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.

Aphorisms from my teenage years I found while cleaning up:

Finding joy in creation
Is living in heaven.

Endings make beginnings;
Effects create causes;
rain clears the sky for sun;
Joy generates all life.

Beauty is the ultimate source of all efficiency in practical matters.
Here's how:
Timeless art inspires graciousness, and grace inspires economy of gesture and dedication to skill in turn. This allows more to be done with less effort and fewer negative side effects.
So efficiency comes from beauty!

Beauty has no home in the world, and so is welcome anywhere, because it takes on any appearence to please her gracious hosts. We welcome beauty into our lives not by calling it in but by clearing - inside and out - a tidy space for its appearence.

Only the invisible is beauty.
Only the silent is musical.
Only the simple is art.
Only the pure are powerful.
And only love gives eyes to see these things.
