The creation of Adam happened in a single moment . . . But was Aeons in the making.
After all, whatever we create in the physical form, begins it's existence as an idea first
And these ideas - like atoms and chemicals etc - have existed since the dawn of time itself
So, in that sense, creation is not making something "new" out of nowhere. Rather, it is discovering what is here already . . . Hidden in the shadows . . . And bringing it into the light.
