Ideally, set an ETA for a few weeks out... then miss that. The ETA will get Fist all riled up, then when there's nothing in his inbox on midnight, he'll really start ratcheting up the tension.

That's really what's best in life, after all.

Thought the Autarch might enjoy this.
...then again, he may already know all this.


Quote:
Artist's Statement: The Painting is divided in four sections which represent the four spiritual worlds. Atzilut, Beriah, Yetzirah and Asiyah.

The Four Worlds: the main stages in the creative process resulting from the progressive self-screening of the Divine light known as tzimtzum; in descending order: Atzilut, Beriah, Yetzirah and Asiyah, often referred to by their acronym Abiya.

Atzilut; The World of Emanation: (lit. “emanation”); in Kabbalistic terminology, the highest of the four spiritual worlds, the realm of spiritual existence which, although encompassing attributes which have a specific definition, is in a state of infinity and at one with the Infinite Divine Light .

Beriah; The World of Creation: (lit. “creation”); more specifically creation ex nihilo; in Kabbalistic terminology, the second of the four spiritual worlds, the realm of spiritual existence which represents the first beginnings of a consciousness of self.

Yetzirah; The World of Formation: (Kabbalistic term; lit. “formation”); the third of the four spiritual worlds, the realm of spiritual existence in which the limited nature of the created beings takes on form and definition; the abode of the lower classes of angelic beings and of the souls of ordinary Jews.
(I'll take exception with that last bit...)

Asiyah; The World of Action: (lit. “deed”); in Kabbalistic terminology, this refers to the lowest of the four spiritual worlds, the final level in the creative process which includes the physical universe.

Can't say I have heard of that, but I know practically next to nothing about Kabbalah. Interesting, though.
