Just as atomic evolution proceeds, through man, from
A proton- and/or atomic-particle Kingdom to
An atomic-wavicle Church, and then (following
the rise of a neutron-wavicle Church) from
A neutron- and/or electron-particle State to
An electron-wavicle Centre,
So class evolution mirrors a similar progression,
Beginning with the proton- and/or atomic-particle
Aristocracy/peasantry, continuing with
The atomic-wavicle plutocracy/workers, beginning afresh
With the neutron- and/or electron-particle
Bureaucracy/proletariat, and culminating with
The electron-wavicle meritocracy/superfolk.
During the proton and atomic stages of evolution,
The minority classes - namely aristocracy
And plutocracy - exploit the majority classes
Of the peasantry and workers.
During the neutron and/or electron
Stages of evolution, however, the majority classes -
Namely proletariat and superfolk - are served
By the minority classes
Of the bureaucracy and meritocracy.
An overlap from one class-stage to another
Does of course obtain, though
The emergence of a third class-stage
Renders the first untenable.
The distinction, furthermore,
Between particle and wavicle stages
Is in regard to manual and intellectual work,
As befitting their respective natures.
Thus whereas the peasantry and proletariat
Are both engaged, according to
Their particle biases, in manual work
(the first naturally, through toil in fields,
the second artificially, through toil in factories),
The workers and superfolk, by contrast,
Are engaged, according to their wavicle biases, in
Brain work (the former naturally,
through clerical work, the latter supernaturally,
through the use, in research, of computers,
calculators, cassette recorders, and so on).
From field to factory, and from office to laboratory.
