*Quotations from - Joseph Campbell and Bill Moyers. 1997. The Power of Myth. DVD, Public Affairs Television, Inc., available from Amazon. The wisdom becomes more precious with time.


**A wonderful overview of the science in Chapter Three, Programming the Universe, by Seth Lloyd. 2006. Vintage Books. Everyone should read this chapter (at least); it’s so hard to find authoritative summary mental images in our world that specializes in specialized reporting of the details – without their significant context.

*This is supposed to be a quote of Jesus reported in the gospel of Thomas: “The Kingdom of Heaven is spread out before us but men do not see it.” The gospel of Thomas was removed from the New Testament about at the time the “dominator” social system took control over Christianity. It seems, according to some authors, that Chrisianity (or Jesus’ vision) was, before that, an attempt to restore the “partnership” style of social relationships. Those terms, dominator and partnership, reference Eisler, The Chalice and The Blade, available from Amazon. The reference to Gospel of Thomas is from Joseph Campbell, interviewed by Bill Moyers, in Campbell, Joseph and Bill Moyers, The Power of Myth, DVD
