6 Then God said, “Let there be a space between the waters, to separate the waters of the heavens from the waters of the earth.” 7 And that is what happened. God made this space to separate the waters of the earth from the waters of the heavens. 8 God called the space “sky.”
And evening passed and morning came, marking the second day.
The concept of space is so fundamental we can easily miss its significance. If there was no space there could be no objects. You, I, trees, rocks and any of the myriad objects that exist can only exist in the context of their being a thing called space between them.
So the second day’s creation of this simple thing called space is as fundamental as the concept of light to all creation. Without light we can neither see nor understand anything. Without space we cannot even be defined.
The first thing God defines using space is the difference between the heavens and the earth. These are the two fundamental objects of God’s project of creation.
In the world of programming where I work, man has also understood the fundamental importance of objects. Object oriented programming is a way of understanding how to create anything in software and is based on this concept of defined entities with space between them. The creation of space enables the creation of objects.
So you’ve taken space for granted but what an astonishing idea!
What are the fundamental objects of your project?
