Humans concluded that if Conditionality existed, then knowing the conditions would be necessary to enjoy and create the life—and the afterlife—that one desired.
This conclusion was unavoidable, as was: Those who knew the conditions were better off than those who did not.
And it did not take much time for the human race to remove the word "off" from the previous sentence.
Thus the idea of Superiority was born.
Superiority had many uses. Chief among them was providing inarguable justification for doing whatever was needed in order to guarantee that "enough" of everything—including God's love—was available. Knowing the conditions gave one the right to ignore others, or seek to convert others, or simply eliminate others who did not know the conditions, or agree to them.
Therefore, seeking to know the conditions of Life became a major preoccupation. Knowing the conditions of Life was called science. Knowing the conditions of the afterlife was called conscience. If one knew these conditions and understood them, one was said to have "a good conscience," or to be "conscious".
A "high consciousness" was said to result from the earnest study of something you called theology, from theology, or, loosely, God logic.
