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.

Feeling Blue and the BROH Trick

I've been feeling blue the last two days.

The BROH Trick is something I stumbled upon which is an interesting healing trick for depression and dysthymia.

"By all means stay under the duvet, study the familiar imperfections on the ceiling, and watch the thoughts, complete with renewed floods of tears (all part of the BROH). As soon as you realise you can watch them, you can understand that they're not you. They're just long-established patterns. See them as patterns, and hey presto, you've detached your self-image from them. Having detached, you are completely free to ignore them - they literally mean nothing."

Brilliant stuff...bless the writer, Vivien J. H. Mitchell!

How do you feel about women's rights? I like either side of them.
Groucho Marx

In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

People used to explore the dimensions of reality by taking LSD to make the world look weird.
Now the world is weird and they take Prozac to make it look normal.
