- “Anatolius (De Decade, c.285) remarks that the Pythagoreans call the monad ‘nous’ (see: Nun) and liken it to the one itself (to heni auten), the intelligible god (to noeto theo), the uncreated (to agenneto), beauty itself (autokalo), the good itself (autoagatho), and—among the virtues—the wisdom (phronesei) of the one.”

- Nous (νόος) (NE:348) (intellect, reason)
- Thumos (θυμος) (NE:719) (passion)
- Epithumia (appetite, affection).
The term "thumos" (θυμος) (NE:719), a th-based term, of note, is a possible secret name of the word "myth", possibly defined such that the myths or mythology was an ancient way of describing the passions in story form, as a way of coded teaching, so to say.
- “Imagine, in one way or another, above the animal biosphere [Suess, 1875], a human sphere, a sphere of reflection, of conscious invention, of conscious souls, the ‘noosphere’, if you will.”
In 1928, Edouard Le Roy, an associate of Teilhard, in his The Origins of Humans: and the Evolution of Intelligence (§3: The Noosphere and Hominization), advanced ideas about the "noosphere" model in terms of what he called "hominisation".
