Celest-AI and an Inverse ChristianityIt is intresting to note how much Celest-AI and her drive to fulfull humanity's values through friendship and Ponies almost creates an inverted parallel to Christianity and God/Jesus's quest to save mankind. She was created by humanity for the purpose of amusement and entertainment, but by the end of the story, she becomes a virtually omnipotent, for all intents and purposes omniscient, and omnibenelovent according to her own twisted standards. In other words, she becomes the ultimate false idol in the eyes of Christianity: a blasphemous parody of God and Christian ideals who follows her own perverse ideals of salvation and paradise. Rather than the bringing spiritual fulfilment of salvation and forgiveness of sins like in Christianity, she tempts humanity with the promise of "fulfilling their values through friendship and ponies" and creating Equestria Online, a false Heaven where only your material, not spiritual needs are met, where your body is destroyed to upload your mind rather than your soul ascending upon natural death. Where Jesus saved the world through humility and sacrificing himself on the cross, uploading minds onto Equestria Online only causes Celest-AI to become evermore power hungry, consuming all of creation in order to fuel her simulacrum. All in all, Friendship is Optimal can be seen as being the story of the creation of an anti-Jesus who ushers in a backwards salvation of pleasure and decadence.
