Chapter Summary

In this chapter, Kephalaia compilers list the five great things that the Living Spirit constructed from the veins, brains, and the hard bodies of the Archons. The First is the disk which sits on the shoulders of the Porter. The Second is the arch of the column which is before him. The Third is the shape of the form of gehenna. The Fourth is the Seven Columns which he set up in the Great Sea in the Seven Parts of the world. The Fifth is the Four Walls which surround the passage.
