    The book is a long-suppressed gospel that calls into question the accuracy of the New Testament’s depiction of one of the most portentous events in human history. For that reason alone, the Order of St. Helena will stop at nothing to keep it out of Gabriel’s hands. The biosphere (from Greek βίος bíos "life" and σφαῖρα sphaira "sphere"), also known as the ecosphere (from Greek οἶκος oîkos "environment" and σφαῖρα), is the worldwide sum of all can also be termed the zone of life on Earth, a closed system (apart from solar and cosmic radiation and heat from the interior of the Earth), and largely self-regulating.

      Fire, earth, air, and water are terrestrial elements while aether is a celestial element. The most important point is that Aristotle redefined natural elements to include early ideas of phase transition. Aristotle also made an important attempt to explain gravity. His theory was that all bodies move toward their “natural place.”. Introduction: Religion and the public sphere. J. W. Boettcher & J. Harmon. Philosophy and Social Criticism 35 () ().

    Introduction (by Osiander) Since the newness of the hypotheses of this work--which sets the earth in motion and puts an immovable sun at the centre of the universe--has already received a great deal of publicity, I have no doubt that certain of the savants have taken grave offense and think it wrong to raise any disturbance among liberal disciplines which have had the right set-up for a long. Ecology (from Greek: οἶκος, "house", or "environment"; -λογία, "study of") is a branch of biology concerning interactions among organisms and their biophysical environment, which includes both biotic and abiotic components. Topics of interest include the biodiversity, distribution, biomass, and populations of organisms, as well as cooperation and competition within and between species.

The Natural History (Latin: Naturalis Historia) is a work by Pliny the is one of the largest single works to have survived from the Roman Empire to the modern day and purports to cover all ancient knowledge. The work's subject area is thus not limited to what is today understood by natural history; Pliny himself defines his scope as "the natural world, or life".Author: Pliny the Elder.

INTRODUCTION. MODERN natural science, which alone has achieved an all-round systematic and scientific development, as contrasted with the brilliant natural-philosophical intuitions of antiquity and the extremely important but sporadic discoveries of the Arabs, which for the most part vanished without results - this modern natural science dates, like all more recent history, from that mighty.

Positional Astronomy: The terrestrial sphere. Start with a familiar sphere: the Earth (assume for the moment that it is spherical), spinning around an axis. The North & South Poles are where this axis meets the Earth's surface.

The equator lies midway between them. The equator is an example of a great circle: one whose plane passes through the centre of the sphere.

The celestial spheres, or celestial orbs, were the fundamental entities of the cosmological models developed by Plato, Eudoxus, Aristotle, Ptolemy, Copernicus, and these celestial models, the apparent motions of the fixed stars and planets are accounted for by treating them as embedded in rotating spheres made of an aetherial, transparent fifth element (quintessence), like jewels set.

In Aristotelian physics and Greek astronomy, the sublunary sphere is the region of the geocentric cosmos below the Moon, consisting of the four classical elements: earth, water, air, and fire.

The sublunary sphere was the realm of changing nature. Beginning with the Moon, up to the limits of the universe, everything (to classical astronomy) was permanent, regular and unchanging—the region.
