Calibrating the instrument is important in any scientific process. "Worship" has been proposed. The instrument might be "mind" or "spirit" or another name for it might be proposed. You have raised an interesting area of thought and inquiry.

Yet the astronomer in each of us wants this to be a cosmic religion. So we must worship the most nearby concentration of energy:

WORSHIP THE SUN

And it is also appropriate to worship the fire, our local energy source.
