Derived from the Greek words pan ('all') and theos ('God'), Pantheism is the doctrine that the universe, taken or conceived of as a whole, is God or that there is no God but only the combined force and laws which are manifested in the existing universe. It regards that the universe or nature as a whole is divine. It is defined as the doctrine that God is neither externally transcendent to the world, as in classical Theism, nor immanently present within the world, as in Panentheism, but rather is identical with the world.
Alan Watts, famous author of books on the philosophy and psychology of religion, defined pantheism as "the conception of God as the total energy field of the universe, including both its positive and negative aspects, and in which every discernible part or process is a sort of microcosm or hologram."
As a religious position, Pantheism embraces that nature is filled with value and worthy of respect, reverence, and awe. As a philosophical position, pantheism is the belief in an all-inclusive unity, variously formulated.
