1:6: Nothing, except The Supreme Spirit can have a real, self-contained and independent existence. This does not mean that nothing else is real, and by “illusion” is meant deception by the senses which interpret falsely. Man is deluded by his senses and so cannot distinguish the real from the unreal.
1:7: All the Universes of Matter are contained within the Sphere of Matter and Mortality, which reaches out to touch the Sphere of the Holy Spirit.
1:8: Their greatness exceeds the bounds of man's most daring imagination, and even if man could penetrate through to their limits, he would still find The Supreme Spirit veiled and hidden.
1:9: The Holy Spirit flows from The Supreme Spirit, as heat and light flow from the sun, and, penetrating all things, holds them in form and solidity. The Supreme Spirit alone is unpenetrated by anything. He alone is One Pure Essence.
1:10: The Sphere of the Holy Spirit is divided into Subspheres, and the Sphere of Matter and Mortality is likewise divided. The Supreme Ruler of the Sphere of the Holy Spirit is The Holy Spirit, and The Supreme Ruler of the Sphere of Matter and Mortality is Nature. So all the material universe is governed by one set of laws called the Law of Nature. Nature is the effect and manifestation of the activity of The Holy Spirit operating in matter, where reality is relative and not absolute.
1:11: The earthly body of man, his moral shell and spirit container, is moulded before birth by following a soul pattern drawn by destiny. Once born, many forces influence the life of man on Earth, but he is also given the responsibility of free choice. Notwithstanding this, the life of any man can only follow a course set by destiny, but while on that course, he can do as he wills. - (The Kolbrin Bible: Celtic Texts of the Coelbook: Chapter 1 – Book of Lucius: The Spheres of Existence)
