start of that book 

At first, God brought forth sky and ground—ground which had no form, and was void. Soon, God's spirit was drifting on a dark-looking abyss. God said, "Lights!" and it was lit up. God saw that this light (call it "day")—was good, and split it from dark ("night"). Our first day: a morning following a dusk.

Mastodon is a "FOSS" social sharing hub. A multi-host substitution for capitalistic platforms, it avoids risking a particular company monopolizing your communication.
