Next: Consciousness is finite Up: Overview Previous: Connecting meaning to structure Contents
We choose to call this creatively evolving consciousness God. We are the eyes of God with the power to create the world through our ability to understand and change biological evolution and our developing capacity to create artificial intelligence.
Evolution has become conscious of itself and is acquiring an understanding of its own structure. This is a dangerous but inevitable situation. We are encroaching on the power of God. But God is not an other worldly being. She is the creative process of evolving consciousness. We are the highest level of God's consciousness on this planet. We are not so much encroaching on God as we are God becoming conscious of her work and starting to consciously direct that work.
