New World Philosophy for Everyone

IEC Conference: 2023

I would like to present New World Philosophy for Everyone, which is a philosophical “product”. As such it can be disseminated to the population.

Spiral Dynamics, Ego Development Theory (SCG)  and other social and humanistic theories were assembled together into a meta-theory that describes the developmental model, which performs the developmental process.

Global Awakening is the process of liberation which depends a lot on the socio-cultural environment. Human development is about vertical growth, which depends on the horizontal dimension (arrested – closed – open). People are closed when their basic psychological needs are not fulfilled. In this case, they tend to develop a victim mentality – frustrations, poor self-regulation, extrinsic motivation and unobjective explanations of reality (conspirative thinking). Under favorable living conditions (democracy, freedom, emancipation) with basic psychological needs (culturally) supportive environment, the opposite happens. People become highly trustful, selfless and humanistically oriented. I call this phenomenon culture of responsibility – possibly the only way to global awakening 2.0.

CIGOJ, David


I’m David Cigoj, 53, Ph.D. student of sociology at SASS Nova Gorica, Slovenia, tour manager, author and publicist.

Firstly for two years, I worked as a journalist for the biggest Slovenian newspaper Delo. Among others, I wrote an article about Italian and German national mentality.

Since 2000 I’ve been working as a tour manager guiding tours in the English Language across Europe, and some Asian countries. I’ve been fascinated by cultural differences and I did my best to adjust my communication and behavior to my British tourists. This led me to a series of insights and revelations.

In the year 2020 with the support of the Scientific and research institute of the Slovenian Academy of Science and Arts, I published a book in the Slovenian language titled Consciousness development. In August 2022 I published the second extended version with around 25% more content.

In January or February 2023 I’m planning to publish the English version of my book titled New World Philosophy for Everyone. I put integral theory into a wider context. It is also about a special project – it is practically about Planetary Awakening 2.0. in action. Please check the website for more details.
