Vessel of the Noosphere
Object / Concept
The vessel of nooshere is the attempt to get a physical echo of persons, to consolidate a memory of man in form.
Noo, after the ancient Greek νοῦς nous, means spirit/ mind.
The concept of noosphere was coined at the beginning of the 20th century by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, the scientist Vladimir Ivanovich Vernadsky and Édouard Le Roy. According to their theories it represents the third sphere in the development of the world.
1. geosphere, the inanimate matter
2. biosphere, the biological life
3. noosphere, the thought
According to physicist Frank J. Tipler, humanity as a biological species will die out in the long run. However, it will store and archive its entire culture and its complete information content.
Combined with technological developments such as VirtualReality and quantum computers, this offers the possibility of virtual life simulation - a simulation in which each (then perfected) human being is resurrected in a virtual universe.
The possibilities of the future information processing of our cosmic children will be so enormous that all only conceivable, in itself contradiction-free universes will be perfectly simulated and these emulations will be identical with the reality.
If our consciousness is stored and exists beyond our death in virtual eternity, the question arises as to the place of storage of these post-humans. The noosphere represents an emergent state of our technology; there will still be physical containers for its underlying technology. Conceivably, these post-humans would exist only on mass storage devices of super-computers. Data centers would house thousands of humans simultaneously, there would be no differentiation by their "real" appearance.
The vessel of the noosphere is created in dependence on the personal characteristics of a person.
The outer form is formed by a basic framework. This is defined by several rings which stand for the different characteristics of a person. Information such as DNA, fingerprint, eye color, but also private events deform these rings with the help of an algorithm.
These deformations, which depend on the individual, create a unique form for each person.
