PostSubject: Modernity Tue May 24, 2016 3:48 pm

Definition:

'Modernity' is a term to refer to the "Eternal Present" of life and existence, centered from the perspective of "All Humanity", any and all peoples of earth. Thus modernity refers to the average person, man, woman, or child, and from any historical period. A modern-thinker is the average person who "live in the moment" and neither considers the distant past or distant future. (S)he lives day-to-day, focused on the moment, living within the moment. A Modern (person) has average to low intelligence. (S)he reacts to thought and intellectual endeavors as stressful, hard, demeaning, and humbling. The Modern eventually concludes that 'thinking' is best left to others, to intellects, to recognized and accepted social authorities. State leaders, church leaders, officers of the law, scientists, politicians, etc.

The Modern is 'Hedonistic', chasing pleasures and fleeing from pain. Thus the Modern is easily predicted and understood by a higher intelligence. A "thinker", a person with above-average intelligence, can easily out-maneuver a Modern mentally, rhetorically, and by most life situations. The Modern doesn't care until his pleasures are blocked, or pain becomes inevitable. Thus Moderns act like rats within a maze, caged within "Civilization". Civilization is humanity, constantly updating, to stay in the eternal present. Thus Modernity coincides with civilization directly, resulting in 'Globalization'.

Jews, Christians, and Moslems represent the world's "Pop Religion". These are the most 'Modern' groups of all moderns. Just as civilization continually updates, adapts, and evolves, so too does the Abrahamic Pop Religion and its three main variants evolve. Other notable world, pop religions are Buddhism and "Eastern" forms of Nihilism. But all of these religions and ideologies are Nihilistic. They are severely socialistic and anti-individualistic. Thus Nihilism can be classified as a destruction or suppression of the 'Ego' (Self) while individualism (and thus intelligence) is much rarer. This is proved by simple numbers. If the Pop Religions encompass billions of people, the majority of humanity, then intelligence and individuality is (by definition) very rare. It is rare for any given human, any individual, to think "outside" the boundaries of the religions and ideologies, politics and indoctrination. It is also criminal and "against the rules". To think for yourself, to truly begin the process of Philosophy (Proper), is to literally walk outside or even 'above' the acceptable (moral) rules and laws of societies. Hence the Modern is very much opposed to "Anti-Human" and anti-social tendencies of intellectualism and philosophy.

The main premise of Modernity is Time, is the "Eternal Present". Nihilism, self-hatred, Resentiment is a secondary factor. Hedonism, pleasure-seeking and pain-fleeing is the third factor. And from these ingredients, the Modern, the average human, the Manimal, the "Democrats", the popularity, the majority are all known, easily seen, observed, recognized, and understood. They are simple because their lives, breeding, goals, and ideals are all simple as well. Their ultimate goal is to get High, on any drug, physically or mentally, usually using Religion. Of religion, obviously, the Christian dream for an afterlife, a "heaven", a second-chance on life, is most appealing. And from this motivation, the majority of humanity can be known, fully understood, and even manhandled. From these prepositions, great political leaders have risen, moved nations, and even started and stopped world wars.

From these premises have risen leaders, royalty, and even emperors, beginning with the ancient Græco-Romans.

The advent of Human Civilization "Progresses" side-by-side, left hand and right hand, with Modernity.

Opposition:

The opposite of a Modern, what ought to have been "normal", requires higher and higher intelligence as Moderns (Nihilists) do all in their power to drown normalcy (objectivity, reality) in a sea of hyperbole. Let's go ahead and call an individual who thinks outside the boundaries of Now (eternal present) as "Post-Modern". So consider the distant past and distant future. Where has a particular Human been? How was (s)he born and bred? What is the filtration method and mechanism of her matrilineal descent? What types of males have been included and 'reproduced' within her mother's line? Has she been bred well, or, ill-bred as is common with Modernity? If her breeding is good and superior then this is still no guarantee for the future. Although it increases the probability.

To know the future, know the past.

A high-quality female is defined by her sex and gender, as a filtration mechanism. Blocking the "bad" males (seeds) out of her womb, and inviting the "good" males in. By good and bad I mean, objectively, superior males. Females are drawn to a few distinct characteristics as a result: "Success", "Confidence", "Virility". Females desire a healthy male, just as males are drawn to healthy females (manifesting the phenomenon as Beauty). Even a "beautiful" environment is one that has been cultivated, tended to, and manipulated by mankind and processes of civilization (a Garden, Paradise, Heaven). Obviously superior breeding will not always, 100% result in success, but it has the highest probability. Just as lowly types are not bred with the "random chance" to produce something superior, instead normally, the best types are added together. Breeding animals (Manimal livestock included) is much the same as tending to a garden, and planting seeds with your own hands.

Building a civilization is synonymous with Farming and Gardening. A 'Superior' civilization is the same as a superior farm/garden. The Cultivator withholds a birdseye view of his environment, controlling and adjusting most aspects. Creating a roof to control rain flow, irrigation to control water flow, walls and fencing to control windflow, a greenhouse to control lighting. Thus human evolution is an intervention upon nature, a "Controlling" of nature, called "Nurture".

Male is the Nurturer of existence (Cultivation).
Female is the Nature of existence (Culture).

Moderns are slave-minded, commonly born and bred through their slavery, of slaves, amid slaves. Their eternally present mindset (Solipsistic) is a result of averaging, domestication, and evolution of civilization. Moderns are herd-like; humanity comprises a large element of the "R-type" (Quantity) breeding strategy and genetic composition. Thus a "Democratic" society is an R-type society. The mass is majority rule and driven by popularity. What is popular, is True (to the Modern). Thus if an opinion, value, person, ideology, religion, political platform falls out of popularity then it is no longer true but False. The Modern considers 'true' what is most flattering, most appealing, and most popular. Thus the Modern politicians appeal to such popularity, using lies, to keep the majority in their favor. The most common, popular lie, is of a "Better world to come", known by the ancients as a 'Utopia', "Plato's Republic", an "ideal society".

A "State".

These are some aspects of the organization of modern society.

Modernity transformed the understanding of wealth through a misinterpretation. The capitalist mind saw that wealth came from nature, and then came to the conclusion that, if they desired that wealth, they would need only to extract it and put it to its proper use. This was the impetus—already inherent and growing in pre-industrial Europe and whose early and not yet mature buddings can be seen in qualities which shaped the early exploration based on trade in the Renaissance and later the colonial enterprises in search of extractable goods—of the Industrial Revolution. The power of nature was harnessed and employed in the managements of all aspects of society, and this employment necessarily transformed the character and intent of rule.

The applications of the fruits extracted from nature causes all which absorbed that power, despite the ends for which that power may have been invested upon them, to grow and grow in the character of the new relation to natural wealth—government as administrators, citizens as producers and consumers, technology as the mediator of the new idea of wealth as what can be consumed (mediating either directly by 'feeding' the desires, or indirectly as part of a process of further extraction).

The growth upon that aspect of society, which has historically always been the largest, became exponential, leading to the rise of the mass society. Government as adminstrator was already in a position to deal with the masses by use of an intricate bureaucracy which had already been growing from the time of the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (a prime example being the measures set in place by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] under Henry VIII) and whose character was reflected in the contractual theories of early modern political theorists.

Bureaucracy gave the administrators the advantage of enforcing a continual levelling upon society by a procedure of standardized legislation, regulations, and codified duties, wherein all natural differences could be ironed out in favour of templates which favour the character of the mass man without qualities. Excellence could be reinterpreted as the excellence of the mass man who could be remoulded at will to step into the same duties and positions filled by other mass men. In hand with this reorganization was the regulation of qualifications which are exhibited by standardized testing. In this way all notions of excellence would be remoulded to accomodate the amorphousness of the mass men.  No longer were were men desired, or to desire, to distinguish themselves through personal deeds which would shape the world in such a way that could be judged by merits which would reflect back upon the doer, rather than a faceless and unaccountable institution.

Modern technology likewise supports the trend of the levelled and levelling mass society, wherein all natural differences of ability are made increasingly irrelevant by the mediation of technology been man and nature which offset the failings and limitations of the mass man.
