What do You think God is?

Postby Meno_ » Sat Jan 12, 2019 2:56 am

How do we or you conceive of god?Conception can be a brute force, or an immaculate conception , or even a geometric or a trigonometric calculus of All possible conceptions. It is a semantic notion in the beginning, but advancing by evolution of the body, then the mind and finally , the spirit.

Ill take the geometric conception first,
symbolized by a circle, slowly closing in on the semantic, which overdeveloped around the late middle ages, and developed syntactically until it reached a critical point, around the time of Descartes, and then started to shrink very slowly at first , but then, taking up speed, as it started to react to total human misunderstanding, because of the onset of atheism.

The circle shrunk, as its diameter became more and more linear, and forming the elliptical form .

Fimdally as it started to approach the point. This process started a reversal by a realization of the event , another critical point, whereupon IT would have hidden Itself again into a Singularity. Singularities are worrisome for a god of many universes, but IT is able to compress ALL material manifestations into the Nothingness where Everything is hidden.

This god lasts only an instant cosmic time, when it again explodes into a multiplicity.

Since time is non existent while all this happens, it never happens and god is really a contradictory manifestation .

It is represented. Ying/Yang and other symbols.

How could have such symbols of do as evolve into its significance?
The evolition from the earliest symbolic sign to its most elaborate manifestation is coincidental to the degree that it assumes simulate simultainity, where both the expansion. and the collapse pro a my tales place in such an interval that IT also is an in appearance.

God exists therefore in formless non existence, primarily because that is a vastly superior progression over the basic signs and motives of Being.

God though variously defined is ultimately one of two things : the cause of all that exists or a product of human imagination
Given there be more plausible explanations for observable phenomena then the probability is more likely the latter of these

Or maybe both, comparable to a feed back system, where the product becomes the cause. Then becomes the product again but somewhat changed.

God is a symbol for ultimate reality.

There is what you think God is. And then there is what you are able to demonstrate that all rational men and women are obligated to think that God is.

And then, like all the rest of us, you will die.

I think.

Hey Meno_

You seem to be asking "what" but thinking "where".
