The Self Sufficient One exists outside the bounds of time and laws of physics. In fact, I believe, that he created the linear existence in this temporal world for a specific purpose. The Self Sufficient One decided to create something just for the sake of creating it, just as a human artist might decide to create something because it brings her pleasure. So he created for "his good pleasure" or as folks around here might say, “He made everything that he wanted to make, just because he wanted to make it.” Among his creations were various entities with amazing capabilities. He created things for them to do and took great joy in these beings. Just as an artist's work is a part of that artist made reality, these beings were a part of the Creator made alive. He made them in such a way that they could never be destroyed. He made all the matter and energy consisting of them constant and dictated that nothing he created could ever be uncreated. All that exists is eternal because he is eternal. It could merely be changed as in the law of conservation of mass and energy. I believe he established perimeters or laws upon his creation, for the very nature of a creation suggests a limitation not present in the creator. I guess you could say that it is ‘artistic logic’. Among these living creatures there was one [I’ll call him Beautiful One] who desired to also have the creative abilities of his maker so he began to seek them, but the Self-Sufficient One could not make this one his equal, because it was not possible. It would be like me, as an author, giving the characters in my story the ability to rewrite the story without my intervention. So, when the Self-Sufficient One explained to this one that he was only a created being and not the Supreme Being, this one disagreed. Not only did he disagree, he convinces multitudes of other created being to disagree along with him. You see, he was very good with his own brand of limited logic
and he was very convincing to any created being that would listen.
