Wouldn't any form of creation technically detract from its original level of power?
originally posted by: Incandescent
Let us imagine that there was a single entity/force/deity responsible for creation that at the time of recognising itself as being aware/conscious was omnipotent.
If we consider omnipotance in the form of ENERGY, let us ask these three questions:
1. Wouldn't any form of creation technically detract from its original level of power? (Wouldn't a portion of its energy/power be expended in order to create something that wasn't there initially?)
2. What if this original entity made another being that was equal in power to itself? (Would the remainder of time involve a power struggle between these two entities?)
3. Could either of these two beings ever be banished or defeated? (Would there be enough energy/power in existence for one to dominate or conquer the other?)
Can these questions be resolved rationally?
