Won in a Goodreads First Reads contest ... but wasn't expecting this. See, I glanced at the description and saw something regarding "technosphere" and moving beyond it (into the "Noosphere") and thought, "oh, this must be about our technological age and where our brains can go now. How cool."

Oh how wrong I was.

As soon as I got the book and held it and looked at the back, I was confused. This was NOT where I parked my car, as a movie character once said. Still, I read it and here's the thing.

I haven't finished the book yet but I think it will bring a deeper knowledge to people and the earth and their own minds.

Five less one star because the illustrations (my field of endeavor) are not helpful to illuminating the text.

I believe that consciousness heightened and shared is the next step in human evolution, bu ...more
This was an alright book, although it was a little too fluffy - even for me. I did enjoy some of the descriptions of the history/future and the visualization of the Earth/universe metaphysical structure.

I did especially enjoy the discussion of how we measure time, and I do agree that our current calendar does not make ...more

Interesting read overall. Part I gives historical background of the noosphere concept, which I particularly enjoyed not knowing that the concept is more than a century old. Part II incorporates Arguelles' Law of Time theory and how we are supposedly in a global evolutionary spiritual ascent; inspirational for personal transformation (even though Arguelles considers such work as primarily egocentric) but a bit too prophetic of a utopian future. This was Arguelles' last work and published under Ev ...more
