In the beginning,

The creation of the world according to the biblical genesis starts with a beginning in which God created the light. The first three words of that beginning (“In the beginning”) have seen over time how they were proceeded by different things: light, verbs, noise… In the passage John 1:1-14 of King James’ version of the Bible, for example, we find the sentence “In the beginning was the Word”, while on page 24 of the book Art as Social System (2000), by Niklas Luhmann, it is said that “In the beginning, there is a difference”, and a few years before, in 1980, Michael Serres affirmed that “In the beginning was the noise”. Who should know what there was exactly in the beginning?
