Even now I imagine that I can feel all the particles of the universe nourishing my consciousness just as my consciousness informs all the particles of the universe". Jacquetta Hawkes
Green is driven by a spiritual emotion be it of a religious or non-religious source.
It starts within the Individual and can be triggered by a general love of Nature or a feeling of goodwill towards others.
Green is romantic and idealistic, utopia seeking ...
It can be 'airy fairy' but that is a positive, conducive to Creativity and Innovation.
Eastern cultures, especially the Oriental ones like India, China and Japan, have had a historical pre-disposition to a Spirituality in Nature.
The Tao is one such example, and so is the spread of Buddhism and its derivative of Zen.
Somehow, these cultures are able to fuse complimentary spiritualities with each other, with the greatest of ease, as if it were obvious and absolutely nothing to it.
The Japanese Haiku poetry is a powerful means of focusing thoughts through minimalistic expression ... Zen like explosions.
It typically uses a 5-7-5 syllable count, resulting in acute, incisive thought angles e.g.
The clouds come and go, providing a rest for all the moon viewers

So it is a 'techno-spirituality' that we seek to promote, that cybernetic, black and white, 1s and 0s of Boolean Algebra can take on the Colours of the Cosmos, that the neutrinos arriving in Gran Sasso faster than the Speed of Light should be celebrated as the Magic of the Universe ... instead of model breakers upsetting the Physics Apple-cart.
Quantum physics is "weird sh%t!" ... so too are the Calabi-Yau dimensions, all half a dozen of them, and counting, so tightly curled that they are sub-Planckian; yet in their weird tiny way they are Pillars of M-String Theory!
