The appearances of
truth
which are of a higher
degree
far -surpass in abundance
and
perfection thosewhich are
in
a lower
degree;
for myriads of myriads of
things
which are distinctly perceived
by
those who are
in
a higher degree, appear as ouly a single one
to
thosewho are in a lower degree ; for lower things are nothing
but
compounds of higher ones; as may be inferred from
the
memories of man,
the
interior of which, being
in
a
higher
degree, far surpasses
the
exterior one, which is
in
a lower degree.

·The souls of men are in a higher
degree (thanthose
of brutes).3691. The reason
it
is said,
the
good and
truth
of
that
degree, is
that
goods and
truths
are entirely distinctfrom each other aceording to
degrees;
interior goods and
truths
are in a higher degree, and exterior ones are
in
alower
degree;
in a higher
degree
are the goods and
truths
of
the
Rational, in a
lower.
one are
the
goods and
truths
of the Natural, and in
the
lowest are the sensuousgoods and
truths
which are of the body. The interiorgoods
and truths,
or those in a higher degree, inflow
in
to
the
exterior goods and
truths,
or those in a lowerdegree, and there present theIr own image
...
Hence
it
is evident,
that
the
goods and
truths
..
which are
in
a higher
degree
are entirely sep,!:ratcd from those in alower one, and
so
separated,
that
the
interior ones, orthose
in
a higher degree, are able to come into existenceindcpendently of the exterior ones, or those which are
in
a lower degree.
He
who has
not
a distinct notion ofdegrees, cannot have a distinct notion .of intcrior andexterior goods; nor how
the
case is with the soul ofman
...
or with the Heavens

These three Heavens are most distinct fromeach other according to degrees

They who are in love
to
the Lord,
50
as tohave a perception of
the
love, are in a higher degree ofgood and
truth,
and are in
the
Third Heaven
...
andare called Celestial Angels;
but
they who are
in
charity, towards
the
neighbour,
so
as to havc a perception of
the
charity,
but
not
so
much a perception of love to
the
Lord, are
in
a lower degree of good and
truth,
and are
in
the
Second Heaven
...
and are called SpiritualAngels; while
they
who are
in
charity towards
the
neighbour merely from
the
affection of
truth,
so
as
not
to
have a perception of
the
charity itself, except froip
the
truth
by which they are affected, are
in
a still lowerdegree of good and
truth,
and
are
in the First
Heaven
...
and are called good Spirits. Hence
it
may in sornemeasure appear how
the
case is with
degrees;
namely,
that
those things which are in a higher degree, presentthemselves in an image in those which are in
the
nextlower one

Into
these degrees are
the
three Heavensdistinguished, and according to these degrees does
the
Lord
flow
in with Divine good
and
truth,
thus
withwisdom
and
intelligence, and with heavenly
joy
andhappinesa.3699". There are lowest goods and
truths,
and highcstones, and between them there are steps as of
aladder.

have beeninstructed concerning these degrees of life,
that
the
ultimate degree of life is
what
is called
the
external ornatura! man
...
that
the
second degree is
what
iscalled
the internai
or rational man
..
and
that
thethird
degree of life, which is entirely unknown to man,is
that
through which
the
Lord
flows
into
the
rationalmind, whence he has the capacity of
thinking
as a man,
and
whenco he has conscience, aI\d
the
perception of goodand
truth,
and, also elevation by
the
Lord to Himself.3952. The heavenly marriage
is
not between good and
truth
of one and
the
same
degree,.but
between good
and
truth
of a lower degree and of a higher one. Ex.
