The domination culture trains us to use the past for regret and the future for anxiety and hardly ever visit the present.

I've never seen evidence for a non-material realm separate from the physical world of the senses. I have seen a great deal of evidence that human beings have active imaginations and an endless capacity to believe whatever they like in the face of evidence.
Belief is impervious to evidence because it reinterprets evidence to support itself.
Reality is on my side in the same way that my body is on the side of the cells that compose it. I am part of the immune system of Gaea.
