Pierre Teilhard de Chardin


“Our duty, as men and women, is to proceed as if limits to our ability did not exist. We are collaborators in creation.”

“And what does that amount to if not (and it is quite credible) that the stuff of the universe, by becoming thinking, has not yet completed its evolutionary cycle, and that we are therefore moving forward towards some new critical point that lies ahead. In spite of its organic links, whose existence has everywhere become apparent to us, the biosphere has so far been no more than a network of divergent lines, free at their extremities. By effect of reflection and the recoils it involves, the loose ends have been tied up, and the noosphere-tends to constitute a single closed system in which each element sees, feels, desires and suffers for itself the same things as all the others at the same time.”
