Original Research

Theory of Societal-Actualization: achieved through mass communication and information technology.

The phenomena where societies reach actualization when a critical mass of individuals within that society each reach self-actualization. Critical mass can be gained with the help of modern communication technologies that facilitate speed and reach, but most importantly, that provide the appropriate ecosystem for efficient, effective, and productive communication. This ecosystem helps empower and enable individuals to independently and/or collaboratively reach the actualization stage, ultimately elevating societies. 

This theory builds upon Maslow's hierarchy of needs.
