“THE GREATEST OF ALL THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF 20TH-CENTURY SCIENCE has been the discovery of human ignorance.” Lewis Thomas, Lives of a Cell. “OUR IGNORANCE, OF COURSE, HAS ALWAYS BEEN WITH US, AND ALWAYS WILL BE. What is new is our awareness of it, our awakening to its fathomless dimensions, and it is this, more than anything else, that marks the coming of age of our species.” Timothy Ferris, Coming of Age in the Milky Way.

  1. It's really TOO soon for me to comment, but I haven't let that stop me (?!) Your 2013 book "Awakening to the Obvious" is so great I posted about it on Twitter (but seems you're more active here.) I look forward to an exchange when I'm further along-- I've only read a few essays. LOVE IT!!! https://twitter.com/1ZenWoman

  2. I do have blogs, but they aren't linked to this account... ZiaLink.org has my info. I'm more active on Twitter and Fbook at this time (and that link is above.) Here's what I love most so far (from your book): Enlightenment is an activity not a state. "There are NO PERMANENT STATES of any kind! " (interrobang ;) )

    "I am no longer at war with ego or void." All your comments on ego are so refreshing! Thank you.
