World

World also called

Universe

Place (Loka)

is typically divided into a series of Worlds (q.v.). In the West there is typically distinction between a

World Visible
Hidden World Invisible

This is further divided into an (Invisible) Higher World (Heaven) and an (Invisible) Lower World (Hell). Apart from esoteric traditions (mysticism, Cabala), the West has tended to focus on Visible Worlds. the West has also focussed on a Temporal World although there is a dream for an Eternal World.

The East, there is a basic distinction between:

1. Immaterial World (arupa-loka) Invisible
2, Fine-Material World (rupa-loka) Invisible
3. Sensuous World (kama-loka Visible

Historically the East has devited more energy to classifying the Eternal, Invisible World.
