In this video, we quantify the totality of evolutionary influence upon modern day behavior. We can easily understand the general idea that all modern day behaviors have evolutionary triggers. We now need to consider the IMMENSITY of that influence. We tell ourselves that we’re each born as a “blank slate”. An inconvenient fact must intrude on that interpretation. Humans are in fact saddled with 200,000 prior generations of ancient ancestors that came before us. It’s our ownership and not our denial that will allow sustainability. Only a being that understands itself in great detail can plot its next point of arrival, and then create a vehicle of education that would best ensure our arrival to sustainability.

The sum of what humans are forced to normalize in the modern day has taken on a cartoon-like quality. The mortality of a now-helpless humanity is clearly visible. We had no choice but to normalize human degradation.
Normalization is the arrival point of helplessness. The next stop is just up ahead. It’s called, “Surrender”.
At Noēsis, we’ve seen quite enough, and so have you. Let’s understand normalization. Better yet, let’s defeat it.
The particularly vicious nature of human interaction in the modern day is beyond troubling.
There’s good news. Humans are in fact acting naturally. The accelerated brand of mindless conflict is merely a reinvention of the ancient search for negative information.
Here’s how it works:
–Evolving humans lived in a harsher reality. Our ancestors searched for negative information to survive
— The bearer of bad news (i.e. negative information) had more value in plotting survival strategies.
How does it apply today? For the answer, simply look around.
–“Gossip” is negative information gone rogue. “Nit-picking” is negative information gone rogue. See it differently now.
Are these the behaviors of a sustainable species? No. Let’s understand “negative information”, and only then retire it.
Why do we lie? Let’s discuss the growing human propensity to lie. Let’s not judge it. Let’s look for traceable patterns.
“All Lies Await Discovery.” Once we lie, it goes south from there. We need to manage our lies. It’s exhausting. In no time, innocent parties are often sucked into these distortion we create. Many don’t intend that. This growing complexity guarantees the discovery of the lie. It’s like adding weight on top of a cheap card table, and being surprised when it collapses.
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS? I think I might be able to help here.
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.
