Humanity Awareness is the first worldview that is truly systemic and integral in nature. It takes decision-making to a new level—it looks at the big picture considering the whole rather than the parts—it focuses on the needs of our global society. It represents a major shift in consciousness from “What in it for me?” to “What’s best for the common good?”
Unlike previous worldviews, Humanity Awareness understands the “verticality” of societal development—the evolutionary perspective. People operating from the first six worldviews are unable to step into the shoes of those operating from other worldviews: they look at the world through the myopic beliefs of their own worldview. They are unable to embrace the concept of cultural evolution because they live in societal flatland—they look out at the world and judge it from their worldview.
People operating from the worldview of Humanity Awareness see other worldviews not through the lens of competing beliefs structures but through the lens of alternative value priorities. They see people, communities and nations at different stages of psychological development. Each stage of development has different needs and therefore different value priorities. As the needs of people, communities and nations are met at one stage of psychological development, they naturally evolve to the next stage of development. If their needs are not met, they will not advance: they may even regress.
The principal value priority of people operating from the worldview of Humanity Awareness is to create a world where everyone can thrive.
