This figure symbolizes the Eternal Order of Progression of a unit: as a nature unit, on the nature-side, within the sphere of earth, through the light world, the life world, the form world to the permanent physical world or Realm of Permanence; to the degree of breath-form;—then by way of the aia point or neutral line, as an aia unit, to the degree of a Triune Self unit, on the intelligent-side.

Fig. II-G

Sphere of Earth Light world Life world Form world Realm of Permanence or permanent physical world Line of progression of unintelligent nature units Line of progression of intelligent units Human physical world Degree of breath-form Balance Aia point or line between nature units and intelligent units

The oblique line of arrows leading to the point of balance downward indicates the line of progression of the unintelligent units to the Realm of Permanence; the line leading from the point of balance upward on the intelligent-side indicates the line of progression of intelligent units.

The symbol also shows the line of descent into the temporal human world of birth and death and re-existence, by the doers that failed in the trial test of bringing their feeling-and-desire into balanced union.

This chart indicates the stages in which the unit progresses in being conscious in successively higher degrees,—from being a primordial unit of the element of fire to becoming an ultimate unit as an Intelligence, trained through the perfect sexless bodies in the Realm of Permanence.

Chart II-H

Ascent on the intelligent side Descent on the nature side The unit descends from: the element and Sphere of fire, to the Sphere of air, to the Sphere of water, to the Sphere of earth through the four worlds: Light world, Life world, Form world, Physical world, through the four planes: Light plane, Life plane, Form plane, Physical plane, and its four states of matter: Radiant state, Airy state, Fluid state, and the Solid state with its three invisible substates: Radiant-solid, Airy-solid, Fluid-solid, and the visible Solid-solid substate, to the last degree of a nature unit as the: breath-form unit; to the aia degree. Then the unit ascends, first, as a Triune Self unit in the worlds, and ultimately as an Intelligence in the spheres: As a knower, thinker, doer, of a Triune Self in the worlds; As an Intelligence unit of the Order of the: Knowers, Thinkers, Desirers. aia point or line

The progression of a unit starts as a nature unit on the nature-side; passes through the neutral state of an aia unit, as the point or neutral line; is translated into an intelligent-unit, and ascends on the intelligent-side, first, as a Triune Self unit and then as an Intelligence unit.
