Many conclude, wrongly, that Noēsis exists to forestall human extinction. In fact, it’s a much more sinister concern that plagues Humanity. 99.9% of all species to have ever existed on Earth are now gone. In each case, COMMITMENT to extinction happened long before the FINALITY of extinction. COMMITMENT is the point past which RECOVERY is a mathematical impossibility. The avoidance of COMMITMENT, and not the finality of extinction, is the goal for a sustainable Humanity. It’s a tall order because Commitment can only be deduced in retrospect. (Example: The Wooly Mammoth COMMITTED to its demise 20,000 years before the last Mammoth fell. Nomadic humans crossed over the Bering Strait into North America, 30,000 years ago. The Mammoth committed by that random event).
This video explains the basics of the human evolutionary timeline. Viewers will be able to understand the random events that combined to derail migratory human beings, who began to act in a clinically unnatural fashion, around 10,000 years ago, when they first settled into larger and larger populations. “Elements of Societal Control” were introduced. Acquisitive behavior was slowly encouraged, while collaborative longings were slowly discouraged.
This video introduces viewers to the “The Human Injury”. The term is quite literal. An evolutionary crossover event – when Collaboration yielded to Acquisition – sewed the first seeds of resentment into the human experience. The human heart and mind were emotionally INJURED by the unnatural realities that formed under systems of meritocracy. For the first time, once-equal beings became either greater or lesser beings. The resulting dynamics were – and still are – fatal.
Italian Physicist Enrico Fermi determined that any intelligent species would require only a billion years to fully colonize the galaxy. “The Great Silence” is therefore a reality that cannot be ignored. Mr. Fermi famously asked, “Where is Everybody??”. When he did, “The Fermi Paradox” was born. In answer to the paradox, “The Great Filter” suggests that intelligent life tends to destroy itself, as it navigates the rigors of technological childhood. Noēsis gently warns that Humanity is now in contact with “The Great Filter”. Will we survive it, or will we be typical, and succumb to it? This video introduces “Cosmic Rarity”.
Noēsis has identified several main components of perpetual conflict among humans. One of them is “non-concession”, the human inability to concede a material fact. Non-concession springs from the primitive human belief that we are under attack. Primitive compulsions are at the heart of all human conflict. Understanding the machine-like action of these compulsions is vital to arresting human degradation.
The now-detailed, human evolutionary timeline allows Humanity for the first time to apply species-saving SCIENCE to defining itself. The human evolutionary journey on Earth was much more a matter of conjecture, even 100 years ago. Today, the data can be compared to a vast field of crops, awaiting harvest. The data can assist humans in not merely meeting themselves for the first time, but in KNOWING who we truly are. A process of discovery through education would allow human reintegration with baser compulsions that have reinvented. Humans would first need to forgive themselves, and only then to LIKE themselves as a species, to then CHERISH their rarity, and to finally PRESERVE themselves.
A highly-detailed human evolutionary timeline was not available, even 50 years ago. This timeline has since become rich in detail. Humanity can now apply SCIENCE to defining itself for the first time! In fact, the available data is no less than a vast field of crops. Let’s get busy harvesting it. This data can assist humans in not merely meeting ourselves for the first time, but in knowing who we truly are. A process of self-discovery, through education, will allow reintegration with our baser compulsions. We humans will first need to forgive ourselves. We will then grow to like ourselves, cherish our rarity, and to preserve ourselves as a species.
Noēsis describes 2 million years of evolutionary influence, pressing down upon our present moments at all times. It’s no less than a WEIGHT that, if fully understood, might also be shed. If we would not wish to carry a 20-lb. weight everywhere we go, why would we wish to carry the weight of evolutionary relics that place humans endlessly into conflict and keep us there? Let’s describe “The Weight”. Let’s deduce its uselessness. Let’s then throw it off the human shoulder – FOR GOOD.
Humanity senses a gathering storm, a maelstrom not of its choosing. A sense of “freefall” has set in. Human beings are understandably fearful, and acting every bit of it. Noēsis views “The Human Condition” through a lens of great Empathy. In this video, we position Humanity not as flawed, but as injured and frightened, running low on false bravado. Humans are not flawed or failed. We are frightened and injured. An admission of helplessness would not diminish us. We bond over common enemies. Is the specter of human mortality – by its own hand – not enough?
It’s a matter of time before Noēsis is viewed as a FRIEND to a frightened and confused Mankind. We’ll first ask viewers to feel uncomfortable, as the growing existential concerns of Humanity are described. Noēsis should never be seen as alarmists, but rather, as a process-driven force for human sustainability. As the saying goes, “we’ll need to break a few eggs first”. This video explains what our process of education might look like, and what it might accomplish. A highly stressed Humanity needs answers, not theories.
