Except I think that identifying G* with God is unhelpful. God is at
best an incoherent concept, which is part of the reason why theology
is a problematic word. G* is basically Truth by another name.

Bruno wants to use theology in its original Hellenistic sense - fine,
except he will have his work cut out explaining that this is how he
intends to use the word. Of course if he picks a completely new word
then he will need to explain this as well.
