Well a search for the Noosphere led me to a very interesting page, Thinking About the Noosphere: Sri Aurobindo, The Overmind, Supermind and the Descent of the Supramental. The Noosphere represents a major evolutionary alteration of human consciousness.
Most of us would have heard of 2012, the end of the Mayan calendar, the end of Terrence Mckenna’s Timewave, the ascension by Michael Sharp, the end of the world for some and last but not the least is the Noosphere.
The elaboration of mystical contemplation of every kind, the definitions and explorations of cosmic consciousness, and the techniques of yoga and meditation are all considered as providing clues as to the nature of the forthcoming evolutionary shift, the noosphere.
“The coming of a spiritual age must be preceded by appearance of an increasing number of individuals who are no longer satisfied with the normal intellectual, vital, and psychical existence of man, but perceive that a greater evolution is the real goal of humanity and attempt to effect it in themselves, to lead others to it, and to make it the recognized goal of the race.”
“In proportion as they succeed and the degree to which they carry this evolution, the yet unrealized potentiality which they represent will become the actual possibility of the future.”
“The ordinary man lives in his own personal consciousness knowing things through his mind and senses as they are touched by a word which is outside him, outside his consciousness. When the consciousness subtilizes, it begins to come into contact with things in a much more direct way, not only with their forms and outer impacts but with what is inside them, but still the range may be small. But the consciousness can also widen and begin to be first in direct contact with a universe of range of things in the world, then to contain them as it were – as it is said to see the world in oneself – and to be in a way identified with it. To see all things in the self and the self in all things – to be aware of one being everywhere, aware directly of the different planes, their forces, their beings – that is universalization.”
XXII p.317, quoted in Essential Aurobindo.
According to these thoughts and words, all of us have our individual minds and conscious. But some people have managed to tap into a collective consciousness, each one of us have the power to attain higher levels of consciousness, by different methods and means to reach this goal in human evolution.
So when you understand that the universe itself is conscious and each one of us are the same, you tend to look for answers and when this search begins, you set yourself on a wonderful journey where you can bend the space time continuum, experience telepathy just like how you connect to Google to do a search you would need to tune in to this consciousness and use it for the benefit of yourself and everyone around you.
If you remember I had spoken about being spiritual in societies filled with chaos with Nisargadatta Maharaj’s “I Am” theory, its one of the easiest ways to begin this journey into oneself. You can also read more about the I Am theory and how it applies across all religions. So bon voyage people lets begin making the world a better place by starting with ourselves!
