15.2 Immanence

Traditionally, God is conceived as also immanent in the universe: as completely present and pervading all of us and all material objects. God can thereby see everything and know everything about the world even if we cannot see him.

Our postulates on Being, Life and Wisdom have flip sides. Although we (as created) objects do not have being in ourselves, we still have some form of being because we do exist. There must be some sense in which we participate in the being of God, and in that sense it can surely be said that God is immanent in our existence. It is a rather weak sense, however, because it relies on bridging the gap of transcendence we have just been establishing and which is clearly an absolute difference.
