. hi! Breishis is one of the infinitely varied ways of transliterating the Hebrew name for "Genesis". It means either "in the beginning" or "at the beginning (of)" depending on the interpretation of the sentence. The quote "The whole earth..." is the first line of the Babel text. The commentary after it is my own, which is why it doesn't sound as good as i wanted it too. -Stephen (Steg) "shall you continue to chase youth after 50? your days are ready to fly away!" ~ _hatirdof na`rut ahhar hhamishim_, ryh"l.
