Homo-Sapiens

Postby waechter418 » Sat Sep 14, 2019 2:48 pm

In the 18th century, Carl von Lynne, a Swedish classifying specialist, came up with a new category of Homo, which he labelled Sapiens – “wise” – probably to distinct it from the former and to give it a superior touch. If so, erroneously, as being wise was applied to the one who has common sense and relates himself according to his Point of View - whereas Sapiens, being a product of Dualism, has neither common sense nor an individual (indivisible) Point of View, and thus tries to relate himself with the help of a feedback-mechanism called intellect.

In Dualism intellect acts as a double-feedback mechanism which, when applied to the there from emanating viewpoints, turns into a division/ multiplication process (renown as rationalism) that brings about a dual-linear procession (chain-reaction) of viewpoints*. Attempts to inhibit this process(ion) through a 3rd position, or virtual viewpoint, can be found in the alternating and contrary R/P system (**) as well, but both contain the possibility of an identification with this viewpoint and thus of an integration of the others. Whereas in the Geometry of Dualism, this position, or viewpoint, appears separate as well and thus initiates, in conjunction with the intellect, an auto-fragmentation process.
*viewpoints can occur where there is no “Point of View”

Greek philosophers and geometricians, who already encountered this process, expected it to be limited by a Smallest and a Largest, and thus bring about a union of micro- and macrocosm. These expectations got thwarted by Sapiens, when he placed the intellect into his cerebellum and thus made himself to the centre of the fragmentation process, whose dual linear dynamic forces him to carry it on into opposite directions, which led him so far to the two smallest that mark the boundaries of his universe – but not to the end of the fragmentation process, as each of these smallest is a time/space event of it. Moreover, he furthers this process, by furnishing each of the events (which are actually the same) with attributes and measurements, in order to fix them (and the process) and to place them at its (hopefully: smallest) beginnings.

Sapiens apparently loses confidence into his self-proclaimed wisdom and reason, at least it would explain his growing efforts to turn himself into a Homo-Artifact and to create a virtual habitat for the same. Oddly, he structures it like his traditional possession and defence (paranoia) complexes, resembling old fortresses whose outer courts are dedicated to commerce and entertainment, while the inner are for the programming and the administration of this “virtual world”, whose nucleus is reserved for the militaries and the sciences that protect and hide the temples of the ruling class and its god mammon.
Structures like that have been around since millennia and originate from the hope to be able to realize oneself through isolation and fortification– whereby the latter is foremost to protect the possession complex and its spoils, both having grown quite formidable in the realm of Sapiens i.e. the Occidental culture.
And since, like any thief, or beast of pray, he is not going to abandon his booty, he has to find ways to transform it into digital/virtual treasures and to fend off the growing masses of his hungry “third world” victims (second world connotes probably the time/space his rip-off takes)- which is going to be complicated, as he still needs them to help him plunder their last resources.
With dividing the planet Earth into a prodigal north, where paranoia and possession complexes are cultivated, and a deprived south whose cultural contributions are mega slums which breed crime and violence, Sapiens sets off a dynamic that will either culminate in the masses of the south overwhelming his northern domains – if so, certainly not in a civilized manner, but more probably like the apocalyptic visions of his science fiction prophets – or the north trying to wipe out the southern problem, which is not going to be pleasant either, considering his ABC weaponry and that his warfares becomes increasingly wicked, cowardly and devastating, not to forget the tendency to try to solve his problems with genocide and mass-murder. His regular me-culpa-attacks and wallowing in humanisms and self-pities are mere schizophrenia-typical seizures, and as such very short lived.
