PRETORIUS, Mark. Sound: Conceivably the creative language of God, holding all of creation in concert. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.32, n.1, pp.1-7. ISSN 2074-7705. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ve.v32i1.485.
This paper revolved around the idea that sound within light is the primary medium God used to bring all of creation into existence (creatio). The theory is that the harmonic tones embedded within the initial spoken light of Genesis 1:3 are still reverberating within creation today (concursus) and can be used for the benefit of all (providentia). This simply means that nature is providentially geared to move in a specific direction, according to God's overall plan for everyone's benefit.
