Think of these items one by one in order Beyond Civilization humanity's Next Great Adventure. In a str iking similarity to the dual-use purposes of evolutionary innovations, many human traits are vestiges of our history but have yet to disappear, but various social managers have used them to exploit the masses.� For instance, the human taste for fatty and sweet foods has a very long pedigree and developed because those were the most energy-rich foods that existed.� But the incredibly high sugar and fat content of processed food vended by Western agribusiness companies plays to those biological proclivities in the name of profit.� Diets based on such foods are disastrous for human health, and industrialized peoples, led by the USA, are the fattest of the entire human journey .� Similarly, in-group "loyalty" (to fight the out-group) is a pre-sentient behavior that arose to ensure survival.� Ever since the first religions, a goal of social managers has been forming that in-group cohesion to battle the out-group.� There is not much sentient about it.� As the Stanford prison experiment and other events have made clear, people can be arbitrarily split along almost any lines and form an in-group and out-group, and the out-group will then be treated terribly. [849] � Dar win's "from the war of nature" comes "higher animals" conclusion in his Origin of Species is mirrored in the work of Marx and Hitler, in that they believed that human "progress" was produced by one social group violently prevailing over another.� Hitler avidly read Marx, and may be how he received his "revolutionary" ideas. [850] The militaries of W orld War II�s warring nations all committed heinous atrocities, but no domestic presses reported on their troops� atrocities .� Everybody was a cheerleader, but fabricating atrocity stories about the other side was typical.� One reason why few believed early stories about the Jewish Holocaust as it was happening was that the British media fabricated similar stories about Germans in World War I, so many thought that it was just more British propaganda .� Hitler realized that the British won the propaganda war in World War I and he was determined that Germany would win the next war of lies.� Goebbels studied the work of Bernays and other mind-control specialists to create the Third Reich�s message to its masses.� Nazi and communist propaganda was relatively clumsy, in ways far behind the English and American art forms.� Since the 1980s, I have seen Soviet and Chinese immigrants to the USA asked what the difference was between communist indoctrination systems and the Western media and educational institutions, and the answer was approximately: �In my homeland, everybody knew that they were being lied to, but Americans usually believe the lies that they are fed.� Above all else, the Industrial R evolution rode on the energy of hydrocarbon fuels.� A very strong American, hauling water, can perform about one kilowatt-hour of work in a 10-hour day, and a typical American about half that.� An electric pump could do the same work for less than 1/2000th of the worker�s wage cost. [851] � Not only could the Industrial Revolution�s energy technologies work far more cheaply than humans could, they could perform feats far beyond what muscle power could achieve.� A slave-borne palanquin never attained a speed of 100 KPH, nor could it fly or travel to the moon.� The energy of fossil fuels allowed for previously unimaginable feats of strength and speed, and materials and machines were created that would have seemed magical to preindustrial peoples such as plastics and electronic equipment. �T he relationship between energy use and economic output, measured in Gross Domestic Product (�GDP�), is nearly linear, and half of GDP changes are correlated with oil use .� The relationship between GDP and energy consumption in Japan is a typical example, as shown below.� The near-linear relationship is primarily due to energy-driven machines performing work; market prices reflect the work used in the production of goods and services.� (Source: Wikimedia Commons) In 20 13, average Americans used about 80 times the energy that was provided by their diets, which has been called having 80 energy slaves, but that understates the reality. [852] �A barrel of oil provides about one year of the calories needed to fuel a human body, but if that oil were used to power machines, it would perform more than ten man-years of work, often doing work that humans could not perform in any case, such as propelling an automobile.� Each American really has several hundred energy slaves working for him/her, which is why the average American lives a richer lifestyle than Earth�s richest human of two centuries ago.� In 2013, the energy in the oil wrested from Earth�s crust contained enough energy to power several hundred billion energy slaves.� Add in the other energy resources, and industrialized humanity rode on the backs of about one trillion energy slaves. [853] � In today's industrialized nations, humans perform a tiny fraction of one percent of the actual work done; energy-powered machines perform more than 99.9% of it.� In contrast, the reproduction of intelligence is in its infancy.� In 2012, hu manity's 500 most powerful supercomputers achieved the combined computing power of three human brains. [854] � The day that each human has even one "mind slave" is a distant future event The Origin of Civilisation and the Primitive Condition of Man. Mental and social condition of savages..

My interest turned into mere bitterness of contemptuous attention The World of Rome. Asceticism, as a rule, does not require detachment from the Cosmos. And the God-created beauty of nature is much more vividly apprehended in the desert than on the market-place of a busy city. Monasteries were in picturesque environments and the cosmic beauty can be strongly felt in hagiographical literature.
