Stephen Hawking, physicist and Nobel laureate, defines God as a set of scientific rules and principles, including the laws that have not yet been discovered. How does Hinduism View God?

One of our definitions of God is that he is of the nature of order. All the laws in every field of existence, including the laws governing physical phenomena, psychological  phenomena, and morality, are God. Scientists do not include morality etc, but consider them to be laws. In our view, all these laws are determined by one fundamental law, which we call the manifestation of God. So, we see God as being the fundamental order through which the various laws manifest. What is that order? How does Hinduism or Vedanta View God? Is that order somewhere out there? N0, we see the order and harmony that governs the entire universe to be our own self. It is not just a mechanical principle. This order is a conscious principle.
