Genesis 1:1-2:4

Pentecost +1 – Year A

Genesis 1:1-2:4

Distinction and Extension. Dividing this-from-that and generating more-and-more. With these two tools no-thingness goes beyond some-thingness to potential more-thingness.

When these two processes do not work in relationship to one another we end up with the battle any institution faces as it strives to hold itself together in the face of forces ready to tear it apart. To put this in a different and more contemporary process of creation and de-creation here is a working paper THE CENTRIPETAL NETWORK: How the Internet Holds Itself Together, and the Forces Tearing it Apart that exemplifies some of it.

Put graphically

Creation is a fractal and our brains are hardwired to appreciate it.
