If you wondered whether I like the Gaea Theory, it would have been more
efficient to ask directly rather than trying to winnow. And how about
instead of "suggesting" things you just come right out and say them?

What are you looking for here? To move the discussion into the realm of
epistemolgy? To discuss the meaning of certainty? To talk about different
forms of communication? Are you "suggesting" that humans and non-humans
never communicate with each other?
I don't understand if you're actually interested in what I have to say, or
if you want to have an argument. I already agreed with you that "spiritual"
was not a good choice of words.
