The Midrash tells us that the letter aleph complained for hundreds of years that it was shortchanged when Hashem created the world, as it was the second letter, beis, which was chosen to open the story of creation, Braishis. The aleph received its due, however, at mattan Torah, as the aseres hadibros start with the letter aleph, Anochi...
Letters obviously don't have an ego and don't get jealous or upset. What are Chazal trying to teach us?
Aleph represents the full sense of Hashem's presence, the alufo shel olam. Creation masked Hashem's presence, hence the story begins with a beis.
Mattan Torah restored the aleph to its rightful place, as Torah is the key to finding Hashem's presence even within the physical. The ma'amaros of creation, devoid of spiritual content, were transformed into the dibros of mattan Torah, which infused the world with spiritual meaning and potential.
