Will we become gods?
    #1556729 - 05/17/03 09:35 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Had an interesting thought. The bible says (for clarification, I'm agnostic, there is simply no way to be sure) that god created us in his image. Now imagine a race of people that eventually became gods. Ours simply decided to create a playground for himself to experiment with. What if they had advanced to the point that they no longer remembered what it was like early in their development. Or maybe he is like a palentologist researching a species development. What better way to discover the way a species lived that to actually observe it while it elvolved. Do you think we will ever develop god like abilities?

Or maybe we already are GODS?! maybe it means that we were all once ONE or GOD. and now we have expanded to fit that image. the all encompasing, all realizing (all together of course). *fitting gods image*

What?

We are gods. We are just trapped in a decaying shell.  :tongue:

I mean will we ever evolve to the point that our mind will develop god like abilities. The ability to manipulate our environment at will for one. The psychic abiities some claim already exist, but even more than this. These would seem very limited compared to what God can supposedly do. I think that if you think these abilities will eventually develop, then you must already think they are latent abilities within ourselves.

I think the planet will be long destroyed and the human race wiped out long before we have time to develop such abilities. With the corporations in control how long do you think the human race has left?

Perhaps the dinosaurs were closer to god than humanity - they lasted 140 million years. Any bets on humans lasting that long?

Although I think there exists a very real possibility of a mass extinction, I believe that a viable number of humans would remain alive to repopulate the species. Even in the event of a global catastrophe such as asteriod impact, or some sort of genetically engineered super virus, some of the population will be able to forsee the event and ensure some of the species remains alive in some isolated place free from danger.

We already have that ability. You just have to know how to use it.



By the way i see you just finished reading illuminatus trilogy, good work. Don't feel cocky though, you've got a long way to go. A very long way.

I finished reading the Illuminatus Trilogy 8 or 9 years ago so  how long do I have to go before I get where?  Am I closer to this destination then you thought before?

And what ability do we already that I haven't learned how to use?  Why is everyone keeping secrets from me? :wink:

our concept of "god" will expand, along with our minds so... no, we will never become gods.

I am with some of the others.. we already are Gods.. we have just forgotten. It's awakening to our sovereignity and abilities as creators more than anything.

I like thinking like this. Everything is overrated. Everything becomes less cool when we're it. Like driving isn't as cool when you can drive, drinking isn't as cool when you can drink, being an adult isn't as cool when you're an adult. How many times have you heard if I could I'd go back? Why is this if being a adult is the top? It sucks not having anything higher to go to. Everyone always wants more and thats hard to get if you already have everything.

I think if I were a god I'd make myself a human, or atleast part of me, so I could do it all over. I would make myself be born and not remeber what its like to be a god until I die and become one again so it'll be that much sweeter.

Makes you wonder about our origins :smile:

I sometimes these two feelings which could actully be related.

One is that God is addicted to the feeling of becoming god so he keeps making more of use so he can keep feeling it over and over again. Kinda like thae people that love falling in love. They dont like not being in love and dont like the end result of being in love but they like falling into it.

And sometimes I feel as if this whole reality is a by product of being on a drug and way out of it. Its possible that "I" am just the feeling of god getting the feeling of not being god. Like I am god or part of him but I dont know it. Which actully goes along well with the idea of millions saying we're all god or part of god or something to that effect.
