The author expounds the possible effect of cosmic influences on man. He does not mean occult phenomena but geophysical effects and considers this new field of study bioclimatic or meteorobiologic. Many influences of an extraterrestrial nature are mentioned as theoretical possibilities, but no actual correlations are given between them and variations in man. His proposed field is one in which Peterson has long worked (The Patient and the Weather) but the author is unacquainted with this work.
