Consider the evolution of consciousness as the ultimate goal in the evolution of physical form. Is there a consciousness backdrop that is helping life organize to greater complexity? In a multidimensional Universe, are higher dimensions helping organize life on the lower physical plane? This is a key concept that needs to be examined when discussing a theory of GOD, a higher consciousness that purportedly rules over lifeforms.
As single celled organisms evolved into multiple celled creatures, some cells mutated into specialized brain cells. Evolution eventually led to the creation of a central nervous system and the brain. That brain kept getting bigger until a threshold was reached and man gained self awareness and theories of GOD. We see clearly in the natural order higher levels of consciousness corresponding to advancement in physical form, but only humans are self aware.
Self-awareness is the key to GOD awareness, the perception of something greater than self. Did humans really find GOD or did they mislabel their perception? Could it be that humans detected their collective consciousness and called it GOD? Think of this way, if a cell in your body gained awareness that it was part of a larger being of yourself, could it understand what you are? You and your specialized brain cells can understand the cell completely but your individual cell can’t possibly comprehend what you are. To that single cell you are GOD. The cells in your body that make up you have a supra consciousness we call our mind stemming from a neural net of brain cells. In this analogy, the GOD of yourself is the collective consciousness of your single cells.
Likewise you can’t perceive the collective consciousness GOD of humanity because of the limits of perception that an individual has relative to the whole. If a cell would call your mind GOD from its limited awareness, you might call the collective consciousness GOD. With this theory, we can scientifically explain why we have a problem perceiving GOD.
Once the perception of GOD was realized then religions formed along with their adherence to doctrine. Religion is the institution formed to protect and promote the faith from generation to generation, a cultural meme. A meme is like a gene, a cultural concept passed to the next generation, a short term adaptation. Because religions are completely lost in erroneous interceptions of myth, they become distorted with time, fragment, and split into new faiths constantly warring with one another.
All religions are confused because they start with the implied assumption that GOD was separate from humanity instead of sum of humanity being the parents of GOD, the supra-consciousness of man. Christians teach that GOD predated humanity and created the universe in seven days. Fundamentalist Christians attack evolution and ridicule the idea that man evolved from apes. They want to maintain the concept that humans were created by GOD and therefore man must obey the FATHER. They are political and want laws to force people to behave according to their teachings. Their actions betray their evil intention to control the psychic space and limit perception of man so that he never uncovers the truth about his true nature. Religion needs to control perception in order to stay in business.
