You have just entered my blog. A place where I aim to shine light into the hard truths about our world. We are living at a time of multiple blockages preventing us from seeing our society for what it really is. This is the time to be curious and creative: to dissect and challenge constructs and systems of thought that have been around for ages, and boldly dream of other ways to be, as the planet’s collapse forces us to change our ways one way or another.

My writing has been described by my readers as a mix of philosophy, science, spirituality and psychology. As a molecular biologist, chemist and food scientist, I cannot help but approach the climate crisis through a methodic systems approach. However I quickly move on from that narrow lens and to the much bigger one, which is the meaning of our existence. I often ask why we, humans, do the things that we do, which often seem to make no sense. My ambition is to try and reveal, to set free, the Other Human that resides in each one of us: a human who has been caged, suppressed, traumatised, silenced and forgotten by centuries of capitalism and the CO2 life-support Machine. Myself included.

  1. George, your thoughts put in writing are beautifuly written. They bring tears of lost humaness and reverance to this experience we call life. We have become alienated from our real self. Thanks for saying it so well. Love Rick

  2. It seems that I get closer to the real meaning of life every time again! The moment I read one of your articles I thought: this is it, again ….
    Thanks!

  3. George you are my newest favourite writer – soooo digging your spot-on alchemist mix of intelligent, insightful, consciously brilliant wordsmithing. Thank you for shining your lil light out there. You are seen and loved!

  4. Hi George
    My sister Trish Kaiser is heavily into climate change and has made me aware of the dire straits we are in. Because of her I have stumbled on to you. I love your posts and think you are spot on with what you say. Thanks for saying things gently and nicely while giving us the truth.

  5. I’ve enjoyed reading your posts and have bookmarked your site. Are you aware of professor Ajit Varki’s theory on denial? I believe climate change is a symptom of human overshoot and that denial is at the core of this predicament. The link below is a review of Varki’s book.

      1. Yes he put forward terror management theory. Although I’m certainly no expert my understanding is that Varki’s mind over reality theory (MORT) is an advancement on this idea.
