"Gold gets dug out of the ground in Africa, or someplace. Then we melt it down, dig another hole, bury it again and pay people to stand around guarding it. It has no utility. Anyone watching from Mars would be scratching their head."
- Warren Buffett
"You don't need to try to be God, you are! But if you try to be God it means you don't know you are..." - Alan Watts
False dichotomy.The failure of Jesus Christ syndrome is in realizing that allowing yourself to come to physical harm and letting other people see it causes them to suffer. It is a fundamental lack of human awareness in the empathy of other people.
You can be fully aware of what your acts will do to bepople, and be fully emphatic to their feelings regarding same -- and still choose to undertake that act.
If anyone should approach this same question, here is the conclusion I have reached for myself:
I do not need to be seen by other people as God to solve the problem I have chosen to solve, and will not allow any parent to use what I will do for humanity as justification for repeating what my parents have done to me. I am the end for which the means must be erased. I will complete that end without validating the means of my creation.
What is the process that one has to use to become a God?
You have me curious.
