Before the beginning, there was the Word, neither something nor nothing. The Word decided to make something out of nothing, and created the Before. The Before was filled with Dichotomy; chaos and peace, heat and cold, something and nothing. The Word saw this and was concerned. He knew that every force had its opposite, but nothing could exist while everything existed at once. So the Word set out to make physical entities to embody each Dichotomy within the Before.
