In this paper, the author examines the function and process of defining God, the Divine, or Ultimate Reality as a developmental process that begins in early childhood and continues throughout life. She draws from psychological object relations theories to describe transitional and transformational phenomena as creative processes that combine the objective and subjective dimensions of reality and to illustrate that defining God and meaning-making are relational processes. She draws from neuroscience and technology to support and illustrate the transformational process as a means of constantly defining, relating to, and making-meaning of oneself, God, and the Universe.
