We are at one amazing moment of global history: there are people from the top who have been trying to construct new world order while there are people on the Earth, who wake up every morning with only one power – the fragile power of moral and culture. The majority of the second category of people does not mean victory, since the top may dominate and suppress humanity. The science unfortunately does not bridge both categories. The top usually dictates who to make science today and the science today is one of the most devolved aspects of human life.
Douglass W. Bailey has been attempting for decades to make changes in archaeology as science about people. One of his theoretical directions is bringing on the table of archaeology the mind of other people. It helps the complex science since today we have been redefining archaeology as science about people based on materiality of world from the beginning of human society till the furthest point of human future with material traces.
First, we need to understand there are many today who hate the world people if these people do not do whatever they are asked to do. This hate brings enslaved ideology in countries like Bulgaria. However, many may see in the Russian Aeroflot greeting at Frankfurt am Main Main station (see the photo) a visible trace of invisible German-Russian (imperialistic) project to enslave Eurasia against China and USA. It is a dangerous project against humanity, peace and moral, for the life of many of not most of the world. Aeroplot is well known as main assistant in KGB violent terrorist project.
Then, today science should be very sensitive and everybody who spends even a minute to think on past should have in the brain the thought that past is needed for actual research past if helps humanity today and in future.
This is exactly a kind of seed coming from one of the most recent works of Douglass W Bailey. He found a constructor-pillar for his work in the brain theory of Richard Gregory. He wrote:
“The psychologist Richard Gregory has investigated what happens when our brains are confronted with challenges to sensory perception, particularly when we see a recognizable image that has a part missing … The brain solves these types of problems by calling on its record of our previous experiences and then efficiently providing the missing information. In most situations this is not a problem and our brains are so good at doing this that we don’t even notice that it has happened. However, when a significant amount of information is missing, our brains struggle to fill in the gap(s).
Our brains search our experiences for the missing information with increasing intensity.
In the most extreme situations, when the amount or type of missing information is substantial enough, our brains fail to fill the vacuum.” (Bailey 2012: 250).
To this scientific approach to brain we can add everyday observation that people in stress may think with more parameters that people who do not experience stress (observation of Anthony at Frankfurt Hostel, December 13, 2013).
Then, why Christmas 2013 is not most exciting feast for many on both sides of the ocean is probably a result of the feeling of missing trustful information at the end of the year how the world will function next year. The end of the year is a time for enjoyable pleasure for all ages, but today we all depend too much on politics and decision of people who make politics which fact scares more than satisfies people.
Then, we can formulate a complex science constructor which may sound like this:
If science is a solid knowledge, it should be also applied in politics, and the politicians may bring on the table of people solid plans for stable humankind based on global principals of moral and culture. If such solid plans are missing, the human brain searches for alternatives and one of the main alternatives is the protest.
Accordingly, because of complex science reasons and not because of craziness and stupidness Bulgarians will again protest on 10 January 2014 to try to make science work in life – they want all people to sleep on pillows under which there are healthy moral dreams and rich culture, not amorality, corrupted power and crime. Bulgarian nation is a smart nation, although under decades of pressure of the Russian boot.
