The pantheist’s ethos
The pantheist1 believes that all identifiable realities emerge as differential iterations2 of a basic ordering routine.3,4 Completing5 the basic dynamic6 ordering routine7 is an identifiable reality’s ethos.8,9
Each identifiable reality emerges as differential iteration, hence variation of, hence alternative of the basic ordering routine.10
An identifiable reality11 self-drives to avoid loss of identity and realness, thus extinction. It succeeds by increasing order and therefore identifiable reality, thus prolonging existence.
Therefore an identifiable reality’s, that is to say, any and every thing’s ethos is to increase order. Increasing order is the divine act per se.
In practical terms that means upgrading oneself and thereby the ‘ALL’ as aggregate of selves.12

1. For the notion of pantheist substitute the notion of ‘mature adult.’
2. For iterations read: differential recursions.
3. For basic ordering routine read: a basic constraints, hence rules set. The ordering routine is quantised and dynamic, i.e. on-going. Each emerged identifiable reality works as a thermo- (i.e. energy) dynamic system requiring continuous recharging wherewith to sustain its order and so its identity and reality.
4. This is the unitary vision of the adult, namely the wholly altruistic “All for one and one for all.” It observes and experiences that all emerge as variations, hence alternatives of one, i.e. of a basic order common to all. The separation vision, wholly egotistic observation and experience of the immature infant is: “All for me.”
5. i.e. (locally) enacting and so becoming and so realizing theos = GOD.
6. All order systems are dynamic (and quantised). To emerge, survive and replicate they must acquire, i.e. predate or scavenge energy, that is to say, random momentum.
7. Namely increasing order that increases survival capacity.
9. The actual purpose/goal/aim of an identifiable reality is to perfect (i.e. complete) its ethos.
10. In other words, each alternative emerges as recursive albeit differential elaboration of the same basic fractal or algorithm (as a sort of The Universal Turing Machine).
11. That is to say, a unit of order sustained by energy/heat/pressure.
12. The popular mature adult expression of this insight is: ‘The purpose of life is to make the world a better place.’ The infantile = immature, hence henotheist version is ‘The purpose of my life is to make me better.’
