The book begins with a long quotation in Hebrew, which comes from page seven of Philip Berg's book The Kabbalah: A Study of the Ten Luminous Emanations from Rabbi Isaac Luria with the Commentaries Sufficient for the Beginner Vol. II, published in Jerusalem by the Kabbalah Centre in 1973. The quotation translates into English as follows:
When the Light of the Endless was drawn in the form of a straight line in the Void... it was not drawn and extended immediately downwards, indeed it extended slowly — that is to say, at first the Line of Light began to extend and at the very start of its extension in the secret of the Line it was drawn and shaped into a wheel, perfectly circular all around.

In the book of Genesis, the lord said let there be light! Do you really think anything religion offers is actually going to explain the origin of the universe? How could man possibly know? To the universe, mankind has the lifespan of a fly.
(1) I'm not suggesting that, it was a 'some being', it's obvious to me that there was no conscious being other than that of the Universe, or what the Universe is a construct of.
(2) I'm not suggesting that early man was able to "share" this experience, rather be able to perceive it with out applying reasoning or comprehension.
Meaning, they (or a select few) were already predisposed to receive this information, for the construct of their conscious, subconscious understanding was influenced by the 'energy' in which surrounded them.
Being without the distractions of evolved communications and understandings of the material plane, including other people, they were more easily influenced and had a heightened state of perceptual cognitive abilities to said material plane.
It's not that they were able to understand it, rather they were able to receive it...'subconsciously', and then having the ability to consciously 'listen to their inner voice' in regards to the truths about the metaphysical world...
This is not my area of interest, i'm not claiming to have it all figured out.
I'm not saying this is what I believe, it's just theory....
The result of these interactions then equated to Pantheism... which then gave rise to Paganism... equating 'gods' with cosmological bodies... passed down through symbolic renderings...
see: David Talbott's film 'Symbols of an Alien Sky
I love how conversations on ATS get off topic soooo quickly...
I'm not going to restate the question again...
If you'd like to discuss the evolution of communications and consciousness...
