    Salaam (Peace) to all.

    There is a saying that "You become like what you worship".

    Can Man "become like" animals, stones, "spooks"?

    The word "worship" comes from the concept of "worthy-ship":

    worship:
    [bef. 900; (n.) ME wors(c)hipe, worthssipe, OE worthscipe, var. of weorthscipe; see worth, -ship; (v.) ME, deriv. of the n.]
    –noun
    1. reverent honor and homage paid to God or a sacred personage, or to any object regarded as sacred.
    2. formal or ceremonious rendering of such honor and homage: They attended worship this morning.
    3. adoring reverence or regard: excessive worship of business success.
    4. the object of adoring reverence or regard.
    5. (initial capital letter) British. a title of honor used in addressing or mentioning certain magistrates and others of high rank or station (usually prec. by Your, His, or Her).

    –verb (used with object)
    6. to render religious reverence and homage to.
    7. to feel an adoring reverence or regard for (any person or thing).

    –verb (used without object)
    8. to render religious reverence and homage, as to a deity.
    9. to attend services of divine worship.
    10. to feel an adoring reverence or regard.

    worth:
    [bef. 900; ME; OE weorth, wurth; c. OHG werd (G wert), ON verthr, Goth wairths]
    –preposition
    1. good or important enough to justify (what is specified): advice worth taking; a place worth visiting.
    2. having a value of, or equal in value to, as in money: This vase is worth 12 dollars.
    3. having property to the value or amount of: They are worth millions.

    –noun
    4. excellence of character or quality as commanding esteem: women of worth.
    5. usefulness or importance, as to the world, to a person, or for a purpose: Your worth to the world is inestimable.
    6. value, as in money.
    7. a quantity of something of a specified value: ten cents' worth of candy.
    8. wealth; riches; property or possessions: net worth.

    —Idiom
    9. for all one is worth, Informal. to the utmost: He ran for all he was worth.

    Synonyms:
    4. See merit. 6. See value.
    value - usefulness in attaining a goal
    So, then, what is the prime "goal" of Man?

    Who or what, other than Man, is qualified...or "worthy"...to GUIDE Man toward the fulfillment of that Goal?

    And how does Man Guide Man?

    Are animals "worthy" to Guide Man?

    Are sticks and stones "worthy" to Guide Man?

    Are "formless spirits" (if there be any) "worthy" to Guide Man?

    Good post...thanks!

    What exactly do you think is possible. Would we spontaneously grow wings if all 7 billion of us are absolutely convinced overnight that we can fly like birds?

    Good break down and excellent question. I guess it depends on where you grew up what your personal beliefs are. What is worthy is in the eye of the human beholder.

    how about you think about the topic and give us your opinion, instead of judging others and expressing your frustrations?

    yeah of coarse. I think worship/ religion/ spirituality is a crutch or maybe a disability to some, and an enhancement for others.

    I was just curious what ktl thought about worship in particular, when the question came to me.

    you could have stopped that question at "what happens when we worship" followed by anything other than Self.....

    to worship anything is giving away your power...ultimately you are one with animals, and men/women and with the universe itself so there is no need to worship it....but even if you do worship....you obey that which you worship.....the Gods of the bible and Quran who are MEN want you to become Gods yourselfs and worship yourself meaning take the highest levels of care of yourselfs and each other....the animals want you to stop this industrial chemical toxic shit....so ultimately worshiping animals would bring to GOd unconciously....but regular men and women have loose wiring.....most people worship men/women particularily in cultural forms

    culture can turn cancerous and become a vampire
