Stages of production theory is confusing leftists: starting over with simple outlines…

The model of the eonic effect, taken simply as an empirical chronology of world history, provides a kind of doubloon effect: you can take it simply as a simple outline of world history, or you can take as hypothesis a series of interpretations of that set of patterns.

 The left has no historical framework, given the collapse of marxist historicism…

The model of the eonic effect seems perhaps a bit speculative, but its basic empirical content is well-established and at a time when the left is drifting in confusion over its historicist ideology a new and neutral view of history is needed: the eonic effect would make a good choice, reduced to basics, as an outline and taken as a field to reconstruct the issues of capitalism, socialism, and even religious histories still very strong, Continue reading ” The left has no historical framework, given the collapse of marxist historicism…”

Can man come to understand and overtake the eonic effect? will homo sapiens become extinct?

Man is overconfident of his ‘will to civilization’ given the evidence of the eonic effect with respect to a hidden driver behind its evolution (the ‘eonic evolution’ of civilization). We must suspect that the free gift of eonic macro effects has, or will soon, come to an end and the dangers for man are considerable indeed, given his insane politics, unjust societies, economic obsessions, failed religions, machiavellian political disease, and general lack of real ‘self-consciousness’ resulting in robotic behaviorism.
We should also be ‘optimistic’ that man can graduate to superadvanced ‘technologies’ that can replace the eonic effect: applied operations over scales of tens of millennia, the riddle of creativity, the hidden occult factors in religion, the real nature of human psychology (will, soul, consciousness)…and much else…best of luck…No spaceflights to the stars until the homework is done: quarantine against cosmic contamination…

 The eonic effect/model confirms but moves beyond Hegel…

In the final analysis Hegel offers a mystical view of history: we need to arrive at the category of (quite postdarwinian) evolution (the ‘eonic’ evolution of civilization) and there indeed we can posit a conceptual format of the ‘evolution of freedom’…

Hegel’s search for the universal patterns of history revealed a paradox: freedom is coming into being, but is never guaranteed
