Interesting, Joe. Have you ever seen Kirlian photographs of the Planaria worm after it has been cut? The photographs show its electrical field — a glowing shroud — unchanged by the damage to the biological body. The worm regrows its body back into that field.
Consider this a metaphor for how we go about the work of regeneration. You could say the Kirlian aura is our intention, or perhaps our engaged energy. Or perhaps it is a Gaian life force guiding us to restore our garden planet.
