came up with an interesting hypothesis when he worked with the National
Aeronautics and Space Administration.
He suggested the existence of “a complex entity involving the Earth's
biosphere, atmosphere, oceans, and soil; the totality constituting a feedback
or cybernetic system which seeks an optimal physical and chemical environment
for life on this planet."
became known as the “Gaia” hypotheses after the goddess of earth from Greek
mythology. Perhaps we more often refer
to Gaia as Mother Nature.
|Some say humans
are using and abusing Gaia. I wonder if Gaia is using us to maximize her
influence and productivity.
