This is a “LITE” version of The Zoo Fence.
It was installed on July 9, 2020.
The original website was larger than this,
but not necessarily better.
What’s changed over the past 25 years is us;
we have aged, our focus has changed,
and the website reflects that.
We hope you will enjoy, and find useful, what is here now.
There are still some links from TZF pages to other
TZF pages that generate the “Oops” page.
That is because becoming LITE has retired some pages,
affecting some links that continue to escape our notice.
Hopefully, this issue will be resolved soon.
This index page was last updated on March 27, 2022.
The Zoo Fence was first published in hard copy in January, 1996.
It has been on the internet since February, 1997,
first at America Online, then at GeoCities (from 1/1998), then at OLM (from 7/2000),
and now at InMotion (from 3/2011).
Our thanks to Alan Simpson

and for his book on Netscape Navigator
providing our first introduction to HTML
umpteen years ago.
Please read our DISCLAIMER:
We have no credentials that you too do not have. We are simply spiritual seekers writing here on the basis of our own personal experience. In effect, then, what you find on The Zoo Fence is an expression of personal opinion based upon personal observation of our own lives. Please read it as such. If any of it is of any use to you, we are delighted. But please do not mistake it for authoritative guidance or advice on any subject. We neither wish to, nor are we qualified to, issue anything like that. While this disclaimer applies to everything on The Zoo Fence, it applies all the more to the material at Integral Health concerning any medical, psychological, nutritional, self-help, or any other health-related issue, program, therapy, or regimen. As regards those kinds of questions, we urge you to consult a licensed health-care professional before making any decisions or taking any action. As regards everything else on The Zoo Fence, your best guide is your own common sense.
Inevitably and rightly, there is a lot on The Zoo Fence about scriptures considered sacred by various traditions. As you read those comments and observations, please understand that nothing written here is, or is intended to be, an academic consideration. We are not theologians, biblical scholars, or historians. We are not experts. In the context of this website, our interest in sacred writings is solely as spiritual seekers who have undertaken a personal, inner journey for the Truth of who and what we are. We know that many of our statements, and perhaps even all of our conclusions, will not reflect, and perhaps may even contradict, current orthodoxy, theology, and history. We mean no disrespect by that, but it does not concern us, for again we are not academics, and this is not an academic undertaking. For us, the scriptures of the worlds spiritual traditions are a guide and a tool and a vehicle which can facilitate and accelerate our own passage along the spiritual path only if we understand their message to us. Therefore, we take it to be our duty, even our sacred responsibility, to discover and understand their meaning to us personally, to decipher what the Universal Teacher intends for us to see in them and to do by them. All of that is what we hope to share with you, and we ask that you read it in that spirit.
