In 1922, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, paleontologist and geologist, French philosopher and Jesuit priest, introduced the concept of Noosphere which he described as “the sphere of thought encircling the earth that has emerged through evolution as a consequence of this growth in complexity / consciousness.”
During the last 20 years, the Internet has revealed the astonishing extent of this new reality. Today, for better or for worse, not only can information reach any corner of the world in an instant, but new communities are born every second through our extensive social networks.
The quest for knowledge is a major driving force factor in the evolution of any society. Civilizations are born and shaped through their innovative thinking and technology. Unfortunately some have also disappeared due to their mistaken ideas and wrongdoing.
In recent years, we have become very aware of how precious our biosphere is and how our earth could be in peril if we don’t pay attention to the delicate balance of our environment. In today’s world, while continuing to honor our previous concerns, we recognize the importance of adding the additional awareness of another level of life, the Noosphere (our collective thoughts).
