INFrequently Asked Questions (INFAQS)


Our cat is no longer a predator; she has lost interest in killing. Is this a normal stage in cat development or is it pathognmonic?

In her a youth and adulthood the birds, mostly doves, pecieved from her a large aura, aka safety distance. Now the birds close to ignore her. Wary they always are but no sudden terror flight from propinguity. What are the signals from cat to bird and how have they changed?

Wathing monarch and milkweed play off one anothher. I read the standard story in evolutionary biology about their coevolution. The story goes that the larval butterfly 'attacks' the plant which counters by 'defending'. A continuous 'battle' of attack and defend. At some point the plant created a toxin defense. The butterly countered by channeling the toxin off into its own defense against predation system. The question I am reaching for, Why is 'battle' assumed to be the relationship when what we see is a reciprocal gifting and a coreliance? 

The vision is for Ongoingness; Life continuing on . . . .

Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. And you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be––this is the interrelated structure of reality.


Now, more than ever . . . our place in the universe and the place of the universe in us, is proving to be one of active relationship. That is more than a scientist’s credo. The separateness of our lives is a sham. Physics, mathematics, music, painting, my politics, my love for you, my work, the star-dust of my body, the spirit that impels it, clocks diurnal, time perpetual, the roll, rough, tender, swamping, liberating, breathing, moving, thinking nature, human nature and the cosmos are patterned together.                JEANETTE WINTERSON,                     Gut Symmetries

Yes, there is beauty

There is love

There is joy.

All you who suffer from

the world's miseries

Defend them.
