Perhaps it has to do with the master-slave dialectic. I'm VERY new at this...trying to figure it out also, but if I recall anything, a master is nothing without his slaves (as is vice versa). or:
God needs us to believe in him, for if we don't he doesn't exist... which might also mean that we need God to give us purpose. so this is a guess. let's hear what others have to say...?
