I think Poe called it unparticulated matter.
Claiming god was this all encompassing aether that contained our thoughts and dreams(sleeping thought)and these thoughts and dreams are energy and like energy is never used up or diminished it just changes from one form to another! This collective timeless wisdom is what god is and that it permeates all of us and all of existence! God is us and we are god and this knowledge is there if we know how to tap into it!
Does this come close to what you are saying?
