    Geez: truth comes by trial and error

    I like the idea of a Department of Experimental Truth. It sits nicely alongside a quote I've been trying out at 'Finding Heaven in the Ordinary' workshops, by sociologist Ben Highmore, who encourages explorers of the everyday to ‘practice a kind of heuristic approach to social life that does not start out with predesignated outcomes.’ Or to put it more plainly, arriving at the truth (or at a sense of 'heaven') comes by trial and error.

    As so often before I'm grateful to Jonny for an introduction to Geez Magazine, which tells us that it has 'set up camp in the outback of the spiritual commons. A bustling spot for the over-churched, out-churched, un-churched and maybe even the un-churchable. For wannabe contemplatives, front-line world-changers and restless cranks.' I think I may fit their reader profile. Like Adbusters, Geez comes from Canada. There's two back issues in the post to me tonight. More soon....
