    I might hope that Process could become far more widely espoused, given that when it comes to application, I find myself thoroughly in agreement with most Process Theologians (obviously including yourself). There is a problem, however, which I think is expressed in something which Tripp Fuller (of Homebrewed Theology, and a recent graduate of Claremont) said, which was loosely “Going Process is not like adding another program to your computer, it’s more like installing a whole new operating system”.

    This is very much my own problem in approaching Process – the language of Whitehead, on which it is all based, is difficult – I find thinking in terms of “prehension” and “concrescence” extremely challenging – but even more than that, so much of our thinking is based on things interacting with each other rather than on events running on into other events that, while I think I may have got my head round the language to some extent, actually *thinking* in terms of events rather than things seems to be a step beyond what my brain can manage.

    Clearly, for you, things like a mystical sensibility flow from Process, which should make me a natural for Process, given that I am at root a mystic – but I can’t seem to see that Process flows naturally from the mystical experience.

    Given these challenges, is it realistic to expect the huge growth in Process thinking which you anticipate (and which I’d be perfectly happy to see, if I could only get my head round it better)?
