In the beginning there was existence and existence was filled with nothing and so existence created dimensions, which were many forms of itself; and so it was at the first stage.
Dimensions were filled with nothing and so existence created time; and so it was at the second stage.
Time was filled with nothing; it could move neither forward or backward and so existence created space; and so it was at the third stage.
Time and space were filled with nothing and so existence created substance and substance was brought forth from existence; and so it was at the fourth stage.
Substance had no meaning and so existence gave meaning to substance, making it coalesce and take shape as energy; and so it was at the fifth stage.
Energy was pure and impure and had no meaning so existence formed some of the energy into matter; and so it was.
Matter spread itself throughout existence and became one with it, forming into things living and things not; and so it was.
Things alive shaped from matter, grew, existed, new things alive came to existence and once existing could not be destroyed, merely changed from matter to energy and back to matter; and so the cycle was.
Things alive were called ‘life’, some life grew from simple to complex, took sustenance, reproduced, evolved, some became conscious, some became aware, became sentient, some created, some destroyed, some disappeared becoming energy, returning to become one with existence; and so it is.
All things exist, including me and you.
