I'm going to propose a new term, theonid, to refer to a family of god-like beings that fall short of the theoretical God that is supposed to be perfect and omni-everything.
I'm really dubious about the existence of an omni-everything, perfect God because of the contradictions and paradoxes inherent in such a being.
However, I'm more willing to entertain the possibility of theonids--creatures with abiliites we would traditionally describe as godlike, but without most of the characteristics possessed by THE (alleged) God. I am thinking that we might even be parts of some theonid, just like cells are parts of our body. And just as the activity of our brain cells generates consciousness, our activities (and the activities of other parts of the universe) generate the minds of theonids. And, just as the brain's thoughts have effects on our body, the cogitation of theonids has effects on us. What, exactly, I haven't a clue. I'm not sure that this theonid hypothesis is going to go anywhere . . .
