We keep referencing the eonic effect, so-called, what do we mean by it? we had a huge literature on this in the old Darwiniana, but we will start over here, slowly. Here is a first take…
The question of the ‘eonic effect’ has perhaps been unnecessarily complicated by attempts to explain it. It should be seen as, on one level, a very simple structure in world history, one that should be common knowledge. In one way it already is common knowledge. For example if you reify ‘modernity’ you are aware without being aware of the tail end of this eonic effect, or eonic sequence. Why do you use that term? Again, we use the term ‘middle ages’. ?? Middle of what? In terms of the eonic effect it is the ‘middle’ of the ‘eon’ (a dangerous term) or epoch, or better yet, second interval in world history between classical antiquity and the modern period. We almost have it, all we have to do is add the phase of ulterior antiquity, i.e. the period of the dawn of higher civilization ca. 3000BCE (in sumer and egypt). But wait, wasn’t the ‘real’ beginning much earlier here, for Egypt and Sumer? A good point, but modernity wasn’t true beginning either. The period just before 3000 BCE was not the beginning but did show a tremendous relative set of changes. In fact, we guessed this answer, given a lot of evidence, because we are starting to see what is going on. Continue reading What is the eonic effect and how can we use the term ‘evolution’ for it…?

Marx’s classic analysis of capitalism is marred by its unnecessary theoretical framework of historical periodization, e.g. …feudalism, capitalism, communism…The result is a misperception of the complexity of world history which doesn’t follow the marxist analysis as historical materialism.

Nietzsche, despite being a student of the scientism of Oscar Lange, was strangely fluid in his thinking, and scored a direct hit at Darwinism with a criticism that to this day hasn’t sunk in and it also scores against the scientism of the rising scientific ideology of the nineteenth century on to our own times. It is a brilliant insight, utterly simple yet beyond the capacity
