Unification Aspects:

James Smith (2006) notes that "The Miocene was a time of great change and it was during this time that the foundations for the climate, geography, flora and fauna of the modern world were set in motion." This is in keeping with Unification Thought, which recognizes that development takes place in stages, with each stage built on the foundation of preceding stages and in turn laying the foundation for subsequent stages. Each stage in life, whether that of a human (child, adolescent, and mature adult) or tree (seed, sapling, mature tree) takes time, and so too with the development of the geology and life on this planet.

Unification Aspects is designed to relate the subject of this article to Unification Thought and to aid
teachers and researchers who wish to further pursue these topics from a unification perspective.
