The world consists of four elements: earth, water, fire and air, said the ancient philosophers. Later, as the chemical elements of the physical world were found, the old idea was considered to be hilarious.
It may be time to stop laughing. These classical elements have turned out to be very serviceable tools when working out really long-term weather forecasts.
How does this idea sound? Earth, water, fire and air are elements of a world composed of finer particles that works in the background of the
physical world and continuously interacts with the physical world.
This kind of science is called extended natural science, and it considers the multidimensionality of the world.
Let us suppose that the idea expressed above is true. Then we can continue thus:
The four classical elements - earth, water, fire and air, or to put it more exactly coldness, water, heat and light/dryness - 'color' the weather
each in their own way in and each for their own period of time. What determines the period of time? We say that our whole solar system does -
from as far away as the fixed stars.
Our solar system works in a very clear way as a system controlling the world's nature and weather. The location of planets and their mutual
positions express a power system, where the influence of the elements gets stronger or gets weaker, continuously changing, and the earth's
atmosphere responds to these changes quickly and sensitively.
It could be said, that the elements give a beginning to the high pressures and the depressions, the warmth and the coldness, after which these
rotate, drift, rise and descend as explaned by the normal meteorology, and on the other hand face a new beginning after another.
The changes of elements in space cannot be measured or weighed because they do not function according to the physical world or the laws of physics,
but they function on the so called 'level of life'. The changes in time can yet be calculated and the physical
consequences in the atmosphere can be detected and measured.
Despite this, the laws of physics are of course still valid, and the rains, temperatures, atmospheric pressures and winds work just like scientists
have said they do.
Conventional meteorology is very particular and precise, but also quite short-term. A normal forecast covers five days, and a forecast for a
few weeks or months is a magnificent achievement.
Extended science forecasts are relative, but precise in terms of time and can cover years. Relativity does not mean arbitrary. On the contrary -
it means regularity in the changes of increases and decreases. When it is known what increases temperature, brightness, rain or storms and what
reduces them, this information can be linked to the experience and calculations of conventional meteorology.
These two points of view are complementary to each other, and the next task would be to start linking them systematically with each other.
This calls for collaboration, and the only missing insight from conventional meteorology is that there is no contradiction between the facts of
the official science and extended natural science.
In these next pages we take a closer look at the essence of extended science, the elements and the ways in which they manifest themselves in the
