Many scientists today are asking “what happened before the big bang?” In Kabbalah we learn that before real time there was “order of times.”
The impression of order remains after the creation of real time (the big bang). This solves the low entropy problem of modern cosmology.
The “order of times” preceded the primordial darkness of the period after the big bang before the appearance of light.
“Order of times” = 411 = “chaos” (tohu) = “ex nihilo.” The “chaos” of the beginning of creation ex nihilo possesses intrinsic order.
“Order of times preceded darkness” (= “chaos preceded darkness”) = “In the beginning,” the first word of the Torah, the creation of time.
Darkness preceded light (on the first day of creation) and light preceded man (the final creation, the climax of creation on the sixth day).
Chaos preceded darkness, darkness preceded light, light preceded man = 2048 = 2 to the 11th, 32 times Adam & Eve (64).
