If everything is simply the imaginings and role-plays of God, then surely everything is contrived: God is pretending – contriving – not to be god for the sake of achieving some specific experience and enjoyment?
What we generally mean by contrived is something we consider to be concocted for a less worthy objective. But is not worthiness of objective a subjective (contrived) judgement?
I propose that everything is worthy.
So where does that leave us?
We are simply choosing flavour of contrivance, … rather than for something to be or to not be contrived.
So let us not be so high and mighty / dismissive of television programmes like the X-Factor 🙂
