HealingZero -- Thank you for your kind words in another place.  I very much appreciate your contributions to BigThink, as I'm sure others do.

Once again, I believe I can tailor my thinking to fit with your ideas.  I don't see God and the Void as one, but there is a very strong relationship.  By my definition, the void is simply 'imagination space'.  As I've stated many times, this is where God belongs.  From the time when we're born, we start to fill this space -- it seems to be an innate human-characteristic that we cannot avoid.  Physicists, attempting to model the physical-world, have suggested that the 'void' is filled somehow with dark-matter [ and energy ].  The religiously-inclined do exactly the same thing, and fill the void with their gods.  No self-respecting artist would ever offer a painting that showed areas of raw canvas, no matter how much they might wish to convey the concept of voidness.

Although the idea that God is imaginary may be insulting to some, there is a growing body of evidence that this could actually be the case.  The recent thread you ran on "What is your definition of God? 100 Words or less", provides remarkable support.  Because of the huge diversity in responses, it must be safe to assume that everyone has a different view about God.  The only model that squares with that observation is the one where God is "of the mind".

And it would be out of character if I did not give a further plug to my theory on a unified-religion.  At every opportunity, I have pushed for the separation of "God" and the "God-model".  In the context of a void, this is filled as required by whatever religious-model a person wishes to adopt.  But when trying to contemplate where the void came from, we need to confront the reality that there is certain information forever withheld.
