    I really dont know. What is to say god isnt something far more abstract Like say "The Aether "that reacts to how conscious beings perceive it ,or some sort of multiverse dwelling entity that we simpler beings mistook for god/s because of its power ,or at least what was viewed as its power . It could have vary well have been its technology (shit we dont know).

    That having been said If there is a "god " It likely doesnt know it is god/ being idolized assuming it is a anthropomorphic entity at all .

    Well do you want it to be furry? If so then it is. I think it is a Abstract . Either way you look at it it surly isnt human.

    A pre-existing logos existed before God which laid the foundations of the universe, from this pre-existing logos, God becomes aware of himself. This is from Christian Canon.

    The pre-existing Logos (Word) is not "pre-existing" in the sense that it once was, but is no more.

    The Logos is, in a way, all there is. This phenomenal world is only an emanation from that Logos. It was discovered by Heraclitus, whom we could regard as the first Western philosopher. The true authentic father of Philosophy.

    Logos is immeasurable, dynamically and mathematically infinite. It's more real than this world.

    This world of duality is ultimately unreal (illusory; a phantom). This reality has been discovered not only by Greeks.

    But also by the Indian (especially in the Mahayana Lankavatara Sutra, called "citta matra" - Mind Only)

    And by the Chinese Taoist philosophers (Zhuang Zi) and early Ch'an Masters (the "Wu-hsin").

    "Personal God" is a human misinterpretation of the Ultimate Reality (the One Mind, Logos).

    Another way to put this: God's Mind precedes his personality, or, is anterior to his personality.

    The God of Isreal people says: "I am that I am" but what is that, really? What is he saying?

    He says that he is self-referential. In fact, God ultimately is Self-reference (the self itself).

    God = Self

    To answer OP's question: God (Ultimate Reality) both is all sentient beings and is not a sentient being.

    Or, to be even more precise:

    God doesn't know, doesn't not-know, doesn't know & not-know at the same time, and doesn't neither know, nor not-know.

    As he is wholly outside of this world and supersedes it, we cannot talk about God (or better: Mind) in our dualistic terms (knowable/knower/knowledge).
