I don't think anything has nailed it yet, but I think the egg by Andy Weir is the closest.

In my mind, I thought how beautiful and ordered it would be if we were different reincarnations of each other, going around and around again.

It's beautiful from a karma point of view, everything we do bad and good is caused by ourselves. I also thought for an all powerful being it may be boring and what better way than to keep entertained.

I do prefer Andy's interpretation. If the universe is an egg and as a species our totality would be a fetus. Every thought and applied knowledge combined over a near infinity of experiences of moral understanding would just approach being a baby deity.

I honestly don't know enough about general religion to really judge it, but if forced to make a choice at the drop of a coin, I'd say I'm more against it than for. My idea of a divine being (or what have you) would exhibit traits such as ubiquity, omniscience, boundlessness, etc; it would be an entity that straddles all times and dimensions, and defies any rationale we're currently capable of possessing. It seems counter-intuitive to take something like that, and try to cram it into a rigid set of rules and customs (i.e. religion).

I believe there's far more than we currently know about the existence, and that includes both life and consciousness. I'm not sure if God's the right word to describe whatever this unknown quantity is, but as of right now I don't think God is inadequate either.
