Noosphere

noosphere “In Teilhard de Chardin’s scheme, anytime the consciousness of any one individual in the world is raised, the general quality and quantity of mind in the world is enhanced. He called this invisible component of the atmosphere the ‘noosphere,’ after the archaic Greek word noos, which means ‘mind’.

I… use such a model… of a human superconsciousness… to explain how an artist can incorporate ideas into his or her work that have not yet been discovered by physicists and that are certainly unknown to the general public.”

Art and Physics, Leonard Shlain, 1991; p. 383
