Best I draw this point back home to the thread with a literary reference (admittedly, a broad one) to architecture, vis-a-vis it's relationship to the communication of man's ideas as a defining agent of his own individuality, as well as a Divinely-inspired method by which he has become creator (notice small 'c') as The Creator has been from and 'In the Beginning..."

Taking nothing more from the omnipotent and omnipresent One, I would offer that it is with Divine blessing that Mankind has been allowed to retain and continue to exponentially proliferate the gift of communication (in every form)...and along with it, the individual self. For the Creator (upper-case C), it would have been a small effort on His part to take it back at any time in Mankind's brief history.

In other words, our ideas and our human individuality is sanctioned by God, rather than God having placed sanctions upon Mankind as a result of his individuality and his ability to create and communicate his own ideas.

Thoth, Moses, Hermes Trimagistos, Guttenberg, Gates...and even Howard Roark have ALL been given a Divine 'carte-blanche' to dream, create into physical reality their individual ideas...and ultimately share them through the word of man...in all of it's manifestations; past, present and future.

From The Fountainhead, by Ayn Rand:

“From the beginning of history, the two antagonists have stood face to face: the creator and the second-hander. When the first creator invented the wheel, the first second-hander responded. He invented altruism.
“The creator—denied, opposed, persecuted, exploited—went on, moved forward and carried all humanity along on his energy. The second-hander contributed nothing to the process except the impediments. The contest has another name: the individual against the collective."
