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.

Watching 'Contact' and Blockbusters

Watching the movie 'Contact'. The detailed loving realism of the movie is a prism through which to incredible reality of the postmodern world is made to seem more extreme.

Today in Borders, reading a history of the blockbuster, I read how Spielberg received the screams of the first test screening of 'Jaws' with a desire to generate a larger scream. Whether this is a higher level of regard for the audience, a lower level of regard for storytelling, or simply a surreal infatuation with special effects.
