  1. I am endlessly fascinated by the depth of human experience, both into the deep past and the far future It is so easy to look myopically at our current condition and conclude we are doomed as a culture and a species But that is actually a good thing It is a survival trait ingrained in us through millennia of surviving The blissful carefree people walked off the edge of the cliff, or didn t run early enough from the tiger, and didn t get to reproduce.But life is nevertheless worth living, and my books explore the multi millennial span of the human condition My earlier books Free Space and Project Avalon look forward into a hopeful future My recent books The Wyrding Stone and Gravettian Goddess gaze back into the 40,000 year history and culture of modern humans, to explore the timeless themes that are still relevant and important to us in this present day.I believe, far from imagining ourselves at the pinnacle of evolution and history, that we should cultivate an attitude of stewardship, taking the rich cultural gifts passed to us by our ancestors, nurturing them, and bestowing them upon our progeny the we can develop this attitude, the better our chances for long term survival, and thriving as we reach out into the cosmos.To further these aims, I participate with The Overview Institute overviewinstitute and the Space Frontier Foundation spacefrontier I encourage anyone interested in these ideas to join me in discussing them at my Gravettian Goddess blog gravettiangoddess.
