The four visible side faces of the Great Pyramid of Giza reflect the four earthly elements Earth, Water, Air and Fire. The fifth invisible element Aether is represented by the invisible ground surface of the pyramid, the foundation on which the four elements are arranged, and at the same time, the divine medium that merges these four elements. It is the perfect metaphor for creation; the five elements, the five Platonic solids. The element Aether is the invisible carrier of all information and can also be regarded as the so-called 'God-field.' The ancient Egyptian djed pillar is composed of four individual pillars assembled to form a symbol of strength and creation. These four pillars represent the four visible earthly elements, merged by the divine element Aether. Together with the ankh and the was-scepter, these specific ancient Egyptian symbols (Ankh – Was – Djed) represent the 'divine creative life force.'
