What Cosmobiology Is

Cosmobiology is the study of the possible correlations between the cosmos and organic life. It is a scientific discipline and therefore adheres to the principles of developing theories, predicting an outcome and ensuring that any results obtained are measurable and repeatable. This is the foundation that Ebertin developed the system on and his work to this day remains the basis from which all current and future investigative work continues to be drawn from.

There is a lot of debate between cosmobiologists and the scientific community in general as to whether cosmobiology is a scientific discipline. I will have that discussion, supported by very good arguments as to why it is in a future post, but for now the following is a good basic way of understanding how it works.

 

Axial TiltA simple way of approaching how cosmobiology can assist in understanding the relationship between the cosmos and organic life is to understand the simple concept of seasons on Earth. Our Earth orbits the sun once each year, however our Earth tilts by around 23.4 degrees in relation to the path of it's orbit. Due to this tilt the Earth has it's seasons. In the northern hemisphere when it is closest in its orientation to the sun the northern hemisphere experiences its summer while at the same time the southern hemisphere experiences its winter being oriented away from the sun. The reverse occurs when the sourthern hemisphere is oriented towards the sun.

There are four important points in the yearly cycle of the Earth around the sun. When the lower half of the Earth is oriented closest to the sun the maximum point of that travel is known as a solstice point. This occurs generally on or about December 21 each year and is known as the summer solstice in the southern hemisphere and the winter solstice in the norther hemisphere. The reverse applys 6 months later when the northern hemisphere is oriented towards to the sun and this becomes the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere and the winter solstice in the southern hemisphere. This occurs generally on or about June 21 each year.

There are two other points that are also important. They are when the northern and southern hemispheres of Earth are oriented equally towards the sun. These are known as the equinoxes and they occur generally on or about March 21 and September 21 each year.

It is undeniable the effect the seasons have upon organic life on Earth. Produce is planted, grown and harvested according to this cycle; plant life blooms during the warmer periods and takes measures such as shedding leaves during the colder periods in order to conserve energy; animals will shed fur during warm periods in order to stay cool and grow more in preparation for the cooler periods to stay warm. Virtually all life on Earth is governed to some extent by what occurs seasonally which can be directly attributed to earth's relationship to the cosmos.

From here we can go a step further and start to look beyond our earth and its relationship to the sun. Probably the next logical body to look to would be our moon. It is easily seen, and it too has a cycle. We watch it transform each month from barely visible in the sky into a beautiful white glowing sphere and then it fades again to once more become invisible and the cycle repeats itself.

It is scientific fact that the combined interaction of both the sun and moon cause tidal changes to occur to our oceans. The combined position and orientation of the two bodies along with known attributes of locations on Earth, such as coastlines and ocean depth enable scientists to accurately predict the time and intensity of tides in a given location. The moon also has an effect upon the atmosphere and again depending upon its orientation will cause atmospheric tides also which in turn can have an impact upon the weather experienced on Earth. The gravitational effect of the moon will pull both the ocean and the atmosphere towards it. It is possible that the sea can rise by up to a metre or more with the effect of the moon's gravitational pull, and the atmosphere can bulge closer to the moon by several kilometres.

Everything mentioned here is in science textbooks and is actively studied by scientists today. Cosmobiology goes further than that and investigates the effect of the entire solar system and beyond upon organic life. If if is possible for the the sun and moon to so dramatically influence our lives on Earth is it then possible for the entire solar system to affect us? Is it possible that the astrologers of milenia gone by were in fact correct and did identify that the entire cosmos impacts our lives? Most scientists believe not. They believe that because the planets in our solar system are so far from the sun and our Earth that the gravitational impact upon organic life on our planet would be negligible. The principles of cosmobiology on the other hand suggest otherwise and it is these principles that I will discuss in depth throughout this site and give working examples.
