Every human being makes decisions about how to get their needs met based on their worldview. In addition to having a worldview, every human being lives inside a worldview—the worldview of the community or nation to which they belong. As long as your personal worldview is closely aligned with the worldview of your community/nation you will feel a sense of alignment and inclusion—a sense of belonging. If your worldview does not align with the worldview of your community/nation you may feel a sense of exclusion.

Until recent times worldviews have been slow to evolve. The worldview of Clan Awareness began with the arrival of Homo sapiens around 200,000–300,000 years ago and was the dominant worldview until Tribe Awareness emerged around12,000 years ago. Tribe Awareness was the dominant worldview for around 6,500 years until State Awareness emerged about 5,500 years ago. State Awareness was the dominant worldview for around 3,700 years until Nation Awareness emerged about 1,800 years ago. Nation Awareness was the dominant worldview for around 1,300 years until Wealth Awareness emerged about 500 years ago. The worldview of People Awareness began to emerge about 200 years ago and the worldview of Humanity Awareness began to emerge about 60 years ago. The principal focus of the seven worldviews and the timeline of their emergence are shown in the following Table.

Focus and timeline of the emergence of new worldviews

Currently there are no nations where the worldview of Humanity Awareness is dominant. There are nine nations where the worldview of People Awareness is dominant, seven nations where the worldview of Wealth Awareness is dominant and 23 nations where the worldview of Nation Awareness is dominant. State Awareness is the dominant worldview if all other nations.

There are three levels of State Awareness. The main difference between the levels of State Awareness is the influence of the worldview of Tribe Awareness. In State Awareness 1 there is no influence of the worldview of Tribe Awareness. In State Awareness 2 there is a moderate influence of the worldview of Tribe Awareness. In State Awareness 3 there is a strong influence of the worldview of Tribe Awareness. Currently there are around 30 nations operating from the worldview of State Awareness 1, 40 operating from the worldview of State Awareness 2 and 30 operating from the worldview of State Awareness 3. To find out which worldviews are dominant in each nation consult the Atlas of Consciousness and GCI Scores for Nations.

In democratic regimes, the worldview of the collective—the community or nation—reflects the worldview of the majority. This worldview dictates the way in which the community or nation is governed—the governance structures, policies, systems and procedures. Differing worldviews are tolerated in democratic regimes to the extent they do not break the law. Worldviews evolve or regress in democratic regimes when the conditions experienced by majority of the population are no longer tolerable—when a significant mass of population cannot get their needs met at the stage of psychological development they are at.

In hybrid and authoritarian regimes, the worldview of the collective—community or nation reflects the worldview of the leader. Worldviews evolve or regress in authoritarian regimes when the leader or the elites cannot get their needs met.

When a significant proportion of the population in either a democratic or autocratic regime begins to operate from a higher order worldview than the community or nation, there will be mounting societal pressure for the community or nation to shift to a higher order worldview. This mounting pressure, which shows up as social unrest, is a sign that certain segments of the community or nation are not getting their needs met.

All nations operating from the worldview of People Awareness and the worldview of Wealth Awareness, except Belgium are full democracies. Belgium is a flawed democracy. Six nations operating from the worldview of Nation Awareness are full democracies, thirteen are flawed democracies and three are hybrid regimes. Most nations operating from State Awareness 1 are flawed democracies. Most nations operating from State Awareness 2 are Hybrid regimes, and most nations operating from State Awareness 3 are authoritarian regimes.

For information on the different types of regime – full democracies, flawed democracies, etc. please consult the Economic Intelligence Unit’s Democracy Index.

Seven stages of societal development (7SSD)
Since the arrival of Homo sapiens on the evolutionary scene 200,000 years ago, six worldviews have emerged. Each worldwide evolved in response to changes in social living conditions, and changes in social living conditions were triggered by changes in collective human psychological development. Each new stage of collective human psychological development was accompanied by a shift in collective identity and an expansion of conscious awareness. This course describes the characteristics of the six existing worldviews and lays out a vision of what the next worldview (Humanity Awareness) will look like.
What You Will Learn

Info Course
This E-Info Course sets forth a comprehensive methodology for measuring and comparing the comparative level of the well-being of nations. It presents the results of these measurements for 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2019. The comparative level of well-being is measured using seventeen global indicators. By adding together the scores for the seventeen indicators it is possible to calculate a total score for a nation. This score is referred to as the Global Consciousness Indicator (GCI) of the nation.
What You Will Learn
• The composition of the seventeen indicators that make up the GCI
• How the overall level of well-being is changing in the world
• How the level of well-being is changing in each of the world's regions
• How the level of well-being is changing in the European Union
• The top-ten nations for well-being

    Info Course
    The purpose of this global initiative is to co-create a world where all human beings and all living creatures can thrive. Since the arrival of Homo sapiens on the evolutionary scene 200,000 years ago, six worldviews have emerged. Each worldwide came about in response to changes in social living conditions, which in turn were triggered by changes in collective human psychological development. The worldview of Humanity Awareness, which is now emerging, represents the seventh worldview. The survival of our species is dependent on the adoption of this worldview.
    What You Will Learn
    • The fundamental principles of Humanity Awareness
    • The underlying cosmology of Humanity Awareness
    • The values that lie at the heart of Humanity Awareness
    • The implications of Humanity Awareness on human well-being
    • How humanity awareness will show up in the different sectors of society
