Gaia is the word for "unity-of-life-processes". The experiment here is to unify the various threads of voice and sense of self together into an undivided unity. Spirituality, economics, politics, science and ordinary life interleaved.

You know you think too much when...

... You buy and read a copy of Plotinus' neoplatonic classic, The Enneads, just because you happen to be feeling down.
... Your idea of kareoke is whistling a thirty-second phrase of a Bach fugue again and again in order to pinpoint the exact tonal shifts one by one.
... You keep a blog about other people's ideas about other people's ideas.
... You talk on the phone whilst playing Super Mario whilst watching Reality TV whilst listening to classical music on the radio with the kettle on
... You laugh at yourself when you think too little.
... Your idea of a relaxing holiday is reading Proust's tome, Rememberance of Things Past, on a green hillside somewhere.
... You look forward to old age so you can get some proper reading done.
... You try to sing nursery rhymes in the three different languages you speak poorly, translating as you go.
... You philosophise about cats.
... You read Economist magazine "just for laughs".
... You write stupid pieces like this and actually publish them on your blog.
