Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor


The ordinary people live here of three dimension ignoring the existence of a Fourth Coordinate, of a Fourth Dimension. It is necessary to know that beyond our three-dimensional world, is the Unknown Dimension, the Etheric Region. If we carefully observed the color of the distant mountains, we could see an intense blue, quite beautiful. It is obvious that the said color is the ether of the Fourth Dimension; we have been told that in a remote future the whole ether will be visible in full form in the same air that we breathe.

The modern scientists deny emphatically the ether and say that it only exists in the Magnetic Fields. The people of the Middle Ages denied the roundness of the Earth, supposing that this was plane. When Galileo affirmed that the Earth was round and that it was not still, he was about to be condemned to death. When demanded to swear that it was not round and that it didn’t move, putting the hands on the Holy Bible, he said: “I swear it; but it moves, it moves.”

So, although we deny the existence of the ether, although we swear that it does not exist, we will have to say parodying Galileo: “but it exists, it exists.” In that Etheric Region, in that Fourth Dimension, live the Elemental creatures of Nature, and this is something that we should understand deeply. To such creatures we will give the name of Elementals, in fact because they live in the elements. You know my dear friend, that the fire is inhabited by Elementals creatures; you understand that the air is also densely inhabited by that class of creatures and that the water and the earth, are inhabited by those same Elementals. The creatures of the fire, from the oldest times, were known by the name of Salamanders; the Elementals of the air are designated with the name of Sylphs; the beings of the water are called Undines, Nereids, Sirens, etc., etc.; creatures that live between the rocks of the earth have been baptized with the name of Pygmies, Gnomes, etc. It is clear that the form of these creatures varies very much.

The creatures of the fire are thin and dry, very similar to the cricket, although of much bigger size. The creatures of the air seem small very beautiful children with rosy faces like the dawn.
The Elementals of the water have diverse forms; some seem to be ineffable ladies, happy between the waves of the immense sea, others have the form of siren-fish, with the head of a woman, and lastly there are Undines that play with the clouds or live in the lakes and rivers that flow along their rocky channels. The Gnomes of the earth, the Pygmies, appear to be old men with their long white beards and ceremonious continent. They live normally in the mines of the earth or look after the treasures that are hidden somewhere in the earth.

All these Elementals of the Nature are useful in the great creation; some encourage the fire; others impel the air forming the winds; still others encourages the waters; and others work in the alchemy of the metals inside the bowel of the earth. Many other creatures exist that populate the forests, the deserts, the mountains.
