This is where I go wrong. I'm utterly convinced it's the other way
Yup, "everything else" is the relative. It's the basic teaching of SCI,
Indian philosophy and even Zoroaster. I've told the story many times

this and saying that it was so incomprehensible to simple people that
the ancients made up the "gods" as metaphors to explain it.
