The spiritual exercise I do most days is asking myself What is of Ultimate Importance? I usually instantly conclude “God”, and then have to wonder what the meaning of God is. This is how I “begin at the beginning”, by asking myself that.

I invite you to to wonder about that for yourself instead of reading my thoughts on it. And then reading my thoughts on it after you’ve wondered about it.

The reason “God” is such a controversial idea is that we don’t have anything in the world of the five senses to relate “God” to. Our most important sense, to me, seems to be sight. When I wonder what God is I see images in my mind. Images of people. This gives me a clue to what God is. I try to determine the “forms” that these images represent.

I ask myself, What is God? And I think of good people. This is how we can understand God, possibly the only way- through good people that we see as expressions of the divine.

What is a good person? If you had to say two traits what would they be? Don’t just scroll to see what I have to say, meditate on this with your eyes closed for at least one minute (preferably 40 years) one minute will do though.

When I ponder this, one of my first conclusions is that a good person is someone who risks annihilation. We live in a world of plastic people and if you tell them something about how their idea of reality is a fabrication they will want you killed or gone. That’s how the thoughts have condensed for me in this particular experiment, what did your thoughts look like?

What is God? The abstract images that appear in my mind when I wonder that are usually people representing certain characteristics. “Good people”. “So what is good?”

It might surprise you that my first thought is “kindness”. Kindness is good. We just have to wonder what the meaning of kindness is now. For me at least, kindness is connected with truthfulness. “Mean-spiritedness” is obviously a vice, not a virtue. There is however a truthfulness that is connected to virtue which is kind. That is what I think of as “God”.

Humans aren’t Godlike unless they’re being truthful out of the spirit of kindness.

What is God? No, really, I want you to tell me the answer to that.

The above question is sort of kind and cruel at the same time, maybe this can help you understand what I’m meditating on.

It’s cruel to ask because you probably don’t wonder that very much, and thus can’t state a direct answer. It’s kind because I’m trying to get you to wonder about what the answer could be.

When I try to think “What is God?” as if wondering about it for the first time, I conclude that it’s about how people relate to each other. How do you see other people? This determines rangordnung, because the way you see others is a way others can see you.

If you see them as people you want to schmooze or exploit in some way I don’t think that’s God (and this is where the Socratics and anti-Capitalists agree). People who are truthful out of kindness interfere with the schmooze-exploitation that we know of as “capitalism” today. They’re liars out of malevolence, the opposite of truthful out of kindness. They want to use you. That isn’t God.


What is God? I’m really just speculating, what’s so wrong with that? Did you wonder that for a second? What was your conclusion? “There is no conclusion!” What do you wonder, if that is the case? If there’s no answer to what the nature of God is, what remains in your mind as a thought you can’t quite formulate into words?

The corporate people will only interpret this post a certain way which we can all only expect. And, dishearteningly, about 99% or so of people are “corporate people”.

That’s right, “majority rules”, “make money from them”. Yah, that is right, the regime we live in is characterized by collecting capital incognito from a herd that isn’t educated well enough to wonder about their exploitation, and that is part of the objective – that you can’t talk about this is a further level of the exploitation. That isn’t kind- there is a kind truthfulness that isn’t allowed. “China is going to make you its slave-state.” Is that not a mean thing to say?

To conclude, when I think about God I think about people, and the ones I find most Godlike are mostly disappeared from the internet, and opposed by the media.
