Whenever I look into arguments about omnisciences, it seems to always assume that it also means that foreknowlege exists. I often see this when I look up the paradox of free will. What I am wondering is if there is a concept or word that essentially means "knows everything about the state of the present"?

    It is still called omniscience, but under a different view of free will. "Omniscience" means knowing everything there is to know. Libertarians about free will hold that propositions depending on free choices do not have truth values until the choice is made. So God is omniscient despite not knowing the outcomes of free choices because there is nothing to know there, see SEP, Foreknowledge and Free Will. – Conifold Apr 1 at 19:55
