the eonic effect as the resolution of hegel’s query…//On Hegel and the Intelligibility of the Human World – Cold and dark stars

May 3rd, 2018 · No Comments

Hegel was attempting to answer kant’s challenge but perhaps he didn’t quite succeed: might one recommend fulfilling his brilliant intuition and guess with a look at the way an evolutionary macro sequence resolves the issue of ‘reason in history’ with its ambiguous design argument. I’ve been studying Hegel lately because I find a value in […]

Since darwin stole his ‘theory’ from alfred wallace, how about wallaceism…? human evolution and the eonic effect

April 21st, 2018 · No Comments

https://www.amazon.com/Human-Instinct-Evolved-Reason-Consciousness/dp/1476790264 history and evolution.com… We simply don’t know how man evolved reason, consciousness and free will. However it just might be the case that the eonic effect gives a few hints: take the data of the axial age, as revised in the eonic model, and we can see that a very high level ‘evolutionary process’ […]

What does the eonic effect suggest about theories of evolution…?

April 18th, 2018 · No Comments

another take on bennett… http://darwiniana.com/2018/03/18/archived-posts-on-bennett-and-the-origin-of-life/ What does the eonic effect suggest about theories of evolution…? 1. the eonic model is useful: it discusses ‘evolution’ without low level genetics confusing the issue 2. ‘evolution’ without genetics may have an invisible component rendering a full solution difficult or impossible 3. the above resembles the kantian distinction of […]

Old testament monotheism and the larger context of the eonic effect…the israelite cargo cult…

April 17th, 2018 · No Comments

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/jappersandjanglers/2018/04/christian-materialism/ If we have critiqued marxism, we must be careful to see that christian/jewish old testament historicism is worse, despite its interest as historical anthropology of the ‘eonic effect’. However, and this is a curious state of affairs, we can see how the ancient israelites in the period of the axial age began to detect […]

The eonic effect, maitreya idiocy, and the creation as free agents of a new social economy

3.1 Climbing Mt. Improbable: The Eonic Effect

April 5th, 2018 · No Comments

World History and the Eonic Effect tries to shows the real meaning behind the way ‘civilization’ climbs mt. improbable: a careful look of the data over many millennia shows many clusters of innovation that seem to defy the odds of purely random action: a good example is the axial age, and/or the period of archaic/classical […]

Religion, the axial age and the eonic effect

March 24th, 2018 · No Comments

Although it is not always easy to interpret the eonic effect it does provide a basis for seeing an epochal phasing of religion: we see the effect clearly in the axial interval in proximate antiquity and then again in the strong secular transition of modern times. The point remains obscure until it suddenly becomes obvious, […]

The eonic effect: debriefing flat history

March 13th, 2018 · No Comments

Debriefing historical delusion December 12th, 2017 · http://darwiniana.com/?s=eonic+effect We have often discussed the ‘eonic effect’ as an alternate historical framework. Actually it not a completed theory or even a definite framework: rather, it works as a ‘test of the data’. We make a series of assumptions about history but fail to see how beyond religious […]

Mr. Kaku: you have been brainwashed…(and wouldn’t dare discuss the eonic effect)….

March 12th, 2018 · No Comments

Kaku and futurism… Are scientists really confused about evolution or simply silenced by the darwin propaganda machine? It took Fred Hoyle less than five minutes to expose the darwinian core confusion. Beyond that the issue of the eonic effect shows that scientists are also confused about history. No wonder, but they might consider the enigma […]

The eonic effect; there is no going back to conventional history, but no clear way to an ‘eonic theory’

March 10th, 2018 · No Comments

We have been discussing ‘epochal modernity’ all day, but i would recommend the original version in whee and its model. The ‘epoch’ of modernity threatens to get a mysticism of age periods but we used it because ‘epochal historicism’ is what marxism is all about. And it is perfectly possible to define the so-called eonic […]

 the eonic effect resolves much of the confusion of world history…//Gordon Childe and Marxist archaeology – International Socialism

March 4th, 2018 · No Comments

Childe’s work seems to endure still, in rough strokes, subject to critical re-examination, etc…The Neolithic and Urban revolution correspond fairly well to our thesis of eonic directionality. But the larger picture eludes all parties. The simplest path to a solution is to posit a frequency hypothesis of 2400 years: 3000…600 BCE…1800, with a set of […]

Source: How to change the course of human history | Eurozine This is a fascinating article which I read this morning very rapidly: needs more study but overall it is grist for our mill here with our non-standard macro model of developmental civilization.

The eonic effect as a basis for action

http://darwiniana.com/2018/02/23/why-does-everyone-have-trouble-with-the-eonic-effect-from-the-preface-to-a-new-edition-of-whee/ I have often recommended a postmarxist platform based on the eonic effect (with or without the eonic model) because it doesn’t require a theory to use it, and can be made the empirical foundation for a set of studies, whether economic or not. Much of Marx is useful, of course, but often better as […]

Why does everyone have trouble with the ‘eonic effect’? from the preface to a new edition of WHEE

February 23rd, 2018 · No Comments

The question is not hard to answer: noone has enough historical information in the right form: beyond specialist study as a balanced study of all regions and eras of the last ten thousand years. But real effect is only visible since the invention of writing: The eonic effect then is a kind of epochal progression […]

A lot of good reasons to scrap historical materialism for a simplified historical model based on the ‘eonic effect’

February 18th, 2018 · No Comments

Despite the apparent opacity of the ‘eonic model’ the reality is that it points to a structure easy to verify empirically that confounds our standard approaches to historical study. The model demands that we acknowledge the place of values in the emergence of factual histories and resolves the misleading distinctions of religion, civilization, and culture […]

Debriefing xtianity: the eonic effect

February 12th, 2018 · No Comments

People are puzzled by the issue of religion. The context of the ‘eonic effect’, while controversial, gives one a sense of the transformation underway in the religions of the Axial Age. If a movement as superficial as the New Atheism can make headway against Xtianity it is a sign that that religion is in trouble, […]

The eonic effect versus the universal muddle of all historical theories…

February 10th, 2018 · No Comments

The influence of bad science, bad history, and bad education backing them up has made WHEE a book almost impossible to understand, but it is actually a very practical study of the way history follows a basic developmental logic. Why are scientists unable to deal with this? 1. they can’t handle anything that doesn’t follow […]

Eonic effects, revolutionary outcomes

February 1st, 2018 · No Comments

https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public?preview=Two+Manifestos+version+2.pdf It seems that a reluctance to promote the ‘eonic model of world history’ confronted with the marxist legacy is misguided and that a more forceful presentation of that is indicated.
