Every thing has a place/space in which to exist. Some of those places are metaphorical, non-material, abstract and even imaginary (but no less real at that).
Superman has his Fortress of Solitude. Even Jehovah has a place of his own (see below).
Every thing exists where the sole owner is in a plaice of its own. Nothing else can be in that place*. The space of the place fits exactly as if it were custom made.
The space that fits the thing that fills the space has edges that comprise the exact shape of the boundary between "thing" and "not thing", self and non-self, "me" and everything else. The surface of the space that faces the thing delineates the boundary of the thing filling the space, much as matter delineates gravity delineates the geometry of curved spacetime [Wheeler's spacetime tells matter how to move; matter tells spacetime how to curve].
Every thing lives in its place including place itself. There is a place for place; there are places for places. Like a widget on a website every 1-dimensional space is embedded in a 2-dimensional space embedded in a 3-dimensional space embedded in a...
So too the code for this Universe is embedded in the code for a meta universe or multiverse, which in turn is embedded in a meta-metaverse, and so on. Turtles all the way down.
Nor can you have any of them without all of the others. There are no n-dimensional places that are NOT contained within an (n+1)-dimensional space. That's the power of higher dimensions over lower. But in turn lower dimensions have a power over higher dimensions: they require higher dimensions to reveal themselves. Higher dimensional things protrude into lower dimensions --- even if sometimes only by an edge or surface of zero thickness --- or at least are immediately contiguous with lower-dimensional realities.
Maybe those protrusions are portals/gateways to other worlds, other realities, or could be interpreted as such, eg per the "wormhole" idea beloved of science fiction writers and some physicists. Maybe lower dimensional creatures can't perceive or access higher-dimensional realities. Such as the "compactified" ten, eleven, or twenty-six dimensions of the string theorists. Maybe UFOs come from an invisible triangular spaceport above Bermuda. Maybe invisible flying camels built the pyramids. Maybe pigs can fly but only in July. Jus' sayin'.
Imagine that you take a pencil and draw two stick figures (Jack and Jill) on a piece of paper. The surface of the paper is 2-dimensional. You and your pencil are 3-dimensional. The sketches are 2-dimensional (excluding the height of the graphite trails left by the pencil). Jack and Jill would be able to see the trails left by the moving pencil, but they wouldn't be able to see the pencil itself. To them the trails would appear as if by magic. And were you to grab an eraser and rub out Jill, to Jack it would seem as if Jill had mysteriously vanished into thin air (as mysteriously as boats are believed to vanish in parts around Bermuda, and elsewhere).
Certainly these possibilities are not unimaginable: they're imagined in this post. Much less elegantly and much less entertainingly so than by Edwin Abbott in his novella "Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions" published in 1884 (title page pictured above).
Just as reality is embedded in hyper reality embedded in super duper reality, so too must transcendant gods such as Jehovah have a context, a place, a meta-deism in which deism is embedded: God's god, if you like (or if you don't). And yes, incompleteness theorems do apply and are absolutely relevant, but let's not go there right now.
Take Jehovah, please. Let's say Jehovah creates something, the Univrse, say. For the universe to exist it must have a place or context in which to exist, and it can't be the same place or context as that where the creator of the universe lives.
Transcendent creators stand apart from their creations, transcend their creatures. It is that apartheid, that bipartite separation that gives rise to the real or otherwise need for intermediaries, eg priests. As well as the need for instructions/commandments, rewards and punishments, and a whole host of distinctions, differences and separatenesses such as holy vs unholy and good vs evil.
If people and deity are separate, if people are just plain naturally bad (=original sin) well then they will have to be told how to be good. And some of the people will do the telling, and some will do the listening, and never the twain shall meet. Those who obey will be rewarded. Those who don't will be punished. Because, as Jehovah himself admits, God is jealous and wrathful. Not to mention demanding and intolerant. So believers had better listen up good. And just to make sure, let's write it all down in a great big fat book.
All these things arise from the nature of transcendence.
In contrast, the immanent creator is not so much creator as compriser. The immanent creator comprises creation, self-identifies as creation, is identical to creation. Quite simply is Creation.
By virtue of being creation the immanent creator stands inn the same place as creation, obviating the need for intermediaries, instructions, commandments, holy books, rewards or punishments.
There are a number of scenarios featuring immanent creators. Pantheism is one.
* In theory two things can occupy the same space at the same time. Most of matter is empty space, so if you got the molecules of one piece of matter to fit into the spaces between the molecules of another piece of matter, then the two pieces would occupy the same space at the same time.
