Humanity’s relationship with its interior “god”.
This argument does not presuppose or support the view that God does not or cannot exist. Instead, it speaks to the individual’s personal relationship with his or her interior “god” (as explained), whether or not they believe in the “formal” God—and completely independent of the question of His existence.
- What is most desired by humanity is what it cannot have, what it can only begin to articulate. In many cultures, this phenomenon is often described as, or with, “god”. When god becomes attainable it will mark the end of man.
- In this scenario, god cannot be obtained through perceived or spiritual attainment – he must be either caught or made. The death of humanity requires that god be transformed into something that can be actively called upon or used.
- This is the real collective “death wish” of society. We do not merely wish to die, or even desire that in passing. We wish to obtain god, something impossible to do except in extreme moments of selfless worship, through transcendental exercises (even activities, such as art) and through gruelling or particularly dangerous experiences— and never to use as a “tool”, independent of the specific activity.
