In the beginning, God spoke in simple, thunderous tones to create the cosmos, both visible and invisible, casting the stars into the sky and bringing life from out the deeps of chaos.  Six days he did his work of Creation, then on the seventh he rested. If Time were to exist for an infinite being such as God in the same way it exists for Humanity, it would best be expressed in the number seven, denoting simplicity, fullness and a sense of heavenly perfection.  The Divine Mover’s time being fully utilized, he allowed time for rest at the completion of His Majestic Work.  

Aside from the quaintness of this story for many of ostentatious intelligence, there exist deep fundamental truths in stories of this quality; truths which the humble may receive.  To tell the truths held in the seemingly simple frameworks of Genesis would take the duration of all human lifetimes since the beginning of human lifetimes, for truly divine truth never reaches its bottom, and the breadth, length, and depth thereof astound human understanding.  Within the bounds of this simple treatise on time, I do not seek to pigeon hole Him for whom, through whom, and by whom all things exist and have their Being.  Rather, I seek to draw parallels to the Divine Use of Time, such that humans may more effectively use the time allotted to them in their brief days under the sun.  For truly, from out the brevity of human life comes the utter necessity of such a treatment.  Finally, if my labors prove not in vain, perhaps the sorrow allotted to Man, not being necessarily entirely removed, may at least find a resolution in the surrender of the individual to a Cause that transcends the bounds of Time itself.
