I will try to clarify the forms of management in our society in this article. Once again, I will also write a bit in a sci-fi spirit to allow for a larger perspective on the issue, so please bear with me in certain sections.
In ancient times, when the Earth's population was much lower than it is today, people had limited possibilities. The computing power of our species was far lower, and so was our technological advancement. In order to ensure the continuous development of humanity, it was necessary to direct it towards a development path so that it would not destroy itself through its own ignorance. The main forms of management are clearly visible today. They can be divided into two categories: direct and indirect (simplified). If we consider the interconnected world in which everything affects everything, we must acknowledge the impossibility of protecting ourselves from the governing influence and recognize its natural basis. Either we manage or we allow ourselves to be managed.
People can be controlled in two natural ways. Directly through commands, prohibitions, violence, emotions, and so on (there are more tools). Indirectly through concepts, ideas, stories, theories, religions, all of which are meant to convince us of something and based on which we are supposed to make decisions in our lives.
Managing society is not easy at all. The problem with management arises from the nature of our world, that the world is made up of an infinite number of consciousnesses with the same potential. If you imagine the world and the entire space as an ocean of energy, then you clearly see that each autonomous unit has the ability to directly control its space and adjacent energy surroundings. Whether it's a dog, cat, human, fish, crayfish :))), anything.., I don't know about you, but personally, I also control my body quite well and move nearby objects :). So every consciousness has potentially the same capabilities. We are only distinguished by the level of awareness, otherwise written as the level of consciousness, which also determines our starting position
More effective management of a society is conceptual (indirect). If you can get others to believe in and adopt your ideas, they will begin to manage themselves and change their surroundings according to those ideas, even without realizing they are being led by you. However, concepts cannot be grasped overnight, and the more bizarre the concept you offer, the longer it takes to convince others. It is said that it takes 25 years to change a concept in people's minds, which is the time it takes for a new generation to grow up and be indoctrinated with your "new trend" from an early age. Therefore, patience is required. A repeated lie becomes the truth. This is the basic principle of every media outlet that claims to be influential :). Now imagine if a state declared war on another state and had to wait 25 years to convince its people of the need to wage war. It happens, which is why we now talk about information wars, hybrid wars, but it is much faster to mobilize people by giving them direct orders. You start to manage them directly. "Don't ask questions, just do it!" "If you don't do it, you'll go to jail." "It's a service to the country!" Direct management is faster and targets objectives "surgically," but it is very susceptible to failure. If you keep telling someone what to do for a long time, even if they are a fool, they will eventually realize and resist you. Therefore, you will achieve a counterproductive result. Managing a society requires the right balance between direct and indirect management. In a global context, we are talking about a super system. The management system is balanced (stabilized) by an artificially created tool that was invented very cleverly and a long time ago, with the future in mind. That tool is money. Money directly controls you based on concepts. It is a mix of direct and indirect management. The more you believe in the idea that you cannot live without money, the more susceptible you are to foreign management. The effectiveness of managing with money has only increased throughout history. While in older times money was not as effective, today it is the main tool for managing society.
I'll digress a bit...
I'm fascinated by how people in ancient times realized the need to lead and guide others towards development, and how they could plan tasks with a horizon of 1000 years or more. What am I talking about? Look at the times of the pharaohs. It was a time when a caste of people was clearly visible, who possessed knowledge far beyond the average person of that time. There is a story that clearly describes the maturity of decisions with thinking about consequences for the distant future. The Egyptians and the Hittites fought many wars together, and it is difficult today to speculate on the reasons and the whole context of their disputes, but after one battle, Pharaoh Ramses had a monument carved where he claimed to have won the battle against the Hittites that day. Historians attribute this fact to the pharaoh's vanity, as there is undeniable evidence that he lost the battle at that time, and it was a crushing defeat. Despite this, I believe that the pharaoh's defeat in the battle was a farsighted move that went far beyond the decisions of that time. Many leaders of ancient Egypt participated in the battle. After the battle, many Egyptians were taken captive into slavery, with numbers in the tens of thousands. The Hittites celebrated a great triumph and thought that they had defeated their rival forever, but they themselves did not realize their defeat. Over the next generations, the Hittite empire fell apart. The captive Egyptians, as they possessed enormous knowledge, began to apply management in the Hittite empire itself. Gradually, slowly. At first, with their quality, the slaves gained the favor of their masters, who began to gradually liberate them for their merits, they started to found communities, and later they applied for managerial positions in the country. So the Hittites did not assimilate the Egyptians, but the Egyptians assimilated the Hittites. They won the battle, but lost the war. There is power in knowledge, regardless of the starting position. Less knowledgeable people cannot influence more conscious ones. The level of knowledge decided. Since then, peace has prevailed on the northern borders of Egypt. For a while, but those are other stories. Egypt fell apart, and the whole region changed, but the Egyptian management of the world did not disappear, it just transformed and adapted to the times. If you are attentive, you can still see it today. It is represented by a group we call the globalists (globalists because they realized the necessity of resource globalization long before others).
So if I'm considering in the project that the world is interconnected and the computing power of a species is influenced by its population, how is it possible that in ancient times there were castes among people who far surpassed all others in knowledge? They were able to plan far beyond one generation, even at a time when people's highest priority was to reproduce and feed themselves? And this was even in a region dominated by the black race, which I claim statistically has the least chance of developing such a complex understanding of the world. Either I'm wrong, or try to look at the problem through the eyes of science fiction. Pyramids were not only built in Egypt, but with various variations, they were built all over the world, from America, through Africa, Europe, to Asia. Not only buildings, but also trends can be found around the world. For example, in every culture from east to west, bodies of babies with bound heads were found to artificially elongate their skulls. What if people artificially tried to imitate the shape of the pharaoh's head? To give the impression that their child belongs to a higher caste? Or just in honor of the monarchs who helped people from the beginning with their decisions? It doesn't matter how accurate the assumption is, on the project's homepage I'm thinking about what if our species is artificial intelligence? What if another civilization (or civilizations) is trying to steer our development in a certain direction in order to artificially densify space and gain additional computing power to solve problems far beyond our understanding? What if the pharaohs' castes were members of other civilizations that inhabit (realize) the space? If we look at the size of the universe and its age, there could be an incredible number of those kinds of species. I can imagine that we are not the first kind to lead the way in development. If so, then it is easier to understand and imagine that they have enough experience to anticipate the development of humanity in the horizon of millennia...
What if in ancient times conceptual centers of society management were deliberately created in different locations on the planet in order to bring diversity of decision-making among people? What am I writing about? Religion. Religions were long representatives of indirect control of people on the planet. They contain concepts and foundations of morality. Even though they go in different directions, common overlaps can be found in them. So what if another civilization taught people in different places, different philosophies, to artificially achieve diversity of opinions and create a foundation for achieving contrast in the future? Contrast that aims to teach us to see? Teach us to look at the world as a whole? Teach us cooperation? Each religion contains a statement about family, which is the foundation of society. Not only is it true, but this idea ensured continuous population growth in different parts of the planet. The more we are, the more our possibilities rise, our computing power increases. It's nice to see this in the gradual development of our technologies. From history, we know that in every area where individual philosophies met, friction points arose. At a certain point, wars and struggles for control influence emerged between different religions. I'm saying that without this contrast, we could never see the importance of unity. Paradoxically, our mistakes push us forward. So what if we can think of humanity as a social project, where members of different races, different philosophies were placed in one place to cause awareness of the species through interaction?...
Even in today's world, you can see various forms of society governance on Earth. Society behaves differently in America, Europe, Russia, China, India, Africa, Asia, and look at the border between North and South Korea. These contrasts are clearly visible. The combination of the problem of everyone being in the same boat along with the increase in resource consumption and population growth will eventually bring us to the final frontier, where we will either begin to collaborate with each other, or our technological advancement will result in the extinction of our species (in the case of population reduction alone, it will push us back to the Middle Ages). Personally, I am an optimist. The more conscious and interconnected people are, the harder it becomes to centrally control them, and self-correction begins to work. If you write something stupid on the web, someone will react and correct your opinion. We live in an era of awareness. The fact that there are multiple centers of governance on Earth and not just one ensures freedom of decision-making and the ability to see the right direction. You can impose censorship in one country, but as long as there is free access to information in other countries, the awareness of the whole world constantly increases.
So I claim that the right direction for us is to decentralize the management of society, which means teaching each and every one of us to manage our lives and our immediate surroundings. Knowledge needs to be spread among people. Management is actually conscious living in its essence. If you have shortcomings in management, it is clearly visible in your life as well. There are many situations that arise from the inability to manage, such as a bad family situation, an incomplete family, arguments in the household, complicated relationships, loneliness, etc. Let go of exclusively direct management of your surroundings. If you push it too hard, your surroundings won't love you, and you'll lose any influence over time. Try to persuade your surroundings with arguments, learn to manage indirectly, and be patient. Let go of constant confrontation. Constant direct management leads to counterproductive results. Each of us must learn to be an autonomous creative element in our common world; that is our essence. If we ourselves cannot manage/live, it's useless to rely on others. You can elect anyone to the government, even someone with abilities and good intentions, but if they are to be managers of the unaware, their results will not be seen, and the set goals will not be achieved. In my opinion, other civilizations also realize this issue, so they try to become aware (educate, teach independence) of the cosmic space (conscious autonomous units). Our effort should be the same. The fact that we have equal opportunities and reproduction in our own hands is proof of our free will and the good intentions of other civilizations. Anyone who wants to gain an advantage over others must first prevent them from reproducing, reduce their numbers, reduce their options, and thus prevent them from becoming aware. Start families, become aware/educate/lead your sons and daughters to independence. The family is the basic unit in which progress is made in society. You can test the level of your knowledge about management by raising a new autonomous unit (son/daughter), and their behavior in adulthood will be your reflection. In my opinion, the purpose of life is precisely the awareness of space. The more we are (the more conscious space we have), and the more aware we are, the greater our opportunities, greater abilities, and the faster we approach prosperity and utopia. Don't be afraid; fear (emotion) is also used only as a management tool. A conscious person does not have to be afraid of anything. If you have knowledge, it doesn't matter what your starting situation is; you can even be a slave, but "at the end of the day," you will be the one who dominates the management of your surroundings. If you lack knowledge, you may win millions in the lottery, but you won't sustain your resources and "at the end of the day," you will once again be a slave dependent on someone else's control.
Project:Z is one of the attempts to achieve awareness. However, it is not the only project. For example, in Russia, they have embarked on it at a professional level. I recommend each one of you to study the "concept of social security". It is specifically a study, because the texts are written quite challenging, but they analyze the issue of society management in detail.
