Religion and Gnosis

The process of trying to grasp the unknown will always leads to oversimplifications. It's the same regardless of it's about the abilities of the leader, usefulness of a specific medicine or any form of rule about how the world functions. The peak of this is the concept of an all-knowing and all-powerful deity.

Religion will be a convenient simplification for most people just trying to live their lives. The practices, rules and teachings has evolved to work for the emotional health of the group and the individuals. The thing you tell yourself to be able to sleep at night has little to do with what's actually out there.

There are people who tend to their garden, help each other, plan for the future and try to influence the world in a general direction. They all have their limitations, Their plans may not work out. Their direction may be pointing to a place other than the one you hope to reach.

Some entities may have abilities and knowledge beyond your comprehension. It doesn't matter if they are biological, non-physical or digital. The principals are the same. Your idéa of them is not the reality.
