I am a pantheist. As such, I am a student of human cultures, but even more a lover of the wilderness that supports and informs human culture. I am a pragmatic phenomenologist (i.e., a scientist). I am a trans-rational (but not irrational or anti-rational) mystic. I am not a believer; I do not mistake mythologies, imaginings, and pseudo-sciences for reality.
I am a Mystery (I am even The Mystery), and The Mystery is irreducibly whole and inexhaustibly bright.
