Also, the concept of a super intelligent entity torturing someone may be almost contradictory, for they may realize the identity of all minds, and therefore they would be torturing themselves.

That would be an inconsistency of values, but not a logical contradiction.

Yes. And self-torture exists. It is called masochism. Is God a masochist? That would explain some things, but I am not sure "It" can qualify for that, as God, according to many religious theories, has no nameable attribute.
