From histomat to the eonic effect

I recommend this book to marxists as a substitute for historical materialism. The left won’t get another shot with histomat. Marxism has too many enemies to be tried again. We can easily revise that to a new and better form…A study of the eonic effect, simplified to a simple type of chronicle can serve instead. Don’t try to revolutionize capitalism with a bad theory like histomat. It will eviscerate values, freedom, and produce a mistake like bolshevism…
The eonic effect can be reduced to a simple outline of world history since the Neolithic (throw that in too, but the data is still thin): three eras or intervals,

1.from 3000 BCE to 600 BCE, 2. 600 BCE to 1800 BCE (the scale can slide backward a few centuries) and 3. 1800 to ?? Note the third interval is just starting, an interesting property…
that’s it. If we adopt this periodization everything falls into place, why, we don’t quite know: these three eras (with the Neolithic/Paleolithic up in the air) hide a mysterious set of effects which we can take empirically, e.g. the Axial Age ca. the second era shows planetary gaian parallel emergence, stunning…the three periods together show directionality. But our outline is almost enough: we can forget it and work with what we have, modernity in its majestic display of innovations, an eonic transition. We work with those, the theory of the eonic effect will not arrive soon. But we are at least warned that we have so far done little, and received a lot…

 

The eras start with transitions and then resolve back to free agency, according to bluepint. We suspect suddenly that human evolution is guided by some mysterious process and that most of civilization is a prepackaged set of gifts of greater nature. To see this compare the early part of the second era, and its outcome in the medieval period.
If this helper process is finished then we must be wary of our self-created future: we have no choice, but we can really fuck it all up. The End? If the eonic effect is incomplete it won’t return for another two millennia. You are on your own. Don’t think you can’t/won’t go into medieval decline? Look at Trump, it comes sooner than you think…

This model shows that values are intrinsic to dynamics. We can’t afford any more crude models of scientism. Kant had the right idea, but he threw a forward pass: more data needed. His intuition is confirmed…sort of: he predicted nothing but asked for an answer.
As we study the eonic effect we see that a theory is too complex but our (now empirical) idea of evolution works fine but is an almost a theory: civilization is evolving in mysterious intervals or epochs…Our position at the end is ambiguous. What about teleology? We are in principle free to act at will: the teleological factor is in the past, and might return in the far future: so the contradiction of free agency and teleology is reconciled, sort of….
Marxists could easily create a set of empirical histories of economic systems and reconstruct various issues from that. But there is no guarantee of a future communism. The scheme of economic epochs just doesn’t work, and there is the obvious chance capitalism will simply continue until planetary burnout: we must intervene as free agents. The ‘end of history’ or teleology is already complete, in the past: nature in modernity sets a course to a set of open possibilities in the early modern, revolution, democracy, socialism, communism. Capitalism is not included because it is an economic category and is not able to properly construct social systems, as we see now after two centuries it is destroying a planet. How do we deal with these? All the possibilities have been damaged: we must reconstruct economy, society with neo-democracy, neo-communism/socialism, and realize as free agents the synthesis of the directional starting points…Socialism/communiosm are just labels. We must be wary of using such terms undefined in detail.
Bolshevism is a good example of total screw up and we must obviously be wary of a new attempt save only that capitalism is proving fatal, so we must try…
There is ever chance this can all fail, as the system slides into barbarism, again…
As is plain model moves to the background, can be ultra simple and leaves free agency to its final exam, please don’t flunk…

We have constructed one model we call ‘democratic market neo-communism’: it is a way among an infinity of constructing as free agents a postcapitalist system and polity: the market is still present, but the conditions of the expropriation of private/capital…

The powers that be have lost (in the US) the power to detect climate change…we have every right to intervene but a good chance of fucking up again.

This system has a mysterious logic of its even if it has left us on our own. We could muddle through…

Finally, the eonic effect looks like ‘god’ in history, but it is not. We should be able to decipher its properties. Don’t bring ‘god’ into this discussion (a statement that is not atheist or theist). It is the wrong idea to fix the plumbing.
