Our human “advances” have largely resulted from development of our speech-based mind, but the essence and truth of life comes to us from our vision-based mind. Human groupings and Civilizations are in a Darwinian-inspired competition with one another to create proper balance of left brain success and right brain spiritual and life satisfaction.
This is the platform for clearly viewing human groupings and enables a clearer picture of human history……as well as current human civilizations, belief systems, and cultures.
Here are some additional building blocks for the picture platform:

Our earliest groupings and civilizations were largely governed by vision-based animal grouping models. These have evolved into newer civilizations and human groupings that include participation and/or leadership of our left brain “group-think”.
…and here are specific thoughts about the status of our left and right minds in current civilizations:
