So, how’s it going?
Apprentice: Same old same old. Strife, war, peace at places. Nothing out of the ordinary.
God: Hmm, something I expected, but really hoped it wouldn’t come to.
Apprentice: Really, you actually don’t know the course this world will take?
God: No. I can only observe. I never even knew that human beings would come into existence, let alone their fate. So what I set into motion was a domino effect, a chain of events if you will, culminating into the state of Earth as it is today.
Apprentice: So, you don’t have a bearing on what happens everyday?
God: No. But in a way, I’m the biggest causal effect that the universe ever had. So, a major reason of what is happening today is me. But that is because I triggered the genesis of it all.
Apprentice: So are human beings fools to be praying to you, preaching your name?
God: The design of the universe facilitated the emergence of a dominant organism. I never thought it’d be those monkeys, but look where they stand now.Yet, the more profound realities of this universe remain quite unknown to them.They are only at a nascent stage of self-realization.It will take time for them to truly understand what my and their existence means.So if they do not self-destruct, they are in the right path to do so.
So, they shall struggle to know what I truly am, they mistake me for their caretaker and ultimate savior, but time will come when they realize that I’m just a creator, a being, who didn’t even expect their existence a few billion years ago. But ultimately, they should get there, ultimately they shall realize that I’m as perplexed, as normal and as ‘humane’ as they are. Only stronger.
Apprentice: Hmm, food for thought…
God: Enough for today, let’s get t work. This universe won’t make itself.
