How would you explain the origin of man made gods?

Dear mister Koetting,

In some of your video’s you mention the idea of certain gods/demons/spirits created by mankind itself throughout different believe systems. I’ve been trying to grasp this concept, linking it to some sort of energy created by the subconscious collective, as the result of humans seeking an explanation for the unexplainable.

According to your video on Azi Dahaka, the dark force Ahriman is said to be created out of nothingness and preceded the light of Ahura Mazda. Does this mean that the source or origin of every entity is the result of an objective reality rather than through creation by human perception?

If Azazel is right, and who am I to contradict him, this approach would lead back to the paradox…
