Is there a word like Gaia, but to refer to the people of the world rather than the entire biosphere?
It might be the "Human Race" or the "Human Species", but I am thinking in conceptual terms or identity. Tribes almost always have a term meaning "the people". Humans need to start thinking about the survival of the human species as a goal. We would probably need a term other than "human species" as part of the concept.
Maybe I'll try to make one up, but it would be far better if I could use an existing word with useful connotations. T'anks, M
