Biosphere? Sounds pretty Greek to me!
Actually, we are living in it! So that would be like saying you didn’t know you slept in a bed while in your bedroom. There are other spheres too.
The most obvious one is Atmosphere (Air), but there is also the lowest portion of atmosphere: Troposphere (click for my artistic interpretation of it); and the Stratosphere (just above the Troposphere), as well as the Hydrosphere (Ocean) and Lithosphere (Earth’s crust).
“Man’s life is laid in the loom of time
To a pattern he does not see”
This ‘Quadrilogue of Visionaries’ spoke with much enthusiasm, and greatly inspired the audience. The event was sponsored by the Network Review.
JOHN P ALLEN
“The term “biosphere” was coined by geologist Eduard Seuss in 1875, which he defined as:
The place on earth’s surface where life dwells.
Ecology is the science of the biosphere. It is an interdisciplinary concept for integrating astronomy, geophysics, meteorology, biogeography, evolution, geology, geochemistry, hydrology and, generally speaking, all life and earth sciences.
Serious debate on what to do about global warming can no longer be postponed.
An understanding of Vladimir I. Vernadsky’s work on the biosphere and noösphere is absolutely central to such conversations.
“Vernadsky can justly be called the founder of biospherics.”
—John Allen Inventor of Biosphere 2 Project, Chairman, Global Ecotechnics
JOHN P ALLEN at Biosphere and Consciousness Conference, October Gallery, London. Saturday 14th May, 2011.
The symposium begins with the chair introducing ‘A Quadrilogue of visionaries’. John P. Allen, Ralph Metzger, Amanda Fielding and Bernard Carr. The event is sponsored by the network review.
John P Allen is an Explorer, author, playwright and adventurer. He started the RV Hericlitus (considered the greatest floating art installation in the world, named after Heraclitus ‘the weeping philosopher’) and is the Inventor of the awesome BIOSPHERE 2. (The largest self-sustaining closed ecological system ever made).
Gives a passionate call to reawaken to the beauty of our peerless home, Biosphere 1, the Earth.

Then thus replied the prophetess divine:

….Gangs of organised people operate 100s of 1000s of dollars of an underground economic system supplying these substances. There was the case with alcohol suppression—but its prestige in use soared. Something about consciousness and Biospherics arouses great opposition by the masters who serve the status quo. The American state found it necessary to jail opposition to the War. In late 1960s, the American and European intelligentsia, and others, experimented at expanding their consciousness. They quickly found that moving out of heavy Technospheric regions into less disturbed Biospheric areas, and minimising possessions and maximising consciousness, they became subject to harassment and jail, and any political position on protecting Biosphere’s existence they espoused and their cutting back on the profits
Many European states found this example of American State, found this control mechanism useful to their system, as they were experiencing opposition to many of their policies, especially the technical implementation of the world market system and the maximisation of corporations; the quick destruction of competition from traditional agriculture systems and traditional crafts. Hundreds and billions of economic refugees abandoned their employment and flooded the city. New research into the expanding capacity to produce new phenomenon. There was a tremendous capacity for anyone studying their bodies and perception when taking DMT, and many other including LSD. They were outlawed in this tidal wave of publicity. Even Coca, used by some societies to cope with conditions like high altitude and jungles, were outlawed. Military trained in Vietnam were sent to smash traditional peaceful tribes and their ancient allies with plants; Land of course coveted by Technosphere’s oil and or other mining production.
States controlled by the world market’s ceaseless drive to maximise profits, also spent billions of dollars pushing patented pharmaceuticals, while only recommended a low vitamin diet. Practically all intelligent, educated and sceptical people, who must be highly conscious, used them to create their physical, mental and emotional alertness.
The sale of cheap fat was pushed to such an extreme, that fat is now the major cause of bodily disease in America. Fat slows down the reaction of a human being to swing into action. Makes it harder for people to get into the countryside, and walking if off. Excess remains totally in you.
In short, the cybersphere needs bodies of humans with extraordinary cognition. Generators of higher energies such as consciousness and creativity; the origin based and effectively created and maintained Ethnosphere, Technosphere and Noosphere; evolutionary crowned in the Biosphere; and its helpless victims in the predatory world markets. Fortunately sleep and dreams remain not fully cognised. Slips of tongues, dosing Dancing feet, allow momentary flashes of consciousness—remembrances of the Biosphere.
Objective architecture and art, by advertising and coercion, search towards and encounters somebody who encounters someone who transmits knowledge of Biosphere by sound, molecule, motion, gesture and emotion.
Talks about chaotic perceptual interventions cause an increase in consciousness, concentration and meditation. The reciprocal relationship of the Cybersphere to Biosphere, and Ethnosphere of human culture.
Brownowski became conscious of Biosphere through a vision he received. And wondered if life is a cosmic consciousness—a cosmic phenomenon.
The Technosphere and its prefatory market, Fortunately, human beings remain fully cognate. Momentary flashes, glimpses of the Biosphere, Objective architecture, exploration of consciousness and biosphere, by advertising and coercion,
Chaos (χάος) exists in and all the spheres, despite Capitalisms cunning efforts to colonise all the sphere, And grateful for Quantum integral, direct perception of phenomena from one body to another.
Ancient Greeks saw that Chaos-Cosmos (κόσμος )-Chaos checks raw materials from different levels of organisations or pays out anything to microcosmos-specific human bodies—with Biosphere at the centre. Consciousness can hold it all together till it harmonises. The scientist can see the the human can go step and one step twice, because form and flux co-exist. He insist that humans must comprehend time and space closely, and space-time.
THE GREEKS CALLED THE HUMAN BODY THE FORM DIVINE. Because its restless blissful phenomena carries all secrets.
THEY revered a naked human BODY AS THE QUINTESSENCE OF BIOSPHERIC EVOLUTION…Nakedly EXERCISED AND ANALYSED.
Egyptians first concluded that Noosphere, but not on a scientific basis, that sphinx represents the emotional, intellectual and instinctive levels, but the Greek DESTINY saw the human body …the human body is a totality, that contains consciousness that can comprehend anything in the cosmos and biosphere. But the Greeks adopted the body as the force of knowledge, and their cosmology, they decided LOGOS and not Cosmos and the city state and not the Individual
Plato rather Hippocrates.
Computer savvy scientists now shark the Noosphere’s intellect,
‘We are already all ONE!’ in synaesthesia. Remain hostile to new tastes and smells. But these specialists of the functional aspects of the human don’t become conscious enough to use the Biosphere in the human body by means of quantum entanglement and comprehensive proof. Let me recall that wonderful Greek narrative about history. APHRODITE, Biosphere born in the ocean waves that lap upon the beech, is married to Hephaestus—the Technosphere. The Technosphere is conquered by the Ethnosphere’s fatal invention, Ares needs war. This archetype ceases by its narrative to supply that rapidly increases Raw materials, that includes most importantly, Human Bodies. Hephaestus retires, contemplates, then invents a golden web to throw over the unholy union of life and war. All the archetypes [Gods] gather to lament this unholy union of life and war which Hephaestus holds together with Gold world market and financial capitalism. Financial Capitalism lives by extorting ever increasing profits including human bodies, biospheres and cyberspheres. Now cybersphere and biosphere are almost totally enslaved to the world market.
The year I was born, 1929, the first absolute world depression involved 2bn humans, now there are 7bn and heading towards 10-15 billion towards the end of this century: All now fated to be degraded to commodity production. Biosphere’s forces are abandoned to barren wastelands.
The market maximises undreamed of profits, land destroying multitudes of the biosphere’s life-forms. Naturally realms of super profits and corporate ultra power; any consciousness perceptions of phenomenon that reveal this objectively terrifying situation—the outlawing of consciousness raising substances, together with the censoring of total biospheric thought, represents a clear and present danger to their Imperium. because only the large scale expansion of biospheric phenomenon, could find away of GLOBAL TEC’S exploitation of NOOSPHERE’S specialists and billions of human workers.
Global Technoos 1967-68 Global Event! Defining and taking, making a way out, occurred when consciousness perceptions increased in power and scope.
Lastly, a key example of the existential union of consciousness and Biospheres.
BIOSPHERE 2 seized and shut down as a remedial establishment, a source of disruption, in1994 when the American establishment, led by Columbia University, at first seized control of the facility, and then totally destroyed its high production agricultural soil. Environment non-scientist, oversaw and eco-systems, of the lowest level of ecological return, replaced this bioregion biosphere, as primary research area. Studies of CO2 replaced studying total atmosphere composition. And why? If you are a chemist, you know why. There are millions of chemicals out there and increasing. At the same
At the same time research on substances increased perceptual ability was almost completely shut down by whipped-up hatred. Perceptions arise from synthesis of emissions, sensations, emotions, common sense, incorporeal Imagination, memory and reason. We have a tremendous ability to interpret that stuff.
The entire body must be educated to evolve with the increased being of consciousness.
Perceptual education is seriously neglected and respite it here on planet earth.
Explorers of inner space are usually harassed or condemned by the market carries who are there to prevent inner space travel….
He says fat is a major problem in society, because it prevents people from being able to swing into new actions and re-actions.
Human beings do have extra ordinary powers of cognition which must be developed and encouraged.
Humans exploring outer and inner space—Biosphere consciousness—outer and inner space-craft.
The way out is for human beings to transform their perceptual operations and apparatus.
Forming perceptual orientation—a critical mass of consciousness—could change reality—at first here and there in history doubtless in brief flashes—1967 Burning man, the great rave culture—BIOSPHERE 2, showed the amazing possibilities of synergising Biosphere Consciousness and Society—the world with its military and economic oil crisis, reveals gigantic contradictions of destructiveness.
In any case, Developing consciousnesses of human personality could be done—the almost magical possibilities because here and there daring humans have realised the threat. The cracks and danger in the system cannot be hidden…and even break through the headlines of mass media and even tweeters–.the dangerous and dramatic situation—a new historic period—biosphere consciousness is arising here and there in the world market with their armies and might—the real time play to catch conscious evasion. Maybe we no longer have to stand transfixed as Industry plays out the tragedy…of Hamlet—who would not act, who would not act….though he had cause…<<his voice starts to falter>> We need someone to deal with the kingdom’s take over <<he is now sobbing>>>
