I have tentatively attempted a crude conclusion for myself of Spirit of Place within the context that I have been thinking about it and offer it here:
Spirit of Place can be understood as something, (energy), that is divined through the senses, - including the 6th and 7th senses of animal magnetism and telepathy - and importantly through our intuition. This divination can work on a conscious and subconscious level, and is meshed into complex networks of information and interpretation that create an experience, which in turn is transmitted. This forms an ever accumulating energy or information field that might have a specific or non-specific location, both materially, non-materially, or in time.
How as individuals we experience this is dependent on our specific information and networks as well as our ability to read and interpret 'the field' or its transmissions.
