Actually, "In Nomine" (a new RPG from Steve Jackson Games), which I had
a chance to thumb through yesterday, has a very interesting context of a
"symphony" or ultimate pattern of all existence. Various objects exist at
various level, there is categorization into forces an explaination of how the
spiritual world informs the corpreal one...etc,etc.

It reminds me somewhat of the "Gaia" hypothesis crossed with Bloom's ideas
of the "superorganism" and retold through the mythology of Christianity.
Heady stuff, very interesting. Plus it has all kind of Angels and Devils and
conflict and hypothetical crises and stuff to keep one from dealing with life.

What could be more fun?
