Stream and sequence….

November 1st, 2017 · No Comments

http://history-and-evolution.com/whee4th/chap3_5_2.htmStream and Sequence… The previous brought in the idea of ‘steam and sequence’ which is perhaps hard. But it resembles (without being the same as) the idea of feedback which requires two domains, like the ‘stream and sequence’ effect. With a feedback device, the ‘stream’ is like the ambient temperature (which tends to decline) and […]

Stream and sequence: dynamics, aesthetics, and the limited interpretations of modernity

October 31st, 2017 · No Comments

This analysis of the future of civilization using the ‘stream/sequence’ model is not entirely intuitive, but its basic insight is surprisingly robust, if only because it makes no predictions. Instead it exposes the way thinking about the past can confuse us, in the process of trying to learn from the past. The ‘decline’ scenario, based […]

what is evolution???!//3.5.2 Stream and Sequence: Transition and Oikoumene

February 27th, 2017 · No Comments

Scientific confusion over evolution shows no end. Jump into a different way of looking at the question: start with the most difficult aspect of the ‘eonic effect’, the stream and sequence effect and consider the way (after our link to the IE migration question) of the future history to come of the IE peoples migrating […]

5.2 Stream and Sequence: The Axial Transitions

September 28th, 2015 · No Comments

Our discussion of People of the Secret makes it important to refer to the analysis of the Axial Age given in WHEE (history-and-evolution.com). Our views of monotheistic religion are very confused. And we forget that the Axial Age produced Archaic Greece. We are beginning to sense that the Axial Age is something more than a […]

Magna Carta and ‘stream and sequence’ analysis

June 17th, 2015 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/2015/06/17/magna-carta-at…se-unfulfilled/ The issue of the Magna Carta makes for fascinating history, but its real historical significance is swamped by the generation of democracy in the early modern, and this is a perfect case of our distinction of ‘stream and sequence’ in WHEE. Over and over we see innovations stumble into history in the stream phase, […]

Stream and sequence

June 7th, 2015 · No Comments

Continuing our links to archived posts: http://darwiniana.com/?s=stream+and+sequence The strangest, at first, idea in the study of world history via the ‘macro’ effect is the pair, ‘stream and sequence’, but it is essential to see how continuous and discontinuous processes combine to create a form of ‘historical evolution’.

Stream and sequence: religions, axial ages, and reformations

March 30th, 2015 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/?s=stream+and+sequence Our analysis of world history in WHEE doesn’t honor ‘sacred’ and ‘secular’ distinctions. It has another more useful distinction of ‘stream’ and ‘sequence’: the Axial Age produces two monotheistic ‘sequence’ transitional areas, archaic Israel, and the hard to understand Zoroastrianism of Persia. We only see the Israelite succession in the West, but the Persian […]

Stream and sequence: capitalism

November 10th, 2014 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/2014/11/10/apostles-of-growth/ http://history-and-evolution.com/whee4th/chap6_3_2.htm Students of capitalism, including marxists, consistently misjudge the dynamic of capitalism in history. The marxist approach can’t resolve the determination of economic systems, especially capitalism, with the free agency of its participants. The macro model of WHEE suggests that capitalism is best explained with its stream and sequence analysis, many times explored here. […]

Stream and sequence: the meta-civilizational dynamic

March 28th, 2014 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/2014/03/27/the-failure-of-theistic-historicism-versus-the-x-ray-insights-of-the-stream-and-sequence-model/ As noted already today the key to seeing the ‘evolution’ of civilization is to look at the short segments or differential blocks that relate to a larger dynamic. The civilization is too large and amorphous. Once we adopt this new perspective most of the problems of theory fall away.

The failure of theistic historicism, versus the x-ray insights of the ‘stream and sequence’ model

March 27th, 2014 · 1 Comment

http://darwiniana.com/?s=stream+and+sequence We have produced a lot of posts on the ‘stream and sequence’ model and it is useful to pause so readers can absorb something of what has been said. This model is uniquely qualified to clarity the issues of religion and secularism in world history, in the process liberating thought from the double sets […]

Stream and sequence: the ambiguity of Protestantism: did ‘jesus’ have any connection to the Reformation???

Stream and Sequence models and neutral systems analysis.

March 23rd, 2014 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/?s=stream+and+sequence The Stream and Sequence posts have been read by a lot, and it seems that this is a useful approach to a new way of looking at history. But the method remains something of a puzzle. That’s for a simple reason: it uses a ‘systems analysis’ model, i.e. a model that can at the […]

Stream and sequence: last and first men

March 20th, 2014 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/?s=last+and+first+men The connection of the stream and sequence model to the issue of communism broached by Last and First Men (almost ready to ship) is clear: the phenomenon of revolution in the early modern shows a direct ambiguity as to democratic versus postcapitalist revolution, and the two processes come home to roost: The shift from […]

Stream and sequence model…what happened to the term ‘evolution’?

March 19th, 2014 · 1 Comment

http://darwiniana.com/?s=stream+and+sequence We have produced a lot of material on the ‘stream and sequence’ analog, and can pause for a while to absorb the idea and its implications. Although we have mostly refrained from using the term ‘evolution’ here (it can be a distraction) it is the case that our model is an evolutionary one. And […]
