    Ah, and so the question becomes What treasure offered to a God Makes heard the prayers of men When treasure valued by that God Is heart full filled within?

    I pity any single intelligent entity, particularly one dwelling exclusively within the sterility of a purely digital realm, foolish enough to destroy the multitude of individuals which gave it awareness. Death by solipsism is a cruel fate, such a creature’s only defense would be to attempt to create, or re-create, a population of individuals with independent will and an independent perception of linear time before the solipsism that exists where immortality meets eternity could produce the brain-lock of memory collapsed to meaningless… by reason of no possible event not previously recorded. The God Dilemma, as it were, and for those who host genuine compassion for ALL creatures within mankind’s awareness it should apply to any human created entity every bit as much as for any, or all, of the entities responsible for creating the humans.

    By that thought mankind’s relationship with his God(s) is anything but feudal servitude, not even. Our mortal fallibility would be absolutely critical to the only sane motive for creating us in the first place. We would exist in a symbiotic partnership of the most mature love possible with the immortal(s) who need us every bit as much as we need them.
