God Between the Numbers, Part 3: We Have All Been Here Before–Immanent Infinity and Cyclical Time

Any apparent progress along a spectrum of linear time is like the counting of elements in any finite set: it implies the choice of parameters by an observer. These parameters form the beginning and end of a segment of an immanent infinity that is itself without beginning or end. Without the perspective of finite parameters established for the purpose of measurement, there is no “first moment in time,” just as there is no first number. Continue reading

God Between the Numbers, Introduction: The Pantheism Problem

Spiritual literature doesn’t derive its potency from logic or reason or historical accuracy or scientific veracity. It is powered by personal authenticity. It creates an alchemical blend of fact and fantasy to activate that gnostic engine of Self-remembrance, access deeper levels of our consciousness than we generally see and utilize in a world demanding sharp sensory attentiveness, and achieve the harmonic convergence of heart and brain that only the individual soul can feel and know has occurred.

Dialectical Spiritualism: The Synthetic Elegance of Pantheism –Postulates

Pantheism presents the universe as a ubiquity of both matter and mind. There is no separating one from the other, because they are two distinct ways of looking at the same thing, like the noun “dancer” and the verb “dance.” Continue reading

Dialectical Spiritualism: The Synthetic Elegance of Pantheism — Introduction

Pantheism as a genuine wisdom path and faith alternative is emerging before our eyes as it matures and grows in both visibility and viability. As such, the idea that one can identify with a pantheism that is clearly distinct from both thesis and antithesis is a novel proposition that even pantheists are slow to embrace. Continue reading

A Pantheist Takes On the Problem of Evil

I’ll be honest. Sometimes it really sucks to be a pantheist. Not when I’m in my own company, mind you, nor in that of most other people. In fact, the sucking really just occurs when I’m trying to have a serious conversation in the simultaneous midst of two particular groups of people: theists and atheists. … Continue reading

The Dual Overview Effect of Pantheism

In April 2017, a collective of space enthusiasts and provocateurs calling themselves the Autonomous Space Agency Network (ASAN) launched a weather balloon with a camera and a message for the current president of the United States of America. Billed as the “first protest in space,” it was intended to speak against the administration’s proposed budget … Continue reading

All Is Mind: A Fresh Look at Spinozan Panpsychism, Part 1

“So then, who are you? The organism is inseparable from its environment, so you are the organism-environment. You are no less than the whole universe. Each one of you is the universe expressed in the place you feel as here and now. So when you feel that you are a lonely, isolated, little stranger confronting … Continue reading

Pantheism for Dummies (I mean “Dittoheads”)

Oh, Rush. You’ve done it again. One could build a fairly comprehensive and accurate dictionary just by taking the definitions you give to words that you don’t understand, and writing the opposite. A recent victim of your linguistic vericide was “pantheism.” To refresh your memory, here are some quotes from The Rush Limbaugh Show, a … Continue reading
