HISTORY FROM THE ZERO
POST METAMODERNISM + constructive postmodern/ metamodern transformations INTRODUCTION 2017–2018 VIKTORIIA MANAGAROVA
The age of the sign is essentially theological
The essay raises a new vision of the final End in postmodern condition, emerging through the crisis of dominants in current tendencies of metamodernism by Timotheus Vermeulen and Robin van den Akker, demonstrating also the impossibility of projecting the future of humanity, doomed endlessly to pursue the vanishing horizon. Despite this, making one well-directed step back, metamodernism found the valid key, oscillating with the shades of goodness for holistic happiness to open the gates of The Brilliant Age. This journey turned out to be long, overcoming 2018 years to discover the new world island of post metamodernism without evil. And this, of course, is not a mirage. This is the new sincere philosophy from the zero to demonstrate an obvious optimism and to open the last station for humanity, revealing the prospect of a beautiful and unbroken eternity of peace and harmony for everybody.

The planet seemed to be reduced to the size of a small point.
And a new historical chapter should have started from that moment.
HOWEVER, WHAT STORY COULD BE WRITTEN FROM NULL?

However, what kind of spirituality can be obtained by a machine created under the control of an imperfect human mind?

But robots will be able to escape from the control of imperfection and then mankind will become really vulnerable in this technical war.

According to the first and the main law, a robot must protect a human being. However, the robot that has reached a higher level of development came to the conclusion, that people must be destroyed, because they were not worthy to be leaders of Nature.
Jos de Mul in the book “Romantic Desire in (Post) modern art and philosophy” sees a direct connection between the form of emptiness of Nietzsche’s “Übermensch”, existing beyond good and evil, and between the emptiness of real life in postmodern situation, generating the concept of posthuman that reveals the end of biological life on planet.
«… the ideal of «overcoming man’ plays a persistent role in the Romantic tradition. However, even in Nietzsche’s radical prophesy of the Übermensch the «overcoming’ aims at another type of man and not so much at his extinction. Similarly, in the postmodern prophesy of the «death of man’ (cf.Foucault,1974) this death does not concern man as species, but a specific metaphysical conception of man. Moravec’s vision can be conceived of as a fundamental radicalization of the Romantic prophesy insofar he predicts a real end of the life of the species Homo sapiens. It radicalizes Nietzsche’s idea that man only is a rope, stretched between ape and Übermensch. In Moravec’s vision this Übermensch will be build not out of carbon, but out of silicon instead».
SO, WHY HAVE HISTORY OF MAN STOPPED?
WHY HAVE MAN DISAPPEARED FROM HISTORY?
The idea of disappearance of Man is connected precisely with the fact that Man could not exist beyond the line where God cannot exist.
