Is The Omega Point The Final Destination
Of  The Human Mind?

Part 6 - Part 5

The Omega Point - Beginning To End

The Omega Point is the opposite of inanimate matter. It is Intelligent Consciousness. The source of all knowledge.

Alpha is the beginning of the universe Omega is the final state of creation

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin employed the Greek letters Alpha and Omega to denote the absolute beginning of Evolution, and it's culminating end destination.

According to Pierre Alpha represents the beginning of the Universe. The well-spring of the afore mentioned subatomic particles.

Omega is the ultimate State Of Creation.

Pierre designated this Ultimate State of Creation, the Center of Centers. One single point, where all forms of Consciousness has Converged.

Separate personalities - you and me - comprising the Noosphere, are the Centers. We become autonomous points, or components, constituting a whole. As electrons orbit the nucleus of an atom.

 Converging, but not merging. Each Center is enhanced and distinct. In similar fashion as the parts that compose a machine, are converged, yet distinct.

Scientific Treatment Beyond Reproach

This author's interpretation of Pierre Teilhard's Thinking, is he believed that the Omega Point is the embrace of God. That the ultimate objective of Evolution is where Consciousness meets with the source of Intelligence. In other words Consciousness converges upon itself.

Chardin applied himself  diligently to truth seeking

With his open Mind however, Pierre would quite likely have agreed with the 17th century Dutch Philosopher, Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677) who firmly believed that there is no distinction between God and Nature.

The confronting concept of converging Consciousness is indeed Thought evoking. It is again Metaphysically sound. Nature and Evolution, are positioned to attain this concept, but to make further progress, our direct involvement is required.

Pierre made many a courageous exertion to reconcile his Scientific Thinking, with his religious dogma.

Nonetheless, to his credit, whether right or wrong, in his conclusions, he freely admitted that the linking of the two, goes beyond phenomenology.

This type of frank admission demands great strength of Character. and engenders Confidence in another's perception of him being foremost a Truth Seeker.


Humans generally have intense difficultly wrapping their Minds around most concepts in Metaphysics. And yet more difficulty, changing their Mind, once a concept is accepted. Even when presented with new Knowledge.

This difficulty can be addressed by maintaining an Open Mind, focusing on comprehension of a given subject. Opinion is important, but not necessarily fact, however, fact often originates in opinion.

In particular - Reflection based opinion

Even in the strictest, most precise Scientific Disciplines we witness a great deal of conjecture before Truth is arrived at. This author believes de Chardin applied himself diligently to Truth Seeking.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's Scientific Attitude to Metaphysical dimensions is beyond reproach

Conscious Noosphere First

Whilst this author concurs with Pierre's Thinking on the construction of the Noosphere, he diverges a little from Pierre's train of Thought on the Omega Point.

This author's conclusion is that with an estimated several hundred billion Galaxies populating the known Universe, there is a reasonable possibility that - intelligent - Life exists elsewhere. If so, then that life must be factored into the equation.

Contemplation leads one to hypothesise that the Omega Point is reached after the Noosphere has evolved to be a cephalized, Conscious Entity.

A Conscious Entity equipped with sensory organs enabling it to be all knowing. It would also be equipped with the capability of communicating with other Noospheres in the Universe that have attained the same, or greater, levels of Evolution.

Nothing To Fear

There will be absolutely nothing to fear from these other Noospheres.There is good reason to believe this will be so.

Other noospheres will be peace seekers

If we are indeed mirroring Truth here, a fully Conscious Noosphere can only come into existence via a flexible consensus of highly developed, moral, reflective Minds.

A consensus of developing Minds demonstrating a Right Thinking Attitude that encourages a morally acceptable Reality, which, in turn, leads to Sharing and Equality.

Otherwise known as Peace and Prosperity

Considering this and Humanities current state of Metaphysical Progress, we have quite a way to go. But it offers at least a tentative guarantee that other Noospheres, if they exist, will be Peace Seekers.

Bane Of Healthy Society

Apart from a brief treatment in the appendix of his book, Chardin does not examine the role evil plays.

The emphasis on the moral aspect of Life and Reality rests entirely with this author.

He believes it needs mentioning because evil is the bane of all Healthy Society. And it will not go away. Evil manifests itself in all Human activity, via Lower Plane Thinking.

Lower plane Thinking must be purposely exterminated, before the Noosphere can advance to Conscious Cephalization.

This is where our purposeful influence comes to the aid of Evolution.

Recurring Theme

A recurring theme in the short history of Humanity is that out of the multitudes who apply themselves to a given Discipline, it is the few who discover the Truth.

Truth is revealed to the diligent, dedicated, persistent searcher

Truth is revealed to the diligent, dedicated, persistent, searcher seeking to comprehend the Natural Law that underlies a particular  state or phenomenon. And who is prepared to pay the price asked by Nature in return for the answer. These two attitudes are almost always found together.

Comprehending the phenomenon of the Human Being and by extension Consciousness, may be the greatest scientific challenge that we will ever undertake.

Our Call

It is this author's considered Belief that this comprehension of self is not merely essential to Humanities progress per se, but it is directly related to the survival of that same Being.

 It is absolutely the Human Species Choice whether or not we collectively decide to reach the Omega Point. If Humanity does decide in the affirmative, that decision will add solid evidence indicating the existence of Free Will.

The Omega Point Rocks!
