Societies do experience lessons together.
For example, If news outlets start broadcasting information about a threat in the world that can be perceived as scary by most, fear can be created. This collective fear can quickly turns into a large scale global manifestation. From this manifestation, lessons such as economic deficits, wars, and other unfortunate global events can be created.
Individuals have different perspectives and often allow their differences to separate them. If society were to unite with a common goal, that goal can materialize. Society can decide if they want a collective goal that is positive or negative.
If the information presented to people had a focus on miracles, the resulting global manifestation would be a world full of miracles.
