MUST READ CAPSTONE WORK: Noosphere — The Next Stage in the Evolution of Human Consciousness, A Testimony by Jose Arguelles

Tip of the Hat to Reality Sandwich for this offering, and to Evolver Editions (North Atlantic/Random House) for their new Manifesto series in support of human consciousness and planetary synthesis. North Atlantic Books - Manifesto for the Noosphere. The noosphere, identified in the early twentieth century as intrinsic to the next stage of human and terrestrial evolution, is defined as the Earth’s “mental sphere” or stratum of human thought. the final work by renowned author José Argüelles, predicts that the noosphere will be fully accessed on December 21, 2012—but warns that we will only successfully make this evolutionary jump through an act of collective consciousness among humans on Earth.

The ascension to the noosphere or Supermind (using the terminology of Sri Aurobindo), Argüelles says, will be an unprecedented “mind shift” that mirrors the emergence of life itself on the planet. {*style:<i> Manifesto for the Noosphere </i>*}is intended to inform and prepare humanity for the nature and magnitude of this shift. José Argüelles. José Argüelles, born Joseph Anthony Arguelles (/ɑrˈɡweɪ.ɨs/; Rochester, Minnesota January 24, 1939 – March 23, 2011),[1][2] was an American New Age author and artist.

José Argüelles

He was the founder of Planet Art Network and the Foundation for the Law of Time. He held a Ph.D. in Art History and Aesthetics from the University of Chicago and taught at numerous colleges, including Princeton University, the University of California, Davis, the San Francisco Art Institute, and Evergreen State College.

As one of the originators of the Earth Day concept (due in part to the influence of astrologer Dane Rudhyar), Argüelles founded the first Whole Earth Festival in 1970, at Davis, California. He is best known for his leading role in organizing the 1987 Harmonic Convergence event, for inventing (with the assistance of his wife Lloydine) the perpetual Dreamspell calendar in 1992,[3] and for the central role that he played in the emergence of the 2012 phenomenon.

He also coordinates research in the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory at Princeton University. Nelson's professional training is in experimental psychology and psychophysiology, supplemented by a background in physics, statistical methods, engineering, sculpture, electronic music, and multi-media production. He is a student of "alternate psychologies" which represent a wide range of transpersonal and non-western approaches to the understanding of consciousness. He feels that an inclusive and multi-disciplinary approach combining scientific, aesthetic, and spiritual perspectives is essential if we are to come to terms with consciousness as it exists and operates in the physical world.

La montée vers la noosphère -P Levy.pdf. Omega Point. The Omega Point is the purported maximum level of complexity and consciousness towards which some theorize the universe is evolving.

Omega Point

The term was coined by the French Jesuit Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881–1955). According to Teilhard the universe is constantly evolving towards higher levels of material complexity and consciousness, a hypothesis that Teilhard called the Law of Complexity/Consciousness. Teilhard postulates this process results in an absolute, completed whole, which in his view is the actual cause of our Universe's increasing development. In other words, the Omega Point will exist as supremely complex and conscious, transcendent and independent of the evolving universe. Teilhard argued that the Omega Point resembles the Christian Logos, namely Christ, who draws all things into himself, who in the words of the Nicene Creed, is "God from God", "Light from Light", "True God from true God," and "through him all things were made.

" Five attributes[edit] Related concepts[edit] Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Chardin & The NooSphere. Cyberspace and the Dream of Tielhard de Chardin. Progressive Catholics have long cherished Teilhard de Chardin and his unique and mystical vision, and for those of us who have only recently discovered the New Cosmology, his discovery is as great an epiphany as the encountering of Hildegard, Julian of Norwich, or any of the other mystics who testify to Divine immanence.

Cyberspace and the Dream of Tielhard de Chardin

Teilhard was a man possessed of rare vision who was capable of remythologizing his faith to fit the "facts" that his scientific studies convinced him of. His was not a God "out there" who disapproved of humans hypothesizing about or even tampering with the Creation. His God was an organic entity who lived and breathed the life and breath of the Creation, a Creator who was simultaneously giving birth to and being born from the magnificent organism of the universe. Chardin was not a psychologist, nor even a philosopher in the usual sense. He was a priest and mystic, but he was also a scientist, to whom the concept of evolution held as much weight as scripture.

Phillip J. Cunningham, C.S.P. In 1964, while attempting to adjust my thinking to the many changes following the Second Vatican Council, I first encountered the writings of the French geologist/paleontologist, Pere Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Though he had died nine years earlier, it was only after the Council that his works began appearing in the United States. That circumstance necessitates some biographical information. Pere Teilhard was born in 1881 to a pious, provincial French family. As a stretcher bearer during the ghastliest battles of that conflict, Teilhard's personal faith was severely challenged. Anaxagoras. Anaxagoras (/ˌænækˈsæɡərəs/; Ancient Greek: Ἀναξαγόρας, Anaxagoras, "lord of the assembly"; c. 510 – 428 BC) was a Pre-Socratic Greek philosopher.


Born in Clazomenae in Asia Minor, Anaxagoras was the first philosopher to bring philosophy from Ionia to Athens. We are all core receivers. Anaxagoras on GetGlue. Vladimir Vernadsky. Vladimir Ivanovich Vernadsky (Russian: Влади́мир Ива́нович Верна́дский; Ukrainian: Володи́мир Іва́нович Верна́дський; 12 March [O.S. 28 February] 1863 – 6 January 1945) was a Ukrainian and Soviet mineralogist and geochemist who is considered one of the founders of geochemistry, biogeochemistry, and of radiogeology.[1] His ideas of noosphere were an important contribution to Russian cosmism.

Vladimir Vernadsky

He also worked in Ukraine during the Russian Civil War, where he founded the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences (now National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine). He is most noted for his 1926 book The Biosphere in which he inadvertently worked to popularize Eduard Suess’ 1885 term biosphere, by hypothesizing that life is the geological force that shapes the earth. In 1943 he was awarded the Stalin Prize.

Vernadsky Foundation Sustainable Development through Partnership The name of the Academician Vladimir Ivanovich Vernadsky has been always deeply honored in Russia and Ukraine, and recently has become widely known, especially in connection with topicality of his doctrine of the Earth's biosphere and its inevitable evolutionary transformation into the sphere of the human reason (the noosphere).

I would like to begin my presentation with expression of my gratitude to the organizers of the Second Planetary Congress on the Bio-Sphere Rights and to the Foundation of the Time Law for the possibility to address this audience.

I came from Moscow, Russia in order to tell you about the Noosphere Spiritual Ecological World Assembly, (World Assembly, NSEWA), of which I have the honour to be a President. I represented NSEWA in a lot if international forums, including the Global Forum of the Earth of the Summit on Sustainable Development (Rio + 10) in Johannesburg (2002), at different conferences held in the framework of World Exhibition EXPO-2005 in Japanese Nagoya (2005) and in other forums.

This is a common understanding of the scholars of different countries who pay more and more attention to the noospheric way for social development. Ноосферная духовно-экологическая Ассамблея мира.

The New Citizen June/July 2012 Page 7 basically invented the British imperialscience of “ecology” (he coined theterm “ecosystem” in a famous 1935article), applied the Clausius/Kelvinconstruct to “Nature”, and the Universeas a whole. That is, Tansley proposed that the entire Universe, includingall processes on Earth, is simply the product of inanimate flows of energythat are inevitably winding down.Tansley concocted his argument incollaboration with two other Russellassociates, the devout eugenicists and imperialists H.G.
