God is unimaginable, the imaginable soul cannot be a part of God

The soul creates imaginary world or daydream, controls it and finally dissolves it into itself. The imaginary world is neither the total real world nor is the component of the real world like a hill, a river, a tree, etc. The capacity to create the dream is in no way related to the capacity of God in creating the universe. The soul, its capacity to create a dream and the dream can be compared to God, its capacity to create the world and the world respectively. A simile can never be the identity. God created such examples in the world to teach us the concepts related to Him.
