Did god make us, or did we make god?
This question has been on human minds for millenia.
What we put energy in (believe) grows. It grows in the other dimension – dimension of thought, astral plane or whatever. Hence if we constantly believe in something, that something will get stronger. At some stage, if enough people believe in it, it may actually cross the boundaries between dimensions, and have influence on the material dimension. Just look at the extent of the fanaticism some people will go to. All because they believe in something.
Quoting Jesus, “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”
So, it looks like people knew of this phenomenon for some time now. Furthermore, investigating ancient mythology, gods need our belief, or energy. This was certainly true in ancient Greek culture where people were under the impression that gods’ power diminished when people stopped believing in them. Also, in Kabbalah, god needs us as much as we need him/her.
Back to my original question, did god make us, or did we make up a god? By imagining some being and feeding it energy (our belief, worship, contemplation etc) we made it real (in a sense). To answer the question, we are both one and the same – we can’t separate ourselves from god. We just got ourselves lost in this game, and forgot where we come from. A good game is one that makes you think it’s real, an ultimate illusion, and this one certainly fits the bill.
