    God is not the all pervading inert space

    (God is not the all pervading inert space. If God is pervading the space, He is only mediated God and not original God).

    Some say that God is all-pervading like the all-pervading space. There is only one space which is all pervading as is witnessed by us. The all pervading God is not separately witnessed. In such case there are two possibilities. One is to call the space itself as God. This possibility is ruled out because the inert space cannot plan the systematic design of creation. The second possibility is that God must be hidden in the space so that God is also all-pervading. If you take the second possibility, the all pervading space pervaded by God is a mediated God only and not the original God. The space is the medium in to which the God entered. In such case one cannot claim that all pervading God is the original God.
