I've just had a moment like this..and after someone said to me in a comment about their dream they had once..we ( bloggers) are like gunners in a war..we keep lobbing shots into the beast..individually weakening it...little by little chipping away and exposing the truth. The purposely hidden truth. This is why i am posting this up today..This is a bit of blogging sniping..again..I could spend all day on the site where this was "borrowed" i hope the Author doesn't mind.
It's a long post...let us begin..there are thee parts in all..X-Y-Z generations. the end of humanity as we "know" it
THE X GENERATION:When a super-organism dies, as History is dying, the cells become unconnected since the first network to collapse is the informative, ‘nervous’ network of the system, which in humans systems is the ‘ethic, verbal network’ of eusocial love. The unconnected cells then increase its selfish, individual in-take of blood and water. They have ‘fun’ as they become erased of mental power.
This happened to history with the X-generation to which I belong. The X-generation, unlike the WE generation that preceded it is a lonely, tormented one if it still has an ethic, intellectual sense of what was human – what we call here the SOS-man, or a complete jerk, reassured by the success of the ego trips he obtains from the consumption of machines. This, overwhelming type of the X-generation, believes totally in Fictional-Capitalist-Mechanist-Nationalistic memes that have killed the superorganism of history and so it considers the ‘death of history’ and its ethical networks a ‘release’ in total freedom.
And yet ‘FuCMaN’ is the first truly mass-manufactured crazy human being, decided to carry those ideologies of Fiction, Capitalism, Mechanism and Nationalism to its ultimate consequences.
The We, Hippie generation failed to r=evolve the world, but at best tried and at worst have fun experience with different forms of eusocial love.
But Fucman is the first man who truly only loves himself. The X-Generation is the first generation of hopeless, self-suicidal, globalized, self-obssesed human beings. And as in all those generations, Fucman represents the majority of mankind, with some, few, as always ‘thinking, free’ human beings, who instead of believing the manufactured mind sold by the system, explores, thinks, reasons and wonders how to survive and save the world. So the X-Generation is also the origin of the ‘S.O.S. man’, the humanist thinkers who renews the Socialist/Organicist/Scientific new wave vision of a Sustainable world. Sustainability/Socialism, Organicism/Scientificism could save the world and the SOS man tries to explain this to the world. But trust me, he goes against the natural flow of history towards extinction. So most humans like most old people prefer to be ‘crazy’ and fight Not against extinction, prefer to believe the demential world of FuCMaN and his ideologies studied in the right side of this web. So fiction for the first time imposes itself as the ‘cool’ way of being human, believing in the FuCMaN triad of evil, anti-life memes, as if they truly matter.
As I grew within the X-generation I have observed how young, intelligent people became Fucmen, resurrecting all the wrong memes of history, leaning towards neocon, nihilist, primitive cultures and enjoying it. The SOS man indeed is evermore lonely each year, ever more abandoned and ignored as the Zeigeist of self-suicide imposes its memes and fictions, fundamentalist religions and dogmas to the rest of mankind. FuCMan is indeed the essence of the X-generation and the first clear proof that the Super-organism of history and its neuronal networks of ethic words that maintained it put together has collapsed, that History had died even if FuCMaN, the new, selfish, individual, unconnected cells of History still survive.
In any dead super-organism, once the collective subconscious is broken by the leukemia of a new, viral DNA-code, in the human super-organism, the leukemia of the ideologies of capitalism-nationalism and mechanism that make us work for the future of machines, not the future of man, there are still 3 possible cellular sub-divisions of the cell, 3 days (hence the myth of resurrection of Jesus, the 3rd day, as the body still keeps part of its cellular activity). Yet the body is dead, the nervous system – which is the ethic system in a super-organism of history, that makes all cells share energy and information together under a common belief on eusocial evolution – is gone. So the X-Generation suffers suddenly that pain of death. And then the next generations are already unconnected without feelings of angst or suffering, without messages of pain from the brain. There is no regret, as the cells feast into the water and blood of the body, reaching a rigor mortis. Those will be the Y and Zero generation of ‘homo bacteria’, once the ‘homo organicus’ with a sense of community and belonging, able to sacrifice for the common goods is gone.
The x-generation is thus the main generation which suffers in its highest minds – mostly artists and priests of love religions – the angst of perceiving the death of the super-organism of History. We saw when we were kids, terminator, and we knew that was it, that was the natural, darwinian end of the Industrial R=evolution. We have been active fighting the demise of the world; participating in environmental causes, help agencies to the III world, making documentaries to warn the previous generations – too involved in the system to understand – or the next generations, too fictional to grasp any truth.
But most members of the x-generation had a great time. They felt the death of history as their liberation into chaos, confused by freedom, as they became selfish, isolated cells. Most just tried to get rich and enjoy life, once religion, society, nation became meaningless words. Most of the X-generation erased themselves consciously to embrace as only value money, the market and all the happy lies they were sold to.
This is my generation and as the best of my time has passed i can understand how little impact the angst of writers and artists and activists has had in the rest of the population. In my first book, ‘radiations of space-time: the extinction of man’, now 20 years old, in which I laid down both the model of Universal super-organisms of spatial energy and temporal information and its application to history and the 2 paths of future (extinction or revolution) left to mankind, I signed my account number and X-generation, as I felt nothing but an ‘account number’ a credit number for the system. The most brilliant men of my ‘Columbian U.’ generation went to work in Wall Street. None wanted to care for the Earth. All knew the earth was dying and most knew they were the people who killed it with their corporations and search for profits. But they knew they wouldn’t feel the pinch when young and they never cared for the future generations. They had little ‘empathy’. They rejected the ‘we’ generation of soft love that solved nothing. We preferred to be punks if protesters, to take cocaine to pump our ego and freed, to the dreams of LSD. We bought always instead of asking. We are the generation of the funky music, no longer concerned with love ballades, the readers of Camus and Bukovsky, the ones that don’t care anymore, or in the case of the highest artistic minds, the ones of eternal angst.
This duality between the angst of a few and the greed of most resumes the meaning of our generation, which lived the 80s and 90s – equivalent to the happy 20s. Those of us who cared, were the last ones who read books in paper, who were mature enough to understand.
In art, we were the equivalent to the isms, the european Baroque, the informative old age of a culture. Now we belonged to the American baroque, the Global Baroque, the formal, old age of any super-organism. Because the future looks bad, content doesn’t matter. It is all in the form and the makeup, because the content is rotten.
The X generation is the transitional generation that carries the angst that engulfs any thinking human, still not deactivated by the don’t worry be happy matrix of fictions about I-me and myself in which most dissolved human homo bacteria of the last Y and Zero generation will live. We still knew that the homo organicus was a better kind of man.
We are not all yet ‘free to be idiots’ (punk song); we are not all yet erased and degraded mentally into the neo-paleolithic; we are nostalgic, we dream inwards a better world, since we have no power. And when the few of us who are accepted by the system – which distrusts deeply the last generations of the species, as they are still optimist about the future - get to power, the ‘thing’ will be so fucked up that frankly only radical surgery could perhaps revive the corpse of mankind. And those who are inheriting the Earth will not do radical surgery. They will be merely like their ‘fathers’ but less subtle, more brutal, more impatient with the 99%, which they will kill as fa$cism grows. The first members of this generation in power, Obama, who just signed the Patriot Act II for Americans to be detained at will; the young president of Syria, who is massacring his people with null finesse, are people with zero interest in changing the system. The system of extinction of mankind and life – capitalism – is for them a giving fact of “nature” too complex to understand. They just wish there were no problems at all and the system were automatic, so they had more time to keep having fun like in the 90s. Those were the days… they will always think nostalgic. Perhaps the best novel about them were those written by…. Fitzgerald and Miller in the parallel generations of the 20s/30s, since now nobody reads. And films are ‘mechanical’ FX films with no relationship to reality.
THE Y GENERATION
We live in the last stages of the Neopaleolithic - the process of extinction of the social super-organisms of history, as humans regress to an infantile, visual, violent era of individual selfish, emotional ‘Homo Bacteria’ proper of the earlier youth of man, before the arrival of logic, rational thought, started by the Greek enlightened age.
When a social system dies away, its cells become unconnected by the nervous/informative/ethic systems that preserve life and make individual cells share rightful energy and information among them. Then death comes and the 3 last ‘generations’ of the organism become during the 3 last relative days of life of the organism, individual selfish cells that feast on the blood and water of the organism, before the ‘viruses’, the ‘stronger’ new species that invades the body kills them all.
Then suddenly the party will be over, the freedom of the cells that feasted will finish and the viruses or insects of hard-skin will kill each cell.
In societies those viruses are the new warrior species that overproduce weapons and reduce the common people to prisoners of war. And so every cycle of the 800-80 years fractal vortex of historic information death finally comes.
Mankind entered when Nietzsche said ‘God has died’, during the Industrial Revolution in his last 3 generations, as a new species, the machine=weapon invades our social organisms, divide us in ever smaller groups, infect our mind with its values of greed and murder, hypnotism to money and violence, and finally we shall all die to the hands of the A.I. Terminators of the future.
We are in the Y generation and there is only one generation to go, the zero generation. That is the zeitgeist of the age, and every news we hear show how the last human generations enter its selfish, degraded, terrified times, but the terminators are still not here.
So we have the usual thugs, Jihadist criminals, police, armies, multiplying everywhere, while the first robotic terminators, automated police cars, vigilante drones, gun-eyes (cameras with killing skills) are being born in secret military labs.
Meanwhile any hope of a social resurrection of the memes of love that put together the cells of a super-organism are gone. Blogs like this one that evolves social sciences, books of classic human social thinkers, well-known principles of ethics have increasingly reduced followers. Nobody talks of the real causes of this crisis because nobody reads anymore. They only hear and listen the viral DNA-code of the invading machine – violent hate media. We are indeed in the same period that when Mussolini and Hitler became stars of radio-hate. But now it is all much more overwhelming. The machine of information that imprint our minds with hate and selfish greed, violence and idiocy is far more evolved.
The yes/why generation.
The Yes/Why Generation is the generation of the ‘social networks’, according to the propaganda of technology. If in the 60s the We generation thought that the revolution would be televised and stayed home watching the riots on the screen, the why generation seems less passive, as the internet, now in process of censorship with the excuse of copyright issues and cyberterrorism, has allowed spontaneous organization of groups; but this is a drop in an ocean of trivialization. Most Y-people will never ask why, except the few indignados, which wonder why we destroy the world.
The rest of the Y-generation will follow the trends of dissolution into simplified ‘homo bacteria’ started by the We Generation. For them,
the I-me-myself will be absolute. They will not have any interest beyond the ego, and so their social capacity will be even more reduced, as they become idle, virtual personalities, connected through machines with null interest for ‘history’ and ‘mankind. You will never gather them into a r=evolving mass. You will not get them to sacrifice for mankind. The Y-generation is softy, as it has spent his youth watching funny fictions. Truth matters far less than happiness and their protests are non-violent, non-organized. In their occupy movement they were dissolved with a couple of pepper sprays and all what they did instead of assaulting the Bastille of capitalism at OWS was a bit of victimism and a lot of recording with i-phones posting on u-tube.
They didn’t die, they didn’t occupy wall street, they did not change history.
The Why generation will be an easy target for the corrupted We-Generation – now fully embracing the neo-con culture in power – which brushed them aside.
But most of the people of the Y-generation will be just ‘Yes people’. Increasingly robotized, deeply obedient to power and their religious and politico leaders, their dwindling mental skills makes them perfect for the neofa$cist indoctrination of this age.
In that sense the ‘Yes-people’, the overwhelming majority of this generation is akin to the ‘uniform’ generation that populated the world in the 30s.
They come with ‘manufactured consent’ imprinted on them.
Their vitality is also in the decrease. They are the first dead souls, zombies, with no ethical responsibility, and they know it subconsciously. Unlike our generation who still thought on the future and understood its dangers and made Terminator the best-grossing film of the future, the Yes-people love the ‘eclipse’ series, zombie films and gore. They know they are somehow the living dead. The super-organism of history is indeed dead. Some of the Y-generation know that go(l)d and the machine has killed it all. But those are hardly 1-10%. The rest simply have a strong rejection of the system and those who they think represent it – politicians. Of course, they know nothing about bankers and their power. They are yes-people and they are manufactured. So most of them will be kept entertained, most of them will have no jobs, most of them will not care. Their lives will be reduced increasingly to what an Homo Bacteria cares for – its daily life, its immediate family, its survival. They are the first ‘unconnected’ people perfectly connected to the Matrix of Fictions that satisfy their meager need of contact with other human beings.
Their verbal, social ‘DNA’ is null. Most brains of the Y-generation are ‘cancerous’, leukemia cells infected with the code of the machin, with their minds erased by the dont worry be happy fictions of the mass-media matrix and the techno-utopians of children of thought doing robots and playing call of duty.
This is indeed the Matrix Generation, the irreal, ilogic, innocent, i-me and myself, plastic bodies, with neo-paleolithic, verbally retarded, aggressive, visual, baroque, gore tastes.
This generation will not be able to change the world. At best the indignados ask, but they are so few they cannot break or change the system. We the pensive X-generation were few, most already colonized by big borther smiley, but now? Probably less than 10% in the most educated western parts of the world (Southern Europe, Britain, Scandinavia and New England) understand anything of what is going on.
The rest are just brutes, connected, with ADD, thinking friends are virtual names in facebook, that revolution is going to a solidarity concert, who give all their personal information to big brother facebook connected to all the corporations of the world, because they really think they are that interesting. They fuck a lot but have no children, they talk a lot but have no meaning, they protest a lot but have no action.
They are the very same essence of what Hemingway told to Dietrich: ‘you confuse movement with action’. The Universe is made of actions of spatial energy and temporal form, energy and information. This people have the wrong information and move a lot, under the command of the queues of the mental machines that educate them. So they waste their time, their energy, with meaningless actions.
A deeper analysis. The obsolete generation
In depth, this article on the surface of ‘it’ as everything i write these days, requires an understanding of human social classes within the super-organisms of history and economics. Since we, human ‘cells’ are always part of two of such super-organisms:
A human culture based in life-memes and a metal-nation based in metal-memes(weapons, borders, currencies, nationalist, capitalist and mechanist ideologies).
In the super-organisms of machines we are despite or because we ‘believe’ in capitalism/mechanism/nationalism, basically ‘slaves’ that reproduce money, weapons and machines (the meaning of progress in those 3 ideologies).
In that sense as members of an ‘industrial nation’ we work for ‘the machine’s will’, for the evolution and reproduction NOT of mankind but of the metal-earth’s machines, ‘guided’ by their company-mothers, corporations that indoctrinate us about the ‘values’ of consumption and re=production of machines. And this is what the Yes people hear, listen to and desire: to do exactly what their TV-role models tell them to do.
So the yes people as all human industrial generations are consumers=vitalizers of machines and workers=reproducers of machines. But the Yes people cannot really fulfill that ‘industrial dream’ of the ‘human slave’, hypnotized and obsessed by the ‘added’ energy and information that machines give us. Because the Yes generation is entering the robotic wave, in which corporations and robots will be consumers and self-reproducers of machines (automated factories), which no longer need ‘us’. The Yes generation is the first fully obsolete human generation, which really is no longer needed in the Metal-Earth. They and their sons, the zero people are no longer relevant to the future of this planet. The Yes generation will be entering power, when the second and third serious chances of extinction (nano-bacteria; A.I.) appears. But they will merely follow with their ‘white matter’ brains, the instructions, as if they were piloting a complex machine, not creating it. And indeed, they will be just overwhelmed trying to ‘drive’ the Metal-Earth, which they will hardly understand.
While in the cultural arena, by the paradox of history (Max. Technological evolution = Minimal eusocial evolution) they will be long increasingly to devolving, ever more primitive ‘religious cults’, looking backward into the past (religious fundamentalisms). In other words, the Yes generation will be totally freak both in culture and in national tasks, in a world increasingly alien to mankind, as our world is to the animal life we substituted.
In the jargon of biological history, we all humans were in our ‘capitalist nations’, ‘consumers=animetals’ that vitalize ‘memes of metal’. As ‘workers=reproducers’ we are ‘enzymen’, enzymes that catalyze the evolution of those machines, who spend most of our existence working for the will of reproduction and life of the machine world. And all this we did it under the ‘imprinting of our mind’ by the ideologies of mechanism, capitalism and nationalism that make us think that ‘is the right thing to do’.
But now under the robotic revolution, we are no longer needed as consumers – since robots consume machines – or as workers, since robots are increasingly self-reproductive, specially in the two leading ‘industries’ of those future robots (cars and chips).
So each generation has basically in the industrial world a mind imprinted by audiovisual memes that adapt her to the exigences of company-mothers of machines; what they want us to consume and to work on. And the problem of course, is that the Yes Generation is no needed as worker or consumer, and so before it becomes ‘extinguished’, it will be kept with ‘pan et circensis’ and virtual techno-utopias and ‘cheap’ trash food, at minimal cost.
The yes generation is thus consuming virtual war and learning to ‘love’ robots, which is part of the programming to ensure their smooth extinction (robot movies, 3-dimensional entertainment, violent movies, ‘war on terror’. propaganda, etc)
Yet we are also part of ‘cultures’, with old memes belonging to ‘super-organisms of history’, which are not nations, the basic unit of organization of machines, weapons in the borders, economic ecosystems inside, flows of money, legal bodies dedicated to ‘the progress of technology’ etc, but cultures, of religious and social origin, hence we must account for the present state of cultures such as Islam, ‘rational europe’, social-communism, etc. Unfortunately the paradox of history implies that all those cultures are ‘degraded’ today, ‘infected’ with the virus of violence and go(l)d corruption (inquisitions, fundamentalisms, go(l)d churches). So the Yes generation will not be ‘enlightened’ by culture, but further degraded, as ‘humanist culture’ is censored and ignored. Farenheit 451 is not needed. The TV has killed the word and with the word the wor(l)d of man.
The famous 8 hours to work (to construct the metal-earth), 8 hours to play (to live the memes of life of the superorganisms of history) and 8 to dream (to enter the lower plane of cellular existence which renews the energy and reconverts at cellular level the processes created in those superorganisms and social structures) is now quite reduced. Because we ‘consume metal-information’, suffering long hours after job, the creation and imprinting by mass-media systems of our mental anti-life memes – the DNA of the virus of the metal-earth.
This is not a comparison but we argue, as always in this web and books, that biological economics IS REAL and we must only translate the laws of biology and superorganisms to the jargon of history and economics to obtain laws, forecast the future and understand all collective events of mankind beyond the simplest reproductive, family units, through those analysis, with a determinism shwon in the fractal scale of the cycles of history and economics.
Sciences are predictable, and the fact that history and economics are BIOLOGICAL, systemic sciences that describe superporganisms of history and memes of metal allow us to do so.
All this said, the organic structure shows clearly in all those generations. There are therefore 4 key sub-generations:
- In the Metal-earth, the Yes generation that will obey the mandates and imprintings of ‘Matrix’, the computer-visual-audio-media conglomerate of memes of hate against life that create the mind of the ‘virally’ infected minds of the last human generations – our kids in the 1st world.
Those people are the Yes, robotized, social network addicted, who live virtually their emotions.
- Their informative castes will not be really the human managers and owners of those corporations, themselves programmed by absurd memes mostly of biblical origins, but the ‘medium is the message’, thus the violent evolution of robotic minds and tv-images, who are building the future top predator programs of robotic weapons in video-games act as the ‘real mind’. Their fathers and human masters are totally irrelevant to them.
All organic systems have two type of basic cells, networks of information and its ’0.9-9%’ class of creators and managers of information; and the body of energy cells, herds of energy and its 90% of sheeple.
This happens also in cultures and nations, where the informative and energetic castes the 10/90% to simplify have totally idfferent functions and mines. This of course is the origin of social classes.
The generations of mankind thus could be in depth split in two, the attitude of the 10% and that of the 90%. But as we all become imprinted increasingly by the natural evolution of machines in a subconscious way, all become baroque neo-paleolithic, single mind, the split blurs in cultural terms. We all think the same in the west – we all want to be smileys, and enjoy the ego-trips of consuming machines; and in the dying super-organisms of history we all become another kind of yes people, suffering the angst of dying, old religions.
- On the other side in the part of human superorganisms of history, life is ‘regressing’ from the heights of the last ‘prophet-savior’, the Socialist school that followed Marx and Kondratieff masterpiece descriptions of the sciences of history and economics, of which this web is the last small evolution, back into the less predictable, less ‘connected’ to modern reality superorganisms of religions.
It must be understood that humans NEED to belong to a super-organism. The majority today belong to MATRIX, and their fictions among which the fiction of freedom and NOT belonging to superorganisms of history. So most people think to live in Matrix is funnier and more cool than to belong to a primitive religion of social love. This is not the case.
Of course, it would be better to belong to an evolved ‘scientific’ body of history, the wor(l)d union, designed by scientists of history but that is over. It was over when Stalin killed 20 million r=evolutionaries and converted Marxism in a military dictatorship with no similarity whatsoever with the ‘project’ of a science of history.
So people who still believed in social love regressed to religions of love (buddhism, Islam and Christianity) in its ‘pure versions’ (decoupling of ‘big vehicles’ and ‘purer, smaller versions’, catholicism vs. Orthodox, Sunny vs. Shiite, Mahayana vs. theravada). If you add the split of the socialist school into ‘social-democracies’ (big vehicle) and the purist Communist parties (small vehicle), most humans today will co-exist in primitive or dying, inquisitiorial phases of the 3+1 ages of the collective subconscious mind of religions of love with their mandates to share energy and information among believers and create a global super-organism of mankind.
That is we will all in the realm of religion and social life see with growing indifference or angst the death of our ‘super-organisms’ of God.
Those 3 x 2 decouplings/ages/phases of the understanding of the super-organism of God=Love, studied elsewhere in my books of history (might some day health and interest permitted me to re-introduce those posts here), are still gathering pace, receiving the last left-overs of the deluge and death of the social-democratic superorganism of history with the victory of capitalism and the fall of the wall that ‘protected’ hte pure socialist, non-materialist, poor, regressive non-mechanical world of social countries.
They are further on in ‘inquisitorial’, defensive, dying ways. And so in the last robotic cycle there would be a huge mass of the 90% of mankind in suffering entering the mystique, baroque age of thoese religions. So we shall have the yes-happy dont worry virtual generations, Y and zero of human ‘kids’ attached to machines; its ‘dolce fare niente’, never have-it-better super-rich castes of germanic and Am Segullah nations with the property of machines and corporations, and then in the other ‘side’ of the World, in the world fo life super-organisms, a mass of suffering believers in pre-socialist religions, with a non-scientific outlook and ‘outdated’ memes without capacity to confront the economic ecosystem.
All in all they will also be yes people of another myths, unable to confront reality evading themselves not in video-games but in after-death dreaming.
And their guidance, primitive, violent, emotional priests. Of course, there woudl still ‘priests of evolved mankin’, some artists and writers like this blog, which wll be mostly invisible. And so those 2 groups will find ‘reasons’ to keep focusing on ‘human divides’, and the kids of the techno-utopia will hate and despise the poor of the primitive religions, and war on terror will continue, as the kids learn to manage drones at distance practicing now video game murder on real human targets with virtual screens. The next stage of evolution of hate-memes and extinctive murder, when the zero generation will be out of the loop, will be performed robots doing that personally, playing ‘Call of duty’ in real scenarios with real human targets. The robotized like-humanoid characters of those video games will be ‘real robots’ performing hunting programs in the future out-of-the loop wars of the middle of the century.
Some of those people of the Yes generation will be though the Why generation, youngsters who have ‘studied’ sciences of history and have ethics and are wondering ‘why we destroy the earth’. The last activists of ecological causes, the addicts to the big heat (global warming) scare.
Those will be the last free minds that understand something. Since even though ’humanist cultures and social, love-religion based civilizations’ (human super-organisms) are different entities thatn ‘inquisitions, go(l)d churches, nations and other ‘animetal’ super-organisms of metal-memes. Today we are all part/time ‘human enzymen and animetal, their ‘biological slaves’, guided by emotional, ‘pheromonical’ ‘memetic’ imprinting – using the jargon of comparative biology, as both structures follow the same laws in two different scales of the ‘Systemic Universe’.
