Why do some people see the world in one way while others see it from a totally opposite perspective? Were does the perceptual framework of finding two sides to every issue originate? What impact do conflicting opinions have on our social institutions and what result will the application of binary worldviews have on civilization?
The answers to these questions are important because our deeply seated differences come into play regarding a myriad of highly important issues that impact everyone. Understanding the sociopolitical psychology behind worldview development is fundamental because the assumptions and decisions that are applied to society as a result of blind perceptions have long lasting and significant ramifications.
History is full of examples of great civilizations that have come and gone because the humans that enjoyed their fruits and were entrusted to their survival were unaware of their fragility. One of the primary reasons for the collapse of great societies has been the influence of blind perceptions that were applied to the maintenance of civilization.
