An idea worth spreading

Socionomics is a new term that should gain momentum in the coming decades so groundbreaking and fresh and applies lots of the sciences to explain the fractal like nature of the way we operate as a human race. It holds the ability to predict where we are in social mood and explains the mistakes that we humans make at the highest level of government and banking. Most people fail to realize that we do actually operate as a collective in a herding manner and are not as individual as one would like to think.

I'm passionate about

What is coming next! I am in love with the absolute forefront of science and technology and wish to participate somehow in the near future.

Are you optimistic or pessimistic, and why?
Thanks for that info Simon. The buddhists of the world seem to be having the greatest understanding from ancient teachings as i am starting to believe. I must look int o Buddhism some more. I will try to look up some of Prof Brodbecks comments also, but my german is limited.

Where do you think consciousness comes from?
If the brain is indeed a quantum processor, then it is the environment that programs or shapes our brain. Our survival instinct picks up and then adapts the brain to the environment that is is subjected to. We are evolutionary survival beings after all and have adapted all the way through the ice ages to be here today. The little gift of consciousness that we have only allows us to change a small portion of mainly mammalian brain. It allows us to exercise but a small portion of our largely uncontrollable brain. The rest is unconscious on a level that we are only beginning to understand. Within the unconscious (or what i like to call our animal/reptilian brain) we get the different impulses from our environment. Being social animals we also herd at a very deep and unconscious level. I have been studying this pattern and it is global and fractal like in nature. Even when we manage to grasp and learn to understand this phenomenon, it is still out of our control. We somehow believe that we are logical beings yet emotion usually wins out over ration for the most of us so how much conscious control do we actually exert over ourselves? I have studied and understand a little bit about the mind yet i am nowhere near being able to figure out what consciousness actually is for? It takes a lot of conscious effort to try and reprogram the unconscious, especially as we get older. Sure enough we may figure it out, but it may be a long long way away.

Is "sustainability" even possible under our current monetary paradigm? I submit that it isn't. Our monetary system demands obsolescence!
You are bang on! Congrats to the guy that has found the root cause of many of the world issues including poverty and hunger. The good news is that current central banking is getting closer to collapse. We must just educate the world and get ready to replace it with a better system because greedy politician types will only true to recreate the status quo after the collapse. Monetary policy and Central banking is what causes hunger and poverty and crime and countless ugly parts to our human psyche which is not actually natural for us, think avatar or star trek, a world without money based on sharing resources. See my blog stavsworld.com to read more about my thoughts to what is coming next and also to lead you on to the fascinating subject of socionomics.

Technology can improve life - even dramatically - but to believe that it is the panacea of poverty or hunger is flawed.
The issue is an equilibrium one. For the western world to flourish, there has to be an equalising opposite effect somewhere else in the world. We are very imbalanced in that we are rich because others are poor. One of the comments below are quite right that it is a distribution or greed issue that we humans have culminated over the centuries. Now that we are more interconnected and educated, i am hopeful that we will brake down some barriers and aid the rest of the world by rethinking monetary policy. Current central banking and monetary policy is at the heart of the issue and this is a rather large issue to solve which is almost impossible to break without some sort of catastrophe. There was a paper i read once about humans naturally making society more and more complex until eventually the civilisation fails under its own weight. Once this happens again, i am hopeful that if education can be preserved. That new ideas can be born out of it and a newly formed evenly distributed world with lots of efficient localisation takes place. Idealism? Perhaps but i stay optimistic for the human race. We all know that goods are cheaper from China right? But come on! When you look at it from a scientific and efficiency perspective. Since when was it actually 'cheaper' on resources pr the planet to cart goods half way around the world when they can be manufactured locally perfectly well? Monetary policy distorts reality and masks what is truly important in this world. It actually detaches us from our natural human instinct and causes us to make decisions based on it. I look forward to the day that the central banking system collapses and doing the math it should be any time in the next decade. I just hope that we replace it with something better to help spread human equality around the globe once and for all. We have the technology, just the wrong policies which spawn the wrong attitude.

Ela re! The whole Western world is about to go bust so you can look at Greece as first to go in and first to come out. Then the Greeks can watch the rest of the world thinking that they are glad that they went first. You may think i am joking :) but actually i am not. Read my blog stavsworld.com and if you like more click the about button to take you to the socionomics institute. Being an optimist, i actually look forward to this great impending shake up. It will help society realise that we got very disconnected to what it means to be human. Money is just an idea that we thought up and one day I am hopeful that society will rid itself of it. (Think Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek : The next generation and how replicators replaced the need for money)

I couldn't agree with you more. Since watching TED i am a much more hopeful person. The standard stuff you see on TV and in society can be quite dragging. TED brings you back and invigorates you and teaches you what is important again in your life. Helps to put things in perspective of what really matters and what things really don't mater at all!

Where do you think consciousness comes from?
This question is a great one and still bothers me today. My latest take is that humans are one collective consciousness with the planet. Consciousness must be a new quantum state caused from the complexity of our evolved mind. Smaller insect like creates are so simple that they act much like robots. The environment triggers a response and they respond. Hence their intelligence can easily be fooled and manipulated by greatly evolved beings such as ourselves. If our mind can process 10,000 bits of information automatically at the same time. (Our programmed or unconscious mind) then our conscious mind, which can process about 40 bits (See The Social Animal TED Talk) must be a relatively newly evolved phenomenon in the history of our evolution.. Trying to then quantify what consciousnesses is, is like trying to uncover the mysteries of solar system's latest invention. There must be a reason why we spawn this feeling of self or conscious 'ego' which allows us to break off from the social herd and have our own limited thoughts. It must be an evolutionary requirement to our survival, however 99% of our brain is still functioning automatically and in the unconscious to the point that we are almost programmed robots that will respond in much the same way to the same stimuli and environment. (Have you ever found yourself making an automatic response to a question only to remember having a similar question then giving the same answer a year earlier, it is almost like you are acting like a preprogrammed robot) I take active interest in the way we herd like animals and also are able to feel the Earth and Suns current cycle but this happens on a very unconscious level. Ego or consciousness is something that i would like somebody to one day explain to me the answer to this question: Why am I me and you you and why am i not conscious of what you are doing in your life yet i perceive that am conscious of what i am doing in my life? A TED talk on this? I look forward to it!

Laurie Santos: A monkey economy as irrational as ours
Ok. I said rice as an example and do not profess to know about agriculture, but this principal can apply to all types of produce. It does not make sense to ship produce that is more than capable to be made locally. If you are so well versed in economics perhaps you can elevate my Neanderthal approach and tell me the overall flaw in current monetary policy perhaps you will also be well aware of the impending implosion of the credit market and the full force of a deflationary depression that is underway and will be recognized by the general public soon enough. Central banking and applied interest is not the way forward for humanity no matter how Neanderthal you may think this sounds. I am not a fortune teller but basic mathematics tells you that this system of credit based money with interest does not, will not and will never work for the benefit of humanity as a whole
