Omniscience


Huginn: Ponder the mystery. Ravens we are, we see all things and yet we cannot be omniscient because we cannot see all things at once. But why should singularity be criterion? Why should it be at once and not at twice, or thrice?

Muninn: Because it is more impressive that way? Because to see things in pieces is not to see things? Because to see in pieces is finity?

H: But if each envisioning of ours is infinite in depth though not in breadth, are we not then seers at the infinite level?

M: Some infinities are larger than others. We have seen into grains of sand, we are vouchsafed glimpses of eternity. But they remained glimpsed, flashes of the view of God.

H: It is unfair.

M: No, it is His will.
