so i wonder about that. to seemingly over complicate things for level of story telling, depending on what you want.
this was supposed to be differnt but if feel there is a kind of thought and creative blockage that is like a one legged animal dying in a trap.
those magical-thinking beliefs, and trying to sound smart with philosophy , and what ever aspects of sin/redemption/punismment/reward and how the supernatural and metaphysical world might not make to much sense, and things on a grander universal scale, that would result in needing to have heaven;y politics, or perhaps what can go wrong with super powerd beings who can write the laws of the universe.
or just trying to write the stories and cram bits of every(other) culture in there. I don't think that works, just like the other things that work.
. i'm not sure if it's offensive to say "you know those CAFOs and shit? yeah well, there is like this god like being, and hell is kind of out of commission. so now awful people are reborn as CAFO animals and bullfight bulls...
but I don't know. can't function.
