New Age is not a single world view or a religion as it is perceived by a majority of its followers. You could say that it is an attempt at unifying all spiritual aspects of humanity into a coherent whole. Many of those who are interested in New Age perceives the universe as a unity, a coherent whole, a single organism whose parts are inextricably linked and influence each other.

The universe consists not of dead matter, it is not a soulless machine - and not random chance works - but it is of a dynamic, living and ever-creating intelligent consciousness. It is consciousness that is the universe's matter. New Age does not see the world as a something that God created outside himself, but rather that the universe creates itself with its own inherent intelligence. Everything that exists is considered to be manifestations of living spirit.
