Manifesto for the Noosphere: The next Stage in the Evolution of Human Consciousnessby Jose Arguelles
Synopses & Reviews
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 ofhuman thought. Manifesto for the Noosphere, the final work by renowned author Jose Arguelles, predicts that the noosphere will be fullyaccessed 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), Arguelles says, will be an unprecedented mind shift that mirrors the emergence of life itself on the planet.
Manifestofor the Noosphere is intended to inform and prepare humanity for the nature and magnitude of this shift. Arguelles brings in the Mayan long-count calendar, radical theories on the nature of time, advanced states of consciousness, and the possible intervention of galactic intelligence. He carefully details the role of the noosphere in relation to other planetary strata (hydrosphere, biosphere, atmosphere) as well asthe history and nature of the biosphere-noosphere transition and the intermediary phases of the technosphere and cybersphere.
