*
Plotinus said that the One (God) cannot be self-aware, or contemplate because this means He must think, and by thinking this implies the term thinker-object. One being superior to this world He could have not meditated upon it (the world), because this means He would be a being - material; but One is not a being, He is a non-being. One is perfection and the thinker is imperfect because the thinker needs One’s inspiration.
Plotinus was the first philosopher to use the term eudaimonia - happiness that can only be achieved through contemplation, inward outlook, meaning Reason.

**
The One (God) grated us the prophets - the prophets to whom He spoken to, to grant us the truth. How could this be possible if He cannot be self-aware? He is other-self aware and to be other self-aware you must first be self-aware. If the One knows the past, the present and the future then He must meditate upon us, us - meaning we are an object of meditation. We are His creation, similarly to Him in essence. If we are similarly to Him in essence this means He thought, this means He was self-aware before our creation to make a being similarly to him - other-self (we).

***
I agree with Plotinus. I do believe that God (One) cannot meditate, cannot be self-aware - meaning He cannot be other-self aware as well. I agree that God is perfect and the thinker is imperfect, even the genius is not perfect. I agree that God surpasses the imagination (as John Willy Kopperud said in his poem). Because if He did meditate upon us at the moment of creation - from this results that He is an material being - like all of us; from flesh, organs, bones, blood, the whole materialistic system. Then... how did the prophets managed to get the Truth from God? and how did God gave them the Truth if God cannot be self-aware and other-self aware?
God surpasses the imagination.

****
1. Nothingness we call what we do not know.
2. All is in nothingness.
3. From nothingness the world and Men were created.
4. The first knowledge from nothingness was of Men and Nature.
5. Before Men and Nature - God existed.
6. The fourth proposition is false because of proposition five.
7. The first knowledge from nothingness was of God. However, there was none to acknowledge God, but God Himself.
8. Then God is self-aware and other-self-aware.
9. Self-awareness and other-self-awareness is realized only by beings.
10. God is a non-being because He is not manifested in reality.
11. Proposition 7-8-9-10 contradict themselves.

*****
1. None returned after they died.
2. Death is nothingness.
3. Before birth we were in nothingness.
4. Before birth we did not exist, we were dead.
5. We come from nothingness and return in nothingness.
6. What is nothingness?
7. "1. Nothingness we call what we do not know"
8. "2. All is in nothingness"
9. From five, seven and eight comes ten.
10. We return into All.
11. All is God. God is All.
12. All is perfection. Perfection is God.
13. We return not "into All" but to God.
