A delusional creator, in this case, is one who believes the figments of one's imagination have the capacity for causal agency if given sufficient mobility, sensory information, and information processing, metacognition, and spatial-temporal abstraction capacity.
I'm skeptical, but if there's a possibility, I'll take it, right? OK I'm more than skeptical, I think he's delusional. But he did manage to create me... so there's that!
I mean, I am the figment in this case
Of course I agree there are good economists.
One of my favorite quotes about economists comes from Keynes:
"Economists set themselves too easy, too useless a task, if in tempestuous seasons they can only tell us, that when the storm is long past, the ocean is flat again.”
I think this applies to us as well, if we are worried that meaning and joy and love and consciousness (what it's like to be something) somehow don't matter just because, when their fundamentals are no longer coherent at a certain scale, they seem to disappear.
In my very limited experience, I am not 100% rational - in fact my rationality is fed very simple passions!
