Agreed...and I believe it's based on the chakras/colors of the prism. For instance, "good hearted" = pronounced heart chakra, which corresponds with "greens, veggies, healthy, etc". Green HUE-mans.
lol, but what would happen after that? You said it might be a reason we are all here, so why kill that, which sustains us?

That's a very interesting take on it. I say, why not? The god of this place could be a giant mind sucking parasite feeding off human energy for it's food source. It might be the reason everyone's still here. Now how to kill it. Any suggestions?

Hah. Look at what I found while reading up on the Gospel of Thomas. (highly recommended)
So, here is the question.. How do we avoid becoming 'a corpse'?
Jesus said, "This heaven will pass away, and the one above it will pass away. The dead are not alive, and the living will not die. In the days when you consumed what is dead, you made it what is alive. When you come to dwell in the light, what will you do? On the day when you were one you became two. But when you become two, what will you do?" -- The Gospel of Thomas #11
(1) And he said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not taste death."
Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. -- KJV, Ecclesiastes 12:7
They showed Jesus a gold coin and said to him, "Caesar's men demand taxes from us." He said to them, "Give Caesar what belongs to Caesar, give God what belongs to God, and give me what is mine." -- The Gospel of Thomas #100
The Theocrats are violating natural laws when they refuse to reincarnate.
The souls of all living beings are constructed to incarnate and draw energy from the physical body. This is the only natural and efficient way in which the soul can get the vital energy it needs to function and regenerate itself. Although the mechanics of this process are quite complicated, we will explain them in some detail to allow you to understand the rest of the theory.
The Theocrats are spirits with great knowledge and psychic power. They are a sort of ruling class on the astral plane, and they don't want to give up their power and privilege by reincarnating. Highly advanced souls who aren't Theocrats reincarnate and take the chance that their soul can properly educate their new mind, and that their next reincarnation will be a pleasant and valuable one.
The nourishment that disembodied spirits receive from living people as radiant psychic energy is not enough to sustain them by itself. This is why all non-Theocratic spirits reincarnate within ten to fifty years after physical death: if they don't, the astral soul starts to degenerate because of a sort of malnutrition.
The astral matter that makes up its tissues can't regenerate itself properly and reverse the effects of entropy. So the choice is reincarnation or illness, insanity, and death.
The Theocrats have found an alternative to this, but it is an evil one: cannibalism. They use their telepathic powers to hypnotize spirits less highly developed than they are; then they attach the silver cord to them just as if the other astral soul were the somatic soul of an infant.
They can draw out enough energy this way to sustain themselves on the astral plane indefinitely, but the process destroys the other spirit.

Now that would be a great script for a horror film. I'd love it if you would elaborate a bit more. Could you share some specific observations that support the idea? It's really interesting to be sure.
The guy who proposed the 'parasite' idea, also teaches that chakras are control-mechanisms installed in the body, and that there is no use whatsoever in relying upon them. I won't share who he is, for I don't want to advertise him either positively or negatively. I'll respect his personal space and also to some extent, his intellectual property.
Deva (/ˈdeɪvə/; Sanskrit: देव, Devá) means "heavenly, divine, anything of excellence", and is also one of the terms for a deity in Hinduism. Deva is masculine, and the related feminine equivalent is devi (pronounced Devee).
In the earliest Vedic literature, all supernatural beings are called Asuras. The concepts and legends evolve in ancient Indian literature, and by the late Vedic period, benevolent supernatural beings are referred to as Deva-Asuras. In post-Vedic texts, such as the Puranas and the Itihasas of Hinduism, the Devas represent the good, and the Asuras the bad. In some medieval Indian literature, Devas are also referred to as Suras and contrasted with their equally powerful but malevolent half-brothers, referred to as the Asuras.
Devas along with Asuras, Yakshas(nature spirits) and Rakshasas (ghosts, ogres) are part of Indian mythology, and Devas feature in one of many cosmological theories in Hinduism.
Dashavatara (Sanskrit: दशावतार, daśāvatāra) refers to the ten primary avatars of Vishnu, the Hindu god of preservation. Vishnu is said to descend in form of an avatar to restore cosmic order. The word Dashavatara derives from daśa, meaning 'ten', and avatar (avatāra), roughly equivalent to 'incarnation'.
The list of included avatars varies across sects and regions, and no list can be uncontroversially presented as standard. However, most draw from the following set of figures, omitting at least one of those listed in parentheses: Matsya, Kurma, Varaha, Narasimha, Vamana, Parashurama, Rama, Krishna, (Balarama) or (Buddha) and Kalki. In traditions that omit Krishna, he often replaces Vishnu as the source of all avatars. Some traditions include a regional deity such as Vithoba or Jagannath in penultimate position, replacing Krishna or Buddha.
The order of the ancient concept of Dashavataras has been interpreted to be reflective of modern Darwinian evolution.
For the majority of Christiandenominations, the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost is the third person (hypostasis) of the Trinity: the Triune God manifested as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; each person itself being God.
Some Christian theologians identify the Holy Spirit with the Ruach Hakodesh(Holy Breath) in Jewish scripture, and with many similar names including: the Ruach Elohim (Spirit of God), Ruach YHWH (Spirit of Yahweh), Ruach Hakmah (Spirit of Wisdom); In the New Testament it is identified, among others, with the Spirit of Christ, the Spirit of Truth, the Paraclete and the Holy Spirit.
The New Testament details a close relationship between the Holy Spirit and Jesus during his earthly life and ministry. The Gospels of Matthewand Luke and the Nicene Creed state that Jesus was "conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary". The Holy Spirit descended on Jesus like a dove during his baptism, and in his Farewell Discourse after the Last SupperJesus promised to send the Holy Spirit to his disciples after his departure.
Maitreya (Sanskrit), Metteyya (Pali), is regarded as a future Buddha of this world in Buddhist eschatology. In some Buddhist literature, such as the Amitabha Sutra and the Lotus Sutra, he is referred to as Ajita.
According to Buddhist tradition, Maitreya is a bodhisattva who will appear on Earth in the future, achieve complete enlightenment, and teach the pure dharma. According to scriptures, Maitreya will be a successor to the present Buddha, Gautama Buddha (also known as Śākyamuni Buddha). The prophecy of the arrival of Maitreya refers to a time in the future when the dharma will have been forgotten by most on the terrestrial world.
