Literally 'The Generation of (the tower of) Babel' (Ancient Hebrew).

The people of the world showed much achdut, as Genesis 11 shows, but their cause was a bit misdirected. While they worked as a tzibur, they did so to become as G-d and were therefore punished by being diseminated into the seventy nations of the world with their many tongues.

Ideas concerning the Tower of Babel and the disemination of ideas in cultures is well expounded in Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash.
