A new, interdisciplinary paradigm, embracing the sciences and history, reveals a fundamentally biological universe that is also stabilized by life. Life is an all powerful physical law.


The Earth has a myriad of characteristics typical of a living entity. The Earth is much more dynamic than theorized, and life maintains its dynamics, electrical environment, and magnetic field. The Earth is comprised of a system of fields maintained by life, and so, this new model is referred to as the Field-dynamical Earth Model (FEM), our living Earth. There are many problems with our current model of the Earth that this new model resolves. From the quantum level up to the planetary scale, life creates stability. Much of the entropy (disorder, decay and randomness) on Earth, including our own bodies, is the result of a lack of abundance and diversity of life. Evolution is not the result of competition between species, or "survival of the fittest," as suggested by Darwin, but rather, the result of genetic mutation caused by ionizing radiation and other factors. The dinosaurs did not become extinct as a result of a comet or asteroid impact, but by planetary destabilization and ionizing radiation emanating from the Earth itself. Much, much more is explored in this volume, yielding a whole new paradigm, and world view. Throughout both volumes the conclusions are clear, life has dominion over the Cosmos, and we need a new mindset in our exploration of it. The most important direction for humanity is to understand that the care and nurturing--love-- of life is of the utmost importance if we want a world filled with peace and plenty. The book In Defense of Nature reveals the prehistory and history of human interaction with the Living Earth and Cosmos, disclosing the unrest and destabilization when we do not know of life's paramount importance.

What I've Been Waiting and Hoping For -- Bonanza! Review by Robert Johnson, Chandler, Arizona

"Awesome and enlightening! I have read both volumes of The Vital Vastness. They both were powerful and inspiring. And both were written creatively and with authority. Just about every topic imaginable was covered. I was surprised at what I discovered and became convinced quickly as I read. Written for both the average reader and scientist was interesting and added credibility. While the book's size appears someone lengthy, it was just right when considering you can skip over scientific terminology which was italicized and placed in parentheses. And considering that the book brings forth a truly complete explanation for the workings of the cosmos, and reviews each of the modern theories and how they fit in or don't fit in, the size was appropriate. I cannot wait for the forthcoming title by this author, In Defense of Nature... Let me know when it becomes available. I highly recommend this author's titles, and would like to review his third book. The two I read were pure genius. I feel enlightened. Five stars!" (Posted on 9/30/2013)

I enjoyed reading your books, especially the way that you write. Intriguing! It has taken nearly forty years to establish the idea that the Earth system is self-regulating and during that time conventional science was sure that the Earth was not self-regulating. So, like me, you will have to be patient (Posted on 9/30/2013)

A jewel of the human intellect! Stephen Hawking move over there's a new theoretical genius. This book, both volumes, is so all encompassing in its scope it leaves one breathless. To take so many different sciences and weave them into a new fabric of reality is astonishing. There are answers to so many questions in science today that have left scientists baffled. It covers the earth sciences, astronomy, deep ecology, physics, environmental issues, evolution, extinction, tektites, unusual meteorites, life's ability to transcend entropy, and so much more. Of particular interest is a new model of the Earth that resolves the shortcomings of present theories. New theories on black holes, galaxies, the planets, comets, and so on are included. The dinosaurs really became extinct due to ionizing radiation, not the proposed impact. Planets and galaxies actually eject objects. This review could not possibly do justice to this masterpiece. Moreover, it is uniquely written to be accessible to both the scientifically minded and the layperson who is not so scientifically inclined. Buy it or at least read it, get your library to put in their collection. Five stars! (Posted on 9/30/2013)

"I recently purchased all three of the books and I am nearly finished with the first book. I have to say that I am blown away by these insights and ideas. I can’t read them fast enough! In many ways these ideas always seemed intuitive to me and they just seemed “right” when you present the research. These books have inspired me to change my curriculum so that I will teach the science disciplines (Earth/Space, Biology and Physical science for 8th grade) more holistically. I can’t wait to connect the structure of the Sun to ecology, chemistry, earthquakes, thunderstorms, radiation, ions, etc. These ideas have finally given me a way to make every discipline of science relevant and meaningful to students who would normally think that science is only for people who go to college. My goal is for them to see how every action has a consequence on some level and that every field of science is related by causal events." Evan Camp, Science Teacher, Indiana (Posted on 2/13/2013)
