Are we what God Eats? Are we food for the Divine?

What if this universe had a creator/author intelligence? What if this being we refer to as God were in the business of creating realities and populating them with advanced intelligences such as ourselves? Living souls separate from him but with an in borne desire to seek out our creator/author? What if this is all a farming project? What if we and other beings like us are not just created by God but later consumed like tasty morsels that feed this being forever. What if our cooperation in this feeding strategy was required to be voluntary in order for the feeding cycle to work? What if our free will was required for us to volunteer as food/believers for God to consume?

You know in the vampire movies how the person must give themselves freely to be fed upon? What if these are creatures who model their food system after that of the universe creator? I ponder these question because humans seem to have idealistic ideas of God as a wrath God but also a God of love. [carrot and stick?] I do not seek the answer to these imponderable questions in this thread on this site but wonder of these concepts and thought on the topic might want be explored by some members that might have posed these questions in their own minds.

To further this postulate I would like to add the to me obvious include. That being the farming analogies used throughout the biblical references. For instance separating the wheat from the chaff and burning the chaff. This prepares the field for another crop as most of us know. Then there is the farming analogy of the Shepard and his sheep, where humans are the sheep and the good lord is the Shepard. It might escape some but I doubt all miss the fact that sheep are sheared, milked, and eaten by the Shepard routinely. What if these analogies are not just a coincidence but a clue as to the ultimate use of the faithful by their creator/farmer.

Yes God loves us - with salt and pepper. Most religions seem to have their roots back into pagan times when human sacrifice was popular so anything is possible. Who knows for what purpose some religious practices were created? What about communion "this is the blood of Christ" or something like that. It is sobering to think about how some rituals might have originated eons ago.

It seems human sacrifice does hold a place in many religions. In the suicide bomber sacrificing or being sacrificed, to the Son of God being a human sacrifice for the atonement of the sins of humankind. In the end if God sacrificed himself so that humans would once again taste good to the divine did the Christ serve as seasoning to make humankind more palatable to God?

Have a look at the size of the known universe, and our tiny place in it.

God would starve.

Space is a near empty vacuum from our perception and what little is here seems to pulse in and out of existence when we look at up close. What if the most valuable substance in the universe is the collective awareness of the intelligences that observe that universe? Look to the observer principle in quantum mechanics. Perhaps the tastiest most concentrated food substance for universe creators is large collections of obedient willing consciousness seeking to be consumed by their creator/farmer. Space and time from the perspective of the entity that created it all would not be like ours that is clear.

He eats us because he wants to, being immortal Cthulhu doesn't require a diet of humans, he just enjoys the taste of longpork.

Lets use the analogy of Saffron cultivation. Is it worth it? It only grows in very specific climates and soils. (Habitable Zones) It must be grown over large spaces (many habitable worlds). Each plant grows only 4 flowers. (only a few habitable worlds grow intelligent life). Is it worth it to the farmer considering the entire farm is grown from his mental energy alone? Of course it is. Mmm Mmm Saffron/souls. Tasty.

OK,

what is this god actually eating.

when and how does the consuming of humans take place.

what is this god that requires humans to exist?

I imagine that a being who created the universe would have prodigious energy requirements

Perhaps God consumes all matter that falls into black holes everywhere. At least it would be more substantial food than us.

Imagine a crop of barley. It was planted there by the farmer. This farmer built the universe (field) sews this barley in this field. (humans) They grow and when they are ready the farmer comes back and brings in the crop. The farmer has a scythe (death) that brings in the crop. Scale like in your last post seems to me irreverent given that the creator/farmer made the field/universe. The highest value substance in this reality is devotion/belief. It is the glue and binding principle it seems. Thus it has a high value to the author/creator/farmer of this reality.

In my analogy the willing consciousness can surrender to the divine (black hole) and make a choice to fall into the black hole. All base matter that falls into the black hole is dead matter having no choice. Living conscious energy having the power of choice has a higher energy/tastes better more fulfilling to the host.

Well, I would guess that the energy we possess could fuel god. We are all part of this shared energy of the universe.

As far as god actually consuming us physically, I doubt if it would ever happen. There could be more than one being competing for our life force as fuel too if this is true.

Maybe that is why they put all those chemicals in our food.....spices.

Yes but in reality, a black hole is a very specific thing, as is consciousness.

To my knowledge, consciousness has never been near a black hole and is not likely to be within millions of miles of one... ever.

Farming experiences in the sense of seeing through our eyes maybe, or perhaps bringing into reality each and every possible unique outcome. But eating our souls so to speak? I'm not sure. Recombining with one source that split apart, right? Like in certain Judaism the "sparks of YHWH" in each and every living thing, which gives it animation and life, right? Maybe .. but you painted it in a slightly negative perspective. If my soul recombining with whatever "God" is happens to be the truth, I'm all for it. It's better than being nothing but flesh and bones, dying, and then being gone for eternity.

To your knowledge, seriously? We are discussing universe creating scale phenomena and energy cycles. Your perception is a bit limited in regards to the scale of events / actions being discussed in this thread I think. I am not trying to insult here but I would hope to keep the scale of the discussion within relevant parameters.

Consciousness is everywhere present in the universe I expect. Our awareness of the totality of this awareness is of course limited but I expect the author/farmer/creator shares no such restrictions with us.

Thanks for your contribution to the thread. You bring out one of the primary requirements for the feeding cycle I am postulating here. Cooperative/submissive surrendering seems to be required to complete the food cycle. If there is no obedience shown by the food it does not taste right to the divine. If you do not want to willingly spend eternity worshiping (being digested) by the divine you are not palatable. You would be spat out of his mouth as it were.

Scale is precisely what I reply posted about.

Due to issues of scale and distance, your OP is not rational.

... and additionally, do you have knowledge that is not to your knowledge, that you can call upon to answer a post? Ehh? I would think it entirely reasonable to say "to my knowledge" when replying to something based upon that knowledge (since I can't use yours, or anyone elses).
