No one can see me, everyone hears me, I converse with you eternally. I speak every language, I make all the new ones, nothing but death surpasses me. I am the mastermind of criminals, as well as the heroes, I know all things anything has discovered. I don't take form, I only exist, and if you ask me, I only give you your best guess. Who or what am I?

Answer:

Conscience

Reason:

Conscience is an internal voice, so everyone hears, but noone sees. As everyone has one, all languages are represented. Death kills the inner voice.

No there yet:

"I know all things anything has discovered" - not sure about that one.

  • $\begingroup$ Originally, it was "thought", though conscience works just the same. With your answer, conscience, conscience discovers, and thus "knows" what you discover. I may have to make changes in the way I asked my question, well done. $\endgroup$ – パズル Jun 5 '16 at 20:39
