The invisibility of social obviousness I

latest update: February 2018

If you think of control, you always think of a clear mind and a clear goal. Control is not maybeness. Control is real, certain and for sure.

This is why we trust our male or female leaders, this is why we trust people who are in charge of something. This why we trust the people we are closely connected to and with.

But usually societies are not standing still, societies evolve: We live in one state and there is someone who is promising that he or she is able to transform this certain state into another – a more beautiful – state of existence.

The patterns that we can observe regarding a motion like this are the patterns that visualize themselves on the very surface of motion. They can be true and they cannot be true. Nobody knows. True evolutionary changes are following rules that we still don’t understand. They’re invisible. They’re following rules that no secret and no scientific community on the planet has ever gotten even close to.

The very structure of life remains to be unknown.

When we read, watch and follow the media or the press we can clearly see that any motion is creating a motional and emotional hub of meaning. In politics, in the media, in the economy or in social relationships.

In many cases the very true nature of things is a part of a debate or a discussion from time to time. But whenever things begin to transform in a rapid way people very often cannot follow intellectually or emotionally. This why people begin to be indifferent or – even worse – begin to love to hate because this is the best way to express their social unhappiness (as expressed by Emile Durkheim in his book “Le Suicide“).

If you begin to hate you can simply start to condemn anyone else, regardless of his or her inner existence because hate is an irrational category that can become a part of you instantly if you go for it. You can start to build your life on your very concept of your enemy in a very strong and “reliable” escapistic manner. It doesn’t matter if you’re left or right, or East or West. – It doesn’t matter if your hate is based on rational or logical evidence – you simply feel (unhealthy) satisfied after you began to follow one of the extremist directions anyway and when politics is not intelligent, coherent and/or inclusive enough to prevent societal situations like this, things can get out of control very fast.

Well, this is the invisibility of social obviousness. You do not recognize that you are already following an extremist expression of social behaviour that is used by evolution to form an opposite movement and to start a fight. – In this very fight people are burned and killed for the sake of a traditional kind of progress that belongs to the expression of evolution as we know it.

Now – in the face of new developements and in the time of the origin of an intelligence that is based on non-organic lifeforms – things should be delt with differently.

The new world is probably not anymore a world in which the number of dead (male) bodies automatically grants success. The new world goes further and it might even evolve and develop on the basis of no human beings at all but on the exclusive basis of a non-organic, electronical and algorithmic intelligence (publically known and imprecisely termed as “artificial intelligence”), a cyborg intelligence or a very advanced human intelligence.
