He analyzed sunspot records and proxies as well as battles, revolutions, riots and wars in Russia and 71 other countries for the period 500 BCE to 1922 CE. He found that 80% of the most significant events occurred around sunspot maximum. This data was also reported and further analyzed by Raymond Wheeler and Edward R. Dewey in America, and Dewey reported various cycles in the battles index including 11 and 22 years, both related to sunspot activity. He noted that the Russian Revolution of 1917 occurred during a sunspot activity peak and as a result spent long years in Soviet prisons (Gulag) because his theory challenged the communist belief system. He considered that solar activity triggered existing grievances and complaints rather than causing them.
"Life is a phenomenon. Its production is due to the influence of the dynamics of the cosmos on a passive subject. It lives due to dynamics, each oscillation of organic pulsation is coordinated with the cosmic heart in a grandiose whole of nebulas, stars, the sun and the planet."- Alexander L Chizhevsky
Chizhevsky proposed that not only did geomagnetic storms resulting from sunspot-related solar flares affect electrical usage, plane crashes, epidemics and grasshopper infestations, but human mental life and activity. Increased negative ionization in the atmosphere increased human mass excitability. Chizhevsky proposed that human history is influenced by the eleven year peaks in sunspot activity, triggering humans en masse to act upon existing grievances and complaints through revolts, revolutions, civil wars and wars between nations...

Lyall Watson, a South African multidisciplinary scientist, reveals studies in his 1973 book 'Supernature' that show how the Sun, Moon and planets affect life forms in indirect ways (gravity, magnetism, sunspots etc).
Raymond Wheeler believed that the climate has a dominant influence on human behavior. He found that climate moves in cycles from warm to cold and wet to dry. Four distinct phases are created by the climate cycle: warm-wet, cold-wet, warm-dry, and cold-dry. During each of these climate phases, human activity varies. Specifically, nations tend to be built during shifts from cold to warm periods. Nations tended to fall during shifts from warm to cold periods. Within these long-term weather trends, Wheeler found that international wars are mostly warm weather associated, while civil wars are mostly cold weather related. Cold-dry periods (cold droughts) predominantly tend to foment civil wars. Wheeler’s work, therefore, supports the sunspot-war connection. [link]
Edward R. Dewey, an economist who studied cycles in economics and other fields. Dewey first became interested in cycles while Chief Economic Analyst of the Department of Commerce in 1930 or 1931 because President Hoover wanted to know the cause of the Great Depression. Dewey devoted his life to the study of cycles, claiming that "everything that has been studied has been found to have cycles present." He carried out extensive studies of cyclicity in economic, geological, biological, sociology, physical sciences and other disciplines. He also wrote a book "Cycles: The Mysterious Forces that Trigger Events" in 1971, as well as an article "Sunspots and War, 300 B.C. to Date" in May 1960.
And finally Tesla, the greatest scientist who ever lived, has been long aware of the cosmic influences on humanity:
~ Hикола Tесла
"Any living being is a machine attached to the cogwheel of the universe. Although at first glance, it is influenced only by it's immediate surroundings, the field of external influence spans indefinitely. There is no single constellation of stars or nebulae, the Sun or planets, in the depths of unlimited space, nor wanderers of starry sky, which somehow do not affect it's fate - but not in the vague and elusive terms of astrology, but in a firm and reliable sense of the natural Science."
~ Nikola Tesla
