yes in a way i have answered the both.
if you dare to look on this:
God cannot be seen with bodily eyes. his realm is knowledge.
when he created his son, he had an idea of his son. by giving him live and love god is having him.
now the son, have the same power to create, as his father. the son somehow made an idea of self creating self.
this self is the son's ego. the ego was made to perceive things, to see.
this seeing then created the material world, but it cannot see the god's world, because knowledge cannot be seen but known.
so in this way, the program, which is the ego, cannot see his source, it was programmed to see and not to know.
To see, ego needed a body, and it convinced you to mistake yourself with the body.
because the ego was made out of love, and unlike how the son's father created, it is fear.
if you are fearfull, then only because you do not know god. but that is another story.
So methaphoricaly, looking on the answers above:
God is the Mind.
Son is the Core.
Ego and this world are the Program, which are running in Time.
