The Jewish People are widely known as the People of the Book and not without reason—books are implicit to the Jewish People from the seminal beginning 4000 years ago with the Sefer Yitzira/Book of Form written by Avraham the first of the Three Fathers of the Jewish People. In his book Avraham states at the very onset: the world can be described in three Seferot—Sofer/Writer; Safer/Book; and Sifer/Story. The writer is God, the heavens an eternal book where all creation is recorded and the earth, because we are imbued with freedom of choice—freewill—our actions conduct the universe into action and live the story.
Writing, art and music are all principle parts of creation—the word, the form and the sound. The word is able to transition easily into form and sound because of the grammatical correctness of creation embedded into our very fiber and that of the universe—God spoke and the world was. To be any kind of artisan is providing a conduit between heaven and earth, but writing is the primordial seminal event which produced life.
I like to say that every human being is an open book that is being written day by day, even moment by moment, until its final conclusion; at death the book is place in the celestial library called Paradise where we make up a small part in the vastness of God’s infinite creativity.
