Panendeism (or pan-en-deism), pronounced pænˈenˈdeɪˈĭzˈəm, is derived from the Greek pan (πᾶν), meaning all, en (ἐν) meaning in, and deus (Δεύς), meaning god. The earliest known use of the term was in 1995 by Jim Garvin1, a Korean War veteran and Catholic turned Trappist monk. Garvin described his concept of deity as being similar to the "all-pervading Great Spirit" of the Native Americans, and called it "Pan-en-deism." The term “panendeism” was officially proposed more recently by Larry Copling in 2001.
Panendeism is an ontological position that explores the interrelationship between God (The Cosmic Mind) and the known attributes of the universe. Combining aspects of Panentheism and Deism, panendeism proposes an idea of God that both embodies the universe and is transcendent of its observable physical properties. Although examples of panendeistic thought can be found as early as the 1st millennium BCE, it was not until nearly 3,000 years had passed, at the dawn of the 20th century, that these ideas began to gain traction as a prevailing scientific model of reality.
