The eonic effect, control systems, evolutionary directionality

This remarkable article, Evolutionary control systems, is an opportunity to consider, or reconsider the issues of evolution, or micro/macro evolution in the light of control theory. This time without genetic support.
As we examine the transitions of evolution in the large the suspicion arises that at certain critical points a ‘control system’ analog (that is, control theory might not be exactly it, but roughly on the right track) operates in relation to microevolution as macroevolution. Many of the confusions of evolutionary theory disappear at once with such an approach. Currently biologists are smearing together these two different levels, with disastrous results.

What is remarkable is that the eonic effect shows directly that precisely this is the case, and with respect to human history! This ‘evolution’ in a macro sense shows precisely the kind of ‘control theory’ process action indicated, but this time in the large, on the level of whole cultural systems. Impossible? check the evidence in the eonic model. It is a fairly simple demonstration.

In general, the factor of evolutionary directionality doesn’t make sense yet. The reason is the confusion of different levels, with the result that the evidence of evolutionary directionality seems refuted by the majority evidence seemingly against (micro). But major transitions would be brief, and in relation to the larger intervals taken up by the micro hard to observe.

In the eonic effect we can see the whole thing in specific terms, but applied to the time and motion study of the emergence of civilization from the Neolithic. We have to suspect that the current account of the descent of man is simply a Darwin myth, given this evidence.

World History And The Eonic Effect contains the full demonstration
