A User's Guide for Planet Earth: Fundamentals of Environmental Science provides students with an exploration of the fundamental components of Earth's environmental systems, their interactions, and the way society affects and is affected by alterations in climate, ecosystems, hydrology, and various additional factors. The text distills essential environmental science concepts into an easy-to-understand and highly digestible textbook. The book begins by exploring several key background issues that lay the foundation for understanding the processes and drivers that control the behavior of the environment. It then delves into the main environmental systems of ecosystems, biogeochemical cycles, water, agriculture, oceans, human health, energy, and climate, culminating in a discussion of the Earth system. Students develop a fundamental understanding of how environmental processes are influenced by and can influence humans and broader society. In the revised second edition, population statistics, figures, captions, and research regarding global warming temperatures and carbon dioxide have been updated to reflect 2020 data. Additionally, COVID-19 within the context of environmental science is addressed. A User's Guide for Planet Earth is written for introductory environmental science courses. The clear, concise style of the text helps students grasp critical concepts without any prerequisite requirements. Dork Sahagian is an internationally recognized Earth and environmental scientist and shared Nobel Peace Prize winner. He earned his Ph.D. in geophysics from the University of Chicago and M.S. in geosciences at Rutgers, after earning his B.S. in physics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Dr. Sahagian served as executive director of The Global Analysis, Integration, and Modeling Task Force for the International Geosphere Biosphere Program at the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space at the University of New Hampshire before moving to Lehigh University to direct the Environmental Initiative, as well as develop and teach the introductory course in environmental science. Professor Sahagian's areas of research include paleoclimatology, volcanology, global change, stratigraphy, geodynamics and tectonics, hydrology, sea level changes, and the myriad ways in which society interacts with the natural environment. Part of his research led him to coauthor the pivotal reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which was jointly awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with former vice president Al Gore.

Soul Guide on Planet Earth

Soul Guide on Planet Earth

This is the true nature of our soul. However, life on this planet for a man is organized in such a way that it takes place in the great oblivion of consciousness about his divine soul, and on trying out all the opposites.

A completely new review of the soul is now derived from a common inheritance of the ancient heritage and mysticism, as well as the personal experiences of the author. The divine Absolute as everything-that-is expresses itself as the everything-that-can-be. It does so by means of the process of individuation. The first individuation of the awareness of the Absolute itself is the monad of consciousness known to us as the soul. Souls are monads of the consciousness of the divine Absolute, its individual emanation or manifesting. These monads of the divine consciousness or souls create all the potential life forms in order to be able to express all the potentials of the divine Absolute. They create cosmos and all the life in it. Every soul individualizes further so as to experience all the possibilities of life in a finer and more accurate way. The final or the finishing individuation of the awareness of the soul takes place in the shape of man's being and life. Individual souls get incarnated and begin to gather various impressions while going through the drama of life in Earth and the consciousness of those impressions they bring back to the divine Absolute as the awareness of the very existence, as its awareness of itself. At the end of the reincarnation cycle, once they have learnt the very meaning of the existence, souls go back to its source, to what they actually are, to the divine Absolute, although this is what they have been all along during the course of their illusory existence, for nothing at all is possible outside the divine Absolute. Everything is merely it itself. In the soul of man this knowing is manifested in its strongest and purest way. A completely new review of the soul is now derived from a common inheritance of the ancient heritage and mysticism, as well as the personal experiences of the author, the practice of hypnotic regression and discoveries of quantum physics that only in the presence of a conscious observer - the soul - the matter takes a form of a physical reality as it is known to us. All the activities of the soul that have an impact on man's life, from life-saving interventions of the soul events in everyday life, inspiration to the spiritual work and creativity that is the basis of human civilization. Souls as the carriers of intelligent design in nature. Communication between the mind and the soul. A detailed description of the reasons for obsession as a "loss of soul." The evil in the world and the goodness of the soul. Self-realization, resurrection or enlightenment as the knowledge of the divine nature of the soul while still in the body. The discipline of meditation as a practice of self-realization of the soul. CONTENTS: The origin, or where we come from The manifestation of everything through seven phases or proportions Manifestation of everything through five dimensions Human body as the foundation of personality The dual nature of the emanation of God: the oblivion and the awakening Organic life as the foundation of the human body Human body as the foundation of personality The complete personality as the foundation of the soul The organic world as the stage for the drama of the personality Personality as the personification of the Divine Divine as the foundation of the soul The presence of the Divine as a testimony The mechanical manifestation of the organic world The manifestation of the organic world as the basis for consciousness The circle of creation: inorganic world, organic world and man On the incarnations of souls before the organic life on Earth The division of souls: the young, developed and highly developed Soul being born in a body ...and a lot more.

Welcome to Planet Earth

Welcome to Planet Earth

At this time in the development of the Earth species, the brain/mind does not have a large enough data acquisition and computing capacity to take in the multidimensions of the walk-in process.

At this time in the development of the Earth species, the brain/mind does not have a large enough data acquisition and computing capacity to take in the multidimensions of the walk-in process. The characteristics of these dimensions would allow for many types of spirit activity on the Earth plane beyond the simple (actually, simplistic) explanation of a single soul unit changing places with another single soul. Spirit and consciousness are more fluid and variable than your world has considered. We will tell you that spirit guides and guardian angels surround everyone who is participating in these expanded spirit processes. The increasing number of walk-ins at this time is in service to the ascension, or step up in consciousness, of the species. These participants can always call on guides for assistance. We Pleiadians are guides in the project. We are always available and we wish you peace. -- The Pleiadian Light
