The idea that basic biological process may indicate some origination of later developments seen in human activity might appear to some as another flavor of the old Microcosm/Macrocosm idea which is defined in terms of a part reflecting the whole; specifically illustrated in terms of humanity and the larger Universe, or Cosmos.

This article relates the idea of basic biology to the Cosmos: Evolution and Relation of Microcosm and Macrocosm. However, both are representative of different concepts involving a dichotomy that we can describe as comparing the small with the large and vice versa. Indeed, despite my cataloguing of multiple "threes" in different subject matters, I find a highly visible rivalry with patterns-of-two. If we add the above two ideas together, we have the microcosm, middle-cosm and macrosm identified on the 1) atomic/genetic level, the 2) human or life-form level and the 3) larger Universe or Cosmos level. Hence, we have yet another pattern-of-three to which one might alternatively add the concepts of time and dimensions as different levels as well, or at least extensions of the three levels.

Similarly, we may describe the recurrence of patterns as a rhythm, whether or not this "rhythm" is further identified in terms of an association with music or even sound... though we might mix, match and delete any of our senses whether or not they are accentuated by some technology to increase our human-based perceptual ranges. And though we may well include the attribution of some measured transitional point of reference... even if no actual representation is as yet available as a representation... (in other words it remains as a supposition and not a fact), at the very least three points of reference can be related to time (past- present- future), of which we see existing in different degrees in all beliefs with different labels. If we view the socio-politico-economic ideas of Communism, Democracy and Socialism as a gradation of time since Communists have stated that Communism will come sometime in the future and must pass through first a Democracy then a Socialism, let us take a stab at making some correlations, yet not forgetting we are talking about a rhythm, or if you will... a stride or gait of human mentality.

  1. PAST: A beginning seen from different perspectives such as Physics with its Big Bang Theory, Eden of Christianity, Primordial soup of Biology, Golden age, Ancient Knowledge (such as forgotten mysteries sought after by different methods exemplified by spiritualism, theosophy, psycho-analysis, etc,).
  2. PRESENT: A relative orientation depending on one's time period that may use various labels to be described in association with either/and/or a notion concerning some concept of the past and future.
  3. FUTURE: Variously described with ideas such as Doomsday, Utopia, Bliss, Heaven, absence of further existence, etc...

If the ideas of Communism, Democracy and Socialism are just other terms being used to convey some semblance of a notion involving the past, present and future, then the concepts are misleading and point to an underlying mental activity that is following the same path of multiple other ideas in different subject areas which, in their own ways, are also directed towards providing an orientation about the past, present and future. They are thus part of a herd mentality brought on by the biomechanical system of the human body is reacting to environmental cues, whether or not humans are conscious of why they have "chosen" to follow a certain path. The notion of "choice" may come afterwards and a person's experiences and knowledge used to rationalize why the supposed choice was made.

If the socio-politico-economic ideas are predominantly based on environmental pressures, we need to identify the environmental event(s) for a better advantage... though this may be as difficult as trying to convince a herd of horses that they are running due to lightning strikes and thunder claps. If we claim such ideas are merely different expressions of other past, more rudimentary ideas that have come and gone but that the same pattern(s) is/are occurring, let us strive to understand why humanity continues to react in the same way, though the reactions are defined in accordance with whatever language, vernacular, idioms, slang, etc., a person is most familiar with and customarily uses as a means of developing a linguistic appraisal of their world view. In an effort to acquire some grasp of what may influence thinking, let us look at the rhythmic pulses of the mammalian gait, which is predominantly bipedal for humans and quadrupedal for other animals which play an active role in directing human behaviour, particularly in our domestications of many different varieties thereof.

And though we may not necessarily at first want to include six-legged insects with a tripod gait, and eight-legged arachnids (spiders), these small creatures, (along with the rhythms of viruses and bacteria) have played an extensive part in directing human behavior. One might even say that the common fear of snakes and spiders is an imprinted pattern defined as an instinct, just as is the common usage of the left hand to wipe one's butt with.

In as much as some readers may want to argue for being able to list more than three types of view in a given subject area, underneath we find smaller and smaller patterns being differentiated as references. For example, the many three patterns one might come to name can be reduced to patterns-of-two, and the two-patterns reduced to a singularity, depending on the scheme one wants to apply to a given interpretation. It doesn't really matter except to recognize we don't typically go in the other direction. It is most common to seek the lowest common denominator and not the greatest common denominator, thus providing evidence that there is no common impulse to provide equality for everyone. Trying to provide the greatest amount of equality for everyone to share requires an ongoing interest and reflexive orientation for acquiring the greater common denominator and not the lowest one. (Yes, I know I am repeating myself.)

If there is not a widespread inclination for everyone to seek out the largest common denominator possible in all transactions, there is no impulse to do so. In other words it is not part of the herd mentality. They run in a single direction and not all directions, though rain and thunder and lightning may be occurring all about them... like a supposed viral pandemic. While some people may huddle together into small enclaves in given circumstances, a sustained enclave (called a nation) of different enclaves (such as states, territories, towns, etc...), is only possible if some larger threat is not perceived. Personal degrees of survival mode may begin to advance themselves into predatory groups or a riot or even revolution if the small enclaves have their particularized rhythms focused by someone or thing which collectivizes them. Understanding the environmental forces which can shape the direction of the herd mentality as the environment deteriorates is of value in predicting the future collectivity of consciousness. The current models of predicting human behavior may not be of value because they are based on models derived from previous historical scenarios correlated to the psychology of fight- freeze or flight types of responses. They do not provide us with details because they are imaginatively simple-minded.

Let us look at the human gait:


The bipedal gait of humans

Two Primary Phases of the Gait Cycle:

  1. Stance phase: Consists of the entire time that a foot is on the ground.
  2. Swing phase: Consists of the entire time that the foot is in the air.

The observation of both the spatial and temporal characteristics of the two lower limbs makes it possible to introduce complementary phases. When both members are simultaneously in the stance phase, we speak of bipedal support or double support (2 times 10%); when only one is in the support phase, one speaks of unipedal support or single support (40%), the second then being in oscillating phase. The most accurate approach is based on the functional interpretation of events and identifies eight phases that capture three tasks related to walking. We then distinguish (Perry & Burnfield, 2010):

  1. Weight acceptance (0-12%): The objectives of weight acceptance are to stabilize the limb, absorb shock and preserve the progression of the body. This phase can be broken down further into initial contact and loading response.
  2. Single limb support (12-50%): Single limb support involves progression of the body over the foot and weight-bearing stability. The first sub-phase of single limb support is midstance, which is seen during the 12-31% of the gait cycle. he second stage of single support is terminal stance which goes from 31-50% of the gait cycle.
  3. Swing phase (50-100%): Three objectives of the swing phase of gait:
    1. Foot clearance over the ground
    2. Forward swing of the limb
    3. Preparation of limb for stance

The swing phase can be broken down into 4 sub-phases: Pre-swing, Initial swing, Mid-swing, Terminal-swing.

Understanding Phases of the Gait Cycle

While understanding the mechanics of physical motion can be usefully and comparatively applied to other "auto" (self) mobile life forms, it is not too difficult for some to include other moments and cycles of non-mobile life forms such as plants, trees, stars, seasons, tides, etc. Whereas the language employed might be altered to include words such as vibration, modulation, reverberation, swaying, rhythm, undulation, etc..., short, medium and long-term patterns may be recognized and applied across a much larger variety of information; thus suggesting a universality of inter-connectedness, like the concentric waves which emerge from dropping a stone into a body of water or the proverbial butterfly effect, but whose origin needs to be reviewed:

"

Understanding the Butterfly Effect by Jamie L. Vernon.

(This article is from the American Scientist May-June 2017 issue, volume 102, Number 3, page 130: DOI: 10.1511/2017.105.3.13)

Nearly 45 years ago, during the 139th meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Edward Lorenz posed a question: Does the flap of a butterfly's wings in Brazil set off a tornado in Texas?" The answer to that question probably differs from what you've heard.

The concept referred to as the butterfly effect has been embraced by popular culture, where the term is often used to emphasize the outsize significance of minute occurrences, as in the 1990 movie Havana, in which Robert Redford, playing the role of Jack Weil, a gambler with a knack for math, proclaims to his costar, Lena Olin, that a butterfly can flutter its wings over a flower in China and cause a hurricane in the Caribbean."

Lorenz, the mild-mannered Massachusetts Institute of Technology meteorology professor who developed the concept, never intended for it to be applied in this way. Indeed, he meant to convey the opposite point.

The purpose of his provocative question, he said, was to illustrate the idea that some complex dynamical systems exhibit unpredictable behaviors such that small variances in the initial conditions could have profound and widely divergent effects on the systems outcomes. Because of the sensitivity of these systems, outcomes are unpredictable. This idea became the basis for a branch of mathematics known as chaos theory, which has been applied in countless scenarios since its introduction.

Lorenz's insight called into question laws introduced as early as 1687 by Sir Isaac Newton suggesting that nature is a probabilistic mechanical system, a clockwork universe." Similarly, Lorenz challenged Pierre-Simon Laplace, who argued that unpredictability has no place in the universe, asserting that if we knew all the physical laws of nature, then nothing would be uncertain and the future, as the past, would be present to [our] eyes."

Lorenz discovered that this deterministic interpretation of the universe could not account for the imprecision in human measurement of physical phenomena. He observed that natures interdependent cause-and-effect relationships are too complex to resolve. To approximate the most likely outcomes for such complex systems as weather patterns, he began using sets of slightly different starting conditions to conduct parallel meteorological simulations. This method is still used today to generate our daily weather forecasts.

On the cover of this issue, we pose a question: If we could rerun life from the beginning, would it turn out the same?" In "Replaying Evolution," Zachary Blount addresses this question through empirical analyses of the Long-Term Evolution Experiment, an ongoing study in experimental evolution—now approaching 30 years of investigation—that has been tracking genetic changes in several initially identical populations of Escherichia coli bacteria. He investigates the role of small differences in the evolutionary substrate on the outcome of the process. Interestingly, in Anyone Can Become a Troll," Justin Cheng, Cristian Danescu-Niculescu-Mizil, Jure Leskovec, and Michael Bernstein explain that the likelihood ordinary people will cultivate certain online behaviors also depends on a specific set of circumstances, ones that neither guarantee nor exclude the possibility of becoming an aggressor; and in Technologue, Smart and Squishy Robots," Yigit Mengüç describes the unique technological conditions under which the development of soft-bodied robots became feasible. Each of these pieces features a complex system—evolutionary, psychological, or technical—that demonstrates the utility of chaos theory for identifying circumstances with unpredictable outcomes.

Although Lorenz died in 2008, it's clear that his enduring contribution to our understanding of complex systems deserves celebration—particularly this May 23rd, which would have been his 100th birthday.

From the foregoing we have the rhythm of the bipedal gait established and continuing since the beginning of humanity, and the concept of one event causing another event at expansive distances called the butterfly effect, whether or not the originator of the idea conceived of it in these terms. By lessening the distance and suggesting that the bipedal mechanics can have a lasting impression on the dynamics of the human psyche, it is to be suggested that this, along with the unmistakable appearance and occurrence of patterns-of-two in genetics such as the exponential doubling of cells during development, has an effect on... if not how we see reality, then how we compartmentalize perceptions which has given us the concepts of yin/yang, duality, dichotomy, etc... While such a pattern can be adaptively useful so long as the environment calls for the usage of such a pattern, the maintenance of such a pattern as a rhythm can act as a leash or cage we lock ourselves into. Likewise with all other patterns such as three, four, seven, five, etc... In other words let us agree that they can be significantly advantageous in providing insight and direction, but in making them into traditions we set ourselves up for being chained to them which can drag us over a cliff.

Yes, we can see the advantages of different characteristics that different species have, so long as they remain in a given environment. And yes, they remain significant if you take only the individual's personal well-being within their lifetime as a primary measurement of value. However, not only the individual but the circumstances under which the individual (or individual nation) is occupying in a given time period. It will be impossible to sustain a changing environment by forcing people to assume the same types of behavior as if the environment has not been altered. As the environment alters, and it is doing so as I write this, humanity is shifting its behavior and adapting to it, but describing it in terms of fashion, fads, or human-related interests and not as human-related necessities to persist in maintaining some semblance of an equilibrium that is not nor will be outside this time period. Whereas it is all too customary to claim that changes in human behavior are due to an increased knowledge, understanding and technological advancement, the more appropriate interpretation may be to say that there is an unrecognized alteration in the environment taking place. Because humanity is a sluggish horde with an accompanying mentality of single-mindedness, truly original visionaries frequently race so fast and far ahead as to leave everyone behind. As a result, they end up chasing their own "tales" claiming them to be the correct direction and path.

Let's review: On Preface page 1 the topic of the insect tripod gait was mentioned. On Preface page two the Bipedal gait was mentioned and elaborated on during the present discussion. Let us now move on to the Quadruped gait, thus giving us another "2-3-4" sequence for the Devil's Advocate series (page 14). The reason for bringing up the different gaits and suggesting a correlation to mindset is that the political ideologies (and other ideas as well) can be seen as reflective of different gaits. Whereas some ideas boast of large enumerations, and those enumerations can be associated with legs or limbs, the gaits are typically reduced to smaller numerical subsets, just as are the ideas in socio-politico-economic theories. In short, we are observing different mental gaits related to the biomechanics being witnessed in the physical dimension. For example, Marx and Engels used a two-patterned dialectic portrayed in a three patterned Hegelian way, which I alternatively view as an embellished dichotomy.

A simple rule for quadrupedal gait generation determined by leg loading feedback: a modeling study by Yasuhiro Fukuoka, Yasushi Habu & Takahiro Fukui

Abstract

We discovered a specific rule for generating typical quadrupedal gaits (the order of the movement of four legs) through a simulated quadrupedal locomotion, in which unprogrammed gaits (diagonal/lateral sequence walks, left/right-lead canters and left/right-lead transverse gallops) spontaneously emerged because of leg loading feedback's to the CPGs hard-wired to produce a default trot. Additionally, all gaits transitioned according to speed, as seen in animals. We have therefore hypothesized that various gaits derive from a trot because of posture control through leg loading feedback. The body tilt on the two support legs of each diagonal pair during trotting was classified into three types (level, tilted up, or tilted down) according to speed. The load difference between the two legs led to the phase difference between their CPGs via the loading feedbacks, resulting in nine gaits (32: three tilts to the power of two diagonal pairs) including the aforementioned.

Because of the large assortment of mammals who use a quadrupedal gait, one might want to think that it would be most useful and that humanity would have been "programmed" to use this model. Then again, most mammals weigh considerably more than humans. In addition, the same goes for the usage of an insect tripod gait, though insects have six legs and spiders have eight legs, centipedes and millipedes notwithstanding. The octopedal gait as discussed here: Biomechanics of octopedal locomotion: kinematic and kinetic analysis of the spider Grammostola mollicoma by Carlo M. Biancardi, C. Gabriel Fabrica, Patricia Polero, Jefferson Fagundes Loss, Alberto E. Minetti; appears to utilize two quadrupedal gaits, with an underlying pairing in some instances. Overall there appears to be a fast and slow displacements (which is a dichotomy that reminds me of the book Thinking, Fast and Slow. According to the Wikipedia article, it summarizes research that Daniel Kahneman conducted over decades, often in collaboration with Amos Tversky.)

If we experience an earthquake and attempt to navigate with a typical gait, we find it difficult and attempt to adjust ourselves accordingly to uneven terrain. Infrequent earthquakes makes it difficult to establish an "earthquake gait rhythm," but even with earthquake patterns which establish a rhythm our gait would not be the conventional rhythms we presently describe as normal or typical. In other words, untypical social rhythms such as riots and revolutions may well signal mass responses to environmental changes like birds and other animals that we claim are sensitive to events humans are not typically in-tune with. The planet can affect body movements just as the body movements can affect thinking as described here: Change Your Movement, Change Your Brain We can use our bodies to help us think better; by Steve Sisgold.

One of the body movements is to smile very broadly for a sustained measure of time and this will affect one's mood. Many people are aware that it takes more muscles to smile than to frown and that the affected posture can effect the corresponding result. Hence, if you are sad try smiling and if you are smiling at this try to frown. Your brain will pick up on the signals and alter one's composure accordingly. If we then interpret environmental events in terms of some supposed muscles, muscles or groups of muscles related to the Earth as being altered from time to time, then different life forms by extension (in keeping with this line of thinking), exhibit the moods. Wars, revolutions and even smaller riots, pandemics, etc., might will be correlated to how humans are responding to environmental changes. while this idea may appear to be in and of itself strange enough to some readers, trying to map out more than just some supposition might even appear rather quirky if not stupid since they do not typically allow themselves to explore alternative ideas.

If Communism, Democracy and Socialism are mere points of a radiant reflecting notions of the past, present and future, whether or not the reader adds or subtracts to them to create a smaller or larger spectrum of consideration; what do we do if we come to find out that these three ideas are also related to that which influenced the development of the triplet code in DNA, and this inturn is a product of a solar influence whose three phases (dawn- noon- dusk) are undergoing a fusion? While some are claiming Communism is an end point humanity is directed towards, they are not simultaneously viewing it as a point in time without a future itself. In other words, it is a point in time that is up against a wall with nowhere to go. It is the beginning and end of humanity fused with the present. Communism nor any other idea will provide us with an actual utopia, heaven, bliss, enlightenment, etc., because each of them represents a deadened that is described in different ways. They all describe the future grave of humanity covered over with flowers, wreaths, and various other ritualistic practices of remembering and honoring the dead. It is a gait whose rhythm of thinking we must strive to be intentionally broken. We must break free of such domesticated forms of thought. The old and present ideas of Communism, Democracy, Socialism, etc., (also religion and business), must be viewed in terms of paths carved out by environmental forces undergoing incremental changes we are dismissivley taking for granted but our reactions to them are not. And this in no way means I am talking about trying to preserve an Earthly environment for future generations that will necessarily be forced to face their own types of ongoing incremental deteriorations. Salvation for humanity, if there is to be one, will be far from the planet Earth.
