An age old question, answered by many people in many ways. The Torah has much, and little to say on this topic. It is deep waters for spiritual seekers. The problem is once you start thinking on the beginning, many more questions come up which are hard to answer.

Only G~d. Only G~d. Only G~d. Only G~d.
Oh am I repeating myself. G~d is the core, transcendent, not physical. Both loving, caring, and decisive, able to judge between good and bad.
