God (or “Ultimate Reality”) insofar as He is “prior” to Being, to God-Creator or to “God-Person” (God reduced to being only the ‘partner’ of a human person). In other words, it is God “before” He is the Cause of Being and beings, before He has such determination (which would limit Him). Thus, Plotinus said of the One that it is not only the Cause, but the Cause of the cause.
