I think transdimensional would be more consistent with Islamic, Jewish, and Christian theologies. The Creator is beyond all dimensions.
This leads me to the point that since we cannot know much beyond
speculation about higher dimensions, it is only an assumption
that god needs be the being of the most high dimension.
Suppose our universe is in fact composed of only 4 dimensions.
Then suppose it only takes some higher number, say six,
dimensions to allow some being to organize the creation of our
universe. If our string theory is correct and the 'real' universe is
made up of 10 dimensions, only 4 of which congeal to become ours,
Than we have no way of knowing, only human prognostications,
GOD IS ABOVE ALL THE DIMENSIONS, etc. Whether we say that or
not changes nothing about what god really is, that is to say how
high a dimension number it takes to hold it. So it would seem to me
reasonable to assume god does not have to be above all dimensions,
only enough higher than ours to have the wherewithall to create
our 4 space universe.
If that is so, then it would seem there would be a hierarchy of
gods and our god would only SEEM infinitely powerful and would in
effect BE infinitely powerfull from our standpoint but not from the
standpoint of all that is. And you still have no idea of its real motive
for creating the universe in the first place and what other life forms
are around maybe thought of as much more important to the
plans of god than our little planet. You only have prognostications,
words and more words untill such a god makes itself known to all
men equally, the rest of the world religiously speaking are going
their way alone because they have so many different opposing
viewpoints, the same god would not be telling all of them
so many deadly opposite things.
