It has to be watched along with the narrated version. It says the Industrial Revolution started in England then spread elsewhere.

It looks this video overlaid current telecommunications networks on a three-dimensional model, rather than showing historical development. It is strange the way that it suggests everything originated in England.

Nice video. I think welcome to the Noosphere would be a better title as it depicts the new sphere on earth caused by human mind and activity.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
