Both Gebser's and Taub’s model can present difficult hurdles for those unfamiliar with or resistant to big picture models. The Caste Model requires the reader to (1) accept the notion of caste and (2) that the cultural-geographic regions correspond with the four caste types. It asks readers to accept an entirely new world view and suspend a Euro-centric view of history. The reader also has to comprehend the integration of the Caste Model with the Sex and Age Models.

Geber’s model requires us to accept his use and definition of consciousness and his use of the word “perspective.” The latter is based on the incorrect assumption that only Europe developed a pictorial projection system. China developed axonometry, conceptually related to the so-called “aperspectival” view but developed in the “pre-perspectival” Magic stage. The Russian Suprematists used axonometry to escape the perspectival view Gebser describes, best illustrated in El Lissitzky’s [https://www.google.co.th/search?q=prouns+lissitzky&hl=en&dcr=0&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwih5ry_lYvWAhVIrI8KHbIcBnUQ_AUICigB&biw=1152&bih=533 Proun series]. Unlike linear perspective, axonometry also offer a view of infinity.

Both Gebser and Taub provide remarkable insight in the evolution of humanity. Gebser’s model arguably sheds more light on human (and one’s individual) consciousness, Taub’s model helps us to understand how and why consciousness changes from one cultural-geographic regions to the next. It is for the reader to decide to what extend the models overlap and can be integrated.
