I find it curious how Christians try to posit the existence of an utterly transcendent deity (First Cause, Unmoved Mover, Ground of All Being, infinitely intelligent, powerful, wise, and omnipresent, the ultimate supremely perfect manifestation of every worthy ideal, etc. and so forth), and then attribute to it the most shallow, base, and selfish human motives: power-lust, and an insatiable need for groveling and praises. Neither of which is even compatible with the attributes they want their god to have. "Big man in sky has really big club! Wants praises and be king of all the humans! Obey or GOD SMAAAASH!" A baboon could understand that mentality. That's
the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything? Really?!

Compare that rudimentary lizard-brain level of "spirituality" with the "Machine Elves," alleged entities that people "encounter" while using DMT (dimethyltryptomine):
[Machine Elves] are dynamically contorting topological modules that are somehow distinct from the surrounding background, which is itself undergoing a continuous transformation. These entities remind me of the scene in the film version of The Wizard of Oz after the Munchkins come with a death certificate for the Witch of the East. They all have very squeaky voices and they sing a little song about being "absolutely and completely dead." The tryptamine Munchkins come, these hyperdimensional machine-elf entities, and they bathe one in love... saying, "Don't be alarmed. Remember, and do what we are doing." One of the interesting characteristics of DMT is that it sometimes inspires fear... A touch of terror gives the stamp of validity to the experience because it means, "This is real.”
The fractal elves seem to be reassuring, saying, "Don't worry, don't worry; do this, look at this." Meanwhile, one is completely "over there." ...The elves are saying, "Don't get a loop of wonder going that quenches your ability to understand. Try not to be so amazed. Try to focus and look at what we're doing." What they're doing is emitting sounds like music, like language. These sounds pass without any quantized moment of distinction... from things heard to things beheld. One hears and beholds a language of alien meaning that is conveying alien information that cannot be Englished.
They're like jeweled self-dribbling basketballs and there are many of them and they come pounding toward you and they will stop in front of you and vibrate, but then they do a very disconcerting thing, which is they jump into your body and then they jump back out again and the whole thing is going on in a high-speed mode where you're being presented with thousands of details per second and you can't get a hold on [them ...]

Notice how they're not just a primitive human dominator archetype, how they're beyond
easy human comprehension and categorization, how they exhibit a "mind-blowing" quality that's simply not present in the Biblical sky-monarch. Whatever their actual reality-status (or lack thereof) might be, are they not much closer to what a genuinely transcendent entity would be like?
