Cultural Intelligence Can Help Connect Cultures
It seems clear that with computer-information technology revolution, cultural integration and its attended potentials are becoming real.
Rich individuals in the techno-advanced world are recognizing that there is poverty
plaguing a greater part of humanity residing in developing part of the evolving 'global village'- a phrase from world wide web technology. Many of these rich people want to make a change.
With cultural multiplicity
and its attended complexity, understanding the concept of cultural intelligence may provide some insight as to how to connect and integrate technologically advanced cultures with that of non-technologically struggling cultures.

Incorporating Global Cultural Intelligence
To talk of utopia, Mr. Obaka, at best fills the needs to theorize an impossibility. The east and the west are incompatible -- fair and square. Whether is a business or a political agenda the west always tends to 'impose' itself of the marginalized east.
What can be achieved at the most - both rational and logical - the west needs to begin 'appreciating' the east through 'eastern eyes' and the east must learn first to learn then share and then to live the 'western technologically' and the one culture, one people, may loom in the not too distant horizon.
The cultural handshake can only follow a cultural 'heart shake' if, and only if, man begins to think of goodness and peace for humankind.
