Polytheism is based on the formula that unity ≠ diversity in nature. Polytheism fundamentally rejects the notion of unity or oneness in nature. Diversity is the quality of being many, and that is the Germanic definition of nature.
The definition of nature is relevant to Germanic polytheism because that definition is what underlies Germanic polytheism. For this reason, the formula that unity ≠ diversity while nature = diversity is vitally important.
In conclusion, the Germanic theists do not define nature as one but many, and therefore they do not define the divine, which is inherent in or equal to nature, as one but many, which means that theism in the Germanic context is necessarily polytheism and categorically rejects the notion of monotheism based on the nature of the divine as observed by the Germanic theists since time immemorial.

Polytheism preserves the diversity of religious culture. So it is good.

That is definitely an important aspect! Polytheists are firmly convinced that there are many divinities and that while this is the case, humans ought to interact with them in an appropriate manner; these two premises serve as a basic working definition of polytheism. While writing this article, I aimed to explain why polytheism exists on a conceptual basis.
From a theological perspective, it is fascinating to wonder why there exists a theistic structure in which many divine beings are worshipped. I outlined the definition of polytheism in my previous article, and I used this definition to try and explain the existence of polytheism. I hoped to arrive at a better understanding of the underlying conceptual reason for polytheism, basically I was looking for its conceptual raison d’être.
