Karta, total environment is the 'whole stew', or the 'universal
ecology', in which we live. If that is Gaia, then yes.

Right. At this very moment, there are an infinite number of
conversations occuring. Self talking to self, but wearing different
masks, some might say.
The stew or ecology is all-encompassing. It is impossible to
extricate oneself from it. This is a source of overwhelm to the 'wee
me', which, as a result of the overwhelm, seeks to limit
the 'incoming' from the stew or ecology by categorizing, ignoring, or
otherwise manipulating the incoming to make it more managable. 'Bite
size pieces, only, please!' Well, simply because we're not biting off
more than we can chew, doesn't mean the rest of the stew doesn't
exist. We get cooked in the stew, and our 'flavors' mingle.

Yes. 'Aura' is such a loose term, isn't it? I hate to use it. I
prefer to notice the specifics of what comprises the aura. It is a
vast game of 'scissors, paper, rock', with a vast array of qualities
in dynamic conversation. The future becomes exponentially difficult
to predict beyond the first moment. :)
