Phi Beta Iota: Coincident with the emergence of the Collective Intelligence and Open Everything movements, and despite the enormous fragmentation of human knowledge by an academy that has lost sight of the importance of multi-disciplinary or “holistic” human intelligence, the field of Evolutionary Psychology is maturing rapidly while also branching to connect to Neuroscience.  On the fringe, Cyber-Idiocy is a growth industry, as the mandarins of the past strive to achieve “Full-Spectrum Dominance” not realizing that all they are doing is accelerating push-back from an increasingly self-aware humanity that cannot be repressed.
