At the end of the article I was talking about the natural universe as it's explained by science and philosophy. So that universe is objective, impersonal, and amoral, although I maintain it has an aesthetic aspect which makes for a pantheistic resurgence and for a reconstruction of existential morality.

You criticize this by saying it leaves out the deeper contents of introspection, which makes for panpsychism or for the metaphysical primacy of mindless consciousness.

I would suspect that the experience of that deep consciousness may be real and profound, but that the metaphysical interpretation of the mystical experience is questionable.
