The Book of Druidry by Ross Nichols, the founder of OBOD. In the first paragraph of the first chapter on p. 19, he says, “At no time has Druidry agreed with the idea of evolution from the animal as the main human origin, but has always conceived of a supernal, giant or deific basis to its universal shape.”

What gap? Just because we cannot relate our way of experiencing the world to the way that the non-human world of molecules may (or may not) experience does not mean that there is a gap other than in our understanding/imagination. How do we know what the rest of the material world “experiences”? With leanings towards animism, I find the idea that we are more than a pile of dust, with its implication that a rock, a fallen leaf or a living tree might be less, is too anthropocentric.Whitemane wrote: The real challenge in all of this is the gap between the mechanical and the magical. That is, what makes us human? What turns us from a pile of dust into something with imagination, hopes, dreams, and that can love?
