Cosmecology [Astro*Index]

Ecology of the cosmic; a term coined by Harlan T. Stetson in his book EARTH, RADIO, AND THE STARS. Stetson suggested a connection between cosmic and terrestrial events and that extraterrestrial factors could affect the ductless glands that control human moods and psyche.

Cosmecology [DeVore]

The ecology of the cosmic.

This title was suggested by Harlan T. Stetson, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, for a synthesis of the contemporary sciences of astronomy, electro-physics, geology and biology. In his book "Earth, Radio and the Stars" he ventures the remark that some curse apparently inures in the word "astro-" that keeps "astrology, mother of all these sciences, in the scientific dog-house," even though it may be the "lost key." He cautiously suggests that we trace the correlation between changes of a cosmic origin that affect our terrestrial environment, and periods of optimism and depression in the psychology of the human race; also that the ductless glands, controlling our moods and temperaments, respond to penetrating radiations which sooner or later must be discovered.
