'A deft, frequently dramatic tour' Nature 'A wonderfully clear and readable book . . . Gives a splendid overview of our Sun's planetary system, including its history and exploration' Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell * We have the impression that the solar system is perfectly regular like a clock, or a planetarium instrument. On a short timescale it is. But, seen in a longer perspective, the planets, and their satellites, have exciting lives, full of events - for example, did you know that Saturn's moon, Titan, boasts lakes which contain liquid methane surrounded by soaring hills and valleys, exactly as the earth did before life evolved on our fragile planet? Or that Mercury is the shyest planet? Or, that Mars' biggest volcano is 100 times the size of Earth's, or that its biggest canyon is 10 times the depth of the Grand Canyon, or that it wasn't always red, but blue? The culmination of a lifetime of astronomy and wonder, Paul Murdin's enchanting new book reveals everything you ever wanted to know about the planets, their satellites, and our place in the solar system.

Science and Spirituality have been opposing forces for some time now. Both important fields in their own right, which influence our lives, are starting to re-align. In this book we look at what we scientifically know about the planets in our Solar system. This book is part scientific and part spiritually channelled. In it we are also introduced to the Solar council who are a group of entities/representatives from each of the planets within the solar system that make up the council. They enlighten us as to the nature of our planetary system and the reason for the planets existence. They introduce us to life upon each planet and some of the moons at varying dimensional levels. This introductory book, that will lead to others, sheds light on the premise that our solar system is a school of learning. It also provides scientific evidence as to how the fields of science and spirituality are aligning.

Our species is evolving in preparation for the new world on the horizon • Explains how the increase in intuitive, creative, and abstract-thinking abilities of children as well as incidences of ADHD, dyslexia, and autism signal evolutionary changes at work in humanity--the emergence of the Fifth Root Race • Connects the appearance of these traits with ancient myths and evolutionary calendars as well as predictions by Teilhard de Chardin, Edgar Cayce, and other visionary seers • Reveals how these “new kids” act as agents for world change by reflecting back every misguided aspect of business, politics, religion, and culture The past 30 years have seen a quantum leap in the intuitive, creative, and abstract-thinking abilities of children as well as an unprecedented rise in incidences of ADHD, dyslexia, and autism spectrum disorders. As P. M. H. Atwater explains, we are witnessing evolution at work. The changes in consciousness and brain function evident in these “new kids” signal the widespread emergence of the Fifth Root Race and, fortuitously, coincide with our transition into the Fifth World. Providing a resource for parents and new kids themselves, Atwater explains what is happening to our species and our world--from neurological changes and climate upheavals to the drive to be constantly “connected” through screen-based technology and the unnecessary widespread use of drug therapies. Sharing individual case histories underscoring the traits of the new-child personality, she reveals how these children, born with universal consciousness encoded in their DNA, act as agents for world change by reflecting back every misguided aspect of business, politics, religion, entertainment, technology, and culture so we can’t ignore what needs to be repaired. Atwater shows how children labeled as autistic or otherwise “damaged” have enormous potential for greatness. Connecting recent events and cultural shifts with creation myths, evolutionary calendars, and historical records from every culture as well as predictions by Teilhard de Chardin, Sri Aurobindo, Edgar Cayce, and other visionary seers, Atwater shows how the genetic shift now occurring follows the “Rule of Thirds” in its progression. Exploring timelines for the next several hundred years, she explains that the coming new world will be tailored specifically for the new kids, who will lead the way in the Great Shift from old world to new.
