Global Brain is a concept used to describe and understand the distributed and self-organizing intelligence currently emerging from all people and information-communication technologies (ICT) connected via the Internet. This network in its future form could be more intelligent and coherent than the current structure of the Internet with the capability to coordinate all necessary functional operations of human civilization. Such a system would represent a qualitatively new level of complexity and organization which would allow humans to solve planetary problems that cannot be solved by our highest contemporary controls. Thus, in a Global Brain metasystem the human possibility space would allow levels of freedom and opportunity which have never existed in evolutionary history.
