For Pesce, the astounding growth of the internal linkNet over the last decade can mean only one thing: internal linkTeilhard’s   internal linknoosphere is striving to know itself. In the capstone address before a VRML World Movers conference, Pesce explained that the noosphere, having saturated the internal linkelectrical communication technologies of the pre-internal linkdigital age, has begun to turn inward, ingesting “all human knowledge and all human experience.” Using complexity-theory lingo, Pesce explained that sometime in the early 1990s, the internal linknetworked noosphere began an irreversible internal linkprocess of self-organization. “The first of its emergent properties was the World Wide Web, for it first internal linkconcrescence, Pesce pointed to the astronomical growth rate of the Web: “How else to explain a process that internal linkmagically began everywhere, all at once. across the length and breadth of the Internet?” He called this phenomenon “the Web that ate the Net,” and predicted that a similar transformation lies in the near future, when the Web will unfold into a three-dimensional cyberspace, courtesy of VRML or some other 3D Net protocol. “VRML is the porthole cut into the noosphere, the mirror which lets the seer see our self.”‘

“I’m not sure that I believe that the internal linkInternet physically exists. I don’t know about it. It’s invisible to me all of the internal linktime anyway.  I’m not sure that in fact it’s not simply a way that we’re all magically believing that we’re communicating with each other.”

 – Mark Pesce, creator of VRML, concluding a talk given at Esalen with internal linkTerence McKenna, 1998.
