AMAZING ARTICLES #40: SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY -EVOLUTION
"there is no better tomorrow if we do not learn today."
People use to say, "Errare Humanum Est", meaning, "it is in
nature to make mistakes", or in a simpler form, "people make mistakes"--the first translation is
closer to the original meaning. Note that the words are 2500 years old, and they were
first "implemented" in
our Civilization by the great Hellenic Civilization/Culture.
Now that we do know that there are levels of intelligence in our society [read Articles
37, 38, and
39], it may be
interesting to analyze how people understand the words presented in bold italics
above. The Level 0 individuals are out of discussion from the very
because they do not understand anything. The average intelligence people, having a solid Level 5 of intelligence,
understand and use the words, "Errare Humanum Est," as an excuse for mistakes.
the average people hate deeply any mistakes--possibly more than anything else; this is a psychological
characteristic--therefore, they do not appreciate those great, important words; they
just hate them!
To a Level 10 intelligence, the mentioned words fit into a specific, strange pattern. For example, the
following words were also implemented into our Civilization by the old Latin
atom, electron, analysis, system, structure, synthesis,
democracy, humanity, person, radius, data, quantum, matrix, formula, antenna,
nucleus, stimuli, Universe, Nebula, planet, solar, spectrum, corollary, vacuum, apparatus, automaton, etc.
Of course, there are way more Latin and Greek origin words in English,
similar in importance to the ones exemplified, but their form and
are not the point we want to stress. Note that
above set of words describes fairly accurate THE HIGHEST ACHIEVEMENTS IN SCIENCE TODAY!
In other words, it is simply
impossible those ancient philosophers knew the complete/total meaning of the above words, given their primitive level of
Civilization. Better said, their level of Civilization should have been a lot less developed, because they were
supposed to be primitive! We are talking here about 2500 years ago,
people; this is 2000 years before the Renaissance cultural
revolution! Something is not right there.
To a Level 10 intelligence, the words "Errare Humanum Est" trigger an alarm bell
because the corollary
of the words sounds this way: "Only the inhuman (an
apparatus, an automaton, a machine, or an artificial intelligence)
doesn't make mistakes." This is not just a simple misinterpretation, because those Hellenic
philosophers were way more intelligent than we are today. Should they wanted just an excuse for mistakes, it was far
more appropriate to use an impersonal form; for example, "mistakes are unavoidable," or "mistakes
should happen sooner or later." However, the stress in the above words is on the "human factor". Note
that the antonym to human is "inhuman", or "machine"!
The question is, did the ancient philosophers know about machines? Yes, they did, because we
they used mechanical machines, gears [the Antikythera mechanism], steam power, optic systems, unknown
chemical reactions, and hydraulics.
However, the new thorny question is,
did the Hellenic scientists know MORE than
what we know they did? Given the above set of words, and their precise, specific meanings, it appears they did.
[Consider the name "Ter-Ra": this means "the third Planet from the
So, the Latin philosophers knew about our
Planet, and about our
Solar System, 2000 years before we become scientifically aware of that. It
is possible we may discover one day how advanced the Latin culture really was; for the time being, we should note
they were way too advanced for those primitive days.
Now, the topics in Articles A37,
A38, and A39 were presented from a moment-in-time perspective; in other words,
static. There is, however, a certain, dynamic Global Picture associated to the topics. For example,
consider the following.
person A has a Level 6 of intelligence, and he meets with person B having a Level 4 of intelligence. After the
first few moments of the contact, person A notices that person B has an inferior intelligence level,
therefore he starts
smiling a bit amused at person B.
Person B notices that person A is smiling without no apparent reason,
he realizes that person A considers himself superior; further, person B becomes annoyed, or even angry with person A.
That is the "dynamic aspect" of our human interactions.
It is presented above in its most basic (or
simple) form: superior intelligence is amused by inferior intelligence, and inferior intelligence is angered by
the superior one. That dynamic aspect has tremendous implications at society level. In a past Amazing
that around 1974 the development of our Civilization was shifted, intentionally, towards the wrong
direction. One of the means to implement that terrible shift is the "Resume system"
["Curriculum Vitae" in European cultures] we
use today to nominate/appoint people in various jobs--of course, the important aspect are the "power
positions", although the "system" works globally, for the entire society.
The Resume system works this way: regardless of how good or bad a
is, it is the human factor, the
interviewer, the one to decide. [The Resume thing is frequently and commonly "tailored" for each
specific job.] Further, the human factor tends to like/favor lower levels of intelligence, and to dislike/disfavor
the superior ones.
If you give it some time, say, a few decades, then
our society becomes ruled/managed by low
levels intelligence people; in other words, by corruption, imposture, nepotism, etc. In addition, the levels of
morality, education, and justice start to degrade, since they are actively and permanently eroded by "the
persons in charge". [Consider as an example the USA movies
produced since 1974: the language used and the topics/subjects
displayed are increasingly, year after year, insanely vulgar.]
Lastly, the anger against high intelligence level persons becomes hate, and the few
unfortunate existing intellectuals are labeled as "the enemies of the system". This is no joke, nor
a literary speculation: it is our very reality! You may not feel it, but rest
assured that some of us do--and it is incredibly painful (well,
No doubt about it, the results are terrible for the entire society (even
for the entire Planet). The life of the persecuted individuals is
little or not important--excepting a few totally atypical individuals--because
intelligent people will
always manage to make a living of some
sort. For society, however, things go from bad to worse, until a cataclysmic social event/trend
should change it
in a radical way. This is how things worked throughout our History, for a few thousands years,
and they appear to be much
like the random plays of chance to the average intelligence--read
HURRAN INVASION for details.
Naturaly, there are many means to correct the current degradation process: some are "normal", others are
"exceptional". Let's take a look at our current political situation.
Mr. George Walker Bush is elected the 43rd USA
President in 2000 by the average USA society. Note that Mr. Bush was preferred to the alternative,
Mr. Al Gore,
although Mr. Gore is a mountain of humanity compared to Mr. Bush. Humanity
and intelligence are one and the same thing; even more, one without the
other cannot be defined as being anything.
However, in 2004, Mr. Bush is reelected by the average USA citizens, and this time he is preferred to
Mr. John Kerry who
had a few good levels of intelligence above him. Today, Mr. Bush is asking for help from anybody, because he
does not know what to do, to do things right.
He managed to ruin USA [well, almost], he started
two totally useless
wars, in Iraq and Afghanistan, and he had (involuntarily) killed a few thousand USA soldiers plus
a few hundred thousand Iraqi citizens
[children, ladies, and old people are included into "the lot"]. Note, however, that Mr. Bush was, and he
still is, firmly convinced that he did a lot of good to the USA, and to the
Meanwhile, the average USA citizens have finally understood that they made two big mistakes, one after the other, and
they want it over. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way.
In all pictures presented above there is
something fundamental missing: intelligence! Without a little bit of intelligence, nothing is going to work today, or
tomorrow. For example, the quick and obvious solution is to elect a Democrat President
for the next term, but that solves exactly nothing. The problem in USA and
anywhere else in the World is, high level intelligence is repelled systematically, while the under average
intelligence people are encouraged to "compete". Of course, the under average intelligence people are
always going to win any social competition because the human decisional factor favors them!
Well then, what is the future for us? Mr. Michel de Notredame told us. Our
Civilization is close to a great change, as never before in History. Even more, that "change" is going to mark our future
for about two thousand years from now on until . . .
