It is philosophically impossible for such a being to expand. If it is properly God, and created and sustains all things, and is the first cause, the unmoved mover, so to speak, it cannot expand. For it to expand would imply firstly that it is not infinite, which I claim to be impossible, and secondly that it has a cause before itself, which would effectively strip it of being God.
Interesting - it's still impossible to completely understand from our viewpoint I guess, because we have to assume so much - even things that seem to make philosophical sense are largely based on our own limited beliefs. But it's still fun to try and figure it out.
An analogy I often think of is to compare source to all the notes and frequencies that exist in the musical scale. We exist to make music with these notes. It's certainly possible that every single combination of notes already exists within source, but maybe it was more perfect to let us discover them?
