"Thom the World poet is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Thom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth and Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied within seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not?"
FIRE UP THE HATERS!
Those whose virtual life is far more advanced than their "real"one
They who live online,and actively seek out new controversies
They who join FLAT EARTH SOCIETIES and promote ectoplasm
They who are ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN about immunization programs causing Ebola
Already a NEW MORALITY is debunking climate change evidence
Religious folk claim the Earth is only 5000 years old,and only 14,000 Christians will levitate to Heaven.
There is no point in showing them dinosaur bones or carbon dating results
Certainty is a virus ,and it is hard to get inoculated against arrogance.
Evidence used to allow for the growth of new theories.Enter "faux news".Exit "scientific data"
In a rapidly changing world,it is dangerous to remain with fixed (bayonet)ideas
Curiosity ,coupled with enthusiasm and a sense of wonder-still opens doors.
Prejudice and obstinacy are rocks on the Path.Some love to live in rock gardens.
I LIKE the idea of natural gardens of knowledge,seeking solutions and panaceas..
Perhaps we will discover a new penicillin..Let us be open..
