God is a woman who wants see herself through the eye of a man. So the Goddess created man so She could be known as the One who has no second or other gods before her. Human consciousness is divided into male and female views: the male wants to see; the female wants to be seen. God is androgynous: He/She wants to see him/herself being seen.
If God is consciousness, and the self-conscious Ego is made in the image of God, then God made Ego as an image of himself so he could have a surprise when He breaks out of the image of himself and discovers His true Self…of when God sees God and breaks out is a cosmic laugh.
