And then there’s the essential character of the universe. It is this mechanical system of laws and particles and principles. Utterly devoid of a moral or personal agenda, and instead being an expression of mathematical interactions. Now that could be the signature of a math-centric geek god. But if the cosmos is impersonal and indifferent, that removes any character from creation. We don’t need a god to explain it. Just a big textbook.

If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.
Accept all that happens, even that which is unpleasant, because everything is a part of the health of the universe and the wealth of God.
Man as he is has ceased to be the All. But when he ceases to be a separate individual, he raises himself again and permeates the universe.
Why will you not admit that the universe is a conscious intelligence since conscious intelligences are born from it?
In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.
