Proverbs 8, (1 - 4, 22 - 31)
Does not wisdom call
And does not understanding raise her voice?
'In the deepest parts of God’s universe
I have been privileged to witness the birthing
of the foundational event,
the very portal of creation.'
Wisdom cries out
‘To you, people with sentience, I call
with a cry that is to all that live and have understanding,
in this miraculous, mysterious and marvellous cosmos’.
‘The Lord created me in advance of his first acts at the beginning of time:
I was his first foundational act, before even plasma and subatomic particles were set loose to discover valency and learn to discern their rôles of amalgamation’.
‘And long before time sprang into existence at his Word’.
‘Long, long before matter prevailed over anti-matter, and unimaginable aeons before the first-generation stars erupted to impregnate our galactic locality and others with water and heavy elements’.
‘Then was I brought forth to watch and assist with many of the wonders of creation,
such as the wonder of stars shining light onto their planets and the gift of impenetrable depths of waters, not only on the surfaces of many planets but deep within their mantles’.
‘Even before accretion discs began to form to allow the shaping of orbits and the sculpting of their constituent planets and moons. Long, too, before any carpets of land were woven and made subject to the mighty movements of tectonic plates
I was there also at the earliest patterning of galaxies and witnessed constellations forming, each for a season, when viewed from the myriad locations and times of far-flung planets and moons’.
‘But even yet more wonderful was to be present at the first formation of life on hospitable planets and to watch it evolve, hoping that as sentience developed anywhere in the cosmos it would call on me to guide the responsibility of stewarding its planetary home’.

V4 Plasma in this sense is an ionized gas, at very high temperatures (as in stars and nuclear fusion
Subatomic particles, or quarks are the building blocks of atoms which were for many years
regarded as the smallest entities in the universe.
Valency is the ability of a chemical element to combine with another.
V6 Our sun is a second generation star and our solar system is formed mainly from the remnants
of a colossal explosion of a first generation star which gave rise to heavy elements. Ie, those
with higher atomic numbers. Eg Aluminium (atomic number 16);Iron (atomic number 26);
Gold ( Atomic number 79)
V7 (In 2022), the source of water on planets is still not resolved but earth has a huge sub-surface
ocean as well as the visible seas on the surface.
V8 Accretion discs are formed around a new star as its gravity attracts gases and solid matter
which form planets (and other bodies). These rotate around the star in orbits delineated by the
