Noosphere, Biosphere, Technosphere

Here's another view of how we can look at the universe:  the Noosphere (the world of human thought, or the collective consciousness), biosphere (the world of living things) , and the technosphere (in other posts I've called it cybersphere).  The world is on the verge of Ray Kurzweil's technological singularities where technological progress will become extremely fast, and consequently will make the future unpredictable and qualitatively different from today.    Technological changes will expand our abilities to control the biosphere of living beings and change the biosphere itself.  These technological changes provide new paradigms for human thought and new models for human beings to organize the collective consciousness, our ability to connect to each other's thoughts, feelings, cultures, and spirituality.
