Explaining what each of these means, based on my own interpretation.
Mostly doing this for my own entertainment. I enjoyed writing this out, you don't have to enjoy reading it. But maybe you will.
I’m gonna start by explaining the two axes of the graph, and then each quarter, so that similar concepts are grouped together. I’m also going to work outwards from the middle.
HYPERHUMAN / UNHUMAN. Basically, whether or not it indulges or scorns “human nature”, our baser impulses. An orgy would be more “hyperhuman”, playing your PS4 all day alone would be “unhuman”.
DECELERATION / ACCELERATION. You’re probably more familiar with this one. Basically, the speed at which society moves forward. The Amish would be more “decelerated” than normal human society.
