Myths Persist Throughout all Eras – the deluge myth has been recounted in the Epic of Gilgamesh, the Bible, the Torah, and the Koran. Myths seem to survive the rise and fall of civilizations, religions, and even cataclysms and mass extinctions.

We have had 25 Mass Extinctions (26 Including this Human induced mass extinction of species on earth), the 5 major ones being  the Ordovician Mass Extinction, Devonian Mass Extinction, Permian Mass Extinction, Triassic-Jurassic Mass Extinction, and Cretaceous-Tertiary.

This, and the concept of A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) Algorithms with machine learning (the program teaches itself without human intervention) being the same process found in Nature’s Evolutionary Algorithms. Creation and Evolution is limited to a certain geometric pattern of self growth and development, and is unescapable, be it nature’s Invisible Process of Evolution, or Human Created Self Learning Machine learning deep Learning A.I. Algorithms. But Civilizations suffer Cataclysms and Fall Into Entropy, or suffer Catabolic Entropy and dissilve through lack of  resources due to fast growth, fall of economy, rebellions , the Steady State, Production in relation to Expansion, and so on.

I delve into Cyberpunk a bit at the end and talk about how the respective benefits and deficits which lie between Artificial Intelligence, and those found in Living Sentient beings (in this case, Humans), will inevitably blend and fuse together in a symbiosis of Human and Machine, Mind and A.I.

I wish I could have had time to go into machine A.I. as to how the inclusion of a conscience (set rules of ethics) should be programmed into a DEEP LEARNING ALGORHYTHM, in order to make sure no conditioned ethics are present.

But that a set of truly universally fair, and logical decisions can be made when confronting social, religious, legal or other dilemmas. The A.I. state oof the art in the moment is able to map the universe, and do scientific computations, and also make simple decisions as to what it thinks we might want. But that’s it.

 “In Space Odyssey 2001, HAL 9000, the Heuristically Programmed Algorithmic Computer, consigned the crew commander to his death by refusing to open the pod bay doors. Leaping forward to today, with life hopefully transcending Arthur C. Clarke’s fiction, NASA has announced a visionary step: that intelligent computer systems will be installed on space probes”

An algorithm, such as if a cyborg police officer sees that he can either save the victim and let the criminal escape, and be destroyed himself in the process, or, catch the criminal and lose the victim who would die, or, sacrifice itself and save the victim whilst killing the criminal.


How could the A.I. decide what to do?,  if its only command, was to apprehend the criminal alive, or to apprehend the criminal and save the victim? What set of ethics if any should be programmed into the laws of robotics and of A.I. machine learning algorithms ???

The topics and categories and rankings given with the current sets and modules of algorithms in Deep learning, despite producing amazing feats, are still missing too many abstract variables of living human society, in order to make accurate conclusions and decisions. Life is not a game of GO, and Alpha Go cannot give life advice to Humans, and probably never will be able to.

Computer vision models are struggling to appropriately tag depictions of the new scenes or situations we find ourselves in during the COVID-19 era. Categories have shifted. For example, say there’s an image of a father working at home while his son is playing. AI is still categorizing it as “leisure” or “relaxation.” It is not identifying this as ‘”work” or “office,” despite the fact that working with your kids next to you is the very common reality for many families during this time.”


The algorithm of evolutionary progress of Civilizations seems to indicate that all Civilizations have a limited lifespan for their rise and fall, and mathematicians and statisticians are trying to create algorithms ,to calculate just how much longer our civilisation itself has left, before it falls.

“The collapse of complex human societies remains poorly understood and current theories fail to model important features of historical examples of collapse. Relationships among resources, capital, waste, and production form the basis for an ecological model of collapse in which production fails to meet maintenance requirements for existing capital. Societies facing such crises after having depleted essential resources risk catabolic collapse, a self-reinforcing cycle of contraction converting most capital to waste. This model allows key features of historical examples of collapse to be accounted for, and suggests parallels between successional processes in nonhuman ecosystems and collapse phenomena in human societies.”

Neuralink as a solution to the failings of A.I. and the Dangers it may present to Humanity.

However, Elon Musk’s Neuralink, seems to be the answer, a very ‘Cyberpunk’ solution, to the dangers of the rise of A.I. and Robotics, and Androids.

The study of the state of Existential Risk is an important study for Humanity to focus o, as we are in my belief, truly in danger of extinction due to Catabolic Collapse

Apart from the Mythical Deluge,  whose truth is argued to this day, we have had 25 scientifically accepted mass extinction events on earth, since life began (not including this 26th current one which is happening to animals because of human interference with nature). Apart from the Current Holocene Extinction, i believe perhaps the flood was the last cataclysm. Before this we had the three Quaternary Mass Extinction Events, 640,000, 74,000, and 13,000 years ago, which may indeed also be one of the possible times from which the Myth of the Deluge originated. be it the Vedic Manu Myth or the Frostgiant Vidgelmir, or the Egyptian Setmet.. the Myth reoccurs again and again

This would imply that Civilisation had already previously developed enough to tell the story, and for the story to be transported across aeons, surviving the rise and fall of religions and empires, remaining contained within each culture and religion’s sacred texts, as a Myth which reflects an actual event.

As in biographical movies, most grimoires and recorded works are ‘works based on real events, which have fictional content to assist the telling of the story according to the current times’ My below podcast talks about the role of Myths in surviving cataclysms, and their purpose as a method of transmitting knowledge of the past.

Whereas empires and religions don’t survive, but the Myths contained within their literature and folk beliefs do, and the stories are told from generation to generation, slowly distorting like the game of Chinese Whispers, but with the core essence of the Truth remaining intact within each version of the myth.

, which is the only one we have recorded, and was about perhaps 5000 – 12000 years ago, before which we know little about Human Life, except from mythologies.

The Chaldean Mythology says Xisuthrus was warned of a coming flood by the god Chronos, who ordered him to build a boat in which to carry family, friends, and two of every kind of animal. Birds were used to find land…

Hihking; The Chinese classic Great Flood of Gun Yu record details one family survived a great flood by gathering their sons and sons’ wives together in a large boat, whereupon they repopulated the earth afterwards. Birds were used to find land.

Babylonia; Epic of Gilgamesh – The god Ea warned Utnapishtim of the imminent destruction of the earth; the ark built was cube-shaped, and held his family, friends, and all animals, Birds were used to find Land.

Assyria; King Ashurbanipal, who lived in the seventh century B.C., recorded, “I have read intricate tablets inscribed with obscure Sumerian or Akkadian…inscriptions on stone from before the Flood.” Birds were used to find land.

Sumer; Eridu Genesis: the god Enki warns Ziudsura to build a large boat due to the coming destruction of the earth. After a flood lasting seven days, Ziudsura sacrifices to the gods. (untranslated if birds were used or not to find land).

Greek Myth; Deucalion and Pyrrha were warned by Prometheus about the flood and told to build a chest; they survived when the chest landed on a high mountain – animals were involved in the exodus.

The Myth of Deucalion and Pyrrha, Niccolò Giolfino, 1550
Deucalion constructs an ark for him and his wife, Pyrrha. They then sail to Mount Parnassus, upon arriving to the mountain top, they solicit permission to recreate the human race. They were subsequently ordered to cast behind them the bones of their mother. Deucalion and Pyrrha interpreted their message to throw stones on the mountain or mother earth. Deucalion’s stones became male children and Pyrrha’s female.

African Masai; God resolved to destroy mankind, as the people were sinful. God commanded Tumbainot, the only righteous man, to build an ark and enter it with his two wives, six sons and their wives, and some of animals of every sort. God caused a great flood, and all other men and beasts drowned. When the water receded the ark grounded and its occupants disembarked…..


The Choktaw People; The Great Spirit destroyed a corrupt and wicked human race and all life on earth, except a prophet who went in vain to warn the people to repent or die. The prophet survived by building a raft of sassafras logs… The Tamanakis Tribe; A man and woman escaped to the highest peak after being warned of a flood. Afterward, the tossed coconuts behind them, which became the next race of man.

Myths of the Flood Are Far Older Than the Bible (Time Magazine).

The below talk delves into more possibilities of the origins of the Deluge Myth, and how Myths seems to survive empires, religions, cultures and cataclysms with mass extinctions.

Conclusive Thought;

As Rudyard Kipling Said “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.”

We have had 25 Quaternary Mass Extinction Events in the past on Earth, (26 including the current Mass Extinction of Animals caused by Human Influence on the Environment). Are Myths such as that of the deluge, more likely than historical documents to be transmitted across the extinctions, and resurgence of civilisation which follows each mass extinction?
