ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

My profound thanks to Dame Phyllis Rodin, my Crone, for engaging me in long deep conversations about the life-force. I would also like to thank my committee members: Dr. Robert Baker for encouraging me to do a "traditional scholarly work;" Dr. Jack Wideman for agreeing to support my efforts I searched for one long year for an outside member; and especially Dr. Robert Wellman for chairing the committee and taking such exceptional interest in me and my work. Also thanks to Charles Frances Carroll, Don McNaughton, Lynea Search, and Batya Weinbaum who helped edit the manuscript. I am also grateful to Lynn Margulis and Dorion Sagan, the model mother/son, who inspired me to write this book. My deep appreciation goes to my parents Marion and Ainslie Hubbard who helped me break free. Finally, thanks to all my friends, visible and invisible, wherever you are! Friendship is the outgrowth of true education.

Abstract

As the human race approaches the 21st Century, the world's spiritual, political, social, economic, educational, and scientific philosophies appear out of balance with the emerging global consciousness brought forth by today's advancing technologies. Former President Bush's New World Order is really the same old nation state order of international anarchy. All the ancient problems seem to have reached a critical point. Now, a critical idealism in education, which is a call for spiritual action, is necessary in order to have the power to bond like-minds to cure our ancient social diseases. The scientific and social movement which scientist James Lovelock named the Gaia theory, named after the Greek Goddess of the Earth, is on the verge of creating world-wide evolutionary change. My online book attempts to help create a Gaian philosophy of planetary education based on love between the sexes by analyzing the function of epic poetry.

Note: I wrote this manuscript a decade ago. I can't remember where all the illustrations came from. If you know how I can site images not cited, please contact me.
