I met God the other day: Talking to God…

‘Regrettably?’

They were a beautiful and stunningly successful life form. One doesn’t destroy such things without a qualm.

‘But at that stage how could you know that a better prospect would arise from the ashes?’

I didn’t. But the probability was quite high.’

and since then, what other little tweaks have you been responsible for in our development?’

None whatsoever. I set an alarm for the first sign of artificial aerial activity, as I usually do. Leonardo looked promising for a while, but not until the Montgolfier brothers did I really begin to take an interest. That registered you as a level one intelligent species’

‘If the sign is “aerial activity”, how do you identify technological bird species?’

“Same way. Intelligent flyers rarely become technologists though. They tend to evolve into adapters rather than manipulators but the few exceptions develop flying machines rather more quickly than species like your own because they have a natural understanding of aerodynamics.”

‘but why would a bird need a flying machine?’ 

‘that’s like asking why would your species need cars and other forms of mechanical transport. The technology lets you carry heavier loads, faster and for greater distances than just relying on your own physical abilities.’

OK, so what about our more famous “prophets”; Jesus of Nazareth, Moses, Mohammed…’

hmmm… sadly misguided I’m afraid.  I am not here to act as a safety net or ethical dictator for evolving species. It is true that anyone capable of communicating with their own cells will dimly perceive a connection to me – and all other objects in this universe – through the quantum foam, but interpreting that vision as representing something supernatural and requiring obeisance is somewhat wide of the mark.  And their followers are all a bit too obsessive and religious for my liking. It’s no fun being worshiped once you stop being an adolescent teenager. Having said that, it’s not at all unusual for developing species to go through that phase. Until they begin to grasp how much they too can shape their small corner of the universe, they are in understandable awe of an individual dimly but correctly perceived to be responsible for the creation of the whole of that universe. Eventually, if they are to have any hope of attaining level two, they must grow out of it and begin to accept their own power and potential. It’s very akin to a child’s relationship with its parents. The awe and worship must disappear before the child can become an adult. Respect is not so bad as long as it’s not overdone. And I certainly respect all those species who make it that far. It’s a hard slog. I know. I’ve been there.’

‘So, you’ve been taking more interest in us since the Montgolfier, when was that? 1650s?’

Close. 1783

‘Well, if you’ve been watching us closely since then, what your average citizen is going to want to know is why you haven’t intervened more often. Why, if you have the  power and omniscience that goes with being a God, have you sat back and allowed us to endure such incredible suffering and human misery in the past few centuries?’

One comment on “I met God the other day: Talking to God…

  1. Let me understand something, if I am an adapter and I see and understand how everything works on this planet and in this entire universe I will going to die? I mean, I am One with Everything from this Universe , and Everything from this Universe is One with Me, why should I need technology? I am Everywhere and Everything, I am what I am, nothing more, nothing less, I am the Beginning I am the End, I am Alfa and Omega, and your existence as a Human relays on my will and of course you have your free will. But you forget how to use this precious gift of free will and your decisions are killing you. You, Human, you are a part of me, and I love my self, why you don’t love yourself? Why you don’t love Me? Why you don’t love everything that surrounds you? Do you humans realize that you have been created weapons just to protect yourselves from yourselves? Why are You dying to kill yourselves?
