Clay IV.24

God did not create the universe ex nihilo. Rather the creation is a thing thrown here, thrown into a space Genesis refers to as "the deep," as tohu bohu. The creation is thrown here to do its shaping and unshaping.

What is it going to shape? What is it going to unshape?

The universe we know is a hybrid of God's word and the chaos into which the word is cast.

I say "the universe we know": we know it partially. Does God also know it partially? Does God know the flaw partially?
