“It is one that I constructed to fit what I needed at the time” (Johnny)
God is a construct of our mind…which part exactly? Our imagination? Our fears? Our hopes? Our goals? Our secrets? Our inner self? Our ego? Our sub-conscious?
This is a tricky but interesting topic since how can one pin-point if God was the construct of their mind or some other collective thoughts (nature vs nurture)?
You mention organized religion for example, which is a collective bunch of data on God reinforced by the group. Is this the version of God that was problematic or just the idea of God in general? Did God need to become a myth because of the environment God was learned in or just because this is the case?
