Teilhard de Chardin Quote of the Week (February 3, 2014): Unification of Humanity

A depiction of the Noosphere

A depiction of the Noosphere

From his Essay: “The Psychological Conditions of the Unification of Man”

If there is one event that is insidiously and irresistibly engrossing our thoughts, adding every day a further complication, it is undoubtedly that of the unification of man. All around us the ride of the world’s economic, political and psychic socialization is continually invading, and even submerging, the life of even the humblest.

About William Ockham

I am a father of two with eclectic interests in theology, philosophy and sports. I chose the pseudonym William Ockham in honor of his contributions to philosophy, specifically Occam's Razor, and its contributions to modern scientific theory. My blog (www.teilhard.com) explores Ignatian Spirituality and the intersection of faith, science and reason through the life and writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (pictured above).

    The unification of ‘man’… How much I would like him to be 50 today…

    EXTRACTED FROM http://noosphere.princeton.edu/
    When human consciousness becomes coherent and synchronized, the behavior of random systems may change. Data is continuously collected from a global network . The findings so far indicate a subtle, real effects of consciousness. These are important scientifically, but their real power is more direct. They encourage us to make essential, healthy changes in the great systems that dominate our world. Large scale group consciousness has effects in the physical world. The evidence suggests an emerging noosphere, or the unifying field of consciousness described by sages in all cultures.
    I recently wrote about Rippling; a “ripple” effect of positive consciousnes. I also posed on Heart Consciousness.
    I hadn’t mentioned that Teilhard had been an influence and an inspiration for looking into global consciousness – since back in the 1980s.

    These quotes provide me with so much on which to reflect – how I wish I could sit and listen to Teilhard’s explanations. Most days something Teilhard wrote comes to mind and I ponder for a while. I appreciate your blog very much William.

  5. sure – you asked: “Could you include a link”
    ABSOLUTELY ! ! !
    ::: so honored :::

    Loving thoughts bring, with loving energy, loving feelings and loving emotion. Send out Ripples of Blessings, Ripples of Social Justice, Ripples of Goodness, Ripples of Peace, and Ripples of Loving-Kindness.

    Any (list) additional links are supplied at the bottom of the ripple-ing post.

    I have been collecting research and I have new drafts that continue these posts (list) and also link back to Teilhard works. Often, in new age and Buddhist posts here and elsewhere there is made references to a new age of spiritual awakening – this is of the NOOSPHERE – a third millennium transcendence. In science there is emergence of interests of global consciousness and cosmic conscious. In psychology there is transcendental psychology. Dating back for thousands of years – works find me and thus, I have always more than enough to contribute.

    Thanks for asking Wiliam.
