Void (the)

 

Occurrences:  8 - “Void”    4 - “void”

First Reference:  Wisdom 18:23

 

And God took the seed, even the universal seed, and placed it in the great Deep, even the Void. And it did grow and swell because of the heat that came by reason of God’s great light and glory.

 

 

See:  Abyss, Areta, Deep/Depth, Eidos

 

Summary:  Similar, if not the same as, “the Deep” (W:18:23, 3:1:31), the Void refers to a reality that pre-exists space/time and physical matter. It represents a bizarre environment of ‘anti-space’ and ‘anti-time’ — a cold, endless darkness devoid of matter or energy. The Void can be thought of as a sterile, static sea of massless, unformed matter, existing in perfect symmetry and balance.

 

Scripture describes the Void as the realm of the Eidos (5:4:13), that Single Supreme Source from which all subsequent things would have their beginning. It represents the birthplace of unformed matter (E:1:5), and the environment in which there suddenly awoke the Supreme Universal Consciousness known as Areta (3:1:19-36; 7:1:1-3).

 

There is a curious correlation between the Void and the Demiurge. While the Chief Demiurgos, Yaldabaoth, and his dark emanations are often said to be occupying regions of the Void, their existence and influence is not exclusively bound to this environment or dimension (6:5:43; 6:6:10; 6:8:16; 6:13:42).

Notes/References:

 

“void of the great Deep”

And there did burst most suddenly forth, all the matter unformed, being imbued with gasses and energies of every kind; and the matter did move out in every direction with a mighty rush, to fill the void of the great Deep; to lay most securely the foundations of the cosmos which you see.

3rd Endowment 1:31

 

“void of space”

And the streams did move and flow and brightly dance, to soft converge into a mighty river; flowing, moving undulations of brightly dancing light; gushing through the void of space to bathe in light and deep intelligence, all the matter which lay unformed within the starry deep.

5th Endowment 12:8

 

“the void”

Seeing then so bright a star within the void beyond, even all the Gods did gaze in wonder at the shimmering, shining brightness; hearing deep throughout the Tael the voice of Azraella, saying: “Behold now the star of Dahmiel, who gave his life for me.”

How deeply moved those noble hearts to see so bright a star shining there within the void, to stand forever as testimony of one who sacrificed even his own life for the sake of many others, to give to Azraella his chance against the Dark.
