NASA Funded Study Predicts Collapse of Human Civilization

Human evolution isn’t looking pretty.

After running the numbers on a set of four equations representing human society, a team of NASA-funded mathematicians has come to the grim conclusion that the utter collapse of human civilization will be “difficult to avoid.”

The exact scenario may vary, but in the coming decades humanity is essentially doomed to some variant of “Elites” consuming too much, “resulting in a famine among Commoners that eventually causes the collapse of society.”

That is, unless civilization is ready for one of two major policy changes:  inequality must be “greatly reduced” or population growth must be “strictly controlled.”

The apocalyptic pronouncements, set to be published in an upcoming edition of Ecological Economics, come courtesy of a U.S. team led by applied mathematician Safa Motesharrei and funded in part by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.

The otherwise obscure report was first made public in a recent column in Britain’s The Guardian newspaper in which environment writer Nafeez Ahmed warned that it constituted a “highly credible wake-up call” and declared that its menu of suggested policy changes were “required immediately.”

In the days since, environmentalists, socialists, hard-line U.S. Republicans and even survivalists have taken up the banner of the 32-page study.

Derrick O’Keefe, the Vancouver-based former editor of Rabble wrote “this NASA-funded study makes the case that the future is socialism or extinction.”  At about the same time, an anonymous commenter on M4Carbine.net declared “this is why I keep buying ammo…”

    In 1975 I formulated the way civilizations rise and fall in a new biological perspective, one that takes the climax succession pattern seen in all biological communities development, e.g. the stages of plant and animal life that happen after a fire has razed the forest and it reestablishes itself, going from sere stage to sere stage in the climax succession. I applied this biological pattern to human history of the rise and fall of civilizations, each one actually a step in the attempt to establish a permanent and self-sustaining community and failing because of being only one more step in that direction.

    We are biological creatures and are unconsciously seeking to establish a Climax Civilization, one that is self-sustaining, a permaculture in other words but like all living communities, not a blanket monoculture but a mosaic of diversity as each community “fits” in with its own local variations.

    With this new social change paradigm one can predict which social organizations and which technologies will become permanent features of Climax Civilization, e.g Climax Tools, as there will be a winnowing of technology so that much of what we see as tech gadgetry will fade away and only the solid new tech will keep with us and as we see, where is that solid new tech, it’s still bouncing all over the place as human species adjusts to the fact we are going to be changing our physical form of mentation, with computer advancement in brain power bringing a whole city in a box at your finger tips.

    As for the right socio-economic system, that too I’ve been dedicating my activist work towards to establish a working model for “communitarian capitalism” as the right “climax social system” one that holds all the advantages and necessity of socialized basic human community health and well-being support systems, while keeping the free market and novelty economy in place too but at the level of satisfying basic social needs. In short, a two-tiered economy, socializing the basic needs for individual and community health and well-being, food, housing, transportation, water, air quality, healthcare, basic lifelong education access, police, sanitation, fire, etc, etc, these must be satisfied first before a free market economy can work as a sustainable feature of human society. And the free market is not totally free as there has to be health and safety regs to protect the unwary bamboozled consumer and to protect the environment. Do these things, you will create a equality in nations and peace on earth, goodwill to all. And as a natural plus, when populations are materially satisfied, their populations drop, so much so, it becomes a problem, so let’s make everybody happy and comfortable. Biomystic Systems an employee owned and operated communitarian capitalist general climax technology R & D corporation, will be hiring some day soon in a sustainable jobless County near you.
