"The noosphere is best described as a sort of 'collective consciousness' of human beings.  It emerges from the interaction of human minds.  The noosphere has grown in step with the organisation of the human mass in relation to itself as it populates the earth.  As mankind organises itself in more complex social networks, the higher the noosphere will grow in awareness.  This is an extension of Teilhard's law of Complexity/ Consciousness, the law describing the nature of evolution in the universe.  Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, added the the noosphere is growing towards an even greater integration  and unification, culminating in the Omega Point - which he saw as the goal of history" Wikepedia
