Note: The essays are listed naturally, therefore in the original sequence in which they were generated. Consequently they reflect the evolution of insight so that later insights may make earlier ones redundant.

Pantheism is the belief that all is God. By all is meant every single bit (as whole quantum) of hardware and software that makes up the universe.
By God the pantheist means: G.O.D., an acronym standing for General (meaning: basic) Ordering Device.
In short, the pantheistís G.O.D, elsewhere named SELF, acts as an algorithm Ė as set or rules Ė that responds automatically to disorder by ordering it. The collective of the emerging (side-) effects of the ordering process, i.e. its apps (i.e. now named selfies), happen as the cognizable universe.
The pantheistís G.O.D. is activated by continuing disorder (resulting from shock, as in the Big Bang) that threatens the dis-continuance (i.e. death) of ordered emerged effects (such as the human or any other selfie).
The pantheistís G.O.D. functions as a distributed network, hence is fully democratic.
The G.O.D. function is digital, hence Its apps quantised.
The pantheistís G.O.D. is blind, automatic and self-regulating (hence an automaton), as are all ITs emergent properties, to wit. its localised apps (as selfies), such as the human, the blade of grass, the virus and so on.
The earliest, most primitive, infantile-like humans were pantheists. They responded to and so worshipped all the forms of nature as Gods. Their belief and way of life were eliminated by the more highly evolved (and politically expedient) great (albeit adolescent) henotheistic (i.e. worshipping one selected God-as-monarch), hence tyrannical religions, such as Christianity, Islam, the bulk of Hindu religions, Buddhism and so on.
Now the world is evolving, indeed is forcing itself to evolve and mature more rapidly as the prospect of human self-annihilation comes into focus. And with evolving maturity and the insight and experience which that brings, the belief in pantheism, albeit in more sophisticated form, namely as meta-theism, is emerging. And meta-theistic pantheism that is the belief not only in the fundamental democracy (meaning distributed network function) of the G.O.D. as ordering function but also the belief in the gradual emergence and evolution of the world as manifestation of and identical with the G.O.D. function and which places the burden of ordered evolution on the shoulders of the human.
The essays listed on the left are attempts at generating a more detailed and linguistically updated understanding of 21st century pantheism. The further down the list the more sophisticated and interesting they get.
