let us know when you find out more! I'm curious.

My first thoughts were "Gae" as in "Gaea" so some sort of study of gaea or "earth" worship?

But that's a really vague, unresearched guess ;)

Well..i've recently heard of a movement away from the term "Paganism"...and into "Gaeology"..or something to that effect...Gaianism..maybe? To define in a more clear way that it is an Earth Based Worship System, and to get away from the historical meaning of paganism. (from the country, etc).

a word that Oberon Zell used to describe Goddess "worship" and GAIAology or GAEOLOGY seems to be very similar ..... if not just different spellings for the same concept.....but then again could be wrong.........sounds Celtic to me as well.........

I know its not something rooted in Celtic theology... What I do remember is that is originated in the 70's...

well, my first thought was something to do with Gaelic, as in gaeology, but if its not something Celtic, then I'm stumped, 'fraid...

I am gonna try to explain it...

Well from what I heard it originated in the 70's, during the well... Hippy era you could say. And what it is islike a scientific way of looking at the goddess... Not as a spirit but as a living breathing being, and there is this one place called the flower land that is just filled with flowers... And the flowers noticed that when it got cold they would wilt, so they had to go dormant to survive(Winter, Autumn) and it would be real HOT so they had to conserve water (Summer) and there was one season that is just right (Spring).
Which is how the seasons came to be


Gaelogists also believe in energy and magic, but from yourself and from Gaea(Earth) And you can cast spells but unless you have done everything you could to help the situation Gaea wont think you need help and so she wont, and the spell May not work the way you wanted it too. NOw that I think about it.. hehe it is not that much different from paganism:)

This actually sounds a bit like James Lovelock's Gaia Theory. Think that might be it?

Okay, I think that's the one that considers the earth a self-regulating organism, forget whether or not he considers it sentient. I can't find that one right now, but I did come across another author, Robert Sheldrake, who wrote a New Science of Life. He's into morphic fields, believes that living organisms are shaped and maintained by what he calls morphogentic fields which are molded by the form and behaviour of past organisms of the same species. I've noticed that this one kinda gets a bit mixed into Lovelocks stuff these days but I really think Lovelock is the one you're talking about here, look for his stuff......
