Deity, Sectarian Interpretations
Many religions, mystic and esoteric paths and memeticities have different approaches to and interpretations of the nature of deity. This varies greatly according to one's memetic, sephirotic or toposophic orientation. For some, only those truths and experiences pertaining to their own god or gods are acknowledged as valid. This may refer to an Archailects which may or may not be considered co-essential with the Godhead / Enlightenment / etc. - depending on one's memeticity. A Solarist for example may consider that the Lord of Rays is the physico-cosmic embodiment of the Supreme Light, but a supernaturalist-monotheistic worshipping hu considers that blasphemous. For that matter, so do the citizens of other Archailect empires
