The "goes-by-itself-ness" Is Existence

Well, Alex; but what do you think existence is?

God = Existence; and to exist is to "go by itself". You are still thinking in terms of Zeus and Ra etc.

The God of Christianity is Existence 'Himself'.

So of course God doesn't intervene; you exist, intervention is 'your move'. God's 'job' is simply to provide you with the boundary that maintains the differentiation of your pattern as distinct frpom other patterns.

Suppose you are witnessing a Chess game. Are you going to say that there are no players; because the pieces' moves are governed by natural symmetries of Chess laws?

Are you going to say that, the more we find out about the laws of the game of Chess, the less we need consider anyone is playing the game? Just because some people might make the mistake of assigning mysterious Chess moves to some force outside the game; and are shown to be wrong when those moves turn out to be explained by the symmetries/ math of the rules of Chess-
it does not follow at all that there are no players.

That the game is a coherent system that all fits together as math; this in no way alters the fact that the game itself was created.
