The Story of the Noosphere explores eight noospheric conditions across four stages of humanity. The Modern era is the final stage in our series, starting from around the 7th century CE to today. In this period, we highlight the many technological advancements that have led to expanding our global network and interconnectedness, including modern trade routes, readily-accessible paper, globalization and newfound human interactions, and even space exploration. These feats of human possibility are a result of the noospheric evolutions of humanity’s past, giving us hope for the future development of the noosphere.
