Social organism theories of the past have defined human societies as “biological organisms”, similar to animals or plants. This present work draws from the recent technological breakthroughs in both biology and astronomy to define the worldwide human society as a “multizoa organism”, i.e. an organism made of many animals. The paper then puts forth the idea that as a multizoa organism, human society is subject to some of the same biological processes that apply to other organisms, such as the natural cycles of growth, feeding and reproduction, the principles of evolution through natural selection, and the dangers of evolutionary pressures. Finally, it argues that war can be understood as a multizoa disease that decreases the chances of a society to survive in its environment and reproduce, thus providing a purely biological reasoning against the use of warfare.
