Appendix A: Commentaries
The Gaia Shibboleth
The Gaia shibboleth is the acid test that distinguishes cultural paradigms which lead to destruction and discord from those that result in the survival of the diversity of human and biological life on Earth. The Gaia shibboleth is more fundamental and more ancient than religion and does not divide anyone from anyone else but heals the closing circle of coexistence in the diversity of life. It is thus the key to the solution of all intractible problems of utopian division.
Cosmos ex Natura
What we have learned from the scientific description of reality can become the foundation for a spiritual revolution that forms a tectonic ground-shift, transforming our view of religion, sweeping away many of the false assumptions, and diabolical contrivances, lurking in the hallowed cloisters of traditional religious systems.
