John the

The God
of Revelation

In the beginning – before spacetime – was the Word ... at the beginning, was the reality of the word. When all was night, when all beings were still obscure, before being beings, a voice existed, a clear word, a song in the night. In the beginning was the Song. Singing he created the cosmos. And for that reason all things sing ... And space is not speechless. Who has ears to hear let him hear. We are surrounded by sound. Everything existing united by rhythm. ... Each thing sings. Things, not created by calculus but by poetry.

-Ernesto Cardenal
