A god of light

Faith in a thinking God of Light entails a belief in the divinity of illumination: that the shining of the sun is a kind of thought, that (to quote the poet)
Is a kind of sense:
for thought is bright.
Unless it isn't commutable. Or unless (perhaps more reasonably) thinking is no more part of God's nature than 'fingers' or 'envy' are.
