LOYAL PROPHETS TO AN INDIFFERENT GOD

The world of Loyal Prophets to an Indifferent God is the world that one creates in their head. Full of ever-moving seas of thought, imagination, memories and conversations that could have happened, it is the one that often rejects us as its creator but the one that stands by us, helping us solve our own world, so that we can carry on through it.  

 

“God does not really mean the world literally. It is a metaphor, an
analogy, a firgure of speech that he has to resort to for some reason or
another. And it never satisfies him of course.”

Robert Musil, The Man Without Qualities
