The second division of Amenti. The celestial
field of Aanroo is encircled by an iron wall.
The field is covered with wheat, and the "Defunct"
are represented gleaning it, for the "Master
of Eternity"; some stalks being three,
others five, and the highest seven cubits high.
Those who reached the last two numbers entered
the state of bliss (which is called in Theosophy
Devachan); the disembodied spirits whose harvest
was but three cubits high went into lower regions
(Kamaloka). Wheat was with the Egyptians the
symbol of the Law of Retribution or Karma. The
cubits had reference to the seven, five and
three human "principles".
