I fully support freedom of personal expression in cyberspace

I fully expect freedom of personal expression in cyberspace.

  These Web pages represent my own opinions and eccentricities.

Nothing you see here should be attributed to Umeå Universitet, Logicon, Northrop Grumman, the United States Air Force, or any other entity -- real, fictional, virtual, or simply lurking in the shadows monitoring your visit to these Web pages.


I've invented a fictive methodology labeled anagramancy - divination by analyzing permutations of the subject's name.

Try it -- it's fun!

"Dare Think Awry!"


  When I recently processed permutations of my name through an anagram generator, I obtained a number of intriguingly pertinent phrases. The picture discernible from the resultant fragments is presented in the free verse(?) posted on my Home Page.

Enola Gaia
(The Concept)

Some might call Enola Gaia my free-floating signifier or my guiding meme. I think of her as my totem...

EGMasthead   The B-29 bomber Enola Gay was the vehicle for the world's inaugural nuclear attack on Japan. Enola Gaia connotes an envisioned vehicle for something considerably more global and more benign. All my computers have been named Enola Gaia, and I use this label as the rubric for all my private work.

Enola Gaia
(The Iconized Girl)

The canonical Enola Gaia logo image is Alice Liddell - the real Alice for whom Lewis Carroll wrote his Wonderland stories.

The particular image used is an 1859 photograph of Alice (by Charles Dodgson, a.k.a. Lewis Carroll) as a study on the subject "The Beggar Maid".

This photograph was subsequently used as the basis for a colored picture presented as a gift to Alfred Lord Tennyson in reference to his popular poem of the same name.

(Snake eating its own tail)

The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol of circularity, cyclicity, and hence infinity.
