While it might be interesting to ponder the nature of god, I think in the end it's futile.

Once you try to define god, it stops being god. Ideas are always limited. How can an idea encapsulate something that is supposedly infinite in nature?  I think it is possible to have a glimpse of god, but it's not through thinking.

That is all adressed in the video. And your right, it is NOT through thinking at all. But through thousands of hours of raising your consciousness and self deconstruction.

 

Simply to catch a glimpse.

Lol, Silly Humans... understanding less than 1% of all there is to know in the universe and still making hypotheses about the single greatest question ever.

God is the end product of the process of humans atributing agency to nature in an atempt to understand and relationate to it in the time before science. Humans often atribute human qualities to  their gods, gods are often angry or loving thus displaying human like emotions. Gods often want something from humans or controll their lives to their liking.

 

We did not understand nature because of the lack of scientific research thus we did not understand why crops failed, why someone got sick and many aspects of nature that we currently do not ascribe any agency to.

The rule of thumb is if we can understand the mechanism behind something we stop ascribing god like agency to it.

 

We bassically made it all up because we had no real undestanding of nature.

There are no god or god or spirits or whatever, prayer does nothing, there is no universal judgement by a higher power, and  no love ether,  when bad things happen to you it's not because of some supranatural force, also nothing happens after you die.

You can play god of the gaps all you want aka well we don't uderstand this or that so god or gods must have done it, and even tho there is a lot that we don't understand about the universe i do think that i have made a clear case as to why someones so called greatest question ever is just dilusionary thinkig and not taking into acount what we do know about the world.

Sure some of it had to do with no understanding nature, but there is more to it. People for example had mystical / spiritual experiences. I think this is what fundamentally created the idea of god. Then, later on, we slapped on all those human qualities to this god. The idea of god isn't there just to explain things we didn't or still don't understand, but to give a name to something that is at the core of existence itself. Something that is the basis of all existence.
