In the Beginning (How it happened)

Post by korrill on Sat Jul 24, 2010 11:29 am

How it Happened



My brother began to dictate in his best oratorical style, the one which has
the tribes hanging on his words.

"In the beginning," he said, "exactly fifteen point two billion years ago,
there was a big bang and the Universe--"

But I had stopped writing. "Fifteen billion years ago?" I said
incredulously.

"Absolutely," he said. "I'm inspired."

"I don't question your inspiration," I said. (I had better not. He's three
years younger than I am, but I don't try questioning his inspiration. Neither
does anyone else or there's hell to pay.) "But are you going to tell the story
of the Creation over a period of fifteen billion years?"

"I have to," said my brother. "That's how long it took. I have it all in
here," he tapped his forehead, "and it's on the very highest authority."

By now I had put down my stylus. "Do you know the price of papyrus?" I
said.

"What?" (He may be inspired but I frequently noticed that the inspiration
didn't include such sordid matters as the price of papyrus.)

I said, "Suppose you describe one million years of events to each roll of
papyrus. That means you'll have to fill fifteen thousand rolls. You'll have
to talk long enough to fill them and you know that you begin to stammer after
a while. I'll have to write enough to fill them and my fingers will fall off.
And even if we can afford all that papyrus and you have the voice and I have
the strength, who's going to copy it? We've got to have a guarantee of a
hundred copies before we can publish and without that where will we get
royalties from?"

My brother thought awhile. He said, "You think I ought to cut it down?"

"Way down," I said, "if you expect to reach the public."

"How about a hundred years?" he said.

"How about six days?" I said.

He said horrified, "You can't squeeze Creation into six days."

I said, "This is all the papyrus I have. What do you think?"

"Oh, well," he said, and began to dictate again, "In the beginning-- Does it
have to be six days, Aaron?"

I said, firmly, "Six days, Moses."
