I LOVE this question. It's one that I ponder often. Personally, I do think that the earth may be conscious of itself. In fact, since we are made of the Earth and specifically designed to live here, we may be an extension of how the earth experiences itself. I find it interesting that many of the ancient gods were planets. Maybe they knew that all the planets were 'alive' so to speak. I love out-of-the-box thinking. S&F for you.

It's good to see that some are trying to awake, only need to have a little push.
What would you like to know about Mother Earth? (GIA for that's the spiritual name of our planet).
I can give you that push.
The Gaia hypothesis is an ecological hypothesis proposing that the biosphere and the physical components of the Earth (atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere) are closely integrated to form a complex interacting system that maintains the climatic and biogeochemical conditions on Earth in a preferred homeostasis. Originally proposed by James Lovelock as the earth feedback hypothesis, it was named the Gaia Hypothesis after the Greek supreme goddess of Earth. The hypothesis is frequently described as viewing the Earth as a single organism. Lovelock and other supporters of the idea now call it Gaia theory, regarding it as a scientific theory and not mere hypothesis, since they believe it has passed predictive tests.
