Chapter Summary

The abyss is an eternal nothing, which nonetheless fashions an eternal beginning that amounts to craving. Moreover, the spirit of the word that arises in the first eternal will discloses the wonders of the essential life so that there are two mysteria, one in the spiritual life and one in the essential life. For there is an everlasting beginning that re-begins itself forever, from eternity to eternity without number. It is the abyss. A wondrous essential life thereby brings itself to light. The wickedness and poison are nourished solely by their essences. This is why evil has always sought and found itself in the mysterium, as well as through its magical craving. So since two magics are thus in one another, there are also two magi leading them, that is, two spirits. One is God's spirit, the other is the spirit of reason into which the devil has insinuated himself.
