Mani explains that the cloud is stripped from Five Places, ascends above this Great Earth, is then revealed and is visible in the middle-air. The cloud that ascends from the upper fire towards the image of the Virgin of Light, which she makes visible to it. Its sign is the flash found in lightning-bolts.
