R48G: a challenge to decline with a democratic/communist revolution….: floating fourth turning points…

August 21st, 2017 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/?s=floating+fourth+turning+points

The idea is important even if we consider ourselves unable to perform such a complicated task in full. We could with this in mind attempt to create a new democratic communism in a social creation at a higher level…
But the more general issue is that we must try to understand our own ‘evolution’ and in the case of civilization asking if we could replicate the eonic effect, a massively complex and elusive task!
