distasteful gut feeling you mentioned earlier in your response. I would
guess from a TAOIST view changing the environment with human
consciousness is a most natural thing to do and very useful for
survival. It's the part after survival is over that begs for theory,
understanding or avoidance. Taoism or the hint of it that I have grown
to experience seems to be on the right track because it can be
integrated with my equally as vague understanding of the universe.
