Chapter IV: Birth of Cultures

Cultures are the wide expansion and uniting of a said species, or group of species. Often first civilizations are created by a mixture of subspecies, during their tribe age. After they begin to unite and work together, they start to gain more knowledge, allowing their expansion to grow greatly. As one culture is made, often multiple subcultures come from it.

Common Evolution of cultures.


Initially as earlier specified cultures start in a tribal period and soon extent into more complex societies, as tools and wisdom becomes more mainstream. Soon with this, the culture expands into many subcultures, and soon become cultures of their own. Usually, within a few thousand years, a large aspect of the world is populated by the species, and the mainly cultures that comes with it.

Tribal Cultures Tribal cultures is often ruled by one being, with absolute power, and responsibility for the tribe. Usually they live in very simplistic buildings, the perfect size for the amount of individuals living within. They often produce at a limited rate, and slowly evolve in mentality/physicality or advance in technology.

Seeds of Collective Civilization This is the type of culture that gives birth to the modern expansion of society, in many ways. Mostly these type of cultures are ruled by monarchies, theocracies, or any other kind of culture ruled mainly by one individual or a group of very powerful individuals. Very rather are these civilizations advanced enough for such complex societies as federalism, democracy, republics or another other system of widely given power and responsibility(which is to say allowing more individuals freedom, then previous governmental systems).

Pre-enlightened Cultures: Are often cultures inwhich either have long lasting monarchies, or being the more advanced systems, such as republics or democracy. This is also the beginning of mainstream anarchism. Often the buildings of these types of cultures are much stronger and larger then the past, and the technology is massively produced and disrupted.

Post Enlightened Cultures This is where technology evolves greatly, and the ancient cultures begin to change and join the evolution of the other highly advanced cultures. The buildings become much easier to maintain and science becomes known, yet not commonly practiced. However their are exceptions, on some planets science could be mainstream through out the entirety of the existence. However, commonly it takes a time for our minds to expand from lacking self awareness, too learning science, due to the understanding needed for self. This is often consider post medieval age and premodern.

Modern Cultures This is a label used to decribe the type of society that we live in now, with unlimited possibly differences, due to knowledge, technology and expansion. However this is also a label for the time that knowledge becomes mainstream, and begins to evolve constantly without stop. Not only does knowledge expand at this time, but everything is on a constant growth and expansion, far faster and greater then any period before. Many jobs and abilities open up and is often based on a republic or democracy, rather then the older methods of governing.

Futuristic Cultures: This is where the mind is completely, 100% free to roam. Within the other potential evolutionary advancements, their are many many possibilities. However, the possibilities within a futuristic culture is far more expansive. This is where space travel can be possible, highly complex and advanced technologies and mentalities can exist, and anything else the mind can conceive.

Their is no true official understanding of these types of cultures, this is only a possible variations of cultures and evolution of cultures.
