The ancient Book of Formation teaches that there is more to the universe than time and space. There is a soul.

Whatever is found in the universe’s soul is found somewhere in its space. And whatever is found in space, is found in time.

In the soul of the universe there is a consciousness from which all consciousness extends.

In space, there is the Land of Israel, a space from which all space is nurtured.

In time, there is Rosh Hashanah, a time from which all time is renewed.

It is not just a starting point, but a head, a new beginning of time, when a new consciousness enters our universe.

As the head governs the body, so all that will transpire in the coming year is first conceived in these two days.
