I lend a quasi-religious interpretation to information (order), but I tend to have a more agentist approach to my conception of “god” and/or divinity, which has the effect of providing sufficient interface for approximation of godliness. In other words, I don’t see information as god, but the net production of information (dissipation of entropy) as godliness. Thus those of us who can organize man & matter for the production of order (social, material, aesthetic) are “divine” so-to-speak.
Tough subject. I always “feel” a sort of energy from within, a youthful spring, when I contemplate it, and I do so often. I found this in my notes from 2017, which you may clear up some of my hazy thinking by example:
“The speakers of lies, subverters of truth, producers of confusion, the underminers of trust, the agents of chaos; the primordial enemies of human agency, excellence, beauty & the order that we, The Truthful Ones, impose on the Cosmos by incremental mastery over self, entropy & the human condition—the enemy for short.”
This is essentially the only way I’ve found to speak about gods without lying.
