Please give a concise definition of panpsychism. What I have seen on line seems to hinge a bit much on "pyschist" phenomenon which are mainly defined in terms of the "paranormal" or outside science. So I am confused. About the best spin I can have on it is some loose notion that all things take part in sentience at some level.
