The Big "Y?"

Realize that intelligence is merely another creation,
No less a creation than trees, mountains and stars.

So asking, "Why did creation happen?" is fruitless.
Questions "Why?" are mere intellectual constructs.

Imagine asking a fruit to explain her creative role,
In bringing the branch who bore her into existence.
Such a question confuses by calling child, "Parent".

Intelligence unfolds later on, as a future chapter,
Sharing his dramatic story in creation's very midst,
First as a garment, filtering Creator's naked light;
Then as a mold, reshaping the light into substance.

Chapter One just isn’t his part in creation’s story.

  1. It's interesting that the Jewish Sages have offered various explanations for why the world was created. However, all these rational explanations aren't the essence. They were merely like a painter trying to capture a person on canvas. While the canvas contains the likeness of the person, it does not contain the person himself. Similarly, attempts to capture the initial impulse of creation on the canvas of intellect do not convey the real impulse at all, only interesting fragments on the surface.
