"Elokeinu V'Elokei Avosainu"
Shouldn't it be written in the opposite order? Chronologically, it would only make sense!
But no, first there was Hashem. And only Hashem. His Light filled the world. All of the world. Then there was the Kav of Tzitzmum (see the letter 'vav' tis a straight | ). And then afterwards, we can have Elokei Avoseinu (Ima and Abba..Chochma and Bina)


Same with "Shma Yisroel Hashem Elokeinu Hashem Echad". First 'havaya', elokeinu, second 'havaya'.
