    Is it possible to know the mind of the creator of the entire universe.

    Consider that according to our scientists there are billions of galaxies with the potential for billions and billions of star systems, if God created all of this how is it possible to know his/her/its mind?

    There is one thing that I believe is we are what we are of the mind of God. God created us in his image where we need to go through a series of pathway to enlightenment. So, once we realize this then it will be like knowing his mind.

    Yes, You just need to look very deep inside yourself to come up with the secrets of the almighty God that created you at his own image.

    It's possible to know his purpose just by looking at yourself and the way in which your're composed. Your own body is a universe of various components which are organized in an intelligent manner, so as to keep you moving.

    And we are part of the mechanism of creation, as we started as single cells, and now have become complex organisms than can think and use our intelligence to create. Not as the almighty God; however, as humans, we are in the process.

      I agree, then how can we know the fullness of the mind of the creator.  I think thee are about 7 billion people on the planet now. I do not even know my own mind some days, what is to say about the creator's mind. smile

    What if the whole universe is just cells within another creature?  Just like we have cells inside us.

    Yes. Just read the Holy Bible. It has an answer to every question you may have.

    I believe that the answer is yes, when it comes to the fact that He gives us the breath of life and the opportunity to enjoy the goodness that life on this earth provides. It stands to reason that there was a beginning to all and perhaps one great and magnificent light source that separated and gives new life to more and more in an unending cycle of a life giving presence. Perhaps in a scriptural form..the one and original light we call our Creator, begat entities and those entities begat more to be a never ending cyclical birthing of all that is seen and to be seen. Speculation, imagination, creation, postulation, symbolization, multiplication...can words tell us what life is all about? Should we question the Gifter of our own lives and seeming to reflect that we are resentful in this gift by questioning why?

    Consciously, no,  but subconsciously the knowledge of everything is already there. You can only know so much with the conscious waking mind. If you go deeper, you will find that the creator and the deeper level of mind are one.

      Interesting, sounds like some of the Egyptian doctrine that I have studied.
      Best wishes.

    The extent of our knowledge to it is relative, but firstly, one could not know it completely because many parts of this entity are unfathomable, secondly, partially all sentient beings "know" because we are extensions of it (if it does exist).

    It is not for man to know God's mind. Some things are beyond our capability of "knowing".  Since God, is the CREATOR, many things would beyond our understanding. As a believer and a part of God's church. I believe that is possible for man to know and understand that God has a plan for him in this world and that he wants relationship with us. The Bible states in Jeremiah 29: 11-14- For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord,
    God has plans for each one of us, his creations. He wants us to choose to be in relationship with him. It is our choice to live as his children. It is something that we have to choose with our whole heart though and give him our all.  Knowing God isn't something you take lightly it is a decision that  directs your whole life. Taking a stand for what you believe is important. Our choices direct our steps, build our confidence and develop our character.
