BODIES OF ENERGY, MINDS OF INFORMATION
1: The Elements of social Organisms.
In order to define the human mind, and his artistic products; and develop a biological analysis of art and science in human societies, we need to introduce the fundamental concept for a biological study of art in history: the concept of a social nation, or civilization, which in History is parallel to the concept of a social organism, born as a result of the social evolution of individuals into social groups, related by networks of energy and information.
Those networks of social energy [human goods] and social information [art], are the origin of our analysis of artists as the information cells of civilizations, and art as the social mind of civilizations. Those concepts of organic History are parallel to the concepts of individual, neuronal cells that create languages in the mind of a human being.
Social organisms in the Universe.
Social evolution is perhaps the most extended phenomena in the Universe.
Biological sciences however, have taken very long to accept this fact, influenced by the excessive importance that their founder, Darwin, gave to the fight between species. Only in the XX century with the development of sciences of information, complexity, ecology, and the analysis of ecosystems, have we realized that the Universe is based in social evolution, in the evolution of micro-organisms into social organisms. For that reason social evolution is not yet fully understood on its principles. Yet for what we know it is bound to become the most important science of this century. Since social evolution seems to be the key to understand the entire Universe in a harmonic way.
Social evolution explains the growth of species in the Universe, in scale and size, from micro-organisms to macro-organisms, from individuals into societies.
In a certain sense, all entities in the Universe are 'cellular societies', organized through networks of energy and information. This is clearly the case of the species studied by sciences, from physics to biology, where a common phenomenon occurs: the existence of parallel groups of beings organized into a single social form. Molecules are made up of atoms and electronic networks; economies are made up of human workers and consumers that reproduce and test machines guided by financial information [salaries, prices, costs]; galaxies are composed of stars, which orbit rhythmically around a central knot, or black hole, of gravitational information. Human bodies are organized by cells controlled by the nervous system. A tree is a group of leaves, branches, and roots connected by a network of energy (salvia) and information (chemical particles). Cultures are made of humans related by verbal laws and ideologies...
Those organisms come in an immense variety of sizes and species. What do they all have in common? All organisms are 'cellular societies', organized
through networks of energy and information. This is clearly the case in all the species from physics to biology, where a common phenomenon occurs: the existence of parallel groups of beings organized into a single regular formation. Molecules are made up of atoms and electronic networks; economies are made up of humans and machines; galaxies are composed of stars, which orbit rhythmically around a central knot, or black hole, of gravitational information. Human bodies are organized by cells controlled by the nervous system. A tree is a group of leaves, branches, and roots connected by a network of energy (salvia) and information (chemical particles).
In fact there are four basic elements in all organic living systems:
1. Cellular units
2. Networks of energy or organic space
3. Networks of information
4. Networks that reproduce energy and information.
When we find those elements interconnected in a organic relationship, we talk of an "organic system". The fundamental reason why science has not concluded earlier that the universe is made up of such organic systems is the lack of relativism, or arrogance of man. Mankind finds it difficult to believe that things which are not like us are able to intelligently process energy and information and only sees organic life qualities in species similar to himself. This short-sightedness is a defect of the human mind, whose universe is limited to perception and sensory experiences. What man does not perceive, is passed over. Any languages not understood are thought of as 'energy' instead of 'information'. The species that do not speak our language are "non-communicative" species. The movements which do not follow the patterns of animal movements are not self-generated motion. The scales of microcosm and macrocosm which are not human are largely ignored. Yet perceiving macrocosms, like galaxies or civilizations, and microcosms, such as cells and atoms, as organic systems is the most logical way of "unifying" our understanding of the universe. When the components of these organisms are very close together, we talk of bodies, when they are dispersed and only loosely organized, we talk of waves, societies, herds or ecosystems.
2: Main Universal organisms.
Defining an universal organism
A generic definition of a body or wave will help to clarify what we mean by a 'organic universe', composed of 'universal organisms'. Let us take a template for a micro or macrocosmic organism that differs only in the specific energy or information we put into brackets: 'A universal microcosmic or macrocosmic organism is a population of [name a particular species], related by networks of [name a language or force] information and networks of [name a kind of energy]. Fill the gaps with a specific species, language/force and energy and you can define any entity in the universe.
In modern systems which combine human societies and economic societies of machines ruled by money, economists and bankers, and stock-markets, are the nervous/financial system in charge of reproducing machines. They are the very essence of the economy. If the politicians/financiers which are in charge of the verbal/monetary networks of the human/machine organism that we call a nation, abandon their tasks, the nation collapses. They are the network/consciousness of the social nation.
Networks of monetary information, energy networks from electricity to roads, men who transfer energy and form into machines [workers and consumers] and factories of reproduction, are the three network organs of the Metal-Earth, the eco[nomic] organism. As with any other organism, we find in the eco[nomic] system a brain where most monetary information is created, the world stock market. We find company-mothers, organs of reproduction where products are reproduced. We find a organic space [Earth's-crust] which defines the body of the organism. In that body, we find specialized energy and informative cells and networks, such as workers and company-mothers of machines, warriors and weapons, roads-arteries and info-ways. We even find reproductive "behavior" in company-mothers that reproduce and evolve machines, and defend them against all other species on Earth, including men.
What Is An Organism?
All species have Energy organs, information organs and reproductive organs which allow the species to feed on energy, gather information, and reproduce. We define an organism as a "cellular" herd able to gather energy and information, and reproduce its cellular elements with reproductive networks. Yet those three systems of all organisms - energy, information and reproductive systems - do not have to be "pegged" spatially, as they are in man, to talk of an organism.
What do all those energy-information organisms share? A living species is one which is able to reproduce, and to process energy and information. When we find reproductive, energy and information organs, we talk of all of them together as an organism or living species. The difference between a living species and a system of energy-information is then clear: The system is not complete, autonomous, self-sufficient. It cannot reproduce itself. A living species can. A living species possesses all three survival organs. Living species are not only static organs of information and energy, but also body-minds that reproduce, and interact within their ecosystem, trying to gather the energy and information they need to achieve reproduction.
A spermatozoa, a virus, an ant hill, a company-mother, reproducer of machines [including its workers, raw materials and systems of energy and information] are all, in that sense, living species. organic species, which gather energy and information to reproduce their structures. A soccer match, a house, are not living species because they lack reproductive capacities. The ant hill is a living community with a queen as the center of information, able to reproduce and possessing a mass of energy-workers. It is an organism. Company-mothers, and Stocks [societies of company-mothers] are complex Eco[nomic]systems, in which humans and machines are able to reproduce and interchange energy and information with the environment. In them men act as enzymen, a biological word (enzyme+men), which explains the role of workers as reproducers of machines, the offspring of 'company-mothers'. In that sense Company-mothers are living species whose aim is to reproduce and evolve machines, not 'human organisms', since men merely play a secondary role in those organisms, which really care for machines - their offspring. Company-mothers are the main species studied by "Economics," the science of eco[nomic]systems. As Top Predators of Eco[nomic]systems, they control their organic Space, the Metal-Earth [our present world] its inhabitants, men and machines.
We can unify "cellular entities" into organisms as long as the networks of energy and information work, even when we see those cells de-segregated. The important thing is that all the cells of the organism need to be "connected" through networks of energy and information. For example an ant hill is an organism guided by a network of chemical information [pheromones] that has its center in the queen, and a network of energy distribution [the ant hill and its territory] through which energy cells move [workers]. There are also other specialized energy species called warriors. Finally, there is a reproductive system localized also in the queen [and its males] that ensures the reproduction of the ant hill species.
Since the three components of organic species exist in the ant hill, we can study an ant hill as a single organism. Without any of those organs however the ant hill is not efficient and it becomes defunct. If the queen can not reproduce, the ant hill dies. If workers do not gather energy and warriors defend the organic space of the ant hill, the ant hill dies. If the queen do not guide the workers with chemical information, the ant hill also collapses. Only when those three elements are fused the "organic species" exists. We have to widen our concept of organisms, and consider "waves" communicated with networks, also organisms, since they behave in all senses as such. Herds, societies and bodies are organisms.
In complexity we define an organic species when such networks exist: "A cellular organism exists, when there are informative and energy networks that communicate the cells of the organism. The density of energy and information communicated to those cells through the networks is higher than the energy and information the cells receive from the external world."
In the case of the ant hill for example, the information that ants receive from the queen is more important than the one they receive from the external world. The ants act on orders of the queen. They also receive energy from the ant hill where food is stored. In a body, the information cells receive from the nervous system, and the energy they receive from the blood system, is also more important than the Energy and information they receive from the external world.
In an eco[nomic]system individual homes receive more energy from the arterial systems of electric networks and roads, than from their organic spaces, except in agricultural communities. Humans also receive more information from networks of mass-media than from other human cells. We can conclude that the eco[nomic]system is becoming a body-organism.
Physical reality is only the particular perception of your eye. It misses a lot of visual information on the organism. You don't see either the blood and nervous systems of your body. Yet they are what define you as an organism. Don't trust your senses. Trust the organic systems of organisms to qualify an entity as such. It is a common error of spatial scientists to ignore the existence of organisms, except only when they see them as bodies, and fixed particles.
Yet it is not spatial closeness, but the existence of internal networks of communication among the cells of the herd-body that defines a working system as an organism. Those networks organize cellular herds into organisms, including us, organized by three main networks, the nervous [informative] system, the blood [energy] system, and the endocrine [reproductive] systems. Networks allow the organism to "grow, and evolve" due to the collection of new information and energy, that the reproductive organs "shape" into new cells, and new organisms. In this book we study one such organism, still in herd state, but progressing quickly toward body configuration; the eco[nomic]system that is becoming the body of the Metal-Earth. Indeed, if we do not see them from our "bacterial" point of view as a single species; from the higher point of view of satellite networks and celestial bodies, the Metal Earth is becoming a single body-form of cities=cellular knots, arteries=roads, and nervous systems of electronic information and electric energy.
3: Sciences: Analysis of Universal Organisms
In the next graph we classify all sciences as 'descriptions' of certain universal organisms. Scientific knowledge is the information that humanity perceives about the organisms of the universe.
Man is a specific organism with a specific range of perception of other universal organisms from quark-microcosms to galactic macrocosms. Each science studies a certain range of human information and energy. Physics studies microcosms of atoms; chemistry studies microcosms of molecules; biology studies the medium-size cosmos of 'carbolife'. While history and religion study the macrocosms of man (tribes, gods, collective information, nations). Yet the parallel form and behavior of microcosmic atoms [physics] and macrocosmic masses [astronomy] proves that the same organic laws rule all species of the universe. After all the key to the entire process of existence is information, carried by ¥-rays which have a flexibility of sizes that makes possible all scales, in living organisms...
The total universe is defined as a game of infinite social herds that communicate through information networks in order to feed on fields of energy.
Each parallel universe, each ecosystem of species of a certain energy size and informative range, is studied by a science. Each science is the 'description' of organisms of a similar size and form, their cells and their networks. All them follow the morphological laws of organisms.
4: Bodies of energy, minds of information.
In the Universe all species, are composed of a center of information or brain, and a center of energy or body. The morphological characteristics of both kind of elements are similar in any species.
Brains of information are cyclical, small, often of spherical forms, like your eyes and brains.
Bodies of energy are physical, bigger, planes or lines.
We could extend this duality to almost any organic system of the Universe.
Why bodies are lineal and brains cyclical? This morphological feature of Universal Organisms derives logically from the internal structure of organisms.
A brain is the center of the informative networks.
A body is the center of the energy networks.
Yet since energy and information have certain morphologic and behavioral characteristics, those characteristics allow us to recognize bodies and brains.
- Information has a form which is 'perceivable' and easy to store. The main characteristic of anything that is used as information, is the fact that a certain organ of information can perceive it and store it.
This implies certain morphological patterns: Information has a lot of form, tends to be small, and can be divided into units, that allow quantification. Information is 'quiet'; so the organ of information can focus it and analyze it. This means information species tend to have curves, and angles. All together means that the perfect unit of information in fact is a disk, cycle, or sphere.
The main organs of information in species are spherical, such as your eye, or brain, or the coin, standard unit of monetary information.
- On the other hand Energy moves. So energy bodies extend in space, as they move, and feed.
Energy is the equivalent to biological food, which fuels a species, and allows its movement.
Energy is the body that moves the brain of information
So energy and space are synonymous. Since a plane is the geometry that extends more in space, and the line the geometry that moves faster, with lesser friction, both are the fundamental forms of energy-bodies.
As a consequence of those properties of energy and information, we recognize the bodies and minds of species, because they have also a clear morphology which corresponds to that of generic energy and information.
How do individual cells organize communication in complex organisms? How do atoms evolve into the molecular social plane, and molecules into the cellular social plane, cells into the organic social plane, organs into the body, and bodies into the social plane of collective existence? Easily. The organization of information-energy species in the Universe takes place through processes of social evolution of individuals into herds.
5. Memorial Times, the fundamental particle of the Universe.
Discontinuous space and discontinuous time, the key to understand reality.
We conclude that Time and information, and Space and energy, are related parallel concepts, which suffice to describe the composition of any species of the Universe. The key to understand that parallelism between time and information and space and energy is the correction of an error that has dragged our scientific knowledge of those 4 elements for centuries. The belief that space-time is a continuous surface. In reality space is divided in 'quanta of energy', and time is shaped by ∞ cycles of information. When we understand the discontinuity and multiplicity of spaces, and cycles of time, then it is very easy to relate times and informative cycles, and spaces and energy quanta, as we do already in biological sciences and quantic physics.
We indeed affirm that the Universe is composed of quantic cycles of temporal information, 'Brains' that Move, quantic pieces of energetic space, "Bodies'. Both together shape Universal organisms, we have baptized with the acronym of those letters, as Times. Which means we are not in space-time but we are made of spatial energy and temporal information. We are made of space and time, so we are Times, organisms of temporal information and spatial energy.
The world times is very suggestive of what we really are: brains moving bodies, evolving bodies and controlling them through languages. We have to look at reality from the dominance of time, of information, of languages, not of space, of energy, of bodies. For that reason the fundamental particle of the Universe is a Times, a Temporal memory, a language that resumes reality and controls it. We are spiritual beings. Space does not matter. Times only matters. Events are the essence of reality. History, evolution, repetition of memorial cycles...
Movement commands space. The will of times.
Temporal Information commands energetic space. This is clear.
Times moving, Temporal information and energetic space moving together, in each and all the infinite species of the Universe - that is all. Times are all around us. Wherever you look, you can see them, in their spiritual quest for the impossible immortality of his memories, that all times desire to repeat, to reproduce forever.
Repetition is the key to all times, the will of times.
Abstract scientists can use the aseptic term: cyclical inertia. Lineal Inertia, the simplistic view of Galilee and Newton, is merely an interval of a long cycle. All is cycling, and the fact that once the cycle is completed any form has repeated the cycle, reproduced again the cycle, is the ultimate will of times:
To perpetuate your cycles of existence.
And yet, in those cycles a Times can intersect with other times cycling, and it can become the victim of a big cycle that wants to use your 'organic movement' as energy 'to feed his own cycling'. So cycles are always in danger of being erased.
Enter the game of the will of times. We all want to move, but we have obstacles, and we need energy to move, and information to perceive, where we are going.
Those are the elements of the game, Energetic space, temporal information and movement. When you play good, you are a times, when you play bad, you are dead, become absorbed as static space, by the other player.
The organic behavior of species, ties up space and time.
Despite being discontinuous space quanta and time cycles appears to us together. So we could wonder, what ties them together?. The answer is the organic behavior, the communication established between the species of space and time.
Times are organic memories.
How can we describe the behavior of those Times? We will use a word that might surprise you: Memorial organicism.
What times do is what intuitively we know as Times we do: repeat our cycles of existence, become memories in action , reproduce our movements, and cycles of feeding, and perceiving, of living and dying...
The essence of organicism is reproduction. Yet reproduction is the repetition of a form, and repetition of forms take place in all the regions of the Universe. Atoms repeat their cycles, electrons cycle once and again with the same form, around the atom. Molecules vibrate around similar distances. Herds gather in similar patterns. Men reproduce their children. Machines are reproduced in company-mothers. In a simpler or complex manner, repetition of form is the will of Times.
Times cycle over space, repeating with cyclical inertia their forms of existence.
Memorial reproduction is the essence of space and time, of energy and Information. Information exists by cycling, forming space, once and again, and again.
All combinations of spatial energy and temporal information, all Times show organic behavior, the kind of behavior that defines living organisms, because the essence of Time is to cycle once and again over Energetic space.
organicism implies the communication of Temporal Information of form on a surface of Energetic Space.
That is the 'engine of History' and the Universe at large. Reproduction, repetition, existence.
The thought of God... Yet what are the details of that organic memory, can we analyze that repetition of form, in its smaller components? Can we consider a few more events as fundamental as reproduction? Yes indeed.
We can divided the organicism of reproduction in minor arrows, needed to complete the reproduction of form.
This happens because to reproduce a form you have to repeat both your energy and information in other zone of space-time, and so reproduction is in essence a complex movement that requires two elements: energy and information.
So we divide in fact reproduction in 4 sub-arrows or ties of organicism: Feeding on energy, perceiving information, repeating that energy and information (reproduction in itself) and evolving, tying together multiple units of times into a complex social organism (reproduction of complex organisms made of multiple units). Let us consider them in more detail.
6. organicism of Times: feeding, perceiving, reproducing, evolving.
A word defines dynamically the Universe of Times: reproductive organicism.
A complex action that starts as almost everything else in the Universe, with the interchange of Energy and Information, the two components of the Universe.
All species in the Universe interchange dynamically energy and information. Their reactions and existence are guided by such minimal organic behavior, even in those forms, such as planets or atomic species, in which we do not recognize reproductive organicism at first glance.
What is organicism. The 4 ties of organic existence.
Reproductive organicism - the capacity to show memorial, organic behavior proper of all times - could be defined on the view of most biologists, that study carbolife, by 4 attributes, that we shall call dynamic arrows or organic dimensions, orTimes of Times, since they tie together the different elements of a Times species into a single event or organism.
Those organic ties needed to reproduce a memorial form are:
- Feeding on Energy. Which ties up preys and predators.
- Perceiving information. Which ties up forces and sensorial organs.
- Reproducing. Which communicates energy and information between similar forms, tying them up in couples or parents and sons.
- And evolving socially into complex organisms which ties up similar forms, cells, that share energy/information communication among them till reproducing a complex organism.
As we shall see those 4 ties go from the most simple to the most complex: the reproduction of a social organism, and so we can consider them 'analytic steps' of the ultimate process of the Universe, the memorial reproduction of a times of existence.
Those ties of organicism are indeed the essence of life, the essence of Times.
Biologists have come to the conclusion that most living species spend their lives searching for those 4 organic ties. They try to feed on energy, they try to perceive information. They try to communicate and reproduce... And they gather through communication into social groups, or organisms.
When you see a TV, a movie, or read a book, you are perceiving information.
When you work or feed, you are obtaining energy to take care of your organic needs.
When you love or have sex, you are taking care of your third organic arrow: reproduction.
When you live in a society, that organizes itself to achieve those goals, you are evolving into a social organism.
The same happens with a lion that hunts for food, observes the savanna, loves his lioness, and socializes in a group to achieve those goals easier. The differences between him and you are in the details - for example, what kind of energy and information you process - but not in the quality of the process.
Both, the lion and you are moved by one of the 4 arrows of organicism: Feeding on energy, Perceiving information, Reproducing your information and energy in other place of the Universe; and gathering in social groups and organisms created with similar individuals that try to achieve those common goals.
organicism is consequence of the space-time structure of the Universe.
You might wonder why those 4 arrows of organicism exist. The answer is simple: because the two components of the Universe, space and time, are organic components. And so our properties of organicism are properties of the Space and Time components of the Universe.
We will relate those 4 basic arrows of biological organicism to those two parameters, by relating the concept of a quanta of space with the concept of energy, and the concept of a cycle of time, with a cycle of form, of information.
In this manner organic space=energy, and organic time=cycles of information become the basis for the 4 arrows of organic behavior: perception of time, or perception of information are synonymous; feeding on energy, absorption of space are synonymous, reproduction and communication of space-time and reproduction of energy and information are synonymous.
To understand those 4 arrows of organicism we will relate them in two groups: Reproduction and social communication are the most complex arrows of organicism. Feeding and informing, are the simplest dimensions, connected to each other.
Indeed, those two phenomena, feeding on space, and perceiving informative time are related phenomena.
They are what we call the two simple arrows of organicism.
You absorb energy=space and trans-form it into cycles of information. The dynamic transformation of space into time, of energy into information is the fundamental process of the organic Universe. Since when you feed on energy, actually you are perceiving that energy, and forming it, in-forming. And so perception of in-form-ation is directly related to the arrow of energy feeding:
Energy feeding => Perception of form.
The same 2 parameters of spatial energy and temporal information are also the origin of complex organicism, of the dimensions of reproduction and social communication.
To reproduce is to repeat your energy and information in other zone of the Universe. An initial cellular species (call it a seminal cell, a first big-bang atom, a crystal) replicates its energy and information into many cells, and once it has reproduced in great numbers, those cells communicate energy/information again and organize now into a herd of 'clonic' beings that finally becomes an organism.
So we relate what we will call the two complex arrows of organicism:
Communicative, cellular Reproduction of energy/information = Social evolution.
organicism in this manner is self-proved by the fact that we live in a Universe of space-time, of spatial energy and temporal information; and organicism is merely the result of the combination and transformation of quanta of space into cycles of time and vice versa
7. Strategies of survival: Social Evolution and Darwinian Devolution
For all what have been said, about organisms, nature proves ad infinitum that species evolve socially, and such strategies are superior strategies of survival, to the individual, selfish pursuit of energy and Information.
The individual 'bacteria' might be stronger than the social cell. As the individual top predator human warrior might be stronger than the community on which it preys. Yet when social cells organize they are stronger than individual bacteria. So happens in history when humans organize in societies based in social evolution, in love, in communication. They can defeat the primitive, arrogant, "homo bacterium warrior".
I remember a beautiful film called the "7 Samurai". A group of peasants become organized and finally despite their individual cowardice, are able to defend a mass of Homo Bacteria Bandits. That is in essence the way the Universe fights individuals: through social evolution among similar species, able to communicate.
It follows that there are two Universal Mandates that all species follow. Two mandates that are opposed, as information and energy are opposed.
The Darwinian mandate of "feeding" that individuals of different species follow to become informed and perceive.
The Social Mandate of "Evolution" that individuals of the same species follow to become herds and bodies that are able to hunt better other species.
The 'Moral' behavior Of Social Organisms
Thus we find in organic ecosystems a certain logical pattern of behavior that enhances the survival of the ecosystem, and so it is repeated "ad infinitum."
- Similar "cells" of the same species communicate energy and information, to evolve into more complex social organisms. We could say they "love" each other.
- Species which are different, abuse each other as relative energy. We might say they "hate" each other.
What is the origin of those "ethical-survival rules" of organisms? To exist you have to feed in energy and 'perceive' and inform yourself about the Universe. Yet we said that information is more powerful than energy. So if you can receive a certain force as information you will rather become informed that absorb the force as energy. For example if you get light as energy you are a plant. If you can decode it as information, you are an animal. You prefer that.
Yet all questions require the proper answer, all information requires to possess organs of information similar to the species that emits the information; organs able to "translate" the force of communication into information.
To communicate the emitter and the receptor must be essentially the same species, or at least must have similar informative and communicative organs.
So the way you relate to other species will depend of your "similarity" with them.
When beings can communicate information and decode it [because their organs of decoding are similar, are parallel] we have a phenomena of social evolution, of love, which is communication and understanding.
Yet when beings are very different and cannot decode their communication, they absorb that force of communication as a energy, and feed on it. They consider the communicative species an energy source, a form of food, and act in consequence as hunters. Then we talk of Darwinian devolution, of hate, of victims.
In cases of social evolution the population of a certain species will socialize, and become a more complex organism, sharing their information and energy, often "hunting" together. The population will become a society more powerful than the individuals. Social evolution will enhance the power of the herd that survives better.
Social evolution in history is the rule between "parallel individuals" in tribes and nations. Yet it is also the rule in all "Universal Organisms."
On the other hand, Darwinian devolution is the rule between man and all other species which man "ab=uses" as energy. We tend to consider a living being, only a parallel being, very similar to us.
We ignore, despise and use as energy all other perceptive beings whose communication we cannot decode.
Both behavior, social evolution, and Darwinian devolution, are natural to the Universe.
Social Evolution: How micro-organisms become macro-organisms?
Many times we observe that a herd starts as a wave. It then becomes more dense in its networks=organs of energy and information and organizes itself socially into "bodies." The difference between a body, a wave or herd is in the organization of systems of distribution of energy and information. They are more dense in efficient bodies than in loose waves. Which is better, a body or a herd? Bodies have survival advantages over herds, because in bodies all cells act in harmony, controlled and guided by dense networks of energy and information. Our cells move together under the command of a single nervous system. A herd has to communicate in a more primitive way. It reacts to external stimuli with less precision. For that reason bodies prey on herds; and all herds tend to evolve towards bodies that survive better. So the efficient cellular body of a whale preys on a wave of krill; an efficient body-nation such as America preyed on the waves of Indigenous Indians. Yet in both cases, in a herd of loosely organized beings, or in a particle or body of very closely knit cells, we find the same phenomena - the existence of a mass of beings joined by networks. When studying organisms we talk either of herds of cells, or bodies of cells, that organize themselves through networks of energy [like the blood system, or the road ways of the Metal-Earth, the force systems that join molecules, the channels of cells that distribute energy to the organelles], and networks of information [the nervous system, the infoways of the Metal-Earth, the quantic numbers that distribute electrons around atoms, or the genetic material that distributes information inside cells].
Social evolution begins when a species "radiates," [a biological term for a massive reproduction of a species] and multiplies its numbers in parallel sons. Then once the herd has saturated its "organic space," it organizes its many "cellular beings" into societies. Societies are just "herds of beings" that use networks of energy collection and networks of informative perception. This is the first step towards the creation of a body, or complex organism. The herd requires communication among its species to avoid conflicts when hunting energy and information. That communication is facilitated by the network.
As the herd multiplies, in order to survive with an increasingly limited supply of energy, the society organizes better networks of communication. On the other hand, energy supplies are variable. Networks store and distribute energy to avoid wasting precious resources. Since herds multiply, those without a system of communication and the ability to gather and distribute energy become less-efficient systems. So, sooner or later, dense herds become a social body, and exhibit those two type of networks, or as non-efficient species become extinct. We talk of herds or waves, when organs of communication are still in a formative stage, or are small in power. We talk of bodies or particles when those organs of information are dominant over the herd, so that they guide it.
In history, this means that at a certain stage of the human 'radiation', there was a differentiation of human cells, with castes belonging to networks of energy and information on top. Men became prophets of verbal information, traders of monetary information, farmers of energy, and warriors of metal energy. In your body certain cells become nervous-informative cells and blood-energy cells.
Social evolution into macro-species of life.
Those social laws of evolution are also natural to the species on Earth.
This means in a practical sense, that after bacteria filled the Earth, they started their own social evolution into herds of bacteria, and then into organisms in which certain cells specialized as networks of energy and information, carry those products to individual cells. It was the birth of living organisms, which again shaped the Earth to their image and resemblance.
The Earth became a continuous surface of plants, which reigned supreme, diversified in multiple species, and took to the limit their size as organs of light-energy.
Yet certain plants who were more mobile, learnt how to guide their actions with light, how to find zones rich in preying energy guided but light, and the animal was born.
As the animal preyed on plants it changed again the look of the Earth's ecosystem.
Again a new top predator shaped with his actions the external form of the entire planet.
Let us put you an example of this:
Before elephants and lions came, most of the savanna was probably a forest. Yet elephants built their tracks on the jungle destroying those forests. They ate trees, and slowly transformed the forest into a savanna to suit their needs.
When the lion came, it also changed the shape of that ecosystem, in a more dynamic way. Suddenly herds of animals were terrified by lions. They gathered in groups and moved as living waves when lions went hunting. The dynamic shapes of those herd are therefore shaped to accommodate the rhythm and cycles of feeding of the strongest hunter, the lion. The lion and the elephant shape the animal and plant life of the savanna.
The ecosystem of animal life lasted for another few hundred millions of years; and each new animal species shaped it to its image and resemblance both in water ecosystems [oceans, rivers] as in land ecosystems [continents, islands]. Many micro-ecosystems were created and destroyed. Some isolated ecosystem survived longer, with primitive species, such as those of Australia, or the Galapagos, that Darwin studied.
It then happened that a new predator, man appeared. At the beginning he hardly changed the ecosystem, in a different way to which lions, elephants or sharks had changed them. He merely became the top predator. Herds moved trying to avoid him. He changed the looks of the savanna. It was the Paleolithic in which men acted as the lion of the Earth. Then he changed the places where plants grew as the elephant did. After all he was just an Animal of the II Earth. It was the Neolithic when men acted as the elephants of the Earth.
However, at a certain point he discovered metal, a strong substance that multiplied enormously our capacity to transform reality, to change, destroy and prey on nature. He started a massive transformation of Earth ecosystems, towards what we call the III Earth. The ecosystems of metal of the present world, the eco[nomic]system, the Metal-earth.
The law of social evolution is the law of social religions.
When we apply those laws to human social organisms, it turns out that oddly enough for those who 'despise verbal information' such as scientists, and economists, the law of social evolution is the same law of social religions: 'love=communicate with each other'.
Love indeed, not competence is the law between cells of the same species. Something economists, scientists, politicians and the military should remember, when they apply to mankind the concept of competence, which should never apply between human beings, that belong to the same species. The reason of that deformation of the Universal Law that the verbal masters of classic religions so well understood, will be explained latter in this book.
8. The main laws of Times, applied to the evolution of languages.
Since all what exists are Times, organic times, organic forms cycling, and playing the game of existence, we can consider some basic laws of that game of existence (explained in detail in "organicuniverse.com), that affect also the evolution of languages, which are after all, merely species whose content of Information is much bigger than its content of Space.
Let us consider them, even if we will not use the novel terminology of "Time Theory" to explain the history of artistic species.
Biological radiations of Times.
A organic model of the Universe based in Times unifies the jargons of Physics and biology - of quantic theory of Times and Evolutionary theories of behavior, social evolution and fight among species - and so it unifies the nature of all Times. All of them feed. All of them perceive. All of them reproduce. We could say then that the biological Universe exists as a constant game of reproductive 'biological radiations' of Times, composed of energy and information, put together into organs [bodies of energy, minds of information]. Species with better information and energy organs survive. And species with lesser information and energy organs, become extinct. They are unstable particles and compounds, in abstract jargon, of chemistry and physics. Or mutations that do not survive in biology. Or dreams that cannot be made real in the world of informative thoughts. Or non-efficient products extinct in the informative ecosystem of prices. Or human tribes that belong to societies of human clones, that are not well organized...
In this manner there is a constant evolution towards more complex species, and herds, with better informative languages of communication, and bodies of energy, in each parallel Universe.
Repetition is now reproduction, two words which in fact mean the same.
And evolution is now social, communicative evolution of herds, into organisms. Because once the Universe reproduced atoms, it continued the creation of more complex structures - molecules, planets, galaxies... through social games of communication, based in a few forces, common to all organisms.
The best way to describe the reproductive, memorial organicism of species, is the concept of a biological radiation. Biologists say that species reproduce in growing numbers, creating biological radiations of a species. Times do also reproduce in organic radiations, cycling and repeating their form, once and again, expanding those forms in their ecosystems.
The Universe is made of such biological radiations of temporal species. Radiations of Times, become herds, that reproduce and feed in surfaces of energy, shaping the forms of the perceived Universe. Which is nothing else, nothing more than the sum of all those discontinuous Times, repeating their cycles of existence.
The big bang was a radiation of the most simple times known to man, the atom, that took place in several phases. The first radiation was of light, of photons. The second radiation was of electrons. The third radiation was of masses. The most complex radiations of atoms and molecules grew in societies so big as planetoids, so complex as DNA-societies [human bodies]. DNA radiations started species of living beings. In the world of masses radiations grew into stars and galaxies...
Almost every phenomena of death and life perceived in the Universe have a common cause: the radiation of a being that feeds in other radiations, used as energy, over which the radiating being reproduces himself.
Proves that more and more phenomena are caused by radiations appear day by day.
Certain phenomena that before were explained in abstract manner now can also be explained as radiations. The Bible speaks of such radiations in a poetic sense. The first day, the first radiation was of light. Then light broke away from dark matter. The day from the night. The radiation of mass grew into beings, more and more complex, till bringing mankind.
Those were the days of creation, the days of radiations, and the writer of Genesis understood that radiations, are the nature of the creative Universe. "Grow=become more complex, and multiply=radiate" was his advice to man.
What radiates is an organic species, a complex system-body made of a radiation of 'cellular species' smaller species. Molecules radiate over smaller atoms, men over smaller cells, Ideological Gods over smaller men.
So each science studies a radiation: history studies the radiation of men, biology radiations of cells, chemistry radiations of molecules, astronomy radiations of atoms and stars, and planets.
The Earth's radiations of beings have evolved through a series of discontinuous: bacteria, plants, sea animals, land animals, amphibian, reptiles and dinosaurs, mammals, men, machines... Since in fact radiations are not only of life, but of all forms. There are also metallic radiations, radiations of machines and products reproduced by company-mothers in the economical system.
You could understand the Universe under the concept of radiation. We affirm that the Universe exists as a constant game of radiations of species, who extinct other species. Radiations grow constantly out of the energy of the species they extinct. Yet what is the nature of the species that radiate? How that nature defines the radiation?
All the radiations of the Universe, have however certain elements in common. Those elements and common laws of Times radiations.
The morphology of Times.
As a consequence of the morphologic properties of Temporal information that implodes spatial energy into form, and the morphologic properties of Spatial energy, that expands information into spatial extension, we can relate the elements of the Universe to some basic morphological shapes.
Energy expands, as when you explode a bomb, or you feed, exploding any form into its components. Or when you move expanding the Universal space (galactic expansion). So energy forms are big, expansive, and occupy geometrical forms that have a great surface (such as lines, planes, cubes and in general all lineal shapes).
On the other hand information implodes as when you focus light into information, or when you evolve your cells tying them into a close-knotted organism, or as when you create a form, cutting materials into smaller pieces that then you tie, you peg together. So we can talk of information as an implosive, contracting, process. And informative forms become then small, implosive, and occupy geometrical shapes that allow a great volume in a minimal surface, as in the case of spheres (such as eyes, brains, and cameras), or broken geometries (such as words, paintings, and chip circuits).
The result of those morphologies are evident. Species specialized in Temporal Information are spherical and small. Species specialized in Energetic Space are bid and planar.
We will call them generically Bodies of Energetic Space (planar big components of Times such as your planar, lineal body), or Brains of Temporal Information (small cyclical components of Times, as your small spherical Head).
It is then evident that Times, are made of a small cyclical TI, and a big planar ES, and together bodies and brains, pieces of Temporal information and Energetic Space shape a Times.
All Times are made with Temporal Informative brains, and Energetic, Spatial Bodies. So there are no TI or ES alone, but Times, TI=ES, species with TI-brains and ES-bodies in harmony with each other (=).
We will show you in this book how the morphology of all TI=ES is exactly a combination of cycles and lines. So you have a cyclical TI-Head, and an ES-body. Such combinations are everywhere, from spermatozoids to trees, we see cyclical Heads and lineal bodies. This also happens in artistic species, even in letter and numbers. There are made of lines and cycles. And the next question we make is: Why we find in certain ages, more TIes, more cyclical forms, and in other ages, more tiES, more lineal spatial forms? There is any logic, bio-logic order, that explains the different morphologies of species. Indeed, there is, and it is fundamental to understand the evolution of languages. It is the law of 3 creations or law of the 3 ages.
Creative laws based in the duality of space/time,energy/information.
How species evolve? Why certain forms come from another?
The existence of 3 networks in all organisms, the energy, reproductive and information networks of any organism, are responsible of the paths of evolution of species, of its processes of creation and extinction.
To understand the process of Evolution of Universal organisms, we have to understand the Law of Creation. It is a simple law, and yet it is perhaps the most important Law of the Universe. It explains why certain species are born in the tree of evolution - what is the plan behind the Creation of the Universe.
A very simple plan.
Forget the chaotic explanations traced by 'abstract scientists' that deny any order, any planing, any living nature, any intelligence to the Universe. Most of those theories are caused by the Human Galilean paradox, of self-importance that tends to disregard the rest of the Universe as a chaotic place without intelligence and logic. Scientists prefer to see chaos and freedom, to feel themselves free, and irresponsible with their acts, as the only intelligence of the Universe.
However the Universe have laws, plans, and actions which have to be known to be able to control the future , in a responsible manner. One of those laws, is the way the Universe creates new species.
It is in fact a rather simple system based in the biology of organic Times.
There are only 3 elements in any organic Times, an energy zone or body, an information zone or brain, and networks that balance and communicate both species, reproducing them.
You have a nervous/informative network, an energy/digestive network, and a reproductive/communicative/blood network. You are the consciousness of those networks. And those networks explain the 3 ages of your existence from birth to extinction. They also explain the evolution of species through morphologies that mimic those 3 ages.
9. The law of 3 ages. The law of 3 creations.
- The law of the 3 ages. All species go through 3 ages, with discontinuous periods of change in your energy and information parameters: youth in which energy dominates, maturity in which the networks of energy and information are in balance, and information, the third age when energy is consumed, and formal wrinkles and death appears. The law is proved by the changing morphology of all Universal organisms of all species that adopt those formal shapes as time goes by. It relates to a fundamental law of evolution in time, that tends to create 3 kind of organic species, or 3 kind of temporal forms.
We perceive that phenomena externally as the 3 ages of the being, that becomes older, informed, wrinkled.
Watching those particular Organic systems is obvious that each age participates of the morphological characters of energy and information.
For example, young people are full of energy. They are in the Energy horizon of the species. They are bigger, have little temporal knowledge. They are simple in form. While Old people are full of information. They are in the information horizon of the species. They are smaller, have a lot of temporal knowledge. They move little, and have a lot of wrinkles.
Finally mature people, have such perfection and balance between the two elements of the organic Universe, between their content of energy-space, and temporal information, that they can reproduce the entire TI=ES, in all its components. Hence the second age is the age of reproduction. The forms of any TI=ES in that age, is a realistic, harmonic, efficient combination of lines and cycles.
Again we perceive that form as 'beautiful', an objective concept of harmony between energy and information lines and cycles. So in all organisms the mature, realistic, classic age of balance, or reproductive age, is the most perfect age.
Human beings intuitively see that. We like spiral galaxies, mature people, realist art, which is called classic art and takes place in mature civilizations.
The 3 ages of Times are therefore related to the 3 networks developed by all organisms:
- The energy network [i.e.: your blood system, the Golgi systems in cells]
- The information network [i.e.: your nervous system, the RNA networks in cells].
- The balanced, reproductive network [i.e.: your endocrine system of hormones, and sexual organs, the DNA molecules in cells].
The information network feeds, and 'knots' the energy body, as the organism of Times lives. So the predominance of information over energy, displaces the active center of the organism, from the network of energy to the reproductive network, to the information network.
The laws of Survival: Balance of energy and Information.
However even if information dominates in the long term, in the short term, once a species is created, it will develop networks of communication between body and brain (energy, reproductive and information networks) that will create a balance between both organs, symbiotic and complementarity. Keeping that balance is the best strategy to make the individual life of a Ti=es species to last.
A fundamental law derived of the existence of bodies and brains, of space and time as equal parameters in all Ti=Es, is the law of balance, between energy and information parameters in any Ti=Es (ecosystem, species, region) of the Universe. Indeed, we said that only in the middle age when S=T, e=i, the Times is immortal, balanced and reproduces. So all systems that last try to keep that balance. In biology that is self evident, in what biologists call homeostasis. The fact that to keep a biological organism alive, it has to keep its energy-information relationships called organic constants in a narrow margin of minimal change. So happens to other species. For example in physics the lorentz transformations show how when atoms, forces and particles move beyond the limits of energy (c speed) and still information (O Kelvin degrees) a particle explodes and dies.
Death , we conclude, is then the imbalance between energy-information.
S= T, i=E is the law of survival of any ecosystem or organism in the Universe. We will bring that law constantly when explaining the nature of biological death in History, of individuals, civilizations and even the entire ecosystem of History in which today we approach a process of death by excessive reproduction of information and knowledge.
The law of 3 creations.
When we consider species as cells of a collective organism (so history is the human species born from the first human who talked, evolved into multiple cells and social organisms called civilizations, and maybe dying in the future ), we talk of the law of 3 creations that mimics the 3 ages of individuals for the entire collective species. It is the law that in fact explains the 3 ages of art, and civilizations. Let us consider it in more detail.
- The Law of the 3 creations: Given the ternary nature of organic networks, the process of mutational creation of new species tends to originate 3 subspecies from an initial form: one specialized in energy, one with a higher content of information, and a third species which is balanced in energy and information. It is indeed very common to find 3 and only 3 subspecies in all kind of organisms in the Universe... 3 quarks; 3 elements in an atom [energy electrons, communicative light, informative nucleons]; 3 subspecies from the initial reptiles [reptiles, birds, mammals], and so on...
Those 3 subspecies however dominate in different ages. So first reptiles dominated, then birds, and finally mammals, the informative subspecies.
In general thus we find that the 3 subspecies of reality can be observed in living organisms together, what scientists call synchronic analysis, and through 3 ages, of relative dominance in diachronic analysis.
So happens in history, art, and the evolution of languages.
Let us consider the case of the evolution of mankind species to illustrate those fundamental laws that we will need to study the evolution of languages.
