Aether

A realm of Pure Light;  it is virtually inaccessible to any but the true mystic.  From this place of pure Light there emanate Flames both small and large, columns of gold, pure rivers of gold and in addition gold dust.

A  number of the mystics who have ‘been’ to this realm have said that in terms of colour this realm has no colour or was ‘all colours’.  As such the description of it being Pure Light is reasonable.  It is ‘the source of all sounds’ and in terms of the feelings you get whilst being there they are expressable as ecstasy, illumination,  rapture, and joy.

Numerous would be travellers to this realm mistake the Fire level for it.  They think they are there – but they are not.

One of the reasons for the confusion seem to be that it is a realm from which flames emanate.  In other words there is a link with ‘fire’ through the flame.  But the flames have a different significance.

There are also a host of very confusing names for this level.  The confusion about naming the realm appears to have arisen in early times.  Aristotle in his ‘natural philosophy’ called the place aether or ether.  Then it became called  Empyrean, from the Medieval Latin empyreus, an adaptation of the Ancient Greek, "in or on the fire (pyr)".  Thus the confusion seems to have arisen in medieval times.

The different names matter because they serve only to cause people difficulties, but as I understood from the observations, this ‘place’ was the ‘highest’ you could go and you also always have to go through a seriously well guarded tunnel or tower or portico – see towers.

Many Near death and dying people see this place and are greeted by their Higher spirit as they exit the tunnel – the tower  - of their perceptions.

The aether level is divided into two an Inward court and [rather confusingly] an Inner court, both of which are shown in the explanation for the Inward court

Ovid – the Creation of the World

High o'er the clouds, and empty realms of wind,
The God a clearer space for Heav'n design'd;
Where fields of light, and liquid aether flow;
Purg'd from the pondrous dregs of Earth below.
