Explanation: How can God be living if he does not have the predicates of life such as eating and drinking etc..
I am not really happy with the sentence: I think the idea here is not that God can´t live without eating because he will starve, but that one cannot have the experience of life without the experience of waht is essential for life.
The idea is relevant for the consideration of human-like artificial intelligence: you can´t build a machine that thinks anything like a human, because it does not have the experiences which are essential to living beings.
but I think "predicates" is a good word for "Akzidenzien". Hope this helps.
