The Noosphere, is a place where all the World Prayers and Collective Meditation stand before falling back on the needed for the whole planet.
Each healing thought in entanglement with thousands of other healing thoughts helps generate a worldwide vortex of Love and Compassion that magnifies each personal healing intention through reciprocal global caring support.
When prayers are shared and joined in by others.
Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), Katherine Solomon and The Lost Symbol By Dan Brown In his book “The Lost Symbol”, Dan Brown writes about Katherine Solomon a fictional character who’s a Noetic scientist; she has a lab at the New York Metropolitan Museum (Idea came from the Institute of Noetic Sciences in California). Robert Langdon when was explained about the concept of noetic sciences, “Katherine’s two books on Noetic had established her as a leader in this obscure field, but her most recent discoveries, when published, promised to make Noetic Science a topic of mainstream conversation around the world.”Experiments at facilities like the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) in California and the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research Lab (PEAR) had categorically proven that human thought, if properly focused, had the ability to affect and change physical mass. Their experiments were highly controlled inquiries that all produced the same extraordinary result.
The noosphere can be seen as the “sphere of human thought” being derived from the Greek (“nous”) meaning “mind” in the style of “atmosphere” and “biosphere”. In the original theory of Vernadsky, the noosphere is the third in a succession of phases of development of the Earth, after the geosphere (inanimate matter) and the biosphere (biological life). The word is also sometimes used to refer to a trans-human consciousness emerging from the interactions of human minds. This is the view proposed by the theologian Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin became enthralled with the possibilities for humankind, which he saw as heading for an exciting convergence of systems, an “Omega point”where the coalescence of consciousness will lead us to a new state of peace and planetary unity. Long before ecology was fashionable, he saw this unity as being based intrinsically upon the spirit of the Earth. Teilhard perceived a directionality in evolution along an axis of increasing
Complexity/Consciousness. For Teilhard, the noosphere is the sphere of thought encircling the earth that has emerged through evolution as a consequence of this growth in complexity / consciousness. The noosphere is therefore as much part of nature as the barysphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere. As a result, Teilhard sees the “social phenomenon’s the culmination of and not the attenuation of the biological phenomenon.” These social phenomena are part of the noosphere and include, for example legal, educational, religious, research, industrial and technological systems. In this sense, the noosphere emerges through and is constituted by the interaction of human minds. The noosphere thus grows in step with the organization of the human mass in relation to itself as it populates the earth. Teilhard argued the noosphere evolves towards ever greater personalization individuation and unification of its elements. He saw the Christian notion of love as being the principal driver of noogenesis. Evolution would culminate in the Omega Point – an apex of thought/consciousness – which he identified with Christ.
One of the original aspects of the noosphere concept deals with evolution. Henri Bergson, with his L’évolution créatrice (1907) was one of the first to propose evolutionis “creative” and cannot necessarily be explained solely by Darwinian natural selection. L’évolution créatrice is upheld, according to Bergson, by a constant vital force which animates life and fundamentally connects mind and body, an idea opposing the dualism of René Descartes. In 1923, C. Lloyd Morgan took this work further elaborating on an “emergent evolution” which could explain increasing complexity, including the evolution of mind. Morgan found many of the most interesting changes in living things have been largely discontinuous with past evolution, and therefore did not necessarily take place through a gradual process of natural selection. Rather evolution experiences jumps in complexity such as the emergence of a self-reflective universe, or noosphere. Finally, the complexification of human cultures, particularly language, facilitated a quickening of evolution in which cultural evolution occurs more rapidly than biological evolution. Recent understanding of human ecosystems and of human impact on the biosphere have led to a link between the notion of sustainability with the “co-evolution” (Norgaard, 1994) and harmonization of cultural and biological evolution.
The noosphere represents a major evolutionary alteration of human consciousness. This is a shift from atomized individual consciousness to the consciousness of a vastsingle entity, what might be referred to as the collective telepathic field of planet Earth. The Earth is a whole system, we must now take responsibility for the thoughts we create that charge the mental field or thinking layer of the Earth with the actual causes for everything that ails us and the planet today. Not only must we take responsibility for our own thoughts, we must also realize the relativity of our thinking and our assumptions in relation to everybody else’s thinking and assumptions, and perhaps rethink our whole program.
Christians are aware of modern evolutionary science, We are aware of the great interconnection of all humanity and the ultimate evolution towards the Cosmic Christ going toward the Omega Point, which is centered on mutual love (John 1:1-5, Acts 17:28, Rom. 8:22-30, 1 Cor. 15:28, Eph. 4:12-16, Col. 1:15-20).
Since the beginnings Christians had a belief in the mystical bond that united all of humanity. As St. Paul said: “For building up the body of Christ, until we all attain the unity of faith and knowledge of the Son of God, to mature to adulthood, to the extent of the full stature of Christ. Living the truth in love, we should grow in every way into him whois the Head, Christ from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, with the proper functioning of each part brings about the body’s growth and builds itself up in love”.(Eph. 4:12-16).
Institute of Noetic Sciences
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) is an American non-profit parapsychological research institute. It was co-founded in 1973 by former astronaut Edgar Mitchell, along with investor Paul N. Temple interested in purported paranormal phenomena, in order to encourage and conduct research on noetic theory and human potentials.
The institute conducts research on such topics such as spontaneous remission, meditation, consciousness, alternative healing practices consciousness-based healthcare, spirituality, human potential, psychic abilities, psycho-kinesis and survival of consciousness after bodily death. The institute maintains a free database, available on the Internet, with citations to more than 6,500 articles about whether physical and mental health benefits might be connected to meditation and yoga.
Headquartered outside Petaluma, California, the organization is situated on a 200-acre (81 ha) campus that includes offices a research laboratory and a retreat center. Its current director is Cassandra Vieten. Other researchers associated with it include Dean Radin and Rupert Sheldrake.
Edgar Mitchell, co-founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and has reported that on his return to Earth, after the 1971 Apollo 14 moon landing, he had an experience comparable to savikalpa samādhi. He also says that he conducted ESP experiments with earthbound friends during spaceflight. In 1973, along with investor Paul N. Temple and some others Mitchell co-founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences. Willis Harman served as its president from 1975 until his death in 1997.
The word noetic derives from the Greek nous, meaning “mind or ways of knowing.” Writing in The Huffington Post, the institute’s director of research pointed to philosopher William James’ 1902 definition of the word as states of insight into depths of truth unplumbed by the discursive intellect. They are illuminations, revelations, full of significance and importance all inarticulate though they remain; and as a rule they carry with them a curious sense of authority.
The institute figures prominently in The Lost Symbol, a work of fiction by best-selling author Dan Brown. Twitter postings on the day before the book’s release led institute director Marilyn Schlitz to purchase the book and read it in one sitting, into the early morning hours of the next day. She told NPR that she found 10 experiments conducted by the real-world institute referred to in Brown’s fictional account. NPR reported that after its publication “traffic to the institute’s Web site, increased twelvefold,”applications for membership increased and “journalists from places like Dateline NBC, not to mention NPR…” were seeking interviews with Schlitz.
The institute confers the Temple Award for Creative Altruism, biennially. The $25,000 award fund is divided among recipients selected by an independent jury. Projects sponsored by the institute include a bibliography on the physical and psychological effects of meditation and yoga, and a spontaneous remission bibliography. The institute has also conducted a number of parapsychological studies into extra-sensory perception, lucid dreaming, telekinesis, and presentiment. According to The Roanoke Times, the institute is” …devoted to exploring psychic phenomena and the role of consciousness in the cosmos. ” Further, the Times noted that co-founder Mitchell’s assertions ” …have often been criticized by skeptics.” Told “your research goes into a number of territories that are regarded with skepticism in some circles,” Mitchell replied That’s what’s fun about it. We’re breaking down barriers and finding things. That’s what science is all about: new discovery. There’s nothing that we have done or have demonstrated that doesn’t have good science behind it. Skeptics be damned.
