FAQ

What is Noēsis?

Noēsis is a 501(c)(3) non-profit humanitarian organization, based in King of Prussia, Pa., USA, dedicated to stopping and reversing the accelerating degradation of modern humanity, to then achieve a sustainable future, where none is theoretically possible without process-driven intervention, under modern conditions.  A comprehensive examination of the human evolutionary timeline is now possible, to identify and describe the ancient triggers for all  N modern human behavior. Noēsis is fact-based.  We hold our conclusions to be inarguable, and therefore able to be defended.  With the mortality of the human species now visible to all humans, humankind has no luxury of theory.

Is Noēsis affiliated with a religious group?

Noēsis welcomes all religious affiliations, but we are affiliated with none. The website video that anchors Noēsis refers to Quaker humanitarian ideology as an influence, but Noēsis is not a Quaker affiliate.

Is Noēsis affiliated with a political group?

Noēsis recognizes only the shared humanity of all human beings on Earth. Political affiliation and human sustainability are not related. Political leaders neither worsen nor improve human sustainability probability.

What is Noēsis raising money for?

Noēsis has a sweeping mission that requires global presence. We will seek a consensus among all humans on Earth, that humankind is a species in crisis. We will unite all humans under the banner of species’ self-preservation, by promoting the oneness of all humanity, and by creating educational initiatives that describe evolutionary triggers that lead to perpetual conflict.

Noēsis refers to a plan to "restore the magic". What does this mean?

“The Magic” refers to anything that has lost the ability to do what it was meant to do. As an example, a flat tire will cause an automobile to lose its magic, robbing it of its ability to provide transportation. Noesis claims that humanity in effect, “lost its magic”, when natural collaborative behavior yielded to acquisitive behavior, over 10,000 years ago. This crossover event was random in nature. Human beings settled into larger and larger populations, aided by an agricultural awakening. Extremely strong human longings for collaboration were slowly discouraged by the self-interested motivators of acquisitive behavior. Class-based models created “greater” and “lesser” beings. A ruinous socio-mathematical constant was created. See, “The Human Injury.” All stationary cultures to ever exist would succumb to these unnatural models.

The term, "Misaligned Force" is often referred to in Noēsis videos. What is its meaning?

Due to two million years of evolutionary influence upon modern human behavior, Noēsis contends that modern-day threats are misinterpreted by the human mind. These “evolutionary hallucinations” automatically default to heavily misaligned responses of brutality. A misinterpreted threat must necessarily summon a force greater than the misinterpretation. The churn of perpetual conflict is the only arrival point for this now-visible dynamic.

What is "The Galileo Effect", and how does it relate to the mission of Noēsis?

The Galileo Effect is a metaphor for the suppression and/or erasure of truth. Human history shows that “bold thinking is extinguished first, acknowledged slowly, fully established, and then finally congratulated”. Galileo was imprisoned and tortured for the crime of Truth. A human species that keeps secrets and erases truth is not sustainable.

What is "Normalization"?

Normalization in its healthy form is associated with the human ability to adapt to hardship. Modern humans have no choice but to normalize human degradation. We have jobs. We have children. The sum of what we normalize has an insidious effect, wherein humans are now mindful of our increasing helplessness, due to the totality of normalization. As a species, we feel a sense of “freefall”, a lack of control. What is not in control WILL crash. Existential fear is increasing. It manifests as the deepening political divisions we now see. Fearful humans seek safety in numbers. “Us v. Them” is more pronounced. This is the logical arrival point of existential fear.

What will logically follow unchecked normalization? The answer is beginning to take form. The pain of helplessness seeks increasingly “Escapist” behavior. Modern humans are fullydissociating from reality, choosing instead the safety of alternate realities. These include forms of entertainment that increasingly see no need to adhere to the laws of physics or motion. We’re enthralled with “superheroes”, even though these characters have no basis in reality.

What will follow Escapism? There is only one arrival point available to Escapism. Surrender.

What is, "The Fermi Paradox", and how does it pertains to Noēsis?

Italian Aatrophysicist, Enrico Fermi postulated that one billion years is required for any sentient intelligence to traverse and colonize the entire galaxy, at sub-light speed. This caused Dr. Fermi to wonder out loud, “Where is Everyone?” The Fermi Paradox was born. It seeks to explain what’s called, “The Great Silence.”

What is, "The Great Filter"?

The Human Injury describes the evolutionary crossover period, when collaborating human beings reached all points of the globe, and settled into increasingly larger populations, around 10-15000 years ago. This event was aided by the domestication of large animals, and an agricultural awakening. Stationary beings took up behaviors of Acquisition. This clinically unnatural behavior slowly discouraged, and then crowded out collaborative human longings. A class-based system of meritocracy created greater and lesser beings. The resulting biological insult to collaborative human DNA broke the collective human heart.

Would a sustainable human species retain a capitalist economy?

The answer is a resounding “YES”. Noēsis contends that “sentient creatures must be free”. Only Capitalism can render humans truly free. The decisions made within a sustainable capitalistic future would seek to eliminate what are now called “lesser” beings, and create only “necessary” beings. Any diminished human being is theoretically fatal to human interaction.

How does the concept of “Inertia” apply to the mission of Noēsis?

“Inertia” is the title of one of the featured videos on the Noēsis website. As our species desperately needs to find sustainability before it collapses into further chaos, we find a helpless humanity defaulting to behaviors of BLAME and JUDGMENT. These default behaviors have no utility for problem-solving. Noēsis contends that humankind has no FAULT for its current concerns. Rather, it is swept along by an INERTIA.

Two other examples of inertia are easily identified. 1. “Homo Erectus” (Upright Mankind) walked the Earth for 1.75mm years. 2. “Homo Sapien” altered that inertia. 3. A third inertia intruded upon the human experience when collaborative longings were crowded out by acquisitive behavior, around 10,000 years ago. The ensuing inertia has produced eighty failed human cultures. Noēsis was formed to trace, describe and alter this third inertia, by a process of slow-drip education, over decades of time.

“Negative Information” is a familiar phrase, woven throughout the fabric of Noēsis. What gives this term the level of importance assigned to it?

If Noēsis unites humankind under the now-forming banner of “species’ self-preservation”, humans will understand the evolutionary causes of everything they see in the modern day. The broad category of negative information is a deal-killer for human cultures. Its brilliant disguises in the modern day are all around us.
– Evolving humans navigated a much harsher landscape than modern humans.
– In order to survive, migrating humans relied mostly upon negative information to plot strategies of survival. The bearer of bad news had more value than the bearer of good news.

This deeply baked-in compulsion, to feverishly seek negative information, is not a thinking mechanism. It cannot recognize a kinder, gentler modern-day reality. It does not know that its ancient enemies are long-dead. The compulsion has reinvented in the modern day. They present as fully monetized social behaviors such as “Gossip” and “Nit-Picking”, among many others. In areas of the brain inaccessible to modern humans, an endless search for what no longer exists continues to rage. Human sustainability requires the abandonment of mindless conflict. These behaviors – gossip and nit-picking – are harbingers of endless conflict. The phenomenon is not survivable.

What is, “Commitment to Extinction”? How does it differ from the finality of extinction?

Modern humans feel that they can cheat evolutionary data. Knowledge that is now fully accessible says differently. Consider:
– 99.9% of all life forms that once existed on Earth are now extinct, about 5,000,000,000 species. During the time it takes to read this sentence, one species just went extinct. Earth loses about 150 species per day to extinction.

Despite these staggering numbers, there is one thing in common with all past extinctions. Namely, all expired species committed to their demise long before the last of their kind disappeared forever. Commitment denotes the point past which no efforts to reverse the reality will impact it. Should humanity commit itself to its demise, we will not KNOW it for decades. The period of commitment may last several hundred years. Commitment would mean that we’ve “clocked out”. Leaving the building is a formality.

Noēsis will ask Humanity to consider the uquantifiable hell that innocent, unborn and doomed humans will endure, when and if our species commits to a reality from which it cannot return.

Why are the concepts of “Blame” and Blame Rejection” so central to Noēsis?

Noēsis exists to redirect humanity away from commitment to extinction. In order to do so, we must identify and describe the main conduits that lead to perpetual conflict among humans. Noēsis has identified TWO BROAD CONDUITS to perpetual conflict. These are “blame/blame rejection”, and “non-concession”. The latter of these describes the maddening human inability to concede a material fact, in the face of an indefensible position. This social malady springs from the subconscious belief that we are under attack.

Moreover, human beings have unwittingly monetized their evolutionary defaults to conflict. Humankind is now faced with a decision to preserve itself – to evolve to sustainability – or to perish by its inaction. Global economic models nevertheless DEPEND on humans remaining locked into perpetual conflict. For a helpless humanity, there is no money in the “fix”, only in the “fissure”. The reality is not survivable.

Noēsis is mindful of the disturbing nature of the realities we describe, but no value exists in soft-pedaling these issues. Here it is again. Modern humanity has monetized the social and economic dynamics that provably destroyed all human cultures of the last 10,000 years.

Noēsis wishes to seek “consensus” as part of its mission. What would consensus look like? Why is it necessary?

In order to bring influence upon the current human trajectory, one that Noēsis believes is wholly unsurvivable, we would need to establish a global consensus; that is, an agreement between all countries on Earth, that human beings are in fact a species in existential crisis. No remedial process can begin, let alone persist, without an agreement that our species is failing.

As part of its mission, Noēsis will introduce itself to all countries on Earth, through their Department of Human Affairs. Immediate agreement – that humans are ONE – will occur immediately with all or most US-allied countries, but others will not respond, or will instead respond with skepticism. Noēsis understands that. Gaining consensus will therefore require several years. Indeed, the mission of Noēsis can only unfold over several decades of time.

The seeking of consensus – that humanity is in crisis – will be concurrent with several other activities, such as the dissemination of educational initiatives that describe evolutionary influence upon modern behavior.

Noēsis explains that all past human cultures have failed in precise fashion, and further, that these past human cultures were mathematically pre-ordained to fail. This is a bold assertion. What evidence exists to support it?

The assertion that human cultures are mathematically pre-ordained to fail is not bold. The assertion is easily demonstrated. Due to evolutionary crossover events described by Noēsis (see, “The Human Injury”), the resulting societal dynamics in fact went on destroy each, with no exceptions. The machine-like consistency of past human failures is therefore a constant. A social constant, by its nature, requires an outside force to alter it.

Every major human culture of the last 10,000 years is gone. These cultures averaged 250 years of existence, prior to collapse. Moreover, each was slowly disassembled and destroyed by “increasing complexity, exacerbated by inequality”. The new human cultures that arise from these described ashes then form the very same destructive dynamics, despite the most well-intentioned efforts of the founders.

“Precision”, by its nature, denotes a socio-mathematical constant. Situational phenomena (the descriptions we read in history books) are variables, wholly incidental to constant failure. “Same play, different actors.” The evolutionary crossover event that created the constant, (see, “The Human Injury”) is well-understood. Any hierarchy of human value that does not form naturally, assuming an unchecked meritocracy, is inarguably doomed.

Diminished human beings (i.e., those thought to be “lesser” beings), in any stationary culture, will collapse the system. There are no exceptions. NO. EXCEPTIONS. The constant unfolds as follows:

  1. Resentment forms within “lesser” beings.
  2. Resentful beings plots Vengeance.
  3. Vengeance manifests as Insurgency.
  4. Deployment of force by “greater” beings worsens what it intends to contain.
  5. Increasing complexity reaches critical mass; societal collapse is imminent.

Human cultures of the last 10,000 years have each averaged 250 years of existence. What rises from the ashes then repeats steps 1 through 5– the logical arrival point of a constant.

Noēsis has a video on its website entitled, “The Anatomy of a Lie”. In this video, Noēsis describes a link between lying and meritocracy. What is that link?

Around 10-15,000behaviors years ago, humans began to settle down into increasingly larger populations. Our natural longings for collaborative behavior were discouraged, and eventually replaced by the self-interest of acquisitive behavior. Systems of meritocracy replaced systems of collaboration. Meritocracy can be directly linked into the increasing human tendency to tell lies that never needed to be told. Here’s the link:

–Humans are judged every day by their fellow humans, against a standard of perfection.
–Imperfect beings cannot attain perfection. We come up short. When we do, we fear social scrutiny. FEAR ignites a survival issue in the subconscious human brain. We reflexively default to camouflauging our guaranteed shortcomings. The lie fills in the space between the standard of perfection, and what we’re capable of giving.

Lying is endemic to all human interaction. A sentient species that tells lies and keeps secrets is doomed to perpetual conflict, and is not sustainable in any way whatsoever.

Noēsis uses colloquial terms such as “freefall” and “gathering storm” to describe the current human trajectory. These two terms have no basis in science. What is their meaning, relative to the mission of Noesis?

The human race, all eight billion humans alive on Earth today, has terms that apply to all of us. The destiny of our rapidly degrading species is no longer within our control. That reality evokes a sense of “freefall” for an increasingly helpless humanity. Freefall has two possibilities available to it:

  1. It can be offset by deploying a parachute, allowing freefall to resolve seamlessly.
  2. Freefall without a parachute awaits a sudden stop at the bottom.

Human beings have no metaphorical parachute to break our fall. We have no understanding of the evolutionary mechanisms to which we remain fully captive. The unknown arrival point for freefall is a gathering storm for an emotionally exhausted humankind.

What species-saving knowledge does Noēsis bring to human beings that was never available before? What sets this knowledge apart? How will it induce sweeping change in the way the human species views itself?

In response, consider these bullet points:

  • Humanity has arrived at self-loathing. A sentient species locked into ceaseless battle, wrongly views itself as a scourge.  That arrival point is an inertia that must be arrested and reversed.  Inertia requires an outside force to alter it.  That outside force is called, “evolutionary data.”
  • A glaring crossover event in the human evolutionary timeline lit the fuse of constant human failure.  Understanding this event is not merely indicated.  It’s VITAL to achieveing human sustainability.   
  • Around 10-15,000 collaborative human beings settled into larger populations, Collaboration was discouraged and largely replaced by Acquisition.  The emerging dynamics of self-interest were foreign to collaborative human DNA.  This evolutionary insult to human DNA is a constant.  The situational analyis in human history books has no utility for problem-solving.  History books merely describe different actors, reading the same script.
  • That single event, when natural collaborative longings yielded to foreign longings of self-interest ignited unatural behavior.  Unnatural behavior cannot persist in nature.  
  • The above historical descriptions are inarguable.  Such is the relentless nature of a mathematical constant whose point of ignition can now be described in detail.
  • With the event isolated, a blameless humanity abandon self-loathing, and view itself with empathy.  Random evolutionary mechanisms that derailed the human species are now knowable.
  • Along the way, humans inconveniently  monetized self-interested models that guarantee perpetual conflict.  This phenomenon – conflict into perpetuity – is not  survivable.
  • Modern humans now look upon a sufficiently degrading landscape, one that will devolve into dystopia if unaltered.  This derailed train, like all others, cannot place itself back on the track. 

The concept labelled, "Evolutionary Baggage" is central to human sutainability. Please explain the considerable weight assigned to this term?

When problem-solving for human sustainability, there must be certain immovable assumptions.  These assumptions must be scalable to all humans on Earth.  Please consider our immovable assumptions.  Resistance to these central assumptions by any individual or group is accepted without reservation.  Nevertheless. we conclude: 

  1. Human beings in fact evolved on Planet Earth.  Further, human beings share a place of origin for our species, the African Congo Basin.
  2. Human evolution includes relatives that date back seven million years.  These details are a moving target, as new data become available.
  3. Items #1 and #2 allow us to responsibly calculate the number of prior generations of humans that existed before modern humans.
  4. The number of prior human generations is 150,000.  We arrive there as follows: 7,000,000 years human evolution (divided by) 40 years average lifespan for each generation = 175,000 generations.  We subtract 25,000 generations as a safety buffer.  
  5. with 150,000 prior human generations packed into each new human generation, it’s suddenly no stretch that modern humans are heavily outgunned by our own defensive biology.  These mechanisms activate immediately.  They do not recognize a kinder, gentler modern reality.  They do not think or bargain.  
  6. Saddled with this considerable weight, 150,000 generations of evolutionary baggage, modern humankind cannot find its future. The observation stands to reason.  Any sentient being chained to its evoluionary past must first understand the totality of the phenomenon, to then offset it through education, over decades.
  7.  Modern humanity is plagued with a bio-mathematical concern, not a situational one, in planning for human sustainability.  An increasingly helpless modern humanity wonders why it recedes.  Simply put, the weight of evolutionary baggage, in lieu of understanding it, is too much to bear for modern humans.
