The need for philosophical synthesis of religion

The need for philosophical synthesis of religion

12. Survival technology

Nowadays, in the era of globalization, when further barriers dividing nations disappear, in order to communicate and coexist, we must develop a certain global standard of ethical norms. The lack of an effective global system of regulating the behavior of individuals and societies has become a barrier to development, a threat to the human community. Until now, people, educated from animals, have been guided by instinct, behavior patterns resulting from adaptation to life in the bosom of nature. Centuries ago, in various civilizations, germs of ethics appeared, a new way of adapting a man to the growing social environment. Ethics, the canon of the behavior of the individual cementing the society, is a reaction of the living populations of organisms to the threat of the natural and social environment. The threat from the environment must be removed and this triggers adaptation mechanisms in the endangered society. One of these mechanisms is the gathering of knowledge about the environment and cooperation in its use to develop survival technology.

What is survival technology?

Technology is a way to achieve the assumed goal conditioned by the state of knowledge and social efficiency (Lem 1974: 32-33).

Our goal is to survive the oncoming climate crisis, which is the most important and inevitable threat for us, which is why we need to gain knowledge and social skills. What does it mean to gain knowledge – we understand, but what does it mean to be socially fit?

A socially-minded society must cooperate in order not to waste energy (energy) and to effectively achieve the purpose of survival. It is a society with a high ability to cooperate, an ethical society. Therefore, social efficiency is based on social bonds. It is based on an ethics that saves social energy in achieving the goal of survival. The ethics of society is a function of its knowledge accumulated in response to a threat. Static society, not counteracting crises, is exposed to revolutions. Each revolution looks the same – the rebellion of citizens against deteriorating living conditions. You must find a guilty crisis situation – a victim of aggression – they have always been the richest because the best-educated social elite.

Each time the extermination of the elites caused dark ages in the life of the community. The conclusion is that contemporary elites should create mechanisms for educating and enriching the poor masses to prevent anticipated crises.

Our Modern Survival Technology will determine the use of all of our civilization’s output and it will probably look like this:

1. mechanisms that provide everyone with the opportunity to acquire knowledge and wealth,

2. organizing peaceful migration of nations from overcrowded lands,

3. developing a uniform ethical system.

We see that we need to develop knowledge about social mechanisms and mass means of transport to develop a policy of implementing the first two demands. However, without a uniform ethics, ensuring consistent cooperation of the global community, we will do nothing. A unified ethical system must be created for the whole world community, based on the universal principle of saving all energy, which will enable close international cooperation.

Global climate change has always caused social conflicts and mass migrations. They can only be prevented by the consistent implementation of modern survival technology, expressed in the equation:


Applying knowledge and ethics will give effectiveness (energy) to our global activities. The limits of knowledge are wisdom, and the boundary of ethics is love. May clever love between people provide us with the highest effectiveness in overcoming the oncoming climate crisis. This will ensure a peaceful life for future generations.

Climate warming is currently under way, which causes aggression in Asia and Africa to grow due to the decline in agricultural production and deteriorating living conditions. Migration from these continents to the USA and Europe is growing. At the same time, in the G-8 countries there is the phenomenon of agricultural overproduction with a decrease in the size of the population. All this together causes the financial and economic crisis. The logic of history allows us to expect the emergence of an outstanding figure, the creator of a new order and a universal ethical system that unites humanity on the way out of the crisis. This leader will have to apply the message of Jesus Christ, who said: “Share bread for my remembrance” (Luke 22:19), because this is the love of your neighbor. If the warming continues, it will worsen the situation in the equatorial countries. There will be a wave of migration to food-rich countries. If cooling comes, it will bring a disaster for the civilization of the white man, a decline in the volume of agricultural production and a sharp global rise in food prices. In such an event the world will not survive and the situation will start to destabilize. We can not allow this.

The fruit of my thoughts is the theory that universal ethics have a physical dimension. The ability of individuals and societies to save all forms of energy, including social energy, is a measure of ethics. An effective ethical system makes the society more efficient and more dynamic. The ethical person is the man who lives at the expense of using the least amount of energy. Ethics is the art of saving energy.
The social environment arose as a form of defense against an unfavorable natural environment. The emergence of ethical systems regulating the behavior of individuals in the social environment is therefore an adjustment mechanism to the surrounding environment. The lack of an effective ethical system is therefore a sign of lack of adaptation to the environment. In other words, ethical standards needed for man are the result of reactions to the surrounding natural environment. The world we live in constantly improves us, makes us more ethical. Better people create a more and more perfect human world. Our world is developing. So probably the goal of the world is development.

Ethics is the result of the evolution of the collective consciousness of people reacting to threats coming from the surrounding environment. Probably ethics, as our limitation to the social environment, will replace the less and less needed primary instincts that in the earlier stages of evolution determined our reactions to nature. The global development of a unified ethical system will remove the development barriers facing mankind and will affect the development of civilization. The growing Internet, removing barriers to access to knowledge, is a new form of collective consciousness of humanity. It is a new environment in which we learn to live. Probably in this new online environment that brings people closer, new, unified ethics will be created. Unified ethics will enable peaceful cooperation of the world community and use, thanks to the Internet, all knowledge accumulated by humanity. Skillfully used knowledge will discover new sources of energy which will open amazing perspectives to people. It will probably enable our consciousness to grow into the limits of the world. The boundaries of this world will be determined by the resources of available energy. Until we can ignite the stars and create a new world.

The need for philosophical synthesis of religion

Ram Mohan Roy- “One of the important features of Roy’s worldview was also his religious universalism. It has already been mentioned above that Roy had a research workshop that enabled him to undertake real comparative research in religious studies. He knew the Koran, the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, the Vedas and Upanishads, and came to the conclusion that the core of these religious systems is identical – the only God in the spiritual form, the immortality of the soul, ethical discipline as the basis of spiritual life. The differences are of a secondary nature, they result simply from different traditions of particular religious groups “(Justyński 1985: 42).

This is what the Buddhist Daisaku Ikeda says about the need for a new religion:

“I am convinced that only the new religion will be able to take on leadership in a civilization that will combine science and philosophy on a higher plane. However, the religion we need will have to inspire the scientific and philosophical spirit of humanity and will have to face the needs of a new age. It must be a religion that can transcend the differences between East and West and – binding all of humanity into one body – to save the West from its current crisis, and the East from its current difficulties. The discovery of this kind of religion is the most important task facing mankind today “(Toynbee, Ikeda 1999: 321).

“Earth is our only home. According to the current state of scientific knowledge, this may be the only planet on which life was created. The view that made the biggest impression on me was the first picture of the Earth seen from space. The image of a blue globe floating in an unlimited space, shining like a full moon against the backdrop of a clear night sky, made me realize with great force that we are in fact one family living in a small house. I clearly felt how ridiculous are all these differences of views and disputes in our human family. I have noticed the nonsense of persistent insistence on what divides us. From this cosmic perspective one can see the fragility and sensitivity of our planet circling in a limited orbit, squeezed between Venus and Mars in an infinite vastness of space. If we do not care about our home, what else makes sense? (Dalai Lama 2006: 160).

Religion as such is a system that embraces all races and all denominations, it is a path leading everyone to brotherhood. Regardless of how believers embody their faith, they generally recognize values such as love, respect, tolerance, forgiveness, mercy, human rights, peace, brotherhood and freedom, proclaimed by religion. Most of these values have found their wonderful expression in the messages of Moses, Jesus and Muhammad as well as in the teachings of Buddha and Zoroaster, Lao-tsa, Confucius and Hindu thinkers.

The above text was written by the eminent Turkish thinker Fetullah Gulen in “The Need for Interreligious Dialogue” – this text is available on the website about the link:

Organized religions, if they are to survive – they must accept the view that revelation is not the ultimate and given thing, but from the will of God the truth must be obtained evolutionarily step by step. Our mind is subject to constant development through knowledge. (…) Teilhard (Father Teilhard de Chardin *) – whose actions were not recognized by his religious superiors or the Roman curia – showed that Christianity can not only incorporate into its system all the achievements of modern science, but also for a philosophical-religious synthesis that secular philosophy does not provide (Mieroszewski 1999: 25).

Sex ratio and wars and revolutions

V.4.52. Sex ratio – masculinity factor and social moods in Poland.

In the following article I will present theses that require further study of sociologists, biologists and historians, as well as demographers. Perhaps we will be able, thanks to the knowledge gained, to streamline our political actions, which will avoid future revolutions and wars. My yesterday talk with colleagues in the work of Krystyna Kasztelewicz and Ewa Szutkowska, who stated that in her preschool group her son Antka dominated the boys, gave me an idea for the article. Many years ago I listened to a radio program about the sexual research of children in African tribes. The show showed that well-nourished mothers were more likely to give birth to boys. Ewa Szutkowska stated that male fetuses are weaker than girls and more often die during early pregnancy. It would appear from this that male fetuses need better maternal living conditions to survive. It would then be ascertained whether girls are born during periods of malnutrition of mothers and as fetuses stronger they are more likely to live to be born and dominate in the populations of undernourished societies?

I confirmed this observation in the work of the Polish sociologist Piotr Szukalski ” The birth of boys and girls” link:

The sex ratio projection in Poland, over several decades, from pre-war Poland to the present, indicated the strong predominance of boys in pre-war Poland (indicating better feeding of mothers), during the PRL period the constant coefficient of masculinity was decreasing, indicating An increasingly poor nutrition of Polish mothers, and finally, a growing masculinity index, which shows a better feeding of Polish society and Polish mothers. Conclusions from the observations of the above graph confirm the results of my research proving that the 1970s climate crisis and the world food price increase have affected the revolutionary attitude of undernourished Polish society. Failure to meet the basic obligation of the Polish People’s Republic, which is agricultural policy conducive to proper nutrition of society, including excessive and unprofitable export of food to the Soviet Union, caused social protests and the revolution of Solidarity.

Analysis of the shaping of the masculinisation coefficient-sex ratio and other demographic indicators and the food situation of societies may provide conclusions about the possible course of social moods, which have so far surprised politicians. Carrying out research on these issues can help keep the peace of all societies and global peace. The war mechanism described in my book Natural History and Climate Change shows that wars erupt after the initial period of good food in societies in which a population with a strong predominance of young men is growing, followed by a climate crisis and a rise in food prices bringing increased levels of social aggression. Unfulfilled reproductive ambitions and sexual stress associated with the crisis, and the difficulty of finding partners, causes aggressive attitudes among young men in favor of politicians calling for war. Hence, it is only a step to the aggressive behavior of entire states.

The precondition for good food has been in the 80s since the 1980s and probably the masculinity ratios of most countries have probably increased. The climate crisis that I forecast in the near future will affect global pro-war attitudes.

Will they be prevented?

The chart above shows the change in magnetic activity Sun – Total sunspot number (blue color), a negative correlation with changes in the index of food prices by FAO. Since 1999, the index of food prices rising, especially in periods of declining activity magnetic of the Sun – decreasing values of Total Sunspot Number. In the period 2019-2040 will age decrease in the magnetic activity of the Sun and with it will increase global food prices. Increase the level of oil and gas prices, and inflation will rise which will lead to a global and very rapid economic and political crisis. I warn against this crisis for many years, but somehow not visible.

See the following articles:

What we can see on above picture is higher temperature in Northern Hemisphere NH versus Southern Hemisphere SH in period around 1914-1956 and 1997-2017. It can be explained by shift of Earth’s coating over liquid Earth’s core. Meteorological stations located all around the globe have moved to the ecliptic that way, so on the northern hemisphere is more of solar irradiance versus southern hemisphere, and higher temperatures in NH are being noted, and SH is cooling.

3. Mechanism of changes in global food prices

Behind the changes in the location of the earth’s coating goes the changes in the distribution of precipitation zones in the north-south direction during the reverse movement of the coating from north to south and vice versa.

Food surpluses produced in the white man civilization countries where there is a great concentration of agricultural property and a reduction in the farmer population. If these countries move along with the earth’s coating into areas of unfavorable rainfall, food production is reduced. Reduced production occurs both in drought and excessive rainfall. Reducing food production results in a global increase in market prices, which in turn increases the area of agricultural crops (Fig.2) , resulting in an increase in food production and lowering prices.

When the earth’s coating again moves back, there is a global improvement in the weather conditions in countries of western civilization, an increase in output per hectare, and an excess of food causing a decline in its price. And so in the circle. Food prices are affected by transport prices. In periods of decline in production in countries with no surplus food, there is an increase in the transport of food from countries with surpluses of food. This results in a significant increase in freight rates, which increases the price of food shipped. So, the drop in food production among the major food consumers in Asia is likely to increase freight rates, ie the BDI Baltic Dry Index?

Since about 1997 the northern hemisphere has begun to warm up, with respect to the southern hemisphere (see Fig. 3), and at the same time, the world food prices have risen sharply (Figure 1). Also during this period the total amount of precipitation in the USA and India decreased and the speed of rotation of the Earth increased (see link and decreased magnetic activity of the Sun (Fig.1). The gravitational forces around the Earth have increased and the earth’s coating has shifted (see “Why Earth’s Coatings Rotate Around the Liquid Core of the Earth?” Link – that on the northern hemisphere is more the sunny and US and India shifted up to the zone smaller rainfall.

There is likely to have been a decrease in the volume of food production in the US and India and other countries on the same latitude and rise in world food prices. The upcoming decrease in magnetic activity of the sun will likely again result in similar physical effects around the Earth, and on the Earth, and food prices will again begin to rise sharply. I ask the question: What is more effective? Do you transport food endlessly to countries that need it? Would not to be better to carry a surplus of population from overpopulated countries to countries with surplus agricultural land? In my opinion, this will safeguard us from the adverse effects of climate change. Further research is needed!!!

Theory of rational action

Theory of rational action

Bogdan Góralski

Library of the Historical Institute of the University of Warsaw

Guy Sorman writes in the book entitled “Made in the USA” on page 176:

Let us remind you that according to the theory of rational action – dominant in American universities – each unit is reasonable, rational in every culture and every age. Our individual decisions would have depended on economic logic. Everyone works – or more accurately: behaves – as if he were calculating the future profits he hoped for thanks to his current behavior.

Let us consider the meaning of the above statements. Is the unit rational ??? Let’s look at the historical process and draw conclusions.

The above graph illustrates the real wheat price in Europe over the centuries. Wheat prices are an indicator of the cost of living for the people of Europe. The following chart is a picture of changes in the cost of living on the Eurasian continent:

Fig 27 Prices of cereals in China and Europe in 1738-0906 years (in grams of silver per kilogram)

The above chart comes from the following work resulting from the cooperation of many authors:

Link to the above work:

The chart is evidence of the existence of a climate inversion between Europe and Asia. The end of the 18th and 19th Centuries had a cold and humid climate in northern Europe, and there were bad and low yields. In southern Asia (southern Europe as well), there were more favorable climatic conditions for agriculture and lower food prices. In the beginning  20th century, the nutritional crisis moved to the East (Russia and China), which is also due to climatic inversion. The phenomenon of climate inversion I described in the article entitled “Development of Europe and Asia in the Little Ice Age and its contemporary consequences.”

Both charts and analysis of the historical process prove that high food prices affect the outbreaks of the French Revolution, the Spring of Nations, the Russian Revolution, and the Chinese Revolution. What can we say in this context about the rationality of people’s reaction to the rise in food prices? The behavior for people is based on the principle: When I live well, the authorities are right, but when I am hungry, I have to change the powers. The policy of irrationality of human reactions explains the outbreaks of all revolutions. However, are destructive social behaviors rational?

Each change in the power elite entails enormous material, psychological and social costs. Revolutions make the worse functioning of the social system of states, which we see in contemporary Eurasian examples. Revolutions do not improve the existence of nations. Revolutions are not rational at all, because the revolutionary reactions of citizens are based on false premises. As food and living costs increase, the people rebel against the authorities, blaming it for the economic crisis.

Meanwhile, periodic rapid increases in food prices and the resulting economic crises are the result of climatic cycles related to solar activity. Authorities are generally without fault. Nature and our environment, and its cyclical changes are to blame.

The last 200 years have been a constant decline in global food prices. Another climate crisis is inevitably coming, which will trigger a massive increase in food prices. People around the globe will start rebelling against power. Will these protests be rational? No, because they will be based on false premises. Human knowledge about the causes of food and economic crises is nil. The gap in human knowledge about the origins of crises removes my book called “Natural history and climate change” available on the Research Gate portal and the portal. It will be better for the world’s elite when my book will popularize, and the masses of people will learn about the natural-revolutionary mechanism. Otherwise, who knows what will happen ???
