There is a lot of study and investigation in the psychological and social sciences of the diverse cultures on planet Earth and the resolution of conflicts which are produced by these differences. The experts divide these cultures by country according to whether preference is given to individualism or to collectivism. Lots of studies have been made on this subject considering the 189 nations and even more numerous cultures we have on this planet.
Well, I'm raising also the following question to be studied, namely the birth of a global culture. In a conference on the subject I have said to the speaker that I was born in a culture, the French culture, where everything I was taught was related to France, the great literature of France, the history of France, the geography of France, the political system of France, her art, etc. But then one day the Germans marched in and told us all this was lies, that France was a decadent country and then we had to learn the German culture, its literature, its victories, its history, its geography, its politics, etc. and there was no talk of conflict resolution.
In each case the recommendation was to take a gun and to shoot on the other side, killing people of the other culture. When the war was over I joined the United Nations, having equipped myself with a Doctorate of Law and I was told in the US that law is principally a European, French culture and that the new culture was economics. So I went to Columbia University to get a degree in economics.
Well, the only culture which I found satisfactory was the culture emerging in the United Nations, a global culture, humanism everywhere, human rights, peace, education, health, help to the handicapped, an endless list of improving the human condition. And in that culture most problems were resolved by having nations work together.

Chapter 3 - Of Consciousness
I will never cease to be astonished by my fate: endlessly I discover that I can be greater than I was. Life offers endless possibilities for extension. Could it be true even after death? What a big revelation of increased consciousness that would be!*
