Meaning of God is said to be ‘omniscient’
God exists even in the absence of space
God is beyond space
Characteristic of God should be solved through His unimaginable power only and not through the logic derived based on the imaginable items having spatial dimensions.


Similarly, God is omniscient. It means that God knows everything. Since, God is omnipresent through His unimaginable power, He is also omniscient to know everything. If you are everywhere, you will know everything. Here, people take a new direction and say that the very process of knowing is the inherent characteristic of awareness and hence God is awareness. This direction cannot be accepted. If you say that God is awareness, God becomes imaginable item. Awareness is imaginable, which is a special form of work energy as a result of the function of inert energy in the specific machine called nervous system including brain. Any work requires the existence of space. If God is awareness or work form of energy, God also requires space for His existence. But, God being the generator of space, exists even in the absence of space and therefore we say that God is beyond space.

Now, you may say that if God is not awareness, the process of knowing cannot be justified since the process of knowing is only the inherent characteristic of awareness. This is again ruled out because the process of knowing becomes possible for God through His unimaginable power. This unimaginable power is responsible for the process of knowing and for the existence everywhere without pervading all the world. Any activity or power or characteristic of God should be solved through His unimaginable power only and not through the logic derived based on the imaginable items having spatial dimensions.
