Symbols - What does heaven look like

Foam

Foam is half way between water and earth.   Foam is thus symbolically Spirit on its way to becoming Form.  It takes on some of the attributes of the Platonic solids, being an intermediary form between ordered spirit energy and energy which has taken form.

Foam also takes its symbolism from that of the shore.

It is also sometimes used symbolically as an alternative to Bubbles – thoughts, or perceptions which again it symbolically is very similar to.

W B Yeats – Anima Mundi
Our daily thought was but the line of foam at the edge of a vast luminous sea; ….and in that sea there are some who swim or sail, explorers who perhaps know all its shores.
