The tide is turning against darwinism and it is only a matter of time before the ‘paradigm’ resets, but unfortunately it is likely the situation will stall once again around a set of limits. Here I have always insisted that World History and The Eonic Effect can help. Even though it is not about evolution in deep time, it can be useful as an exercise. And students of world history can benefit from the same exercise. Thus if we adopt the stance, ‘let’s try a specific type of model’, to see what happens, we can get the benefit of a new way of thinking without getting mired in speculation. We should note that ‘flat history’ is itself speculative.
This model in meta-genetic. It speaks about two levels. Its discrete-continuous distinction, related to those levels, shows how evolutionary directionality (thence probably teleology) can operate. And it shows us the way theories are still premature: we are stall at the stage of historical/evolutionary chronicles.
