Rule Of Dwindling Importance

The rule of dwindling mutual importance with increasing evolutionary distance states that the greater the evolutionary distance between master and slave fauceirs the more negligible its mutual impact.


The greater the evolutionary distance the fewer sub-fauceirs are shared and therefore the fewer sub-fauceirs can interact and mutually exchange information.


  1. The first screen writing software imitated typewriter as much as possible. Electronic communications systems such as twitter came significantly later.
  2. The hierarchy of social rules show that legislation is less dependent on biological fauceirs than is religion.
  3. An ancient ruler who maintained personal contact to his people, could be influenced by those people more directly than modern democratic rules, who are mostly immune to their people. See also decontectulization.

Evolutionary Distance

Evolutionary Distance is the difference in evolutionary levels. Evolutionary levels can only be measured if evolutionary progress is assumed, so the determination of evolutionary distance requires measurement of evolutionary progress.


By contrast, many evolutionary biologists who deny progress measure evolutionary distance only by the extend of DNA changes that can be measured statistically. However many evolutionary rules outlined here on these pages cannot be applied without accepting evolutionary progress.

The rule of dwindling influence with increasing evolutionary distance belongs to those rules.

Friedrich August von Hayek

Friedrich August von Hayek (1899-1992) is an Austrian economist.

Friedrich August von Hayek

His contribution to fauceir theory is twofold.

  1. He wholeheartedly supported liberalism and by developing arguments he discovered that liberty and freedom are prerequisites for social progress.
  2. He discovered similar evolutionary rules in a social fauceir.

Hayek On Cultural Evolution

How F.A.v. Hayek described social evolution is shown in this video.

Hayek can be considered kind of a Vordenker of fauceir theory. His view that social rules, evolve by group selection, is pure fauceir theory applied. The group of human individuals is nothing else but the fauceir in his example.

Still Hayek's concept fails to embrace all aspects of social evolution. As social groups are only one of a myriad of social fauceirs, there is more to social evolution than just competition of social groups.

  1. Although, as Hayek correctly stated, social rules such a morality are not based on rational considerations, they still have a purpose that is rationally explicable and evolved driven by rationality.
  2. Only fauceir theory can explain the interplay between those social rules and other fauceirs, such biological traits (hormones and behavioral patterns), climate, and geographical factors, to name only a few.
  3. Next, fauceir theory can propose a scale by which social rules and social progress can be estimated.
