QOTD Arthur Jensen

There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no third worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multi-variate, multi-national dominion of dollars. Petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars, reichmarks, rins, rubles, pounds, and shekels. It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today. That is the atomic and sub-atomic and galactic structure of things today! And you have meddled with the primal forces of nature, and You Will Atone! ~Arthur Jensen, in Paddy Chayefsky’s 1976 film, Network

  1. Systems within systems, what happens in one system impacts others, it is an aspect of reality the tribal thinking human fails to see. The destruction of rain forest in Brazil impacts the polar bear in Greenland. What happens to Greece ripples out to the USA.

    • Exactly. This is like talking about evolution, one thing leads to another; one thing has an affect and effect on another (without necessarily delving into the concept of cause and effect–which by the way do not have to follow the other in a linear manner), or like talking about quantum entanglement, if you will. Exactly, when acres are decimated to make way for more urbanization, the entire planet is effected no matter how small, but after many years that small effect can become quite large (i.e., chaos theory). This is an idea that current (yet, so ancient in mentality and popular will and consciousness) have discarded.
