I present to you the Perfection Paradox

This is an idea I just came up with which is very simple and I haven't heard it anywhere else. First off, I believe there is nothing but God and God is a mind (idealism).

If God is omniscient, possessing infinite wisdom, he cannot learn or experience something new, and thus his supposed state of perfection is forever lacking the experience of novelty.

For this reason I believe God is a mind which is finite in wisdom but ever increasing. I mentioned this idea in a different thread but I didn't explicitly state and have good reasoning for why I believe God isn't changeless or perfect. It's a never-ending, ever-unfolding story, not a closed book.

    that is a paradox, fortunately I can resolve it:

    God isn't real.

    Therefore all the information being lost and created anew makes sense

    This is where omnipotent part comes in. God is both omniscient and omnipotent.

    God can and does do as you suggest even though it makes no logical sense to us. Because God is omnipotent.

      Omniscient is covered in omnipotence.
      State it to be both is redundant.

        Yes, but OP doesn't seem to understand that.

    The omnipotence paradox is already a thing.

    I too believe something similar: God is not omniscient because some particles have quantum behaviour (their position can't be determined until a measurement is made)

      A Creator who has already created all of reality (has all possible wisdom/has experienced, through sentient beings, all possible experiences) can no longer create or experience.

      >meaningless combinations of words do not suddenly acquire meaning
      But as an omnipotent God, he can make the sentence:
      >Can God create a stone so heavy that even he cannot lift it?
      have meaning, and then lift it. Right?

    If he is just a mind, he cannot experience anything but thought. If he is omniscient, as you said, he already thought every thought. You speak of his wisdom increasing, how? New thoughts? If so, he isn't omniscient, as there are possible thoughts he didn't think yet. Also, where does time fit into the equation? Is it outside of his mind? If so, there are things that he didn't create, mainly time, which undermines the idea of a God. If time is just another thing inside his mind, then he is eternal and unchanging, which goes against what you said.

      Wtf I didn't say he/she is omniscient. Reread my post. I said he/she is finite in wisdom but ever increasing. Obviously he/she's not omnipotent either because he/she can't break the laws of logic, even is he/she is all mind.

    there is no reality of signs and words that can describe god. nor the negation of him. he is forever above all perceptions, only knowable through the inner light of the self.
