So the tale begins . . .

What is Gaia? Sometimes spelt Gaea, it is the name the Ancient Greeks gave to the Earth Goddess. Scientist James Lovelock used this name in his book, Gaia (Oxford University Press 1987) his thesis being that the planet Earth (or Gaia) behaves as a biological entity, regulating its environment to ensure its own survival.

This also fits with the metaphysical idea that there is nothing in the Universe that is not, in some way or other, ‘alive’. Everything has energy, and according to quantum physics, matter is not solid at all but can be seen at all levels as parcels or patterns of energy.

The revival of this ancient name has inspired artists, writers, conference organisers and many others to help us see Earth in more life-promoting ways.
