Context: Collective Intelligence, Wisdom and Consciousness (CIWC) is a new discipline which aim is to observe and understand from an integral perspective what social organizations humanity is producing for itself along its evolutionary journey. The need for wider consciousness and embrace of the world at collective levels leads to the evolutionary emergence of global wisdom driven organizations. This has always been possible at small group level when participants get highly trained, today the development of socialware, the growth of the cultural creatives society everywhere, and the many distributed network flourishing in the the civil society demonstrate that global wisdom driven organizations are possible. The next step that can be anticipated is the multiplication and globalization of community currencies, i.e. currency systems that communities (people, organizations, corporations, regions...) will create for their own market places. Scarce, debt-based and interest-based national tender anymore prove today to be an inadequate tool for a knowledge and wisdom based society.
