“Mind-sphere” or Earth’s mental sheathe, created by humanity, will define the inevitable next stage of terrestrial evolution, which will subsume and transform the biosphere.
Scientific methods of predicting evolved from the concepts of evolution of Planet, life, Earth as from past it develops from material to more mobile state (minerals-biosphere) to probably absolutely mobile freedom mind and consciousness. The prediction could be true in terms of interconnection between people, mind-sphere, e.g. Internet, but we could not yet understand how Noosphere is reconstructing and changing biosphere into a new planet state. Also the scientists evaluated this transition from biosphere to Noosphere in a very optimistic way, while we do not know the possible consequences yet.
