Noogesis and the mind

05 Jul

Noogenesis as a process of formation and evolution of the human mind is a term coined by the philosopher and anthropologist Teilhard Chardin in his book “The human phenomenon”, the earth had already passed through the pre-Cambrian era of the geological formation of the Geosphere and the formation of unicellular life, the Biosfera of multicellular until the appearance of animals from the Mezozoic era whose last period is the Jurassic known for the cinematographic fantasies of dinosaurs.

This juvenile land, as Teilhard Chardin calls it, is followed by the Cenozoic period, where an event called K-T (Cretaceous-Tertiary) took place, which was a mass extinction that altered the Earth’s biodiversity, approximately 65.5 million years ago. , and which altered Earth’s biodiversity with the extinction of large animals such as dinosaurs and giant reptiles.

This is how Chardin describes it: “the cell, the natural grain of life, just as the atom is the natural grain of unorganized Matter. It is blindly the cell that we have to try to understand if we want to assess what the Life Step specifically consists of.” (CHARDIN, p. 84).

Even without knowing “the limits of relativistic physics”, Chadin explains our diversity based on it: “I must recognize that the consideration of a dimensional medium where Space and Time organically combine is the only means that we have found so far to explain the distribution of substances material and living around us” (CHARDIN, p. 87).

It was Alexei Eryomin, in his monograph Noogénesis and the Theory of Intelligence, who updated the concept of noogenesis: “it is the process of developing intellectual systems and implanting them in space over time” (Enyomin, 2022), a concept that did not is contradictory to Chardin, as quoted above.

Thus Enyomin will plot the velocity across the membrane of a unicellular organism (from 10 degrees meters per second), through the cytoplasm (2-10 to -5 degrees per second), from the multicellular organism (0.05 meters per second) to the impulse of human nerve cells (100 meters per second, quantum-electronic connections within a population, and we arrive in the world made as a human artifact where the speed of waves, electric currents, lights, video or opto-electronics reach 3×10 at 8 degrees per second). second (image).

Understanding biogenesis, as a certain sequence of regular, interrelated transformations in spatio-temporal processes helps us to understand life and also human origin without abolishing the spiritual-metaphysical aspect that it involves.
