God is Love. Love ensures care, the earnest desire for and provision of that which is required to ensure the development (growth, perfection, and ascendance) of that which is loved.
The material universe was constructed based on love, for the education, purification, and ascendance of the souls who manifest in the material world in the form of living beings who are able to manipulate matter to construct self and to interact with and in the material world, so that the soul may truly understand the effects of its actions, right/perfect itself, and ascend.
God is the creator of all natural/divine Laws of the multiverse (all universes). Knowledge is derived from the truth of effects based on compliance or disobedience of natural/divine Laws.
Effects can be positive or negative which result in constructive or destructive outcomes.
Constructive outcomes are Good/Positive. Destructive outcomes are Evil/Negative.
Is God Conscious?
God is both conscious and conscience. To create mankind and the beings upon the planet earth, as well as the earth itself, God must be conscious and know the effects of actions.
Example: If one creates a computer program, one must know if it works properly or not. If the program works properly it achieves the reasons for its construction, if the program is faulty, it does not accomplish its task.
Everything in existence has a reason for its construction.

This matter, therefore, is hard for me."
When then Andrew had said this, the spirit of the Saviour (Jesus) was roused in him; he cried out and said: "How long am I to endure you? How long am I to bear with you? Have ye then not even yet understood and are ye ignorant? Know ye then not and do ye not understand that ye and all angels and all archangels and the gods and the lords and all the rulers and all the great invisibles and all those of the Midst and those of the whole region of the Right and all the great [ones] of the emanations of the Light and their whole glory,--that ye all, one with another, are out of one and the same paste, and the same matter and the same substance, and that ye all, are out of the same Mixture. And at the commandment, of the First Mystery, the Mixture was constrained, until all the great [ones] of the emanations, of the Light, and all their glory purified themselves…
