Sorek is living his second month in the womb, the month of Iyyar on the Hebrew calendar. He meditates:
"You're asking me if I know about the human custom to give names to newcomers. Yes, I know that my earthly parents will give me a name as soon as I am somewhat more of a person. But that is just earthly procedure. With my Creator, things are different. You see, except from the names on His hands, He has this book with names. I believe my name is in there too. As a matter of fact, I believe all of His creations may be in there, even the stars that no one can count. Okay, I admit, I am bragging, but I am bragging about the truth. It is said of my Creator that 'He has decided the number of the stars and calls each one by name' (Psalm 147:4). See what I mean? That is what I would call a pretty heavy statement. So, anyway, my spiritual name is in this book too; it is up to me if it stays there."
