1. i.e. Belief serves the incomplete (i.e. open) as means (or strategy) to completion (or closure).
2. For the pantheist only nature exists. He or she is subject to the laws/constraints and freedoms of nature. He/she may choose to believe that nature ≈ GOD.
3. For ‘nature’ read: whatever is born/emerged as identifiable reality. About the un-born (and the dead as no longer emerged) nothing can be said.
4. Pantheist belief suits the mature who can protect and guide themselves.
5. i.e. The mono-theist, as dualist, such as the Christian or Moslem, believes that his or her (one) God is (vis. exists as ‘omnipotent, omniscient, real and eternal ‘other’) beyond nature, hence a supernature (or supernatural). He or she is subject to unnatural laws/constraints and freedoms.
6. Both believers worship their GOD/God to induce (in fact, superimpose) completion thereby avoiding the discomfort of incompleteness.
7. Monotheistic (i.e. ‘my (or our) one God’) belief is designed to protect and guide the immature.
