God as a Composer


In a novel about the life of a Jewish family, I offer a child’s view of God as the Creator of the music to which the world dances. The child considers life to be the composition shaped by both the dancers and the dance. Together, the dancers and the dance are simultaneously unique and universal.

The dance of life takes place in the world which the child sees as a great net. Life occurs within and upon the net. Every step is triggered by and triggers other steps just like brainwaves are triggered by and trigger other waves. In this way every bit of the net and the entire net is both a stimulus and a response.

Yet the net exists only to dance to the music God makes.

See chapter 18 of The Pokhraj by Irina Gajjar to explore this and other ideas.
