Never? How so?

Well, according to my understanding of the teaching of Thomas and Garrigou-Lagrange, the Father communicates His divine knowledge to the Son via both the beatific vision and infused knowledge.  The summation of that knowledge is all things actualized in reality.  The further knowledge, held by the divine alone, is the knowledge of all things in reality as well as all things in potentiality.  The Son receives all knowledge of things in actuality from the Father then, and, it appears to me, receives no knowledge from His own uncreated intellect.  Moreover, the human mind simply cannot contain all knowledge of things in potential simply because the finite cannot hold the infinite.
