  39. 39. The time barrier We are not living in an information society, but in a « disinformation society » Classical economics assumed that actors were perfectly informed lucid and watchful. The basic assumption being false, the theory is not valid any more Desorientation is everywhere : Hyperchoice (Toffler), cognitive overload… and what about Gramsci’s cultural hegemony ? Magritte The therapist

  46. 46. Cloud The three functions (Dumezil) nowadays Creative destruction (capitalism) Protection of life (ecology)
  47. 47. The key question of foresight, which will be even more present in the coming decades, is the disruption of the equilibrium between nature and human species. The greenhouse effect, the reduction of biodiversity, the exhaustion of sea resources and the destruction of tropical rainforests impose behaviours opposite to the current watchwords of productivity, consumption and competition. If the Internet is intended to work as a planetary nervous system, is it able to become the base of a global consciousness of the whole human species, enough to reverse the regulations of its behaviours ?

  51. 51. Empathy, observed at neural level steps over the barrier between species (Lorentz, Lestel) New «  Valladolid controversy » : have animals a soul, and other living beings too? Empathy would be also the basis of collective beings : tribes, firms, NGO’s… and now virtual communities

  53. 53. Nature’s information inventions : The nervous system Music, danse, speech Vision Internet, global nervous system
  54. 54. The roots of the past :Tibernitus garden We are not made of matter Matter flows through our bodies ; identity stays Identity is made of communication processes Apoptosis : cellular suicide by lack of communication
  55. 55. Monet’s nymphéas Human beings are the follow up of the evolution of consciousness Consciousness raised from elementary to global, From the cell to the plant, then to the animal, then to humans… And soon to the whole biosphere
  56. 56. Earth seen from the sky The « struggle for life » vision (Spencer) shows only a small part of life, natural pruning. The essence of life is made of cooperation, symbiosis of cells, individuals, organisations, species This cooperation is made of information exchange flows, recognition and anticipation. It is the rise of consciousness.
  57. 57. « cosmic speculation garden » Spencer’s vision, the « struggle for life » inspired economic and political thinking since the industrial revolution (real politics, competitivity…) Facing the limits of the planet, maintaining this vision would lead to collapse (Jared Diamond) Thus, evolution of consciousness needs a great step forward
