We have seen that the founding fathers of ecology in America had a sensitivity quite in keeping with Nature Mysticism, and so it is a good question to ask: can Nature Mysticism be the spiritual foundation for ecological thinking? This would imply that some kind of synthesis is possible between spiritual and scientific thinking, but we have seen that this leads with Sheldrake into a form of animism or Shamanism. We are interested however in a Nature Mysticism that is based on the jnani concept of transcendence, and individuals that respond to this form of spirituality are rarer than those that may resonate with animism.
