“Nothing” is the unseen substance – a “living fire” or energy, the foundation of matter; the living ingredients of which can be seen with the microscope.
Before “God created the heavens and the earth”, He was an immense circular power structure or entity, larger then the human mind can conceive. Within this circular entity of immense power existed two spheres or aspects also circular. One sphere was “initiation”, or an outgoingness, while the other sphere was “response to initiation”, or “inward drawingness”.
When the act of creation began which is described in Genesis 1 above, there was a “big announcement” which occurred, which scientists call a “big bang”. Previous to this thermoneuclear explosion/announcement there existed a connection between the two spheres which caused them to operate in a dance like movement in harmony together so that you couldn’t tell which was initiating and which was responding. At the explosion/announcement the two spheres became separated/divided into what the Bible calls “heavens and earth.” This is not the sky and the round ball of dirt that we live on, but the two entities/aspects which are the foundation or initiation of matter in particalized form.
The sphere called response to initiation is now unrestrained power because of the broken connection between it and initiation. It then is called darkness. Isaiah 45:6-7 “…..that there is none besides me; I am Yahweh and there is none else: Forming light and CREATING DARKNESS, making prosperity and CREATING EVIL(or misfortune). I Yahweh do all these things.”
Both spheres now have embodiments or representations of themselves throughout creation/nature which are myriad-unnumerable. The highest form/embodiment is the male and female human. The male is “heaven” and the female is “earth” and/or “darkness”.
