To quote Omar Wilson, ‘You are the most powerful thing in the Universe, a conscious living being with awareness, who can observe the existence of everything else, a God-tier.’ What is the date today? What color of shoes did you wear today? What if I told you time is nothing but a mental construct in relation to the cosmos? Granted, the 365 days that make a year and the 24 hours that make a day relate to cosmic happenings, but months, a week, and a second have no cosmic relevance. The colors we see are also false, your shoe is not red, and the sky is not blue, so how real is reality?

Another concept is language and the mind. Our minds can easily visualize and understand complex structures and elements, which are difficult and too extensive to express in our current language. How often have you had an idea that is mentally clear but impossible to explain verbally or in writing? That aside, we are intelligent beings with numerous years of experience on earth, yet still degrade the very life system we depend on, participate in pointless wars, and are still stuck on limited views on humanity and diversity. Creating Gods is a unique and intriguing book that seeks to challenge our way of life.

Omar Newton Wilson speaks directly to you as the reader, making it seem like a personal conversation with him. Additionally, he uses several relevant examples to reinforce and help visualize and understand the points. For instance, a mental exercise where the reader describes a rock in the absence of language, and the senses like touch and smell are introduced systematically. This makes for a very engaging and participatory read. Additionally, the author includes rhetorical and riddle-like questions that leave the reader pondering more about what is under discussion.

My favorite aspect of the read is the inclusion of all schools of thought in the arguments, including religion and non-religion. For instance, when making a case about us making our own realities, the author includes Christian teachings, spiritual, agnostic, and atheist beliefs too. This makes for an exhaustive and wholesome read for anyone. There is nothing to dislike; the book is also fun, and the author expresses various emotions as he also comes to several conclusions and realizations.

I did not find any grammatical errors, evidence of the book’s exceptional editing. The language employed is intelligible, with only two cases of profanity, and every concept is easy to comprehend. The book is a quick read that instantly captures one’s attention. It provokes critical thinking and highlights our true potential and the benefits of promoting the right ideals. I gladly give it a rating of 4 out of 4 stars. I recommend Creating Gods to anyone looking for a critical read that prompts one to appreciate the immensity of life and the significance of renewing our values.
