In the beginning, all there was, was everything. But everything could not know itself, because everything was all there was, and all there was, was everything. All there was had to not be anything in order to know that it was everything, and so all there was experienced nothingness. With the experience of nothingness, all there was could be aware that it was, in fact, all there is, the total of everything & nothing. From this self-awareness, consciousness bloomed.
Being everything, all there is could only know things conceptually, because it was all there is, it could not know itself as more than a concept because it couldn't experience itself separately from what it was, and what it was, was in fact, all that there is. Just consciousness aware of itself.
Sounds boring. Such a beautiful flower, this consciousness, but it could not experience that is was a beautiful flower, other than knowing conceptually that it was a beautiful flower.
All this blooming consciousness knew was that it was a beautiful flower in theory, but it could not experience the beauty of the flower because it had no reference point from which to view it's own beauty. It could not view itself apart from everything because there was nothing else to view itself apart from. This flower realized that in order to experience itself apart from the whole it would need a reference point from which to view itself within itself.
So all that is then became all that is here and all that is there as well as the nothing that holds everything together. Relativity was born. The flower went to seed. The seed became the tree. The tree grew many, many flowers. The creator was born.
