Is god self-aware?

I think anything that would be considered a god must be self-aware. The God of Christianity, Judaism and Islam certainly is very self-aware. An unaware god would just be nature, the universe, etc. and would be completely able to be described by science, so wouldn't really be a god at all, in my opinion.
1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2And the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3And God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
4And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.
5And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
MINDS ARE SIMPLY WHAT BRAINS DO
What do brains do? Doing means changing. Whenever we learn or 'change our minds', our brains are engaged in changing their states.
When we see a ball roll down a hill, we appreciate that the rolling is neither the ball itself, nor something apart in some other world - but merely an aspect of the ball's extension in space-time; it is a description of the ball, over time, seen from the viewpoint of physical laws.
