THE SUPERORGANISMS of HISTORY IN TIME AND SPACE: MANKIND
∆ST isomorphisms of the world (Human Superorganism).
History and economics are socio-biological sciences, as we are living beings, and machines are organs of metal we evolve with the same morphologic and biologic laws of all other human beings.
SO WE can study the human super-organism…
0 isomorphism; art, mind of civilisations.
THE COLLECTIVE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND OF MANKIND, THE I>EYE (SPE-ART)> Wor(l)d (tif), creates the ST-WORLD, THE PRESENT REALITY OF SUCH SUPEORGANISM WITH THE 10 ISOMORPHISMS OF THE UNIVERSE AND ALL ITS SPACE-TIME BEINGS:
0th isomorphism: MONAD:O-Point x ∞ World = Constant mind Mapping.
“Human aesthetics correspond to human proportions, human ethics to the laws of social love, which translate to the Wor(l)d languages the biological laws of Eusocial evolution that define the survival of species”
The mind of the super-organisms of history.
The mind of any superorganism of history are the mind memes, neuronal networks that memorize and learn superstructures of ideas that motivate humans to act and replicate a certain superorganism of history, either a nation or a civilization based in metal or life meme, often both. This trove of instruments and ideologies that make us replicate it, becomes extrenmely complex during the industrial revolution as the forms to replicate ideas, ideologies, instruments and other memes multiply and diversify. In that sense, we shall reduce the concept of culture to the human or biological memes that stream out of the human mind, as opposed to instruments made with materials alien to our mind. In plain sense, that higher mind would be made of our natural time-language of verbal words and our visual eyes, expressed in plastic arts. Literature and painting, legal words and housing, and similar ‘natural goods’ form the skeleton of such life-based cultures.
While verbal art, as the mind of civilisations is far more important,
Yet as we create the metal-earth, the superorganisms of metal and machines that will soon substitute us, we have transfered the forms of ‘life’ into machines and that has influenced enormously art, even art based in human forms which tend to degenerate into simpler forms of iron and gold. In that regard the concept of art and culture has spread beyond the limits of a life-based civilization, essentially all before the XVIII century, when even in economy the ‘physiocrats considered the goods of the land the wealth of nations.
What is art? The visual mind of history.
Today the concept of art has expanded well beyond the classic meaning of art in history, which will be the concept used in this pages, that relates art and bio-history. This extension of the classic concept of art has happened mainly because today art works are basically products on sale, and so they have acquired values and definitions proper of the economic world, very different from the spiritual definitions that were used to describe art, when it was not considered a market-product, but the fundamental form of knowledge of mankind. Hence a “sacred” endeavor. Since knowledge was considered to be the highest quality of man, the quality which connected us with “God” and his laws of universal creation (either a personal being, as in most western religions, or an impersonal principle as in science and Eastern philosophies).
This second definition is what interests us here: art is a form of knowledge related to the more complex senses of the human mind, the word and the sight. If we define the human mind as a dual system of perception based on the senses of sight and sound perception, we could sum up our mental essence in a single sentence:
I think words and I see images therefore I am a human mind.
A work of artistic knowledge could then be defined as a form of sound perception (literary art, music) or visual perception (architecture, sculpture, painting), translated from the mind into an external medium. However since the process of creation of words and images by the human mind is constant, art was considered to be only those superior acts of mental perception that “evolved” the human mind, beyond its natural level of perception and creativity.
We only perceive a partial map of the Universe
Your mind creates constantly the reality you perceive. Our mind is not the real Universe, but the sounds and images we collect from it. To differentiate both we will call the vision of the Universe that humans have, thanks to their senses and minds, the “wor[l]d”. A World is a Mental world constructed observing the Universe with a language of time, n the case of man, Words, and a language of space, in the case of man, images. The mental world of man, is different from the mental world of other species which do not use words to explain temporally reality. For example machines use numbers to explain reality, dogs seems to use smells, as ants do… The Universe is the total reality, the world is the linguistic mirror that a mind of any perceptive species use to describe reality. To differentiate all those other maps of realities, made with smells such as those of dogs or ants, from the world made by man with words, and eyes, we call the World of Man, the Wor[l]d (world=word). Since it is a World in which our temporal perception of change, and the laws of survival and extinction that cause such change, takes place through words, that value reality.
I think therefore I am, define essentially man and only man as a word-speaking species Temporal words, are the particular linguistic mind of mankind. We could say that all humans are artists of the Wor[l]d, since all humans see and understand with words the Universe. What an artist does, however, is to go beyond that common wor[l]d, the biological wor[l]d of our senses, to stretch the limits of perception of human words and sight. Art in such a classic sense, adopted here, is the creation and evolution of the human mind made of images and verbal thought. I see and think therefore I am defines Man. I see more, I think more therefore I am an artist defines an artist as a more complex human mind.
That perception is evolved by the artist’s imagination into new forms, which return from the mind into reality in the shape of an artistic form, a “Work of Art”. A new verbal or visual form, becomes “real”, thanks to the use of certain materials, able to conform easily to the will and imagination of the artist, to become a work of art. Wood, stone, paint, metal, paper, allow the forms the artist has elaborated in his mind to become real, to become art. Thus, the artist is a sensitive man who “thinks more and sees more” and expresses his higher mental sensibility through his works of art. Such a theory of art developed by the Greeks and the Italian Renaissance, makes art a sacred endeavor, since art tries to expand the limits of human sensorial perception, in his perennial search for the truth and the essence of the Universe.
Out of all the human senses, why is it we highlight visual and verbal perception as the origin of art? In biological terms the answer is simple. Sound and sight offer much more information to the human mind than the other senses of touch, taste and smell do. Since the creation of art requires an initially rich sensorial evidence, only those senses can provide the perceptive material needed to create complex works of art. Art is therefore, first the evolution of our linguistic, verbal and visual perception of reality, and only in a secondary level, a product, a work of art for sale in the market.
The former explains why the Greeks considered philosophers, that only talked, and had no products on sale, the highest artists. Since they could combine words -the second level of the mind, that comments on what the sight sees- with such a beautiful logic, as to create new “wor[l]ds”, new linguistic images of reality, only with the power of the mind.
Images and words are the languages of creation of the human mind. They are like mirrors which show the Universe. However the mirror is not the Universe in itself, just an image of it. A linguistic mirror of reality. What you see is not reality, just the creation of your mind.
But all human minds have a genetic, basic way of creating the wor[l]d of sound as images, as all dogs smell and create a world of smells that probably is similar. What differences the artist is its capacity to distort, in several possible ways -what we call artistic styles- that basic biological mirror. He will be a verbal artist, when he makes descriptive models of the Universe with words. He will be a visual artist, when he creates sight-based models of that Universe.
Word Art and Sight Art. The eye-word, preceptor of space and time
It follows that there are two basic forms of “mind art”; Word and sound arts: music, and literature of any gender. And visual arts, architecture, painting, sculpture.
Why are images, and words the main sensorial languages of man? The answer is rather simple. We exist in time and space, the two parameters which define all species of the Universe. We therefore need to exist, survive and interpret such a Universe, a spatial and a temporal sense. The eye scans space. It is our spatial sense.The word remembers events in time. It is our temporal sense. So the eye-word are the human senses of perception of space and time, the main parameters of the Universe. This position places a special importance on the “higher arts”. It gives them a “sacred” meaning, since they deal with the very essence of mankind’s intelligence, our “soul,” which is our consciousness of space and time, of the Universe. The difference between both arts is in the senses which control the creation of the art form. Visual arts depend on spatial perception, through eye-images. Word art is “temporal art”, since man uses words and verbs to measure and explain events which happen in time. Verbs are the “temporal memory of man”, the “scanner of time” of the human mind.
We conclude that art is the highest expression of the human mind, in as much as it takes the mind of man into further evolution beyond its biological limits. The visual artist is the person able to see more and, with a higher sight, he is able to create images in two dimensions (painting) or 3 dimensions (architecture and sculpture). On the other hand, writers and musicians are able to think better in sounds; either in the simplified language of 8 sounds (music) or the more complex language of 24 sounds (words). They are able to explain emotions, sensations and temporal events with more complexity than ordinary people can, and with a higher sense of harmony, according to the natural laws of the Universe.
Mind-art, art of the human senses of space and time, the eye and the word, is clearly the highest level of knowledge man reaches about the Universe by his own linguistic means, with his soul-mind. In this manner, the wor[l]d becomes our soul-mind, the linguistic mirror that words and images craft on the Universe of atomic energy and information.
Even though man has 5 sensorial outlets to the Universe, it is important to distinguish between our “Energy senses” and “Informative senses”. The former might also evolve and create human goods to satisfy our perception (gastronomy, perfumes), but these can hardly inform us about the Universe, since their physiology allows them to accumulate only a small quantity of information. So they give way to simple sensorial objects. The Informative senses of the mind, eyes and words, accumulate thousands of times more information than the lower senses do. So they give birth to much more complex works of art. For that reason those works which relate to the higher senses of man are considered to be the classic arts in History.
However, in the present market-oriented society, the word “art” has been devaluated to allow the sale of many products which traders promote as art when they are mere crafts that do not evolve the human mind. This has an economic reason behind it; “a single genius is a single sale”. It is difficult to find enough truly creative works of art to invade the world market. Therefore the idea of converting any object into art and use the prestige of art to market industrial products, has expanded the notion of art beyond the products of the mind into many other things, from clothing to gastronomy, from images taken by machines to industrial design, of minimal creative content.
Man has existed for 150.000 years and he always considered art a sacred endeavor, and art works the most perfect or innovative forms perceived and recreated by the higher senses of the mind; words and images. Thus only products of “the eye-wor[l]d”, in its classical manifestations: literature, poetry, drama, prose, musical sounds, painting, sculpture and architecture, are considered art in this web. They are the seven arts of classical Greece, which the seven muses embodied.
The lower senses of man, those which have a limited perception of reality, (taste, touch, smell) blurred by the lack of distinct and clear information, create what we might call at best, lower art, forms of Human Goods, that should be promoted and reproduced as much as possible since they are truly the real wealth of nations,the goods mankind needs to survive: gastronomy, sex, textiles, perfumes… Yet precisely for that reason they cannot be unique, or special of a certain human mind, but common and available to all men, in a healthy body of history.
The style of an artist, and the style of a society.
The present earth is changing from a historic ecosystem of human social organisms based in human beings, human goods, and human art into a single ecosystem ruled by metal organisms, networks, and financial systems, that we might call the metal-earth.
The main effect of that change is the increasing obsolescence of human art and human minds, submissive today to the industrial design of software for thinking machines.
However in the past, in the ecosystems-organisms of history that we have called nations and civilizations, words, legal systems and art were far more important, because they were the informative networks of societies. Verbal and visual knowledge and Art were the mind of civilizations as historic organisms, organized by legal information, and religion.
And so art, as the social networks of information of civilizations, was not so much an individual phenomena, but a collective phenomena. And the artist felt himself with a social role, as the neuronal cells, the informative organs of his society. It was for that reason the art of any artist was basically similar, to the art of all other artists of its society.
It was “style-art”, because the style, was the collective message of a civilization. Today however, because civilizations are no longer ruled by human minds, but by networks of financial information, by company-mothers and its lobbies, by networks of metal-minds that produce information in industrial processes, the artist no longer has a social role of relevance. So he is free of any collective style.
The style that controls ideas of artists, exists however in radios, televisions, internets, and all other forms of industrial information. A style which is controlled, and tailored to produce the basic message of industrial societies: men have as only purpose to work=reproduce machines, and test=consume them.
Of course this message is presented with al the rhetoric of beauty, and freedom necessary to hide the fact, that work and consume are not acts that necessarily develop and increase the human sensorial Freedom, but basically evolve and multiply machines. Yet the message has reached so much sophistication, that most human beings today, believe that to be a worker and a consumer is the paramount Freedom of mankind; while to evolve human senses, and enjoy Human Goods, and the pleasures of human existence is either a “sin”, an act of “laziness”, and “weakness” and a “lost of time”. The fact is that all top predators in the Universe, exist to be lazy, lions of the savanna, enjoying the basic pleasures of his organism, to reproduce (sex-love), to feed energy [food, movement], and to receive its natural information (verbal thought and visual beauty in the human case). That is, the ideals of society before the industrial revolution – the ideals of Renaissance, and the aristocracy, top predator caste of that age. And vice versa, and ideal world dedicated to the freedoms of machines, will imply that men-slaves of machines would dedicate their time to the reproduction of machines (work) its evolution (industrial research) and its vitalization as species in movement (consume of machines that vitalize their existence).
So it is evident that the Freedom of the market, the Freedom of the economy, is the Freedom of machines and its company-mothers. While the biological Freedom of the citizen, of the human being, were the ideals expressed by the art styles of historic civilizations. Those facts have of course enormous historic relevance, and explain why under such brain-washing propaganda, the classic historic, social, religious art and his aesthetic and ethic ideas, clash so deeply with modern ideologies of economical men and yet they were accepted and enjoyed by the citizens of Historic civilizations. They found in the social ideas of religious art, and the sensorial ideals of individual art, the pursuit of their self-realization as individual, biological human beings, and as part of a macro-social organism, a culture, or civilization, that social art harmonized, as nervous messages harmonize social cells in a body.
In all those cultures art was sacred, art was considered the informative network of the Historic organism. Art caused the evolution of the collective human mind. Art was the mind of civilizations, and acted in the social historic organism, as the nervous networks act in the human organism.
Art the informative mind of the civilizations. The canon of ethics and aestehtics
Since we have defined human art, as the visual and verbal perception olf space and time by the human ind, it fllows that collectiv e art was also visal and verbla rt, of colletive nature. And that collective nature imposed upon social art, two socila concepts: ethics and aesthetics of human nature. So classic art always had two basic forms, social ethic art, and individual aesthetic art, and two canons, moral, and beauty, carried by the word, and the eye of the human artist.
Today, even artists find those ideals, something of the past, because the artist today is not the valuator of reality, and has no ethic role. He does not educate the rest of the cells of society. So sacred art, religious art (which tried to create a social, harmonic morality among the different cells of society), even legal thought, has declined. Of course this has given individual Freedom to artists, to reflect their individual personality since nobody cares really anymore for what we, the artists, neurons of humanity, have to say.
Yet for most of history, Art has been a social phenomena, since men, lived in a social organism. The artist lived within a society. His ideas were similar to those of other artists of that society, fruit of customs and learning processes within that society. And so, the information that the mental cells of a civilization developed (the artistic information of a culture) was similar in most of the artists of a civilization. Styles in art gathered those similar mind-wor[l]ds, coming from people living in the same place, at the same time, as neurons work in the same manner, in the same organisms.
Individual art, the genius… and its relationship with social art
The style of an artist, is the peculiar way in which the mind of the artist, transforms the biological “Wor[l]d” of perception, that all humans have in common; the sounds and image we perceive as the Universe. While most people see reality under those biological limits, the artist goes beyond the subjective eye-Wor[l]d of the human species, and adds certain personal subjective changes to those images and words. This is the artist’s style.
The artist with his style goes beyond the “common way of perceiving reality”, and shows those other possible Worlds, that maybe some other species in some far away planet perceive directly (imagine a world where eyes see with the colors of a fauvist painter).
Still in the Earth, men see reality in a certain manner, and only artists are able to break with those conventions of the mind. Such individual artists are rightly called genius, since they create an entire new way of perception. When such new way of perception is meaningful, and harmonic, and can be understood at least partially by the audience, we have found an original artist.
Yet, in as much as men belong to social organisms, where they communicate in-form-ation to other human “cells” of the social organism, even individual genius, and its perception of reality, reproduces into works of art, that transmit the information to other “neurons” of the social organisms. In this manner, styles are transmitted, and create “schools” of art where many similar artist display the same style.
If the individual artist expresses its mind experience through its personal art, we can say that the society expresses its collective mind experience through schools of art.
If individual art is the evolution of the mental senses of the artist towards regions never explored by the common human mind, the style-art is the evolution of the collective mind of civilizations. It reflects the social mental state, of such civilization (as individual art reflects the mental state of the individual artist). In that sense, art becomes the collective mind of a civilization.
It is then clear that in classic history the role of artists was indeed sacred, fundamental, because verbal and visual artists, were in charge of recreating a Wor[l]d pleasant to man, where human social cells were in harmony, and shared as cells in any organism do, their vital information and energy. Ethic priests ruled the verbal minds of people with messages of love and ethics. Artists created beautiful environments, well constructed cities. Energy workers (farmers) fed the cells of the organisms. Literature educated the feelings of people, allowing bondage among individuals, at several levels (love, family, citizenship, religion). There was therefore a clear idea of what a social nation was, and what artists had to do in such society. That is why artists tried to find “canons” of beauty, that people would imitate, as role models.
The canons in classic art. What are ethics and aesthetics?
We can now understand the concept of a canon, both in verbal art (canon of ethics) and in visual art (canon of beauty). Today in individual art, when art is no longer the mind of civilizations, but science is, canons do not matter, but in the past, when art guided cultures, and took care of its survival and welfare, it was necessary and fundamental.
There was a canon of beauty in space, that had as element of reference the human form. Since we are humans, and we were top predators of the Earth, as all top predators do, we designed a Wor[l]d to our image and resemblance. So spatial arts, had as canon of beauty the proportions of human beings, and in its most beautiful creations (Greek, Italian art), that canon was respected, to create an environment in which man felt happy, in harmony with his surroundings, and dedicated to the pursuit of sensorial pleasure. This is the case of Greek and Renaissance sculpture and architecture.
There was also a canon of beauty in time, defined by the biological language of measure of time, that mankind uses: verbal thought.
How can we define beauty on time? It is self-evident, that if you ask anyone, what he would want to happen in time, he would say, “I want to survive”. So survival is indeed, the canon of beauty in time. And survival has in social thought a name: Ethics. Ethic societies that promote peace, and abhor war, do not die away. Societies that create systematically weapons end in civil wars, or in national wars. Thus, the people that were considered great artists of verbal thought in the past, were the prophets and writers that praised peace, and with poetic parables, preached the well being and harmony among human beings. Philosophy and religion were considered the highest forms of verbal thought. This, as we said no longer holds, since we are no longer ruled by words, but by numbers, by men, but by machines and prices. But we cannot ignore the fact that ethics and religious thought have controlled mankind. And the great artists of the word have been those prophets such as Jesus and Buddha, that talked against weapons and money, and praised love, and human senses. The artist is indeed the prophet, not the church, or the latter commentator. The master of the Word is Jesus, that defends a prostitute, and foresees that those “who kill by the sword, will die by the sword”, not the Catholic Church or Luther, and Calvin that acceptmoney and war, and repress sensorial love.
The quality of verbal art
As a consequence of the biological nature of languages, we cannot regard any longer verbal art, as a product, or a secondary commodity. “Literature for the sake of aesthetics; art for the sake of art” is far less relevant than “sacred art”, literature with an educational mission, either social literature and philosophy, or sensorial literature (fiction), which educates the senses and feelings of the people. There are qualities in the forms of literature, because literature has a function. Literature is not useless entertainment. Verbal Art is the biological language of mankind, and our societies. Its function is to mirror reality and explain the universe to man, from our own point of view, with the aim of helping human societies to survive. This means that we can qualify the quality of literature, according to such function.
It will be good literature, either legal, religious, fiction or logic literary art, a verbal construction that through its reading and practice, improves the capacity of an individual to behave ethically and in harmony with the other members of his society. It will be bad art, those literary and verbal forms that harm the harmony of societies.
So “War and Peace” is good art. So it is the “bill of rights” or the “Gospel”. They try to give the reader an “ethic sense of life” that favors peace over war; human rights over the rights of machines; and love and poverty, and despise for money and war, (the message of the gospel). Since history proves that those attitudes are positive for the survival of the individuals of society. On the other hand bad verbal art, is that art, which harms the energy and information of civilizations, pushing individuals against each other.
A typical script made in Hollywood that makes an apology of violence and murder is bad verbal art, regardless of its technological achievements. Its consequence is to multiply the use of weapons in our society, of technological species, that harm mankind.
The decalogue scripts of Polish director K. Kieslowski, are master pieces of filmed literature, despite its minimal technology because they make us reflect on the basic matters of love and life and death, far more important than the designed special effects of digital computers. A fascist law is also bad art. A religion which does not accept the equality of all men, a tribal religion of “chosen of God”, is also bad ethic verbal art. Since it allows war between tribes. Those facts are self-evident to any human being that thinks naturally about the purpose of art and verbal thought. They might collide with the “economic view”, that favors all forms of literature, specially those forms of literature, that multiply the use of machines, even weapons (economic and military nationalism, advertising, etc.)… according to the old lemma “you will defend me with your sword, and I will defend you with my word”.
Such art is considered here “rhetoric art”, bad literature, since its purpose is the opposite to the biological function of verbal thought. However in present societies most verbal art is rhetoric art, art that has neither a moral, ethic standing, or even any relationship with the reality of man as an individual or member of a human society. Why is that? Because words are no longer the language of information and power of our societies, a role that today belongs to money.
As a consequence, verbal thought is no longer the language of power, the sacred language, and it has no longer the role of guiding the survival of mankind. For that reason words enter in decadence, and loose “logic, realistic power”, becoming “fiction”, a language used to describe false realities. The value of things now is given by its price, not by its verbal meaning. And so mathematics describes reality, while words are used to describe fictions, and those realities of lesser power, such as the individual lives – no longer the social lives of people… Literature is now too often fiction, or science, or shallow I-literature, ego-trips and bio-pics of little relevance, or books on secondary senses and products (from gastronomy, to do-it-yourself manuals). Sacred literature has almost died away…
The function of visual art
What was the social role on that sacred view, of visual art? If we have considered verbal art, to be in charge of the temporal perception of a civilization, visual art, obviously will be in charge of the visual perception of such culture. Visual art therefore has also a human canon, an aesthetic, spatial canon, referred to the relative dimensions of man. If verbal art has to create temporal harmony among individuals, visual art has to create spatial harmony, beauty, in the space of that civilization.
Such is the classic vision of architecture and sculpture, urbanism and painting, even gardening, or agricultural development. All those arts that transform the space around us tried to create a harmonic environment in societies. And when both canons succeeded, we talk of a harmonic civilization in which ethics and aesthetics (the moral of the eye), favor a Wor[l]d built to the image and resemblance of mankind.
The function of art, is to shape the environment of man in a pleasant way. Yet since all measure in space and time is relative (Theory of Relativity), a pleasant space for man has the references of human size and form. To make of man the center of creation, the God of the Earth. This was understood perfectly by the theoretical minds of Renaissance, the last human culture, previous to the Industrial Revolution. The aim of renascence artists was to create ethics and aesthetics, for the Italian society. They worked hand in hand with the church in charge of the ethics of Christian societies. They tried to create “canons” of beauty as the gospel tried to create canons of ethics. They affirmed that men should try to achieve a mind and a body according to such canons. The artist, as the most complex mind of society, was the guide of the individual, which tried to achieve personal perfection as a human being, imitating those ethic and aesthetic roles, the artists showed him.
The destruction of the Renaissance caused by the evolution of gunpowder weapons, the creation of religions that worshipped money instead of words as the language of information of human societies (Calvinism, Anglicanism), and the beginning of science with its despise for human words and human eyes, meant the collapse of the artist as the guide of human societies.
The human paradise as the goal of history also was lost. A new culture, and a new civilization appeared, where the goal of history became the progress of the machine, and the human goal, the paradise of human senses, where “man is the measure of all things” was forgotten.
We are living the consequences of such mistake, in a world in which man no longer matters, where humans and words are submissive to mathematics and machines…
Yet only the best human minds, verbal priests, and social activists that follow the original ideas of his wor[l]d-masters, sensorial artists, that do not renounce to explore fully the human nature, and rebels of thought that do not accept the brain-washing of scientific myths, and market-propaganda, realize of the errors of our society.
The myth of superman
All this bring us to a final reflection on the nature of the Human Masters, the great artists of verbal and visual wor[l]ds that have confronted throughout History, the metal masters, warriors, traders and scientists that base their power, not in their own senses and biological nature, but in the power of energy-metal (lines of metal or weapons from swords to missiles, cycles of metal, ormoney, and metal-minds or scientific instruments).
Human Masters who “think more and see more”, are the true masters of mankind. Since mankind is a mental race -its body is not even the strongest of all carbolife species- and the master artist is the most developed human mental race, it is the artist, the “super-man”, not the warrior, or the scientist, that rely on weapons and metal-minds, to power up their bodies and minds. This was the vision of the Greek philosophers, and it is the biological truth. Hence, human masters, masters of the wor[l]d should rule human societies, as Plato wisely understood. They do not rule our societies, because warriors, traders and scientists, impose their power with the help of their metal and as a consequence, they also corrupt art, which becomes another ‘informative’ myth, used to glorify animetal castes in power.
Technological art: evolution of metal-minds.
What about modern technological art? It is obvious, and we treat the theme when studying metal-communicators, that modern art is rhetoric art to the service of power, of people-castes and corporations.
In that regard, both the software of modern technological art, merely visual, evident, and based in ‘motion’, which implies violence and ‘skin views’, which implies racism, and the hardware – the machine that evolves digital thought, are NOT forms of human art but ‘ab=use’ human memes degrading art, since the age of TV (film still kept due to the difficulty and inclusion of multiple arts a high quality of human sensorial memes, bust mostly at an emotional, already lowering scale of awareness):
In terms of human time existence, the fundamental property of those globalised trends of digital mass art, except the work of a few isolated artists, has a meaning: to maintain the increasingly obsolete human mind-species in a state of passive acceptance of the system, misusing its life in a lethargic state that with the arrival of violent video-games and 3D Virtual hypnotic fictions will render humans totally atrophied in its capacity to react against the system and its growing obsolescence to machines.The graph from the 92 book ‘the extinction of man’, shows truly what fiction means, the extinction in life of most of the active existence of human beings hypnotised by screens that deactivate their eusocial love with selfish messages – you kill for money resumes the meaning of most telefilms, and instil the animetal idol-ogies of the system, mechanism, abrahamic cults, nationalism and worship of money.
Now this trend has extended in the process, of ‘murdering’ of art by markets and Warhol-style propaganda and advertising art. So the process of death of visual art is really advanced.
And what is more telling, as the price of trash-art, Warhol industrial mechanical posters, overcomes that of the best eclectic artist of the post-photograph age of inward, baroque informative eclectic art, Mr. Picasso, we can be sure that not even ‘critiques’ and collectors do understand the meaning of human sacred art.
In the graph, the last age of human art, was the eclectic, inward, informative 3rd age of human I=eye Wor(l)ds, which peaked with Picasso destruction of the outer world forms of the visual eye, improved by machines, by the internal mind ‘ I paint thoughts’ he said.
After that, there was a long silence broke by the hijacking of art by industrial systems of reproduction of photographs, which plagued the American post- Pollock/Hooper, non-artistic age of ‘Fakes’, perfectly described by Orson Welles, in his film on art markets. Warhol and his series of audiovisual, mechanical artists, with minimal human information (The Beatles copying Beethoven chords and put silly simple words, such as ‘I love you’, in every other word), shows clearly that art started with the arrival of audiovisual media a massive simplification previous to the present degeneration of art into electronic music, repetitive beats and minimalist thought.
Craft still exists.
So the best art today is either happening in 3rd world societies (as the Dakkar biennale shows) or in the regression to simple crafts, which have more value than a Wharhol poster. It is a root grass movement of normal people doing good imitative art, given the fact that the search for sacred art and humanist art is exhausted, and the role models of society are ‘eviL people’, intensely fighting for the destruction of all human values, pursuing those digital values of the ‘language of money’ that treat men as object.
Evilwood is NOT art, trust me. I arrived there with Mr. Pitt and Mr. Mandel, actor and producer, and a script hired to write for them and stay around for a decade. In a perfect world, Hollywood would be a holly-sacred place of astounding artistic films enhancing the nature of mankind, and a bigger number of documentary pieces.
As it is today is just the idol-ogical branch of the FMasters and the Military-Industrial Globalized Complex of corporations.
How can we classify the third type of products that the market today sells as “art”, and are neither Human Goods, not Human evolutionary visual/verbal art?
They are either crafts and industrial designs that use forms of energy and information of minimal complexity, (geometrical cycles and lines) easy to be mass-produced, with machines. They are also creative forms, such as photographs or computer art, which are new, evolved images that seem to have the characteristics of sacred art, yet lack the fundamental element of human art: the human mind is not the main creator of those forms, but a machine, a “metal-head” is. That is they are metal-mind art, the art of machines, the art of science…
In that sense we have to differentiate the human method of verbal/visual knowledge, the art of the human mind, that uses words and eyes to understand the Universe, with the method of knowledge that animetal scientists use to perceive the universe of space and time: the scientific method.
If both art and science search for knowledge of space and time, then what is the main difference between the two of them? The difference is radical, when we realize that art and science use different sensorial instruments of perception to search for that knowledge. Art uses the biological organs of mankind to understand space and time. The word, our biological language that measures time, is used in art to express thoughts and ideas about the passing of time, and its 3 dimensions, past, present and future, which verbs mirror with its 3 temporal forms. The eye, our biological organ of perception of space, is used in art to define our understanding of the three dimensions of spatial reality, width, length and depth (created in 2-dimensional painting with perspective or cubist deformation).
On the other hand, science uses sensorial organs which are not human organs, but machines, made basically of another type of atoms, metal. So we can baptize the organs of perception of science, “metal-minds”. They are “metal-sensorial organs”, machines that perceive time (clocks and computers) and machines that perceive space (telescopes, microscopes, cameras).
We could say that art is knowledge through human senses, and science is knowledge through metallic senses. It follows that arts evolve the human perception of the universe, while science evolves the perception of machines. And so, thanks to science, the primitive systems of temporal perception of machines (the clocks of Mr. Galileo) have become computers. And the primitive first “metal-eyes” of Mr. Galileo, founder of modern science (his telescopes), have become today the sophisticated cameras we see all around us.
If we are strict in our classic, biological definition of art, the languages and images which cannot be reproduced by human minds and humans hands are not human art. So science and its machines does not produce human art. Please leave aside your western ideologies that worship machines, and consider machines abstract species. Technological art is not “a creation of the human mind”, but of a “metal-mind”. And the role of man in its creation will always be secondary to the role of the machine.
If in a painting, the canvas is the passive element, and the painter the active element, in a computer-designed art form, or a photography, the human mind plays the role of the passive “canvas” adapting his style to the properties of the machine. And the active creator is the machine, which imposes his language to the “craftsman”.
So we have to be much more exigent with technological crafts to consider them a form of human art. Only those forms of technological art focused in the human experience, that require a lot of human creativity (such as “art films”, or some photographic work by masters like Cartier or Capra), can be seriously consider a technological form of human art.
The other forms of technological crafts, specially those created with computers, or related to mere mathematical, and digital shapes, belong to the “lower arts”. We call them crafts because their human content is minimal. To disguise those obvious truths, the technological artist rhetorizes his work and markets it with arrogant statements to make-belief that he is the only artist, and the machine a mere extension of his mind, not a metal-mind with his own linguistic properties (the language is the message).
That anthropocentric concept of technological art, might be true, of art made with “primitive metal-minds” (classic film-making). Yet the arrival of computers and special effects gives predominance to the machine over the human manipulator. So today Hollywood films are made by computers, according to the computer and metal-eye properties that seek higher movement and hence violence, brutality with the human body, and distortion of human feelings with dramatic effects. They are genres imposed by the machine not by the artist.
Today the arrogance of the animetal artist grows as his role in the act of creation diminishes. So we can hear sentences, such as those of a well-known Asian video artist, that considers his last work of electronic distortions, his entering on “a sublime period, like the great French gothic cathedrals”. Or the sentences of a well-known computer mogul, that considers the 010011 crunching of his software programs, “a form of creative art, like anything the great masters have ever done”. Or the evil=anti-live sentences of the father of robotics, that says he wants to play god, and construct a species superior to the human mind…
In technological crafts as in market-art, rhetoric and the cult to the machine, takes over real human creativity. Animetals can occupy their creativity in whatever they want, specially when they pursuit money and fame, which are market-oriented concepts, but we cannot pretend to make Leonardos of Animetals, children of human thought, working with Basic, Adobe Photoshop, or a video-monitor… to the risk of loosing any perspective on the nature of our human mind, and the importance that human art has to develop the human soul, our sense of ethics and aesthetics, in freedom of thought.
A more complex view.
A more detached view though is the higher perspective of the laws of the bio-ethic laws of the organic Universe, a level of comprehension I rarely bring to this web, as it might seem ‘too far out’ for those who ignore all about General Systems Sciences. Yet it is necessary to understand the perfect man to compare and put into perspective each of our souls and that of those we observe riding us with the 4 apocalypse horses (myths are always metaphors of higher truths which give a poetic perspective)…
So let us try… The Universe is a ‘System’ made of organisms of energy and information, from physical systems, made of an informative particle moved over a body/field of energy, to human beings, made of informative heads moved by energetic bodies, to societies ruled by a neuronal class in control of our languages of social power, (money and words, and its submissive energetic language of weapons which money and words always command), which direct a body mass of working middle classes…
This must be understood – the pantheist universe constructs its ultimate laws of science and all its sub-sets of beings, made to the image and likeness of the whole departing from that simple duality.
And so to survive it selects those entities with a more perfect ‘body’ of maximal energy, brain of maximal information and the system that maximizes both, Max. E x Max. I, which mathematically happens when E=I (so for a total of 10, 5×5=25 > 6×4=24>7×3=21, etc.)
Now departing from those laws of General Systems, applied to human beings, there is a potential perfect man, which maximizes those 3 survival functions:
– A man of maximal Bravery; Max. E, or mental energy to challenge the wrongs of life by applying its Intelligence (max. Information), to create an ethic and aesthetic balance (E=I), between truth (Max. Information) and Happiness (Max. strength) – yes, good people who help others have been proved by experiments to be happier, to emit more oxytocin, the drug of love and happiness).
This simple function: Max. E -> Max. I -> Max E=I, defines the survival species of reality creating a perfect world of maximal ethics and beauty, the canon of being human (which we observe in ‘classic forms’ of aesthetics and ethics, that is of art and literature, with balance between energy and form, or in the 2nd age of maturity of any entity).
Now this simple function is broken, because E=I, ethics and aesthetics of human origin have been SUBSTITUTED by the ethics and aesthetics of the machine that destroy our collective social, ethic mind.
Thus the function of bio-ethics, of a human civilization based in the values of man, which is explained all the ‘messages’ of all the prophets of history worth to mention is now gone. But that does not mean that the search for human beauty and ethics, the natural goal of our species is not truth. It is and it will always be. So there will always be as long as humans exist in the past, present and future among the highest minds those who seek to define and practice the conduct of the perfect man, guided by the survival balance and sense of justice of the Universe, represented in our species by human ethics and aesthetics, E=I:
For example in Plato is the ‘idea of man’, the ideal man which is our potential perfect man, of which each of us, is a mere shadow, reflection in the ‘cave’, parable of the Mind of God, the Logos, or rational laws of the Universe, of that perfect man. Socrates expressed it also with its life and dictum that ‘an intelligent man (max. I) can only be a good man (E=I)’
In non corrupted Abrahamic Religions, he is the prophet, the canon of which all of us must be a reflection, trying to achieve his perfection. This was better expressed in the great philosophers of the first age of christianity before ‘animetal cultures’ of gold and weapons degraded this religion, from Orestes to Saint Augustine, in its ‘citadel’. Here the function most cherished is E=I (Ethics).
It was expressed from Confucius (Jen Man) and Mo-Ti to Buddha in all the Eastern religions. And here as in Plato we find a close description of this Jen/Buddha man, in its 3 functions (the right fold path)
It will be again expressed by neo-platonic renaissance which stressed the 3rd final function of balance and beauty, as the Greek-Latins did (mens sana in corpore sanum).
It was NOT, expressed, contrary to belief in most prophets of the Jewish-Protestant culture, since the Old testament is hihgly polluted by selfish tribal memes of go(l)d and war; but Moses and other prophets of the Isaiah cycle brought us the closest image of it.
So we had to wait till the French-American R=evolution and all those who imitated those Founding Fathers of modern ethics (including the marxist r=evolutionary man).
And so the Ideal, Canonical, Rightful, R=evolutionary ‘Perfect’ man exists at least in the mind of the poets of love that use the ethics of the wor(l)d to guide and create by imitation and right action, a critical mass of perfect men.
On that view modern humans and their animetal, mechanical cultures must be qualified as the Imperfect men, hence once that will not survive, because the Universe is perfect and only selects those perfect species who are made to the image and likeness of its logos, that a few of those men we quoted understood, because they had in themselves the seeds of the perfect man.
But the Universe and its selective system is both deterministic (as there are rules and laws that define what survives in the future) but also probabilistic (as a perfect universe should even forgive those who are imperfect, yet allowing them also a minimal probability of existence; hence most men are born potentially perfect, good Rousseaunian savages).
We are in that ‘Sigma 2’ using again mathematical terms of the more complex level of equations of bio-history (that dream of Asimov, which I resolved two decades ago and have seen unfolding every time ever since).
That is, we are the tail of the imperfect man, a planet with no critical mass of ethics, inteligence and aesthetics.
The Whole and collective self of mankind is the Wor(l)d, we make to our image and likeness, with a will carried by the collective verbal language of the human kind, the word.
In the graph, languages value species according to their substance affinity. So ethic words give maximal value to human life, since human brains reproduce them. While money was first made of metal, (coins) and gave maximal value to metal weapons. Then it was a paper and e-money representing a corporation (stocks) and so it gives companies enormous values. So Apple is worth more than all the inhabitants of Pakistan.
Only currency, representing nations carries human values and can be used to reproduce a world to our image and likeness, spent by governments in the creation of salaries and welfare goods. Thus the issue of money is NOT so much how to issue it, but its values and the power it gives to those who invent it; since it defines who rule societies.
The problem of monetary values as the graph shows is the fact that in its metallic forms, it values more corporations, machines and weapons, metal-memes than any other object, including human beings, who in fact as all forms of life have null values in terms of metallic money.
Thus a society based in the values of metal-money either gold or corporative money, fosters the overproduction cycles of machines and weapons that cause wars and the extinction of life; showing the biological, predatory nature of selfish metal memes, which act as genes do, catalyzing the reproduction of a larger super-organism – the Financial-Media/Military-Industrial system that is terraforming the Earth from a planet of life into a planet made to the image of machines and weapons, the most expensive top predator metal-species that kills man.
The problem with the values of money rises from its traditional hypnotic substance (precious metal, today e-cycles in ‘metal-minds’, computers). Go(l)d, a fetish form of money that hypnotizes the mind, and became the fetish of Cananean societies in the desert lands between the fertile crescent humanist civilizations of Sumer and Egypt – origin of the biblical gold religions – is a metal-language and so values more metal than life.
Consider instead a system, which is efficiently, designed economically from the Human/Historic perspective, in which as all mammal, evolved organisms do, the legal/verbal/nervous natural language of man that puts human subject first:
…rule the world. We would live a WHealthy world, where history would be the future, machines controlled by men, usurers out of power and humanity would thrive.
THUS ∆+1 ETHICS IS THE LANGUAGE OF THE WOR(L)D AND ITS SCIENCE, BOTH in its religious version (social love religions) and its human one (free, democratic, equalitarian, humanist cultures).
Money or Laws, the 0.02% or the 99%? How humans should rule the world.
Now for those with little time, ready to abandon the blog all the questions of social sciences, ever since civilisation started have resumed into a simple choice: how mankind should rule the planet, as a social organism, ruled by an informative/nervous-like language of power? And who should control the language?
The question was not even there in the Neolithic because humans only ‘talked’ and so words built a wor(l)d made to our image and likeness, as words have a syntax or ‘Universal grammar’:
subject (man) verb (action) object (energy of man)…
Where the object, including the machine is owned and ab=used by man. So a world ruled by words will always put man above the machine, and as such will never be at risk, but on the downside it will be more focused in life goods (welfare) and hence develop less machines. And it will also cater to the 99%, which IS mankind, as all men are born equal in rights as human beings for a scientist of History. This is the model of two classic humanist cultures, latin Europe, epitomised in Rome first and then France and China.
The advantage of such model is that the Law can then prune the tree of science of his bad fruits. And specially that all humans understand words and words do not KILL. So words allow real democracies to exist and people who care to understand policies.
The second model appeared in Levante, Canaan, knot of trade between three continents and two dense fertile regions, Egypt and Mesopotamia, with the discovery of hard metal, bronze and informative metal, gold, which by the law of affinity between species as opposed to the law of darwinian struggle between different species, which applies to all systems, value each other. So a new set of values were established by the affinity of words and human brains and money and weapons:
The bottom line: company-mothers of machines and the values of money.
Now we can understand why all those cycles are not building a world made to the image and likeness of man but one made to the image and likeness of machines, ruled not by human social organisations but by company-mothers:
Because there has been a change of paradigm in the social language of power of mankind, from verbal ethic thought to digital money, whose values are opposed – as money, traditionally a soft informative metal atom has always valued more other forms of metal, notably weapons, than life with no value. While the values of words, a mental, human ‘flesh’ language give absolute value to human life.
Now that graph is biological, complex, proper of systems theory and the affinity between substances – so gold prices weapons, which were made of iron – the most informative and energetic atoms of the Universe, today, bodies of robots and minds of robots in golden chips. Gold hypnotise the brain and we have found inhibits oxytocin – love drug. Iron kills the body. So the biological predatory nature of metal vs. life atoms, of metalife machines vs. human beings IS real, chemical and tells us something: the laws of biology and darwinian behaviour ARE FAR MORE extended in their applications that we believe.
And it is also darwinian in the fight between the human proper language, and the distorted mind of those cultures that made of Gold (cananean, abrahamic and baalist cults, proto-form of capitalism) and iron (Indo-european & gothic, germanic tribes, proto-form of militarism) their ‘fetish-language of power’, debasing ever since their respect for gaia and human life – so we shall call them animetals, lesser human cultures with a harsher metal content.
Now fast forward: today we ALL believe money matters more than words, obey its hidden values, ignore its collateral destruction of life, consider human ruled verbal societies inefficient, and build a global super organism of machines, which compare with the syntax of money both:
Man (salary) = Price (MONEY) = Object (weapon, machine)
And so puts them in competition in labor and war fields where machines, evolved faster and stronger weapons displace or kill us. As computers speak better the language of the eco(nomic)system and so are selecte by the ecosystem:
In the graph, a key law of all (eco)systems ruled by a head/particle/network/language of information: the species that better talks the language survives, reproduces, multiplies and displaces the other. So as we are ruled by digital money, which computers talk in their brains, inventing it as e-money today, metal->machines rule the world.
On the human side, further on because money is a digital language that humans do NOT create freely in the mind and understand, the world is a financial dictatorship as the tiny 0.02% who issues 90% of global money in e-money derivatives an stocks, and then GIVE ORDERS – salaries, bribes, prices – with it, BUYING part-time human life, making people CONSTRUCT THE world they like – which for idol-ogical reasons explored in depth in their cult(ure), LOVE metal more than man. So DEMOCRACIES do not exist.
Yet an astounding range of corrupted politicos and scholars, greased with financial money have been at work for centuries to invent a ‘superstructure’ of idol-ogies debasing a world ruled by words and praising the capitalist system, convincing us money and the private elite that manufactures it must rule.
And so to understand the two super organisms this planet is evolving, human history and the world of machines and its company-mothers, those languages, which are ethic wor(l)ds and go(l)d, metal-digital-informative metal, we need to understand first the ‘hidden values’ and syntax of its two languages.
So we write a simple evolutionary equation of 3 super-organisms; one becoming extinct into the ‘past’, the other still the protagonist of the planet, history, but fast leaving place to a 3rd super organism of machines and its ‘automated company-mothers’, the metal-earth, or more properly described in detail, as the Financial-Media (informative machines)/Military-Indutrial (energetic machines) economic ecosystem (ab. FM²I):
Gaia: Life ecosystem (past) > Anthropocene: History: Human Superorganism (Present) > Mechanocene: Metal-earth: FM²I system (Future)
This is the evolutionary equation of systems sciences, which we shall apply to study from an objetive non-human perspective, which only will come forwards when giving a praxis of control and management of a sustainable ‘wHealthy’ Earth (awash with healthy human WELFARE goods instead of lethal goods), able to preserve history in an ‘eternal present’.
The result of the equation is a wave of two ‘opposite ecosystems and superorganisms’ those of metal and those of human life, sometimes symbiotic, sometimes in open warfare, where the tree of metal and those who fight for it, tend to win all the battles of history.
The vital constants of the historic organism are similar to all life beings, based in the maintenance of homeostasis, which means a balance between the 3 physiological networks: the economic system, Gaia, our life energy and the human population, the mind of Gaia.
This again takes us to understand the perfect world that would be a design of such balanced planet:
In the graph, its social super organisms, and physiological Spe-territories, ST-economic networks and Tiƒ-informative governments apply the laws of GST to human super organisms of history.
The III ages of the Earth.
In the graph, if we look at the largest worldview of the evolution of the planet, it is not difficult to forecast that if business as usual proceeds, the evolution of military A.I. and ‘metalife’ is poised to extinguish the weaker life-earth, as the previous ‘oxygen life’ poisoned and extinguished the anaerobic earth before:
Global warming, pollution and hunger, are just signs of the change of ‘age’ of the planet, from the Earth of Life (gaia) to the Earth of man (History, anthropocene) to the Earth of machines (Metal-earth, mechanocene), as all the financial and raw resources of the planet are deviated to the evolution and reproduction of machines, whose ‘$hit’ warms the planet, its engines ‘eat’ our food (in U$, more corn is destined to feed ethanol than human beings).
We study in depth the 3 ages of the Earth similar to that of any super organism on the top sentence that resumes the whole model, considering its organic nature, as indeed, the earth is a superoganism, word first coined by James Hutton father of geology, which realized larger species have slower ‘deep time cycles’, but accelerating them they behave as organic forms, and viceversa (so machines have faster cycles which are accelerating our time rhythms as their brains are smallish electron chips).
5th Isomorphism: Its 5 actions : ∆(æ-4; ï-3; e-2; œ-1; û+1)
The science of economics should create a welfare world where the goods produced enhance the ‘actions’ of humans at individual and collective level. To that aim, we should use an ‘ethonomic frame’ of reference plotting those actions, to promote its reproduction:
The natural, biological Goods of a human economy
In the graph: In Ethonomics it is fundamental to understand the concept of negative price value. In Ideological Economics in favor of metal-wealth, weapons and digital machines add to the GNP. In a real ethonomical system, that maximizes human welfare, lethal products have negative values. They do not add but subtract to the GNP of a nation, since they go against the evolution of mankind. Perhaps some theoretical background on the nature of scientific coordinates, is required to understand the Ethonomical coordinates of values.
Since knowledge is subjective, when describing a Universal ecosystem, we need to create first a linguistic frame of reference, or coordinates with negative and positive parameters that describe in terms of our “linguistic values” the Ecosystem.
In physics we do use mathematical coordinates, with positive (+) or negative (-) values referred to the space-time position of the observer. For example if we measure speed, negative acceleration rests in the negative side of the frame of reference and positive acceleration adds. It follows that in Ethonomics we need also negative and positive prices referred to the effect of products in the observer (the Human species).
In the graph, certain goods foster the 3 organic goals of mankind, human social evolution human energy, and human information. If we give to each good a certain value in those 3 organic goals, we can put them within the frame of reference.
Positive Y values are given to goods that foster human mental-informative evolution.
Negative Y values are given to goods that diminish human mental evolution. Positive X values are given to goods that foster human body evolution.
Negative X values are given to goods that foster human body devolution.
Finally, in the positive Z coordinates we consider goods that foster human social communication and reproduction of social networks.
In negative Z coordinates we consider goods that diminish human social communication. Since we know thanks to the laws of the vital Universe the nature of human mental and body evolution it is very easy to put in one of such graphs all kind of goods, and classify them as negative goods with negative GDP value, to be extinguished, or positive goods to be promoted. The product of its XYZ coordinates will give the negative or positive value of a good for the national GDP.
A scientific frame of reference establishes negative and positive values, according to the language and the frame of reference. From the point of view=frame of reference of ethonomics, of economics of verbal thought, and human survival, we can establish a positive and a negative value for economical products. In such frame of ethical reference, we can take judgment and make valuations on metal-species, based in human biological values, not in the values of money .
What extinguishes or degrades human minds, or human bodies, is negative; what promotes human life, evolution, and perception through human senses is positive. Such products should be promoted by politicians and ethonomists, governments and markets. The lethal products should be limited. In the world of economics we have to differentiate the products reproduced by companies and individuals into two clear groups:
– Human goods, which are goods that men require to survive, and better themselves.
– metal goods such as weapons or metal-heads, or robots, which harm human beings, expel labor, and create unemployment, kill our bodies, make our minds obsolete and will surely when they reach consciousness compete as top predators of energy and information for the control of the Earth.
The wealth of a nation should be defined as the wealth in Human Goods, that most citizens require and enjoy, because they improve their lives. These goods create also a lot of human work, because many of them cannot be reproduced by machines alone. Such is the case of art, housing, agriculture, health and education, that need human labor Countries like Spain came very up that list, headed by nations like Australia, Canada, and France. On the whole nations of the European Union are well up in that least, despite their perceived military and monetary weakness.
On the other hand countries like America or Russian whose societies are/were based in the production of lethal goods sunk in the real standards of life of their people. Indeed if we measure today wealth by the quantity of money and expensive items, such as weapons and complex machines a nation has, America is on top of the world. Yet in the list of healthy nations it appears way down. Since in that list certain goods do not add to the health of nations.
To have more missiles in the statistics of GDP growth does not make a nation healthier. To have hundreds of TV channels, and internet connections, instead of libraries and good schools does not make children more intelligent, sociable, and happier. To measure all the things and humans by their monetary value, price or salary, make us economic objects. Yet monetary values are different, sometimes completely opposed to human values.
For example murder and weapons are very expensive. They have however a negative human value. Yet human values and human goods is what make us happy. America and Latin EU, the powerful and the socially evolved nation, the wealthy and the healthy, the nation ruled by abstract economists, primitive ideologies of animetals and digital numbers, or the nation who still reveres human culture (arts, verbal thought), in which there are still certain ideals about the progress of history, and concerned citizens which want to evolve socially, seem to be opposed in many ways.
Which one is a better nation for its citizens? Perhaps we should ask to the neutral people of the world that vote visiting one and the other. Their decision is clear, because despite so much propaganda and hip about the American way of life, provided by its media companies, tourists go to Europe more often, and hardly travel across America…
Those 3 kind of goods are the most desired by man, and yet the most harmful to man. Their regulation should not be given to the market that makes them top predators over human goods, but to a worldwide Government
The Human social organism, is the unit of History, the ∆+1 scale of the world. And so history has the same dualities than humans as individuals.
In that sense we talk of ‘female dominated’ trader informative money oriented societies (China, England, Jewish culture), with the collective mind (the language) made of short, small, easy to combine, cyclical words and…
Warrior, male oriented societies, with long words, energetic lineal weapons as the language of power, often opposed to the previous ones (Arabs, Germans, Spaniards, Japanese).
In true form a proper Human world, will make both cultures complementary as male and female are and avoid the cultural ‘war of the sexes’.
Its 3 organic/networks: Spe≤≥ ST≤≥Tƒ
Human social organisms have a reproductive, economic network, a political, informative network and an energetic base: Gaia.
Thus it would be possible to design a perfect world by designing those networks with the laws of efficient super organisms:
In the graph a biological organism and a sociological super organism such as history is, follow the same laws that all complementary systems of energy and information. So we can observe the parallelism between the elements of a biological and sociological organism, divided into: cells/citizens, joined by blood/economic networks that reproduce and distribute the genetic/memetic products of the system, and informative, nervous/legal networks that organize its structure. All socio-biological systems, including human societies as super organisms, are composed of:
– A herd of similar, cellular species, which in a human society are citizens, joined by 2 type of social networks that serve them, by providing to all and each cell for free with the 2 substances that make up the Universe and its fractal systems, energy for the body and information for the head.
In the human body those energetic networks are the blood and digestive systems that deliver to all cells a Universal salary of oxygen energy so they can all feed and have enough energy to reproduce.
In human societies, those networks are made of digital, monetary orders that initiate the productive process of the economic system, made of factories, roads and river veins that produce the food, and welfare goods, we humans need to survive.
And so a healthy human superorganism should deliver to every citizen-cell a Universal salary in blood-money. So humans can demand and obtain from the economic system those life-based welfare goods, which provide him with their 4 drives of life: energy for their body; information for their mind; social peace and freedom to reproduce and make the organism of history immortal, as the superorganisms of Nature do with all the cells of its super organisms.
To that aim, a global, international currency, which we might call ¥€$-money, born of the fusion of euros and dollars at parity value, with Yens at a 100 rate exchange and Yuans at the rate of 4 Yuans a dollar, becomes the currency of all those nations, which represent 3/4th of the Global GDP. And so money is issued as the oxygen that activates the work and consumption of all its citizens-cells, through a monthly 1000 ¥€$ salary to every citizen of those nations, latter extended to all other global citizens and countries which peg their currency to ¥€$ money, which acquires legal tender in all nations, emitted in bills with $ and €uro equal denominations printed in each side. While Yens become the ‘cents’ of the currency and Yuans, its quarters…
And to that aim the political-nervous system of mankind which organizes the actions of its citizens with legal-simultaneous orders to all its members should control the economic-financial and productive systems, and be reformed to mimic the most perfect superorganisms of nature – the mammal – where the nervous system controls the economic, reproductive system – unlike our capitalist societies, where the financial system controls the political one, and issues its blood, mimicking the most primitive ‘worm-like’ organisms, without a developed nervous network.
IN THE PERFECT WORLD, NEURONAL CASTES of human ethic, verbal masters and experts in systems sciences will rule the world under the choice of democracies, where they will be judged with pain messages at the end of its tenure. A working reproductive class will reproduce the goods of society and the energy of Gaia, will feed us in a sustainable economy.
But we live in an age of extinction, in the Mechanocene so corrupted politicos obey ‘metal masters’, animetals obsessed by money and weapons, which control and degrade mankind with machines:
In the graph, a classic of the pre-war age, we see the initial phase of the Mechanocene and its 3 symbiotic Idol-ogies, capitalism, Militarism & Mechanism and its hierarchical social castes, whereas bankers and its digital language of information, act as the ‘brain’ of the Financial-Media/Military-Industrial Complex, which controls the re=production of machines and weapons and use them along the aforementioned idol-ogies, to control a mass in which NO money is invested, hence does not receive welfare goods.
The previous graph was the I Industrial R=evolution, where the mass of mankind had nothing. Then the use of ‘social sciences’ (welfare states, control of banking) allowed to create a mixed system in which humans receive minimal investments and that was the golden age of modern history (post-war age). But with the arrival of chips and robots which PERFORM THE 2 TASKS OF EARLIER HUMANS, AS CONSUMERS OF OTHER MACHINES AND WORKERS that automatize company-mothers, and soldiers, MOST of the humans in the previous pyramid become obsolete. Only the top 1% has any use for the last phases of the Mechanocene. THUS UNLESS THE SYSTEM IS THOROUGLY REFORMED and investments are deviated from corporations to welfare states, halting further evolution of machines, Humans will become obsolete. But that is NOT possible under the present ‘theories of economics (classic economics’ and History ‘Nationalisms’, which are religions of ‘memes of metal’, not sciences.
Indeed, 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.
In the graph, ‘human societies’ did not evolve in a ‘scientific manner’, creating a well-designed perfect world. They were formed by the ‘struggle for existence’ between human beings, who tried to evolve mankind into a socially efficient, life-oriented welfare system (love religions, social democracies and the like) and elites associated to ‘memes of metals’, money, weapon and machines, whose ‘superior atomic strength and informative capacity’ gave them an added power to control the rest of mankind – what we call biologically ‘animetals’, a term which require a study in depth of the ‘relationship between men and the selfish memes of metal, money, weapons and machines, which humans use to prey over life and other human beings…
3 predatory cult(ure)s: Military, banking, industrial corporative dictatorships vs. true social scientists & Democracies.
In the graph the 3 causes of biological extinction in Nature, Predators, Competitors and Parasites are also the 3 causes of metal’s extinction of life cultures. Since humans attached to metal, ‘animetals’ are the equivalent of Gaia’s 3 extinctive species:
Predators, Competitors and Parasites:
‘Man+weapon’=Warrior Predator; Man+machine=Competitor Animetal & Man+Go(l)d=Banker-Taxation Parasite:
Historic Animetal 3 people-castes: The ‘extinctive species’ of life-based Human Cultures
In graph, in biological fields there are 3 modes of extinction by competitive species, predators that kill the prey, competitors that substitute them in the same econiche and parasites that slowly ‘drain’ its blood-oxygen that activates the cells of the organism. They are akin to the 3 ‘selfish memes of metal’, weapons that kill, machines that substitute our organs of information and energy, and money and those who issue it in monopoly against the democratic rights of people and ‘choke them’, slowly parasitizing them with ‘tax farming’ and usury schemes. They act as the 3 predatory species act in nature:
Weapons and the warrior people-castes ‘predate’ over humans killing them.
Scientific Machines compete with humans displacing them from their eco(nomic) systems
Money and bankers through unfair taxation and debt, parasitizing mankind.
Darwinian power hooks those people-castes to metal, to the Mechanocene, to weapons that kill with the strongest atoms of the Universe, iron; and the most informative ones, money, traditionally an informative type of metal (gold, silver) and now digital information in a metal-mind (e-money), which hypnotized the eye making people slaves of gold (gold fevers) and today as ‘digital information’ values all things mathematically with more precision than words. Thus those who hold weapons and go(l)d have predated historically over other humans.
The military uses ‘energetic metal-weapons’ and so it bullies people: they pay him taxes, work for them or give them the land, or else the warrior kill. This is how the Spanish conquistadors and many others acted. Thus the warrior MUST show the weapons of energy. Since energy MUST be evident, a menace for people to give the warrior all.
The purpose of the banker is the same: to steal all the wealth of a people or nation but he uses ‘informative metal’, and so since in complexity, energy and information have ‘inverse properties’ as your body of energy and head of information do, the procedure is inverse. Information unlike energy is small, invisible, intelligent and complex and must be hidden. You show the sword, but hide your money. Both though are very powerful tools to ab=use people.
So how the banker preys over human beings to get as the warrior does, the wealth, land and work of people or else?.
Once he monopolizes anti-democratically the issue of money, as the warrior does with the issue of weapons, he will produce massive amounts of money which is free to produce (information unlike energy weapons is just a number printed in paper, so you can produce zillions of it at null cost. It is the boom cycle. The banker loans very cheap money, which cost nothing to produce. So he convert all people into ‘debt slaves’. Then he cuts credit, and ask for money to be return no longer in ‘worthless paper’ but in ‘real assets’, in the bust cycle, when they contract the issue of money, to obtain real wealth. And so he ends as the warrior by a different method – usury debt – owning all the wealth of society, getting people to work for them.
And this introduces the much censored ‘real-facts model of History’ and the animetal people-castes and cult(ures) which have associated themselves to the 3 species of metal, energetic metal weapons (warriors and its cultures), informative metal (gold, and silver money and its bankers and cultures), and finally, ‘organic metal’.
Thus as it happens in Nature, where species are extinguished by 3 type of animals, animetal people-castes play exactly those 3 roles as:
– Warriors= ‘energetic predators’ that kill humans and absorb their wealth under penalty of death.
– ‘Parasites’, which absorb their oxygen-money, and control them by changing their DNA (viruses) or injecting them a ‘somatic’ substance that makes them sleepy (the equivalent of our mass-media fictions owned by the same bankers that parasite society taxing it and absorbing the money-oxygen of society).
– And finally competitors that displace the species from its ecosystem, in this case ‘machines’ that displace humans from the labor and war fields of eco(nomic)systems.
Thus History since Genesis was written, under the umbrella of the Tree of Science divided itself between those humans who worship the tree of life – the true scientists of history and economics, from earlier love religions, to socialist movements and welfare states, to this modern ‘complexity science’ that models history with biological and organic laws and those animetal people-castes which worship weapons, money and machines, prey over mankind with them, sometimes in alliance, sometimes in open competition (which provokes wars and holocausts), and their ‘false sciences’ of corrupted scholars that follow the dictum of the anti-quantum paradox: ‘You will defend me with the word and I will defend you with the sword’.
Instead there are 3 Human Values for the sustain of Life a true democracy and real social science must consider sacred:
– JUSTICE, equal laws; FREEDOM, no military repression and WHealth, healthy demand, wealth of welfare goods people need to survive based in a Universal salary and the issue of money for and by the people.
They the 3 GOALS of a Humanist Science (where all humans are equal, hence a Just legal society).
A Socialist economy (where money is issue for and by the people).
And an Organic understanding of mankind and the universe, (where machines are considered evolving organisms and treated accordingly, repressing lethal goods that should not be produced ‘by law’).
This 3 ‘truths’ of Humanity, are the 3 ‘TRUE praxis of real SOCIAL SCIENCES’, nowhere to be seen today in a ‘faked’ world of newspeaks where all is ‘bull$hit’ promoted as ‘caring, politically correct, shrewd science’ covering up for the 3 idol- ogies of the animetal predator people-castes that rule the world for the service of its selfish memes of metal. Those fake idol -ogies are: Capitalism (private issue of money against the basic rights of democracy to control the social languages of power), nationalism (human divided in false subspecies, ‘nations’ which are merely military tribes in perpetual warfare) and Mechanism (substitution of human organs by machines, treated as ‘abstract’ tools, hence with no risk whatsoever) as the ideologies that censor humanity and its future to promote the Mechanocene.
6th isomorphism: Creative diversification: 1,2,3
In the graph we see the perfect world, its political structures and its 7 cultures. What we call the rainbow planet.
The ‘rainbow’ planet is formed by the 7 main cultures of the world, and since it is a cultural association, requires not of army borders, only internal police in each ‘department’ of administration or ‘region’ of the culture. Terminology and newspeak of course in the rainbow planet is positive to peace and comprehension between groups of mankind.
The rainbow planet requires obviously an economic equality between all the members of society to a minimal degree of ‘satisfaction’ of the pyramid of Maslow or Paretto curve of utility which means a global financial UNO based currency which emits a global fiat money, salary of legal tender in all nations of the Rainbow planet, the perfect super-organisms of mankind.
In the graph, we see the diversification of cultures, which happen in the past, as civilizations evolved through social religion of love and sciences of the sentient Universe:
The perfect world would take from those cultures its best part, eliminate from them lethal goods of the Mechanocene and apply the laws and isomorphisms of General systems sciences to design a perfect super organism of mankind.
The rainbow planet
In the lower part of the graph, we show the other side of the perfect world, the Wor(l)d Union, a rainbow Earth, a planet made to the image and likeness of mankind and its 7 main cultural super-organisms.
The integration of those 7 cultural civilizations both at the ∆-1, national scale and the ∆+1 global scale, would design a perfect ‘unit’ for the different varieties of human cultures to flourish in a world designed to maximize human life and information.
. They correspond to the 7 humanist ages/cultures that opposed the 7 cycles of animetal wars (II.16) and can fusion ‘national feelings’. In time order:
- Violet, Black Africa: Pre-metal age: sensorial, life-oriented, where God is Gaia – all the living have souls.
- Orange, Genesian Mosaic Jewish-Protestant, Anglo-America, that should deny its racist go(l)den calf memes.
- Yellow, Mongoloid Asia: Buddhism &Taoism: God is a game of ∞ beings of Yang=Energy & Yin=Information.
4.Red, Hispano-America: Based in Christian’s eusocial love and artistic, sensorial, life oriented memes.
- Green, Islam: Love Religion, focused on God’s Wor(l)d –History’s Tƒ-network. It must deny animetal Jihad.
- 6. Sea Blue, Indonesia: invaded by all Hence its melting pot, focused in Gaia’s ‘sacred water’.
- Deep Blue, Europe based in rational, social-democratic French & Russian R=evolutionary memes.
Its 7 capitals are: Kinshasa, London, Seoul, Panama, Baghdad, Singapore & Brussels + NYC/UNO (latter a new ‘Troy’ between 2 continents), as the World’s capital, where the Heptarchy of Presidents of the 7 civilizations sign a pact of no aggression, demilitarizes the World & governs by majority, establishing the Perfect World and its 3 ministry networks, (right graph), guided by the Human Constitution.
While they handle day-to-day administration to the 1000 Regional ‘organs’ – many of them formed from present States/cities or by dividing nations into manageable ±107 populations, whose ‘governors’ will also form the legislative parliament of the World Union.
As today the Wor(l)d Union’s can only be created by a coup d’état against the dictatorship of the Financial-Media (informative machines)≈Military-Industrial (energy machines) system of global corporations and hired politicos, ruled by Worldstock’s money, by 2 or 3 Presidents of the biggest nations of the World’s leading civilizations, US, China and EU. 3 ‘Lots’ – the perfect number suffices to save the World. If you don’t know how, just read (-:
The Asimovian 3-mules’ announce the foundation of the Rainbow Planet, the Wor(l)d Union, with a 10 years transitional government to build its structures, before elections.
They nationalize all banks, split all corporate shares, keeping 50% and issue to all its citizens the 1st ¥€$ Money salary. Presidents of the biggest 4 nations of the other 4 Civilizations, Brazil, India, Egypt and Nigeria are invited to join the Heptarchy, whose decisions are taken by simple majority. UNO organs act as transitional systems, prior to construction of the World’s networks.
All other UNO nations are asked to join the Wor(l)d Union by pegging their currency to Yes-money, do 50% splits, bank nationalization and sanction as inner laws those issued by the heptarchy, subject to scrutiny by its 7 Supreme Courts, which accept the Human Constitution above all laws, abolished when they oppose its goals.
As nations join the Union, they start to build down into regions and transfer up diplomatic and military power.
While the World Union builds its final structures, the Wor(l)d Government and its 3 physiological networks use enlarged versions of present supranational organizations, refocused in human goals:
-I.e.: An enlarged NATO, under the rule of UNOs security council’s, reformed to fit the heptarchy, becomes the war ministry, dedicated to protect Humanity against Weapons, destroying most – unlike today’s NATO and its military lobbies, whose corporations evolve, overproduce & sell weapons to nations for profit; having no qualms to promote ‘splendid little wars’ in the poorest nations of the World, with the excuse of terrorism, which is dealt instead by Police and Courts and Education. And yet Wars in rogue nations must be quenched.
So Russia, Israel & ISIS come first. They are offered entry in EU & NATO on exchange for inner demilitarization. Russia will accept. Judaism might not. Since today it rules the capitalist world through its majority stock-holding of Worldstock corporations. ISIS won’t.
Thus, the heptarchy’s Global army of 7 million will invade ISIS, occupy Palestine and ask ‘a last time’ Judaism to abandon its racist Talmud’s ‘Chosen of Go(l)d memes’ and reform. Humanity is our Only true Social God-Mind of the Whole Species, above all cultural minor Avatars.
Thus Racist religions and nationalisms have no place in the Wor(l)d Union and face memetic (not genetic) ban. North Korea & Iran follow suit…
Above, in the graph, we showed the political structure of an advanced phase of the World Union:
The neuronal brain of the World Union is made of Politicians & Ethonomists, Doctors of the Superorganism of history, which study Systems sciences and the laws of the organic Universe – and direct the 3 ‘physiological systems’ or ‘Ministries’ of mankind.
They are also heptarchies formed by the fractal branches of its 7 civilizations, which handle most work to its lower social scales, its demilitarized ∑∆-1 Regions, similar to modern states and cultures.
Political parties and lobbies that invent Laws with wishful thinking to foster selfish agendas are forbidden.
The Laws of the Human Constitution are researched by Ethonomists & Bio Historians, proposed by the Supreme Court, voted by a Global 103 parliament, made of the Elected a priori and Judged a posteriori Presidents of the 1000 regions of the World; and finally enacted by the executive action of its 7 Cultural Presidents.
How to design those civilizations and the global super organism would be a simple task if humans were ‘all for it’, as the laws of super organisms offer not difficulty.
Simple immediate measures: the nationalization of all financial, ‘blood’ networks, the creation of a global ‘yes’ money salary to all humans to create a demand economy that would multiply human goods, the legal prohibition of the robotic industry that conflicts with humans in labor and war fields, the inversion of ‘powers’ in democracies between the judicial system above the political system, with politicians subject to ‘pain messages’ a posteriori in case to fail their ‘contract promises’. And so on.
It is very easy to create such a perfect ideal world in paper and it is perhaps the most astonishing fact of ‘social sciences’ to the service of ‘animetal’ (military & financial) power, that social sciences have never reached a degree of scientific analysis to make such program for a perfect world explicit in the past, at least when humans had a big chance to implement it.
Today the perfect world is – I am conscious – an utopia, as humans have become slaves of machines and their brains controlled by ‘the medium’ and its ‘technological messages’. Yet the perfect world must exit in a sizeable number of planets… of the fractal Universe, where the super organism of history has been properly created and designed.
As such the perfect world is a planet in which all men are equal despite its cultural differences, and dedicate their lives to enhance their existence as human, socio-biological beings, in its 3 spheres of existence, the biological, survival sphere, for which ethonomic sciences provide enough welfare goods to survive, the human, individual sphere, for which the proper information allows to develop a full human being, and the social sphere, in which an efficient government, create the conditions to prosper.
Such perfect worlds exist in infinite planets that have not destroyed themselves under the parasitic rule of ‘animetal cultures’ of warriors and debt-bankers.
As such perfect worlds have evolved socially through the scales of eusocial evolution of mankind into an immortal super-organism of history: an efficient world designed with the law of superorganisms, imitating nature, with no parasite cancerous cultural organs (bankers, warriors and animetal people-castes) on top of the organism, sucking its energy in wars and labor fields for the service of machines and its information with debt-money.
The perfect world is a planet where humans thrive, either because men are moral enough to control the negative energy/information of selfish memes of metal and control its evolution, or because there is simply no metal, no weapons, no technology in such planets.
In both cases the perfect world evolves departing from the natural eusocial collective human minds of a non-technological world, the 7 cultures of mankind, whose origin in the evolution of subconscious collective gods of mankind is explained elsewhere in this text.
7th Isomorphism: Its ages and evolution: Spe≥ST≥Tƒ
History unfortunately is dying since, ‘animetal species’ evolving the Mechanocene are destroying Gaia and ignore the design of the perfect world:
Indeed, those who rely on iron brute force and monetary corruption, won hands-on hand the wave of History, which we study from the beginning of man trough all its cultures, with special emphasis in its cycles, ‘languages of the mind’ (art, word, digital money) and ruling cultures (those who first found money and weapons, semites and germans, on the side of metal, and those who resist with legal power):
In graphs, the 800-80 years cycles of overproduction and evolution of ‘memes of metal’ (entropic weapons, informative money and organic machines) which HAVE STRUCTURED HISTORY in the past 5000 years since the discovery of hard bronze and silver-gold money completely transformed history from its neolithic age of balance with life in a sustainable planet into the ‘vortex of informative, technological evolution’ that after the acceleration of professional company-mothers of machines, invented in the 1600s, has become the absolute dominant factor of both systems, economics and history COMPLETELY DOWNPLAYED by the ego and anti quantum paradox of subjective human social ‘pseudosciences’.
Those cycles that have built a super organism of machines are analysed in depth in the left side, as well as in the study of each of the 7 great geographic cultures of humanity, in the right side dedicated to history, as all of them were in the old world destroyed at the end of each cycle but an age of overproduction of weapons and global wars; clearly breaking cultures into ‘civilisations’ that died away in an age of baroque art, formal angst and prophetic thought, which was first understood by Vico and then systematised by Spengler and Toynbee, two of the key scientists of history, the first aware that art was the subconscious collective of civilisations, which ‘foresaw’ in angst the demise of a civilisation. So we had the following ages of global death by overproduction of machines fuelled by the use of money to mass-produce them in industrial processes:
- The age of bronze swords: ±3000-2000, carried by semite cult(ure)s
- The age of bronze chariots: ±2000-1200 carried by Indo-Europeans
- The age of Iron swords: ±1200-400; carried by Indo-Europeans
- The age of coins and mercenary armies: -400+400, or Greek-Roman age
- The age of spurs and chivalry: +400, 1200; dominated first by Asian nomads, then by Germans and Arabs
- The age of gunpowder, 1200-1945, dominated by Europe
- The age of digital weapons, 1945… as the A-bomb was calculated by the first computers, followed by robots.
8th isomorphism: its whole world cyclethe cycles of evolution of history
10th Isomorphism: Its planes of Existence: ∆±4 Fractals
The sciences of Humanity deal with human systems, in its individual and 3 network scale, ranging from psychology to medicine and in its ∆+1 scale, as a Super-Organism with its sub-species, civilizations, and its collective minds (religions and art).
Human Systems are in that regard like all other systems of the Universe 10 Dimensional Super-Organisms.
And so we define the World of Man and all its elements with a Generator Equation, which we write with the symbolism of Existential Algebra translated to the specific ‘varieties’ of mankind:
Wor(l)d=∑∆-1(homo sapiens genome)»∆-human actions«∏∆+1 Gods of History
Whereas humanity through all its scales is one of the ‘Infinite Worlds’, U=∞W of the universe, a variety of its fractal generator.
Thus will have a finite number of ‘sub-disciplines’ each one studying a partial equation of the Whole Human Universe, and we shall slowly introduce them all in this section.
Let us then consider all the sub-sciences of Human Systems, starting by the upper, ∆+1 social scale of mankind, the realm of Social sciences.
∆+1: Social sciences.
All systems do have a social scale, the ∆+1 scale of which they have the ‘minimal information’, as they cannot ‘perceive’ the Whole of which they are a part, performing some ‘network’ function of energy-reproduction-information (the 3 space-time bidimensional actions which all entities of the Universe perform in each of its ∆-scales of existence).
Thus social sciences deals with the ‘peculiar’ perception of the Universe, from ‘below’ to ‘above’, from the individual to the social whole of which he is a part.
There is though a specific ‘discipline’ of social sciences, which deals with the human super organisms of history and economics, the ‘wholes’ of which we are always a part. And needless to say this should be the more important of all social sciences, as it concerns us. Again, this specific type of social sciences, which studies the human superoganism can be divided roughly into:
– Ecological sciences that deal with Gaia, planet Earth, the ‘∆-1’ energetic network in which humans, cells of the super organism of history survive.
– Cultural, religions and political sciences, which deal with the informative verbal networks that rule mankind and its social organizations, religious civilizations or industrial nations.
But social sciences in the case of mankind must be inscribed in the ‘evolution’ of its higher reality, planet Earth. And then its jumps the surprise because in this planet Humanity is only a stage of evolution, as the Earth comes from a world of life, Gaia, into a super organism of humans, history, but now is evolving into a super organism of machines, the industrial world. So we wrote a temporal equation, the paradox of history:
Past (Gaia-Life earth)< History-present (Human earth) > Future: Economics (Mechanocene, Earth of machines).
And study that equation from a real perspective – how the evolution is happening with the consequences of extinction of life and historic, non-technological civilizations; and from a human perspective, how to manage the transition between the Anthropocene and the Mechanocene to the service of mankind. Those are the themes we will deal with in this article.
Humans should evolve into the rainbow planet through the natural scales of social evolution, but the creation of the Mechanocene has aborted that evolution:
