Air Quote

One way to indicate God’s unpronounceable 4-character name is a double-yud, which I discovered looks remarkably like a close-quotation mark. This synchronicity of “God = says” seemed to me to refer to the creation myth, in which God speaks and the material universe comes to be. This image, with its quote mark obscured by a cloud of unintelligible text from Genesis, is a representation of that particular version of the Big Bang theory.
