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.

Aligning to the spirit of the web.

When one interacts with the net, one may align "horizontally" in terms of "what's in it for me?"; or one may align "vertically' alongside the net itself as a whole. Some examples of this:

- "What's in this for us?"
- Seeing the net as a place to give, care, support and help
- Seeing the web not as text, pics and links, but as interactions, intentions, and iterations of shared values.
- Acting on the web as a shared value. For instance, in my blog and collected online works I would hope it is a gift.

Probably the best use of the web is not for shopping but for engaging the mind. The value of this is to align with others in recognising the commonality of human problems and seeing others' problems as part of the same set of solutions as the solution to your problem, and giving what you can.
