Hi guys! This is my first reader insert, and my first time posting anything on Tumblr (hopefully it formats right?). I encourage comments, and am taking requests until I get too many. If you’re going to make a request, please include the preferred gender of the reader (the person who requested this later asked for a gender neutral reader, which hopefully I did correctly. If i missed anything, please let me know so I can fix it.) and your opinions on language, and possibly a short plot. I am willing to do smut, angst, and most triggers. Shoot me an ask sometime! :)

This is for the lovely @demigodofthesun​. I hope you enjoy! And sorry it got so long…

What is pantheism?

Pantheism is the idea that God is in everything. That God does not sit within the world in judgment but is in all things at all times. God is intrinsic to the universe and immanent.

Although the word “pantheism” is originated with the 16th century philosopher Baruch Spinoza the concept has been around for ages in all religions. Socrates was a pantheist as was Aristotle, Christian thinkers such as Jakob Boehme and Giordano Bruno, Islamic thinkers such as the great philosopher Al-Ghazali, the poet Rumi and the Sufis and modern Western scientists such as physicists Neils Bohr, Albert Einstein and many many others. 

The New England Transcendentalists such as Emerson, Thoreau and the poet Walt Whitman were pantheists as were author John Steinbeck and poet Robinson Jeffers. Even Mikhail Gorbachev former president of the Soviet Union was an outspoken pantheist. Most notably Buddhism and Taoism are pantheistic traditions.

The universal symbols for pantheism are the spiral and the Nautilus shell.

This is such a beautiful and riveting documentary. What I loved most was the humanizing and humorous way they narrated the stories of legendary scientists. Highly recommended, but it’s long, so maybe split it up between two bouts of insomnia.

Three of my favorite Zizek jokes/anecdotes

A man was psychotic, suffering from a delusion that he was a piece of grain. His greatest terror was to be eaten by a chicken. After medication and therapy he was cured. He no longer believed he was a piece of grain. But he was still terrified of being eaten.

“Why?” asked his therapist. “You know you’re not a piece of grain.”

“Yes,” said the man. “But does the chicken know?”

Rabinowitz applies to leave the Soviet Union. The emigration officer asks him, “Why do you want to leave?”

“Two reasons,” Rabinowitz says. “First, I’m worried that if Communism falls, everyone will blame my people, the Jews.”

“But Communism will never fail!” the officer says.

“Yes,” Rabinowitz replies. “That’s my second reason.”

It’s said that the physicist Neils Bohr had a horseshoe nailed above his front door. This is a common tradition in Europe; the horseshoe is believed to ward off evil spirits. Once a friend of his asked, “But you’re not a superstitious man. Do you really believe in this horseshoe?”

“Of course not!” Bohr replied. “But I was told it works even if you don’t believe in it.”

Pantheism

Pantheism is the idea that God is in everything. That God does not sit within the world in judgement but is in all things at all times. God is intrinsic to the universe and immanent, something immanent is spread throughout something, it’s innate, intrinsic and inborn. Although the word “pantheism” is originated with the 16th century philosopher Baruch Spinoza the concept has been around for ages in all religions. Socrates was a pantheist as was Aristotle, Christian thinkers such as Jakob Boehme and Giordano Bruno, Islamic thinkers such as the great philosopher Al-Ghazali, the poet Rumi and the Sufis and modern Western scientists such as physicists Neils Bohr, Albert Einstein and many many others. The New England Transcendentalists such as Emerson, Thoreau and the poet Walt Whitman were pantheists as were author John Steinbeck and poet Robinson Jeffers. Even Mikhail Gorbachev former president of the Soviet Union was an outspoken pantheist. All of these people reject the idea that there is a benevolence in nature. The universe is entirely indifferent to our particular plight. Yet, this is not to say that there is no purpose to existence or to life. Life is the most “purposeful” thing in the universe. Some would say the ONLY purposeful thing in the universe. Other than living creatures what other thing in the universe acts with a directed intelligent purpose? The astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, an agnostic by declaration but one who seems to hold pantheistic beliefs has been quoted as saying “Every account of a higher power that I’ve seen described, of all religions that I’ve seen, include many statements with regard to the benevolence of that power. When I look at the universe and all the ways the universe wants to kill us, I find it hard to reconcile that with statements of beneficence”. He also said “After all, what nobler thought can one cherish than that the universe lives within us all?” Many, including the Dalai Lama consider Buddhism as pantheistic. Many people, especially those in the west who were raised in the Abrahamic religions Christianity, Islam and Judaism, do not understand the difference between pantheism and atheism. They can only comprehend “God” as a personal God like Yahweh who is within the world. The idea that God is something else to them seems atheistic. However, the idea of a “God as everything” is more readily accepted in Islam because it is seen as blasphemous to limit Allah who is by definition without limits. The universal symbols for pantheism are the spiral and the Nautilus shell. I wear a spiral pendant at all times. It is a great way to meet other pantheists. We are everywhere! ๑ Samsaran ๑
