Universe 25—The Utopia of Collapse

If you think you’re in control think again

“Universe 25″—An experiment. “Population peaked at 2,200 mice and thereafter exhibited a variety of abnormal, often destructive, behaviors including refusal to engage in courtship, females abandoning their young. By the 600th day, the population was on its way to extinction. Though physically able to reproduce, the mice had lost the social skills required to mate.

“Despite (or perhaps because) their every need was being catered for, mothers would abandon their young or merely just forget about them entirely, leaving them to fend for themselves. The mother mice also became aggressive towards trespassers to their nests, with males that would normally fill this role banished to other parts of the utopia. This aggression spilled over, and the mothers would regularly kill their young. Infant mortality in some territories of the utopia reached 90 percent”.

“The population peaked at 2,200 – short of the actual 3,000-mouse capacity of the “universe” – and from there came the decline. Many of the mice weren’t interested in breeding and retired to the upper decks of the enclosure, while the others formed into violent gangs below, which would regularly attack and cannibalize other groups as well as their own. The low birth rate and high infant mortality combined with the violence, and soon the entire colony was extinct. During the mousepocalypse, food remained ample, and their every need completely met”.

No social program or religion can thwart the collapse—it can only enhance it. The best thing is to do nothing, create hardships, or go to war. Anything short of that we are doomed.

  1. Vermin say to themselves “There is no Ceiling Mouse.” They are corrupt and commit iniquity; not one of them chases what is good.


    1. After looking at all the parallels to modern living there is only one difference between the mice and the men. We aren’t dead yet.
      But looking at current trends it certainly mirrors the mice

  2. If we locked 2200 humans into an enclosed facility, they would go insane too. It might not happen as quixkly as in a mouse enclosure, our breeding systems are totally dissimilar, but I believe humans would not survive it. But I doubt it would be for the same reasons. Mice act on instincts. They were inbreeding, and they were feeling pressures human could never understand. I do not agree with mouse experimentation. There is nothing natural about it. If this study could take place in the wild, results would have been much different.
    Meanwhile, Jim, “The best thing is … to go to war”? This is an option humans often take, but it never solves anything — especially for the loser!


    1. “Mice act on instincts”, while humans believe they can think and reason around their instincts, which they in fact, can’t. In spite of all our efforts, todays mating schemes, the resignation of young men, and the refusal of women to mate for pregnancy, the terminating of the unborn, the alpha leaders and their tendencies to exert violence and manipulation, all mirrors the mouse population.
      Of course our cycles are longer but it is where we are today.
      All happening in a time of abundance.

      1. The key word being “mirrors.” Mice cannot act like humans, and humans cannot act like mice. While there are similarities, they cannot predict between species. The differences are too great.


        1. It is a pattern of all living organisms. The difference is we have the illusion that we can outsmart it. If that were the case American and Canadian societies would not be mimicking mice.


          1. Mirroring. Mimicking. Words thay implying sameness, but never achieving it. Especially when you add the fact the mice have no choice in being inside an experiment. Humans, for the most part, are free to come and go.

        2. I think the similarities is why the study is so interesting. No … mice are not humans and vice-versa. But it seems to me the experiment has enough homologies to human behavior that it has validity.
