The quote by Gurdjieff (mystic who made these comments in the early 1900's?) at the 1:00 minute mark (see video above) about life on planet earth being 'food for the moon' is quite thought-provoking:
Gurdjieff also made a lot of interesting remarks about the sciences and man's place in the Universe. One of his most cryptic remarks revolves around Man's relationship to the Moon. He stated flat-out that we are "food for the Moon". Many believe this phrase holds some deep esoteric meaning -- and it very well might -- but there might be a 'plain sight' scientific basis for it as well. Gurdjieff also made some other interesting comments about the Moon which fit closely with what McCanney says. In talking about the possible energy exchanges between the Earth and the Moon, Gurdjieff states:
This energy is collected and preserved in a huge accumulator situated on the earth's surface. This accumulator is organic life on earth. Organic life on earth feeds the moon. Everything living on the earth, people, animals, plants, is food for the moon. The moon is a huge living being feeding upon all that lives and grows on the earth. The moon could not exist without organic life on earth, any more than organic life on earth could exist without the moon. Moreover, in relation to organic life, the moon is a huge electromagnet. If the action of the electromagnet were suddenly to stop, organic life would crumble to nothing.
What he says here makes sense if we consider that the Moon may be necessary for sustaining the Earth's broad magnetic field which protects Man and all other creatures from cosmic radiation. How could organic life on the surface of the Earth survive without such an ideal magnetic environment?
