One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

Progress

We become suddenly irrational and stupid, pretending to be unaware of previous structures and formations that yielded better results. We reason that:

  1. Surely everything we are doing now is better, because we have already decided we have progressed and are superior to the best previous creations.
  2. Yet results are worse, showing constantly lower quality, so it must be due to some secret cause, such as oppression.
  3. No one likes oppression (so those who do it are evil and inhuman, worthy of scorn and hateful violence, even confiscation of their earnings) and oppression would surely cause things to be worse, so the cause of all these calamities must be a conspiracy of oppression.
  4. Our poor results have nothing to do with the structure all of our approach (the best possible) or the quality of the people performing it (the finest ever).
  5. Everything about our situation is the greatest possible ever and yet results are not as good as those achieved and sustained in the past until the era of progress.
  6. With more progress we'll have ever better results.
  7. This trajectory only becomes more perfect as we blindly go down an unknown path, rejecting the well known out of spite.
