Shaping Society

In our journey through life, the paradigms and frameworks we adopt significantly impact our well-being, relationships, and overall life experience. In our last blog post, we explored how our paradigms “have us” by influencing us below the conscious threshold. In this blog post, we continue to explore two contrasting perspectives: the SalutoGenic and the Pathogenic paradigms. By examining the consequences and effects of each, including the concept of anti-fragility, we can gain insight into how these frameworks shape our lives and society as a whole.

And from new insights, we can make new choices.


Pathogenic Paradigm: Nurturing Disempowerment

The Pathogenic framework is rooted in a paradigm of victimhood and blame. It sees life’s challenges as external forces that act upon us, leaving us feeling helpless and disempowered. This perspective fosters a belief that our circumstances and environment are the sole determinants of our well-being. As a result, individuals operating within this framework often experience the following consequences:

    • Victim mentality: People adopting a pathogenic mindset tend to see themselves as victims of circumstances, perceiving life as an endless series of hardships. They believe that external factors control their happiness and success, leading to a sense of powerlessness and resignation.
    • Blame and finger-pointing: Rather than taking responsibility for their choices and actions, those influenced by the Pathogenic framework often assign blame to others or external factors. This attitude hampers personal growth and prevents meaningful change from occurring.
    • Lack of resilience: By perceiving challenges as insurmountable obstacles, individuals influenced by the Pathogenic framework struggle to develop resilience. They may become overwhelmed by setbacks and setbacks, hindered by a belief that they have no control over their circumstances.

Experiencing a lack of input towards our destiny leaves us battling, externally, that which thwarts self-control and self-determination, which can only come from within…

When living from a Pathogenic Paradigm, we cannot even see SalutoGenic mechanisms and systems that promote well-being. Why? Because a SalutoGenic perspective is counter-intuitive in a Pathogenic perspective.

A Pathogenic Paradigm turns the Hero’s Journey into the Martyr’s Journey.

All the remedies in this paradigm are anti-pathological — cut out cancer, poison the poisonous, destroy death — without a single thought of promoting life. In this paradigm, life is experienced as avoiding death and disease. We need to go beyond this paradigm! We can go beyond this paradigm by, at least, getting a taste of a new, life-affirming paradigm


A SalutoGenic Paradigm Cultivates Empowerment

In contrast to a Pathogenic perspective, the SalutoGenic perspective promotes personal empowerment, growth, and anti-fragility. It emphasizes the capacity to navigate life’s challenges and create positive outcomes, even in the face of stress and disorder. Adopting a SalutoGenic framework can have transformative effects on individuals and society, including:

    • Personal agency: The SalutoGenic framework fosters a sense of personal agency, empowering individuals to take control of their lives and make choices aligned with their well-being and Soul’s Purpose. It acknowledges that while external circumstances exist — because a SalutoGenic Paradigm transcends, yet includes, the Pathogenic one we have the power to respond and shape our own experiences by advancing Life, and not just by avoiding death.
    • Self-awareness and growth: By embracing the SalutoGenic perspective, individuals prioritize self-reflection and self-awareness. They recognize that personal growth is an ongoing journey, driven by a commitment to self-improvement and continuous learning. When you really think about it, we are the leading edge of evolution. A 13.8-billion-year-old process that promotes more & more complex life forms! When you know, you know. And it changes you.
    • Resilience and anti-fragility: Individuals that have adopted a SalutoGenic framework not only develop resilience but also cultivate anti-fragility. Anti-fragility, as described by Nassim Nicholas Taleb, goes beyond resilience by making gains out of stress and disorder. They view challenges as opportunities for growth and leverage them to thrive and adapt in the face of adversity.

This is the Hero’s Journey: promoting life & evolution while faced with challenges


We know a few Heroes… At The NHU, we produce them.


Societal Transformation: SalutoGenic vs. Pathogenic

When considering the broader impact of these frameworks on society, we can observe distinct patterns emerging. A society predominantly shaped by the Pathogenic framework tends to exhibit the following characteristics:

  • Blame culture: In a pathogenic-oriented society, blame and finger-pointing become prevalent, hindering cooperation and collaboration, and promoting fragmentation, instead of integration, which perpetuates a cycle of conflict and division, preventing progress and collective growth.
  • Dependency mindset: The Pathogenic framework fosters a culture of dependency and co-dependency where individuals rely on external authorities or systems or each other to solve their problems. This mindset undermines self-sufficiency and stifles individual and collective potential to move through the stage of dependency, to the stage of independence, to the stage of inter-dependence.

On the other hand, a society influenced by the SalutoGenic framework experiences:

  • Empowered individuals: In a SalutoGenic society, individuals are encouraged to take ownership of their lives and contribute to the well-being of others. This empowerment leads to a culture of proactive problem-solving, collaboration, and personal growth. It leads to moving through a stage of independence, to a stage of interdependence.
  • Resilient and anti-fragile communities: The SalutoGenic framework nurtures communities that not only bounce back from challenges but also thrive amidst chaos and uncertainty. These communities leverage adversity as an opportunity for innovation, adaptation, and positive transformation.
Which version of society do you want?

Once you become aware of the option for a paradigm shift, you’re faced with a choice….



The Emergence of the New Human: Embracing SalutoGenic Principles

At the forefront of the SalutoGenic framework lies the concept of the New Human—a visionary archetype embodying personal agency, anti-fragility, and conscious evolution. The New Human recognizes that our ability to create positive change begins with self-transformation.

As we awaken to the possibilities within ourselves, we become catalysts for societal transformation. By embracing SalutoGenic principles and fostering an environment conducive to personal growth, resilience, and anti-fragility, we can collectively create a future where the New Human thrives.

And, the New Human has access to the full set of emergent “inner organic technology” that awakens latent SalutoGenic Mechanisms in the human body, brain, and mind. The entire species is on the verge of a shift in paradigm from Pathogenic to SalutoGenic!  And we have the technology to promote emergence of The New Human!

Once you experience and cultivate your own inner organic technology and experience the SalutoGenic Mechanisms within you, and use it for direct, immediate, consistent transformation, you will see that Life is self-promoting, self-reinforcing, self-amplifying. In the face of the power of this SalutoGenic Life Force, anti-pathology is just a tiny fraction of what Life is about. Consistent experience of the SalutoGenic Mechanisms produces the desired paradigm shift.

And we have proof… We’ll save that for next time…



The frameworks we adopt profoundly influence our lives and society. Choosing the SalutoGenic framework empowers individuals to embrace personal agency, cultivate resilience and anti-fragility, and contribute to the creation of an empowered, collaborative, and harmonious society. By contrast, the Pathogenic framework perpetuates disempowerment, victimhood, and blame, hindering progress and collective well-being.

As we navigate our individual journeys, let us consciously choose the SalutoGenic perspective, unlock our potential for personal growth by unlocking our own inner organic technology and by awakening our own latent SalutoGenic Mechanisms, and become active participants in the emergence of the New Human. Together, we can shape a future where empowerment, resilience, and anti-fragility are guiding principles, fostering a society that thrives in the face of challenges and embraces the transformative possibilities within us all.

Remember, the choice is ours to make. Will we embrace the SalutoGenic framework and co-create a better world, or will we continue to perpetuate the limitations of the Pathogenic perspective? The power lies within us to shape our lives and society for the benefit of all.



PraxisAletheia: towards a new paradigm

In the next blog post (Part 3), we’ll explore the activation energy needed for a paradigm shift! It’s extremely exciting to know that making this shift is not merely a cognitive process, although cognition is involved.  It’s not like making decisions in the absence of evidence. Once you activate SalutoGenic Mechanisms, you’ll at least scratch the surface of what’s possible, and HOPEFULLY, you’ll make ongoing choices for Life, for SalutoGenesis, and not just avoiding death via anti-pathology. You can have direct experience of the consequences of adopting each paradigm and how it plays out at The New Human University and in our training programs.
