Levels and layers

The Universe [Egg] and the Atom is divided spiritually for convenience sake symbolically into five sub-layers – layers that were visited by spiritual travellers as they changed vibrational states.  There are five main layers, all symbolic, all representing vibrational layers, whose symbolism is actually taken from what happens to water as you heat it ………….

 ‘Earth’ covers both middle and lower realms.  In effect it is subdivided into a number of extra levels.  There is the realm of the ‘physical’ – the vibrational level we can perceive with our 5 senses and then some lower levels we cannot normally perceive one of which is ‘Hell’. If you see Hell, it is normally your hell!  

The upper realms then cover ‘Water’, ‘Air’, ‘Fire’ and ‘Aether’ levels.  The aether level is subdivided into a considerable number of sublevels – see the Inner court map.

All the other levels are subdivided into further levels, however, there is currently no agreement on the extra levels.  Each level is separated from the others by ‘Boundaries’.

The recognition of the levels and layers in various cultures 

One of the more fascinating aspects of this concept is that it appears to have been used throughout the world by disparate cultures which would have had little or no physical communication between them. It is as if the understanding of how the levels worked was ‘understood’ in a spiritual sense, by practically all ancient civilisations and cultures and all of them also proposed somewhat similar ‘levels’.

It is true that many people appear to have taken the water/air and fire analogy literally during the so called ‘age of enlightenment’ and scientists of the 18th century onwards have been very quick to dismiss the concepts without actually understanding the reasoning behind them. But the levels persisted throughout this bombardment of rationalism and materialism and still persist today. One of the most intriguing facets of the levels is that they appear frequently in the modern observations of drug users and in dreams and other trance states, as well as the hallucinations of the sick.
