Nothingness said to Somethingness: “There is no universe right now, no space no time, nothing to separate the whole from its parts or to distinguish between inside and outside. Even you don’t exist, except in my imagination. So, let’s change this state of things and build a beginning from where to make a new story.”
Somethingness replied: “Once you thought about this idea, you became me, and now it’s you who doesn’t exist anymore. No problem, I shall do what you have asked for, what I had asked for.”
Hence, non-action became action and non-being became being. From being, a beginning was born.
In the beginning was the sound, and the sound was without form, and the sound was reigning supreme over the endless water. The sound became stronger, vibrated and expanded until it reached the water’s surface. Its touch changed the water, bringing into existence tiny ripples of resonance that spread in all directions. Soon, the ripples multiplied, grew and evolved until they became permanent, stable shapes. With them arrived new concepts, such as structure, complexity, and thought.
