Humanity led itself increasingly astray over time from chief competitor among other competing and evolving lifeforms and toward total domination and increasing degrees of self-awareness. The latter part, it seems, is akin to the biblical partaking of the forbidden fruit. The result is that modern man consciously positions himself and self-image at the center of the universe. Since the universe does not revolve around mankind's existence, anthrocentricism is a type of self-deception we moderns affirm with one another and pass along to the next generation. Nonetheless, our societies today are founded with a self-deceptive, anthrocentric, me-first orientation which when put to the test, fails to square with objective reality as it really exists. With the preceding concept in mind, your ten points could better be answered.
Great post. Are you familiar with Daniel Quinn or Julian Jaynes? The latter is particularly interesting to me, but it's rare to find any discussion on him. I was just curious, since you made the correlation between individualism and self-awareness.
Here's my take on these questions:
1. Overpopulation and multiculturalism. Solutions: Eugenics and segregation; also, when possible, getting rid of the division of labor.
2. Attempts at explaining what hunter-gatherers were either already familiar with for millions of years, or had never been exposed to due to limited consciousness. Solution: Think foundationally, with precedence in mind; shamans come before Derrida.
3. Liberalism disguised as goal achievement-engineering. Solution: Destroy academia completely and focus on passing on valuable traditions and skills.
4. A secular, materialistic, and pragmatic variant of number two; as such, number two's solution still applies.
5. Aural ritual in a crisis due to lacking any context other than a capitalistic one. Solution: Emphasize the eternal in music and deny anything which praises the finite.
6. Irrelevant pairing of words loosely related to number one.
7. Individualism is what happens when conscious beings wind up low on resources -- either material resources, in the case of the Fertile Crescent and the emergence of ancient Egypt, et al., or idealistic resources, in the case of modernity. Consequently, castes form and subjugation begins in the former, while ostensible classlessness results in degeneracy in the latter. If we are to preserve servitude and caste systems, we must emphasize beauty through holism rather than morality or progress. However, castes have only existed for the last several thousand years -- a paltry amount of time in the face of humanity's lengthy history -- so finding a transcendental alternative could work (and might not be a bad idea given the cyclical trap of rise and fall we've recently entered).
8. Meaningless abstraction put in place to justify domination and overconsumption. Solution: Eliminate.
9. Technology is about three million years old. There's nothing inherently wrong with it whatsoever. Like a lot of the above, precedence and context must be stressed. Guns don't kill people; people kill people. Technology doesn't destroy societies; people destroy societies -- or further still, memes destroy societies.
