For a theory to have validity an imaginative idea must be predicated on a rigorous basis of understanding in actual fact. Otherwise what one creates is more fantasy story than a credible alternative idea to be investigated.
Your so called theory has been explored by probably a dozen science fiction authors and new-age spiritualism gurus of the recent present past, a hodgepodge of items from a range of subjects, confusing the eminent Swiss psychiatrist and founder of the analytical school of psychology Mr Carl Jung's, Collective Unconscious, with some fantastical and computer-game inspired sea of minds horror story, including some of the vengefully wrong ideas by the misguided British author Mr Richard Dawkins, in his book with “Delusion” in the title. You further add, into this sad affair for a thread at this somewhat interesting place -- a misinterpreted basis of understanding in Protestantism.
Now, since you pose the question concerning the origin of G_D it is only correct for me to try and answer it, or in the least show how wrong you are in your theory:
Man has not been around for eternity as we have evolved from apes, and since G_D is eternal your theory falls apart by default. You see, if the mind is G_D and we as humans are all what you claim than we must have been around for eternity. And since there is no evidence of this whatsoever, and a mountain of evidence against it being the case does exist, in fact -- your theory stacks up to nothing more than a deck of cards, and ones which are not even that interesting, nor difficult to bring down, I must admit.
Instead of trying to discover the mind of G_D you might have prudently instead asked yourself the more important question concerning who might have created the Creator. This would have at least led you to perhaps a more inspired process of discovery and a much more robust theory. However, it seems you have presented a theory which is not only unimaginative, but which presents you as a failed theorist of a very basic order and rank.
I would normally not give you and this thread you authored a thought in passing, however since learning you have children and were discussing religion with them, I thought it only proper that you should inform them that in the highest level of debate concerning the existence of G_D -- that it is in fact the Northern Irish Professor of Mathematics, the mighty Mr John Lennox, who is way ahead of the lightweight Mr Richard Dawkins, in his real and actual EVIDENCE that G_D is real.
Toward conclusion; what you have “theorised” is worthy of nothing more than being used as a story in a B-grade movie from someplace other than Hollywood.
You theory has no merits, and is based on, no evidence which would withstand even the most basic scrutiny; no evidence whatsoever, in fact. Much better that you turn yourself and your children to an established mainstream religion from the monotheistic tradition, if you haven't chosen a religion to follow as yet. It's not proper that I offer my suggestion since you have not asked for it.
Then again, you might think catholicism might get in the way of your next earth shattering “theory”. But I hardly doubt it, for beginning from such inept “theorising” beginnings you have hardly even started out on your way. Make sure you don't get too lost out there, I suspect it may be difficult for you to find your way home, again.
Seeking Truth is a good and worthy thing, so far though, the road you have covered is one which is not even a road but a mere trampled path radiating from untruth and leading to untruth.
Finally, I really only wish peace for you and your loved ones.
Peace be with you,
