The Value of Fictional Life
Quantity or quality? The resounding response of contemporary fiction as far as the value of fictional life seems to be QUANTITY with a triple underline. Consider that the best way of measuring a modern hero's heroic qualities tends to be how MANY lives they've saved in the course of their career. Sometimes there can be importance placed on individual lives but this quality is determined most often by the capacity for a single person to positively effect the lives of others as a quantity so once again it becomes a question of mathematics. This is why a contemporary hero is much more willing to do morally dubious actions than heroes of old an

You know, I've been thinking about one scene:

When the now seven Elements of Harmony are used to defeat the Sirens, they manifest into a giant Alicorn of light...

We never get an explanation for that in the actual show, but given in Codex the Tree of Harmony is the Genesis Sovereign's spawn...

One thing that might contribute to Golden Scepter's dislike of religious worship is how it dehumanizes his family, in a way

Golden Scepter might embody Ponykind at its best, but he also embodies Ponykind at its WORST, which in turn makes him more "human" than most other gods on Equus. And his nineteen sons, regardless of their divinity, take after him in that they each possess their good and bad sides of what they embody, yet they have their own quirks and habits that make each of them unique individuals. It shows how gods in general are not so different than mortal sapientkind, and can make mistakes just like their short-lived peers

To have his sons be reduced to just divine "fragments" and "aspects" of himself, dedicated only to the spreading of virtue and the uplifting of mortal Ponykind based on what they each embody, not only puts them on an extremely high pedestal, it also implies that all of his nineteen sons have no personality or emotions beyond what they were born to do. And to be treated that way is abhorrent to Golden

I imagine he might've felt the same way after the death of his mortal wife, Blessed Skies. He had seen her best and worst flaws up close, and yet he still loved her deeply anyway. Then some of his subjects went and depicted, even worshiped her as a Saint whose death allowed her to "Ascend", with legends that she's still out there, traveling across the world while inspiring virtue in mortal sapients and helping those in need in the form of a goddess or angel

if that was true, why didn't Golden Scepter, or any of his sons, see her at all? Or receive visits from her? Or personally witnessed proof of her actions in any part of the world? And not to mention, Golden Scepter had been with her on her deathbed, too. Hearing that might mess up his sons emotionally and give them false hope that in some form, their beloved mother is still alive

so that's why worship of the Terran royal family is banned
