TETRASOPHY: AWARENESS OF THE EARTH AND THE COSMOS

Atawallpa Oviedo Freire

The human being has always realized that his life depends on the sun, that light is the source of his existence and of his prolongation on earth. Under this understanding, he has organized all its life forms around him, based on his awareness that the «father sun» was the center of everything (heliocentrism or solar vitalism). The peoples of Amerindia (America) have known for at least 2,000 years that the Earth revolves around the sun and that this planet is round, as has been amply demonstrated by serious scholars of pre-Columbian cultures.

Byung Chul Han is wrong

Cooperation and solidarity, between Slavoj Zizek and Byung Chul Han

Atawallpa Oviedo Freire

500 years ago, together with the European conquerors, various viruses, such as smallpox and measles, reached Abya Yala (Amerindia), which according to most scholars killed around 55 million people across the continent. Now, with the coronavirus we can imagine the magnitude of such ethnocide. Only the few who became immunized survived – as happened in Eurasia with these same viruses and with many others.

A group of scientists from University College London (United Kingdom) led by Alexander Koch, in their article published in Quaternary Science Reviews, point out that the population existing in America before the first contact with Europeans in 1492 was around 60 million people (approximately 10% of the world population). They then analyzed how those numbers changed in the following decades due to the devastation caused by introduced diseases (smallpox, measles, etc.), wars, slavery and social collapse, concluding that the population fell to just 5 or 6 million in a hundred year period.

Cooperation and solidarity, between Slavoj Zizek and Byung Chul Han

By Atawallpa Oviedo Freire

The most commonly heard words in the world today, from presidents, high world authorities, millionaires, philosophers, personalities, to the simplest and poorest human beings are: cooperation, solidarity, union, coordination, support, organization, collaboration, responsibility, discipline, conscience, community, common.

The question that arises is: After the coronavirus is controlled or in progress: will it be possible to build a world within the categories and principles noted above? What would that system be like? What would be the driving force of this new lifestyle? Perhaps it has already existed before and must be polished. Will the coronavirus mark a “before and after”?
