We assume that contact won’t happen before humanity reaches a certain level in its development. We consider humanity to be a young species because we have not solved our fundamental problems yet. We measure progress in human development based on several factors seen below. We have collected some of the most important. The statistics below will be changed, updated and added as times go by.
Our aim is 100 %.
Bytheway, reaching 100 % in all is not to say that society will be perfect, but it will be in much better shape than before. Just a few decades ago the percentage was much lower. The world is making progress in total more or less each year, with some setbacks occasionally. On the other hand, we don’t think we need to achieve 100 % on everything before contact.
We have summarized all the percents below. The higher the percentage the more compassion, empathy, sharing, and cooperation will we see in
the society. In other words, more love.

The statistic comes from the UN, The World Bank, Gapminder and many more.

- Heading for peace – The economic impact of war and violence on the global economy in 2017 was $14.76 trillion equivalent to 12.4% of the world’s economic activity (PPP terms) or $1,988 for every person. (Data from Vision of Humanity.) Because of the war in Ukraine, this goal of less spending on weapons has unfortunately increased. So this percentage is reduced from 87 % to 82 % (our estimate). 82% 82%

- School – Amount of girls finish primary school in all low-income countries across the world (data from Gapminder). Note! Only 9 percent of the world lives in low-income countries (source: the book Factfulness) 60% 60%
