In our world of chaotic global circumstances, the roles of nations, organizations, and traditions are being reevaluated. In such times, there are individuals who have lost faith in traditional beliefs and instead choose to believe in gods of their own creation. These people worship and adore their idols, feeling a connection to them that surpasses even the bonds with family and friends. The mental fortitude required to adhere to such faith, to continue cherishing it despite its known falsehood, will ultimately manifest their idol into reality, potentially endowing it with a soul. This phenomenon could perhaps be regarded as a unique form of human evolution.
