G d created the universe with purpose and design. However, in the process of creation there was left over material, as in any precision construction. Since G d is efficient this residual was an essential part of the creative process. G d knew when she created the world this residual would exist. G d's grand plan required its creation. However, this residual was not going to be used after G d's universe-temple was constructed. Since G d loves all that she creates, she did not destroy this residual. Instead she collected all the residual and squeezed, until it disappeared into a point of nothingness. G d did this not out of hatred for the residual, but because once created it was not part of her plans.


The residual, being touched by G d, glowed with G d's creative spirit. The residual exploded into a universe all its own. As it expanded and swirled, the universe that we live in, including our bodies, was formed. Many of us still can sense G d's presence. However, we are no longer part of G d's grand plan- even though G d created us so as to fulfill her grand purpose and build the universe-temple.


Now, since the divine presence is still within us, we desire to express and emulate G d's creativity. So, we go about using the natural world to create things. And with this, we can imagine that a better, more orderly universe is being created. At the same we are recreating our history, through the residual, which we call garbage, we create. Indeed, it is our way of finding purpose in life, without losing sight of what we were.


This story helps to explain the world we live in. It tells us how humans can believe that there is a grand purpose to G d's creation (even if we do not know it), while at the same time seeming to exist in a world without purpose. How the big bang and genesis are both stories of our creation. How humans believe that G d exists in a world that can be understood as developing based on physical laws, and, how we can believe in an omnipotent being, while appearing to have free will.


It tells us why we are so drawn to use resources to produce goods of fleeting value, even as (or especially because) they immediately become garbage, and why some people treat others as garbage, expecting them to find joy being treated that way. It reminds us that divinity is most highly expressed in loving that which no longer helps fulfill our plans in life. It tells us the outcast of society, for whom there is no place in the temple, can find the inspiration to create their own holy place. A new world, without the god of the old, only they will behold.


The garbage we dispose of now, will become the creative spirit of our future selves.
