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.

Plato's Cave: a modernisation

This links to a modern version of Plato's cave. It goes without saying that this depiction of a collective impasse is about as useful for enlightening folk as teachings of enlightenment - ie, there's no way of evaluating the merit of these ideas except submitting to kinesiology testing and the Hawkins map. However, they do serve their place in instilling questionable values, a much-beloved pastime of Socrates and Plato.

I have a mind to install this in my vision of post-Gaian Australia. A network of folk living under the ground feeding off Manner (manna from the Old Testament) and indulging in courteous Good Manners as a way of surviving. It might bear fruit.
