Simplified Theistic List

A simplified list of postulates may therefore be given, after reordering to lead from God down to us, as follows:

Postulate’ 1  
God is Being Itself.

Postulate’ 2  
God is Life (unselfish Love) Itself.

Postulate’ 3  
God is Wisdom Itself.

Postulate’ 4  
God contains proceeding Actions.

Postulate’ 5  
In God, there is an infinity of what may be intellectually distinguished, but what is not in fact separated.

Postulate’ 6  
All the world, and each of its parts, is a kind of image of God.

Postulate’ 7  
The life we have from God is in accordance with what we have actually done.

Postulate’ 8  
Whenever love acts by means of wisdom, that action is a conscious action. There is consciousness of the production of the result and also of the delight that arises from the achievement of that production.

Here, again, Postulate 2 may be taken as implying Postulate 1, once the nature of Love itself is understood as substance and Being.
