    98. God as Symbol

    "God is a symbol and reality as one." He, she or it cannot be used as metaphor because that which is metaphorical in God has been made identical to its supposed presence in real life. We can now see the complexity of confusing spirituality through the mention of God; if the term is not already understood, it immediately becomes a black hole in meaning because it is a single value shared between name and meaning to which anything can be assigned. Those who are genius seem to inherently treat God as a holistic concept that may or may not "exist," but is rendered by belief.

    For two thousand years, Jesus has revenged himself on us for not having died on a sofa (Cioran. All Gall Is Divided 98).
