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.

What Empiricum looks like in Gaia III:

In Twitchingland/Switzerland:

"It's called 'Devil's Bridge," said Sergius.  "The Bishop who controlled the town was in charge of all road construction.  Now and then dissatisfied farmers would build bridges themselves.  When the agents of the Bishop would come around asking who built the unauthorized bridge, they would say, "The devil built it.'"

My house on Zug Lake, where from the balcony I watched seven swans swim stately to be fed, was just below the hill where William Tell hid in wait for the tyrant Gessler, slew him with the extra arrow, and thus began the Swiss War for Independence.  Twelve twenty-one was my phone number in the Villars Chalet.  And the house on Zug Lake was in the exact center of Swiss space and time.  When one moves free, Sci-Fi high above gravity pull, it's all mystic, mythic, connected overground comics.
