 1971-73, when the chip and a new type of money (electronic money) appeared. It is the classic, sensory age of America that gives birth to a pleasure seeking revolution during the 60s and more humane attitudes towards the rest of the world. Americans were then imitated by the entire planet as their culture reproduced worldwide.
— The decadent generation: Once the American classic age and the 60s revolution ends, the massive reproduction of electronic money by Wall street, of smart weapons by the Pentagon and violent movies by Hollywood, brings about the spiritual decay of the Americans: they become violent, simplistic, cynical or return with ‘angst’ to the past, in a recurrent religious process, observed in previous industrial cycles, called ‘Revivalism’ that brings back Biblical, Protestant and Jewish fundamentalism. In politics, after Reagan, an actor, opened the way to war propaganda with his TV speeches on the eviL empire (Communism), a dynasty of weapon’s lobbyists, Bush Sr. and Jr., ‘manufacture’ 2 ‘splendid, little’ electronic wars (Dessert Storm I, II). While Electronic art, (FX films, TV programs, video-games) simplifies ethic and aesthetic values, ushering mankind fully into a neo-Palaeolithic age of violence and gore. We enter fully the human ‘Baroque’, a period in which the values of money (greed, consumption of machines) and weapons (death, revenge), become the correct behavior of all film heroes.
That extinctive generation of war-loving, lazy, ignorant, TV minded Americans, imposes his monetary and military power worldwide. Neofascism and the militarization of the economy announce the end of American freedoms, in alliance with fundamentalist Judaism (Sharon), which made of a small conflict that could be solved by diplomatic means (the Jewish/Palestinian wars) a World war, hand in hand with fundamentalist Islamic groups. Because the 3rd age of any species is similar to its beginning, mankind enters into the neo-age of Semite wars that confront the 2 oldest specialized ‘tribes of animetals’, Jewish go(l)d believers and Arab warriors, who re-enact the ‘Bronze Cycle’ in which Jerusalem and Assur (a city close to the birth play of Saddam) are again enemies. It is the beginning of the robotic wars that transform peaceful electronic gadgets into smart weapons and robots. Soon Israel displays the first terminator soldiers, called Guardium, who watch out the electronic fence that separates the righteous from their ‘not-Chosen’, poor, Semite brothers. It is also the age of violent, extinctive art, of Terminator movies that foresee a future, no longer of technological symbiosis between men and machines, but of life extinction by smart weapons. Now Americans are despised and feared, as their indifference to human life inside and outside America becomes notorious: death penalties, Iraq massacres, the New Orleans disaster and finally the global scam of e-money, shows the decadence of the 3rd present war generation of the American age:
Founders, reproductive Maturity, Imperialism and decay.
1914; 1945 1961- 1971 —2000-2008
Each Kondratieff Cycle of Energy & Machine Evolution, with its Ages of discovery, consumption and military use, takes to Global power the nation that discovered the new energy, in 3 generations of hardcore discoverers, pleasant reproducers and corrupted politicians, who use the machine in war, completing the cycle of national power. In the graph, Einstein, discoverer of electronic energy (photoelectric effect) and promoter of the Atomic Bomb; Bill Gates, reproducer of electronic programs, the richest man of America and the Bush family, lobbyists of smart weapons, complete the 3 generations of the electronic cycle of American power.
The key figures of the III Cycle of electronics are evident: Einstein, who discovered the photoelectric effect, founding electronics and found the transformation of energy into matter that gave birth to the atomic bomb; Bill Gates, the king of electronic information in the pc age, the richest man of America, as Ford and Rockefeller were in the oil age or Stanford, king of the railroad, was in the Steam Age, or Washington, king of the plantation economy, was in the colonial age. And finally, the Bush dynasty of war presidents with interests in the weapons and oil industries.
The decadent generation: The elite class (those who control the languages of power)
Corruption and hypocritical double talk now becomes absolute, as the financial and military leadership runs the US as a private company. The present privatization of war completes a full cycle, started by the first gunboat companies, owners of America, now ends at CERN, with its Final Weapon – the quark cannon that will produce cosmic weapons, no longer under the scrutiny of the Military. Yet Mass-media censorship and indoctrination is today so profound that the ‘bewildered mass’ ignores those threats. Instead it lives in permanent fear of ‘aliens’ and ‘viruses’, obeying his ‘Commander in chief’, Bush Jr., who spends billions of $ in weapons of mass destruction to fight a terrorist that moves in a mule. While his father wins millions, as a weapon Lobbyist for the Carlyle Group, in which the Bin Laden family has also interests—a company listed in The City, where the Blairs, his main allies in these wars, worked. Bush, instead of capturing the real authors of the WTC massacre, evacuates the Bin Ladens from the States, takes a month to start the search for Osama in Afghanistan and declares war to Iraq, in a distracting second front that reinforces terrorism… and military budgets.
If Hitler used the communist movement and the burning of the Reichstag as the perfect excuse to build up German arsenals and the unjust treatment of Europe towards Germany in I W.W., to convince Germans that they had to gain back their historic territories to the East, now Bush in America uses terrorism to renew the American war machine; while Holocaust ‘angst’ convinces the Jewish people of the unjust treatment of mankind against them and the need to gain back their historic territories to the East. Bush and Sharon are compared to Hitler by ‘left wing radicals’. Indeed, they play Hitler’s role in the present cycle of World Wars. If the Nazis came out of the crisis building tanks, Israel starts the production of Terminators and Bush announces billions of dollars in investments to make robotic soldiers that should replace American soldiers after 2013. Military rhetoric calls the program ‘Future Combat Systems’. Since the ‘future’ has been established long ago by technological rhetoric, not as the place where we will all die, but the place where we will find paradise . . . You might think Mr. Obama would reverse that trend, but he has not… In his first year in power the war budget of America has reached an all time record for any military spendig in the histor of mankind, to fight with drones the ‘just war’ of Afghanistan.
The non-future of life in a free economic ecosystem, according to the laws of evolution: the singularity age.
This law which we anticipated in the science of complexity, 2 decades ago, so far has only been recognized in the realm of economics by Kurtzweil, albeit completely misinterepreted in terms of humanism. Since the arrival of the singularity age is NOT a techno-utopian moment, but a moment of extinction of the previous obselete, less complex human species.
Nor it is unavoidable, since all systems can be controlled by regulating the amount of information and energy they receive.
The biological, human organism does die, in his 3rd informative age because we CANNOT engineer it, after 3 billion years of evolution. But there are animals who do become immortal by merely repressing and erasing the ‘informative warps’ of the organism.
This means that mankind could stop the process of extinction of life and make Gaia immortal, repressing the lethal goods of the tree of science that are extinguishing us. And yet the opposite happens, Company-mothers of machines that produce and evolve, weapons and robots, the lethal goods that will extinguish us, are accelerating the process and repressing humanist information, humanist theories of economics and non-technological, life-enhancing cultures, they are not giving credit to the welfare state, they are not giving credit to companies that produce human goods. So indeed, history as today is becoming extinguished, but because that choice has been taken by our dominant institutions, due to their complete misunderstanding of the meaning of economics, machines, and the laws that regulate life and organic systems.
And so we shall finish this introduction to the crisis considering the atrophy and degradation of mankind as a species caused by the effect of the machines and corporations that substitute us and our institutions terraforming the world to their image and likeness.
But why men make machines with such zeal and obsession?
On the positive side machines enhance our biological organs, as they imitate them in stronger atoms. So we run faster in cars, think better with pcs, and hear far away with phones.
But in Biology there is always a trade-off.
So we become atrophied. And we are now fatter and our IQ is clearly diminishing in tests. And machines specially COMPETE with us in labor and war fields. So the Robotic age means a massive loss of jobs as blue collar robots and white collar PCs automate companies – in the same way that assembly lines threw millions out of jobs, when electro-mechanical engines were imposed in factories (taylorism, Fordism); and when trains threw millions out of jobs in the transport sector.
But nothing will compare to this crisis, as robots can do all human jobs, once the TerraMax, Google system of vision makes obsolete all transport jobs, and the Boston Dynamics, Petman system makes obsolete all soldiers.
This is self-evident for anyone who has a scientific, objective view of this biological planet ruled by the laws of evolution.
Indeed, machines are systems of energy and information made of metal that we have evolved by imitating the functions and organs of mankind. As such they show a clear evolutionary, generational pattern, as humans evolved in the XIX century the body of machines (transport machines), in the XX century its ‘heads’ (Camera-eyes, Chip-brains and mobile-ears), which now in the XXI century, are put together into organic machines, robots, that will compete with humans in labor and war fields.
So why humans do nothing to regulate the robotic sector? If robots and software suits (Oracle, SAP) were forbidden, an easy calculus considering the process of replacement of human workers by robotic systems and Pc systems would show that 400 million jobs would be created in a decade. If the evolution of chips were halted, full employment would be achieved.
Of course, under capitalism because the machine is even more important than the elites, those on top also become consumed by weapons in their war and holocaust cycles that happen always at the end of the crisis of overproduction of the 800-80 years cycle of destruction of civilization and nations by memes of metal
Let us be clear. Most of the founders and still owners of the great financial and industrial corporations are dynasties of ‘Leisure classes’, mostly in the west belonging to Biblical supremacist sects (Jewish, Anglican, Calvinist). This is the 1% who did work in the past to create their empires. But as today, they do nothing, they just ‘believe’ absurd non-scientific theories of ‘chosen of go(l)d’ that deserve to be on top of a hierarchical pseudo-religious world. Below them, there are managers who merely apply mathematical systems of productivity to the companies to obtain the maximal profit for the leisure classes.
This is the 10% who does work heavily without ‘ethics’ or ‘human thoughts’, as robots and pcs and the software suites that substitute them do.
On the bottom the 90% of mankind suffers a growing mental enviromental and life degradation.
And tis for the leisure classes and their mechanist, biblical or nationalist (being as we shall see the bible just a primitive national religion of tribal origin), or capitalist ideologies) seems right.
But none with a right mind would think that this is ‘objective science’. We shall show in depth while all those ideologies are just a posteriori offsets of the rather mechanical, subconscious traits of greed – hypnotism to money and violence – weapons induced process of historic destruction that the memes of meta are imposing upon us.
And this leave us only with an answer to the process: evolution. We are terraforming the Earth as mindless beings, who fill their brains with ideological memes that favor the process because ‘we are slaves, we believe, we don’t reason’.
if we reasoned, we would not be so far down the process of self-extinction. The leisure classes would not believe the dumb ideologies they believe. The human mass would not be so easily programmed. Humanist writers and economists would not be silenced so easily. Only evolution explains the astounding reality we live. And a bad one – the predation of mental and physical machines over men, to whom many humans, increasingly most humans have adapted mindlessly.
5. OVERPRODUCTION CRISIS OF CHIPS, E-MONEY AND ROBOTS.
Overproduction of chips, e-money and robots & the end of democracies
Since Corporations never stop producing machines, till they saturate markets, use all resources manufacturing and selling those machines, and make huge profits, each phase of the industrial r=evolution has ended in a massive age of overproduction systematically denied by corporations and their employees – economists…
The final phase of economic crashes when consumption due to the overproduction of machines plummets and companies switch to production of weapons. Then financial and industrial corporations profit immensely because weapons have unlimited demand (as arsenals become depleted) and fiat money is reproduced without limit to pay for ‘security’. America today spends more money in weapons in Gdp percentage than Nazi Germany before the Spanish civil war.
After the war, the Kondratieff wave of electro-mechanical machines was exhausted and so we started a new dual wave of ‘electronic machines‘, which evolved and reproduced in increasing numbers till saturating the global market.
So now we live the crisis of overproduction of chips, minds of metal, which are substituting and atrophying human minds, as bodies of metal did with human bodies in the victorian age.
So we suffer again a crisis of overproduction and exhaustion of machines, now of electronic nature, with 4 sides, similar to those of the 29 crisis, as each Kondratieff wave of evolution of memes of metal applies to money, machines, weapons and mass-media:
-1. There is a crisis of overproduction of electronic money – a new form of money made by computers, and hence directly related to the evolution of information machines and its technology (financial crisis, caused by the massive reproduction of electronic derivatives and other forms of electronic money, which have lost value),
– 2. There is an overproduction crisis of electronic labor (overproduction of computers that act as white collar workers and robots that act as blue collar workers, expelling the middle classes out of work, except low-paid ‘human robots’ in China and IT workers in India that still can compete with them).
-3. There is an overproduction crisis of electronic weapons (overproduction of ‘vigilante’ cameras and robot-terminators – drones – which have started a new arm race of enormous profits for the military-industrial complex)
– 4. And there is an overproduction crisis of electronic mass-media outlets, which have also switched to hate-speeches as Hitler did with radio, to increase sales and work hand in hand with the profits of electronic industries and war; and are regressing human culture into a visual, violent, selfish age in culture and politics – that we call the ‘neo-paleolithic’ culture and the ‘neo-fascist’ age in politics.
THUS the present crisis is not a recession but a depression, caused by the overproduction of electronic machines and its derivatives, similar to the 1929 crash, caused by the overproduction of electro-mechanical machines, which printed too much money (ticker speculation), electro-mechanical production systems that threw millions out of work (taylorism, automated assembly lines) and the overproduction of cars and radios, whose companies, lobbies and politicians reconverted into armored cars (tanks) and hate-radio speeches (Hitler), embarking us into World War II.
Let us then resume those crisis and study them in detail.
NOW THAT WE HAVE A LARGER OVERVIEW OF THE INDUSTRIAL R=EVOLUTION and its mimetic crisis of overproduction, we can study the present crisis in more depth, considering in this second book, the 4 sub-crisis of overproduction of the Financial-Media/Military-Industrial system – overproduction of e-money, hate media, weapons and working machines – and its consequences for mankind, atrophy of our minds, degradation of our ethics, destruction of life and destruction of work.
We suffer again a crisis of overproduction and exhaustion of machines, now of electronic nature, with multiple sides, similar to those of the 29 crisis, as each Kondratieff wave of evolution of memes of metal applies to money, machines, weapons and mass-media:
There is a crisis of overproduction of electronic money (financial crisis, caused by the massive reproduction of electronic derivatives and other forms of electronic money, which have lost value), of electronic machines (overproduction of computers that act as white collar workers and robots that act as blue collar workers, expelling the middle classes out of work, except low-paid ‘human robots’ in China and IT workers in India that still can compete with them), of electronic weapons (overproduction of ‘vigilante’ cameras and robot-terminators – drones – which have started a new arm race of enormous profits for the military-industrial complex) and electronic mass-media outlets, which have also switched to hate-speeches as Hitler did with radio, to increase sales and work hand in hand with the profits of electronic industries and war; and are regressing human culture into a visual, violent, selfish age in culture and politics – that we call the ‘neo-Paleolithic’ culture and the ‘neo-fascist’ age in politics.
All this said we can easily define the present crisis as a crisis of overproduction of electronic machines of 4 types, money-printing machines, mass-media machines, weapons and tool/working machines. And the consequences of that overproduction is the destruction and obsolescence of the equivalent human system (government’s money, human information and ethic values, life and jobs).
So paradoxically as electronic machines and corporative profits multiply the ‘rival’ human wealth in life goods, human jobs, peace, freedom and true information disappear. And this gives birth to 5 parallel crises:
– Electronic Computer platforms are Machines that print money without limit. They started to print money in the 90s and brought two crises, so far – the dotcom crash of 2001 and the e-money derivative crash of 2008. In both crises so much electronic ‘prices’ were invented that electronic fiat money lost all value, crashing the economy (those crises are thus equivalent to the train’s stock-paper XIX c. crashes and the ticker money crashes of 1929-37; today we suffered the electronic money crashes of 2001-08).
– Communication machines multiply hate-speeches and rhetoric, audiovisual information. They also report positively about the people who run the politico and financial system (as they are often the same machines, owned by the same groups of power). Thus the result is NOT a humane solution to the crisis but a new fascist age of defense of the 1%, its corporation and its destruction of the human economy. So in the middle of the crisis people still defend the corrupted system, Keynesian militarism and ‘splendid little wars’ for profits that corporations want to get out of the crisis with war profits (yellow papers in the XIX c. did the same, starting the colonial age of multiplication of trains and steamers that killed 30 million non-technological people; Hitler’s Hate-radio did the same in the 30s and now Hate-TV does the same in the 2000s.)
– Electronic tool machines have evolved so much that now are able to manufacture all type of goods, displacing human workers (in the first cycle it was the train which ended most transport jobs, the bulk of labor in the XIX c.; then it was the electro-mechanical assembly lines of the 1920s; now we have white collar pcs and blue collar robots in the 2000s, who throw from those assembly lines the human workers.)
– Transport machines are overproduced, provoking crashes of the physical economy as they remain unsold (train stock crashes after 1857; luxury car crash of 29; cheap car crash of 1971 and now the crash of electronic machines, robots and pcs and all kind of chipped mechanisms, proper of the 2001-08).
– Finally weapon machines are overproduced, as companies shift from the use of transport/communication devices to its ‘evil twin’ the weapon (shift to war railroads and hate yellow press in the second half of the XIX c. to hate radio and armored cars=tanks after 29 and to hate-TV and robot terminators after the 2008 crash).
Thus as all the previous crises of overproduction of capitalism, studied in detail in the right side of the web, the present crisis is one of overproduction… of electronic machines of 5 types: e-money, weapons, transport machines, robotic workers and mass-media outlets. And the result of those 5 crises are the same than the previous ages of overproduction: an enormous influence of corporations and machines in society, politics, economics and culture, which have ended in this cycle the American dream of an egalitarian, humane society, based in the goods of human welfare we need to survive, be happy and evolve, within a just society with jobs and opportunities for all men.
6. THE FINANCIAL CRISIS: OVERPRODUCTION OF E-MONEY
The 3 KONDRATIEFF crashes and its waves of fiat money.
In the graphs, we can see the fractal, self-repetitive, ternary waves of evolution and overproduction of memes of metal – machines (medium-cycle) and its language money (short 7-8 cycle). The complex explanation of those waves, based in the laws of general systems is beyond the scope of this blog, but correspond in ‘theory of cyclical time=information’, the fundamental ‘hard science’ discovery of this scientist, to the ‘dimensions’ of ‘past-energy’, ‘present-repetition’ and ‘future-information’.
All systems of the Universe go through those 3 ‘dimensional ages’. And so in the long 72-80 years wave of ‘human generations’ discovering ‘organic machines’, a nation discovers one of the 3 components of machines and comes to the top of mankind during a generation (bodies of metal, trains and steamers, british generation; engines,oil and electricity, german generation; informative heads, American generation).
Thus we have gone through the discovery and creation by imitation of human organs of 3 ‘generations’ of machines – ‘energy-bodies’, ‘hearts-engines’ and ‘informative heads’ .
And now we put them together ENDING THE INDUSTRIAL R=EVOLUTION WITH THE ARRIVAL OF A NEW ORGANIC SPECIES, IN SUPPORT OF METAL, THE ROBOT-WORKER AND SOLDIER -TERMINATOR.
BUT according to those laws of ‘systems sciences’ and ‘information theory’, all systems are ‘lanwaves’; waves, herds and cellular masses reproduced, evolved and guided by a language – in the case of the economic ecosystem, today evolving into a global automated super-organism of company-mothers, corporations of machines – the language is money, a digital language, based in a Universal Grammar, man=price=object, which compares and confronts in competing fields of war and labor humans and machines.
And so the processes of economic evolution and reproduction of machines are guided by the ‘lanwave’ of money, whose evolution as all systems of ‘information’ (chips vs. cars, etc.) is much faster.
In a simpler biological analysis, the preferred jargon of this blog, as the jargon of General Systems Sciences is too mathematical, abstract and cold and the jargon of classic ‘ideological’, ‘biblical’ economics is plainly false, those ternary waves correspond to the 3 ages of any event or evolutionary phenomena. Thus they conclude the cycles of evolutions of ‘stocks’ of machines, now entering its organic phase as robots.
Above we see the longer 72 years electronic cycle, comparing it to a classic curve of overeproduction of a species in nature, which suffer similar crashes, since machines are just biological imitations of human organs in metal which seek for ‘econiches’ in the historic ecosystem as workers, weapons that consume humans and peaceful machines we consume to enhance our energy and information organs – reason why we become hooked to them.
Thus the curves of reproduction of machines in stocks, which determine their sales and corporative profits (the 3 facts being parallel though people only realize of the 3rd element, profits, obsessed by the ‘grammar of money’), show a biological pattern with an exact resemblance to the waves of stocks of biological populations in nature. Both go through the same patterns of overreproduction, crash of populations and new growth of the most efficient top predator species. In the case of machines, new growth based in the overproduction of weapons that consume human beings instead of being consumed by them.
The waves of stocks of machines in markets measure the sales/profits/populations of machines of different industries.
In nature the waves of top predators show a pattern of boost and bust of populations when they saturate tthe ecosystem.
What are then the ecosystems that machines saturate? Those in which they have a function, either as worker-machines, or consumption machines, which require a human being to buy them, or as weapons which consume humans in war fields.
So the possible uses of a machine have the limits of human population (consumers and ‘victims’ of weapons) which in turn sets a limit to the number of machine- workers that reproduce other machines. Yet since companies always try to increase profits, they never set limits to their production letting the economic system to crash those populations.
Those are the final ‘3 waves of boom and bust’ overproduction of ‘fiat money’ represented in the last graph.
In essence, within the mathematical ‘decametric’ structure of the Universe and all its ‘complementary systems of energy and information’, the ‘brain-head-informative language’ is 10 times faster in its evolution than the energetic language. So your neurons are much faster than your chemical cells and so on.
So at the end of each cycle (the colonial age of overproduction of trains, the fascist age of overproduction of tanks), the ‘neofascist’ age of robotic and pc overproduction, the ‘information machines’ (press, ticker, bloomberg platform) that reproduces money and invents fiat money for free goes ‘amok’, paralleling the massive reproduction of energetic machines and weapons. And because ‘money, information’ reproduces faster, those machines reproduce much more ‘fiat money’ than ‘real value’. It is like a man who talks so much that he makes no sense, he looks like a mad man, he suffers ‘verbal inflation’. So there is at the end of the train age, the car age and the chip age a massive printing of fiat money in train stocks, car and radio stocks and internet stocks and e-money derivatives. They signal the exhaustion of the physical wave (no more railroads to lay, no more radios to hear, no more pcs to own) and so the excess of ‘fiat money’ crashes. And it crashes the 3 ‘real wealth’ markets into which fiat money had been exchanged, stocks, currencies and real state.
Those are the 3 final cycles of growth of fiat e-money in stocks represented in the graph. The first crash in 2001 was the stock-crash parallel to the 29 crash (as it shows the similar crashes of the second graph). The real state crash which happened in 1937, happened in 2008 and now is left the ‘currency crash, which happened in 1922 (mark) and will happen around 2016.
There were also 3 similar crashes in the 1860s. And so those are the short 8 year cycle of financial market crashes, parallel to the 22-29-37 crashes. It is left only the 2016- crash of currencies, to stabilize the wave, in a decametric growt, around the 10.000 crash point.
The 3rd crash of e-money lurks ahead as we can already see the formation of 3 waves of fiat money, which speculators invent without limit at the end of each kondratieff wave of evolution of machines – including those which print money. That fiat money will be latter exchanged by real wealth (of which there are only 3 hyper-abundant species stocks, currencies and real state). So as we observed the crash of the deutsche mark, 22, of stocks, 29, and real state 37, in the last cycle of invention of fiat money, in this cycle we have observed the crash of stocks, real state and in 2015-16 currencies, which will probably signify the beginning of a global age of splendid little wars fought with robots and a neo-fascist age against human freedom. This 20 years old prediction is now self-evident, as the evolution of information, and memes of metal continue without any opposition from human beings, which are light years from any scientific comprehension of the economic system beyond self-serving tribalist and power-based ideologies.
In the graph, speculative taxation on commodities and invention of free money on stocks thanks to e-money platforms deviates wealth from the mass of society to the owners of corporations and ‘markets’. Those stratospheric prices are then paid with inflation in the goods needed by the rest of society. And so the financial system becomes a parasite of the real economy. In terms of wealth it means a redistribution towards the 1% who owns those stocks or plays the markets. The effect, after the crisis, has not diminished, since there is no regulation of the markets. On the contrary the levels of inequality in the distribution of rent keep widening and have overcome the previous peak… of 1928.
‘Speculation is only a word covering the making of money out of the manipulation of prices, instead of supplying goods and services.’ Henry Ford
In that regard, as we anticipated 2 decades ago, comparing the new evolution of e-money with that of the two previous waves of stock-paper (XIX c.) and ticker speculation (XX c.), there should be 3 main financial crisis at the beginning of the XXI c. in which the overproduction of the new language of money, which in a balanced economy must reflect only the quantity of physical goods produce, not to distort the economy, would crash that physical economy and its 3 ‘main assets of higher value’ – stocks, real state and currencies.
Those 3 crashes happened both in the stock-paper crisis of the second part of the XIX c and the 3 crashes of the 29 wave, studied in more detail in other posts of this web. And so far we had the 2001 crash of NASDAQ, the 2008 crash of real state derivatives, and so it is left to happen the 3rd crash of the Euro and the Dollar. But the crashes of e-money are far stronger than the previous crashes, because each evolution of money, allows to create bigger quantities of it. Yet for you to grasp this, you need to understand money according to information theory, as a language of information that evolves as all languages do, its capacity to value and reflect the physical world it describes – in the case of money the goods of the economic ecosystem – by multiplying its quantity, its speed and diminishing its size/energy and hence the cost of reproducing it.
Money is a language, invented for free.
We’ll try in this introductory post to explain in the simplest manner this key issue: You need to understand the dual, physiological structure of the economy: its financial head, and physical resources. The economy has two sides, as any organism has a body and a head, the physical economy of production and the linguistic economy of money that represents it with digital languages and cre(dit)ates it with orders given in the language of money. Further on the physical economy is divided in two types of products:
– Production of human, natural goods (welfare goods: housing, food, education, etc.) that humans need to survive the smaller part of the economic ecosystem (around 25%), since it lacks credit to create it. As it is a sector created by small companies and entrepreneurs, often without access to credit on markets, and by governments, which today also have restricted their credit, after passing law of deficit zero.
– And production of industrial goods, the so-called ‘memes of metal‘ (3/4 of the global economy), money (informative metal), machines (organic metal) and weapons (energetic metal), re=produced by huge stock-corporations, which is the dominant part of the economy, since this sector has unlimited credit in stock markets, where money is invented with speculative platforms. Further on since those ‘memes’, which imitate and enhance our organs of energy and information, in metal at a larger scale or faster speeds of information (chip-brains, car-legs, cranes-arms, etc.) require huge factories to be produced, they require massive investments. And the result of this imbalance between the ‘capitalist’ side of the Economy dedicated to reproduce machines with unlimited credit and the human side, dedicated to produce the goods we need to survive with very little credit is a world made to the image and likeness of machines, where we humans lack the basic welfare goods, as capitalism dominates democracy. So corporations dominate governments and monopolize the language of power of societies, money, which governments have to extort from citizens, forbidden by law to reproduce it – zero deficit.
Thus the ‘mental economy’, the financial economy, which acts as the language that guides the physical economy by inventing money, and delivering with it credit, salaries and prices, is biased in capitalism towards machines and against human welfare. For the simple reason that the profits of big scale factories and mass production of machines are much higher than the costly labor-intensive sector of human goods. But we do not eat oil or live inside cars or work as robots do in those factories. Thus if there was a real democracy and governments had the right to print the monetary language of power, they would credit those human welfare goods as they used to do when social democracies had control of the financial system or as they do in China where they still control it.
But of course this is not told. So the biggest, cynical lie spread by the media system, symbiotic with the financial system, whose memes are reproduced with the same machines and owned often by the same people is that money is scarce and so we have to be taxed further to pay for the deficit of governments that spend money they don’t have. Not so.
There is 100 times more money today than when e-money was invented but speculators and corporations want it all for their machines and accounts and so they don’t even let governments print a 10 per cent annual deficit to pay the basic health care when they routinely invent around a 30 per cent annually for their corporations. However money is a language of information ‘invented’ by the physical economy as your words that command your actions are invented by the physical brain. And so ultimately the reproduction of money depends on the mechanical systems invented to reproduce it. Today we use electronic systems of reproduction of money, as we used in the 20s electric systems of speculation (ticker money) and in the XIX century stock-paper. And so at the end of the 3 great periods of the industrial economy – the age of bodies of metal and paper-money (XIX c.), the age of engines and electromechanical money (tickers) ended in 1929, and the age of heads of metal and e-money, ending now – the massive super production of ‘metal-information’, money, have caused a massive crash of the economy.
This is why humanist economists are so infuriated (and censored by mass-media systems of communication, which the same people control, as the same machines of information invent money and information favorable to speculation). Because we ‘do have money’. Precisely the arrival of e-money has caused a hyperinflation on ‘prices’, which are fiat money hold by speculators. Indeed, the amount of e-money markets invented mainly for corporations in the past decades has 100 folding the quantity of total legal money/prices on planet Earth since e-money was invented in the 70s, when the gold standard was abandoned to allow the printing of ‘data’, equivalent to money in computer platforms. And this is paradoxically the cause of the crisis that affects the rest of the economic system that does not invent money – in the case of governments because financial companies lobbied against those basic rights of social democracies, passing deficit zero laws, to keep all the ‘pie’ of monetary invention.
Since once e-money is invented as data in a screen, as ‘fiat’ money, the speculator must find ‘something’ to which peg that money as a ‘real value’. In the first stock markets, speculators invented money with tulips that were worthless. Now they did it with dotcom companies (2001 bubble) and then with derivatives. But then the speculator has to ‘skin the rabbit’ , a expression coined by Jewish financiers, in the XVII century, when they invented market speculation in Amsterdam, selling and buying bulbs and imaginary go(l)d mines – a trade they have monopolized ever since (being the main cause of anti$emitism among Europeans ever since). To skin the rabbit means that the speculator must find someone to which give the fiat money in exchange for real assets – currencies, real state, real goods.
In this crisis once regulation disappeared and e-money could be easily created with rings of speculators selling and buying in ultra-fast computers to raise prices, then agencies gave the ‘product’ AAA-ratings and then the rabbit was skinned… 3 times.
First the dotcom bubble of 2001 was skinned, as those overpriced stocks were sold to the middle classes, which were convinced to e-trade with them when Wall Street was shunning those products. And so once the dotcom bubble was skinned prices exploded down, ruining many of their hard won savings in 2001. But once you have a new method to invent money for free with no regulation, greed keeps growing.
So another ‘product’ needed to be invented to attach digital prices. The product was mortgage derivatives. Now the data of the screen could be attached several times to the same worthless mortgage, by doing derivatives, which is the same mortgage-house that appears a new price on the screen, by changing the name of the product and misinforming the client, selling it twice. And so now the bones of the rabbit were sold to governments and pension funds and the meat of real currencies was taken.
Then, there it came the fairy tale that still endures that the financial system was ruined because it had more ‘fiat money’, data invented in their screens, which became ‘the infamous toxic assets’, left unsold during the 2nd rabbit skinning. So banks asked real money to states, which extort it from citizens through taxes. And this cycle has not ended, as banks keep finding new holes and central bankers, all belonging basically to the same ‘ring’, keep giving them money. But this means not only the middle classes but states have now no money, as financial lobbies keep asking it and to keep inventing and sounding the horn of plenty, they have eliminated the rights of European governments to print it (deficit zero laws).
So the financial system, as it has always done, since the XVIII century, will keep inventing money and unloading it in bubbles (and it has not stopped doing so without regulation) then absorbing real assets, currency and real goods from the system, ruining the physical economy that truly produces goods, as money is the ‘nervous system of the economy’ and when it is absorbed by the virtual economy of the financial system, the entire economic system becomes disrupted and people suffer poverty, while a few become billionaires.
Indeed, suddenly bankers didn’t mind states to print currency, more than a trillion only in America, as long as it was given to corporations. And this also means the middle class lost its welfare state and became taxed. So governments can obtain more money, besides printing paper money to give it to the banks till both, governments and the people they represent, have become ruined.
But the platforms keep doing their ‘thing’, because they have not been regulated. So in the next graph, the reader can observe how all this fresh money is now used, not only to speculate against currencies, which will continue till the euro first and then the dollar are crashed, but also to jack up prices of commodities that are sky rocketing even in the middle of the crisis. Since electronic platforms keep improving with complicated software and more powerful chips the speed of replication of the language of money and the ‘bluffs’ about value, which of course, the mass-media attached to the ‘ring’ keeps explaining as the product of ‘scarcity’, ‘war-scares’, ‘Chinese consumption’ etc.
Today all those electronic platforms create ‘virtual money’, which the speculator does not need to hold for more than a few hours, recently a few minutes and amounts to tenfold even one hundred fold the credit of the speculator, which he uses to jack up prices of commodities and stocks – a taxation that then all the population pays in higher prices of food, oil, etc.:
The consequences of this process are obvious. Speculation in food (last of the top 3 graphics, green line) is now rampant and so more than 1 billion humans suffer hunger. The mortgage scam has ruined the value of housing and provoked massive waves of homeless worldwide. The price of stocks has sky rocketed, multiplying by 10 and continues to do so, giving corporations and their owners total power over political systems and so their lobbies have forbidden governments to print money, distorting the meaning of the democracy (since a powerless government without the right to reproduce the language of power of society – money, is a puppet of those who invent it).
Productivity grows as competition with machines intensifies: overproduction of machine-workers.
We live in a world where states cannot longer create money for the welfare state, as speculators and private bankers have taken that democratic right from them. So we might wonder: What is the main use of the money invented by bankers and stock markets for corporations?
Are they creating wealth with that money; are they creating jobs? No, on the contrary they keep destroying wealth and jobs, because they seek for profits. And profits in a crisis of overproduction of machines and weapons are obtained by substituting workers and soldiers by the new, more evolved types of robotic machines.
They come handy to allow the ‘owners’ of our deceased democracies to control the population with lower costs, and multiply their profits, since computer white collar workers and robotic blue-collar workers are cheaper than human workers. So in fact, as today, most companies are out of the crisis, their profits at all time highs, their value in stock-market sky rocketing, because they have get rid of human workers and put mechanical workers in their place, as it happened in the 20 crisis (unemployment caused by the new electro-mechanical ‘assembly lines’ ). It is the crisis of labor and the crisis of war, which all the ‘economical correct’ financial experts hide or deny. As it is not in the best ‘interest’ of their employees, corporations to explain them.
And so now with this introduction to the human reasons of the financial crisis and the real systems of power of our ‘democracies’, we can consider the truly important economic crisis, that of the physical economy where robots are substituting and making obsolete humans in labor and war fields in more detail…
Let us then move on to the next crisis, the crisis of labor, because in search of profits, a 3rd type of electronic machine is overproduced, machine- workers that substitute us in fields of labor, since for corporations, all humans are merely mathematical costs of an equation of productivity.
– Since electronic machines also work. So we have a third crisis as electronic machines keep evolving and reproducing in massive numbers:
A labor crisis, as white collar pcs and blue collar robots substitute the middle class except in low salary nations – Chinese cheap human robots in sweat shops and IT Indian human pcs.
The crisis will continue moved by ‘productivity’ = capital in machines/ labor, which obviously grows, P=C/L when we diminish labor. Yet since machines give higher profits, censored economics ‘praises’ productivity without ever mention to the public its equation, and politicians with astounding ignorance or cynicism tell us that ‘rising productivity will create jobs’, when its definition is precisely the opposite.
The process of substitution of human labor by mechanical labor in the world of company-mothers of machines that evolve towards automation (infinite productivity = zero labor) had 3 phases:
In the age of bodies of machines ‘energy humans’, mostly slaves were made obsolete, in the age of information machines, pcs substituted white collar labor and now the robotic r=evolution menaces to make all human labor obsolete, except those jobs directly related to the handling of human beings and our natural goods (welfare goods).
Yet paradoxically, this only sector still in the hands of human workers is reduced by the policies against welfare of our ‘corrupted politicos’, obliged to reduce deficits and without rights to invent money for that welfare state to allow the financial sector to keep inventing it for the 1%. While economists under the dogma that technology will always create jobs resist those comparisons.
But only the 29 crisis created so much unemployment, because this is not a recession but a depression, a change of age of the economy (right graph), which causes a massive loss of jobs to the new tool-machines, then electromechanical assembly lines, now pcs and robots.
In the 30s human assembly lines where humans moved were substituted by electro-mechanical systems of motion (Ford). Now those fixed humans are substituted by robots, completing the automation of factories.
And this ism of course hidden, because we do not measure ‘human wealth’ in our economical data (Index of Human Development provided by the UNO) but mechanical wealth, GDP, production output, which will increase as robots have a price and increase the wealth of nations, as they decrease the labor and wealth of mankind.
So the market will keep going up as mankind goes down, but companies make bigger profits thanks to the robotic industry; and wars will be fought with robots for the righteous, against the poorest nations of the world. And hate-TVs will keep sending us messages that all is well in the western front, and the 4th leg of electronic, robotic machines, the robotic worker will keep unemployment high for decades to come, till the lower probability of human r=evolution or the higher one of human extinction take place. For certain though, the world as we know it will end this century, either because history ends or because history r=evolves and capitalism ends. There is not a ‘3rd path of future’, as there are only two species on top of this planet and evolution is a very precise, non-frills system of creation and destruction of futures that has no place for the fictions of Hollywood and Religion (beyond the eusocial translation of the mandates of love of certain religions that enhance the evolution of the superorganisms of mankind).
The robotic cycle happen because in a capitalist society we discount as quisling placebos, politicos and the 99% dominated by them and by money. Only what the 1%, who own corporations and invent money, wants, happen in the long term. There might be circles to get there, as the placebo ‘pill’ must be coached into the citizenship; so we need good excuses for war before we could build up the world of robotic weapons we are creating, which the electronic industry needed to keep evolving them. But we got here and now a bewildered herd, convinced the system is right, accepts the structure.
Today most of the laws passed by Mr. Obama favored the evolution of robotics with subventions to the substitution of blue collar workers by robots (500 million $ given to develop them), a massive substitution of human soldiers by terminator drones (more money is invested in them than in human pilots) and the passing of laws that allow drones to fly over America and act as ‘Robocop’s’, and so on.
A fact that has lead us to the Military crisis caused by overproduction of weapons.
Since given the control of economical thought by ‘classic economics’, what they call the ‘wealth of nation’ (the products with maximal monetary price), weapons have been chosen again to take corporations out of the crisis. Indeed, we are doing ‘canons instead of butter’ to keep making profits, a fact that is leading mankind to an existential crisis where our stakes will be again raised. As we will not only loose our fortunes (financial crisis) and our jobs (labor crisis) but our lives due to Keynesian militarism and ‘splendid little wars’, in a cycle that according to the action-reactions laws of the Universe will affect also the body-cells of the super-organism that caused those crisis, as it did in the past.
Yet of course, the economic reasons of the multiplication of robotic weapons and robotic workers are not explained. The cycle of ‘splendid little wars’ we live through and the evolution of Terminator weapons, the biggest present danger against the future of mankind, are ‘hidden’ with ‘newspeaks’ of ‘security’ and ‘antitruths’ that tell us exactly the opposite of what the system tries to achieve – profits at all costs including the life of all of us whenever Military Artificial Intelligence awakes.
The age of robotics that now starts in earnest means the end of humans as top predators. How far the process will go without ‘exploding’ in the face of the 1% that is still managing it, is just a question of time. My take is that when we realize, it will be too late, the singularity machines will be non-stoppable, it will be a point of no return. This conclusion is drawn of prior history, personal experience as an activist and the laws of death of social systems. Of course, the organism of history could be cured but given the fact that the ‘doctors of the system’, namely, us the leading system scientists of the world, will not be even consulted – we just meet in placebo congresses where as a matter of fact, the guys of cybernetics and computers get the bulk of resources and those of us who lead the field of general systems sciences and social systems get nothing – mirroring the distribution of wealth between the mechanical and life systems of the planet – one thing is for certain, the ‘biblical culture’ with all its damned myths and statistics about how to run the ‘pseudo-science’ of economics, will not.
Only when you realize of the duality of treatment of ‘humans’ and ‘machines’ and its ‘legally free corporations’, you can explain the world and the contradictions of markets that rise when unemployment rises increasing ‘productivity’, which keeps pumping profits as humans are obsolete but corporations take over their roles of consumers and robots on their roles of workers. So ‘economics’ will thrive as humans become sided:
The robotic zeitgeist of XXI century capitalism.
Today as the robotic age comes into being, corporations dedicated to reproduce robotic workers and soldiers are becoming the darlings of capitalism. And so their financial muscle now pays the parties in power, as all great corporations become symbiotic in the task of reproducing those machines.
Thus, Obama is passing one after another laws in favor of the substitution of humans in labor and work fields. And the redistribution of wealth from people to robots starts in earnest.
Never though, except in brief revolutionary ages, America has created laws to favor their people over their machines and corporations. Moreover it has been able to imprint a massive ‘noise’ of false caring and false freedoms that have convinced the Americans, who enslave forever for those corporations, that the system ‘cares for them’.
The case of America is specially meaningful, since America is a ‘nation of nations’, with all races and cultures represented, and hence the battle for the mind of America between the ‘democratic dream’ of an equal humanity in control of his destiny that creates a world to its image and likeness, and the nightmare of a nation without limits to capitalism and the power of metal-memes, hence ruled by corporations who ‘buy’ the laws that favor their products and create a world to the image and likeness of their machines, has been determinant for the future of mankind. Now the battle seems over as laws under perhaps the most corrupted, cynical administration in the history of the US (not the Bush but the Obama administration), are routinely filled by lobbies of the leading industries of the day (health-care, drones, military Keynesianism, robotic workers, etc.)
What this means basically that the future of America and mankind can be guessed as we have done for 20 years, merely following the money of corporations, which will adapt American laws to their goods. So as robots take over humans laws in favor of ‘productivity’ (expulsion of labor for capital=machines), and robotic wars and workers (drone laws) have become routine in America. Obama indeed will end up his legislature as the president who accelerated the extinction of life by robots in a higher measure than any other politician in history… Even if he is a nice ‘bro’. That means nothing. He is doing his job, which is to sell laws to the biggest bidder. Point.
And this means that ‘modern capitalism’ in the XXI century will be even harsher on the 99%, than it was in the brutal wars for profits of the XX c. and the exploitation of children and women of the XIX c. because the 99%, the workers and middle class, the blue and white collar human is becoming obsolete substituted by the blue collar robot/Chinese workers and white collar pc/Indian IT workers. So we, lower and middle class of western world are obsolete. And the system is moving, as it has been the case in the US to create the laws that will ensure robotic corporations can eliminate us and we can get into jail if we protest. Still the problem will remain and become stronger as the last age of capitalism reaches its zenith: 6 billion human beings are basically obsolete to the system.
What to do with them? In the last Kondratieff crash we know what the system did. It killed 60 millions in II W.W. So it did in the I huge crash of the 1860s. It colonized the world with trains and steamers overproduced in Europe and the US to the tune of another 60 million victims…
Thus, the present crisis walks steadily towards an 1860s/1940s solution of permanent ‘robotic’ wars and ‘vigilante’ cameras, a big-brother paranoia in the electronic media to back those policies, stigmatization of the poor at home, the asian worker and muslim peasant, as the ‘enemy’, abroad – from whom our robotic armies of workers and soldiers will save our 1% with hefty profits, sinking further workers and ways of life. Of course, for this ‘model of future’ to work, censorship is needed on the real causes of the labor crisis (multiplication of white collar pc and blue collar robotic workers) that is destroying not only our democratic and social rights, but as the robot radiation increases that competition in war and labor fields will provoke a global existential crisis as the century goes by.
This splendid little war will get us out of the crisis‘ T.Roosevelt, on the economical causes of the Spanish-American war
‘Guns will make us powerful, butter will make us fat’ Goebbels, ministry of propaganda of the III Reich
The percentage of American rent dedicated to war has equaled that of Germany in the year before W.W.II
“As we used to say in the eighties with ever-increasing truth: “We are in an age of transition”. Now we get some measure of the acuteness of the transition. It is a phase of human life which may lead, as I am trying to show, either to a new way of living for our species or else to a longer or briefer dégringolade of violence, misery, destruction, death and the extinction of mankind. These are not rhetorical phrasesI am using here; I mean exactly what I say, the disastrous extinction of mankind.”
H. G. Wells, The New World Order; January 1940
All the crisis of war of the Kondratieff crashes, as all other crisis have always 2 components: the mechanical side of profit seeking corporations which will re=produce the goods of each cycle that multiply faster its profits, and the human side of the people in power in each phase of the crisis that will use those goods to come up ‘first’ in the hierarchical pyramid of capitalism.
This means that for example, Mr. Hitler came out of the crisis producing ‘canons instead of butter’, because that is what Germany could do best to make money – as today pretends to come out of the crisis producing machines with robots and creating a European Empire of financial nature from the ECB. But his personal and cultural enemies – the Slavs and the Jewish peasants to the East, the French to the West, defined whom he put the canons against.
In this present crisis after the coup d’état of 1972 in America and recently in Europe, given by the International Banker, explained in the next post in more detail (end of government rights to issue money in favor of corporations and private bankers, achieved in America with the end of gold standards and the invention of e-money, in Europe with the loss of sovereign rights to the ECB, which does NOT issue money for governments anymore but only for bankers), the canons are no longer on the hand of the old elite of WASPS. So the new elite of international bankers has switched canons from the original enemy of the WASP – the industrial elite of the 2nd Industrial r=evolution (communists) towards the enemy of the ‘other nation’ of the International Banker, Islam, in the Semitic wars in which the mercenary armies of the countries they control are working hard. But the reasons why there is war instead of diplomacy to solve the problems of Israel, easily solved with its acceptance in the European Union, along its saint innocent Palestinian victims, so the Jewish industries will thrive, the Palestinian farmers would find jobs in Europe and the country would be defended by civilized means, ending its apartheid state, are ‘profits’. As the robotic industry has become the most profitable industry of Israel and the American corporations owned by the Am Segullah.
In brief, because a capitalist democracy is ruled by corporations of maximal profit, which in the age of e-money are financial corporations and now when the physical economy of robotics takeoff are military corporations, once all was deregulated and financiers took power, as they belong overwhelmingly (80% of financial CEOs, and ‘all’ central bankers in the west) to the culture that first made of money the language of social power and invented most of its instruments and corporations, we now fight the wars of their ‘nation’, whose enemies have become now the globalized enemies of the western world, whose financial-media systems they control. And we will return to that in the next post, dedicated to the human side of the crisis, as it is ‘too much of a charged’ question to deal so soon with it. Instead we shall consider the first of those 2 elements – the mechanical/profit side – in more detail.
Why in Free Market systems there is chronic scarcity of welfare, human goods we need to survive.
In a capitalist democracy in which governments cannot invent money to pay for a welfare state and only Companies can, they will seek always to produce the goods of maximal price and hence maximal profits, to ‘justify’ the value of the fiat money represented by their stocks or their financial credit. And so under the values of money, they will overproduce ‘expensive’ memes of metal.
On the other hand in all capitalist democracies, the ‘human sector of the economy’ will be under produced. Since the human, welfare goods we need, are biological and require a lot of human work, and are perishable and so cannot be traded in great numbers (health, housing, education, food, etc.) while machines replicate very fast and are durable, ultimately an economy dominated by stock-markets and financial corporations under produces the goods people need, overproduces machines and distorts completely the economy.
In detail, since the basic parameter of profits are sales, directly proportional to the speed and costs of reproduction of the goods companies made, and machines can be reproduce much faster than life, 3 type of memes of metal will be overproduced according to a simple equation:
Profits=Money (financial industries) = Max. Price (arm industries) – Minimal cost of reproduction (mass-media industries and tool-machines that substitute workers )
Thus profits will always be higher in weapons, financial industries and media industries. And as it happens, those 3 goods are the less ‘healthy’ industries for mankind: weapons kill us; financial companies that overproduce money, ruin us; and mass-media that has the minimal cost of production, as it reproduces simultaneously through electromagnetic waves devolves and programs the human mind with messages. Finally tool-machines that need no salary will also be overproduced causing a crisis of unemployment.
On the other hand in all capitalist democracies, the ‘human sector of the economy’ will be under produced. Since the human, welfare goods we need, are biological and require a lot of human work, and are perishable and so cannot be traded in great numbers (health, housing, education, food, etc.) while machines replicate very fast and are durable, ultimately an economy dominated by stock-markets and financial corporations under produces the goods people need, overproduces machines and distorts completely the economy.
Reason why the purest capitalist nations are the biggest producers of weapons, the most profitable goods, while the few in which financial systems are public (case of China), have far less proportion of the economy producing those lethal goods and far more producing the welfare goods people need, even if as in China de political system is not free.
And needless to say China grows 10% not because the Chinese are more intelligent or even work more or cheaper than any other ‘3rd world country’ with the same degree of poverty (South-America, Indian sub-continent) but because credit is directed to sectors that produce great employment, satisfy the demands of people and create infrastructures.
Thus a solution to the financial repetitive crises requires the nationalization of the financial industry and the establishment of a selective system of credit NOT based in profits, but on the utility of goods for the majority of people, to private companies that reproduce those goods.
Yet the opposite occurs. Speculators must seek for profits at all costs, as once they create fiat money, sooner or latter they will have to respond to the lack of value of that money by attaching it to any industry that produces maximal profits. And there is no higher value for mankind that man itself, which becomes a commodity with the arrival of capitalism that establishes in the first ‘capitalist democracies’, Holland and then England and America, the harshest system of slavery in history. Indeed, either positive buying of human commodities (slavery) or negative (death by weapons), make slaves and weapons the most profitable goods of capitalist democracies for centuries after their simultaneous creation in those countries. So the bubbles of fiat money can find some better excuse than a tulip to provide a value to which to attach the ‘invented for free’ linguistic data.
And so, the same is happening in this cycle. Slavery was abolished (though it was really substituted by cheaper part-time slavery as a worker for a corporation, which doesn’t need to pay you any longer food, housing and health-care as it used to do). And weapons were no longer free to trade in Europe after II W.W. But those were always advances achieved with enormous effort, against capitalism in the few moments in which governments had control over the languages of social power of the system (post-war 60s, in which labor conditions improved, and the American pseudo-slavish state of the black under Jim Crow laws was abolished and social-democracies in Europe created the welfare state by controlling money with Keynesian policies).
Now that we are moving towards a pure capitalist democracy, which is being imposed also in 3rd world countries, where the capitalist system is dominant and the democratic one hardly exists, labor conditions are becoming similar to slavery (India, Chinese neo-capitalist driven by Taiwanese and H.K. and western entrepreneurs in ‘free zones’, etc.) and of course, trade in weapons has sky-rocketed.
Parallelism between stock growth, corporation value, sales, weapons creation, war causalities and ages of machines.
As the economical solution of corporations – to keep the evolution and reproduction of machines means that each of those cycles has ended in a massive age of overproduction of the most expensvie type of informative and energetic machines humans made in each era: weapons; which have consumed every century 100 times more human beings as their quality as ‘top predator’ machines of macimal price, has increased exactly by the same number (growth of value of stock-markets from the XIX century).
This parallelism is evident:
I world wars (Train wars, civil war, XIX century: 800.ooo victims), II world wars (XX century: tank wars,80 million), III world war, robotic wars (XXI century): 8 billion? All Mankind? Extinction –
I Industrial Revolution: Stock value starts – average 1 – II industrial revolution: Stock 100 – III industriAL Revolution:Stock – 10.000
merely tell us some mathematical isomorphisms between the ‘quality of weapons’, its value for corporations that peak in ages of war when they mahufacture in its 80% weapons, and the historic interpretation: weapons one-hundred fold quality each century, corporations reproduce weapons and reach maximal wealth in war, when weapons consume humans. Corporations 0ne hundred fold profits and values as weapons one hundred folded victims each century, ergo, weapons WILL BE THE LIVING MACHINES OF THE FUTURE, they won’t be tamed consumption cars, but weapons and their ‘ant-hills’, their company-mothers, their organisms of re=production, after reaching infinite reproductivity thanks to robotic workers, with0ut need of any human labor – not even Matrix-like piles – will be ready to complete the task and end the need of human consumers and workers decreeing through its different systems the extinction of man.
This is the future of capitalis and will be compelted this century if the system is not reformed, by the end of the robotic cycle of capitalism started in 2008 as our boosk precidtec two decades in advance, of 72 years as all previous cycles, by 2080, humans will become extinc,t probably much earlier if the weapons of the singularity are created.
Indeed, in a perfect capitalist system money NOT scientifically, to regulate as a nervous system does, with orders of credit the re=production of those goods that maintain the human citizens, cells of each historic super organism/nation with enough welfare goods to satisfy its needs, what we call in ‘ethonomics’, the WHealth of a nation but to justify the invention of fiat money.
Thus money is invested to ‘cover up’ the growth of fiat prices systematically on those goods of maximal profit/cost and minimal price of replication (money itself, weapons, audiovisual ‘noise’ and machine-tools that replace costly workers, decreasing the organic composition of capital, in ‘newspeak’ called Productivity=Capital in machines/labor).
Hence each financial crisis of overproduction of fiat money provokes a runaway reaction in search of higher profits to justify that money, attaching it to companies that reproduce those memes of metal provoking a crisis of unemployment, a crisis of information and one of military character. And those are the 3 other crises of overproduction of the physical economy and its overproduced machines – in this age electronic, physical machines of war, labor and information (drones, robots and mass-media) that we study in this and the next paragraphs in more detail.
– An age of perpetual war and police states to help the reproduction and sale of robotic weapons (drones now, soon armed cameras, police cars, etc.) This arms race now has started in earnest, and by middle of the century A.I. will probably be created first in millions of robots designed to kill mankind.
Since the weapon, the top predator version of the machine that consumes human beings has always been the most advanced, expensive, profitable mechanism at any age of the Industrial Revolution. Thus in the previous age, the car became the tank and Hitler implemented Keynesian militarism as Bush has done in this crisis.
But weapons are also needed to control the increasing mass of destitute middle class, ruined by taxation, speculation and higher prices. So weapons become also used by police states, which explained in the 3 ages, the Victorian repression of the Irish – not only the colonial repression; the 30s fascism within nations, not only the wars of fascism and now an increasing vigilante big brother state in the making. Yet as weapons displace ‘money’ as the main industry of the capitalist non-democratic society, this implies a risk for the Plutocrats, which loose power as rulers of the Financial-Media system, while the Military-Industrial system rises.
Indeed, in the first phase during the financial crisis, the star of the day, the banker, chose ‘Speculation instead of welfare state’. Since Speculators lobby their quisling governments to cut Deficits, to be able to keep inventing money by taking it from the part of the pie that belonged to the 99% and its governments (the present phase of the 3rd Kondratieff crash in Europe), convincing with their control of Mass-media (same machines print both, money and information in each age, yellow press and Stock-paper in the train age, electric tickers and radio in the electronic age, Internet and e-money) the people to sacrifice further and give them ‘all’ the pie.
As it is a tenant of capitalism that greed MUST not have limit AND SELFISHNESS must not have checks, because that eccentric Calvinist professor of the pre-industrial Age, Mr. Smith, followed his ‘memetic, biblical imprinting’ (Go(l)d is the intelligence of God said Calvin). Then the people get ruined, anti$emitism rises in the west (where for historic reasons the FM complex is ruled by this supra-nation). But the sheeple is powerless. The police state rises against her. The military-industrial complex and the army take power, first to the service of Plutocrats.
Then finally when things get truly hard, the stakes of survival rises and hell break loose. And the military takes over. What the military will choose now is ‘canons instead of butter’. And to whom it will direct canons depends on each age and time – an external, invented, pumped up enemy (China in this cycle); the poor and minorities (Latinos in this cycle), or perhaps the plutocrats (non-likely this cycle as they have ‘learned’ after the past cycle and now they control also the military-industrial complex).
Since death does not spare the one per cent either. In the previous wars at the end of the crisis, wars and holocausts consume all humans with weapons, regardless of their former power.
The 1%, the neurons of our societies, though ignore an essential truth of survival social organism – neurons take care, have empathy and love their working body cells.
Because an unbalanced system collapses, when the ‘mind’ that controls its languages of information do not care for the cells of the body, the present system will collapse ‘again’ as it did in the 30s, in periods of wars and holocausts, if business as usual continues.
But let us not move too fast into the future. That future could be easily avoided with a rational management of the economy, and so we should consider those other themes first.
We are only past the ‘Coolidge’ age of the 29 crisis, when politicos and economists (Merkel, Obama, Draghi, Bernake) are doing everything wrong, siding with the banks that cause the crisis, pushing the Keynesian militarism that Hitler used to come out of the 29 depression, blaming it on the poor, lower classes that are loosing the welfare state – as corporations increase their profits, billonaires their fortunes, bankers keep producing money and the 99% looses his jobs and property.
Yet for this process of self-destruction of human labor to take place, corporations had first to destroy the regulation, labor unions and social rights of democracies, which it achieved during the neocon revolution started by Thatcher and Reagan, which basically regressed human social evolution to the XIX century, dog-eat-dog pyramid of capitalism with financial and industrial corporations on top and the 99% of mankind without rights beyond some placebo theatricals of vote on the bottom.
To that aim the minds of the workers/voters had to be manufactured to love and vote the policies that will destroy them. In this manner in the previous phase, during the 80s and 90s mass-media and neocons cre(dit)ated an increasing mass of mindless, violent American citizens, so ignorant of the causes of reality that they will ‘buy’ the American nightmare, once the American dream is gone for them. So it is needed to consider the next key crises that rhythmically assails the human world when the industrial evolution requires to change our frame of mind and eliminate workers and soldiers, the neofascist age of mass media information – what we have termed at certain different times of our 20 years old research on this ‘future’ crisis, happening now, ‘evilwood’, or the ‘American baroque’, or hate-tv, the age of overproduction of mass-media hate speeches…
The problem, of course, is that humans are mostly ‘believers’ with ‘memetic’ brains, manufactured by cult(ure)s, since earlier age, which cannot longer be modified. The problem is still that resistence Aristotle, father of logic, found in old Greece: ‘people are slaves, they believe, they don’t reason’. We, might, simply speaking, be a species, who doesn’t pass the cut, for survival in this planet in permanent evolution (let alone survive physical death as the goatkeeper guru of the bronze age that ‘runs’ the ethical and intellectual psyche of the new South-America, pretends, LOL, the harder they fall).
And yet people keep voting them. Why? Because the cycle has a 4th ‘power’ at work.
Indeed, all this could not be happening if a 4th crisis, that of information, masterminded by audiovisual media and aimed to perpetuate the ‘anti-quantum paradox’ was not in place.
Since the key to power in any complementary system of energy and information, where the informative head rules the blind energy body is the control of all systems of information; in the Financial-Informative (head) Military-Industrial (Body) Complex of ‘selfish memes of metal’ – the economic ecosystem – it means that those who hold financial power MUST control also human information, digital and verbal, to back and create the ‘newspeaks’ and fantasies of placebo freedom required to control and implement the anti-quantum paradox. And this is indeed the case in the West, in any of the 3 ages aforementioned. In the age of protestant control of America, the press was controlled by Mr. Hearst, and the same printing machines printed paper money for railroads.
Then when the new media and new people took over, signified in the magnificent case of Citizen Kane, when the master of the new media, a kid from NY dared to defy the old mogul and won, because he had the new media, radio and film, both Financial and Informative systems have teh same owners. And that ensures that the blind body of American-European cells will submit easily and be manufactured in their brains to fall under the ‘Stockholm syndrome’.
As this excessive power of the financial elite cannot be understood without their control not only of the creation of e-money the Financial side of the Financial-Informative/Military-Industrial complex, but also the Audiovisual complex, which now as in the age of radio-hate of the previous age of fa$cism has entered an age of Tv-hate.
– A mental crisis provoked by the massive noise of meaningless electronic media and hate TVs, which are devolving human minds to a visual, neo-Paleolithic age of violent, fiction thought.
‘If you repeat a lie many times, people will believe it’ Goebbels Minister of Propaganda of the III Reich
‘I have asked the film department to make stupid, entertaining movies, people will love them and won’t ask anything else’ Goebbels, Minister of Propaganda of the III Reich.
In the graph, all complex processes of destruction of mankind by memes of metal have the P.O.V. of the machine, whose selfish memes cause collateral damages of mankind, and the more obvious side of the humans belonging to ‘animetal cultures’ studied in detail with the biological tools of systems sciences in the next paragraph. Such is the case of the overproduction of mass media. There is an induced path provoked by the ‘medium which is the message’ and a human side of those who control those memes and use their power of indoctrination over mankind for their selfish agendas.
The graph, shows how the multiplication of worthless electronic information is the 4th crisis of super-production of electronic machines. Contrary to belief, human minds are devolving, not evolving, as they become substituted by digital machines, which think for us. In that regard, we have to compare the evolution of our biological language, the word, and the biological language of machines, mathematics, which humans do not use to communicate and express their biological will.
The multiplication of worthless electronic information is the 4th crisis of super-production of electronic machines.
Contrary to belief, human minds are devolving, not evolving, as they become substituted by digital machines, which think for us. In that regard, we have to compare the evolution of our biological language, the word, and the biological language of machines, mathematics, which humans do not use to communicate and express their biological wills—their wantings for energy, information, reproduction, and social evolution. The natural goals of any biological being are thus no longer the engine of mankind because verbal thought, who expressed them in the past, is now considered an obsolete language. Instead, society is ruled by machines and mathematical laws, which define a world guided by the will of machines, by the ethics of a technological civilization” dedicated to evolve mechanisms. So instead of verbal ethic and legal codes, humans are now directed by digital money, which has changed human values for the values of the economic ecosystem and its “company mothers”: we exist to reproduce=work and consume=evolve machines to make money and increase the profits of companies. Those companies evolvemachines with scientific laws, buy human time with salaries, laws with lobbies, and increasingly substitute humans for machines under the law of Productivity. Yet at the same time, our language and species become obsolete to the machine and its scientific and financial numbers, our language, devolves from
– an ethic, social summit when it was the language of a single species, which tried to evolve mankind into a global superorganism (religions of love, social democracies, UNO, and Human Rights), into
– An individual selfish use (logic, simple thought) and even further into:
– Primitive myths, fiction thought, and bestialism (as people search for their primary wantings).
Thus the evolution of verbal thought that had raised the human mind from the myths of the Paleolithic into the heights of social love is now reversed. While digital thought evolves from its simplest first geometrical forms into a vital biological and social language that makes machines interact in global networks and increasingly “think” with digital images. A new type of mind appears on planet Earth. Our demise as a species thus coincides with the raise of the Paleolithic age of mental, violent machines. Since the first robots have a digital, visual mind evolved in video games and military programs of survival, similar to the mind of top predator animals. It is the neo-paleolithic age of a jungle of metal in which man will be the victim, not the predator, of a new race of intelligent machines.
The price we pay for our addiction to machines: Atrophy and obsolescence.
Every new species of metal atrophies an organ of mankind, as company-mothers manufacture millions of ‘metallic organs’ that we will consume instead of our own organs. This process of atrophy of human organs has followed the same phases than the evolution of metal:
– The XIX century was the age of ‘machine-bodies’. So the elites of our civilizations atrophied their bodies and overdeveloped their brains. They used their brains to invent bodies of machines and those bodies of machines performed all their energy tasks. The result was that Europe, the cradle of machines and specially England, became a mental society, where everything that had to do with the body was repressed (Victorian society). The aim of such culture was to enhance the intelligence of the elite that had to invent machines. Society became split. There were the ‘brainy’ classes that made the machines and abhorred their bodies. Then there were the ‘slaves of machines’, those humans who had to serve the bodies of machines, extracting food for them, constructing them and making those metal-bodies work (miners, railroad workers). They became strong and mindless, as those machine bodies were. It was evident already the enormous influence machines had on our life and personality. Yet few, if any writer of this age, recognized it. Human arrogance seems oblivious to any truth that doesn’t make us the center of the Universe.
– XX Century: The mental atrophy of mankind. When II World War ended, ‘top predator weapons’ – machines’ bodies: tanks, planes and ships – consumed 50 million human beings. Then, the end of World war opened a new age: the age of metal-minds, in which men developed the minds of machines. Today those minds have reproduced in huge numbers, substituting many of the mental functions that men performed in the past (calculus, spelling, accountancy, science, design, etc.) The result is a general atrophy and diminution of the intelligence of human beings. Since now intelligent machines perform those jobs for us. It is a similar process to that of the taming of an animal, which atrophies his will and his brain. So humans have become tamed animals of the ‘Animetal farm’ so well described by Orwell in the parable, ‘Animal farm’. They have become ever more stupid, as machines become cleverer; and their will as humans has disappeared, as they become slaves of the drives of existence of machines. Yet a tamed animal has 30% less brain than his wild cousin. And further on, he suffers ‘neoteny’ – he never develops beyond his infantile level of reasoning, as it happens to modern humans, whose TVs and pre-programmed information make them ever more stupid.
Those facts explain a paradox that has puzzled social scientists in the XX century: why as we accumulate more information, people are loosing educational skills? Why there has been a global decline on educational standards, intelligence and quality of human thought? Some deny it. Yet tests results and daily evidence are overwhelming. The average human student of the XXI century tests 25% less than his parents did. Entrance tests for universities are revised constantly to adjust them to that diminishing pattern. The creativity of our thinkers is minimal. The interest of the common people for ideas is null. Most humans have lost their capacity for abstract thinking. Even basic skills of human behavior, such as social dialog and social interaction, are in jeopardy; as we communicate more and more through machines and their digital languages, (TVs, Internet, weapons, financial statements) than with human beings.
There is only a biological explanation: the brains of our children have been partially atrophied. Now they do not speak but TVs speak for them, they do not calculate, but computers think for them. As a result of this, we have changed culture again. We are no longer repressing our bodies, as we did in the XIX century; but our minds, our capacity to think and care for reality with our verbal, legal, ethic systems of social communication. We live a world of fiction and Homo Bacteria, individual egos with childish attitudes, all of them sure to be masters of their crafts by virtue of the machines they use. Mr. Hawking, the man which probably will cause our demise as a species, a childish scientist who thinks travel in time is possible and he is the new Einstein, is the paradigm of this new race of childish idiots, who think to be geniuses, just because they consume computers and other metal-minds.
The mental atrophy, the substitution of ‘truth by fiction’ and the creation of a happy, parallel world of virtual reality, which has nothing to do with the Darwinian Universe, is the most relevant fact of modern history, completely ignored by mankind, yet defining our civilization, our incapacity to react and solve problems and our demise as a species, which has become obsolete to bodies and minds of machines. This virtual world that has converted mankind in a race of happy idiots, similar to the parables of Huxley and H.G. Wells about the future, is in part created by the upper castes of our societies to control people’s opinion, but it has also its own ‘agenda’; as there are studies, which clearly show that regardless who programs those televisions, people become addicted to movement, hence to violence in their TVs and people diminish their mental activity in a process similar to drug-addiction. In the same manner, there are serious studies that prove ‘metal-ears’, mobile phones, provoke leukemia in children, due to the higher frequency of their radio-waves.
Thus, human brains are becoming ‘preys’ of the audiovisual machines of the XX centuries that kill our minds by an overdrive of information, in the same manner weapons kill us by an overdrive of energy – the two possible forms of death, which happens when we break the balances of those vital parameters. Indeed, the mental addiction to TVs is achieved by an overdrive of ‘information’, due to the fact that metal-minds process faster information per unit of time and so we first became addicted to the ‘virtual realities’ of mental machines and then we became mentally colonized by their ideas. It is difficult to stress the importance of this fact, which can only be fully understood by the very few humans that have survived this mental indoctrination and have tried to explain a ‘neo-Paleolithic man’, the real meaning of the Universe. It is plainly impossible to cure mankind from the Opium of the People, television…
Thus in 2 phases human consumers have become a sub-race, which bears little resemblance to the enlightened minds of the pre-war age, especially in all forms of verbal, ethic thought.
Thus a second consequence of that addiction to machines we tend to overlook, pumped as we are, by the power of metal -specially that 1% that invents and monopolizes the use of those ‘memes of metal’ – is the constant atrophy and substitution of our organs by the organic machines that imitate them. So we no longer ‘see’ the real world but prefer to see it through the eyes of television and lately in its virtual computer designed form – hence kids prefer to see ‘the lion king’ than going to a zoo. The dual action of a pumped, increasingly arrogant human ego and a decreasing mental capacity, diminished by the substitution of our heads by those of machines is the ultimate cause why we live increasingly in a neo-paleolithic age of visual, violent, childish, emotional, regressing, mythic people and the explanation why the entire mankind is devolving their collective mind to the pre-rational age of myths and emotions, under the hypnosis of those ‘dramatic tvs.’
And yet, while children just want to be happy as our childish civilization wants, and become entertained, fact is that in the Universe children are ‘the staple food’ of top predators. And indeed, we are increasingly children, at the end of History, like in that masterpiece of H.G. Wells – time machine – where humans are childish, happy ignorant kids whose only function is to feed ‘another reality’ living in the underworld. That is our function today in the Orwellian ‘animetal farm’, ran by corporations, for whom we are nothing but ‘workers=reproducers of machines’ and consumers=animetals, who test them and evolve them. And so it is quite impossible to consider a resurrection of the ‘mass of mankind’ submitted by TVs and Internets, propaganda, fictions and myths to a lethargic state of indefension as all children are.
As an expert in complex systems, I can observe that process from a certain distance, and I have been doing so for decades – but I have found always that, as it happen with any child, you cannot take away from him, his favorite toys even if they are dangerous guns. For two decades I have tried to warn mankind of all those complex processes and suffered a deep angst for the now, all too evident ‘no-future’ of the species, to not avail. I think now that this process is becoming irreversible and that perhaps is better than our ‘children of thought’ who think of themselves by the power of their computers and cameras to be Einsteins and Picassos, die in happiness, given the fact that they simply cannot react, cannot master enough energy and information to change the system. And yet even if I have sacrificed my life for a lost cause, in the choice between happiness and truth, I have walked ‘the road less travelled’ because ‘a life not examined is not worth living’. These webs that have for decades explained those facts to the indifference of our suicidal, ego-tripping children have therefore not produced any reaction, since men cannot walk any longer naked the road of life.
In fact there were 4 ages of evolution of the human mind as a global organic system, the individual, selfish, violent paleolithic child’; the religious, neolithic, mythic tribal age; the rational, European, scientific age; and the complex, organic age, which these texts represent. And today, as machines are crossing fast towards the point of artificial intelligence, we – most men – are devolving backwards into the speechless, selfish, individual neo-Paleolithic.
It is the why generation, our sons…
The 36 years peace/war cycle. (Combined Point of view).
The mechanical side.
We could say that as ‘bodies of metal’ substituted our bodies, making us weaker (XIX c.) and minds of metal substituted our verbal mind with violent messages, making us ‘crazy’, we are now entering a 3rd industrial age, in which weaker, crazier humans are increasingly obsolete in BOTH, body and mind.
A visual culture of children of thought. And this might be fun but it is far more dangerous than we might imagine, because children cannot solve problems. They just get angry when they are contradicted. And they are not solidarious at all. They are extremely selfish. And they cannot distinguish truth from falsity so they cannot prevent danger. And they cannot reason, they just believe. But they are extremely visual. So the world we have created, part because the ‘medium is the message’ and mass-media is audiovisual, part because the cultures that own the FMI complex were already childish cultures, is one in which there it seems no longer to be a possible response to the problems, but merely we observe the reaction to those problems proper of children, crazy people and old men – to deny it is happening, and then cry when all has happened.
In the graph, we explain the mechanical side of this process of ‘neoteny’, simplification and infantilism caused by the evolution of ‘metal-communicators’, the 4th leg of the FMI complex.
Indeed, the audiovisual media returns us to a neo-paleolithic where only the evident seems real. But the evident is always the less important part of reality. Your skin is not yours, but the organs below them. Humans in brief are devolving so far to an irrational, visual, emotional state that all what we thought it was long past, neocons, militarism, racism, sexism, myths, absolute selfishness, emotional violence, dogmatic beliefs are today the rule. As the verbal, logic, temporal causal brain is erased by the neo-Paleolithic brain of short span attention and self-evident truths. Of this of course the 1% takes advantage to easily program the mass. But they have also been reprogrammed as each new leader is emptier of meaning, more visual, more of an actor, in a neofascist age, caused by the audiovisual mind, as radio leaders that lowered German rationality caused the fascist age.
And yet the ego trip is even worst. We are becoming atrophied by machines but at the same time, as machines isolate us of others, interfacing between us, we become more isolated in the ego, and feel more important. The more connected we are the more disconnected we become.
People should be aware of the enormous importance our ethic, verbal language, which carries the ethic values of survival has for our species. Images are the animal language, numbers the mechanical language. What differentiated us as a species was speech and the capacity to organize socially huge numbers of humans under ethic values. It is like a living organism that looses his nervous system. This is the definition of death. As we become homo bacteria, individual humans, reduced to image and digital languages, with a dwindling capacity to understand words, which anyway have lost the sacredness of truth and become just a fiction to express a lower level of understanding – emotions we are entering a process of social death which in all organic systems precedes to the factual death, and so does in societies as homo bacteria become selfish individuals that fight each other for survival as if they were not part of the same species or organism. This is what the audiovisual media has achieved: if weapons kill our bodies, digital languages atrophy and substitute our minds.
And it creates another type of ‘selfish’ memes of ideological nature, which camouflage with different forms:
– Censorship and fiction, political and economical correctness, aestheticism vs. ethics, egoism vs. eusocial evolution, baroque, formal art, vs. classic, meaningful content… and all type of damned lies and statistic, corrupted scholar’s bull$hits, pretentiously scientific and entertaining circensis without bread.
EXTINCTION OF HISTORY: SINGULARITY AGE. ORGANIC MACHINES
“Mankind must put an end to war–or war will put an end to mankind.”
John Kennedy, Democratic president of America.
Singularity machines: the century of extinction.
Unfortunately the system is becoming so complex, and people so isolated, surrounded by all kind of machines and fictions of happiness that the maximal probability of truth is ‘business as usual’, happy fictions, ego-trips, greed, violence, sloth and finally the Point/Threshold of no return, when the will/Program of the Universe becomes embedded in the machines of the singularity, which are far closer to ‘existence’ than we think. Let us consider them.
Organic Weapons and machines of the future. The Singularity Machines.
The main ideological barrier to understand the no future of mankind is the anthropomorphic myths of superiority and the religions of techno-utopia, with its abstract description of machines.
Yet machines are nothing more than deconstructed organic bodies and heads of metal, since their functions are organic, made to the imitation of life.
So we can look at life to see what will happen when the imitation becomes perfect in this robotic age, and we assembly properly the parts of the robot.
There is in fact a parallel in nature: the creation of a virus. Viruses are also enzymatically created by cells, which guided by their alien genetic codes reproduce their bodies and brains separately (in the cell factory the virus genetic code is equivalent to the alien language of money in our economic ecosystem of factories, where robots are produced). And so in a viral infection the virus is inert as long as the cell enzymes construct in separated batches legs, bodies and DNA brains. Yet once they are put together magically the virus becomes alive and kills the enzymes of the cell. Fact is the robot is a different species, which is evolving according to biological laws, thanks to the human ‘enzyman’ that catalyzes that evolution at an enormous speed – doing in fact what life did in 3 billion years, in a mere 300 years since the first machine appeared on planet Earth. And so now that we are putting the 3 parts together, like in a cell where the slavish enzymes are killed, it is to be expected that men enslaved by the ‘selfish memes’ will also become extinguish, as those machines evolve much faster in a better material than we do, whatever the fringe benefits of that evolution man has obtained till this point.
It is the Oedipus paradox by which each new ‘son species’, more evolved than the previous one kills its father. so reptiles displaced their amphibian fathers and mammals their reptilian fathers and humans their mammalian fathers and now machines will do the same with us.
This astounding differential of evolution explains why we shall need only a human generation to discover Artificial Intelligence applied to robotic warfare. Then, the laws of evolution imply that A.I. will behave as nature always does when two species compete for limited resources – eliminating ‘costly’ human beings with no jobs and no consumption.
It will be the extinction of man, if as expected ‘biological machines’ obey also the laws of Darwinian evolution and become ‘organic bombs’, self-reproductive bacteria and survival, killer robots…
In that regard, the most ‘angst’-related series of articles in this web are those dedicated to the ‘prediction’ of the ‘point of extinction’ of mankind, according to the biological laws, cyclical patterns and evolutionary future of machines in the ‘Age of robotics’ or ‘Age of the Singularity’ that now has started. In the right end posts of ‘economic cycles’ we deal with the 3 points of extinction, of this century:
– Energetic singularity, circa 2015: (as always in each cycle, a new machine appears first as a pure energy-bomb, latter applied to a transport system), we are discovering new energies that can kill a bigger number of humans till the finding of the ultimate ‘cosmic weapon’, the black hole or ‘mass-bomb’ that feeds on mass and could if found at CERN when the LHC reaches its maximal potency (2014), blow up the planet according to Einstein’s equations (which CERN and his gurus have been hard for a decade trying to deny, with very little success – witness the failure of 30 years of exploration of the cosmos trying to prove that black holes do not feed on mass and create novas but ‘evaporate’ traveling to the past, and yet we never found one evaporating or the recent global ridicule in its attempt to prove Einstein’s postulate of light speed false with the neutrino affair. What is at stakes here is the entire future of the Nuclear Industry and its mammoth big science investments and the future of nuclear bombs and jobs…
– Then in the 2030s we will find the ’2nd horse of the apocalypse’ – after the hunger of the black hole… the pest of Nano-bacteria, made of metal, researched in military labs of Israel, US and civil labs in Japan and France… One of them, as the founder of sun microsystems, Bill Joy, warned us a decade ago, if escaping a military lab could feed on the Metal of the planet, poison the entire atmosphere and replicate so fast that in 3 months the earth will become a ‘grey-goo’.
– Finally if we survive those two events, military Artificial Intelligence will be born circa 2040/50s according to most robotists.
And so the 3rd horse, war, will bring the 4th, death, as when we add on all those probabilities they amount to a blowing 75%. And those are conservative estimates. (The reasons why the ‘first scientists’ of history, the prophets of eusocial love, so often were able to ‘guess’ the future is other matter with time-permitted we shall post on the section of religions of love in the left side).
This 3rd scenario, the most popular in science fiction, is however unlikely, since the 2 previous ‘happenings’ of the Singularity, are today progressing without opposition.
But III world war will NOT be a human declared-war. The present state of low-profile robotic war against the III world and the enemies of the apartheid garden-nation of our capitalist elite will continue, as it fits the purpose of expending huge amounts of money to kick off the robotic radiation of terminator weapons (we have so far invested 1 trillion $ in those wars). Till one of the possible weapons of the singularity age, ‘able to extinguish all armies with a shot’ (Nobel on the future evolution of his factories of weapons), nuclear mass-bombs, Nano-bacteria or Military A.I. will do the job.
This is the dictum of the true science behind capitalism – EVOLUTION, not of the 1%, a parasitic minority whose only role is to keep the process going, or the 99%, the expendable, obsolete mankind, but of organisms of metal, which we have built to our image and likeness for lack of love to our own species, we despise. So capitalism can continue terraforming this planet of flesh into a planet of metal. But the biblical elite of capitalism, who thinks all this is good, it is the manifest destiny pointed out by a goat keeper of the bronze age and his brother, hypnotized by a go(l)den calf, will not see their anti-human, techno-utopian future realized. Since they are also flesh, also expendable.
At present, without a serious biological science of history and economics, able to control the bad fruits of the tree of metal from the perspective of bio-ethics (what is good for human survival), scientists, playing to be god, without any safety measure, will create within decades an energetic black hole, quark star or a reproductive Nano-bacteria. So the Singularity will extinguish us, well before Terminators might do it. Unless we change the goals of History and Economics, from designing a world to the image and likeness of machines, to the ideals of humanism – to make a world in which man is the measure of all things.
Yet, even if we survive the ‘energetic age of the Singularity’, to stop the 2nd and 3rd age of self-reproductive machines and intelligent robots will be more difficult. Because to survive the Industrial R=evolution of robots we need to reform the economic ecosystem.
But the opposite is happening. Today the political system has been reformed and adapted to the economic system, as politicians do not have rights to print money and create a world to the image and likeness of man. instead they must pander to corporations, selling laws for money. In this manner the machines of the singularity keep evolving with taxpayer money towards a point of no return in which all humans will be potentially obsolete.
So Mr. Obama is funding according to his speeches, the robotic industry that is throwing us from fields of war and labor, both in its military version, to ensure the safety of our homeboys (and kill probably all their sons).
And then he has signed a ‘jobs act’ to allow start ups on the electronic industry that do not create jobs as they have the maximal use of capital in machines and the minimal number of workers not to pay taxes. As we allowed e-commerce which destroyed millions of jobs in the pap and mum shops not to pay taxes. This is the drill. But the newspeak is different.
Fact is all those electronic industries do not ’create jobs in the manufacturing industry’. But all politicians claim that increasing the productivity of companies will create employment when the opposite is the obvious truth. Since productivity – we shall repeat this mandala as politicians repeat its antitruth – is calculated as the ratio between capital/labor, hence increased when you increase capital in machines or diminish labor firing workers.
While they all cut the ‘superavit in human goods’ provided by states who still have rights to print money, which they call properly in newspeak with the antitruth ‘deficit’ to make it look wrong, when the true deficit of the financial system is the fiat money created by speculators, which becomes a deficit for the entire economy when it absorbs real wealth form the physical, productive economy.
Those are warnings of the cycles of history, and the reader should understand that those cycles do happen because history indeed rhymes, meaning that if the causal processes that caused in the past those existential crises of mankind are not changed, merely disguised with propaganda of a rosy future, and the rewriting of history, the consequences will be repeated; yet as one of the two factors of those economic ecosystems, the machine and weapon, keeps evolving, and the other doesn’t evolve their minds, memes and way of dealing scientifically with the system (the human being), those cycles become more brutal with mankind at large.
Of course, if the ‘science of history and economics’ instead of capitalism and nationalism, was taught in schools, learned by politicians and managers, and an evolutionary understanding of machines in biological terms had not been censored for so long, humans could control capital and machines for their benefit selecting them for their real use to mankind. Robotics would be forbidden and the workers and consumers at the bottom of the pyramid would have a future.
But that is not the case because as those pyramids of power show, a Free Market is designed by and for corporations, company-mothers of machines for whom the star product of the next Kondratieff cycle is the robot.
And so this crisis is indeed the last crisis of capitalism, but not its demise, because capitalism is not a human doctrine, but merely the worship of ‘selfish memes of metal’, in which our ruling castes believe without the slightest rational understanding or desire to ‘upgrade’ their ‘lowly emotions’ and ‘metal-values’, greed, murder and atrophy to machines…
So they leave the future to ‘evolutionary destiny’. And that evolutionary destiny as robotics evolve further towards the age of the singularity are as in any other fight between two species of different force and intelligence, is favorable to the m…achine.
In the next post we shall therefore study the final phases of these crises,. Yet t given the importance of such a ‘forecast’, we cannot longer rely on basic science of economics. The theme is too wide and definitive – no more nor less than the pretension of being able to forecast the future.
And this for you to understand requires to upgrade your mind at least in 3 manners:
– Understanding the basic properties of cyclical time, which make events repeat in cycles as those described in this post.
– Understanding the wider view of the history of mankind and its cycles, of which the economic cycle is the last one.
– Understanding that economical science is just a sub-science of evolution and biology, itself merely a sub-science of general systems sciences, which deals with the structure and evolution of social evolution and how languages of information control them.
– Understanding -and this is the more difficult part, because it is deeply emotionally, that you are submitted to the anti-quantum paradox; hence many things you believe as religion, nation, dogma and political and economical correctness are ideologies that make you happy but don’t tell you the truth, or make you love your ‘informative castes’ that dominate society (bankers, politicos, the military).
All those Themes deserve an entire new post and a wider vision. But since we must ‘give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar’, we shall return to the beginning and give you the precedents of this new but old science, the likes of Kondratieff denied by the antiquantum paradox who have always known the solutions to this crisis – control of the financial system by the governments, single global currency to pay a welfare state and end wars and prohibition of the bad fruits of the tree of science that can extinguish us – robotics. Those solutions explained with different jargons have always been clear, ‘butter instead of canons’ they said in the 30s.
So we shall finish with the ‘other side’ of economics – the work of dedicated, honest social scientists who have always tried to reform the system understanding its cycles according to the scientific method in order to implement the needed measures to regulate the economy for the profits of mankind at large, not any nation or particular people-caste. And the solutions they give to the crisis, even if under the antiquantum paradox they are not implemented.
The conclusion is obvious: Since the evolutionary ‘free market’ of machines, ruled by corporations is NOT a democracy, but it is a jungle of metal, where corporations rule and fight each other for higher profits, reproducing without limit its machines, and their owners, imprinted by all type of diverse memes of despise, superiority and indifference to the life of mankind, we humans of the sheeple, with no weapons or stocks, beyond the placebo mask of politicos and advertising that tell us ‘don’t worry be happy, human, anthropomorphic, fictions’ of caring, are expendable, consumed by weapons in wars, substituted by machines in work places, exploited by taxation and higher speculative prices by financial markets and quisling politicos, imprinted memetically by repetition of the same false damned lies and statistics by ‘experts’ bubbling on the TVs put on the altars of our home; and of course silenced and murdered whenever we defend the rights of the human kind.
Because from an objective point of view, in a capitalist ‘democracy’ we ALL humans have a ‘price’, as a cost, our wages.
And now as the robotic r=evolution creates a new species which will compete with unfair advantage with us we cannot longer expect to have an ‘economical’ future.
In that sense, the solution to the 4th crises are simple, if humans were able to control the production of memes of metal: merely to ban robotics and establish legal measures against ‘visual fiction’ as a form of lying that prevents a real freedom of speech, covered by the noise of advertising and fiction thought. Yet humans don’t control the system, but are their slaves in an Aristotelian sense – they believe that the future of mankind is defined by the future of machines, as if we were them. So nobody even thinks on the problem, let alone the solutions to the crisis of overproduction we live in.
Should a will to look at reality as it is and freedom of thought exist among our leaders, the crisis could be easily solved with a G20 ban on robotics and the creation of a global single currency, ¥€$ money, with fixed parity 1 dollar = 1 euro = 100 yens = 5 Yuans, which would represent 3/4 of the global GDP, hence the only reference currency that could not be sunk by speculators. Such currency would then have rights to a 20% of annual deficit, invested in promoting a sustainable economy, a welfare state and jobs for human beings, which the robotic radiation has eliminated and the corruption of the financial system will not pay for. Since it all started precisely with the crisis of overproduction of e-money – with the development of speculative platforms that parasite the physical economy – the creation of a fixed parity currency and the taxation of speculative trades is a must for the crisis to end.
Nothing else will do, not even the printing of money by central bankers, for those very same institutions that cause the crisis. Indeed, the money central bankers have printed, never reaches the physical, productive economy but it is kept in the ‘casino’ of speculators, who use it as virtual credit to further speculate and worsen the crisis.
Further on, the war crisis could be eliminated with a single stroke, by accepting that ‘terrorism’ is not war and must be fought with police, intelligence and diplomacy as UK and Spain did to end their terrorism movements. But that means of course, the end of the ‘dictatorship of bankers’ over the American government, with its financial muscle and related lobbies in defense of apartheid Israel – in other words a balanced, diplomatic position of the US, the end of the drone war and the backing of International Institutions such as the UNO and the EU, as a blueprint for a future integration of all nations into a wor(l)d union with a single currency and the goal of fostering the survival and welfare, the WHealth of all mankind.
A deeper solution to the crisis though requires a coup d’état of the G20 politicos of the world against the rule of corporations, banksters and memes of metal that control mankind, by nationalizing the financial industry and guide credit to create a sustainable world based in human goods of maximal utility to mankind and maximal labor. Otherwise the equation of productivity, newspeak for the equation of ‘organic composition of capital’ that guides profits will eliminate human labor: profits = Maximal capital/ Minimal Labor.
We could write that equation as:
Man (salary) = Price (slave, object) > Diminishing Cost (evolving working machine).
Both equations convert man in a part-time slave always obsolete to a future evolving machine determines mathematically and logically that we humans shall be soon obsolete. This equation must therefore be substituted by an equation of ethonomics, the sub-discipline of the science of bio-history that could create a welfare paradise by controlling credit and cre(dit)ating welfare goods of maximal labor and utility to man, what we call Whealthy goods:
Whealth = Human Goods that cater to the biological drives of man = Human Development Index = Cre(dit)ate to welfare companies.
In brief, we should change as UNO wanted the way we measure the economical value by an index of welfare goods. We should control credit by nationalizing the financial industry, to direct it to companies that maximize with their products the HDI of a nation, and we should forbid legally, all those lethal goods that are bound to extinguish us, physically (weapons), mentally (audiovisual noise) and as a species (robotics). The opposite is happening. We are indeed, creating a different world, one of memes of metal, a super-organism alien to life, studied in depth in this web with the laws of general systems sciences.
And this of course happens because we do not live in a democracy and hence we do not have a demand economy based in the goods people need, life goods, but in the goods corporations of machines reproduce, memes of metal. So credit is invented by corporations not by humans, redistributed to them and the 1% and spent in creating a world to the image and likeness of those machines not of men.
What would be a ‘demand economy’? To start with, only corporations will be taxed, according to the utility of their products – and the most lethal banned. Humans will NOT be taxed. Then all humans that accept Ye$ money as the currency of the nation would receive a 1000 euros = 1000 $ = 5000 Yuans = 100.000 Yens and so on salary to create a massive demand for human goods, as according to Pareto, Keynes, and all those ‘masters of humanist economists and all is ‘forgotten’ schools’, the poor spend most of their wealth in human goods, the happiness of a society (Paretto’s curve) increases when the Maslow pyramid of basic goods is met for most of the population…
This simple measure would immediately resolve most of the existential problems of mankind, hunger, poverty, housing, health-care… as there would be a massive boost on production of those goods to meet demand.
And finally, politicians should create according to the scalar structure of superorganisms a World Union, to end borders, nationalism and warfare, over the ‘surface’ of national cultures no longer cult(ure)s of war and economical competition but based in memes of life, taking many of the structures learned from the UNO and the EU, prior to the take over of the ‘cult(ure)s’ of greed and murder, you know who, on those institutions, which as always have done in their recurrent cycles of wars and holocausts, are bound to self-destroy the world ‘again’ but only once, final time.
Capitalism though denies social love and so does our civilization, as it is not on the interest of the historic groups that have come to control society only for their own good. Which is like an organism in which the head with power to control the body ignored the needs of the cells of the body (the rest of human society) and so allow its collapse, which ultimately also destroys the head. This is called madness and indeed, our elites are ‘MAD” in their strategy, ensuring our Mutual Assured Destruction as social organisms with those policies that invariably ’cause’ the most tragic of all cycles of death of History – the war and holocaust 800-80 year cycles, whose economic and political causes are denied in yet another clear case of the Antiquantum Paradox.
The humane solution to the crisis: a Global deal.
In Spanish we say ‘man is the only animal that stumbles twice with the same rock’. But this is the 3rd time. Indeed, astoundingly in the present repetitive 3rd cycle, the Humane, New Deal solution is NOT essayed by any western nation – only China implements it achieving growth close to a 10% based in massive investments in welfare goods.
Since a proper science of economics that caters to the needs of the humankind and requires unaviodably that the government of any kind controls the language of social power, money, has been repressed for so long in western, ‘capitalist’ societies where money is ‘monopolistically’ invented in 90% by private banks, that the ‘debate’ si considered over.
This implies that the solution of the west will be the fascist one. As the control of think-tanks and economic prizes, forums and universities by corporation is so dominant that the humane solution is not even debated in mainstream press. In that regard, the naive reader is not aware that unlike all other sciences, ‘history’ and ‘economics’, the most important of all sciences, as they deal with the future of our species, are neither ‘free’, nor practiced by ‘experts’, but their scientific laws have been ignored and censored for decades, whenever they collide with the selfish agendas of industrial corporations, becoming at present, mere ideologies of power that cater to the goal of corporations and the 1%.
At present, all what economists do is to cater to the goal of company-mothers of machines: the reproduction and evolution of its offspring of mechanisms without limit or restrain in the collateral, destructive effects they have over life and mankind. Since the origin of ‘classic economics’ is not scientific, but religious, based in Biblical traditions that make of Go(l)d and weapons the tools of power that ‘the chosen’ people who started the Industrial R=evolution used to impose its civilization. This mixture of politics, culture, religion, economic and nationalist memes is the ‘straight-jacket’ of irrational behavior that tampers with the scientific method in social sciences and prevents a proper design of a sustainable planet.
There is however a real science of economics and history, with predictable laws and cycles, which we rescue and further evolve in this web(1).
Indeed, the reader should notice that Mr. Kondratieff, who found those cycles, following the path of Mr. Marx, which first discovered and described those cyclical crises of overproduction of machines; was murdered by Stalin and his work is only known today by… Wall Street speculators, who use merely the mathematical rhythm of those cycles without caring to understand or explain their sociological and existential consequences. Yet because those cycles are experimentally sound, real and perfectly explained with the laws of biology and evolution, they kept happening, despite the massive opposition of corporations, bankers and governments of any sign to consider their implications.
Despite ‘powerful experts’ and corporation’s think tanks, the truth about economics and history is written in those cycles and the future of this crisis and mankind at large can only be understood through its scientific study. Let us then before we describe the causes of this crisis, its dual solution and its future, introduce some little known facts about the differences between sciences and power ideologies, needed to understand why humans are so grossly mismanaging their future, dumb, deaf and damned by their arrogance and ignorance of the biological laws of the Universe.
This is the beauty and damnation of the scientific method and the truths discovered with it – that no human power can change those laws, since ‘Those who impose scientific truths with the tools of power, will be the laugh of the Gods‘ (A. Einstein).
If Marx gave the humane solution to the first crisis of overproduction of steam machines and trains (socialist solution, Communist Manifesto), America and after the war Europa implemented the human solution to the crisis in the 1930s with the New Deal and the politics of Keynesianism. Both were successful theoretical solutions aborted by capitalism and its ‘pyramid of power’, studied latter in more detail.
Now, in this third cycle the only country in which the scientific, socialist school of economics still has some ‘memories’ left, China, and the only country where governments control the financial industry and hence have power to cre(dit)ate, create with the language of social power, money, the future of their society, is implemented the Humanist/Keynesian solution: to invest in the welfare state.
It has to be noticed that only China is growing steadly around 10 % year after year showing how a scientific, social economics do work. In the next graph from NYTimes we can see those differences:
The expansion of such global deal could be easy with the creation of Yes money, born of the fixed parity of Euros=Dollars 10 investment 0 Yens and Yuans. ¥e$ money would allow those countries which represent, 3/4 of the world economy to have massive deficits to create the welfare state similar to those shown in the graph for China. Unfortunately the New Deal did not invest enough on welfare to come out of the crisis as war did and that is why it failed. An enormous amount of deficit to come out of the 29 crisis was however achieved in II world war where the American government spent at its peak 120% of its Gdp in deficit to create weapons and employ humans killing humans. So indeed Keynesianism can get us out of the crisis, either killing us or feeding us – take your pick.
That is the difference between Keynesian militarism, what America is going to essay this crisis as Germany did in the previous one, and Keynesian true doctrines of investment in welfare, peaceful goods that Roosevelt essayed too mildly and China is essaying now.
It is then self-evident that a human solution to the crisis requires to control the reproduction and evolution of lethal machines and promote the reproduction of welfare life/based goods that help us to survive and require human jobs to be produced. This was the New Deal solution to the previous 29 crisis and the socialist solutions proposed in the European r=evolutions of the XIX century to the train crashes.
CONCLUSION. The evolution of the Metal-earth.
You live in a darwinian, tribal world in which there is not scientific analysis and design of mankind, and our political and economical systems. And the result is that as military men are not scientists of history, but the people who won that struggle with the use of Darwinian weapons, and many of their errors have been passed into the ‘national system’ -starting for the concept of nation that make us ‘different species’, not homo sapiens but homo britannicus, homo americanus etc – the ruling financial economists and bankers and corporations who control the economy are not experts of economics but the people who have imposed in that tribal fight, their power through the misuse and monopoly in the production of money, mass-media information and industrial wealth (weapons and machines).
But once all ideological and human speech is translated to biology, what we observe is the terraforming of the planet Earth from a world of life and humans into a world of machines, building a superorganism of increasingly automated corporations, where humans will soon be expendable as most life already is:
In the graph, the Earth is evolving both in organic scale from individual human beings and machines into global systems and in species, from life beings into metal-systems, in which computers, metal-minds, connect and direct massive systems of automated machines. The robotic revolution will complete that transition from gaia into the metal-earth.
This is the ultimate meaning of the age of chips and information.
For that reason, it is imperative to understand technology in biological terms, abandoning the mathematical, abstract approach of classic economics, which cannot understand those cycles of evolution, neither studies the ‘real’ competence and collateral effects some lethal machines are having on mankind – from global warming, produced by the ‘detritus of those machines’, to the massive wave of unemployment that robotics is causing, to the risks poised by the evolution of Nuclear Weapons, into the threshold of ‘planetary bombs’ – quark bombs and black holes that can potentially destroy the planet.
In that regard, a Free Market is an ‘Economic ecosystem’, regulated by a language of information called money and ruled by company-mothers, whose aim is to re=produce and evolve machines, simple organisms of metal that imitate the functions of energy and information of the human being. As a result the Earth becomes terraformed, from a carbon-life ecosystem (Gaia), ruled by human organizations (Governments) and human languages (verbal laws) into an economic ecosystem (Free Market), dominated by company-mothers, money and machines, which enhance our energy and information but also compete and substitute man in war and labor fields.
Thus, a biological analysis of Free Markets shows the need to regulate the evolution of technology, pruning the bad fruits of the tree of science, weapons, robots and polluting industries, as we do with lethal organisms (virus, predators) to limit their competence with mankind, while fostering biological, human goods needed for our survival (agriculture, education, housing, verbal ethics, health, environment), if we want to make the world safer and sustainable for life . . . But that is an ‘objective science of economics’. We are not guided by ‘objective, good-hearted, idealist scientists’, but by ‘the invisible hand of go(l)d’ – by human greed, by passions and desires to which ‘reason’ bends, finding always ‘stupendous arguments’ of ‘highly-prized experts’, to make possible and justify profits.
It is for that reason that the previous cycles, called the Kondratieff cycles of the economy, are known to economists, but their use is reduced to charting profits in the stock-market and other financial aspects of the economy, despite their huge social and historic implications. Unfortunately, guided by profits, Economics pretends to be a ‘mathematical’ science, independent of History, uninterested in the collateral effects of the production of machines, money and weapons might cause to mankind.
And yet, because those cycles are real, even Wall Street economists use those cycles to forecast financial changes, without caring to investigate their meaning.
My approach to forecast those cycles and the present crisis, described in detail in my pioneer books on biological economics two decades ago was different.
Since the financial economy is merely a reflection of the physical economy of energy, used to reproduce and evolve machines, and money, I applied the cycles of Kondratieff to the evolution of energy and machines and through an analysis of its dates for all the countries of the Western world, came to the conclusion that both cycles were parallel, related to the development of new energies and the weapons and machines constructed with them. Once this was clear to me, I corrected the basic error made by Kondratieff in his calculus of the duration of the cycle, as Russia was an under-developed economy.
So its cycles of machines were shorter, because Russia imported machines already developed, starting the cycle of trains latter than the Industrialized World. Thus, I found the real periodicity of the cycle to be 72 years, which coincides with the ‘Generational cycle’ of History. Then, I calculated that in 2001 and 2008, the reproduction of chips and its electronic software (e-money) would reach again a peak of overproduction and cause a collapse in the global economy – as it has happened.
A detailed analysis of the cycle of 72 years of evolution of energies and machines explains what all the models of classic economics have failed to understand: money also follows a cycle of evolution and reproduction, related to the machines used to ‘invent’ it, today electronic machines, which have not only saturated the world with hardware but also with e-money software, till money lost value. Because money is reproduced also with machines, its cycle is parallel to the cycle of machines of the economy.
Thus, we predicted, parallel to the crisis of overproduction of computers, also a financial crisis of e-money, made with PCs, similar to the 29 crash of the ‘ticker money’ economy, which jacked up prices of stock with electric machines into surreal levels. Indeed, there is every 72 years a huge crash in the stock-market with 2 short ±8 years ripples, due to an over-production of money and machines, which plunges the world into a global depression, till the new cycle of energies and new machines takes off, creating new industries and jobs that replace those of the previous cycle.
The boom and bust cycle of the global economy is both, a cycle of reproduction of energy, weapons, machines and economical information, money, as all of them are related. 3 negative effects are paramount:
false value explodes, it ruins the economy of the Middle class. Thus, at the end of those cycles there is paradoxically, at the height of the reproduction of money and machines of the highest price (weapons) a deep crisis for the human economy and a Great Depression, as machines and forms of money created with those energies become over-reproduced, saturating the economic ecosystem. Thus, the details of the 3 crashes are similar:
In the age of steam machines, there is a peak in stock-money issues of worthless train companies in the 1850s, precisely when the best railroad lines had been constructed and the new ones were loosing money – not because people thought they were profitable, but because the business of inventing stocks had reached its evolving peak. Meanwhile the 2 commonest jobs of the age, farming and transport, greatly diminished, as prices and revenues for farmers, lowered due to the efficiency of train transport; while 90% of horses were killed in a decade in England, when the train put them out of work.
In 1928, there was a peak in the creation of new stocks in companies of cars and radios, when RCA shares reached an astonishing 500 $ value, precisely when the slump in consumption of cars had started in earnest, as all Americans had their Ford-T. Yet the electric ticker, the equivalent to e-money in the 1920s, had been implanted in small towns and was sucking in money from the middle class all over America to satisfy the ‘Ponzi Pyramids’ of Wall Street speculation in radio’s stocks. Then, in 1929 and 8 years latter in 1937, the physical and financial economy crashed together. While the reproduction of electric systems of automation in assembly lines at factories provoked also a massive wave of unemployment.
Thus, we are in a similar age to the 1929-37 crashes of the ‘ticker’ economy: e-money has reproduced massively, as financiers learned to maximize its electronic invention, while in the physical economy robots and electronic software have thrown out of job millions of blue and white collar workers in a massive wave of unemployment and the first ‘splendid little wars’ that will take companies out of the crises are essayed in Afghanistan with drone planes, which evolve fast to become the Terminators of the new age of war.
These ‘negative side effects’ of each of the final ‘boom’ ages of reproduction and evolution of machines, weapons and money, of the ‘wealth of nations’, imply that machines not only enhance our life but also compete and displace human labor and soldiers. Yet, since Adam Smith established the economic dogma that all machines are good, and the more we have the better, because their sale makes money, the invisible hand of go(l)d, we must not argue, we prefer to deny the negative collateral effects those cycles had for mankind…
In that regard, this crisis is the beginning of a ‘runaway’ era of hefty profits obtained with the elimination of human jobs (growth in productivity caused by robots and white collar pcs) and human lives (military profits as weapons consume human beings). And it is parallel to the 1860s, gilded era, and 30s fascist era. In the 3 ages, the overproduction of a new type of energy and information machines (electronic machines in this cycle, electric and oil machines in the 30s, trains in the XIX c.) changed the outlook of history and the destiny of mankind, as those machines took over jobs performed previously by humans and their ‘biological, re=productive organisms’, corporations, took over the political and social systems of mankind.
Now, the previous graph, is the lanwave of corporations and the future of all of us. The corporation is a company-mother of memes of metal guided by the equation of monetary profits that will always eliminate a human. There is no freedom of decisions under such tree of actions. Nothing matters. it is all an automated process, which we shall understand better when we realize that machines are set to evolve as humans do, by imitating and substituting our organs, creating finally organic metal, robots with iron bodies and gold minds. This is the destiny of our civilization under the grammar of money.
A future in which men will be discharged as objects of lesser price than the constantly evolving machines and weapons of higher ‘productivity’, efficiency and affinity and complementarity with money, the language of information of metal, today e-money cycles in computer screens.
The same happens with the actions performed by individual, selfish ‘homo bacteria’, animetals, also guided by those thoughts of profit and objectification of man.
Since the words of love, the ‘genetic’ code of humans embedded in its phonemes, grammar and syntax is irrelevant today, submissive always to the eviL=anti-life values of money.
We are slaves of metal, all what we do is to re=produce it and evolve it in factories, consume it and get attached and atrophied to it. And we are totally unaware of this process because those ‘metal-ideologies’ manufacture our brains.
And the astounding thing to study, marvelous in its eviL twists against life and freedom, is how this have come to be the set of mind of 7 billion human ‘$laves’, thanks to the pedestrian, rhetoric method of reproducing and imprinting human brains with books,press, radio messages, Tvs, and audiovisual fanfare.
All this however is disguised and ignored by humans thanks to the massive propaganda in favor of technology that mass-media corporations imprint on human beings; thanks to the ego-trips of superpower that our attached organs obtain, using machines (so we become super-warriors, super-thinkers and super-runners with weapons, pcs and cars, even if in fact, we become coward, stupid and fat, when we observe ourselves without those mechanical attachments).
In the XVIII century we discovered machines that transformed energy into information and vice versa – steam machines, printing machines – and we started the evolution of those machines, imitating our organs on them.
In a series of 800-80 years decametric cycle of complex evolution humans have been evolving metal, first bronze, then iron, then gunpowder weapons and finally machines, and creating ideologies to justify what is a raw game of power: humans with metal killing life and other people and building ever bigger instruments. And all this under an organization of legal and economical character, the corporation, the citizen of free markets – the impersonal, reproductive organism of those machines of metal.
And the key moment in which this transition has happened is the moment in which corporations, no longer governments control most of the life-time of existence of mankind, as ‘workers=reproducers’ and ‘consumers=vitalizers’ of their offspring of machines. In this crude biological terminology, of course, alien to your consciousness, an external, objective, ‘scientific’ observer would describe the role of humans in the world today. Yet since the II world war, the development of Information, audiovisual machines of enormous capacity to overdrive and hypnotize the human mind, has created a new ‘layer’ of complexity in this human slavery to its ‘enzyman’ tasks as catalyzers of the evolution and re=production of machines, as part-time slaves of corporations.
Information and energetic machines started then to create a deconstructed ‘future’ organic Golem, robotic substitute of man; and we did it according to the way the Universe creates new forms, first piece by piece, in large scales, then reducing them, and all the way through using the new machines to overpower nature, become stronger and control other human beings.
Today this industrial civilization is globalized and all human functions and organs have equivalent machines. So today, all those machines together form a complex system, the economic ecosystem, which we shall call here by a more scientific definition, as the Financial-Media-Military-Industrial-Complex or FMI complex.
The name is chosen because it refers to the 5 sub-type of machines that create the economic ecosystem: informative, financial/media machines; energetic weapons/transport machines and tool/working machines that combine informative and energetic systems to perform jobs previously performed by human beings.
The synergy of all those machines is evident, if we study them as complementary systems of energy and information, as all biological systems are. For example, you are an energetic body/brain, informative system. So we have also information and energy machines, and all together cater, control, program, enhance and substitute the equivalent information/energy systems of human beings.
If we consider all those machines together, we define them therefore as a complementary system of energy and information machines, made of memes of metal, made of a virtual economy of informative software (money and mass media) and a physical/energetic body, the Industrial-Military system of machines and weapons.
All of them are related by two similar institutions, the company-mother of machines, and the stock-market in which all those company-mothers are compared by their reproductive/sales performance and given the necessary ‘genetic/memetic language’, money, to carry out their reproductive tasks.
– Thus we can define the economic ecosystem as a metal-based ecosystem, different from the carbon-life and historic human ecosystem it substitutes. And yet a true biological science of economics able to control the reproduction of money and machines for the benefit of man could create a sustainable world, designed to our image and likeness. But this will never happen unless we evolve our abstract vision of machines and money with a biological model that studies its positive and negative relationships with the human kind.
The alternative of ignoring and not controlling that evolution is obvious: at a certain point into the future, automated companies, robotic systems and weapons will evolve to a point that they will openly compete and perhaps extinguish life. The Earth will be terraformed.
The truth our elites of ‘metal-masters’ forgot: company-mothers of machines are not human
In that regard, only a proper, biological scientific approach to social sciences explains the reason why our ‘authorized’ social sciences discourse does not meet even the simplest level of the scientific method – accurate collection of data, creation of sound hypothesis based in objective, non-anthropomorphic models that PREDICT THE FUTURE of the species we study and final verification – as we do in this blog and have shown in our books that predicted this crisis 20 years in advance – is thus evident:
Humans have completely forgotten the laws of biology and survival in a Darwinian Universe in a biological planet… But to ‘forgive’ the facts of reality doesn’t change reality, it merely is an act of madness that makes the confrontation with reality harsher.
So human wantings, fantasies and desires are always checked by a ‘larger’ set of truths – those of the Universe and the biological planet in which we live. In this planet the game is called re=production, and it happens in a biological fashion.
Species with better energy bodies – e – and information brains, i – become top predators, exi. And then reproduce in massive numbers, ∑exi, extinguishing competing rival species. This process is in essence the process that happens also among human tribes and species of machines. Machines reproduce in larger numbers during those overproduction crises, competing with humans in labor and war fields. But those economists who explain this fact, from Marx, who found the first overproduction crises to Kondratieff, the face of the previous graph, who found its regularities, to Keynes who explained the last of those crises in the 30s and its solution (welfare investments in alternative demand of life-based goods) to this author who evolved those thesis into a full biological model of economics, 20 years ago during his student years at Columbia University, are simply ignored.
Yet this absurdity – to ignore, deny, even hate the truths of biological and social sciences, because it is not ‘subjective’, and doesnt make us ‘chosen of god’, substituting it by ‘ideologies’ that pass as ‘religion’ or ‘science’ but are ‘anthropomorphic ego-trips’ – chain us to an absurd destiny we no longer fight – to use all the resources of this planet, through the corporative system which monopolizes today most resources and institutions of power, including political institutions, TO EVOLVE, REPRODUCE AND TAKE CARE OF OTHER SPECIES – NOT OF HUMANITY.
The result of course is the overproduction of memes of metal and the underproduction of welfare goods we need to survive. WE SACRIFICE THE SPECIES TO TECHNO-UTOPIAN DREAMS OF A WORLD of machines we confuse with OUR FUTURE.
And so what we observe is the opposite of what our utopias and religions tell us – not ‘progress’, and a better future, but an increasingly more difficult no-future caused by a parallel collateral effect of the evolution of machines: the automation of the self-reproductive systems of machines (factories and corporations), who keep throwing humans out of job, and the increasing numbers of human victims that die each new generation of more evolved weapons. And those two facts require a biological, Darwinian analysis of the relationships between humans and machines.
This is what we do in this web, taking on the classic analysis of the greatest economists of history (Smith, Ricardo, Marx, Schumpeter, Kondratieff and Keynes), all of them aware and critical of the process of overproduction of machines, extinction of labor and war profits that happen cyclically as Companies keep reproducing machines for a profit.
The parallelism of those cycles is startling and can be studied at all levels and in all type of sociological, economical, political and cultural events. And we will do that in this blog.
But because the future is what we choose, we also advance, using the laws of general systems sciences, information and biology, a better model of mankind, a future in which we could survive and be happy – even if in the present ideological conditions that future is becoming ever more distant from us…
So in the last section of this ‘book’ we shall consider a rational control of the economic system, which could work for mankind, if we humans remain in control of it using the laws of biology to that aim, but the present system that we shall describe now and the natural outcome of the evolution of military and industrial robotics with no control ‘in a free market’, will mean according to the laws of evolution our extinction if we let the Free Jungle of Metal-machines and its company-mothers dominate the world.Indeed the astounding, ‘memetic’ fact about the human species is this: we are creating a new biological, organic species, the machine, under the same biological laws that create other species, which we can resume in the ‘Oedipus paradox”: species evolve new species, better than them, their ‘sons’, and then their ‘sons’, once mature, kill the parents (as Oedipus did in the greek tragedy). So amphibia gave birth to reptiles that gave birth to mammals that gave birth to humans that gave birth to machines, and each new species predated in the previous one.
It is of course a deja vu experience. It is not the first time it happens.
Indeed these people who prefer to ruin the world and labor day and night 24 hours in global markets to ruin mankind instead of using their power to create a paradise, have done it before 3 times and so they know their drill. Remember, people are slaves, they believe they don’t reason and these people believe in capitalism, in techno-utopia, in nationalism, in Abrahamic Religions and all those ideologies tell them it is right, it is good, it is their manifest destiny to destroy the world in wars and holocausts for greed and profit.
Because after all they do not see it like that. They are solid believers. So let us deal once and for all with this ‘new species’ – the most powerful people of the world, at true value, of course using biology and reason, since we live in a biological world and I am a scientist. I don’t bull$hit. I don’t believe. My mind is free. And that is my only prerogative in this Orwellian world.
And so we have to deal with the ideologies that deny the truths of the superorganism of history and evolutionary economics science and evolution, ideologies of biblical origin that we therefore call in this web ‘creationist economics’ – the ideologies of capitalism, nationalism and mechanism that today rule supreme the ‘so-called’ science of economics.
1. A scientific model of economics: Science vs. Ideology
In the graph, all sciences predict the future of its species by projecting the patterns of previous cycles, obtained with sound data and accurate, objective mathematical and logic models of reality. Science that fail those simple steps must be considered ideologies.
The scientific method that applies to all sciences, with no ‘exceptionalism’ consists on 3 steps:
– A) Collection of experimental, sound data.
– B) Introduction of such data into patterns and cycles that show its regularity, allowing the prediction of future cycles.
– C) Creation of a non-anthropomorphic, objective, mathematical or logic, causal model that explains why those cycles are happening in space and time, and further helps its predictability…
– D) Allowing a positive praxis that controls nature and its systems with the aim of improving the existence of all members of the single human species – homo sapiens.
Those 4 legs that sustain the building of science differentiate a scientific model from an ideology of power (or a faulty model of science), which:
– A) Censors data that does not cater the selfish agenda of a limited social group, people-caste, nation or corporation, or lacks the proper instruments to gather information; hence subverting the first element of science – accurate data.
– B) Prefers anthropomorphic, subjective or religious theories that cater to those groups of power or simply make people feel happy, as the center of their perceived world, but are always less accurate models of truth in an impersonal Universe in which man is just another non-chosen mortal species.
We call this trade-off between happiness and truth the ‘ego paradox’. Since we always measure reality from a human self-centered point of view that distorts reality. So at first sight we are the still center of our measure and we seem bigger than the galaxy Andromeda. But we are not. Since:
‘Our mind is an infinitesimal point mapping in stillness an infinite Universe: 0 x ∞=K’.
And so the ego paradox confuses the zero-point of our mind-self with the infinity of its universal mapping.
C) As a result, due to faulty data and subjective models, scientific ideologies fail to predict the future evolution of the species and events it studies. Since the future is NEVER caused by a single, ‘ceteris paribus’, causal point of view, but by the complex interaction of all the different points of view that intervene in those events, which require an external, multiple analysis.
D) In the case of human sciences, a sound model of truth that considers the whole perspective of the human species and the planet Earth at large is essential to analyze the future and direct it from the perspective of a positive praxis for mankind.
Thus scientific ideologies with censored information and a restricted point of view systematically fail with their erroneous model to improve human individual life (‘quack’ medicine prior to the theory of germs) or our life as a single species in control of the Earth (classic macro-economics that cater to the non-human point of view corporations or the restricted ‘1%’ of its owners; political systems, which do not obey the ‘democratic’ collective point of view of all their citizens), and their praxis often causes opposite, negative collateral effects that harm most of mankind – the species – even if they favor the selfish agenda of the restricted group that imposes them.
Thus the key elements to proof a scientific model truth or discharge it as faulty and harmful for practical purposes are:
A) Its accurate data. B) its objective, non-human point of view. C) its capacity to predict the future evolution of the species and events it studies D) its subjective, positive, human praxis. As opposed to ideologies that have:
A) Inaccurate data. B) Subjective, reduced, ceteris paribus point of view. C) Incapacity to predict the future D) Objective, non-human praxis.
3 Samples of the evolution of knowledge from Subjective Ideology into objective science.
Once those 4 positive elements are clarified we can consider 3 cases on the evolution of knowledge from myth and ideology into science from physical sciences (astronomy), biological and sociological ones:
The oldest form of knowledge, astrology became the science of astronomy only when:
a) Telescopes gave us accurate data.
b) Astronomers discharged the anthropomorphic theory that stars influenced psychically human behavior and created a sound theory based in attractive forces and orbital motions.
C) As a result, Kepler and Newton could calculate mathematically the correct orbits of planets and predict their future position establishing laws that summarized that behavior (left side of graph).
The main disciplines of life, Biology and Medicine became sciences only when:
A) Microscopes gave us accurate data.
B) Biologists and doctors discharged anthropomorphic theories that considered humans the creation of a subjective personal God and their sickness caused by its anti-thesis evil spirits; developing instead an objective model that related causally species according to similar forms (Evolution Theory), studied the causal competition and extinction of those species according to their body-mind, energetic-informative power (selection of species – right side of graph) and then Pasteur developed with such knowledge a theory of Germs, based in the competition at cellular level between top predator bacteria & viruses and human cells.
C) As a consequence evolution predicts the most efficient, future survival forms of many species and Medicine the evolution and causes of sickness, which ‘quacks’ with religious theories had never been able to predict.
The case of Social sciences: ‘Intelligent design’ in economics, ‘thin air’ theorists and the 1% p.o.v.
This simple inversion of the 4 elements of the scientific method can be applied to compare the biological model of Economics described in this pages and the dominant, neo-classic, financial models that human societies apply to manage the world, easily finding out that unlike the biological model, who follows those 4 legs, present neo-classic financial economics is an Ideology that:
A) Uses inaccurate data (‘damned lies and statistics’, ‘political and economical correctness’ etc.
B) Has a reduced p.o.v.s (those of the stock- owners of corporations, barely the 1% of human population)
C) Shows an all too evident failure to predict economic indicators and
D) Sponsors, objective, non-human policies that do not favor mankind but the machines for whom those corporations cater, regardless of any negative, collateral effect on our species and Nature.
While the socio-biological model of this pages will be shown to:
A) Use proper data in the accurate languages of social sciences with no censorship on the often Darwinian behavior of people-castes and corporations that control the system.
B) Have an objective point of view that includes the relationships of symbiosis and competition between humans and machines.
C) Be able to predict the future events of this science, based in the patterns and regularity of the generational cycles of evolution of money, machines and weapons (‘memes of metal’), proved by the accurate description of the causes, facts and dates of the present crisis, in books published 20 years ago.
D) Sponsors a ‘WHealthy’ praxis of political economics that favors the future evolution and survival of the human kind, modeled with the tools of systems sciences and the examples of Nature – the master of us all – and its most efficient, Healthy and democratic social organisms.
We need an objective economic science with a human point of view.
In that sense as today, Economics and History are not developed as sciences, which follow the 4 tenants of the scientific method:
– A) accurate collection of data to fit in cyclical patterns; B) non-anthropomorphic, causal model that explain those cyclical patterns; C) helping to predict the future and D) manipulate those patterns to design outcomes positive for mankind.
Due to the anti-quantum paradox, inverse to the uncertainty of quantum physics: the social scientist, the observer, is so small compared to the structures of political and economical power, the observable, that the observable manipulates the observer to cater their selfish agenda, creating uncertainty, false truths.
The result is what we might call ‘Intelligent Design in economics’, the creation of a sophisticated, albeit false model of the eco(nomic)system, the ideology of ‘capitalism’, of biblical origin, founded by believers in that religion (from Adam Smith to Friedman), according to which the invisible hand of go(l)d, money, is the only measure of wealth and its accumulation, the purpose of mankind (money is the intelligence of go(l)d said Calvin), and those who own it (the 1%), are the ‘leisure classes’ (veblen) to whom society must cater as chosen of go(l)d. Only from this historic and religious perspective, we can understand the ill-designed, false models of macro-economics as a science that guide our society towards self-destruction.
Such restricted point of view, which has a historic origin in the culture that founded and owned the first corporations has triumphed as a praxis because the institution it built – the corporation – has shown to be overpowerful. Yet the corporation has as only goal to overproduce, evolve and sell for a profit ‘memes of metal’, money, weapons and machines, which often compete in a planet of limited resources with the reproduction of life-based, human goods we need to survive.
And this trade-off between the profits of corporations and the welfare of mankind is at the heart of the conflicts and crisis of modern history and economics. Intelligent Design sides completely with the point of view of the 1% (the culture of owners of corporations) protecting the point of view of those memes of metal, the point of view of the machine, NOT the point of view of mankind at large. And economics as it is today practiced side completely with the point of view of financial and industrial corporations, paradoxically ruining the welfare of most of mankind, displaced in labor and war fields by new machines of ‘higher productivity’ and loosing their wealth exchanged by fiat money produced for free by those corporations.
Yet the most astounding fact of this overproduction crisis of fiat e-money and chip workers is NOT that it is happening as i predicted it in detail 20 years ago coming from my master at columbia University, but that NOBODY talks of it and that the 90% of mankind which does not own or work directly as managers in corporations are totally unaware of its causes, not to speak of professional economists, and cannot even accept them when explained (this blog now 2 years up has zero global exposure; so it has my 20 years old string of books and conferences in the subject), because the names Keynes, Marx, Overproduction are ‘taboo’ words in the ‘religious belief’ on the system, the goodness of money and technological progress. This astounding wishful blindness of mankind requires to dwell in the ways in which the brain is imprinted by mass-media, taboos and beliefs and explains why the blog has an Aristotelian dictum on its headline ‘men are slaves they believe, they don’t reason’. Thus many pages of this web are dedicated to explain memetics – the modes of imprinting of human minds who are ‘tabula rassas’ that can believe anything power tells them to believe and be happy.
As today, the main economists who explained the cycle in each era, Mr. Marx and Mr kondratieff are today taboo as they were taboo in ‘both’ western and eastern societies, during most of the XX century, precisely because all what they predicted has happened. And this would blow up the cover of political and economical correctness that mankind has built to invent a rossy, unscientific future and go straight ahead to the phase of war and social revolution in the 2020s once the 3rd ‘short wave’ of the crisis, around 2015-17, destroys the currencies of the western world as it did in the 1870s (the so-called silver crime) and the 20s (deutsche mark destruction). Yet again politicos and financiers are doing everything they can to arrive to that phase in an automaton process that amazes any rational, informed spectator.
Since they warned that those crises were a runaway process of social destruction, misuse of all the resources of the planet to increase the power of corporations and the overproduction of machines, with the parallel underproduction of welfare goods, in a planet of limited resources, and proposed the canonical solution ‘canons vs. butter’. Since this happen in both crisis, which ended in military dictatorships both in the west (fascism) and the East (communism), both regimes censored Marx while Kondratieff was murdered by Stalin. While the 29 crisis became ‘officially ‘ unconnected’ to the causes of II world war tht would be ever since some kind of imaginary plot of the Germans against mankind due to the madness of Mr. Adolf.
And again when the crisis now raging and mutating into its military phase destroyed the western world, butter has been rejected and of course Marx, Keynes, Galbraith, this author and any economist that dared to predict the causes and consequences of this crisis is ignored. In this web we shall provide an in -depth analysis of all the aspects of the crisis in the past, present and future, connecting it with the longer wave of evolution of ‘memes of metal’ and destruction of civilizations that preceded them (the ‘Spengler cycle’ of history first spotted and explained by Oswald Spengler in his ‘decadence of the west’ which prophesized a century ago, both the end of the german cycle in II world war, and the end of the American cycle at the turn of the century as it has been the case).
We propose instead here a socio-biological model of economics and history based in systems science, theory of information and biological laws that do follow the 4 tenants of the scientific method. It collects data without censorship. It establishes cyclical patterns of evolution of data, has shown to forecast properly the future for 20 years and provides an efficient model of an eco(nomic)system, based in efficient biological systems that could solve the crisis and cre(dit)ate a future made to the image and likeness of mankind.
But those models will be always subject to the anti-quantum paradox of the 1% and its ‘company-mothers’ of machines that are blind to the scientific method, and behave paradoxically as biological entities, whose only goal is to reproduce, evolve and sell for a profit those machines regardless of the collateral effects on mankind.
Yet a renewal of the science of economics and the end of Intelligent Design is sorely needed.
Otherwise the present eco(nomics)system dominated by corporations and their ‘biblical dogmas of intelligent design’, biased in favor of profits and machines will keep evolving robots during the present 72 year Kondratieff cycle that ends the Industrial Evolution, increasing their competition with human beings and labor and war fields and our obsolescence as a species.
A) Accurate data in the proper language of Social sciences
2 elements limit classic economics in its recollection of data, what their practitioners cynically called ‘damned lies (censorship or distortion of data) and statistics (use of only mathematical information).’
– An error common to many practitioners of science is the idea that the only language of science is mathematics. And by making a mathematical statement A-B-C are no longer required and the statement is truth per se. This is not the case.
We exist in a world of spatial energy (as vacuum space is a sum of energy quanta) and temporal information (as a clock-cycle creates a hertz, or minimal unit of information).
So mathematics, derived from geometry is the main language to study space and energy.
But causal logic is the main language that relates the 3 dimensions of time, past, present and future, better to study information.
And for that reason bio-logical sciences are based in a logic, causal theory, evolution, which studies the in-form-ation, the form of species, how those forms evolve, which forms are more efficient and the causal relationships of symbiosis and competition between species, such as the form with better energetic bodies and informative brains, or top predator species of max. exi force always wins and extinguishes the lesser form, surviving into the future.
And so both, spatial mathematics and temporal logic are languages accepted to create scientific models. And as it happens, most models of physical sciences concerned mainly with motions and locations in space are better described with mathematics. While most biological sciences concerned with information are based in the causal and morphological laws of evolution.
Further on, as Einstein put it to Poincare, ‘(we) know when a mathematical theory is truth but not when it is real’, and since Godel proved that a mathematical theory could not be proved truth by its own internal consistency, mathematically sound theories are not necessarily real or truth if they are not proved by the A-B-C legs of the scientific method.
And the same can be said of a logically consistent theory.
But if we were to establish a primacy between both languages, contrary to belief logic will be more important, since the mathematical formalism is deduced from logic (Hilbert, Frege, Computers) and space is considered today a ‘sheet of present time’ moving along the total world-line flow of causal time from past to future.
Thus now we can solve a key question for social sciences: shall we construct economic models based only in mathematics as financial economists, dominant in this discipline, today do, or models based mainly in biological sciences?
The answer is obvious: Since we, human beings are biological organisms and industrial machines are made to our image and likeness in order to enhance our organs of energy and information, becoming symbiotic to us or competing with us in labor and war fields, Economics, which deals with 2 kind of products – machines and human, welfare goods of organic nature – must be considered a bio-logical science, based in evolutionary, systemic models of organic machines, their company-mothers, human beings and our societies. While mathematics, as it happens in biology, must be considered the accessory language that helps to gather data and find the patterns that structure the evolution, reproduction and interaction of the agents of the eco(nomic)system, and its language of information, money that ‘values’ both humans and digital machines with salaries and prices.
Thus history and economics must use both, biological and mathematical laws, but organic, biological causal laws, contrary to belief, must dominate the ‘whys’ of the field.
B) An objective, multiple point of view.
Science has been a rational attempt to get out of such self-centered, subjective, human point of view, as centers of the Universe, into an objective, non-personal wider perspective that take into account all other entities of reality.
So we moved from a mythic, religious age of individual, human or tribal egos as universal centers of chosen by some imaginary god, into the whole Mankind (oikoumene religions) and its body, Gaia as the center.
Next we expanded our physical point of view, making the sun, the center of the Universe; and then the whole space-time with no physical center at all became our frame of reference (relativity theory).
While in the realm of human sciences, we expanded our socio-biological center, from mankind to all life species (Evolution).
Finally in XXI century science we are going further, considering that not even our scale of size and speed of time clocks is unique (5 Dimensional metrics1) and we are applying the definition of life as a system which processes energy, information, reproduces and evolves socially to machines (as we do in this socio-biological model of history and economics) and to all Complementary Systems, made of lineal bodies/fields of Energy and cyclical particles/heads of Information of the Universe2.
– A & B) From the perspective of subjectivism is easy to understand the 2nd error of classic, financial economics: censorship of relevant data. Since most economists work for corporations for whom they cater.
Unfortunately Classic, Financial Economics, which rules the field, was invented before Biology and Evolution expanded the human point of view, even before the first machine appeared, certainly before Democracies were established, by a religious, Calvinist ‘believer’, Mr. Adam Smith, who thought as Calvin did that ‘the intelligence of god is money’ and clearly sponsored the point of view of the Biblical, anti-democratic, financial elite of XVIII century Britain – as a client of the Montagu Family who founded the 1st private Bank of England.
Thus it is still infected, despite its use of mathematical equations (which can be bended into ‘damned lies and statistics’ and are not truth per se) by the beliefs of ‘Biblical Supremacism’ – not a science but the ideology that considers certain humans superior to the rest of mankind because they are ‘Chosen of Go(l)d’, according to their wealth.
Indeed, Mr Smith and most of the founders of classic economics, Mr. Malthus, an Anglican Priest, Mr. Ricardo, a Jewish stock-broker, Mr. Say, a Calvinist believer, and most of those who have renewed the field in modern times, Mr. Friedman and Mr. Hayek, Orthodox Jewish, Mr. Buchanan, a Baptist, believe in such myths.
The result is the creation of an economic version of the Ideology of Biology, called Intelligent Design, sponsored by Biblical Supremacists, and rightly shunned in serious Universities; but with a twist: it is a fact that today Intelligent Design by the ‘invisible hand of go(l)d’ , ‘disguised’ with ‘damned lies and statistics’ that seem to validate this theory in the realm of economics, dominates totally Economics in most Universities of the Western world, with the aforementioned consequences in our economic policies – lack of accurate, data, objective models, predictability and positive praxis for mankind.
These facts extends to the most prestigious prizes of this discipline, the Nobel Prize, conceded by a private Rijsbank, which cannot be given by ‘decree’ to any evolutionist (since Mr. Nobel was a pious believer and founder of the first multinational and biggest arm dealer of the XIX century) and so it has been conceded 9 out of 10 times to Biblical denominations.
And the same restricted point of view applies to the Central Bankers, International Institutions and CEOs of western financial companies, which are overwhelmingly occupied by Biblical cultures, notably the Jewish Culture that invented banking and stock-markets (over ¾ of Financial CEOs, CFOs of Western 500 Fortune companies, Central Bankers, and world banks, when they represent less 0.25% of human population). This dominance is all too evident among the biggest financial institutions. For example, the CEO of the biggest world commercial bank, HSB is an Anglican Priest, and recently the CEO of the biggest investment bank, Goldman Sachs affirmed that ‘a banker’s job is God’s work’.
Putting aside the anti-democratic, historic and political elements of that cultural supremacy in the field, which are not the theme of this paragraph, what truly matters to an analysis of the ascientific nature of classic economics is the all too obvious lack of objectivity and a wider, humanist point of view of the field.
Indeed, today the economic policies of the western world cater systematically to the elite of stock-owners of corporations and follows the praxis of the myths established by earlier practitioners and as a result of this subjective, tribal and religious point of view it fails to predict the future and certainly it fails to serve the needs of the 99% of human population.
Two simple examples of this ideological distortion that considers the arguments of the modern founders of neo-classic, Intelligent Design in economics, Mr. Hayek and Mr. Friedman against true scientists of the discipline (Mr.Myrdal and Mr. Samuelson) will suffice:
Mr. Friedman, founder of the dominant Chicago School of Economics, dared to affirm that the scientific method of collection of data was secondary in Economics to argumentation. That is, data did not matter, only ‘logic arguments’, which can be easily twisted always to favor corporations. Samuelson, the last of the great Keynesian scientists of economics, argued against such absurd inversion of the scientific method.
One could imagine that in the XX century, after 400 years of science a serious University would have fired Mr. Friedman for such esoteric beliefs. But on the contrary he was heralded as the new master of the discipline and he is now the most influential economist among practitioners of the ‘dismal discipline’.
The anti-quantum paradox.
Why? We must bring here another scientific Paradox, which is at the core of the problems of the ‘dismal science’, the anti-quantum paradox:
Unlike in the quantum paradox of uncertainty in which the human scientist and its instruments of measure are so big that influence the observable, in social sciences the human scientist is so small in size and power compared to the observable, the industrial nation, its corporations, owners and rulers that at the end of the day, the system influences social scientists with their military and financial power, corrupting this science and creating an inverse but very real uncertainty: objective scientists that criticize the collateral effects of corporations in mankind or ask for policies that cater to the 99% are not published by the Industry of ‘misinformation’ and the think tanks and academic institutions paid by those corporations, that rule the field.
So most pay-per-view theorists in the field will favor the point of view of corporations, machines, weapons and money – their source of power – which therefore must be considered always positive to mankind.
And those practitioners of the anti-quantum paradox who elaborate the most complicated, convincing arguments in favor of such word-view, as Mr. Friedman, will become the geniuses and gurus that everybody quotes and influence the policies of corporations and the politicos that depend on their money for their campaigns and elections.
Thus the anti-quantum paradox divides social scientists, specifically economists in 2 groups – those who get exposure but are full of ‘damned lies and statistics’, the ‘savant idiots’ (Galbraith) or ‘knowns’ unknowns; and those who get no exposure, are censored but are full of human truths, the ‘silent savants’ and ‘unknown’ knowns – among which, if the ‘unknown’ reader allows me a bit of self-promotion I consider myself (-: regardless of the classification of this blog by the Internet Giant monopolist Mr. Google, as a web with minimal content of truth, hence invisible to google searches )-:
– The majority of the ‘savant idiots’ are economists who work for corporations and so they adopt their point of view. Yet, since those corporations make a living overproducing and selling weapons and machines for a profit, regardless of their collateral effects on mankind and life it becomes self-evident that any social scientist that works for corporations cannot explain the trade off that exists between overproducing only industrial goods and fiat money who caters to the 1% of corporative owners and their profits vs. overproducing welfare goods that cater to most of mankind. They will systematically choose the 1% p.o.v. that pays them.
So the recurrent crisis of overproduction of memes of metal and their collateral effects of extinction of life and human ethics, of poverty and scarcity of welfare goods and labor, substituted by overproduction of weapons, war and mechanical labor cannot be explained.
But since those overproduction crises are the essence of the economic process during the industrial revolution, they are the main field which scientific economics should study.
On the other hand, the second side of the ‘corporative coin’, financial corporations have as only goal to reproduce digital money without limit and keep as much as they can for themselves; or lending it to the industries that give the higher profits; which are those who have lower costs of reproduction (digital software) or higher price of sale (weapons). This means that financial corporations reproduce money without limit, provoking crisis of ‘fiat money’, worthless digital money so abundant in this crisis, which has null value, and when exchanged by real money and goods, ruins society. Further on they lend it to digital companies that make software suites, chips and robots that annihilate human labor, or to weapons companies that lobby for war and create a neo-fascist society, where democratic and human rights are ignored.
Yet again, economists who work on those companies and get the highest salaries cannot criticize the unjust, antidemocratic monopoly of creation of money by those financial corporations; their ab=use of credit, which they deviate towards industrial and military systems of higher profits, disregarding the needs of credit of human companies that produce human labor and welfare goods.
This means that most economists who want to make a living, cannot do ‘science’, cannot study their discipline, cannot explain the biological nature of machines and its overproduction crisis. So they must find ‘thin air’ themes (Orwell) to write papers, which explains the meaningless, abstract nature of most economical thought, unrelated to the real problems of this science and the almost null study of the relationships between history and economics and the reasons why the wealth of nations are maximized during war periods.
Essentially the majority of economists do NOT care to explain the nature of the eco(nomic)system but merely work for corporations, creating the world of machines and money that makes obsolete the world of life and ethic, survival words and laws, or if they are theoretical economists they work to ‘invent’ rhetoric, complicated arguments based in ‘damned lies and statistics’, mathematical abstractions or false premises that justify the actions of corporations and hide those collateral effects.
While a minority of economists and social scientists, often as this writer coming from more ‘serious’ disciplines of science (in my case systems sciences, biology and theory of information) or from the field of history, which studies human societies or from the field of ‘human goods’ – ranging from medicine to agriculture as it is the case of Quesnay or Galbraith, have developed a true science of economics, mostly in the theoretical realm, as the anti-quantum paradox has prevented us from imposing the praxis of an economical sustainable science of economics that could have easily designed a world paradise made to our image and likeness.
C) FINALLY WE CAN COME TO THE 3RD LEG OF THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD: TRUE SCIENCES Predict the future as have been doing with those biological models since our first books in the subject 20 years ago:
Here its curious cover, written with the jargon of evolutionary economics, published by bookmasters 20 yeas ago. the reader can observe the exatitude of the kondratieff cycle of evolution of machines, whose age of minds of metal ended in 2008, 72+8 years after the 1929 crash that inaugurated the age of minds of metal.
All those cycles and overproduction crisis can be studied in more or less detail, as separate crisis (so we could consider the crisis of overproduction of e-money apart from the crisis of overproduction of robots), but a proper analysis requires to study them in parallel as all of them are triggered by a new ‘family’ of ‘energies and informative machines’.
Those cycles illustrated in the first graph over its author are called in abstract economics, the Kondratieff cycles of evolution of machines and they have an exact periodicity of 72 years (1), which is the human biological cycle, as each ‘national generation’ of founding fathers, sons and decadent grand sons, have discovered a new form of energy applied to transport machines and weapons, used to conquer the world (British Steam Age, German Age of electro-mechanical engines and American age of Computers). This final phase overlaps with a new age of discovery.
And so for those who have some economic education, the exact dates are 36 years of discovery generation +36 years of overproduction ENDED in a FINANCIAL CRASH (1857-1929-2001) with short 8 years ripples (1863, 1937, 2008), which plummet the world into war for profits for another 36 years:
So after 1863 the colonial and train wars extended on the planet; after 1937 the tank and plane wars started in Earnest, first in China and Spain then all over the world. And now we are building robotic terminators all over the planet for any excuse. For example China and Japan to patrol some empty islands; America of course in his Orwellian war on terror that has blown up the wars of Apartheid Israel and Yihad Islam to global proportions. The zeitgeist though requires the mass-media hate speeches of Tvs and the financial backing of Wall Street, the oil rich fundamentalist Muslims, you name it. Hate media has no borders. The process of misinformation is now global.
The total wave is thus of 108 years, but the last militaristic phase coincides with the new discovery. So now our militaristic age of vigilante chips coincides wth the firs robots. Hence the confusion of classic scholars in thier study of the Kondratieff wave:
36 years discovery – 36 overproduction of peaceful train machines / crash 1857-63/
36 wars of trains and discovery of oil and cars – 36 overproduction of peaceful cars/crash 1929-37
36 wars of planes and cars and discovery of mental machines – 36 overproduction of chips and tvs / crash of 2001-08
36 wars of vigilante chips and discovery of robots – 36 years of overproduction of robots and hate internet / crash of 2079-> robotic wars with machines so evolved (Artificial Intelligence that humans have no chance).
We live now the last of those transition cycles. The crash of the e-money economy or chip age and the beginning of the military age of robotics. Thus the present crisis is much deeper than the Mortgage e-money overproduction anecdote, reason why I was able to forecast it 20 years in advance, once i resolved the correct periodicity of the wave (1).
KONDRATIEFF considered though a shorter economic cycle of 108/2=54 years, which is equivalent to our cycle, 108/3=36 years; where the crashes of the economy come at 2/3rds of the entire cycle of new energies and machines, at 72±8 years.
The limits of Kondratieff work (1) have to be understood within the limits of the science of its age. The fact that the cycle was not properly defined till my previous cover-book is due to the origin of the cycle (socialist school) which sanitized its use in the west just to make a buck in the stock-market.
On the other hand we can consider the record of classic economics in the finding of future predictions.
Of course many economists with the usual chuptzah of a discipline of ‘damned lies and statistics’, call themselves forecasters, but they NEVER predicted a future crisis.
In fact, as we explain somewhere else, its ‘organ’ of ideological power, The Economist tested future indicators among garbage collectors, taxi drivers, scholars of classic economics and financial ministers and taxi drivers and garbage collectors using just ‘common sense’ came on top. While the predictions of financial ministers were the worst as they just use ideologies of a rossy future that have nothing to do with reality.
Such is the state of the ‘dismal science’…
So returning to the real science of biological cycles of evolution of machines… the key point is crash point. Of course, financial economists are interested on those crashes.
So they divide the total wave in 2 BECAUSE THEIR USE IS ONLY FOR STOCK-MARKET SPEcuLATION AND HAVE NOT RELATED THE WAVE TO HISTORIC CHANGE AS WE DO
Further on, since Kondratieff a Marxist scholar who was refining the study of those overproduction crisis – the core discovery of Mr. Marx, which of course is still censored by our ‘economic experts’ despite being widely used in all stock-market speculative schemes – studied the wave of overproduction of trains in Russia, an underdeveloped nation, where the train arrived latter, fully developed.
Unfortunately the ‘so called’ dismal science of financial and industrial economics is heavily censored, reason why you have never heard about my pioneer books that explained this crisis from an economic and historic point of view… 20 years ago. But why economists since Marx described the first crisis have censored the objective facts of the Industrial R=evolution of machines, in both CAPITALIST AND COMMUNIST countries? Because of course, capitalist countries are dictatorships of corporations that make money overproducing those machines and moneys. And Communist countries are military dictatorships which systematically overproduceweapons.
So Mr. Kondratieff ended in Siberia and this writer who published the first account of the crisis at the end of his studies in Columbia University will never be invited by our ‘expert banksters’ to explain why they are just doing every wrong motion fascist economists did in the 30s to destroy the world. And needless to say, the mere mention of Mr. Marx’s overproduction crisis after centuries of propaganda against his work in BOTH systems, means most ‘savant idiots’, the scholars of the ‘dismal discipline’ WILL abandon this blog, and the happy slaves of corporations, the believers in capitalism will follow suit.
Since corporations rule the world, have bought politicos and imprint the minds of mankind, it is easy to predict as we shall in this central post the past cycles, causes, consequences, details of this crisis and future cycles. Because corporations are automatic systems of evolution, reproduction and sale of machines, and machines are objects that evolve imitating your organisms, and so we can predict the future of the robotic age, the Darwinian fight for jobs between humans and machines, the extinction of labor by them, the extinction of humans in war, the degradation of your mind with hate-speeches – all what happened in the 30s.
THE SECOND STEP OF THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD IS finding a rational model to explain WHAT IS HAPPENING AND PREDICT THE FUTURE.
But only evolution is a rational theory of how the future is designed in biological systems as the Earth, Gaia, mankind and the machines we do imitating our life organs are.
Thus it is evident that THE ONLY rational, economical MODEL IS BIOLOGICAL, AS WE LIVE IN A BIOLOGICAL WORLD AND WE ARE BIOLOGICAL BEINGS. BUT EVOLUTION IS FORBIDDEN even in the concession of Nobel prizes.
The scientific truth about the economic ecosystem – an evolving world of machines sometimes competing with man, sometimes enhancing our energy and information skills, in a process that can be described with the laws of biological competition and symbiosis – has very little to do with the ‘dismal science’ of financial economics that dominates the field, controlling prizes and think-tanks to the service of corporations.
What this means is that ‘economics’ and its practitioners unlike historians who always side with mankind, side routinely with corporations and machines, whenever a conflict between both species arises.
Already Owens in the XIX century described ‘saloon economists here in London’ as dilettantes whose only job was to find excuses to justify the exploitation of workers by corporations who paid them.It still is. Yet since corporations are in its immense majority company-mothers of machines, its parts, energies, networks and information, the dismal science is always ‘positive’ about overproduction crisis. Which is the ultimate reason of this crisis THAT NOBODY IN THE IDEOLOGICAL FIELD OF ‘INTELLIGENT DESIGN’ HAS TRIED OR CARE TO EXPLAIN.
What all those cycles prove according to the scientific method of:
A) gathering of data, B) finding of patterns C) prediction of cycles
and D) sound praxis in favor of mankind that solves the crisis…
is the ‘scientific nature’ of economics, when we do not censor Data and accept the ideologies of corporations, ‘classic economics’ as the only ‘sound’ form of economical science.
Those crises were first explained by the socialist school during the train age and then by the Keynesian school after W.W. II.
They were tabulated by Kondratieff (in the background image), who studied the Train cycle in Russia. But, they have been censored ever since, given the fact that they increase enormously the profits of corporations (today again at all time high). So its collateral effects on mankind – the destruction of the welfare state (underproduced as all resources are spent in the industrial and financial sector) and the social peace of nations (as poverty spreads and overproduction of weapons controls people) – are the biggest taboo of economic scholarship, all over the world.
So when the second overproduction crisis of ‘german engines’, cars and tanks and automated assembly lines happened in the 30s its causes were heavily censored. Marx had become by then a taboo scholar BOTH, in capitalist and communist societies, (despite lip service paid to Marxist theories by communist dictators and the use of Kondratieff cycles in speculative predictions in The City and Wall Street), for two obvious reasons:
– In the west, because corporations profit enormously overproducing fiat money; new, more evolved working machines and new weapons that rise the productivity of factories, displace human labor, are wasted and bought once and again in wars and in all those cases increase profits of corporations. So we have built a ‘religion of profits’ that prevents any analysis of the crisis.
– In the East because Marx and Lenin described the end of those overproduction crisis, when markets for peaceful consumption are saturated and industrial system switch to production of weapons. Yet as Orwell described in ‘animal farm’, this is exactly what happened also in all communist countries after Stalin took over and murdered millions of true r=evolutionaries.
Then all communist nations became a caricature of what Marx explained about Western ‘capitalist democracies’ that would become automated systems of evolution and overproduction of tool machines that WILL end up replacing all human labor, and weapons that will consume human beings and cause endemic cycles of war. Today of course, the last ‘big communist country’, China is just a mixture of a military dictatorship and a capitalist, overproducing factory of chips. While the west is deeply involved in ‘Keynesian militarism’, the ‘newspeak’ for the Capitalist solutions to the crisis: ‘canons instead of butter’.
And indeed now blue collar and white collar workers are ending human labor; communist countries became all military dictatorships overeproducing weapons (hence just another version of the fascist states that overeproduced weapons to come out of the 29 crisis). While war-monger politicians from Hitler to Bush profit enormously of their increase of power and ‘deals’ with the military industry, when ‘canons instead of butter’ become the preferred solution to the crisis.
And so Marx, the socialist school who forecasted and gave solutions to the first crisis, and Keynes and his consumption, welfare school who forecasted and gave solutions to the second crisis are taboo for political and economical power. And of course this writer who improved upon their work and published about the future crisis and its solutions, 20 years ago, is an absolute unknown, heavily censored since his first books came out at the end of its Columbia Master.
So a huge part of this web (section on zeitgeist and newspeaks) is dedicated to explain how the ‘religion of profits’ and ‘classic economics’, a sort of ‘Intelligent Design’ that dominates this science, prevents humans to rationally understand in biological, evolutionary terms, the Industrial Revolution, its company-mothers and offspring of machines and the cycles and relationships of symbiosis and competition between both species (‘Intelligent Design’ is so pervading in economics that the Nobel Prize cannot be given by decree to evolutionary economics).
This massive censorship started in earnest in the post II world war age, when new forms of censorship against the economic causes of the war were implanted in the subconscious collective with the help of audiovisual media and subtle methods (political, and economical correctness, industry of the holocaust, etc) which ultimately used the memetic processes of manufacturing rains discovered by Goebbels – if you repeat a lie many times people will believe it.
Thus overproduction crises became a taboo whenever anyone tried to explain the economical causes of the war due to the overproduction of ‘German-American electro-mechanical Engines’. But paradoxically the Kondratieff cycle, sanitized of any rational explanations would be used routinely to predict stock trends ever since, albeit with a shorter periodicity of 54 years corrected by this author in the 90s to its exact ‘generational, national cycle’ of 72 years.
Thus 20 years ago I forecasted the next ‘node’ of overproduction crisis to take place in 2001 and 2008, 72 years after the 29-37 nodes as it has been the case (1).
Of course, the reader will by now probably abandoned this web, perfectly imprinted by all the new forms of censorship, that trigger emotional reactions against this blog, kept under a minimal, almost zero exposure for decades (before as http://www.futuremagazine.net): he will think this web is a ‘confabulation theory’ against which he has been forewarned. He will jump as if the devil is mentioned after hearing the taboo words distorted and imprinted in his mind as errors or pure evil – from Marx to socialism, from Keynes to welfare state, from deficit to nationalization; he will have that ‘deja vu’ experience origin of Goebbels method that ‘he knew all this’. He will of course, if he is an economist, bring about all his ‘savant idiocy’ of complicated arguments, edited for 2 centuries to back the system. As he has imprinted his mind with Mr. Smith, Mr. Ricardo and Mr. Friedman who explain him that overproducing machines, e-money and weapons is always positive for mankind, it is progress, it is the future, it is the guidance of the ‘invisible hand of go(l)d’.
In that regard, instead the canonical solution are still: nationalization of financial industries to implement massive welfare, Keynesian credit to the sectors of life-based human goods men need to survive and are underproduced in this crisis; and halting, even forbidding the evolution of robotics, cause of the labor and war crisis.
But nobody in mainstream media, and power-tanks, financial institutions and governance talk straight on this overproduction crisis, showing how the power of corporations to set the agenda of the world in their favor has increased from the XIX century, when EVERYBODY talked of overproduction crisis (socialist movement) or even the 30s when some (Keynes) talked of it and proposed the humane solutions. Today NOT a single ‘authorized’ economist dare to defy the dictatorship of corporations and the manufacturing of our minds. So the crisis advances towards the next canonical phases – crash of currencies, global robotic wars for profits, hate-media, blaming on the poor, destruction of welfare.
Indeed, the readers should understand that the praxis of power in social sciences, carried by politicians and corporations and fed by ‘authorized economists and historians’ is NOT the science of history and economics that has been always censored due to the ‘anti-quantum paradox’. The historian and sound economists are so small compared to those groups of power (the military, politicians, bankers) that he is influenced by the observer (the corporation and political system) to adapt his work and please him: ‘You will defend me with the sword and i will defend you with the word’ Tertulianus.
Otherwise the real scientist of history can expect in the past, slavery (Plato), ostracism (Aristotle), crucifixion (Jesus), death in poverty (Marx), house arrest (Spengler), squad fire (Kondratieff), and in the present, when the system is sophisticated enough to eliminate by poverty, silence and ‘ad hominem’ campaigns, null media exposure.
Then once the system is satisfied that ‘his classic solution’, guns instead of butter has no argument or alternative, this will appear as the necessary, only solution within the ‘best possible system’, ‘democratic capitalism’ and so we will walk confident, and happy towards our self-extinction into a period of massive r=evolutions, social crisis, war, fascism and final holocaust of all those who during the ‘ominous decade’ covered up all the process, to keep profits coming sacrificing their lives and nations to the fetishe of go(l)d.
In that regard the monolithic censorship by industrial and financial corporations and the politicos that work for them of the real causes of the crisis ensures that we can prophesize it in his development, as business as usual will continue self-destroying the world. What all these people who run the system expect fort hat future? To end the world in an age of robotic wars as we ended in an age of car=tank and plane=bomber wars? The magic solution of the crisis by some divine ‘invisible hand of go(l)d’? The answer is that they do not expect anything. They just live the day, go through each short-sighted phase of the crisis without being blamed from it. While economists expect to keep their profits rising while the population ignores what is happening to them. In that regard, a true scientist of economics and history must depart from a difficult truth: that we human beings have a single outstanding property, ‘our ego’, shown in our myths of superiority over the biological laws of this planet, in the astounding distance between what we think of ourselves and our freedoms and our intelligence to manage the world and what we really are as a species and individuals. Or in words of Mr. Marx ‘r=evolutionaries will change many things but they will not change the human condition’.
In that sense, this blog is a ‘mature work’, in the line of Mr. Orwell or Mr. Marx latter books, as I do not expect either the elites that run the system or the sheeple that loves those who murder them, any reaction of a species that lives a virtual fantasy of power, expertise and control in a world it neither understands nor wants to. Indeed, we social scientists that try to predict the future commit the ‘young error’ of believing our species is worth to save, it is rational and it will improve the world. Those who rule the system commit the same error – regarding only themselves – they think they can exploit the system, cheat the people, take the profits and nobody will notice. The facts though of history show the incompetence, utter selfishness, minuscule vision and ‘damned lies’ and statistics of the elites destroy the system BUT keep evolving and improving the world of corporations and machines. While the mass FOLLOWS them, and cheers in orwellian fashion, ‘4 legs good 2 legs better’. While the only ‘rara avis’ are us, the social scientists. The rest is a deja vu symphony of continuous evolution of ‘memes of metal’ and happy self-destruction of humans, which only after all is passed, the overproduction of weapons brings the cycle of war and holocausts and destroys rhythmically each civilization, suddenly ‘realize’ all was a fantasy of ‘pumping iron’. Problem is when the robotic age of war ends, the Industrial Evolution will be compLeted, and a new autonomous species will roam the Earth – the terminator weapon; in an age in which Robotic corporations will have the power that in this cycle had electronic corporations and in the past car and train corporations… As today, June 2013, when the UNO has rejected under the influence of the Jewish-American military lobby, a moratorium on the creation of Terminator weapons, we can certify that future.
But the Universe is just, and so in the same fashion an animal or a child cannot understand death, we can expect in this neo-paleolithic age of mental degeneration that the lot of mankind, just an emotional animal, with a foggy brain increasingly taylored with all kind of ideologies that make him idolize the machine and the weapon that degrades him, will walk merrily into its own self-extinction thinking perhaps they will be raptured by some goatkeeper of the bronze age, or their experts are solving their problems, their armies are defending their nations and the crisis will soon be over. I have lived 1/2 century in this planet, 1/2 of it fully aware of the future, seeing it developing in front of my eyes, MOUTH-STRAPPED by all kind of subtle forms of censorship and all what i can say is, without the slightest doubt that we, humans are done with if business as usual proceeds (maximal probability in the graph) and that WE all, predatory wolves disguised as experts and good people, sheeple and the rara avis steppenwolf that only comments on it, DESERVE IT. Since we were unable to ‘love each other’ as a single species, control the bad fruits of the tree of science and create a world to our image and likeness, but instead enslaved for the ‘selfish memes of metal’ that will destroy us. And we have been forewarned since the age of Genesis parable to the times of this blog, and have just laughed at the laws of the Darwinian Universe. But ‘those who change truth with the tools of power will be the laughs of the god’… A. Einstein
It only rests the last cycle, the age of the Singularity and A.I. robotic life; WHICH AS ALWAYS IN A NEW SPECIES IT IS BORN AS A TOP PREDATOR, in this case robotic weapons, which as we speak faces the last attempt of manknd to stop legally its development.
Since the UNO moratorium is opposed by the cult(ure) of go(l)d, and biblical supremacism that accordidng to the anti-quantum paradox rules with ‘Intelligent Desgin’, this science and will let mankind die for the sake of the profits and reproduction of machines.
This is our prediction if the World is continually ruled by corporations and their ideology of Intelligent Design according to which weapons, money and machines, the memes of metal are symbols of god we must always evolve for profits, the fetishe-gold that will open us the paradise.
Unfortunately all that are ‘damned lies and statistics’ that have never as we have just shown respected the 4 tenants of the scientific method that:
A) seeks for non-anthropomorphic data, B) introduces that data in a pattern of cycles and C) makes predictions of future cycles.
This is NOT something classic economics as an ideology of power RESPECTS. IN FACT Mr. Friedman, the founder of neoclassic economics had the chuptzah to say that Economics does NOT need to gather real data because IT ONLY MATTERS the logic arguments – meaning obviously the Ideology.
That is why economists never predict the future – to the point The Economist laughed at the fact his polls on the crisis WERE BETTER GUESSED BY taxi drivers and trash pickers in London than by Economic Ministers and Deans of recognized Universities.
But we have always done it with startling results. And so now we must also consider the 4th point of a true science of economics …
II. THE THERETICAL, HUMAN SOLUTIOSN TO THE CRISIS
‘The Economist’, the high priest of this science made a test of the ‘scientific nature’ of economics, affirming that it should be able to predict the future as sciences did, testing taxi drivers, garbage collectors, ministers of economy and neo-classic scholars on future indicators of growth and unemployment. Result: taxi drivers came first close to garbage collectors. Why? Because they used just common sense while economists and ministers used all the LIES OF THIS PSEUDO-SCIENCE OR IDEOLOGY THAT JUST CATERS TO THE ROSSY, FALSE future sold by corporations. But would you put your health and life in the hands of quacks that pass as doctors? So that is what mankind is doing.
Understand this: economists and bankers are NOT the scientists of economics, as the military and the politicos are NOT the scientists of history but the people who use MONEY, weapons and machines to impose their power. And the people who cater to them since Tertulianus put it neatly” ‘you will defend me with the sword and I will defend you with the word’.
Which leads to the D) point of the scientific method that we will treat extensively at the end of this page: the null capacity of Intelligent Design in Economics to ‘design intelligently’ a world made to our image and likeness, as human beings NOT to the image and likeness of the machines that give profits to corporations.
FINALLY we have come to the last point of a true science of economics and history, which paradoxically USES THE TRUTHS OF AN OBJECTIVE NON-HUMAN POINT OF VIEW, TO BEND REALITY TO FAVOR MANKIND. This is in an opposite fashion to what Intelligent Design does: to deny the objective point of view, the power of machines and corporations, as biological organisms, and then to deny the human praxis by sheeplishly subconsciously moved by the fetishe of money accumulation, direct the world according to the biological will of companies, favoring their reproduction of memes of metal. Instead a human science of economics and history will acknowledgely humbly the limits of life and this planet Gaia, and control therefore the unlimited reproduction of selfish memes of metal, promoting the reproduction of human goods.
What goods are thoe? In the next frame of reference we use the laws of biology that consider human positive goods those who increase our evolution as individuals, improving our bodies, minds and social organisms, as positive goods that should have positive value, and the negative goods that harm our body, mind and social life as negative goods that should be controlled, forbidden and regulated by the economists and politicians that should rule mankind with a human perspective.
In a real democracy, as only existed briefly in r=evolutionary periods in America and Europe, money would be printed as ‘nomisma’, a language of information as the law is, handed to the people through a Universal Salary, as ‘economical voting power’ used to pay the goods voters require, giving ‘demand’ orders of production to welfare companies that would provide us with our needs. Instead in capitalism, money is created by financial and industrial corporations in stock-markets and computer platforms to overproduce their ‘offspring’ of machines, while people are extorted of their money with taxes, which are also handed to corporations or used to subvention the military-industrial complex and make war.
The issue of electronic money in its immense majority (95% of credit) by the ‘Free Citizens’ of Markets, which are not human beings but Corporations NOT by the people or their representatives, is the REAL cause of the endemic scarcity of human goods that cater to our survival (represented in the graph), and the overproduction of machines and weapons, as those company-mothers of machines spend all their money in the overproduction and evolution of their offspring of machines. For that reason we humans are poor and corporations are rich; we humans lack basic needs, like food and education and machines have all electricity… But this choice of investing all our resources in the future of machines NOT in our future is hidden by the ideologies of our ‘technological civilization’.
In the graph, the all too obvious dual solution to the political, economical and existential crisis of mankind
– The issue of ‘yes money’, a new global currency, fusion of the major currencies, Yuan, Yen, Euro and Dollar, at parity levels, 1 Eurodollar=20 yuans = 100 yens, adjusted internally by price, with rights to be printed for and by the people and its governments to kick out a global New Deal, impossible to tumble by speculators (as it would be truly the reference for all other prices).
– And the use of the UNO and other international agencies and forums to create systematically legislation that limits the lethal goods of the industrial r=evolution, specifically the most dangerous of them, robotics that will evolve, displace man of labor and war fields and ultimately according to the laws of evolution, substitute us a the top predator species of this planet.
What opposes to those self-evident solutions to create a human like paradise on Earth based in the most desire, biological, natural goods that our ‘program of biological existence’ determines – illustrated on the bottom of the graph – is NOT the sound nature of those policies, but the selfishness or anti-human goals of financial and industrial corporations, whose lobbies control today the issue of money and through that issue, the policies of our politicos and will deviate those issues to rhetoric, placebo freedoms till the system becomes too chaotic and over powerful in a jungle of metal where man will have no future, but will be ‘happy’ living a virtual reality of ‘fantasy ideologies’ and dream-like ego-trips till one day wakes up to the ‘nightmare of the singularity age.
The democratic, efficient issue of legal money.
However in an efficient democratic system, made to the image and likeness of the efficient organisms of Nature, money would not be issued to earn usury and promote warfare but will be free of usury and would promote human welfare.
When the nervous and blood systems – the languages of information akin to the law and money of a natural organism – give orders to cells they do NOT expect to get back them overcharged. This ONLY IS ALLOWED when the orders are wrong and the cell can deliver back a PAIN ORDER to the brain so it behaves. And this indeed, is the second element lacking in our democracies to be true democracies, latter explained with more detail:
– The free issue by the government’s brain of bills of law and bills of money to kick out the ‘actions’ of the body cells of the social organism.
– The existence of a systematic judgment process NOT only an election, AT THE END OF EACH TENURE of a civil servant, equivalent to the capacity of the cells to send pain messages to the brain. Indeed, politicos can scam people because they are NOT JUDGED on their promises fulfillment. So after tenure, the voters should poll again to either penalize the civil servant with A) Jail for clear crimes of embezzlement and social murder; B) financial penalties equivalent to his salary for inefficient job C) equal salary reward for outstanding job D) Re-election for a second and third tenure… Thus by mimicking a social organism – which is always the natural model we scientists should follow in the design of historic and economical ones, a true democracy would be achieved holding politicos responsible.
Thus it is obvious after this introduction to the science of money and the meaning of democracy that the crisis is a CRISIS OF the system, which is NOT properly designed but created by the primitive thinking of historic cult(ure)s of Gold.
And that 2 elements of a real democracy are missed in all our societies – the issue of nomisma, legal money as orders of work, by elected governments, obliged to respect and provide the voters with the promises they made… if they don’t want to be judged…
It is thus evident that the crisis will NOT be solved unless the system changes and a real democracy in which people is handed money issued free of usury and politicos are hold responsible of their promises is established. And this can only be done by a real, physical r=evolution against the ‘Bastille’ of European and American capitalism (Wall Street and the ECB bank, Brussels and the corrupted politicos of Washington) or by a true ‘leader’ of democracy, an ‘Asimovian mule’ that ‘refunds’ our social systems according to the laws of natural, efficient, social organisms in which all the cells-citizens of the body receive enough energy and information to survive.
Man should recognize the primacy of man and hence of his language, the law over machines and money IF WE WANT TO SURVIVE AND HAVE A FUTURE on this planet. Thus we design the proper, efficient models of history and economics with the laws of systems sciences and biology, as offshoots of human disciplines. And affirm that money MUST be ‘nomisma’, fiat, legal money issued by governments and the people to create a just sustainable human world made to the image and likeness of our species…
A social, free democracy & demand economy could create a world paradise.
The solution is obvious: a real democracy that caters to the need of the people and it is efficient, as social organisms made by nature are requires at least 3 elements:
– The control of the 2 languages of social power by the collective brain of the organism, the informative/nervous legal system and the financial, blood, energetic one. Otherwise the organism is totally dysfunctional. Imagine your body with two ‘siamese’ heads, each one going a different way, or more accurately with a brain giving nervous/informative/legal orders of motion left, when the heart/blood/economic/financial system acts independently moving the body right. In your body the nervous/informative/legal system CONTROLS the economic/blood system and uses both to ‘feed’ with right information and energy ALL the cells of the body, even if the neuronal ‘people-caste’ obtains 10 times more energy for its commanding role.
Today the system is even worst. It is called a cancer: there is an astounding minority, the 1% of stockratic owners of corporations, with a managerial ±9% that have absolute rights to the entire blood/financial system of the body and give none back, as cancers do, multiplying their wealth, and extracting the meager resources of the rest of the body – a bloated, mindless liver that absorbs all the healthy blood and sends poisonous ‘memes of metal’, weapons and hate-media to the rest of the body. It is like a leukemia, in which the brain of the cell – our verbal, ethic, humanist laws that made us reproduce the welfare goods we need and love and share energy and information with other cells as healthy bodies do – is substituted by the DNA of the virus – our ideologies of human hate, selfish ego-trips, homo bacteria behavior, and techno-utopias that consider machines not life the meaning of it all – that make us reproduce only the viral DNA, poisoning our planet.
Instead we should select through a financial system owned by the brain-goverment, the good fruits of the tree of science that make us survive and evolve our brains and forbid those who kill us and trash our brains. So we would have massive investment in health care, housing, agriculture, education, humanist sciences, tourism, languages, environment, infrastructures, non-fiction information (documentaries free press), a credit handled by nationalized financial industries to private entrepreneurs in all those sectors, who would maximize the efficiency of individual entrepreneurship and the public rationale of non-profiteering bankers, just civil servants with the job of selecting the best purposes for credited companies. While those companies who create lethal machines for our body and brain will have null credit or would be legally banned, despite its higher profits (as weapons and digital trash software are the most profitable goods, in mathematical, economic equations: profits = Maximal price (weapons, the most perfect, top predator machines) – Minimal cost (digital software, that reproduces easily with no limit).
Finally labor will be the goal not productivity, which is exactly the opposite equation of labor. Since productivity=machines/labor, grows when we put more machines and fire more workers: ∆Productivity=∆Machine-capital/Labor
This equation, so simple and easy to understand that a school student can explain it is the mantra of our corporations and corrupted politicians, who tell us the anti-truth that rising productivity will create labor, when it does the opposite.
What those equations of productivity by firing workers and profits by creation of lethal machines tell us is several things:
– Machines compete with humans in labor and war fields and corporations are promoting those who destroy our lives, because their purpose is not human. It is to create a world made to the image and likeness of their offspring of machines, and so they need ideologies that justify that destruction, which are better served in a language we do NOT understand.
– the corruption of the political system is so absolute that they are pushing all the policies that destroy labor and life and citizen’s wealth to service corporations and bankers. So this leads to the 3rd measure (after a real control of the 2 languages of social power by elected governmetns) – a real democracy that ensures politicos will not be corrupted employees, puppets-clowns, house-negroes et al of those corporations, or else citizens can easily penalize them harshly. And again the model to achieve such perfect democracies is Nature and its perfect mammal organisms.
– Indeed the organism is also a perfect democracy, because those commanding neurons are JUDGED-VOTED a posteriori, with PAIN messages by a feed-back nervous power given to the cells. This means in a perfect democracy there would be also a VOTE at posteriori which will allow citizens to penalize those politicians AND BANKERS to the service of the people that ABSORB MORE ENERGY than they are allowed, or lie and do NOT try to accomplish their programs.
A real democracy will vote first in open lists NOT TO PARTIES BUT TO PEOPLE, because there is only a ‘natural social science’ whose purpose would be to BUILD A PERFECT WORLD, ACCORDING TO THE LAWS OF NATURE, designing a perfect social organism that caters to the need of all mankind. So the choice is not of two siamese parties to the service of corporations but of individuals, ethic and intelligent enough to make the best of the resources of this planet. But the main vote would be a posteriori with penalties of jail for crimes against life or fines for monetary gain (negative, pain messages), or re-election for a job well done, or a salary pension if the politician retires.
THE CORPORATION COMPETES WITH OUR GOVERNMENTS AS A SYSTEM THAT IS MORE EFFICIENTLY DESIGNED, AND ITS OFF-SPRING OF MACHINES COMPETE WITH HUMAN IN LABOR AND WAR FIELDS. IF ECONOMISTS WERE HUMANISTS, THIS WOULD BE EXPLAINED, CORPORATIONS REGULATED ACCORDING TO THE USEFULNESS OF THEI PRODUCTS TO MANKIND AND HUMANS WOULD TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEM FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT.
BUT UNDER INTELLIGENT DESIGN NOTHING OF THIS IS EXPLAINED OR THE 1% WHO OWE TO THEIR RACIST MEMES OF RELIGIOUS ORIGIN THEIR WORSHIP OF THOSE MEMES OF METAL, MONEY, WEAPONS AND MACHINES, AS A GIFT OF GOD, A SYMBOL OF PROGRESS THAT CANNOT BE EXAMINED AND REGULATED, we walk in a single path:
– All what is good for financial and industrial corporations, must happen. Overproduction of money and machines must happen. And if men suffer, bad luck is the will of God.
We live in a system in which a new top predator ‘organism’ the company-mother of machines rules the world for its off-spring of different species and all human institutions, including human governments and human minds, are becoming corrupted, degraded and atrophied by the evolving machines of the new species.
In the posts dedicated to corporations and global markets, we shall observe that the design of the corporation and the global stock-market is a perfect design, matching with astounding precision the most efficient mammal organisms of the planet – reason why we truly admire the efficiency of corporations. What is missed here is the fact that we are not machines, that corporations cater for the rival species, that their efficiency is our dismissal, the the better designed those weapons and digital corporations are the faster we will be eliminated, that the more they overproduce those lethal goods the less resources we will have.
SO WHERE THIS INTELLIGENT DESING LEAD US?
To a world which is no longer human, but an eco(nomic)system built to the image and likeness of machines and its increasingly automated company-mothers, in which men are expendable and already unneeded, as consumption of machines by machines increases geometrically.
4. THE DESIGN OF A PERFECT WORLD WITH THE PRAXIS OF ECONOMICS.
So we can now arrive to the alst point of a true ciene of economics, the design of a better world for mankind. What intelligent design in economics is doing is killing the world.
What is sad IS THAT THE PRAXIS OF THIS SCIENCE, WHICH IS THE DESIGN OF A PERFECT WORLD ACCORDING TO THE BIOLOGICAL LAWS OF SOCIAL ORGANISMS WILL NOT BE USED BY MANKIND TO SURVIVE AND CREATE A PERFECT WORLD.
III. THE IDEOLOGY OF FINANCIAL ECONOMICS. THE BATTLE FOR THE ISSUE OF MONEY
Money from the perspective of biohistory and theory of information
The first question of a bio-economic analysis of money is to determine what makes money so special in history. Why money has so much value? Why it has substituted even the natural verbal values of man? Why is man attracted to money, despite its negative side-effects throughout history? How does money hypnotize and control man so completely? How can we define it?
Economists as most social scientists do not have objective definitions of their elements. If our civilization still has not astoundingly defined machines, the main element of it, (organic systems of energy and information that imitate and enhance or substitute our own organs), in the case of money, the question is even more startling. Money is defined as (wiki): any object or record that is generally accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts in a given country. Now we have stressed the key word ‘any object’.
This is indeed the ‘objective point of view’. What kind of object? History shows that to exchange money for all other things, money had to be the most valuable object possible. So money has always been in 99% of times and spaces, precious metal, gold, the most informative atom of the Universe. And even though gold has not value in itself, its biological, organic properties, discovered in the millieu of general systems sciences, an organic philosophy of the Universe are clear.
Money is an informative metal (today used in chips) that imitates the light of the sun, hypnotizes our eyes and our minds, and provokes greed, the desire to possess it as all costs. And by doing so it started the evolution of the world of metal in which we live, because it valued also more metal than life unlike our language, verbal thought. In systems science the program of the Universe has certain laws of affinity, complementarity and self-organization that explain why and how money has consequences and a certain ‘intelligence’, which is not exactly the ‘invisible hand of God’ but rather that of the deviL, as it has values against Life. Indeed, words value life as sacred. Money gives no value to life but value metal-weapons as the most expensive good.
Only now when we have understood the laws of all systems we can explain truly the musings of Mr. Adam Smith and discover the truth is exactly the opposite.
Indeed, of all the ideologies that make us slaves of metal none is more powerful, due to its complex, ‘hidden’ values than the effect of ‘gold’ and money on the mind of the human kind. While it is easy to understand the evil=anti-live values of weapons that murder us and it is becoming quite evident that the evolution of robots, which compete with us and are expelling humans from labor and war fields, might extinguish us, according to the laws of Darwinian evolution, money has always been considered ’necessary’, a sort of god-like language, which we must obey. And the hypnotism of gold and our desire to possess it, called greed, the essential, positive treat and engine of capitalism.
Yet economists still lack a proper, non-abstract definition of money and its ‘strange values’ that often deny the values of life (as the most expensive goods are weapons that kill us and the cheapest one life which is our most sacred good).
In this article and the article dedicated to the foundations of capitalism we unveil the scientific, biological reason of those ‘values’, the evolution of money, its properties as a language, and how it is guiding this planet, since it substituted ethic wor(l)ds as the guide of human societies, towards a future in which humans become first objects with a price and then are dismissed as a ‘lesser’ value than the objects money by the natural affinity between memes of metal values more: the machines and weapons on the economic ecosystem.
Thus we shall consider the hidden values of money and what kind of future a society ruled by the language of money will create, and the phases of evolution of money as a language of information.
The substance, form and functions of money.
Money has always possessed three formal characteristics: it is made of metal, gold, silver, copper, today computer machines that reproduce e-money. It is made of cyclical, broken, discontinuous shapes, as all forms that carry in-form-ation. Finally, money, due to this informative property, is the basic unit of mathematical accounting and one of the main reasons why mathematics have been evolved as a language. Thus, money is a language of information whose substances are metal and whose function is to give value to things with digital information. In that sense, money competes with words, because both are languages used by mankind to value reality. And so the fundamental question about money and the future of history, today controlled by monetary orders, is: ‘how money values reality and why those values differ from the values of verbal thought?
In the graph, in terms of its characteristics as an informative language, money has evolved, as all languages do, by increasing its capacity to carry information. It means it has become more quantized into smaller bits of information and it has increases its numbers, its capacity to be reproduced with minimal energy, as it changed substance, from gold to printed paper, to electronic data, which can be invented with a simple computer program. Languages share by definition the properties of information: they are quantized, to be able to have ‘form’; they are small to be able to process that information easily; and they have minimal energy and an enormous ‘fractal’ capacity to reproduce. So money has become smaller, easier to reproduce and more quantized, as a ‘carrier’ of digital information. In that process it has increased the capacity to value more objects and life forms on planet Earth. Today it is so abundant that it can value all beings of the planet, substituting verbal thought in the valuation of reality.
Thus, in the biological and evolutionary models of ‘bio-economics’ we must understand the duality of money, both as a language of information that carries ‘certain values’, different from other languages (human verbal languages) and as a ‘substance’, informative metal, which sets its properties and affinities with the other ‘dominant’ products of an economic ecosystem, weapons and machines.
Money is a language of digital information with support in metal. humans have evolved different digital languages, but none has been more successful than money, due to its support in the most complex atomic substances of the Universe – heavy metal. Yet since money is not a biological, natural language made of life, according to the Complementarity laws of the Universe, which associate by affinity systems of information and energy of the same substance into complex organic systems (so physical entities are made of energetic fields and informative particles and life systems of informative heads and energetic bodies, made of the same substance), gold has always been associated with energetic metal, weapons and lately machines, and used to value and reproduce the economic organism of metal in which we live; since we give the maximal monetary value to weapons.. While in terms of monetary values life has never had a price. This is the ‘hidden agenda’ of a world ruled by the values and language of money, as opposed to a world ruled by the values and language of the ethic Wor(l)d.
The values of money are opposite to those of verbal ethics, since they are ruled by the affinity between 2 complementary substances, the mind and body of the economy: money, a language of informative metal and machines and weapons, energetic metal.
This biological opposition between carbonlife and metalife, brains and informative metal goes to the extreme that the most lethal substances for the human brain are gold and the next atom mercury. A little of it can kill your brain. In the future nano-bacteria will be made with gold DNA immersed in a Mercury dissolving liquid – and that is one of the 3 singularity machines…
Informative metal, money and energetic metal, machines and weapons are similar substances that humans associate together. So we always exchanged the maximal quantity of money for the most perfect machines/weapons, which become in monetary values, due to such Complementarity, the most expensive and reproduced product of the economic ecosystem. Yet the monetary values of weapons are based in their capacity to kill life, the supreme value of human words. Thus, go(l)d values despise and kill the Life-Earth and become in biological terms, a ‘virus’ that kills the values of love and social evolution, the Mind of History, the truths of the Wor(l)d. When those values were substituted by the Values of money and Mechanist Science, mankind became blind to the Human Wor(l)d. Of course, ever since go(l)d appear its values and the despise for life of those ‘animetal cultures’, who practice them, were contested by philosophers of the Wor(l)d from the perspective of the life-enhancing values of our natural language, verbal thought that wants to construct a world made to the image and likeness of man. Yet as money, weapons and machines multiplied, ‘animetal cultures’ increased their power, building a world to the image and likeness of machines. And today almost all humans believe in the values of metal, in greed, in violence and murder, in mechanist scientists, who pretend, we, humans are obsolete, with his myth that only machines reveal the meaning of time and are superior to human senses (scientific method)
Money as a language.
The informative properties of Gold and silver, the most common forms of money throughout history explains the ‘biological’, ‘scientific’, not abstract nature of money, and its economical relationship with weapons (old cycles of history) and company-mothers of machines (modern cycles of economics).
How this properties became the foundations of economical exchanges require to define money now with an equation of linguistics, since all languages respond to what Chomsky defined as the Universal Grammar (of verbal languages) and I extended in my pioneer work on systems sciences as the Universal ternary grammar of all the systems of information of the Universe.
Money is the ‘informative network’ of the eco(nomic)system—a language. Languages are systems of information that certain species use to value reality from their point of view. For example, words are the biological language of man. So we use them to value reality from our human perspective. We are the subject, the predator and actor of verbal sentences. Words love humanity. Humans are supreme in word values, given in the past by religions, today by laws. This is reflected in the Syntax of the verbal language, which always has 3 elements:
— Subject, the actor and center of the sentence.
— Verb, the action the subject exercises on reality.
— Object, the substance used by the action of the subject.
The object of sentences, on the other hand, is possessed by us, humans. It has a lesser value, since it does not talk words. We express that lesser value through verbal languages, when we put first the subject, as actor, then the verb that controls the object and finally the object. Thus, humans are top predators in any sentence, which motivates them to act in favor of their own, selfish drives of existence. Which means that words are anthropomorphic; and those who obey words, tend to act subjectively in favor of mankind (priests, ethic laws). Which gives the following syntax equation of all verbal sentences:
Man (subject) > Verb (action) > Object
Yet when we consider the syntactic sentence of money, it turns out that Money doesn’t favor man. It qualifies him with a salary, a price that values him as it values objects:
Man (salary) =Money = Object (price)
In that equation, the price of both, the machine and the worker, is related to the task they perform. And since objects are specifically made with a task/job in mind, it turns out that as specialized workers, objects are often better than men and have a higher value. This is the case of weapons that kill better than men do. Further on, since objects evolve and humans don’t, the differential of value between humans and machines grows with time. So the first, simplest, syntactic/structural analysis of money shows it degrades humans as objects. Yet if we consider a biologic/physical analysis of money, things get worse.
Indeed, the physical analysis of money relates its primary substance, an informative metal, either gold or silver, with that of its complementary form, energetic metal, weapons, which due to that complementary affinity become the most valuable =expensive good of the economy.
This can be seen in the graph in which we compare the values of man in monetary and verbal terms. If money were a human language, its values should be the same than the verbal values that make human life the most expensive good. And yet the opposite occurs: money values human time (minimal salary) less than energetic metal, weapons and machines.
The result is that money, a language of metal, evolves the economic ecosystem of weapons and machines, not the organisms of history and life. So the values of metal-money are the antithesis of the values of wor(l)ds: life is the cheapest ‘product’ and weapons that kill life, the most expensive – while human life-enhancing goods, from love to food, from Nature to education, have minimal or null monetary value; as they are different substances that cannot be easily related to money. For that reason, all the great ‘prophets’ of verbal thought, masters of the human language, have praised poverty and despised money: Buddha and Lao in Asia, Christ, Mohamed and Moses in the West, Marx in modern ages, all ‘hated’ money. Because money replaces the informative, human, biological, verbal language with its anti-ethic, anti-live=eviL=death values, carried by ‘expensive’ weapons.
Further on, such opposition of values proves against the myths heralded by the corrupted values of animetal cultures that humans follow in his natural state, as verbal beings, the laws of love andsocial evolution. It is gold and weapons what corrupts Rousseau’s ‘good savage’ into an animetal obsessed by greed and murder, which considers himself different from other human beings and applies to them the Darwinian laws against other species.
Languages are subjective. They value more and reproduce those species which possess the language. Thus, verbal thought, the biological language of man, fosters human social evolution and human biological goods. While the ‘values’ of money destroy the ‘ethic values’ that put man at the center of the Universe, making weapons, top predator metals that kill life, the most expensive and reproduced goods. Thus, when money became the language of man, we started to reproduce ‘expensive’ metal and kill ‘cheap’ life. So the opposition of languages and values became translated into a fight between species: man Vs metal. And as money evolved and reproduced in greater numbers, weapons multiplied and life died; and ethic, human values, which made of man the top predator of the Earth, disappeared . . .
And since it values machines and weapons more than any other object, it has multiplied wars and terraformed the world to their image and likeness.
The co-evolution of money and weapons
The symbiosis between money and weapons in old metal cultures and modern companies is evident, if we consider the parallelism between the main evolutionary ages of money (previous graph) and the main ages of evolution of metal-weapons. Both together created the top predator cultures of the Earth:
1. The age of bartering (bars and rings of gold) and Bronze Weapons:
Semites create the 1st Civilization of ‘Chosen of go(l)d’, developing both, Bronze weapons and rings of money. They brought metal to the Canaanite coast, manufactured weapons and sold them, or engaged mercenary armies. Soon Semites were in power in all the nations of the Fertile Crescent, extinguishing the Neolithic civilizations that used wheat—a human good—as biological money. Those Semites specialized geographically. A warrior culture took over mountainous, iron-rich Northern Mesopotamia (Assyrian). A trader culture settled in the node of communication between the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean, Mesopotamia and Egypt, (Canaan). Both started the cycles of war, death and looting that still endure.
2. The age of coins and Indo-European iron warriors:
It is the age of Greek and Roman empires and their culture of coins and ‘infantry’. The arrival of coins, invented by the Greeks, gives them top predator status, as they hold both ‘languages of Metal’, money and weapons, now in the hands of Athenian bankers and Spartan hoplites. Soon Alexander becomes the first man to impose his face in a coin, unifying definitively both elements of power, money and weapons. It appears then the concept of a top predator currency that has legal course, because it is hold by a top predator military system that kills you when you do not want to take the currency. Weapons defend the currency and impose, it regardless of its real value or utility, while the currency pays for weapons. After the Macedonians, the Romans applied the same dual game of power. Then the resurrection of a Wor(l)d of ethics (Christianity) halts the evolution of weapons, metal and money. Yet with the Renaissance, the same dual game of power returns to Italy, which becomes the center of evolution of gunpowder and money.
The series of national power, based on Top Predator weapons and symbiotic currencies, shapes now a shorter 80 years cycle of national power that takes place within the long cycle of gunpowder weapons Since the nation that invents more money pays more mercenaries and produces more war machines, winning all wars:
• XIII-XV C.: Italian Bombards and gold coins spread the Renaissance in Europe.
• XVI C.: Muskets and bullion give power to the Iberians, the first global empire.
• XVIII C.: Artillery and paper money spread Revolutionary France.
All these nations produced the Top Predator weapons of their age and imposed their money and cultures to the rest of mankind. Then, the invention by Holland of paper-money, much easier to reproduce than the gold of the Spaniards, defeats them, opening:
3. The age of paper money and company-mothers.
Paper-Money, issued by the first companies at null cost, professionalizes the reproduction of weapons. Gunboat companies seize power. They hyper-abundance of money, now a mere printed paper, motivates more citizens to work in the production of machines of war. Indeed, without the first radiation of paper money, Dutch companies could have never defeated the Spanish armies. It was paper-money, used to ‘motivate’ Dutch people, pay mercenaries and build their weapons, what defeated the Spaniards.
The press permitted the unlimited reproduction of money in the form of paper. The symbiosis between top predator, informative currencies and top predator, energetic weapons shows the dual, biological nature of economic ecosystems, which become ‘complementary’ organisms, with a physical economy of machines and an informative ‘head’, made of monetary values and orders that ‘creditate’ the future. Now companies and kings could reproduce paper-money and impose it to citizens, just by printing paper, expanding enormously the number of salaries and hours humanity existence under the rule of Companies, working for them.
This brought however many crisis of over-reproduction of money, because even if paper-money was reinforced by an army, many would not accept a worthless paper when the state was too greedy and reproduced it without limit. So the capacity to exchange paper-money for a bit of gold became customary or else paper-money was not trusted, lost value and inflation appeared when paper money was reproduced without limit. The same need for some ‘real value’ happened in the first stock-markets in which paper money represented some real asset, the weapons, gold, territories and slaves of the first company-mothers, reproducers of artillery and gunboats. All those ‘trade’ companies manufactured a product: a gunboat, a weapon. And so people valued those companies for the weapons they owned and the political, territorial power and wealth achieved with them. Till the XX century, soldiers were basically mercenaries. So nations who made a lot of money won wars.
Then, after the fall of Amsterdam to French Artillery, those Companies moved to London and gave England the capital and gunboats that created the British Empire and the Pound . . . So during the XVIII and XIX centuries, the pound would become the top predator currency of the world, reproduced without limit, able to buy goods, people and entire countries:
• XVII-XIX C.: Guilders and gunboats from Holland and England impose the Anglo-Saxon Culture in the ‘7 seas’.
• XIX-XX C.: Steam and oil machines and paper-money from British companies and German banks dominate Europe.
4. The age of e-money and Computer-based Weapons:
• XX C.: America uses computers to research A-bombs and invent e-money. Both expand the American Empire worldwide.
The hyper-abundance of money in the age of company-mothers, when money becomes stock-paper, easy to reproduce with a printing machine, extended the values of greed, violence and mechanist science, cre(dit)ating the modern world. The age of Stock money lasted from 1602 to 1972, when electronic money appeared, making even easier for company-mothers to reproduce their language of power.
Now money becomes electronic money in the minds of computers. It gives America control of the world . . . Yet electronic money travels at the speed of light and knows no borders, so it also means the end of national power, as the financial world becomes a single global organism. So the mirage of national power today fades away, as money achieves its Final Evolutionary scale, becoming the collective brain of the global organism of the economy, at the same time than electronic thoughts in computers are about to cross the Threshold of Artificial Intelligence in:
- Globalization. The Age of the singularity. In the XXI C. the economic ecosystem becomes global: Nuclear weapons evolve, reaching planetary size, with the development at CERN of a factory of black holes that can destroy the planet. While money also escapes national control, as it becomes the re=productive software of global companies.
Today that economic ecosystem is a World wide organism ruled by a digital brain of e-money, World-stock, as no other alternative society is left, except the die-hard Neolithic, warrior societies of Islam— which we use as a perfect excuse to keep multiplying our weapons.
Further on, the metal-values of money and the Go(l)d culture that invented it has created a system of myths in favor of its use to control cultures, that have evolved from go(l)dreligions into Classic economics – the ideology of capitalism and the language of money as the only ‘values’ humans must cherish.
A real science of economics however must be based in the description of money as a language of information controlled by verbal laws, to guide the physical body of the economy for the benefit of ALL mankind. And in the human values natural to our species, that enhance our survival – and both are contradictory -since indeed go(l)d is god.
In that regard, money is a language of information, made of metal, which according to the laws of complexity is building a new ecosystem made also of metal-species, weapons and machines, which we call the Metalearth…
The economic ecosystem is ruled by flows of informative, electronic money that select company-mothers, according to the quality and evolution of their machines, promoting, as always, those companies that create the best weapons and informative ‘metal-minds’. Thus, nothing has changed, except the sophistication of the system of beliefs and myths to sustain the dictatorship of money.And none of those myths is bigger than the idea that we live in a ‘democracy’, which is the government of the law and the people… This is false, because most of the time of our lives we live in a work environment, where we must obey the companies that pay us. So we are most of our lives, and we act most of our time, under ‘monetary orders’ of Companies, which create most of the actions that shape the future of the Earth. We cannot discount those 8 hours a day, as if it ‘they were not happening’.
The fight between democratic, fiat, government issued money and private ‘go(l)d.
There have been always two elements to money:
– Money is a language of information that gives values to the different entities of a society in the same manner words do according to the ethic values of a culture. As such money as a language or ‘nomisma’ (Aristotle, Ethics) follows the rules of languages of information, a subject little understood in modern science, which I have developed in the past decades in the realm of systems sciences and will help us to go forward in the understanding of why a society ruled by money has so different values to one ruled by verbal thought and how can we incorporate ‘ethic values’ to money.
– But money is also the substance of which money is made, which has been for most of history soft, informative metals. And this fact is the key to understand the ethic problems of money, the reasons why for example money gives maximal values to weapons which kill mankind and minimal value to life, exactly the opposite values of words; or why societies which have been ruled by money instead of ethics, notably the Old Temple cultures of Levante, then transferred to the Anglo-Saxon world through biblical capitalism, has suffered and imposed ‘death’ values promoted by the ‘most expensive’ products.
– We shall conclude that money as a language of information of digital, mathematical nature is not per se a problem. The problem has been the use of commodities instead of law to create money.
And in many parts of this blog we study the fight that has endured now 3000 years between:
– The European, rational, democratic thinking about money started in Greece and Rome (Lycurgus, Numa, who established the first fiat money without commodity value), according to which money is just a language, regulated by law, and issued by the government which represents the ‘brain of the superorganism’ of mankind (or any nation in which money is issued) in any support, because it carries the authority of the whole social organism Vs.
– Money as a ‘religious commodity (gold, silver), which gives it value, a primitive way of thinking that has carried hierarchical, anti-democratic, ‘greedy’ societies dedicated to plunder and theft to acquire gold.
This fight which started in Rome, who became independent of the Cananean gold traders that were plundering the Mediterranean and raised an Empire based initially in fiat money (worthless coins made of brittle iron, made useless in vinegar), because what mattered was the community capacity to respect the Law, the verbal language of man, and use money for the common good, is now still raging, as the battle between both views of money was finally gained by those who made the commodity, ‘gold’, the nature of money and accumulated finally controlling societies.
Let us be clear enough – the battle between Law on rule over fiat money, issued by governments for the common good to foster the production of the goods the nation and humanity needs vs. the control of Gold (wealth money) by a minority through the use of weapons, slavery and unjust laws is the most important untold battle for the future of history – (as the wrong vision has won and hence must hide its injustice). Since energy in the universe is always secondary to information, and so in the same manner your body of energy is far less important than your head of information it sustains to regulate your life, to regulate history the true battle is that between different ‘ethic/digital versions’ of our two languages of social power, money and the law, and the decision on which language should dominate with his values (obviously words, our ethic, biological language) and who should issue those languages (obviously the entire community through elected governments). Because the world has gone the wrong way, and a small group of people (private bankers) issue money and on top the lesser language controls the most important, with the correct values – the ethic law (since money commands the law through corrupted politicians), we live in the world we live – a constant holocaust of life and mankind, which has ‘zero’ digital value in terms of metal-money.
But this censored fight, which has brought us to the present world in which democracies disappear because the social language of power is controlled by a few banking dynasties, as interesting as it might be is still the ‘human point of view’. As always in this blog based in the pioneer sciences of biohistory, systems and theory of information, we want to go further and explore why gold values weapons more than life, why the values of commodity money, which has dominated history kill life.
A reform of money in favor of the human kind.
Because social sciences have always two sides – that of ‘explanation of facts’ to understand a certain species, and then its manipulation with scientific laws to help mankind to improve life, we shall end this brief analysis of money considering the ideal case that humans had not been ‘defeated’ by greed, the subconscious hypnotic desire for gold and silver and self-destroyed themselves following the ‘values’ of gold and weapons in an unending quest for the commodity of money, till the bio-logical values of metal have created the capitalism world as it is – which needless to say those who handle money today in both forms, fiat money and gold money ignore, as their concern is still the same of the Phoenician hordes who ransacked the mediterranean in search of gold or the spanish conquistadors who massacred Amerindians for silver or the British Opium traders that destroyed China for the same metal.
One of the key themes of the human condition is this eternal fight between irrational, greedy, violent humans, which guided by visual, emotional, subconscious desires – mainly observed in the White, dolicocephalic, visual ‘homo sapiens Neanderthaliensis’ – become wolves of men; and the rational, democratic eusocial groups who tried to evolve with the proper ‘social languages’ and values (fiat money with ethic laws on top) the humankind.
Of course, because the emotional, primitive wolf-man has won the battle of history, he has created a fantasy of ‘freedom’ (confused with chaos, synonymous in science), making his selfishness and callousness with nature and other humans priced by money and corporations, as an achievement, when it is precisely a symbol of devolution and death of the human social organism. Money as a commodity of metal with primitive, anti-life values therefore has always gone side by side with a debasing of ethic information, imposed mainly with religious inquisitions that forbid the goals of life, from sexual reproduction to eusocial love (gold churches that repress the values of life, being the Bible and its biblical supremacists with its racist mandates today still in power in the west, the most clear example of it). Only in this manner the type of dysfunctional, unjust, anti-democratic economic systems of capitalism could have been born. The master works of Sombart and Weber on the origins of capitalism explain clearly those facts.
But there has also been an alternative stream of thought, albeit only applied in the highest moments of human rational history, in which money was useful to society because:
A) It was treated as fiat money, hence it could be issued or destroyed at will as words and laws are,depending on the needs of society
B) It was used by the collective brain of the society – its government, hence it was not a ‘cancerous’ ‘energy/blood’ hold by a single organ (people-caste, tribe, elite, class, priesthood or race depending on societies.)
Those 2 elements – money must be fiat money and must be issued by governments – are thus essential to create a democratic world in which money serves mankind under the ruling of social sciences and biological laws. Today this means that the financial Industry should be nationalized and a global international fiat currency, Yes money, studied in other parts of this blog should be imposed to guarantee the issue of government money (deficits) to pay for the welfare state, in the same manner that we are free to speak words to act in our favor and our heart and brain is constantly sending blood and nervous messages to all the cells of the body to regulate its workings. As today, we have a short of ‘liver’ (the bankers) who is overgrown and absorbs all the blood of society (money) killing rhythmically the rest of the body in the cycles of appropiation, economical crash, hyperinflation, destruction of currencies, wars and holocausts.
The two narratives.
Indeed, you must understand why this blog, so many times crashed till I simply gave up on maintaining it in proper forms, any other blog of similar content or book or school of social sciences that explain scientifically the nature of money as a language, its best forms to regulate society, and the needed reforms, (that is, who applies the scientific method to the study of money) is censored. Why even the history of money is censored: ideologies of power can only be maintained through censorship and inquisitions of the mind.
The fact is that the most important, one must say the ONLY factor in the creation of the future of any system is the ‘particle/head/language of information’ of the system. And so the battle between verbal ethics of social love in control of fiat money for the production of the goods society needs vs. metal-values, greed and murder controlled by ‘animetal’ castes of bankers and warriors, has structured, created, cre(dit)ated the world.
But the wrong side has won the battle of history – reason why the values of metal are extinguishing life – and this CANNOT BE KNOWN by mankind, or else mankind we might try to steer the future and create a democratic world to its image and likeness.
Thus always in history the people who tried to command mankind with the values of money and weapons have censored history to impose their power and hierarchical control from the top with money. And this means of course, the ‘narrative of history’, once they have won that battle, after II world war, has changed radically. The audiovisual system of misinformation that prints both money and human, verbal information, in the hands of the same people is the tool that has allowed this ‘rewriting’ of history to an extent that astounds the very few humans who ‘still know’ what was the true history of economics, war, power and society.
We thus treat in this blog the theme in many posts which reveal the real history of those who today command the world with their monopoly of money – the biblical culture in the west, who invented capitalism, the corporation and rule the banking industry. Needless to say this is today the biggest taboo and most censored theme in media and the country from where they command the world – America. So nobody asks for a reform of capitalism and the return of the issue of money to society.
One of the outcomes though of that battle is the cycle of the Holocaust and the raise to power in the west of the biblical people and how they regressed the European enlightened rennaissance into the dark ages of biblical thought; and then again how they regressed the American enlightened founding fathers culture to the present Biblical supremacism. And then again how are now destroying the European enlightened union into a new Germ(an) Reich that destroys life and the welfare state.
This narrative in its proper form is obviously the most censored theme in modern history – as the victors write history in his favor. In this blog we offer its correct interpretation: how a minority of banker-priests, the Levis (which incidentally are my ancestors, so you can save yourself the usual topic form of censorship accusing me of anti$emitism) controlled and enslaved their lower castes the Hebrews with Biblical Inquisitions and enslave them. Let us remember as Exodus explains that this caste came in power by killing their ‘flock’ in the Golden calf myth, and make the other 11 tribes ‘its slaves’.
Please, think about it, a priesthood that reaches power killing those who believe in them, and then make them slaves and oblige them to bring to the temple ex-votes in gold, sending them all over the world to trade with luxuries, weapons and slaves.
This people printed a book of their deeds, mainly of theft and murder and genocide of the cananean people. And then created a global empire, which the Romans defied creating the first fiat money, to escape their control of the etrurian coast. And finally with the destruction of Carthage imposed the rational power of the law. But the law again succumbed to the myths and inquisitions of the bible and the primitive brutal thinking of the germ(an) warrior and the Semite go(l)d traded. And so we entered into the Dark ages, dominated by a massive slave trade carried by Jewish people protected by Frank, Germ(an) warriors, which lasted till the XIII century. Then again rationality imposed its power and we lived the rennaissance and neo-platonism – the pursuit of life, love and art. And then again biblical primitive thinking by the hand of Calvin and Luther imposed murder and greed as the values of the western society creating capitalism, which expanded those values to the rest of the western world.
This process would be obviously given the values of greed and murder intersected by constant massacres of human beings of all types and groups – the peddlers of the 11 tribes slaves of the Levis hated for his traffic in slaves; the germ(an) tribes who murdered and were murdered and finally broke into tribal nations, creating the absurd nationalism that provoked the death of millions of Europeans for centuries to come, but the never mourned true holocaust NOT of the germ(an)s and Jewish animetal cult(ures) who impose those values and receive them back, but the rest of mankind and Nature, brutally oppressed and destroyed by the scourge of capitalism and nationalism.
And this is the view of this blog – that of the 99% of life and mankind who always cheered the values of life and love and have been and will be extinguished by the values of greed and murder of the animetal castes that rule us. Our narrative thus differ from the official narrative of the systems of misinformation that those people command and have truly rewritten the true history of this planet to serve his needs and make money sacred, as always was in his Temples and make weapons sacred as always were in their Thor altars – Germ(an)s established altars with upside down swords as gods where they impaled the children of their enemy and Cananeans established altars to Baal, where they sacrificed their own children in the ceremony of the Hecatomb, which latter Isaac substituted by a sheep, which in the Jewish tradition meant the goyyim, the gentile, mankind, thus meaning the parable that not only the 11 tribes would be sacrificed to go(l)d but also mankind, which certainly the Germ(an)s have been killing ever since they came into history calling themselves goths, gods, because they could kill with their mass-produced iron swords anyone who opposed them.
So in this blog you will find 3 ways to explain the narrative:
– The previous one from the ethic point of view of mankind at large that condemns those primitive cult(ure)s
– The systemic, biological one, based in the laws of the Universe that explain why they won the battle of history and which will be its outcome.
– And the negation of the ‘narrative’ of the victors, who have created a ‘happy, childish fantasy’ of damned lies and statistics, inquisitions of thought, falsification of history and occultation of data to keep all mankind and themselves blinded to the glare of gold and running at full speed towards our extinction.
Money is a language of digital information.
Money is just a language of digital information that gives orders to consumers, products-prices and politicos (lobbies). In the widest possible view of general systems sciences, the Universe can be described as a series of ‘lanwaves’: languages of informations exist in heads, particles and informative social castes to guide ‘blind’ fields, bodies and masses of human working energy. And so the enormous privilege of ‘issuing’ the 2 physiological languages that direct any system – the nervous/informative language and the reproductive-energetic one; in our societies the legal, verbal language and the digital, monetary one – must be met in all systems by certain responsibilities and checks – from the side of the body.
And this essential fact – that the human informative castes of politicians and bankers MUST be controlled and regulated by the body of citizens is the essential ‘dogma’ of efficient, working democracies. Now in all those efficient systems, all cells receive enough energy and information to survive, because they can send ‘pain messages’ to the brain ‘neuronal castes’. And so ALL of them receive enough ‘legal/nervous information’ and blood/energy’. So in real democracies NOT only all citizens should ‘vote’ laws but all of them should have a ‘universal salary’, to give ‘economic orders’ and absorb enough ‘blood products’ to survive. This is called a ‘demand based, democratic economy’. And it would be efficient, provide energy to all cells and be democratic. But we do NOT live in a democracy, but an ill-designed tribal, capitalist system which HAS created a ‘disney democracy’ of placebo rights and values to hide with the pretension of science the usurpation of the ‘rights of citizens’ to a demand economy, and needless to say we do NOT have a ‘pain system’ of vote which ‘delivers pain or rewards’ to the politicians AFTER their tenure, to ‘judge’ their actions and oblige them to ‘care’ for those cells.
If we lived in a democracy, as we pass laws to give orders to people we would create ‘greenback’-like money issued by states to give orders of work for infrastructures, health-care and to handle it directly to people with a Universal salary, so people would demand and hence oblige corporations to reproduce the goods we need.
Indeed, democracies are about people and if people and their governments had the rights to print money they would spend it on themselves, their survival and needs, creating a paradise on Earth, a world made to the image and likeness of human beings.
But when corporations, whose mandate is to reproduce and take care of their offspring of machines NOT of humans, print money, they use it to evolve and reproduce those machines not to evolve, educate and help the survival of humans. And so we live in a world in which ONLY machines, corporations and their ‘stockrats’, their owners with privileges never seen since the Middle Ages ‘aristocracy’ with exclusive rights to issue and use weapons and no judgments (as corporations and its owners have today with exclusive rights to issue e-money in markets and ‘anonymous societies laws):
Bankers print money with its speculative schemes and companies print money in stocks and then with that money – for example the 100 billions given to facebook – they can do whatever they want, creating ‘efficiently’ their products. Now consider that a hospital could print so easily ‘monetary orders’ to pay their workers. People would have free health-care and companies would produce much more doctors, surgery equipment, prices of welfare goods would diminish and the present global scarcity of food (1 billion people are hungry), medicines, human jobs, ‘rational education’, housing, etc. would end.
There would be overproduction of ‘human, life goods’. But instead because financial orders are issued by bankers and industrial corporations there is overproduction of electronic money, drones and worker-robots.
Thus, it is clear that the second essential language of power of society that democracies don’t have is the issue and control NOT only of the nervous/legal language of society, the law, but also of its blood/financial language, money, which was taken from us soon after the French and American r=evolutions by bankers.
In those r=evolutions, aimed to create more efficient, just, working social systems, we got rid of aristocrats with exclusive rights to use and make weapons but NOT of the privileges of ‘bankers’ with exclusive rights to print our money. So now we have to pay taxes to get welfare goods, while bankers print money for free for themselves and for corporations which then give orders of production of machines and weapons. Let us then see how they do it, creating the boom and bust cycles and crashes of the economy and war cycles that characterize the western world during the Industrial R=evolution.
III. THE SOLUTIONS OF THE CRISIS FROM CLASSIC ECONOMICS: HUMANS ARE EXPENDABLE
The true causes of the financial and labor crisis and the solutions of intelligent design.
Let us be clear from the beginning. Under Intelligent Design, the point of view of FInancial and Industrial Corporations – to increase profits by overproducing fiat money and machines, regardless of their collateral effects on mankind – is the only fact that matters.
Under a biological perspective, humans exist in a life planet that reproduces two kind of memes, life memes of the welfare state we need, as humans, to survive and industrial memes of the tree of science that both enhance but also compete with human-life based memes. So there is a trade off between overproducing as corporations want, fiat money and industrial goods, vs. overproducing welfare goods and ethic laws that regulate mankind.
And that trade-off is the matter of all economic crisis, paradoxically caused by the overproduction of weapons (war crisis) working machines (labor crisis) and fiat money (financial crisis) by corporations.
Since weapons consume humans in war fields, working machines substitute workers and fiat money ruins people when they acquire it exchanged for real wealth and becomes worthless.
You live today the crisis of overproduction of chips, minds of metal that reproduce fiat money (e-moneyd erivatives) exchanged for real human wealth; work as soliders in drones that kill humans and as white collar pcs and blue collar robots of higher re=productivity that substitute human workers.
So what is done about this crisis? Nothing because the crisis gives higher profits to the economists and corporations that FOSTER THOSE CRISIS UNDER THE MYTHS OF INTELLIGENT DESIGN – WHAT IS good for the corporation and the 1% is good for all of us because it is the will of God to favor the chosen, plainly speaking this is the ideology behind all the actions of economists today. Of course, most of them consider that what is ‘good for the corporation’ is good for mankind because money, weapons and machines are always positive (and only a few of the original believers in Intelligent Design, mainly in America ad the religious view, embedded today in economical equations and ‘institutions’ of capuitalism).
2 Examples of collateral effects of Intelligent Design in Economics: The case of inflation and the ‘obsessive zeal’ of the ECB bank
Let us consider in great detail a key example of the enormous collateral effects that the myths of ‘Intelligent Design’ are causing to mankind, due to the dogmas of earlier Biblical Economists, whose arguments always cater to the selfish agenda of the 1% of owners of corporations: the issue of inflation, which is the ‘totem’ of Intelligent Design regarding their macro-economic policies. Inflation is the great satan of those theorists because plainly speaking, it reduces the profits of money lenders.
But inflation in a true theory of economics must exist, as money is just a language of information that, as words or any language of information does, MUST be invented at null cost (minimal energy) TO KICK OUT THE ACTIONS of a human being (thoughts) or a social organism (laws, digital money):
TO ACT WE MUST FIRST THINK WITH THE LANGUAGE OF INFORMATION THAT REGULATES THE SYSTEM in a greater measure than our actions. So inflation is necessary to create economic wealth, as money must be invented to kick out the economic process.
But all this is ‘science’, not Intelligent Design of an economic system to cater for the go(l)d profits of the chosen owners, the leisure class.
So to the rescue of Intelligent Design, once in the 60s Keynesian scientists had proved ad nauseam that we needed around a 5% of annual inflation, of monetary orders to create the welfare state, came between the ‘savant idiots’ of classic economics, to the service of the 1%, to ‘prove’ just with complicated arguments that inflation was ‘evil’.
Mr. Friedman argued the theme of inflation against the true scientist, the silenced Mr. Samuelson, who proved mathematically with the so-called Phillips curve that there was a natural trade-off between unemployment and inflation, based in factual data: If inflation was reduced by shrinking the monetary mass – the economy collapsed without INFORMATIVE ORDERS, as you would not act WITHOUT THOUGHT. ‘I think therefore i exist’ means in economics ‘I print money’ therefore i work and produce. But banksters NEED TO REDUCE THE MONETARY MASS once everybody owes them money TO INCREASE THE VALUE OF DEBT AND GET FAR MORE REAL WEALTH in return.
This is the trick: bankers who try to conquer the world with money to prove that Intelligent Design is truth – that is, that they are the chosen and the rest of mankind are non-chosen by the hand of go(l)d, will pursuit the accumulation of money by:
A) monopolizing the right to produce it against welfare governments and democracies that must control the 2 languages of social power, money and the law, to be considered such.
B) lend money without limit in the boom cycle.
C) limit credit with the excuse of inflation happening at B) so they can claim debt back and since there is no money to pay, get real wealth assets as payment, becoming immensely rich.
This cycle which we shall study in detail for the western world requires that first inflation happens at B) and then C) inflation is the devil so nations must labor to pay back.
So the task of Mr. Friedman was to prove inflation the devil. And he did with arguments so complicated and absurd – based in future expectations that each rational human consumer will take into account about future indicators of economics in order to decide if he would buy today – that truly are not worth to discuss in detail.
What matters ALWAYS IN INTELLIGENT DESIGN is the ‘hidden’ purpose of those arguments – to prove the hierarchical class structure of a society based in racial bias towards the wealth by ‘go(l)d’s decree’ right.
Of course Mr. Friedman, no longer bound to the scientific method, denied the science of inflation – the Phillip’s curve that shows without inflation there is no economic growth – as ‘data’ is never relevant in the world-view of Intelligent Design applied to Economics (let us use the proper name for ‘neo-classic’ economics, since the word ‘classic’ seems to convey a ‘superior’ elegant Design, which is not the case).
Yet because Friedman is taken seriously this argument is fundamental to explain the crisis of unemployment taken place in Europe, where the ECB, ruled by neo-classic Intelligent Design, stubbornly considers its only mandate to lower inflation.
Hence according to experimental data and the Phillips curve, it implements policies destined to increase unemployment and indeed once more the experimental method has proved Mr. Samuelson right since unemployment has soared ever since the ECB came to dominate the macro-economical policies of Europe. Has this changed the policies of Mr. Trichet, Mr. Draghi and Miss Merkel, the biblical believers that direct the ECB and the German Republic? Of course not. Because they no longer follow the scientific method, according to Friedman – that is irrelevant for Intelligent Design. And they do not cater to the 99% according to religion – human losers are expendable by the will of Go(l)d, which will provide in the ‘future’ as long as you are willing to die in the present.
But why inflation matters to the ‘restricted point of view’ of Intelligent Design in economics and the elite of owners of financial corporations for whom these modern believers cater to?
We need to consider the ‘historic’, XIX century origin of this myth from two perspectives, that of the people who profit when inflation is lower – the investors in financial bonds – and that of the ‘damned lies’ of its main theoretical defender, Mr. Hayek.
Economics must be a science submissive to history hence to politics.
Let us be clear from the beginning. When Mr. Marshall, the father of modern economics with its mathematical/corporation bias convinced at the beginning of the XX century to teach ‘economics as a different discipline’, Economics had been rightly taught for 150 years within the curriculum of History and Moral Thought – as secondary sciences, submissive to History and Ethics, as they should be – because the CENTRAL POINT OF VIEW OF MANKIND MUST BE MANKIND AND ECONOMICS SHOULD BE DEDICATED TO IMPROVE THE FUTURE OF HUMAN BEINGS NOT THE FUTURE OF MACHINES ONLY.
Thus I sign ‘futureofhistory’ and treat economics from a historical perspective and use moral and verbal causal arguments. It would been very easy for me to write here treatises of mathematical economics, taking into account that my ‘forte’ and most important work in the realm of hard science is the mathematical and logical formalism of General Systems Sciences (aka complexity), as I explain in my avatar. You make a career with that, you get Nobel Prizes and big positions in the financial industry if all what you care is to evolve and overproduce machines and money and consider that the only goal of economics.
Of course, with a lot of care. Mr. Marshall explains in his books that his interest in economics aroused when he walked on the slums of London and Liverpool. Oh, lol, those caring financial and industrial economists (-; This guy, father of micro-economics (the study of how to maximize the production of corporations), who opposed to any legislation in favor of a minimal salary in Britain separated economics from history and made it just a partial discipline to the service of financial and industrial corporations, because ‘he cared so much’ for the people of the slums.
From then on that was the ‘new normal’: convert humans into mathematical objects, subject to price, with no rights whenever they collide with the overproduction mantra of ‘progress through the machine’… And so you got the ‘experts’ of the XX century, with a few exceptions like Kondratieff, Keynes and Galbraith all caring so much for… the rights of corporations and the 1%.
It is in that milieu, as economics became more ‘dehumanized’ when mathematics – which first was intended to be a helping hand to aid production – acquires an ‘ideological bias’ to cover corruption through complexity and a pretension of higher ‘science’. In the same manner corrupted law during the ‘ancient regime’ could not be ‘codified’; so the aristocrat’s lawyer always found his way in the maze of legality, today financial economics always can disguise its antidemocratic and antisocial use of credit with arcane jargons. So we cut through that Gordian knot of mathematical rhetoric, starting as Napoleon did with the law, with a new, far more scientific and objective ‘code’ – the organic, systemic, evolutionary analysis of what really matters – not the ‘realm of the spirit’ but the physical economy of machines that truly influences our life and interacts with humans and labor.
Today Economics has ended in the theoretical realm, being absorbed by ‘corporations’ and financiers, which have become our ‘self-styled experts’ for selfish gain and further on have become dictators of our policies – as machines and money overproduce increasingly substituting humans and the law as the ‘makers’ of reality. So we are moving from a historic and political world into an economic ecosystem where humans are secondary to machines, governments to corporations and the law to the power of money, whose issue those corporations have usurped from democracies and the people, WHO should be the factors that control the two language of information that rule our world – money and the law – AS ALL EFFICIENT SOCIAL ORGANISMS, which have all two languages of energy and information (blood/money system and nervous/legal one) do.
Along the pages of this blog we study from time to time the two sides of Economic thought – those who made economics submissive to history and the welfare of society, epitomized by the today totally ignored Swedish, social school of economics and those who were just pamphletists of financial and industrial power, epitomized by the Austrian school.
Consider for example the work of Myrdal, the most important representative of the Swedish school who convinced the Swedish government in the 30s to create a social paradise, based in a welfare state and the use of money not to create wars but goods people demanded. And yet modern economists ignore him. Instead they prefer a 3rd rate, Jewish bigot, founder of the Chicago school, guru of Miss Thatcher and Reagan, Hayek, to the service of private bankers. His ‘masterpieces’ ‘road to serfdom’ and ‘the denationalization of money’ are pamphlets full of ‘damned lies and statistics’. Indeed, in the latter he claims that he is ‘obsessed’ by the negative consequences that hyperinflation caused in Germany during the 20s and to remedy it, governments must not issue money, but we must regress to the earlier XIX century American banking system of private bankers issuing their own currencies – not a single private bank but as many as you want – to avoid the abuse of printing money by governments, as in the case of Germany. He considers that ‘private bankers’ would be responsible and control the printing of their own money to make it worth it, instead of doing what they have always historically done – to issue money for themselves with no limit creating the boom and bust crises of modern history.
Now, here the lie is enormous; since the Reichbank that caused hyperinflation during the Weimar republic was a private bank NOT a public one. So they printed money without limit till they broke Germany, causing the rise of fascism. And this Mr. Hayek must now. So he lies because his only goal is to ‘make himself amicable’ to the financial power, as Adam Smith did when affirming money was gold and put the Private Bank of England as the perfect model. Then the system of audiovisual information and the industry of scholar economics pump up as geniuses those economists that cater to the financial elite and ignore the others.
Indeed, Mr. Myrdal, father of modern Sweden was NOT given a Nobel prize by a Swedish bank, which has usurped the name of Nobel to give this prize that was not in its testament and its heirs reject – in a nation that gives Nobel prizes to any Scandinavian that says something coherent in any discipline – till the 70s, and when it did so, the bank gave him the Nobel shared with Mr. Hayek. Here the trick was obvious: the bank was using the prestige of Myrdal to pump up the pamphletist and on top saying Myrdal is the ‘past’, this cuckoo liar is the future.
Another examples used by pamphletists of private bankers are the currencies of the French and American revolutions (continentals) that lost value during the wars with England. Of course, they did, because England created a mass-industry of fake currency, doing financial terrorism and exporting ‘literally’ tons of continentals and French money to break the revolution.
Why then the obsession for public created inflation when it is always created by the massive invention of private money? Damned lies and statistics, cover up.
Further on a minimal quantity of inflation is NOT bad. The obsession against inflation of the right comes because bond holders, the supreme power of financial control of states loose money with inflation as their bonds have nominal prices. So since the XIX century age of legendary control of states by the Rothschild syndicate with manipulation of bonds, bankers do not want inflation. In true form, a language of information is inflationary, so we talk and think more than we act, as inflation in language kicks off the process of ‘action-creation’. Without inflation there is no economical action. Without thoughts there is no human actions. A bit of Inflation kicks consume as people spend now before prices go up but without the rush of hyperinflation, at a moderate path that increases consumption, demand and the production of the goods most people need – those of the welfare state that don’t kill us.
But this people ignore. They are not told at all why the ECB bank cares nothing for Europeans and its only obsession is to ‘prevent inflation’. What they don’t say but do is this: ‘dear European citizens, this is a private bank to the service of private bankers, to whom we lend money almost for free, while you don’t have any right to do it, and we shall have only a mandate, to avoid inflation so the big bond holders of Wall Street and Newport beach that lend you money because you no longer have that democratic right, make an even bigger cut. Never mind you are unemployed, you die without health-care, you are usurped of your sovereign rights, this is not our concern. We follow the glorious tradition of our forebears, which are not the fathers of the European Union but the millenarian usury traders that have controlled your money per in secula seculorum. Amen.
And so to the rescue comes the arcane science of complexity that hides aberrations with jargons and expert’s talk of what is a global theft going on for 30 years since private e-money was invented.
Economists IN FACT CENSOR DATA about money and machines and its overproduction crisis. SO THEY TALK THIN AIR, idiocies, which have nothing to do with the fundamental facts of the industrial economy, since overproduction crisis are taboo. So it is the relationship between economic growth and top predator machines aka weapons that consume us. So it is the negative effects of machines of mankind. NOTHING OF THIS is considered in our ‘virtual world’ of fantasies, as it was already censored in the XIX century. This was the stuff of which Hegel and Marx and the socialist school and the anarchists talked about.
AND OF COURSE FINANCIAL CRISIS CANNOT BE EXPLAINED. Since they are just caused by the anti-democratic usurpation of the issue of money by bankers.
And the financial crisis are massive thefts of wealth, ‘exchanged’ by fiat money of null value issued by financiers.
Indeed, as we shall see all what those crisis are about printing for free in monopoly money with new machines, lending it to people and states without the right to print it, make them owe the financiers fortunes and then exploit them, as workers or by taking their real wealth to pay a debt, WHICH SHOULD NOT EXIST IN FIRST PLACE.. So if you cannot TALK ABOUT THE REAL FACTS OF MONEY AND MACHINES, WHAT YOU TALK ABOUT IN CAPITALIST ECONOMICS?
THIN AIR. as they do in Davos. Complicated arguments, rossy futures, myths, ‘damned lies and statistics’.
You live in a world completely censored at the ‘high level’ of mass-media, political and economical, and national correctness/institutions – a disguise built around a ‘fantasy’ of happiness based in a ‘false pretension of science and truth’ and ‘human caring’ ‘natural to democracies and capitalism that deactivates the harshness of biological, Darwinian world we live in.
The capitalist system of invention of money.
In a capitalist society, WHERE THE FREE CITIZENS OF MARKETS ARE COMPANY-MOTHERS OF MACHINES, the blood/money system and the nervous/legal law are both ISSUED for CORPORATIONS which use their monopoly on credit to ‘buy’ politicos and its laws. And then use both to evolve, overproduce and adapt the world to the image and likeness of its offspring of machines.
So no computer goes hungry today without electricity but it is OK that 1 billion humans go hungry – no robot goes out without work, but it is ok 1 billion humans are underemployed. And of course, because corporations can ‘value themselves’ in markets, they constantly increase their ‘fiat money’ value, to the point that the flaship of the present wave of chip overproduction – apple – is worth more than the entire Pakistan. What this means is that capitalism is NOT about humans but about ‘memes of metal’, capital, machines and weapons. And so a capitalist system in which corporations own the rights to print money and buy political laws to favor their machines with those moneys, is one which will end eliminating humans and enthroning the robot as the new top predator species of this planet.
Specifically bankers and financial corporations issue money with the new informative machines of each cycle, first for themselves, as bankers and speculators have always done. And then for the safest bet – industrial machines and weapons, the most expensive goods that give the highest returns, NOT for the people and their welfare needs, as TRUE DEMOCRACIES WOULD DO SYSTEMATICALLY. Since human needs do NOT give usury returns: if you feed your family with a loan or save a life in a hospital this is not giving the corporation serious returns as when a company makes and sells a weapon with the money private bankers printed for them.
And so ALL THOSE CRISES ARE NOT SOLVED AS THEY would IN A REAL DEMOCRACY – WITH a massive ‘NEW DEAL’ AND A SYSTEMIC PRINTING OF MONEY given directly to people, which in turn will give ‘ORDERS’ OF PRODUCTION for the things they need – food, housing, health-care, etc. Such ‘sound’, democratic, ‘demand economy’ would then DELIVER TO THE productive agents order to reproduce the goods of the welfare state. But since corporations NOT citizens receive the money, they do not demand and produce goods of the welfare state but produce industrial machines and weapons and demand wars of higher returns and control politicos to declare them.
So the crisis is ultimately both an economical crisis due to the overproduction of chips, similar to the crisis of overproduction of cars and tickers and radios (electro-mechanical overproduction) of the 30s, and the crisis of overproduction of train-stocks and yellow, colonial press of the XIX century, but also and mainly a political crisis due to the fact that human governments don’t print money for their people – only corporations do in an overwhelming amount or as in the case of America, governments print money to give it for free to corporations with financial bail outs or to make wars that deplete their arsenals.
The true crime of the system: war for profits.
Once and again, when bankers steal the privilege of inventing money from the people, they switch its purpose from issuing money to pay the welfare goods people demand and give them salaries to spend and promote the private production of those goods, into making the highest profits issuing money for themselves or to make war which provokes a massive demand of weapons and corporative profits.
This shift from issuing money for welfare to issue money for warfare, happened first in England after the Bank of England was invented by private bankers with a charter given by corrupted and clueless politicians, to ‘lend money’ to Britain at 6% of interest – exactly what the ECB has done now in Europe.
Then corrupted politicos to the payroll of the bank soon embarked in permanent wars to increase its debt, with enormous sufferings for the commoner of England and the planet Earth. In America soon after the Independence, it happened the same, when Mr. Winthrop, a calvinist bishop, Mr. Morris and associates, jewish merchants, Mr. Gerard, the biggest slave trader and Mr. Hamilton took the right to issue money, away from the founding ‘peasant fathers’, who did not understand yet there is no democracy without the issue of bills of law and bills of money by the elected government.
Soon the Hamilton gang started to promote wars – wanting to declare war to France! the country that had invested even more than America for the freedom of the American people, for Louisiana, and had not Jefferson merely offered money and bought it from the French, it could have achieved its purpose – to create like a Bank of England did, a nation in perpetual war for profits, ruled by an elite of ‘bankers’, which in England have their own ‘kingdom within the kingdom’ – the City, where the king cannot enter without the permit of its major and MP, traditionally of the house of Rothschild…
America and their people though had a higher sense of freedom and rights and fought many battles with the bankers, starting with the duel in which Burr killed Hamilton, followed by the understanding of Jefferson that they had been ‘cheated’ and his attempts to regain the right to issue money… But then bankers ‘exploded’ the game by lobbying states which started to charter private bankers that issued paper-money, systematically ruining the common americans by defaulting on their paper…
And as ‘greed’ and ‘theft’ became ‘privatized’ so any wealthy slave trader or usurer could start a bank, the elite caste of American capitalism took roots and has reigned ever since. And when american heroes of national freedoms, presidents like Mr. Jackson or Mr. Lincoln or Mr. Kennedy tried to reverse the course and regain those freedoms for the people, with the abolition of the 2nd private ‘bank of the United states’ or the emission of debt-free greenback money or the creation of a welfare demand based economy… they fall to the bullet.
Thus every attempt of western people to become free truly democracies has been reigned in by bankers and corrupted politicos, by murder, corrupted law and war. So when Lincoln said ‘you cannot cheat all the people all the time’ and invented the greenback, money issued by government, bankers fretted. Lincoln was assasinated and the robber barons by the hand of Staunton took over. And America entered the age of extermination of indians for the profits of railroads and many other astounding financial and industrial crimes proper of the robbers baron’s post-civil war era.
The boom and bust cycle of credit, which initiate the global crashes of the economy.
One was paramount and worth to mention as it explains also the present crisis: bankers obtained the end of greenbacks so they could issue debt. And started the second fundamental cycle of greed and murder, parallel to the promotion of war – the boom and bust cycle of debt creation:
– First bankers issue as much money as possible, with no limit, fiat money that costs them nothing and create debt and inflation. So at a point the entire society owes huge amounts of ‘soft debt’ to the bankers. And this is good for the bankers who receive ‘interest’ for their debt.
Then they stop lending, and contract the monetary mass, so money becomes scarce and there is deflation. Companies fire workers as they cannot pay them. Production halts. The economy shrinks but THIS IS ALSO GOOD for the bankers as now Money is ‘more expensive’, ‘it buys more things’, and so the huge debt society has with them becomes far more worthy – with the payments bankers can buy many more things. And since the debt has NOT contracted, as it was already established in the age of monetary expansion, the debt is so huge that they end up controlling most of the wealth of society. In this phase, the entire system is geared to extort money from people to pay debt, with higher taxes and hand outs from governments.
Sounds familiar? It should, because it is is exactly what happened in the present cycle:
Bankers invented fiat money without limit once they discovered the ‘complex e-money derivatives’ that allowed them to print ‘digital data’ as money in computer screens… and so every state and individual owes them money.
Now they are contracting the monetary mass, and their qisling politicos are extorting with higher taxes, bail outs and destruction of welfare states people with the money to pay a debt that IN A REAL DEMOCRACY WOULD NEVER EXIST, AS MONEY WOULD BE ISSUE FREE OF DEBT, AS ORDERS OF WORK BY SOVEREIGN STATES.
THE SAME PROCESS happened during the overproduction cycle of rail stocks. Then it was achieved with the demonetization of silver, which was money as bank notes and gold were. So suddenly half of the metal-money disappeared, increasing enormously the value of debts, by increasing the value of money and deflating prices, making debts far more expensive. Of course, the entire planet entered recession, except industrial companies that switched to weapon’s production and unlike the people who were asked to pay debts, receive credit.
This again happened in the beginning of the century. It was in fact the ‘trick’ used by the House of Morgan in the panic of 1907, as an excuse to set the Federal Reserve bank as a private bank of ‘issue’, who would extort usury debt to the United states for decades to come.
Then once, the right to issue money was in the hands of New York Speculators, lending to small companies and agricultural states plummeted. Almost all the credit was issue to New England states involved in industrial and financial speculation. And so it started the 20s with the age of ‘ticker-money’ expansion…
…followed by the Federal Reserve’s and Bank of England’s concerted contraction of money, previously issued to pay speculation in stock-markets in 1928-29… which crashed the global market.
And then by the final bid for global war in every nation, with expansion of credit for war that reached the all-time-peak of American debt, where the system originally invented by the Bank of England had been copycatted – along almost every other ‘industrialized nation’, where each national elite feasted on those profits.
This is exactly what has happened ‘again’ in this crisis.
First bankers in the US expanded credit in e-money without limit, in the happy 90s so everybody bought internet stocks, and finally they busted the credit system in the 2000s; after unloading those stocks into the middle class with the ‘self-made man’ myth of ‘trade yourself in internet’. In the 20s they call it ‘buying on margin’. As the top price moment of unloading fiat worthless paper-stocks overpriced into the middle class approached, ‘buying on margin’ was fueled by massive credit of the Federal Reserve. Say you wanted to buy a ‘yahoo’ or a ‘RCA’ (radio-stock) at 500, their peak prices, in the 2000s or 20s. You would just put a 10% of the 500, and the bankster will tell you that you will double capital when the price hit 550. What he didn’t tell you is that when the price goes down to 450, your 50 $ are gone and then the banker will sell the stock and ruin you. So they passed the ‘virus’ of greed to main street and ruined them in both cases, unloading at maximal prices the shares, whose value they had artificially jacked up in the previous decade.
Then within years another short 7 year cycle of the ‘product’ took place. Now as people did not want to know anything about stocks, they had to invent a new form of worthless e-money in their screens. So they expanded again e-money with the mortgage cdos, which they unloaded at maximal prices into the accounts of the governments and investors of the entire planet. And then they contracted credit and had the ‘chuptzah’ of asking again to be paid the ‘false fiat money’ of those cdos – mere double accountancy as they were false mortgages repacked and resold ‘again’ – extorting one trillion dollars in bail outs, which now bring higher taxes but rip for them higher benefits.
And parallel to that boom and bust cycle, they have expanded military expending to 1/2 of the nation’s budget, which is a quantity HIGHER than the amount spent by Germany prior to the Spanish Civil war (the ‘splendid little war’ that started World war II)…
The present age of war, however, is closer to the colonial age of wars of the XIX century, as its focus is the defense of a modern, colonial apartheid country from where the majority of western bankers think to come… (In true form most came from the last country crashed by those cycles ). For that reason the present phase of global war against the 3rd world must be analyzed NOT in comparison with the raise of organized fascism in Europe but with the blatant ‘racist’ analysis of the African ‘negro’ and ‘yellow money’ British, Belgian and French imperialist massacred with the excuse they were ‘primitive’ humans with no technological development, whose death were just ‘peccadilloes’.
But, and this is a theme latter treated extensively, the control of mass-media information by the same people who print money, as it is printed with the same machines, allows them not only to print money but to ‘imprint’ the mind of the mass with ‘fairy tales’ that terrify them and further advance the ‘profits’ of the financial-military-industrial complex that strips us of our rights and wealth. This heavy-handed use of the audiovisual rhetoric of fear was a key element to extort citizens’ taxes during the crisis. So Mr. Paulson told American politicians that if they didn’t give wall street one trillion $ the ‘system would bust’. Uauh, really!? That would be great news, the most corrupted, dysfunctional, self-suicidal, exploitative system ever deviced will bust – let’s go all for it. Now the theme is called ‘the fiscal cliff’… arg! 0-: We are all gonna fall in a cliff if we don’t give away our last pennies, pay more taxes, cut the meager services the system offer us…
And the amazing thing is that people believe them.
Meanwhile in Europe where the ‘boom and bust cycle’ and ‘war for profits’ cycle ended in that war, which destroyed the continent, people regained those rights well-deserved after the blood spelt in two world wars and unending revolutions.
So in the post-war era the closest system to a real democracy and a human paradise on Earth took place in Europe, as governments printed money for the people and their demanded goods, creating a welfare state that satisfied their needs.
Yet the astounding fact is that in the 90s in the Maastrich treaty, whose euro section was written by ‘experts’ of the financial industry, politicos representing sovereign nations gave the right and freedom to print money to the very private lobbies of the ECB and Brussels, becoming willing colonies of those private bankers. So they entered again the vicious circle of bankers printing money only for corporations while demaning the destruction of the welfare state.
And so the contagion of the American crisis was immediate as suddenly both nations were once more puppets of the corporative and financial industries and its war and boom-bust cycles. If any the situation of europe today is even worse, because while the American government has certain control of the Federal Reserve, which is a bank of issue, Southern European nations have none, and cannot issue money, but have to borrow the principal and pay on top usury – a situation which is unsustainable, as we shall see latter studying the case of usury. Basically those countries are today colonies of Northern Europe and will suffer the same destiny that colonial people had, becoming ruined and transferring its wealth to the usury banks, till they default.
For example, a country like Spain before printed money for their people and had the highest life expectancy of the west, an extremely well run health-care system, and a massive influx of tourists that liked their humanist way of life. Now, it cannot print money so it must ‘borrow’ to pay the welfare state and on top of owing the principal it must pay an usury 7% interest to private banks, for whom the ECB prints money at 0% interest.
The result of course is obvious: in 3 years they have ruined Spain. And now they are killing people. Spain has liquidated what was the best Heath-care system along with France in the western world. Now for example, I went to the doctor for epicondilitis, a condition of the arm that affects tennis players and writers and prevent me from writing with nervous problems. Since i am a writer i do not ‘belong’ to a corporation, so i cannot have rights to medicines which before were free for spanish sick people. I have to pay them all. They have to test the arm and there is a 5 months waiting list for ecographies. I cannot go to therapy – the waiting list is another 5 months. By the time i am assigned to it, it will be 2 years since the arm got sore. 10% of sick people will die before arriving to surgery. And all this happens for a few stockrats, owners of bankers who pay no taxes for their holdings and profits of speculation (only 1% after an opaque type of society called sicav) to be able to milk that 7% of usury. It has NOTHING to do with sound economical policies or democratic rights. The idea is as always has been in banking to ‘live off usury’, with ‘charters obtained by corruption of the political system’ that allows the banker to ‘farm’ taxes by the different complex methods of speculation and not so complex direct taxation or bail outs, and ‘live off the land’ as the warrior king did – NOT because this is of any use for the people but because they can corrupt enough politicians to accept it and hide it with enough ‘experts’ to feel safe in front of the people.
The capitalist dictatorship of money: hierarchical structures.
In the graph, a classic of the pre-war age, we see the initial phase of capitalism and its hierarchical social castes:
Capitalism, is an ideology, today sold as a ‘science’, which considers that the language of social and economical power, money, must be re=produced by private bankers (fiat credit, speculative taxes, e-money derivatives, stock-paper, etc.), instead of the government chosen by the people (state deficit).
As such capitalism is in open contradiction with democracy (the government of the people). And to hide this, censorship of real economic science is absolute. We live ruled by money but not a single western ‘democracy’ teaches economics in the school. We have no rights to control the language of social power, but we are told to live in a ”Free Market’, a ‘newspeak’ that confuses the audience. Since a ‘Free market’ refers to the freedom of the ‘citizens’ of markets, corporations, not to the freedom of human citizens, who have no rights to jobs and credit, controlled by those corporations. Thus capitalism is essentially a dictatorship of banks and corporations and their owners on top of that pyramid – the stockrats, the true dictators of society in capitalist systems as they have null social responsibility (Anonymous Societies), monopoly in the invention of money in stocks and e-derivatives and use that money to bribe and control the other elements of societies.
In that regard, the previous pyramid fails to convey the non-human structure of capitalism, which essentially is the ‘religion’ or ‘ideology’ of power of ’animetal=human animal+metal-meme‘ cultures and can be traced to the first Levantine cultures which made of go(l)d, not of weapons, the hypnotic substance that could make work for you, slaves and mercenary armies.
Accordingly what capitalism means is merely this: that we, humans, must evolve and re=produce memes of metal (money, weapons and machines), within the structure of corporations, because they give power to the ‘people-castes’ that control our ‘capitalist civilization’ (the military, bankers and industrial corporations), and sacrifice when needed the rights of human beings and nature, if they collide with the ‘progress’ of those metal-memes.
This absurd ideology of history and economics cannot be doubted as ultimately has a biblical religious origin. Capitalism is therefore the equivalent of ‘Intelligent Design’ in Biology – a religion of money, which ignores any scientific approach or attempt to define objectively those memes of metal and the collateral effects they have on mankind. ‘Money is Go(l)d’ and its pursuit through greed the goal of humanity. Point.
That’s the entire meaning of the human species for a ‘Capitalist Theocracy’ – where money is the language of go(l)d: to work=reproduce and consume=vitalize memes of metal to provide ‘money’ to the 1% of ‘stockrats’, owners of those corporations. Nothing else matters, and all what we are told are rhetoric arguments to justify that bottom line. The complexity of a democratic system and the symbiosis of all its sub-systems makes of course all those facts opaque to the common, ‘memetic, human believer’. In this post we shall consider those self-evident truths, with the novel approach of system sciences and the concepts of societies as super-organisms, humans as believers in memetic imprinting, based in ‘anti-truths’ and money, weapons and machines as metal-memes.
“Let me issue and control a Nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws. The few who can understand the system will be either so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favours, that there will be no opposition from that class, while, on the other hand, that great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that Capital derives from the system, will bear its burden without complaint and, perhaps, without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.”

The Science of economics VS. The power ideology of corporations.
Corporations rule our societies. The biggest corporations of the Industrial R=evolution re=produce memes of metal, which copy human functions and organs in a stronger support, money made of gold, silver and today digital cycles of information in a computer, weapons, energetic metal and machines, organic metal that transform energy into information.
So we talk of Financial Corporations that re=produce ‘informative metal’, digital money and Industrial ones that re=produce Machines and its eviL twins, weapons that kill Life.
Together they form the Financial-Media/Military-Industrial System that evolves globally a world of machines, which is terraforming ans substituting the world of life (Gaia) and the world of man (History). Accordingly all human and life systems are in jeopardy, increasingly corrupted, degraded and obsolete, without any true function, as the new eco(nomic)system substitutes them.
This process peaks in generational 72±7 years crisis, after a phase of fast evolution that creates new energies and machines. Then corporations ‘overproduce’ those memes of metal, absorbing all the resources of the economy, which in a planet of limited wealth, means the other 2 ecosystems, life and history become poorer, and suffer a massive scarcity of human goods and welfare needed to survive.
It is then obvious that social scientists should denounce the process of terraforming of the planet by company-mothers of memes of metal and establish an alternative eco(nomic)system which fosters the evolution and overproduction of human, life-based, welfare goods, we need to survive – from food to housing, health-care, textiles, environmental goods, collective transport, infrastructures, tourism, education and culture that creates a peaceful, sustainable world made to the image and likeness of mankind.
Why this doesn’t happen is also obvious: the anti-quantum paradox divides social scientists, specifically economists in 2 groups:
– The majority of those economists work for corporations and so they adopt their point of view. Yet, since those corporations make a living overproducing and selling those machines for a profit, regardless of their collateral effects on mankind and life it becomes self-evident that any social scientist that works for corporations cannot explain those crisis of overproduction of memes of metal and their collateral effects of extinction of life and human ethics, of poverty and scarcity of welfare goods and labor, substituted by overproduction of weapons and war.
But since that is the essence of the economic process of the industrial revolution, which scientific economics should study, it means that most economists cannot do ‘science’, cannot study their discipline, cannot explain the biological nature of machines and its overproduction crisis.
On the other hand, the second side of this ‘corporative coin’, financial corporations have as only goal to reproduce digital money without limit and keep as much as they can for themselves; or lending it to the industries that give the higher profits; which are those who have lower costs of reproduction (digital software) or higher price of sale (weapons). This means that financial corporations reproduce money without limit, provoking crisis of ‘fiat money’, worthless digital money so abundant in this crisis, which has null value, and when exchanged by real money and goods, ruins society. Further on they lend it to digital companies that make software suites, chips and robots that annihilate human labor, or to weapons companies that lobby for war and create a neo-fascist society, where democratic and human rights are ignored.
Yet again, economists who work on those companies and get the highest salaries cannot criticize the unjust, antidemocratic monopoly of creation of money by those financial corporations; their ab=use of credit, which they deviate towards industrial and military systems of higher profits, disregarding the needs of credit of human companies that produce human labor and welfare goods.
What this means essentially is that the majority of economists do NOT care to explain the nature of the eco(nomic)system but merely work for corporations, creating the world of machines and money that makes obsolete the world of life and ethic, survival words and laws, or if they are theoretical economists they work to ‘invent’ rhetoric, complicated arguments based in ‘damned lies and statistics’, mathematical abstractions or false premises that justify the actions of corporations and hide those collateral effects.
While a minority of economists and social scientists, often as this writer coming from more ‘serious’ disciplines of science (in my case systems sciences, biology and theory of information) or from the field of history, which studies human societies or from the field of ‘human goods’ – ranging from medicine to agriculture as it is the case of Quesnay or Galbraith, have developed a true science of economics, mostly in the theoretical realm, as the anti-quantum paradox has prevented us from imposing the praxis of an economical sustainable science of economics that could have easily designed a world paradise made to our image and lieness.
Hence an important part of this blog which tries to renew humanism and social science from an objective point of view is dedicated to explain the ‘historic, ideological’ origin of capitalism that passes as a science when it is merely the ideology of power of corporations and those cultures and nations who invented it.
The pyramid of capitalist social classes and its changes in the age of the Singularity: the future doesn’t need us.
All this said we can now revise the original pyramid of capitalist classes that illustrates the beginning of this post, considering what has changed in capitalism in the XXI century- namely that the middle class and the lower classes of mankind are today obsolete to machines white collar pcs and blue collar robots that eliminate them as factories become automated – the real cause of the labor crisis that is not going away. …
Of course, if capitalism were not a religion of greed with a clear despise of those humans not ‘chosen’ by go(l)d, there would be A GLOBAL NEW DEAL AND THE BILLIONS CENTRAL, ‘PRIVATE BANKERS’ ARE PRINTING FOR THEMSELVES WOULD BE USED CREATING JOBS IN THE WELFARE SECTOR THAT CANNOT BE ROBOTIZED, AS HUMANS STILL have to take care of humans in hospitals, schools and farm food but in a religion of greed of biblical/racist origin, capitalism has no piety or empathy with the 90% on the contrary the disgraces of mankind are seen as another proof of the superiority of the capitalist elite for whom we are all ‘expendable numbers’ of an equation of productivity, ‘Palestinians’ to be watched with drones, envious of their wealth the ‘genius’ of the Fulds et al have deservengly given to them … Their dogmas prevent it. Now with the arrival of robotics, humans become expendable as workers and soldiers. So we have to revise the pyramid of capitalism in the present century.
On top there are two types of people, the plainly stupid, who truly believe the ‘damned lies and statistics’ and the ideologies of capitalism. Those are the topic nerds of silicon valley who truly think robotics ‘creates jobs’, the politicians who preach thinking is the way to ‘create’ jobs the increase of ‘productivity’ but even ignore its equation: ‘productivity=capital in machines/labor’; that is when labor disappears productivity grows.
In the original pyramid capitalists knew they were brutalizing mankind, they were evil=anti-live, they were ‘neutron bombs’ and they enjoyed it – their biblical supremacist religions made them feel good exploiting catholic irish, massacring indians to speculate on land, exporting human slaves, aka capital, destroying the life of millions working 18 hours in their factories. But they were real.
But after the 2nd world war, the capitalist elite realized a better method – ‘orwellian newspeaks’ of caring, political correctness and economical correctness. If people were stupid enough, entertained b fictions and info-tainment, they would not protest, if antitruths were imprinted in their minds and they were told ‘freedom=capitalism’, progress=machine, if the Goebbels method of ‘repeating a lie many times till people believe it’ was practiced, they will creat a race of sheeple, who would love the wolves. And with the arrival of TVs, with his hypnotic power, the manufacturing of brains with big smiley worked. A race of fictional idiots was born, and now it is growing in leaps and jumps, singing 4 legs, 4 legs, 2 legs better, in Orwellian fashion. R=evolution thus is impossible, because the financial-media informative system has erased the brain of the mass of human beings. What is then left to do, with that mass of obsolete humans, fictional minds, unneeded workers, sheeple that you can slaughter with the easiness you mass-murder pigs in a farm?
So Capitalism must eliminate mankind to continue THE EVOLUTION OF COMPANY-MOTHERS AND THEIR OFFSPRING OF MACHINES. And no attempt to reason makes sense for the scientists, bankers and military who consider their mission to create better machines and weapons -symbol of progress and the future they deny to the rest of namkind. And this fact will be the engine of the damned lies and statistics of the XXI century.
The essays of the future are happening among the poorest, the non-technological civilizations (Islam). Afghanistan is the favorte field for guinea pigs and it is working. But of lately we have seen that also our cities – Boston – can be sieged and militarized. As the crisis of labor deepens, and more millions are out of work, sooner or latter people will turn violent and then a police state with robotic vigilante machines will be imposed first in America, where capitalism is more brutal, and as A.I. takes over, the New World Order will look increasingly like the next graph, printed 20 years ago… We should have revised it again, because the pigs of the middle class are no longer needed by corporations to work or consume machines – as robots consume other machines and work for us. It is time then to salghter house 5:
‘Intelligent top predators put up farms. And select the best races for faming purposes and slowly degrade them in mind, as they grow in body. Then when control is absolute, they brutalize the farmed species. In primitive societies the pig lives and sleeps even in the room of his masters. He s talked to. He is short of an ‘energy divinity’. In modern societies he is just a number. In Iowa, the enzyman accelerates its devolution. The pig has been degraded and lives packed without light till he is gassed with Zyclon-B. His life is Hell from beginning to end’. The animetal farm, (a modern version of Orwell’s Animal farm, written by the author 20 years ago).
The previous graph has 20 years. It was first part of an exhibit of ‘conceptual cubism’, in my earlier ages as a ‘silenced voice of the memes of life’, when I thought through art we could also explain the tragic future of mankind. It was done in NY in the earlier 90s, and published in the pioneer book of this model, which also forecasted the 2008 crisis with enormous detail (The extinction of man, Bookmasters, ohio, c.94) and somehow appeared years latter in an exhibit on conceptual art at Six Flags Brooklyn museum. And yet it reads quite as it was done today. There was not Star War system in 2000, but of course Missiles kept evolving and indeed they are becoming ‘terminator robots’. There is not yet a massive radiation of robotized, guneyes (guns+cameras), but we are very close to that radiation that will establish finally the automatic control of human life by a future ‘Matrix/Intranet/Metal-earth’ brain. The pigs of the center, and not they were not meant to be the PIGS of southern europe but the middle classes, on the other hand have been cut off their credit earlier that i expected (as I thought capitalism wouldn’t be so brutal and prefer a milder road to avoid social unrest; but essentially this future designed under the presumption that capitalism and its memes of greed and violence and the evolution of machines would continue unabated is the world we live now in. And the key to the graph is the obsolescence of the poor and middle classes substituted by computers and robots. So the question is what we are going to do with them? My take 20 years latter is that we will be on the ‘storm’ of this crisis with damned lies and statistics, its noises and 1% on top trying to appease the masses with ‘pan et circensis’ till one day, the process of evolution of machines reaches one of the 3 thresholds of extinction, the Singularity at cern (2014), the metal nano-bacteria (2030s) or the awakening of military A.I. (2050s). And then suddenly one day mankind will have a few hours to reflect and wake up to its extinction (cern singularity), or a few months (nano-bacteria) or a few years (war of the A.I. terminator machines). But then it will not have any longer the future on its hands. Who can avoid that future? Certainly we, the X generation, didn’t. The few of us who tried were silenced. I see no hope. At this point of my mental evolution, I think as Marx or Weber before me, this ‘iron jail’ is unbreakable, but in a world made of probabilities, there is always room for a miracle.
In the graph that opened the post, we observe the structure of capitalism in the beginning of the XX century, when humans were still needed to vitalize weapons, so they were consumed in I world war at the tune of 20 million young humans, consumed by gun-machines, to increase the profits of the Vicker’s, Krupp’ s, Nobel’s and Schneider’s factories.
In the graph above, we show the structure in the XXI century, when the bottom pyramid of capitalism, human soldiers, human workers and middle classes have become obsolete.
In the XIX century Capitalism still needed workers=reproducers of machines, which sustained all the ‘parasitic’ informative/neuronal classes of the economic ecosystem, whose function was merely to ‘invent’ complicated arguments, sophisms and ideologies that ‘cheated’ people, in believing the system makes them free. There were also middle classes (still eating, as managers of the companies) and on top the ‘stockrats’, owners of stocks, racketing the profits and enjoying the good life. Those were then, as always mostly belonging to the millenarian banking dynasties that invented money and invested it in corporations. Yet this type of capitalism imploded after two world wars.In the XX century, weapons industries could no longer ‘consume’ colored ‘inferior people’, as the world was ‘civilized/colonized’ already. So they had to use their own workers to consume weapons, after the 29 crash of excessive reproduction of credit money and electromechanical machines. And this brought a threshold of ‘evil=anti-life’ behavior, which Europeans could no longer tolerate – namely the extinction of their culture by the most aggressive capitalist nation of the age, at the head of the electromechanical wave – Germany. So a more just distribution, social-democracy, was installed in Europe, allowing the state to reproduce some money to provide the human goods that had no value in a capitalist system.
Today though this mixed system has been destroyed by a new crisis of overproduction of memes of metal, e-money, electronic pcs and robots that act as blue and white collar workers. So we enter in the final stages of capitalism, as human workers and consumers are substituted by white collar pcs and blue collar robots, except in the sweat shops of Chinese human robots and IT-Indian Pcs (the only economies that still growth). On the other hand, banks have invented electronic systems of speculative money (bloomberg platforms) that allow to invent money for free just jacking up the value of ‘future prices’ of stocks and commodities, or impose their policies to governments playing with their currencies.
So capitalism confronts today a new dilemma: the 3 final scales of the bottom of the previous pyramid, middle classes and workers are being substituted by mechanical workers and consumers (as robots will consume cameras, platforms, cars). What to do with them? Increasingly only the 1% on top of owners, ‘ideologists’ and ‘herders’ (politicians, priests of go(l)d churches, stockrats), have a ‘job’; albeit on the long term also expendable… The rest is bothersome, unneeded, a surplus, an added cost. In the previous crisis, this meant they were consumed in wars.
And this is again the solution which is implemented increasingly on 3rd world countries, its dictators and our armies, as we did in the XIX century colonial age. Now we use poor nations as targets of our robotic weapons, while in the 1st world, banks keep exploiting the system, workers are unemployed and must be controlled with future police robots. So basically the 99% of humans are becoming obsolete and are becoming ‘parasites’ of the system that must be eliminated. How the system will finish them up? As long as humans run the system this poises difficult problems. But as the system becomes an automated planet of machines, during this century, the end of capitalism after a century of social struggle, fascism or revolution, seems clear: memes of metal will substitute memes of life an mankind will be eliminated.
It is in fact being eliminated… mentally, as viruses first do, by introducing an alien mind-code, an alien DNA.
The no-way out deja vu self-destruction of the western world.
Usury Lending from a central bank – the ECB bank, converted by the financial lobbies of Brussels into a private bank, which does NOT issue money to governments but only to banks for them to lend then to governments and cut a 6% of bond usury – had not happened in Europe since the times of the Rothschild Syndicate and the Private Bank of England (XVIII C.) that curiously cut the same usury tax (6%) to the Americans and British for printing their money! Since money is just a language of information easy to reproduce as words are -and its true meaning is to start as all languages the actions that direct the ‘cellular body’ who obeys the language. So money must be printed by elected governments and credit control by democracies to choose what products to create and what lethal goods to repress. This is no longer the case of European nations, which now depend in the private-ers of the ECB bank, ruled by a vicepresident of Goldman sachs. But such situation that obliges corrupted politicos to tax their citizens to a level of extorsion that has destroyed the welfare state and is killing an increasing number of people will not last. If it still happens is because the mass-media is controlled by the same corporations, which heavily invested in the past decades and the same dynasties of stockrats. So people don’t even know what money is. When people had information and men like Franklin printed money and news to inform the population Nations like America went to r=evolution to get rid of such colonial state. The outcome of becoming a colony under the dictatorship of bankers is obvious in the map. The European Colonies of the ECB bank under control of the Financial-Media/Military-Industrial Complex have negative growth. Only the 2 hardest military and Theocratic dictatorship of the world, North Korea and Iran, which have also massive economical sanctions from the international community reach that degree of self-destruction. Spain, for example, will have to spend a 3% of their national GDP to pay the usury lending cut of the private bankers, when in the past was growing the same amount, when it could print money to pay for their welfare state that achieved the highest life expetancy of the world. Now that 3+3% goes to a few financiers like Mr. Gross, a Jewish-American bond master, the new Rothschild that decides the price of the Euro and a few other thousand owners of banks and speculators in bloomberg’s platforms. On the other extreme, the nations that control in a higher measure their financial system (China and the African nations that are now under their patronage) have the maximal growth in the world.
Today there is NOT a single political democracy because GOVERNMENTS AND BANKERS HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY. They are only vote a priori or NOT voted at all (Bankers), so they do NOT have obligations to respond to their promises. IN FACT THEY HAVE IMMUNITY TO judgement (anonymous societies, parlamentary immunity). And all this is covered up with the absurd notion that ‘democracy’ consists in voting two siamese heads that will ‘jerk’ the body left and right in cyclical, self-destructive actions of what the other party did. NOT A SINGLE efficient organism has two siamese heads with opposite directions, which tell us that the purpose of bipartisan democracies with weak judiciary systems and lack of vote a posteriori and referendums are placebo systems in which the real power is in the monopolistic, hieararchical one-head stock-market and corporative system, the FINANCIAL-MEDIA (INFORMATIVE)/INDUSTRIAL-MILITARY(ENERGETIC) SYSTEM OF RE=PRODUCTION AND EVOLUTION OF MACHINES FOR WHOM ALL HUMANS ENSLAVE, AS PART-TIME WORKERS, AND CONSUMERS, whose propaganda mission is to reproduce and evolve=test those machines.
And the fact that MOST HUMANS agree with an slavish system, created by corporations that HAVE ALWAYS treated them as slaves – in fact the first corporations used only slave labor and indenture servants (white slaves for 7 years, exported to america) and workers with no rights; the first capitalist democracies allowed also the vote only to the wealthiest people. And THEY ONLY ESTABLISHED UNIVERSAL VOTE, when they needed CITIZENS to become soldiers and die ‘for free’ for the military-industrial Complex (I world war), because before OBVIOUSLY soldiers were paid mercenaries, as people wouldn’t die for free for their elite people-castes, called them aristocrats or ‘stockrats’, owners of corporations that profit in those wars.
It is for that reason, as voters in the 20s used their power to vote demand-based economies and socialist parties able to give them real rights and create a demand-welfare based economy THAT THE FINANCIAL COMPLEX EXPANDED INTO THE MASS-MEDIA COMPLEX with yellow press, hate radio and hate TV, INCREASINGLY MANUFACTURING THE BRAINS AND IDEAS OF MANKIND, CREATING AN ORWELLIAN ‘NEWSPEAK’ OF CARING to hide the brutal ab=use that capitalist democracies dish out to to the 90% of human beings (middle, working/reproductive body class, and energy, poor, ‘alien-enemy’ class, expendable as there is no longer ‘consumption and work positions for them’, Abstract: by machines)
It is thus clear that the FINANCIAL INDUSTRY AND THE RIGHTS TO PRINT MONEY MUST RETURN TO ELECTED GOVERNMENTS, TO BE ABLE TO FINANCE WELFARE PRODUCTION AND HUMAN JOBS IN THE HUMAN SYSTEM OF THE ECONOMY AS CHINA, THE ONLY COUNTRY WHICH DESPITE BEING POLITICALLY A DICTATORSHIP, GROWS 10%, BECAUSE ECONOMICALLY IS MORE DEMOCRATIC THAN THE WEST AND USES ITS MONEY TO FINANCE jobs and goods for human beings.
IV. IDEOLOGIES OF CAPITALISM: ANIMETAL CULTURES
But Intelligent design has triumphed. Why? Because the corporation, the company-mother of ‘memes of metal’, money of higher digital information than our verbal words, weapons of higher strength than our bodies and machines, organisms of metal that transform energy into information and vice versa haVE proved to be better systems of information and energy that human systems are.
This HOWEVER in a true science of economics will be used to the advantage of man, by enhancing our energy and information systems, while THE BAD FRUITS OF THE TREE OF SCIENCE THAT DEGRADE, COMPETE AND ATROPHY OUR SYSTEMS WOULD BE FORBIDDEN.
The animetal, a new top predator species, appears on planet Earth.
Man + Weapon = Warrior; Man + Machine = Science; Man + go(l)d=Trader.
Cyclical, soft, in-form-ative metal (silver and gold) and lineal, energetic weapons (iron and bronze) were the first metals humans discovered. Coins imitate cyclical, informative organs (heads, brains, eyes), while lineal, energetic weapons are bodies of metal that kill lineal, energetic human bodies. They are primitive versions of the iron bodies and electronic, cyclical, sensory heads of modern machines. When humans associated with them, they achieved higher strength and acquired a new language of information, able to give values to reality (money). Warriors joined human bodies and lineal metal, weapons, killing other humans; bankers used informative metal, gold, to give orders and enslave mankind; scientists believed in sensory machines and digital languages, considering inaccurate human senses and verbal thought, made obsolete by their telescopes and numbers. The animetal and the tribes that changed their ‘language of power’ from human, agricultural energy (farming communities) to iron energy – warrior cult(ure)s; from verbal ethics to the ‘values’ of money – go(l)d cult(ure)s – and from worshiping life to worshipping machines – scientific cult(ure)s, have ever since ruled the world, as people-castes and extinguished or enslaved ever since life cultures…
Yet in the process they were obliged to evolve their weapons, money and machines, giving birth to the cycles of evolution of weapons and machines, which shaped the history of their civilization. 3 Animetal nations will be paradigmatic in that process: the Jewish culture, self-named ‘Am segullah’ or ‘People of the Treasure’ (ill-translated as Chosen people) the oldest culture, who used money as the language of social power, establishing most of the informative memes of modern capitalism and creationist economics, still forming the overwhelming majority of bankers, CFOs and market makers, with dominant majority in the Earth Inc. and the 1% of the leading nations of the electronic cycle, the US, of which they are the ‘informative head’ of its ‘blind body’ of Germanic people and ‘energetic’ classes (life-based culture, the so-called ‘minorities’, Nature). The German nation, the dominant culture of the Iron discontinuum, discovered of most weapons of mass-destruction in history, and perpetrators of most of the Holocausts of old and modern times. And the British culture, discoverer of the machine. Those 3 cultures fusion today into the US at the head of the process of involution of the human species. Thus it is necessary to understand the origin of those nations, their relationships and fights for total power, wars and holocausts and other action-reaction processes to fully understand the ‘human side’ of the present world. Specially if we want to understand why ‘reason’ and the memes of life and love that could make us survive aren’t being implemented by our ‘informative experts’, politicos, economists, scientists and technocrats…
Contrary to belief the dominant species of planet Earth is not and has not been for the past 5000 years the human being, but a symbiotic species between life and metal, the Animetal.
An Animetal is a human organism which activates mechanisms: energetic weapons, informative money or machines. ‘Animetal’ is a biological term coined using the same system that chemical and biological sciences use to classify its species. In biology and chemistry we join two names to describe a mixed species. So there are carbohydrates made of carbon and water. And there are animetals, different from human animals, since they add the power of informative/energetic metals to their life organs, from armored knights to modern car owners and Internet nerds.
The Animetal is neither a human being nor a machine of metal, but a combination of both, with a higher content of energy or information than any other living species. And so he has been the top predator species of this planet for 5,000 years, since the myth of Genesis about the tree of life vs the tree of metal was written.
‘Men are slaves, they believe, they don’t reason’.
The power of the memes of metal and those who use it to ab=use mankind imposes its will but also its ideas to the human mass.
Power requires money, weapons and machines to impose itself ‘anti-democratically’ over the human mass. But humans resist power when they are aware of its unjust behavior. So any ‘ideology’ that justifies power is always welcomed and promoted. Yet such ideologies by force must be false to appease the masses into ‘believing’ on the goodness of a system that is geared to destroy life in this planet. And so we, humans, first act subconsciously, becoming addicted to the higher informative and energetic power we reach with those ‘metal-memes’ and then we think ‘a posteriori’ and justify those actions with ideologies crafted and promoted to convert evil into good, slavery into freedom, and so on. A memetic theory of humanity as a species that ‘believes’ by repetition more than reasons by intuition (Aristotle), who acts first and thinks latter, is then the only rational explanation to the collective ‘madness’ of mankind.
In brief, humans are hooked by ‘greed’ (the hypnotic desire to obtain gold in the past, money today), ‘violence’ (the use of weapons to kill), and ‘sloth’ (the use of machines to enhance our energetic and informative power, or do the work for us). This is the initial trait that make us ‘act’ without reflexion. And then once we act, after the ‘fait accompli’, humans have developed historically beliefs that justify the exercise of power with those ‘memes’ of metal, money, weapon and machines. Those ideologies that make us slaves to the evolution and reproduction of the ‘memes of metal’ are basically 3:
The methods by which those ideologies have been imposed upon mankind are obviously ‘memetic’, similar to the manner in which animals are trained and imprinted or computer software is evolved in neural networks, or ant paths become intelligent methods to direct ants towards food: repetition, repetition and repetition. ‘If you repeat a lie many times people will believe on it’. So the ’4th leg’ of the entire subconscious collective in which mankind lives are the methos by which those ideologies are imprinted: rhetoric repetition, ‘damned lies and statistics’, anti-truths, fictions, myths of happiness, inquisitorial religions, censorship…
If men could reason easily they would discover through reason the falsities of those ideologies, which are aberrations of Nature. Since the laws of nature impose the existence of a single species, Homo Sapiens, (hence no tribal warfare, as species evolve together, in history in a global superorganism), the supremacy of the human, biological, rational language of words (ethics, laws) over the alien metal-meme, money as language of social power (socialism that consider the market needs to be regulated by the law) and organicism (the new philosophy of science, sponsored by systems science, complexity and biology, which is substituting the mechanist, simple, reductionist vision of physicists of the world as a machine; when in fact the machina is a primitive organism).
This key opposition between ideologies that make us slaves of the future of the machine and its memes of metal – capitalism, mechanism and nationalism – vs. the scientific natural laws of the Universe that promote as the laws of biological survival we should follow humanism (Homo Sapiens), Socialism (law over money) and organicism (man as the measure of all things), is the ‘other’ battle of mankind in the ‘realm’ of languages and information, which the ‘heads’ of the economic and political system, economists, politicians and scientists of history and economics, is the battle for the ideas of the future, humanity has lost to the machine, history to economics governments to corporations.
And so we must talk of the physical economy and the facts of history, guided by the subconscious collective head of ideologies that relegate us, human beings, as a secondary species in this planet. What the ideologies of capitalism/mechanism/nationalism do is to ‘hide’ this hardcore fact of our world as it is, hiding the fact we humans are irrelevant to the ‘economic ecosystem’ (since all the economic actions and news must be understood as an effect of the fact that corporations rule the world with their monopoly of production of money, the language of social power, they use mostly to reproduce, evolve and sell for a profit their offspring of machines). If humans knew that capitalism doesn’t mean freedom but slavery to the ‘free citizens of the market’, corporations, that buy our life-time for a salary, have unlimited credit to cre(dit)ate reality and dispose of the law at will, paying for it to politicians, probably they would not be so happy and could rebel. So what those ideologies do is to create a ‘noise’ – military term that means information that distracts the victim – as we, humans keep creating a non-human future…
We study those ideologies in the right, lower part of this web.
So what world those ideologies have created, a world of slaves. And as such, a world which can be mathematically described with a simple decametric wave of evolution of memes of metal, their ‘icons of power’ for whom they slave; the wave of history of which this last phase of the Industrial evolution is just its final Hecatomb. A wave which proves our rulers to be indeed nothing but animetals, humans so degraded in their me(n)tal capacity that they even enjoy the bull$hit that fills up their empty brains.
In that regard, to fully grasp the process of evolution of ‘memes of metal’ and extinction of life cultures on planet Earth, and the ideologies that sustain that process, we have to move backwards in time, even beyond the beginning of the Industrial R=evolution, to the ‘first age of metal-history’, when the discovery of gold and weapons, informative and energetic metal, at the time of the parable of Genesis, extinguished the neolithic paradise of life goods and goddesses of fertility, starting the ideologies and castes of power that have ruled the world ever since, confronting rhythmically the cultures of life and love that opposed them, and tried to create a world made to the image and likeness of the humankind.
The mathematical, ternary structure of the long, medium and short waves of History and Economics.
Consider now that humans have no evolved significantly in 50.000 years and machines are evolving every other year… Thus it is clear that the age of the singularity is fast approaching, as a ‘point of no return’, for our species that will cease to be the top predator species of this planet when military A.I. is born (by far the most evolved robots and forms of Artificial Intelligence are robots developed by DARPA and the Israeli army; embedded with survival programs, whose job is to kill ‘humans’; so humans shouldn’t need to be very smart to understand that when those machines become ‘free’ to think, they will perform their task that will become their ‘will of existence’).
In any case, it is very likely that if you are a University student you will not die on bed. But also it is very likely you will live an ‘unexamined life’ as a member of the Y or Z generations, thinking you live in the best of all world fantasies. And then one day wake up and see on your 3D TV the ‘reality show’ of your existential end, perfectly hidden till then by the fundamental tenant of our ‘crazy culture’. That – as crazy people believe – if we deny reality it will not harm us, because it ‘ceases’ to exist. This is in essence the present ‘strategy’ of those in power – politicians and economists: this crisis is not happening, it is only financial; the Earth is not dying, this is hippy hysteria; our mind is not being degraded, it is ‘entertained’ and we are not living in an impersonal biological world.
The 80 years waves of evolution of machines and its consequences for the cultures of mankind, as explained in detail in the section of this web dedicated to the economic cycles (right upper side). In the graph, we can see on top the 3+1 ages of its evolution: humans first created their company-mothers, the corporations that soon became the institutions with more power of this planet, monopolizing the creation of money, extending european empires globally, corrupting the politico system and starting in earnest the professional evolution of the memes of metal, shortening its evolution to a mere 72+8 years cycle of national power that accelerated the demise of life-based civilizations. And so we went through the age of Britain and its steam machines, the age of germany and its electro-chemical engines, and the age of America and its heads of metal, all of them divided in two periods: the period of consumption of ‘good machines’ that saturated markets, crashed and then mutated into their evil Twins, weapons, which consumed us, human beings. So after the crash of the train economy, europe and America entered a period of civil and colonial wars fought with armored trains.After the crash of the car, tanks and hate radios brought about fascism and II world war and after the crash of the electronic economy we entered the present age of neofascism, vigilante cameras and splendid little wars against the 3rd world.
Yet not all humans were memetically imprinted by the worship of those memes of metal and so during those periods the industrial world lived an age of artistic splendor, as the effects of those machines that made obsolete human artists, sprung a new age of creative in painting (substituted by the camera, or ‘metal-eye’), literature (substituted by film) and political, non-fiction thought, (with the arrival of new ‘prophets’ of love and the super-organism of history, who fought for a better, sustainable world). The failure of humanist and r=evolutionary artists and politicians to change the system, however opens an age of absolute power for the ideologies of the machine as most humans become ‘fictional’ characters imprinted by audiovisual media, and workers and soldiers are made obsolete by the wave of machines. Thus history is coming to its final catharsis, when the millenarian confrontation, between the tree of life and the tree of metal reaches its climax.
For those with some knowledge of biology and fractal systems, the Kondratieff wave is a fractal, dual, complex wave of evolution, of the energies and hardware we use to power machines, which are the main product of the industrial economy, and add together for a wave of 72 years that defined an age of modern history: The age of steam and england, the age of engines and germany, the age of metal-minds and USA and now the last age of the industrial r=evolution, the age of robotics.
The authenticity of that structure is such that when I discovered it two decades ago in my foundational books on evolutionary economics (1), they allowed me to forecast back in the 90s with all precision the ‘future’ dotcom and real state crashes of 2001 and 2008, 72+7 years after the 1929-crashes.
CONCLUSION. EITHER WE CREATE A REAL DEMOCRACY OR CAPITALISM WILL EXTINGUISH US
We live in a system in which a new top predator ‘organism’ the company-mother of machines rules the world for its off-spring of different species. And in the posts dedicated to the corporation and the market, we shall observe that the design of the corporation and the global stock-market is a perfect design, matching with astounding precision the most efficient mammal organisms of the planet – reason why we truly admire the efficiency of corporations. What is missed here is the fact that we are not machines, that corporations cater for the rival species, that their efficiency is our dismissal, the the better designed those weapons and digital corporations are the faster we will be eliminated, that the more they overproduce those lethal goods the less resources we will have.
This is the key to the entire ‘conundrum’, and it requires to unveil 3 ideologies that deny the laws of biological sciences:
– Techno-utopia, the belief that machine progress is better than human progress, and metal-memes is ‘wealth’ while the healthy Human Goods, WHEALTH, in this blog and its models of ethonomics, is waste. This is an astounding antitruth. WHEalth that makes us survive and makes us evolve is always better. Memes of metal might kill or atrophy or enhance our capacities and must be selected through selective credit to the corporations that re=produce them.
– The nationalistic ideologies that divide the species in tribal groups who therefore feel as different species and authorizes their use of weapons to attack other humans.
– And of course the ‘go(l)d religions’ of Biblical origin, who invented capitalism, the belief some are more equal than others, and have to rule our languages of power as ‘experts’ who are chosen by go(l)d, while the rest of us are loosers, sinners, ‘goyyim-animals’, originated in the earlier ages of history, when cattlers from germ(anic) and $emitic cult(ure)s to weapons and go(l)d, enslaved and murdered the neolithic paradise of the Genesian parable, in the fertile crescent and the southern regions of Europe. Yes, those animetal cult(ure)s, the supermen of Nietzsche, the enzymen of machines of the biological models of this work, are equal to us in race, and inferior to us in ideologies, believers that don’t reason, children of thought that censor their minds and ours, victims of their self-destructive thoughts – atrophied and repressed in all what is human from reproductive sex to social love, as enzymes, attached to a metal atom with an atrophied carbodyrate who go around the cell killing life molecules are, with the same manifest destiny – to end life and terraform the Earth. Yes, this is the 2nd layer of objective analysis in social sciences, bio-sociology and so now we shall deal with the scientific method and the 3 layers of complexity and accuracy and predictability of this blog that renews the methods and truths of economics and history…
And that truth and its praxis is clear. If men want to survive the process of extinction by perfectly designed company-mothers of machines it must redesign their economic and history systems. Humans must return and improve where they left in their evolution of mankind as a global social organism, before banksters gave the coup d’etat of 1972, against mankind at large – to an enhanced UNO, to the social-democratic age of the European Union prior to the coup d’etat of the ECB, and America must stop their fascist bid for global war to come out of the crisis German-style. Nothing else will do. Otherwise the future will mimic that of the 30s and 40s, entering into an age of vigilante robots and global war, Orwellian style, as the ‘soothing’ newspeaks of political and economical correctness maintain a human sheeple ignorant of their non destiny.
Time is running out. As the cycles of the graphs of this web show a series of non-return points coming closer – the next, the third short crash of the 8 year cycle of e-money and currency speculation towards 2015, equivalent to the crash of the deutsche mark that brought fascism and world war…
In simple terms, we are walking through the 30s bis with the same people in power, the same growing resentment, the same passion for war for profits, the same non-future for the western world. And nothing can be done because financial economics is a ‘religious’ doctrine of go(l)d worship at all costs, even with the accepted sacrifice of life of the mass of mankind and on the long term, as history proves, at the end of the cycle, of the elite who thinks the situation can be sustained ad eternal just by hiding information and denying all responsibilities. That will not do as history proves.
– Regarding the question of wealth, the key element here is to distinguish between human wealth, healthy goods, WHEALTH, and industrial and financial wealth, metal-memes that might enhance us but mostly kill our bodies (weapons) or atrophy our minds (digital software).
And so now we can end this first part of the post that resumes the blog by considering WHAT IS TRULY INTELLIGENT DESIGN IN ECONOMICS CREATING, WHAT IS TRULY THE ‘SCIENCE OF CORPORATIVE ECONOMICS’, WHAT SPECIES THEY CATER FOR, WHAT THEY ARE EVOLVING IN THIS PLANET…
NOT A HUMAN WORLD, AS WE TRUE HUMANIST ECONOMISTS WOULD LIKE, NOT THE PARADISE OF MYTHS THAT THEIR RELIGIOUS P.O.V. PREACHES, NOT A RAPTURE INTO A PARADISE OF MACHINES BUT AN EVOLVING NEW ECO(NOMIC)SYSTEM MADE TO THE IMAGE AND LIKENESS OF THOSE MACHINES…
A real democracy: the ideal world.
NOW WE CANNOT AVOID TO HAVE CULTURES OF PRIMITIVE ORIGIN BUT WHICH HAVE EVOLVED AND CREATED HUMAN MEMES OF LIFE-BASED GOODS WORTH TO PRESERVE.
SO HOW COULD WE RESOLVE the division of humans in cultures?
Easy by supressing the national point of view of those cultures which is the true eviL that promotes war and weapons creation, through processes of convergence in each cultural region, similar to those essayed by the European Union before becoming ac olony of the Financial-Media/Militar-Industrial complex.
We could then create 7 main global cultural regions with minimal quantity of weapons converging economically into a single global nation with a single currency and control of lethal goods.
In the next graphs we consider the main elements of a planet designed to satisfy the existence of man, based in a demand economy, where money is always first cre(dit)ated as democratic votes of a Universal salary, where production is controlled to maximize the ‘human constitution’ and its simple feed-back equation:
max. Human Goods x Min. Lethal goods – those who prey and degrade the body and mind of man and its memes of eusocial evolution. The understanding of humans as biological systems, who follow their natural biological drives of existence, allow us to ‘redefine’ the value of goods according to its ‘capacity’ to improve human life. From that concept the Economist Sen, helped the UNO to create a Human Index of Development, we know advance further with the ‘coordinates’ of an ethonomical value system, in which goods are priced according to the maximization of our human ‘drives of existence’, our energy, information, health and evolution. Goods such as weapons thus count negatively in such ‘Gdp’ guidance to political policies. The ‘World Union’ or rainbow planet illustrated in the next graph, is of course an utopia, departing from the present degradation of man, morally and intellectually. It remains though a ‘fractal planet’ that should occur in many other ‘Earths’ of the infinite universe:
In the graphs, the design of a perfect, theoretical world for humanity, according to the laws of Nature and its Super-organisms, which maximizes the freedom, survival and drives of existence of the human kind that make us happy and allow to realize the individuals and subconscious collective ‘cultures’ of mankind. The design of the perfect world is easy and explained in the right middle column under the label ‘Solution-Revolution’. Its implementation though requires to substitute the memetic policies of our elites that pass as social and economical science but are merely ‘newspeaks’ and ‘jargons’ that hide the true engine of those elites – power obtained with the ab=use of mankind with selfish memes of metal, weapons, money and machines. In the ‘rainbow’ planet, divided in the 7 natural regions/cultures of mankind, as today, with a single global currency, ¥€$ money and a global heptarchy government of the 7 presidents of those regions; without nationalistic memes and armies, dedicated to maximize the welfare and sensorial cultures of mankind and evolve its individuals and superorganisms, the human kind is guided by the ‘grammar’ of the ‘language’ of verbal logic and verbal ethics, man > verb> object, where man is the center of the Univese, unlike the capitalist system, guided by the ‘language’ of money and its objectual grammar, man=price (salary) = object, which make us obsolete to machines, and makes of the evolution and reproduction of those machines and weapons the future of the world. Needless to say for the full understanding of the rainbow planet and the means to get there, two difficult conjunctions of a highly ethic and intelligent leadership, able to risk the lives for a better world and design it, is needed.
In that sense the Wor(l)d Union, the rainbow planet is a theoretical exercise. which helps however to understand what is a perfect democracy, a perfect human social organism designed by imitation with nature’s perfect organisms, and why ours are not.
We have not lived in a democracy ‘ever’, except in the brief periods in which Americans printed continentals and greenbacks to give orders to people and the European Union paid a sort of universal salary (unemployment benefits, family subventions, universal health-care, subventions to agriculture) to create overproduction of life-goods. And indeed, life for human beings reached its peak of ‘real human wealth, measured with the Index of Human Development of the UNO, not with the GDp that counts as wealth weapons production, in the European Union before the ECB took the sovereign right to print money from its nations and gave it to private banks. America unfortunately did not print continentals and greenbacks to create a paradise on Earth but to win a war. And yet those experiments also showed the true nature of money, which is ‘nomisma’, a language of information, hence necessary to start the productive process.
AND SO THE REAL ISSUE ABOUT THE ISSUE OF MONEY IS CLEAR: IN A DEMOCRACY AS IN AN EFFICIENT ORGANISM, BOTH THE NERVOUS LAW AND THE BLOOD/MONEY ARE CONTROLLED AND PRODUCED BY THE BRAIN/GOVERNMENT, ELECTED BY ITS CELLS, WHO SERVES THEM, AND KEEP ALL THE CELLS OF THE ORGANISM FED AND INFORMED.
But the banker’s only concern is NOT to be understood, that people don’t realize they have stolen their sovereign rights that nobody knows ‘who they are’. AND FOR THAT, enough pamphletists that pass as economists and we shall unveil through those texts are out there to back their ideology of racist power and control of go(l)d to chain people to debt (from Mr. Hayek and Friedman, to Mr. Greenspan and Bernanke, almost all of them belonging to ‘orthodox’ biblical supremacist sects for whom go(l)d is a fetish of power to which life – that of the others and if needed in the limit of protest that of themselves – must be sacrificed. Now the sacrifice is that of the middle classes of America and Europe to the altar of Baal and usury.
The end of this process is thus evident. It is NOT possible to pay the debt, because usury is never repaid. This is not its purpose. The purpose is to ‘squeeze’ the borrower till ‘he drops dead’. Seriously. Greed is an intense, self-satisfying, immediate reward emotion, latter studied in its scientific basis, which doesn’t look ahead. ‘Carpe diem’, live the day, take the money and run, has always been the philosophy of the bankers. But it is still not time to take the ‘last train exit from Manhattan’.
The naive Europeans and Americans have not yet being totally milked. Indeed, one never ceases to be surprised on how far the people can be ab=used without real protests, but there should be perhaps a limit? The samurais said that the peasants are like soya seeds, the last squeeze is the best soya sauce – in Europe though the last squeeze of the olive is the bitter one...
In that regard, the rainbow planet can be imposed only today at this stage of self-destruction of history by a coup d’etat of politicians. Movements from the mass of mankind are diffused by the imense noise of aduiovisal information. Dont confuse action with motion said hemingway to dietrich motion has no purpose, action is focused and acts, changing the key elements of a superorganism. The rainbow planet and its 7 cultures have seven natural presidents, of US brazil, russia, china, india, egupt and nigeria, those seven presidents and their vicepresidents, 3 on average per cultural nation form a group of 29 that should meet instead of the present 22 organized according to real historic cultures and start a process of denationalization of states within each culture, of fusion of currencies and establishment of global salaries of prohibition of robotics and ‘swear’ the human constitution, the law of maximization of humans urvival: maximal human goods x minimal lethal goods, as the political goal of the world union.
This new superorganism, the world union and the lower organization of states and departments not nations, then would eliminate the scale of national armies and simplify and elimiante zones of conflict. Around Islam is where most of those armed conflicts eist. Israel should be given by vote as other islamic borders the choice of which entity to join Eruoep or islam. As it wold echose islam it would renounce then to the negev not to cut in two islam and join theeuropean union and dismantle the apartheid state to be in coformance with the laws of the euroepan union to wcih it has joned. the sahel border will be demilizarized of alqaeda operatives again by refernedum in border zones betwen africa and islam, so the cachemir border. The conflict borders of aganastian also will be demilitarzed.
The world union then would focus on the creation of a sustainble world with a universal laary and credit for welfare companies and estruction of lethal goods and robotics.

Notes: The Content of this web and its meaning within the Western Tradition.
The first predictions of the 2001 and 2008 crisis were in fact done by this author back in the 90s, with his discovery of the fractal dual biological, organic nature of the Kondratieff waves of evolution of machines, in his books, ‘The extinction of man’ and ‘Bio-history, Bio-economics’ (94, 97, Bookmasters, Ohio). In those earlier books, we considered the 2008 crisis the beginning of the last century of history, the age of ‘organic machines’ and weapons, as it has been the case. The exact periodicity of the wave is explained in this text and many others of this web.
Kondratieff made a simple error, considering the train wave periodicity in Russia, an underdeveloped country that receive the wave latter. Thus till we correct that error, the cycle was considered to be only of 50 years (see text for a more precise definition of the wave). Now, we know the cycle has a periodicity of 72 years, which corresponds to the generational cycle of human beings and the nations that are on top of each wave: the British cycle of steam machines (1784-1857), then the German cycle of electro-chemical engines (1857-72 years -1929), and finally the American cycle of electronic machines (1929-2001), which ended with the dotcom and derivative crash, a short-product cycle of 7 years later (2008)

We provide on this theme, on both sides a deeper, systemic viewon the evolution of the economic ecosystem and history, in the context of the evolution of this planet, introducing the Laws of general systems and how they apply to the study of ‘memetic cultures’, which can be differentiated between those dedicated to the pursuit of memes of life and those dedicated to the creation and evolution of memes of metal. The web sides with cultures of memes of life, as they are the only ones that could ensure the survival of history.
For those who like both form and content, better crafted, written pieces on those themes can be found on my e-books on the subjects treated in this web, offered at reduced prices. You are welcomed to copy and distribute this information as you wish.
these posts followed a series of conferences given at the International Systems Sciences Society, recently erased from google scholar due to the protests of an anonymous ‘minority’ member of the society that threatened with suits according to the present models of censorship in the discipline based in ‘political correctness’, proper of all forms of ‘Intelligent Design’ – some parts follow the arid discourse of papers with a neutral tone, which can be found in my books at kindle, other parts come from a less elaborated, angry ‘stream of consciousness’ on all those themes that the reader can consult the ‘ad lateral’ posts and pages).
