COPING WITH CHANGE IN THIS EVOLVING WORLD CAN BE VERY DIFFICULT.

LIFE TRANSITIONS ARE OFTEN HARD, BUT THEY HAVE A POSITIVE SIDE, TOO.  THEY PROVIDE US WITH AN OPPORTUNITY TO ASSESS THE DIRECTION OUR LIVES ARE TAKING.  THEY ARE A CHANCE TO GROW AND LEARN.  ACCEPT THAT CHANGE IS A NORMAL PART OF LIFE.  PEOPLE WHO HAVE THIS ATTITUDE SEEM TO HAVE THE EASIEST TIME GETTING THROUGH LIFE TRANSITIONS.  SEEING CHANGES AS NEGATIVE OR AS EXPERIENCES THAT MUST BE AVOIDED MAKES THEM MORE DIFFICULT TO NAVIGATE AND LESS PERSONALLY PRODUCTIVE.  IDENTIFY YOUR VALUES AND LIFE GOALS.

DETERMINE YOUR PLACE IN THE 'NOOSPHERE', AND YOU WILL BE A PRODUCTIVE AND SATISFIED MEMBER OF SOCIETY...

WHAT IS THE NOOSPHERE?

-  THE NOOSPHERE CAN BE SEEN AS THE 'SPHERE OF HUMAN THOUGHT'.  JUST AS THE BIOSPHERE IS COMPOSED OF THE ORGANISMS ON THE PLANET, AND THEIR INTERACTIONS - THE NOOSPHERE IS COMPOSED OF ALL THE INTERACTIVE MINDS ON EARTH.  THE WORD IS ALSO SOMETIMES USED TO REFER TO A TRANSHUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS EMERGING FROM THESE INTERPERSONAL INTERACTIONS.  

PIERRE TEILHARD DE CHARDIN WROTE THAT THE NOOSPHERE IS EVOLVING TOWARD AN EVEN GREATER INTEGRATION, CULMINATING IN THE OMEGA POINT - WHICH HE DESCRIBED AS THE ULTIMATE GOAL IN HISTORY.

TRANSHUMANS:  THE EARLIEST MANIFESTATION OF NEW EVOLUTIONARY BEINGS.  

SIGNS OF TRANSHUMANISM:  PROTHESIS, PLASTIC SURGERY, INTENSIVE USE OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS, A 'COSMOPOLITAN' OUTLOOK, GLOBETROTTING LIFESTYLES, ANDROGYNY, MEDIATED REPRODUCTION (SUCH AS THE USE OF VITRO FERTILISATION), ABSENCE OF TRADITIONAL RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, AND THE REJECTION OF TRADITIONAL FAMILY VALUES.

WHAT IS THE OMEGA POINT?  ACCORDING TO DECHARDIN, THE PLANET IS UNDEGOING A TRANSFORMATIVE PROCESS.  WHEN THE TRANSFORMATION FROM THE BIOSPHERE (OLD) TO THE NOOSPHERE (NEW) IS COMPLETE THEN WE WILL ACHIEVE THIS 'OMEGA POINT'.

WE'LL ACHIEVE TRUE NUMINOSITY.

WHAT'S NUMINOSITY?

IRA PROGROFF DESCRIBES IT AS 'A SENSE OF TRANSCENDENT VALIDITY, AUTHENTICITY, AND ESSENTIAL DIVINITY.'

THIS WILL BE OUR STATE OF IDENTITY WHEN WE FINALLY CROSS THE OMEGA POINT.
