"The point of all evolution up to this stage is the
creation of a collective organism of Mind." John Perry Barlow.
There is no doubt that life has become more complex.
On the one hand, complexity causes overwhelm and
stress. Stress is pandemic across humanity. On the
other hand, many of us have an innate drive to expand
our awareness and consciousness by consuming lots of
information and crave the stimulations of complexity or
the "law of complexity consciousness," as was so
succinctly proposed by Teillard de Chardin, which stated
that increasing complexity is accompanied by increased
consciousness. He argued that the primary vehicle for
increasing complexity consciousness among living
organisms was the nervous system. The informational
wiring of a [BE]ing, he argued - whether of neurons or
electronics - gives birth to consciousness. If one accepts
this power of connections, then the potential of the
planetary neural-network of the Internet is in[DEED]
fertile soil for the emergence of a global intelligence.

The following article is an eloquent description of our
migration toward the evolution of a global neural network
- the noosphere. The efforts of the Human Sustainability
Institute supports Teilhard's perspective that as we
become conscious of our group mind, a new relationship
with the earth emerges.
