Before creation there was no void, no emptiness. There was only God. God was all.
God is utterly free from any constraints that do not originate from the counsel of His own will.
God consults no law for the right. No almanac for facts. No guild for excellence. He Himself is the standard for them all.
God is not becoming anything. There is no development in God. No progress. Absolute perfection cannot be improved.
The entire universe is utterly secondary. Only God is primary. All of it depends moment by moment on His thought.
