The blank page

The blank page (as a 'glyph'), that which is not spoiled by the hand of man, represents God. He is the all in all (1Co 15:28) the heavens cannot contain him (1Ki 8:27, 2Ch 6:18). No eye has seen , nor ears has heard the thing God has prepared. (Isa 64:4). We are as blind men. (Isa 59:10). The blank page represents that which cannot be represented, and at the same time becomes the source of all that is revealed. It is the very foundation of all that can be placed upon it. (Col 1:17) God is the source of all.

י the yud or yod

The yud is a metaphor for God’s very first thought of creation. It is the spark of the ‘Big Bang’ but unlike its secular counter-part, it includes the attributes of personality and intelligence. Since there is nothing outside of God, he created everything within himself. The yud is the first void that God created within himself where he could put the universe. It is a metaphor for a new beginning. When it is used as the second letter of a verb it intensifies the root. As a prefix it becomes ‘he’ with God as the prototypical ‘He’. God is the first He by which all other ‘he’s are defined. Every other letter is formed by first drawing the yud indicating that all things proceed from the mind of God, as if each letter oozed from the tiniest speck in the blank page or substance of God.

ו the vav (pronounced –oo-)

The vav is usually translated ‘and’. It is a metaphor for the first word of distinction spoken by God into the void of his creation. “God said ‘Let there be Light’. Immediately the light and the dark were distinct from each other. They were also immediately joined to each other by the evening and the morning. The word ‘and’ does the same. It separates by distinguishing between two things while joining them at the same time.

א alef

The alef is formed by placing a vav diagonally between two yuds. The vav separates and joins the two creations, that of heaven and that of earth. (Ge 1:1) It is the firmament between the two waters. (Ge 1:6) It represents separation and/or reconciliation depending on its position and context.

ד dalet

The dalet is the first letter where we see the square letter template taking form. The upper bar represents man’s view of God, or that which can be known about him. (Ro 1:19). The vertical bar on the right is communication to man (which is represented by the missing lower horizontal bar). It has a right angle rather than a curve like the ר resh. The right angle is a declaration, where the curve is a revelation; it includes elements of personality and relationship. It is the beginning of the word ‘cause to speak’דבר.

ה hei

The hei is a dalet with a vertical bar on the left side. This is a response back to God. Notice it does not fully connect to the upper bar. This is because we worship in relative ignorance if all we see are the things that God declared (created by his word) represented by the dalet. We can and should respond correctly, but we cannot respond completely. (He 1:1) It is not connected by a lower horizontal, so the response is generated by the will of man. It is a vav, indicating that man recognizes the difference between God and man, from the things which are created. (Ro 1:20)
