The seven levels of creation is a basic science concept. The names come from an ancient form of the Hebrew language.
These levels are related to the density of the bodies that the souls who are at each level inhabit. For details about bodies, read Bodies – Anatomy And Physiology.
This set of levels is similar to the central teaching of the Kabala. I am told a different set order of the levels:
1. Shekna. This means very mixed up in ancient Hebrew. This is the lowest level of creation and is our level. The Kabala uses the word shekinah for this level.
The sh sound in ancient Hebrew means a reversal. It is used in many English words such as shake, shock, shirk, shriek, and shout. The modern Hebrew word Shabbat means a reversal day.
The Yiddush language also has some words that sound similar to shekna. They include shiker, which means drunk or a drunkard, and shiksa, which is a derogatory word about some young women, particularly a Hebrew woman who doesn’t have a lot of love or does not follow the rules for eating or who is loose sexually. It can also refer to a non-Jewish woman.
2. Malka. This means mixed up, but less so than shekna. This is similar to our words malcontent or malaise. The Kabala uses the word malkuth for this level. I am told it is coming to planet earth and will be an improvement.
3. Neta. This word means still caught, similar to our word net. The Kabala uses the word netzach for one of the levels of creation.
4. Yesa. This level of creation is the first of the ‘higher worlds’. The word is pronounced like “yes, sir”. It means ordered or made right. The English expression Yes, sir, has a similar meaning. It means it will be done or so ordered. The Kabala uses the word yesod for one of the levels.
5. Kayter. This is pronounced like our word “cater”. It means to take care of. We will cater your wedding means we will take care of it. The Kabala uses the word ketter, which it places at the highest level.
6. Bina – This is a still higher level. It is related to the English words benign, beneficent and beneficial. The Kabala uses a similar word for one of the levels of creation.
7. Hesa – This means the culmination. It is the highest level. The Kabala uses the word Chesed for one of the levels of creation.
As you can see, the order of the levels is different in the Kabala.
