“Ten Commandments to Avoid Extinction: Reality’s Rules” by Michael Dowd
My comments after viewing the video:
Michael, I get personification and its idolatrous aspects!
Isn’t there a transcendent dimension of person though? a transcendent dimension of nature and cosmos? …”transcendent” being a separateness from other…”immanent” being our oneness with other.
Without the inter-course of transcendent and immanent aspects of reality, wouldn’t cosmos simply be one big blob of reality convulsing within itself, birthing “little replications” of itself perhaps?
Personhood is about the “Separate yet One-with” relationship we need with the earth, cosmos and each other. With no separateness/only oneness, there is no dynamic relational energy to continuously create ANEW! Without the separateness part of personhood, wouldn’t’ reality be just us humans/trees/whatever responding or not to some cosmos set in motion by some green???
