In Schoch’s article he reports on observations made by his wife, Katie Ulissey, that the Sun seems to be aware of Earth’s position and avoids spewing major solar outbursts in our direction. He writes further that all stars exhibit odd behaviour, demonstrating a ‘will of their own.’ Over on my blog site, www.SolarAncestors.com , I have written often about the intimate connection between our Sun and our planet.
Early last century, the Jesuit priest/palaeontologist Pierre Tielhard de Chardin wrote about the consciousness of Earth that he called the Noosphere (‘nous’ is Greek for mind) — a global unity of consciousness, a 'thinking' sphere circling the Earth above the biosphere, which would comprise all human reflection, conscious souls, and love. This implies that humanity is an important component of the planetary consciousness. I am certain that consciousness of humankind does indeed affect both our planet and our star – but does that mean they rely on us, or would they be perfectly fulfilled even if we did not exist? The question is rhetorical and prompts us to think about where we are headed with modern technology, as well as our responsibilities as evolving conscious entities.
