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."

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!" (from Amazon.com)
very impressive undertaking - congratulations." Dr. Michael

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.

Defense of Nature -- The History Nobody Told You About
"What I've Been Waiting and Hoping For -- Bonanza!
This work is history at its finest! I've always loved to read
about history, but this book is much more than just another
book, it is "the living monument to life," surely to
escalate to the greatest accomplishment for humanity of this
century. I was extremely surprised, delighted, and astounded. As
a previous librarian, and research scientist, I've never read a
book so deep in understanding, so interesting, and so complete.
In Defense of Nature-The History Nobody Told You About is
authoritatively written by a historian with knowledge of the
interdisciplinary sciences. How refreshing! This "book of
books" provides tremendous insight that other works
attempting to understand world and human history have failed to
provide. What really touch me, I mean, really enlightened me,
was to learn of the Ultimate Lesson of Humanity. I was inspired,
to say the very least, when Pasichnyk concludes with an
observation at the end of this masterpiece, in reference to
civilization: "Nature, hostile to all waste, tirelessly
reabsorbs the smallest remnants of anything which once lived and
uses them again to produce more life." What caused me to
shiver was the evidence he presents which substantiates the next
historical period for the cycles of life-renewal. We all know
what that means: overwhelming, historical evidence that IT's
coming up soon-the Big One! Yet, this masterpiece concludes on a
positive note, and brings hope to humanity. Pasichnyk boldly
ushers forth the ultimate condition that brings world peace-an
end to construction of buildings and bombs, the destruction of
wilderness, and turning the weapons of war into plowshares and
pruning hooks to establish wilderness. This is our most selfish
and self-preserving act, this is in humanity's best interest to
do. Also, this is altruistic, and this is most loving, and it
will be humanity's greatest triumph over global degradation. The
book really makes sense, of everything! Count me in! Five
Robert Johnson, Chandler, Arizona
truly astounding read! This book is a total surprise... and
a good one at that! If a history as interesting as this were
taught in school, I would have done much better in my history
classes. It amazes me just how much has been left out of our
"accepted" history. There are global
"catastrophes" that bring civlizations around the
globe to an end in a very short time. Or as the book describes,
times of life's renewal. One surprise -- there are many -- is
that historical writings, religious writings and mythology all
discuss these periods, but somehow they aren't discussed in
schools and even universities. Another surpise is that natural
disasters, terrorism and war have been undergoing a steady climb
from the late 1700s to the present -- a sort of climax is
occuring. Even more surprising is that when natural disasters go
up, war and terrorism go down, and vice versa -- we and Nature
take turns in acomplsihing the same objective. I wouldn't want
to ruin it for you as to why, but you should read it. The most
important thing is that this book is very timely, and it
explains why the world is the way it is today. HIGHLY
RECOMMENDED!!" Five Stars.

is an incredibly interesting new theory. Your theory deserves to
be widely circulated and studied by the scientific community. It
is the first really 'new look' at the many questions surrounding
our existing models of Earth that I am aware of. It raises many
issues that demand response from the earth science field."
