TEILHARD DE CHARDIN’S QUOTE
"It’s pure joy to give oneself totally to something you believe in."
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) a Jesuit priest, a geologist and a paleontologist, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) was above all a tireless researcher. He is one of the first to have offered an evolutionary synthesis of the History of the Universe and of Life as it is explained to us today by the scientific community, and to have extended it to a Christian religious dimension.
His vision of the world, presented among other things in his posthumous work "The Human Phenomenon", is conceived around the central theme of evolution: evolution as the rise of complexity that supports consciousness with the hypothesis of a convergence into an 'Omega' point, the Universal Christ or St. Paul's Cosmic. In particular, he developed the concept of the "noosphere", the Earth's thinking envelope, and explained the current phenomenon of planetarization.
