4 Worlds (Hebrew)

In the Hebrew, Cabala tradition there is a notion of four worlds:
 
Will Atziluth
Creation Beriah
Formation Yetzirah
Action Asiah
 
In the Hindu tradition this corresponds to planes of existence.
In the Christian, neo-Platonic and especially Plotinian tradition, this related to what Collingwood coined the Great Chain of Being.
