Running Towards Equilibrium

It seems that most everything in the universe and we could say the universe itself is about achieving equilibrium or the lowest energy state possible. The universe may be a perturbation in what existed prior to its inflation. In other words, something stirred the ether and created an unsettled condition and it’s now running back towards its equilibrium state. This could be considered entropy or the dissipation of energy. What does a universe that reaches equilibrium look like? It probably doesn’t look like anything as it wouldn’t exist. The things you see in the cosmos, including space, are manifestations of a disruption in equilibrium. All structures and features extant in the universe would be resolved back into a most basic submicroscopic equilibrium or state of rest.

Even this quantum foam model shows features coming into existence and then disappearing seemingly into nothingness. Something probably upset the equilibrium apple cart and this is what happened.

On earth, all matter seems to be trying to achieve the lowest energy state in its local environment, although turbulence from solar insolation keeps things well stirred in the atmosphere and hydrosphere. Gravity and electromagnetic attraction seem to be pulling towards the lowest energy states.

Human dissipative trying to catch fish energy in a turbulent sea. Notice the tool in his hand, a sure sign of conversion to RNA and tool production/use.

Life is composed of dissipative structures and is powered by the overall entropic flow. Certain wavelengths (mostly around 450 and 650nm) of the sun’s rays interact with Chlorophyll A and Chlorophyll B and other pigments and through a chain of electrochemical reactions produce the sugar glucose. Glucose is taken in by mitochondria in both plants and animals to produce ATP. ATP is the equivalent of gasoline for cars and provides the energy for catalytic reactions and muscle fibers sliding past each other resulting in movement. The plants are eaten and those that eat the plants are eaten as each species becomes a source of energy for others. All throughout its movement in seeking energy and mates, the human will be dumping low energy infrared heat into the environment as electromagnetic waves mostly at around 12,000nm. The energy loss in the step down from 450nm to 12,000nm is enough to grow plant tissues, herbivore tissues and movement, and carnivore movements like hunting for more food to keep all of the molecular balls in the air. The human and other life must eat in order to counteract the constant tendency for the body to achieve its lowest energy state in which molecules become more stable but less able to maintain the structure of the dissipative. Damaged DNA, cross-linked proteins and other damages must be constantly repaired and waste must be removed to maintain the dissipative capacity of the organism.

Mr. T, human dissipative, compelled by his brain and the producers of his TV show to exude power, dominance and wealth.

Can anyone be surprised at the human preoccupation with accumulating wealth (energy) and mating behaviors? Maintaining existence requires a steady flow of energy. Even upon death, many people will attempt to prevent the remains from achieving their lowest energy state through various interventions like preservatives and metal burial boxes. Some will have their name inscribed on the more resilient granite slab so as to avoid disappearing completely. Even religions are an effort to avoid equilibrium. But rest assured, if the structure is not at its lowest energy level, it will be sent there over time by gravity and various chemical reactions. I am quite sure that the wood furniture I possess will eventually be degraded by fire or termites, which will convert energy trapped in atomic bonds into their own structures and waste heat, or I may have to throw the furniture on the fire to stay warm this winter. Whatever the case, it has a ways to go before reaching an equilibrium in the local environment.

After a life of struggling to find enough to eat. being socially superior and reproducing, it’s finally time for a rest and continued entropy of the hardened structures that supported the human cell colony.

Even the structures of the fossil fuel burning, technological civilization will eventually find their final resting places as gravity and the elements work against them.

Someone should save those slate shingles, they’re quite resilient. Without them, this structure would likely have already done a face plant in the yard.

Settled ether can be disturbed by things like generators with magnets creating a temporary disturbance that immediately runs towards equilibrium along the path of least resistance, usually a copper wire. Lightning too is a manifestation of the return to equilibrium when potential becomes to great.

Lightning bolt storm with thunderstorm clouds at night.

In the end, it’s quite a fight just to keep your atoms from achieving a relatively motionless, sedimentary rest. Humans always lose the fight, but their cells often live on and take new forms like children. Have you hugged your dissipative today?

  1. Good post. Sums stuff up pretty well.

    I might have related this story before, not sure. Anyhoo, some time ago I hung out, for short while, with this super egghead type guy. He was working on like his third PhD, maybe in math, something like that. It dosen’t really matter. At one point or another the question came up: “why is there something instead of nothing?” He said to me, something like: “oh, that’s easy.” He then started jabbering at me and drawing vectors and such on a napkin. I stopped him and said: “no, you don’t understand the question.” He said to me: “no, you don’t understand the answer.”

    1. I think that when “it” is finally understood in full, if it ever happens, it will be pretty simple and won’t need any mathematics at all. What the universe is will be relatable and understood in relation to everything that is and happens in everyday experience. But human dissipatives are mostly too busy counting the returns on their stocks and bonds while trying to generate maximal dopamine to pay much attention. You can get away with that when you’re totally organic. Nature will simply reward and punish based upon your evolved traits and recycle you. Technological civilization however is already coming to the end of its tether and it hasn’t addressed many of its key weaknesses. The cancerous growth reward part is about over and the punishment part is about to begin.

  2. Just some of my thoughts on this bit by Ugo Bardi.

    https://thesenecaeffect.blogspot.com/2022/06/the-collapse-of-trust-in-science.html

    My own thoughts are something like, the co2 we have pumped into the atmosphere does, I guess, affect the climate as a whole. Trap more heat, something changes, that kind of thing. But that dosen’t mean that we have any control over anything. Even we removed every trace of co2 that we ever pumped into the air, the earth could still warm or cool for all sorts of reasons, that have nothing to do with humans.

    Plus, I don’t think that most people, the vast majority, ever gave a single rat’s ass about “science”, or understanding anything at all for that matter. They only care about things that can and do affect them personally and immediately. Which is very understandable in my mind.

    Of course, if we destroy the “ecosystem” writ large, we all end up with nothing. But to think we can somehow “manage” the “ecosystem” is just silly, in my mind anyway.

    No, humans will just contine fucking up everything they touch, until they can’t anymore. That’s the way shit works. I’d say.

    1. The amount of energy obtained and consumed is the key metric for success with any biological dissipative. The elimination of the fossil fuel gradient and the wastes produced will result in a reorganization of the organic, sunlight using system. But in our role as fossil fuel (and everything else) consumers, a role to which we evolved, we have become a successful, short-term cancer. We have no intention of “fitting-in”. We built all this technological stuff so we wouldn’t have to fit-in but rather consume the ecosystem while more and more refining our role as dedicated tech RNA that fear and despise the ecosystem. The ecosystem is now portrayed as little more than a disease incubator. You can trust science, you just can’t trust people.

  3. Such loose discussions:
    Perhaps people can be viewed as one organism. Yesterday, the EU decided to allocate EUR 9 billion to help Ukraine. This country is bankrupt and there is no money to pay salaries to the budgetary sphere.

    In this example, I imagine that Ukraine is, for example, a little toe or even a dirty fingernail, and Russia is this big toe. The body, on the other hand, is not interested in the fact that the little finger has a conflict with the big toe, it just wants to live and be healthy in order to be able to convert the energy and state of solid carbon into volatile. Therefore, the vital function of the little finger should be maintained. The state of war is the body’s fever. But it also has positives – a lot of energy released in the form of megaton of fuel, removal of old redundant deposits (e.g. neo-Nazis – dirt from under the nail)

    It is similar, for example, in the case of the so-called fighting covid. The body wants to live and then you need to engage, for example, 1000 respirators to stop the death (90 years old) of diseased tissues that perform some insignificant function but are still part of the body. Here again we see a large energy expenditure of operational structures (governments) in defense of the entire organism.

    Depopulation, which is so popular in some circles, however, seems to prefer (as long as it has access to energy) a slow aging and dying process rather than a violent end (lethal vaccines didn’t do something the robots did). As is usual in any other living organism.

    2. People are rRNA equivalents. They may work in a single cell, equivalent to a protist, or work within a multicellular, international corporation. Generally they have their own patents or DNA and are in symbiotic or competitive relationships with distinct, growth-oriented entities. It’s more like an interconnected, supply-chain ecosystem. The national governments exist to look after and promote the interests of the business cells which pay a tax for services and the Federal Reserve exists to create more “blood” credit volume when needed to accommodate growth. The rRNA are managed to make sure they’re relatively happy and get enough energy to keep functioning. The most successful and voracious cell lines have metastasized and gone global. The hierarchical, politician chimps can be managed or bribed to make conditions conducive to business success in each country or John Perkins might show-up for a convenient coup.

      To me it seems Ukraine is a tool to be used by bankers against Russia. The power of producing credit is waning as growth ceases. A zero-sum situation puts everyone at each others throats for the remaining energy. The solution is to slowly eliminate unproductive drains on resources, institute a carbon budget, social credit score, central bank digital currency and universal basic income for individuals to prevent all hell from breaking loose. Dissolving national identities is also encouraged so as to eliminate that tribal basis of war. There should be considerable growth in surveillance, genocide (bio-remediation), WiFi control systems, encampments, propaganda, drugs and more.

Why do humans dismiss it as unimportant? Because humans have become RNA and no, aliens didn’t guide us in this direction. Just plain old organic, cellular evolution. We think we’re of a whole new system, and we are.

    yeah, very tricky question. IMO, it is oil that has allowed the money supply to grow, not vice versa. When the oil supply curve drops off on the right side of the curve, the money supply will follow suit, but more dramtically. Which will, of course, make the energy supply curve drop off even faster. Positive feedback loop, one of those things. I guess.

    If, somehow, someone found a bunch more oil and resources and such, the money supply could continue to grow, and debt could, theortically, depending on the increased resource base, get paid off. Something like that.

    Then there is demand destruction, which we see going on in ernest in places like Lebanon, Sri Lanka, Venezuela, Madagascar, etc…

    And then, there’s the MPP, which would force the curve into into the shape of a skewed maximum, which is exactly what it has done.

    All kind of depends on how you want to look at it. But in the end, physical constraints will rule. I’d say.

    1. They’re supposed to be able to raise interest rates and reduce monetary stimulus to control a wage/price spiral, but this won’t work with a resource scarcity inflation. Instead, prices spiral and wages don’t keep-up, consumers don’t consume and businesses die. Once it’s seen that the oil business is going to die, there won’t be any investment. Once it’s seen that the entire economy is essentially going to die (the RNA can’t afford health care, college education, houses, cars, energy, food) then people will grab what they can and the guns to protect it. Will anyone have a surplus to offer to those that have nothing? Maybe the zoo will have surplus meat. You can load the surface of a cell with receptors (money) to grab things out of the circulation, but if there isn’t anything in the circulation the receptors are worthless.

      Before the oil era, energy functions were usually performed by slaves, unfortunate soldiers caught in jasyr, landless peasants, farm workers … With the falling oil supply there is a chance that we will return to these proven solutions again. It is worth watching Sri Lanka

  9. The complexity inherent to dissipative structures is only allowed by the universe if it can cover its own construction, maintenance and operating costs through accelerating overall progress towards equilibrium. The structures that are built are themselves always pounded back towards equilibrium when their capture and conduiting of energy fails. Everything built by mankind will return to its lowest energy state, some fast and some slow. So why bother?

    Something akin to electromagnetic radiation (sunlight) creates a gradient of excited electrons which then must seek equilibrium within their local environment through bonds. In a cyclic fashion A (energized) to B to C to D to E (depleted) to A again with additional sunlight. Those bonds that make a structure like chlorophyll convert sunlight into electron excitation most effectively for conversion into bond energy. On the way from A to E much of the energy escapes as infrared radiation. Who can excite the most electrons and convert the return to equilibrium into the most useful, energy gathering structure wins. Wins what? Wins existence against the backdrop of equilibrium.

    Similarly, technology largely started with disturbing the equilibrium of gases by raising their temperatures and having them expand. They then cool and must be heated again to obtain mechanical work as with the steam engine or internal combustion engine. Why do it? The technological success protects and provides for the human RNA (and information) inside the technological cells which also protects the organic cell RNA (and DNA) which maintain the repeating metabolic cycles. The winner is rewarded with existence against a backdrop of equilibrium. A rifle produced in a technological cell can certainly contribute to elevating the energy level in a human by providing food and keep the metabolic cycles running. Eventually, to avoid losing the metabolic cycles, the human must procreate, which is in itself a cycle.

    So if you’re a nasty, selfish, greedy, murdering bastard, don’t fret. It’s not your fault. Neither will be the nuclear war that dashes all your cycles on the primordial rocks from which they came.

    insufficient testing to determine mRNA longevity and locations of activity in the body

    willingness to rapidly deploy a novel insufficiently tested vaccine technology to billions at low

    risk from the disease including pregnant women

    confident claims that vaccines are safe and effective despite being unwillingly to unconditionally approve the vaccines

    indemnification of vaccine manufacturers

    aggressive censorship of covid policy debate

    aggressive character assassination and career destruction of dissenting experts

    no updates to mRNA vaccines despite being ineffective against current variants

    boosters recommended despite risks of infection, hospitalization, and adverse reactions

    increasing with each subsequent shot

    elimination of non-mRNA vaccines from the market

    ignoring 50 years of knowledge and discounting the risk of promoting vaccine resistant and/or more virulent strains by vaccinating in the middle of a pandemic with a non-sterilizing vaccine

    zero public cost benefit analysis on any covid policy

    data manipulation that grossly overstated the effectiveness of vaccines

    zero promotion of effective disease prevention methods like vitamin D and weight loss

    aggressive promotion of ineffective disease prevention methods like mask policies that did not

    prevent and probably encouraged disease spread

    ignoring record numbers of adverse reactions confirmed by different systems in different countries

    avoiding autopsies to determine causes of suspicious deaths

    gaslighting and not supporting those suffering from adverse reactions”

    Rob is presenting the hypothesis that perhaps there isn’t so much evil in the world so as to enable things like injecting children with dangerous vaccines and that perhaps the Covid pandemic and seemingly nonsensical actions are all a merciful population reduction plan (mostly via sterilization) for the common good. But one must be aware that the Deep State that runs the United States and much of Europe are primarily comprised of a different tribe and we know that evil within a tribe is quite distinct from evil between tribes. Committing hurtful acts against your own gene pool can be considered evil, but committing acts of evil against a competing tribe is often seen as competition. We often hear of Americans being referred to as “useless eaters”. That’s very Hitleresque of them and opens the doors to things like very special pandemic and vaccine operations to be used against the potentially threatening other tribe.

    There seem to be a group of oligarchs and their minions that see the common citizen as outside their tribal boundaries. If the world must be saved from overpopulation and consumption, then specific groups will be targeted for preferential elimination. World leader’s from Klaus Schwab’s school of nefarious nabobs have been installed around the world to help implement “the plan”. It seems that technology will be kept alive as a companion to the “elite” even as fellow humans are slated for outright elimination or sterilization. Those humans that survive will also be transformed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, according to Schwab.

    The campaigns to emasculate white males, the George Floyd fiasco with Schumer and Pelosi donning their Kenta Koonberg sashes, the Jan. 6the insurrection etc. were all theater to pave the way for the corrupt puppet Biden to be installed. Even with the theater, the Deep State had to steal the election. They were frantic to get rid of Trump the populist by any means as the dollar was quickly sliding towards worthlessness with zero-percent interest rates, depleting oil and a Repo market that blew-up in 2019. Putin, like Trump, stands in the way of the plan and he will likely be eliminated by overwhelming force or perhaps he’s already been given a terminal disease. The reduction of population will take many years of pandemics, vaccines, famines, inflation, deflation and war. Survivors will be eased into a control grid. The stakeholders will consolidate their gains.

    In the last few days Ben Stiller and Sean Penn have visited the comedian turned President Zalensky. Can anyone imagine why? And it seems the U.S. military has taken an oath to “serve and protect” those that own Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumann, General Dynamics and Raytheon as soldiers are told to roll-up their sleeves and potentially make the ultimate sacrifice, or else. The patriotic arms makers, owned by the globalist tribe, should make-out like bandits as wars become de rigeuer. No, they’re not trying to do humanity a favor, their actions are for their own tribe. They may even experience a new golden age as they desperately pursue their life-extending technologies even as the riff-raff’s are prematurely cut short.

The Chinese also seem to be more willing to be controlled by authorities.

There’s not much time remaining for Adapt2030, the date at which growth will be finished. Most certainly the pursuit of happiness accomplished by taking out loans and growing businesses will be over.

    It seems the WEF are trying to implement the “technological” program which provides for a more controlled descent and perhaps sustainability for society. This requires application of new and emerging technologies, like vaccines.

    Gaya Herrington was impressed by the rapid vaccine roll-out. “She noted how the rapid development and deployment of vaccines at unprecedented rates in response to the COVID-19 pandemic demonstrates that we are capable of responding rapidly and constructively to global challenges if we choose to act. We need exactly such a determined approach to the environmental crisis.”

    Their capabilities are truly astounding and the first technological vaccine roll-out is a sure winner. After the Covid pandemic and war on Russia, I can’t wait to see what comes next in preparation for the normalization of zero growth by 2030.

  15. Professor Tim Garrett discusses Jevon’s paradox and efficiency in this short video clip:

    He mentions the role of efficiency in the use of energy and resources in building structures. As Jevon’s stated, increasing efficiency would not result in less use of resources and a good point made by Garrett is that increasing efficiency in the construction and operation of a structure, steam engine for example, will corelate with an increase in EROEI in mining a resource like coal. Because the steam engine is more efficient, the coal is now more profitable to extract. He also mentions the human invention of the alphabet as a great accelerator of efficiency. This is true because all of the specifications for construction of technological dissipative structures and improvements thereupon, can be transferred to succeeding generations and be improved even further along the way. Nucleic acids and DNA function similarly in that they record efficiencies which help the organism achieve a high EROEI or profit throughout the course of the organism’s evolution. The higher the achieved EROEI the better as the profit can be invested in new growth or offspring.

    I wonder if there is artificial intelligence behind events such as covid or going further big reset. Wouldn’t it be rational for the super elite to take advantage of the optimal scenario of creating the future and use technology (in order to protect itself) years ago? I suspect that they had access to it earlier than what is presented to us gray eaters -10 or maybe 20 years ago. Such a scenario would have no weaknesses, there is a known answer to any movements of rebellious primates. No revolutions, revolts, strikes, civil wars. There is an answer to everything, including the millions (also billions) of human losses – this is a calculated and calculated strategy.

    What from the perspective of an ordinary, average-minded person looks absurd, stupid, pure evil or Satanism, is only a small segment of the path to the goal. And as we know, the end justifies the means.
    We often focus on fragments, on small fragments, and this is perhaps covid, the war in Ukraine, and we will probably see some “unexpected” event again, which will absorb us again, but it will still be only a part of the expected and planned chaos from which will emerge new order – according to the famous maxim of the freemasons.

    Simply put, such a plan would have to cover all possible combinations and variables over a period of time (e.g., 10 or 20 years). In this situation, from the human point of view, apparently evil makes sense and apparently good – rational.

    By the way – I watched that Nato Summit in Madrid, small excerpts. The participants were satisfied, smiling and joking. It looked like a rush of clowns. Reinforcement again, great armies again. It has nothing to do with climate protection, with progress and an attempt to deal with the coming problems, the upcoming famine in Africa, but not only with inflation, an increase in CO2, etc. However, if they know that they are only part of the game, they have roles written in advance and they know more or less the result then it’s not so strange anymore.

        But they are trash, and their methods and objectives are base, cruel, inhumane: and we know they care nothing for the bio-sphere, it’s just their alibi.

        I always come back to the official Rothschild – prime movers in this –
        position, defining humans as ‘Inevitably obsolescent capital’. Up there on the net for all to see!

        No decent human could ever write those words, or even conceive of fellow beings in such a manner.

        They are not at all like the German veteran of WW 1 I recently watched describing the killing of a French soldier with the bayonet: ‘It went against all my inner feelings’.

Each is seen as a means to maximize the flow of energy and accumulation of wealth and happiness within a society. But what always seems to happen?

They don’t seem to be able to help themselves, always struggling to be No. 1 or the alpha-male in the hierarchy. Everyone else become a slave to develop wealth for the “owners”.

    1. Something reminds me, 1996, Negative Population Growth: Why We Must, and How We Could, Achieve It
      we read, among others:

      “None of these approaches would represent anything other than an addition to the existing armory of contraceptive systems, except for one thing: vaccinia virus is used as a vehicle for stimulating the immune system because it grows locally in the body, and produces an effective stimulus to the immune system, but very rarely spreads spontaneously to other people. However, there is no reason why the required antigens (the substances that stimulate the immune system) could not be introduced into any other virus, such as one of the more than 200 viruses responsible for the common cold, that would spread spontaneously through the population, and thus could serve as a form of infectious contraceptive. Depending on the nature of the antigen used, and their response to it, infected individuals would have more or less reduced fertility levels for longer or shorter periods of time. The effects would necessarily be uneven and it is unlikely that all individuals or populations would be equally affected. If a variety of antigens and viruses were used, however, these differences would average out and the average global fertility could be reduced to any desired level. The technology to carry out this global fertility regulation is not visionary. All of the knowledge and techniques that would be required are available today. Probably the creation and release of a number of different agents would be necessary to reach the desired level of negative population growth, as the effect of any one would be likely to be partial and geographically uneven due to the random accidents of distribution and infection.”

    The full “disintegration of Western society” is not “visible to the naked eye,” because it is too many orders of magnitude greater than can be seen with anything but a very hard-working imagination. What is “visible to the naked eye” are merely the superficial symptoms of the degree to which the foundation of “Western society” became a system of enforcing frauds which necessarily has a structure which requires about exponentially increasing fraudulence.

    “Western society” has become based on bookkeeping tricks, or magical mathematics, which can create “money” out of nothing as debts, which “money” can also disappear back to nothing. Of course, that does NOT mean that anything is actually being created out of nothing, or disappearing back to nothing. It only means that the entire public “money” supply is an enforced fraud which achieves symbolic robberies.

    “Democracy, especially representative democracy, has a serious flaw, precisely in terms of representation.”

    “Representative democracy” has a fatal flaw after control over the issuance of public money supplies has been effectively privatized. Everything cascades down from there, after private banks succeed in controlling public governments to enforce frauds. All the big corporations that grow up around those big banks being able to create “money” out of nothing are therefore similarly based on radiating branches of enforced frauds achieving symbolic robberies.

    SYMBOLIC ROBBERIES are different than actual physical robberies, precisely because of the degree to which those are achieved symbolically, rather than physically. Certainly, there originally had to be physical violence to make and maintain the original social robbery systems. Certainly, there had to be some continuous history, whereby there was enough enforcement of the frauds to keep those going. However, globalized electronic monkey money frauds, backed by threats of force from apes with atomic weapons, have become many orders of magnitude greater than is still encompassed and comprehended by anything still operating only on the basis of chemical energy.

    While the author of the article above is Brazilian, and therefore, mentioned Brazilian examples, I am Canadian and will mention my examples. Canada has degenerated from colonialism to neofeudalism. (We have a son of previous Prime Minister becoming Prime Minister, as the “visible to the naked eye” symbol of that.) Various mainstream morons regard Canada as somehow being not corrupt, despite the central social facts that its public money supplies are almost inconceivably corrupt and crazy. The funding of the political processes provided the feedback loops to drive crazy corruption ever onwards!

    From 1974, up until now, the Bank of Canada (still theoretically a public bank) has followed the “Washington Consensus” to obey the Bank of International Settlements, in order to allow the international bankers to continue to control the Canadian economy. Since then, the Canadian people have paid several trillion dollars of interest payments on “money” that was originally made out of nothing as debts. Thereby, about half the ownerships of everything that could be owned in Canada has by transferred by the operations of those SYMBOLIC ROBBERIES.

    There are no other issues whatsoever that are in the same order of magnitude. However, nobody publicly significant ever talks about that. After any groups in society starts to get away with frauds, then they automatically become even more wealthy and politically powerful, and so, ever more able to get away with frauds. Moreover, the scale of those frauds is so great as to beggar the imagination. What is still “visible to the naked eye” are a few tips of an immense iceberg. Indeed, most issues that are publicly significant are those which are pushing “divide and rule” towards oblivion.

    Human beings, still living on chemical energy, mostly do not understand what it means for there to have rapidly, and relatively recently, developed electronic frauds backed by atomic forces. The article above misses the mark by another enormous margin.

    “No wonder that what is now called lawfare has become a real weapon against legitimately elected governments.”

    “Lawfare” is due to the manifestation of the rise of symbolic information over physical power. (Of course, those are on a continuum.) That “lawfare” has primarily taken the form of automated, electronic frauds, as the “business as usual.” Everything controlled and dominated by “money” actually operates inside of its real history, that “money is measurement backed by murder.”

    Although that situation has not fundamentally changed throughout human history, it has been amplified by many orders of magnitude, because of how the money became electronic, while the ultimate threat of murder to back that money up became atomic. Ordinary flesh and blood human beings are no longer even remotely close to being in the same order of magnitude of the systems which they originally made and maintained, because the chemical energy systems that power human bodies have become trivial when compared to the electronic and atomic energies which now dominate the whole world, and particularly, “Western society.”

    “Western society” was the flowering of Globalized Neolithic Civilization. It is the whole of Globalized Neolithic Civilization which is “disintegrating,” and is doing so far WORSE than almost any publicly significant presentation of those facts that I am currently aware of. The first generation to grow up with the development of electronic and atomic energies is still alive today, and the vast majority of them exemplify Albert Einstein’s observations that “the splitting of the atom has changed everything, except the ways that we think, and therefore, we drift towards unparalleled catastrophe.”

    The vast majority of people are living inside systems that they not only do not understand, but, more importantly, have been successfully brainwashed to feel like they do not want to understand. Money can never stop being measurement backed by murder. However, the successfulness of that depends upon most people not understanding that, and not wanting to understand that.

    “Disintegration of Western society” is many orders of magnitude worse than most people can see with their “naked eyes” because the laws of nature have driven the laws of men to become as dishonest as humanly possible, which includes almost automatically becoming more dishonest, as systems based on enforcing frauds struggle to continue to double down, again and again…

    Theoretically speaking, the only things which might be able to save “Western society” is for that society to continue to go through series of political revolutions which are comparable to the development of electronic and atomic energies. While that seems theoretically possible, doing so appears to be politically impossible, because enough people would have to understand themselves enough as energy systems.

    The disintegration of the West is primarily driven the overwhelming successfulness of fraudulent money controlling everything that money can control. The currently existing monetary system depends upon the vast majority of people continuing to deliberately ignore the principle of the conservation of energy, and misunderstanding the concept of entropy in the most absurdly backwards ways possible.

    Globalized Neolithic Civilization was always built on the triumphs of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, or debt slavery backed by wars based on deceits. Up until recently, “Western society” was leading the way towards that overwhelming triumph of symbolic robberies achieved by enforced frauds. However, all of that social “success” necessarily resulted in “Western society” becoming more and more criminally insane. The ruling classes became increasing psychotic psychopaths, while those they ruled over became increasingly incompetent political idiots.

    Since there is nothing publicly significant other than layers of controlled opposition surrounding the central core of excessively triumphant organized crime, there are NO “solutions” possible WITHIN those systems. The only actually possible “solutions” first require series of psychotic breakdowns in “Western society.”

    It is a nice daydream that those psychotic breakdowns could be catalyzed. Ideally, there should be some “spiritual renewal,” however, that can not possibly become enough if that is merely a return to some old-fashioned religions. Rather, the “spiritual renewal” which “Western society” needs should come from the mathematical physics that made it possible for human beings to harness electronic and atomic energies.

    The special military operation in the Ukraine illustrates what I am talking about, because what is most “special” about that is there is nothing being used there now but chemical energy weapons. Sure, there are lots of electronics intelligently directing the applications of those chemical energy explosives, but, there is a general DELIBERATE refraining from changing gears to atomic energy, which is roughly ten billion times greater than chemical energies.

    While human beings and their civilizations are necessarily manifestations of general energy systems, the level of public understanding of that is abysmally low. Indeed, in “Western society” the education, big tech and mass media systems have done everything possible to prevent people from better understanding that, but rather, have succeeded in making most people feel like they do not want to understand that.

    The special military operation in the Ukraine is still nevertheless changing the real murder systems, and therefore, is changing the real money systems. However, that is mostly being blundered through, because “Western society” is indeed an “Empire of Lies.” However, those lies are so profound and so pervasive that most people who begin to recognize that only see so in the most silly and superficial ways, and so, tend to recommend similarly silly and superficial “solutions.”

    Political processes “should” go through profound paradigm shifts, in order to embrace a “spiritual renewal” such as comprehending how and why ENERGY IS SPIRIT. Of course, that can only happen in ways which are consistent with the laws of physics. Since those laws of physics have driven the laws of men to become as dishonest as humanly possible, amending those laws of men to become less dishonest appears to only be possible after “Western society” is going through series of psychotic breakdowns, because the deeply entrenched, established systems are only planning on increasing dishonesties.

    1. I’m afraid that the laws of physics have driven men to dishonesty through behavioral evolution and the competition of hierarchy. A “spiritual renewal” based upon a deep understanding of reality is likely too deep for the average human. A religious spiritual renewal based upon stories and myths and the final pay-off at death also leads to corruption. Even family members cheat and compete, especially when it’s time to divide a parents or grandparents belongings. It’s this knowledge that people are corruptible that facilitates the big scams. Dissipatives can’t help themselves, they’re programmed to go for the dopioids even if it means swindling the next guy out of his. Currently those that have taken greatest advantage of the debt slave system will try to kill, lock-down and materially change the physical nature of their future competition by using technologies from companies they own.

For them, the time to take action is after the ponzi can no longer run, but before a chaotic collapse occurs so they can retain power and privilege. Adapt2030. Part of the adaptation includes eliminating millions of tech business cells and their employee rRNA while incarcerating the remaining ones in a digital prison.

    As usual with complex, interdependent systems, it’s not an “either/or” – it’s a “both/neither”.

    To sustain the large human populations that already exist in every country on earth, you need both self-sustaining environments with sufficient ecological resilience & biodiversity and self-sustaining economies with sufficient energy infrastructures & distributable food/water.

    If the whole biosphere collapses first due to critical ecological damage and loss of biodiversity, supply chains break down, infrastructure fails and economies collapse in turn, so nearly everybody eventually dies to famine, exposure or the ensuing total war over whatever scraps remain. But if the entire global economy collapses first due to critical infrastructural failure and loss of distributable food and water, societies descend into chaos and people become desperate to survive famine and exposure, leading to civil, international and then total war that does so much ecological damage it destroys the biosphere anyway.

    So, like most dichotomies, economy vs environment is ultimately false. As is the people (the majority of whom work for and/or voluntarily support big businesses via rampant consumerism) vs big businesses (the majority of which are staffed by the people and perpetuate by servicing their endless desire to consume).

    As a rule of thumb, most either/or’s and all us vs them’s are either reductive to the point of being unhelpful, or just outright wrong. They usually wind up being neither, both, or an infuriatingly nuanced mix of neither and both, like the people/big business example above.

People are no longer about making and raising babies, but are rather occupied with their new industrial roles. The result is fewer children and the technology they spend their lives producing extends lifespan. If you look at the hockey stick growth of human population, you’ll see that the demographic transition, which is a technological transition, has actually increased population over what it would have been if humans had not been technological. Sabine leaves out the pushing aside and destruction of much of the world’s ecosystems as the increasing numbers of human RNA, responsible for eliminating the fossil fuel gradient, must also be fed from the organic world. There is significant starvation already created, just not for humans – yet. We may reach ten billion humans on the planet, but it won’t be a sustainable ten billion. I think we’ll crash, starting about now. The sustainable population with a Western lifestyle is probably closer to 40 million, except that 40 million humans won’t have a society that produces Teslas.

          Born in 1954, she was raised on a farm in Ipswich, Massachusetts with her three sisters, surrounded by the ocean. She would carry her love of nature, water, and animals throughout her life, caring for numerous pets along the way, and devoting her efforts and energy to myriad environmental and conservation causes.

          Gail had three daughters, Alice, Zosia (Sophie), and Maxine, whom she loved fiercely and in whom she instilled an appreciation of the natural world. Both resourceful and stubborn, Gail raised her daughters with unlimited devotion.

      Malformed spores suggest powerful storms drove ozone loss and led to sterilizing UV radiation

      “The end of the Devonian period, 359 million years ago, was an eventful time: Fish were inching out of the ocean, and fernlike forests were advancing on land. The world was recovering from a mass extinction 12 million years earlier, but the climate was still chaotic, swinging between hothouse conditions and freezes so deep that glaciers formed in the tropics. And then, just as the planet was warming from one of these ice ages, another extinction struck, seemingly without reason. Now, spores from fernlike plants, preserved in ancient lake sediments from eastern Greenland, suggest a culprit: The planet’s protective ozone layer was suddenly stripped away, exposing surface life to a blast of mutation-causing ultraviolet (UV) radiation.”

      It all starts with global warming triggered by increased atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gasses, mostly via volcanism. The humans are estimated to be matching or besting the level of greenhouse gas emissions that the Siberian traps released prior to and during the Permian mass extinction.

      Researchers find that a pulse of volcanic activity spanning several hundred years released as much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as anthropogenic emissions projections for the 21st century.

      “In a new study, an international team of researchers sought to quantify the amount of carbon dioxide released during the event. Their results, published today in Nature Communications, show that a single pulse of activity during the end-Triassic eruptions released as much carbon dioxide as humans are expected to emit over the course of the 21st century.

      Researchers have known for some time that the formation of large igneous provinces is often followed by dramatic shifts in climate or mass extinctions. The Deccan Traps in India likely contributed to the demise of the dinosaurs, for example, and the Siberian Traps are believed to have triggered the end-Permian extinction, in which more than 90% of life on Earth was wiped out.

      “The CAMP is one of the most impressive large igneous provinces on Earth,” said Richard Ernst, a professor at both Canada’s Carleton University and Russia’s Tomsk State University who was not involved in the study. The total volume of the eruptive event would bury all of the United States, including Alaska, beneath a kilometer of basaltic magma, according to Ernst.

      “These events are increasingly recognized to cause massive environmental change, and that’s being well documented by the precise dating that’s demonstrated that they’re associated in timing with the mass extinctions and other climatic change,” Ernst said. “The issue then turns more and more to what’s the mechanism?”

      As a potent greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide is understood to drive these climate changes, he said.”

      The humans like to think they are so special and unique, but this run away global warming they have caused will result in yet another hot house mass extinction.

      Rapacious apes vs volcanism – both were created by the earth. Other than the initial trigger, hot house mass extinctions and lesser hot house extinction periods are a regular feature of this planet.

      Worst mass extinction event in Earth’s history was caused by global warming analogous to current climate crisis

      The Permian period ended about 250 million years ago with the largest recorded mass extinction in Earth’s history, when a series of massive volcanic eruptions is believed to have triggered global climate change that ultimately wiped out 96 percent of marine species in an event known as the “Great Dying.”

      Penn led a team of researchers that combined models of ocean conditions and animal metabolism with paleoceanographic records to show that the Permian mass extinction was caused by rising ocean temperatures, which in turn forced the metabolism of marine animals to speed up. Increased metabolism meant increased need for oxygen, but the warmer waters could not hold enough oxygen to meet those needs, and ocean life was left gasping for breath.

    Humans are dissipative structures like hurricanes, circulating molecules that give rise to temporary structures that reduce an energy gradient, like the lions above feeding on the buffalo gradient. The job they have evolved to perform is the release of embedded energy of the buffalo. Human civilization is likewise a dissipative structure evolved to release the energy embedded in fossil fuels, wood, soil, etc. Civilization can be an all-purpose dissipative because it has evolved a new information or DNA system with new capable tools like enzymes. It’s why I often refer to it as a cancer, it has few limitations. Humans are the functional rRNA of the fossil fuel eating technological system but must be fed from the ecosystem to keep their molecules spinning or to keep all of the molecular balls in the air. Same for the lion above or the buffalo that feeds on the grass gradient and its embedded energy. We shouldn’t be surprised that humans are cell colonies overwhelmingly preoccupied with obtaining more investments, money and other dopioid (dopamine/opioids) releasing stimuli. They are controlled by structures of the nervous system with very little awareness of who or what is pulling the strings.

    https://peakoilbarrel.com/can-past-oil-production-predict-the-future/#comment-742521

    “Although the semantics of what it means to qualify as a giant field and the estimates of recoverable reserves in giant fields differ between experts, the nearly 3,000 giant fields discovered—a figure which also includes the supergiants—account for 80 percent of the world’s known recoverable oil. There are, in addition, approximately 1,000 known large oil fields that initially contained between 50 million and 500 million barrels. These fields account for some 14 to 16 percent of the world’s known oil. Less than 5 percent of the known fields originally contained roughly 95 percent of the world’s known oil.

    “80% of the world’s oil is produced by the world’s giant and supergiant fields. The overwhelming majority of these fields were discovered half a century ago or more. Most of these giant fields have, over the last 20 years or more, been creamed. That is there have been thousands of infill drilling in them with horizontal wells creaming the oil right off the top of the reservoir. Near 80% of the world’s oil is coming from these fields that are way past 50% depletion. Most are well past 75% depletion.

    “Also over half of the 20% of the oil that does not come from giant or supergiant fields still comes from large fields. Most of these large fields have been producing for decades. The idea that we are only at about 50% of ultimate oil production is absurd beyond belief.”

    There are a zillion small fields, but you need a zillion rigs to go after them all. Maybe if gas could be sold at $20 a gallon, it might be worth it. I think the future will be Private Gated Gasoline World – tanker trucks will come to your mansion and fill up your Mercedes and Maserati, you won’t have to go to gas stations – just like delivered home heating oil.

    What good are glucose receptors without any glucose? The organism can no longer eat enough to satisfy the appetite or movement and maintenance requirements. Greater efficiency? Get rid of the marginal cells and rRNA and feed the productive ones? According to Garrett via Jevons, the greater efficiency created by technological evolution will result in more, not less energy being used. It will become more economical to extract, but perhaps not this time. Perhaps complexity has finally reached the point of negative EROEI. Even fracking may have used higher EROEI fuels like big pool oil and natural gas to bring fracked oil out of the ground at an energetic loss, but as an essential feedstock for creating diesel fuel to keep the system alive. Now, what is the EROEI in stealing Russian resources? Doesn’t seem very good so far. Instead of investing in new oil technology, it might be time to invest in CRISPR pandemic technology for a little demand destruction. In the end we have almost achieved the ultimate success for a dissipative – nothing left to burn.

Some feel it’s completely natural to spend their lives functioning in a cell using a small subset of information to carry out operations. In a way it is natural, it’s just self-defeating because it’s not compatible with the ecosystem. They’re born into it and are prepped by the education system to read and write and they don’t notice anything askance. They look forward to their golden years which will just as likely be their cancer years where promising treatments fleece them of their gold.

I don’t regret the missed income, but I would hate to come to the end and realize I was just a busy molecule in a growth hungry tumor among many tumors devouring the ecosystem. Would it be better to realize I was just a hunter-gatherer living in an ecosystem? At least there would be the possibility of some continuity. And now the “system” is becoming more regimented, controlled and punishing. I’m sure the RNA in our own cells would make an escape if they could to be free-living and reproducing, but they’re trapped just like humans will soon be trapped. The only positive is that everyone will be “free” as soon as the technological system dies. They’ll probably end-up dead too.

    Old Way, New Way

    The hardest part of living through a time of wrenching change is that nobody particularly bothers to inform you that the times have changed and that nothing will be the same again. Certainly not the talking heads on TV, who are often the last to know. You have to figure it out for yourself, if you can. But I am here to help.
    It all has to do with energy. Not with technology—that’s incidental; not with military superiority—that’s fleeting and largely imaginary; certainly not with any sort of political or cultural self-righteousness—that’s delusional. There is no substitute for energy. If you run low, you can’t switch to running your industrial economy on fiddlesticks. It just shuts down. What’s worse, energy sources are not even particularly substitutable for each other. If you run low on gas, you can’t just switch to coal or to dried dung, even if you are up to your neck in it. Modern industry runs on oil, natural gas and coal, in that order, and they can be substituted for each other in very limited ways.
    Furthermore, energy has to be very cheap. Oil has to be about the cheapest liquid you can buy—cheaper than milk; cheaper even than bottled water. If energy isn’t cheap enough, then all the energy-hungry industry that runs on it becomes unprofitable and shuts down. That’s the stage at which we are now in much of the world. So, what happened?
    Once upon a time the US produced most of the oil in the world. But then the prolific wells in West Texas ran out and Saudi Arabia took over as the biggest oil producer. But the US wasn’t about to take that sitting down and hatched an ingenuous plan: Saudi Arabia will sell its oil for printed US dollars, then take most of those dollars and give them back to the US by “investing” it in US “debt”. Everybody else who needed oil had to figure out a way to earn US dollars to buy it, and any US dollars they had left over after buying oil also had to be used to buy up US debt just because: “Nice economy you have there! Now we wouldn’t want anything bad to happen to it, would we?”
    Indeed, a few people didn’t get the message (Saddam of Iraq, Qaddafi of Libya) and got their countries bombed. And a whole lot of other defenseless countries got bombed just to keep the others scared. But then Syria, which refused to get the message too, asked the Russians for help. The Russians helped Syria, and now nobody is afraid of the US any more. Meanwhile, the US became spoiled by all this free money, grew fat, lazy, degenerate and weak and amassed the hugest pile of “debt” (in quotes because there is no question of ever repaying it) in all of human history.
    In the meantime Russia, being the largest energy-producing country in the world, decided that it has had enough. Under the old scheme, Russia exported its resources cheaply, spend 1/3 of the revenue on imports and allowed 2/3 to leak out of the country, quite a lot of it also used to buy US “debt”. It couldn’t do anything about this right away, and so it spent the last decade developing its military to a point where now the US/NATO are afraid to go near it and its economy to a point where it doesn’t need much of the imports, at least not for a few years. And then a silly thing happened: the US confiscated Russia’s holdings of US “debt,” making everyone in the world take notice and start dumping it—even the Japanese!—sending the entire financial scheme into a tailspin.
    Meanwhile, Russia has started to switch from selling its energy exports for dollars and euros, which then leave they country, where they can be confiscated, to selling them for rubles, which stay inside the country. Do you want to buy some Russian energy? Well, figure out how to earn some rubles! And if your own anti-Russian sanctions prevent you for doing so—well, la-di-da, whose fault is that? Also, given that there is now a worldwide energy shortage, the Russians asked themselves: Why sell lots of oil and gas for a little money when you can sell less of them for more money?
    These are not projected developments; they are happening now and in real time. “Hostile nations” (which is all of the West) now need rubles to buy Russian natural gas and there is a plan to extend this scheme to oil exports. And just a couple of days ago Russia’s finance minister, Anton Siluanov, announced that there isn’t much point for Russia to export anything for dollars or euros since Russia doesn’t need them for anything and advised exporters to start using barter arrangements instead. Barter is rather inconvenient, but if offering dollars (or euros) just gets you punched in the teeth, then that’s all there is left.
    What sorts of barter arrangements? Well, for instance, there is a very nice gigantic chemical plant in Germany, the Ludwigshafen Chemical Complex in Germany, owned by BASF, that is about to shut down due to a shortage of its main feedstock, which is Russian natural gas. That equipment could be crated up and shipped off to Russia in exchange for some energy products, fertilizer and other key supplies that the Germans will need to keep body and soul together over this coming winter. Are anti-Russian sanctions in the way? Well, la-de-da again! They are not Russia’s problem; somebody else has to find a way around them.
    Meanwhile, lots of dead ideas, systems and institutions are piling up in the West. Dead is the Green New Deal (a scheme concocted by people who know neither physics nor even arithmetic) and the Great Reset, and Build Back Better (whatever that was), and the rules-based international order, and Mutual Assured Destruction (if you ask for it, Russia will destroy it, but how mutual is that?). And we are all standing by, waiting for a shout of “Timber!” when the dollar/euro/yen debt pyramid begins to topple.
    The world is also waiting with bated breath for a whole lot of pompous but useless busybodies to disappear from public view. Dumping that pompous blowhard Boris Johnson was a good start, but what about Scholz, Macron, Duda, von der Lyin’, Zelensky and a whole host others? Biden is in a category of his own, since it clearly doesn’t matter who is the US president or even if there is one.
    The world has changed, but social reality hasn’t yet caught up with political and physical reality. This is the summer of anticipation. The winter of discontent is next. Come next spring, we will all be living on a strange and different planet.

We now have Uranium, Plutonium, Cesium and Strontium. Strontium is shown below:

        1. Jay closed his list in 2013 I think if I remember correctly. So he had a few years to just relax and scuba dive. He found the interactions intellectually stimulating since he was able to retire early. He always said he didn’t want to be here when the whole thing went down so the scuba diving accident came at the right time.

          1. He was one of the only investigators that could do a deep dive on the subject. I think he kept ending-up at a dead-end for civilization. His foray into politics gave me the impression of the futility of trying to change things. I’ll have to get under a beach umbrella with a daquiri and await my turn. Maybe many daquiris with some pina coladas thrown in. I don’t drink, but at this point I would certainly like to.

      2. “We are going to crisp them and send in Boots and Coots to re-habilitate the oil fields”

        I think that maybe we “the west” missed our chance on that. From what I understand Russia has spent maybe the last 15 years preparing for this moment. The “west” on the other hand, has spent that time playing finance games, pandering to the politics of identity and globalism and squadering its resource base.

        I think that western finance and technology are no longer needed to burn the rest of the oil and such that may be available. So it will be cast aside. Not without a fight of some sort, I’d say. But the outcome is very uncertain.

        Anyhoo, Orlov, et al, may be right. The Eurotrash may just sit and starve and freeze while watching Netflix this winter. It’s not like they’re needed for anything anymore.

        1. Don’t worry about the Europeans, they’re holding currency and bonds, backed by the full faith and credit of a ponzi scheme, redeemable in the future at face value wherever energy is sold.

  45. Nate Hagens had Joseph Tainter as his guest today:

    I left the following comment, but don’t know if it shows up. In any case it was good as far as it goes. They skip over for the evolution of humans as rRNA. People won’t like to think of themselves as molecules performing functions in a metabolism. But what others are unaware of or afraid to speak of you can find right here at the Megaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa-Caaaaaaaaaancer.

    We’re “optimized for growth”, the Megacancer. Every human is pursuing the Maximum Power Principle or energy flow into their own domain as are the technological cells in which they work and the “nations” into which those cells are organized. Humans may superficially claim to want a steady state, but as a zero-sum environment develops they want a steady or declining state for their competition and may work towards that end.

    1. Human mating dances with rhythmic music. I love those things. I wonder how old Fred was there. No peripheral neuropathy in those feet. The somatic cell manifestation is supposed to get the job done and then get out of the way and the flesh melts right off the bone if allowed, ready for recycling into fresh bodies.

      1. They don’t want us to go out dancing, James, unless it’s some kind of neurological spasm……

        Dance a good fandango myself, although Latino is beyond me.

        1. It might be that a good dance could work some booster magic with a terminal face plant. I’ve noticed a lot of people dying while swimming too.

      Fred was great. Here is my favorite performance of Fred cutting loose at 71 years of age during the 1970’s Oscars.

    1. Thanks, I’ll looking for the next videos. Fraudulent collateral? How about a fraudulent capital – Washington, D.C. The Deep State tribe loads the deck to take control, taking advantage of the corrupt politicians which by their very nature are looking for the pay-off and/or are blackmailed via operations like Epstein. They also control the FDA, NIH, CDC and more. Expand the debt, expand the boosters. Use the slaves and then kill them when they’re no longer of any use.

    1. I find Nicole too ugly to bear: beauty and brains for me, on the whole.

      In fact, beauty creates a wonderful illusion of brains, I generally find, being a typical male ape.

      1. It is all in the hands of God or those algorithms created over millions of years that prefer one facial configuration over another. Perfect bi-lateral symmetry without any features that seem out of balance. Humans are such automatons and don’t even know it. The root of aesthetics. We owned this car back in the eighties. I think my dad sold it for $20,000, the same as he paid. It was a twelve cylinder but I never drove it because I couldn’t drive a stick shift. Too bad. Some cars are even sexier than others.
