I considered myself for an atheist for a long time and i did not ever believed in god, and i still do. but i amuse myself by creating theories about everything.
What if we were all creators. What if our spirit is our innerself and our flesh bodies puppets. ( I am going to call the spirits IS-BE since you are The beeing )
Beeing an IS BE gives you plently of advantages. You know about everything in your own univers, the rules applyed to his physics, the species created everywhere. You know absolutly evrything, the end of every calculations, the end of any games, the name of whatever is beeing.
Beeing an IS BE is getting borring, so an IS BE creates. Creat his own unnivers with his own rules, creat his own species, his own formula and start to experiment.
But an IS BE cannot experiment cause he knows. So an IS BE has to forget about himself, forget about his knowlegde, forget about his feelings, about everything he wants then experiment a body. An animal, a cell, an intelligent life form.
An IS BE in experimenting a body created with certain rules start to learn from nothing then dies and get back in his spirit form.
An IS BE will create needs in bodies so they can't be bored. Life is a game of experimentation for them. Once they get back as IS BE they can do it again as they please or create different rules for theyr own amusement.
What if we, humans are jsut all IS-BE experimenting our own creations, rules to our physics, creations of our own true form. What if all of this is just a game.
