“The AQAL model is not just a theoretical construct but a practical tool for enhancing personal growth, social transformation, and our understanding of the world.”

All week we’ve reviewed Levels of thinking from the AQAL model (AQAL stands for All Quadrants, All Levels, All Lines, All States, All Types). Hoe Math’s 30 mins video was a cool realistic way to make this topic easy to talk thru this week. Of course it will take more than a week and a 30 min video to truly understand the model so it can be applied in life. But this was a step in the right direction. And as long as we taking these steps, we will get there.

Hoe Math explored Ken Wilber’s AQAL model, a comprehensive framework for understanding human psychological development.

The main premise is that people evolve through multiple levels of psychological development, starting from basic needs and progressing to complex, abstract thinking. These levels are not just theoretical; they represent real, observable changes in how people perceive and interact with the world.

The video underscores that while individuals can reach higher levels of thinking, they still use lower levels in daily life. Which is why I feel we should respect every level of thinking, because we’ve all think and understand the basic level. And from our own experiences of evolving should understand how challenging it can be to level up. I feel society can kind of keep us thinking at the basic level, never really encouraging us to explore more. Which is why understanding and breaking into higher tiers can be revolutionary. Our world starts to change for the better when the collective starts to break into those higher tiers we discussed this week.

Here are the 4 Quadrants discussed in the video that we didn’t get to talk thru this week, but I thought it would be important to quickly review.

The 4 quadrants help to analyze experiences from different perspectives:

1. Upper Left (Individual – Interior): Focuses on internal experiences like thoughts and emotions.

2. Upper Right (Individual – Exterior): Looks at observable behaviors and actions.

3. Lower Left (Collective – Interior): Deals with shared cultural beliefs and values.

4. Lower Right (Collective – Exterior): Examines societal systems and structures.

The video also emphasizes that each level of development involves more inclusive and integrated ways of understanding oneself and the world.

As people grow, they learn to see things from a broader perspectives, moving from self-centered viewpoints to more world-centric and eventually cosmos-centric understandings. Overall, “Hoe Math” highlights the importance of recognizing and nurturing mental development to achieve a more profound and holistic understanding of life, ultimately leading to better personal and societal outcomes.

“AQAL is a meta-theory, a theory of everything that includes all perspectives, cultures, and fields of knowledge, integrating them into a coherent whole.”

May we continue to have the tools needed to level up 🙏🏾
