Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881 - 1955) wiki

"Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, geologist, paleontologist and Jesuit priest, was above all a relentless researcher. He was one of the first to propose a synthesis of the History of the Universe as it is generally explained by present-day scientists. The vision he puts forward in his different writings, particularly in the Phenomenon of Man, is hinged on evolution. His outstanding concepts include the theory that the earth is enveloped in a layer of thought, which he calls the "noosphere", and his explanation of the planetisation phenomenon with which we are faced to-day. Throughout his career he remained an international scientist in contact with the Museum d’Histoire Naturelle which accommodates his Foundation." [1]
