THE MYSTERIOUS COMET
is Comyns Beaumont's investigation into the bigger aspects of what we call weather. He joins up the normally fragmented disciplines of History, Astronomy, Geology, Geography - and Meteorology - to give a complete picture of the systems within systems through which our planet operates in the wider solar system and indeed the cosmos, showing that the effects of 'Space Weather' are very real, and that we need to think beyond the clouds not only to understand everyday conditions, but also to predict major catastrophes.
Comyns Beaumont clearly illustrates the seemingly overlooked connection between volcanoes and the passage or impact of heavenly bodies, giving rise to various atmospheric phenomena; eruptions, earthquakes, tidal waves and floods, showing that the Law of Attraction is indeed in operation on all levels.
'The Mysterious Comet' examines the relationship between the Earth and other bodies in space, with or without 'fixed' orbits, noting the effects on various systems, weather and otherwise. He notes the interaction between comets, meteors, meteorites and volcanoes, and the manner in which all life is sustained by the replenishment of air and water and other energies brought by cometary bodies.
Comyns Beaumont brings together accounts of the earthquakes and eruptions of his day and those from history along with meteorological and astronomical accounts and mythical references. He builds on neo-platonic and catastrophist theories and places Atlantis in the region of the British Isles.
A fascinating and thorough book with lots of well indexed references for readers interested in doing further research.
