Hermes, Philo & Dante:Simultaneity of the Divine Act
Photo: Russian Orthodox monk with a birchbark basket from Valamo Monastery; Karelia, Russia.
For with God, to will is to accomplish, inasmuch as, when he wills, the doing is completed in the self-same moment as the willing.
There is an end, then, of the notion that the universe came into being ‘in six days’.
For nor before nor after was the process of God’s outflowing over these waters.
(Dante; Paradiso, XXIX. 2)
