From the ocean water evaporates and condenses in the atmosphere around particles of matter to form tiny droplets.
Similarly, from that abstract entity of which we are part and which we may call The Great Spirit, we separated and “condensed” “around” the attachment we can call individuality – the “I”.
So, instead of having something which creates, by whatever means, identical images of itself which manifest as mouls and humans, we have a separation and re-forming as described above.
Instead of us being created, we created ourselves.
What then of us being “created in the image of God”?
Fundamentally, there is no change to our original, non-dimensional form: it has merely re-formed around an attachment (perhaps “the original sin”) thus metaphorically separating itself whilst remaining, essentially, the “image” of The Great Spirit.
