    "hierarchical cultures actually have a very low tolerance for mysteries that are genuinely mysterious"

    …and yet we love ghost stories. And highly hierarchical cultures tend to be steeped in religion, which depends on stories of the inexplicable – miracles, god's nature etc.

    So it seems we tolerate the mysterious when it underpins authority…and when it's a little thrill, safely kept in the bounds of a campfire story, or a TV serial.

    I really enjoyed that, nice work Jack 🙂 I particularly like the little bits about 'stray shells' and temporal cross-pollination 🙂

    me too, and the bit about ice-blue moonlight in caverns of footprints.
    Marx may have majored on the hand, but where and how we tread matters too.

    This is great stuff. I can't wait for more adventures of the Whoopi Goldberg incarnation of The Doctor.

    Was this the Christmas special?

    Gone off Whoopi since she started defending Bill Cosby.

    Damn. 🙁
