“Uncovering the Secret Societies: An Anthropological Investigation into the Possibility of Psychohistory.”

I asked Open AI Chat to generate a title

with all this information.. Let us look at this through the eyes of an anthropologist.. What would be the signs that our civilization had psychohistory

As an anthropologist, the signs that a civilization had developed psychohistory would likely include:

  1. Evidence of advanced mathematical and statistical models being used to predict and analyze large-scale human behavior and events.
  2. The presence of a comprehensive understanding of human behavior and its impact on society, culture, and the economy.
  3. The widespread use of this understanding in decision-making at the individual, group, and societal levels.
  4. The ability to accurately predict and shape the future of the civilization based on this understanding.
  5. A lack of major disruptive events and the presence of stability and predictability in the civilization’s future.
  6. The presence of institutions and systems designed to collect, analyze, and utilize data on human behavior and its impact on society.
  7. The widespread use of psychohistory in education, research, and other intellectual pursuits.
  8. Evidence of widespread agreement among experts and the general population on the validity and usefulness of psychohistory.

now if it was hidden like a secret society

If psychohistory were being used as a secret society, it may be difficult to detect from the outside. Some signs that it could be being used covertly might include:

  • A lack of transparency or openness in decision-making processes that affect the larger society.
  • Unexpected or seemingly inexplicable events or outcomes that have widespread impact.
  • A concentration of power and influence in the hands of a small group or elite.
  • Evidence of manipulation or manipulation of data, information, or historical records.
  • A pervasive sense of manipulation or control over the course of events and the direction of society.

Of course, these signs could also indicate other things, and it may not be possible to know for sure if psychohistory is being used without direct access to the inner workings of the secret society.

A while back I did write a story

on the use of psycho history by various organizations

and the heroes of the story found it and got it into safer hands

I have not set points to ask so I an

now this was interesting it coded parts of the response

you have the same history of warfare available.. the basic points of all of warfare in human history. .What would a histprian tell me over the similar points all wars have in common in alist and then what would his list of differences in the wars look like.. the outliers

A historian studying the history of warfare would likely identify the following common factors among wars:

Motivation: Wars are often driven by political, economic, or ideological motivations, such as the desire to expand territory, control resources, or spread a particular ideology.

Resources: Wars require resources, including manpower, weapons, and supplies, to be fought.

Strategy: Wars typically involve the development of strategies for achieving specific goals and overcoming obstacles.

Tactics: Wars involve the use of specific tactics to achieve the objectives set out in the strategy, such as siege warfare, guerrilla warfare, or conventional battles.

The historian’s list of differences or outliers in wars might include:

Technology: Advances in technology, such as the development of new weapons or communication technologies, can impact the way wars are fought.

Location: The geography and environment of a conflict can impact the strategies and tactics used in a war.

Culture: Cultural differences, such as religious beliefs or social norms, can impact the motivations and strategies of different groups involved in a conflict.

Political Systems: The political systems and forms of government in different societies can impact the ways in which wars are fought and resolved.

Examples of wars that might be considered outliers or different due to one or more of these factors include:

The American Civil War – This war was unique in part due to the technological innovations that were introduced, such as the use of railroads and telegraphs.

The Vietnam War – This conflict was influenced by the unique geography and environment of the region, as well as the cultural differences between the North and South Vietnamese.

The Persian Wars – This series of wars was shaped in part by the differences in political systems and forms of government between the Persian Empire and the Greek city-states.

whith these points.. what would a psychohistorical war look like from and anthropologist reviewing the era

From an anthropologist’s perspective, a psychohistorical war would likely have the following characteristics:

Common Points:

  1. Ideological Differences: Psychohistorical wars would likely be rooted in ideological differences between groups, such as differences in beliefs, values, or political systems.
  2. Power Struggles: There would likely be a power struggle between different groups, as they compete for control, resources, and influence.
  3. Resources and Strategic Interests: The war would likely be fought over resources, strategic interests, and geopolitical advantage.
  4. Mobilization of Resources: Both sides would likely mobilize resources, including manpower, weaponry, and material support, to support their war effort.


  1. Predictive Outcome: A psychohistorical war would likely have a highly predictable outcome, as the actions and motivations of the participants would be well understood and accounted for by the psychohistorian.
  2. Lack of Surprise: Unlike traditional wars, there would likely be little room for surprise, as the psychohistorian would have accounted for all possible variables and outcomes.
  3. More Efficient Use of Resources: The war would likely be fought with more efficiency and less waste, as the psychohistorian would have determined the most effective use of resources to achieve the desired outcome.
  4. Greater Control over the Outcome: The psychohistorian would likely have greater control over the outcome of the war, as they would be able to direct the actions of the participants to ensure the desired outcome is achieved.

now if it was between two psychohistorian factions

As a language model AI, I do not have personal opinions, but I can provide some possible observations that an anthropologist might make regarding a hypothetical conflict between two psychohistorian factions.

  • Analysis of the underlying motivations and goals of each faction: An anthropologist may seek to understand what each faction wants to achieve and what they believe they are fighting for. This could include looking at the ideology, political beliefs, economic interests, and cultural values of each faction.
  • Examination of the methods used by each faction: An anthropologist may examine the tactics and strategies used by each faction in order to understand their approach to the conflict. They may look at the weapons used, the methods of communication, the mobilization of resources, and the recruitment and training of soldiers.
  • Analysis of the impact on civilians and the wider society: An anthropologist may also consider the impact of the conflict on civilians and the wider society. They may look at the displacement of populations, the destruction of infrastructure, the effects on the economy and society, and the long-term consequences of the conflict.
  • Study of the role of technology and innovation: As psychohistorian factions may have access to advanced technologies and knowledge, an anthropologist may examine the role of technology and innovation in the conflict, and how it may have influenced the outcome.
  • Examination of the resolution and aftermath of the conflict: Finally, an anthropologist may examine the resolution of the conflict and the aftermath. They may look at the terms of peace, the rebuilding and recovery process, and the lessons learned from the conflict.

this was an interesting set of points but I have to try one last thing


now seeing as how our archeologist, she grew up on Sherloch holmes.. And his famous line… What was that line

The famous line that Sherlock Holmes often used is “When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”


Ok.. She would have this as a motto as she looked at all of world history since Issiac asimov created the story Psychohistory was in till now.. Now, treating this as a case.. What groups would she have as suspects and what points match the criteria she is looking for

As an anthropologist with a background in Sherlock Holmes and the concept of psychohistory, the first step in her investigation would likely be to identify groups that have had a significant impact on world history and could potentially possess psychohistorical knowledge and technology. She might look for evidence of these groups’ activities and influence across multiple regions, cultures, and historical periods, as well as their ability to maintain secrecy and operate covertly. Some possible groups that she might consider as suspects in her investigation could include:

  1. Secret societies and covert organizations, such as Freemasons, Illuminati, or secret government agencies.
  2. Wealthy and powerful families or dynasties, who may have access to advanced knowledge and technology, as well as the resources to shape world events.
  3. Mystical or religious groups, such as alchemists, magicians, or spiritualist organizations, who may possess hidden knowledge and advanced technology that is not widely understood.
  4. Scientific and technological organizations, such as research institutions or high-tech companies, who may have access to advanced technology and knowledge that is not widely available to the general public.
  5. Military and intelligence organizations, such as special forces units or intelligence agencies, who may have access to advanced technology and knowledge, as well as the resources and training to operate covertly and influence world events.

It’s important to note that these are simply possibilities, and the actual evidence of a group possessing psychohistory may look very different in reality. The anthropologist would have to consider a range of factors, including political, economic, and cultural factors, as well as historical context and the motivations of the groups in question, in order to determine which groups are most likely to have been in possession of psychohistory.

this last part is very interesting

I am putting it on pause here because well it was pulling teeth for this

so I asked Dall-e a question over the above

I just have to pause

God damn

this was AI generated with prompting

I did have to break down points

So let me know what you think?
