Kiran, it seems to me you are tying yourself up into knots needlessly. I'll
try to make it a simple algorithm for you.
brahman does not control worldly reality,
all your tests are pointless.
If brahmavit == brahman, then brahmavit does not control worldly
If brahmavit =/= brahman, there is no reason to believe that a
brahmavit can control worldly reality either.
brahman has chosen to control this worldly reality in one particular
Now, if brahmavit == brahman, brahmavit tells you, "this is what I
have chosen, and I have no desire to change anything about it. I know
that I am brahman, and I don't need your certificate for it. If I feel
like changing something, I'll do so. I won't change anything just to
satisfy your whims and fancies. I am the abode of all powers, not you.
Do not mess with powers beyond your understanding."
If brahmavit =/= brahman, then brahmavit does not control worldly
reality, and cannot cause any changes in it.
So, you see why all your supposed tests are ultimately meaningless?
