So I'm working on the conversation between the character and god.. I think I've come to a grand conclusion. God explains that he's not the only god, and asks the main character to look around. Scene changes to a large view behind character, of the entire landscape.. with a bunch of telephone poles/god figures. Further explains that each god has it's own purpose.. to connect each one of us, and to provide energy and communication. Perhaps a drawing of the sun behind it. The character gets it without a question, and the rest of the story flows from there.
