In 1964, a Soviet scientist published a paper detailing the 4 types of society

Type 0: non-advanced society. Uses energy on less than a planetary scale

Type 1: Uses energy on a planetary scale. Outputs energy on a scale of thousands to millions times our current energy output

Type 2: Uses energy on a stellar scale

Type 3: Uses energy on a galactic scale

Currently, we are in the Type 0 stage
