Historical Paradigm Shifts: Feudalism, Capitalism & Informationalism
In order to clearly understand the forces coming into play in current and future paradigm shifts, it can be helpful to examine historical paradigm shifts. In the Futurica Trilogy provides just such an analysis. The authors show how the concept of God changes in the historical paradigm shifts from Feudalism to Capitalism. “In Feudal times, God was (in mobilistic terms) an assumed constant who’s existence was unquestionable…With the transition to Capitalism, the fixed structures which supported the concept of God collapsed…The authority of both Monarchy and Church rested ultimately upon the existence of something call ‘god’ with a capital G. God was the assumed constant and could therefore never be called into question under any circumstances. If doubt were allowed to spread, the whole power structure would have been in danger of imploding. As a result, of obstinate denials of any movement in the assumed constant and unwillingness to surrender the claims of religion, Atheism was elevated to the status of a new axiom and became an oppositional and effective tool for the acquisition of power by the developing Bourguoise.” In other words, power in the old paradigm rested upon certain assumed constants and the historical paradigm shifts to the new paradigm revealed these were not ‘immutable truth’ but merely assumed and when this was shown to be the case, power previously held by church and monarchy shifted elsewhere.
The authors speculate that Czar Nicholas might have been able to avoid the Bolshevik Revolution by denouncing the authority of the Russian Orthodox Church, but could not, as doing so would undermine the basis of his own legitimacy as ruler. Consequently, he became a scapegoat when power shifted away from church and monarch to capital (whether or not it resided in a Capitalist or Communist system).
Historical Paradigm Shifts: Power Transfer From Feudalism To Capitalism
In Feudalism power lay in the land. This was inherent and had no price tag. In Capitalism power lay in capital. When the historical paradigm shifts occurred, aristocracy was revalued in terms of capital and the moneyed Bourguoise were able to purchase and renovate the estates formerly held by the feudal power class. Indeed, for a while it made sense the two classes to intermarry, as one could contribute their noble name in exchange for the other contributing their money and thus increase the standing of both families for different reasons. Paradoxically, the legal preconditions for the ascendancy of the Bourgoise were created through the attempts of the Aristocracy to preserve itself through state protection of private fortunes.
Eventually, the Bourgoise rewrote history in a way that portrayed the aristocracy and church as quaint relics of the past which had inevitably collapsed due to the newly assumed innate superiority of their own class and its nation-state. To quote the authors, “Man became God, science his gospel, the nation-state his paradise and capital his holy instrument of power.”
Historical Paradigm Shifts: Power Transfer From Capitalism To Informationalism
True to form, a similar pattern of historical paradigm shifts is showing up in the current transition from Capitalism to Informationalism (Netocracy). It is the very attempts by the Bourgoise to preserve their capitalistic power by controlling copyright and patent through legislation and law enforcement that provide the Netocracy with the legal basis for assuming power.
Curiously enough, this resulted in Etatism or belief in the State, governed by democratically elected representatives as the current form of ‘divine right’ that was previously accorded to royalty. This was reinforced by the media, first in the form of newspapers and later as radio and television. While maintaining the appearance of freedom, these instruments of information dissemination were in fact, tightly controlled (at least in the beginning). As market forces came into play and the need to appeal to wider audiences became clear, media began to have a voice independent of the existing power structure. (An example of this was the British ‘pirate’ radio stations playing American rock and blues in stark contrast to the BBC playlists).
The media has become a power unto itself, usurping power from the State. This can be seen when television and movie stars come out for or against certain political decisions. Previously, this would have been unheard of. Nowadays the media assumes the role of keeping politicians in line. It has become quite conventional to assume that all politicians are corrupt and deplorable (whether they actually are or not). The problem is that in order to keep audiences engaged, the media must continue to create sensational scandals and has the side-effect of a cynical populace who sees no point in voting. What happened? The media quietly took control of the state. This explains quite a lot. A media star is now president; one that knew of the media’s need for drama and was expert at providing it, thus getting free coverage throughout the election.
Decision makers within the media are not elected officials. Consequently, it appears that if the media is literally running the show, it amounts to the death of democracy. Fortunately, the media networks are not the only channels available to people. The internet serves as an alternate channel. The problem is that most users are not fully conversant in the technology. With the transition to Informationalism, power is tied to technological mastery. It also appears that with informationalism, power is shifting from democracy to a plurarchy. What’s the difference? In democracy an individual is subject to the decisions of the group. In plurarchy, the individual is no longer subject to the whims of the group, but is largely self-determined and power comes with mastery.
Paradigm Shift: How Competing Models Of Reality Affect Our Lives
“Paradigm shift” actually means changing the model we use to understand something. (Paradigm means model or metaphor, so a paradigm shift amounts to a new model). Although we tend to use “paradigm shift” as a new way to interpret current events, the truth is that paradigm shifts have taken place in the past and with them shifts in the power structure. The Futurica Trilogy examines what a paradigm shift is in depth. It examines how technology is a driving force throughout history and goes on to show the impacts of Feudalism transitioning to Capitalism and then Informationalism. It shows the death of the State and the crisis of Democracy and the consequences of that. So let’s begin:
Paradigm Shift: Technology as the driving force of history
The Futurica Trilogy opens with the tale of a lone Japanese soldier on a remote island, discovered decades after World War II had ended, dutifully manning his post as if peace had never been declared. He was simply doing the best he knew how with the limited information at his disposal. The author shows how we encounter a paradigm shift similarly. We gain our understanding of “reality” based on models we invent to navigate through a world in which most of the information is beyond our scope, and thus limit our attention to what is most relevant to our lives. This becomes clear to people as they become educated, as the simplified explanations we learn in grade school are replaced with the more complex explanations we learn in high school and again in college, where we may discard our earlier understandings entirely in light of new technology or research.
Even so, we tend to perceive new things in terms of old understandings. Case in point: When we hear the word “computer” we think tend to think of a device which is composed of known technology: (Part car, part television, part typewriter). A computer could just as well be much more like a friend you talk to who shows you things on the inside of your sunglasses. Indeed, with the advent of Apple’s Siri and similar programs, the technology seems to be moving this direction.
This also raises the question of whether or not the latest technological gadget represents true change to the human experience or is instead business as usual in a shiny new wrapper. The focus of this and subsequent articles in this paradigm shift series is to examine how technology impacts how we model reality and how those models impact human experience in very real ways.
The Either/Or Nature Of A Paradigm Shift
There is one other curious aspect to a paradigm shift and that is the “either/or” or “one or the other” property. Just as the spinning dancer appears to be turning one direction and then, in the blink of an eye appears to spin the opposite direction, so it is with a paradigm shift. It either appears to be one way or the other, but not both simultaneously. This can be confusing for some people.

Next Up: The Paradigm Shift From Feudalism To Capitalism
We will examine an early paradigm shift and see how both the new and old paradigms compete for dominance even today.
Full UFO Disclosure
The time has come for full UFO disclosure. According to Newsweek, more than half of people accept the reality of extraterrestrial life regardless of denials from official sources. http://www.newsweek.com/most-people-believe-intelligent-aliens-exist-377965
So why has full UFO disclosure been kept a secret? Various reasons have been given, but ultimately it works out the the maxim, “Follow the money.” It turns out that reverse engineering extraterrestrial technology provides a distinct technological, military and economic edge for whoever is able to accomplish it. The question that remains is to what extent this has been accomplished. These and other questions will be answered:
Full UFO Disclosure 5-Day Online Conference
On April 19th through 24th, Portal To Ascension is hosting a 5 day online conference on full UFO disclosure with a panel of 25 top experts including Paul Hellyer, Kerry Cassidy, Brien Foerster, Tricia McCannon, Jaime Janover, Adam Apollo, Meg Benedicte, Shima Moore, Chireya Fox, Ken Rohla among others. Briefly, here is some of what they will cover as part of full UFO disclosure:
Full UFO Disclosure (Partial List of Presentations)
- Paul Hellyer: Mr. Hellyer’s preoccupation with full ufo disclosure at the moment is the world banking and financial system. He considers the present one, where private individuals have a monopoly on money creation that is all created as debt, and has to be paid with interest, as totally insane. Money is the gasoline of a modern economy and if there is no way of obtaining it other than to borrow it, the system is a dead end! Consequently Hellyer is recommending a massive infusion of government-created debt-free money to dilute the sea of debt in which the world economy is drowning. This would require the repeal of the Federal Reserve Act in the United States, and the reactivation of the Bank of Canada north of the border. The subject is rated as the most urgent facing the world today because it is a problem that has to be resolved before other problems, such as climate change and global warming, can be financed and resolved.
- Kerry Cassidy: Extraterrestrials Among Us is Kerry’s topic for full UFO disclosure. Kerry is a documentary filmmaker/investigative journalist and well known radio talk show host of Project Camelot Whistleblower Radio and Camelot TV broadcaster. Her website Project Camelot is a leader in the alternative media sector, with a Youtube channel that has millions of viewers worldwide and over 116,000 subscribers. She speaks at conferences around the world and has produced several highly regarded Camelot conferences with the trademark name “Awake and Aware” featuring key witnesses and researchers that are part of the Camelot history of interviews on full UFO disclosure.
- Brien Foerster: About 12,000 years ago there was a global cataclysmic event that appears to have erased human history up to that point. It could have been the strike by a comet, solar plasma bursts from the sun, eruption of energy from galactic center, or all of the above. All that remains of what appear to have been advanced civilizations from before 12,000 years ago are megalithic remains in such locations as Egypt, Lebanon, Peru and Bolivia, as well as Japan, India, Turkey and Greece. These works could not have been achieved without forms of advanced technology. And even famed Atlantis, brought to the world’s attention by Plato, and by his own calculation, was destroyed at this same time of about 12,000 years ago.
- Tricia McCannon: Ancient Atlantis – Tricia is an American mystic and the author of the beloved best selling books Dialogues With the Angels; Jesus: The Explosive Story of the 30 Lost Years and the Ancient Mystery Religions; and Return of the Divine Sophia: Healing the Earth through the Lost Wisdom Teachings of Jesus, Isis, and Mary Magdalene. As a Keynote Speaker, she speaks on a variety of subject from Awakening the Divine Feminine to the Lost Years and Secret Teachings of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. She also speaks about The Power of Faith, Angels and Extraterrestrials, Atlantis, Global Awakening, Earth Changes, full UFO disclosure, and the Hidden History of the Human Race.
Jamie Janover: Understanding the source of energy, matter and the fundamental forces are essential to understanding “free energy”. Join Jamie Janover as he summarizes the how and why everything in the universe is unified by a fundamental field of information from which everything emerges. Jamie has been taught by physicist Nassim Haramein to deliver presentations on his unified field theory as a representative of the Resonance Science Foundation.
- Adam Apollo: Starships, Species & Spirits: The Technological, Social & Spiritual Transformations inherent in becoming a Galactic Civilization. How are Starships built, and how do they work? What are the key technologies that make interstellar travel possible? Who are the Galactic species out there, and why are they interested in contacting us? How must we adapt to live compatibly with other species around the Galaxy? What underlies our capacity to make these changes on a personal and global level? What does Spirituality really have to do with Disclosure? Explore these questions and more with Adam Apollo in this session on developing Extraterrestrial Awareness with full UFO disclosure.
- Meg Benedicte: Exit the Matrix: Ascension Activation – The past 20 years Quantum Healer, Meg Benedicte, has developed the time-tested Ascension technique: Quantum AccessTM. Tapping into ancient Mystery School knowledge from past incarnations in Lemuria, Sirius and Zep Tepi Egypt, Meg will show you how to use sacred geometry and vortex energy to quickly unlock gravity, break the barrier between physical and spiritual realm, remove veils and blockages, open the chakra channel, and increase energy frequency to accelerate personal Ascension. Lecture includes ‘live’ Ascension Activations as part of full UFO disclosure.
- Shima Moore: 5D StarPortals: The Alchemy of Ancient Astrology & Stargates – Constructed on principles of sacred geometry, the Stargate is a physical as well as an etheric structure. It is an inter-dimensional portal that activates our DNA and our remembering of who we truly are. The Stargate is a conscious being who responds to each us individually, according to our openness and clarity of intention. Once activated, we are bathed in a palpable field of love, ever more receptive to various groups of beneficent higher-dimensional beings, eager to help us heal, grow, and evolve into our highest potential. Angels, Nature Divas, Ascended Masters, Star Families, and others frequently join us during these experiential “meditations.”
- Chireya Fox: Are You the Mini-Me of Source? – Author of “Fall In Love with the Beloved Within: Source Speaks” Chireya Fox will help us comprehend the vastness of our inner being, while giving us practical tools to step into that alignment which changes everything. In “Are You The Mini-Me of Source,” Chireya will help you understand how self love relates to manifestation power, and how comprehending your oneness with the universe leads to radical forgiveness, and the ability to embrace life like never before. Get ready to soar as this work ushers in a new possibility where the challenges of lack of self love meet the opportunity to grow beyond our wildest dreams.
- Ken Rohla: With the increase of severe threats to our health like genetically modified food, GMO biowarfare agents, geoengineering pollutants, nuclear fallout, scalar energy weapons, electromagnetic pollution, nanotechnology, and more, new more powerful antidotes are required to maintain health and happiness. As these threats have developed, so too have advanced solutions that are based on ancient knowledge and technologies as part of full UFO disclosure. Ken Rohla will discuss how a new class of energetically enhanced homeopathic remedies and energy technologies have emerged that have amazing healing properties that can neutralize radioactivity in the body, remove these new super toxins, regenerate cells, heal DNA damage, and even alter matter in the body!
