  1. 1. Argument, new data and questions arising <ul><li>unresolved trauma - individual and social - causes recapitulation? </li></ul><ul><li>new data around historic climate change </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>was this traumatic? </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>has it been resolved? </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>are we ‘causing’ climate change in order to recapitulate unresolved history? </li></ul>
  2. 2. Possible social effects of climate change, early holocene, and implications for now
  3. 3. For an individual ... <ul><li>unresolved emotional trauma seeks resolution (healing) </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>process is largely unconscious </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>reminiscent situations ‘restimulate’ old feelings and distressed thinking </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>leading to creation of experiences that resemble the original - ‘recapitulation’ </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 4. and at the level of a society ...? <ul><li>war as a commonly repeated pattern that benefits nobody... </li></ul><ul><li>a class system that damages all... </li></ul><ul><li>sexism that destroys the capacity for women and men to be authentic allies ... </li></ul><ul><li>are these all recapitulations? </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Matrix -fiction 1999
  6. 6. In this fiction Society is ... <ul><li>engineered by artificial intelligence to </li></ul><ul><li>provide essential nutrients </li></ul><ul><li>by farming humans and </li></ul><ul><li>the truth is hidden by super realistic projection of a virtual reality pretending human self-determination </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Patrix - real c. 100,000 BCE to Present repeat installations caused by misinformation/trauma during (primarily) infancy, adolescence and young adulthood Owning Classism Middle Classism Working Classism Sexism Racism Homo phobia and more.......... separation, conflict, war
  8. 8. <ul><li>engineered by the patrix </li></ul><ul><li>which is held in place by unresolved trauma </li></ul><ul><li>thus causing humans to enslave and abuse each other whilst we ‘recapitulate’ climate change (in attempts to heal) </li></ul><ul><li>and, meanwhile, we delude ourselves that we are rational and self-determining </li></ul>In this reality Society is ...
  9. 9. The matrix - the patrix what’s the difference? separation, conflict, war Exploitative AI Exploitative meme-sets in noosphere Classism Sexism Racism

  12. 12. My awakening to the patrix (within & without) including attempts to weaken its grip <ul><li>Harvey Jackins - Re-evaluation Counseling** . (87...) E </li></ul><ul><li>Conscious de-patrixing (a never ending quest...) </li></ul><ul><li>Riane Eisler - The Chalice and the Blade - (early 90’s)* (Maria Gimbutas & the Kurgan Hypothesis) . </li></ul><ul><li>Clare W. Graves - Spiral Dynamics (late 90’s)**. </li></ul><ul><li>James De Meo - Saharasia (early 00’s)*** </li></ul><ul><li>The Long Summer - Brian Fagan </li></ul><ul><li>Mary Daly - Gyn/Ecology ( early 80’s)* . A & S </li></ul><ul><li>Alexander Technique (mid 80’s...) </li></ul><ul><li>Permaculture Design (86 ... ) </li></ul><ul><li>Crisis & transition (4) </li></ul>
  13. 13. Sources of the trauma - origins of the patrix ways of thinking <ul><li>James de Meo - ‘Saharasia’ </li></ul><ul><li>Student of Wilhelm Reich </li></ul><ul><li>a general association between desert environments and emotional inhibition </li></ul><ul><li>a general association between rainforest regions and a more fluid, expressive emotional life </li></ul>
  14. 14. World behavior map Murdock’s ethnographic atlas (’67)
  15. 15. What behaviors? Some factors rPatrist rMatrist Premarital sex taboo extreme minor to absent Segregation of adolescents extreme minor to absent Genital mutilations extreme minor to absent Land inheritance patrilineal matrilineal Religion angry/vengeful God loving/Goddess Class stratification strongly present minor to absent Slavery strongly present minor to absent
  16. 16. Climate
  17. 17. Correlation
  18. 18. Suggested global diffusion
  19. 19. De Meo’s Conclusions <ul><li>Human violence appears to have a specific time and place of origins - antisocial violence was not world- wide at all times in the past! </li></ul><ul><li>The origins of violence are precisely timed to a major historical epoch of climate change from relatively wet towards dry/harsh conditions </li></ul><ul><li>Recent data - frequent climate change episodes </li></ul>
  20. 20. Holocene time line - 15,000 BCE to 1500 CE
  21. 44. <ul><li>Myth of Holocene as period of stable climate </li></ul><ul><ul><li>see latest data (ice cores, sediment cores, coral stratification, dating techniques) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Significance :- substantial trauma through forced migrations, famine, severe competition etc. Resolved? No!! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>pattern setting period of human settlement and cultural definition on top of chronic restimulation </li></ul></ul>
  22. 45. Consequences of chronic restimulation? Owning Class Middle Class Working Class Sexism Racism Homo phobia and more.......... The fog of occluded intelligence (90%)
  23. 46. Occluded intelligence means <ul><li>Unavailable capacity = denial </li></ul><ul><li>Irrational behavior (isms & regressions) </li></ul><ul><li>Chronic hurts = addictions </li></ul><ul><li>Closed thinking = beliefs v.thinking </li></ul><ul><li>Chronic conflict = separation/isolation </li></ul>
  24. 47. The Patrix on the run - Health of the spiral develops, transitions flow, 2nd tier emerges, small qualitative shifts give large quantitative gains ... Owning Class Middle Class Working Class Sexism Racism Homo phobia and more.......... The fog of occluded intelligence starts to lift (50%)
  25. 48. An invitation to all Say NO to the patrix! fess-up - get past denial a common language of liberation/re-emergence permaculture, re-evaluation counseling & others every-one an ally Owning Class Middle Class Working Class Sexism Racism Homo phobia and more..........
