While reading my scriptures tonight, I came across Moses 1:6.
>[There] is no God beside me, and all things are present with me, for I know them all.
After reading this verse, I was left wondering about what it means for omniscience. I have always believed ?¢‚Ç¨‚Äù or maybe have always been taught ?¢‚Ç¨‚Äù that omniscience means to know everything, to have a knowledge of everything. God’s omniscience meant that his brain was full of every fact past, present, and future.
This idea was further supported by the popular belief that humans use a small portion of their brains. Thus if we are resurrected and have 100% brain usage, we could store everything needed to know all things possible.
Now, after reading the above passage, I wonder if God’s omniscience is actually somehow having everything before him somehow. He doesn’t have every tidbit and fact and possible scenario in his mind, for example, but somehow has it all before him. Like a magic television or a giant crystal ball.
