The eonic effect, its model and deductions… February 13th, 2017 The idea of an historical dynamic, what to say of a critique of darwinism, is very controversial with historians, but I think you should defy conventional thinking here and consider the macro model. And there are several forms of ‘deduction’ that can strongly suggest this […]

R48G: the problem of history and problems with the eonic model: a minimalist version of the eonic effect as a series of questions/hypotheses and warnings

April 12th, 2017 · No Comments

Is there a science of history? The question of a science of history has been indirectly critiqued by Kant and his analysis is one reason, next to the obvious evidence of the data, that we have introduced the unique innovation of post-theory: the distinction of system action and free action, or free agency. The result […]

R48G: the eonic effect and a perspective on the hypercomplexity of human evolution

March 28th, 2017 · No Comments

https://singularityhub.com/2017/03/26/the-rise-of-a-new-species-of-human-being/ There is no inherent objection to a new and future evolution of man, but its meaning in the context of darwinism, and reductionist scientism is likely to be abortive. It is for this reason we have discussed the ‘meme’ ‘last and first men’ (originally the title of a scifi classic) and rendered that into […]

R48G: irony of ironies: we are in luck: the eonic effect is so elusive we are protected from (mis)using it or of creating (bad) theories…

March 21st, 2017 · No Comments

The model of the eonic effect is a really stunning piece of evidence, but its overall structure is so elusive that we are pretty much prevented from producing a theory, one which will inevitably founder. Instead we can develop a chronological outline of a series of epochs with a set of observations about what history […]

Isn’t the eonic effect evidence of ‘god in history’?…nice try, but…

March 20th, 2017 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/?s=eonic+effect The question of the ‘eonic effect’ doesn’t quite register with most, at first. It can seem silly even as its elusive depth eludes initial understanding. In part that is because an ominous question lurks in the background: have you read a thousand books on world history, balanced across regions and sectors, time periods, on […]

A new foundation beyond marxism? //1.3 A Riddle Resolved: The Eonic Effect

March 20th, 2017 · No Comments

More and more it seems to me that the data of the eonic effect would make a good alternate foundation for revolutionary neo-communism in the wake of marxism whose fate is sealed even as it endures as a classic legacy, classic but only that. Well, not quite: there are innumerable useful aspects and illuminating insights, […]

The eonic effect: failed historical materialism and collapsing christianity…a refuge for both

March 17th, 2017 · No Comments

The eonic effect (http://history-and-evolution.com) is a very elaborate study of world history with a combined framework of empirical chronology and proto-theoretical modeling that is somewhat speculative but which can be streamlined to a broad spectrum of interpretations in a remarkable concert of opposites.

The axial age, eonic effects and the ‘gaia’ meme//It’s Time to Take the Gaia Hypothesis Seriously

March 13th, 2017 · No Comments

We linked to an essay on the gaian hypothesis and we can point to a cautious use of the ‘meme’ in the text subsequent to WHEE, Enigma of the Axial Age. The latter does something the former refuses to do which is to explore the gaian idea. There is every possibility of getting this wrong […]

A close look at the eonic effect?! //6.1.1 From Reformation to Revolution

March 13th, 2017 · No Comments

I recommend a long and thorough look at the eonic effect and then the eonic model’s take on the ‘modern transition’: this section of WHEE shows the complexity of modernism and is itself an oversimplification despite pointing to hundreds of aspects/books/ of the modern genesis… The question of eurocentrism threatens to confuse the issue: the […]

R48G:  philosophy, eonic effects //Terry Eagleton’s Materialism treats its arguments like carelessly piled bricks

March 8th, 2017 · No Comments

In proposing a new platform for neo-communism the R48G take might be an almost cliched ‘by the book’ ‘eonic’ version of the history of philosophy that leapfrogs between Plato and Kant, adopts a short version of Spinoza on the way via the ‘philosophes’ to Kant/Schopenhauer and Hegel. This grand triad of german classical philosophy creates […]

R48G: eonic effects, a new model of history and virtual revolution

March 6th, 2017 · 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. We can always up to a point have our cake and eat it too and place the components of the marxist legacy inside our […]

Eonic effects //In Defense of Multiculturalism

March 6th, 2017 · No Comments

Our historical framework can be helpful in getting past notions of the judeo-christian west in europe. The question of multiculturalism is slightly different. But our point is that in the progression of cultural constructs there is no ‘West’, no ‘European civilization’ and finally no christian implication one way or the other. Our framework thinks in […]

Dennett’s hopeless muddle, and the question of the eonic effect ///Is Consciousness an Illusion? | by Thomas Nagel 

February 23rd, 2017 · No Comments

This article is not online save for this tidbit, enough to caution dennett’s facile darwinism which can’t explain evolution, life, mind, or consciousness. And the evolution of culture via the evidence of the eonic effect is beyond the pale for such scientists, and one fears the same for nagel. The eonic effect, a larger version […]

Going through WHEE (tag) //3.1 Climbing Mt. Improbable: The Eonic Effect

November 1st, 2016 · No Comments

This is a second post on section 3.1: world history shows the highly unlikely and rapid emergence of civilization in a detectable tempo and a mysterious grid system of directionality and lateral integration. We suspect this directional system starts at the time of the onset of the Neolithic (it may well start much earlier) in […]

From the Prologue to The Crisis of Modernity, on the poetry of revolution to use Marx’s phrase. The Poetry of The Eonic Effect As we explore the eonic effect, a macro interpretation of the Axial Age, we make a prodigious discovery: the correlated emergence of an immense amount of creative action in the periods of […]

The eonic effect vs ‘historical materialism’ and ‘stages of production’ theory

October 23rd, 2016 · No Comments

Marxist theory is in a state of chronic inability to close its case, and the reason is not hard to find once we see the eonic effect: the economic factor is not the key to historical dynamics. The factor of economics can be overwhelming but that does not make it necessarily to key to its […]

You can follow the whole commentary with the tag/search: http://darwiniana.com/?s=going+through+WHEE+%28tag%29 We come to our first basic conclusion: world history shows a clear non-random pattern with a suspected cyclical driver with a wavelength of 2400 years. This is both outlandish and entirely apt. The system also shows parallel effects with the synchronies of the Axial Age […]
