everywhere you look violence is in nature from the beautiful burning violence of our sun and other cosmic anomalies to the most simple form of violence like rain hitting the ground.
Definitely Aliens, Ancient cultures and World War 3.
I'm more of a hippie than a barbarian though.
Pantheism is the view that the natural universe is divine, the proper object of reverence; or the view that the natural universe is pervaded with divinity. Negatively, it is the idea that we do not need to look beyond the universe for the proper object of ultimate respect.
When we say that the cosmos is divine, we mean it with just as much conviction and emotion as believers say that their god is God. But we are not making a metaphysical statement that is beyond proof or disproof. We are making an ethical statement that means no more, and no less, than this: We should relate to the universe in the same way as believers in God relate to God. That is, with humility, awe, reverence, celebration and the search for deeper understanding.
