Becoming is the essential quality of homo sapiens.
But what shall we become?
We become who we worship.
When we worship we open our deepest self to the deity, and so in our quotidian lives become a reflection of our God.
But who do we worship today? We worship celebrities. Their images are everywhere from TV to magazines to the internet.
And of course celebrities today take the place of angels and saints and deities.
We are told we are cast in the image and likeness of God, and today we are cast in the image and likeness of our celebrities.
We create our celebrities and our celebrities create us.
