Huge and holy, with no beginning and no boundaries, both in and around, near and far, always… I AM.
Moved by the impulse to create, I AM breathed a word so loud that it will never be equaled, and something became. It was vague and formless, neither light nor dark, hot nor cold; but it was; and I AM stirred this new thing, and watched and waited with infinite patience, for what is time for a being who always was and always will be?
There became gravity, and bits of what I AM had created became gasses and minerals, and separated into great, gaseous, blazing orbs or into spheres of diverse minerals. And I AM created joy.
It came to pass that the gasses and the minerals that made up one of the spheres became separated into seas and land masses, and within the seas molecules floated and roiled. Behold, single-celled organisms became, and there was life. And I AM felt joy.
In time, the organisms began to split and multiply, differentiate and diversify. Some progressed from algae to mosses to ferns to conifers to shrubs and grasses and flowering trees, others from bacteria to mollusks to reptiles to birds to mammals. And I AM delighted in the living things, and saw that they were good, and I AM felt joy.
And in the blink of an eye, or over millenia, for time is meaningless for the eternal I AM, a being appeared with awareness that allowed it to conceive of the existence of holiness, a being also moved by the impulse to create. I AM looked on this new being and saw both its origin in the rich, verdant soil and the reflected visage of the great I AM, and called the being human, and ha’adam, and o ánthropos, and many other names, because one tongue was not sufficient. And I AM saw that it was not perfect, but that it was very good, and I AM wept for joy.
