Thought Prompts – The Complete List
Sources + References
The Resouces Vault contains miscellaneous resources (links to books, videos, podcasts, blogs) that don't quite fit into the video lessons but that have inspired me.
Each lesson has a comment section. There, you can ask any questions about the video lessons and I will answer them. In the comment section, you can meet other Earth mentees and exchange your thoughts.
This list includes all thought prompts and thought-provoking questions from the previous lessons. They can help you formulate your personal philosophy of life, your personal life values. Downloadable PDF.
The formation of the Earth and the Moon
The structure and layers of the Earth
What the overview effect is and how you can experience a similar effect without going to space
The constellation of the continents and supercontinents like Pangea
Earth's location within the Milky Way
The Earth's eras and periods and the most important key events in all of Earth's history, including the origin of life, extinction events and the constellation of the continents
What deep time is and why it's geology's greatest contribution to the world
You'll feel encouraged and empowered to live a life consistent with your life values and to set healthy boundaries.
You'll be able to identify and name the core values (qualities, beliefs, and standards for behaviour) that are important to you and that you want to live by.
You'll feel safe, grounded, peaceful, human and free more often.
You'll have the courage to live your life on your terms.
You'll show superficiality the cold shoulder more frequently.
You'll comprehend that focusing your attention on something greater than your own life leads to profound feelings of serenity, contentment, and fulfillment by feeling a strong sense of connection and belonging.
You'll be better at coping with the fear of failure and perfectionism by regaining self-respect, feeling whole and perfect just the way you are by realizing you’re an integral, irreplaceable part of nature.
You'll gather the strength to escape the daily grind and the constant need to improve and enhance your life, the hectic and chaotic world, by summoning the courage to radically accept your situation and yourself.
You’ll comprehend that you need less to be happy and to be satisfied quicker.
You'll be able to reassess your priorities in life. You'll have the strength to disconnect from detrimental situations and people and stop being available 24/7 by reconnecting with nature in an unprecedented and unexpected way: by minimizing superficiality and leveraging meaning through scientific knowledge.
want to learn about the Earth's history | find a lot of strength and peace in nature | are purpose-driven, meaning you believe there is more to care about in life than your own well-being and that you want to make a difference in the world | sometimes feel trapped or that you're missing out on life | have a mind that wants to think big | are open to concepts of geology and open to learning about Earth
suffer from apeirophobia (fear of infinity), anxiety or from panic attacks when thinking about Earth from space or when observing the (night) sky | you want a quick fix | are a flat earther, creationist etc. | are not open to learning about scientific geological concepts and about Earth | are not open to philosophical perspectives
Nope! All concepts will be easy to understand. This course does not involve difficult or complex geology, mathematics, physics or chemistry. However, I don't want to oversimplify this course. That's why there might be a few terms and jargon you haven't heard before, but these will be explained and you won't have problems to understand them in the context.
No. The course is based on geoscience which is a legitimate natural science. This course is neither spiritual nor esoteric.
No. I don't indoctrinate and won't impose my opinion regarding lifestyle matters on you. However, since I’m a geoscientist, I am biased. I encourage sustainable, conscious, respectful living and making decisions in favor of Earth/nature. My goal is to deliver to you a broader understanding of our place in time and space – so that you’re able to ask new, better questions and to reassess your decision-making and your lifestyle. While I'm doing my best to deliberately built this course in a way that enables you to discover your life values on your terms, I can’t guarantee there won’t be any suggestions or provoking thoughts you don’t want to hear. Ultimately, I want you to make decisions according to values that you define yourself.
