Take another perspective then...Deepak Chopra puts forward the idea of "God" as the universe's consciousness, or intelligence. A bundle of karma, memory and desire (love), which wants to use the same contexts, meanings and relationships, to create a new experience in a new physical domain or body.
A sort of, Love does what love does best, ... It creates.
He goes even further....
"A human body has 100 trillion cells and each cell does 100,000 things every second. How does a human body think thoughts, play a piano, kill germs, remove toxicants, and make a baby all at once?
You can't explain that through energy or information signals.
The only way to explain it is through conciousness.
And the more you study it, the more it sounds like the mind of God"
A God that is part of us, inside each, and everyone of us.
Something St. Augustine called, God's grace.
