Aside from the traditional biblical view of the Christian God, I’ve noticed a second perspective as to what God is. This idea is more new age and seems to be less talked about despite it always seems to be there in the background. This idea is that God is the totality of the cosmos, being the creation as opposed to the creator. And therefore we are all apart of God. Christ, however, is considered a higher spiritual state of enlightenment. Satan, however, is the state of selfishness, materialism, and apathy. An interesting twist that can allow people to keep their faith without getting caught up in religious dogma. However at the end, I still come to the conclusion that this god does not care about us and we should still rebel.
The human body is made up of many different parts and systems, ranging from the skeleton to the tiniest of blood cell. Over time, cells are born and cells die. We constantly discard parts of our body, albeit tiny insignificant parts, such as hair, skin flakes, or nails. We don’t care about this individual pieces. We discard them when they no longer serve the purpose of the whole with no thought to their preservation. This is how this cosmic intelligence sees us, tiny bits of itself who’s interest that serve the whole and can be discarded.
