P.S. I believe alot of the spirit worship (stones, trees) etc is very much about respecting things within the environment, and not just assessing them on economic value (which externalises the value such things have in enriching our lives).

There have been quite a few published arguments for this approach as opposed to the judo-christian approach of the world being there to service human needs.
