HaShem looked into the torah and created the world. The world is behind the torah... The Alef beis are falling and seeping into the world, literally creating it!
The torah is bringing light into what was tohu vavohu - complete nothingness and darkness. #yaelioriginal
אסתכל באורייתא וברא עלמא
Bereishis Rabba 1:1
(1) ... Thus did the Holy One, blessed be He, consult the Torah and create the world. And the Torah said "In the beginning God created" and there is no beginning (reishit) except for Torah, as it is written: "God made me the beginning of His way" (Proverbs 8:22).
