appear: and it was so.
<1>As it was explained, "the
waters under the heaven"
are those consciousnesses which, in the process of crudification,
became the base for creating liquid and solid factors. <2>Now
in this stage they would be crudified further to create dry land
(solid factor), "Let the
waters under the heaven
be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear."

centripetal force, different levels of the universal elements,
which are ethereal, aerial, luminous (fire, heat, and light),
liquid, and solid, and all the elements between them, were created.

<5>The dry land, from the most crudified
consciousnesses (solid factors), was created ("Earth"). <6>Also
from the consciousnesses less crude than those which were used to
create the solid factors, the liquid factors were formed ("the
gathering together of the waters called he Seas"). <7>With
this, all the necessary elements to start the rest of the creation
and the evolutionary processes in the universe were prepared.
<8>Also with this, the seven worlds or
lokas were completed. The

luminous, liquid, and solid). <9>These factors are manifest

the universe and it presents itself in many forms.
