MG - we know they are not omniscient. The text tells us they have blind spots.

Makes me wonder at the "space between the gods" that the Nonmen used to worship!

D'oh! Forgetting!  Going to need some new trauma to make me remember.  :)

When was the last time you re-read the series? TUC will be coming soon (relatively), and I've always found a series wide redo to be traumatizing (and delicious).

I just finished my series wide re-read (3rd time).  I thought it was perfectly timed for the Amazon release date...

lmao "amazon release date".

 I'm working on my #3 as well, but lost steam after TDTCB because I decided I was going to try and make useful Almanac entries. Taking notes is frustrating.

Do you think the Thousandfold Thought could be a new god?

I don't see it as a physical/metaphysical thing, living/breathing/etc. I think its just an idea, but there is some textual support for the contrary.
