Dave Pape, Jar 148 was thinking again:

Analogies are great. Of course we are all cells of a big organism -- what
other evidence than the fact that we all interact is needed? Although it
does not mean that GNS is intelligent. Using analogy of living organisms,
its complexity is probably far from a bacteria.

Gaia needs millions of new jars... Well, the Net is growing.


You are both, you are just hiding the female part of you. As soon as you
let her come out, I'm sure you will think more and speak less. Make peace
with her. It's worth it.
