Definition: Nooshpere (pronounced: NOH-uh-sfeer); French; noun
1. The sum of human thought, knowledge, and culture.
Why I love this word:
The noosphere is a concept used by Vladimir Vernadsky and Teilhard de Chardin to explain the "sphere of human thought." This word defines that life on Earth is a unity constituting a whole system known as the biosphere; and that the mind or consciousness of life, the Earth’s thinking layer, constitutes a unity that is discontinuous but coextensive with the entire system of life on Earth.
