The ideas of separation between the spirituality of atheists(the prickly), and the spirituality of others(the goo) are explained in this video(very mind-expanding), along with the true meaning of life; answering why we are here, what we are doing, and what we should be doing.

Alan Watts, IMO one of the most brilliant humans of the twentieth century. Literally the father of non-dual understanding of the human existence in the western world. Long before the 60's and spiritual quests being trendy, he was deconstructing the illusionary mind and its relative concepts.
Your life will never be the same, in fact it won't even have to be yours anymore.
Enjoy the trip!

Alan Watts was able to 'popularize' basic Buddhist philosophy in the US that had existed for 2500 years prior in Asia. Buddhism is all about creating a major paradigm shift within oneself. Learning to understand that the endless grasping of ego gratification will lead nowhere and that all we need for true peace and happieness exists in this moment.
