Collective consciousness is one of the Plato aspects of this ideology.
When Plato is mentioned, this is to say that the concept or principle is focused on perfection or the long term goal. Plato’s government was focused on creating a blueprint for what an ideal society would be. When Aristotle is mentioned, that is to say, that the concept or principle is focused on improvement of the policy or society already in place.
Social reform is one of the Aristotle aspects of this ideology.
Collective consciousness is impossible, but an enlightenment that is close to the size of the human species is possible. When this is said, we mean that 50% is probably a substantial goal. With 50% of the Human species being “converted” to a ‘collective consciousness’ like thinking, the road is much easier from there on.
More can be achieved when there is a collective consciousness within the human species. More focus would be put towards the progress of humanity instead of prioritizing selfishness such as profit. An example of this would be space exploration or invested research into new sources of energy such as fusion energy.
The gateway towards a type II civilization would be established at this point. The ultimate goal is for humanity to work together, which is not probable or possible. This is where real world issues such as cooperation are taken into account. Some communities, ethnicities, or cultures must live according to how they perceive life. Not every individual can be convinced, so it is not an option to simply “leave” these people behind.
The basis of an intellectual developmentist world would be cooperation but under circumstances. A universal political monopoly would be established but not to the extent where nation sovereignty ceases to exist. No. Far from this in fact. Only a small portion, if any, would be sacrificed. This would help us as a civilization work with and help each other. At the same time, the fact that it is impossible for humanity as a whole to submit towards full cooperation is taken into account. Countries still maintain a substantial amount of sovereignty even though there is a universal political monopoly in place.
