a great scientist of Gaia has passed, leaving a wonderful legacy that needs tending. Lynn Margulis was the most biocentric of the Gaia scientists, and a major inspiration for yours truly's Gaia and the New Politics of Love. Her books of science read like novels because she was in love with the Earth, enchanted with its animated creatures large and small, passionate about their symbiosis. For the full collection, check her Author's Page.
For the Holiday Season, consider making a donation to the Lynn Margulis Memorial Fund. It will be a good contribution to the future of life on our hostess/lover/mother planet Earth.
This is the announcement from James MacAllister, a friend of science who is taking taking the legacy on.
