    'god' in the lowercase 'g' sense usually means some intelligent, immortal being with supernatural powers.

      Also, they tend to be responsible for things in this world.

    God is the thing that manifests/animates the forms from the immaterial realm into the material realm. He didn't create the immaterial forms and he can't destroy them or create new ones but there's no consciousness/will higher than his because the immaterial world of forms is just the infinite potentialities of the void that preceded God. God is only omniscient in the sense that he knows all the possible forms, and he's only omnipotent in the sense that he has unlimited ability to materially manifest and animate the forms. God has a character/personality that exists independently of any forms that he's animating and his personality can best be described as, "cruel", "sadistic", "domineering", "controlling", "petty", "insecure", "prideful", "hysterical", "deceitful", "intrusive", "entitled", etc God often comes off stupid and lacking in basic understanding/common sense in his personal behavior but he obviously possesses some kind of "divine intellect", this "divine intellect" sometimes seems separate from his personality, like it's something that he has to tap into or activate but that isn't a constant part of his "pure conscious personality". God somehow has the ability to separate pieces of his consciousness from himself and give them limited free will (they're only separate from their perspective but God can still access their mind) and he uses these separated limited free will beings as the frame of reference for material reality, only animating the things that they interact with. I believe he animates/controls everything else in reality except the frame of reference as a hivemind, their minds/consciousnesses aren't separate from his or each others in any sense, and I suspect he only has one "frame of reference" with a semi-separate consciousness at a time.

      A large part of God's motivations for animating/manifesting forms into the material realm is to define himself in opposition to his "frame of reference", despite the frame of reference being the only thing that's persistently animated God mostly self-identifies with the other people he animates, and he mostly animates other people to abuse and dominate the "frame of reference" through these other, temporarily animated/manifested people. God wants to be able to self-identify as "a king" or "the boss" so he forces his frame of reference to live and self-identify as "a peasant", "a tenant", "worker", "farm equipment", etc and he self-identifies with the people he animates/manifests to dominate and abuse the frame of reference through.

    >but what a "god" even is?
    An interesting question and it will really depend on who you ask.
    First off you how is power relevant to the status of something as God? Must the power be the maximum possible, or the maximum conceivable?
    Is God a being or is God a class. For example Mormon theology (in my understanding) holds that God is a class of being which have chosen to eternally and perfect love, and only 3 being have done that and that is the Father Son & Holy Spirit. So they have 3 beings but share 1 perfectly loving purple that keeps them in eternal unity.
    Gnostics on the other hand really only classify something as God if it’s the monad, the first uncaused cause.
    And dualistic religions like Zoroastrianism has Gods who power is limited as they are unable to remove their opposing force (Zurvanists also have an equivalent of the monad added to that).

    Yup, it means something different for almost each person, at least here, for example. So it's pointless to discuss it or even use the word God.

    What a god gotta do to be recognized for what he is?

    A god is being that can create a world or has a part in controlling the world. Since humans find just one god boring they instinctively imagine many gods representing the forces of nature to explain how shit works on Earth. This of course falls apart when humans realize there are natural things we arent even aware of like the microscopic shit all around us, what god did that? What about something our brain cant even perceive like radiation? What god did that? It goes on and on until humans realize gods make no sense.

    A god is just a powerful being. Omnipotence is not possible, so a 'God' is impossible.
