The Lord's Prayer is the only prayer Jesus commended to his disciples and is widely used if not heeded. It begins Our Father which in Aramaic is Abba which is a shockingly familiar mode of suggesting this friendly assumption. I think we can infer from what we know of nature or reality or whatever we call what we are in, that this friendliness is present. I cannot conclude anything other than that Peirce did the same. He was more inclined to the tenor of the Lord's Prayer than the devolved elocutions of the author of Revelation. If one wishes to maintain that the universe, or reality, is neutral, that is fine. But it leaves us in just the same place. As persons who live in a penumbra that is more mystery than not even with our semi-conductors and formulae.
