Symbols - What does heaven look like

Rib

The ribs and a rib take their symbolism from bone, they are thus symbolic of form and allied with crystal.  There is additional symbolism, however, in their shape.

Although it may sound odd, their shape is reminiscent of the rings in the Egg – the Levels and layers.

Thus a rib is symbolic of the earth level, the level at which form is to be found.

So if we now take the allegory of the Garden of Eden in the Bible, ‘God’ uses the archetype male software of Adam and uses it to create a Form based ‘woman’ at the earth level.

And as we have seen from the description of Lilith, Eve has intellect – she is the new Conscious self.

And by being Conscious with intellect she loses innocence.

  1. Genesis 2:21
    And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
     
  2. Genesis 2:22
    And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man
