ACKNOWLEDGMENTS 

The following people were early readers of The Book of Formation, and each one of them helped to shape and encourage my process of writing it. Their comments somehow managed to pierce my stubborn mind and transform how I perceived the nature of what it is I was making. I am deeply grateful to them all.
