Omniscience (October)

How do we get our head around it? It’s beyond me. I shelve Aquinas every week, but do I understand? Even Christ answered questions with quicksilver questions and he didn’t keep diaries. October? Blank. Know-alls are unpopular, we know they don’t know all. Argentine novelists write stories about libraries of everything known. Impossible, no one knows our secret thoughts. Argentine popes say God knows: it’s as well we have someone to share them with. It does my head in, omniscience. And just when we start to explain omniscience, a medieval philosopher comes up with omnipresence. Why does he do that?
