I found out that other religions have their own consciousness-level groupings. Theraveda has 8-12 levels, Sokka Gakkai has 9, yoga has 7 corresponding to chakra, and new age has its own levels.
Which of the other consciousness level-groups are most similar to Kukai's 10 stages ? I'm trying to find patterns and similarities so that I can defend basing my research on Kukai's work (because his work was detailed and observable in all places).

Even behavioral economics assumes a single consciousness type (rational) and only observes the effects of such type. For example, Friedman and von Mises could not explain the technicalities on how 2 minds could agree on the value for certain products, so they just settled for their own superficial solutions--Friedman chose money, von Mises chose the gold standard. Both ways attempt to quantify the abstract, which is unnatural and thus eventually leads to economic/social injustice/imbalance.
