In this video from 2015, he explains that panpsychism is the view that every whole entity in the universe, from the largest to the very smallest, possesses a measure of consciousness. He contrasts panpsychism with materialism, dualism, and idealism. He postulates that panpsychism is consistent with the data of parapsychology and psychical research. He also distinguishes between panpsychism and other similar perspectives including process philosophy, animism, and pantheism.
