I think that the most accurate statement was made by Mr Holland in his observation that God is often anthropomorphicised. The notion however that God would develop any mental state as Mr Holland correctly bracketed, is a flawed proposition. The supreme entity would exist outside of time and space because the ultimate cannot be contained by any of its subordinate dimensions by definition. If it is outside of time then it does not develop.
If you believe he is omnipresent then He must exist, or rather be present, on this plane in some form or other......even if it is by proxy ....
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
I agree!! to say that God exists only outside of time and space cannot be right.
God (which I use only as a rough descriptive label), exists in material, spiritual, time, space, anti time, anti space, anti matter, infinitely large and small, inside us all as individuals as well as connecting us all together simultaneously.
The real problem as humans, apart from our limited senses (although I personally believe we have further senses that have been conditioned out over time), is the fact that we live in a material and cyclic system. God exists within this. But also without. Look at the cycle of life in something as relatively simple as a flower. Observe it as a seed. Observe its growth from the seed to a full grown flower (with all of the variables which could be at play at any moment). Observe the flower bloom. Then fade. Then die. Then return back to the earth to continue the cycle further. The real trick here. Is to see the whole. The flower was all of these moments and still is. And still exists in some fragmented sense in the material realm. Time limits us to the moment. Material (phenomenal) reality limits us to a perspective. But deep within our hearts and minds is the ability to perceive the whole, all at once. Our existence as individuals (although we never really are separate) is also, every moment at once. We just have to experience the data (for want of a less boring word) in series. But like all experience, it is the retrospect which gives us the learning.
God is omnipresent. So are we. Material reality just purely and simply does not exist in the way that we perceive it. Nothing more than frequency is at play. To say that god only exists outside of space and time is to believe that space and time actually exist. And they don't. They are just a perspective.
in relation to thinking like god. I've long thought that sub-conscious should be re-labelled super-conscious. If we could switch off our senses. (which mainly distract us) Im sure we could perceive this in a better way. perhaps through meditation. But the conscious mind is a baffle more than it is a form of perceiving the universal intelligence.
omni: In my Lodge the Secretary is a hugh bully along with control issues. if anyone even asks a question he files masonic charges against them. He controls members mostly because they are afraid of him.

foriamhim: To omni: Grow some balls, that lodge is yours as well as every member in that lodge. If you are right, its not your problem. Nobody likes the ugliness of masonic charges. Light will always illuminate darkness, don't be afraid, be a better man.
