The appeal of Wilberian philosophy lies in its ability to systematise the whole world in a single often colourful diagram (ignoring the obvious inconsistencies that result from such a procrustean approach). What I like about this particular diagram (original url) is the fact that it so unorthodox in presenting the center (in Wilberian philosophy the lowest level of consciousness; in both Kabbalistic concentric cosmological diagrams and Haskell and Cassidy's Coaction Cardinoid it is the same) as the highest, with its star-like Divine brilliance. Thus, as with Tantric mandalas, the Vedantic koshas and Sri Aurobindo's concentric series, the innermost is also the highest.
In any case, Wilber's attempts at a Universal synethsis of knowledge, as in his AQAL diagram, have inspired me to create my own exoteric Integral diagrams, such as the following:
This diagram includes the Mandukya Upanishad's four States of Gross, Subtle, Causal and Transcendent (the foundation of nondual Vedantic and Tantric yoga psychology), the three substrates of consciousness: Physical, Emotional, and Mental, the three corresponding planes of physical, astral, and ideational, the four perspectives of Objective, Intersubjective, Intrasubjecticve and Transubjectiv, and the paired socio-cultural spheres of Religion & Ethics, Art & Culture, Philosophy & Metaphysics, and Science & Technology.
