What's in a name? As Shakespeare put it, "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." You're talking about common human response to elemental architectural qualities. Probably we can agree about much of this, but we may not think of it as "sprituality." That 's a loaded term, at least for me, laden with all sorts of religious implications. I'm not a religious person, and certainly do not look to any religion for guidance--certainly not to avert a "clash of civilizations"! Religion is more the problem than the solution.

I think it's more promising to recognize that what we have in common is our humanity. It may be counterproductive to refer to common human responses in terms that carry fuzzy religious connotations.
