"The Divine is not some Superior Mind"


No thought whatsoever-of any level, whether that of a human being or even of an entity that is vastly superior to the human mind-can understand God. 

God transcends all minds. 

The Divine is not some "Superior mind" but beyond any level of intellect. 

Intellect, at any level and any power, is not the vessel that can grasp divinity, which is infinite, which is beyond any definition.
