Ontology and the Noosphere

21 Jun

Both intramundane and extramundane realities, and the latter exist can be interpreted differently, as as the Moebius curve (picture) it has only one side, the perspective of being internal or external depends on the observer, and both of the Noosphere.

We are immersed in a noosphere where the spirit is the set of contradictions that we live, the great human manifestations of faith, of cultures and politics are nothing other than the worldly manifestations of realities also extra world, and both depends on the world view that each group of this time, and all underline these visions.

To deny that there is a sphere of the mind or mind, the noon-sphere is to deny the reasons that are not avowedly confessed of these visions, either by difficulties of expressing them or because one wishes to conceal a part of the truth of what is really thought of these ” spheres “.

The first volume of the Peter Sloterdijk Bubbles Spheres trilogy, the only one translated into Portuguese yet, offers a philosophical-existential view of this question, the “intimate spaces” of man from the relations with his surroundings, that is, the next next are the people or the readings and information with which each personal view relates. Sloterdijk starts from a very sensitive analysis that is the mother-child duality, as originating and first relation with an inherent duality, the fetus is still intra-world uterus and the baby will already be an extraterrestrial world, the process of growth is to abandon this initial bubble.

This, in the more comfortable spaces of seeking autonomy, is a complex journey insofar as leaving a sphere that is always intimate, leaving the family, the country or in a wider way of the planet itself, one always goes to a sphere unknown.

In biblical terms, Jesus, after asking what “men” said to be him, asks the intimate question to the apostles in Luke 9:20: “And who do you say that I am?”, This is without a doubt the question that should be done with every religious worldview today.

There will be two equally incomplete answers to that of an intra worldly vision and that of another extra worldly vision, Teilhard de Chardin’s vision of the Noosphere, the two are partly correct, but both are lacking in the other, ontological terms, missing the Other.

The commandment “love thy neighbor” also refers to both, for it is “as unto itself.”
