Psychonaut's mention of the Tasmanian devil prompts me to add this link as an aside. This fascinating marsupial with its stocky little body and huge muscular jaw has the most devilish cry and bite. Yet it's quite endearing really.

B2B, in all seriousness I like the piss in your poems. While others muse about death, you write delightfully about urine:

As you read, a white bear leisurely
pees, dyeing the snow
saffron.


That is so vivid in my mind's eye! :D

As an aside: I know that I'm in telepathic communication with one of my cats. I experienced the same degree of unspoken communication with my dog when she was alive. My own thoughts, and the animal's non verbal thoughts, must be moving at the speed of light across the vibrating web of life. I bet I'...

If you must read a book, man or woman, I recommend “Female Sexual Abuse of Children”, Edited by Michele Elliott, 1993, The Guilford Press. It is a timely reminder that not all women are angels. In 1998 Dr. Elliott very kindly spoke on the phone with me about it, and introduced me to one of her ‘sec...

Yes, he thinks we've had it. I saw him on TV not long ago and he reckons we have only about 40 years (maybe less) before our Earth system reaches tipping point, when it can no longer maintain homoestatis. Yet he reckons we should be investing in low carbon nuclear energy if we've any hope of saving ...

In Lovelock's theory ALL is living! That's the whole point of his Gaia hypothesis. Earth is a self-regulating system, rather like a living cell. It's also true that Lovelock believes that Earth could die - that is to say, it can only tolerate a degree of destruction of its interrelated functions. It...

What I think I'm saying (still not entirely sure because this stuff is so complex!) is that in essence , ALL is life - even the rocks, the oceans, rivers, snow. This is because when matter is broken down to its essence, we are left with either Nothing, or maybe Something. If Nothing, then we are to ...

Hello Effie, I confess that I haven't followed this thread properly as it's difficult terrain for me! However, my ears pricked up when the term 'electrofield' was mentioned. This is because I've met two scientists (on separate occasions) whose work centres on electro magnetic fields. Both men are mo...

May I suggest that life as perceived through the senses is animated by something. For instance, when we die the biochemicals remain, yet the body is lifeless, for something has departed. If we are religious, we'd say that the spirit has left the body. Even if we're not religious, surely only a denia...

Are you thinking of BBC Radio 4's theme tune for Hitch Hiker's Guide, first broadcast in the late 1970s? If so, I remember it fondly as I listened to the entire series which continued for many weeks. Brilliant on every level!

You've a wonderfully eclectic musical palate! The Cockney Rebels trigger a faint memory of The Sex Pistols. Do you remember 'Anarachy UK'? What a ditty! A more wholesome cockney was the late Ian Dury, disabled as a result of polio in childhood. I like his 'Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick'. http://uk.y...
