You can't claim to know that this is true, as you've admitted "there is no truth." Can't you see how ridiculous this line of thinking is? You've effectively discredited any and everything you could ever possibly say if you hold by this belief. I suggest you rethink, or actually think.

Our finite minds cannot fathom the greatness of God. He is full of mysteries. Thanks to the Holy Spirit for revealing some of the heavenly mysteries to us through the apostles

We speculate and indicate...but God remains a mystery.
Well, some do....speculate...actually most seem to...from what I see.
If you have 1000 monks you have one that is connected with God Himself.
I don't see God as a mystery at all. (Maybe I did 20 yrs ago, I don't rem.)
BUT, I'm older than you, probably, and was fasting for 5 days and sitting in meditation for hours
and hours and hours when I was 22.
Over 40 years ago.
Keep your nose to the grind stone...you will receive the desires of your heart.

Better to PM me if you want me to see a post to me. I miss a lot.

anyone fancy some "God is beautiful" mysticism?
found this in pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite

"But the beautiful and Beauty are not to be divided, as regards the Cause which has embraced the whole in one. For, with regard to all created things, by dividing them into participations and participants, we call beautiful that which participates in Beauty; but beauty, the participation of the beautifying Cause of all the beautiful things. But, the superessential Beautiful is called Beauty, on account of the beauty communicated from Itself to all beautiful things, in a manner appropriate to each, and as Cause of the good harmony and brightness of all things which flashes like light to all the beautifying distributions of its fontal ray, and as calling all things to Itself (whence also it is called Beauty) , and as collecting all in all to Itself. (And it is called) Beautiful, as (being) at once beautiful and super-beautiful, and always being under the same conditions and in the same manner beautiful, and neither coming into being nor perishing, neither waxing nor waning; neither in this beautiful, nor in that ugly, nor at one time beautiful, and at another not; nor in relation to one thing beautiful, and in relation to another ugly, nor here, and not there, as being beautiful to some, and not beautiful to others; but as Itself, in Itself, with Itself, uniform, always being beautiful, and as having beforehand in Itself pre-eminently the fontal beauty of everything beautiful"
