    I personally subscribe to constitutive micropsychism however Panentheism (not pantheism) is completely Biblical due to the Christian notion that God is everywhere.

    What is my reason for addressing this? Christians some times frown on using pan-psychism as proof of that there is an extra-natural or super-natural entity out there.

    first i want to get one thing out of the way
    _______________________
    ON THE EMERGENTISM PROBLEM:
    Every Christian should be familiar with "the emergentism problem". Panprotopsychism (a "bad" form of pan-psychism that would solve the emergentism problem") lines up with materialism but i do not believe Panprotopsychism is valid due to what William James said about "the emergentism problem". I have also my own way of reiterating what he said if you want me to summarize it and what i said about it is somewhat based on the writings of Spinoza. I haven't read alot of what William James said. Spinoza did not seem to conform to Panprotopsychism. Since many of us believe the chief enemy of Jesus Christ exists, it is certainly possible that enemy came up with panprotopsychism.
    _______________________________
    I believe the final anti-christ will use pan-psychism as a stepping stone to produce the final world-wide religion before Jesus Christ comes and destroys the New World Order (or the future derivative of the New World Order).

    The best lie is hidden in 99 truths. Liars often put truths into their lies to hide the lies. I believe pan-psychism points people to the fact that there are extra-natural or super-natural emotional entities (God or angels).

    Pan-psychism produces truth or in its self is a truth. Either way.

    Evil People often use truths to get People to believe lies. The best lie is hidden in 99 truths.

    In short understanding pan-psychism is important for apologetics.

    Daniel chapter 11 and 12 says that in the last days there will be People who have understanding.

    Below is a brief description of panentheism (not pantheism):

    _____________
    • In panentheism, the universal spirit is present everywhere, which at the same time "transcends" all things created.
    • While pantheism asserts that "all is God", panentheism claims that God is greater than the universe. Some versions of panentheism suggest that the universe is nothing more than the manifestation of God. In addition, some forms indicate that the universe is contained within God,[2] like in the Kabbalah concept of tzimtzum. Also much Hindu thought is highly characterized by panentheism and pantheism.[3][4] The basic tradition however, on which Krause's concept was built, seems to have been Neoplatonic philosophy and its successors in Western philosophy and Orthodox theology. -wikipedia
    • _______________
    • Now below i'll post what constitutive micropsychism is:
    • Panpsychism is the view that consciousness is fundamental and ubiquitous. The most promising form of panpsychism is constitutive panpsychism, which we can define as follows: Constitutive panpsychism – Organic consciousness, that is to say the consciousness we pretheoretically associate with humans and other animals, is not fundamental, but is grounded in a more fundamental form of consciousness which is ubiquitous throughout nature.1 Constitutive panpsychism is most commonly construed as a ‘bottom-up’ view: Micropsychism – All facts – including the facts about organic consciousness – are grounded in consciousness-involving facts at the micro-level.

    Very interesting. I never thought of the distinction of there being two ways of looking at it. Thanks.

    How about receiving these things with words that most people understand and also explain what the issues are.

    You must be new to these forums. Smart People recognize that other People are intelligent. Treating People like they are dumb is a bigger sin in this modern age than allowing them to use bing and google. Modern People like to learn new things. get with the club.
