The Cosmobiology Institute is dedicated to the empirical verification of relationships between cosmic phenomena with organic life, and to the practical application of these observations and discoveries.
The term cosmobiology was introduced and defined extremely well by Reinhold Ebertin in the mid-20th century, as a scientific discipline concerned with possible correlations between the cosmos and organic life; it strives to understand the effects of cosmic rhythms and stellar motion on people, with all their potentials and dispositions, characters, and life changes. It also involves research on these correlations and effects as mirrored by the earth's plant and animal life as a whole. In this endeavor, cosmobiology utilizes modern-day methods of scientific research, such as statistics, analysis, and computer programming. (See The Combination of Stellar Influences, Ebertin-Verlag, 1972, p. 11.)
The Cosmobiology Institute continues the spirit of the investigations by Ebertin and others such as Johannes Kepler and John Addey. In this tradition, scientific principles and methods are applied to the study of the relationship of celestial motions with the experiences and behavior of humans and other living things. The Cosmobiology Institute is consistent with the emphasis in many modern professions on evidence-based practices and careful adherence to high academic standards and principles. Fundamental to this process is determining and evaluating levels of confidence, effect sizes and other assessments of research results.
The Cosmobiology Institute operates with the same technical and academic sophistication as excellent universities and research institutes. The focus is on discovery and innovation that meet the standards of the world's finest educational and research institutions. Cutting edge developments in research methods, data science, analytics, mathematical models, and physics are utilized to make discoveries and build applications. Rigorous testing and evaluation combined with the highest integrity, sincerity, and honesty in reporting findings places the Cosmobiology Institute at the forefront of groundbreaking technological advancements that can deliver practical applications and useful benefits in a wide range of disciplines.
As a nonprofit organization dedicated to furthering scientific understanding and developing applications that improve the lives of people, the Cosmobiology Institute provides a range of services that are free, or involve minimal cost, as well as services that can be further developed by private businesses and governmental agencies without onerous intellectual property constraints. Open-source software, training programs and publications are some of the forms in which the Cosmobiology Institute provides these services.
