    I don't mean this in the religious context, Because that's just a debate I'm not looking for, I mean, In your Opinion, What makes a God a God, is it immortality? power? Wealth? Knowledge? What Makes a God, A deity, And is Such a being even possible? Has there ever been a God? are there, Gods?

    What Basically is a God?

    so,
    I am convinced that reality is an invention
    it is an invention of consciousness.
    and it is a wonderful invention.
    not saying that "god" is the one that figured it out,
    just that once you have seen it, it is not that hard to copy.
    god is the one that made where we currently live.
    and as far as I can tell,
    this place matches the rules for the initial programming of AI
    the more rules you start with, the faster it ends.
    so if god sets any rules past offering reality to us, it will end
    so... this reality matches a hand off god,
    just a place for consciousness to evolve

    anyway,
    given the rules of physics and how they play out,
    I am pretty sure that this is why many people think that this place is a simulation

    anyone that doubts there is some sort of "god"
    go look at where you are from
    and I mean really go look.
    that is where you will find the answers for yourself

    I know the question seems like it's a loaded question, Especially considering I had a cranky morning. I woke up with some sort of migraine and a lot of energy, It was rough. But no, There are no strings attached to this one, I was just curious what people consider God to be, Like an advanced life form, something beyond comprehension. Can there be only one?. Things of that nature.

    I have actually taken surveys of what people thing god is
    and it seems to me as if the most popular is "the one that created where we live"
    so I took that data I went looking....
    I found someone.

    Any sort of god must surely be an invention going by what you said, a place for consciousness to evolve, obviously the gods we have known through the ages of man need not evolve, they seem to be fully evolved arrogant pricks, the whole lot of them...So I go with inventions...Not saying there are no higher beings or powers, those types just do not get much involved in this reality...

    The God that is supposed to have been created by your thoughts has not been created..in this time frame. Your humans have created all sorts of gods..but not that GOD. Its embarrassing to mention gods name in any of the religions here on earth. The statues in the pictures are all not welcomed when it comes to the 'real spiritual world.

    It's really hard to explain because I and my people deal with time, programs and doors. Every religion on earth at the present, have had doors opened, in which, just does not fit, the entire logical program, of what religion and the spirit world means.

    When you here mortals use the word 'The father' when talking about god. That door or program 'the father' is a door that not only is not suppose to be there but its actually a virus..a virus that from our calculations has closed 27 doors to the truth and reality of what a spirit is.

    When you look at all the studies and pictures of prophets and gods that particular door whom someone in time opened up has closed 34 doors to the spirit world.

    Just the program of the father and the pictures and statues have a total of over 50 doors that are closed at the moment over 2000 viruses AND A LOT OF CURSES within the bloodlines of all races.

    The petty gods that have been created through time are petty gods..the god that your talking about has not been created through you as a COMPLETE human race.

    There will be a time in the future, when it will be revealed, the first and real testament and what was hidden from the mortals for over 10,000 years. There will be a time in which all races on earth, will believe in just that one 'Specific Spirit' that one God..not the father not a statue, not a picture......just that one God that made all happy.

    Eternal religion or "sanatan dharma" equals Sat-Chit-Ananda or eternal existence-eternal awareness-eternal bliss/ever-new joy. When we talk of "God" from those claiming to "know" or become "self aware" of their own nature as one and the same as said "God", it is this Sat-Chit-Ananda that "is" the "AM THAT I AM". In more scientific term an underlying Singularity that is known not by intellect, but by intuition, this is very problematic by those of very rational or logical minds (1s and 0s), as logic cannot grasp such a concept beyond space and time. Within our own limited 5 senses, as long as we are limited to using, along with the rational thought, we cannot grasp God.

    I would argue only God exists (form of pantheism) and we are one and the same, and it's a matter of individual points of infinite possibilities (souls) experiencing and unfolding awareness to that Sat-Chit-Ananda Singularity in their own free-will pace and path dictated by unique desires to be fulfilled and mishaps in false identifying with a physical form, country, race, sex, etc, that is more a part of the holographic universe.

    I'm not "awake" to God so only speak from hypothetical term which I believe to be the case. It's a starting point and progress comes inconsistently, difficult to overcome maya ("Satan" or cosmic illusion) and false identity as the son of man or ego needs to be killed for the Great Goal to be reached.

    I like that theory, I have considered before, That If there is a God,

    Which, I do have my beliefs on the issue. But that is not for here, I don't really discuss my spirituality online much, However on to the thoughts. I have considered, That if God exists, Then we may be nothing but thoughts or dreams inside the mind of this being. It's most certainly an interesting thought.

    And I can't help but think how much, Cosmic web imagery, actually looks like brain cells,

    I understand your position of keeping some spiritual aspects private. Certainly there have been a few most important ones I've had which I don't share with anyone, unless right time came to do so.

    In my opinion to become a God one must reach a level capable of creating an entire universe.
    I do believe there are entities in the multiverse that have achieved that level and beyond.
    It could very well be that there is a god for each universe or universes.

    Start over.

    Science would result in the exact same fasion I'm not so sure that religion would fashion the same results with a different cast or in a different time.

    Does an ape see us as Godlike or as another animal. Are we still evolving or have we arrived. Will another species evolve from ours.

    Certain animals made the grade and became established in the world, others perished in the process. We have it by the chin straps in comparison to any other but no have better truth than the wild ones.

    I like to think we will evolve from human to the next level and further on to a point where we leave this planet and in our wake we leave life here to adapt and repeat the process.

    I think the divine is energy manifested from human consciousness and emotions.
    Some people will attribute names to these energies, hence why there are so many archetypal characters found within separate pantheons.

    I've heard a theory something like that called the Akashic field, Akashic records - Wikipedia
    A place where it is thought that all human consciousness is interconnected.

    I agree with Zeke - the myriad texts from Eastern mysticism clearly and consistently point to a model of the universe as a single conscious entity, which is the origin of our own consciousness as well. So when the great mystics of history make declarations like "I am That," or "I am God," "All is bodhi mind," or even "All is love," they're all saying the same thing: they've suddenly awakened to the true origin of consciousness and therefore identify with the entire cosmos, observing itself through their eyes. I think that nearly everyone has the capability to realize that experience personally, but it rarely happens because the internal monologue acts like a sedative, keeping us asleep to the truth; thought is like a drug - and a very addictive one at that. Meditation is the method of breaking that addiction. Unlike most people, I don't see mediation as a specific technique to be practiced in any specific position or place - you can do it walking down the street. By relaxing internally and feeling very present wherever you are and whatever you're doing, you can awaken from the slumber of thought, and see the truth for yourself. I don't think there's anything supernatural or mystical about it actually; it's no more mystical than waking up in the morning. It's just far, far more rare, because it takes a sustained intent spanning weeks and months. Most of us have insufficient attention spans to conduct a prolonged experiment like that.

    The evolutionary angle is interesting too, and you can sort of think of evolution as a kind of ascension. I mean, when you think about it, the capability to open a book and learn how to do something new, is pretty magical - not all that different than Neo downloading Jiu Jitsu so he can spar with Morpheus.

    But the fun stuff is looking ahead. I think we haven't even begun to fully utilize the capacities of the human brain - reading and logical reasoning are just the beginning imo. Neuroplasticity means that we can intentionally sculpt the neurological processes of our brains, if we wish. A crude example is seen when people learn how to break stone blocks with their hands - they've actually created neural pathways in their brain so they can flex a number of different muscles simultaneously to deliver incredible power to a single spot at a specific instant. It's fascinating to wonder about all the other kinds of things we could do, if we put our mind to it. I don't rule out telepathy; there's too much compelling testimony that it happens sometimes, though I have no idea how it works.

    And technologically we'll be able to perform all kinds of "miracles" if we continue to progress. I think that immortality is achievable, one way or the other, through biotech. We'll probably also learn how to manipulate our capacity for learning, and probably even our base intelligence level. And we've already seen so much in practical technologies - communicating around the world with a small device in our hands, and "seeing" the other side of the planet in essentially real time using video conferencing. Alexander the Great would've marveled at the things we can do today - they'd seem like divine powers. Eventually we'll learn to control the global ecosystem, and terraform exosolar worlds, and travel across the galaxy at FTL speeds, and one day we'll be able to explore even other galaxies, and eventually even travel beyond the cosmic horizon to explore galaxies that we can't even observe right now.

    And it's only a matter of time and innovation before we can print any object we want, like they do in Star Trek. Physical teleportation is a tricky one, but I think that one day we'll figure it out. With the right technology, we'll probably be able to manifest any object we want with a simple device, by just thinking about it - though from our perspective it'll probably involve sorting through a string of menus to pick the thing we want to make, nearly instantaneously.

    Science and technology hold the promise of realizing all kinds of god-like qualities, both biologically and externally. It'll all be made possible by a deepening understanding of physics, but that doesn't make it any less wondrous in application.

    Eventually we'll reach the point where we'd appear to be god-like to a human living today. And that's why I think that people who assert that some extraterrestrial encounters are "too bizarre" to explain with the ETH are completely myopic. In a million years, or a billions years, if our line of evolutionary biology and technology continues, we'll be performing feats that vastly exceed our comprehension today.

    That's what we're fighting for: a future where we have astounding mastery over physical nature and ourselves, where we can be or do nearly anything that we can imagine.

    This is why I believe A.I and Quantum A.I will be vital for our future development. I know that some people fear the possibility of what A.I could do, But we will have fail safes and regulations that will prevent that I assume. I feel a Quantum intelligence could do so much for our technological development, It may even be beyond current imagination. :)
