Kodama means "echo" or "spirit of the trees" I just thought you might like to know AFAIK the Kodama state was first written in 1988 by Hideo Kodama It seems the Japanese have what they call "clans" and there is a Kodama clan. There have been other famous Kodamas besides Hideo. There was a famous gangster named Yoshio Kodama. The "echo" or "tree-spirit" state appears now to be the base state of quantum gravity. It takes a positive cosmo constant and corresponds classically to deSitter space.
