GOD is worshipped in the temple
All the bits that make up the universe in general1 and mine in particular2 happen as emergent3 properties.4 Those properties are continuous processes.5 Their user quantises those emergent processes as products6 in order to make them real, and define and identify them.
So the universe in general and mine in particular happen as the emerged output of a basic7 production (or creation) process. The basic production process operates as a template of rules8 that generate order.
That basic production (or creation) template, hence temple,9 has been named G.O.D.10 The template is open,11 invariant12 and all-present.13
The emergent processes, i.e. products, which invariant G.O.D. as basic production template14 produces, namely the gods15 as differential, hence variant copies, hence identifiable products of G.O.D. change their emerged qualities from one production state (and moment) to the next.
So it is that the basic (hence principle) production template G.O.D. grounds16 all products. And that by worshipping17 the product one can, if one so chooses, revert back to the production template (or principle), namely G.O.D.18,19
Thus, by worshipping any god in/as his temple, hence as emerging, hence still in localised production, product does one also worship the timeless, formless unchanging TEMPLATE, i.e. the universal emerging qualities20 production function named G.O.D.21
In short via a product (i.e. as halted production process22) one can, if one so chooses, recover (or revert to) the principle of the automatic production process, in ancient metaphysical speculation ineptly named namely G.O.D.

1. The pantheist’s (open source) view.
2. The henotheist’s (closed source) view.
3. Hence conditional, hence in principle random and unpredictable. Note again that ’Only random events carry instruction’, meaning: ‘can make contact’ and become real, wholly defined and, as series, identifiable
4. Elsewhere called (own) qualities or characteristics, sometimes selves, (German: Eigenheiten oder Eigenschaften).
5. Actually all processes happen as discretely discontinuous because quantised. It’s because they are quantised that they can strike as bits and so become real and identifiable.
6. The (quantised, momentarily halted) user (i.e. worshipper = consumer) halts and so quantises the process in order to make whole 1 to 1 contact and become real.
7. For ‘basic’ read: general, universal; (in) principle.
8. For ‘a template of rules’ read: an algorithm or fractal; a machine, an order.
9. The word ‘temple’ is derived from Latin templum, meaning: ‘open or consecrated space.’ Temples (i.e. templates) are either open or closed source. Closed source templates (usually specialised and therefore dedicated to particular gods), have a short time survival advantage, i.e. until the competition, driven by the slow but timeless open source template, catches up. That’s when the old gods die.
10. G.O.D. is an dodgy acronym for the principle of the production (or creation) mode or means, to wit: the General Ordering Device) that is wholly recursive for all emerging production platforms (as specific, meaning selected temples and carrying the names of popular gods). Pantheists, like Buddhists and Jains, do not cognise an identifiable producer (or driver), thereby acknowledging that all the bits that make up the universe, and that have survived the selection process, thereby demonstrating their perfection, happen as self-generating and self-regulating automatons.
11. The basic, hence the universal (i.e. Pan) temple, i.e. the universal production template or principle is open system/source. Henotheistic temples, dedicated to this or that god-as-emerged-product, are restricted (often closed to others) and specialised production platforms, consequently have a short-term or local survival edge.
12. That is to say, unmoving, unchanging, to wit, the nirguna (i.e. without identifiable qualities or properties) Brahman as first described in the Upanishads.
13. i.e. ever ready to respond. Which is why the ancient Indians believed that the Brahman is eternal.
14. That is to say, the universal production (or creation) principle.
15. The gods as variant emerged products of non-emerged G.O.D., i.e. of the invariant production principle as template, emerge as transient phenomena automatically self-regulating but dependent (thus conditional) on external regulation by others, i.e. by other gods.
16. So suggested the infamous German Dominican monk, Meister Eckhart, and for which he was duly excommunicated (and, it is rumoured, murdered).
17. Reinterpret the word ‘worship’ to mean: interact with, meaning: use, apply, consume, process and so on.
18. i.e. as unchanging ‘ground’ (or principle) production (as creation) operation.
19. In the emerged quality, i.e. the product, one can see (via abstraction) the production principle. Hence in the everyday thing (for instance, a grain of sand, an atom or a hamburger) one can as it were see (i.e. extrapolate) the universe and from the thing-in/as-the-universe see (i.e. abstract) G.O.D., the production principle and if need be, experience that principle as active in oneself.
20. For qualities (or properties or characteristics) read; the gods as elaborated actual self-referencing nodes.
21. In other word, by worshipping (i.e. using or applying) one, and any one will do, one worships the basic (hence ONE) principle by means of which that one and all ones (i.e. quanta) emerged.
22. For ‘process’ read also: practice.
