"…And the earth was astonishingly empty, and darkness was upon the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God hovered upon the face of the water…Let us make Man in Our image, after Our likeness…So God created Man in his image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them." (Genesis 1)
The interpretations diverge into the possibilities of creating "something from nothing" and creating something from an existing entity; between the Spirit of God as actual movement through air, as opposed to desire, destiny, and lofty and profound potential; the image of God as a form, a physical formation compared to attributes and values assigned to man.
