I suspect anyone who's read Charles Eisenstein has considerable respect for him. One of the very few book clubs I ever attended, a few years back, was about his book, "Sacred Economics." I loved that one, along with the one titled, "The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible," which was truly "relatable." I did not read the book he speaks about here, on climate change or more accurately Gaia, but his speech about it has moved it up my list. I do think you'll get the main idea; even if one disagrees with the premise(s), I certainly consider it valuable food for thought.

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)

Daniel, thank you. That was an excellent and very worthwhile talk for me. The earth is alive. It seems such a simple idea that everyone surely understands without even thinking about it. But they, or we, don't. Like so many things, people just don't think about things like this.

We, the earth and all its life too, we are all in this together. But this oh smart species of ours has acted like we control everything, we are in charge, it all belongs to us. But what are we anyway? Educated monkeys is what we are at the top of the food chain. Who do we think we are? We are just apemen. That's who we are. That is what I am. So I'm no better than the animals sitting in their cages In the zoo man'. Cos compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees I am an ape man

"Apeman"

I think I'm sophisticated
'Cos I'm living my life like a good homosapien
But all around me everybody's multiplying
Till they're walking round like flies man
So I'm no better than the animals sitting in their cages
In the zoo man
'Cos compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees
I am an ape man

I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized
'Cos I'm a strict vegetarian
But with the over-population and inflation and starvation
And the crazy politicians
I don't feel safe in this world no more
I don't want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an ape man
I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man
I'm an ape man I'm a King Kong man I'm ape ape man
I'm an ape man

'Cos compared to the sun that sits in the sky
Compared to the clouds as they roll by
Compared to the bugs and the spiders and flies
I am an ape man

In man's evolution he has created the cities and
The motor traffic rumble, but give me half a chance
And I'd be taking off my clothes and living in the jungle
'Cos the only time that I feel at ease
Is swinging up and down in a coconut tree
Oh what a life of luxury to be like an ape man
I'm an ape, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voo-doo man
I'm an ape man

I look out my window, but I can't see the sky
'Cos the air pollution is fogging up my eyes
I want to get out of this city alive
And make like an ape man
Come and love me, be my ape man girl
And we will be so happy in my ape man world
I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voo-doo man
I'm an ape man

I'll be your Tarzan, you'll be my Jane
I'll keep you warm and you'll keep me sane
And we'll sit in the trees and eat bananas all day
Just like an ape man
I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voo-doo man
I'm an ape man.

I don't feel safe in this world no more
I don't want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore
And make like an ape man.

My brother's birthday was yesterday. I called and said the usual, "Be sure to get in your birthday suit and have a good time!"

He said he had it on but under his clothes. He was in the uber-efficient retirement retiremment home he built in Shirley, Maine, and his wife was there.

So I'm sure he had a wonderful apeman day. Will send him this in a moment!
