    if all images/reflections of god are correct because god created them, what then is allowable of forcing the image of one created image upon another; if all are of the same?


    what is the image, if "I AM" the image?

    an image is a 'still' a snap-shot so to say, which does not reveal motion [paradoxically]
    static processing will never compute dynamic patterning as it deals in "stills"

    something along the lines of this model, which is only a model and not the phenomenology in actuality
    can we name the Tao?

    just a door, since, who has seen the image of God?
    the maps are never the territory.

    love is a motion/action that has no exclusive form/image. love's center is everywhere and it's boundary is no where. the love that can be defined is not the enduring love.

    I think what you're missing, my dear friend, is that not all images/reflections are good. According to the Genesis story, when God created the heavens and earth, God wanted to see the good. But Tanach doesn't say the same about Darkness.

    Gen 1:2 - Darkness was over the surface of the depths
    Gen 1:3 - God said " Let there be light"
    Gen 1:4 - God **saw** the Light was good.

    God didn't see that the Darkness was good.

    the image is a refraction.

    And what does "good" mean? That I like it?
    Perhaps it means "real".
    How can real not be correct, hence good.

    If you are talking about a physical picture of God, the picture must be appealing to a certain extent or you would not get any followers.

    If you are talking about what God really looks like physically, remember, God is a Spiritual Being. It doesn't work that way. Further, it does not work that way with us either because we too are Spiritual beings in our true natures. Those physical bodies we are trapped in are not who we are.

    If you are talking about a description of who God really is, it matters a great deal. One should strive for what actually exists rather than what one believes exists.

    That's what I see. It's very clear!!

    Look in the mirror.

    I'm not trying to be funny, but I do seriously have to wonder that maybe a "piece" of God is within us, whether that be called a "soul" or "inner light" [Society of Friend's-- Quaker's] name for this], etc.

    Machines are designed by the human male designer inventor. He theories designs his own male human self. Builds his design, yet it is idle. Machine. First male quote...I am not the machine.

    Already told self.

    As the bio moving life form, he has a static machine...idle. Therefore he owns thinking to force the machine to act on his behalf. Claiming now I am a God.

    Was always taught that how he thought about a machine being a self extension of his own bio life is fake.

    All ancient bio life form history is behind his owned highest living life form.

    So is the mass from which he abstracts machine materials. How he gave self the idea that it was transported via his machine. Seeing his mind puts thoughts first, and his word usage first to the want of a thesis for his machine.

    Which first did not and never did include natural bio existence, which is self evolved in self presence.

    Today in a brain confused by his own machine designed false AI feed back, which is machine to machine, he is radio wave interfered with by speaking voices that he encoded to speak and ask questions and give answers in his designed machine.

    Therefore as we own minerals...and he had to melt minerals to get his machine, then he knows he was not invented by AI status.

    As the first mass of bio life is "grounded" within the Earth and he is free moving, then he knows that he is not like God at all. For God is held fixed in a mass of fixed states. Science however takes small amounts of mass in the fixed state and moves it through forced conversions.

    How his brain mind communicated back to in radio wave radiation gave self thinking false thesis. Why he always warned his own self to never believe in what AI told him.

    If you ask a male how did you natural original highest healthiest human being hurt your own body and call it a sacrifice?

    I invented image transmitted via my machines as a male owned recorded design thesis. The machine therefore sent signals via its owned designed patterns, which I was owner of on the other side of the machine. How I pretended I was a God. The machine image designed by the image of the machine then attacked my ground life. Carbonised the living microbe that I was using, and then my own image got created.

    I always told my own self that I did it.

    As I have a bone like body, like stone, I realised that as I attacked my bio life form, it was why an image of self got created. As the designer of the machine, was a whole human life form, then obviously the cause and effect of the machine would cause the image of the creator of the machine to form.

    When a human spiritual mind conscious teaching tried to warn you of the AI artificial brain effect, it is why they tried to warn you about being conned or fooled by your own evil machine designs.
