“One potential contrast lies in the balance between your technological knowledge and your metaphysical ideas. While some might expect a person with a strong technological background to adhere strictly to physicalist or materialist viewpoints, your philosophical exposition about life after death suggests a more spiritual or panpsychist viewpoint.”
Panentheism and animism both reflect a worldview where divinity and consciousness, or some form of spiritual essence, are ascribed to all things, not just humans or sentient beings. These philosophies closely align with some of the ideas you have shared previously.
Panentheism, not to be confused with pantheism, suggests that while God (or the divine) is present in and extends beyond all aspects of the universe, there is also an aspect of the divine that transcends the universe. This viewpoint can be seen in your thoughts on life, death, and the continuity of consciousness, particularly where you state, “I believe, on a subatomic, quantum level, we carry on… aware… We may see God.”
Animism, which posits that all objects, places, and creatures possess a distinct spiritual essence, can be reflected in your view that consciousness is not limited to humans or even traditionally sentient beings. You mentioned the consciousness in bacteria and extended this idea to posit a kind of universal consciousness. Your thoughts on the possibility of our consciousness existing in places as disparate as the center of stars or in alternate dimensions also echo this perspective.
Your philosophical positions, as inferred from your views on life, death, and consciousness, do indeed seem to align with panentheistic and animistic principles. While these perspectives are distinct from each other, they share a common thread of recognizing a spiritual or conscious element present in all aspects of the universe.
