Noēsis Video Series
Welcome to the Noēsis Video Series. Our growing series will familiarize viewers with the central themes here at Noēsis. Viewers can sample a logical, deductive and analytical approach to The Human Condition. A mathematics-based approach to the human evolutionary timeline allows our increasingly troubled species to view itself differently — a road to human recovery never before explored.
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 an increasingly 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 increasingly vicious nature of human interaction in the modern day is beyond troubling.
Would it help our pain to know that humans are in fact acting naturally. The accelerated brand of mindless conflict channels the ancient human search for negative information in plotting survival strategies.
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 and forever.
Are these the behaviors of a sustainable species? No. Let’s understand the influence of “negative information” upon modern conflict.
The Mathematics of Human Failure
Does Noēsis have your attention? Let’s find out:
Humanity enjoys very little chance to attain a sustainable future under modern-day realities. These are the conclusions of anthropological computer models
You needed to read that. And now, you’re uncomfortable. That makes you normal. If you let Noēsis in, it gets better from here. But first:
The collapse of all past human cultures was never situational. Rather, each displayed mathematical similarities. We now know why. The weight of millions of years of evolutionary influence on human behavior was never understood.
That was then–this is now. The human evolutionary journey on Earth is now well-understood. The goal of species’ self-discovery is attainable. Let’s get busy, or we will perish by our inaction.
Let’s “run the numbers“ of life on Earth. Start with this video.
Humanity has arrived to its present-day existential crisis by a well-understood INERTIA. Noēsis views modern Mankind through the lens of Empathy. This video describes three examples of inertia along the human evolutionary timeline. The precisely traceable events that altered these inertias are also described.
When humans began to settle into larger populations, 250,000 years of Collaboration yielded slowly to Acquisition. The constantly failed dynamics that formed are invariably deadly. They beg to be understood, not judged or blamed.
If the current human inertia is not altered by a process of species self-discovery, Humanity will tumble into Oblivion, by its own hand. Noēsis will not stand by and watch it. We’re here to understand it, to teach it, and to alter it.
THE GALILEO EFFECT
3 Part Series
“Bold thinking is extinguished first, and congratulated later.”
The human tendency to reject and destroy what it doesn’t understand is explored in this 3-part series.
Galileo was not congratulated for his Truth. Rather, he was erased by forces of control. Galileo has since taken his place as, “The Father of Modern Science”.
Human beings can now view themselves safely, if we have the courage to look. We cannot banish our ancient compulsions; we must reintegrate with them. Only then will we forgive ourselves for our weaknesses. We can learn about and cherish our cosmic rarity. And finally, we will actively preserve ourselves.
WHAT DOES NOĒSIS PLAN TO DO?
It’s a matter of time before Noēsis is viewed as a FRIEND to an emotionally exhausted Mankind. Before we achieve that, we’ll ask viewers to feel uncomfortable, as the existential concerns of Humanity are described.
Noēsis is a process-driven force for human sustainability. But, as the saying goes, “we’ll need to break a few eggs first”.
This video explains what our process of global education, occurring over decades, might look like, and what it might accomplish. A highly stressed Humanity needs answers, not theories.
THE ANATOMY OF A LIE
Let’s discuss the growing human propensity to lie. But let’s not judge it. Let’s look for traceable patterns.
Let’s agree on this first. All Lies Await Discovery.
When we lie, it goes south from there, and quickly. We need to manage our lies. It’s exhausting! Innocent third parties might then be sucked into these distortions we create, but we don’t intend that. This growing complexity must and will collapse.
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
When imperfect beings are judged by others against a standard of perfection, what could go wrong? We can’t ever win that race, so we create false merit. We lie.
We think we may be able to help here. Take a look.
THE SUM OF HUMAN FEAR
All of humanity now senses a gathering storm. A vague sense of “freefall” troubles the hearts and minds of all human beings. We’re collectively frightened by the degradation we see, and we are 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. An admission of helplessness would not diminish us.
But wait! Human beings bond over common enemies. Is the specter of human mortality, by our own hand, not enough? We’re about to find out.
Noēsis will seek and achieve a global consensus–that humans are a species in crisis.
In this video, we describe two million years of evolutionary influence, pressing down upon our present moments at all times. Evolutionary baggage is a WEIGHT that all humans on Earth equally bear.
If understood, this weight can be shed, for good. None of us would volunteer to carry a 20-lb. weight everywhere we go. Why do we carry the weight of 2 million years of evolutionary influence, when we can put it down?
Let’s understand this Weight. Let’s acknowledge its power over us. Let’s deduce its uselessness. Lets throw “The Weight” down FOR GOOD.
"THE HUMAN CONDITION" REDEFINED
At Noēsis, who are we to redefine “The Human Condition”? A failed culture must redefine itself in starkly realistic terms. We’re ready. Are you?
A highly-detailed evolutionary timeline was not available to mankind, even 50 years ago. This timeline has since become rich in detail. Humanity can now access it, and finally define itself for the first time.
The data now allows a process of species’ self-discovery, a chance for humans to finally reintegrate with our baser compulsions.
We will forgive ourselves for past failures. We’ll like ourselves as a species. We’ll cherish our cosmic rarity. We’ll preserve what we come to understand.
THE CASE FOR NOĒSIS
Climate Change, Pandemic, Nuclear Winter, and Disruptive Technologies occupy the forefront of human anxiety in the modern day. Humans are protecting a future that can’t arrive, due to a viewable phenomenon.
Not one of these above-listed modern concerns ever destroyed 80 major past human cultures. All past human cultures – no exceptions – have the same two words etched on their tombstomes: Perpetual Conflict.
Let’s say it together:
PERPETUAL. CONFLICT. DESTROYED. EVERY. PAST. HUMAN. CULTURE. ON. EARTH.
These very same models are again at the heart of all we do in the modern day. This THING we humans do, if it were a fuel tank, is on dead empty.
Noēsis has identified several main motivators of perpetual conflict among humans. One of them is “non-concession”, the human inability to concede a material fact.
Recall that Noēsis traces the evolutionary motivators of modern bahavior. Non-concession, the inability to concede an indefensible position, is the modern reenactment of an ancient battle–the belief that we are under attack.
The ancient enemies of modern humans are long dead. The human flight or flight system is unimpressed with these kinder, gentler realities.
Understanding the machine-like action of these primitive compulsions is vital to arresting human degradation.
"THE FERMI PARADOX" AND "THE GREAT FILTER"
Italian Physicist and Astrophysicist, Enrico Fermi, determined that any intelligent species in the Milky Way galaxy would require a mere one billion years to colonize the galaxy, at sub-light speed. The math explains that we should have met “ET” by now. This phenomenon is dubbed, “The Great Silence”, a reality that cannot be ignored.
Mr. Fermi famously asked colleagues, “Where is Everybody?”. When he did, “The Fermi Paradox” was born.
“The Great Filter” is the likely answer to the paradox. It suggests that sentient life forms tend to destroy themselves in technological childhood.
As our species accelerates into a curve, Noēsis warns that humankind is now in direct contact with “The Great Filter”.
Will we survive our encounter, or will we be typical, and succumb, like all others before us likely have? This video asks Humanity to cherish its “Cosmic Rarity”
THE HUMAN INJURY
This video introduces viewers to the “The Human Injury”.
An evolutionary crossover event – when Collaboration yielded to Acquisition – sowed 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 unchecked “meritocracy”.
Equal beings were suddenly viewed as lesser beings. The resulting dynamics have always been, and still are fatal to human cultures.
We monetized these components of conflict that we never understood. We’re hooked on the evolutionary heroin of ceaseless conflict.
Humans are not flawed in any way. We are more correctly injured, acting in a clinically unnatural fashion, the dynamics of which are eminently knowable.
There is no longer conjecture on this matter! Humans all come from the same place–the African Congo Basin.
This video explains the basics of the human evolutionary timeline. Viewers can then understand the random events that combined to derail migratory human beings, as they began to act in a clinically unnatural fashion.
Around 10,000 years ago, when humans settled into larger population, elements of Control were introduced. Acquisitive behavior was encouraged, while collaborative longings were slowly crowded out.
The first seeds of, “The Human Injury” were sown.
COMMITMENT TO EXTINCTION
Should humans beings unintentionally select themselves for extinction, a subsequent and unquantifiable period of commitment will follow. True commitment cannot be defeated.
Noēsis is not concerned with human extinction. Rather, the specter of commitment commands our full attention, until that concern is defeated.
Five billion species have already gone extinct. Earth loses 150 species a day to extinction. All of them committed to their demise long before the last of their kind fell.
