World thinking is the thinking of ALL the people in the world.

There are many different and parallel worlds.

There is the cosmos. The natural universal world.

There is the world on Earth. The 1.8 million species of the animal world. The world of plants. There is the human world. There is the world of your family, your school, your gang, your sports club, your partner, your enemy, your nation and the street where you live.

And most poignant and immediate of all, there is the cognos, the world of thinking inside your head!


One of the world’s most authentic examples of world thinking is the Gallup World Poll.

The late Professor George Gallup founded the Gallup Poll at Princeton, New Jersey, which became the world’s first system to objectively and scientifically measure public and customer opinion. He was also the inventor of market research and the ultimate saviour of the customer.

  1. or thoughts and ideas are always coloured by our norms and values
    the world we live in our network of family coworkers inflences on our lives
    the experiences that we have and those we imagine we would like to have

  2. That’s an interesting topic and something I think about often. One of the major questions with this idea is whether or not everyone is “qualified” to vote on every issue. My experience would suggest that the answer is No. I don’t believe that consensus voting on issues such as taxation, healthcare or foreign policy by people with little knowledge or ability in each area would produce better results than our current system.

    As an aside, this topic was covered in a movie called The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer. It came out in the 1960’s and follows the rise or a guy advertising/market research who manipulates his way up the ranks through the power of polls. He is finally elected to PM and decides to have every person vote on every issue. It’s pretty funny in parts and worth a look if you can find it.

  3. what a wonderful world it could be with power in the hands ofthe people, not politicions let the polls decide, not the lobbyist inhouse.
