Summary

The noosphere, identified in the early twentieth century as intrinsic to the next stage of human and terrestrial evolution, is defined as the Earth#x19;s #x1C;mental sphere#x1D; or stratum of human thought. In Manifesto for the Noosphere,best-selling author Jos#xE9; Arg#xFC;elles 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), Arg#xFC;elles says, will be an unprecedented #x1C;mind shift#x1D; that mirrors the emergence of life itself on the planet 500 million years ago. Manifesto for the Noosphereis intended to inform and prepare humanity for the nature and magnitude of this shift. Arg#xFC;elles 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 as the history and nature of the biosphere-noosphere transition and the intermediary phases of the technosphere and cybersphere.
