"There is nothing more defenseless than the still warm corpse of a little being."
Is it easy to be a God?

According to the notions of the believers (and of the infidels), God is the omnipotent being who created the whole world – time, space, energy, inanimate and organized matter. And perhaps, the only thing they do for God is to praise His power and kindness, as well as to give humble prayers to Him.
Indeed, God deserves all admiration, worship and respect. The world he has created is so complex, rich, deep, vast that it is more than human imagination can fathom.
And at the same time: what do these qualifications mean – "omnipotence", "kindness", "creativity", and so on? What should these abilities be, for the one who possesses them to create a world?
Let us imagine a hypothetical situation. Unexpectedly, in the midst of a light mist, an inexplicable being appears to you to make you God. For this purpose, it gives you independence of time and space (because they do not exist yet), of any events and causes that would interfere with you in the venture. You will not worry about food, water, air, health, aging, death – you have no limitations.
All you have to do is sit down on a lonely chair and use your creative skills to create ... a World.
Is it as easy as it seems at first glance?
If you are a philosopher, you will probably act like Fichte – you will try to deduce the whole world from simple thoughts, reasoning, concepts: "I / Non-I", and so on.
If you are a scientist, you will probably first draw your famous "E = mc2" formula with your finger in the mist. And you will try to bring out the richness and diversity of the future world from the energy. But...
But how shall this happen when you have no energy, no mass or speed, and you do not even have space and time (well, except for the local space-time field that ensures your personal presence for an indefinite period)?
Modern science will fold arms together helplessly, because, despite its claims that questions such as how to make space, how to make time, how to make energy – are unscientific, it should reply just to them. These are fundamental questions, while the questions – for example, on the transformation of energy already created from one kind into another – are derivative.
Well… How will you create space? time? energy? matter? life? logos? Do you have the ideas, the opportunities for their realization? How will you create volumes, shapes, colors, softness, hardness, warmth, movement, attraction, thoughts, and feelings?
Maybe, it is not easy to be a God.
