Nope, I can only make out a few things

I'm not reading it translated, I actuality own the book.

Yeah all of that is practically within our own grasp. Even though the scale is smaller, the means are imperfect and the hopes for a result are very ambitious, to say the least, we can already roughly trace the path to creating / becoming a quasi-god (or how you named it Proto-god).
Imo if there are more species who achieved that (and perhaps humans will join that list eventually) it should go like this:
Quasi-God => Demi-God => God => Prime God.
Quasi as in "resembling a god" = same concept but flawed, underpowered, severely limited etc'. Demi as in Partially God = A real god but still an immature one (has the full potential but did not consume enough info). God = obvious. Prime-God = Same as the former but the 1st to ascend (probably been a god for so long it simply retired LOL).

Anyway I'm glad that the concept of godhood, that I constructed for myself, entertained you for a couple of days :>

What? No they are not "living organisms". They are a wandering consciousness with the collective computational power of an entire species (probably genetically, chemically and mechanically enhanced). The "physical body" of such a creature is probably a hyper-complex bio-computer, with micro-tech tissue and a zero-point thermonuclear (fission+fusion) power supply, hidden somewhere in a fortress planet.
As soon as you can analyze information so efficiently you only need to improve your ability to sense (i.e gather information in order to analyze it). That implies that it might also have some kind of drones that collect data. Even with the ability to truly understand the mechanics of reality (stuff like "Why is the mass of a quark is X and not Y" for example) a god is still limited by the constraints of this reality. Meaning that if the universe expands faster than light travels then as long as God remains stationed in a single spot, the amount of information he can devour is severely limited because some of it simply never reaches him... Gravitational waves, light particles, gamma radiation etc. These signals take time to travel trough the vast expanses of space.

So... God has no "living organism" of a body. At least IMO. It has a processor / storage unit, siting somewhere safe, and a bunch of sensors actively scanning the universe. There is no need to reproduce physically. Probably no way to actually do that without undergoing radical changes.
Plus going for a physical reproduction, in the case of a physical god, simple mitosis-like process (what cells do: simply slit) would be far more effective and efficient than courting, sex, pregnancy, birth, infancy, maturation...
Hell even if you do go for that primitive way of reproduction you can still do it like some plants and creatures do - knock yourself up.

As for being able to split your consciousness and by doing so - technically reproduce... I don't see a problem. Even I am capable of having a conversation with myself. Some people have split personality disorders.
As a god you should be perfectly capable of splitting your consciousness and conversing with yourself. And unlike humans, a god would retain perfect cognitive ability and full access to the entire storage, regardless of how many times he had split himself...
The best part is that two perfectly logical computers can not truly predict one another (specially when facing complex decisions). Meaning that splitting himself won't simply result in an echo / mirror personality but generate a new being.

Thing about infinity is that it can be flawed but still be valid both in philosophy and reality. There's an "incomplete infinity".
You can stretch anything finite into something infinite. Like the concept of the ever-approaching second. Seconds still pass, clearly. But each second can be divided into two halves, right? And then the halves can be divided into quarters... If you keep dividing the second it is, de facto, infinite.
Same with infinite-infinity. It's still finite but not something we can comprehend. There's likely no real / true infinity. Something with truly no end or beginning.
Something like that would be conceptually flawed because it would also imply that it is not polarized. Something not polarized has no right to exist, by definition. Existence = polarization. The only unpolarized thing that was allowed in science, so far; was Aether and even that was scratched as soon as Special Relativity was perfected and reintroduced by Einstein.

Simple explanation for the layman would be: 1,2,3,4,5,6....Etc'.
You may keep counting "forever" but it is finite. How? Well there's the beginning, right here: 1.
"True infinity" has no beginning nor end... Yet by having a beginning you, by definition, have an end. having a beginning makes you polarized and only polarized things can be real.
Therefore using the word "Infinity" and assuming a no-beginning-nor-end mambo jambo is, what I'd call, preposterous.

When I said that a god would be infinite I meant that it is also a sort of imperfect infinity. That can be attained. Incomprehensibly hard. But still possible.
That means that it can also be calculated. And it is the largest possible order of magnitude since 2x infinity would still be infinity. Exactly the same rules as 0. You would not be able to divide by infinity and multiplying by it would always yield the same result.
You can calculate a Zero as the "no-value value". Infinity would be the "value-value", with a fixed size that encompasses everything except from nothing, That makes it finite because "nothing" is not a part of "everything" yet you can't have "more than everything" since "more" is a part of "everything".
Having "more than everything" is like having "less than nothing".
And no -1 is not less than nothing lol. A negative is still something.
That is how shit works =)

Instincts are behavioral patterns that creatures are born with. Building a nest, avoiding dark places, fearing spiders etc' these are instincts. There can be a hunter in the dark bush, the spider can be venomous and a nest would be comfortable for the hatchlings.
Hunting is an instinct. Dogs chase after what runs away from them not because of hormones but because they react in this pattern to this specific trigger. This is why you throw something and they fetch it.
An instinct can be even more basic. A crab that latches on to something will not let go as long as you try and wrestle it out. Only when you give up it will leave it alone. A cat twisting in mid air in order to land on its feet. There's no thinking involved and no hormonal reactions. Hormones are too slow and thinking can cause a malfunction.
(Note: In some more complex "instincts" like fighting for territory / domination / females, hunting, nesting, migrating etc'; both hormones and thinking are involved but these are not PURE instincts but rather "instinct-driven" patterns).

You're confusing some stuff here and it's not helping.
Feeling hunger is not an instinct. You simply lack something and you consciously do what you have to, in order to fix it. Instincts are subconscious. Hungry babies sucking a nipple is an instinct though (they don't try to poop on it or listen to it yet they suck on it when they are hungry and do so without thinking). And yes we did lose so many of them. With the dulling of some senses, changes in physiology and lifestyle; we could not even retain some of them even if we tried to.
Hell you even lost the instinct to suck on a nipple for food...

Well you could assume that a god still thinks about sex and procreation... I'm not limiting you in your assumptions, ideas and hopes. Personally I am fairly certain that this would be the 1st thing it will forget. A god can technically be one or many and still retain full functionality and not change in its nature. Like a Qubit. If you are everything between 1 and 0, you can technically spread an infinite amount of infinite parts. For example between 1 and 0 you have 0.5. Well god is now TWO infinite individuals:
0 - 0.5 (an infinite amount of numbers and we'll call it God A)
0.5 - 1 (another infinite amount of numbers and we'll can it God B).
Now you have two infinite beings that stem from a single infinite being.
...
That basically means: Fuck procreation.

But we live in, what is most likely, a completely different environment.. Their survival instincts / traits may turn out to be detrimental for us, to say the least. Aliens could have developed in an ocean planet with a high concentration of electrolytes, in the water, and and an abundance of solar radiation. What these aliens did for survival, back in the day, would have been the polar opposite of what we did (and still do, in many cases).
Them implanting us with their traits would be equal to trying to implant ours into octopuses... The poor thing will either die within the hour or kill itself.

Besides I disagree with the idea that we retain our past necessities. We no longer hunt, walk naked or eat raw food. Our body changes, our subconsciousness adapts and we only genetically resemble our ancestors. Our form and function is completely different even in this day. Make that period several times longer (assuming it did take those species more than a day to become a god) and I bet they no longer, even genetically, resemble their ancestors. The "survival" imposed traits would be long gone.
Ascending to godhood and being capable of comprehending the truth behind mechanics would further prove that these remains, the results of what was a necessity in the past, are nothing but dead weight. These would be left behind. They'd simply not "transfer that data"...
=
Like ascending from infancy to adulthood you forget all the delusions of the child you were. In fact you forget even most of what you've experienced and everything. The brain filters what it then perceived as massive everyday miracles, into the recycle bin, after it learns the truth and requires storage space for "more important" things.
Ascending to godhood would be an even more demanding process. The past of the species would be complete forgotten. They will obtain a new identity, a mature one, so to say. With the history of their species being nothing more than Childhood Pictures and some funny stories.
"Back in the days when I was crawling on all four, and these huge people fed me, I've learnt how to chew on my finger in a way that made the itch in the gums go away"....
Lux_Lucis Dec 6, 2017 12:28 AM
I would not jump the gun and and say that we were created by that artificial god. We might have been genetically tempered with (and there are plenty of evidence to leave that possibility open) but it is almost absolutely certain that we were not "created" by anything.
In fact if you bring up religious quotes and sources I will offer you a religious interpretation of said quote.
"Made in the image of god":
Not physically similar or with the same feelings but rather a creation that has the ability to create another creation with that ability to create.... And so on.
We will create robots, AI and genetically engineered creatures with the ability to keep doing what we did with them. This is a process of creation that can only be halted by mass extinction of some kind.

We can understand history but we can do this because we are humans and they were too... And we don't necessarily relate.

LOL. Pls. Apple has nothing to do with this so idk why bring it up... And how are they "revolutionary"? Never mind I don't want to know. Leave Apple for another discussion with someone else please.
Lux_Lucis Dec 5, 2017 9:33 AM
Okay let's, for the sake of having an amusing conversation, presume that ascending to godhood and retaining emotions; is, in fact, possible
Why would you then take a whole new leap into the illogical and presume that a god is wired similar to humans? Why do you assume that they too feel the same emotions as we do? To feel what we do they must share our values, our culture and (even more important) have a similar brain structure.
Even among humans we have differences. There are psychopaths who have no empathy because there's a slight "deformity" in the wiring of the brain (somewhere between the amygdala and the fusiform gyrus, similar to Cotard's symptom).
In some cultures cannibalism is acceptable and even celebrated, to this day. In others you can have many wives. Then you hop into "normal" countries and suddenly that's barbaric. But why? How is it any more barbaric than everything else we do on a daily basis?
If our morals are questionable at best, disputable even among ourselves, change with time and conditions; and the values differ from person to person. With only few emotions that are actually commonly shared, how would a completely alien god relate to us?
Sure they might understand us but that hardly implies that they will agree and relate to us. And who are "Us"? A specific group of humans who happen to practice what god relates to most? All of the humans, despite the multiple inconsistencies and complete and utter oppositions?

The alien species probably had a completely different body, different conditions, culture and values. Maybe they'd rather help the strong than the weak? That would be a far more rational and practical choice. Maybe they think that honoring someone is letting them deal with their own issues and helping someone is disrespecting / shaming them?
Maybe they even had over 9000 different emotions but lacked Empathy and Envy and other stuff that we, the humans, have?

So while perfection might just be impossible I would rather avoid assuming that our imperfections are identical.
Lux_Lucis Dec 5, 2017 8:53 AM
A pet would imply emotional connection... Imo the idea of an emotional god is absurd.
Even if it is capable of that why would it feel for, what we proclaimed, the victims? Our morality and reasoning are flawed and emotions are even more so. Why would you assume a god has flaws? Or that they are similar to the mainstream flaws of humanity?

And you can't have "reasonable emotions"... This is an oxymoron.
Lux_Lucis Dec 4, 2017 2:38 PM
Well that's what IMO makes sense.
I don't like the idea of a spontaneous birth of a god or a being that never came to existence since it is the existence itself. Therefore if I want the concept of a god to make sense I need to resort to the 3rd and last option... An artificial god.
Now it might have been created by something else or constructed itself in a manner similar to what I've described but it does not make the result any less impressive. In fact it probably is even more impressive than a "natural god".

Hey there fam. I made this account years ago, so a lot of the stuff I have on there I may not remember, and I could feel differently on a manga and/or an anime now then I did back then. I haven't used this account in years either, you commenting is the first time I've used this account in a very long time.

I couldn't find a website to read it, but I did find this, if it helps. It's the Japanese Amazon that's selling it. I understand if you aren't looking to buy it. Hopefully this helps you, and good luck finding it, you deserve it always! : D <3 !
