      1 THE COGNITIVE BIG BANG. THE ORIGINAL ABSTRACTION.

      1.1 About 300,000 years ago under conditions unknown and affected by a stimulus unidentified, man developed the ability to imagine. For the first time in history, the human imagined.

      1.2 FOR THE FIRST TIME A HUMAN BEING DEVELOPED THE CAPACITY TO COGNICISE, TO CONCEIVE, AND TO REPRODUCE[1] A COMBINATION OF IMAGES FROM MEMORY.

      1.3 Humans called these radically new properties of the human mind “imagination” and the “ability to imagine”.[2]

      1.4 HUMANS DON’T UNDERSTAND THE IMAGINATION. ITS ORIGINS ARE UNKNOWN TO THEM. THEREFORE, THEY ARE UNAFRAID OF USING THE PRODUCTS OF IMAGINATION WITH BOLDNESS AND GRIT.

      1.5 “REALITY” IS WHAT THE HOMO SOCIOLOGICUS CALLS THE AGGREGATE OF ALL THE PRODUCTS OF IMAGINATION OVER TIME ​[3].

      1.6 THE ACTUAL, THE REAL, THE PRESENT, THE OBJECTIVE - THESE ARE PRODUCTS OF THE “SPACE OF IMAGINATION”. THEY ARE IMAGES, IDEAS AND THOUGHTS THAT COME FROM A CONCRETE MIND AT A CONCRETE MOMENT IN TIME. ALL THIS IS FAR GREATER THAN THE WORLD PERCEIVED BY THE HUMAN BODY.

      1.7 THE REALITY BASED SOLELY ON A HUMAN’S PHYSIO-SENSORY APPARATUS IS ASTONISHINGLY PRIMITIVE.

      1.8 IF WE SUBTRACT THE SUM OF OUR IMPRESSIONS OF THE WORLD, AND FEELINGS WHICH WERE CREATED BY OUR BIOLOGICAL ORGANS, A VAST UNIVERSE OF COMPLEX PHENOMENA REMAINS THAT HAS NO BIOLOGICAL ORIGIN. WE CALL THIS “REALITY”.

      1.9 The human was created by imagination.

      1.10 THE HUMAN “REALITY” CAME FROM IMAGINATION. THIS HAPPENED AT THE MOMENT OF THE COGNITIVE BIG BANG – A EUREKA MOMENT WHEN THE FIRST ACT OF IMAGINATION OCCURRED.

      1.11 A SPARK APPEARED. THE SPACE OF THOUGHT WAS BORN. THE CONCEPT OF THE SELF EMERGED, ALONG WITH THE UNIQUENESS OF THE HUMAN BODY, ITS DISTINCTION, INDIVIDUALITY AND PERSONALITY. ABSTRACT THOUGHT AND THE CAPACITY TO OBSERVE THE IMMATERIAL IN THE PHYSICAL, VERIFIABLE WORLD HAD BEGUN.

      1.12 IMAGINING THE SELF GAVE RISE TO “REALITY”[4], CONSCIOUSNESS, AND THE SENSATION OF ONE’S OWN EXISTENCE WITHIN A SPACE.

      1.13 HUMANS MUST FACE UP TO AND EMBRACE THE OMNIPOTENT, CREATIVE POWER OF THEIR OWN MINDS: IMAGINATION.

      1.14 IMAGINATION SPARKED AN INFINITE SPACE - THE INFINITE “REALITY”.

      1.15 THE BASIC ELEMENT OF THIS REALITY IS ABSTRACTION. IT DOES NOT COME FROM OUR BODY’S SENSES, THUS IS NOT OF THE PHYSICAL REALM [5]. IT ORIGINATES IN THE DEPTH OF THE HUMAN MIND. ABSTRACTION IS THE FUNDAMENTAL FEATURE OF THE DESIGN WHICH PEOPLE CALL “REALITY”.

      1.16 THE HUMAN RACE TODAY IS AN AMALGAMATION OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE PRIMAL, COGNITIVE BIG BANG. IT IS AN UNFOLDING OF THAT FIRST ABSTRACTION - THE ANCESTOR OF THE ABSTRACT HUMAN MIND.

      2 A cognitive model of the world.
      “Reality”.

      2.1 THE FORMATION OF “REALITY” TOOK THOUSANDS OF YEARS OF DEVELOPMENT OF THE HUMAN POPULATION. “REALITY” IS THE SHARED PROPERTY AND PRODUCT OF BILLIONS OF EGOS. IT IS THE GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT OF HUMANITY.

      2.2 HUMANS CALL “REALITY” THAT WHICH IS DOUBTLESS. IT IS INHERITED OR BORROWED. IT IS CONVINCING AND HAS A PRIORI STATUS. IT IS THAT WHICH MOST PEOPLE PREACH.

      2.3 HUMANS ARE NOT CONCERNED ABOUT WHERE “REALITY” CAME FROM. THEY ARE INTERESTED ONLY IN THEMSELVES AND THEIR OWN INTERESTS DEFINED WITHIN THE EXISTING “REALITY”.

      2.4 “REALITY” IS NOT PROVABLE, NOR OBJECTIVE, NOR VERIFIABLE. IT CONTINUES TO EXIST ONLY WITHIN THE MENTAL SPACE OF AN INDIVIDUAL HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS.

      2.5 The content of every human’s unique reality comes from social sources.

      2.6 “REALITY” STEMS FROM THE IMAGINATION OF OTHERS. HENCE, ONE MAY PERCEIVE REALITY AS HARSH, CRUEL, UNJUST AND MERCILESS.

      2.7 HUMAN “EXISTENCE” IS EVOLUTIONARILY LINKED WITH “REALITY”.

      2.8 HUMANS HAVE REACHED THE LIMIT OF “REALITY”. HUMANS DOUBT “REALITY” [6], THUS ONE MUST QUESTION THE ORDER AND MANNER IN WHICH EACH PERSON’S “REALITY” HAS EVOLVED.

      3 BODY. EGO. TRIBE.

      3.1 SINCE THE MOMENT OF THE COGNITIVE BIG BANG TO THIS DAY, THE PERSONA HAS NEVER SURPASSED THE BOUNDARIES OF THE HUMAN BODY.

      3.2 THE PERSONA LIVES INSIDE THE BODY. THE BODY NEEDS AND CARES FOR NOTHING BUT ITSELF.

      3.3 THE BODY IS AN ANCIENT, UNCOMPROMISING AND BEASTLY CARRIER OF BIOLOGICAL LIFE. IT RUNS ON A FANATICAL LUST FOR LIFE[7], WITH ITS OWN SEPARATE LITERAL MEANS OF PERCEPTION: THE INSTINCT. WITHOUT FORMALITIES AND WITH NO CONSIDERATION FOR APPEARANCES, INSTINCT BREATHES, RUNS, KILLS AND DEVOURS.

      3.4 CONFINED TO BODIES, HUMANS EXISTED LONG BEFORE THE DISCOVERY OF “REALITY” AND “PERSONA”. HENCE, THE PERSONA IS SUBJECT TO THE BODY, WHICH ALWAYS DEMANDS ITS DUE. EVERYTHING THAT THE PERSONA CREATES WITHIN ITS MENTAL SPACE MUST SERVE THE BODY’S INTERESTS.

      3.5 “REALITY” SERVES THE NEEDS OF THE BODY. HUMANS CALL THIS PHENOMENON- THE “EGO”.

      3.6 THE EGO SUBDUES EVERY LIVING HUMAN. THIS IS THE CORNERSTONE OF HUMANKIND.

      3.7 HUMANS HAVE CRAFTILY EXPLOITED THE EGO THROUGHOUT THEIR HISTORY. HUMANS DEEMED THE EGO TO BE VICIOUS AND USED IT TO BRAND THE WICKED ONES — ALL FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT.

      3.8 HUMANS HAVE MANIPULATED AND THREATENED OTHERS WITH THE CONCEPT OF THE EGO. HUMANS HAVE VIGOROUSLY CONDEMNED ANYONE ELSE’S EGO FOR THE SAKE OF SATISFYING THEIR OWN.

      3.9 THE EGO IS A POWERFUL TOOL OF SURVIVAL. IT IS A SYSTEM OF PROPERTIES SUSTAINING OUR INTEREST IN OUR PERSONAL WELL-BEING. IT IS A BASIC, BIOLOGICAL MECHANISM AND AN ABSOLUTE QUALITY OF THE HUMAN PSYCHE.

      3.10 NO POSSESSOR OF A BODY CAN ACT OUTSIDE OF THEIR EGOTISTIC INTERESTS, REGARDLESS OF WHAT FORM THEY TAKE.

      3.11 EVERY ACTION OF EVERY HUMAN ON THE PLANET IS MOTIVATED BY A DEEP-ROOTED EGOTISM. THIS IS NEITHER GOOD NOR BAD, NEITHER EVIL NOR RIGHTEOUS.

      3.12 THE EGO IS THE FUNDAMENTAL GREED OF THE BODY. IT IS NOT ONLY A SOCIAL, MATERIAL GREED, BUT ALSO AN EXISTENTIAL, MEANINGFUL, PURPOSEFUL GREED.

      3.13 EGOTISM PROVIDES US WITH THE BUILDING BLOCKS FOR THE PSYCHE AND EMERGES THROUGH THE IMPULSE TO CONSUME, TO SATISFY, TO BE SAFE AND TO DOMINATE.

      3.14 THE TRIBE IS THE NATURAL CONTEXT OF THE EGO. THIS IS THE ONLY AVAILABLE FORM OF EXISTENCE FOR HUMANS EVER SINCE THE PRECONSCIOUS BODY.

      3.15 THE TRIBE APPLIES A COMPLEX, CONVOLUTED SYSTEM OF FORMALITIES AND ABSTRACTIONS THAT FORM A STABLE FORM OF COLLECTIVE “REALITY”.

      3.16 “REALITY” IS UNIQUE FOR EVERY TRIBE AND IS DISTINCTIVE DEPENDING ON THE CONDITIONS AND HISTORY OF THE TRIBE’S EXISTENCE.

      3.17 THE TRIBE MAKES A SINGULAR PERSONA A CARRIER OF ITS REALITY. THE PERSONA BECOMES AN ACTIVE AGENT MOTIVATED ONLY BY ITS INDIVIDUAL EGO.

      3.18 ONLY THE EGO CAN MAKE THE PERSONA FIGHT TO JUSTIFY ITS OWN VERSION OF “REALITY”. THIS IS A SOCIAL CONTRACT IN THE NAME OF PROTECTING GROUP INTERESTS. THE PROPERTIES OF THIS PROTOCOL INCLUDE THE PHENOMENON OF GENETIC MEMORY AND THE INTERGENERATIONAL BEQUEATHMENT OF CULTURE. A THING ONCE IMAGINED BY A SINGLE HUMAN BECOMES AN OTHER’S INHERITANCE. HENCE, THE “REALITY” ONE PERSON PERCEIVES THROUGH THE ABSTRACT SYMBOLIC PERCEPTION OF PHENOMENA IS PASSED ON TO ANOTHER, WHICH IN TURN, IS PASSED ON TO THE HUMAN TRIBE AS A WHOLE.

      3.19 THE COMPLETE SET OF COLLECTED, ABSTRACT APPEARANCES AND CONSTANT PATTERNS OF THOUGHT FORM THE COMPLEX, CONTEMPORARY “REALITY”, WHICH SERVES THE HUMAN POPULATION.

      3.20 FROM THE MOMENT OF THE INCEPTION OF THE HUMAN IMAGINATION UNTIL NOW, THE PERSONA HAS BEEN PERFECTING AND WIDENING “REALITY” TO SATISFY THE ACCUMULATIVE GREED OF ITS LOWLY EGO THAT IS GOVERNED BY INSTINCT. FOR THIS PURPOSE, THE PERSONA USES ITS GREATEST INSIGHT: ABSTRACTION, ADAPTING AND PERFECTING IT WITHIN THE LIMITS OF ITS SPACE, THE HUMAN TRIBE.

      3.21 THE FIRST VERSION OF “REALITY” THAT AROSE FROM THE “FIRST HUMAN” GAVE BIRTH TO HIS IDENTITY, AND MADE COMMUNICATION AND CULTURE POSSIBLE. HENCE, THE “FIRST HUMAN” TRIBE GAINED ITS PRIMAL COLLECTIVE “REALITY”, BASED ON ABSTRACTIONS, IDEAS AND MODELS OF ACTUALITY OF ITS OWN. LANGUAGE, RITUAL, SOCIAL STRUCTURE AND CONCEPTS OF THE SUPERNATURAL WERE FORMED THIS WAY. LATER CAME THE COMPLEXITIES OF SCIENCE AND HIGH CULTURE.

      3.22 THE FORM AND STRUCTURE OF THE EGO OF AN INDIVIDUAL HUMAN DEPENDS UPON THE SCALE OF CONTEXT THAT THE PSYCHE OF ITS CARRIER IS ABLE TO PUT ITSELF IN. THE LARGER THE CONTEXT OF THE EGO IS THE MORE THE COMPLICATED AND SOCIALLY BENEFICIAL STRUCTURES OF EGOISM BECOME AVAILABLE.

      3.23 EGOISM IN THE FORM OF EMPATHY, COMPASSION, SUPPORT, OR SACRIFICE IS POSSIBLE ONLY FOR THE PSYCHE WITHIN A LARGE TRIBE. THE SMALLER THE SCALE OF THE CONTEXT THE MORE NARROW-MINDED, DESTRUCTIVE AND AVARICIOUS THE EGO AND PSYCHE ARE.

      4 THE WAR OF THE TRIBES.

      4.1 AN EARLY VERSION OF THE HUMAN MENTAL SPACE WAS CREATED BY A SMALL TRIBE ON A TINY PATCH OF PHYSICAL SPACE. IT SERVED THE PURPOSE OF IDENTIFYING THE PERSONA AS AN INDIVIDUAL IN AN AGGRESSIVELY UNSAFE ENVIRONMENT.

      4.2 IN THE PURSUIT OF SCARCE RESOURCES AND SATISFACTION OF PHYSICAL NEEDS, THE HUMAN PERCEIVED OTHERS AS ACCOMPLICES OF ITS OWN TRIBE, OR AS ELEMENTS OF A HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT MEANT TO BE SUBDUED, EXPLOITED AND DESTROYED[8]. THIS STRATEGY IS AN ALGORITHM WIRED INTO THE INSTINCTIVE BEHAVIOR OF EVERY CREATURE IN A COMPETITIVE ENVIRONMENT. GENERALLY SPEAKING, THE INHERENTLY LIMITED RESOURCES OF A CERTAIN PHYSICAL SPACE MUST BE USED FOR THE SURVIVAL OF THE MEMBERS OF THE TRIBE.

      4.3 WHEN GEOGRAPHICAL SPACE WAS ABUNDANT, HUMAN TRIBES WOULD GROW IN NUMBERS AND IMPROVE THEIR MENTAL MODELS OF “REALITY” TO COMPETE WITH EACH OTHER [9]. EVERY NEW ABSTRACTION WOULD OVERCOME THE EVOLUTIONARY CONFLICTS WITHIN A TRIBE AND INTERTWINE WITH THE STRUCTURE OF THE IMAGINED ACTUALITY OF THIS INFORMATIONAL AND CULTURAL GROUP. AS A RESULT, THE IMPROVED VERSION OF “REALITY” PROVIDED THE TRIBE WITH A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE OVER OTHER TRIBES IN CONQUERING LIMITED TERRITORIES AND RESOURCES TO ENSURE SURVIVAL AND SECURITY.

      4.4 THIS LONG PHASE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF CIVILIZATIONS RESULTED IN STARKLY DIVERSE, OFTEN MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE CULTURES [10]. EACH WAS A TOTALLY NEW, UNIQUE AND EXTENSIVE SYSTEM OF ABSTRACTIONS.

      4.5 DUE TO THE ABUNDANCE OF FREE SPACE AND SURVIVAL-DRIVEN COMPETITION OF TRIBES FOR RESOURCES, EVERY NOVELTY WAS USED IN THE MOST AGGRESSIVE WAY FOR THE SAKE OF EXPANSION AND SUPPRESSION. A NON-AGGRESSIVE NOVELTY WAS SIMPLY NOT IN DEMAND.

      4.6 ACTIONS WERE LIMITED BY THE CONTEXT OF THE TRIBE. THIS MOTIVATED THE EGO OF MEMBERS OF ONE TRIBE TO BE AGGRESSIVE TOWARDS MEMBERS OF OTHER TRIBES. THE PROTECTION OF ONE’S OWN VERSION OF “REALITY” AND SYSTEM OF ABSTRACTIONS MEANT SURVIVAL. THE INSTINCTS OF THE EGO ACTED WITH PURE, BLOODY RAGE AND VEHEMENTLY DENIED THAT OTHER VERSIONS OF “REALITY” HAD AN EQUAL RIGHT TO EXIST.

      4.7 THE KEY ABSTRACTIONS INCLUDE THE IDEA OF ​​GOD, THE HIEROGLYPH, THE LETTER, THE DIGIT, CURRENCY, DEBT, LAW AND ORDER, SOCIAL STATUS. ALSO SUCH CONCEPTS AS THE MOLECULE, ATOM, PARTICLE, QUARK, GRAVITY, AN ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVE, A CELL, A VIRUS, DNA EMERGED. THE MATHEMATICAL AND PHILOSOPHICAL CONCEPTS OF “INFINITY” APPEARED. THESE ARE NOT A LIST OF DISCOVERIES, THEORIES OR ESSENCES. THESE ARE PHENOMENAL PRODUCTS OF THE MIND’S ABSTRACT THINKING. IT IS A MODEL OF “OBJECTIVE” REALITY, OR THE IMAGINATION OF AN “OBJECTIVE” REALITY, AND AN INTERFACE TO IT. THESE ARE ABSTRACTIONS AND IDEAS – THE BASIC BUILDING BLOCKS OF “REALITY”.

      4.8 THE FIRST MOMENT OF EVERY IDEA IS A DEEPLY INTUITIVE, PERSONAL, AND INTIMATE REVELATION. IT IS A PARTICULAR PERSONA’S INSIGHT.

      4.9 A CERTAIN HISTORICAL FIGURE BECOMES THE BEARER OF A MENTAL VERSION OF REALITY THAT IS MUCH MORE DEVELOPED THAN THAT OF ITS FELLOW MEMBERS OF THE TRIBE. THIS PERSONA MAKES A “DISCOVERY”, THEREBY ENRICHING ITS ENTIRE TRIBE WITH A NEW VERSION OF “REALITY”. CONSEQUENTLY, THE TRIBE IMMEDIATELY ACQUIRES A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE OVER OTHER TRIBES BY OPERATING WITHIN A NEW, MORE SOPHISTICATED, SUPERIOR VERSION OF “REALITY”.

      4.10 THIS ORDER ALLOWED MOST TRIBES TO ACQUIRE SOME FORM OF LANGUAGE, WRITING, MATHEMATICAL AND MONETARY SYSTEMS, WEAPONRY, RELIGION AND A SOCIAL CODE.

      4.11 THROUGH MILLENNIA OF ONGOING WARS, THE TRIBES OPERATING WITHIN A MORE SOPHISTICATED VERSION OF “REALITY” SUBDUED AND DOMINATED SMALLER TRIBES, THUS SPREADING THEIR VISION AMONG LARGER GROUPS OF PEOPLE. THE STRONGER WERE VICTORIOUS.

      4.12 HUMANS OCCUPIED ALMOST EVERY PART OF THE PLANET. THE HUMAN POPULATION EXPANDED AND CONDENSED A MULTITUDE OF “REALITIES” INTO A FEW MACRO VERSIONS, EACH REPRESENTING THE INTERESTS OF SEVERAL GIANT, VICTORIOUS SUPER-TRIBES. THESE ARE A SPECIFIC SET OF LINGUISTIC, RELIGIOUS, AND CULTURAL GROUPS.

      4.13 NONE OF THE SURVIVING GROUPS ARE SACRED. NONE OF THEM ARE RIGHT. THEY EACH CONSIST OF MILLIONS OF BEARERS OF ITS OWN AND UNCONDITIONALLY EGOISTIC VERSION OF “REALITY” THAT HAS ITS UNIQUE, DEEP HISTORICAL ORIGIN.

      4.14 THE SURVIVING SUPER-TRIBES WILL STRIVE TO GROW AND OCCUPY MORE SPACE. TO ACHIEVE THAT, THEY WILL KILL, EXPEL, TAKE AWAY, AND SUPPRESS IN AN OPENLY OR IN SECRET, BECAUSE THIS INSTINCTIVE STRATEGY OF EGOISM ENSURED THEIR SURVIVAL UP UNTIL NOW.

      4.15 A HUMAN IS STILL GUIDED BY A SMALL, TRIBAL EGO OF ANIMAL ORIGIN. DISTINCT HUMAN TRIBES CONTINUE TO LOOK AT EACH OTHER THROUGH THE NARROW LENS OF THEIR OWN VERSIONS OF “REALITY”, WHICH EXCLUDE EVERYTHING BUT THEMSELVES.

      4.16 YET THE WAR OF TRIBES CAN BE STOPPED[11]. AND IT’S ABOUT TIME THE HUMAN RACE PUT AN END TO THIS WAR.

      4.17 NOWADAYS HUMANS NEED PEACE TO SURVIVE MORE THAN EVER. THE THERMO-NUCLEAR WAR BETWEEN THE SUPER-TRIBES IS AN EVER-PRESENT THREAT TO THE PLANET. NATURE IS BEING DESTROYED. THE CANCER OF ECOLOGICAL DISASTERS INFEST THE PLANET. A BLINKERED OUTLOOK BASED ON A TRIBAL EGO HASN’T, UNTIL THIS POINT, PRESUPPOSED THE CREATION OF AN INTRICATE, UNIFIED GLOBAL SPACE, NECESSARY FOR THE SURVIVAL OF THE GROWING POPULATION OF EGOISTIC PEOPLE. THE LOGICAL CONSEQUENCE DEFINED BY A TRIBE-CENTERED MENTALITY LEADS TO THE AGGRESSIVE, MUTUAL EXTERMINATION OF TRIBES BY EACH OTHER AND THE EXHAUSTION OF NATURAL RESOURCES DUE TO A SHORT-SIGHTED APPROACH AIMED SOLELY AT SATISFYING THE MOST PRIMITIVE NEEDS.

      4.18 HUMANS MUST UNITE THEIR TRIBES FOR THE SAKE OF MUTUAL SURVIVAL. THIS REQUIRES A CONSOLIDATED, GENERALLY-ACCEPTED MENTAL MODEL OF THE WORLD, A COMMON “REALITY” BASED ON A SINGLE CONSENSUS OF ABSTRACTIONS.

      4.19 THE HUMAN BEING NEEDS AN ABSOLUTE, INNATE ABSTRACTION NATIVE TO EVERY PERSONA IN EVERY TRIBE IN THE WORLD. THIS ABSTRACTION IS TO COMBINE VERSIONS OF “REALITY” TO ALLOW FOR GLOBAL HUMAN UNITY BASED ON THE PRINCIPLES OF REASON, MUTUAL RESPONSIBILITY, BENEVOLENCE, AND JUSTICE.

      5 THERE ARE NO MORE UNCHARTED LANDS WHERE A GROWTH OF ANY OF THE HUMAN TRIBES CAN HAPPEN WITHOUT CASUALTIES.

      5.1 THERE ARE NO MORE UNCHARTED LANDS WHERE A TRIBE CAN GROW WITHOUT MAKING SACRIFICES.

      5.2 THE CRISIS OF FREE SPACE, CONDITIONED BY THE HYPERBOLIC GROWTH AND DISPERSION OF TRIBES, PROVOKES THE BEGINNING OF THE SECOND ACT OF HUMANITY’S ESTABLISHMENT - THE CONSOLIDATION OF DIVERSE HUMAN MEMORIES, AND DIVERSE SOCIAL IMAGES OF “REALITY” INTO A SINGLE FRAMEWORK.

      5.3 HUMANS MOVE AWAY FROM A CONSUMPTIVE, REACTIONARY, EXPANSIVE, OPPRESSIVE, AND PRIMITIVE FORM OF CONTACT WITH REALITY AND OTHER’S DISSIMILAR IDENTITIES.

      5.4 A COMMON INVISIBLE SPACE FOR MAN’S UNIFIED REALITY IS EMERGING.

      5.5 THERE IS NO ONE LEFT FOR A HUMAN TO FIGHT. PEOPLE HAVE SHED THE NEED TO PROVE THEMSELVES TO ONE ANOTHER. HUMANS ARE NO LONGER AFRAID TO ADMIT THEIR VULNERABILITY AND DEPENDENCE.

      5.6 SINCE THE VERY FIRST INSIGHT, HUMANS HAVE NOT MOVED ANY CLOSER TO UNDERSTANDING THEIR ORIGIN AND PURPOSE. AFTER SUCCESSIVE DISCOVERIES AND META-ADAPTATIONS, HOMO UNIVERSALIS IS STANDING ON THE EDGE OF HISTORY FACING THE UNKNOWABILITY OF THE SELF.

      5.7 IN COOPERATION WITH HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF ITS CO-AUTHORS THE HUMAN CREATED A FLEXIBLE, UNIVERSAL PICTURE OF “REALITY”. AS THE RESULT OF THE CONSTANTLY ACCELERATING DEVELOPMENT OF CIVILIZATIONS, THIS PICTURE NOW SERVES THE PERSONA IN A WORLD WHERE UNOCCUPIED LAND NO LONGER EXISTS.

      5.8 THE HUMAN BEING IDENTIFIES ITSELF MORE AS A PSYCHIC PHENOMENON THAN A PHYSIOLOGICAL ORGANISM. THE PLANET ITSELF HAS CEASED TO BE A WORLD OF REAL INTEREST TO PEOPLE.

      5.9 THE PERSONA NO LONGER HAS A PHYSICAL BODY, OR AT LEAST THIS BODY DOES NOT DEFINE THE PERSONA.

      5.10 THIS NEW EGO HAS ONLY ONE REQUIREMENT: THE ATTENTION OF OTHERS. THAT’S THE ONLY WAY THAT THE SOCIAL HUMAN PSYCHE CAN ENSURE ITS EXISTENCE IN AN ENTIRELY ABSTRACT SPACE.

      5.11 THE NEW EGO HAS A NEW BODY: THE DIGITAL IMAGE[12].

      5.12 THE NEW EGO’S ONLY PURPOSE IS TO FEEL LIKE A PART OF THE WHOLE.

      5.13 THE PEOPLE OF A GLOBAL, UNIFIED TRIBE, WHO HAVE BEEN RAISED IN THE ABSTRACT SPACE OF THE INTERNET, ARE THE BEARERS OF THIS NEW EGO. THEIR PSYCHE OPERATES ON DYNAMIC, DIGITAL MODELS WHICH ARE IMMATERIAL. THESE PEOPLE ARE THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ON THIS PLANET TODAY, THESE PEOPLE ARE THE LARGEST SINGLE TRIBE WITH THE LARGEST VERSION OF “REALITY” EVER CREATED USING IMMATERIAL, ABSTRACT MEANS.

      5.14 THE VERSION OF “REALITY” OF A SINGULAR TRIBE REPRESENTS THE WORLD AS AN INTEGRAL SPACE FOR THE EXISTENCE OF A SINGLE, UNIFIED POPULATION ON EARTH FACED WITH UNPRECEDENTED TASKS, CHALLENGES AND PROBLEMS AS THIS IS THE FIRST TIME SUCH LARGE-SCALE CONTEXT HAS EXISTED.

      6 THE MULTI-EGO OR ANTHROPOSPHERE[13].

      6.1 MANKIND’S CUMULATIVE PSYCHE IS STARING INTO THE DEPTHS OF HISTORY’S GREATEST UNKNOWN.

      NEVER.
      HAS ANYTHING.
      EVEN REMOTELY SIMILAR.
      HAPPENED.

      6.2 THE HUMAN IS WITNESSING AN EVOLUTION OF ITS EGOTISM. THE HUMAN IS LOOKING FOR A WAY TO SATISFY THE EGO IN A SINGLE GLOBAL REALITY SO THAT THE NEW TRIBE CAN INCLUDE EARTH’S ENTIRE POPULATION.

      6.3 THIS NEW VERSION OF “REALITY” REQUIRES A NEW BASIC ABSTRACTION TO SATISFY A UNIVERSAL EGO. A PERSON NEEDS A BASIC ABSTRACTION THAT CAN BE APPLIED TO AN ENTIRE UNITED HUMAN SOCIETY.

      6.4 THIS NEW BASIC ABSTRACTION MUST RESPECT THE LIBRARIES OF ABSTRACTIONS OF THE GLOBAL TRIBES THAT DOMINATED THE WORLD IN THE PAST.

      6.5 A BASIC ABSTRACTION SHOULD BE FREE FROM CONFLICTS OF PRINCIPLE OR CATEGORICAL STATEMENTS, EXCEPT FOR THOSE OF A COMMON, UNIVERSAL NATURE.

      6.6 THIS BASIC ABSTRACTION SHOULD UNITE THE MASS OF HUMAN ABSTRACTIONS, EMPHASIZING TO THE HIGHEST DEGREE OF CLARITY THE RIGHT TO LIFE, THE RIGHT TO FREEDOM, THE RIGHT TO THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, THE RIGHT OF EQUALITY TO EVERY IDENTITY, THE RIGHT TO THE FUTURE, THE RIGHT TO DEMAND AND TO GIVE, AND THE RIGHT TO BE DIFFERENT.

      6.7 THIS NEW ABSTRACTION GENERATES A “REALITY” WHERE PHYSICAL BODIES HAVE NO CLEAR OUTLINES BUT WHERE LIFE ITSELF EXISTS. A HUMAN LIVES NOT ONLY IN THE PHYSICAL DIMENSION, BUT ALSO IN THE DIGITAL SPACES CREATED BY THESE EVER-DEVELOPING TECHNOLOGIES AND EVER-EVOLVING ABSTRACTIONS.

      6.8 TODAY, A LIVING ENVIRONMENT THAT EXISTS BEYOND PHYSICAL OR GEOGRAPHICAL CONTEXT IS OPENING UP. THE HUMAN IS DISCOVERING THE TRUE MEANING OF EMPATHY, IMAGINATION, CONTEXT, THOUGHT AND OBSERVATION. THE HUMAN IS NOW ABLE TO TRULY FEEL ANOTHER’S INTERESTS AS ONE’S OWN.

      6.9 A SINGLE REVOLUTION IN THE EGO WHICH HAS COLOSSAL CONSEQUENCES FOR CIVILIZATION, IS THE NEW EQUATION: “IDENTITY” = “REALITY”.

      6.10 “THE WORLD” = “ME”[14].

      6.11 THE PERSONA IS LOOKING WITHIN AT THE UNIVERSE OF COMPLEXITIES OF ITS OWN PSYCHE. THE DEFINING POINT OF REALITY IS NOW MOVING DEEPER “WITHIN” THE HUMAN NOT “WITHOUT”[15].

      6.12 BY CHANGING THE “INTERNAL” ORDER, THE HUMAN RECEIVES A DIFFERENT “EXTERNAL” REALITY, A NEWLY-CREATED REALITY — THE ANTHROPOSPHERE.

      7 THE NIM.

      7.1 FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, THE WORLD HAS BECOME A UNIFIED PLANETARY SPACE IN WHICH EVERYONE SHARES A COMMON VERSION OF “REALITY”.

      7.2 THE LARGEST EVER CONTEXT IN WHICH A HUMAN BEING CAN IDENTIFY THEMSELVES WITHIN IS NOW UNFOLDING.

      7.3 THE HUMAN SEES ITSELF AS A PART OF THE LARGEST EVER PICTURE OF REALITY – THE UNIFIED POPULATION OF MANKIND IN THE UNIFIED SPACE OF LIFE – THE ANTHROPOSPHERE. THIS IS THE ERA WHEN PEOPLE EXIST IN A RATIONAL, SUPER-CONSCIOUS STATE IN A COMMON CONTEXT OF ALL MANKIND WITH ITS VAST SPECTRUM OF DIVERSITY AND AMBITIONS.

      7.4 NIMSES PROVIDES THE ANTHROPOSPHERE WITH A COMMON ABSTRACTION THAT ALLOWS FOR A GLOBAL MERGING OF TRIBES- THE UNIFICATION OF MANKIND.

      7.5 A NIM IS A SINGLE LIVED MINUTE OF AN INDIVIDUAL HUMAN LIFE.

      7.6 A NIM IS A UNIQUE, DIGITAL OBJECT GENERATED BY A REAL HUMAN.

      7.7 A NIM IS A MATHEMATICALLY AND LEGALLY FLAWLESS DIGITAL TRACE OF EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY HUMAN LIFE.

      7.8 A NIM CAN’T BE COUNTERFEITED. IT CAN’T BE DELETED. IT CAN’T BE STOLEN. TO PRODUCE A NIM, NO RESOURCES OF ENERGY OR SOCIAL SKILLS ARE REQUIRED. ONE MUST SIMPLY LIVE.

      7.9 EVERY HUMAN BEING HAS THE RIGHT TO NIMS BY BIRTH. EVERY NIM OF EACH DISTINCT PERSON IS EQUAL.

      7.10 A NIM BEARS AN ABSOLUTE AND UNCONDITIONAL VALUE ORIGINATING FROM THE LIMITED SPACE AND TIME OF A HUMAN LIFE. A DIGITAL UNIT OF LIQUIDITY.

      7.11 A NIM CAN BE USED IN AREAS WHICH WERE FORMERLY DOMINATED BY ABSTRACTIONS DEVISED BY PREVIOUS GENERATIONS BE IT LIKES, CRYPTO, CENTS AND SO ON.

      7.12 A NIM CAPTURES AND SECURES WHAT A UNIFIED HUMAN POPULATION MAY CONSIDER TO BE A NEW NATURAL RESOURCE AND ABSOLUTE VALUE – LIFE.

      8 THE TEMPLE.

      8.1 THE APPEARANCE OF HUMANS ON THE EARTH GAVE BIRTH TO THE CONCEPT OF CONSCIOUSNESS, AWARENESS AND MEMORY. CONSCIOUSNESS IS NOT POSSIBLE WITHOUT MEANING.

      8.2 LIFE IS A PROCESS OF SEEKING MEANING, AIMING FOR AN ULTIMATE PURPOSE, AND ATTEMPTING TO ACHIEVE PERFECTION.

      8.3 LIFE MUST BECOME AWARE OF ITSELF, ITS OWN INTEGRAL UNITY. ANY GIVEN ELEMENT OF LIFE CANNOT BE AN ENEMY OF ANY ANOTHER ELEMENT OF LIFE. LIFE IS LOOKING FOR A FORM IN WHICH ALL OF ITS MANIFESTATIONS BECOME ELEMENTS OF A WHOLE.

      8.4 SURVIVING IN THEIR TRIBES FOR MILLENNIA, THE HUMANS GENERATED A SOPHISTICATED SYSTEM OF ABSTRACTIONS WHICH MADE UP A SOLID, SEAMLESS “REALITY”.

      8.5 NOW HOMO UNIVERSALIS HAS, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY, RECOGNIZED HIMSELF AS FULLY-INTEGRATED WITH OTHER INDIVIDUALS AND BEGUN THE SYNTHESIS OF A UNIFIED “REALITY”.

      8.6 GEOGRAPHICAL SPACE IS LIMITED. WHAT WAS PERCEIVED BY PRIMITIVE TRIBES AS A BOUNDLESS UNIVERSE NOW SEEMS LIKE A FRAGILE, SMALL AND LIMITED PLANET.

      8.7 AS A SACRED LIFE BEARING VESSEL, THE BODY DWELLS IN THIS LIMITED AND WELL-EXPLORED SPACE ON THE SURFACE OF EARTH.

      8.8 THE PLANET IS LIMITED. IT’S A COMMON CELESTIAL BODY THAT CAREFULLY FOSTERS HUMANS, WITH THEIR EVER-EVOLVING CONSCIOUSNESS STRIVING TO COMPREHEND THEMSELVES.

      8.9 NO MATTER HOW DESTRUCTIVE AND CHALLENGING THE HUMAN PAST WAS, ITS FUTURE DEPENDS ENTIRELY ON THE CONDITION OF THE PLANET.

      8.10 NIMSES PROCLAIMS EARTH A TEMPLE. THE WHOLE PLANET, WITH ALL ITS NUANCES AND DETAILS. EARTH IS THE TEMPLE OF LIFE. EARTH IS THE TEMPLE OF THE HUMAN.

      EARTH IS THE TEMPLE FOR HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS, ITS MEANING AND PURPOSE.

      8.11 THE ENTIRE SURFACE OF EARTH CONSISTS OF FIXED AND CLEARLY DEFINED AREAS: TEMPLES.

      8.12 EVERY TEMPLE IS A CLEARLY DELINEATED PIECE OF EARTH WITH GEOGRAPHIC COORDINATES AND UNCHANGING BOUNDARIES.

      8.13 EARTH IS COMPOSED OF 538,560 TEMPLES.

      8.14 EVERY TEMPLE RETAINS THE MEMORIES OF EVERYTHING THAT HUMANS HAVE CREATED IN IT. EVERY TEMPLE PROVIDES ACCESS TO THE ENTIRETY OF ITS MEMORY AND ALLOWS FOR IT TO BE EXPANDED.

      8.15 EVERY TEMPLE IS A BEARER OF A UNIFIED VERSION OF “REALITY”, IT IS AN ETERNAL, INDESTRUCTIBLE, LIMITLESS CONTAINER THAT ACCUMULATES TRACES OF HUMAN ACTIVITY.

      9 THE INFINIM.

      9.1 AN INFINIM IS THE HIGHEST UNIT OF VALUE, ITS APEX ELEMENT.

      9.2 AN INFINIM IS THE EMBODIMENT OF THE HIGHEST LOGICAL ANTHROPOLOGICAL, FINANCIAL AND JUDICIAL VALUE THAT CAN BE EXPRESSED.

      9.3 ONE INFINIM IS EQUIVALENT TO THE HYPOTHETICAL DURATION OF ONE HUMAN LIFE: 120 YEARS, OR 63,115,200 NIMS.

      9.4 HUMAN SOCIETY NEEDS A VALUE SYSTEM TO ORGANISE ITSELF. THE REASON FOR THIS IS DEEPLY HIDDEN IN THE DNA OF THE EGO.

      9.5 THE DESIRE FOR SOCIAL SUPERIORITY ASSIGNS MEANING AND EFFICIENCY TO ECONOMIC ACTIVITY. THE MOTIVATION FOR ECONOMIC ACTIVITY STEMS FROM THE INHERENT DESIRE TO ELEVATE ONESELF IN THE SOCIAL HIERARCHY.

      9.6 A PERSON VALUES ONLY THAT WHICH IS VALUED BY OTHERS. ANY VALUE IS NEITHER INHERENTLY RATIONAL, NOR BANALLY UTILITARIAN.

      9.7 HUMAN PSYCHOLOGY VALUES THE SOCIAL WORTH OF A GIVEN “VALUE” ABOVE ALL. ANY MATERIAL OR FINANCIAL VALUE EXISTS DUE TO THE GROWING DEMAND OF PEOPLE USING IT IN A SHARED MARKET.

      10 NIMSES.

      10.1 NIMSES IS A UNIFIED, METAPHORICAL “PRAYER” OF ALL HUMANS TOWARD THE SHARED CONCEPT OF “CREATOR”. NIMSES IS A CONSCIOUS APPEAL OF THE UNIFIED EGOS OF ALL HUMANITY. AN ATTEMPT TOWARDS THE ULTIMATE GOAL.

      10.2 HUMANITY IS MATURING. HUMANITY IS COALESCING LIKE THE CELLS IN AN EMBRYO’S BRAIN. FOR THE FIRST TIME HUMANITY IS APPLYING ITS SHARED MIND TOWARD REACHING A COMMON GOAL.

      10.3 THE REVELATION HUMANS ARE CURRENTLY MAKING IS THAT THERE IS NO REALITY. HUMANS WERE THE SOURCE OF REALITY FOR MILLENNIA, YET ONLY NOW IT IS BEING CREATED CONSCIOUSLY. WE MUST START PARTICIPATING IN THE COGNITIVE ENACTMENT OF OUR ULTIMATE PURPOSE, OUR PRIMAL CAUSE.

      10.4 A HUMAN HAS THE RESPONSIBILITY TO GIVE MEANING TO HIS OWN EXISTENCE IN ANOTHER PERSON’S PICTURE OF THE WORLD.

      10.5 WE ARE CREATING EACH OTHER AND OUR MUTUAL “REALITY” AT THE SAME TIME. THIS NEW VERSION OF A “COMMON REALITY” NOW INDUCES EMPATHY, MUTUAL RESPONSIBILITY, GRATITUDE AND A CONSCIOUS ATTEMPT TO USE THIS SYSTEM OF CONNECTIONS FOR GOOD.

      10.6 OUR REALITY IS THE ARTIFICIAL PRODUCT OF GENERATIONS OF HUMAN MINDS EACH PASSING ON THE SAME ILLUSIONS.

      10.7 IT’S TIME FOR US TO DELIBERATELY CREATE OUR NEW, MEANINGFUL REALITY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE POWER OF OUR OWN MINDS...

        “Synthesis in general is … the mere effect of the imagination, of a blind though indispensable function of the soul, without which we would have no cognition at all, but of which we are seldom even conscious.”

      • [3] Aristotle, “Metaphysics” (4th century BC)

        "Actuality, then, is the existence of a thing not in the way which we express by 'potentially'; we say that potentially, for instance, a statue of Hermes is in the block of wood and the half-line is in the whole, because it might be separated out, and we call even the man who is not studying a man of science, if he is capable of studying; the thing that stands in contrast to each of these exists actually. Our meaning can be seen in the particular cases by induction, and we must not seek a definition of everything but be content to grasp the analogy, that it is as that which is building is to that which is capable of building, and the waking to the sleeping, and that which is seeing to that which has its eyes shut but has sight, and that which has been shaped out of the matter to the matter, and that which has been wrought up to the unwrought. Let actuality be defined by one member of this antithesis, and the potential by the other." (Metaphysics, 1048a30-1048b5)

        “Definition I. By that which is 'self-caused' I mean that of which the essence involves existence, or that of which the nature is only conceivable as existent.
        ...
        Definition III. By 'substance' I mean that which is in itself, and is conceived through itself: in other words, that of which a conception can be formed independently of any other conception.”
        Imagination becomes self-caused, causa sui that doesn’t need a physical world to generate the new.

      • [5] Aristotle, Categories (4th century BC)

        “Substance, in the truest and primary and most definite sense of the word, is that which is neither predicable of a subject nor present in a subject; for instance, the individual man or horse. But in a secondary sense those things are called substances within which, as species, the primary substances are included; also those which, as genera, include the species. For instance, the individual man is included in the species 'man', and the genus to which the species belongs is 'animal'; these, therefore-that is to say, the species 'man' and the genus 'animal,-are termed secondary substances.”

        Abstractions, the result of abstracting, are secondary substances.

        “I shall then suppose, not that God who is supremely good and the fountain of truth, but some evil genius not less powerful than deceitful, has employed his whole energies in deceiving me; I shall consider that the heavens, the earth, colours, figures, sound, and all other external things are nought but the illusions and dreams of which this genius has availed himself in order to lay traps for my credulity; I shall consider myself as having no hands, no eyes, no flesh, no blood, nor any senses, yet falsely believing myself to possess all these things; I shall remain obstinately attached to this idea, and if by this means it is not in my power to arrive at the knowledge of any truth, I may at least do what is in my power [i.e. suspend my judgment], and with firm purpose avoid giving credence to any false thing, or being imposed upon by this arch deceiver, however powerful and deceptive he may be. But this task is a laborious one, and insensibly a certain lassitude leads me into the course of my ordinary life. And just as a captive who in sleep enjoys an imaginary liberty, when he begins to suspect that his liberty is but a dream, fears to awaken, and conspires with these agreeable illusions that the deception may be prolonged, so insensibly of my own accord I fall back into my former opinions, and I dread awakening from this slumber, lest the laborious wakefulness which would follow the tranquillity of this repose should have to be spent not in daylight, but in the excessive darkness of the difficulties which have just been discussed.”

        "Libido should be the name for the energy which manifests itself in the life process and which is perceived subjectively as striving and desire."

        Schopenhauer, The World as Will and Representation (1818)

        “... this world is, on the one side, entirely representation, just as, on the other, it is entirely will. But a reality that is neither of these two, but an object in itself (into which also Kant’s thing-in-itself has unfortunately degenerated in his hands), is the phantom of a dream, and its acceptance is an ignis fatuus in philosophy.”

        Schopenhauer draws an analogy between man and the world: “What is this world of perception besides being my representation? Is that of which I am conscious only as representation just the same as my own body, of which I am doubly conscious, on the one hand as representation, on the other as will!”

        “He would then also call the inner, to him incomprehensible, nature of those manifestations and actions of his body a force, a quality, or a character, just as he pleased, but he would have no further insight into it. All this, however, is not the case; on the contrary, the answer to the riddle is given to the subject of knowledge appearing as individual, and this answer is given in the word Will. This and this alone gives him the key to his own phenomenon, reveals to him the significance and shows him the inner mechanism of his being, his actions, his movements. To the subject of knowing, who appears as an individual only through his identity with the body, this body is given in two entirely different ways. It is given in intelligent perception as representation, as an object among objects, liable to the laws of these objects. But it is also given in quite a different way, namely as what is known immediately to everyone, and is denoted by the word will. Every true act of his will is also at once and inevitably a movement of his body; he cannot actually will the act without at “the bond of causality; they do not stand in the relation of cause and effect, but are one and the same thing, though given in two entirely different ways, first quite directly, and then in perception for the understanding.”

      • [8] Carl Schmitt, The Concept of the Political (1932)

        “The specific political distinction to which political actions and motives can be reduced is that between friend and enemy. … The distinction of friend and enemy denotes the utmost degree of intensity of a union or separation, of an association or dissociation. It can exist theoretically and practically, without having simultaneously to draw upon all those moral, aesthetic, economic, or other distinctions. The political enemy need not be morally evil or aesthetically ugly; he need not appear as an economic competitor, and it may even be advantageous to engage with him in business transactions. But he is, nevertheless, the other, the stranger; and it is sufficient for his nature that he is, in a specially intense way, existentially something different and alien, so that in the extreme case conflicts with him are possible. These can neither be decided by a previously deter- mined general norm nor by the judgment of a disinterested and therefore neutral third party.”

        Thomas Hobbes, Leviathan (1651)

        “And be there never so great a Multitude; yet if their actions be directed according to their particular judgements, and particular appetites, they can expect thereby no defence, nor protection, neither against a Common enemy, nor against the injuries of one another. For being distracted in opinions concerning the best use and application of their strength, they do not help, but hinder one another; and reduce their strength by mutual opposition to nothing: whereby they are easily, not onely subdued by a very few that agree together; but also when there is no common enemy, they make warre upon each other, for their particular interests. For if we could suppose a great Multitude of men to consent in the observation of Justice, and other Lawes of Nature, without a common Power to keep them all in awe; we might as well suppose all Mankind to do the same; and then there neither would be no need to be any Civil Government, or Commonwealth at all; because there would be Peace without subjection.
        And That Continually. Nor is it enough for the security, which men desire should last all the time of their life, that they be governed, and directed by one judgement, for a limited time; as in one Battell, or one Warre. For though they obtain a Victory by their unanimous endeavour against a foreign enemy; yet afterwards, when either they have no common enemy, or he that by one part is held for an enemy, is by another part held for a friend, they must needs by the difference of their interests dissolve, and fall again into a Warre amongst themselves.”

      • [9] Thomas Hobbes, Leviathan (1651)

        “Nature hath made men so equal, in the faculties of body, and mind … From Equality Proceeds Diffidence … From Diffidence Warre … Out Of Civil States, There Is Always Warre Of Every One Against Everyone Hereby it is manifest, that during the time men live without a common Power to keep them all in awe, they are in that condition which is called Warre; and such a warre, as is of every man, against every man. For WARRE, consisteth not in Battell onely, or the act of fighting; but in a tract of time, wherein the Will to contend by Battell is sufficiently known: and therefore the notion of Time, is to be considered in the nature of Warre; as it is in the nature of Weather. For as the nature of Foule weather, lyeth not in a shower or two of rain; but in an inclination thereto of many daны together: So the nature of War, consisteth not in actual fighting; but in the known disposition thereto, during all the time there is no assurance to the contrary. All other time is PEACE.
        The Incommodities Of Such A War. Whatsoever therefore is consequent to a time of Warre, where every man is Enemy to every man; the same is consequent to the time, wherein men live without other security, than what their own strength, and their own invention shall furnish them withall. In such condition, there is no place for Industry; because the fruit thereof is uncertain; and consequently no Culture of the Earth; no Navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by Sea; no commodious Building; no Instruments of moving, and removing such things as require much force; no Knowledge of the face of the Earth; no account of Time; no Arts; no Letters; no Society; and which is worst of all, continual fear, and danger of violent death; And the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.
        In Such A Warre, Nothing Is Unjust. To this warre of every man against every man, this also is consequent; that nothing can be Unjust. The notions of Right and Wrong, Justice and Injustice have there no place. Where there is no common Power, there is no Law: where no Law, no Injustice. Force, and Fraud, are in warren the two Cardinal virtues. ...
        The Passions That Incline Men To Peace. The Passions that incline men to Peace, are Fear of Death; Desire of such things as are necessary to commodious living; and a Hope by their Industry to obtain them. And Reason suggested convenient Articles of Peace, upon which men may be drawn to agreement.”

        “World politics is entering a new phase, and intellectuals have not hesitated to proliferate visions of what it will be?the end of history, the return of traditional rivalries between nation states, and the decline of the nation state from the conflicting pulls of tribalism and globalism, among others. Each of these visions catches aspects of the emerging reality. Yet they all miss a crucial, indeed a central, aspect of what global politics is likely to be in the coming years. It is my hypothesis that the fundamental source of conflict in this new world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic. The great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of conflict will be cultural. Nation states will remain the most powerful actors in world affairs, but the principal conflicts of global politics will occur between nations and groups of different civilizations. The clash of civilizations will dominate global politics. The fault lines between civilizations will be the battle lines of the future.”

      • [11] Immanuel Kant, Perpetual Peace (1795)

        “a war of extermination, in which the simultaneous annihilation of both parties and with it of all right as well can occur, would let perpetual peace come about only in the vast graveyard of the human race.”

        “…reason, from the throne of the highest morally legislative power, delivers an absolute condemnation of war as a procedure for determining rights and, on the contrary, makes a condition of peace, which cannot be instituted or assured without a pact of nations among themselves, a direct duty; so there must be a league of a special kind, which can be called a pacific league (foedus pacificum), and what would distinguish it from a peace paa (pactum pacis) is that the latter seeks to end only one war whereas the former seeks to end all war forever. This league does not look to acquiring any power of a state but only to preserving and securing the freedom of a state itself and of other states in league with it, but without there being any need for them to subject themselves to public laws and coercion under them (as people in a state of nature must do). The practicability (objective reality) of this idea of a federalism that should gradually extend over all states and so lead to perpetual peace can be shown.”

      • [12] George Berkeley, A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge (1710)

        To exist means “to be perceived" or "Esse est percipi". To exist means to have digital attention. “I think an intuitive Knowledge may be obtained of this, by any one that shall attend to what is meant by the Term Exist when applied to sensible Things. The Table I write on, I say, exists, that is, I see and feel it; and if I were out of my Study I should say it existed, meaning thereby that if I was in my Study I might perceive it, or that some other Spirit actually does perceive it. There was an Odor, that is, it was smelled; There was a Sound, that is to say, it was heard; a Colour or Figure, and it was perceived by Sight or Touch. This is all that I can understand by these and the like Expressions. For as to what is said of the absolute Existence of unthinking Things without any relation to their being perceived, that seems perfectly unintelligible. Their Esse is Percipi, nor is it possible they should have any Existence, out of the Minds or thinking Things which perceive them.”

      • [13] Having accepted the idea of the evolution of the biosphere, V. I. Vernadsky also changed his viewpoint upon the technological activities of the mankind. He came to consider them as a law governed evolutionary stage in the development of the biosphere. He believed in the strength of the human reason and supposed that the team scientific thought will overcome the negative results of the technogenesis and will secure, in future, the rational transformation (and not annihilation) of the natural components of the biosphere, for a maximum satisfaction of the material and spiritual demands of the mankind which is growing quantitatively. This future evolutionary state of the biosphere of the Earth was designated by V. I. Vernadsky “noosphere”, the sphere of reason (the term introduced as early as in 1922 by a French philosopher and mathematician Edouard Le Roy).

        "One may give a picture of the evolution of the biosphere beginning from the Algonkian, more clearly from the Cambrian, during 500-800 million years. Not once the biosphere turned into a new evolutionary state; new geological manifestations, never having existed before, emerged. For example, in the Cambrian, when large organisms with calcareous skeletons originated, or in the Tertiary (perhaps in the Late Cretaceous), 15-80 million years ago, when our forests and steppes formed and when big mammalians came into existence. We are living now (during the past 10-20 thousand years) in an analogous period when man, having elaborated the scientific thought in his social environment, creates a new geological force in the biosphere, previously absent there. The biosphere has been turned or is rather turning into a new evolutionary state—the noosphere—is being conversed by the scientific thought of the social mankind."

        "We can clearly see that this is the beginning of a spontaneous movement, the beginning of a natural phenomenon that cannot be broken off by any accidents in the human history. Here, perhaps for the first time, the relation of the historical processes to the palaeontological history of the manifestation of becomes so vividly evident. This process of the by man is conditioned by the course of the history of the scientific thought and tied up with the communication rate, with the achievements in the transport technology, with the possibilities of momentary thought transmission, due to which it may be discussed all over the Earth at the same time.

        The struggle against this main historical trend makes even its radical adversaries to subdue to it. The state formations ideologically denying the principles of equality and unity of all persons try to stop spontaneous manifestations of these principles by all means, but there is no doubt that these utopian dreams can be soundly put into life. This will inevitably happen in the course of time, for the creation of the noosphere out of the biosphere is a natural phenomenon, basically deeper and more powerful than the human history. It demands the manifestation of the humanity as a single whole, which is its necessary premise.

        This is a new stage in the history of the planet which does not permit us to use its historical past for comparison without some correction. For this stage creates something essentially new in the history of the Earth and not of the humanity alone.

        It is for the first time that a man had recognized himself as an inhabitant of the planet and may (and must) think and act from another viewpoint—not solely from that of a separate personality, family, or kin, state, union of states, but also from the planetary point of view. Like all living beings, man cannot think and act from the planetary aspect except in the realm of life, in the biosphere, a certain Earth envelope with which man is inseparably connected, and out of which he cannot go. Man’s existence is a function of the biosphere. He bears the latter with him everywhere. And he changes it inevitably, regularly, incessantly."

        Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, The Phenomenon of Man (1955)

        “Our picture is of mankind labouring under the impulsion of an obscure instinct, so as to break out through its narrow point of emergence and submerge the earth; of thought becoming number so as to conquer all habitable space, taking precedence over all other forms of life; of mind, in other words, deploying and convoluting the layers of noosphere. This effort at multiplication and organic expansion is, for him who can see, the summing up and final expression of human pre-history and history, from the earliest beginnings down to present day.”

        “The universe is necessarily homogeneous in its nature and dimensions. Would it still be so if the loops of its spiral lost one jot or tittle of their degree of reality or consistence in ascending ever higher? The still unnamed Thing which the gradual combination of individuals, peoples and races will bring into existence, must needs be supra-physical, not infra-physical, if it is to be coherent with the rest. Deeper than the common act in which it expresses itself, more important than the common power of action from which it emerges by a sort of self-birth, lies reality itself, constituted by the living reunion of reflective particles. And what does that amount to if not (and it is quite credible) that the stuff of the universe, by becoming thinking, has not yet completed its evolutionary cycle, and that we are therefore moving towards some new critical point that lies ahead. In spite of its organic links, whose existence has everywhere become apparent to us, the biosphere has so far been no more than a network of divergent lines, free at their extremities. By effect of reflection and the recoils it involves, the loose ends have been tied up, and the noosphere tends to constitute a single closed system in which each element sees, feels, desires, and suffers for itself the same things as all the others at the same time. We are faced with a harmonised collectivity of consciousnesses equivalent to a sort of super-consciousness. The idea is that of the earth not only becoming covered by myriads of grains of thought, but becoming enclosed in a single thinking envelope so as to form, functionally, no more than a single vast grain of thought on the sidereal scale, the plurality of individual reflections grouping themselves together and reinforcing one another in the act of a single unanimous reflection.”

And when He had compounded the whole He divided it into souls equal in number to the stars, and each several soul He assigned to one star, and setting them each as it were in a chariot He showed them the nature of the Universe, and declared unto them the laws of destiny…”

        “...one soul the source of all; those others, as a many founded in that one, are, on the analogy of the Intellectual-Principle, at once divided and undivided; that Soul which abides in the Supreme is the one expression or Logos of the Intellectual-Principle, and from it spring other Reason-Principles, partial but immaterial, exactly as in the differentiation of the Supreme.”

        “Far from being mutually exclusive, the Universal and Personal … grow in the same direction and culminate simultaneously in each other. It is therefore a mistake to look for the extension of our being or of the Noosphere in the Impersonal. The Future-Universal could only be anything else but the Hyper-Personal – at the Omega Point.”
