Phenomenon of Man 250
Cover of the 1955 book The Phenomenon of Man with the omega symbol Ω shown prominently on the cover.
In religious thermodynamics, omega point is a hypothetical point in future time in which human minds would unite in a type of universal consciousness. The theory was conceived in circa 1938 by French religiosity philosopher Pierre Teilhard. The following circa 1950 quote by Teilhard alludes to the idea of omega point: [1]

“It is a mistake to look for the extension of our being or of the noosphere in the impersonal. The future universe could not be anything else but the hyper-personal at the omega point.”

The theory was conceived based on mixture of evolution, second law tendencies, and religious eschatology. The basic position of Teilhard, supposedly, was that the earth will die as result of entropy; the omega point, therefore, must somehow be autonomous from this effect. [2] In 1994, American physicist Frank Tipler used Teilhard’s omega point theory in his negentropic promise of immortality, based on some type of future computer. [3]

The Exorcist
The inspiration behind the character of Father Merrin, in the best seller 1971 book The Exorcist, was Pierre Teilhard; and parts of the plot were themed on Teilhard’s theory of evil (or the existence of Satan) in the world possibly being Lucifer [or matter-energy spirit] working out his [or its] salvation through the process of physical evolution ending in Teilhard’s omega point.
