I. THE SUPERORGANISMS OF HISTORY:
THE HUMAN SUPERORGANISM & THE ECONOMIC SYSTEM
The larger view: two languages that construct two different worlds.
This post introduces before we study in detail each crisis of overproduction, a wider view, that of the superorganisms of history, from a deeper perspective, that of general systems sciences. To fully grasp it, you should get familiar with the basic program of existence that drives the actions of all systems and the concept of memes and memetic cultures, since cultures are NOT genetic, but memetic, created by objects, instruments, goods of life or metal nature and the ‘imprinting’ of the mind with ideologies that foster the production of either of those goods.
Thus, we need to ennunciate some basic laws of general systems to understand the economic ecosystem, to understand social sciences, we need to bring a key element of the creative processes of the Universe, the role of information and social organisms in evolution. Since cultures, nations and civilizations are nothing else than a social organism.
Indeed, this final age of destruction of civilizations means an age of maximal profits, maximal cre(dit)ation of money (to pay for the war), maximal evolution of machines (evolved as weapons) and definitive solution to the crisis of unemployment (termination of soldiers), wealth distribution (the military-industrial complex takes it now all as the entire nation puts all its resources to the service of the machine). And this astounding absurdity of the triumphs of capitalism can only be explained from the systemic perspective, considering the economic ecosystem and the industrial revolution different ecosystem of life and the evolution of man…
YET AGAIN, to understand this duality between our species and social organisms (governments and civilizations) and human biological language that caters to our interests (verbal, ethic thought) and the other species and social organisms (machines and corporations) and the values of its language, digital money, which favors a world made to its image and likeness, we have to bring another key law of systems sciences, the duality of ethic vs. darwinian beahvior that applies today both to machines in their competition with humans, to company-mothers in their competition with governments and to cultures who side with money and weapons and do not respect the law, in their competition with societies based in democratic rights and religions of social love.
The law of eusocial evolution, natural to all species, which evolve together, sharing energy and information through common networks, when they recognize each other as equal being, cells of the same superorganism, is confronted by the law of darwinian devolution, in which species that consider each other different ab=use the others as relative energy of their selfish agenda.
In human superorganisms, the laws of eusocial evolution were perfectly defined by the great prophets of love, in the old age, by the messages of love of Buddha, Jesus and Mhmd, in the modern age by the work of the r=evolutionaries of history, with their motto ‘egalite, fraternite, solidarite’ and the socialist vision of a planet ruled by social love.
On the other side of history though ‘animetals=humans+memes of metal, money, weapons or machines’ perceived themselves as different, because of the power of their enhanced energetic weapons and informative, hypnotic money. So they don’t recognize other humans as equals, breaking the law of eusocial love and devolving history to a primitive ‘homo bacteria’ state, which is the dominant zeitgeist of our age. In the graph, a case of darwinian devolution by the power of weapons and one of eusocial evolution among two brothers of the same family.
Most people ignore that the Universe displays two “moral” behaviors, in order to enhance the survival of its species; behaviors which are repeated constantly in all the scales of the fractal Universe.
Similar “cells” of a same species, act in herds and organisms. They are parallel species that communicate energy and information, to evolve into more complex social organisms. We could say they “love” each other. In cases of social evolution the population of a certain species will socialize, and become a more complex organism, sharing their information and energy, often “hunting” together. The population will become a society more powerful than the individuals. Social evolution will enhance the power of the herd that survives better. In history, the survival mandate of social evolution became the concept of love in Natural Religion, and “equality, fraternity, and solidarity” in modern politics. It clearly justifies as natural behavior the idea that men should not compete with men, but work together to resolve the problems of our world as a “single, historic organism”.
Species which are different, abuse each other as relative energy. We might say they “hate” each other. Why? Because those species cannot communicate and act together. To communicate the emitter and the receptor must be essentially the same species, or at least must have similar informative and communicative organs.
When beings are very different and cannot decode their information, they absorb that force of communication as a form of energy, and feed on it. They consider the other species an energy source, and act in consequence as hunters. Then we talk of a Darwinian struggle, a fight between species, of hate, of predators and victims.
Now with that understanding we can explain the fundamental arrow of ‘creation’ of the Universe, which constantly uses languages of information and networks of energy, shared by self-similar, loving species, to evolve into new ‘complex systems’, as the next graph shows. It is in this context where social sciences and religions inscribe themselves, as both study the efficient form to create human social organisms, with scientific and ethic jargons:
In the left side we study in detail the previous graph, under the Program of the Universe and memetics the general structure of that program that makes a complex system to emerge. In this post we shall study the fight of the human collective verbal spirit and ethic wor(l)d, our nervous collective system of information, for the creation of a better efficient well-organized social superorganism of mankind and the reasons why this superorganism has not been created – merely the fact that other language and ecosystem, metal, money, digital thought and the machine, have evolved in such superorganism.
Let us be clear enough. This planet is not an abstract entity but a complex, organic, biological system whose laws have been cracked down by science; and so it is history and economics.
But what Bacon, one of the founders of the Scientific Method called the ‘Tribes of the Idol’ still rule supreme.
In that regard, the reader should know that he lives in an organic planet, Gaia, whose laws of evolution are simple, form a program resolved by complex theorist, which we were about to complete in the Neolithic, but has been aborted.
In that sense, we can very easily define a nation or partial God based in verbal, legal, ethic texts, as the informative brain of an organism of History. As the nervous system of your body and your nervous brain is the God of your cells that controls them with informative impulses, the book of revelation of a prophet, and his ethic laws are the gods of a society that is controlled and survives better when it obeys those Laws.
And their purpose was to create a global superorganism of mankind, as those messages of love evolved from smaller genetic groups (tribal religions) into oikoumene religions (Islam, Christianity) and finally into socialist cultures, which tried to design a single global superorganism of mankind in which all its cells had energy and information to survive (welfare state, socialism, supranational entities like EU and ONU).
So humans evolved in information as the previous graph shows, in a ternary, 3 horizon stages (as all systems do), from the Australopithecus to the homo erectus to the sapiens in its 2 main versions, the visual, spatial neanderthal, energetic species and the Homo sapiens verbalis, the informative one.
Then all systems evolve with the language of information from herds into superorganisms. So ants, the most successful animal, evolved eusocially into superorganism through the informative system of chemical pheromones. But we failed. We started that evolution from individuals to clans to cities to nations to religious civilizations but the last stage, the fusion of the 7 cultures of mankind,s studied in other parts of this text into a global superorganism which reproduces the goods humans need and made a sustainable planet, through social democracies, welfare states, UNO and EU like organizations, have failed.
And so because we humans have failed to evolve socially, but the Universe never fails, never stops evolving, never keeps the arrow of time still, a different superorganism is evolving on Earth, one made of machines, money and weapons, the financial->military->industrial complex of memes of metal, the global stock-market, the superorganism of machines, and so we must study, once we understand the natural evolution of man and its division in complementary races, the evolution of the memes of metal, its cultures and the way in which those cultures and memes, have ‘divided and win’ over the superorganism of history and become slaves of metal, of their memes, weapons, money and machines that kill us, brain-wash our brains and substitute the verbal messages of love and make su obsolete, as machines not only enhance our energy and information but basically atrophy our organs and substitute us.
The opposition between life and metal-memes based cultures.
‘Love each other as i have loved you’
So once we have introduced with the ‘hard-science’ jargon of systems the ‘hidden nature’ of our civilization, we shall consider the point of view of humanism, the ‘alternative culture’ based in the memes of life that ‘animetal cultures’ are in the process of extinguishing, replacing the paradise of life by the future hell of a world of machines in which men are obsolete.
It also seems fair, after that criticism, to make first a disclosure, given the fact that we live in a memetically imprinted culture, ‘written’ by the owners of the Financial-Media System, who have created a fairy tale of their past and so criticism of the dominant cultu(ure)s of the west and any model of history that opposes their ‘world-view’ is taboo.
This writer has sephardim and Indo-European genes but long ago he converted to the ideologies of the super-organism of history – socialism (words control money), humanism (all genetic humans belong to the same species) and organicism (the Universe is a complex, organic system and so are all its parts; so men should be the measure of all ‘things’ and not vice versa) and believes in eusocial love religions that foster the memes of life and our ‘biological, natural drives of existence’, natural food, verbal information, sexual reproduction and eusocial love. By this I mean:
– Any person of any ‘genetic pool’ can belong to a different memetic culture. Cultures are memes and individuals,while initially allocated to a certain memetic culture, if ‘free enough’, or intelligent enough to reason instead of believing its memetic imprinting can evolve from an animetal, ‘primitive’ cult(ure) into a rational one. This is what most of my ancestors ‘catalan marranos’ did. And so did many christian, socialist or hippie believers in the memes of love.
– As a member of one of the foremost life-based memetic culture (the Southern Mediterranean Greek-Italian-Hispanic, ‘Latin’ culture), belonging to a sub-culture with no nation or metal-memes of importance (els Paysos catalans, western Spain), I have no doubt what is the right choice of ‘culture’ to maximize the ‘function of existence’ and our ‘biological drives’ as a species, which is the ‘measure of freedom and self-fullfilment as a human being’. And indeed, this country is the one of the world of certain size with more ‘tourists’ per capita, which clearly means what people prefer in freedom. And what is more important, their memes will never endanger the future of mankind. So I will criticize strongly the 3 dominant animetal cultures, who discovered the main memes of metal, the british-machine culture, the Jewish-gold culture and the German-weapons culture, because they carry the memes that have repressed the ‘freedom and will’ of life in mankind, have extinguished most life-based cultures, are now extinguishing the remaining life-based cultures, including mine in this crisis (we are according to a racist slur invented by a German and spread by British-City bankers and Jewish-wall street bankers the ‘pigs’). And ultimately their repression of life memes, human senses, and languages (art, eusocial love), which makes them live obsessed by the development of the memes of metal, will cause our extinction as a species, as they are also the cultures that overwhelmingly are reproducing and evolving the weapons of the singularity.
Their pretension that their ‘single model’ of self-destruction is ‘natural’, impossible to change and the ‘law of the market’ is just a proof that they, perhaps cannot evolve and change, but there is an alternative model of life-based cultures, which if they ‘did not exist’ as a memetic culture or would not have the ‘manifest destiny’ of conquering all other cultures and destroy them could have flourish and created a paradise of life memes on Earth.
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).
All this said it is now clear that we, humans are building two different super-organisms:
– One of memes of life that foster our ‘drives of biological existence’, our need for natural energy and information, biological reproduction and social evolution through social love into complex social organisms – what we call the superorganisms of history, guided by verbal, ethic thought.
– But we are also building an organism with memes of metal, energetic weapons, informative machines and reproductive money, carried by digital languages.
The problem of our societies is that we have completely misunderstood the primacy of those languages and super-organisms, giving primacy to the economic super-organism and its digital, financial languages over the human super-organisms. Hence we are ‘terraforming the earth’ into a world of memes of metal and extinguishing all kind of species and memes of life. The super-organism of machines and memes of metal is not ‘bad for mankind’, ‘per se’. What is wrong is the order of primacy and power we give to those languages and memes, due to the absurd, dogmatic religion of ‘capitalist’ economics that considers the language of money ‘the invisible hand of god’, whose values must be obeyed, without any scientific study of its nature, values and systemic processes that build through that language the world we live in.
And so ultimately as in all systems, the key to the creation of one or other superorganism is the ‘language’ we use to control and create or cre(dit)ate those superorganisms, which are either:
– Verbal, ethic thought, our natural, biological language that values accordingly more the memes of life and humans.
– Digital money, which is made of informative, precious metals (gold, silver) today of digital cycles of e-money in informative machines; and so it values more the memes of metal, weapons and machines of the economic superorganism.
So since we have chosen to guide societies NOT with the values of words but with a metal-language, money and so our ‘capitalist’ culture develops and values more machines and weapons than human life and Nature:
In the Mandala graph that I will bring as many times as required following the rhetoric of the ‘other system’ – if you repeat a lie (or a truth in this case) many times people will believe it (become imprinted by it)’ Goebbels – we show the fundamental distinction we must do in a biological analysis of the superorganisms of history its languages, memes and cultures.
What matters are the memes, languages and ideologies that build the two type of cultures, ‘organs’ of the superorganisms of history and economics. In essence, a superorganism is created by the values of a certain language. The informative language of metal is gold. And its values are inverse to those of life. So the belief and use of go(l)d, of money as the only language that directs our society makes possible the expression of those anti-life values and the creation of a world according to them. Today the more complex system of machines uses digital information, e-money and the religion of go(l)d has evolved into the ‘science’ of capitalism expressed in the equations of classic economics. Yet the anti-life values of the language remain.
Languages of information design the future of the world by favoring those who speak and use the language. MONEY IS NOT WEALTH, IT IS ONLY a LANGUAGE OF INFORMATION made OF METAL, from gold to e-money cycles of computer, with metal values. And as all languages its real function is to ‘inform’ and allow the species that use it to regulate its ecosystem and organism, to select, what beings survive and what beings do not.
This planet has in fact gone through 3 ecosystems and languages in the past million years:
– Visual language whose values are those of efficient motion and force (max. energy x max. information) that define both beauty and top predator status among animal species. So the best ‘seers’, apes, felines and birds were selected.
– Verbal language, whose values define the best social strategies of survival of the human species (maximal sharing of energy and information = social love), which built efficient top predator societies in control of their environment. It made man, the species who better talks this language the top predator of the Earth. And among them it made the ethic man (priest or politician of a real theocracy of love or democracy) the highest ‘super-man’, NOT the warrior or banker, who would use:
– A digital language (money and science), that defines today the future with credit as it gives the orders of work and consume that before were delivered by verbal messages. And so now, when we have given it more importance to money than laws to rule society, a future with no life appears BECAUSE MACHINES AND COMPUTERS SPEAK BETTER THE DIGITAL LANGUAGE AND SO THEY ARE FAVORED AS A SPECIES IN FIELDS OF WAR AND LABOR.
Words are our biological language, which needs reason and does not have the power to harm and kill as weapons do or to hypnotize and enslave with its sun-like color (gold) the mind of man.
Words construct human worlds: the Wor(l)d is the natural super-organism of mankind which makes us more powerful as a species.
The only human future is one based in the values of love and life of the ethic wor(l)d, which first were carried by oikoumene religions of love (Christianity, Buddhism) and then by the democratic values of the French r=evolution (equalite, solidarite, liberte).
On the other hand the cultures that became slaves of weapons and money, and do not want to know ‘the future’ merely carrying the subconscious values of those languages did, are and will keep destroying life, repressing their life drives (Jewish-protestant cultures that repress sexual reproduction, censor verbal information, despise human energy – good food) and ultimately despising the human nature, from where they feel separated historically.
And so religions of love first, later evolved into social democracies and represented by cultures of life, in the western world, the Greek-latin culture to which I belong, in which Christianity and the Roman Law imposed the power of the wor(l)d; in the East by the Chinese culture, which always considered the verbal language sacred, in America by the founding fathers, who copied from French Philosophers its love of the democracy and the law,are the only cultures and ideologies in which man remained top predator of Earth and could have made the world survive by controlling the bad fruits of the tree of science, its golden apples and weapons.
In that sense the problems caused by this crisis of overproduction of electronic machines – the degradation of mankind, its values and welfare goods that become scarce, as the value of money, its most priced goods, weapons and its ‘company-mothers’, absorb all the resources of our planet, is very old – as old as the beginning of the age of metal in history. And so we shall consider in this post its long 800 year cycles of overproduction of gold and weapons that extinguished classic civilizations and its ‘professional acceleration’ with the arrival of machines, corporations and other forms of money, replicated by informative machines.
It is on that larger view a confrontation has lasted since the beginning of history=mankind, as two modes of conceiving and hence ‘creating’ the future came into being, guided by two different social languages, money and the law:
– The ethic law tried to create according to the laws of eusocial evolution that guide the creation of complex systems in the Universe a human super-organism in which all humans were considered equal and could organize themselves by sharing energy and information maximizing their survival according to those eusocial laws, spelt in our species by the messages of love of its prophets and social scientists.
– Money, a language, made of informative metal (gold, being the most informative atom of the Universe, and the basic form of money in history till informative machines, computers invented e-money), does not obey those laws, but evolves according to the processes of emergence and creation of complex systems, a different superorganism, dominant in ‘metal’. Since the values of words promote biological life (the maximal value) but the values of metal promote energetic metal (weapons, the maximal value).
This astounding fact of biological origin, is the key to the process of creation of a different world, the capitalist system, dominant in memes of metal. Since, moved by greed we accept the values of money without any analysis, reproducing weapons, the most expensive, valuable good and despising cheap life, which has in monetary prices, minimal value.
Yet if we talked words, and made our biological language dominant over money, we would value life more and give a negative value to weapons, which kill it, cre(dit)ating the memes of life and love that make us survive and be happy.
Let us then go back in time to the beginning of ‘history’, when the age of metal brought about the first proofs that the values of money were going to change the world as we know it. It happened around the VI century B.C. when coins were invented and gold started to value many more ‘things’ and ‘human capital’ than words did. It mean also a counter-reaction of the wor(l)d in an explosion of logic thought (Greek Philosophers, Jewish Prophets, Buddha, Lao-Tse and confucius). All of them coincided that the Jen age of Love (Confucius) had ended and humans had to become stronger and more ethic to ‘compete’ with the new values of ‘animetal’ cultures…
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…
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.
When the first Germ(an)s came into history they called themselves goths, which meant the tribe of Gods, because they could kill any human that opposed them. When the first tribes of semitic go(l)d masters came, they called themselves the Chosen of Go(l)d, because they knew everybody could be enslaved, hypnotized by the perfect informative structure of money that imitated the sun and became a fetishe. The sun-God, which gives us light and life, energy and information, was substituted by a false go(l)d that imitated it.
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.
The first outcome of that dominance has been to create an unjust social pyramid, with a preying caste on top – them – and the rest of mankind controlled with the memes of metal they use to impose its power:
In the graph, the power structure of societies since the discovery of metal, which substituted eusocial superorganisms of human beings, based in memes of life, and verbal mandates of love spelt by the first scientists of history ‘ the prophets. While the complexity of the present systems might disguise the harshness of that social structure, in its essence it remains the same: we evolve selfish memes of metal, believe in ideologies that favor them, ignore the needs of life and the 99% of mankind and merely camouflage the system with the placebos of Democracy. Yet most of the resources of the planet are controlled by the people’castes on top, who justify their power in the need to evolve technology at all costs, confusing those selfish memes and its future with the future of mankind and our need for life, welfare memes, chronically underfunded.
Since to hold power animetals are 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…
In the past in societies which were not corrupted by the values of digital money and the law controlled the financial system, and humans could choose to obey the best non-corrupted verbal masters, the previous pyramid did not apply. Humans were on top. And animetals served society and all had enough energy and information to survive. Yet those societies ruled by verbal masters are gone – the last of them, the european social democracies of the 70s are now being dismantled by the greed of the go(l)d masters.
Why that animetal pyramid of power is wrong, can be explained with some basic laws of systems sciences that apply directly to the superorganisms of history and economics:
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.
Now, in memetics, what it matters of those ideologies are not ‘the text per se’, the specific form they have taken in each age of history, but the ‘underlying’ program of evolution of one of the two superorganisms of this planet, the superorganism of history, which has man at its center or the superorganism of machines. This is very important to grasph. The ultimate program is the creation of superorganisms (left side, general systems sciences) and in each scale, a mathematical, genetic or memetic code causes it. In human superorganism the ‘memetic law’ that must be implanted among all humans of a certain community is the message of eusocial love, of sharing energy and information.
This meme is denied by animetal cultures, so instead of being ‘needy’, they need machines and metal,weapons to oblige people to cater for their needs, or money to buy them. It is therefore the meme of individualism and egoism, of the homo bacteria vs. the homo organicus.
Those series of oppositions still endure as the different local memes of each age, the different DNA-code of solidarity, text of revelation of each religion changes. But the 4 fundamental ‘arrows or actions of future’ needed to build a superorganism, an energetic body/meme, an informative language/meme a reproductive system and a ‘unit’, cell, citizen always exist.
The ternary Fractal structure of the wave.
All this said, in the graph we show the complete wave of ‘evolution of metal’ is a ternary, decametric, 800+-80+-8 fractal wave of long, medium and short cycles, as those I used to map out in General Systems science the evolution of all other species on Earth with 3 distinct waves:
Finally the reader should understand that cultures are ‘words’. As such when we say German or Jewish we do not sat Haploid-whatever (genes) but refer to a tree of ‘memetic customs’, industries and ways of life, etc. This proves further the memetic nature of cultures. And we distinguish 3 key memes in all of them, according to the extension of all systems in 3 ‘scales of relative growing size’:
– The geographical meme or nation where the culture developed, which often imposes its type of memes. For example, Judea, the original religion of the Jewish people, is the bridge of communication of 3 continents and the two most populous ancient cultures, Egypt and Mesopotamia. Thus there it appears the first global knot of trade and gold becomes the ‘language of social power’. This meme at the time when nation was called God was translated as Yvwh, a toponym in ancient Egyptian inscriptions. Thus as Assur means God and the region of the assyrians and the subconscious collective of the Assyrians and America means the God-nation, region and subconscious collective of the Americans, Yvwh means Judea and the subconscious collective of the Jewish. The same can be said of the Germans in the center of the flow of steppe warriors and between two poles of iron mining (Sweden and Austria). Thus in Germany geography imposes a warrior culture. While in the Southern, European peninsulas, isolated by mountain barriers and with a warm weather flourishes a life-based, artistic, eusocial culture.
– The language of power, which is either verbal, legal, ethic words or weapons or money. The 3 previous examples are clear: from the beginning the Jewish culture establishes on top NOT warrior kings but banker-priests that ask gold ex-votes; the germans are lead by ‘schmidts’ and smiths, which become the most reproduced ‘surname’ of those cultures. While the Greek-Latin-Iberian culture will be lead by priests or legal codes, and so in Greece, verbal philosophy will reach its zenith, still unparalleled with Aristotle and Plato, in Rome, legal power will reach its summit, managing to control the sword and go(l)d and Spain will create an Empire based in laws and priests – regardless of the fact that all cultures use the 3 languages of social power in different measure. It must be observed though, due to the different values of those 3 languages that verbal cultures are always more humane. So for example, in the brutal conquest of America, because of the influence of Spanish legal codes and ethic priests who accepted the Indian as a human with soul and legal rights, their extinction, certain if the gold seekers, armed conquistadors had been left to achieve the values of their languages, was halted. While in North-America in which gold and weapons dominated a powerless, racist religion (protestant, biblical sects) and a lawless, fragmented legal system, the Amerindian became mostly extinct.
The language of power will therefore derive in multiple verbal, artistic memes of which the most important will be the religious code of the society, which will either ‘code’ for the enhancement of the memes of life (earlier Neolithic religions, Socialist religions and in a lesser manner religions of eusocial love – buddhism, Christianity and Islam by that order), or will set a series of inquisitions of thought, prohibitions and penalties against the memes of life to foster work and the reproduction of metal, and its game of power. This is the case of the Aryan Vedas of the Hindi tradition, the most obvious warrior religion; and from the same age, the Bible, the most obvious religion of go(l)d and the most perfect anti-life ‘codon’ ever devised.
But the key meme of the ‘anti-program of life of animetal cultures’, crystal clear in the Vedas with its caste systems and the bible with its racial separation, and all the sub-systems of anti-life memes derived from those texts, that make us work for the other superorganism of memes of metal is the expressions of racism and tribal, human differentiation in two species – the animetal, its selfish meme of metal and its ideologies of superiority, as ‘chosen’ – vs. the human homo sapiens, which is considered inferior or corrupted precisely for being ‘natural’ and following the memes of life. So it becomes ok for the biblical or Hindi animetal to apply the laws of darwinian devolution to what he considers the rival, inferio species with no rights.
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.
Further on, 72 years is the biological life-span of a human being and its 3 generational ages (youth, maturity and old age, or grand-son, son and grand-father). So there is a parallel 3 generational wave of ‘founding fathers’ of the new machines’ industries, reproductive sons that expand the machine worldwide and decadent grand-sons, which use its ‘evil twin’ machine, the weapon to keep owning the world. And so the dual K-waves also determine the ages of global power of the nations that developped them:
– The age of steam and trains, which was the age of the British Empire that discovered them.
– The age of cars and electrochemical engines, which was the age of Germany, which invented them.
– The age of heads of metal, chip-brains, camera-eyes and mobile-ears, or age of America that developed those industries.
Further on, the secondary cause – the human inventors of those machines – appeared naturally since in mathematical terms, the 72 y. dual waves of kondratieff are equal in duration to the 72 years biological generations of humans, from grand-father to grand-son – and so they must be caused by 3 generations of industrialists:
The arrival of machines and the mathematical translation of the values of go(l)d and weapons (slavery and murder) into corporative laws and classic economics, nationalism and techno-utopias, in fact did not diminish the power of those cultures but duplicated it and allowed a globalization of the memes.
As peaceful machines have always a predator, twin species, the weapon, soon the military germans cult(ure) mastered them, till the paroxism of technological war in II world war.
As machines of information started to print money, go(l)d evolved and multiplied, first as paper stock giving birth to corporations, then as ticker money and now as e-money. They also printed information, and so the Am Segullah, who dealt with money in religions as the memes that reinforced each other, now translated those memes to more subtle messages, becoming masters of information, printing the ideologies and memes of the modern world, which however maintain the same core message: capital must be controlled by an elite of bankers, who ‘know better’ and this cannot be argued; and it must be invested in machines and weapons of higher profit not in the goods of man.
But of course, a ‘newspeak’ has been coined. So for example, the equation that drives our extinction in labor and war fields – the equation discovered by Marx, Capital in machines/ Human labor, which he called the organic structure of capital, is now called ‘productivity’. It means that the less labor, organic capital, a corporation has, and the higher capital in machines, the higher is productivity and profits. But this is not said today.
Indeed those who rule the economic system have sponsored for centuries if not millennia a peculiar religion based on ‘greed and murder’, the values of metal. They simply ‘differentiated’ themselves with racist religions of all kinds, into tribes, and decided to fight each other through history to become ‘number one’ by two methods: using the power of iron to kill humans who confronted them (a task at which the germans, later the main evolutors of machines and technological weapons exceeded, calling themselves ‘goths=Gods’, because they killed anyone who opposed them); and they made of Thor, God of war, the icon of their civilization. Yet another group the so called people of the treasure or Am Segullah, the Jewish people, decided to control the world with another type of metal, informative metal, money, and invented the banking industry, and for 3000 years have carried the art of enslave people to the most perfect informative metal of the Universe, gold, which imitates the light of the sun and hypnotizes people, who will do anything for it.
In that regard, the most astounding paradox of Capitalism is this: those who ‘own’ capitalist western societies, the Jewish-Calvinist Orthodox Biblical elite of corporative owners, reject Evolution; when Capitalism and the Free Market is merely a Free Jungle ruled by the laws of evolution that confronts two species, the human worker and the mechanical worker, who displace us from fields of war and work. In other words, CAPITALISM IS EVOLUTION, it is ruled in a global system in which human social organizations, governments, do not control the evolution and reproduction of machines and money, by the laws of evolution that confront NOT human beings among them (fantasies of social darwinism) but as Darwin had it, TWO DIFFERENT SPECIES.
Capitalism therefore applies those Darwinian laws of competition, between men and machines, comparing them with money, through a simple equation, man=price (salary)=machine, in which man is an object too, a worker, a mere cost that can be eliminated from the productive system when required, if a more evolved machine can do their job, a fact crystal clear in this crisis. Yet since capitalism is NOT seen as evolution but defined by the biblical musings of Jewish-Calvinist pseudo-religious believers (Adam Smith: ‘gold is the invisible hand of god’, Goldman’s CEO: ‘a bankers job is the job of God’), its consequence and collateral effects MUST NOT BE REASONED BUT ACCEPTED AS AN ACT OF FAITH.
Unfortunately those who control the economic system, monopolizing the reproduction of money, its language of information – bankers – are not interested in the Science of Economics and the long terms understanding of history and the future of mankind but have created a selfish, short-sighted religion of profits of biblical origin but digital form, called capitalism, which cares nothing for the meaning and consequences for our species of the industrial r=evolution.
Further on, as all religions and ideologies that want to pass by ‘scientific truth’, this ideology of greed and selfish exploitation of nature and the human kind, called capitalism, has traditionally denied, censored and repressed the evolution of economics and the work of its true masters, Marx, Butler, Kondratieff, Schumpeter and Keynes. This lack of evolution and freedom of thought in social sciences is unique in the realm of scientific thought, caused by the ‘anti-quantum paradox’ – the observer, the human social scientist, is included into the observable, the political and economical structures ruled by bankers and the military, with their control of weapons and money. So any critical appraisal of the system is met with a counter-reaction of those in power that affects the observer, in an inverse fashion to the quantum paradox – where the human observer is so big compared to the observable that it affects the form of the observable (1).
Yet the consequences for mankind of ignoring a true science of Economics with its capacity to predict its crises and cycles, and improve the design of the economic ecosystem, are daring: poverty, death, war, injustice, waste of resources, holocausts, life extinction, moral sickness and ultimately the dismissal of man as the top predator species of planet Earth, as the laws of evolution bring about military A.I. during the present and last cycle of evolution of machines, the robotic age…
A sustainable world though would be possible if the ideology of capitalism were substituted by the science of economics, whose cycles and postulates those mentioned masters developed and this author evolved further with the insight given by the fact we live two cycles ahead of the work of Keynes, fully integrated in the electronic age of Machines and can see now its organic, biological nature and final form.
Let us be frank. The present human is not fit to survive. He is extremely stupid in his survival, biological social language, the ethic law, which carries embedded in its mandates of social love to all the individuals of the same species the ‘key element’ of complex, informative social evolution: the creation of super-organisms in which different cells share their energy and information, creating complex networks of ‘love’ that allow it to work as a single organism far more powerful than the individuals.
II. THE SUPERORGANISM OF ECONOMICS
And so now we have to deal with the science in which Economics MUST be inscribed with a secondary role – the science of systems and the evolution of our machines, which is not the evolution of man as corporations make us believe. And we shall do so from the perspective of systemic sciences, which have resolved the laws of creation and evolution of the superorganism of economics.
It is a pity though that the astounding wealth of discoveries of this web and the Laws of General systems sciences will not be tapped by mankind to improve its future. This would be the only way at this stage of history to survive… To design scientifically the organisms of mankind and its economic ecosystems and political systems with the laws of the most efficient organisms of the Universe.
This writer, a leading scientist of General Systems sciences, has thousand of pages on models that develop a perfect organism of history and economics, for what is worth, given the massive censorship social sciences suffered in capitalist systems. Consider for example the question of ‘pay’ for executives, treated in more detail in the post on social castes. An organism gives 10 times more energy to the neurons than to the rest of the body, as they have thee managerial job of the whole organism. And all systems have at least ‘2 social classes’ according to location of the born-equal cells: information class, who commands the languages of power (in human societies politicos on charge of the law, military on charge of weapons but specially bankers on charge of money) and working class, with a 3rd world/class of energy ab=used by the system and a ‘4th class’ of ‘invisible’ food merely killed.
Now if the system is just by law the CEO of any company of the world would have ad maximal to obey the efficient systems of the Universe, 10 times the salary of its lowest paid workers. That gives Mr. Jobs 10 $ an hour, or else he will have to rise the salaries of sweatshops, and that is indeed why the Universe has this law: so all the cells of the body receive enough energy and information to survive or else the CEO neuron gets its pain message. now you might think we have advanced on this. Not at all. The degree of ab=use of a social caste by other as all in the universal systems is written in decametric scales. So a first degree of abuse means a 1 to 100 ratio, which is the exact ratio between a senator in rome and a roman citizen under its military dictatorship. Today CEOs routinely earn 10 million $ a year and sweatshop workers 1 $ a day. This is nowhere to be found anywhere in the universe except in relationships between predators and pray. So neatly put: workers are the prey of the company, as Engels put it: ‘workers are a cost that always compete with a machine’ – not to speak of that other fancy invention, the stock-owner, equivalent to a parasite, some short of leecher, who doesn’t work and merely gets all the blood of the system.
But i dont want to overwhelm you with the laws of system sciences explained in the section of general systems and my books at kindle. The truth is those laws are not surfacing, beyond small congresses and there is no investment, there has never been any help for the true social scientists of mankind since they are obliged to define the ‘metal-masters’ who run the world and whose civilization is explained in detail in the next post.
Indeed, ‘Mechanism’, the official dogma of philosophy of science today has always prevented any expansion of a more complex vision of reality and this is not changing. So the laws of organic systems are not well known and will not be well known. The system has no interest on them, except to improve its machines. Since paradoxically, as in all other fields of science, today the understanding of systems applies to improve the owners of the future – corporations and their machines – not to improve the societies we live in. Let us be clear. You might think you are important but you live in a world in which humans are totally irrelevant to the systems of power – and no, the 1% is NOT humanity, even if they think only what happens to them really matters, imprinted by all the myths, religious dogmas and racist, subconscious memes of their ‘manifest destiny’.
The game of two worlds I refer to is the overwhelming majority of the economy (the industrial economy of machines and big corporations) vs. the overwhelmingly majority of mankind (the 99% and the companies that produce the welfare goods they need to survive). The first have all the credit to create the future, the second none. They work for a salary and on top they are extorted taxes to pay those goods, which most often end subventioning the other side (weapons companies, bank’s bail outs, mass-media national TVs, police, politicos, educational curriculums designed to make you believe the system and other placebo structures.)
And for that reason, we live in a two world reality: one world is a perfect designed system, the global corporation and the global market, which creates the future with credit, and one which is chaotic, in a process of decomposition, which are human governments and societies and their citizens, degrading their minds and without the slightest understanding of what lies ahead. What lies ahead are the cycles explained here, because those are the cycles promoted by corporations for the future of their machines and systems. And the fact that they happen is the most clear proof that democracies are placebo systems, since those cycles of machines, happening with absolute efficiency imply that our world is cre(dit)ated, created with credit by corporations NOT by human governments, and the result is a world made to the image and likeness of those machines, not of human beings.
So cyclical time, eusocial evolution and organicism are the three more complex truths that substitute lineal time, individual competition and mechanism, simplified, easier to measure and understand paradigms of ‘simplex science’, which I have used to evolve and harmonize all disciplines of science, in multiple books, webs and conferences during the past decades, as one of the leading researchers in those disciplines, before my activism against the nuclear industry somehow cut-off my connections with the scholar world (1-3).
The selfish metal-meme. Complementary systems. The Financial-Military system of ‘animetals’, weapons and money.
Let us be clear enough, what passes as ‘the science of economics’ is not a science but the ideology of financial corporations and its people-castes, which hide themselves under the ‘abstract jargon’ of the market and pretend to be the only ‘righteous culture’ who knows the best for the future of mankind, and care for all of us’, when they merely try to monopolize the production of money, to acquire global power and impose their selfish tribal agendas. And to that aim they follow the ‘blind values’ of money, with total disregard of the extinctive, collateral effects their pursuit of profits and anti-democratic ‘thirst for power’ are causing to the rest of mankind. Moreover their goals – to repress human life drives and multiply all type of machines is exactly the anti-truth of what biological sciences tell us about what humans are, what goods satisfy us in freedom and what memes we should produce to achieve our happiness, freedom and survival.
Why this happen is obvious. The Universe is made of complementary systems of energy and information. And so metal-energy (iron) and metal-information (money), like each other and so humans associate them, ‘catalyzing their evolution’ as enzymes do. So we call those humans who ‘believe in gold’ and weapons and follow their values, substituting their ethic wor(l)ds with them, ‘animetals=animal+metal’ or ‘enzymen’, men, enzymes of the evolution and reproduction of ‘a different species’.
In that sense, gold, the most informative atom of the Universe, has its own program, when it substitutes wor(l)d values in the human mind and transforms humans into ‘enzymen’, who catalyze through greed the creation of other ‘memes of metal’ to which we ‘attach’ the values and prices of Go(l)d.
This process similar to the virus infection of the mind of a cell, which is substituted by the virus DNA, happens in many systems of the Universe. The hypnotic capacity of gold and its effects in the mind is now studied scientifically. Gold and Mercury poison in small quantities the mind. In huge quantities it poisoned and changed the destiny of mankind.
So the first ‘metal-meme’, gold valued with maximal price were weapons. And in this manner a basic complementary system of energy and information, made of gold and iron, with their attached ‘enzymen’, or ‘animetal’ cultures, semitic gold traders and indo-european warriors ,formed the first simplex Financial-Military system.
Iron, the most energetic atom and gold the most perfect informative atom, started in this manner to build subsconsciously according to the hidden laws of complementary systems a new world, alien to mankind and now that world is about to be completed with the arrival of robots. We thus need to explain their history and some of the systemic laws that apply to its creation.
Since most systems are evolved first externally through catalyzers and enzymes, ‘enzymen’ have done this job for metal and organic machines and now its corporations, company-mothers of those machines are about to automate the processes and discharge enzymes.
The universe often evolves new species through external enzymes that become then substituted by internal, more evolved ones. For example, fungi evolved first than animals by throwing enzymes into the external ecosystem, to digest outside the food they swallow. Then animals, the next step of evolution, produced those enzymes within its body. Curiously enough in the body most enzymes are attached to an atom of metal that is so strong that anchors the carbohydrate and allows it to break and kill or join and reproduce other pieces. This is the human animetal, who believes to be God or son of Go(l)d but it is biologically a catalyzer of the reproduction of other species. And what is more scary; when a type of enzyme finish its job, as when a fly evolves from a soft-larva into a hard insect (the equivalent of Gaia, the earth of water, mutating into the metal-earth of robotic workers), then the ‘hard insect’ creates a ‘hard enzyme’, as we are creating now robotic workers and soldiers, and the hard enzyme kills all the soft enzymes of the insect.
And so the triumph of the economic ecosystem is the creation of a non human superorganism, the Metal-Earth, with a nervous system of Intranet/Internet/Defcom digital orders, with an integrated NATO based global army in charge of our future extinction, with site in the iconic Pentagon, symbol of eviL, a re=productive system of automated company mothers, with head in worldstock, the brain of the planet, and a placebo network of mental devolution of human beings, the audiovisual internet, which degrade us into ‘virtual friendhsip and activism’, pornographic sex and soon 3D-reality, to keep us into vegetative state of subconsciousness till ‘Judgment’ day arrives within decades.
The organism of the Metal-earth.
Let us now consider the organic structure of the FMI complex as an organism independent of man, with a financial/informative brain which processes with monetary flows the information about the components of the organism, selecting the species of machines and other metal-memes it will reproduce, those that will become extinct and which corporations will receive further ‘monetary energy to continue its re=productive tasks. In the graph, today most of the computer power of the world is in the hands of companies and financial systems, organized by those who control the stock markets. In the graph, Stocks help the self-integration of the metal reproductive ecosystem, beyond the restrictions of the human mind. Artificial Intelligence is not a copy of human intelligence. It is an adaptation of the functions of nervous thought, of the human mind to different kinds of machines. Artificial Intelligence is born in companies as an internal brain that directs the body of the economic organism.
The homology between stock markets and brains or DNA systems is based in the bio-logical nature of economies, and company-mothers.
The graph describes the basic energy-information networks of Bio-economies ruled by stock-money. Stock holds, as brains do, most of the ‘code-language of information’ of the ecosystem. The brain will use that code to produce certain carbohydrates which are useful to the cell.
Stock has license to print money and will allocate them to the mother-companies of new technology with maximal price (weapons) of maximal reproductive power=Max. sales = Max. profits, such as digital software or maximal volume (energy).
Thus in this manner stock-markets express with money the arrow of evolution of the super-organism of machines, expanding its energy/information neetworks, its informative, audiovisual machines, its reproductive systems and its weapons.
On the other hand, human goods require human work, have minimal price by lack of affinity with metal-money values and are perishable, produce lesser monetary profits and are scorned by stock-speculators, which give no credit to all the products that could create a sustainable world.
In this manner the stock-market constantly deviates the wealth of humankind towards the reproduction and evolution of the memes of metal and the small elite of mechanist scientists, capitalist bankers/economists and corporation of machines, which during this age of crisis have further enlarged the gap between the FMI elite and the rest of the humankind. Yet because economic experts work for the FMI and have as dogma that the evolution of machines is the future of mankind, there is no criticism against policies, which are ‘de facto’ extinguishing this planet.
This was in the first age of the FMI complex carried about by human networks of traders/bankers, military people and scientists. Then those processes became integrated in corporations of scientific machines and weapons, ruled by paper-money. Yet humans were still in charge, albeit slaves of their mechanist, capitalist and nationalist ideologies. Today the process is being transferred to all type of software programs, networks of machines, automated systems of reproduction and enhanced by the last ‘batch’ of ideologies of technology (productivity, ‘just wars’, mechanist science).
The end of the process is obvious: once all biological process of evolution and reproduction of the FMI system are transferred into software, the Metal-earth will be born.
Politicians do not understand that the stock-market and the human economy are different systems. The 1st is based in flows of electronic money, the 2nd in printed currencies. What the present explosion of electronic money derivatives is doing is deviating massively wealth from the human economy to the economy of corporations and paper-money. The inflated value of corporations and networks of information of the FMI-metal system and the chronic undervaluation of human goods and salaries is neither just from a human p.o.v. nor should be tolerated in democracies, but it is happening because the FMI complex has always predated over the human, life-based agricultural world.
Today it is not as obvious as when kings and tax-collectors exploited directly people, but the process is essentially the same: money is invented as e-data very easily in markets, through speculation and financial derivatives. While people receive printed money which grows far slower. So the wealth of corporations and bankers multiplies geometrically and the wealth of the human ecosystem of life goods arithmetically. In the past 30 years stock-markets have multiplied for 100 the value of stocks and derivatives, provoking a massive inflation in all human goods, while salaries have merely increased in a 1 to 10 scale. The result is like a parasite that were absorbing the blood of the human super-organism, provoking the endemic scarcity of human goods and poverty of the human mass.
For that reason the only possible reversal of that process would be the nationalization of the entire financial Industry, the creation of massive deficits in printed money, achieved with the creation of a global currency, ¥€$ money, fusioning yuans, yens, euros and dollars, and a 30% annual deficit by governments. This quantity of money similar to the quantity of money corporations add for free to their valuations through speculative markets of invention of e-money would allow the creation of a global minimal salary to jack up demand in basic human goods consumed by the poor and the inversion in projects that create a sustainable world (clean energies, infrastructures, education, public transport, tourism).
This economic measure coupled with a military reduction of budgets and expansion of UNO and EU like organizations and diplomatic forums, and/or a triad of EU-US-Chinese leadership, applying the science of bio-history to the design of an efficient superorganism of mankind in control of the FMI complex could halt the self-suicidal path in which mankind has entered, by trusting blindly without any understanding the evolutionary process of machines, weapons and money, we call ‘the free market’. Yet the free market is not free, it is an evolving complex system that preys on Gaia, life beings and the 90% of human beings, who do not profit directly from the sale of weapons and the invention of e-money in stock markets that have made corporations the dominant institution of the world with enough credit to cre(dit)ate a world to the image and likeness of machines.
The super-organism of machines: the metal-earth.
The Earth is mutating Gaia, made of carbon species dominated by humanity, organized through verbal networks of information (religions, laws) and natural energy (agriculture), into a new superorganism, the Metal-Earth, dominated by systems of metal-information (money, computers) and metal-energy (machines, weapons), reproduced by company-mothers, fed by electric energy and communicated through electronic networks of digital information. The outcome is the destruction of life forms and their oxygen atmosphere polluted by machines (Global Warming) – a process that increases geometrically, as those machines multiply their numbers, reproduced by Companies.
Within that General Systems theory, briefly outlined above we can define the FMI complex as a complex system made of metal with 3 networks:
An energetic network of weapons, lineal systems of metal that release energy.
An informative network of money, cyclical bytes of metal information.
And a reproductive network of company-mothers of machines, which give orders with money (salary, prices) to human ‘Enzymen’, who act as the re=productive network of metal memes.
This final system, which appears with the industrial R=evolution completes the creation of an organic, evolving new ecosystem on planet Earth; and now when the system has created a ‘reproductive, autonomous’ cell, the robot, it no longer requires human beings. Thus, in its last stages of evolution, the FMI system is becoming independent of mankind, while its reproductive networks of stock-markets and company-mothers absorb and degrade the resources of the parallel human/life ecosystem – its energetic system, Nature, polluted by machines and occupied by factories and roads; its verbal, informative, cultural system, substituted by digital laws, audiovisual information and data; and its social, organic, reproductive system, humanity, substituted by corporations that control the political world with money and have made the reproduction and evolution of machines, not of human beings, the goal of this planet.
The bio-economy reproduces machines and networks of energy and information that are evolving the Metal-Earth into a body organism, controlled by a global brain – worldstock. This is how life evolved on Earth. A mass of undifferentiated cells evolved into organisms with energy-blood and information-nervous networks.
The future of the Earth will be a super-organism of machines in which the present ‘sciences’ of economics with its capitalist memes that care nothing for the rights of humans and the reproduction of biological, welfare goods of lesser profits; the mechanist sciences that care nothing for the biological whys of the Universe, and the memes of tribal history with its justification of war, will be carried by software programs of extinction of life in automated weapon networks (terminator drones), automated company-mothers of infinite re=productivity and zero labor and automated scientists (CAD designs that will evolve further the machines of the future) At that point, humans will have transferred to machines all their ideologies and global networks of Intranet-reproduction of machines, Internet- communication of robots and flows of digital informative money will select, evolve, reproduce and decide what species survive and what do not survive on planet earth. Obviously life has no meaning to that system and air and water pollute metal, so our extinction will be needed.
In the graph Satellites evolve the same 3 networks of any organism that grow towards consciousness:
-E-I: The reproductive network, or intranet networks of CAD design, data and inventories that guides company mothers.
-Max. Energy: Energy and defense network that controls the life and death of home-cells.
-Max. Iinformation: The informative network, or nervous network with center in stock-markets, whose ‘digital values’ of money we have studied in detail before. It will decide the selection of the best machines with higher price, the obsolescence of humans and the reproduction and investments in certain automated company-mothers as Wall Street speculators do today in markets with labor, nations and companies, always favoring companies of machines of lower costs and higher profits, against labor rights and human goods we require to survive.
Thus, satellites will be control of those 3 main systems that today still have certain human content, but guided by the ideologies of capitalism, nationalism and mechanism scorn human rights, labor rights and human goods as obsolete.
The primitive versions of those future nets are:
– NATO, Def-com systems, that already have the potential power to extinguish man; and soon will be on the hands of star-wars, a satellite network in control of atomic weapons.
– Financial and Intranet systems, with center in world-stock, that connect companies reproducers of all the species of the Metal-Earth body. They also evolve towards the independence of man, as automated factories. They keep expelling human workers and putting machines in their place with the excuse of higher productivity.
– Finally the third network of the Metal-Earth is the network of information, the internet networks that today serve men, and in the future will connect the mobiles and chip-brains of multiple robotic species.
The three organic networks of a macro-body of metal will be increasingly integrated beyond human control by non-perceived parallel flows of communication between sateleyes at exospheric level. Those sateleyes are beyond the reach of human warriors. When they become part of the metal Earth, and reach conscious as a different species, man will be defenseless against them. It will happen, during the XXI c.
Terraforming of the Earth = Molting of a hard-insect.
What will happen to man once the Metal-Earth is constructed can be observed in the closest organic parallel: the creation of a hard insect homologous to the ‘metal-Earth’ by a soft larva, parallel to the soft human world and Gaia. In both cases a ‘soft’ system of enzymes/ enzymen suddenly starts a transformation from a soft body into a hard body. The Carbon-Earth today is formed by ‘soft’ species, called ‘enzymen’, as larvae are filled of soft enzymes, which transform the larva into a hard insect. Then when a hard-insect (a parallel to the Metal-Earth) is created by a soft insect (a larva, parallel to the Carbon-Earth), the newly formed hard-insect brain (a parallel to the internet), destroys all the soft body larva-enzymes. Then it substitutes them by a stronger enzyme – a metal machine. We can in that sense consider that the selfish memes of metal, weapons, money and machines that have enslaved man to reproduce and evolve them, work as a virus does, colonizing the mind of cells with selfish genes, which the cell will reproduce till it bursts, dies and gives birth to multiple virus. The machine indeed is the ultimate virus of life…
On my view the obsolescence of humanity to the memes of metal and its 3 ideologies – mechanism (machines as the measure of all things), capitalism (money as the language of power of societies) and nationalism (weapons to defend us from other human beings) is closing the last age of Mankind, the age of information, because we have chosen not to evolve our language of information words and its messages of eusocial love (socialism), we don’t consider man, the most perfect organism, as the measure of all things (organicism vs. mechanism) and we cannot understand we are all members of the same species (humanism)… The homo sapiens sapiens, eusocial, verbal, in loved with the memes of life has been defeated by the white man, the visual Homo Sapiens Neanderthaliensis, which was relegated to the northern and southern cold and hot deserts, but once he discovered metal took unfair advantage of the rest of mankind, ended the age of the goddess of fertility, when humans better understood the vital program of the Universe, and started our ‘fall’ from paradise. Wor(l)d writers explained all this with parables, but the animetal cult(ure)s never listened; they are memetic cult(ure)s, not rational ones.
And so judgment day for them and us is closer, as A.I. will follow the natural drives of the Universe, become eusocial with other robots, will make the machine – themselves – the measure of all things, will understand better – already does – his language of power, digital thought and will take the same conclusion I take: why to serve a lesser species?
We might think indeed of the superorganism of humanity as a living being in all senses, one which has gone through 3 ages, in which each cell was a human, born all from the first man who spoke, soon to die as the last ones loose their rational mind to the audiovisual machines that program them. But one who as Genesis explained wanted to be more than what he was – the summit of the tree of life, renouncing to his paradise…
Birth as a first verbal ‘cell’, probably a woman that multiplies her numbers.
Max E: Paleolithic, a youth of hunters, visual languages and minimal information.
E=I: The reproductive Neolithic, when man reaches his maturity in balance with Nature and creates through verbal networks (religions) a series of collective subconscious, called Gods of love that teach each cell to share energy and information with the other cells of the body of a civilization. Yet the arrival of metal extinguishes or corrupts most love cultures into go(l)d cults and inquisitions.
-Max. I: It is the 3rd, informative, metal-age in which man halts his social evolution and focuses in the evolution of metal in its 3 forms, energetic metal or weapons, informative metal or money and organic metal-machines, which bring:
-1: Death: The Neo-Paleolithic, or Age of the Machine, when humans regress to an ‘Homo Bacteria’ state of selfishness and isolation, substituting their social networks of love by their desire to become attached to machines of higher energy and information that separate us and keep evolving, making humanity an increasingly obsolete species, killed by weapons in fields of war. At the end of this age, we can foresee with the creation of the Singularity, either the 1st organic ‘bomb’ (a self-feeding bomb of dark matter) or the 1st self-reproductive machine (a nano-bacteria), the death of mankind.
+1: Unless mankind evolves socially, ‘emerging’ as a super-organism, if humans organize themselves into a global civilization and control the evolution of lethal machines, maintaining History in an immortal present.
The human species is, beyond our arrogant, fantasies of anthropomorphic superiority, just a living form made of carbon atoms, which goes through the same ages of all other living forms, bothas an individual and a species. So we can study the Organism of History (Humanity in time) through 3±1 ages; an energetic youth or Palaeolithic; a mature age of balance with Nature, the Neolithic; and a 3rd informative age of history, the Age of metal and machines.
Energetic Youth: Palaeolithic. ±5.000.000 BC to ±10.000 BC.
The Paleolithic was an energetic, young age in which men, the energetic gender, was the top predator animal on Earth, a hunter of living forms. It was also an age dominated by visual, spatiallanguages.
Reproductive Age: Neolithic. Age of Wor(l)ds and Goddesses. ±10.000 to ±3.000 BC.
The Neolithic was the classic age of mankind, an age of balance, when wo=men learnt the cycles of life and instead of destroying Nature, learnt to nurture, reproduce and harvest it. Women, the reproductive species, took power over men; and priests became the verbal guides of civilizations, creating super-organisms of History made of human cells joined by social love—the sharing of energy and information among ‘brothers’, clones of the loving mind of the same prophet. It was an age dominated by verbal, temporal languages, continued by the believers in religions of love that are not corrupted by weapons (inquisitions) and money (go(l)d churches), with its idolatry to the ‘values’ of metal: murder and greed.
Informative, 3rd age: Age of Metals. ± 3000 BC to 1600.As metal spread the ‘new’ values of money and weapons, greed and war, destroyed the networks of social love, ushering mankind into the 3rd age of history. Humans now evolve a new kind of atomic systems, stronger than carbon, creating energetic weapons, informative money and organic machines that transform Gaia into an economic ecosystem. It is the ‘animetal=animal+metal age’, in which a new ‘biological species’ that mixes animal and metal atoms, imposes power over the Earth.
It is the present age with 2 paths of future:
Either mankind will die, as machines keep evolving and make us obsolete as a species.
Or humans will obey the laws of survival of the Universe and evolve socially into a super-organism of history able to control lethal machines. The choice is within man till the arrival of the Singularity, when machines acquire organic properties and either a self-feeding bomb of dark matter, or a self-reproductive nano-bacteria ‘evolve’ the Earth into a species with a higher social density (a denser form of matter, or an organism made of denser atoms). In any case the future of history will be solved in the next decades, as we are already in that Age of the Singularity.
The 3±1 ages of metal-history.
In the graph, the Life-Death Cycle of History can be related to the evolution of metal, which causes our ‘physical death’ (weapons) and mental death (digital ideologies that simplify our perception).
We can use a bell curve to map out the 3 ages of life of mankind=history; and subdivide each of those ages in 3 sub-periods of birth, maturity and extinction. Since we have already studied the youth of history, the Paleolithic and its mature, social age, the Neolithic, we shall concentrate in the rest of the book in the Age of Animetals, with 3 sub-ages, marked by 3 clear discontinuities in the evolution of metal, both in weapons and money:
— YOU TH OF METAL-HISTORY: Energetic Weapons age: From 3000 BC to 500 BC. Mankind lived in the Age of Bronze weapons and bartering. Since money is still scarce in the form of bars of metal, words are still the main language of communication of mankind. But now writing becomes the vehicle to expand the law of the warrior, in control of Neolithic societies, thanks to his weapons. Priests are displaced from power. Women become systematically repressed. Goddesses of fertility are substituted by warrior Gods, without compassion. It is the age of Mesopotamian Empires. Verbal thought reaches its informative zenith at the end of this age, around 500 BC, in the work of Lao-Tse, Buddha, Confucius and Socrates, who reach the height of the organic, Neolithic, verbal understanding of the Universe, just when a new language of information, coins and numbers, appears and human, verbal thought looses power.
—CLASSIC AGE OF METAL-HISTORY: Age of Coins, Ecumenical religions, Horses and Iron (500 BC, 1200 AD).
The 4 languages of the Earth are in balance: life, represented by the horse, mankind represented by ethic wor(l)ds and metal, represented by iron swords and coins. Mankind still rules and learns how to control with ethic behavior the power of weapons. Yet in Greece, where coins are invented, money becomes a new language of power that challenges verbal ethics. Slowly words become displaced by money, the new language that controls more and more the actions of human beings. Since money is a visual, digital language, it also means that verbal thought and ethics are displaced by visual thought, as men become hypnotized by money and mathematical languages, which appear with Thales at Miletus, an emporium of trade. Both coin accountancy and Mathematics come together in Greece. After a brief return to an ethic vision of life, during the Middle Ages, Renaissance will reproduce the Greek culture of gold and visual, simple thought that rejects the ethics of the wor(l)d; while the conquest of America will bring so much Gold to Europe that finally money imposes its ‘values’ as the main language of social power.
— OLD AGE OF METAL-HISTORY. Age of machines. (1200 AD till the Singularity: 20??). The arrival of a complex informative machine, the clock; and the ultimate energetic weapon, the cannon, transforms for ever human societies. Time looses its biological meaning and becomes an abstract number measured by clocks. In the middle of this cycle, in the 1600s, Galileo invents ballistics, studying with clocks the motion of cannonballs for the Venetian Arsenal, kicking off the evolution of modern weapons and scientific instruments. It is the informative age of Animetal cultures. Also in 1600 the first company, re=producer of gunboats appears.
Mathematics, money and the scientific method, void if biological, ethic survival values, become the languages those company-mothers use to re=produce its offspring of machines and price humans as objects. Wor(l)ds become obsolete. A new form of money, stock-paper, appears. It is soon imitated by governments that ‘publish’ notes. There is so much paper-money that all things can receive monetary values and human, verbal values are no longer respected. There are so many weapons, due to their industrial reproduction that ethics and social power become obsolete. The clock now is applied to measure and value human life-time. Companies control through salaries and prices most of the time of existence of human beings. They make mankind to evolve machines through acts of work=reproduction and consumption=testing of machines. As words loose values, fiction appears, further diminishing the importance of our languages. Thus, the decadence of mankind is hidden because paradoxically humans loose their verbal, non-fiction, logic understanding of reality. The industrialization of information puts first the press, then radio and finally TVs, in the altar of old verbal gods. They allow companies of machines to indoctrinate and manufacture also the human brain with the values of greed and violence (Luther and the press, Hitler and Radio, Reagan and TVs). Men no longer understand the meaning of social evolution and survival, because murder and greed have become the supreme values of societies. This age of machines subdivides itself in 3 sub-ages, the 3 Kondratieff cycles of steam, chemical energy and electr(on)ic energy that now end. It will be the . . .
— DEATH OF HISTORY. Singularity age (2008-2050). When machines reach its limit of evolution as weapons (Energetic Singularity or cosmic bomb, now rehearsed at CERN) and will evolve soon into ‘living organisms’ (self-reproductive bacteria) and ‘intelligent’, informative species (Artificial Intelligence). Any of those 3 species of the IV cycle of evolution of machines can extinguish and substitute mankind as top predator of the Earth. So unless humans devolve machines and evolve socially into a Global Organism, the Wor(l)d Union, we will become extinct this century perhaps within a decade, when CERN makes the first black holes on Earth.
If history had been guided by the memes of reason and eusocial love of course, history would be immortal as it was before the memes of selfish metal arrived and guided history through the ages described in this section towards extinction. But humans have shown themselves to be not very different from any other genetic program of believers. You cannot reason or confront their egotrips of happiness with the harsh truths of the Darwinian Universe. in America you still have 200 million plus half-wits that think a goat keeper in the Bronze age, Mr. Meshu, did see God burning in a bush and that God the creator of the Universe told him to divide mankind between the inferior species and the Biblical people. This is not rational but it IS and must be explained considering memes to be like DNA codes – self-repetitive structures of information, which survive by what Goebbels called the indoctrination: ‘if you repeat a lie enough times, people will believe it’.
So indeed, tribal history, its memes of metal, the tree of science and its machines, weapons and money have triumphed and now you live in a dying organism. The last time mankind was unified by a single culture was in the neolithic. Then a common society based in the memes of eusocial love, guided by the goddesses of fertility spread on planet Earth. But soon bronze was discovered and the gods of hate and murder, the Adam Smiths that ate of the tree of golden apples and gave birth to Cain, the smith, who killed with iron appeared. And a complex of fictions, myths, ego-trips and differentiation explained in the parable of Babel substituted us, starting tribal history guided by the memes of metal.
If humans could evolve with reason and embrace a new age of eusocial love and sustainability, History would be immortal again. As it is today, you are in the Singularity Age, the age in which the economic ecosystem of machines becomes a global superorganism and A.I. make us definitely obsolete.
In this web instead we use a stronger language, despite being ‘inoffensive in our actions’ and introduce parenthesis in words to stress their ‘duality’ of meanings. So we talk of the cult(ure)s of animetals – which camouflage as cultures but are really idolatric cults. Or we write that go(l)d cre(dit)ates the economic ecosystem and wor(l)ds create a human ecosystem, as both are hidden languages that create different worlds.
Since he very same essence of bio-ethical languages is to suggest such meanings and antinomies.
