It is always good to see someone else attempting to understand the extent f the change that our newest generation is facing. We are seeing millennials as the transition away from the old form of human society, as the cultural structures collapse around us, with Omega/Z/Connected architecting new structures that will continue to evolve. As I’ve noted in other writings the pressures are not just the logarithmic rate of change but the tremendous lengthening of the tail through time. That is we are dealing with panic now among the most conservative and challenged portions of our population who in the US and some other places have managed to gain power exacerbating the dangers we already face. The complete incompetence of people from the past, as typified by Trump and his followers, dedicated to denial of everything around them produces a nearly complete breakdown of language and fact. Omegas may well lose all common reality with the aging portions of our population. This can only get worse, at least for a time, with the lengthening of life expectancy. The more we think about this the more complex it gets and that is an evolutionary failure of our species.
