The problem is that history requires free … Continue reading The eonic effect as a substitute for historical theories…free agency and computer mice…

R48G: toward a new socialism: the eonic effect/model as a substitute for historical ‘theories’

We have suggested a need for a broader view of history that can embrace history descriptively in its immense variety of categories. An additional strategy is open to anyone who can use the eonic effect/model as a substitute for ‘theories’ of history. But the eonic effect is likely too strange for most and/or strikes the … Continue reading R48G: toward a new socialism: the eonic effect/model as a substitute for historical ‘theories’

The sequence is a series of epochs 1. the neolithic??? not enough data, probably two such epochs, we suspect… 2. 3000 BCE to 600 BCE 3. 600 BCE … Continue reading The one page version of the eonic effect/model

 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. … Continue reading  From histomat to the eonic effect
