When we look at the clear blue sky, we assume that it is a solid mass of blue, and we assume that the clouds are white. The truth is that there is no sky, there is only ether. Above the earth, there is a circle a light that embraces the earth's globe in every direction, so that the sky is actually a circle that covers the earth, in every direction, and protects it from outside influences. Thus, there is sky above us, and sky below us, and sky to our left and right. From every direction, there is sky, and from every angle, there is sky. The clouds are our glory, they tell us where we came from--pure and unadulterated water--and to where we will return when the glory of the Lord, the Holy Spirit, returns. Like the earth, he will surround us with pure and unadulterated water, through which no evil can ever penetrate. The earth, the blue sky, and the clouds are equivalent to our bodies, the blue halo that surrounds us, and our robes of white.
