God and the Infinite

1. What is God?
“God is the Supreme Intelligence, the First Cause of all things.” (19)
2. What is meant by the Infinite?
“That which has neither beginning nor end: the unknown.
All which is unknown is infinite.”
3. Could we say that God is the Infinite?
“That would be an incomplete definition. Human speech is too
impoverished and insufficient to define that which transcends human intelligence.”
God is infinite in divine perfection, but the Infinite itself is an abstract concept. Thus, to say that God is the Infinite is to replace the thing itself with one of its attributes; it is to define something that is unknown by referring to something else that is equally unknown.
19 – The passages placed between quotation marks after each question are the replies made by the Spirits. We have distinguished by smaller type the occasional remarks and developments added by the author whenever they might otherwise be confused with the Spirits’ replies. When the author’s remarks take up an entire section or more, ordinary type is used since no confusion could occur – Auth.
