I stumbled across something pretty interesting. The Long Now Foundation has a buttload of really interesting seminars that you can download and listen to.
Today, I listened to Paul Hawken’s “The Long Green” talk. He talked about several interesting environmental topics. One thing that got my attention was a question from the audience about what it means for a non-religious person to go to the woods and have a spiritual “oneness with nature” type of experience, and whether or not such a thing constitutes a religious experience, (ala Emerson) or if it would be just a spiritual experience, or if there is any difference between the two.
