If you were a god it would be a rude thing to do to to expect your creation to feel humiliated and reduced before you. Keep that in mind for a second. One element missing from the monotheistic narrative is the metaphor of the son surpassing the father or the student surpassing the teacher... usually parts that are always involved in the anthropomorphic structuring of this kind of narrative. Note that only in the relationship to God is this part missing.. all other relationships to authority archetypes involve that theme of aspiring to be better and surpassing... a signification of a healthy ethos. Compare the Gnostic variations of man's imperfection and forlorness from god that evolved out of neo platonism.

Now I propose that this element only arrives in a dualistic monotheism where there's a good and bad god working. This way any evil can be attributed to the bad god. Without sch a source for evil man would have no need to interpret his relationship to god as subordinate. He would not be in an imperfect and divided state with God because there is nothing contrary to god, see. The origins of man's pessimistic religious sense begins where man believes he is divided from god... a development out of egypt, zoastrianism, and post-platonic Gnostic thinking. It wasnt until this transcendent notion of god was challenged by spinz, i believe, that man began his intellectual revolution into analytical philosophy and what has become a kind of unanthropomorphic Newtonian deistic understanding of god. Neat how it all worked out. A hermeunetic pattern there. A reorientation of mans pathological religious sensibility.
