* In what has been compared heavily to the [[spoiler: [[AssimilationPlot Instrumentality plot]] from Evangelion]], pretty much everything related to the World of C in ''CodeGeass'' fits with this trope. The show goes so far as to have a [[spoiler: "collective unconsciousness" referred to as "God" which is capable of killing immortals. Lelouch asks "God" to stop the AssimilationPlot of his parents, which it does, including killing them both.]]

* Several Wiki/{{SCP|Foundation}}s are mentioned as ([[EpilepticTrees possibly]]) being divine in nature, there's even a cult the Foundation has to fight over them. And if the Church ever succeeded in reuniting all the pieces of their "God"... Well, you'd have to be on the Moon to avoid the resulting apocalypse, and even ''that'' might not be far enough.

* Creator/BruceCoville's ''MyTeacherIsAnAlien'' series has a variation on this. Apparently humans aren't pieces of God, exactly, but they ''are'' pieces of [[spoiler: a HiveMind planetwide intelligence. Humans were poised to [[HumansAreSpecial become the smartest, generally greatest race in the known universe until the telepathic din became unbearable and early humans unconsciously lobotomized themselves to shut each other out]].]]

Then there are the Alternity, Autobots and Maximals who have evolved to a point where not only are they [[RealityWarper powerful]] and [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence transcendent]], they're actually connected to every other alternate version of themselves or something. Even more, they can actually induct said alternate selves into a semi-{{Instrumentality}}, retaining their individuality while becoming an avatar for their Alternity.

** The DCUniverse (well, multiverse) is the same way; originally one universe that got split due to a very ill-advised experiment to observe creation.

* Carl Jung's idea of a "collective unconscious". Basically, the collective unconscious is an [[AkashicRecords Akashic Record]]-like entity which takes the form of a Freudian Unconscious on a cosmic, impersonal, universal scale. It brings forth our conscious psychic experience through trope-like archetypes. Although your mileage may vary, if you consider the collective unconscious as "God", since it's after all a MindScrew to fully explain here on ThisVeryWiki. Jung, though, was very interested in explaining it away as quantum physics, entanglement theory, et cetera, and actually discussed the subject with pantheist AlbertEinstein.
