He died of an apparent suicide last Sunday. iirc, he was a lapsed Catholic; he embraced some sort of New Age spirituality, which also included some sort of Gaia worship/veneration. But while the Earth may be harmed because of our sins, it has not died so that we may be redeemed. I don't know if his spirituality could be considered pantheist; at times he thought like a materialist, with respect to collapse and population "overshoot" - nothing transcending material reality, no providence. Did he think there was a spark of the divine within us? Or was he engrossed with a bleak outlook? A sad death at the beginning of Holy Week. Kyrie eleison.
