The Bright Line

Insofar as a god is transcendental, it does not meddle in or care overmuch about the affairs of the microcosmic – that is to say mankind. In fact, it’s highly doubtful a physical mind, constructed of meat and a bit of electricity, could accurately grasp – much less convey – even the grossest permutations of such a mind.

Once a god involves itself with the microcosmic, once it cares deeply about exactly how it’s being worshiped and whether or not its followers enjoy sexual intercourse in only such and so a fashion, then it has, for all intents and purposes, lost the transcendence mankind deems necessary for its gods to possess.

This is the Bright Line between a god and a construct of man.
