Introduction | Definition | Origin | Physical Nature | Perispirit


       The exact, intimate nature and origin of spirits is still unknown to us. Even the intelligent spirits that communicate to us are unable to explain it, either from their own ignorance, or due to the inability of our language to express it. What we do know is that spirits are a creation of God, that God has existed and created from all eternity, that the creation of spirits is ongoing, and that the existence of spirits has no end1. The spirits tell us2 that each spirit is created in an equal state of simplicity and unawareness, whereby it's mission is of "self-enlightenment and gradual achievement of perfection through the pursuit of knowledge and truth", acquired through the experiences of trials and atonements undergone over the course of multiple, material, existences.
