Jacob Boehme – Aurora – Chapter 13
86. Suppose a WHEEL standing before thee, with seven wheels one so made in the other that it could go on all sides, forward, backward and cross ways, without need of any turning back or stopping.
87. In its going, that always-one wheel, in its turning about, generateth the others, and yet none of them vanish out of sight, but that all seven be visible or in sight.
88. The seven wheels always generating the names in the midst or centre according to their turning about, so that the nave stand always free without alteration or removing, whether the wheels go forward or backward or cross ways or upward or downward.
89. The nave always generating the spokes, so that in their turning about they stand right and direct from the nave to the fellies of the wheel: and, yet none of the spokes to be out of sight, but still turning about -thus one with another, going whithersoever the wind driveth it, and that without need of any turning back or stopping.
