The general development of human experiences

The process of development

There is an appointed time in the process of growth and development. Every created thing, both living or non-living, passes through stages of development and progress or growth.

For example, a beautiful house had been through a lot of specific stages of development before you can finally live in it.

Foremost is the desire of a certain person to own a house; this alone had taken some time for such person to figure out why would he like to own a house rather than just rent, what design of a house could it be to meet his desires, what comfort would he like to enjoy in the house that he intends to build, who and how many people are going to live in that house; these and many more considerations are taking some time before the decision to build a house can be made. All these take some time to figure out, whether consciously, or otherwise.

Then there is the stage of planning; where to get the money, how much is the budget, who will construct or build it, and so forth and so on.

Natural human development

Human development

The example concerning the stages in building and owning a house can also be applied in the nature of human development.

On one hand, Nature has set human development into certain stages; basically, there are 4 major biological stages in a human lifespan as follow:

1. child (0-12)

2. Adolescence and puberty (13-19)

3. Adult (20 + years)

4. Death

Whereas, in the point of view of numerology, there are basically three stages or cycles in a human development, namely:

1. The First cycle (0 - 31)

2. The Prime of life (32- 56)

3. The Final Years (57- end)

On the hand, socialization's point of view, which slightly differ from one culture to another is as follow;

1. Foundation of the socialization process, family relationships(0 - 6)

2. Peer group relationships(7 - 16)

3. Opposite sex relationships; marriage and parenting (17-35)

4. Education and Career relationships(overlapping with Oppositesex, 18 - 50)

5. Stabilization and Self-actualization (overlapping with Education and Career, 40- end)

The ones mentioned above are just the basic few among the infinite and more complicated areas of development in every human being. The complex spiritual, philosophical, psychological and other intangible "mysterious" human uniqueness are integral parts in every stage of development in human experiences.

      I liked your hub. Sometimes we hurry too much, aim too far, want more and more.

      It 's all there for us as long as we can see it!
