Explain omniscience

5. The word omniscience comes from two Latin words: omnis, meaning all, and scientia, meaning infinite knowledge. Omniscience is therefore knowledge that is infinite, unbounded, complete; intelligence that is orderly and related to unchanging principles. It is the one science out of which all sciences are produced.

Divine intelligence is Divine Mind in its passive, unrelated character; knowledge is intelligence expressing itself as related ideas in the human consciousness. Wisdom is knowledge that is shaped by divine order and judgment; it is the righteousness (right-use-ness) of the kingdom of God, the perfect activity and expression of the primal, passive, unrelated intelligence of God.

Omniscience is the unrelated, the related, the expressed, all in one. It includes all stages of the birth, growth, relation and inter-relation, progress, expression, and manifestation of its offspring.
