The Eternal World Picture
 

The Eternal World Picture consists of 5 volumes that together contain 77 symbols with explanations by Martinus. The symbols show the invisible, spiritual principles and phenomena that, as symbolic imagery, are made accessible to our physical senses. The pictures are made up of figures, colours and lines, and constitute a kind of “map” of the core cosmic analyses that Martinus has described in detail in his works. Thus the student gains a visual overview of the elements of Martinus’ world picture, the symbol explanations providing the reader with a detailed comprehensive explanation of life and existence.
