What is God's IQ?

Is the mind the same as the body? What is consciousness? Can machines have it?

Anybody have a guess?

As I told a young man of genius IQ once, it's not the size, but how you use it.

Having said that, Gods IQ is only as high as the imaginer, as uwot stated, though I won't speak to uwot's actual reference and meaning.

Which one? They range from the idiot to the know-it-all! The gods seem to have that in common with humans. There must be an explanation for this synchronicity! :twisted:

Hence the Faceless God in 'Game of Thrones'? Non-descript?

Never watched Game of Thrones, not that I didn't want to. I'm paying Shaw more than the internet connection is worth. I wasn't about to sign up for more so the ONLY broadcasts I receive is over the air and that of course is only a few channels.

Didn't know there was a faceless god in the game. I assume its the kind no one "prays to".

I'm just starting Season 5 of Game of Thrones. It's pretty intense for me -- not my usual medieval realm to escape into.

I think a great t-shirt would be (and maybe there is one like this)...

Front of T-shirt:

Game of Thrones (with logo)

Back of T-shirt:

Holy Crap
WTF
I did not see that coming!

God is said by many to be to be the ground of being. Therefore God's IQ will be 100 in the west. God would have to be average, being the sum total of all psyches.

You are welcome. Next question.

PS. Love GoT and Westworld. Note to HBO: your audience is now ready for Asimov's Foundation to be similarly serialised and help fill the voids between the other series!

PPS. Lacewing, season five is especially good. Season seven had issues with its uncharacteristic (for GoT) reliance on deus ex machina resolutions.

PPPS. An anthropomorphic deity would be more akin to this situation: https://static1.squarespace.com/static/ ... opardy.jpg

I don't have cable, so I do antenna, with Netflix and CraveTV. Game of Thrones is on there. It's worth it for a few shows, especially 'The Leftovers'.

The Faceless God is worshipped by assassins in the show. They are good because they are anonymous.

same here - cut the cord 20 yrs ago, "cable TV" 20 yrs ago had begun to loose Ameican Movie Classics (what!!!!!??????? no black and white 40's - what commercials now?), A&E - (what? no concerts? where did the Arts go?), IFC (what no Persian films? commcercials now?)................cable TV has been shit since late 90's,

moreso now where "avent gard" TV shows are full on asshole characters all about nihalism (but that art right?) - pure depressing shit.

no sociel statements, no bother to posit/champion any social concept. no characters that are - mosyl bad, but good enough to identify/have pity for (i.e no complex characters).

but all black and white 2 d character, chanpioning nihlism and 2d asshole characters i could'nt care less to view (or pay to view)...........................these long 20 yrs now.

oh well, i have my DVD, YT to disscover more "old shows" and IMDB to learn more of prehistoric (90's and earlier) shows - when story and character dev mattered
