Sorry I missed this!
I don't really look at the forum anymore .... well I do but not to the extent that I did when I was a mod, so I missed reading this or replying to it anyway!
It is a "LARGE" question isn't it!
How did GOD become????
So this is only my consideration, taken from this 'life' of mine .... and NO I cannot prove any of it <<<< You would have to BE ME and live MY current life in a future 'life' of yours .... which I wouldn't recommend (2 out of 5 .... pretty colours, although limited, nice plants and animals but base nature really satanic and let me tell you >>>> very bad management .... would not visit again .... try a different reality)
So short form .... GOD came from potential.
Capable of being but not yet in existence; latent or undeveloped.
There was nothing .... or more correctly .... No Thing.
There was only potential.
There wasn't even Aether.
Just potential for ALL things.
The way that I consider it is like an ocean but with no surface or bottom .... there was no up nor down .... no left or right .... nothing.
But in that potential was the 'potential' for a 1st self awareness .... an individual mind!
That 'mind' saw all the potential and ordered it by placing it into chaos .... there is underlying order in chaos .... It put it into "broken lines" and from those lines TIME became.
That 1st self awareness is not a GOD and would not ever wish to be such a thing .... YOU have self awareness .... Are YOU a GOD?
Or are you just exploring potential the same way that the first of us did?
Edit to add:
Sorry forgot that many will thus ask .... " Well then where did 'potential' come from?"
Little bit of a silly question if they think about it!
