SPIRITUALITY: Deep thoughts...

According to the "Gaia Hypothesis" earth itself is an organism. If true, if earth, Gaia, can be thought of as a single organism, could not we humans essentially be her consciousness? Not by some grand design, but merely by evolution. Evolution needs no direct architect, it is an automatic process. Creatures don't choose to evolve.

If life, when viewed as a system, can create and maintain conditions suitable to sustain itself, isn’t that the same as saying ‘that which creates, creates itself’ (a paraphrasing of the quote attributed to the great poet John Keats)? Life and Art when viewed as processes are nearly one and the same.

And lastly, perhaps divinity is an experience, not an entity. Perhaps the process is sacred. God is details.
