Daily Inspiration — Clear-cuts, Cloudbursts, and Clucking Hens The human body is precisely our capacity for metamorphosis. We mistakenly think of our flesh as a fixed and finite form, a neatly-bound package of muscle and bone and bottled electricity, with blood surging its looping boulevards and by-ways.

Daily Inspiration — Sentient Creatures and Fellow Beeings Bees are a lot smarter than we have given them credit for. They talk to each other, and can learn new skills from one another. They have sophisticated maps in their heads. They can plan for the future. Are they conscious?

Daily Inspiration — The Earth-Spirit I feel it shall be so. We are not born To sink our finer feelings in the dust; And better to the grave with feelings torn, So in our step strides truth and honest trust In the great love of things, than to be slaves To forms, whose ringing sides each stroke we give Stamps with a hollower want. Yes, to our graves Hurry, before we in the heavens' look live, Strangers to our best thoughts, and fearing men,

Open Letter to The Guardian Yesterday, The Guardian published an article charging collusion between the 2016 Trump Campaign and Julian Assange of Wikileaks. The Guardian article cited no evidence, and was based on un-named sources. This is my response.

Daily Inspiration — Quantum Physics and The Core of Who We Are There is no room for mind in 19th Century physics, but there is an explicit place for mind in quantum physics. So why are we still working with an understanding in which our world is dead, our brains are meat computers and consciousness is an illusion?

What do we know about Scott Joplin? Tradition says he was born 24 November 1868, so he would have been just 150 years old today. The son of a newly-freed Texas slave, how did he learn what he learned about music?

Daily Inspiration — I hope that you had a delicious Thanksgiving. What does it mean to hope for something in the past that already has happened (or not)? Heck--what does it mean to hope for something in the future? And what does it mean to tell someone that we hope something, without really experiencing either the emotion of hope or the visualization of the desiderate event?

Daily Inspiration — The Shaman as Trickster The woman is cured. The cancer disappears. Her pain disappears. Within a few days, she returns to her work in the field. The story told by us in the West is that she has benefited from the placebo effect. The story told by the Shaman is that the evil spirit was tricked into leaving the woman's body. What the two stories have in common is that she no longer has cancer.

Daily Inspiration — A Meteor Ended the Last Ice Age A large new meteor crater has been discovered in NW Greenland. The story of Noah's Ark is just one of many flood stories, oral tradition and folklore from from cultures around the world. Did millions of cubic miles of ice melt gradually at the end of the ice age, or did this meteor impact trigger a sudden melting? Sea levels were 120 meters lower during the last ice age.

Daily Inspiration — What does it mean to be self-actualized in these crazy times? The goal of identity (self-actualization . . .) seems to be simultaneously an end-goal in itself, and also a transitional goal, a rite of passage, a step along the path to the transcendence of identity. This is like saying its function is to erase itself.

Daily Inspiration — What does Peace Ask of Us? One hundred years ago today, an armistice was signed to end the War to End All Wars. Unaware, the troops went right on killing, raping, and plundering. But the Great War led to an up-wising, as people the world over figured out that they had been snookered into a murderous, devastating, tragic and pointless world war.
