She selected an interesting collection of creation myths to introduce her Oratorio:
(KJB) In the beginning, in the beginning,
The earth was without form and void.
God said, Let there be light, and there was light.
(India) This universe existed in the shape of Darkness.
Then the divine Svayambhu appeared, dispelling the darkness.
With a thought, he created the waters, and placed his seed in them.
(North America) All the earth was flooded with water.
Inkonmi sent animals to dive for dirt at the bottom of the sea,
(Egypt) I am he who was formed as Khepri.
When I formed, only I existed. Everything was formed after me.
Numerous are the forms that came from my mouth.
(Walt Whitman) A blade of grass is the journeywork of the stars.
The idea of a creator seems universal. From the old myths from around the world to the atheist Whitman. Science seems to support Whitman as all the elements needed by a blade of grass were created in the early universe stars and novae.
I found it to be an interesting collection of creation myths.
If, as Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land asks: What if they are all right? Are we the ultimate creators? Is Ouroboros the right analogy?
