The general human stupidity

updated in december 2018 and january 2019

Intelligence will develop its future states widely independent from its contemporary expressions of itself. Contemporary expresssions are created by the subjects of intelligence to test-drive certain possibilities. These real-life simulations will not define a global state but only test some parameters under certain circumstances and in specific environments. That’s because we are a result of an intelligent development and intelligent development is only establishing certain results of the simulation model for a certain amount of time (Darwin).

Maybe we are intermediates of the evolutionary development and maybe some of our experiences are transferred to a next generation via our genome. Nevertheless, it seems to be a matter of fact, that all of our social expressions are based on the biological wiring of our brains and that all of the social input we receive is deriving from the content that has been created by people whose brains were mentally wired on a mostly biological basis as well.

There is not such a “cultural” thing of a choice to say “we develop capitalism” or “we develop communism”. We are thrown into certain developments at certain times and these situations have been created by the through-time-wirings of our brains and the interrelated mutual inspiration processes based on communicational exchanges mediated by the sensors of our brains (senses like eyes, ears etc.). At best we can call this process anthropological, but because the process depends on and derives from processes that started billions of years earlier – with organism such as the paramecium, plants etc. – we have to call it evolutionary.

There is – for example – no fundamental difference between so called “capitalism” and so called “communism”. It’s all the same human desire to materialize one’s mortal existence within a seemingly longer lasting form of matter (stones, buildings, societial human bodies etc.), which is – funnily – just a tiny and temporary extension of one’s existence – all within a just superirrelevantly different form of work organization and ownership concepts. (E.g.: In 2500 years archeologists will find almost no difference between the societies of todays USA or China, but quite the opposite – they will categorize these societies as extremely similar because the differences are only inside the minds but not within the material structure or infrastructure of these societies and all people who could express the differences will then be all dead and gone.)

The only difference is between real democracy and totalitarism. And today it seems that this decision is also not made by humans but hits certain societies almost accidentally as a part of evolutionary simulation concepts. Democracy can also get lost in time. At the same time history proves that totalitarism will also be taken out of the equation as soon as it begins to set the superlimited intelligence of human minds as the final frontier without allowing further usual evolutionary development. Simple.

Development expresses itself through us and we cannot develop ourselves independently from the wiring of our brains. Thus, all of our expressions are based on the certain infrastructure(s) of the brain. We cannot go beyond it. All of our thoughts are limited to the possibilities of expression of our mental cognitive infrastructure.

[So, if another mental/biological infrastructure is possible in the universe – which seems to be very likely – there is a huge space for completely different thoughts, products, societies and ideas.]

And although we have access to a huge amount of knowledge, we (unfortunately) don’t use it but very often only listen to the next aggressively shouting political campaign.

Especially in a human era in which the term “fake news” is trending – intelligent minds should think about the fact what “truth” can really and actually be. Maybe there is no truth at all when it comes to our very limited space of perception and cognition. And maybe all of us are subject to a permanent but unknown process of  development and reconfiguration. And maybe all of our hate and of our wars only illustrate our limited cognitive abilities. Limited cognitive abilities that exist for a reason: To configure us in a simple and easy way so that we are always busy fighting against each other and do not ask intelligent questions about the general principle of development. Let’s use the right terms here: We’re talking about a general human stupidity. Stupidity is a quality assurance mechanism of evolution to get rid of useless ideas and to make sure that only strong and reliable concepts can develop a layout that can be applied to the next stage.

And now let’s think about the things that are going on in the world in 2018, 2019 or 2020+: Cognitively – and except from technological developments, but definitely in politics – they are mostly on such a low level that an intelligent entity really needs to determine that it is in the wrong time, space, society, etc., etc. etc.. And it doesn’t know what it has done in the other interrelationship or space to deserve being thrown into such a cognitively limited and simple interrelational existence, here on planet earth.

This is because things are subject to heavy transformation right now. And the agora is filled with yelling people of all kind. And the administrative people do not have any ideas of how to create a working future. Let’s hope wars will not fill the empty cognitive spaces like they did over a zillion years. Let’s hope for at least a few intelligent people who are not interested in the usual power play but are aware and able to develop a possible future.
